  1. When it comes to clearing backlog, you've gotta basically just experiment until you do what works for you. What worked for me was three main things. 1. Not trophy hunting. To me, it just didn't make any sense to trophy hunt when I had hundreds of other games to play. It was one thing if I was super into a game and wanted to keep playing it, but that's definitely not every game. I was able to cut down the amount of time spent on each individual game to get through all of them. The best part of doing this, is that once you do get through your backlog, you can go back to any game you didn't get the plat for and still get it, if you want to. 2. Joining the backlog anonymous event here on the forum. Having support from other people and being able to support other people made it easier to stick with the basic 3 out 1 in system. It had a little bit of accountability attached to it which also helped me to stick to it. 3. Having as few rules as possible. The more ways I tried to restrict myself, like doing certain genres, or only doing X number of games at a time, or only playing a certain system, always just made the experience feel like a chore. Especially the longer I tried to stick with it. Just play what you want to play at that time, and play how you want to play at that time. Want to play Switch game as you fall asleep while playing a PS4 game while you're awake? Go for it. Want to play your 12th RPG in a row? Go for it. Want to just keep playing the same game even though you're done with it? Go for it. Really, just limit the number of games being added, and if you're not enjoying something, just be done with it and take it off the list. That's really all you need to do to kill your backlog.
  2. DCUO - 0.84% Marvel Heroes Omega - 1.41% Marvel vs Capcom 3 (PS3) - 1.98% BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend - 2.12% Tales of Symphonia - 2.70%
  3. The Neverwinter plat seems weirdly rare for the trophies. I've been wanting to play an MMO lately, so I'm thinking about giving it a shot.

  4. Interesting. I was expecting them to do something different next, like maybe Superman. I suppose it could end up being a Nightwing game though. Or possibly be like the DLC packs and have it be multiple people from the bat family. Since I thought they had said that they weren't doing anymore Arkham games. But it may just end up being on a technicality. I can see them saying something like, "It's not an 'Arkham' game it's an entirely new 'Batman' game!"
  5. The first game I played on my Vita was Ragnarok Odyssey. It was one of the reasons I bought a Vita. That and I assumed we would be getting MH on it, but we never did...
  6. Official done trying to get the SO3 plat. It's crashed on me 3 times around the same area 3 times in a row. I really enjoyed the PS2 version and wanted to plat, but it's way too buggy.

      That's a real shame. :( Surprised they never patched something so gamebreaking..

      SO4 had the same problem with common crashing too. I just have pretty bad luck with this kind of thing. I've never been able to play Skyrim because I always run into game breaking glitches. :/

  7. Picked up Mega Man X Legacy Collections and FFXV Ardyn DLC from the sale. Pretty stoked about getting to play these.

      Been waiting for that Ardyn sale, so I can finish it off. Though now I have to probably wait until I clear some space, because that file is huge. :lol:

      The first Mega Man X Collection has the first four games. Has the ideal trophy list, nothing too hard, nothing too easy, but it makes you play through all four games thoroughly and finding those armor sets.

  8. Getting paid this week, right when there's a big sale and I'm pissed off at the game I'm playing. That's a dangerous combination. 😆

      Just don't add too much to your backlog to where you can't handle all the games.

  9. Looks like I'm finally getting the FFXV Ardyn DLC. May get something else too, but there's a lot of stuff I want, and I can't get it all x_x
  10. Attempting SO3's Maze of Tribulations again. Just going to be more careful this time.

      cool, how far you gotten?

      I'm up to floor 4. I stopped for now though. Keep just running back to town to save after dying yesterday and losing progress. So it's taking a while.

      hah, reminds me of my first run back on the ps2, its really a massive stepup from the maingame if you havnt grasped any of the exploits that requires a lot of knowledge about the game ^^', good luck!

  11. And I died after about an hour in the Maze by some stupid bullshit. Time for some good old fashioned rage quitting.

  12. Attempting the Maze of Tribulations in SO3. I did some grinding and made an OP weapon for Fayt to hopefully make it a bit easier. I'm also really hoping the game doesn't crash, since there's no save points. x_x

      About halfway through it loops back to the beginning so you can easily leave and go heal/save. So that was nice. I didn't expect that. I thought once you were in, you were in.

  13. I don't like to group the 2D games with the 3D games. So I'm not counting 6 or below in this. I still consider 8 to be the worst of the 3D FF games. It's debatable on whether 13 is worse though. I personally find 8 to be worse. Since the issues with 13 don't make it unplayable or frustrating, just boring. But I could understand the opposite. Anyway, 8 is literally a broken game. The draw mechanics aren't fun and lead to either unnecessary grinding just to cast magic, or having to flail through the story without magic. And then either you abuse the junction system and break the game, or it's ridiculously hard. It just wasn't balanced very well. Basically, they tried something new and it didn't work. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Trying new things is good, but they also don't always work out. This is one of those games where it simply didn't work out. I was really hoping with the remaster they'd do more balancing and changes to the actual gameplay, like they made it sound like they were doing. But they didn't. They just slapped on cheats so people couldn't really complain about the balancing issues and called it a day.
  14. Most classic style JRPGs do a great job with this. They tend to take you to lots of varied and interesting locations that help the world feel alive. A more specific example is Tales of Symphonia. Taking you from an incredibly small town to a regal kingdom, a ninja village, and futuristic bases. The contrast between the two parts of the game is vast too. You can really tell that one part is flourishing over the other. Another great example of this in JRPGs is Star Ocean 3. You travel between futuristic and medieval style planets and see different cultures and how they developed. Leading to a lot of really cool places to visit and an interesting overall universe. The classic Sonic games also have done a great job taking you to a lot of interesting places that make the world feel interesting. From the grassy green hills, to a casino, to an icey mountain, and to a flying spaceship. It all was varied and interesting, and it was always believeable. You'd never show up to a new zone and think it didn't make any sense (except maybe Sonic CD). It's one of the reasons I think the series has been going for so long. The world is interesting and varied. You always want to see where it's going to take you next. Even the (good) newer games have this. Bayonetta did a great job with creating an interesting world too. Especially combining both games. Seeing the contrast between human, angelic, and demon worlds makes for a really cool world. Most of Suda51's games also did a great job building an interesting world. No More Heroes being the most popular example, but my favorite being Killer is Dead. All the locations are a mix of bizarre and interesting, and fits well with the personality of the character you're going after. Lastly, I'll say Horizon Zero Dawn. The world the game built is one of the most interesting and impressive in the current gen. The present day is such a cool mix between old and new with the wilderness mixed with the machines. Then the more you discover about the world's past the even more interesting everything becomes. It really makes you want to seek out and discover as much as you can to unveil more about the game's world.
  15. Tried out Darksiders 3 since it's free. They screwed up again. Seems like they were trying to make it more like a souls game, but didn't fully commit to try and keep the game accessible. So it's a bit of a frustrating mess. I really want to like the Darksiders series, but they just always have at least one major flaw that keeps me from enjoying them.

      I was reading somewhere they patched in a classic mode, so you can have combat similar to the first 2 games. I loved Bloodborne so I'll probably try it like it is first. But may end up switching.

      Like I said above, it doesn't noticeably change anything. It apparently makes it so you can dodge out of attack animations faster and makes healing faster. I legit can't tell the difference though.

      Ah, well, that's a shame.. Guess I'll find out someday whether it's any good or not.
