    Assassin's Creed/Contentment/Great Backlog Burning

    Post  Paeter on May 17th 2017, 10:14 am

    That's what's on my brain.

    Just finished the second Assassin's Creed, ordered the next in the series for dirt cheap, and while I wait I'm having to practice right now what I'll be preaching in a few weeks as we start the Summer Of Free: contentment.

    It's been good for me lately. As is usually the case, my personal "Summer Of Free" begins before I start promoting it, while I'm searching for free stuff and developing ideas for it. A change this year will be to replace the focus on retro-games to a focus on what I will call "The Great Backlog Burning". For me, The Great Backlog Burning of 2017 began about a month ago, when I got on a roll with Horizon Zero Dawn and finished it. Then I got on a tear with Dragon Quest Builders, which I think I may finish in a month or so. Made lots of progress, though. And then over the weekend I finished Assassin's Creed 2. Of course then I immediately ordered the next one. So, two steps forward, one step back, I guess. But I'm probably just one or two nights away from finishing Far Cry Primal, and then I might even be able to finish Dragon Quest Builders before Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood arrives next week.

    All that to say, I'm back to a more healthy pattern of actually FINISHING the games I own. And yet I still have many more to go. Lost Odyssey (after some level grinding), Shadow Hearts: From The New World, SLeeping Dogs and Wolfenstein: The New Order are all more than halfway finished, with one near the end. Then there's God Of War 2 (need to find a walkthrough for this dumb puzzle stage), Castlevania "something of something" on my DS and Elminage Original, all of which I'm not as in to as the first group of games, but are still fun and I haven't finished yet.

    My hope is that (apart from a sale I'd be foolish to not conservatively take advantage of) I won't be buying any more games between now and July 11th. And after that I will be completely cutting myself off from all entertainment spending for four weeks as part of the Summer Of Free (details on that later).

    Anyway, Assassin's Creed, contentment, and the workout I've been stalling to get started although I can feel myself typing faster as the caffeine kicks in so I should probably get started now.

    THAT'S "what's on my brain".

    I'm kind of in the same boat with a lot of games i'm playing and trying to get Plats for I'm grateful that there isn't any more games coming out anytime soon that I want (with the exception of Crash Bandicoot but that's already preorder and paid for)
    So will you be doing a Backlog stream?
    Also what puzzle are you stuck in on God of War 2?

    YES! I'll be announcing that date on the podcast and channel this week!

    And I can't remember which puzzle. In fact in part it's not so much a puzzle as not knowing what the game wants me to do next. I plan on doing some goolging and youtubing to get it straightened out in the next month or so.
