I think if i remember right when you complete the community center or the Joja community perks, the game kinda gave me the impression that it considered that the main mission

Sorry for the delayed response! I was away for all of last week. Hope you had a great Easter as well!

Thanks! It feels like I'm in the home stretch but I'm still a million miles away, if that makes sense haha. I'm trying to plan out what my play order is going to be for the games remaining, but alongside the cooling off of new purchases I'm trying to cool off on structuring my play-map for the remainder. I don't want it to become too much of a task as there are some games on here I really want to 'enjoy' playing.

I'm actually looking forward to getting to MGS. When I originally started it it wasn't the best experience, but upon reflection I think it was because I was forcing myself to do it at that point because it was an "". I'm a huge fan of the series, and I want to make sure I appreciate the final Kojima chapter. I appreciate your words and am hopeful the second time I choose to get into it I feel a little more... relaxed? I guess?... about the experience. Of course it could still go the other way but time will tell!

I'm at the point where I'm looking at what I have left and trying to plan out my "final 10". Good thing I left all the epic 40+/80+ hour games for the finish line haha.

And of course... when I finally do finish, the question becomes "what next?" (the answer is buy more games).

Hope you're well!

I will always say that I love your reviews. They are incredibly insightful and you are very honest with them. It's nice to talk to somebody who can become so invested in a game that he is able to dissect it and express his opinion in great lengths about it.

I do understand your points about Radiata Stories as I felt much of the same way as you did. I was disappointed to hear that you didn't like the story and humor. I thought that was the best aspect of the game. But, I agreed with you on the basic combat and I really liked your improvements. A quick travel would be super nice or maybe even a more detailed map would have been helpful. But, I did the same thing. I lost interest in recruiting everybody a good way through it and then I recruited the best characters I could near the end. But, character recruitment became very tedious and hard to do.

Congratulations on Super Mario All-Stars and Minecraft! I look forward to seeing your next PS2 RPG.

I hope Backloggery peeps had an enjoyable Easter weekend

I finally got around to correctly cataloguing my copy of the Super Mario All-Stars compilation on SNES...again. I had flip-flopped back and forth on whether to log it as a single game or four compiled titles, deleting and re-adding each time. I don't know how I convinced myself before that it wasn't a four title compilation--there's four games on the cart that have all been released in the past, albeit these are remakes. I'm sure this is how I want to track the cart now. To finalize the addition, I lopped off a quick SMB run to lessen the load on my backlog. Also, speaking of compilations, I took this opportunity to re-add the Super Mario All-Stars titles because it might be one of the last chances I get to add more games this year if I ask for another PS2 arcade compilation for my birthday and bottom out my progress for the year once again.

For another new game addition, I won a copy of Tekken 7 due to my success in another gaming website's community tourney. So that was pretty awesome! This prize will kick-start my drive to explore the Tekken series from its beginning at some point.

I'm still plugging time into Minecraft in my attempt to beat it before SGDQ 2019. I'd say I'm past the halfway point in what I need to beat the end boss. Seeing as the new 1.14 update released today, I'm going to do some exploring that I had been putting off until the new content arrived. Remains to be seen how much trouble the remaining prep-work needed to reach the end will cause for me.

I wish you the best of luck with Radiata Stories. I hope you enjoy it and let me know your opinion of it.

Yeah, I don't think I have a 'Q' game. And I only have like one 'U', 'Y' and 'Z' game. I'll just have to buy more games to do it one day!

I mean.. I don't feel great about it haha. I've had it since launch, acquired it as I did so many of my games - with a huge backlog ahead of it in line/desire to play. As time went on it just kind of sat there and for a few reasons - it always made me somewhat upset given how Kojima got separated from Konami, and some middling reviews I'd heard from friends and whatnot - I didn't get around to it.

I did *start* it at one point, got one or two missions in, just didn't go back to it. At this point I'm plotting out my "final 10" run as I get closer to defeating Bak'laag, and may leave it for part of the epic finale. Or maybe I'll play it next. Who knows! Haha.

Congratulations to Star Fox, my 525th beaten game!

Picked it up on a whim after listening to some of the soundtrack recently and realized I ought to play it. A faster beat than I expected (took only a single session), though I only went for the Level 1 Route. Not all that engaging, but still sorta fun. The gameplay was acceptable, though aiming was a little dodgy. The graphics were interesting as a demonstration of what the SNES is capable of with extra processing power from the Super FX chip. Aside from that tidbit, though, the visuals didn't look good. It was hard to tell the depth and placement of projectiles and enemies. On some levels the flashing lights were too bright and distracting for me, especially when in the cockpit view and the camera is so near to your ships' laser fire. I didn't like the game all that much, but it is certainly an important one that deserved a playthrough (thankfully the game was easy enough to not make it take too long). Oh, at least the chopped-up audio for voice lines was fun to listen to. Falco was the best. Wing-wi-wing damage!


Next up for me will be a little streak of PS2 RPGs. Yeah, I still have Enter the Gungeon sitting in my Steam inbox, but it's challenging enough that I don't feel like putting in the practice right now. Better to work through some games I have a better chance at beating.

Yeah, I kind of devoured Radiata Stories. Several snow days made it real easy to just marathon that game. I feel honored that you'd save my opinion about my game, so I won't spoil anything for you. Though, I think you will enjoy it!

My friend didn't enjoy Atelier Iris 3 all that much, but I feel like I have to give it a try. I enjoyed the Atelier Series not to give it a go.

I like that Video Game Alphabet. That's a neat idea!

Ten years on this website, and my backlog hasn't gotten any smaller. I guess that means I'll be using the Backloggery for a whole lot longer!

For a celebratory new game addition, I'm adding Final Fantasy Adventure. It'll be my FF game to play for the year, also serving as a fork into the Mana games and opening up a new series for me to explore.

Reworked my page note the most I have in years (maybe half of my time here?). Got rid of a bunch of corny and useless text in place for more AESTHETIC, MyAnimeList link, and My Videogame Alphabet at the bottom. All in all clear improvements.
