    Starting to mount up for me:

    (Most of) Reach
    (Most of) Bayonetta
    Alpha Protocol
    the new Prince of Persia
    all the SP side of FIFA 11
    Fable 3 out at the end of this month
    4 rentals still remaining for October on my Lovefilm account
    Just Cause 2
    Crysis Warhead
    a few promo titles I've not touched yet and maybe never will

    Really going to struggle to find the time the way things are going - working 40-50+ weeks, and most of my work is in the industry so my motivation to game when I get home is unfortunately a little dissipated by being surrounded by games all day.

    I'm just about to start Red Dead, as I've got Mario Galaxy 2 waiting and Fallout 3 about 9 hours in. Plus a lovefilm rental will be on it's way soon.

    Going to focus on Red Dead I think, then put that on hold when the rental arrives. Fallout will be saved for when I have nothing else to play as a "constant backup" as it's one of those games you can leave for a few weeks and not really forget what you were doing. Should take me about a year to finish it like this mind...

    Looking for a new gaming podcast to listen to? LOOK NO FURTHER!

    This shit is getting ridiculous now.

    I'm working far too much to have time to game.

    Totally forgot New Vegas is out soon. Want Enslaved and Castlevania and if I had the time I'd have gotten both already. Then there's MOH to get from Lovefilm this month too. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit next month as well as 2 or 3 other titles.

    Then a bunch of Live Arcade/Steam titles that I want.

    I swear a month or so ago I had Just Cause 2 and next to nothing else to get on with.

    Just found this thread. It's nice to see some other people have gotten themselves in to the same ridiculous situation I have. Figure I'll list everything here and then work out where to start...

    Alien vs Predator
    Just Cause 2
    Deadly Premonition
    Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
    Dead Rising 2
    Siren: Blood Curse
    Killzone 2
    Yakuza 3
    Limbo
    Lara Croft and The Guardian of Light

    And i'm borrowing Enslaved from a friend. I'm going to try and lay off until Portal 2 now. But then there is Dead Space 2... /sigh

    You would think I would have gotten some sense by now but over the Christmas I just could not resist picking up a load of bargains. The mound just gets bigger and bigger :(
  • Deleted user 9 January 2011 23:05:30
    I have 50+ games on Steam that i have to play along with maybe 10 or so on console.

    I'm confident that i'll get through most of them since i've pretty much given up the WoW-crack.

    Oh and the mound has gotten even bigger.

    At the moment I am torn between going back to BulletStorm and finishing it on Very Hard or restarting Crysis 2 on normal. Started on the hardest difficulty and the whole pseudo-stealth thing is starting to grate a little.

    One question if I finish Crysis 2 on normal will any upgrades etc I have gotten carry over?

    In other words could I go balls out rather than having to sneak around the fucking shop.

    Oh and by the way probably added another 20 games since Jan sooooo cheap I can't resist.

    Upgrades will carry over, yes.

    Been busy with work so haven't really got stuck into anything since finishing Portal 2.

    Having the odd game of FIFA or Crysis 2 online at the moment.

    Need to get back into Bad Company 2 again. On hiatus, as when I get into it, it's all I'll play.

    Section 8 Prejudice SP needs finishing.

    The last 8 or so events in Hot Pursuit need finishing (so frustrating, to the point where I just decided to leave it for a while).

    Skate 3 has hardly been touched.

    To be honest, just trying to kill time between now and LA Noire's release.

    edit; the aforementioned Just Cause 2 needs finishing too.

    I have banned myself from buying any new games until Brink/ La Noire come out so I've pretty gotten rid of my backlog. I just have Darwinia to complete, although I'm not sure I want to finish it...

    Should be receiving Bayonetta soon from the swapsies thread, so should give me somethign to play...

    After LA Noir this week, it's Deus-Ex in August, Batman in October and then all the big stuff in November. That's quite a lot of clear time from new releases to work through the backlog \o/
  • Deleted user 16 May 2011 21:25:57

    216 to go.

    There isn't enough time in the day.

    216? How?!

    I now have no games on my backlog except multiplayer games. The only single player game I haven't done is Hydro Thunder and I'm on my last tournament now. I've decided to abandon Darwinia+ because I think it's rubbish
  • Deleted user 17 May 2011 11:06:23
    yeah 216 outweighs my paltry 5 games. /feels better

    after some moaning in the XBLA thread time for some necromancy...

    current backlog is getting a little ridiculous, with some massively long games in there as well.

    Red Dead Redemption & DLC
    Deadly Premonition
    Singularity
    Enslaved
    Metro 2033
    de Blob 2
    GTA IV Lost & Damned
    GTA IV Gay Tony
    Fallout 3 The Pitt
    Fallout 3 MZ
    Fallout 3 Point Lookout
    Zeno Clash
    Splosion Man
    Stacking
    Torchlight

    I've also got Tropico 3 on order, and am planning to pick up From Dust next week.

    Wouldn't be so bad, except I've still got 20+ hours of Tales of Vesperia to go, and could really do with some shorter games!

    This works only a little. I'm not doing anything right at this moment and since I have SO MUCH TIME I'm in no hurry to play any games. Managed to finish 1 game in the past 2 months. Bought maybe 10 in the same time frame.

    And of course things have gotten worse since May.

    Similar dilemma with Deus Ex - Human Revolution - Sneaky Sneaky vs Balls out.
    The game seems to reward the former rather than the latter. Not sure that sits well with me.

    Of course also have the likes of:
    Rage, Ass Creed Botherhood, Gears 3, etc to finish off.

    Been doing a bit of backlog clearing recently. Only new-ish game I've got on the go is Battlefield 3 but that's been put to one side so I can clear my backlog a little.

    First I finished up Toy Soldiers: Cold War. Then I finally returned to Just Cause 2 and did what I felt was a satisfactory amount of that (all Agency missions done etc).

    Now I'm playing Skate 3 and Dirt 3 which I might not 100% due to the amount of content in each. But they're both good for occasional plays and it's about time I put some time into them because I've neglected them pretty much since buying them in the knowledge that I can just return to them at a later date.

    Might get a couple of Arcade games after finishing the above but apart from that I don't think there is anything at all on the horizon until SSX next year. Might even cancel my Lovefilm account in the meantime.

    Well, my current backlog of unstarted and partially started games is as follows:

    Disgaea 4
    Tribes Ascend
    Bulletstorm
    El Shaddai
    Baldur's Gate Trilogy
    Mount & Blade: Warband
    Dead Space 2
    Deadly Premonition
    Supreme Commander 2
    Crysis
    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
    RAGE
    EVE Online
    Portal 2
    Terraria
    Titan Quest
    Magicka
    Two Worlds II
    Just Cause 2
    God of War 1, 2 & 3
    Final Fantasy VII, VIII & XIII

    Mirror's Edge
    Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce
    Far Cry 2
    WipEout HD

    And I've got Dragon's Dogma preordered for later this month.

    I'm trying to figure if I'm more addicted to games or buying things - I'm even hankering after re-preordering Diablo 3 after I cancelled it when I didn't really enjoy it that much.

    Can someone please convince me not to buy it?

    I'd cancel DD and wait for it to drop in price. Play bulletstorm as it's great and pretty short.

    the most depressing thing about this thread necromancy is that 8 backlog games from my post in last July are still resolutely unplayed.

    The second most depressing thing is that I've subsequently added another 16 games to said list.

    Mass Effect 3
    Metro 2033
    De Blob 2
    Gray Matter
    AC: Brotherhood
    Deus Ex:HR
    Batman:AC
    LA Noire
    DJ Hero 2
    Portal 2
    Rage
    Alice Madness Returns
    Gears 3
    Halo 3
    GTA LOTD
    GTA Gay Tony
    RDR Undead Nightmare
    Dodonpatchi
    Space Invaders IG
    Zeno Clash
    Splosion Man
    Torchlight
    BG&E
    ITSP

    ALso still halfway through a replay of ME2, and have the 'new' Shadow Broker and Arrival DLCs to play as well.

    Must not buy Minecraft, must not buy Minecraft, must not buy Minecraft, must not buy Minecraft, must not buy Minecraft...

    I have got a fair bit outstanding just now too:

    Witcher 2 (in progress)
    Batman AC (still playing a bit here and there)
    Binary Domain (still sealed)
    BF3 (would like to get online with this again)
    Gears 3 (still playing online)

    I have also just bought Borderlands again to play the DLC and ready myself for the sequel.

    Fez
    Trials Evolution
    Trials HD
    Toy Soldiers
    LC GoL
    PvZ
    Torchlight
    Fusion Genesis
    Splosion man
    Ilo Milo

    and a load of other XBLA games I have bought and either started/not started that I have forgotten all about.

    At least the pile of boxed games kind of reminds me about them, the ones hidden on the hard drive are bought with the best intentions, but I just don't have the time to play them all.

    My only hope is for the summer games drought to allow some catching up!
