Weekend Sale: Role-playing tactics, up to 75%...

All part of the plan. Role-playing is tricky business, you know. There's number crunching involved, and a very intense layer of dress-up that needs to strike the balance between fashionable and functional, plus so much slaying of rodents. But it all ...

No problem.

Yeah, they got Connery to come in and record all new dialogue for the game. One of the extras you can unlock is a little behind the scenes video about getting him onto the project and his thoughts about it.

I feel ya' on the wishlist issue. I narrowed mine down to a simple and succinct list of just five of my most wanted and somehow, still only managed to buy a single game from it this year. Forgetfulness, money being tight, unexpected sales, impulse buys... It never ends!

Agree about GoldenEye, as well. That was a fantastic film, Bond or otherwise, and had everything someone could want from an action flick. That ending with the Marines is still one of the best.

Haha!

Well, I love that it stars Connery.
I love the 60s setting and aesthetic.
I love that it hits a lot of the big scenes from the film.
I love the fast pace of most of the action.
I love having optional objectives for each level for replay value.
I love the gadgets like the briefcase turret and Qcopter.
I love being able to blow choppers out of the sky on foot, in the Aston, or strapped into a jetpack.
I even love the box art.

On the downside, overall it's pretty easy, even on 00 Agent, and you can't skip cutscenes when replaying levels. It's otherwise a really solid action game and if you enjoy Bond games (I know you own a few!) or the original films, I can't really think of much of a reason not to pick it up. Especially since it's extremely cheap these days. I got a complete copy in very good condition off eBay for $10.95 shipped and there were plenty others selling in that price range.

I haven't been able to play the multiplayer yet, which could potentially make me rate it even higher, like with GoldenEye, but I really did enjoy the single player. It's the kind of game that's great to blow through on a lazy weekend.

The trailer is really good [Link] if you're desperate to be sold on it.

Ahh! Okay thank you. Sorry for taking a month to get to this, I haven't logged here as often. Okay perfect I'll add you tonight when I log on. Hopefully it only begins to expire once I turned it on. Haha, I think it is normal for people on the Backloggery to step in the pitfall of buying what pleases us before finishing what is before us. I know the feeling man, I have a good 20+ games on Switch I have yet to really play. Was going to just update the Backloggery soon.

Also, I would say my view on playing games has changed a bit. I've always been a completionist, but at the rate games are released and I buy them, it feels more sound to just enjoy them at a more efficient rate. Welp, now I'm rambling.

It's good to talk to ya man. I kind of wish we had a history log of all comments on Backloggery because sometimes I forget what I talked about with people, but they're always good people.

Well, after writing that I actually got the e-mail this morning but if you check on their website now, it's written like they sent the last e-mails on 7/31 and the offer expired then too. So confusing. At least that's taken care of now.

I e-mailed Aksys twice but never got a response. I don't get it, were we just supposed to spam message them and hope for a e-mail? It's not a big deal because I would have gotten the games anyway, but it is disappointing. Aksys really could have handled that better.

That's good that you finally got an e-mail from Aksys. I still haven't heard from them yet, they really are slow.

I haven't heard anything from Aksys yet, but it hasn't been very long since I e-mailed them either. Maybe they are waiting for the deadline first?
I'll give you an update if they respond, though.

Lol thanks!! I have been into DQ lately and anytime I'm on here I still see your old theme just because you had it for so long.

Oh I thought this was WoW but its actually Warcraft itself. Which is essentially the same universe story to my understanding but still, you should definitely play WoW if you like the lore so much!!! That is quite a memorable date, I would definitely mark a major milestone in your life and take the plunge.

Master of Unlocking: Majority of games are completed
I didn't even know there WAS a CE for Octopath until I went to pre-order it. The employee told me that they had one left, and I said, "ah, screw it, sure."

I didn't know that the enemies scaled either until I started this current run. I'm glad I'm following a guide that's giving me a TON of tips for card mods (to junction spells) and also how to best develop to GFs (mostly to unlock Enc-None), so I feel pretty good about it. I do think that VIII wasn't the best follow-up to VII because of the weird mechanics that require a good chunk of research to understand, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to remake it with either some updates or at least some better information on those things.
