Consider Yourself a Hero: Majority of games are beaten
I must say that is a lofty and fantastic personal goals. It's a great way to grow as a person and as a gamer. It's an incredibly good way to gain skills, learn new ways of thinking and having that ability to stick out with a problem until it is completed. I commend you for it and I hope that you continue that process for a long time.

Unfortunately, I am the exact opposite. I know I give up way too easy on problems when they frustrate me and I just want it to be done. I rely way too much on Walkthroughs to help me through games as I cannot remember the last time I blindly played a game. Thankfully, spoilers never bothered me too much as I can't remember the last time a spoiler truly ruined an ending for me.

I do hope that you continue the process and grow more as a gamer and as a person. Enjoy your spooky games in Halloween and I hope that Atelier Iris 2 is better than the first one!

I love rally racing and I find this photo hilarious. Whenever I look at it I imagine how that dude in the suit, probably an early XX century gentleman rally driver invited some chicks for a ride in the mud. And those face expressions It really makes me smile. As for the real origins and the story of this picture -- I know nothing about it. Just found it in them internets.

--Personal Note--

With the timing this weekend, I'll start by wishing all Canadian backloggers a happy Thanksgiving! May your celebrations be merry, your plates full, and your backlogs manageable! Ok, now on to the reason for this post.

Spooktober 2017 Gaming

I spent early October clearing the way for a horror-filled addition to my Steam collection. Outlast is regarded as one of the scariest games released in years, and a perfect way to get me spooked. Without knowing much about it, I anticipate Outlast will be the scariest game I've ever played, surpassing Amnesia: The Dark Descent and the Fatal Frame series. If I can pull myself together enough to beat it, I will then proceed with two mildly appropriate titles in my collection--Half-Life: Opposing Force followed by one of the DLC packs for Metro Last Light. They aren't true horror titles, but October is the best time of the year to knock them off my backlog. The last game I have dedicated to the month will be the Hellfire expansion to Diablo 1, arriving in the mail shortly.

After all those, I'll be filling up my Steam inbox for the rest of the year with the X-COM: Complete Pack containing the first five games in the series. I aim to beat the original this year, preferably before the long-delayed TF2 update arrives (if it even does...there's really no telling or guessing anymore when it'll be ready).

Of course, the Spooktober games will only be played after dark, so my daylight gaming will return to the handheld + console titles I've put off while working over my Steam collection. There's an extremely tempting craigslist ad with a phenomenal PS2 collection just waiting for me, but I can't court Bak'laag until I finish my current inbox. After all, it's rude to ask for a second helping without first cleaning off one's plate! I need to be thankful for the games I own by beating them before adding more.

Consider Yourself a Hero: Majority of games are beaten
Oh Man, Atelier Iris 2! I am so excited to hear about that game from you. I beat that game 2 years ago and it was one of my favorite games from that year. I really enjoyed the first two titles in the series and it is hard to pick which one I prefer. I've heard mixed reviews of Atelier Iris 3, but since I enjoyed the first two so much, I just have to pick that one up as well.

I have always been curious about your // requirements, so thank you for clearing that up. That is a very unique system and I like that you are using your own experiences for them. With my dwindling, I've had a desire to go back and my games. I kind of like to think of my Backlog as like an hourglass and everything is funneled into a . It may take forever, but at least everything is moving.

I have had a complicated relationship with the Shin Megami Tensei series. I have played 3 of them and I hated all 3 of them. I played Persona 1 and 2 & Nocturne. They were all brutally hard, very grindy and didn't make a whole lot of sense. Usually, I would have had removed the entire series from my Wishlist, but I'm still compelled to play them. I've heard Persona 3 & 4 are completely different and that Digital Devil Saga is really good too. I'm willing to give them a chance, but I have been burned before on the series.

No judgement here on Raphael. Isn't he one of the new people in Soul Calibur II? I've hardly touched him, but I would be willing to give him a chance as he seems pretty cool!

Removing Steam Games: "D" Titles

Last removal post for a while. October-themed gaming will take precedence once I clear the way to add a new creepy Steam title. After that, I'll clog up my Steam intake for the rest of the year with a bundle of games (more on that in October).

This time, I'm taking a critical look over and addressing all my listed Steam s that start with the letter "D." First, the games that won't get the axe here.

Darksiders and Dungeons of Dredmor are two games that I actually want to beat, so they will be my priority before Spooktober gaming---hopefully they won't take too long to finish.

DEFCON and Dota 2 are questionable items, but they're being ignored for now. In DEFCON's case, I'm going to remove it at a later point with a separate batch of games. In Dota 2's case, despite the likelihood that I never play another match in my life, I'm nonetheless waiting on the big Backloggery update. From what I saw of the previews, we'll get a "Multiplayer Only" demarcation, which I assume will serve like a more specific form of . There's a good number of games in my collection which will receive this new "Multiplayer Only" marking (some currently , some currently ), and Dota 2 is among them.

Lastly, I was going to remove DiRT: Showdown, but, as it turns out, this game was recently discontinued from the Steam store over licensing issues. I have an obsession with hoarding as many discontinued games as I can get (they feel like a rarified trophy on my Steam account), so I'll keep it for that reason. Given my nature, I'll require myself to play through the first three games in the series before reaching this one, but that's just par for the course with my neurotic brain.

Which just leaves...

Dino D-Day - Another free addition from an indie game bundle. This title is multiplayer only, which makes it quite painless for me to remove. I only really need one multiplayer title on PC to sink time into, and my game of choice is Team Fortress 2. I haven't played TF2 in months (STILL waiting on that big update...), which shows just how little I need ANOTHER multiplayer game on top of that. Sure, I'm keeping Dota 2 around, but Dota has more sentimental (not to mention financial) value tied to it that I'd rather keep in my account. To this day, I've never played a minute of Dino D-Day, and I don't ever plan to now that it's gone. To justify this removal, I don't need to mention the user reviews that describe the servers simultaneously being dead and vacant yet full of hackers, but those descriptions are now icing on the boot that kicks this game out of my collection.

As a result, -1 from Steam system.

I was expecting more than a single cut with this update, but I saved DiRT: Showdown at the last minute (intuition told me that it might be removed from the store). With a total of 18 titles removed from my Backloggery account and thus my Steam account, I'd say that's enough for the year. Glad I got the ball rolling on this backlog clean-up project. More to come next year! Until then, may I diminish my count the honest beating them.
