Dear Backlog: 02/21/20

Hello, Backlog.

You’ve been continuing to grow while I’ve been continuing not playing you.

The past few weeks have been a little hectic, and I haven’t really done much gaming at all since I returned home from my trip to Orlando. That was nearly a month ago at this point. I’ve barely touched Octopath Traveler, or Doom (2016), or anything else.

It’s kind of shameful.

In lieu of an update on my (non) gaming habits, I’ll take a look at some of the new things happening in the world of gaming.

Dear Backlog: 10/19/19

Dear Backlog,

It’s been a little while since I’ve written to you. I’ve been working a lot of hours, but I’m trying to sneak away some game time whenever possible.

I’ve been playing a few things lately, thanks to a combination of a few sales, previous purchases, and Xbox Game Pass.

Let’s break it down, shall we?

Does VR make you sick? Because it made Drew sick. Thankfully, he didn’t throw up all over Will, but it was a close one! The two chat about the negatives of VR and how those negatives can be dealt with.

Also, Will’s thoroughly enjoying Skyrim right now, Drew just bought Dandara, and he spent a little time with Ori and the Blind Forest. Spoiler Alert: He’s hooked on both.

Plus, Drew is a handyman, talk about rum and whiskey, and much much more.

Dear Backlog: 09/28/19

Dear Backlog,

I didn’t get a ton of gaming in these past two days, but I did put some work into Control. It’s one of my favorite games this year, but I’ve been sidetracked with a few other games since I bought it.

I love the way the game encourages exploration, and despite being third person, feels like a Metroidvania in a ton of ways. As you go through the game, there are areas that are inaccessible to you at first, but later, once you have different powers or accomplish different tasks, you can circle back to them and reach them. Usually there is a reward in a chest – some type of upgrade to your weapons or your personal stats. Unfortunately, the frequency that you find these upgrades does make these rewards feel a little uninspired.

The game’s is massive, so it’s a good thing fast travel is available at certain checkpoints. It makes getting around a little bit easier, but not completely simple.

I’m also really digging the game play. It makes me feel like a complete and total badass. I get to shoot dudes and then use their corpses as weapons and use mind control to take over other dudes and have them fight on my side.

It’s just fun.

That’s all for now.
