My Gaming Backlog

I just updated my game collection list for the first time in months. I am nearing 100 ps2 games yay!

For the first time I ever I decided to go through my games and list my backlog.

Here are games I own but have never even played once. I did not include games I started for a level and never went back too, so really this backlog could be 2 times as big if I included that. It is bad enough that I own this many games that I have never even really touched once. Some of these games are new purchases in the last few months, but many have been sitting in my collection for years.

Some Other News

I havent written a blog about my gaming shenanigans in awhile and I have played too many games to write in depth about them all. So, I will just briefly mention some of the games and stuff I have played.

Bought a new handheld gaming system

You guys are going to be so jealous!!! I just bought Nintendo's new cutting edge handheld system!!! No not the 3ds you silly farts, I got a DS lite finally with Mario Kart DS. I think the DS came out in 2004 right? Meh I am only 7 years behind with handhelds. I plan to get a 3DS in 2018 then haha.

I am really enjoying Mario Kart DS. It ads in the drifting and drifting boosts from Mario Kart: Double Dash on Gamecube and it still managed to control very well. The online mode is kind of cool too, but I wish you could race with more than 4 people online. Having Mario Kart on a handheld is really awesome.

Although I should say that I ran into something I really really hate in Mario Kart DS. In the balloon battle you start with one baloon and have to blow into your microphone to inflate your other 2 balloons. WTF. NO. I am not blowing spit over my new $130 piece of electronics like an idiotic assnut. I refuse. You can hold down the select button instead of blowing into the microphone like a mental patient, but it works slower. They actually put you at a disadvanage in that mode for not wanting to spray your saliva all over your DS...

Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus Completed and Sly 2 started (Playstation 2)

Played through Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus recently and I had an absolute blast playing this game. I had not played a 3d platformer in awhile and it was quite fun to do so again. The game had great level designs and threw in stealth gameplay to change things up.

I started up Sly 2 very recently and I am a bit dissapointed with it. It is still fun, but it feels completely different than Sly Cooper 1. They threw in some open world aspects into the game that sorta bug me. Also the game feels like more of an action game and stealth game than a platformer. Seems like 60 percent of your missions now revolve around pick pocketing people or following people.

Oh and fuck you Sucker Punch for having no option to turn off the inverted camera controls. I mean just CMON. I hate it when developers force you to use either inverted or noninverted controls. How hard is it to include the option to switch the inversion? I heard the Sly Collection on the PS3 fixes this issue, so I think I will stop playing SLy 2 on PS2 and wait to continue the game on the Sly PS3 collection.

Pac-Man Championship Edition DX (PS3)

Dammit. I bought a downloadable game a couple months ago. I felt dirty after doing so. However, I could not resist buying the game for 9.99 after playing the demo. The game is just simply amazing. I put in a ton of hours into this game already. I don't see myself ever getting tired of it. I really hope they release this on a disc though, so I can have a REAL not digital copy lol.
