Iâ€™ve been trying to clear the list of games that I havenâ€™t beaten yet so that I can get back to buying new ones without feeling guilty (particularly since the holiday release season is coming up). So far, Iâ€™ve managed to clear Assassinâ€™s Creed off my backlog, and am pretty close to calling Beyond Good & Evil done as well.
Just to give you an idea of what I need to work through, hereâ€™s a list of stuff Iâ€™ve bought but have yet to finish, in rough order of â€˜completenessâ€™:
Beyond Good & Evil (PC) â€“ just about at the end
Fallout 3 (PC) â€“ about to head to Rivet City, but I have no idea how far that is in the game
God Hand (PS2) â€“ cleared the first area
Company of Heroes + Opposing Fronts (PC) â€“ 3 missions into the Normandy campaign
Fallout (PC) â€“ yes, the original, fresh off GOG.com
Descent & Descent II (PC) â€“ ditto
Resident Evil 5 (PC) â€“ freshly purchased, played two missions in co-op
Oboro Muramasa (Wii) â€“ beat one level
So yeah, wish me luck, I guess.

Let’s play BB 😀
WTF does that have to do with anything I posted? o_O
But I haven’t played with you yet ;__;
I’ve probably asked this already but what do you think of BGE? I found it actually quite enchanting – it was nice to experience a pleasant little game devoid of the seemingly required annoying parts.
Do you think you’ll actually go back for Godhand? I find I have little to no desire to play the remaining PS2 games I never touched. I guess it doesn’t help when two of them are time sucking life thieves…
BGE is alright, I guess. Nothing about it particularly stuck out as badly designed, although it is kind of on the easy side (except for the final boss though, talk about a vertical difficulty spike). It seems relatively fat-free too – they don’t pile on the optional stuff like some other free-roaming action games, and that’s fine by me.
And yes, I’m definitely going back to finish God Hand. The first area rocked my face off, and I don’t want to deprive myself of playing the rest of an awesome game – simple as that 🙂
