July Gaming Backlog Update

Another month, another update! Starting this month I’ll post smaller updates in the “About Me” box on my backloggery page, with the intention of writing more here.

July killed me a little. Hence the featured image. July both physically and mentally drained me, and also, in-game, literally killed me thousands of times, notably in Hotline Miami (which I haven’t beaten), Mirror’s Edge, Remember Me (why did I decide Hard mode was a good idea?), and 999.

During the month, I completed two games, beat ten, and earned two platinum trophies, in ラブライブ! School idol paradise Vol.2 BiBi and ラブライブ! School idol paradise Vol.3 lily white.

But, I must admit, these were probably the second and third easiest Platinum trophies I’ve ever earned, respectively.

End of Month Backlog Reckoning:

Unbeaten: 400

Beaten: 98

Complete: 45

July Goal Results

In June, I set some very specific goals for July. Starting this month, I’m going to hold myself more directly accountable for my successes and failures. Here’s how I did:

Goal Deadline Result
Get Unbeaten games lower than 400, or beat 8 games (whichever takes more) July 31 Got Unbeaten games down to 400 and beat 10 games
Persona 4 Golden (Vita) – FOR REAL THIS TIME July 31 Advanced about 2 months & cleared one dungeon, but still not done
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 (Vita) – its sequels are waiting… July 31 Didn’t play it at all
Mirror’s Edge (PS3) July 31 Beat
Remember Me (PS3) July 31 About 50% complete
999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors (NDS) July 31 Beat
Elite Beat Agents (NDS) July 31 Beat

Goals for August and beyond

Starting this month (having experienced defeats re: lengthy JRPGs), I will be setting longer-term goals as well.
