August Gaming Backlog Update

Well… this month happened. I was doing somewhat well, but then the beginning of the academic year started, I was out of town for extended periods of time, and I got distracted with playing with some website things… all of which contributed to a pretty significant failure on my set goals.

I did have the opportunity to play a few incredibly beautiful and fun rhythm games. IA/VT Colorful is one of the most gorgeous games I’ve played recently, coupled with some pretty incredible music. After enjoying that for awhile (and actually unlocking the credits), I moved on to Taiko no Tatsujin V Version – which I have not yet managed to beat (either in quest mode or otherwise). I also am guilty of splurging on not just one, but two Humble Bundle packs full of games for Steam I haven’t even touched yet…

During the month, I beat only four games, completed two, but I did manage to earn one platinum trophy, in Remember Me. After clearing hard mode, the rest of the trophies were pretty much a cake walk.

End of Month Backlog Reckoning:

Unbeaten: 417 17

I’m going to be a little less specific and go where the winds take me in order to try to get my progress up. I am still going to try to beat the Persona 4 Games before Persona 4 Dancing All Night comes out.

Beat any ten games. (To match the number I beat in July.) September 30
Persona 4 Golden (PS Vita) September 29
Persona 4 Arena (PS3) September 29
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (PS3) September 29

Until Next Time!

With only four goals, but not many specifics… let’s see how this goes. Aiming for all green next month!
