PostSubject: Help Simian clear his backlog: Now Playing Guacamelee (Xbox One)   Sun Jul 06, 2014 10:25 am

Apologies to those who have done this before me, but thanks to the joys of PlayStation Plus (and Xbox Games with Gold to a considerably lesser extent), I currently find myself with the largest backlog I've ever had.  Some of these games I'd likely never have purchased myself, but they're now staring at me from the confines of my PS3/Vita/ XO HDDs and they're not going away.
 
I've got a paid Vita game to finish, then I'll be back into my back catalogue, currently consisting of;
 
PS Vita;
 
Tearaway
LittleBigPlanet Vita
Everbody's Golf
Gravity Rush
Guacamelee (Xbox One Super turbo version also on the list!)
Hotline Miami
Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate
Pixeljunk Monsters HD
Lone Survivor
Muramasa Rebirth
Doki-Doki Universe
Surge Deluxe
MotoGP13
Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time
Modnation racers
Jak & Daxter Trilogy
Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend
Sonic & All-Stars Racing
Uncharted Golden Abyss
 
 
PS3
 
Payday 2
Tomb Raider (2013, already played and beaten on Xbox 360)
Pro Evo Soccer 14
Puppeteer
Metro Last Light
Bioshock Infinite (already played and beaten on Xbox 360)
DmC Devil May Cry
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
Dragons Dogma Dark Arisen (already played and beaten on Xbox 360)
Remember Me
Far Cry 3 (already played and beaten on Xbox 360)
Assassins Creed 3
Spec Ops: The Line
Demon's Souls
Uncharted 3
 
 
Xbox One
 
Max; Curse of the Brotherhood
Halo: Spartan Assault
Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition
 
 
 
*Phew*
 
Like I said before, it's the biggest backlog I've ever had, and I'm finding it quite infuriating to even be considering buying new games when I've literally not touched the majority of this lot.  Before I set up a poll with everything on it, I need a few days to hear out people's suggestions, then I can make a poll based on the popular choices and go from there. So, RD, I need your help.  You know what to do.

I feel like your list is a little long to consider games you've beaten on another platform already as part of your backlog. I've heard good things about Remember Me, Spec Ops: The Line and Metal Gear Rising from different sources though.

Play Hotline Miami, Demon's Souls and Revengeance, snap the DmC and Asscreed 3 discs, reconsider replaying games you've already finished on other platforms and postpone games that don't ever end like Payday and Pro Evo because games that don't end are a trap and will stop you from ever finishing the rest.

I agree about postponing games already played on another format, but they're on the PS3 Hard drive so made the list. I did start Remember Me and quite enjoyed it, but got distracted by other titles.

They're all digital titles, so any disc snapping will have to be metaphorical! Are DmC and AC3 that poor? Demon's Souls is something I'm really looking forward to, especially as Dark Souls was so good, but I'm unsure if I should try and get the more linear, less time-consuming games out of the way before jumping into another time sink.

You could press the delete button with some heart put into it. Concentrate hard and imbue your thumb with absolute disdain for all unholy abominations in this world and strike true using all your might.

Guacamelee, MGR, and Spec Ops should be your priorities.

Is it worth playing Guacamelee twice, does the Vita versions portable-ness make it worth playing alongside the XO's Super Turbo Championship version? Or shall I forgo one in favour of the other?

You'll play it more than once anyway most likely, to find everything. Play the xbone version for the extra content.

Are you really going to play Blazblue? The story is a convoluted mess and the cast is somewhat weird... Unless you are into lolis or a furry.

I've no idea if I'll play it or not, it's one of the games I've not yet played once. It was free on PS Plus however, so it's on the list.

Hotline Miami, Guacamelee I probably had the mos fun with on that list. Gravity rush is decent but save it till closer of the release of the sequel, its a pain getting to grips with the controls after a while.

I honestly preferred Demon's Souls to Dark souls and you loved that, keep in mind its longer and your backlog will probably add up in the meantime.

Jak Trilogy was cross Buy so you have the PS3 versions play it on that instead, I honestly thought Jak 2 was kinda crap the first game is briliant as a platformer though.

I second Spec ops its a fun game, nothing groundbreaking but its fun and finished in probably 8 hours.

We should all do a group play of LBP Vita, me, moose, TTB have it and I wouldn't mind trying some of the 4 player puzzles.

Games that are crap, you should drop right to the bottom of your list:
DmC (not even worth paying to check how bad it is)
AssCreed 3 (i finished and enjoyed all asscreed games and I feel like an idiot playing it through to see the conclusion of the story as it gets dumber)
Metro Last Light (boring as fuck, one of the only games in ages I failed to even finish a playthrough of as it was so bad and had godawful AI)
Puppeteer (awful, I intended to write a review but it would've been so full of vitriol I couldn't have done it because I'd have looked unprofessional)
Doki Doki Universe (Glitchy broken mess, seems to be unplayable due to freeze issues)

Yeah, Puppeteer was disappointing. I didn't finish it. The graphics and general presentation are amazing, but the gameplay was so simple that I lost interest pretty quickly.

Spec. Ops was damn fun.

Remember Me More like forget me. (Pretty though)

Bioshock Infinite I thought was excellent but I don't think I got as much out of it as I did the first Bioshock.  Certainly a must play.

Uncharted 3 What are you waiting for?!

I've still got Guacamelee on the Vita, but will likely delete it soon to make room, so any Guacamelee gameplay will be the newly released Super Turbo edition.

Looks like it's going to be Guacamelee.

Right, so stopped cocking around on the Vita and PS3 and got stuck in to Xbox One's version of Guacamelee. And it's great. The graphics are wonderful, the variety between the satisfying combat, puzzles and platforming is just about perfect and I just saw a highly amusing homage to the classic Super Mario Bros games.

If you don't spot around 10 homages every 30 minutes you're a terrible person.

Exactly why I cursed you for making me buy EDF 2025. Xbox Games for Gold just ticked over for a new month too, so I've got another two XO games on the list.
