Hello 2013

Happy New Year - here we are in January! Gosh, last year seemed to go quickly, and I didn't make much of a dent in the backlog. Must try harder this year. The To-Do pile just shot up because there were a bunch of old games on the PS3 that I found out I hadn't listed yet (all the minis from being a Plus subscriber), and a load of bonus games in indie bundles that I hadn't registered on Steam yet. So, the current tally at the beginning of the year is...

Done: 275
Total: 3315
Completed: 8.3%

Blimey. That slightly sobering figure prompts my New Year's Resolution this year to not buy any more games. There, I've said it. And now I've written it down I'm going to have to try and stick to it. I mostly managed to avoid the Steam and GoG sales, so I'm off to a good start. As I mentioned, I am on PlayStation Plus, so that Total number will continue to slowly tick up every month, but I'll attempt to bring that Completed percentage up, too. It'd be good to see it hit 10%, which would mean finishing another ... (come on brain)... 56 games. Gulp. That's more than I thought it would be. Oh well, not sure if I will hit that this year, but it's something to aim for (...slowly realises that would be more than one game a week...maybe not this year, then).

I didn't get to play anything over the holidays, as I was away from home for most of it, so the games in progress are still exactly as they were. I did get the new PS3, which is nice because it's much smaller and quieter than the old one, but rubbish because of the missing PS2 backwards compatibility. Oh, and that old laptop was much sicker than I thought it was and ended up taking a trip to the tip. Ah well, I'll be on the trusty old PC for a while longer.

Big love to one and all, and I hope 2013 brings you all a spare 5 minutes or so a day for a little bit of button tapping.


  1. Woah. That makes my gaming
    'pile' sound measly, but I do play mucccchhhhh slower.

    56 you say. Pull your finger out.

  2. I know - not off to a good start yet, either. A bit further into i-war, but it's turning out to be a massive game. It doesn't help that I've got to get my publishing plan for the rest of the year done this week, either. Darn this work for getting in the way of gaming!

    ...don't suppose you have any book ideas, do you?
