Checkpoint: Living in the Backlog Edition

I’ll admit it. All these GIFs, screen caps and commercials of Grand Theft Auto V does make me regret not pre-ordering it during FutureShop’s E3 promotion.

I’ll get over it though. The need to clear the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 backlog prevails. I just looked through my shelf and forgot I had a few outstanding classics that need completion.

  1. Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection (both games)
  2. God of War: Ghost of Sparta
  3. Injustice: Gods Among Us

I have Rayman: Origins “trophy run” to complete as well.

Injustice was an unexpected get. For whatever reason, a Costa Rican account signing in to  the Moroccan Xbox Live! Marketplace were able to download a handful of games for free including Injustice: Gods Among Us, Sonic Adventure, Flashback and Ikaruga.

I don’t like Mario & Luigi: Dream Team very much. It continues to fight me with its tutorials and lame jokes. These jokes aren’t fun puns; they just fall flat. It’s a combination of the art style and the anime influence. I found the Paper Mario series’ writing more entertaining.

I’ll stick with it but I’m just treating it like a MMORPG at this point — just give me the quest so I can move on.
