  1. Does backloggd allow you to import your various libraries or is it a manual process? I currently use the GOG Galaxy client and tag games to categorise them, which is relatively painless.
  2. 2 weeks without a purchase, 50 to go I think once I lose the shopping ‘addiction’ it’ll be easy, I own a lot of titles I want to play and they will last me for years. Now playing: God of War
  3. I’m on my first play through on PS5 and really enjoying it. Yes there are tomb raider vibes etc. but it’s all nicely put together and very slick, with a ‘weighty’ feel to the gameplay. If I hadn’t started in Story mode I likely would have bounced off of the game straight away, it’s a bit easy at times but I don’t have time to die and retry repeatedly.
  4. I brought the Wii U out of retirement briefly and it reminded me of why I stopped using it - the range on the gamepad is terrible. It was great when I first got it but progressively worsened over time, and is now pretty much unusable. I’m reading some threads about ‘replacing the wifi chip’ but they don’t seem particularly helpful - has anyone successfully tacked this issue?
  5. The last episode zipped past, really enjoyable. I can’t believe there won’t be any more.
  6. Sixaxis / Dual Shock 3 - I don’t know what they did to the design of that pad but it was bloody uncomfortable, even thinking about it now makes my hands ache. DS1/2/4, no problems at all.
  7. Game of the Year 2021 A1. Guardians of the Galaxy - I loved the films and it's been a long wait for Vol. 3, the Game hits all the right notes. A2. Age of Empires IV - I put many hours into AoE2, this almost feels like coming home. A3. Returnal - Feels great, excellent graphics & soundscape, I hope to put more time into it this year. A4. Bowser's Fury - Great twist on a great game. Game of the Year (premiered anywhere pre-2021) B1. Wreckfest - Played the heck out of this on PC, started again on PS5. Utterly sublime racing fun. B2. Super Mario 3D World - I played SMW many times on the Wii U, great to have it again in portable mode. Bowser's Fury was a bonus I did not expect. B3. Hades - Just one more go! Biggest Disappointment of the Year Z1. Ratchet & Clank - I should have known better, I found the PS4 version rather boring. It's very pretty, enjoyable in places, can't say much more for it. Z2. Forza Horison 5 - Another one where I should have known better (at least I didn't pay for it), a weird unfocused racing game - lots to do, nothing seems to matter, I just don't get it. Visual Design of the Year V1. Guardians of the Galaxy V2. Returnal V3. Ratchet & Clank Writing of the Year W1. Guardians of the Galaxy Format of the Year F1. Xbox (Game Pass) Publisher or Developer of the Year P1. Microsoft
  8. To actually stick with & complete some of the games I already own and not be tempted to buy more (that I probably won't play until they're free).
  9. I'm also aiming for a zero spend year, although I will continue to claim free and subscription games (I have PS+ & GP Ultimate). Generally every game I buy ends up being free before I get around to playing it properly anyway.
  10. 360/PS3/Wii is Retro to me now, the line has to move at some point. To my son anything that requires optical discs is Retro (he’s never had to use one). On the other hand my memories still tell me the original Gameboy is ‘fresh’ and the SNES is next level.
  11. The link to 2021 appears to be broken.
  12. Quite a few of them, yep. I love racing games, but I don't understand Forza Horizon - it seems more of a 'car rpg' than a racing game. Even Forza 7 was too waffly for me.
  13. I (foolishly?) thought this would be free, apparently it isn't. https://www.polygon.com/22846347/final-fantasy-vii-remake-upgrade-ps-plus-intergrade-episode-intermission
