The Woeful 108 – Quarterly Update 2

I outlined my plan to deal with my backlog here and then I updated it here. So how did quarter 2 go?

While I never wanted this to be a target list I was a little surprised by how few games I finished in Q1. Though as I mentioned it did work fairly well to curtail my spending. Q2 was unfortunately a little worse on both fronts. As it’s the end of July this is going to be a “special quarter”. Now that does mean it includes the Steam sale, which unsurprisingly hit the wallet a little hard. Though not as bad as it could be, I spent around €60, so the price of one new game. Oddly enough it was mostly DLC. If only I’d been so strong in other areas. I’d The Last of Us and Europa Universalis IV pre-ordered so I’ll let myself off the hook for them. I also burned out on Kickstarters to a large extent and only spend around €20 there. However I’ve no excuse for Shin Megami Tensei IV and Dynasty Warriors 8. So around about €200 including pre-orderes. Which I’m happy enough with as it equals out to about one game a month.

Though I only finished three games. Which is pretty shitty. I did get back into MMO’s and played a fuckload of Tera which certainly didnt help. I finished Atelier Rorona (great), The Last of Us (fucking amazing) and Marvel Heroes (terrible). I’m also going to cross off Serious Sam 3, thankfully I picked it up on sale, because when I tried it out it was extremely disappointing. I also finally tried Eador, now that its been patched into something playable, really enjoyed it.
