THE BACKLOG Bonus


The Backlog is us taking a moment to discuss the many games we are playing and would like to be.

 

This is a bit of an impromptu recording. We weren’t sure if we were going to post this or not. That said, we DO think this will become a regular thing.

I’m (Shane) thinking about calling it “The Backlog.” For a specific reason, however. Both Alex and I, are in the middle of plowing through a “bucket list” of games. My list consists of much more resent games, while his consists 16bit and 32bit era RPG’s. Marc is often playing multiple games at once.

The Last GuardianFinished
World of Final Fantasy – Playing Now
Rise of the Tomb Raider – Playing Now

Gears of War 4
Uncharted 3 and 4 – Playing 3 Now
Gravity Rush
Nier Automata

But wait there’s more:

Bravely Default
Bravely Second – End Layer
Ocarina of Time 3D
Majora’s Mask 3D

Marc’s List:
