What We’re Playing This Week – Backlog Game Edition

Jake Rushing – Pokémon Silver (Gameboy/Game Boy Color)

This week, I’ll just play Pokémon Silver. I’m  just past the halfway point since I beat the Elite Four for the first time and I just arrived at Kanto. Before I got to the Elite Four, I managed to evolve my Horsea to Seadra, and to which I evolved him to Kingdra, And he’s been a powerhouse since then. I also managed to capture Lugia and I added him to my team. By the time this article gets published, my Onix will evolved to a Steelix.

Jordan Nelson – League of Legends, Binding of Isaac, The Culling, and Pony Island

With my girlfriend working again I have a little more time on my hands. Will be trying to unlock some achievements, and rank up!

Terry Randolph – Tom Clancy’s The Division, Dead Space (Xbox One)

I’m about 75% done with the main campaign of Tom Clancy’s The Division, and have barely ventured into the Dark Zone due to uncertainty of wanting to try my hand out with how little progress I’ve made in game. However, I do understand that waiting too long will probably leave me in the dust when it comes to exploring the Dark Zone, so sooner or later I’ll be making that leap of faith and going in. When the time comes, I hope I’ll be able to do it with a couple of friends. Otherwise this game has been what I hoped Destiny would accomplish, and I can’t wait to write a review on it as well. It’s the first game that genuinely has me excited for a season pass for expansion packs!

I also downloaded Dead Space immediately after seeing it was the free Xbox 360 game for this month. This game was simply amazing – the atmospheric tension, the musical miscues and timing, and the lore…Dead Space is a downright classic that reinvigorated a genre that felt like it was starting to sputter. Definitely looking forward to replaying this game and experience the horror of it, especially because I’m craving a good horror game. Also, I think if I have the chance I might try to write it up for our Hall of Fame!

Otherwise, it’s a low-key week for me due to a half marathon I’ll be running on Sunday. My focus is purely on training, tapering, and preparation for the run. I’m excited but terrified — running a half marathon has been on my bucket list and I can’t believe how close it is!

Ben Fitzgerald – Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars and Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire [VGA Remake] (PC)

Broken Sword is an awesome game. A technical glitch that makes the game unbeatable is infuriating. Having only one save file is foolish, and I should have known better. So, I’m back to square one, which means the review will have to wait a little longer.

To burn off frustration, I am returning to the second Quest for Glory in anticipation of my follow-up review of the game. The adventures of Merrick shall continue in the windswept sands of Shapeir…

Also, I want to get back to my Star Trek video game project, so I’m going to try installing Klingon Honor Guard on my crappy replacement laptop and playing it. I really need to buy a USB keyboard though, or I fear I will be most unsuccessful.
