2018 Summer Backlog: Mass Effect: Andromeda

It's safe to say that the improvements, the gameplay and the intriguing mystery will have me completing Mass Effect: Andromeda to see how far the game has come and learn what potential it actually has.

The Backlog: Dungeon Defenders

With AAA gaming becoming more and more homogenized and publishers taking fewer risks, I find myself spending more and more time with these little indie games that I happen to notice on Steam sales.

The Backlog: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

With Skyrim I decided to take a different approach. Instead of putting 10 hours in and then adding a few mods here and there, I figured I should just mod it straight out of the gate. Before I even booted the game for the first time, I had a handful of modifications downloaded and installed. But then things started to get out of control. 10 mods became 20. 20 became 40. Soon I had nearly 80 mods installed, changing everything from the density of the grass to the speed arrows fly to granting my dragon-souled warrior the ability to call for his last horse. But it wasn’t until I installed the amazing rendition of The Dragonborn Comes by Malukah as the menu music that things started to go sideways (she also does a killer version of Misty Mountains from The Hobbit).

The Backlog: The Witcher

The Witcher is a game that’s been sitting on my shelf for what feels like ages. Released in 2007, CD Projekt Red’s video game adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s novel series takes players into a world of monsters and magic.

The Backlog: Alpha Protocol

Alpha Protocol is a game that has always intrigued me with its premise and it's ambition. It sounded like a dream combination: Obsidian's talent for writing mixed with a cocktail of Bond, Bourne, and Bauer. Despite my love for RPGs, I unfortunately passed over the game at it's release due to the poor initial response. I decided to give the game a shot after reading a couple of interesting threads about it.
