Arc of Alchemist is a JRPG published by Idea Factory -- the folks behind some of my favorite niche games in the genre, like Death end re;Quest and Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force -- that's unfortunately more interesting on paper than in practice. Like many Idea Factory RPGs before it, the opening hours are … Continue reading Breaking My Backlog: Arc of Alchemist (PS4)
Backlogs are intimidating, but what exacerbates the terror are those meaty RPGs that require weeks upon weeks of attention. I've been skimming through my list of games, both digitally and the physical adventures atop my shelf, and narrowed down the RPGs I'd rather play sooner rather than later; the cream of the crop, if you … Continue reading Organizing the RPG Backlog of Terror
Just like last year, I'll be keeping track of my game completions throughout 2018 right here. This list will be updated as I roll credits on full games or their respective DLC.

With June coming to a close, I wanted … Continue reading A Mid-Year Backlog Update
The purpose of this post is to help keep track of my game completions throughout 2017, in a rarely seen optimistic attempt at slaying the never-ending backlog. To topple a giant, you either stab it in the eye or hack away at its ankles. I'm... not really sure where I was going with that, but hey, #inspirationalquotes and stuff. The bounty … Continue reading The Bounty Board: Tracking my 2017 Game Completions
With the Nintendo Switch on the horizon, I've organized my Wii U's backlog in order to see how long it'd take to clear it all out for good. Not necessarily because I'm aching to shelve the thing, but it just so happens to be the smallest of my gaming libraries. Although the console is backwards compatible … Continue reading Buried Under the Backlog: Wii U Edition
