The Daily Backlog | Day 17

Beginning of a Beautiful Backlog

Happy podcast day everyone!! Oh and happy Friday! Just one more day to get through before we can all skip taking showers and instead do much more important things…like play video games or watch an obscene amount of baking shows.

Tonight I start recording January’s podcast and since I procrastinated for the last couple of weeks I still need to finish up all my notes at the last minute! So, on that note (ha!) I’m going to try and keep today’s update a little short so I can get back to work on those.

This month’s theme was all about my favorite gaming accessories and it has been super fun and challenging narrowing it down to just 10. I’m really hoping you guys like what I’ve come up with. I’m excited to go through all of your submissions as well. You guys send me the craziest questions and stories! On top of that I’ll be reviewing three games this time around. So stay tuned for that. I’m hoping to have it all polished up and uploaded by the beginning of next week!

If you’re curious, here are the games I’ll be reviewing this podcast:

Iconoclasts (PS4)

Monster Hunter: World (Xbox One)

Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force (Switch)

Backlog Slacker

Since I’ve been so focused on getting these podcast notes finished I didn’t get too much time in on any of the games I should be playing. With ClayFighter it was back to fixing up my SNES pad so that those forsaken face buttons no longer stick. I think I finally fixed it after a very thorough teardown and an IPA clean (That’s isopropyl alcohol not beer…the beer was for me once I finished haha)  so I’m hoping that should “improve” my skills. Who knows, maybe I’ll see the end game one day!


And then I’m still juggling Monster Hunter and Fairy Fencer F. Really, what was I thinking trying to play a JRPG AND Monster Hunter at the same time. What can I say, surprise review code from awesome publishers will do that to a person. Last night I opted to focus purely on Monster Hunter and more gear farming ensued. I did encounter the Azure Rathalos though!! She is super angry and horribly aggressive! But that also means I can now start trying to work toward my “Tier 1” High Rank gear. And once I have that it’s all about powering through to the final stretch!

Something clever about seventeen…

And that’s that backloggers! Short and to the point. Something I’m not accustomed to! I’m really hoping that besides getting the podcast recorded that I’m also able to get some solid time into each of my games today. Fingers crossed!!

Have a great Friday and I’ll see you tomorrow!
