At Weeks End

Welcome back everyone to The Daily Backlog Weekend Edition! Since, it’s the weekend I’m going to try and keep today’s and tomorrow’s posts a little shorter than my typical stream of consciousness with no regard to word count. It’ll probably be something I keep up with each forthcoming weekend and holidays, just to keep myself sane. As if sanity is an attainable goal for me, HA!

Keep on track Patrick, you can do this!

So, with that in mind, I was able to make some progress toward clearing the backlog! I was finally able to beat Iconoclasts, my first game of 2019!! I know I’m like a broken record when I say this, but Iconoclasts is a fantastic game that I’d recommend to anyone. Especially if you’re a fan of metroidvania style platformers and super well done gameplay. The final boss was pretty simple and actually the hardest part was trying to beat that secret optional boss near the end. I certainly wasn’t going to up and leave that can of worms open. I’m also happy to say I was able to 100% clear the game with all collectibles. There are still a couple of trophies I could gun for, but that would require replaying the game on the new Challenge mode that just unlocked. So I think I’m satisfied for now.

Monster Hunter on the other hand is still the omnipotent game of the season. Always there, always watching. After another extended gameplay session, my Wife, my Brother and I are just about ready to fight the Zora Magdaros (one of the biggest plot points in the story). But I should probably have a bit more to say in the coming days.

Four’s a Party

So, with one game knocked off the list, it’s time to start thinking about what I’ll be playing next for February’s podcast. I posted a new poll with a few console categories to choose from. Once we figure out what category, I’ll then post another poll listing some randomly selected games from that category. Exciting!

If you want to cast your vote and influence what I’ll be playing in the next month you can find the poll here!

Well, that’s about it for today my friends, so have a great rest of your Saturday and I’ll see you again tomorrow!!
