Opinion: There are just too many games, man

We all complain that we have too many games. But why is that?

Five reasons to give up on the tortured fascination with our backlogs

It is time to stop letting this monster have such a hold on us.

5 ways to tackle your backlog

Do you have a problem with your backlog? Are there just too many games to get through? Maybe these pointers will help you out.

Tackling that backlog: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (PS3)

Ah yes, the gaming backlog, the bane of every video gamer’s existence! We all have one varying on different degrees of size, especially if you’re part of the PC master race and you’re addicted to Steam sales. It’s an every growing problem, and if the start of the year is anything to go by, then this backlog is not going anywhere! Luckily for me, I don’t play games on ...

So, about that backlog of yours. How is it looking?

Steam’s entire library is ...

Clearing out the backlog – 6 games to go

Ah the backlog, something every gamer has, especially you PC gamers with your Steam accounts. No matter how hard we try, we never quite manage to clean up the bugger. Well, a few months ago Jarred and I challenged each other to complete as many games as we could in one month. Without bragging, I won… by a lot (7-2). After that I’ve been trying to complete my backlog using the same leve...

How do you manage the gaming drought?

Every year around this time there is somewhat of a gaming drought. I have never quite understood why publishers don’t release games during the period from around the end of May until September.
