Weekend Backlog: What are you playing?

January 14th, 2012 by Tony Garsow

I find myself sneaking in time for videogames every day of the workweek, but it’s when the weekend arrives that I truly put some respectable hours in. This is especially dedicated to tackling the backlog of games in my collection, as many gamers often wrestle with.

Today I’ve been delving back into the PC version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, unfinished after the modicum of hours I put into it before the Holidays came in full force. I’ve killed a handful of dragons to unlock a few shouts, but most of the main overarching quests have yet to see some fulfillment.

To balance the player character power fantasy style gameplay of Skyrim with a party and teamwork-focused RPG, I’ve jumped back into Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together for the PSP. Anyone who’s played Final Fantasy Tactics will feel right at home with Tactics Ogre, being that development team Quest is responsible for both games. Without rambling on too much, the title is an excellent homage to the original game, with an upgraded script that will make any fan of Smith and Reeder happy. (You know who you are, bless you.)

Looks like someone’s devised a Lightning mod… I’ll forgo any “jokes” involving arrows and knees.

A sampling of Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together‘s exemplary script.

The Final Fantasy series saw some action this week, with the release of the Final Fantasy XIII-2 demo on PSN and Xbox Live and Final Fantasy Origins for PSN. If you’ve had a chance to play either title, leave us a comment with your thoughts! Any other games sneaking into your weekend playlist? Tell us!

    Well not alot really, just playing King Of Fighters XIII for PS3 and recently bought Chrono Cross from PSN so I’ll be squeezing in some time for that as well

  • Cody

    What’s that picture of lighting from?> lol

    I’ve been putting some good time in SW:tor on my days off, aside from that I’m really waiting for 13-2!

    Usually during the workweek I just put some fun time in COD:mw3.

  • lalik

    I’ve been playing “Tales of Graces F” and “Tales of Xillia” but I’m playing Xillia a lot more because Graces is coming out in English soon.

    The demo for FFXIII-2 was beast. Certainly seal the deal for me getting it.

  • ChadAlmasy

    I had the steel book special edition of Final Fantasy XII on reserve back when it came out, and I made sure to pick it up the day of release. I’m just now getting around to playing it 😛

  • Cody

    This is random, but I just read the gameinformer review on ff13-2.

    It’s definitly an interesting read if anyone plans on reading it.

  • rattyinc

    went to game informer…no review….anyways im currently sprawling through dead space 2 and god of war ghost of sparta for a second time.

  • Meep

    I disliked the Lightning mod…
    …then I took a Gunblade to the knee…
    Had to be done.

  • lalik

    Speaking of Game Informer’s review on FFXIII-2, I think it’s pretty stupid. He wrote the dumbest review ever. He totally based everything on his opinions. So bias.

  • Shiva

    I just finished my japanese copy of FFXIII-2 and I loved it!
    I’ve also been playing some Skyrim in my free time.

  • Cody

    @rattyinc
    look in the Feb. issue # 226.

    @lalik
    I agree. His opinion on the story was entirely opinionated, which is okay, but he bashed the entire review because of it.
    At least he spoke out positively about it being his favorite RPG on a mechanical basis.

    Aside from that… I was shocked to read about the ending..I won’t say anything about it, since it’s a spoiler, but dang it’s not what I wanted to read ><!
