I’ve amassed over 200 games for my PS4, over 40 for my 3DS and another 40 for my Vita. That’s not to mention all the games I own for my PS3 and steam account. Out of all of those games, I know I’ve only played about four or five dozen. That might sound like a … Continue reading QOTW: How Do You Tackle Your Video Game Backlog?
Over A Month With The Nintendo Switch
I’ve never gotten a system at launch before. It has usually come down to not being able to afford the hefty price of the console or the device not being intriguing enough to win me over.
