I recently (re)discovered Backloggery and sorted most of my library into their database. It’s basically a gaming tracker similar to Goodreads, where you add games to your library and track how far your into each game. With such a large collection to keep track of, I sometimes find myself more demotivated to play games. It’s like going from 3 channels on the TV to over 500. From “This is the only thing on…looks like I have no choice to enjoy it!” to “Ughh 500 channels and there’s nothing on…”. I guess there’s some sort of science/psychology behind this phenomena, something to look up later.
|Of course, when you have so much quality educational programming choices to chose from on, especially on The Learning Channel…why would you need any more channels?|
What I especially enjoy is finding people with similar game interests on that site. I’m into some weird games, so when I encounter someone talking about Call of Duty or Madden, it’s hard to relate “Oh yeah, I can’t wait to play some Persona 4 Golden and 英雄伝説 閃の軌跡 later…you didn’t catch that? It’s the new Legend of Heroes title…you never heard of Legend of Heroes either? Yeah…well so far only one game of the 7 game series has been published in the US…but you should definitely import it anyway!” Yeah…essentially my gaming conversations come out pretty dry…
|Yeah…shoot that badguy with that gun!|
So yeah, slow week so far. I got a few new figures from December that I’ll need to post online sometime later. Other than that…just gotta keep gaming :).
