Well I mean I could just buy Afterbirth+ on Steam and keep it all, but portability... I dunno. Switch is still a ways off for me, probably a good while after we settle on a house, so maybe I'll keep at it with this, get the dlc, and just rebuy it on Switch as a secondary one for fun. It's just the perfect pick up and play type of game that keeps things fresh. Losing progress between the original and Rebirth was annoying, but not horrible.

Quick Zelda comment. In Zora's Domain. Was getting rid of the flying guardians and a freaking blood moon came up when I had one left. That's some real bulls*** that those respawn too.

Breath of the Wild

Did all the Ruta shrines. Some really good puzzles in a couple of them. The secret stair one and the ball puzzle particularly. Ice one was more time consuming than challenging. Was just a tiny bit disappointed with the boss battle. I was thinking maybe it would be a revamped dungeon but was ok with a harder boss battle. The limitations didn't seem to make things much harder, especially when I had Urbosa's Fury to take down the second phase quickly.

The Binding of Isaac

I now remember how hard Hush is. Was having a pretty good run as Azazel and realized it works on a timer like the boss rush, but with It Lives instead of Mom. Was doing just fine until the 2nd phase where I got my ass handed to me.

Did another Azazel run with the intention of Mega Satan, which I think I have figured out now, but didn't get the key parts this time around (which I had on my Hush run -_-). So I ended up obliterating ??? in less than a second. Could have likely done Hush with that kind of power, granted some of it was gained in The Chest itself. Still, was a pretty ridiculous run with stacks on stacks of things. Like having Guppy's Head, and being able to form an army of flies because I would kill everything in the room before they could attack anything. Became Fun Guy, too, though I'm not sure what that does.

Damn, I wanna get back into this. Maybe starting from scratch isn't a bad idea, so getting the game on Switch. Will think about it.
I agree with all the Big Bear, with the exception of banging dudes for fun. I only do it to assert my dominance. It's never fun. --- DroidKowolluh

I am on a streak of major suckage. Doesn't matter whether I'm playing as Isaac (trying to unlock the D20) or Azazel (I had Dad's Key which I assume would let me unlock that giant door) or even doing a Greed Mode run. Nothing.

The Binding of Isaac

Finally! Had an amazing run as Isaac. I forget what all I had and didn't save the seed. Double shot, the money shot thing, lump of coal, shooting out the back of your head, shielded shot (so freaking OP against the bullet hell-ish fights, would have been perfect for Hush), enlarged shots, cancer, the technology buddy, a spider buddy, the boomerang.... I only had two hearts for most of the run and whatever black and soul hearts I came across, but it didn't matter. I even missed the chance to become Guppy because I thought my odds were too poor when the first Guppy item came late in the run. Ended up easily killing ??? and finally getting the D20 that I've heard so much about. Gonna play around with that soon.

Breath of the Wild

Did another area. I think holding myself to one area per sitting is good at this point. I'm wanting to play other games but still get the Zelda itch and don't want to abandon it yet. Took on the Tabantha region. These challenges we're actually much easier. Not that most of the others were tough, just mainly the annoying flying Guardians. I think my favorite shrine here was the one with the ball going down the slides and conveyor. Simple but involved enough to feel cool. The others were good too and probably provided more challenge, but just something about that one.

This blight fight was a bit better than the last. Still not really sure if they had an intended order (the order on the loading screen doesn't seem right) in mind despite being open world, but this is definitely a step up over Va Ruta (sorry, can't remember which Ganon Blight is which in name). This one my sword broke partway through the fight despite using some Urbosay Fury, so I had to rely on bow and arrow, which was fitting because of Revali. Good fight. Much fun.

Also, even though it didn't seem to give me any actual check off on a quest, I did find Kass in the village and had him sing the song about Link and tell the story of his teacher and Zelda which was some cool additional backstory.

Jeez, I haven't touched my Backloggery account since April. I've got some work to do.

Ok, I'm gonna add everything in (including PS+ stuff if I'm actually planning on playing so maybe I won't forget) and then go through by system and do a tiered backlog.

EDIT: LOL! WTF? Using the dates on Steam to show when I purchased stuff to know what I need to add and it shows Machinarium (gotten from early Humble Bunldes) purchased in 1/1/1970. Looks like several games activated with those codes from ages back do the same. Weird.

Ok, I've gone through every list so far except for Steam, simply because that's going to take awhile and I know what would be near the top (A-B). Those being Morrowind (since I'm already playing) The Witness, Hotline Miami 2, and Bioshock (since I'm partially through it). Tier lists are A-D.

A = One of the next games I'm focusing on for sure.
B = I know I want to play these but not just yet.
C = Either I want to play them eventually but not a priority, or have interest in them (a lot of PS+ games fall here).
D = May still have interest in them, but may also be on the verge of being nulled. Or I may not even know what the hell they are.

If you want an F tier, just look at everything non-PS+ I've nulled on my backlog page. There may still be hope if you convince me, but otherwise I'm going to act like they aren't even there. In fact, with any of these tiers things can easily fluctuate. Factors like what type of game I'm in the mood for could easily drag something out of C-Tier to play if it's not a huge time investment.

The games in each list are mostly in the order I came across them on my page, with a few exceptions where I missed and didn't bother to reorder them.
