Backloggery Theme Events

Post  Adminassassin on Sun Apr 18, 2010 3:12 am

Lots of people do "marathons," but I prefer to do monthly themes, although I haven't done it recently in my blind attempt to just finish as many games as possible.

Some that I plan to do are
May: RPGFest (pretty self-explanatory: for me it'll be FFXIII and Pokemon Colloseum, among others)
June: JuN64e (lame names rule! for me it'll be Banjo Tooie, DK64, among others)
July: Lucky7 (attempt to beat 7 games, especially ones I'd previously given up on)
etc etc you get the point

Anyone interested in doing this with me? Feel free to make suggestions or revisions and I'll make a full calender here if people are interested.
My backloggery can be found here.

I'm already past the point of 'you're doing too much marathon-type stuff', but... RPGs in May, that's something I can support. :3

Well, you could always stop doing them if they're no longer fun... Razz

May - I have a bunch of RPGs so I'll be joining!
June - I'll try to join this one as well. Maybe I'll finally get some N64 VC games...
July - This one is impossible for me. I can try, but I doubt I'll be able to beat 7 games xD

Other Ideas:
RetroFest - NES, SNES, ect. games
Strategy Theme - anything from SRPG-to-RTS.
Try a Different Genre Month - I've wanted to do this for awhile. I've even got a few games I bought from genres that I haven't really given a chance before.

I'm already doing my RPG theme ! D:

I'll probably never touch a Final Fant-

Well I wont say that, but once they're beaten, I won't touch them for a while.

lol, trudat. :3

Actually, I was thinking of my own today. I hate doing series-marathons because you're stuck in one genre usually and that can get you stuck in a rut. So I decided to do...

a FEMME FATALATHON.

Yes, that's a horrible name, but it's better than my first: Girls Gone Wild. Razz

I don't know when or where (I'd like to have more people in on it), but you'd just play games either with female leads or with a lot of girls that you could form a party out of: like playing Metroid or doing a female-only one of a Fire Emblem game.

Just a thought of mine. :3

Well, that works with me. We've already joked about how FFXIII is 2/3 girls, so I can participate.

I could do/finish Etrian Odyssey for that! My whole team is made of women~ (I was just being spiteful that guys always out-number girls in RPGs, so I made a girl-only guild and team). Razz The Guild is called Furies as well xD

Just so anyone around here knows, I'm going to do my Femme Fatalathon starting June 1st. I'm (hopefully) going to have a BL theme and everything for it.

I have started Round 1 of the :B:Fest as I randomly just started calling it. I have self-banned myself from going on eBay or otherwise buying any games until I beat at least 5 games. After this, I will be allowed to get minimal new stuff, then will go through another round requiring another 5-10 more games to be beaten. Check my progress on my BL.

Good Luck Admin. Very Happy

Next game I plan on beating is Condemned 2, which I'm about 2/3 through. After that and some of my NP, I'm going to do a BL marathon deemed "Mission...:C: (Complete)!" as in going back and beating/completing games. I'm starting that July 1st if anyone else wants to join.

I need ideas on a new theme that actually fits the games I'm playing Dx

I love my theme and all, but I'm not really into Metroid right now :/

Mission :C: has concluded, which left me with 3 of the original 7 planned. Oh well, still better off than I was.

RPGFest starts August 1st and runs through the end of September!

Ok sounds good. I still have to figure out which games I'll be doing for the RPGFest. Games like FFIV and Chrono Trigger for sure. Not sure about Kingdom Hearts II because it took me around 50 hours to beat it the first time.

Ok change of plan. I won't be playing FFIV but I did add Chrono Trigger to my Now Playing List. Also Borderlands is taking longer than I expected and Kingdom Hearts II's Proud Mode is kicking my ass at the moment but I'm dedicated to beating all these games.

Those 3 should be enough to last me till the end of September. If I somehow pull off a miracle and finish early, I'll add 358/2 Days to the list.

Yeah, I'm not doing well with my own marathon either. Already sold 2 of the games because I couldn't really stand playing them and am on th everge of quiting BoF. (Just getting so old to me, really.) Committed to beating FFIX still, as long as it doesn't do too much more "haha youre 2 hours underleveled for ze boss!" and might be adding Super Robot Taisen Endless Frontier to the list. But I'm also playing non-RPG games more. I kind of wonder if this will have turned out to be a good idea, lol. (The marathon)

Got A LOT of progress done on Chrono Trigger. For some reason, I'm enjoying this game more than when I played it for the first time. I'm already 6 hours into the game. That's dedication right there. Razz

It's not a bad idea. Marathons that involve RPGs just take a while. It also requires commitment and A LOT of patience.

*Cringes when he remembers his pokemon marathon* No
