PostSubject: Switch Backlog Thread of Guilt   Fri 22 Sep 2017 - 21:09

Because not all of us have, or want, a Backloggery account.  The Switch library is building up swiftly, so here are the games I have that I want to finish but haven't, in order of want-to-get-back-to-ness:
  • Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, which I'm currently theoretically playing but I can't ignore the fact that I'm more into MHS;
  • Overcooked, especially the DLC where you can unlock a panda chef;
  • Spla2n's one-player;
  • Shovel Knight.  Not the rest of the DLC for now, the main adventure would be a start;
  • Snipperclips, a charming game but superseded in the two-player stakes by Overwatchcooked, among other things.

And yet I've just bought Thimbleweed Park and SWD2, and we all know what comes out next month... Aww!

Fancy posting your Switch backlog, if you have such a thing?  And then coming back to this thread as it grows and shrinks?  Go on, you know you want to...

SteamWorld Dig 2.

Backlog ends. Cool

This is obviously because I've not had Zelda to swallow whole days of Switch playtime.

All I have is Lego City Undercover, Fast RMX & Gonner, the latter is understandable considering it's a rouge-like and is made for playing here & there.

Good job this is just for Switch

    Physical Games Collection
  • The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, Got from NSG and not really my thing
  • Has-Been Heroes, Better games have come out but simliar to Jas with GoNNER its Rogue-like nature make it for playing here and there
  • LEGO Worlds, Just bought because it was only Ł22
  • Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, The game I want to say I'm playing on Switch primarily at the moment but I'm only on World 2
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I've included it here as I've done Zero of the single player as I did all that on Wii U, so is literary just for Multiplayer
  • Monster Hunter Double Cross - Nintendo Switch Version, Was waiting for Drunka so I could continue on but I've now got distracted by M+R
  • Seiken Densetsu Collection, It has 3 games on it and one I've never played plus even though the Mana series is a bit of babies first JRPG it is still hard in Japanese
  • Skylanders Imaginators, Got because of NSG and was planning to do a let's play sereies but Elagato broke and now since launch the Switch library is much better and I'm yet to buy Crash or Cortex figures.  
  • Splatoon 2, This is much like MK8D but I do want to play the Single Player

    Digital Games Collection  
  • Fast RMX, I've done like one or two cups, it has been mainly a Multiplayer game
  • Graceful Explosion Machine, Bought in the sale and could be a good one for a quick pick up and play
  • I Am Setsuna, This is the one I want to play the most out of all my digital games, its just a certain other system has other RPGs I need to be playing instead
  • Ironcast, This is sort of Rogue-like x Match 3 and I play a lot in handheld mode but I always see Game Over before the boss which may only be the first of many but the game a a few characters to unlock along with gear that I feel it is all part of the game.
  • Kamiko, I had some funds and it's cheap along with positive things said about it but yet to give a good go
  • Mr. Shifty, Got via NSG and I have done a bit of a review of it and nearly finished but it's rather repetitive and the novelty wears off after a while.
  • NBA Playgrounds, Bought to support the studio and not for the free Shaq-Fu
  • Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, Got at launch like loads did but I got stuck into Zelda then Persona 5 on PS4 etc and just not gone back since  
  • SteamWorld Dig 2, Just got via NSG and I'm loving it
  • Vaccine, A Res Evil throwback and well its not good.


Yeah so a lot of games but I do think it shows how the great Switch library is but mine will be added to next month with 3 games at retail at least (I've got a import coming as well at the moment). I said elsewhere and I'll say again this is the first time since the Cube that I could be Nintendo only.

If you are wondering what I've actually beaten it's Zelda, ARMS, Puyo Puyo Tetris, Sonic Mania, Snake Pass and PAN-PAN.

Oh I forgot about GEM but given the hi-score nature of the game I get far too hooked on trying to perfect a level that I never move on to the others. Embarrassed

Oh fuck. This is not a thread I wanted to see - for my own sake! No

From oldest to newest...

Snipperclips - Still got a few levels to go. My excuse is that I'd rather play this with someone else than solo.

Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove - More specifically, Spectre Knight and Plague Knight's respective campaigns.

Splatoon 2 - I've still got the single player to rattle off.

Monster Hunter XX: Switch Edition - Getting through this bit by bit, mind.

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle - Working my way steadily through this.

The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ - Again, this is one I'm playing every now and then, what with it being a roguelike and all.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 - ...I couldn't resist. It came out yesterday, and I've got so many other games to beat, but I couldn't resist.

Technically, Thumper and FAST RMX could feature here, but I've given up on ever beating them - the former due to its difficulty, the latter due to being made obsolete by MK8D.

Holy Christ Mas. No Still, nice of you to make that post early on and make the rest of us feel better.

I'd forgotten Snipperclips! Duh! Will add it to my original post, although that's probably near falling off as one I can accept I'll never finish.

I'd like to at least get through the base game content - I fully concede that I'll never get around to playing the DLC.

Fast Racing Neo - I'm probably not going to spend much time on this again either. As slick, tight and technically accomplished as it undoubtedly is, it's all a little bit flat. It's not that interesting a game.

Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove - I quite like all of this, and I'll crack on with it someday.

Snake Pass - I'm not far off finishing this, but it can be a bit of slog to get through some of those levels. I think I said elsewhere that it could have done with more playtesting, as it's not a very even game. Quite good when it all comes together though.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - I just stopped playing this one day, and I don't know why. I think I beat the fourth Divine Beast and then put it down for a couple of days in June, only to then not go back to it. What a superb game though. Even without finishing it, I've stuck over sixty hours into it, which is more than I played any Wii U game.

Namco Museum - I finished Splatterhouse and Rolling Thunder 2, but that's still nine games that are left undone. Will I go back and finish Dig Dug, Pac Man, Sky Kid and the rest? Probably not.

Splatoon 2 - Good for the odd online Turf War, but the single player didn't really capture my imagination. Can't see me going back to it.

Mario & Rabbids Kingdom Battle - Still on the first world of levels, as I've not found the time to play much of it. I'm actually thinking of trading it in - it's all right, but not a game I see myself coming close to finishing.

ARMS - The same as Splatoon 2 in the sense that I'm not really arsed about finishing it. Cracking game though - what a great surprise.

Also this... for all that people talked about how much the Splat single-player is like SMG, SMG felt much more imaginative. Possibly due to the aesthetic, possibly due to Mario being massively intuitive to control and the Inkling... not, not for me. (I'm aware that I've opened up a snack-size can of wormlets there, so just assume I've filled it in with concrete already.)

*explodes concrete open with dynamite*

The SMG comparisons were for the first Splatoon which I think has a far far better single player mode than the sequel, a lot of the bosses fall flat for me in the sequel & I feel in some levels there's less focus on getting around & more on shooting the enemies while solving the occasional puzzle. No doubt there is some clever stuff in there but I wouldn't compare Spla2n to SMG at all.

Re. the wormlets, I was talking about saying SMG's controls were intuitive. I just know that's going to get somebody's attention. Wink

The first boss in Spla2n is, up until now, my favourite bit of the game.  Maybe because I don't have the first one to compare it with, but still.  I appreciated clambering over it, and it did feel quite Galaxy-like.  Agreed with what you say about the level design though.

For my money, Spla2n's singleplayer was let down by needing every level to be doable with every weapon. It forced the level design to be a little less inventive and a little more shooting-focused, as Jas mentioned.

Back on the matter at hand, my Switch backlog:

Splatoon 2 I've finished the singleplayer, but the multiplayer will no doubt keep me going for a long time to come. Plus, I'd quite like to unlock some of the hero weapons and stuff like that.
Neurovoider I just recently played this for review, but it's an arcadey roguelike thing so there's plenty more I could get up to if I were inclined.
Mario + Rabbids To my shame, I've not played much time to play this and am still at the first miniboss.
Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver. This is the reason little else has gotten played, and even this has only managed a paltry 37 hours in the month since release. I have very little free time with the ludicrous hours I've been working, then even when I get home I'm often too knackered to game. Plus I spent a week playing Halo with my brother.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe I've almost hit the 100 hour mark. I'm sure the multiplayer will be a mainstay for a long time to come, but there are still those 200cc staff ghosts taunting me with the fact I don't technically have full completion yet . . .
ARMS I've beaten the Grand Prix at every difficulty with Min Min but I'd also quite like to do it with, if not everyone, Twintelle, Ribbon Girl and Lola Popp. I also wish I had more time to play mutiplayer and git properly gud.
Zelda Breath of the Wild I don't even have every shrine yet, let alone all the koroks and the DLC dungeon and that. I want to have at least done all the shrines before the second DLC.
Thumper I'd like to play more of this, I'm a just before the point where I think most of you quit, but this is one that needs me properly in the zone and that doesn't happen all that much just now Sad
Shovel Knight I beat this again, but I've still not touched Plague or Spectre . . .

I do have Fast RMX, Kamiko and Semispheres completed to my satisfaction, though.

Now, if we were talking uncompleted 3DS games . . .

Well, it's still a great game that anyone on here should play through until the end, plus you're not going to be beating your backlog with talk like that. Razz

I've added FIFA 18 which doesn't really have a end, but I'm thinking I will play as Exeter and go from League 2 to the Champions League then be done.

Got Inversus for NSG which I've got no idea what it is about and I plan to get Golf Story.

I'm probably doing ok when it comes to my Switch Backlog but that's mainly because I've for once in my life avoided buying games I know I don't have time to play. Anyway:

Mario + Rabbids - On to the last world of this but moving through it slowly having a few games on my plate, probably would have finished it much sooner had the missus not hogged it in the early weeks.

Has Been Heroes - Bought this on a whim because it was a retail release I thought might be a bit rare and I had some money to spare but after only one quick play I've not revisited and probably won't for a while.

NBA Playgrounds - This is another I might not play for a bit because I'm really not very good at it and every time I try to get my head around it I fail miserably.

Snipperclips - Made the mistake of trying to play through this with my niece, she's definitely at the right age to play it competently but finds it more fun just to irritate me on it. Hissy fit

Only 4 games which doesn't seem too bad but now that I think about it, that's a decent percentage of my Switch games so maybe I need to work on it a little bit.

Steamworld Dig 2 is formally added to the backlog. And Thimbleweed Park is formally added to the frontlog.
