Yesterday I did something difficult - very difficult actually - and I'm rather proud of myself.  I didn't buy A Boy And His Blob?  Impressed? You should be.

I was running some lunchtime errands and had to hit Subway for lunch and then Starbucks for the wife.  And wouldn't you know, there's a Gamestop in between the two stores.  So I popped my head it, and A Boy and His Blob was staring right at me.  Talk about temptation.  The game looks really good. . . AND it's only $40!!  What a deal.  And that's when the problem started.

I'm in a very rare situation right now where I actually have a backlog.  Not a huge one, but I was given a few older games by a friend last week, Super Paper Mario and RE: UC.  Couple that with the cheap copy of de Blob I picked up a while ago, and of course my replaying of Harvest Moon: MM and I'm not exactly in a position where I need a new game.  Plus I've got Lost Winds and the new Harvest Moon both on the horizon in coming weeks.

Needless to say I was in a tough position. Somehow though common sense managed to override my gamer's instinct and I put the game back on the shelf.  I'm quite proud.  Of course if I manage to cruise through these games in a matter of a few days. . . well we'll just see what happens then.

You need my determination/apathy. You need never worry about buying a game again.

Just play animal crossing.

You call that a backlog?  Now this is a backlog!

Whatever. That's barely a backlog at all. Nyaa

I didn't say I had a bad backlog. I'm just not contributing to making it worse.  And for the record there's a difference between a backlog and "games I've just abandoned that I'm never going back to."  If you've stopped playing a game and more than 6 months has passed that's officially abadonment and charges should be filed.

For the record, I wasn't responding to you. It's all Yodariquo's fault. Nyaa

If you can resist this, you have no soul.
