Yeah, I did a lot for a while, but the problem was that I then just completely stopped. I felt kinda bad that I didn't start helping again while you were on vacation. I'll try to do better this year too.

It'll let you know how long it'll take to beat a game. I found it useful for polishing off a few games in my backlog. Sometimes it's nice to beat a short game after putting 30 hours into something like Mordor.
Thanks. My problem is that most of the games in my backlog are JRPGs and other RPGs, so it's mostly really long games.

But I do have a ton of games on Steam that I've gotten from various sales and Humble Bundles, and I should probably work on that backlog too, so that should help with finding some shorter games to play between the longer ones.

Quite an enjoyable rogue-like game (where death just means you can go back with better items).

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate - beaten.

This might just be my favorite Assassin's Creed game. I enjoyed playing it as much as any of the others, and I cared a hell of a lot more about the protagonists and story than I have since AC II. Evie, Jacob and Mr Green are just delightful, and the resolution of the plot is extremely satisfying.

I'm completely with you there, Ravenlock. The only complaint I have about the franchise taking a year off is that my dream of a Jake & Evie sequel is on hold.

Right? I'm actually considering getting the Jack the Ripper DLC just because it's an older Evie you get to play as the protagonist.

I've got the season pass and finally downloaded the DLC last night. I'll probably play it tonight and will report back.

Sweet! I'll work on Queen Victoria missions and stuff in the World War 1 rift in the meantime.

Heh. I did all of those before finishing the game. Just need to find my missing 3 helix glitches.

I was obsessive about finishing all the boroughs LONG before I finished the story missions, and also the Dickens / Darwin / Marx side stuff, but I largely ignored the collectibles and WWI stuff, so I've got lots of cleanup to do.

There's a reason I had 75 hours in that game. I didn't do a lot of cart racing but that was about it.

Just finished Fallout 4's main quest! Got 2 of the endings. So yeah, I loved it of course. It had some issues that annoyed me, but awesome non-the-less.

Just curious, how are people getting multiple endings? Just with a save near the end of the game or something?

Well two of them (the Railroad and Institute) are almost intertwined due to the story. So yeah, if you reload a save at the right you can go back and get a second ending easily. Hell, I'm gonna go reload from before the BoS were hostile and get a third.
