Video Game Back Log

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on December 29, 2018 by getbent57

Over the years have had a few small video game back log.  This is when you have one or more games bought but haven’t played yet.  Near the end of the PS3 days had about two games in back long.  Now that a lot of PS4 games are going cheaper have been pick more up.  Right now still playing Red Dead Redemption 2.  Which I am no where close to finishing.  Once done will start into the four game in waiting.  Which are Ratchet & Clank, Final Fantasy XV, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.  The list might grow too before I finish Red Dead 2 since I might be going after some cheap games during the Box Day sales.

Arcade Aid Challenging Quiz

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , on March 24, 2010 by getbent57

AradeAid I seen a link posted on Face Book for a flash based trivia quiz about video games.  It is very interesting.  All the answers are titles of video games.  I gave it a try and only got 7 so far.  I give you an example.  There is a clock on the side of a building that is cut in half.  This one I got right way.  The answer is Timesplitters.  You can give the quiz a try > here.

*side note*  I have 30 out of 56 now.
