Backlog-itis

MadWorld is finally out here in Australia, can’t wait to get stuck into it, another ace game to play. Then it struck me, I’ve got a bit of a backlog of Wii games building up that I still need to finish and a few that I need to “start”.

  • Wario Land: The Shake Dimension – I loved the Wario games on handheld. They were platforming brilliance. I can’t really say the same for this one. Sure it looked gorgeous (shame about no widescren support but I digress), however the levels were forgettable and having to buy new levels was just wrong. I am not motivated to go back and play previous levels so I can get enough coins to unlock the final world.
  • No More Heroes – Currently rank three. Once again I can’t be bothered traveling through the boring overworld to do tedious minigame chores to get enough money to make progress.  I really hope they get rid of the overworld in the sequel or at least make it a bit more bearable. I enjoy the ranked battles but I just don’t really enjoy anything inbetween.
  • Super Paper Mario – It’s platforming Mario with RPG elements. So why am I just not motivated to make any progress in this. I think I’m up to the fifth world? It’s been that long since I put it in that I’ve forgot where I’m up to.
  • Resident Evil 4 – Oh wow I sort of haven’t made any progress in this game since I first popped this in my Wii in January. I got up to the first town, got decapitated and stopped. It’s not even my game. I really should get around to beating this so I can return it. I know everyone raves about this being excellent but survival horrors aren’t my forte, I’m a run in guns blazing screw you ammo management sort of guy.
  • Tenchu: Shadow Assassins – Another game I’ve borrowed off a friend. Sort of gave up at the tutorial/first level because I kept failing (at being stealthy ninja like) and being sent back to the checkpoint. Am I just that terrible at these sorts of games? I think I should just return this.

And not to mention other games that I still need to unlock items, characters etc in ala Boom Blox and Mario Kart Wii.

So to my fellow bloggers, what Wii or DS games do you have in you have lying around that still needs to be finished?

    I got bored of Paper Mario and never finished it =( I think I had more fun with previous Paper Mario games, but the Wii one was so “meh” to me.

    Play more of RE4! It gets better as you get farther along. I’m not that great at ammo management either, but enough to be fine in that game I guess XD;;

    In terms of Wii games, I need to finish Okami and play more of Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles. For the DS, I really should finish Chrono Trigger and TWEWY. I also recently got the newest Castlevania game and FF12 on DS.
