Breaking my Back(log)

I’ve been working nights lately… and preparing for a move to Texas… and I’ve managed to knock more games, movies, and TV off my “backlog” in the last month, at a faster pace, then I have been knocking games off in years. This includes: Getting the platinum trophy for Horizon: Zero Dawn, hit 25% trophy completion in Mass Effect: Andromeda, finished some random trophy hunts I’ve been meaning to in a plethora of games, watched eight movies I've been interested in seeing, and even finished watching Preacher, and Silicon Valley (two shows I had let slip for quite a while).

Summoner's Journal: Balancing League and...play

Finding the time to play video games has become harder and harder with each passing year (growing older is the worst, but I still refuse to grow up). Like a high school’s art program, video games are the hobby which receives the quickest cuts when I find myself strapped for free time. It’s often easier to unwind by watching an episode of 30 minute TV show, than get invested into a game 30 minutes at a time.
