Get out of the way Mario-Kart, Sonic takes the stage in the new game Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed! It’s actually a sequel to the Sonic & All-Stars Racing, released in 2010. This fast-paced single- or multiplayer racing game will not only feature all your favourite Sonic characters, but tag-alongs from games like Super Monkey Ball, Crazy Taxi, and more! If you’re worried this is just the same old ‘race the car in loops around the track’, think again – players will have to switch between cars, boats, and even planes to stay on top of the competition!So sit back, relax, and be secure in the knowledge new games are always welcome and just might be the perfect gift for your Valentine!

Split/Second and Vanquish were picked up for five dollars each, and true to form, they sat on my shelf, untouched and unloved. Vanquish was even traded in a couple of months later, due to the fact that I had ran out of shelf space and needed a clear-out before my girlfriend found my three-day old dead body under a pile of green videogame cases.It’s these sales that are the downfall of my gaming productivity (an oxymoron if there ever was one) and so, as soon as I see a promotional email or newsletter enter my inbox, I delete it without even opening it. It’s simply too tempting to see a game on sale and think, “I’ve just been paid, I could pick that up on the way home from work.” Instead, I must fight the urge, almost like a recent quitter fights the urge to ‘just borrow’ a cigarette from a friend.

Thus, the backlog was born. And it sits. And it waits. It is my honest intention to play each and every one of these games through to the end, yet even now I estimate that, with no new purchases, and taking into account review copies and the few games I am allowing myself to purchase, this collection will take me at least into 2014. On the bright side, if I hold strong, it does mean that I will save a fair bit of cash on purchases, but it also means I will probably miss out on a number of AAA games, or at least have the story spoiled for me, as with Mass Effect 3. It sucks, but in reality it’s a first-world problem. Hell, the fact that I can sit here and moan about my gaming backlog screams first-world problem. Yet it is an issue that many gamers today are facing.

Just think, how many games are idly sitting somewhere in your bedroom, basement or study, that you haven’t devoted as much time to as you would have liked? It could be down to time issues, or the fact that something new came along and distracted you from collecting every Riddler trophy or levelling up your character as high as you would have liked. It’s a simple truth that media and marketing are incredibly successful at encouraging us to purchase new things, and that anything you already own is old and decrepit. Yes, you may have purchased it less than two months ago, but “Hey! Look at this shiny new thing and what it does better than your old thing, and think of how much better you would feel if you could hold it in
fifa 14 coins for sale your hands outside of this store!
You can take it home and lovingly pet it; Show it to all your friends and make them think you’re cool as you’re the first in your circle to own it!” We’ve all been there, we’re all going to be there at some point in the future, and whilst it might not exactly be nothing to be ashamed of, it’s how capitalism works, and it’s not going away anytime soon.But sometimes, just occasionally, when you venture into your local videogame store, and walk to the cashier with that brand new shiny game in your hand, take a minute and think. Think of the unplayed games sitting at home, with their big puppy-dog eyes, and their sad faces, and ask yourself, “Do I really need this right now?”
