Monthly Backlog Club

To not clutter the suggestions thread: can we repeat someone else’s nomination(s) if we fancy the same titles, or would you prefer if we stuck to as many unique titles as possible?

Just keep the nominations to unique games. When we vote, you can just vote for someone else’s game if that’s what you want to play. If you already see a game you’re going to vote for, you don’t have to nominate anything really.

I’ve created a couple of badges for the MBLC. The first one is a “nominator” badge that you get for posting in any of the nomination threads. It should backfill everyone that’s already posted in our first nomination thread.

The second is a “voter” badge. If you liked a post in the Poll thread, you should get the badge later tonight.

Do you think I should make one for each month?

I think I’ll make one for actually participating in the club too.

Do you guys have any other thoughts or ideas for cool badges?

I kind of like the idea of a badge for each game. Obviously you’d be working on a bit of an honor system that way though. I suppose for games with achievements, you could make the badge for a certain achievement. Of course that brings up whether the badge will be awarded to people who played it before it was picked, or after it’s no longer the monthly game.

You should create a '‘Fucking Badass’ badge for yourself my good sir!

Anyone playing the other two games for this month yet? If you are, just create a thread that starts with [MBLC Chat] and go to town.

I want to hear about Brothers and The Longest Journey!

I played through one of the ones that wasn’t picked this month. :laughing:

I’ll be playing both Transistor (starting tomorrow, so I guess I’ll be done tomorrow as well, heh) and Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons after Transistor’s done. The latter is exceedingly short from what I’ve heard so it would be neat if other folks who voted for it would dive in, as well.

I’ll be hopping into Brothers this weekend as well. They’re both pretty short games really, so I’m hoping I can finish them both soon.

Are you guys interested in continuing this for February? I think there’s been a pretty decent turnout for the first month honestly.

Is there anything you’d change?

Definitely! I feel pretty shitty having not contributed given that two of my nominations were picked this month (blame it on 90 hours of Persona Q :sweat: ). I’ve definitely enjoyed reading everyone’s immediate impressions.

I’d like to jump in this month if I have any of the highlighted games in my queue. I’ll certainly keep an eye out for the selected title each month.

Definitely kept playing because of this.
There wasn’t a lot of discussion around the game (I played Transistor), but it was the first time and we weren’t playing with a lot of people. Let’s keep this a thing! :smile:

The nomination thread is up for February. Same rules as last time.

Don’t feel bad at all! I’d like to hear about Persona when you’re done because I’m kind of having trouble getting into a little bit.

Yep, also interested in continuing. :3
