To begin my alphabetical completion, I've got to deal with Afro Samurai. A hack and slash adventure based off of an anime of the same name. If it follows the story arc closely, then I'm about a third of the way done the game. This is going to be a bit of a grind. The combos are a little clunky or really under powered and I can't quite get the hang of the focus mode thing. Frustration caused an abrupt ending to the play time last night when I was stuck between two rocks and infinitely falling. I wish that this was the only glitch I faced. It almost locked up twice when I leveled and sometimes it visually chokes hen trying to do a cutscene.

The upsides include a fairly cool anime/comic style split panel to show enemies or objectives and when you do get the combos to co-operate, it feels satisfying. If you are a fan of the anime series, and don't get bored easily with the same enemies and attacks, this game is definitely for you. I don't think I'll be going for 100% completion and it's not much in the way of replay value to me.

2.5/5

Two hundred and forty six. This is the number of games currently sitting on my shelves. I've finished most of them and kept them all in pretty good condition. They range from nintendo to ps3 and 360, and most of them have been fully conquered and leisurely revisited, but some were distracted from, some slipped through the cracks and were put on hold. Well, challenge accepted! they shall be neglected no more! I shall revisit everything, my complete library and run the incompletes through alphabetical order and systematically destroy them all. Two hundred and forty seven. I forgot to include my collector's edition of Gears 3. It's under my tv rather than on a shelf. All this isn't including my digital copies of steam games, computer games, and other bits lying around. I'll get a grand total sometime here, but this is the main one for now.

I'd like to give much thanks to those who've watched the new video and who gave feedback, it's been very helpful and I've got something going here.

The first game for completion is Afro Samurai for the 360.

I'll hopefully submit a game time and number of days to complete.
