Yes, you can change your list at any time. Sometimes people list games they end up simply not liking, others have other stuff come up in their life and have to pick shorter games, and others have started up a game not on their list that they end up really liking so they swap it onto their list since they know they'll go through it.

As noted above, the only thing I suggest people don't do is replace their incomplete games with already completed games at the end just to get more completed games in their row. The idea really is to set goals for backlog games and complete them. But some wiggle room is alright.
Cool, I just was leaning more towards wanting to do Alpha Protocol as opposed to Betrayer it wasn't peaking my interest

I've changed Tyranny and Operation Abyss to Deponia: The Complete Journey and Oninaki.
I try and try, but I really have a hard time getting into (most) CRPGs and my DRPG intake doesn't seem to be that big either :/

On the other hand Deponia has been sitting in my library for a while so I figured might as well (and since it's basically 3 games in one it's not going to make my picks shorter :p) and while I'm having decent fun with Oninaki and it's a new pick, I think some extra motivation will be good.

I've been playing Vagrant Story here and there.

It's as good as I remember, but I also forgot how tedious the weapon combining system is.
Dont forget to use the dummies to improve a weapons affinity. You should have 1 weapon class for each kind of enemy.

After rushing through five of my ten Blitz games in April I've got stagnant and haven't completed any in May while working through other stuff (mainly as I played through all the Darksiders games). I did put a tiny bit of time into Rayman Origins and hope to have Origins and Legends completed by the end of Monday and probably squeeze at least one more in before the month is over. Two would be ideal.

Yakuza 4 and The Witcher 3 DLC are both going to hang over my head and consume a bit of time in June. Oof. We'll see how that goes!

I've finished my second game of this blitz with The Complex.

It seems like the pandemic has actually slowed my progress with finishing single player games. Even with possible gains in free time since everyone else is staying at home too I've got people looking to play video games, board games, or RPGs nearly every night off the week.

I haven't played any of the games on my original list for this blitz except for Space Pirate Trainer (and I wasn't feeling it), but I did blast my way through Persona 5 Royal and Final Fantasy VII Remake and now I'm feeling like I should play something different than what I had planned, so I'm switching things out. Got myself a new list:
  1. Abode
  2. Fatal Twelve
  3. Hypnospace Outlaw
  4. Resident Evil 3
  5. Horace
I think I will start with Horace first.

Edit: Tried all of those games except Abode and, well, they're not for me. I'm so particular that if a game does one or two little things that bug me, I'm out. Since I'm not in it for a prize this time I'm going to put Persona 5 Royal and FF7R on my list even though they weren't backlog (brand new games) as I did play those over the last six weeks and they've taken up most of my gaming time. Need to decide on the next two now.

Finished Vagrant Story, that's 3 our of 5 games done.
:sf_quackd:

WIll probably play Chimera Squad and Illusion of Gaia at the same time instead of picking just one next.

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner M∀RS is completed. That puts me at 3 of 5 complete here and 7 of 10 overall for the two Blitz I'm in. For here I have Yazkua 4 and Ys: Oath in Felghana remaining. I also have The Witcher 3 DLC for the other Blitz, and it's what I picked separately as my June game. I expect that'll be fairly long but the other two are manageable without an issue.

Illusion of Gaia is done! The black mark in my gaming history has been erased! Rejoice! That's 4/5. :)
Now onto Terranigma?

Just finished Ys: Oath in Felghana so that puts me at 4 of 5 complete here. Only Yakuza 4 remains. I also have Witcher III DLC for another Blitz (and it's my pre-selected June game). Really looking forward to Yakuza 4 but the Witcher III DLC might take me a bit to get back into the groove since it's been ~7 months since I played the main game.

So I started Batman: The Enemy Within

You are working very closely with the police in that one it seems

Maybe not the best thing to play right now with things being as they are in the USA
