Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Feb 022024

The start of this year left me with a dilemma.

With so many anticipated games coming out in such a short period of time, what in the world was I going to do about our annual celebration of romance games?

So I decided to make an adjustment to the usual structure. Instead of running all month long, this year’s Celebrating All Things Romantic will end on Valentine’s Day, February 14. I had already considered making that change to coincide with the holiday, so this felt like a great year to try it out.

Unless something crazy happens like, say, Ace Attorney 7 being announced (please), each post in this shorter time frame will follow the Celebrating All Things Romantic theme.

And of course, we have a contest!

If you choose the review option, your chosen game must be something I either own or is easily obtainable, which you can discuss with me beforehand. It must be a single game, not a collection (although the chosen game can be part of a collection). I will start playing it by March.

So let’s enjoy some romance games over the next two weeks as this year’s Celebrating All Things Romantic begins!

  1. Woohoo, time for another one! I like the idea of this only being for 2 weeks given how intense a year this will be for new gaming releases (and gives you an extra two weeks to finish backlog games, like Xenoblade Chronicles 3….. )

  2. Just saying, if I do happen to lose this contest, Fate/Stay Night is a fantasy romance VN and could count for next year’s February Romantic month. 😉

  3. When I try to think of games that are romantic I can only ever think of a handful, but somehow you know of enough to do this competition again! Maybe I’m just out of the loop.

  4. Ace Attorney 7 will be a dating sim otome.

    But really I like these contests let’s do it! Good luck everyone.
