Hey there fellow TA'ers! wave

As many of you will have seen, I've created 'Complete Game' goals to put a bit of pressure on myself to actually get most of my backlog cleared this year. I would like to try and do them in order of my lists but obviously I'm not too fussed about finishing some games earlier than planned. I just don't want to start any new RETAIL titles until I've at least nailed my completion percentage goal as starting a fresh would set me back more than I'd like. Not too fussed about starting XBLA/Win 8 titles.

Here's the to do list:

XBOX ONE



2016 Finished games


2015 Finished games


XBOX 360



2016 Finished games


2015 Finished games


XBLA



2015 Finished games

WINDOWS



2016 Finished games


2015 Finished games


WINDOWS PHONE



2016 Finished games

2015 Finished games

ANDROID



If anyone wants to co-op/boost/play anything whenever then let me know on here or XBL.

PermalinkShaolin Sunday #29 - You Was Born to be a Pawn but I'm a Bishop!
It's back to the start of the rotation again with what will be the third and final wave of just a few of my favourite Wu-Tang songs. I'm going to understandably dedicate the 36th instalment to the Wu as a whole. The remaining Shaolin Sunday's will go like this:

29: Wu-Tang
30: RZA
31: Method Man
32: Ghostface Killah
33: Inspectah Deck
34: Raekwon
35: Masta Killa
36: Wu-Tang

No offense to GZA, ODB, U-God, and Cappadonna, but when it comes down to choosing a select few, that's how the list would look.

For this week's Wu entry, I'm going with Duck Seazon from the "Wu-Tang Forever" album which includes verses from just Raekwon, RZA and Method Man. This song also happens to include one of my favourite verses from RZA as he could arguably have had the best verse on the whole album! I've listened to RZA's solo albums and I've always loved the way he spits. He's quick, aggressive, technical, and just insane with some of the stuff he comes out with. Sometimes though, I struggle to really pay attention to his lyrics over how distracting certain instruments or voices can be. Be A Man is a good example although listening to it now via my laptop doesn't sound too bad. Maybe it's just me with normally listening to music through one ear phone.

In Duck Seazon, the beat is calm, slow, dark, and just straight raw and the delivery of bars can be heard crystal clear. Raekwon spits some pretty sweet verses too and I'd also rank his as some of my personal favourites from The Chef. For Meth, I prefer when he's spitting a bit more quicker and wittier but his lyrics are still not to be messed with - "we at odds till we even motherf****r". Simple lines like that can go straight over your head so easily! Again though, The Abbot steals the show and you'll hear why in the video below:

PermalinkShaolin Sunday #28 - The Water's Filthy
Regular listeners of Raekwon will have heard him regularly mention Ice Water. Not only is The Chef the founder of his own label ICEH20 Records, a long time ago, he also had his own group, Ice Water. Consisting originally of Cigar, Polite, Stumik and P.C., who I'd never heard of and haven't heard of since to be honest, the team of four put together an album 10 years ago - "Polluted Water".

I bought this album at the time as Raekwon was presenting the squad and there were some pretty good looking features to thanks to the likes of Busta Rhymes, Method Man, Pimp C, Rick Ross, Three 6 Mafia, Remy Ma, and plenty of Raekwon too. Although no where near as creative as that of a Wu-Tang album, it was still a pretty decent listen and the album is actually still a part of my rotation in my car (out of 5 crammed CD wallets).

Lyrically, the team could deliver but they just didn't have a distinctive sound though or unique approach like that of Raekwon. The song I've picked from their only album features Raekwon and Pimp C. There's strong performances all round but I've got to give props to Pimp C with his guest slot here. Raekwon comes with his boss style, calm, mafia approach and then the rest of the squad delivers strong showings, but Pimp C just stole the show by doing something that not many rappers have the guts to do these days or back then really. That's calling out NAMES! laugh I love the beat too, right from the start, the bass line is very catchy.
