Hey everyone! Welcome to the Graveyard Shift, the nightly hang-out hosted by Kotaku's reader-run blog, TAY.

When you're done here, you could always go check out the articles over at TAY or TAYClassic! Or, if this is your first time at TAY, please check out this TUTorial!
As I just finished up my fall semester last Friday, I started looking at all of the things I picked up during the last couple of months and never managed to finish. There were a few figures I picked up from Games Workshop that I never painted, and a book I never finished reading, but above all, there were so many games that I never finished playing.
Now that I have some time off, I've been going through a lot of the things I picked up but never finished (except painting those figures, Games Workshop's price gouging takes all the fun out of things). I'm starting to watch Gatchaman: Crowds again, since I only caught the first few episodes of that. More importantly, I'm working on Tales of Xilia again. To be honest, I'm not really sure why I stopped indulging myself in either, but it quickly became obvious that I missed them.
I'm not really stopping there, either. Sometime during my vacation next week, I'm hoping that I get a chance to get further in Persona 4. Unlike the last time I had to stop in that game, I remember exactly where I was when I stopped and what in the plot led up to where I was. This time, I won't need to restart the game from the beginning to feel like I'm getting the full experience. Besides, if I get to the end of it and feel hazy about the details, there's always that anime they put out that I could watch and get the same experience.
So, now that the year is finally winding down, how many of you (besides Ueziel) are reflecting on your backlogs? Are there any games or shows that you're trying to get yourself back into?
Did the topic not interest you? Are you the epitome of stick-to-it-ive-ness? Then feel free to talk about whatever you desire. The Wednesday Graveyard Shift is open for discussion!
P.S. - Yes, I totally did make a jab at Halo 2's cliffhanger ending. That ending still annoys me.
