Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international independent medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, natural disasters, or exclusion from health care in nearly 70 countries.
Send me a PM on the Backloggery and I’ll add it to the list. If no one picks it, you don’t have to do anything. If a winner does pick your item, I’ll have them contact you to found out how to get their prize. It’s easy!
Due to North Carolina tax law, we’ve had to end our Amazon Affiliate program for the Backloggery. We will be able to bring it back if congress passes the Marketplace Fairness Act, but until then it’s not an option. In the meantime, we’re working on a new store for Backloggery shirts and other merch. Stay tuned for that.
Also, as Twitter folk might already know, I’ve been working on a site redesign to properly support touch-screen devices and widescreen monitors. It’s a ways off, but it’ll be the next major update.
A Long Overdue System List Update
Added the following systems:

Backloggery Fundraiser Marathon - Success!
This past weekend, we held the annual Backloggery Fundraiser Marathon. This year that involved 21 hours of 3-player Secret of Mana.
Despite the horrible timing (i.e. EVO and a Steam sale) we were far more successful than I had hoped. This community is amazing and continues to surprise me year after year. As you can see in the image above, we raised $4,485, almost double our goal amount.
The money is going to cover server costs, not sexy but it keeps the lights on. If you missed the stream, you can always check out the archive here.
Thanks again to everyone who donated money and those who donated gifts for the prize pool. If you won a prize or a prize you donated was chosen by a winner, please get in contact with the other person to arrange delivery. You can see the prize pool with all the winners here.
There’s also a few winners that were drawn that haven’t claimed a prize yet. If you’re on this list, please contact me ASAP to claim a prize. It’s first come, first served, so don’t delay!
Gaming Network ID Tweaks
- Linked Steam IDs to your Steam profile page
Will give an error page if your Steam profile is set to private.
- Linked Nintendo Network IDs to your Miiverse profile page
Must be logged in to the Nintendo Network to view profiles, because you wouldn’t want people that dont own a Wii U to see any nifty features, right Nintendo?
- Removed PSN Badge images
They were often broken and the manual update PSN required confused a lot of people. this brings it more in line with the other network IDs
