  1. Update for cabin 9 when you get around to the others, please. Figure I'll work on the Vita games while we're dealing with a heat wave, then tackle Final Fantasy. I'd like to throw in a Fallout game, but that seems too ambitious with the rest of it. Make Friends - The Order: 1886 - 2% Hang out at the Lake - Assassin's Creed 3 - 91% Certainly spent long enough trying to 100% the different naval levels. May not be possible between the minigame trophy and a challenge that didn't unlock. Play a Sport - Go Hiking - Severed - 0% Shoot Something - Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 - Make Something - Portal Knights - 22% Minecraftish with better combat, basically. May wind up stuck on 300 events. Learn Something - Assassin's Creed Origins - Put on a Show - Tell a Ghost Story - Nihilumbra - 0% Certainly looks like they were going for a creepy aesthetic. Get Tested - Dragon Age: Inquisition - 0% Beat the game on Nightmare difficulty, whee... Be a Hermit - Syberia - 0% Survive - Claire: Extended Edition - 0% Includes a "survival horror" tag on Steam, as well as "-Fight back Claire’s fear and stay alert with items scavenged from the dark corners of the world." in the description. BONUS CATEGORY: Summer Vacation - Final Fantasy XV - 0% May still shuffle it to Play a Sport, but having the bonus blank is silly. Thanks again for the help filling out the blanks!
  2. Thank you, especially on FFXV! I thought my only non-sports game on PS was FFX, and that didn't seem reasonable to attempt in this timeframe. Type-0's one of a handful of unfinished rentals on my profile, sadly.
  3. Wrapped up the Plants vs Zombies plat! Feels like I started it more than four months ago, though. Fun game, if repetitive. Can't say how it changes when playing the PvP modes that rotate in, but co-op's not bad at all. Generally, I found it most enjoyable in small bursts here and there. In full spirit of the "something" portion of the category title, the platinum was earned by shooting sentient thistles with a porcupine. Now that those are done, I'm trying to expand my list but having some trouble. Any suggestions? Learn Something - Assassin's Creed Origins Shoot Something - Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 Tell a Ghost Story - Nihilumbra Survive - Claire: Extended Edition Hang out at the Lake - Assassin's Creed III (maybe) Get Tested - Dragon Age: Inquisition Make Friends - Play a Sport - Final Fantasy XV Go Hiking - Severed Make Something - Put on a Show - Be a Hermit - Syberia BONUS CATEGORY: Summer Vacation - And then some random short stuff from the PS backlog that may or may not fit anywhere: Blood Knights Doki-Doki Universe Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon MonsterBag The Order: 1886 Uncanny Valley I can fill in blanks from Steam if it comes down to it.
  4. @MarkusT1992 Yeah, having a couple people handling it is certainly easier, at least when the thread gets busy. Thank you for the offer as well - I'll have to wait until I can think a bit clearer to decide, but having backup would be appreciated if Abbey needs to stay away for a while. 2005 or 10 years both make sense to me. Specifically, for 2005, it's the year before the PS3 came out. I assume that's why, at least. @eigen-space Understandable, and thanks for keeping it going. I'm hoping to be fully back within a week or so, so there wouldn't be much wait on deferred judgements anyway. I feel bad that both you and Kent had to deal with that stress, though... For general future reference, if anybody needs me, I generally catch PSN messages faster. Email alerts broke on here ages ago.
  5. @Toogie53 Thanks for the add and welcome back! Convenient laziness from making my list, is all. Finished Assassin's Creed Origins and I'll be trying to get Plants vs Zombies wrapped up today. Can't say AC was what I expected, but wow - I absolutely loved it, especially coming straight off of Assassin's Creed 3 and the stoic and bland lead that was Connor. They switched up the combat quite a bit, removing the standard block-and-counter from the older games and using something more fluid; frankly, between that and the leveling system, it felt a lot like Skyrim with AC features thrown in. That opinion has nothing to do with playing a sneaky stabby build in most runs. Gorgeous landscapes as long as you're not smack dab in the middle of a desert, better storyline than the last couple I've played... the only complaint I have is clearing out the map was a little ridiculous. It could have really used better visibility for the ?s or a checkmark if a zone was finished on the fully zoomed-out map. Very enjoyable game overall, happy I got a chance to play it earlier than planned. That said, having gone from Assassin's Creed 3 to Assassin's Creed Origins... I don't think I can't handle another Ubisoft gotta-find-'em-all, so I traded Far Cry 5 in to pick up when it goes cheaper. Going to need to figure out the rest of my list too. Oh, that reminds me - I think someone posted about needing help with PS3 Far Cry 3's co-op? Can't promise I'd be any good, but I think the disc's still around somewhere if that's still needed.
  6. First off, a huge thank you to @eigen-space for taking over while neither of us could manage the thread. It's very very appreciated. Both sides have good points - the main confusion behind it is our fault; Abbey and I have let that rule go more lax than Falion had it and let that sort of thing slide more often than not, but the only change we made to the actual rule list was my tacking on the inactive bit. She was only sticking to what was written down, and I can certainly respect and appreciate that. I'm sorry things wound up such a mess and I didn't get back to it sooner. @Dessane Thanks for the offer! It's up to you guys whether you want someone capable to step up sooner or take a bit of risk and see if I can get back to my anti-fever stuff/have brain power soon.
  7. Don't take my word as law here, since my brain is mush, but I'm pretty sure we previously let "one short" type lists slide as long as it wasn't an obviously horribly grindy/difficult one missing, be it for an event or personal preference. And wrong thread for my reply, but thanks. @eigen-space
  8. It'll likely be a week or two before I can get back to the forums, if that's not a problem and I'm not too late: Learn Something - Assassin's Creed Origins 38% Set in ancient Egypt. Even has a Discovery mode with educational tours that are a nice twist on documentaries. Go Hiking - Far Cry 5 0% Don't tend to look heavily into games ahead of time, I just assume it's similar to 3 and you'll be spending a lot of time wandering outside. Shoot Something - Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 85% Sometimes feels like the better question is "what don't you shoot?". Corn, peas, sports equipment... and that's only covering three of sixteen classes! Don't have much left to get the plat, just have to sit down and grind kills/exp. Doubt I'll get any more of the DLC done. Plan on playing them in that order as well. Would have to look into things a bit more for other categories later on. Kind of want to try and finish Assassin's Creed 3, but I think I ran into a glitch...
  9. Afraid I'll have to drop out, but thank you for being understanding. It still sounds like a lot of fun, but this month just isn't working out - hopefully I'll make it to another version later on. Thanks for running them! Good luck, everyone!
  10. ShogunCroCop, Mesopithecus, vin_rob, CJ_Mystery, The Spark, Psy-Tychist, JoaoQuique, eigen-space, PermaFox, Dessane, Jesaya815 - you should all be updated now. I apologize for the wait. Impressive work you've all put in! Not a big deal either way, it can always be changed. There's been a bit of confusion over the platinum/100% thing since the start of the first thread - I did the exact same thing! Sure seems like it'd fit to me. Well, I didn't want it to come down to this, but as you guys may have noticed with the mess at the start of the month, I'm not doing well. I'm going to be quitting the forums until my stupid brain works again, but I'll stick around and try to get updates in until @RizzleAbbey12 has time. I hope you guys all continue to make progress and have fun.
  11. Impressive timing, I was in the middle of setting up your section. Thanks for the correction.
  12. Makes a bit more sense to me to leave them out, but whatever you'd prefer works.
  13. Much as I hate to say it, I think I'm going to have to either drop out or switch my games for Vita/short ones. Haven't had much time lately.
  14. Okay, everyone should be updated now. Sorry for the delay, haven't had much time for game stuff. Sure, you're welcome to join, welcome to count them, and I'll get you added once you post your starting stats.
  15. No updates for the moment. Abbey said she'd come on and rework it. It was my mistake; I don't have anything to go on but what's in the first post, but I should've gone for a delayed rollover instead of posting it on a bad day. I wound up sticking the whole minor theme in the hardcore line. Frankly, though, I don't know where the line's supposed to be drawn. I'd like to use the Telltale Batman game we got from PS+ a while back, but Batman's power is "rich guy", so...
