  1. I could've sworn I'd signed up for this, but it must have slipped my mind... and so did making a note of my stats on Jan 1st. Good start to the year! Current, slightly-belated stats: Platinum trophies: 43 Total 100% completed titles: 55 Completion percentage: 46.91%
  2. It seems like everyone's making good progress with this event, nice. Hope 2019 has started well for you all. I'm starting to think Utawarerumono isn't for me, but here's a substitute game for my list: 3 French Hens - The Invisible Hours - developed by Tequila Works who are based in Madrid. It has a fairly European cast of characters as well, including a few Brits and a French actress.
  3. Thanks for running the event, it must've been a lot of work at times.
  4. This is a great idea for an event, awesome. With a whole year to worth with, I might even manage a complete line! I've crossed off my first game of 2019 - started The Invisible Hours last night and finished it this morning. It's a murder mystery that takes place in Nikola Tesla's mansion, an odd little game / walking sim / stage play. I wouldn't recommend it at full price at all, but it has a few good twists and decent enough writing.
  5. It seems like everyone's getting on well. Quick update from me: two games down! 11 Pipers Piping: Guardians of the Galaxy 6 Geese A-Laying: Detroit: Become Human GotG was 100% what you'd expect from a Telltale MCU spin-off, for better or for worse, but it was mildly amusing throughout - it's no Tales from the Borderlands, but it's not a bad time either. Detroit felt like a step forward for Quantic Dream and I'll always be a sucker for games with real narrative branching, so I had a very good time with it despite small grievances (why not let your flowchart decisions carry forward automatically without having to play through every scene along the way?) and some questionable heavy-handed symbolism and Cage-isms.
  6. My game for December kinda fell into my lap - I didn't have any bright ideas for snow games, but then I was finishing Detroit: Become Human over the weekend and, well, duh. Outside of a snowboarding game or an Arctic survival sim, I think it might be about as snow-filled as you could hope for - the weather in most scenes is somewhere between 'just finished snowing' and 'actual blizzard'.
  7. I'd like to hop in at the last minute as well, please, I've been procrastinating on a list but this is a great idea for a themed challenge. Initial ideas: 12 Drummers Drumming: 11 Pipers Piping: Guardians of the Galaxy - I don't know if it's going to be any good as a game, but the soundtrack is a highlight 10 Lords A-Leaping: 9 Ladies Dancing: 8 Maids A-Milking: 7 Swans A-Swimming: 6 Geese A-Laying: Detroit: Become Human - take your pick of father issues, broken homes, lost sons and surrogate mothers. I guess this would also work for French Hens... 5 Gold Rings: 4 Colly Birds: 3 French Hens: 2 Turtle Doves: Utawarerumono - haven't got very far in this, but I know there are knights riding strange giant birds: And a Partridge in a Pear Tree:
  8. Sign me up as well, please - I've had a few slow months for gaming, but winter is usually a good chance to catch up. Shenmue II - 12% Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception - 20% Guardians of the Galaxy - 20% I Expect You to Die - 4% Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice - 9% Not too difficult as lists go, I wanted to start with something manageable and see how it goes.
  9. Thanks! I'd already wrapped up the main story, the monster-hunting contracts and Gwent (good old Gwent), so it was mostly miscellaneous combat trophies this time around. I was dreading one that requires killing a heck of a lot of people with crossbow shots to the head, but it went much faster than I expected thanks to a spot where a couple of low-level enemies keep respawning more-or-less instantly. The joy of cheese...
  10. It turns out that I was coming up on my 40th platinum which I'd wanted to be the Witcher 3, to make up for my previous milestones being completely random. So, after a speedy 3 years and 1 month, that's my sequel for November. Stat changes during the year: Platinum trophies: +19 100% completed: +5 Completion: +5.31%
  11. As well as @Milktastrophe's suggestions, you could make a case for anything with dinosaurs or dragons. Eagles are a recurring theme in Assassin's Creed, and there are notable crows in various Dark Souls (bit of a stretch!).
  12. The last few months have not been great for me, gaming-wise - things have been eventful with work and my family (nothing serious), and I just haven't made time to focus on games. Apologies for the disappearing act. I did finish a couple of short games in October (428 Shibuya Scramble and Overcooked), but neither of them could be said to have a stealth system by any stretch of the imagination! Could I use a skip for the month please, if possible? This month's theme should be easier - I started Shenmue 2 and have been meaning to get back to it.
  13. You need to unlock all the Special Episodes before you can get to Mean Clean's story - the first set are unlocked by answering quiz questions, the rest by inputting hidden codes on specific screens. This is the best guide I've seen.
  14. I've only played the first couple of hours, but so far I'm impressed by the quality of the translation and writing - it's a cut above what I expected. I'll report back when I get a bit further in and hopefully get more time with the battle system as well.
  15. Catching up with the thread - it hasn't been a great summer for gaming here, so I didn't finish any games at all back in July, or even really play anything at all. I have two finished games for August, but I don't think either of them qualify for the theme (feeding the cat in Shenmue is as close as it gets) - could I use a skip to count Shenmue as my game for August, please?
