  1. Thanks for the suggestion - good idea, but I've got way too many Bases and Taskmaster challenges left, I don't fancy my chances in 24 hours. To make up for being super last minute in January, I finished a plat today that I think might fit for February - AI: The Somnium Files. Aiba is an AI-slash-artificial eyeball who can leave the main character's head and walk around in a tiny weird jelly-robot body. Not exactly a conventional robot game, so I can find something else if that doesn't work for the theme.
  2. File this under extremely last minute, but I just finished the story of Spider-Man for January. At the start I was thorough with side activities but I completely ran out of time for the month, so the last act was pretty brisk! The gameplay is fun enough that I definitely plan to go back and tie up loose ends.
  3. Glad to see this event is going strong. I had a really bad year for gaming but hope to turn that around in 2020, so sign me up for this year, please. Starting stats: Platinum Trophies - 44 100% Completed Games (total) - 56 Completion - 45.18%
  4. Great idea for an event - sign me up, please. I had a pretty terrible 2019 for gaming and something like this should help me to focus more. Some ideas for games: Focus on Family = Life is Strange 2 - Stars a pair of brothers. I was waiting for all the episodes to come out before starting the game. Get a Better Job = Return of the Obra Dinn - The player character is working as an insurance assessor throughout the game (and really should consider looking for a better job). I need to do a second playthrough for one particular trophy. Lose the Weight = AI: the Somnium Files - Mama and Mayumi are both on the chunky side. Just got this as a Christmas present, great game so far. Update Relationship Status = Psychadelica of the Black Butterfly - Not exactly a romance game, but I'm pretty sure there are romance routes with various guys. I'd forgotten all about this game to be honest, it didn't blow me away. Volunteer More = Atelier Lydie & Suelle - No shortage of side quests to help friends and acquaintances. I had to include one longer game on the list...
  5. 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%
  6. 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.
  7. Thanks for running the event, it must've been a lot of work at times.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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'.
  11. 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:
  12. 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.
  13. 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...
  14. 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%
  15. 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!).
