  1. I think I'll join with 5 games... July 1-6: Atelier Lulua July 7-12: Grim Fandango Remastered July 13-18: Broken Age July 19-24: Fe July 25-31: Slime Rancher or Oceanhorn I might swap the order of these, but I think I'm pretty set on playing these specific games. Atelier Lulua will be first as I intend for it to be my 75th Platinum milestone, and I think it's going to take more than 6 days so I'll be playing it intermittently while I'm playing my other games Thanks for running this again @voodoo_eyes!
  2. Dragon Quest XI - Favorite part of the game so far:



    1. MidnightDragon


      Dragon Quest Mardi Gras! :yay: 

    2. thepeaguy


      The gays save the day.

  3. Whoops! Sorry about that. You should be added now! Thanks for keeping me on my toes Yes, it is perfectly fine to have started a game before the event so long as you haven't gotten the platinum before the event (or completed all trophies for the base game if you are playing any non-plat games): ~~~~~ Everyone through this point should be added. Please let me know if you do not see your name in the spreadsheet here.
  4. Target is having a strange sale on video games. If you order online and choose "in store pickup", you can get 30% off. Here's a link:



    1. DaivRules


      Tried to do In-store pickup on two items last week. Within 30 minutes, emailed that store was out of stock. Checked two hours later, website is still showing the store is in-stock on those items. It’s pretty damn annoying. Get your inventory and ordering systems fixed and in sync, Target. 

    2. MidnightDragon


      Nothing I wanted was available at my Target, but thanks.

      @DaivRules, that's annoying. I've personally never done used this option with Target. Not using it with this sale either since I'm ok with waiting til Black Friday sales for my AAA physical game purchases.

  5. Made the mistake of getting fake nails. Can't play video games with them... and can barely type.... these are coming off ASAP.

      @Eyjabria, it's more that I can feel the glue pulling at my real nail and think I'm going to rip off my natural nail somehow 😂

      Neon orange 😍

    3. thepeaguy


      You chicks and your nails. Lol.

    4. eigen-space


      They actually fell off while we were taking our photos. Oops!

      I might try to get short ones at an actual salon per your recommendation @Eyjabria 😁 I did like how nice they looked.

  6. I second what @HusKy said. I could describe my husband the exact way that you describe your wife, and we've been having a pretty good time with the game. Many levels we're able to get at least 2 stars on the first try, and there are quite a few that we've gotten 3 on the first try. Most of the levels only take maybe another 1 or 2 tries for three stars as the levels do take some strategizing rather than just blind playing. There are a few levels that have taken 5+ tries, but usually just walking away from it (especially if either person is becoming frustrated with it) and coming back to it later helps tremendously. Also, the game seems like it would be super easy with more people... so if you're having a hard time with just the two of you, try getting a third or fourth person to join in!
  7. Not all speedrunners are actually trying to get on the Fastest Achievers board. I have somewhere around ten Top 10 placements, and I only went into one of those games with a goal of fastest completion (on a game that was a remaster with no new content and a very similar trophy list). All but that intended speedrun were first-time plays that made use of guides for some things (my gaming style is to check guides for missables but play blind otherwise). Most of those games were also played "normally" (took lunch breaks, slept, went to work, etc), though I will admit that some were binged. Seeing that I've achieved a Fastest spot gives me a sense of accomplishment. I'm really big into statistics and metrics... qualitative things are important (was the game enjoyable? did I have fun playing it? did I learn something?), but quantitative metrics give me something to measure my skill against. I've also watched speedrunners at various cons, and it's super fun to watch these folks. Often I learn a lot about the game's mechanics by watching them do their runs. I will agree that it's unhealthy if you're regularly neglecting your sleep, nutrition, work, family, other relationships, etc because all you're doing is speedrunning or prepping for the speedrun. Then again, any hobby that is taken to the extreme can be unhealthy... competitive eating, ultra marathoning, underground cage fighting....
  8. It's a new thing! I use this software at my work and decided it would be a nice extra thing to do for the event while keeping up with some of my skills 😁 I used last year's data to create a template, so now all I have to do is switch the data source when games start getting completed to populate it with this year's data.
  9. Added everyone up to this point! Thanks for this! I always forget about this thread. I'm going to link to it in the main post as well
  10. The Liar Princess and Blind Prince -- does anyone know where I can buy a physical copy of this game for the PS4 (NA or EU Versions) at a reasonable price? I'm only finding physical copies of it at double the retail price, or the JP or AS version (wouldn't mind this if I knew the language)...

      @NERVergoproxy, I actually was contemplating that. Used games (and game boxes) don't bother me, but you have to be part of their service to buy that one as they are only letting you "keep it" once you've rented it. I even sent a message to their support asking if they would sell it without me having to rent it first, and they said no. I didn't want to sign up for $15 a month, as they said that there wasn't a guarantee that I'd get that game sent to me in order to "keep it" during the 30-day free trial period.

      I'm curious though... do you use their subscription service and, if so, do you like it? I was contemplating getting a service like this after I pare down my backlog a bit but I'm leaning more toward PS Now as it's cheaper for the year and you don't have to worry about mailing stuff...

    3. NERVergoproxy


      Ahh ok thats good to know..sorry for mentioning it then. haha

      I had bought games while on the service and also while out of the service(but I guess those were the official sales one). They always come in like new to mint. And im verrrrry picky.
      I'm on break from them for the last few months but had been subscribing to them before, and I really love their service. Deilvery process is pretty fast; you get your game 3-4days later after they ship and theyll also ship the next game on your list out as soon as the post office scans you dropped of a game. 

      You basically make a want to play list, and theyll send out the first one you want badly if its instock. When I was subbing, to make sure I get the games I reaally want to play I only keep the list small, or just 1 game on the list. What happens is if you have 1 game on list, theyll look for that game at their other distribution states too. Obviously those shipping may take up to 7days. 
      I would def. do the free trial and see for yourself, there's nothing to lose. 

      They also have rewards for subbing, so its pretty nice in the end. I think if you sub every 3 months u get 5$ GF funfs to spend too.

      I'm glad you got a copy!:yay:

  11. So I'm working on a Tableau dashboard using the data from the last event... trying to keep sharp with some of my analytic skills while on maternity leave Here is a link to the dashboard: https://public.tableau.com/profile/kc.grace#!/vizhome/GamingByNumbers2018/GamingByNumbers2018 It is currently optimized for viewing on a real computer, but I'm working on a mobile layout as well (haven't had to do mobile optimization before so it may take a while ) edit: on an 800x600 browser or a standard mobile phone (only thing that isn't optimized for mobile is the "Participant Completion Spreadsheet", but that's because Tableau doesn't play nice with tabular views, and anything that says "hover" requires a click if you can't hover). I'm also working on making the existing visualizations prettier as well as a couple different data filters for the participants list. I'm looking for suggestions of other ways y'all would like to see the data represented, so feel free to post suggestions! Not going to do anything super crazy with this, but I feel like I'll learn some new things if I try to take on suggestions. I've also created a list of games sorted by their last digit by looking at the Top 100 Most Popular Games for each console (PS4, PS3, Vita) so that y'all don't have to click on a million links to find your game's number (so long as what you're looking for is popular, that is). That list can be found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1A8YPl2dvdMLAaALJoXSbQl5ftexurEU-4u0ITF7Jv1Y/edit?usp=sharing This is a really neat idea! I'm glad it worked out where there's at least one Lego game per digit... though I'm not entirely surprised with how many games they have. I don't know of a way to just look at a list of the game numbers, but you can do it much quicker if you're on an actual computer using Google Chrome as the browser-- you just mouse over a link and at the bottom of your browser it will show you the URL without having to click on it. Additionally, you can look at 2018's spreadsheet (linked in the main post) to see what other people played if you're stuck on a particular number. You can also see that information laid out in a better way in the Tableau dashboard I just linked above
  12. Overcooked -- Very entertained that the raccoon avatar is in a wheelchair. This game is super inclusive.

    1. Beyondthegrave07


      My brother told me about this character, and I didn't believe him until I unlocked it! Sounded like something he'd just make up. Great choice as a character though. Probably my favorite one after the cat.

    2. eigen-space


      My other favorite is the one that looks like Andy Samberg


    3. BlazikieronUS


      I did enjoy that raccoon, I must say

  13. Went through my games... doubt I'll get to all of these, but this is my tentative plan... 8070/6030 - Little Dragons Cafe / The Sexy Brutale 3531/5241 - Broken Age / Mahjong 1692/5822 - Okami HD / Clouds and Sheep 2 6953/7023 - The Count Lucanor (NA - PS4) / Papers, Please 3304/8354 - Grim Fandango Remastered / Perils of Baking: Refrosted 7255 - Fe 9136 - Atelier Lulua (Platinum #75) 8127 - Dragon Quest IX 5128 - Overcooked (100th Completed Game) 8049/5259 - Slime Rancher / Oceanhorn (PS4)
  14. Glad to see so many people coming back for a second round of this event! And it's great to see some new names in here as well... although that may be due to the username change feature rather than y'all actually being new I created a spreadsheet for the event that's also linked at the top of the main post with everyone who has signed up so far. I've made some minor tweaks to the badge design (added outer border, outlined the username, slight changes to the crown) and altered the color panel just slightly (Color 1 is slightly darker, Color 3 is less yellow, and Color 5 is more red). Only thing that might change in the future is the font I used, but it's hard to get a font with an outline to work well when it's so small, so it might stay how it is. I also have a goal of making an event dashboard using Tableau Public to show some stats in a very pretty visual way, but that's only if the eigen-baby cooperates (usually she does ) and I don't get too distracted with my own gaming.
  15. Gaming By Numbers Time for a second instance of Gaming By Numbers! You can read all about the first go-around of the event here, though all the information is pretty much copy-and-pasted below (June 16) - Any major updates will be noted here at the top of this post. Click Here to access the Google Sheets spreadsheet where progress is being tracked. Event Categories 1) You can complete a maximum of 10 games that count toward the event, with one unique instance of the numbers 0-9. 2) The number of the game comes from the last digit in the game's "URL ID". Here is an example list: Alice: Madness Returns (PS3) is 0 as its URL ID is 900: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/900-alice-madness-returns/ My Name is Mayo (PS4) is 1 as its URL ID is 5531: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/5531-my-name-is-mayo Tales of Xillia (NA) is 2 as its URL ID is 2062: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/2062-tales-of-xillia Marvel's Spider-Man is 3 as its URL ID is 8143: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/8143-marvels-spider-man Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is 4 as its URL ID is 8864: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/8864-sekiro-shadows-die-twice Kingdom Hearts III is 5 as its URL ID is 8675: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/8675-kingdom-hearts-iii Borderlands (PS4) is 6 as its URL ID is 8956: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/8956-borderlands Tales of Xillia (EU) is 7 as its URL ID is 2077: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/2077-tales-of-xillia Heavy Rain (PS4) is 8 as its URL ID is 4398: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/4398-heavy-rain Heavy Rain (PS3) is 9 as its URL ID is 249: https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/249-heavy-rain Resources Here is the 2019 Google Sheets progress tracker. Save yourself some time with looking up your games' digits by looking at the Popular Games spreadsheet. This sheet contains the most popular 100 games for each system (PS4 PS3 Vita) based on PSNP's "Popular This Week" ranking (compiled June 18, 2019). And if you're looking for games with guides, you can check out the forum topic Platinum Rain - PSNP GameGuides Sorted By Completion Time. Feel free to check out the 2018 Tableau Dashboard to see all of the data for last time's event! One of these will be created for 2019 once the event commences and there's enough data to populate the dashboard. Feel free to suggest various ways to slice'n'dice the data, and I'll see what sort of magic I can work! Note: I have done my best to provide accurate information for all the games/data listed in the linked documents, but it is each participant's individual responsibility to ensure accuracy for the games they complete, including-- but not limited to-- accuracy of the represented digit, validation that servers are still online/completion is obtainable, correct listing of completed games, etc. Rewards You will get an event badge, designed by me, within a few weeks of the event ending so long as you complete at least 4 numbers. The event badges will be semi-unique as it will get "colored in" based on the games you complete, like a Color-By-Numbers activity! Below is what they look like without any color: And here is this year's "color panel" (some of them are image effects rather than individual colors) so that you can prioritize your games based on your favorite colors. Similar to last year, the spots where these colors go are being kept secret for now Important Dates Sign-up Ends: Midnight, July 15, 2019 (countdown clock) Event Starts: 12:00:01 AM, July 1, 2019 (countdown clock) Event Ends: Midnight, September 15, 2019 (countdown clock) --Timezone is MST; you can use the provided countdown clocks for reference --If you sign up after the event start date (but before the sign-up cutoff), I'll count any games completed during the event time frame even if they were completed before you signed up Rules 1) As you could probably tell from the examples, you are allowed to stack games! Different trophy lists have different IDs for different regions, different systems, or even physical versus digital releases! 2) Your game will count so long as you get 100% of the base game between the event start and end dates. If your game has a platinum, this means getting the platinum is necessary, but you do not need to complete any associated DLC. Similarly, for a game that has no platinum, you will only need to complete the base game trophies (example: Little Nightmares has several DLC packs-- only the 13 base game trophies need to be completed). 3) If you got 100% for the base game before the event started, that game cannot be used for the event even if you still have DLC to complete. However, you can use games that you have made progress in before the event started (i.e.-- you do not need to start games from 0% completion). 4) The game's URL ID has to match the number category for it to count for that category. No exceptions! Make sure you are clicking on the correct region/system/version link before playing your game! 5) You do not have to complete your games in any specific order. Game Updates You don't need to submit a list beforehand, or even at all! I will be updating everyone who has signed up for the event in a Google Sheets spreadsheet (link here) on a weekly-ish basis by looking at what games are completed on their profile. However, it's always fun to see what everyone intends to play, so feel free to discuss your gaming plans and progress! Note: As I am updating these games based on what I see on profiles rather than what people post in the forum, whichever game I see first (usually your first completed game) will be recorded in the spreadsheet. Any requests to list a different game in the spreadsheet will be refused unless it's due to error on my part-- such as listing a game you didn't actually complete, etc; this makes my life easier, especially since this event had nearly 100 participants last time. Happy Gaming!
