  1. Nooo, of course not!! πŸ˜„ I missed a couple of areas before beating the final boss, and many, many other things. Man this game is WAY bigger than I thought! It is amazing though, you were right about that! πŸ™‚ I checked the path of pain out.. well that's something I won't complete.. πŸ˜‚ Update Shall we see where we are? Hollow Knight Alright, only late game stuff left to do. I cleaned up all collectables, charms, power ups (had missed quite some stuff, let me tell you!), did the Grimm Troupe quest (I banished the troupe, I was feeling bad for Brumm!), completed the hunters journal... This game is PACKED with content, I sure as hell wasn't expecting so much from a 15$ indie game... Whatever Team Cherry is bringing out in the future, it's an instant buy for me! πŸ˜ƒ Anyways, I also needed to complete the last trial in the colosseum, the Trial of the Fool. And let me tell ya, that was no joke! 😳 It took me a couple of attempts to beat, experimenting with different builds. Especially one part in the middle where the arena only consists of walls and spikes for a floor, thus there is no chance to heal for a couple of waves of enemies, was particularly challenging. But hey, I persevered, and that's now done. I then proceeded to find my way to Godhome, where five pantheons, the only thing I have left to do in this game, await me. Those are boss-rush type of challenges. The first four consist of nine bosses each from the main game, and one additional boss that could not be encountered before. I did the first one so far, which was pretty easy (of course, since it consists of early game bosses). The last one, however, wants you to fight against 42 or sobosses in a row! With the last three bosses being the absolute hardest thing this game has to offer... Or so I heard. I think it will still take me a while to complete this thing πŸ˜‚ Trackmania Turbo The reason why I didn't write an update earlier this week is that I just got my 180th gold medal literally five minutes ago. Let me write this out: I FINISHED BLACK VALLEY! πŸŽ‰πŸ»πŸŽ‰ That's right, it took me eight days to complete this incredibly, incredibly hard subseries. Holy shit, I was already struggling quite a bit with this game, but some of those tracks are completely INSANE. The worst ones were the multilap (of course), which took me three hours to complete, followed by the last Valley track #180 (4.5 hours), which was hard, but honestly a lot of fun to drive, so it didn't bother me that much. But the absolute WORST has to be #178, a completely unfair piece of shit of a track that took me freaking six hours to complete!!! This is longer than it took me to get Zombie Boy or Girl Boy for fucks sake! Six freaking hours to get a gold medal on a track that takes less than two minutes to complete when driven properly... I am really happy that I managed to pull this off... πŸ˜„ I think I'll do the same thing I did after completing Black Canyon and will attempt to get some early game Valley Trackmaster Medals (I have 10 so far, I'll try to get about 14-15), and then it's time for Black Lagoon! By the way, I signed up for the Gaming by Numbers event hosted by eigen-space, I still need to come up with a list of games I wanna complete. Trackmania Turbo and Hollow Knight are definitely going in there, that's for sure!
  2. Neither Bound nor OlliOlli2 should be equivalent to Trackmania Turbo, holy shit that game πŸ˜… Definitely Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. Everything in that game can be done on the easiest difficulty, and shouldn't take longer than a couple of hours if only played for trophies. It's the most fun to be had on the PS4 in couch-coop, just a genious game. Realistically this should be a ~35% plat. I would also mention Lords of the Fallen. I mean I understand why it is ultra rare, but personally I didn't dislike the game THAT much.
  3. I'm with Cassy on this one. I only play games I'm interested in, which helps maintaining a reasonable backlog (in terms of size). And, you know, from there I just play about three games at a time (one for long sessions, one for short sessions, one for couch-coop) and whenever I 100% one, I replace it with another game from the same "category". Whenever DLC comes out for games I have previously gotten 100%, I try to get to it rather sooner than later, too.
  4. I'd probably have to go with Dead Cells, which in the EU-version sits at roughly 6%. From what I hear, though, it is very likely that Hollow Knight (EU ~5.8%) will take the title once I'm done with it. Only have the pantheons left, but they will take a while to complete.
  5. Well i recently put Crypt of the NecroDancer on my profile. I haven't played much yet, but popped two trophies for it. Pretty sure I'm never going to have a 100% again πŸ˜…
  6. Alright, I still have #175 to do (tried once yesterday for the first time, drove awefully, still got a medal, just not gold πŸ˜…), but I have to agree with the majority here that #178 is just brutal and unfair. It took me freaking 6 hours to get gold on that one, I kept messing up the walljumps (the trailers seem to have weird edges that can flip your car in a what seems rather random way), and messed up often in easy parts too. The track was so annoying! I did #180 yesterday. Still took me 3.5 - 4 hours, but the track is actually very fun to drive, so it never felt like a chore to attempt it over and over. The last 90 degree boost jump screwed me over several times... But, I got it 😁 Otherwise, I spent 2 hours on each of #172 and #176, and about an hour or less on each of the other tracks. Let's see how long it takes to get #175, and then it's off to Lagoon! For the record, Black Canyon is definitely easier overall though still the second hardest subseries so far, but only because Valley has those two tracks #178 and #180 that are mental. In Canyon, I spent 2.5 hours on #170 and for some reason I also had quite a bit of trouble with #166... 😳
  7. Just quoting this since I noticed that I have not been added to the Google Sheet but others that have signed up after me have πŸ˜…
  8. Congrats, you got premium ✌🏻

      @BB-BakkerJ man, I don't know what to say... that's incredibly generous... 😢
      Thanks a lot, really! I appreciate it. Just wow...Β

      No problem. I like your profile and the games you play.

      Well, thanks a lot! Getting premium gifted is about the biggest compliment on my profile!Β πŸ˜€

  9. They actually do. But the threshholds aren't valid anymore. With the latest update, they changed the scoring system. Now, the maximum score per note is 115 points, before it was 110. I guess you still need at least 90% of the total score in a song to get SS rank. For Legend, before the update that was 221'958 points. With the new scoring system, you need 232'047 points (or, you know, something along these lines...). This is all speculation, though.. I finished this game before the last update, but this would make sense to me.
  10. Trackmania Turbo... The dreaded Black Valley, destroyer of platinum-dreams... I went into this mentally prepared, decided to take it slow. Not gonna lie, some tracks are just brutal.Β 

    Β 

    But, so far, 5 days, 5 Gold medals. Not that this was my goal, but I'm happy with this average of one map cleared a day, especially since I don't have much time under the week.Β If I can keep this up, this subseries should be over without me aging too much in the process due to stressΒ πŸ˜‚

    Β 

    Let's see if I can make this 5 days 6 Gold medalsΒ :ninja:

      Gj man, keep it up. The best tracks Start now. :D

    2. Spaz

      I mean, if you got through Super Meat Boy, you can do Trackmania Turbo.

      Β 

      Granted, I'm terrible at racing games.

  11. I can only agree with the above. Overcooked is the game I used to introduce my partner to the PS4, and she is nowadays more excited than I am whenever new Overcooked levels come out πŸ˜… In any case, I think there is one tricky ice level to get three stars, but the game is otherwise rather easy, even with someone that doesn't play games on a regular basis. Challenge is subjective, but I'd give this 3-4/10 in challenge (let me quantify things, ok? 😁)
  12. I got this one solo October 2018, and to the best of my knowledge, no patches have been released in the meantime. I actually would recommend doing this alone anyways, at most with a second player, since the amount of enemies that spawn increases with every additional player and becomes really unmanageable in a game with 3-4 people.
  13. There is a clear choice for me, and I know there is no chance in hell that no further trophies will be added, but one can only hope: Red Dead Redemption 2. As mentioned above, new trophies for this game will most likely be for the online part of the game, which is a really, REALLY dull and dreadfull experience. However, if new trophies require to do more missions etc, then I woudln't mind so much. Throw in a trophy to grind another 50 online ranks and I throw my PS4 out of the window. πŸ˜–
  14. Hmm I was hesitant to participate since I misread and thought that the event runs for 1.5 months... I still think I won't manage 10 games in 2.5 months, but let's see I have a couple of games in my backlog that I've already checked end in different figures, so they are eligible. And open games count, so Trackmania Turbo and Hollow Knight (EU) are already set! (Since I won't finish either before the end of the month, I think). Will post a list at a later time, but count me in!
  15. It's this one (followed by Bound with 1 day difference): Titan Souls - 1.92% - 1 week 4 days. Though I'm usually rather slow at completing my games. This one could be easily done in ~2 days.
