  1. With all except two trophies & the plat out of the way, it's time for the next update. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne: 0% -> 71% -> 82%, Trophy list Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night: 0%, Trophy list Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana: 0%, Trophy list Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below: 0%, Trophy list Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy: 4%, Trophy list Got all pictures and all treasures. Now there are two trophies left to get. Those are for getting all small monster crowns and all large monster gold crowns. I'm missing a total of 34 crowns. It's way less than normally as I played the vanilla MHW and had to get many crowns over there as well. Other than that, I'll clear all optional quests as well. They're not required for the plat, but they can give crowns and give one final quest upon completing all of them.
  2. I suppose it's time for the first update. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne: 0% -> 71% , Trophy list Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night: 0%, Trophy list Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana: 0%, Trophy list Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below: 0%, Trophy list Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy: 4%, Trophy list Monster Hunter World: Iceborne: Cleared the story and reached MR 200. Don't be fooled by the 71% or 42/50 trophies, this will take at least another 100 to 200 hours. I'm currently leveling up my tailriders to be able to trade with them and get the treasures while farming for crowns.

Definitely liked the game. As I won't play any of the other games for the challenge (don't have the time to complete them, will save them for the next challenges), there's some more things to say. First, thanks to @MidnightDragon for hosting this challenge. This challenge made me play some great games I might've missed otherwise. Thanks for that Second, my completion. 6/9 games are at 100%, that's alright. Could've done much more if not for me playing Monster Hunter World, Dark Souls 3, and Bloodborne. The remaining games would take a long time, purely based on playtime, I might not even be at 50% of this challenge. Still, I'm fine with this. Got to play some great games and completed my Soulsborne plat collection with Demon's Souls. Third, a ranking of the completed games. 1. Fate/Extella Link 2. Demon's Souls 3. Secret of Mana 4. Cat Quest 5. Blue Reflection 6. Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls That's it, basically. I'm looking forward to the Fall/Winter Challenge and hope to see some of you there. Will aim on doing better than in the Summer Challenge.

That means I still need one last orb to upgrade a weapon, level up my magic, and beat the last two bosses. The orb is RNG, the rest isn't. If the RNG isn't too terrible, I'm probably looking at another two to three hours to get the plat. My opinion will probably be something like this: "It's a fun game and still worth playing after all these years, but having to grind ~10 hours in a game that's only ~25 hours long is too much. The grind is quite boring, enter area, oneshot enemy, rinse and repeat until you get the desired drops".
  5. Took me an entire afternoon to get all rare drops before defeating Kettle Kin. After grinding all drops in the Pure Land, it seems safe to say that this method no longer works. It took some more hours to get everything in there. That RNG manipulation sounded promising, but doesn't seem worth it after all. Didn't do much for me. Still, thanks for trying to help Anyway, update time.

Here's the to do list for the plat: - Upgrade all magic to level 8 - Upgrade all weapons to level 9 - Farm some more eqipment in the final area - Beat the remaining bosses Upgrading weapons and farming equipment are purely RNG. If it goes well, then it'll be over today. If not, then next week. I'm not really concerned about it, this is the last game I'll play for this challenge, I have plenty of time to get it done.
  6. I'll be frank. The way you described it doesn't work at all. Either there's something you didn't mention or you're wrong about the Secret of Mana remake on PS4 with the latest patch installed. Let me explain what I did: Maxed out the consumables. Killed the enemy until it dropped a chest. Opened the chest. Most of the time, it was a consumable regardless of whether I was able to carry any more or not. The chest despawned after opening it. It didn't matter how many consumables I had. So opening the same chest over and over again is not possible.

It's almost time for the first grindy part for some of the rarer pieces of equipment.
  8. @MidnightDragon Maybe I should've made my post more obvious, but I'm in as well. Here's the post with my list: https://forum.psnprofiles.com/topic/77523-fallwinter-2019-2020-backlog-challenge/?do=findComment&comment=1889931
  9. Here's my current list: Monster Hunter World: Iceborne: 0%, Trophy list Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night: 0%, Trophy list Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana: 0%, Trophy list Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below: 0%, Trophy list Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy: 4%, Trophy list Only five games this time despite having more time to get the games done. This is because of MHW Iceborne. This will probably take at least the rest of the year to complete or maybe even longer. Can't really tell with Monster Hunter games. If it's shorter than expected and all games are over way before this event ends, I can always add more. Ys VIII and Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon are games I failed to complete during the Summe Backlog Challenge. The other three games are new entries. Seeing how everyone seems to have a table, maybe I should make one too.

Defeated the first six bosses. There's still a lot to do, but it should be at 100% before this week is over.
  11. It's a hobby, don't let any rules affect it too much. It's not worth it if rules get in the way of having a good time (be it beating a challenging game or just enoying the story/music/battle system/world/whatever). Go out of your way to try to follow the rules, but don't stick to them if a game is too annoying/frustrating/bad. You have a job and not that much free time, make the most of it. Play the games you like. Get the plat in any game you start and raise its completion to 100% whenever possible. Don't torture yourself by forcing you to obtain a plat/reach 100% in a game you hate. Do a little bit of research before buying/playing to avoid having too many incomplete games due to rule 4. Don't play games you can't complete on your main account. At least 1% ultra rare trophies (PSNP rarity). This might change to 2% or 3% someday. No hidden trophies. Earn the trophies yourself. Boosting is alright, taking turns when playing with an offline friend is fine as well, but don't ask someone to do all the work because you can't/won't do it yourself. Having multiple stacks of the same game is fine. You can auto pop trophies on other stacks, but don't let it get out of hand. Current auto pops: 0 Don't play games just because they have an easy plat/100%. You can play these kinds of games and even complete all stacks, but only if you enjoy them and don't skip everything in VNs (and other games) for the fast plat. (Broke that rule a few times in the past, intend to do better in the future.) Aim on a healthy balance between easy, medium, and hard games. Focus on one or two games at a time. Offline trophies over online trophies. Unobtained trophies <= Current trophies / 10. I have 7048 trophies right now, meaning I'm allowed to have 704 unearned trophies. Long-term goal is < 500 unearned trophies and maybe less than that once I reach that goal.

After getting the plat, I still don't like the game all that much. The game has its good aspects, those being the music, the graphics, the voice acting, and an interesting level up/skill system, but the story and the characters weren't all that interesting to me. If you're more into magical girls and an all-female cast, then this might be better for you. Overall, I'd say it's a 3/5 for me. There'll be one more game I'll play for this challenge. Purely based on playtime, it'll be one of these games: Resonance of Fate, Secret of Mana, Ys VIII, Lacrimosa of Dana. Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon just takes too long to get it done this time.

Once these are out of the way, there's not much to do outside of completing the story and crafting all items. The item trophy is missable, it'll be what determines if I get the plat or not. But I should be fine since I fight all enemies and gather all materials I can find.

Wanted to make more progress, so I'm a bit behind schedule (not that I really have a schedule other than the time spent playing). Getting it done the coming weekend still seems doable.

The game doesn't really match my tastes, so far, none of the characters grew on me. Good thing it's not hard and shouldn't take that long. I'm expecting the plat next weekend, leaving me with about three weeks to finish more games for this challenge.
