  1. Nice! Definitely picking this up!
  2. Literally all of the Nintendo post-launch Smash Ultimate fighters need to be purchased. The BEST thing (*sarcasm*) is that Piranha plant has to be purchased separately from all of the other character packs. 😒 I have heard that Piranha plant is one of the best fighters though, so maybe it's worth the $6 alone. There's two fighter packs and Piranha plant as pay for DLC. I still haven't bought them, but I might if they ever go on sale (all of them combined are nearly the price of the game itself). Also, most are NOT just characters from Fire Emblem lmao. I think there's one. Sephiroth, Sora, Banjo Kazooie, Joker, Kazuya are all available as pay for DLC, just to name a few. If you mean the main game and not the post-launch DLC having way to many Fire Emblem characters, that's fair. TL;DR, this doesn't surprise me at all.
  3. Almost reminds me of Biomutant. I would buy day 1 to support the developers if it has a physical release.
  4. Update 8 - Final Update We made it! Thanks for hosting the event @MidnightDragon, I enjoyed knocking a few things off my backlog that have been sitting for a while. I finished just about everything I was aiming to do, minus NFS Rivals (SO CLOSE, made it to level 42 Racer!!!) and the Uncharted 2 100%, but I’m real happy with just the plat for now. Definitely going to finish up Rivals this week. Thank you to everyone who’s posted, I’ve also enjoyed reading all of your updates! It’s been a lot of fun! For the summer I won’t be joining, but I WILL DEFINITELY be creeping on ya’ll’s progress. I might be back for the winter challenge, we’ll see how busy I am in my new job. Ta ta for now!

  5. Update 7 Hope everyone is doing well! Here’s to the final push!!! Haven't decided yet if I'm going to join for the summer. Instead of completing things, I have about 10-15 games (many of them long, open world games) that need to at least be started (and maybe even have the story played through). I'm beginning my new job on September 1st, so I won't have much time for gaming after then. It could potentially add to my backlog of minimally played games, rather than reducing it as per the event philosophy, so I'm hesitating. 😅 NFS Rivals Special thanks to @rjkclarke for helping me out with those online trophies. I was so worried about them and you made it a breeze! It was great playing with you. Currently level 35 cop, level 18 racer, 79/100 gold medals. Enjoying the cop part, the racer part is a bit difficult. Hoping to finish this by Thursday, as I’m going to be away for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. That will probably complete the challenge for me, since I won’t have time to finish Brutal for Uncharted 2 (but maybe speedrun…). Leveling up is going a bit slower than I thought though, so it’ll be a tight finish!

  6. Update 6 Not a part of this challenge (too high completion %), but I had to finish the Bugsnax DLC before I lose my Plus subscription on 5/19. If you haven’t played Bugsnax, I HIGHLY recommend it. I live for Chandlo and Snorp-dawg. I very much enjoyed the Island of Bigsnax and the shrinking mechanic (Floofty and Snorpy need to start on a shrink ray). The developers came up with some interesting and fun ideas with the mail requests (especially the scan requests - Grapesquito sucking on a Noodler and the Sandopede hanging from a Lollive were hilarious). Ratchet and Clank Upgrading the weapons didn’t take too long, and I played Challenge mode on easy. I was able to max out everything before beating the final boss, so it wasn’t as bad as I originally thought it might be. NFS Rivals I loved NFS Hot Pursuit 2 back in the PS2/Gamecube era. I like just picking out a car, a color, and racing. I have never liked all this ‘tweaking out your car with upgrades’ stuff. I thought that this game would be similar to Hot Pursuit 2. It’s not, you still need to upgrade your car (cop cars are just the weapons though, so I liked that better; but weapons???). I’ve also been dragging my feet on this game because it has online, even though it’s super simple. I just need friends to do it. :’) Since it was released in 2013, and it’s all technically online (barf, who thinks of these things), I don’t want the servers to go down before I can complete it, so here we are. If anybody has this game and wants to help me out next week with Buddy Bust and Friendly Race hit me up, just need to do it by next Thursday (5/19). Otherwise, I might swap this out for something more enjoyable. Octodad Blub blub bluuuurb [excited octopus noises]! But seriously, this game was a lot of fun. Short and sweet, the end was super cute. The completion percentage is really low, so I thought the miscellaneous trophies would be difficult. They’re actually super easy, the most difficult was “The Secret Gardener”, and it only takes a few short attempts to get.

  7. I had some trophies pop early (Kelp Forest of Fear popped when I hadn’t found all campers, for example), which I was concerned about glitching for the 100%, but I ended up having no issues.
  8. Just an FYI, I got it while driving a Ferrari and busting a Mustang. It might pop while busting others who are driving Mustangs, rather than being the driver OF the Mustang.
  9. Update 5 April’s just about done! Really feel like I’ve been making a good dent in my backlog, especially for games that have been sitting for years. Here’s to the final month of the Spring Challenge! Immortals Fenyx Rising I finished this up. The end game is very grindy, even if you’re working on myth quests, vaults, and chests throughout the game. I needed to go through about 30 more chests to get the rest of the gems I needed to upgrade my weapons and armor, after finishing everything else. Still enjoyed it, and might replay the PS4 version legit at some point....if I even run out of games in my backlog.... Ratchet and Clank I was dreading getting back into this game. I started it on normal difficulty, and I feel like I keep getting hit and dying for no reason. It makes no sense how much different enemies harm you, and the ground smash has almost no use. Whenever I use it, I rarely hit any of the enemies, the ones I do hit get very little damage, and then they hit you like 5 times before you can get another hit in. Overall it’s been frustrating. I died to the final boss like 15 times on normal (I had him down to 20% soooooo many times), changed it to easy, died a few more times, and finally beat him. Still have some of challenge mode left, hoping to finish it up next week. Octodad Enjoyable story, less fun when you go for the trophies. I don’t mind the controls, I think they’re pretty well implemented.

  10. Update 4 Hope everyone’s doing well! Been a bit busy with real life these past few weeks, so I haven’t made as much progress as I wanted to, but I'm almost finished with Immortals Fenyx Rising. Immortals Fenyx Rising I have a lot to say about this game, so buckle up (or ignore me, I’ll understand). First of all, it’s freaking hilarious if you find puns and dad jokes funny, which I absolutely do. I respect the humor isn’t for everyone, but I loved it. The premise is, Typhon is taking over the world. Zeus is all “Oh nooooo…well we’re all just gonna die anyways so I’ll have a cocktail. Yo Prometheus, what’s hanging? Oh, your liver? Ahahaha, I’m so hilarious.” And Prometheus is all “Zeusy boi, you don’t even KNOW what’s about to happen, lemme tell you a story. Also, if I’m right about what happens, you have to free me.” So while the player character is being all hero-y and saving the world, Prometheus is narrating to Zeus, and Zeus is being….well, Zeus. There are so many great jokes throughout the game. For example, at one point you’re helping Ares find something and he goes, “We could track it by Amazon. And by Amazon I mean THE Amazons, my daughters. Trackers with uncanny tracking abilities.” For every quest, Zeus has something to say. In one quest you’re helping Hephaestus get his forge running again. The name of the quest is “Light My Fire”, the quest description is “To get the forge fires started again, four furnaces needed to be reignited.” Zeus’ little aside: “What do you call this, four play?” This game is rated T and it is SO CLOSE to crossing the line sometimes, I was constantly cracking up. I absolutely love this game. Is it grindy? Sure. A collectathon? Definitely. A Breath of the Wild clone? Yeah, probably. Are the puzzles annoyingly simple but so much effort you’re constantly saying to yourself “Ugh, I know exactly what to do, but doing it is AWFUL”? Absolutely. But it’s also one of those games where you’re just like “I’m just going to do this one last little thing,” then you realize it’s two hours later and you did like 8 other little things. Nothing is particularly hard, but at times it can be tedious. I think you could compare it to AC Valhalla in some ways. To open a chest, sometimes you have to do a puzzle. To get INTO a dungeon, sometimes you have to do a puzzle. To get THROUGH the dungeon, you have to do multiple puzzles. To open a chest inside the dungeon, guess what? Puzzle. You could look them all up, but they’re all pretty simple, you can usually just look around your environment and see what you have to do rather than looking it up online. I do recommend looking up the lyre challenges though, as it gets even more tedious trying to remember a tune (which, you guessed it, you needed to solve a puzzle for), go to another part of the map, and then regurgitate it, over and over again. Overall though, I’m enjoying the simple puzzles and fun humor, and I hope they make a sequel.

  11. I play these games mainly to play with Disney characters and in Disney worlds, as I’m a huuuuge Disney fan. Right now this looks like it’s going to be lacking in Disney, so I don’t know how I feel about it. Sort of excited because new (?) but also a little meh.
  12. Update 3 First month done! It seems like everyone is making pretty good progress on their lists! I forgot to post an update last Friday because Bridgerton season 2 dropped. Binging that was a priority so I didn’t play games until I finished the new season (regrets because now I have to wait a year for season 3). This week I was a bit sick, so I was able to stay home and finish up Infamous: Second Son. Spongebob: Battle for Bikini Bottom This was so much easier with a guide. I played most of it without, and collected just about all the golden spatulas, but the socks were eluding me. Going through each level with a guide makes it so simple, so if anyone is thinking of adding this to their list since it’s on PS plus this month, go for it. Ratchet and Clank The gameplay reminds me of Knack. I only played through the first couple missions so far. Infamous: Second Son Serious Nina Sharpe vibes from Augustine (maybe more like serious Fringe vibes all around?). I wasn’t really getting the story until I started picking up the audio logs (and, of course, the ending), but I ended up liking it. TV power was the best, in my opinion. Rocketing around with angel wings was awesome. I also liked being good waaaay better than being bad. Evil felt a bit out of character for Delsin. Overall, I thought the game was pretty good for being almost ten years old. Since I made some decent progress in the first month, I want to add a couple other games - Octodad and Immortals Fenyx Rising. Keep up the good work everybody!

  13. A related question -- the store has two different versions of the Year One Upgrade DLC. Is one only PS4 and the other only PS5, or are they interchangeable?
  14. OOF hahaha. I love how it looks on a profile, but definitely not my cup of tea. I usually avoid playing back to back from the same franchise because I do get tired of them. UC isn't as bad as other series, since the games themselves aren't very long (here's looking at you, Kingdom Hearts and new AC games), but since you have to play through each game a couple times, I prefer to break it up with other games, otherwise it gets boring. And brutal for 100%, blehhhhggg.
  15. Update 2 Good to see everybody’s updates! Hope everyone is doing well. Uncharted 2 You guys, I did it. After four hours with Lazarovic on Saturday, then dropping my controller and taking my dog to play outside, I came back in and BEAT HIM. He was really difficult for me on normal mode, so I’m pretty proud of myself! Crushing is complete, although I’m not sure if I’m motivated to go back to UC 3. 😅 Now that I have the plat, I might call this done. I’d like to work on a few other games before going for 100%, if I do decide to go for it. For that, I have to do the full speedrun, and I would probably need to use the cheats for Brutal, which is going to take some organizing. Spongebob I finished the story, and I’m at about 80 golden spatulas and 30 socks; the socks need a guide, and I wasn’t that into following one after getting all treasures in UC2. The one level I’m really having issues with is Spongebob’s dream, which requires legit Mario-style platforming. Hoping to finish it over the weekend. Infamous Second Son At first I didn’t realize that the stars are where I’m supposed to go for the story, so I ended up doing everything in the first district because I didn’t know what to do. I’m about 20% of the way through the story now, but so far it’s not as interesting as I thought it would be. Augustine sort of reminds me of Nina Sharp from Fringe though.
