  1. I know I fell off the map during the Summer Backlog Challenge but I'd like to give this a try. I probably won't be updating much this month as I am just getting used to going back to school but I definitely want to finish some games from my backlog because as mentioned in the first post, there are a ton of good games coming out this Fall. 1. Sly 2: Band of Thieves (PS3) - 34% 2. Tales from the Borderlands (PS3) - 28% 3. A Plague Tale: Innocence - 14% 4. Grim Fandango Remastered - 6% 5. A Way Out - 0% This is my initial list. Going to wait until Borderlands 3 releases to decide if I'll add it. Same with Death Stranding. I am almost definitely going to add Control but I am waiting until it's on sale (around Black Friday perhaps) to pick it up since its a fairly short game from what I've read.
  2. I honestly didn't play any video games in August. 😓 I suffered a back injury at the end of July and work had taken all of my energy. I am now on medical leave from work but I also just started school. I also only realized today that I totally forgot to post my game for July as well. (would have been The Wolf Among Us on PS3 - which satisfied the hardcore challenge as the Witching Well chamber was underground). I totally understand if that can't be added in now as its over a month later that I am announcing it. Stat changes during the year:Platinum trophies: +14100% completed: +17Completion: +6.57%
  3. 1. Sly 2: Band of Thieves (PS3) - 18%->31% 2. Bound by Flame (PS3) - 4% 3. Broken Age - 18% 4. The Walking Dead Collection - 100% [6.25.19] 5. Murdered Soul Suspect - 100% [6.25.19] 6. A Plague Tale: Innocence - 14% Was on vacation for the past week. Just made a bit more progress on Sly 2: Band of Thieves today. Hoping to finish at least two or three games this month but it's looking like chances are slim.
  4. 1. Sly 2: Band of Thieves (PS3) - 1%->18% 2. Bound by Flame (PS3) - 4% 3. Broken Age - 18% 4. The Walking Dead Collection - 40%->100% [6.25.19] 5. Murdered Soul Suspect - 29%->100% [6.25.19] 6. A Plague Tale: Innocence - 14% Turned on my PS3 for the first time in about a month and made some progress on Sly 2: Band of Thieves. I am loving this one much more than the first one which while it was fun in its own right had a ton of issues. I haven't really felt up for gaming on my Playstation systems lately, partially because I have been reading a lot more and prepping for college but also because I have started playing Super Mario Maker 2 on my Switch since it came out last week.
  5. Adding one game. It doesn't change my ranking at all but it does bring me closer to Still.Not.Bitten. Batman Detroit Become Human Game of Thrones Life is Strange Life is Strange: Before the Storm Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1 + DLC Tales from the Borderlands The Walking Dead Season 1 + DLC The Walking Dead Season 2 The Walking Dead Collection The Wolf Among Us
  6. Here is my post for June. It was a slow month for me in regards to games but a very busy month because it was PRIDE and I went to multiple events. Murdered Soul Suspect Complete a game that counts towards a different PSNP event. (Summer 2019 Backlog Challenge) Complete a game that fulfills the Hardcore requirement of that month. ( with 49 trophies) The Walking Dead Collection Complete a game that counts towards a different PSNP event. (Summer 2019 Backlog Challenge) Complete a game that fulfills the Hardcore requirement of that month. ( with 52 trophies) STATS UPDATE Platinum trophies: 44 (+13)100% completed: 56 (+16)Completion: 35.82% (+5.9%)
  7. Thanks for the badges! This was such a fun event.
  8. 1. Sly 2: Band of Thieves (PS3) - 1% 2. Bound by Flame - 4% 3. Broken Age - 18% 4. The Walking Dead Collection - 40%->100% [6.25.19] 5. Murdered Soul Suspect - 29%->100% [6.25.19] 6. A Plague Tale: Innocence - 14% Finished two of my six games. Going to try to finish most of Broken Age tonight. I was hoping to get those three and A Plague Tale: Innocence done this month but I've been spending time outdoors with friends on my days off and also participating in other hobbies.
  9. Sorry I didn't type up a full intro to my second book. I have been so incredibly busy that interacting on forums has been difficult lately. I will have an Outro for book two (Watership Down) later today and will have an intro for my next book (once I choose it when I get home).
  10. My second book is Watership Down as an ebook.
  11. 1. Sly 2: Band of Thieves (PS3) - 1% 2. Bound by Flame - 4% 3. Broken Age - 14%->18% 4. The Walking Dead Collection - 28%->40% 5. Murdered Soul Suspect - 29% 6. A Plague Tale: Innocence - 12%->14% Made progress on half of my games. Hoping to make a considerable amount more this week as I have the apartment to myself.
  12. Outro for The Three-Body Problem When I initially started reading the book it took me a little bit of effort to get used to the similarities in the names since surnames are used first in the Chinese language. Once I delved in though, the characters really speak for themselves in the way they are written. That is to say by paying attention to what they do and how they do it, it's easy to keep track of who is who. I finished the entirety of Part I of the book which is titled Silent Spring - a reference to an actual book by Rachel Carson which was published in 1962. This book is read by one of the main characters, Ye Wenjie, and gets her into further trouble with the Red Coast as she is already stationed at a re-education camp and the book is considered contraband. This beginning portion of the book focuses almost entirely on the Chinese Cultural Revolution and it's impact on Ye Wenjie. There is very little sci-fi in this portion of the book but the world pulls you in completely. It really sets the backdrop. I am definitely going to continue reading this book and at the rate I'm going it should only take about seven more hours of actively reading for me to finish it. The writing is superb and I am actually going to struggle to put this down to start a different book.
  13. 1. Sly 2: Band of Thieves (PS3) - 1% 2. Bound by Flame - 4% 3. Broken Age - 5%->14% 4. The Walking Dead Collection - 28% 5. Murdered Soul Suspect - 29% 6. A Plague Tale: Innocence - 12% I ended up starting a new save file for Broken Age but still managed to make a bunch of progress on it. The art style is lovely but it's an odd story.
  14. I am really terrible at keeping up with posting the games I complete. Here is a full update. Completed games will have the date next to them.
  15. I'd like to join if possible. My first book will be The Three Body Problem by Liu Cixin and translated by Ken Liu (Liu Cixin is Chinese and therefore his surname is listed first while Ken Liu is American and uses the English order with the surname second). "The Three-Body Problem (Chinese: 三体; literally: 'Three-Body'; pinyin: sān tǐ) is a hard science fiction novel by the Chinese writer Liu Cixin. It is the first novel of the Remembrance of Earth's Past (Chinese: 地球往事) trilogy, but Chinese readers generally refer to the whole series by the title of this first novel.[1]The second and third novels in the trilogy are titled The Dark Forest and Death's End. The title of the first novel refers to the three-body problem in orbital mechanics." (From WikiPedia) "Set against the backdrop of China's Cultural Revolution, a secret military project sends signals into space to establish contact with aliens. An alien civilization on the brink of destruction captures the signal and plans to invade Earth. Meanwhile, on Earth, different camps start forming, planning to either welcome the superior beings and help them take over a world seen as corrupt, or to fight against the invasion. The result is a science fiction masterpiece of enormous scope and vision." (Synopsis on the back of the book) I chose this book because one of my staff was reading the second in the series and knew I enjoyed Sci-Fi so he told me about it. I am particularly interested in hard sci-fi (which this is) & am excited to read a book written by a Chinese author as his worldview & perspective is bound to be different than my own. This is technically not from my backlog of owned books but it's something that I've been intending to acquire/read for about two months now & FINALLY just asked my staff if I could borrow his copy so I would stop dragging my feet about starting to read it. I'll choose my other books when I do my intro post for each.
