  1. Final update PS3 Steins Gate: 1% (1/42 Trophies) Mass Effect: 0% (0/47 Trophies) PS4 Bioshock 2: 0% (0/54 trophies) 2% 34% 36% (24/54 Trophies) Horizon Zero Dawn: 28% (28/79 Trophies) Dauntless: 23% (4/9 Trophies) LEGO Harry Potter Collection: Years 1-4: 15% (8/37 Trophies) The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt: 3% (3/79 Trophies) Well this challenge has been quite a disaster for me tbh. An initial lack of focus on my listed games and an extreme lack of time (suprisingly enough considering the circumstances) has left me with a whopping 0/7 games completed (insert applause noise). Partly I have myself to blame since I played a bunch of non-listed games at the start of the challenge, but for the last month or so I just really didn't have the time to even boot up my console anymore untill today (played a hat in time for like half an hour because I simply couldn't resist it anymore) School has just been absolutely crazy lately and I really underestimated how difficult and time consuming having to learn and study everything all by yourself can actually be. Guess I'll never complain again about having to go to my lectures in the future ^^ I'm not really sure if I will be able to join the summer event this time around for this very same reason. Exams are starting next week and I feel like joining the event will only result in me failing to fully focus on either of these things. In a choice like this, the decision is unfortunately made rather quickly. There is nothing to say that I won't be joining in halfway through after my exams though and I will definitely be reading all of your updates even if I'm not participating myself, they are often such a joy to go through, especially during times like this. Good luck everyone, see you soon!
  2. In my experience, combining one gun with epic tier 3 engineer is actually the best choice since it makes the run a lot easier. Since you don't have to buy the other weapons (which are expensive) and you can sell all the ammo you can't use (the game will still drop a lot of ammo other than plasma energy for you regardless whether you have bought the other guns or not), you'll soon be swimming in credits and you also have to buy way less nodes when upgrading just 1 gun compared to when you would use 3 or 4. The very first chapter is the only time you'll really have to watch your ammo since you'll only have access to a store at the end but that's an issue on every playthrough. A fully upgraded plasma cutter is just easily the best weapon in the game anyway since its extremely fast and easy to handle. You can also just pretty much spam with it since ammo and money really isn't going to be an issue when doing one gun, even on impossible. I found my run on impossible to be a lot easier compared to hard where I was always pretty short on money and ammo and healing items. When doing one gun, you'll reach a point where you won't even bother about pickups anymore because you simply have enough. So yeah I just highly recommend to combine one gun and epic tier 3 engineer if you want an easier experience, otherwise if you prefer a challenge, buy and use the other guns as well since you will have a lot more trouble havind enough ammo and money that way.
  3. Update #3 Color code PS3 Steins Gate: 1% (1/42 Trophies) Mass Effect: 0% (0/47 Trophies) PS4 Bioshock 2: 0% (0/54 trophies) 2% 34% 36% (24/54 Trophies) Horizon Zero Dawn: 28% (28/79 Trophies) Dauntless: 23% (4/9 Trophies) LEGO Harry Potter Collection: Years 1-4: 15% (8/37 Trophies) The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt: 3% (3/79 Trophies) Progress since last update: Bioshock 2: 1 (lol) trophy earned (+2%): Nose for News Uhm okay so...kinda embarassed about this update since the progress on my list has been extremely pathetic so far ^^. I don't even really have any excuses in terms of time restrictions anymore nowadays since you know what happened, but even while closed, school still finds a way to suck up a lot of my hours. Guess they don't give up that easily. The main cause of my lack of progress so far, however, has been the fact that I decided to go after some of my other backlog games which I can't or won't add to my list for various reasons: Bioshock Goat Simulator (I know, don't laugh) Lords of the fallen That'll be all for now, again my post turned out to be way bigger than initially intended. I always lose myself in writing these, shame this kind of thing never happens with some of my school assignments ^^. So not much progress on my actual list so far, but I like to think that I'm still working on my backlog a bit by tackling these other games. Helps me sleep at night. Hope everyone here is still doing well so far, definitely keep all the updates coming, it's been a blast to go through them each morning. Something to look forward to everytime!
  4. hmm yeah guess those tweaks do sound like the way to go, I kinda prefered to do it without them honestly but considering how unfair and bs this difficulty really is... Took me at least a couple of hours to get through that (blue) cellar room in chapter 5 of U1 but the jeep section shortly afterwards put the final nail in the coffin for me. I like to be challenged in games but there are limits ^^
  5. How felt brutal in U2 compared to U1 to you? I see you've completed both of them. Since I got way too frustrated with that broken difficulty setting on the first game I haven't bothered trying it out on the other 2 games.
  6. Hi everyone, finally a new update from me, hope all of you and your loved ones are still safe and well! First of all, would you kindly forgive me for my inactivity the past couple of months? School and dealing with the ongoing pandemic left little to no gaming time for me lately. I did, however, finally manage to complete one of my backlog games namely Bioshock (remastered version). I realise I've stated earlier that I wanted to make Horizon Zero Dawn Platinum #50 but I guess I've changed my mind...again. But I have a question for you. Is a man not entitled to freely choose which game will become his 50th platinum? After all, a man chooses, a slave obeys. Bioshock Remastered (PS4) - Platinum (98% complete), Nov 2018 - Apr 2020 [1 years, 5 months] What is there to say about this gem that hasn't been said already, the game is truly a masterpiece, especially considering its age. Is everything perfect though? Not really, the hacking minigame is kinda rigged and only "fun" for a level or two, after that it just starts to become such a nuisance and a giant flowkiller. Same situation with the annoying research mechanic, but I guess these are known common points of critique for the game. Some levels aren't that great either, even though Bioshock has some great level design overall. Medicinal Pavillion, Arcadia and Fort Frolic are some excellent levels for sure but Neptunes Bounty, Hephaestus and Apollo Square can be quite a slug to go through during additional playthroughs but nothing too bad since you can easily speedrun them once you know its layout and important pickups. Overall, the positives definitely outshine the negatives by far! Only thing left for me in order to platinum the game was doing a playthrough on survivor dificulty with vita chambers disabled. This seemed kinda tricky at first untill I realised you can just save the game pretty much whenever you want, which is basically almost the same as playing with vita chambers. This would make the whole challenge of disabling them kinda redundant, which is why I opted to restrict myself to only using the autosaves at the beginning of each level as checkpoints, meaning I had to restart the entire level in case I died. I felt like this was going to backfire really hard but luckily survivor difficulty isn't too bad at all. It's just a bit challenging in the early levels when you have little options available to you, especially when dealing with the big daddies (thank god for explosive containers though). As soon as you unlock the chemical thrower and the crossbow it pretty much becomes impossible to die, enabling you to steamroll the second half of the game, which I found to be the lesser part of it anyway. Overallan easier experience than I initially expected it to be, which was a relief. So finally managed to complete another game from my backlog, not sure what I'm going to tackle next right now. Still pretty busy with RL stuff and I'm probably going to end up doing something else than what I plan to anyway.
  7. Ok thank you all for the feedback! I deleted the emotes out of the second spoiler tag and now they appear to be functional again (for me at least) so that's indeed what seems to be causing the problem. Good to know @GraniteSnake ow yeah btw I still have to do those co-op endurance trophies as well, did the rest of the game during the fall/winter event. Happy to help if you want to finish them up together.

Speaking of which, I have some good and some bad news here, also regarding real life stuff. In case you're interested: So far not been able to make much progress on my list, but given my current situation I'm hoping to get a lot more done during the following weeks. Did a bit more grinding on Dauntless at first but all of my attention is slowly starting to turn exclusively towards Bioshock 2 atm. Halfway through the game right now so I feel like it's a good time to give some initial thoughts on it: Bioshock 2 Good luck everyone and hope y'all stay safe and well. Untill next time!
  9. Interested in this as well. Did it on the PS4 a while ago and it still remains one of my most precious memories of gaming up to date. Would love to help you out with it.
  10. Update #1 PS3 Steins Gate 1% (1/42 Trophies) Mass Effect: 0% (0/47 Trophies) PS4 Horizon Zero Dawn: 28% (28/79 Trophies) Dauntless 23% (4/9 Trophies) LEGO Harry Potter Collection: Years 1-4: 15% (8/37 Trophies) The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt 3% (3/79 Trophies) Bioshock 2: 0% 2% (2/54 Trophies) Games completed: 0/7 Swaps used: 0/2 Got some progress on the board! It doesn't appear to be a whole lot so far trophywise, but for the past week my time has been mostly spent on grinding out some mastery levels in Dauntless. Also played a tiny bit of Bioshock 2 since I really wanted to give it a go for a while now. Little bit of a rundown in case you're interested in my experiences so far: Dauntless Bioshock 2 That'll be it for now, good luck everyone and have fun chasing all of those
  11. Thanks for this, wanted to save about 20 min into B2 but was confronted with this issue. Deleted pretty much half of my save data storage (completed games only so no real issue there) but it still wouldn't let me save. Happy to see I just have to delete some save files from B1 then, I was starting to worry that I had to complete the entire game without saving ^^
  12. Hey everyone, very excited to see this event getting started, looking forward to all of the updates already. This isnt really an update yet though, I just "restyled" my list a bit to make it easier for myself to keep track of everything and I also decided, since the fall/winter challenge has ended, to add 2 more games. I originally planned to complete HZD last month but I got a bit sidetracked by other games...again. That being said, let me actually introduce you to one of those distractions aka my latest addiction: Dauntless! Never expected to like this game as much as I do tbh but I'm afraid that both me and my social life are well beyond saving right now. I just kinda hope that adding it to my list will take away the guilt of not playing HZD from now on ^^ I still want Horizon to be my 50th platinum though, hence why I carried it over to this event. I'm just glad dauntless doesn't have a plat so I can't screw it up. I do realise that completing everything on my list does start to seem pretty unrealistic at this point, but I guess I'll just stick with it for the time being. I'm really looking forward to all of these games and I don't want to remove anything just yet. I'll just try to complete as much as possible and see where that will bring me in the end. My list: Good luck everyone! Let the games begin.

Didn't manage to complete any additional games compared to my last update unfortunately which means I'm clocking out on 13 out of 25 games completed in the end. Definitely feels like I could have done a whole lot better in retrospect but overall I gotta say that I'm pretty happy with what I did manage to get done. Completed some games that were on my profile for way too long now and also some other games for which I just never really did seem to find the right motivation (and actually discovered some real gems while doing so). Events like this are just such a great stimulation for me to actually get some backlog games done. Reporting back on it and reading the progress, successes and/or adversities of everyone else makes this whole experience so much better. A huge thanks to everyone involved in the event and especially to @MidnightDragon for making all of this possible in the first place of course. Onwards to the spring challenge!! Hope to see most of you guys back over there Wanted to close out with some statistics/opinions/awards on my played/completed games during this event: Final ranking of my played/completed games:
  14. Count me in! I'm probably going to regret it but these will be the titles I'll be trying to complete for the challenge. 1) The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (3%) 2) Bioshock 2 (0%) 3) LEGO Harry Potter Collection: Years 1-4 (15%) 4) Mass effect (0%) 5) Steins Gate (1%) Tried to put some variety into my selection this time around which will hopefully help to keep things as interesting as possible throughout the challenge. Already looking forward to it! Good luck everyone!

I really hope they will be graded well but let's get back over to some more important things right now shall we, liky for example my PS backlog list I realise that I was saying in my previous update how much I wanted to get HZD done as my 50th platinum, but I'm afraid I got a bit sidetracked (again). Picked up Dead Space not too long ago and decided to give it a go since it seemed a bit more "controleable" to me in terms of using it as a good studybreak (because one I start playing HZD I'm gone for a couple of hours) but now I found myself unable to stop playing this one either. Therefore I decided to use my very first swap of this challenge right now on which I will be switching out the Prince of Persia game in favour of Dead Space. I'm in love with this game but I'll kinda have to control myself for now since I still want HZD to be my 50th platinum. Let's hope I can still try to get it done before the end of the challenge, about halfway through the game atm so still a lot to do although things should kinda speed up a bit from now on. Wish me luck I guess Wishing you guys lots of it as well. Happy hunting everyone!
