  1. I finished Mecho Tales, which I had a surprising amount of fun with. Brings my total up to 4/10. I'd also like to use my 1 pyramid swap: Tales of Xillia 2 comes out for Overcooked 2. It's all my wife and I are playing now, and it's likely to be plat #100 for me (contrary to my original target of God of War PS3, but marriage is about compromise sometimes 😊). We're far enough along that I'm pretty sure we can platinum it. Pyramid now looks like: Ultra Rare: Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero (Vita) <-- need motivation to get through that DLC Very Rare: Tales of Xillia, Overcooked 2 Rare: God of War Ascension, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon (Vita), Uncanny Valley (Vita) Common/Uncommon: God of War (PS3), Cosmic Star Heroine (Vita), Mecho Tales (Vita), Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden Next completions are likely to be Overcooked 2, God of War Ascension, and Abyss in some order.
  2. Cool - thanks for the feedback! My bad on Momodora and I see your concerns on Aegis Defenders. I do think Dead Cells and Chasm fit better given gameplay videos that I've seen, but I do see your concerns. In terms of other game suggestions, I would also throw out: Forma.8 Unepic (I think this has been suggested by someone else in this thread before) Looking forward to what you come up with for the PP ranks!
  3. Great work! Just one left for that Platinum rank and I see you've already started. Good luck! Ok! You've been added as Sylph. Welcome!
  4. Yes you can! Welcome Ex-Fireman!
  5. With the huge impending influx of Metroidvania, it's going to be hard to not make this PP absolutely massive, so I have a few ideas. Sorry for the long post in advance! Idea 1: Sci-Fi and Fantasy Quick glance at what this could look like below. Bolded games are not in the PP or not released but would make sense. I've listed only games with plats below. I've basically defined sci-fi as robots/lasers guns (I think what is "sci-fi" can be roughly agreed upon) while fantasy would be everything else. Sci-Fi (9) Aegis Defenders Axiom Verge Dead Cells Headlander Rabi-Ribi Shadow Complex Mastered Strider Teslagrad Timespinner Fantasy (15) Apotheon Chasm Dust Guacamelee Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition Guacamelee 2 Heart Forth, Alicia Odin Sphere Leifthrasir Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight The Mummy Demastered Salt & Sanctuary Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Shantae: Half Genie Hero Sundered Yoku's Island Express The benefits to this approach: - The game list gets split roughly 1/3-2/3, which isn't so bad since we were never going to be able to cut it 50-50. One 10 game PP and one 15 game PP both seem manageable. - Fantasy can probably be subdivided again if it becomes too big since it's such a broad category. But right now it isn't particular obvious how to me. The cons are: - There are so many metroidvanias being released, there's a good chance these would have to be subdivided again. Could end up being a lot of work. Idea 2: Super Plat Rank An idea inspired by the Shonen Jump PP in its previous iteration, which you can find here. Current PPs have 5 ranks: hidden, bronze, silver, gold, platinum. The original Shonen Jump PP (since it was also massive) created 4 more ranks: plat+bronze, plat+silver, plat+gold, super plat. So for example, let's say our PP has 30 games. Under the current system, we could say that rank requirements are 0 plats, 7 plats, 15 plats, 22 plats, 30 plats. Moving up a rank requires getting 7 plats, which is a lot and demotivating. Under the 9-rank system, you could do: 0 plats, 4 plats, 8 plats, 12 plats, 16 plats, 20 plats, 24 plats, 28 plats, 30 plats. This is a far more manageable 4 plats per person. Pros of this approach: - You don't have to split up this PP, which would be a lot of work. - This approach is scalable - if somehow this gets to 100 games, you can just add more layers of 4 ranks. - People will be more motivated to move up the ranks due to the better sense of progression. Getting a nicer emblem after 4 plats feels better than 7 plats in the example above. For example, I have 8 plats in this PP now, but getting to that platinum rank at 14 plats and knowing that many more games are going to be added just feels like a lot. Cons: - People will have to keep track of a huge number of games for a single PP, but presumably those of us who are still active in this thread are doing this anyway.
  6. Welcome! You've been added as Efreet. Congratulations on the upgrade! You're so close to Symphonia! Woohoo! Congratulations on the upgrade! I think I'll let everyone keep their emblems :). I will accept either the Japanese or English versions of any of the games so you'll get a +1 to your games completed when Vesperia is released. Alright, you've been added! Abyss was one of my favorites when I played on PS2 - a small part of me is holding out hope for a remaster onto one of the Sony platforms with trophies.
  7. Alright, I like this new Challenge Gate and Hub system. All my Shonen Jump plats were Naruto games anyway, so I'll post here instead of at the Hub. I'm a Chunin with 2 Naruto plats: Ninja Storm 2 and Ninja Storm Generations. I'll be back for my Tokubetsu Jonin upgrade in a bit!
  8. Got through Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon and Uncanny Valley while on vacation these past few weeks. 3 games down! Updated pyramid for me below. Ultra Rare: Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero (Vita) <-- need motivation to get through that DLC Very Rare: Tales of Xillia, Tales of Xillia 2 Rare: God of War Ascension, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon (Vita), Uncanny Valley (Vita) Common/Uncommon: God of War (PS3), Cosmic Star Heroine (Vita), Mecho Tales (Vita), Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden Currently working on: God of War Ascension Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero Uncanny Valley wasn't really my cup of tea largely due to its gameplay mechanics. Glad to have it knocked off the list. Curse of the Moon was great. Loved the boss fights and the old school feel of the game, but 6 playthroughs to get that 100% was a bit much even if each of the playthroughs was short. I'm trying to make PS3 God of War my 100th plat and I'm traveling for a bit, so progress might slow down, but I feel motivated! Thanks for putting this event together.
  9. Welcome guys! You've all been added. I'm loving the spurt of activity this thread has been seeing today :).
  10. Thanks for adding me so quickly, sundrew!  :D

  11. Welcome Sylph! You've been added! I'm loving the nearly 100% JRPG profile.
  12. Ok, I've finished Cosmic Star Heroine! Had a lot of fun with it despite the occasional bug. Thanks for putting this event together - I'm seeing some progress already! Updated pyramid progress: Ultra Rare: Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero (Vita) Very Rare: Tales of Xillia, Tales of Xillia 2 Rare: God of War Ascension, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon (Vita), Uncanny Valley (Vita) Common/Uncommon: God of War (PS3), Cosmic Star Heroine (Vita), Mecho Tales (Vita), Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden What are the deadlines/your updated thoughts on the Halloween pyramid? I think it'd be fun to run through two pyramids at the same time and I've got a huge backlog of shorter games that would work great. And do the games in the Halloween pyramid have to follow any kind of theme?
  13. Hello! I'm up to 4 games completed so rank me up from Carnival Visitor to Glasses Companion! I've got: 1. Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink 2. Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek 3. Eventide: Slavic Fable 4. Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart
  14. Ok, I'm in! I think this will be great motivation to finish up some games in my backlog - my pyramid is below. Thanks for organizing this! Ultra Rare: Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero (Vita) <-- need motivation to get through that DLC Very Rare: Tales of Xillia, Tales of Xillia 2 Rare: God of War Ascension, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon (Vita), Uncanny Valley (Vita) Common/Uncommon: God of War (PS3), Cosmic Star Heroine (Vita), Mecho Tales (Vita), Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden Currently working on: God of War Ascension Cosmic Star Heroine Edit: Made some changes to the game list!
  15. Well that was fast! Congratulations on being the first Revolutionary! Well deserved!! I'm glad you enjoyed the game. I remember first playing it on PC when it originally came out (I want to say around 15 years ago?) and being completely wow'ed by it. I played it again on PS3 many years later and it still holds up pretty well. Totally agree on the wonky camera and stealth - my least favorite portions - but hopefully they can do something great with BG&E2. Your plat rank will be safe for a while since I don't think any games are coming out for the series on here for some time (BG&E2 is supposedly end-2019 or early 2020?). Congrats again!
