  1. Update #5: I guess this is becoming an update once a month challenge for me, not from lack of progress, but time. (I'm resolved to changing that in these last two months of challenge; catching up on updates is a whole day activity now.) Since my last update in November, I’ve completed Celeste, Miles Morales (for those holiday feels), and made some significant progress in Skyrim, platinuming it just last night. Most of my free time in December was spent starting - and subsequently floundering through - my first FromSoft game: Bloodborne. I’m not a skilled gamer by any means, and I’ve always been deterred by difficulty, but I cannot put this game down! I may regret this immeasurably, but I want to add it to my list, swapping it out with inFamous. Honestly, if I can 100% this game before the end of the challenge, I’ll be ecstatic. Red = Haven’t started Green = Some progress Blue = Completed 100% Assassins Creed Origins Astro's Playroom [SWAP] Bloodborne - 35% Celeste Dragon Age II - 91% Fallout New Vegas Far Cry 3: Classic Edition Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon God of War Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS4) Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Skyrim (PS5) - 11% ➡️ 76% Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition The Sims 3 Undertale Swaps (3/5)
  2. Happy to have my first platinum down for the event! Luckily, I only needed a couple of days to clean up some misc side quests, the dark brotherhood quest line, and find all daedric artifacts. Oh, and get married to Lydia for the tenth time. I never understood the difficulty rating for this game, but I also never venture away from dominating as an OP stealth archer so.. 1/10 - Virginia (PlatPrices) 2/10 - Life Is Strange 2 (PSNP) 3/10 - Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy (PSNP) 4/10 - Dragon Age II (PSNP) 5/10 - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PSNP) 6/10 - The Last Of Us Remastered (PlatPrices) 7/10 - Mass Effect: Andromeda (PlatPrices) 8/10 - Bloodborne (PSNP) 9/10 - Back 4 Blood (PSNP) 10/10 - Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout (PSNP)
  3. Haven't posted in a while, but I've made a bit of progress and wanted to update! Do Something Nice Day (Oct. 5) - Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Do Something Nice Day is about performing acts of service for strangers and loved ones in hopes of making the world a little better. Spider-Man not only embodies this holiday by always being kind when faced with adversity, the side missions in this game have Miles Morales doing good deeds for his NYC neighbors. Wright Brothers Day (Dec. 17) - Celeste Let’s celebrate Wright Brothers Day with a 2D platformer that utilizes flight - really extended dashing - as the main tool for overcoming obstacles and completing levels. Dongzhi Festival (Holiday celebrated in Asia) - Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition The Dongzhi Festival is centered around the yin and yang philosophy and finding balance and harmony in everyday life. Sleeping Dogs is about an undercover cop who has to manage his desire to follow the law and need to infiltrate Hong Kong’s toughest triad. A key struggle for the protagonist Wei Shen is finding the balance between both lives. I should be able to cross off a couple more games before the end of the event, but sadly, I won't be able to complete the whole board, like I'd hoped.
  4. This event works well with the other ones I'm participating in, so I'd love to join. I'll probably change a few around as the year progresses, but my tentative list is as follows: ❎ 1/10 - Virginia (PlatPrices) ❎ 2/10 - Life Is Strange 2 (PSNP) ❎ 3/10 - Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy (PSNP) ❎ 4/10 - Dragon Age II (PSNP) ❎ 5/10 - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PSNP) ❎ 6/10 - The Last Of Us Remastered (PlatPrices) ❎ 7/10 - Mass Effect: Andromeda (PlatPrices) ❎ 8/10 - Bloodborne (PSNP) ❎ 9/10 - Back 4 Blood (PSNP) ❎ 10/10 - Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout (PSNP)
  5. Super late with this update but I wanted to thank @Squirlruler and @kingofbattle8174 for compiling the data and hosting this event, and to this forum as a whole for motivating me all of 2021. I wouldn't have made near as much progress without reading y'all's updates. Personally, I ended up completing all of my gaming goals* for the year (except for staying under 4000 unearned trophies; I dipped below it near the end of the year and then started Skyrim 😬). Congrats to everyone who achieved their goals, made a dent in their backlog, and/ or had fun participating in this event!
  6. This event is right up my alley! I'd love to join and get creative with the games I play this upcoming year. No list planned yet, but I'll be working on it as I go along. Happy New Years everyone!
  7. Final (and first) update for this event! I promise I wasn't slacking on the DLC, just on the updating about it. I ended up completing 10 DLC packs. Assassin’s Creed Origins (The Hidden Ones; Discovery Tour; The Curse of the Pharaohs) Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition (Nightmare in North Point; Year of the Snake) Dragon Age II (The Exiled Prince; Legacy; Mark of the Assassin) Skyrim [PS4] (Dawnguard) Skyrim [PS5] (Hearthfire) Thanks for hosting the event! I have plenty of DLC to work on for the next one (fingers crossed*)
  8. Happy New Years everyone! I'd love to join the event again this year. Current: 58.61% Goal: 65%
  9. Update #4: It’s been more than a month since my last update (I keep thinking, “I’ll update when I’ve made a bit more progress in one more game”, repeatedly, ad infinitum). Within that time I’ve completed four games from my backlog: Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition. Thankfully, I enjoyed my time with each game, albeit Origins became a grind near the end. I’ve also completed the majority of Dragon Age II, only needing a second, Templar playthrough to 100% it. I’ve decided to use my first swap on Darksiders, replacing it with Celeste; I thought it best to finally use my PSNow subscription on a game I’ve been eying for months. And with the free PS5 upgrade, I’d love to swap out Nexoman: Extinction for Skyrim. Spending the winter meandering through Skyrim seems like one of my better ideas. Red = Haven’t started Green = Some progress Blue = Completed 100% Assassins Creed Origins Astro's Playroom [SWAP] Celeste Dragon Age II - 20% ➡️ 91% Fallout New Vegas Far Cry 3: Classic Edition Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon God of War inFamous - 24% Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS4) Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart [SWAP] Skyrim (PS5) - 11% Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition The Sims 3 Undertale Swaps (2/5)
  10. October was a productive month for me, completion-wise. I completed a few new games from the Fall/ Winter backlog challenge and went back to several others that needed a quick clean-up. Although it doesn’t increase my percentage by much, there’s nothing quite like spending two days earning the last trophy in a game I haven’t touched in years. (I needed to kill a Legendary dragon in Skyrim and had to grind out the last 5 or so levels to make a high-level dragon appear. Thank the forums for some great grinding tips!) With just two months left in the challenge, I think I’ll aim to end the year at an even 60% completion. Thanks for the update as always @Squirlruler!
  11. I was trying to complete this before Nov. 1, but I needed a couple DLC trophies still. Glad to have the plat/ 100% now though. Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition • NA All 60 Trophies 1st November 2021 • Completed in 5 years, 1 week
  12. Final Update It’s been a great year for PS3 backlog games. This event motivated me to revisit a handful of my favorite games ever. And even though I didn’t make as much overall progress as I initially wanted, I completed 11 games total and made progress in 3 others. I definitely plan to continue working on my PS3 backlog, and have a few games planned for upcoming milestones. Thanks for hosting @SpaceCoresDad ; it’s been fun!
  13. Another orange down
  14. Another three down. World Freedom Day (Nov. 9) - Assassin’s Creed Origins World Freedom Day is a U.S. holiday created by President George W. Bush to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall. AC Origins fits with the holiday’s overall theme with its heavy emphasis on the liberation of “the people” from the ever-present, conspiratorial Order of the Ancients. Dress Up Your Pet Day (Jan. 14) - Scheming Through The Zombie Apocalypse: The Beginning What better way to observe Dress Up Your Pet Day than with a quick (but not too quick) Ratalaika game starring a politically-incorrect rabbit and drug-dealing dog? National Science Fiction Day (Holiday celebrated in my country) - Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart celebrates National Science Fiction Day with its inclusion of parallel dimensions, intergalactic space travel, and worlds inhabited by E.T.s and cognizant robots.
  15. Wanted to submit this for Orange before the plat rarity is >80%. (Sorry for double posting!)
  16. Finally on the board with a Pink
  17. Assassin's Creed Origins All 68 Trophies 18th October 2021 • Completed in 3 years, 3 months The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim All 76 Trophies 23rd October 2021 • Completed in 4 years, 11 months
  18. I'm actively working on a couple of games with DLC, so I'd love to join. Thanks for hosting!
  19. Cook Something Bold And Pungent Day (Nov. 8) - Overcooked! All You Can Eat Pretty self-explanatory with this one. Overcooked! All You Can Eat has players teaming up to cook, bake, and combine a bunch of recipes, some of which can be considered bold or pungent to the less adventurous eaters out there. National Fossil Day (Oct. 13) - Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon National Fossil Day is a federally (US) recognized holiday celebrating all things fossils. Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon has quite a few fossils to be found, especially when on the hunt for collectibles. They’re mostly in subterranean caves scattered across the map.
  20. Thanks for the vote of confidence @ladynadiad! It's a bit easier to meet my goals while my overall completion is still this low. But I definitely think the temptation to play new releases (especially Back 4 Blood) make this challenging. Congrats on all your personal progress though! I admire all the work you've put into keeping your completion percentage high, and your harrowing experience with Shiness.
  21. International Day For The Abolition Of Slavery (Dec. 2) - Far Cry 3: Classic Edition The International Day for the Abolition of Slavery is an annual holiday recognized by the United Nations in 1986, and celebrated every December 2nd. Observers use this day to commemorate the global struggle against slavery and its abolition. Far Cry 3: Classic Edition can be tied to this holiday due to its villains’ direct connection to human trafficking and slavery. There are quite a few moments where the protagonist - Jason Brody - literally saves prisoners sold as slaves. One of the main villains even boasts about his global enterprise of human and drug trafficking that is subsequently thwarted by a vengeful Brody. I think liberating 34 outposts littered with slavers and taking down an evil oppressor of innocent islanders is a fantastic way to observe this holiday. As for the other dates, I haven’t concretely decided what I’ll be playing for each and will submit them as I go.
  22. Thanks for end of month update @Squirlruler! Glad to report I managed to reach my 2021 goal this month! I played through a bunch of games this month, mostly due to National Trophy Hunting Day. It was my first time participating, and I wanted to earn 100+ trophies. I also 100% a few other games from my backlog, including Astro’s Playroom, Far Cry 3: Classic Edition, and Fallout: New Vegas. I’m slowly working through Ghost of Tsushima’s Legends DLC and close to completing Overcooked! All You Can Eat. With three months left in 2021, I’m hoping to end with a clean 10% completion increase overall (57.41%). As long as I continue to work on my backlog, this new goal should be doable.
  23. Update #3: In the couple of weeks since my last update, I’ve completed Astro’s Playroom and Far Cry 3: Classic Edition. I’m sure most know how brilliant both are respectively, and I’d prefer not to go on about them ad nauseum. I will say, as someone who doesn’t use the DuelSense’s adaptive triggers due to sensitivity reasons, Astro’s Playroom is worth experiencing as intended. Next up: Blood Dragon (another classic I’ve somehow skipped). Red = Haven’t started Green = Some progress Blue = Completed 100% Assassins Creed Origins - 31% Astro's Playroom Dragon Age II - 20% Darksiders Warmastered Edition - 7% Fallout New Vegas Far Cry 3: Classic Edition Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon God of War inFamous - 24% Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS4) Nexomon: Extinction Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition - 33% The Sims 3 Undertale Swaps (0/5)
  24. Far Cry 3: Classic Edition All 44 Trophies 29th September 2021 • Platinum in 3 years, 4 months
  25. Count me in! I'm at a loss at what to do for quite a few of these dates, but at least I get a free space for November 31.
