  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Total Trophies (so far): 110

     

    Far Cry 3 Classic Edition - 1

    Overcooked All You Can Eat - 7

    My Name Is Mayo - 51

    My Name Is Mayo 2 - 51

     

    Hopefully I have some time to knock out a few more Overcooked trophies before the event ends. If I'm done with errands early today, I'll be working through Astro's Playroom too. Happy National Trophy Hunting Day!

  7. Update #7


    With only a month and a half left until the event is over, I’m happy to report I’ve completed two more games, and made progress in a couple others. I finished Rain and Fallout: New Vegas, spending more than 77 hours in the latter. I didn’t 100% the game as efficiently as possible, but spent a considerable amount of time meandering through the mojave and exploring the DLC, three of which were new to me. Despite the countless crashes and frame drops, the game still stands as one of the best in my opinion. I also picked up Sonic Generations again, but playing it on PSNow makes it more difficult than it needs to be, so I’ll probably skip it altogether. Instead, I’ll use the remaining time to either work on Dragon Age II or inFamous

    I didn’t make as much percentage progress as I initially wanted in August. I started the month strong, finishing up Mass Effect: Legendary Edition and PvZ: Battle for Neighborville. The latter had been looming over my list for nearly two years. I also attempted to work on Sonic Generations, a game my partner started on PSNow years before my trophy hunting began. I swiftly gave up on it; Sonic just isn’t my jam, especially with how janky it is while streaming. What really tanked my progress - albeit I’m still positive this month - was starting two trophy list behemoths: Fallout: New Vegas and Ghost of Tsushima. I plan to continue both of those games this month, and hopefully reach my completion goal before the end of September. As always, thanks for the data and update every month @Squirlruler
