  1. 0 - LEGO Batman 3 Iris.Fall - 1 - Broken Age - 2 - Destroy All Humans - 3 - Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life - 4 - Kentucky Route Zero Borderlands 2 Resident Evil 6 (PS3) - 5 - Dishonored: Definitive Edition - 6 - The Sinking City - 0% 7 - GTA V (PS4) - 8 - Dark Cloud 2 - 9 - Transistor - Penultimate update! And this is a fun one. So, at first I wanted to play LEGO Batman 3, but my second controller was busted and I always play LEGO games with a partner. And I was SCOURING my library for a game that could fill the slot, but it was all just very easy puzzle games. So Iris.Fall it was. A whimsical, interesting little puzzler that was definitely worth the two dollars or so I spent on it. Broken Age came next, which was a very enjoyable adventure game. VERY reminiscent of the old LucasArts point and click games I grew up with. Extremely heart-warming and at times genuinely hilarious. So... what happened with number 4? Well. As I was getting back into Kentucky Route Zero I noticed that it is NOT in fact a 4 game. It's a 0 game. Which I could've used to fill the 0 slot in the first place! Turns out, I'd been looking at the European version when compiling my list. No big deal, right? I've got another 5 game to fill the slot. I guess I'll go way back to Borderlands 2 even though I really didn't like Borderlands, just so I can have something of substance to fill the slot. Oh, what's that? Borderlands 2 is a 5 game?! So, somewhere along the road my brain thought I needed a 5 game, not a 4 game. Right as I was getting REALLY close 100%. Well, at least I have some kind of... extra platinum? Well, I scoured and scoured for another 4 game to fill the slot. Turns out, I had quite a few but they were all PS3 games. And it also turns out, some of those were available on PS Now. So, to Playstation Now I went and played far too much of Resident Evil 6. I actually REALLY enjoyed it! Which is a far different opinion of when I first played it nearly ten years ago but a lot's happened in those ten years. And what better game to play during a global pandemic than a game about a global pandemic. Near the end of the platinum, though, I was definitely getting a bit burned out. As a service, though, Playstation Now is functional. I never would've gotten that platinum without it. Shame I can't play the DLC which I bought ten years ago, though. Next up is The Sinking City to close me out! I never thought I'd be able to finish, honestly. This'll give me some extra time in August to fiddle around more with my 1-month sub to PS Now. And yes, I double checked and TRIPLE checked to make sure that Sinking City is a 6. PS4 version, no other SKUs to contend with. I'm good! ...hopefully.
  2. 0 - LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (PS4) - 3% 1 - Broken Age - 0% 2 - Destroy All Humans - 3 - Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life - 4 - Kentucky Route Zero TV Edition - 0% 5 - Dishonored: Definitive Edition - 6 - The Sinking City - 0% 7 - GTA V (PS4) - 8 - Dark Cloud 2 - 9 - Transistor - I finished my Transistor platinum so quickly that I went ahead and finished Destroy All Humans (PS2) before posting an update. I kind of became super obsessed with Transistor despite never finishing the platinum after my first playthrough years ago. I was actually really bummed with how short it was. Destroy All Humans was fine, dumb fun. Very much a product of its time. Still super janky, but an easy platinum if you don't mind collectables. I just started Kentucky Route Zero TV Edition today which I kind of LOVE? This is the kind of game that sneaks its way into my favorite games of a generation. Only finished with Act 1 so far, but I have a feeling this one's going to totally wreck me.
  3. 0 - LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (PS4) - 3% 1 - Broken Age - 0% 2 - Destroy All Humans - 0% 3 - Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life - 4 - Kentucky Route Zero TV Edition - 0% 5 - Dishonored: Definitive Edition - 6 - The Sinking City - 0% 7 - GTA V (PS4) - 8 - Dark Cloud 2 - 9 - Transistor - 21% Dishonored: Definitive Edition platinum down! I'll save the DLC for later, 'cause I'm not even half way done yet, oof. I really came around strongly on this game. It definitely made me want to play the other two entries in the franchise, even though it seems like it'll be a long wait for the next. Really good style, fun powers, stealth that didn't feel like a chore. My only big complaint is that the main protagonist doesn't seem to have much of a personality. He is just 'The Guy'. Or in this case 'The Lackey Who Is Extremely Powerful But Too Dumb For His Own Good'. Next up is Transistor which I actually played through once already. @Grotz99 and @gruffiiti recommended I at least go for this one. I remember loving it my first time through, I don't know why I didn't go back to get the platinum sooner. Red's a really cool protag and I can't wait to hear that absolutely killer soundtrack again. This'll at least be a quick one, I think.
  4. 0 - LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (PS4) - 3% 1 - Broken Age - 0% 2 - Destroy All Humans - 0% 3 - Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life - 4 - Kentucky Route Zero TV Edition - 0% 5 - Dishonored: Definitive Edition - 7% 6 - The Sinking City - 0% 7 - GTA V (PS4) - 8 - Dark Cloud 2 - 9 - Transistor - 21% Completed my Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life platinum! Of all the Harvest Moons, this might be my second favorite after Friends of Mineral Town (which is coming to PS4 sometime this year also) but it's really showing its age. After spending hundreds of hours with Stardew Valley, I felt this started VERY slowly. Still, it was a very chill time. There are plenty of missable trophies and there's not a WHOLE lot of information out there, but I managed getting there just fine. Definitely had a great time. Up next is Dishonored Definitive Edition which has been sitting in my profile for several years. I'm starting to get worried that I may not finish in time and might have to make some last minute adjustments. But we'll see!
  5. 0 - 3140 - LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (PS4) - 3% 1 - 3531 - Broken Age - 0% 2 - 5482 - Destroy All Humans - 0% 3 - 5973 - Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life - 0% 4 - 10284 - Kentucky Route Zero TV Edition - 0% 5 - 3805 - Dishonored: Definitive Edition - 7% 6 - 9216 - The Sinking City - 0% 7 - GTA V (PS4) - 8 - 4218 - Dark Cloud 2 - 9 - 2619 - Transistor - 21% Finished the platinum on GTA V! I've done this before on the PS3 and I already had done a bit of progress about five years ago before picking it back up for this event. I can't tell you how much I look forward to never playing a GTA again until 6. It's a gorgeous game, but really not my thing. There was a certain novelty to the PS2 games I'd played recently, but there's nothing really joyful about this one. I may go back and get the Editor DLC trophies and maybe delve into the Heists, but I have almost no desire to. Next is Harvest Moon AWL because I feel like I desperately need a wholesome farming game right now. I've already started and I'm a liiiittle anxious about all the missables, but I think it'll be a delight! Can't wait to enjoy a couple of weeks on Stardew Farm.
  6. It is absolutely maddening. Some dungeons have walls, though, so some levels are easier to clear it with. But others are SO frustrating. It took a lot of trial and error, ugh.
  7. 0 - 3140 - LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (PS4) - 3% 1 - 3531 - Broken Age - 0% 2 - 5482 - Destroy All Humans - 0% 3 - 5973 - Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life - 0% 4 - 10284 - Kentucky Route Zero TV Edition - 0% 5 - 3805 - Dishonored: Definitive Edition - 7% 6 - 9216 - The Sinking City - 0% 7 - 3147 - GTA V (PS4) - 50% 8 - 4218 - Dark Cloud 2 - 9 - 2619 - Transistor - 21% Just finished up with the final grind in Dark Cloud 2! This is a game that's been sitting in my unfinished list for coming up on five years now. At the time, I just couldn't focus on the game and found that keeping track of all the missable trophies was a real drag. But after more than 100 hours, I can finally hang up this ancient PS2 relic. It was a fun, wholesome little romp. Some frustrating moments, but otherwise I had a good, chill time with it. I'm moving on to GTA V which is my other big chunk of this list. Definitely not going for the big Heist DLC trophies, so I'm glad I can just get the platinum and call it square. My time playing the PS2 games recently wasn't very pleasant. I'd say I had the most fun with San Andreas but even still, oof. Different time.
  8. Need for Speed: Most Wanted is down! One plat on the board. Next up: LEGO Batman 2.
  9. I've finished! The Missing: JJ MacField and the Island of Memories deals with a lot of difficult themes revolving around suicide. The game even starts off with a content warning about these depictions, which I appreciated. Also, a lot of these themes are fairly spoiler-heavy, so I’ll hide my thoughts. I’m not generally a fan of stories that portray trans suffering - for obvious reasons - but the story they’ve told here is a fairly accurate one. The majority of the game’s story is told through text messages that JJ has received in the past. The characters here are very well-realized. Perhaps the most accurate is the traditional mother, who eventually comes across JJ’s diary and sends her a text saying ““I found out about your secret. Please go to the counselor with me, Jackie. I’m sure that your mind is just a little unstable. We’ll get you back to normal in no time.” Ultimately, it’s a story that shows us how swiftly and powerfully mental illnesses can develop in a trans individual while they are going through their transition. Especially with the pressures of school, expectations from friends, and a constant, overbearing presence of family, it can make the process unimaginably stressful on the mind. Bonus Badge! For #YouAreNotAlone I completed the co-op trophies for The Forest and got my platinum. Not much to report here as it was fairly painless! Thank you very much for creating this event and thank you everyone for participating.
  10. Heck YES. This was my favorite event and I'm so bummed that I missed it last year. I've even already put together my list: 0 - 3140 - LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (PS4) - 3% 1 - 3531 - Broken Age - 0% 2 - 5482 - Destroy All Humans - 0% 3 - 5973 - Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life - 0% 4 - 10284 - Kentucky Route Zero TV Edition - 0% 5 - 3805 - Dishonored: Definitive Edition - 7% 6 - 9216 - The Sinking City - 0% 7 - 3147 - GTA V (PS4) - 50% 8 - 4218 - Dark Cloud 2 - 22% 9 - 2619 - Transistor - 21% This miiight be me biting off more than I can chew, but it'll be fun to try. Some notes: I've sort of being doing a GTA retrospective, so finishing up GTA V seems to make sense going into June. And with playing all those PS2 games, I've added some in here, especially Harvest Moon. I need a chill farming sim in between all this chaos. And Destroy All Humans is the PS2 port rather than the original. Best of luck, everyone! Thank you for setting up this cool event!
  11. I feel like I should be insulted by this list. I played a LOT of the original two games and this slap-dash cash grab off the hype of the remake just feels sloppy and cheap. No way this is a $30 purchase.
  12. Oh I'm so in for this. I just bought a new charging cable for my little Life boi and have already started ripping through my backlog. Starting with Need for Speed Most Wanted and I'll go from there! Maybe I'll actually get my Soul Sacrifice platinum. Or see how many people actually want to play a bunch of Silent Hill Book of Memories. 😬 One of the few games I've regretted starting.
  13. What an amazing event, thank you. I'd like to partake. I'm going to pick The Missing: JJ Macfield and the Island of Memories. I know very little about this game except that it deals with mental health issues while also centering around a trans queer protagonist. As a trans queer with mental health conditions, I figure it's finally time to dig this out of my backlog and it seems perfect for this event. As for the #YouAreNotAlone bonus badge, I may finally go back to finish the cooperative trophies for The Forest. Not as deeply meaningful as The Missing, but cooperative trophies (sometimes moreso than competitive trophies) always pull me out of my comfort zone and it'll be nice to have that platinum. I've been disabled with mental illnesses for some time now. Severe depressive psychosis, GAD, panic disorder, PTSD, and ADHD. They're one hell of a hurdle to get through on a day to day basis and I've struggled to adapt new routines to combat them. However, just like any other illness, I don't let them define me. It's okay to talk about it, it's okay to ask for help, and it's okay to reach out to those closest to you who might be struggling too. I've dealt with the stigma for years and it can be exhausting. I think the most important thing anyone can take from this event is that, yes, you are not alone.
  14. Okay! My first and only update, whoops. It was a good run and I tried my darnedest, but there's no way I'm gonna be able to finish the DLC on some of these games. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Batman: The Telltale Series Control - but all DLC not purchased Dragon Quest XI Erica Full Throttle Remastered Gris Here They Lie I <=> Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice + Yoku's Island Express J <=> Dragon Quest Builders 2 Knack LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Middle-Earth: Shadow of War - but some DLC incomplete Never Alone Observation Psycho-Pass Mandatory Happiness Q.U.B.E. Director’s Cut Resident Evil 2 - but some DLC incomplete Shadow of the Tomb Raider The Unfinished Swan Uncanny Valley V <=> Burly Men at Sea + The Sims 4 W <=> Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered + Shenmue III but all DLC not purchased Xeodrifter Yakuza 0 Z <=> Moonlighter but all DLC not purchased + Stranger Things 3: The Game I'm amazed I did as well as I did, to be honest. Some of these I'll probably try completing somewhere down the road. I honestly don't even want to look at Shadow of War anymore and Resident Evil 2's DLC was just a little too difficult for me. Some of these I'll probably purchase the DLC for later (Control yes please) while some absolutely not (looking at you, Shenmue 3). Even still, this event pushed me to complete more games than I normally set out to do, so thank you for helping me trim out my backlog so much! 😀 Game of the Event - Control Tough call split between this and Yakuza 0, but this held the biggest impact on me. Feels like a cheap vote considering I didn't buy the DLC, but this was absolutely the best of the bunch. I loved everything about it and I'm looking forward to more once I can afford it. Game I Never Would've Completed Otherwise - Knack This was the biggest slog. It's a weirdly iconic game that I bought for five bucks at some point. But wow, I can't think of a bigger 'Nothing' game. Not charming, not fun, just a 40-ish hour chore. Worst Game of the Event - Psycho-Pass Mandatory Happiness Sorry, anime fans. As boring as Knack (and Shenmue 3) was, the worst thing a visual novel can do is make me disinterested and boy howdy there was nothing doing it here for me. Lots of pressing X while watching Netflix.
  15. oh NO I just realized that I swapped LEGO Force Awakens with Moonlighter and I have NO idea why. Silly brain. As it turns out, I went through LEGO Force Awakens instead of Moonlighter. OOF. Otherwise, a good run at knocking out a good chunk of my backlog even with Animal Crossing eating up most of my time. See y'all for Summer! Edit: I just realized I can swap games AFTER the event started. WHEW. Hopefully this is okay! Assassin's Creed Odyssey Batman: The Telltale Series Dragon Quest Builders 2 Erica Full Throttle Remastered Gris Here They Lie 💯 Hellblade Yoku's Island Express LEGO Force Awakens Bonuses: Xeodrifter 💯 Assassin's Creed Odyssey definitely took the most time. There's so much going on in that game and at some point it just gets so repetitive. It felt like a chore wrapping everything up. Gris may have been my favorite of the bunch. Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice definitely portrays mental illness in a realistic fashion but Gris was a much more enjoyable experience. Both are visually stunning but I feel like I remember more of the set pieces from Gris. Dragon Quest Builders 2 was very fun, but oddly I remember enjoying the first one much more and I'm not sure why. Everything else was pretty hit and miss. Erica was an enjoyable FMV adventure, though. Just seeing a LOT of it over and over again while going for the platinum was a bit jarring.
