  1. Weekly? Update: Majin: This game was pretty average. It didn't overstay it's welcome, though it does have a little bit of grind to do. Overall, the weakest part was the AI Guardian that is terrible in combat. Also, the bosses were incredibly simple as opposed to some regular late game enemies that are terrible to fight. Overall, I still enjoyed my 18 or so hours I played. Psycho-Pass: 1% Just started Psycho-Pass and wow. This is how you make a good visual novel. Really good writing, interesting characters and an actual plot. The only thing I would say against it is that it's an anime tie-in and doesn't do enough setup on its own.
  2. You got a bunch of the Spec Ops trophies 4 to 7 seconds apart. This is simply impossible.
  3. Weekly Wednesday Wrap-up. Hatoful Boyfriend: 100% As one of the most recognizable visual novels of the last couple of years, this game is a paper-thin gimmick that isn't worth playing. Stories were underdeveloped, characters were one-dimensional and no relation can be created with them as their story paths are about 30 to 40 minutes. The only saving grace for this game was the final story which took a left turn into weird, creepy and interesting, but ultimately was too ridiculous. Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom: 13% I know a couple of folks were curious about this game. As of 35-40% in, this game is perfectly average. Simple, repetitive combat, generic story and decent controls make this a fine but okay experience. It does have good puzzles and could become way better in the second half, but it remains to be seen. That's all I've touched currently (don't play that much these days). Also, in contrast to what other people have said, I will defend Wheels of Aurelia. It might have been a slog to get the platinum trophy, but, as a small indie project, I really liked the characters and story that they told in it.
  4. I don't think I'll be able to fit in a final game today, so here's my final score Apparently, my point goal was too small and I blew past it. I will probably end up in position 5 or 6 judging from some of the absurd scores I saw, but I'm still super proud of the amount of games I was able to clear in a single month. Also I ended up with a number 1 fastest clear time in a game by a whole hour! (Trivial Pursuit Live). All in all, it was a really cool contest and I was glad to be part of it.
  5. A riddle based competition? You peeked my curiosity.
  6. Hum, I think your calculation is wrong. Plat Rarity: 0.64% Time to clear: 350 hours (4.5 multiplier) (100-0.64)*4.5*(810/1140)= 317.69 points
  7. Oh, didn't realize the DLC was that short, my bad. I'll then change my companionship pick. (Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom) A boy and a golem-like creature work together to fix the world
  8. So my game choices will be as follow: COMPANIONSHIP: An arctic kid accompanied by the spirits of Inuit folklore. (Will be finishing the DLC for this contest) PARTNERSHIP: Two detectives working together to stop crimes. FRIENDSHIP: A group of friends working together to save Halloween. RELATIONSHIP: Finding a soulmate that transcends race and species. BE IRISH: (The Saboteur) A WWII game starring an Irish protagonist.
  9. Requesting permission to come aboard, captain! Got a couple of games ready for the challenge, but will wait until the response before confirming them,
  10. @Dragon-Archon Edge case question; PSN games without platinum trophies but with DLC content. Are they scored the same way as platinum games or do they need 100% completion to count?
  11. So, about 1/3 through the competition and I'm doing... decent? Games cleared: - Sam & Max: Beyond Time & Space - Episode 1 = (100-56.11)*0.5*(315/315) = 21.945 - Sam & Max: Beyond Time & Space - Episode 2 = (100-60.83)*0.5*(315/315) = 19.585 - Sam & Max: Beyond Time & Space - Episode 3 = (100-68.17)*0.5*(315/315) = 15.915 - Sam & Max: Beyond Time & Space - Episode 4 = (100-70.78)*0.5*(300/300) = 14.61 - Sam & Max: Beyond Time & Space - Episode 5 = (100-72.96)*0.5*(285/285) = 13.52 - Trivial Pursuit = (100-36.41)*1*(1185/1200) = 62.795 - Lego Pirates of the Caribbean = (100-28.09)*1.1*(1110/1185) = 74.095 Total points: 222.465 While not as high as other competitors, i'm pretty happy with my current score. Goal for the whole competition will be a score of at least 500 points and hopefully a top 5 finish.
  12. Damn; I didn't actually think I'd win it. I don't know how to feel about this. Thank you all for the congratulations. It wasn't an easy feat to do (had to go trough a lot of different games), but it was super worth it. It actually made me play a lot more than I usually do (It tripled my monthly trophy count). Fred did an amazing job hosting it and everyone was a blast to compete against. Especially Midget and Wolverine, you guys are so high on the leaderboards, I didn't think I had a chance. I will gladly defend my crown in Season 2 when it happens.

Nevertheless, I'm in it to win it.
