Hello again everyone, I'm back!! Thank you very much @MidnightDragon for once again hosting this lovely lil event 😀

 

After a very lackluster finish of only 1 game in the spring round, due to the death of my younger brother and being caught up in everything that came along with that, I am ready to give it a much harder try this time around. I am gonna try to pick 1 or 2 easy games, along with all the harder ones I usually try to go for! Without further ado, here are my selections:

 

  1. Yakuza 0 (15%)
  2. My Name is Mayo 3 (0%)
  3. Assault Android Cactus (0%)
  4. ANNO: Mutationem (0%)
  5. Everybody's Golf (0%)

 

Alright, there you have it!! Cheers ladies and gents, looking forward to getting those trophies popping alongside you all!!

I have to change one of my games. I think I would like to hold off on Resident Evil 2 until the PS5 upgrade is released, so instead I'll be playing Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. All games sit at 0%.

 

  1. Assassin's Creed Odyssey
  2. Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep
  3. L.A. Noire
  4. El Hijo: A Wild West Tale
  5. Wolfenstein: The New Order

So I've been absorbed in Horizon: Forbidden West which has prevented me from finishing any more games from spring's challenge, so this month's list is going to have a bunch of carry overs from last. Whoops. At least I got the heavy hitters out of the way (and by heavy hitters, I just mean Skyrim VR.) So here's my list for this time.

 

  1. Falcon Age - 28%
  2. Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son - 0%
  3. Pixel Ripped 1995 - 7%
  4. Bow to Blood - 44%
  5. Moss - 10%
  6. Duke Nukem 3D: World Tour - 0%
  7. Neon City Riders - 0%
  8. Monster Sanctuary - 18%
  9. Forgotten Anne - 8%
  10. Cyberpunk 2077 - 1%
  11. Songbird Symphony - 9%
  12. Red Matter - 0%

Since the only very demanding game here is a flat one (Cyberpunk) it should be easier to manage this time; Bow to Blood has no achievers on this site so we'll see if I can figure it out on my own, but besides that these shouldn't pose much of a challenge.

Last minute addition for me: I've been meaning to play Planet Coaster ever since it went on PS+ and since I just bought a bunch of DLC for it on sale, adding it to my list might give me the kick in the pants I need to finally start it. So revised list:

  2. Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son - 0%
  3. Pixel Ripped 1995 - 7%

Hello, still May 31st here, can I join?

Here are the games I wish to enter with:

 

  1. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst = 10%
  2. Resident Evil 0 = 4%
  3. Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime = 7%
  4. Arcana Heart 3 = 31%
  5. Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 = 31%

Kinda worried about Arcana Heart 3 and Resident Evil 0, but I think I can manage in time... so long as I don't buy any more games and just focus on these.

 

Some join after it starts. I haven't instituted a cutoff time, but thinking of doing so in the future. Also, you can swap out up to three games. Added.

Mission 100%: Spring 2022 Backlog Challenge

 

Special thanks to @damon8r351 @colinmazzini and @ShadowStar83x for their parts in hosting the challenge!


If you're like me, you've got an insanely large backlog and have no good reason you keep putting it off and watching it grow. Why not do something about it? Like previous backlog challenges, this event is a challenge to the community to select between 5 and 25 games from your backlog and complete them to 100% starting 00:01 AM EST June 1 and ending at 23:59 US EST on August 31. If you complete the maximum of 25 before the end of the challenge, you can add up to 15 more games for a total of 40.

Now, here are the details and rules. 

  • Event Philosophy: This is a firm commitment to complete the games you say you will within the time limit, so choose games you know you can finish, and select a manageable number. The minimum for the event is 5 games, and the maximum is 25. If you finish 25 games, you can add up to 10 more. You can change your games as much as you want until 23:59 EST on May 31. After the event begins, you can make up to three swaps. If you think there's a good reason to drop a game entirely without swapping (like your console broke or the game got damaged beyond repair), message meIf you want to add more games to your list or want to continue after finishing your list, you can add games to your list up to the maximum. Existing DLC counts in the challenge, but any DLC released during the challenge doesn’t have to be completed, but feel free to do so if you wish.
  • Eligible Games: Any game with trophies are eligible for the event, with a few exceptions. One game can have a completion percentage of up to 50%, but the rest must be 33% or under. Unreleased games are fine as long as they're released and you buy them within the challenge's timeframe. If it gets delayed outside the challenge window, you can swap it and it not count against the three swaps. Standalone DLC (like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy) is acceptable as long as it's not part of another trophy list. If it is (Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare for example), you have to also complete the other trophies. You can also do a game where 100% is unobtainable if you feel strongly about it, but you must complete all obtainable trophies. Individual episodes of a game that has separate trophy lists, such as in early Telltale games or Broken Sword on the Vita, count as a single game; therefore, Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse counts as 1 game, not 5. For this event, you may complete a game you have previously done for a different platform or region before the start of this event, but you may not do the same game multiple times during this event. Cross-saving a game for an easy completion will also be ineligible. This includes autopopping a cross gen game on PS5. If you want it on both, you have to do it legit.
  • Eligible Participants: Anyone is eligible to participate, provided you are serious about completing the games you say will. However, if you have flagged games on your PSNProfile, you are banned from participating unless you hide the games, get unflagged, or use a different profile. No cheating! You will be added to the list with your PSN name rather than PSNP, so if you change your PSN ID, please let me know so I can update you on the list. I will update the participants at least once a day, but if I miss you, @ me or send me a message and I'll add you ASAP.

 

Participation List

Do the games have to be in my trophy list by the time the challenge starts, or am I able to pick up a game I own but haven’t played yet?

Adjusted my starting line-up to:

 

1) Rayman Legends (PS4) 0%

2) Rocketbirds Hardboiled Chicken (Vita) 33%

3) Old Man's Journey (PS4) 0%

4) Gorogoa (PS4) 0%

5) Habroxia (Vita) 0%

6) Blazblue Cross Tag Battle (PS4) 66%

 

So glad Rocketbirds just fits within the limits. 😁

 

I will keep the list shorter than the Spring Challenge and only add something when most games are finished. I always try to knock out online Trophies in multiple games, so game time is spread at different games. The plan is to work on 1 big game (Rayman Legends) and in the meantime do smaller games (FMV, point and click, episodes, adventures).
