“What the Hell Is That Still Doing There” Backlog Event Ver. 3.0

1,585 posts in this topic

So if I were to go through a game, for example, NBA 2K15, and get every single trophy I can that isn't online correlated (servers shut down), that would essentially count?

I believe only a few members have used the aforementioned as monthly completions, & I may not have added that last one into the rules yet, but it has been discussed in this thread before.

I may have to resort to this at a certain point. A lot of my old PS3 games have platinums that are unobtainable. Oh wait, since Warhawk is completely unobtainable, would my 2% count 🤔😁😂

Other options you may not be aware of; the rarely used for example: story completion (Rule #2). Also, completing every available trophy in an unobtainable list (for reasons of server closure). I believe only a few members have used the aforementioned as monthly completions, & I may not have added that last one into the rules yet, but it has been discussed in this thread before.

 

This^

 

I have a few games that i started after or before server closure that I will go back and get all the trophies I can still get minus the MP ones to count!

Hehe, Thanks and damn!

My biggest problem with the version I found was it is a British copy. So there were a lot of questions involving Britain, Scotland, and Ireland. A lot of football (soccer to me) questions, which I know nothing about. NA copies were going for way too much money, especially what people were charging for shipping. Found this copy on Ebay for 5 GBP with free shipping. Just took a month to get to me.

Yeah, I did this for Lord of the Rings Conquest.  Impossible to do the online ones now so I completed all the offline ones.  I’ve got the original Ghostbusters: The Videogame in the same boat as well.

Yep, you can do that. I remembered it was Kevvik after posting that cleaned up an unobtainable list, but thought I won't name drop them.

Hmm...I'd say no if you couldn't earn anymore trophies from it. If the last trophies were earned within your window of joining you're welcome to count it if you like.

Go for it! Just make sure y'all mention they were server closures for me. Otherwise I might think you've hit your head turning in an incomplete list 😝

 

& maybe I'll remember to officially add this to the rules when I update the OP again....

 

Loving to hear about the teamwork @bruin-rocks & @Fnee2000 Keep blazing through your backlogs!

Hehe, it was my attempt at a joke. That game is lost to my backlog for all time. No way to earn trophies for that game without official servers. However, there is a way to play it supposedly using an Android app. You just don’t earn any trophies.

@Gretchen27 would you be so kind and add me to the inactive section of this event?

 

I'm leaving gaming for the forseeable future, but I'll update you if I've completed any other game during that time.

See y'all on the other side :)

Persona 4: Dancing All Night, platinum in 1 year 10months. First trophy May 1st 2018, Rarity 38.31%. I really enjoyed this game. I’m thinking of starting Persona 4, and doing the other dancing games as well, the music was awesome, I’m looking forward to hearing more and being able to have actual gameplay aside from a rhythm game. I have never been terribly good at them.

So for March I am cleaning up two games. The first one is Knowledges Is Power..... Al that was left for me on this playlink game was a boring grind of playing more than 20 games (against myself) to get the platinum. After 1 year and 8 months I can however say that I managed to do it. The second game that I am trying to clean, is the division. I am doing this  with a friend. I am however still cleaning it up but think I can complete it before the end of March

Due to fears of the Coronavirus I have been laid off from my job, so in this time I have started Persona 4: Golden on PS Vita, it will be a while until I get a trophy for it, but hopefully I can clear the game in my time off. Started it about 3 or 4 years ago I believe. I really liked the atmosphere of the Dancing game, and I’m getting the same feeling from P4 Golden, it’s nice to revisit the characters in a different type of game.

That really sucks. Every part of life is affected by it and it blows. No sports to watch, cant even send kids to school. And stupid people are freaking out and bulk buying stupid things like toilet paper.

I know the feeling of not having work. I teach here in Vietnam and schools have been off since the Lunar New Year started in mid January. They still haven't gone back to class since then and the return date was pushed back again for another 3 weeks. That is why I have had a lot more free time to get some games finished over the past 2 months. Thankfully I still have my evening online classes I teach to keep me afloat financially. Just tired of being cooped up in my apartment though. My wife doesn't want to go anywhere, especially now since the number of cases here has almost tripled in the past two weeks. So definitely use this free time to get some long awaited stuff done. Also, if you want to get more Diablo characters done, just let me know...

Damn, I hope things calm down soon so you can get your job back. & we all can get back to our outdoor activities. Persona 4 is an excellent choice to jump back into with the extra time though. Don't let the Rise line trophy drive you crazy!

@AmarisSkye Added. 

Welcome to the event! Your list has some really great gems in there, time to get back to them :D

 

@Psy-Tychist

Three done is awesome while taking on KYC. I was struggling to find time for it myself but now my own work has been suspended for the foreseeable future. Less then half the month left to wrap up a backlog game.

Took a few weeks but I have crossed another game off my list. A Lego game that has been on my to do list for a while. Took a little over 25 hours to get everything done. Just felt like there way too much of the same 5 or 6 types of quests to do. Made it seem like it took longer than it did. Anyway, I managed to get the platinum and all the DLC done...

How do you make the "agenda for vent" items like this? Also a heads up Portal 2 is unobtainable. So that won't be 100% unfortunately.

With all the craziness going on & participating in KYC, I somehow managed a game this month with The Grand Tour Game at 6 months, 1 week. P: 30.86% AR: 21.94%

 

I’m a little surprised at how high the rarity is since the plat is grindy for such a simple game. TGTG is largely just watching the show & doing some driving. But the completion requirements are 50 wins with each of the guys + Stig Abbie, & using the power-ups (aka: ways to ruin your opponents day) in increments between 25-50 times. This has to be done in split screen mode in couch co-op or against the AI, essentially padding hours onto the completion time.

 

Aside from that, the main game is a wacky, yet fun idea. If you’re a fan of the hapless trio it wouldn’t be a loss to give the game a shot. It’s not Need for Speed worthy or anything, just an inventive way to watch the show & smoothly transition into some easy driving mechanics. I didn’t mean for this one to end up on the backlog, even with the tedious grinding. But I had accidentally deleted it... Went to hit close application & instead my fingers dropped down to delete. This digital only title is a massive 50GB for such simple gameplay. Stuck at home for more then usual now though, I had no excuse not to finally sit down & finish it.

 

Deception IV has once again eluded me. 1 (yes, singular) new mission completed. It's seriously tough, but I'm hoping for better progress soon.

I loved this game. I loved the show. Having the game made it extra special. I got to play each episode as they released, while I waited for each update I watched the episode on Amazon Prime though, then played through rewatching it. Those three are so witty! I’m also first achiever for the 100% in that game on PSNProfiles, fitting considering how much I enjoyed the show and got screwed trying to be first on Harvest Moon...
