Also finished Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 and wanted to place it under Historical Fiction or Mythology, in my head it counts but I always think outside the box 1f602.png

 

Asterix & Obelix is just like a more cartoonish version of the God of War-games so why shouldn't it count? xD

Just completed another one from my card.

 

O1 Developed in a Foreign Country - Yomawari: Night Alone

 

Unfortunately, not as good as I had hoped. While I love the art style and setting of this horror game, the mechanics were bad by design and seemed poorly optimized.  Now waiting for another good 30 hours at least and for MR Yomawari to show up and kidnap me. Been trying the latter for a good 30 minutes now...

Is it okay if I record the progress I make on my bingo card? I just finished my first game. I apologize but I haven't gotten confirmation that I was enrolled in the event yet.

Another square down, and my first official platinum of 2019, in my timezone anyway! N1 Last Game Acquired, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Overall, the story was really good but you can really tell the game came out five years ago - it kinda controls like an old Assassin's Creed game, and that's not really a good thing. Hopefully Shadow of War, despite all it's loot box follies, is better! 

 

And actually, I have a question @XX_FTW. So in the case of Tales of Monkey Island, it's different chapters of the same story, but they're split into separate game files with different trophy lists. If the rest are like the first chapter, they each contain their own story that strings together into one overarching story. Would I be able to use the different chapters/game files for multiple bingo tiles (IE, Chapter 2 for B5, Chapter 3 for O1) or is that double dipping since it is technically one story? Figured I would ask!

Got my second box, O5. 

Game is 2064: Read Only Memories

Square is with mystery or Detective Theme

 

The game is about, in short and without spoilers, you teaming up with others to find a missing person.

N1: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (beat)

B2: Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer: Comrades (beat)

N2: Thomas Was Alone (100%)

B4: Spyro the Dragon (100%)

G5: The Gardens Between (100%)

 

Shantae and Spyro were both really fun, barring a handful of annoying bits. Have access to two more in each series, suspect those will be done before the end of the year...

 

Looks like N or 2 may be my first line, since I've got two more in each I'm hoping get to by the end of February.

Tried Nights into Dreams (cult classic), but it seems to make me a bit dizzy. Shame.

Finished up another slot as well.

 

G1 Adventure - Crossing Souls

 

An adventure game with a lot of puzzles/platforming and 80s references. Was decent overall.

 

 

I'll probably pick up Mafia 3 again. It's been a while, so hopefully I remember where I left off.

Finished off Assassins Creed Brotherhood for game #2. A fun nostalgia trip, but not even nostalgia could help me gloss over the frustrating controls... I'll definitely play a couple more games between now and going for the Revelations platinum.

Wait, so I could actually count Umineko Answer Arcs episodes 6-8 as separate games since they are technically separate like Nonary games but were released together for the localization?  Well, technically it's 4 episodes but I finished the 5th one ages ago.  Dang, if I could do that I think that game would wipe out the squares for independent dev, anthropomorphized animals and platform exclusive since it's one of those language exclusive ones once I finish episodes 7 and 8.

I'm not specifically familiar with Umineko, but if it is a single game played over episodes the way that Tales of Monkey Island is, then no it only counts for one game. To state that a bit more clearly: If a game is episodic (regardless of a single trophy list or multiple) it only counts as a single game and can only be used to fulfill a single challenge. If multiple separate games share a single trophy list, each individual game can be used to fulfill separate challenges. Hope that helps with Umineko.

 

I've updated the OP:

  • New participants have been added. Please check to make sure you are listed. If you are not, please make sure you've posted you bingo card as an image at least once and then @ me as I have probably just missed it.
  • The Bingo Tiers have been updated to prepare for the eventual first bingo biddies to win big.

Also, someone suggested badges and I was hoping for a banner eventually. I'd love to make that happen for you all if that's something you're interested in. Let me know! Also if you know someone is good with that sort of thing please point me in their direction.

Finished the next game

B1 - Metroidvenia or Rogue-Like: Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition

I1 - Featuring a romance or romance options: Hatoful Boyfriend

 

I'm trying to go from top left to bottom right. Not sure how well that works with all the event I'm in thought.

So the next square would be with minigames in it. I was planning on playing Danganronpa 1-2 Reloaded for that.

Umineko is a bit weird.  I've played Tales of Monkey Island as well and can say that Umineko isn't episodic in the same way,  Each episode is a complete story, but they also do tie in to an overarching mystery.  As the player plays each episode and sees the events unfold in different ways, they get new information to be able to solve the overarching mystery, but each episode is a complete story with a satisfying conclusion.

 

It would be more like reading different versions of a story where creative license was taken to spin the events in a different way each time, but this is done very intentionally by the writer to provide new information and clues to solve the mystery..  That's about the easiest way to explain it without spoilers.

@XX_FTW I think you missed my card as I'm not listed as a participant. My first post was on page 15 with a link to my card, thank you. 

And I'm currently working on my next title, Resogun. If anyone wants to co-op it with me to knock out that 1CC trophy, hit me up.

I completed my first two games (still have to update my original post) of bingo.

 

N5 - By an Indenpent Developer: Rime

65 - With Player Choices or Multiples Endings: Zero Escape: 999 Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors.

 

I am on my way on finishing Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage for I2 Anthropomorphized Animals.

 

One question. I researched about the concept of "cult video games", but yet what does "cult favourite" category stands for? Out of the cult games, the one I like the most?

From my point of view, a cult favorite game would be a game that is held in high regards; a game that most people can look at and say ''This is a great game!''. Games like Skyrim, Mass Effect 2 or Resident Evil 7 would be good examples of this.

You could stretch it to "cult video game series" and it opens even more options without twisting the rules all that much :P Uncharted, Assassin's Creed, Kingdom Hearts, GTA... modern cult favorites if you ask me.

Honestly, I'd disagree.  Those are highly acclaimed games that most know about even if they haven't personally played them.  A cult favorite is something that is not very well known to the average person, but has a very loyal and devoted following among those who are aware of the game's existence.  Something that @Caju_94 is playing now that would fit is Zero Escape: The Nonary Games.  999 and VLR are definitely cult favorites.

Thank you for the explanation. I also looked into some lists and managed to get a better grasp of games that can be included. VLR is probably going to be the one to fit in. So basically, they are underrated games with a loyal fanbase, that is how I interpret.

Now that I think about it that makes sense, I didn't hear the phrase "cult classic" in quite some time to be honest.

The problem is that the video game medium moves pretty fast. A movie can become a cult classic, but once a game is forgotten it's most likely dead. With that only Okami comes to mind, or Yakuza... the Dark Clouds? The Artifex Mundi stuff has some loyal fans and I didn't even know the name before I saw some people talk about it. There's more if we count games neither on PS3 or PS4, but those would be awkward to track.

I don't believe I got the Cult Classic square but the first game that comes to mind for me is Wild Arms. And they did a PS2 to PS4 re-release of it as well. 

 

But yea, a Cult Classic is basically a game that never made it big (in terms of sales) but those that have played them, love them, and follow them to the ends of the world. 

 

Going back to the Wild Arms, none of them ever sold well but they kept making them due to those loyal fans of the series demand. And these people will always love the said game/s and not care at all what others think. Wild Arms > FF VII
