Would FullBlast qualify as a one word title?

 

I remember seeing a speedrun of the original Evoland on RPG Limit Break 2017, and it looked nice. However, I don't know if I would like trying to get 100% in those games as they seem to be rather odd.

Yeah they're pretty out there, not really sure about the first one as I never played it but I 100%'d the second one on PC years ago, there's a lot of shit to collect & the graphic's & gameplay change up a lot so the game ain't for everyone

I beat CoD Advanced Warfare Friday night and actually thought the story was decent. It was cliche and expected, but it was definitely a step up from Black Ops 2. I never could get into the story and characters in that one. Mostly because I loved Black Ops 1 and thought they should have just left the story there (still by far my favorite CoD). Granted, I still don't like the futuristic settings for these CoD games. Some of the stuff just comes off as silly and ridiculous instead of cool and intuitive like it's supposed to be.

Anyways, here's the breakdown so far. I'm actually starting to make my way towards a Bingo. I still need to go through my list of games to find something that is a one word title. Not sure that I have any new games that would fit that, so I might have to dig deep into the backlog for this one. 

 

B1 - Rigs MCL (plat)

B2 - Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (story)

B4 - Raw Data (story)

N5 - Creed: Rise to Glory (plat)

O3 - Sonic the Hedgehog (100%)

Marked my second square - That You can Beat In One Sitting: Entwined

 

I played through most of this game last year but never got around to doing stages 8 and 9. Decided to start over this afternoon and got through the 9 "story" levels in about an hour. Entwined has some really nice relaxing visuals to behold in the free-flying areas in between levels, which is exactly the breather you need after stages that often require intense concentration (especially in the last three levels). A very short game if all you want to do is reach the ending, but I'm going to need to invest a lot of time practising if I'm ever going to get 100% due to the very difficult challenge mode.

 

List of Squares Marked & Games Played

 

[N1] That You can Beat In One Sitting: Entwined

[I3] With a Female Protagonist: Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

Also if you're into those hidden gem type games you should try out Evoland. It'd fit perfectly in your PSNP Recommended or 1 word title. It FINALLY released on PS4 after months of it being on PSNProfiles. It's a parody of old school RPG games & likes to change up it's look & gameplay to match with the game it's making a parody out of (like old school final fantasy for example) plus it's 2 games in 1 trophy list so you could use it for both recommended & 1 word! I'd be a tad skeptical though since it's kind of buggy right now so I'd wait for them to patch atleast the annoying bugs where it crashes on the final boss of the first game.

 

I'm still in two minds about that one. I'll have to check it out a bit more. Regardless, it's kind of a new release, and I only buy digital games if they're at least 50% off and they'll also have to be under the 10€ mark /I make the odd exception for games I think I'd really might enjoy though). Thanks for the suggestion though!

Another slow update. I am going slow because I know I have 42 weeks to go so it's not a big deal and gives me time to plat games for other events. ;)

 

checkoff4.png

 

I found Lara Croft GO and realized it would work for isometric view because it looks like its in that POV. It would have been completed sooner but I had to catch up on some needed sleep. I am getting a bad habit of staying up until six AM.

I could just edit my last post but...

 

checkoff5.png

 

I know that a lot of people go ape for Assassin's Creed games but I don't care about them much. However, when someone suggested that some Artifex Mundi titles have mythological themes, I first thought about Eventide: Slavic Fable... and then I realized I had deleted the account with that trilogy on it. :(

 

Luckily, there is another title which has genies in it, and genies are mythological creatures too. So Persian Nights: Sands of Wonder filled in O4. This is good as it is a fast simple game and I only need to reference a walkthrough so I didn't miss anything and have to do a second playthrough. I was surprised I got the hidden objects trophies done so fast, I was sure I would miss them as I am rusty with my hidden object finding skills. :P

 

A question: Would Dragon Quest Builders qualify for "Strategy, Simulation or Management" since it has elements of Terraria in it? I love that game.

Yes I'd think that'd count since you're doing quite a bit of managing to rebuild all the cities. & It's a great game! Can't wait for the second one.

For the square Finish in one sitting I have Sigi: A Fart for Melusina. It's a simple throwback to simple platformers with terrible writing but its fun for the hour or so you need to play it for.

 

I'm struggling for Isometric games though, has anyone got any options?

Might be a dumb question, but english is not my mother language.

What is "reboot or spiritual successor" supposed to mean in the bingo chart? Any examples? 😅

Shame they retired this. On the other hand, I saw a video saying that someone is making a spiritual successor of this in Dreams.

Reboot = Game of a series that starts fresh without building on the lore or story of any previous entry of the series.

Some examples:
The Ratchet & Clank for PS4 is a reboot as it retells the story of the original Ratchet & Clank in a new way. The "new" Tomb Raider-games (2013, Rise of, Shadow of) are also considered a reboot as they tell a completely different story.

 

Spiritual Successors = If a game-series is well-received but doesn't seen any new entry and another new franchise by a completely different developer uses core ideas of that one game series it's mostly considered a spiritual successor

Some examples:

System Shock is a well-received series which has spiritual successors in the shape of the BioShock-franchise or Prey (the 2017 one). A Hat in Time and Yooka-Laylee are spiritual successors of Banjo-Kazooie, Mighty No. 9 of Mega Man, Bloodstained of Castlevania, Axiom Verge of Metroid.

 

You might also try to search for "reboot games" or "games with spiritual successors" to see a few lists so that might help you, too. :)

I've finished up Rime to fill in my "Developed in a foreign country" square. Was one of the least helpful boxes I could've checked off though, as far as getting closer to a bingo :lol: But, progress is progress. Off to decide on the next game!

 

Original post updated as well.

B1 Hitman

I1 Syberia 3

I2 Outcast: Second Contact

I5 One Piece: Unlimited World Red

N2 Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star

N3 Get Even

N5 Strange Brigade

G1 Crossing Souls

G3 Ghost Recon Wildlands

G4 Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

G5 Tales of Berseria

O1 Yomawari: Night Alone

O3 Mafia 3

O4 Fear Effect Sedna

 

 

Two more crossed off the list.

 

Hitman (can be completed in one sitting). which was a lot of fun, but it felt like half the game was missing. Especially the ending was a letdown. Granted it has a lot of replayability, taking into consideration it being an episodic release makes it far less appealing. Having 1 mission for a whole month, if not up to 3 months where the only thing you can do is replay the same mission over and over is still lacking in content in the end.

 

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Hype), was also a blast. Probably my favourite COD campaign so far. Jetpacks, Exo suits, Hoverbikes, Mechsuits were all fun to use. Campaign seemed to be a bit on the short side though.

 

 

I've also still been working on Arc the Lad, and I just hit the part where I need to grind for a few hours. I think I'm about 27 hours in and I'm expecting 3-5 hours of grind ahead of me.

I'm working on the Spyro Reignited trilogy now for three spaces. That boss in Spyro 2, Gulp, was a pain in the knee, he frustrated me so much that I gnashed my teeth and lost a tooth! Stupid monster! Thanks to you I have to go to the dentist and prepare an appointment to have the ruins of that tooth get pulled! 😡

 

EDIT: I got another game on the card!

 

checkoff6.png

 

I was determined to make a Spyro game my 20th platinum. I lost a tooth in the process(don't worry, I am not in pain, the tooth was a crown, I just have an uncomfy hole in my mouth) but I eventually got the third game as my 20th. Once again I platinumed the 3rd game first, but then again, that's because you do not have to get 100% to complete the trophy list, which is probably for the best as I can ignore the annoying skateboard mini-games. You only need to get 100 eggs to fight the final boss and defeat her. Then you just do a miscellaneous trophy on each stage and speedway and beat the Sparx levels and you're ddone.

 

 

Funny enough, the last trophy I earned on this account was "Good Shoot, Tex" which was done in the railshooter part of Dino Mines. I tried to finish it but my railshooting skills sux and Agent 9 died. Seeing him lying on the ground with that look on his face after he was killed was hilarious.

B5 - Sky Force Anniversary

I4 - Strider

G3 - Sega Genesis Classics

G4 - Resogun

O5 - 2064: Read Only Memories

Adding a new one after a couple weeks, G2 for Dragon Quest Heroes: The World's Tree Woe and the Blight Below. 

 

And question, would Uncharted the Lost Legacy count as a stand alone DLC? I got it as a free add on for pre-ordering Uncharted 4 but haven't played it yet. I know it has its own platinum and all so I'm unsure if it'll count.

I've already gotten some new games for my card. If I repeat one from the last time I said this, I apologize:

 

You Think You Will Dislike(N5): Final Fantasy VII. Yes, THAT GAME. It's on the bottom of the toilet list of my "Favorite Final Fantasy" list. I was never really a fan of this game when it was created and the fact that you have to get the hardest "date" in Gold Saucer, the outing with Barret, who is one of my least favorite characters(I usually had Tifa and Yuffie in my party at all times) made me avoid playing this for the platinum. Also, when I completed it on PS1, it was slow and boring. Now I find there are booster commands you can use to speed the grind up and become invincible made me turn my head. Also, since Final Fantasy references are reduced to only the Moogles in Kingdom Hearts III and we won't see Cloud and Sephiroth return there, I might as well just go out of the way. I think I will dislike going back to really bad polygon models for 12 hours and Yuffie's ugly menu face, grinning like an idiot. :P

 

Also bought FFIX for the Switch as it came out recently. I got interested after watching a speedrun of it. The humor was a meme about Eiffel65. xD

 

That You Started But Didn't Finish(N4): Gonna change this to LEGO Jurassic World for PS4. I completed the first movie's levels but never got motivated to continue. Now's the time.

 

Strategy, Simulation or Management(O5): After consideration, I put Dragon Quest Builders here. With the sequel coming out this summer, I need to get the plat for this game again.

 

That Gives You The Feels(I1): Drowning. It's about depression, which my mother got inflicted with a while back, so it's personal.

 

Redeemed from PS+(B3): Burly Men At Sea. I would have put this down in N5 because I was reluctant to play this but I need to bite the bullet and check it out and it was either this or Day of the Tentacle and I am not really going to do that one again just yet.

 

And I think I put Moonlighter down for Adventure.
