Marvel Ultimate Alliance (PS4) - Is this allowed? In any case, people need clarification if Tom Clancy, Middle Earth etc can be excluded from titles too.

My gut wants to disallow your example as I've never known the game referred to as just "Ultimate Alliance".

 

"Tom Clancy" games on the other hand, I refer to them as just "Splinter Cell" or "Ghost Recon" for example so would allow that.. 👍

I do have a question though @iXanon, where do games with numbers to start the title land? Would they be considered based on the letter of the number? An example I have is 428 Shibuya Scramble, would that fall under F for Four?

I hope that my recent update makes this clear.. 🙂

  • Games that start with Numbers can be counted as either the first letter of the number - or - the first actual letter from the game's title - without penalty
    • eg. "101 Ways to Die" as "O" (One Hundred and One) - or - "W" (Ways)

Personally I think the waiting until January is what's going be the hardest for this event, since we've got the signup so EARLY. People are likely to sign up then forget all about it since it's 4 months until the start date, and they have to be UNPLAYED by January 1st, which means they're basically not allowing themselves to play those games until then. So I'm not sure if there's anything to do there, maybe allow it to actually start early and give a few extra months? That's a lot of games to 100% in one year as well, so the few extra months wouldn't hurt. Just an idea though! 

You raise a very valid point.

 

I quite like the idea of having an early start as a reward for those who are decisive and commit to a list early. It allows that bit of extra time for RPGs to be more easily considered, and there's potentially more events a list can be combined with should people wish to do so. Perhaps the event could go live on 1st September 2019 for those who wish to commit - but the list cannot be changed once they have done so. However, a user will need to signal to me that they are starting.

I liked that there was time to prepare for it. Me and my gf are trying to do GTA 4 and 5 right now, and I kinda wanna finish a few online stuff for other games before the start of this event. Also what would the point of this thread be if it was a 2020 event.

An earlier start still allows that, people who don't wish to start until January don't have to do so (and that is still when the event officially begins).

 

People with itchy trigger fingers can start early, but they cannot change their list once they have started.

 

I'm like you, I have quite a few other games I want to finish before 2019 is out (I've committed to finishing some in another event) - but starting early means I could combine games from more events, and I'm not restricting myself from starting any games in the meantime - which would go against the reason for starting this in the first place!

 

There's at least 26 games that participants have to complete.. It's unlikely that anyone will start and finish before 2020, and if they do then congrats to them.

I like the idea, and I thought about participating.

But atm I´m gonna pass

 

I´ve got a lot of unfinished games, but not a lot of unstarted games sadly. Even games with only the "tutorial trophy" AC Brotherhood(PS3) and GTA4 aren´t allowed :(

So that´s the rule that keeps me from joining currently.

 

I need to check my ps+ games again, but atm I think I need to buy like 15 games.

That´s quite the commitment, even for someone who buys a lot of games spontaneous.

Or hope the free games fill my blank spots.

 

But I´m sitll lurking to check for new games I may enjoy :D

I just find it a bit silly. I feel like it makes the contest and challenge irrelevant.

If this is the case and people are allowed to start on September 1st 2019 on a '2020 challenge', 16 months instead of 12? I'm not gonna participate if that's the case.

Why not make it so participants can start at any time (once they have a list) but have exactly one year from when they start to complete it? That way its still a one-year challenge for everyone (which ends in 2020), and no one has four extra months over others who waited until the official start?

 

Wouldn't be much harder to track - assuming you’ll make a spreadsheet of participants and their lists, you could just add an extra row/column next to their names with their start dates. Or if you’re only tracking within this forum topic, then just some extra text next to names.

 

 

Either way, you can sign me up :) I’ll come up with a list later once I’ve looked through my backlog

That is a better idea i think. I'd be a bit more on board with that idea. I still believe it should be from January 1st. But I'll accept that idea seen as everyone will have exactly a year.

I think whilst rules are still being discussed and finalised, we'll leave the start date as it is for now - and I'll tag everyone who has entered in a post to remind them.

 

@Last-_-Judgment for example you're now allowed 1 FREE letter swap 👍

@iXanon  I vote (are we voting? :lol:) for keeping it as a 2020 year long event, no early start.  So many games will be on sale for Black Friday and the Christmas gifts I'm sure quite a few of us will have new games to start.  In the meantime, there are other events to keep us occupied (if we need that!) for this Fall.

I agree. Keep it a 2020 year long event. Play any other games in your free time while playing event games as a second job :P

Glad you both think so too! People MUST have backlogs and other unstarted games. We are trophy hunters after all and it's not hard to avoid the urge to start those 26 games in the next 4 months. I know I've got many things I could do outside those 26 games I've named.

I vote we keep this a 2020 event.

 

I have other things to work on. Waiting that long shouldn't be an issue.

Hmm, fair enough then I suppose, it seems most people want to keep the 2020 start to keep it in the spirit of the event. I'll have to take a good look at my list and figure out what's going on for each letter then! *rushes off to look*

I want to join in, but I also will wait with the list. To much time left and to much games to come.

I'm interested but like others have said I'd wait until closer to the event starting before setting a list in stone.

I'm sure between now and then I'll have plenty more games to choose from.

A question, since we are only allowed to start in 2020, are we allowed to add the game's trophy lists to our profile earlier, but keeping it unplayed? 

 

I'm starting to draft my list, and I ask this because of 2 things:

 

1st - me adding them to my list will make it easier for me to commit to those games (will also annoy the hell of me.. But that's why it helps me to commit to said games..) 

 

2nd - I already have Valkyria Revolution on my profile, 0%, not started once, and want to play it before Valkyria Chronicles 4, but I'm postponing it, so, I would likely end up using Valkyria Revolution for the event.. I also have Persona 4 Golden Na version on the same situation, but it's more likely that I will use 1 of the 3 dancing games for the event. I'm not using P5R for the event because I want that plat for a milestone, and I doubt that I will hit a bit one on 2020 (I will play the hell of it when it releases, that's for sure, just not getting the platinum). 

 

My current draft is still a mess, since I'm mainly evaluating games/series, without really taking in account time needed for each game. And there are a few that I may start sooner (Dragon Quest 11, MediEvil, at least), so, I'm not counting on them for the event. 

 

Current draft:

 

#: 428: Shibuya Scramble

A: Atelier Meruru

B: Blades of Time 

C: Conception 2
D : Deponia, Chaos in Deponia, Goodbye Deponia, Deponia Doomsday (all 4 required) 

E: Earthlock: Festival of Magic 
F: Faery: Legends Of Avalon

G: The Grand Tour: The Game 
H: Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory

I: I Am Setsuna

J:Jurasic Park

K: Kick-Ass 2
L: LittleBigPlanet 3
M: My Hero One Justice 
N: Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart, Nightmares from the Deep 2: The Siren's Call, Nightmares from the Deep 3: Davy Jones (all 3 required) 
O: Our World is Ending 
P: Persona 3 Dancing in Moonlight, Persona 4 Dancing All Night (PS4), Persona 5 Dancing in Starlight (all 3 required) 
Q: Q.U.B.E. Director's Cut (PS4), Q.U.B.E. 2 (both required) 
R: Republique
S: Sly 2, Sly 3, Sly 4, Sly Mini-games (all 4 required) 
T: Tomb Raider Anniversary, Tomb Raider Legend (both required) 
U: Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[st] 

V: Valkyria Revolution 
W: World End Syndrome

X: X-Blades

Y: Ys VIII

Z: Zenith 

 

Extra stand ins:

Mery Skelter

Atelier Ayesha 

Lollipop Chainsaw 

 

Note: Games in bold are unlikely to be changed.

OK, I don't plan to start any of them at all until January, but will likely add them to keep a list going (and this saves me the trouble of trying to find Valkyria Revolution trophy list on my ps4 to delete it 😂).

I'm interested and I'm in. For most of my list, I decided to go with games that are above average in terms of difficulty with some easy games to play in between. I also to tried my best to avoid games that are part of a series and games that are popular and mainstream. The last 5 letters along with Q are pretty limited in options so you'll see a lot of repeats between lists. My list is pretty much final and I don't intend on changing any of the games.

 

10 Second Ninja DX (PS4)
Action Henk (PS4)
Bloodrayne: Betrayal (PS3)
Curses 'N Chaos (PS4)
Downwell (PS4)
Exile's End (PSVita)
Furi (PS4)
Grim Fundango (PS4)
Hyper Light Drifter (PS4)
In Space We Brawl (PS4)
Jotun: Valhalla Edition (PS4)
Kill The Bad Guy (PS3)
Lumo (PS4)
Mighty No. 9 (PS4)
Nova-111 (PS4)
OlliOlli (PS4)
Papers, Please (PSVita)
Quantum Conundrum (PS3)
Rive (PS4)
Shadow Complex Remastered (PS4)
Titan Souls (PS4)
Unravel (PS4)
Velocity 2X (PS4)
What Remains Of Edith Finch (PS4)
X-Men Origins: Wolverine (PS3)
Yoku's Island Express (PS4)
Zombi (PS4)

Holy cow! Five months is a LONG time to wait to start a game! xD

 

I don't know if I can wait that long. Then again, after playing Dragon Quest Builders 2 for so damn long, I probably have a lot of unfinished games on my list. :)

You couldn't have done this in 2019...I would have loved to join but I can't replat the whole alphabet two years in a row :P
 

But if anyone joining this wants to attempt an Alpha Plat Rain day I encourage you to try.

 

Trying to find a game for every letter of the alphabet that you can save up to plat in one day is a fun challenge
