Hi all, welcome to my sixth update. I am really bad at updating challenge status, sorry for that.

With girlfriend in home office since two weeks, some PCs I have to fix for friends, myself being on sick leave for some time and having lots of things to do and to play time moves forward fast.

 

All I am hoping for is that all of you are feeling well and that you and your loved ones stay healthy!

 

I need to adjust my list of games because of different reasons, mostly due to time issues on my end since I played Ys VIII on PS4 earlier this year as expected from my side for the "ABC of unstarted games" event which didn't fit in any open category of my games for this challenge. Ys VIII had me very much under its spell. 

 

Spoiler

Drops:

  1. Focus on Family: I drop "Tales of Hearts R" and will play and finish "My Big Sister" instead. 
  2. Update Relationship Status: I drop "Until Dawn" and will finish "The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince".

Other change:

  1. Do Better in School: I finished "DreamWorks Voltron VR Chronicles" but since it really didn't fit into the category when I played it I started and finished "LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7" on PS3.
    1. I thought in the Voltron game there would be at least a small reference to the galaxy garrison, but it wasn't. So I wanted to be fair and finished a game with a type of school setting.

Real updates:

  1. Finish Your Masterpiece: Concrete Genie  1f4af.png :platinum: (05/03/2020)
    1. This game I liked actually. Playing around with the Genies made lots of fun and the VR part was not so bad but felt unneeded. Also was one of the games where getting the collectibles didn't feel like a horrible grind.
  2. Make More Money: LEGO Legends of Chima [Trophy: Eagle Vision - Pick up 20,000 studs as Eris.] :platinum: (27/03/2020)
    1. Definitely not one of those horrible collectible grind Lego games but path finding to quest NPCs would help the game to speed up in the end game. 
  3. Do Better in School: LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 :platinum: (30/03/2020)
    1. I must admit that I liked this game more then the new LEGO games. Maybe this is due to fact that it is less grindy as the other newer games like "LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2" which was just a horrible grind with too much collectible and side stuff. Also the game carries more humor if the minifigs are not voiced (Just my opinion).

I won't finish Okami in timr. I'm not even close.

That means I got 5 games for this and just as a reminder: Detroit: Become Human still isn't added for me. I keep it at the Find a better job category. @Jens @eigen-space

I'm going to throw out a few possibilities for my final category - Finish your Masterpiece.

 

I didn't really have a great fit for this category, but I did finish a few games that I think might work.

 

:platinum: Dying Reborn - One of the puzzles requires you to play the piano to unlock a hidden compartment

:ps: Claybook - the whole game is made of modelling clay, and there is a section where you can build your own environments - I would think this similar to Tearaway but with clay not paper

:platinum: Jigsaw Zen - I'm not sure if completing a puzzle would count as a form of art, the images were all either photos or drawings

 

Lose the Weight - :ps: The Simpsons Arcade Game

Focus on Family -  :platinum: My Big Sister

Update Relationship Status - :platinum: One Night Stand

Go to the Gym -  :platinum: Cybarian: The Time Travelling Warrior

Find Time For Yourself -  :platinum: Shalnor Legends: Sacred Lands

Get a Better Job -  :platinum: Control

Finish Your Masterpiece - 

Volunteer More -  :platinum: The Godfather II

Do Better in School -  :platinum: Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation

Make More Money -  :platinum: The Crew 2

 

I will leave it up to @eigen-space to decide - if they aren't suitable, I'm ok with them being rejected

I was able to squeeze one more game in before the end. MLB The Show 19 which fits nicely into the Go to the Gym category. We all know baseball players are the buffest...just look at my boys El Guapo, Big Sexy Bartolo Colon, David Wells and John Kruk. If those guys aren't athletes...there's no such thing :) If those guys don't convince you...I guess you could look at guys like Gabe Kapler and Giancarlo Stanton...they are beefcakes for sure.

 

Lose the Weight - Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken (Vita) :platinum: - Putzky is kind of tubby and Mega-Brno is a behemoth.

 

Focus on Family - The Order: 1886 :platinum: - Isabeau and Alastair are step siblings and the adopted children of the Lord Chancellor.

 

Update Relationship Status - N/A

 

Go to the Gym - MLB The Show 19 :platinum: - Beefcake central.

 

Find Time For Yourself - N/A

 

Get a Better Job Indigo Prophecy :platinum: - A couple chapters you play as Lucas at his job at the bank and most of the time you are playing as Tyler and Carla, it is as their job as cops.

 

Finish Your Masterpiece - Heavy Rain :platinum: - In the Prologue there is a trophy related to having Ethan finish his architecture drawing.

 

Volunteer More - Path of Exile :platinum: - There are several side quests related to NPC's in the various chapter villages.

 

Do Better in School - N/A

 

Make More Money - Rocketbirds 2: Evolution (Vita) :platinum: - In part two you have to collect and spend $50,000 and there is also a trophy for unlocking 100 different weapons/gear that you need to collect money for.

 

Thank you Eigen and Jens for another awesome event!

I'm a big fan of Banksy's art style and asked @spacey_dweeb if he could do something like it. Definitely nailed it!
