Unfortunately Oskar in Atelier Firis doesn't work. Firis fits for several of the categories though... Family (Firis and Liane are sisters), Gym (Angriff is pretty cut), Job (running an Atelier becomes her job), Volunteer (game has quests and subquests), School (Firis is a student of alchemy)

 

Ok. It took me a while to figure out which game I wanted to use for the lose weight category, but I remembered Onion Bro from Dark Souls!! I've been looking for an excuse to go back to this game but couldn't think of a category for it. 

 

I also started Thronebreaker today and Count Caldwell would fit the overweight description. So I updated the list of games I made for "Lose the Weight" on page 3 and added both of these games to it. 

 

 S1052f4.png - Lose Weight - Dark Souls (Seigward of Catarina)

Sacbfbf.png - Focus on Family - Thronebreaker (Queen Meve & her son)

 S1c408c.png - Update Relationship Status - Man of Medan (Conrad & Fliss)

Sacc62e.png - Go to the Gym - AC Odyssey (Alexios)

Sc6f36c.png - Find Time for Yourself - Slime Rancher (Slime Ball)

S1724f3.png - Get a Job -  Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey (Alchemist)

S6ea8f2.png - Finish Your Masterpiece - Beat Saber (Rhythm/dance)

Sd92069.png - Volunteer More - Days Gone (Building trust with the camps)

S72e106.png - Do Better in School - Resident Evil 2 (Claire)

S4687a4.png - Make More Money - Ghost Recon Wildlands (Resource gathering)

Alright, everything should be updated up to this point. If you spot a mistake anywhere just shoot me a message, I'll fix it ASAP. Copy&Paste can cause the dumbest mistakes, especially after work :P 

 

On that note Happy New Year in advance to everybody. Don't celebrate too hard though, get in there for platinum #1 :D

Righto, the New Year is upon us. Have fun hunting everyone!

 

Updated list:

 

Lose the Weight - Dark Souls Remastered (I feel that Donut Drake is a bit of a cop out as it's a skin and the required trophy isn't part of the main list (as that's all that's required for this event) so I figured I'd steal spacey's idea and go with Dark Souls. I forgot about Siegward, for shame.)

Focus on Family - The Last of Us: Remastered

Update Relationship Status - Mass Effect

Go to the Gym - God of War (PS3)

Find Time For Yourself - Everybody's Golf

Get a Better Job - Spider-Man

Finish Your Masterpiece - Sound Shapes

Volunteer More - Dragon Age: Origins

Do Better in School - LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 (I don't want to buy a new game solely for this event so I'll go with one I own).

Make More Money - LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

Mmkay, this may work for a list, I hope... Only two I'm not sure about are the mini-games or artistic categories.

  • Lose the Weight - Final Fantasy IX
    Not just because it was an example, but also because I need to work more on my FF series, now that the Series feature has been added to PSNP.
  • Focus on Family - Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
  • Update Relationship Status - Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God
    It may border on stalker territory, but Gigadis and Cliora both have so much love to give!
  • Go to the Gym - Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Find Time For Yourself - Atari Flashback Classics Volume 1
    Does this count, considering the entirity of the game is just a selection of mini-games? If not, I'll find something else
  • Get a Better JobThis is the Police
    I mean, you're working towards retiring in the game, but it's still entirely based around your day job.
  • Finish Your Masterpiece The Last Tinker: City of Colors 
    I don't know a lot about the game since I haven't started it yet, but it definitely seems like its painterly? And there's a trophy for conducting an orchestra. Someone correct me if it doesn't fit in here.
  • Volunteer More - Tales of Xillia
  • Do Better in School - Claire
  • Make More Money - Akiba's Beat
    The trophy "In For a Yenny..." requires you to save 1million Yen on-hand.

This wouldn't count since the "mini game" is the actual game. Similarly, something like the POWGI games or Sudoku-only games wouldn't count.

 

 

@Leon Castle, yes, platinum-less games count. I love platinum-less games ;)

Great idea for an event - sign me up, please.  I had a pretty terrible 2019 for gaming and something like this should help me to focus more.

 

Some ideas for games:

 

Focus on Family = Life is Strange 2 - Stars a pair of brothers.  I was waiting for all the episodes to come out before starting the game.

Get a Better Job = Return of the Obra Dinn - The player character is working as an insurance assessor throughout the game (and really should consider looking for a better job).  I need to do a second playthrough for one particular trophy.

Lose the Weight = AI: the Somnium Files - Mama and Mayumi are both on the chunky side.  Just got this as a Christmas present, great game so far.

Update Relationship Status = Psychadelica of the Black Butterfly - Not exactly a romance game, but I'm pretty sure there are romance routes with various guys.  I'd forgotten all about this game to be honest, it didn't blow me away.

Volunteer More = Atelier Lydie & Suelle - No shortage of side quests to help friends and acquaintances.  I had to include one longer game on the list...

Okie dokie, I wasn’t sure on that one anyway. I’ll have a look at my backlog again for something else ^_^

I'm really interested in getting involved in this, if it's not too late? I need to have a think about how to make the games I have access to fit the categories. Should be doable. 

 

Seems pretty cool. As someone who is new to the platform and the forum, it could be an awesome way for me to get to know some of you. 

 

Happy New Year to everyone too! I hope 2020 is a rad year for all!

Lose the Weight - Dark Souls Remastered

Have to get back to this game and since I see it on a few peoples lists

Focus on Family - Lego The Incredibles

What could be better than a family of Super Heroes in the Lego universe?

S4a5ca7.png

 

Update Relationship Status


Go to the Gym - God of War

This may give me the motivation to beat the last few Valkyries and the Trials of Muspelheim

S896c74.png

 

Find Time For Yourself - Everybody's Golf

Plenty of fish to catch in the fishing mini-games they added
Sfb4f67.png

Lose the Weight - Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Big Smoke. Also, you can gain and lose weight in this game; I may do a little side challenge relating to that feature.   

 

Focus on Family - Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory

Neptune and Nepgear are sisters.

 

Update Relationship Status - Nekopara Vol. 3

There a many reasons this game counts but we can't talk about them in polite company. 

 

Go to the gym - Broforce

It would be harder to find a character that doesn't count for this category. 

 

Find time for yourself - Everybody's Golf

Golf can be considered a fun and relaxing hoby but playing golf is the point of the game. You can also go fishing as a side activity. 

 

Get a Better Job - Uncanny Valley

Security guard. The hard part is not getting bored.  

 

Finsh Your Masterpiece - Hatsune Miku:  Project Diva Future Tone

Rhythm game. I also finished the base game yesterday, so that is 1+ point for me? 

 

Volunteer More -  Zone of the Enders HD

It's opptional to save some people from mortal peril while not causing too much property damage.

 

Do Better in School - Persona 4 Golden

You go to school. 

 

Make More Money - Trinity Universe

There are at least 5 trophies that are money related. Most of them are about spending it rather then making it.

I've got one game done! Trying to decide which one to focus on next. I'm also playing a bit of Beat Saber each day but can only play that for about an hour before I'm worn out.

I guess I can put up a partial list. What I finished and what I'm currently working on are all listed as examples, so won't be much help adding ideas. :/ 

 

Go to the Gym - Yakuza 0

All those manly men, ripping their shirts off. Hopefully won't hit a wall at some point, but going well so far.

 

Find Time For Yourself - NieR: Automata (Done)

Catching those fish and sometimes other things in the water. 

 

Make More Money - Mafia 3

It was nice when I finally got to spend all that money.. Just need to do a second playthrough, this time killing everyone. :ninja:

I need confirmation that a game would be appropriate for a category from people who've played it but without spoilers. I'm looking at doing Detroit: Become Human for the Get a Job category and was wondering it it fits? I know two of the main characters have a 'job' (Maid and Detective), but as they're robots/androids, I don't know if it fits as someone doing a job instead of being made for the job. I do know that the theme of humanity and free will are touched on in that game, but would it fit? Once again, no spoilers please.
