    Not quite feeling the love for FFX. It’s good but not great IMO.

    The storyline is nice, as are the boss battles. Some of the temples can get to fuck tho, especially the one I just did in Bevelle. Ended up just using a guide for it as couldn’t be arsed.

    Not sure how it’s some people’s best FF ever?
    Like most FF games, if it's your first one it's the best by default as it'll probably also be your first foray into JRPGs and the addictive game design they contain.

    It's a bang average game. I've never ever replayed it since the PS2 version and I don't think I ever will.

    Those temples where you get the summons can fuck right off.

    Not played on much lately but decided to run through some hitman boat tutorial. Idea was to burn through the missions but it's so satisfying smashing someone in the mush with a fire extinguisher.

    All challenges rinsed, poor Ritter.

    Onto chessboy in the final test

    Finished Final Fantasy 9 last night. Showing its age a fair bit but it’s still enjoyable, mainly for its cast. Last few hours are a bit of a wet fart though

    Got the Platinum for Dead or Alive 6 so that's moved over to my completed games list. I know it's famous for it's jiggle but it really is a great fighting game. Going to keep playing to see how far I can get online, sitting at a C rank now and winning half of my matches.

    🦆 Red Dead Redemption 2
    🦆 Spider-Man
    🦆 Beat Saber
    🦆 Tom Clancy's The Division 2
    🦆

    @Graxlar_v3 I'm thinking of picking up Trials on Switch. What's a reasonable completion target for someone with mediocre skills?

    I was too busy playing Cultist Simulator last night to update the spreadsheet. I'll be updating it tonight so get your latest updates lies ready.

    @monkman76 I'm not Grax, but I also play Trials on Switch! Have you played a Trials game before? There's a fair amount of content in there, even if you just consider the Beginner/Easy/Normal tracks. If you play through the challenges that pop up as well, that's a solid 20 hours of content there alone.

    However, it is the Hard tracks that are the most fun. If you're willing to give the training levels a proper go and complete the majority of challenges that pop up in the campaign, those Hard stages are brilliant. Some of the best in the series. I'd say a reasonable target for the average player would be to beat those tracks. It shows you've given the game a fair crack of the whip, rather than bailing out when things start to become a little more challenging.

    @DangerousDave_87 Thanks! I know you're also playing it, but (and Grax please don't take this the wrong way) I get the sense that Grax's skill level is closer to my own than yours (read: not as far above my own level). On Trials at least. That's why I asked him :)

    I played a fair bit of the first one on Xbox 360 (HD?) and not very much at all of Fusion as it just didn't click for me. Loved the 360 one though.

    @monkman76 Fusion want great by any means. Even the early levels were poorly designed. They just weren't fun to play through. This game has done a lot to fix that, though. I've yet to find a single dud.

    @monkman76 I have put 40 hours into it and got gold in all medium tracks and at least silver on the first round of hard.

    I think a minimum completion target is about 20 hours though, see if you can get through to the last round of medium tracks as that is before the grind to hard)

    Edit 1: -This is my first trials game.

    Edit 2: - No offense, Dave is on my switch friends list and has times at least 4 seconds quicker than my best...

    As I thought... I look forward to being 4 seconds behind yours. :)

    What's your Switch ID by the way?

    It is kinda useless though as trials timetables are shit and times recorded whilst offline (which is 90% of my times) are not included on the timetable.

    Sooooooooooo. Path of Exile.

    I've had the PC version since the first alpha and early access days in 2010 or so, and still occasionally play it. I must have clocked up several hundred hours.

    The PS4 version will be released in two weeks. Free 2 play (in the best possible way).

    I will certainly give it a try. I might have enough after 2, 5 or 200 hours. I don't know.

    Free pass? Thoughts? :)

    @UncleLou

    No free pass! You have plenty of free slots. The question you should ask yourself is if you'll be playing PoE evermore or nevermore.

    PAH.

    What's the difference if I play a new season of PoE on the PC vs the PS4? Wouldn't ever put the PC version on the list, obviously. Same game on the PS4, only I could rest my mouse arm. :)

    And what's the finishing criteria? You can't finish PoE. Or you could say I've finished it several dozen times.

    I am for a - if you double dip on a game you have already completed it doesn't count change.

    If the game is worth playing then surely it's worthy of the honour of putting it on the list? Or don't you hold it in the same esteem as Animal Crossing Odyssey? If not, why are you even playing it? Plus you have plenty of free slots so it hardly matters.

    Are you saying you are more lenient when there are fewer free slots, effectively promoting game gluttony, the OPPOSITE of what this thread is trying to achieve? I for one am filled with indignation.


    And let's assume I was using my Fortnite account on several platforms, would they all count seprately? Or if I continued using my 2017 account on another platform? TRICK QUESTION.

    As Fortnite is a unified account and progression is tied, it can all count as one.

    Buying the same game on two systems with two separate progressions would be two games.

    Path of Exile is free to play, so I won't buy it, and I wouldn't be surprised if I can use my account which I first used for the standalone PoE version, and which is now tied with Steam.

    So, it's basically like Fortnite.

    I'm saying that this thread is a despotic kleptocracy that is not free from being harshly judgemental when it suits. That, and it's more a question of honour. I'm sure Goethe would be turning in his grave at your cavalier attitude!

    I backed Hypnospace Outlaw on kickstarter years ago and that just came out so my list is now:

    1) Total Warhammer 2
    2) Spyro reignited
    3) Shenmue 2
    4) Hypnospace outlaw

    Started Shenmue 2 and it's nice to be back in that, much more familiar with the first game so the improvements and changes made for the sequel feel pretty significant early in

    The English voice dub is pretty hilarious at times, so will be sticking to that (finished the game on the Dreamcast back in the day, which was JP voices only)

    Please add Trials Rising (Switch) to my list.

    Completion target will be to get through to the last round of medium tracks (thanks Grax). Stretch goal to complete the Hard tracks.

    I also really want Baba Is You, but that would take me to five :/ Really need to get Astro Bot and Captain Toad over the line (both are close).

    \o/ just checked the games release schedule and there is nothing of note (for me) being released in the next few months.

    It means i can slow down, take my time and beat a few of the bigger games on my list (also save money for the stupid expensive version of FF14 i have preordered (also the stupid expensive version of fire emblem i am going to buy).

    @rice_sandwich Goethe Schmoethe!

    /famous Goethe quote*


    I shall add Path of Exile if I play the PS4 version, and I will forever complain about it, since it means I am effectively on 4 slots. I haven't uninstalled the PC version in 9 years, not once.

    *It's probably not famous outside Germany "lick me in the arse" ;-)

    In fact, fortune has smiled upon you as I forgot to add PoE when I updated the spreadsheet. So you're off the hook. Lucky you.

    Just remember (everyone) that the challenge is intended to help you flourish as a gamer. At times this will mean that seemingly arbitrary, contrary decisions being made as we consider what you need, rather than want, in the cultivation of such essential qualities as fortitude, perseverance, wonder and the ability to knuckle down in order to overcome great challenge.

    There is no mince in my words! I have decided to give Parkitect another try. It's not what I want but it's what I need.
