    How is Assault Android Cactus, btw? Bit tempted, but I woukd certainly be terrible at it. Is it bullet-hell-y, or more like a Housemarque game?

    I'm still getting through Trials, but yeah....grind central. Hard tracks are so easy, the contracts do add a nice challenge.

    Still haven't unlocked the extreme tracks yet which is annoying as all i am doing is pissing around doing backflip challenges.

    @UncleLou

    It's quite good but does have a bit of bullet hell stuff going on in, particularly with the bosses. The final boss is extremely difficult with wave after wave of bullet hell and multiple transitions. I have no hope of beating it.

    I recommend it for co-op play (up to 4p with other players or bots) much more than single player. I don't like it in handheld mode. The handheld controls are fine but don't feel comfortable for longer play sessions. It's fine in docked mode. It's a short (2-4h), reasonably hard game that's all about ranking and high scores for replayability. I'd wait for a sale.

    @OllyJ How many hard tracks have you unlocked? Also, I assume you know Extreme is no longer the hardest difficulty.

    I have been clearing games from my backlog so not bought any in a while, until I got the comically named 428: Shibuya Scramble in a PSN sale. So one to add to mine!

    Going to finish off Captain Toad (not like that you filthy buggers!) and pick up the DLC so that's another one on the list.

    Oooo. Valkyria Chronicles 4 is half price on Switch E-Shop. Time for me to push myself across the Disgaea 5 finish line...

    (Not bought it yet. So hold fire rice-s)

    I need to add Dead Cells to my list. I only bought it as a thank you for the dev supporting Linux, but I've been playing all evening as it's absolutely splendid. What are the established completion criteria for this? I doubt it's ever coming off my list, I'm totally rubbish.

    @dominalien my next run based game or rogue lite/like will be on time played. I love them but am never good enough to finish them. 25-30 hours?

    I completed Floor Kids and bought Gunbird 2 to replace it. It's a 10 minute shooter and I've already completed it 3 times. I'll try to finish it with every character.

    First page updated. A round of applause for the ever-efficient data capture machine that is rice_sandwich. With a bit of luck I'll quit or get fired soon, so I can update more regularly myself. ;)

    @Murbs Hmmm, that seems awfully short? I'm 20+ hrs into Shibuya Scramble and I'm only about halfway time-wise. I'd need to give it at least 50 hours in that case.... 5 of which I gave it last night.

    That's actually a good criteria. I've been playing this for months now (on and off), but I don't see me finishing this. I do keep coming back, because it's just so satisfying to play. It's just I'm too rubbish at it to actually finish it.
    According to howlongtobeat.com the main story is ~49 hours (leisure, which is definitely my play-style :)). So if I'll consider this 'done' if I either reach 50 hours played or finish the main story (whichever comes first). If after 50 hours I did not get to the end, it is not going to happen :)

    @JoelStinty Any good? I think I have 200 gold points so £7 should be easily justifiable I think. I loved the mobile game.

    @vyseofhr yeah Iíve enjoyed the couple of hours Iíve spent with it. I havenít played the mobile game so I canít really compare the two. But it runs wells and looks pretty swish. A lot to take in though!

    25 hours into Persona 5 and it gets better and better :)

    Thanks for putting up these challenges, user Phattso. I usually can't abide JRPGs and it would be too easy for me to bounce off a game like this, without the gentle pressure of knowing it is taking up a slot.

    * add another duck to my list please, I couldn't resist Bomber Crew on Switch for a fiver.

    Update requests are noted. I'll sort them out after work as I gather user Phattso is otherwise occupied with the intricacies of his tentacle boob jiggle physics engine algorithm.

    Traded some games in so:
    🦆Diabolo III (Switch)

    Really risky proposition given this thread and also it being more of a game I wanted to dabble with as opposed to complete.

    I welcome suggestions on what would be a reasonable goal. I have heard people say things like the first X hours are just the tutorial. If however that relates to a campaign of sorts then that sounds like a good place to draw the line.
