    Katamary Damacy Reroll
    Assassins Creed Odyssey
    Smash Brothers
    Spiderman

    @Phattso

    What about the rewards you promised for 2018's noble heroes who managed to stay strong and keep their heads while all those around them were losing theirs?

    For fighters you can attempt various goals such as beat the single player campaign, play with every character, play 100 online matches, perform every special attack or whatever else seems fun and challenging.
    Yeah, if someone came to the thread and said "I've got 40hrs in this thing, I've played five of the characters to the end, and have a 3:1 win ratio in FOUR BILLION online matches" then I think it'd take a real wazzock to deny them a completion. :)

    Cool. All of last year's heroes will additionally receive six new games from me on January 1st.

    IT'S A TRAAAAAAAP!

    I CAN'T BRANCH OUT, YOU WONT ALLOW ME TO, MIMIMIMIMI.

    Nah honestly, I'll probably just do something like "Is this game dead/dumb/meta bullshit/no competition? Dead game, retire".

    I'm this close to doing that on SC6 already.

    Put me down for this one and let's see what happens. I may yet fail this year's challenge when I look at the sale...

    This will make more sense (for me) if II carry over a few games I want to finish into the new year.

    IN.

    Like these new rules. Though how are defining 'finishing' a game? If we decide we can't be arsed, then it's gone, right?

    Iím sceptical about how well any definition of ďfinishĒ will work with the games I play...

    ...but count me in anyway!

    Wee update for me 17/2/19:-

    * Completed Red Dead Redemption 2 main story and epilogues. I miss exploring in that world, but after what must be 120+ hours over three months it is time to move on.

    * Completed Hyper Light Drifter, so it comes off the list. I know it's been out a couple of years now but I haven't heard much hype for it on Switch, it's a brilliant fit for the platform. Tremendous 8 hours or so.

    * Eight hours into BallisticNG on Steam, which is an homage to Wipeout 1-3, mostly 3 which is a good thing because that was my favourite of the series. It's a terrific game in many respects, but I've put it to the side the time being because of the insane difficulty spikes. It's not long out of early access so I'll see what comes with future patching, before I plead with the authorities to allow me to remove it.

    * Four hours into Persona 5, my first JRPG since quickly bouncing off Persona 4 Golden on Vita. Final Fantasy VII had been the only JRPG I've got on with before, until now. I love this so far and expect it to keep me occupied for a couple of months yet.

    🏆 erniewhatbert ( 🦆 🦆 🦆 _ _ 🎯 🎯 )
    🦆The Red Strings Club, Persona 5, Ballistic NG
    🎯 Red Dead Redemption 2, Hyper Light Drifter


    [Sub-challenge to not spend any real £ on games in 2019. I have a £50 in Nintendo eShop vouchers from Christmas and birthday, and access to a loan to a couple of recent open-world games, as well as a backlog. So far so good but I'm only two months in.]

    @OnlyJoeKing if you canít be arsed then you have chosen poorly and that slot is lost FOR ALL TIME!

    Hmmm. Interesting.

    What about if I buy a game, but pretty quickly discover that I hate it and couldn't bear the slog of actually finishing it. Can I formally abandon it freeing up the slot, or will it sit there shaming me for the rest of the year?

    EDIT: Ah, this may have been answered above...

    This sounds pretty good. It might be an interesting idea... ooh look, a 20% off coupon for Uplay games.

    Brain: please buy a good game, please buy a good game...

    I think I'll buy Trials of the Blood Dragon and never play it.

    @crashVoodoo just like last year, if you send me your updates I'll be keeping track in the second post of the thread.

    I guess I can play. Might as well start today eh.

    1) Destiny 2 (Completed single player campaign)
    2) Pokemon Lets Go (goal complete main game/gyms)
    3) BattleTech Flashpoint DLC (not sure on criteria yet)
    4) Torna DLC (finish main story assuming I get it for Christmas!)
    5) blank

    As usual I am not including FIFA as itís not completable, I just duck in and out now and then. But I WILL include PES this year given I keep buying it and never really playing it.

    Amazingly, there's nothing in the sale that I want. I may get away with the 10 after all. :)

    Well, I managed this year's challenge perfectly. If we'd been following 2019's roles this year, I'd still have 3 slots open.

    Count me in!
  • Deleted user 21 December 2018 21:52:27
    I'm just not going to buy any games at all in 2019. I must have about 800 I still need to play, about 6000 if I count the games I want to play through an emulator.

    Do I win?
  • Deleted user 21 December 2018 21:57:42
    I do want to buy the Prey DLC though, Yakuza Kiwami 2, Tetris Effect, the Persona games I missed, the JRPGs I missed last gen, and...

    I'm going to fail.

    My list :

    1. Diablo. But I've played over 100 hours already, so could class as "done" though I'll probably put another couple of hundred hours in.
    2. Oxenfree. Finish it
    3. Okami: Finish it
    4. Free
    5. Free.

    Sounds like a plan! Got 6 games 'on the go' at the moment, but could probably trim that down in time

    Got a SNES classic for my birthday recently too (playing through Earthbound at the moment mostly), probably count the SNES as a single slot? (Think that's how we treated compilations in the 10 games thing)

    Count me in, my plan for next year was to keep the backlog as light as possible

    Iím effectively going to use this challenge as an extra push to Ďattack the backlogí and therefore the titles I am looking at starting with are all XB1 related and are:-

    1) Assassins Creed: Odyssey (finish)
    2) DOOM (finish)
    3) Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (finish)
    4) Alien Isolation (finish) - had this on the backlog for YEARS
    5) The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (finish) - Picked up the GOTY but have never touched it....

    Yeah count me in please.

    Despite not taking part in 2018 I have enjoyed lurking in the thread, and it made me consider/wince at my purchases.

    I've more time to play games in 2019 but less cash to spunk.

    I don't think I understand. People are nominating games on their list that they seem to own already. Surely only games you buy in 2019 go on the list?
