    So... Being down to two games I felt fruity and have bought starlink as it is so crazy cheap at 11 quid for the starter set.

    Played the intro and pretty quickly was like omg what the hell are all these markers appearing on the maps. But then I flew into space from the ground and have moved onto another planet.

    Hopefully I can get through the game not having to grind through markers for exp later on. So far so enjoyable!

    Please add Slay The Spire to my list - going to say that completion = completing the basic mode with at least 1 character, although I will likely go further than that, seems like a lot of fun.

    Thanks for removing Nioh, hugely unlikely I'll pick that up again any time soon.

    Oh, Doom 3 can come off.

    Where do we stand on games that you own already and have reinstalled to play through again even though you've already completed them?

    @wuntyphyve if itís the same format as the first time, youíre ok surely? Youíre just playing a game youíve finished which doesnít count towards the five.

    @Phattso

    Fire Emblem Three Houses has been completed so it can come off my list. Well, I'm going to play through the other two houses as well just so I get my money's worth :)

    So I just have two games still on my shit list:
    1) Persona 5 (I'm finding it a slog, frankly)
    2) Kirby"s Adventure (it's fucking hard in places!)

    @wuntyphyve might have a vested interest in this as Iíve been eyeing Street Fighter V again. Damn you E. Honda.

    On an unrelated note Iíve just installed Sniper Elite 4. Iíll be aiming for completion of the main storyline.

    Also, platinumed Mirrors Edge Catalyst. Go me.

    Where do we stand on double pack releases? I'm thinking about grandia 1 and 2 on switch.

    Surely it cannot take 2 slots. Maybe 1 slot until both are done?

    @DakeyrasUK Unless you're playing them both at the same time, you could count them individually. That way, you afford yourself a breather between them, should you need it.

    YS VIII Lachrimosa of Dana to be added to my list. Iím in holiday and itís 50% off so I went for it. Iíve been watching it for ages and have read up much too much for my own good. Just hope it isnít a dud despite all my reading.

    If I buy a gaming chair, would it take up a slot? Asking for a forum spammer.

    @DangerousDave_87 what would you consider the completion criteria? Just the assembly or sitting on it for at least 50 hours? ;)

    @Red_Bool Going by my DIY skills, 50 hours would be a reasonable challenge for a chair. Even a simple 4-legged one. :D

    @Zidargh Sorry - been busy with work, so haven't been back until now. Yep as already said, its on the Nintendo eShop. I got notified of the discount by email as its on my watchlist. It's the cheapest its been since it's come out on the platform.

    Oh and "Tennis" is on my system for my kids to play while the demo is on. I'm not playing it.

    I also finished Warlock of Firetop Mountain. I got to the end of the game on the illiterate thug of a fighter. He had no clue what he was doing nor why, but he bashed things okay (plus quite a lot of avoiding things if I'm honest). He managed it on the back of the deaths of many of his fellow characters who were more curious...

    There's more to the game and I will be looking to unlock all the additional characters, but I've got to the "end" finally. It was a lot harder than I remember the book being, but then I guess it was easier to cheat in the book ("oh, that die is on it's edge, so I'll have to reroll", "okay, I died that way, so I will continue from where I am and go the other way as what is the point of going through it all again?" etc). Not a bad game at all. I liked the graphic style and the way each character was different. I'd have liked it less hard!

    I completely forgot about Warlock of Firetop Mountain. It's one of only a few Fighting Fantasy books I ever managed to finish. Might hold off on the game if it's going to be a bit tough. Difficulty is not what I need right now! I've had Dark Souls and Trials to play through this year. That's plenty.

    Had a quick go of Ys VIII. Never heard of this series before so there may be a lot of lore I know nothing about. The hero Iím guessing has been in the series before as heís a lot more sure of himself than I am.

    Itís got nice music and the story seems okay. Few too many cut scenes at first and Iím crap at fighting. I think the fighting will become more intuitive as I get used to it. Iím not quite sure when my skills are recharged.

    Graphics are not up to XC2 levels, especially in the cut scenes, but it plays nicely. I understand hand held it looks a lot better. Apparently boss fights can be tough which worries me (had one so far which did have me chewing on health potions), but characters are supposed to all be good unlike the annoying potato in XC2 (and most of the characters tbh). Looks pretty huge. Not as open world as XC2 so far, with quite small areas before it gates to another.

    Iím enjoying it though. It looks like Iíll be in this for a while. Being Japanese, women seem to have lost half their clothing and the game already had me feeling like I was caught watching porn when my wife walked in on one scene.

    WOFM is just like the book. Just about identical from what I can recall. Just the fighting is different and thatís mostly where I come unstuck. The sword sponge managed to get to the end as it could suck up more damage.

    @GuybrushFreepwood Iím playing through Ys8 atm as well, on the Vita. Itís my first Ys, even though I already had Celceta, but that hadnít really grabbed me. Thereís a lot to like here. Combat has been fairly easy, though I tend to lose the main character often due to trying to skimp on healing and not bothering to wait around for health to recharge. Only died once on a boss so far. Iím at some 30% of the map and itís becoming a bit of a bore. Luckily it does mix stuff up a little after a while. Overall, Iím really happy I got it.

    Finished Rise of the Tomb Raider.

    Started Darks Souls 3 NG+1 and got back into stardew Valley, so no new games to add for now.

    @dominalien That's good to know. I'm enjoying it so far and think I'll not have any problems getting to the end. I'm at 0.2% explored I think.
