    I collected a few stars but didn't really have much time for anything else. Getting the Mario 64 outfit made my day, though.

    In other news, the baby finally came home on Thursday. He is not currently someone who sleeps at night, but I'll take it.

    I have been really dizzy and disoriented the last few days. I think it is Blood & Truths fault. So I might have to abandon it from a health perspective. (Annoyingly I think I am near the end).

    My intention for yesterday was to finish B&T but as I was not up for that I started Rime instead. I should have listened to everyone that said it was a bit meh. It is really dull.

    And then to top it off I went to order Divinity: Original Sin 2 for Switch from Amazon (as a birthday present from the wife) and discovered it was download only. So downloaded it.

    Essentially went into yesterday with the intention of getting down to 2 🦆 but ended up on 5 🦆.

    I think we can give you a Health and Safety pass on Blood and Truth.

    I think you need to add a link to the past to my games as I have got as far as getting the master sword. Would be wrong to not finish it (for the tenth) time from here!

    Thanks all. Hopefully he'll start sleeping properly soon as, well, he's already caused enough trouble...

    Had two spare slots, so decided to have another crack at Slay the Spire today - and had my first victory!

    Will carry on playing for sure, but credits rolled on a successful run, so Slay the Spire can go onto my completed list :)

    Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a bit special.

    I am however finding it harder than a teenage boy at a bikini fashion show.

    Rayman Legends is awesome. The music levels in particular.

    Dragon's Dogma credits rolled for me a while back (the proper ending not the fake one). I will continue to plug away at the Bitterblack Isle section but for the purposes of the challenge I guess it can come off.

    It has not grabbed me like the Souls games have, too much of my success or failure depends on having the strong enough equipment (especially now in BBI). In Souls I would get to a seemingly unbeatable boss and know that my multiple deaths were always because I arsed up during the fight; in Dragon's Dogma now, I keep hitting brick walls because my weapons are doing pitiful damage. Unfortunately to upgrade the weapons or aquire better ones, I have to pretty much beat these tough enemies. I could spam Blast arrows after gobbling multiple Conqueror's whatsits for the easy win, but what is the point of that? Still going for the Platinum like the fool that I am.

    Well I soldiered on and beat the final boss of the Dark Arisen part of the game and hence got my third set of credits. I spammed the Conqueror's whatsits and dodged like a crazy and still only just scraped through. A good battle at least. DD definitely can come off now as I have pretty much seen the full game.

    I suppose I could try to put down the offline Ur-Dragon (harder than Daimon?), do the Speed run mode and if I am really sadistic, the even harder version of Bitterblack isle, but is the pain really worth it? My thumb is sore from all the dodging, so I might go and read a book instead tomorrow. Or talk to the wife. (What is this madness)

    Shit. I think I'm out. I just bought Prey. I have owned and completed it before though, it's just becuase I sold it and always regretted it so wanted to pick it up whilst it include the DLC at a good price on PSN. So not sure if that counts. If it does, then I'm out, but it's my own fault. I added games to my list I never was going to finish. I just don't do big open worldy games any more. I run out of patience. The fact I had three on my list was stupid. Witcher 3 is great but I'm going to be on it for years, Black Flag I can't be arsed with and I went off Borderlands very quickly. Soul Calibur was an impulse buy for nostalgia-sake and I regret it as I can't be bothered with it either.

    Hah. So yeah, stupid decisions, which is what this challenge is all about preventing. Next year dammit....

    I played it on the Vita years ago.

    Someone else posted about playing it and I was replying. (But without quoting). Their posts have disappeared though.

    Can you take zelda off my list please? Main quest done which has killed off any drive to finish off the optional ones. I'm very likely to pick up Blasphemous later today and would like to maintain my one game buffer. Thank you!

    Not to sound like an ungrateful arse (because I know how difficult it must be to manage this challenge), but when you do remove Mario Rabbids DLC from my 5 games, can you chuck Super Mario World straight into my completed section. It took 4 hours and 17 minutes to find all exits and beat the game. No abuse of save states or rewind function.

    Is a great game. A much slower pace than the NES originals, but so satisfying to play.

    @DangerousDave_87

    Phattso has not been around lately so the front page is a bit out of date. I am working diligently behind the scenes and making the changes to the spreadsheet when new posts appear. I would think the phat one will update at the weekend.

    Yeah, sorry folks. In the middle of a fucked up house move and work is kicking off - no time to play much less look at the challenge. Apologies.

    If we do it next year, there'll definitely be a PIGWIP_BOT_5000 account so a bunch of us can chip in without me being the drag factor.

    Or choosing between 18 or 24 carat gold leaf for the cornice in the drawing room. Tough life...
