    I'm afraid after 3(?) years of these challenges, I think I may bail out.

    It has been great fun, for some of the for excuses and verdicts delivered alone, and I certainly appreciate it reining me in to not buy more games than I can realistically play, but with game pass *and* new consoles I'm feeling the need to live a little after those 3 long years of gaming paucity!

    Update!

    I bought and completed Abzu 🎯

    It's so short, there wasn't time to announce
    my frivolous purchase (£1.79) before finishing it so I'm declaring it now.

    I've also preloaded Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity so please add that to my list. That should be my final purchase for the year unless I get games for Christmas of course. ;)

    Please add me to next year's challenge. It's funny how it really does help me to rein in my purchases and focus on playing what I already have instead of dropping games for the next new shiny. My streak of no backlog on Switch continues!

    Iím in for next year. Iíll probably have even less time to play games, so thisíll stop me from buying All The Shiny Things again without really looking at them.

    £50 buy-in, or equivalent non-UK currency. "Winners" share the pot at the end of the year.

    You wanna see fireworks? You want drama? You want snitches, legal wrangling, and recrimination? Put some hard cash on the table, all safely held in escrow by Phattso Financial Enterprises, and watch the sparks fly. :-D

    Please add Jedi Fallen Order to my list. Rather unexpected, but hey. I got gamepass ultimate (for cheap, to play some BFBC2 online) and tried this out on a whim. Been playing more than what I would consider "demo time", so it counts.

    Good to hear the interest in next year's challenge. You've not been completely ground down by this one heheheh. Keep 'em coming!

    I'll do an update in a bit tonight, if there are any further updates to go on.

    Man, you have a borked console and don't check a thread for a few months & they change the rules in the last month or two.

    Sheesh.

    Squadrons is queued with gears 5 & titanfall 2 so i'll keep that to fill a slot, plus Cyberpunk.

    Now i feel sorry for those astrobot peeps. That's some sneaky shit! 😃
    Soooo, what exactly is in your three slots then? Turing Test, Cyberpunk and .... or have you just bought BOTH Gears 5 and Titanfall 5. You're up shits pond if you have!

    Got to your next post and Turing Test is done.
    So Cyberpunk, Gears Tactics and Titanfall 2?

    No, i played titanfall 2 years back, i was just having a look at it on s/x.


    Cyberpunk
    Gears Tactics
    Star wars Squadrons is my 3rd

    Not that i have tried Squadrons, since it's been a bit of tactics and the odd warzone/apex legends game instead.

    Old games are still allowed after the last regime/rule changes i hope!

    I've put you.as failed but you may have missed the Astrobot rebellion. It has been decreed that it won't count so you could potentially be reinstated. Did Corpse Party get finished or are you Demon Soulsing it up and the PS4 is gathering dust?

    @Vortex808
    OK got it, thanks.
    Old games you have previously rinsed only count if you have re-bought them eg for a different system. In your case it doesn't count so feel free!

    Missed the update by a whisker but Lonely Mountain Downhill is done (all mountains and trails unlocked). Really good and very occasionally the most frustrating thing Iíve played in years.

    🎯Vampyr done earlier in the week. It was ok, not great, but I liked the setting and some of the story. It was also disturbingly relevant, given it takes place during the Spanish Flu pandemic, with posters everywhere telling people to wear masks, stay indoors etc. Kept a save save on memory stick to go back to Chapter 6 to mop up some trophies if needed.

    I've had a look at the Black Friday sale on PS store and have now picked up 🦆Hitman 2: Gold Edition and 🦆Control: Ultimate Edition. So that's my three slots fully stuffed full with Cyberpunk as the third on pre-order and releasing soon, can't bloody wait!

    Actually, for me, I think that's pretty much it on the game buying front for the remainder of the year! I might consider getting a PS5 before Christmas if Sony restock in a couple of weeks and the scaplers don't grab it all! If I do get one I will have to avoid that Astrobot game so as not to lose the challenge so close to the end on December 20th 😀!

    Oh make no mistake, I'm fully failed. Blood Drive is not done (Vita, though, I'm proper old skool) and Demon's is bought, guilty as charged. Now that it's done, however, I can totally go back to the former. :-)

    I'm silly, btw, I should have concentrated on Xenosaga before I got the PS5. I got distracted by work, however, and haven't really put in the hours I could have last week. I'm at the very end, too. A narrow fail, if I say so myself, but a fail nonetheless.

    🎯 Gears Tactics done.

    Enjoyed that a lot and will still faff about with the veteran missions and probably try the 'Jacked' campaign at some point. But time to free this slot for a palate cleanser.

    Probably the best Gears since G3 I think.

    Phew, finally made it to the last case of the 3rd Phoenix Wright game, the end is in sight.
    I'm on the fence about next year because I'm not sure if I'll bother getting a next-gen console, in which case I probably won't play enough to make it worthwhile joining.

    I could help out with identifying and punishing sinners though. Such as user Rivuzu who appears to be galavanting around the world of Demon's Souls without a thought of owning up to his crimes. I call for punishment!

    After finishing Gears Tactics, I now have 'Tell me why' in that slot.

    Looking like another dontnod thing of teens with power and dark secret. I look forward to digging through it. It looks like game pass may only have chapters 1-3 at the moment, so I may have to wait to find out how it ends.

    Yes I have had my Ducky eye on this miscreant for a while now. User Rivuzu is up for Pigwhip EXECUTION at the next update (likely tomorrow). No mercy at this late stage in the game. You fail to report a free slot and start a new game and you suffer SUDDEN DEATH. Even if you had legitimately finished a previous game and just failed to declare it, the jig is now up. I'm getting tough on you lax updaters now.

    User spookyxelectric is also for the chop for MULTIPLE failures to declare. Disgraceful behaviour for one who has survived the challenge for so long.
