    Where do we stand on Valve giving me Half-Life: Alyx? I'm not sure I can get through any of the games on my list by March 23.

    "Giving" you? You mean for buying an Index?

    Hmmm. Feels like you're trying to CALLOUSLY GAME THE SYSTEM to me.

    Perhap if the group is feeling generous it could be considered backlog. But if you so much as point a realtime tracked finger at the game, you're done! DONE!

    You are teetering on the brink with that one (much as I was with my PSNOW free week gaming). If I sneaked through on a technically then it would be only fair if I say you can too.
    Agreed with Phattso, it goes into backlog, but if started up before you finish one of your three slots it is curtains for your challenge attempt!

    I would also suspend the two-hour "backlog surfing" rule for this one. Not a byte of it gets installed. WE'RE WATCHING!

    I bought the Index at least 6 months ago. I didn't even know there was an Alyx at the time.

    But yeah, if I start playing it I should be flushed down the loo. I think Xenosaga is the most likely to get completed in that time, I'd better get to work.

    Your protestations mean nothing. NOTHING! You knew. You always knew. You felt it. We won't be fooled.

    I preordered Dreams months ago and forgot that I had and stepped down from the challenge. Worst of all, several days later I got caught in a game breaking bug in Mass Effect:Andromeda. I am sure 25+ hours of turgid gameplay coming to a halt without restarting would have been enough for me to carry on. You should rack up some hours in one of your titles before March 23rd and get it off of your list like a good little puppy.

    @Saul_Iscariot bit different - they ordered the hardware, to which Valve subsequently bundled in the software.

    Well, you say "done" but we all know you didn't get the proper ending!

    @Phattso Third playthrough, this time on PS4 hence 15 hours and 70% to kill HK.

    I am aiming for a Radiance kill though.

    I seem to have played quite a bit of Astebreed tonight as Dragon Age was wearing me down. So that can fill my third slot please oh Duckbreaker.
    Seems pretty snazzy for a shmup; why they feel the need to have the pilots CONSTANTLY talk through it all escapes me. It's a shmup. You shoot stuff, why must there be some convoluted plot with cheesy anime characters!

    Ah just too late for this update but I suppose Dead Cells should be added considering I grabbed it from Game Pass and sank an hour or so in last night.

    I brought a quest I didnít know I was going to buy and 3 games Have magically appeared on my system from nowhere.

    So I may have to excuse my self from the competition. Got AC pre-ordered and no way near finishing any of the games I thought I be able to do within the last month.

    If the three games were bundled, they can become backlog. If you went and acquired them, however... well, you don't get to "excuse" yourself from the competition: you have FAILED. MISERABLY. At the competition.

    No graceful excusing for you!

    Mighty duck oppressor, I have finished the first batman telltale thing and have moved on to the second one, the enemy within.

    Please update my status accordingly when you have time.

    Thank you.

    Phattso is getting hardcore these days.

    Does a nostalgic revisiting of a game you completed years ago count as a slot taken? I'm getting yearnings for Demon's Souls that the unfinished playthrough of Dark Souls on my backlog just wouldn't be able to satisfy.

    Shadow of the tomb raider is done and dusted, including the challenge tombs.

    I have started Evil Within 2 from my backlog and remain unconvinced by it. May be the open world.

    Yeah, old, previously completed games are all good. Especially Demon's Souls.

    Finally got to the end of Shenmue 3.

    Got a feeling Coronavirus might do for me in this challenge. Indefinitely working from home... temptation is building.

    I've started Mutant Year Zero that I got free on EGS to scratch my turn based itch after watching my son play Mario Vs Rabbids.

    I was going to do xcom but perma death and the base building aspect annoys me
