    I have resisted at least 5 purchases this year due to this challenge, it's so good for me! :-) I'm trying to get through 3 more games before I get something new, notwithstanding my one free slot.

    Xenosaga is progressing nicely, though it looks like it'll be longer than I anticipated. Howlongtobeat says 40+ for a completionist playthrough, I have 40 hours on the clock and only have just started the 2nd DVD, I have no idea how much more there is. I love this game so much. I have absolutely no idea what's going on with the plot, but it's just so much fun with the little conversations and quests (that you have to remember, no autolog here) and the camera moves so, so beautifully.

    Duckdate done.

    Three weeks since the last challenger crashed and burned. The weak of heart are the first to fall in battle. Now the grizzled veterans remain, stoically holding the shield wall against the hordes of game buying excess.

    I had the impression that it was much longer than that. I'd be interested in how they gather data, if it's self reporting especially for older games, people could be providing second playthrough times.

    The previous two Xenosagas were 30-40 hours IIRC, so I was expecting roughly the same from this one. I'm not complaining in any case.

    Forgot to update this thread. I completed rime, it's short but what started as a charming puzzler to run around, eventually became a bit of a boring slog.

    I actually hate the games that dynamically loop you back on yourself or have you running one way endlessly until you realise that the way forward is room you just came from which has now turned into something else. Fuck that.

    Anyways, check that off and I'm now playing far cry 5. Picked it and all its dlc up for 8 from epic store.

    I think I'm close on Subnautica but I fancied a bit of FPS action where I can actually shoot something dead

    Time to bow out for another year. Picked up Xenoblade for the Switch which puts me on 4 games. 3 years of failure. Maybe next year!

    4th time's a charm perhaps?

    I've got 8 on my radar who are likely completely unaware they are in the challenge... they will be culled in good time if there is no action from them...
    That leaves 21 for the remaining 7 months. There is a hardcore here who have the goodly mental discipline and can make it, so assuming a few more losses, I reckon 15 survivors by the end.

    @LoneWolf80
    Pigwhipper LoneWolf80... your Kai powers have deserted you perhaps. Did not Final Fantasy VII REMAKE drop onto your doormat a couple of weeks ago? You have a free slots, so the Duck may be merciful as yet.
