    Ohhh. Yeah. No sales for me for a while.

    I'll have three empty slots by the weekend. WHO WANTS TO TOUCH ME?!

    I'm renting out slots (steady now!) if anyone is interested. I'm in with the adjudicator, I can make it work. Reasonable rates. Harsh penalties. :)

    Yeah I'm just holding back completion posts like a canny poker player. Division 2 - I'm onto world tier 3, definitely counts as complete in my eyes, but I don't quite want to say I've completed it yet in case that makes me stop playing - motivation is an odd thing sometimes. Similar with Valheim. Loop Hero I want to have a few more goes at the boss, but I'm close with that too.

    Yeah, I hear you on the motivation front. I took The Division 2 and the DLC off my list when I finished their respective storylines, and I did fear that I'd walk away...

    ...but thankfully not! I'm regularly dipping back in, making some progress, and hopeful of hitting the raids and such with a bit of luck.

    I really wanted to clear some of the late 2020 backlog though, hence Just Cause 4 going on there (a small handful of story missions away from wrapping that up), and also kickstart my VR time again by putting some sub-5hr experiences on the list.

    I haven't played PSVR once since we got a cat. Sad.

    Realised the £10 Stadia voucher I received expires today so bought myself the Stadia version of Cyberpunk 2077 to play on my iPad 🦆

    Only two ducks at the moment but with those being two purchases from the last seven days I need to check myself now before things get out of hand!

    Same. If I really concentrate on AssCreed Oranges I reckon I'll be done with it in... a month maybe? Made a mental note to only fill that slot with quick wins from now on...

    Suck my chapstick there are quite a few wee games in that sale I would have grabbed. Why have I sponged my slots. Ach no.

    I'm good. I'll be good.

    Cock of Olympus am I not tempted by some of these though.

    @monkman76 lots. But specifically Metro Exodus and Kholat purely because I've been recently reading up again on the Dyatlov Pass incident as well as randomly going to websites documenting Russian ghost towns and cities.

    Which puts me in the mood for the above.

    But I'll behave. I'm still mainly playing mortal kombat anyway. I'm obsessed.

    🎯 Walking Dead Season 2
    Jesus wept, I found myself longing for the cheery feel of the Last of Us 2 by the end. Buggy as hell, and seemed to be pushing my 360 to an early grave, but I enjoyed it. I do feel committed to playing the rest of the series now, but thatíll be when I sign up for Gamepass again.

    As the PS3 store us closing down, I went to look at things Iíve been putting off buying and found I already had:
    🎯 Dead Space 2: Severance
    🎯 Infamous: Festival of Blood
    Severance is definitely the better of the two, and has got me considering a replay of Dead Space 2. Not entirely comfortable with Infamous FoB disappearing forever though.

    Thinking about Tokyo Jungle, but in the meantime can I add Abzu Mr Duckbreaker please?

    Abzu will be finished before the beaky overlord does their update!

    It's lovely though.

    Hang on, hang on. You can't claim completions for stuff you've finished before the challenge. Unless you are adding them to your list first in which case you should be out because it doesn't look like you had any slots free?

    I feel like people are playing very fast and loose with the rules this year *grumble grumble*

    I think he meant he was going to buy them before he couldn't, realised he already owned them, and decided to play and subsequently finish them.

    I think?

    Well quite, if he's going to play and complete them they should go on his (full) list.

    @wuntyate hit the nail on the head. They were in my backlog (unexpectedly because my backlog is some kind of Frankensteinís monster), which I discovered when I was looking at what was already on my PS3.

    Didnít bother adding an update as theyíre about two hours of gameplay each, and it seems harsh to do that to our lord Duckbreaker.

    From now on, I will add short games to my list and then almost immediately post an update to say theyíre done. Abzu is already on there, Iíve been thinking about buying Rez Infinite for ages and itís on Play at Home so thatís next).

    @Nazo finished Last of Us part 2 which is still showing on my list, then played Walking Dead season 2, then played Severance, then played Festival of Blood. All 4 games but in the same slot, chained them one after another. All within the rules.

    Can you add:

    🦆Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS5)

    And remove:

    🎯 Paper Mario: Origami King.

    There are still some missing Toads and sundries to locate, but I am done with the main quest and may or may not return to it. It is a great game, hilariously funny in places. But with a really awkward combat system, that I will be glad to see the back of.

    Astroís Playroom credits are rolling. And I am torn to say it is completed, the platinumb is supposed to be quite easy. But it is a free game, and I do not care as much for the history of PlayStation. I was always Nintendo first.

    I've been thoroughly enjoying Ni no kuni so far (taking my time with it), but 4 free slots and an alleged Nintendo sale starting today means there's some money burning in my pockets.

    I crave something non-(J)RPG-ish to play!

    /Fully prepared to be disappointed by said sale (again)

    Credits rolled on 🎯 Just Cause 4

    Yeehaw. Didnít enjoy it as much as the third, and it didnít get any shiny Series X upgrades, but the loading was rapid and it whiled away a few weeks of on and off parachute combat action.

    Hopefully they shave off more of the jank for the inevitable next gen sequel. Iíd even be happy if they just fucked off the awful awful cobbled together story missions and just doubled down on the territory takeover aspects.

    No fucking idea what constitutes completion with this game as I'm going in almost completely blind, so I'll just say 10 hours played or first boss killed, as it was only 12 quid.
    🎯 Loop Hero

    Happy to call this complete, I've put 12 hours into it and beaten the first boss. I'm satisfied for my £12.

    Big update done.
    Trafford's ship has gone down in flames. You all seem to be efficiently ķnocking those ducks down...but does all that activity hide those who are teetering on the brink of failure?

    Oh, y'all probably know, but downloading free games like the Play at Home freebies is fine. No slot needed till you play them for 2hrs as they count as backlog (same with Game pass, PS Plus etc.)

    One of my Anthem squad has given up on us. The stupid quest with the four tombs was just too much. Which leaves us with a team of two to finish it. Eeesh.

    🎯 Bowserís Fury has seen its credits roll! Thatís a fun little game. I shall continue plodding through the remaining shines over the months, but happy to call that done for now methinks.

    No rush to populate the slots. Maybe some more VR. Maybe Outriders if it grabs me.

    @Phattso 2 - 3 will actually get you the rest of the shines. Theyíre surprisingly easy and quick to get.
