Finished Mass Effect 2 including Shadow Broker and Arrival DLCs. Jumped straight into ME3 and was pissed off that they never fixed the face import bug. Went back to ME2 to recreate the face as best I could and did a pretty good job. Inputted that ME2 code into ME3 and it just didnt look right at all. Ended up pulling a Black-Widow-in-Infinity-War and changed FemShep's hair from red to platinum to make the switch more dramatic so I wouldnt miss having the exact look any more. Seems to be working.

 

Also still mid Life is Strange: Before the Storm

Well, I'm sucked back in to Conan Exiles. I started a new character. Setting goals and working towards them is addictive. I wonder if Conan or Street Fighter V will be my most played game of the year? I'm pretty sure Nier: Automata will be third. I hope PSN sends out year in review e-mails again.

I will go back to The Witcher 3. I was having a lot of fun with it. But it might be after I'm done with Resident Evil 2. That's just a month away.

Sounds like you’re making progress. I’m about to start Assassin’s Creed Unity.

My goal for the Christmas break is to (finally) Platinum Fallout 3.  I'm working through Who Dares Wins right now as the last part of DLC though I still have a few non-trophy side quests I want to do.  Not sure if it's the DLC that's buggy or my system is just getting worn down but it tended to freeze up quite often, especially when there were many entities nearby.

 

After I finish Who Dares Wins I have the evil and neutral karma trophies to get and lastly the only other side quest I didn't do, Strictly Business.  The karma shouldn't be too bad but Strictly Business could take some time.

 

I want to finish this before my PS3 kicks the bucket on me, it's my original 250 GB I purchased in December 2010.  I have save backups but I know something will go wrong.

Playing thru DMC HD collection on PS4. Of the three original DMC games, I've only ever played some of 1, and beaten 3, and had never played 2.

 

I breezed thru most of the first game on normal difficulty. I found that the worst thing in that game is the wonky camera. The only stage that gave me any trouble was when you finally kill the slug-thing  (mission 20, I think), but overall it was good.

 

I'm about a third of the way thru DMC2 now. I've always heard how its the worst of the original trilogy, but so far it doesn't seem that bad. I do not like the upgrade system, but the camera is much better than the first.

Since early November, I have beaten Heavy Rain (PS4), God of War (PS4), Spider-Man (PS4) and Red Dead Redemption (Xbox). God of War is the best game I played this year. Also, now I know why Red Dead is so popular. It's so good. Nier: Automata is next.

I won't be beating any more games this year, so I'll give my year roundup now. I beat 20 games this year. One game each for the Xbox 360, PS3, and Vita. Then it was 17 PS4 games. The Sony Rewards trophy passes caused me to focus on Playstation games with trophies. Two of the games I beat I picked from my PS+ library because they were easy platinums. Rime and Color Guardians; they were fun. I got 10 platinums this year.

Two games that stifled my progress were Nier: Automata and Conan Exiles. I spent a lot of time with them. Nier doesn't seem that bad because around the time I was playing it I was able to beat a couple PSVR games that didn't take long. But Conan Exiles is all I played for about two months. Afterwards I took a month trying to find a game to settle in on, and it ended up being The Witcher 3. It's a great game, but then I went back to Conan. But this time I was able to beat quick games in Astro Bot: Rescue Mission and Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon.

Yesterday I got an e-mail from Amazon about games available for pre-order. It had the games you'd expect, Cyberpunk, Metro, Resident Evil 2, Sekiro, and Rage 2, but at the bottom it had a game I hadn't heard of before. Biomutant.

My first impression from the cover was that Palico has seen some shit (it's not a Palico). I checked out a few gameplay videos. How have I not heard of this game? It looks awesome.

I recently discovered the subreddit with an interesting idea — to challenge yourself with playing 12 games in 12 months. I started that and beat Oxenfree in January. Here's the full list:

 
Oxenfree — January
Teslagrad — February
Valley — March
Contrast — April
Shank — May
Hidden Folks — June
Orwell — July
On Rusty Trails — August
Hitman GO: Definitive Edition — September
Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons — October
Old Man's Journey — November
Last Day of June — December

The first game I beat this year was Resident Evil 2. Remake. I beat Claire A and Leon B before January ended, and I beat Leon A and Claire B a couple days ago. It's a great game. I want to do a run with the Noir costumes and Noir black and white filter, but first I should play through the bonus missions. Hunk and Tofu, and the dlc missions that are coming out in a week.

I don't think I'm going to make much progress on my backlog this year. I keep wanting to replay games. Soul Calibur VI, Conan Exiles, and for a while Resident Evil 2. I also feel like playing Resident Evil 7 again. I want to play some Resident Evil in VR.

I need help. 

 

I'm off Friday - Tuesday and am in need of a game to play. I don't mind buying. 

 

Frontrunner is the new Metro, but I have a feeling I wont like it.

Finally finished Mass Effect 3. Had the extended cut DLC installed and also the knowledge of all the disappointment of the ending. Maybe they fixed it or maybe I gave it a low bar, but the ending seemed fine. I also wonder though, in a world where people praise the 'bravery' of the fate of the characters at the end of "Rogue One" if today the original ending would have been taken better. *shrugs* We'll never know.

 

Anyway, on to Crackdown 3 while I have this cheap 'Game Pass'. The "Play Anywhere" aspect seems to be working fine on my PC.

I beat Accounting+ and got it's platinum. I don't know if I should count Nitroplus Blasterz as a beaten game. On the way to getting the platinum I beat story mode with all the characters, and I skipped through the entire second story. I suppose there was a good amount of story in it to make it more than just a regular arcade ladder, but I skipped through all the dialogue. I just rushed through everything to unlock the platinum in five hours.

I also went back and got the platinum for Resident Evil 2. I only needed three more platinums to complete a platinum trophy pass for Sony Rewards. Even though Sony Rewards said we would only get one more trophy pass of each kind if we had them active in October of last year, but it looks like new trophy passes do start when we complete one. If I had known that I might have continued to focus on games in my backlog that had reasonable platinums. For over a month I have been switching between Persona 3 Portable (a game with no trophies) and Bloodborne.

I wonder if I can cherry-pick another ten platinums before the end of October? There are a few Telltale games I have as PS+ titles. Those you just have to play through to get the platinum.

The Accounting+ trophies are kind of funny. It's a $12 game, and it got eleven gold trophies and a platinum. There are $30 games that don't even get a gold trophy. I wonder how Sony allocates trophies?
