Challenge me! Monthly Edition
(15.09.2020 - 15.10.2020)
previous
And here we are again, starting another Challenge Me! with the "Unfinished Buisness" theme. As an additional challenge (for the picker), let's pick something for your fellow assassin, which has been picked in one of the last challenges, but hasn't been finished yet.

For Pickers. Just copy paste and complete the data :)

* [GAME#1](http://store.steampowered.com/app/GAME#1-ID/) - HLTB Time: GAME#1-HLTBTIME
* [GAME#2](http://store.steampowered.com/app/GAME#2-ID/) - HLTB Time: GAME#2-HLTBTIME
* [GAME#3](http://store.steampowered.com/app/GAME#3-ID/) - HLTB Time: GAME#3-HLTBTIME
* [GAME#4](http://store.steampowered.com/app/GAME#4-ID/) - HLTB Time: GAME#4-HLTBTIME
* [GAME#5](http://store.steampowered.com/app/GAME#5-ID/) - HLTB Time: GAME#5-HLTBTIME

  • Please make sure your games are sorted by completion before applying.
  • If you so desire and you have at least 5 unplayed SG wins, the 5 games can be picked out of your SG wins (instead of only 2/5). Just note it in your application comment.
  • Note in your post if you're ok playing multiplayer only games.
  • Same for Early Access (I know some people want to wait for release).
  • When you finish one (or more) of the games picked for you, please post an update by replying to your picker's comment.
  • If the game has achievements, you can link to either the Steam or Astats page corresponding to your progress.
  • If the game doesn't have achievements, please post a screenshot showing your completion.
  • Finally, if you have completed all the games that were assigned to you but want another go at it, feel free to post another application.
  • You can pick for/challenge up to 2 fellow assassins, please refrain to pick more so everybody who wants get a chance at it.
  • You can pick for anybody who has applied and hasn't been given a list yet, unless they specified otherwise (see next point). It is recommended to signal with a "reserved" comment that you're currently picking for that person. This way it'll avoid the situation where you spend time picking games just to come back to somebody's comment 2 minutes prior.
  • Please use the following criteria when picking a list for somebody.
  • Pick exactly 5 games
  • Length-wise: at least 2 short games (under 10h to beat) and 2 medium (under 15-20h). You can use HLTB to check the time, or more conveniently the Enhanced Steam browser extension (it shows the HLTB time directly on the game's steam page). That rule can be overridden by the bottom (i.e. pick 5 short games) but not the other way around, as not everybody has the same time to dedicate to gaming.
  • Pick two SG wins unless the person specified SG wins only, in which case pick only in the applicant's SG wins list.
  • Quality-wise: at least 3 of the 5 games should have a positive (or above) rating. You can use this site to quickly sort games in a user's library by ratings (thanks to JaffaCaffa for the suggestion).
  • Please, respect the applicant's choice regarding multiplayer-only and Early access games, as well as other requests (exclusion of certain genre etc.).
  • Please use the code below to post your comment, it's already formatted, you just have to copy/paste & complete the data.

Do I have to participate in this event?
No, this is an event to help you reduce your backlog. If you already have a plan and don't want anyone to pick games for you, you're free to ignore it.

What happens if I don’t participate in the event?
Absolutely nothing.

What happens if I play all the games picked for me this month?
Still nothing. (You might get a shiny profile badge at some later date. And you can come back for another batch.)

What if I don’t have time to play 5 games?
Don’t worry, one is enough, we’re just asking the pickers to select 5 to give the player a little choice.

One of the game picked for me won’t run on my computer for X or Y reason, what do I do?
If this happens, please notify the picker by replying his comment and ask them to pick a replacement. If the original picker don’t give you an answer within 24h, don’t panic, just leave a comment and we’ll pick one for you. Meanwhile, you could try one of the other picked games if you haven't played them all yet.

I played all 5 games that were picked for me and I want more!
If you have completed all 5 games and reported your completion to the original comment, you can make a new request for another list.

When picking for other people, can I only pick “never played” games?
Not necessarily, you can also pick games that seem to have been abandoned but haven’t been categorized as “won’t play”. No beaten or completed games, or games being currently played obviously.

Why are there so many rules for picking the games? I can’t be bothered!
We’re trying to make this enjoyable for everyone so if you decide to pick games for others, please read and follow the rules. I’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for the pickers too, but if it’s bothering you too much, remember you don’t need to pick games for others to join the challenge.

I’m new here, can I join the challenge?
Yes of course (and welcome to BLAEO). Please just be sure to have your games sorted by progress before signing up for the challenge, to make it easier for your picker.

Have a nice Challenge me pending titles list, but I want to add some titles to it. This month I have very few times to play but one of the titles that I play is always one of the pending list. So if you want, choose 5 more for my list. Just 2 requirements, no multiplayer and variety of genres if possible, and,of course, a game which is not in a past challenge me list (I have lists on my profile with these titles). Let see if in October I can return to the dynamic with I started here on BLAEO. Greetings!

I must confess that I haven’t played any of those games but I saw you completed the first game of Labyronia and The Walking Dead and the other two of Shadowrun, so hopefully there will be something you enjoy :)

Let me know if anything should be switched

Aiori

Really nice selection. I will add them to the list, and probably delay one of the pending to play some of this selection XD.

Moony1986

I’m in again too :)

As always you can select games from this list

Thanks in advance and happy gaming :)

Sorry for the short delay, yesterday was a crazy day, tons of things to do but I had only few hours available. Let’s see:

  • Felix the Reaper - HLTB Time: 4 h 30 min (13 h for 100%). Nice and Funny puzzles game. If you like the genre you have to try it.
  • Broken Sword 1 - Shadow of the Templars: Director’s Cut - HLTB Time: 11 h (I finished it in 7 h). This is THE point & click adventure. A classic which today is still enjoyable. Very recommendable.
  • DmC Devil May Cry - HLTB Time: 9 h (40 h for 100%). Not the best game of DMC series, but it’s playable. I put on the list to add some action.
  • The Walking Dead (Season 1) - HLTB Time: 13 h 30 min (it was my time too). Very recommendable story, and the game which gave to Telltale a name in the industry. I enjoyed it.
  • Hollow Knight - HLTB Time:25 h 30 min (53 h 30 min for 100%). I did not play it by myself for the moment, but I have a lot of good references about it. It seems that is a hard game too.

I was checking your past Challenge me to fulfil the monthly condition, but I saw that you completed/beaten all the games, good work! I hope that you will enjoy the selection. If you want to switch something just tell me. Greetings!

Nice thanks a lot for the picks =)

I played Broken Sword in my pre-Steam time, so I’m really looking forward to play it again :)

Felix The Reaper and Hollow Knight both fit the next months PAGYWOSG theme so I think I’ll keep them for the second part of the challenge time frame and will go first for the two Point&Click games ;)

  • Automachef - HLTB Time: 10 hours - Automated pineapple pizza?
  • Death’s Gambit - HLTB Time: 9.5 hours - This one’s supposed to be really good?
  • Prey - HLTB Time: 16 hours - Blame Daerphen since he said we need to pick something you’ve been challenged to play before. :eyes: And you put it in your “not for me” list without even trying it out. :(
  • Snake Pass - HLTB Time: 5 hours - No step on snek.
  • Umineko When They Cry - Answer Arcs - HLTB Time: ??? - For your weeby needs.
