Challenge me! Monthly Edition
(17.10.2019 - 17.11.2019)
previous
Well, I am kinda late for it, but only for 2 days :-)
Let's start the next round of our monthly challenge. You will have one month, so the next might overlap a bit to get back to the mid-month schedule.
Please pick 5 games for your fellow assassins, one of it should feature our monthly theme. So anything related to horror or upper case title.

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.

Post here in case of issues

Cece09

May as well do it this month. If you could consider picking some from Free and No Other List that would be great

Cece09

whoops my new link didnt save but thanks for the picks

Cece09

actually can i get sunrider swapped. its in none of my lists because im waiting to play that when its finished

Tristar

Sure no problem, but what do you mean with not finished? Does not look incomplete to me.
Also I’m not sure I understand the list part, does it have to be on specific lists? I’ve chosen one game each from the two lists you linked and Sunrider is from the SG win list ;-)

Have two alternatives

Catherine 13-17h
The Charnel House Trilogy 2h
Cece09

they havent came out with the 3rd part of the game. so i’ve decided to keep it off all my lists for now
but thanks for the choices ill see what I get done

Well toren sucked so guess ill swap that for the charnel house trilogy

Cece09

Well completed both doki doki and waters above today. As usual 1 hour means 10 minutes

ninglor03

Pick me! I’ve played a bit too much Farm Together, I might need something else to do. Preferably something short, but… might as well not be :)
Thanks already \o/

Cece09

whoever picks go for the long

samwise84

Since I am responsible for Farm Together, I will pick something different for you :)

ninglor03

Yay! Thank you very much.
And this looks awesome! Apart from AC. Can’t play that. Since Rouge is the next one on the list. But I guess I can just play that instead ^^

samwise84

fine by me

ninglor03

Queen’s Quest 3 is dead! \o/

samwise84

The queen is dead, long live the queen 🤪

Hi guys

I have a bit different request. Recently I have played so many Indie games, I need something with bigger budget. You know, I love Indie games like we all do, but I need something with bigger stories, good animations, a lot of mechanics etc etc. Like Ubisoft or Sony games. Can you pick me something like this from my Steam, and expect me to play just one game, since normally those kinds of games are quite long?

Tristar

Challenge accepted & reserved finished :3

Well, there is no Sony in here and we don’t want to step as low as Ubisoft ;-) haha just joking, would have chosen The Division if you had it.

But these should hopefully suit just as well

Mass Effect 17-30h
L.A. Noire 21-30h
Mad Max 20-40h
The Last Remnant 60-80h
XCOM: Enemy Unknown 27-40h
aquilla

Oh my. I want to play 3 of them just now. I need to think about it :D

aquilla

I finished Mass Effect. It was good, but not as awesome as I thought it will be. Time wasn’t gentle for it. I will write a review soon.

Tristar

Good to hear ^^

samwise84

Well challenge me please. Please again pick games on the shorter side (max. under 20h), from either of the following lists. It would be great if Hand of fate would be one of the picks again. Did not get to it last month :(

under 8 h
8-15h
15-25h
no HLBT

I’ve beaten or completed 2,5 out of 5 games last month. So that’s not too bad.

aquilla
  • Hand of fate - HLTB Time: 10.5h - as you wish
  • Minit - HLTB Time: 1.5h - I finished this game. It’s quite nice
  • RiME - HLTB Time: 5.5h - looks cool. I need to play it myself
  • Tomb Raider - HLTB Time: 15.5 - one AAA game, just for fun
  • The Night of the Rabbit - HLTB Time: 9.5 h - and one adventure, if you want to train your brain, not reflex.
samwise84

Thank you so much for the picks :) I will try my best.

samwise84

Play or Pay https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/774NV/play-or-pay-definitive-edition a steam gifts group that challenges you to beat a certain amount of games (2 short, 2 medium, 2 long, 1 extra long) in 3 months time. You do not have to finish all the games, just a certain amount to get enough points.

Oh, my, God Becky

this is a truly evil list and fits perfectly with this months theme
i gave you a hat in time to not be totally evil my personal favorites from the list for you to play are Prey and DarkSouls 3

Only beaten Oxenfree last month and will maybe go back to it to get other achievements. :3

Please choose shorter titles.
No multiplayer games.
Fine with early access.
No horror which overly uses jumpscares. I’m bad at horror so please pick light ones.
For easier picking, look at To Play and ABC plan lists. :3
As always, thanks for digging through my huge backlog. x3

samwise84

I will choose for you :) All games are from both of your suggested lists.

86maylin

Nice picks. Thanks. :D
