If you're looking for the current Challenge Me! event, look no further: Challenge Me! Monthly Edition (Aug-Sep) // (Sep-Oct)


Also, there's an ongoing challenge for everyone now: ABC Challenge


September's Theme: Serial Killer

Last month we were off around the world hunting down screenshots from everything and everywhere! (Thank you for hosting the Theme, Daerphen!)

This month, my dear Assassins, we’ll let the killers loose in us! Nooooo, now you think we’ll all be out playing killer games? Sorry to disappoint you. We’re out to kill some Serial! I’m pretty sure every one of us has some kind of games series flying around. I mean, they are practically hiding everywhere! I could start with A (Assassin’s Creed) and go to Z (Zeno Clash) and find series all around!

Take a look at your library and let the killer loose!

Happy Killing, my dear Assassins!

Rules

Yes, I’m giving you some rules. Not to many, but some it’ll be. If you have any trouble with them, do tell me and we’ll try working it out!

  • Only games out of game series count! You don’t need to play the whole series though. One game is enough. If you want to play the whole thing, you’re welcome to do it though :)
  • List the games you played in the Submission Post, so I can keep track of your awesome killing (links would be appreciated, but are not necessary)

Submission Post


FAQ

Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.

What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?
Nothing.

What happens if I play all the games from the theme list this month?
You’ll probably go mad.

I don’t own any of the games from the game list, how can I still participate?
The game list is most definitely incomplete. If you own or know of any other games that might fit this month’s theme, feel free to suggest them under the corresponding post.

I already played all the games I own from the theme list, should I play something again to participate? If it was an awesome game and you’d like to replay it, sure, go ahead. Only replaying it for the theme won’t help you with your backlog though, so if that would be your only reason you should probably think about trying something else instead.

I challenge Dogmas to play Hitman Absolution!

Hihihi

Dogmas

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH

Blue Ϟ Lightning

Imma cheat and use the next entry on my ABC plan :P
cause fault is a series heh.

do I need to play multiple games from the same series? or is it just the one :3

if I didn’t know I would 100%% fail it I would try TWD s2

ninglor03

One is totally fine. But ofc you can also play the whole series. It just has to be part of a series ;)

kiseli

I don’t know why but when i click on comments in feed it redirects me to the august’s theme, only way to access this page is though monthly theme dropdown :/

ninglor03

Yeah, I noticed that as well, dunno why though. We suspect it has something to do with the server location… dunno. If it’s not getting better til tomorrow, I’ll start screaming for help ;)

- Giselle -

Same! I thought it was a problem I had with my cache but it really redirects to the old theme.

edit: when I sent this message I got redirected to the old theme’s page.

ninglor03

I know. I’m sorry. Should be fixed now points below ;)

mandrill

Yeah, that was just me being stupid. Everything is fine now. (And I even blabbered something about UTC! … time zones are hard.)

ninglor03

Yay! Thank you for fixing it! happy

EvilBlackSheep

Great idea, I’m gonna have to see what I’ll pick in there but that will be the perfect occasion to play those 4 midnight mysteries games I won on SG yesterday!!

ninglor03

It is indeed! And I rather enjoyed them! Apart from clover and crow hunting ofc….

EvilBlackSheep

Oh, if you’ve played the series, what do you think about the second one, the Salem Witch Trial one? It’s the only one of the series I haven’t activated (I didn’t win it but have a key for it) but I’m hesitant as the reviews for it are mixed and a lot of the negative feedback says it’s very bugged. I’d love your opinion on it if you’ve played it.

ninglor03

Can’t remember it being bugger O.O
Well, I got all cheevos, if that says anything :)
I know I had to go at least once back for collectibles though. Hated that. But otherwise I think it was ok :)

EvilBlackSheep

I might end up activating it so I play the whole series. My main concern was people saying the cheevos wouldn’t unlock on steam, but if you have them all it must be doable. Thanks )

ninglor03

Maybe they where dumb or lazy hide

Kaleith

now you think we’ll all be out playing killer games? Sorry to disappoint you. We’re out to kill some Serial!

I think I got bamboozled

ninglor03

Bamboozled? O.O

ninglor03

Oh, I see! :D
Well, pun intended :]

Kaleith

*throws some confetti* good job, nice theme too :p

ninglor03

Thank you! happy
tries to catch them

Kaleith

They’re boomerang confetti, they already came back :3

ninglor03

Sneaky confetti! :D

Bangledeschler

This theme is how I go about my backlog normally. I only just swept the first classic Serious Sam game at the end of last month, so I’ll strive to finish the entire mostly entire Serious Sam serious (classic, HD, revolution and main games. No VR based or beta focused installments) within the month. I look forward to participating this month ^_^

ninglor03

Yay! Good luck and have lots of fun!

uguleley

Happy to join in this theme, it always bothers me if I have played one game in a series that I own and then have abandoned the rest. D: I can already think of at least 3 games that I could play from different series that I haven’t completed, but I’ll start out with one and move on to next if I have time :)

P.S. Hands down one of the coolest theme titles yet!

ninglor03

That sounds pretty good. I hope you’ll have a blast playing them!

Thank you!

uguleley

By the way, are games without achievements okay for you? I’m planning to pick Max Payne 2, no achievements but I could snap screenshots from the ending/credits as proof. As long as I’ll remember to do that. :)

ninglor03

If you want to, you’re welcome to do it, but I decided to go with trust for this one. So if there is no proof and you say you did it, I’ll believe you :)

uguleley

I appreciate that! :) But I’ll probably end up sharing a few screenshots from my playthrough anyway, so I’ll link those in my submission post after I’ve finished it.

ninglor03

I’m looking forward to them then! :)

Lenor

but I decided to go with trust for this one. So if there is no proof and you say you did it, I’ll believe you :)

I love that attitude! We definitely need more of that around here.

ninglor03

:)
We are all here for playing, so I’m willing to believe every body is honest enough about it :)

Lenor

We are all here for playing

Exactly! As long as noone forgets that this is for fun, there won’t be any need to have such trust issues.

ninglor03

Bump to that! :)

Trent

Thank you for the theme, Nin. I will try to participate.
Actually, I already started playing Goodbye Deponia last month. Does it have to be a previously unplayed game?
Never mind– I saw your reply from a different comment. I’ve gotten too far to have it count.

ninglor03

Aw, sorry to hear that. Maybe you’ll find something else to participate though :)
Have an awesome month!

Tristar

Do Limbo & Inside count as a series? ^^

ninglor03

I have no idea! But as far as Dr. Googled tried to help, the one works with the things from the other, so I am willing to say yes!

Adelion

I noticed yesterday that I started playing a game from a series: Momodora: Reverie under the Moonlight. So I can take part in the monthly event with that. And if I feel motivated I may do The Walking Dead Season 2 as well later this month (after finally replaying part 1).

Out of curiousity (to know how far the system is stretchable ^^). Do games with Standalone DLC’s count as well for this event. For example: Giana Sisters - Rise of the Owlverlord, DredOut - Keepers of the Dark, Shovel Knight - Specter of Torment (especially interesting as you can have all DLC’s in one game as well). And what about games which only have one part on Steam like Gal*Gun: Double Peace. And games we played through before but they added achievements later like Amnesia?

ninglor03

That sounds pretty good! Happy to hear, you’re on board, dear killer :)

Ok, so this one is difficult. Though it obviously offers more playtime to a game, it’s still just one game, right? It’s not like it’s a new game, because then it wouldn’t be a DLC but…. a new game. So…. though I really hate to say it, I don’t feel comfortable to accept DLCs drop
Gal*Gun: Double Peace - if there are more games connected to it, but NOT on steam, I am willing to take it :)
You ofc can replay games, as long as they apply to the Serial part ;)
Since I don’t want any proof, but take your word, that’s enough for me. If you say you played, I accept that :)
Hope, that answers your questions :) And I hope you’re not mad at me now :/

Adelion

Nah, I’m not mad just utterly disappointed :P Everything’s fine. The DLC answer makes sense although I asked for the standalone which are playable without having the main game. Well, I don’t have any games in question anyway so it doesn’t matter. For Gal*Gun I’m sure that there is at least one other game but only available in Japan (?). Now to figure out this table thingy so I can make an official submission post.

ninglor03

Aha! You’re a tease! :D
Uh… well, we’ll see what to do about it, if that ever comes up :D
