August: Unfinished Business

It’s been a while since we last revisited our unfinished games and I have a feeling that almost 2 years later most of us still have sloppy kills that need our attention.

To participate, reply to this post and tell us which games that fit the monthly theme you’re going to play.
The games that qualify are games from your unfinished category that you last played before June 2019 and that you already have 30 minutes of playtime OR 1 achievement in.


You can use the following (or similar) format to make it easier for me to keep track of everyone’s progress, but feel free to add any extra thoughts about the game(s) to your post!

Name | Achievements obtained | Playtime | Status
:-: | :-: | :-: | :-: | :-: 
name of game 1 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished
name of game 2 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished
name of game 3 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished
TOTAL: | achievements obtained | playtime this month | Number of games finished

Have fun!

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 of my unfinished games this month?
Your backlog will be a much smaller place.

I don’t have any unfinished games!
Really? well that makes one of us… I salute you.

I already finished my entry can I play another?
Go ahead - the goal is to reduce your unfinished games list. The more you can play the better.

I’m going to work on my ABC plan numero 2 because its mostly unfinished games…that means starting up a hat in time again I guess.

Most of my unfinished games are ones I’m either stuck in, playing slowly, or I just don’t want to leave them as beaten, but then again… I might as well try and find something!

Aww, nice. I’ve been meaning to get my average game completion rate above 86 for a long time, but it’s so tempting to start new games. Right now it’s 85.65% according to AStats. I’ll be happy if I get somewhere near 87% by the end of the month.

I also genuinely can’t believe it’s been 2 years, that’s pretty nutty! Loved the theme last time, happy to go at it again. My unfinished is sitting at 13% currently.

(My Plants vs. Zombies hours were super inflated beforehand with afk farming coins in the garden.) So happy to have completed it, that vase puzzle was giving me way more trouble than it should’ve! Misclicking…ended up on wave 14 outta 15 a third of the time…one wave literally a single hit away. ahhh I did it though. :D Finished the campaign & every puzzle/survival. Beat this game so many times back when it was on big fish but never got around to finishing the steam one.

Just beat all the levels in Chime Sharp & after playing through all levels/several of ‘em multiple times, I don’t see myself being able to complete them on harder difficulties. I’m likely going to stop here. Here’s screenshot of my final level score (looks like this when the levels are still locked.)

I’m marking Lethal League as Beaten in my game categories since I’ve played all that I’m interested in, got far in the challenger mode but I’m not up for restarting from the beginning every time. Have played a couple hundred rounds/matches, that’s good enough for me!

For some reason One Finger Death Punch’s achievements are only unlocking after I exit the game, tried validating files but seems like many people are experiencing it based on the discussions. Here’s a screenshot of me beating it.

So happy to have finally played To the Moon, I previously played the first 20-30 minutes twice but never continued on with the rest. Definitely got a lot more interesting and emotional after that point.

Played through 29 out of 40 local coop levels of Death Squared and 20 of the Story Mode. Enjoyed it, but not so much solo. A lot of death traps right at the end, it’s getting more tedious than fun so Imma end it here.

Looks at Monthly Theme and wipes sweat from forehead… I have far too many unfinished games (%8 I believe), and this theme makes me nervous. Still I will try to pick a few out and maybe add some more if I feel lucky. Though I did pick some games that require commitment, so we shall see gulp.

This theme……I tried a few times with Challenge Me to incorporate the idea of finishing unfinished games, but I ended up finding that, perhaps I stopped playing them for a reason. D: Should I just decide to throw some of them into won’t play category? >< Nonetheless, I’ll give this another try.
