Enhanced BLAEO v5

Hello, everyone. I’ve released a new version for my Enhanced BLAEO script that has some improvements:

  • Optimizations in general
  • Major redesign for Game List Checker: you now click a button next to the post to check the list, instead of it being automatically checked, and the results appear separated in sections in a modal (this removes noise from posts and allows you to quickly see relevant games)
  • Minor redesign for Post Generator
  • More customization options for Post Generator
  • Post Generator now uses caches, which makes it a lot faster

If you’re already using the script, I suggest to uninstall it and install the new version, as updating will lead to incompatibilities. This also means that you will lose any saved presets, but setting up new presets shouldn’t take too long.

Install from here.

Happy backlog killing for all!

Failures and New Strategies

Hi. It’s been a while since I posted here and I failed miserably to finish my challenge to beat / complete at least 5 games each month in 2019, so I’m changing my strategy a bit to deal with the backlog:

  • I will no longer try to “complete” games without achievements. In the past, I would try to do everything in games without achievements before marking them as completed. From now on, I will be marking them as completed as soon as I am done with them and I did everything I wanted to do.
  • I will no longer try to get random achievements that require a lot of time. Random achievements like a couple from Poker Night At The Inventory are just very unlikely to happen, and they add nothing to the game experience.
  • I will no longer try to get achievements for beating games without dying. These kinds of achievements are just a waste of time, because you can invest a lot of time in your playthrough only to die for something stupid and lose all of that time. I just witnessed this recently while trying to beat The Witcher 2 in insane mode. Nope.

I’m a perfectionist, but perfection comes at the cost of time, and time is precious. So this new strategy is to focus less on getting to that glorious 100% and to use more of my time to actually beat games. I need to stop this mentality that I need to 100% everything, because it is not healthy.

Here is the list of games I beat / completed in the past few months:

I’m currently playing Outlast 2, but I’ll see if I can find something that fits the monthly theme that I haven’t beaten yet.

2016-11 Report

Hello assassins! I’m still going strong with my challenge: I didn’t enter a single giveaway this month and only added one game to my backlog (Chaos On Deponia) because I needed it to play the sequel, so it was both added and removed. Let’s go for a third month! You can join in too, although nobody ever does. :P If you missed my previous posts, my challenge is not to add a single game to your library during a certain month, unless Steam automatically adds it (for example, when Steam added the special edition of Skyrim for everyone who already owned the game) or you absolutely need to (like I did this month).

I finally did what I said I would and played the Metro games this month. For the most part I went back to a few games I had unfinished / beaten and tried to beat / complete them to improve my completion rate.

The layout I started using last month got through some changes: I moved all my game notes to Steam in the form of reviews (if you’re my friend, you must have seen my flood of reviews on your activity feed), especially because it’s NaNoWriMo, so from now on I’ll simply link to the reviews. That keeps my reports a bit cleaner. And my profile revamp is almost done: I already changed all my posts to the new layout, but I still need to edit some things here and there. I also improved my profile a bit by adding a chart and some useful information about my perfectionist journey, although it’s not entirely complete yet either, so I’ll edit everything by the end of next month.

Also, for next month I’m initially attacking Broforce, since I’m currently focused on completing it. After that, we’ll see what the monthly theme will bring to help me decide the next game. xD

I hope everyone else had victory against their backlog this month and let’s keep fighting The Backlog!

This one has been removed from the Steam Store, so I can’t leave a review there. I loved it, it’s a great sequel. According to 4A Games, any humans in the levels The Chase, Red Square and D6 do not count towards the achievement for beating the game without killing any humans unless forced to, so you can kill them all you want according to them, but I didn’t kill a single human outside of those levels and still didn’t get the achievement. Well, I did kill the humans in the dream sequence, but it was a dream sequence, nobody was being killed for real. Other than that, I knocked everybody out instead of killing them, so I used a “fix” from a guide to get the achievement.

2016-10 Report

My strategy of attacking my backlog alphabetically (A-Z) didn’t work as well as I thought, so this month I went back to attacking it chaotically. I think I need to go back to my first strategy of attacking my SG wins with achievements in the order that I won them. Remember when I challenged myself and all of you last month to not add a single game to our libraries this month? Well, I succeeded! Did you? Technically I had a new game added to my library because the special edition of Skyrim magically appeared there, but other than, nothing! See for yourself below:

My last SteamGifts win was on September 22 and I haven’t entered a single giveaway since then. I’m so happy with the results that I’ll continue this challenge next month. It’s finally starting to feel like there’s an end to this backlog. Are you with me this time?

And I also completed this month’s Scavenger Hunt. It was really enjoyable and I had a lot of fun doing it. Hope we can see more of these in the future! My screenshots below:

By the way, would anyone be interested in helping me get some Left 4 Dead 2 achievements next month? I played a bit with Adelion and tso184 during the weekend and was able to get some, but I’m still missing a lot.

June’s Theme - Bad Trip

Lost in a demon world inside of your head, crashed down on a tropical island filled with zombies or fallen down to an underground world surrounded by danger. Which of these bad destinations would you prefer to go on a trip to? Well, get your tickets ready, because it’s time for us to assemble, assassins!

We are glad to introduce you our next monthly theme, Bad Trip, which is divided in three categories: head, body and feet. Click in these areas on our logo below to learn more about each of them. Click in the sword to bring back the origin post.

Origin

With summer coming up, we thought it would be appropriate to have a monthly theme related to that, and since Dead Island was getting a definitive edition at the end of last month, the idea of a vacation gone wrong theme emerged. Concept came up with the title "Bad Trip" (and also made the logo for the theme) and we went from there, trying to expand the theme to as many different meanings of a "bad trip" as we could, to make sure everyone could have an applicable game. We hope you enjoy it and participate!

I just can't get you out of my head.

Our minds can project the most incredible things. This category is all about that! Play games that take you on a psychedelic trip. That includes games that are about hallucinations / expansion of consciousness (especially if influenced by drugs) or games that have a psychedelic surrounding.

No body's gonna tell me how.

Our bodies can take us to the most beautiful places during a vacation trip, and when shit happens, it is the tool we need to use for survival. This category is all about that! Play games that take you on a vacation / trip gone wrong or survival games that take place in an island / tropical setting.

Feet don't fail me now.

Our feet are great for running from our psychedelic and vacation nightmares, but sometimes they don't take us too far. What if you were to trip over and fall down to an underground world surrounded by danger? Wouldn't that be a bad trip? This category is all about that! Play games that take you to an underground / underwater world filled with danger.

If you are familiar with a game that you think fits one of the categories and wasn’t listed, please let us know. The lists will be constantly updated based on your suggestions and on what you’re playing.

This website can come in hand for filtering the games in your library.

All entries must be submitted before June 30, 23:59 UTC. You can post now and edit as you go along if you want.

For your entry to be valid, the game you play must be listed in one of the three categories.


Ranking & Prizes

The ranking will work based on a points system that will involve AStats’ / HowLongToBeat’s hours to finish (F), hours to complete (C), points (P) and total of points (TP). Here are the correspondent points for each of the entries:

Entry Points
Has achievements. (C - F) * Σ(P) / TP + F
Does not have achievements. (C + F) / 2

Σ(P) is the sum of the AStats Points of each of the achievements you got during the month (excluding broken / date-specific achievements, so please don’t cheat to get those, since they will not count towards your ranking and might also leave a red flag on your profile).

If you get all of the achievements in a game during this month, you also get an additional 25% of your points.

If you want to replay a game that you already got all of the achievements, it will give you only F points.

If a game doesn’t contain C or F on AStats or HowLongToBeat, I will take the average playtime from BLAEO members who played it for the theme. This might not be the most elegant solution, but there is no better way to deal with it.

As for the prizes, there might be some giveaways, especially with the summer sale coming. We’ll see. But if there will be giveaways, I must warn you that your position in the rankings will not give you any advantage whatsoever. The ranking system is simply there for those who like a fair competition.


Wrap-Up

June is officially over in UTC, so that means you’re all returning from your bad trips. I hope you all had a horrible time wherever it is that you traveled to, and also that you had a lot of fun there.

The leaderboards are here with some impressive numbers. A total of 116 games were played by 45 members! Breaking that down between each of the three subcategories results in: 48 head games played by 35 players, 41 body games played by 33 players and 21 feet games played by 23 players.

The most played games of the three subcategories were: Mind Snares: Alice’s Journey by 6 players for head, Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons & Clockwork Tales: Of Glass And Ink by 8 players each for body, and The Emerald Maiden: Symphony Of Dreams by 6 players for feet. So as you can see, HOGs were very popular this month.

Congratulations to Akantha, SevenDeck, EvilBlackSheep and CaerBannog for being the unique players with the highest points in the All, Head, Body and Feet rankings, respectively. Each of you will get to be player of the week during July, in the order presented above.

The full leadeboards can be found here.

And the prize is: the satisfaction of having beaten so many games from your backlogs. There is no better reward than that. I have decided not to make any giveaways because it is not my intention and, in my opinion, it shouldn’t be the monthly themes’ intention to increase your backlogs.
