2. Layton's Mystery Journey
3. Dynamite Cop
4. Mega Man 7
5. Mario & Rabbids Kingdom Battle
6. Metroid Samus Returns
7. Mega Man 8

Ever Oasis is currently being worked on, and 2 others are lined up for the summer challenge, so should make progress on this in August.


2. Beat (or sell on) at least 1/3rd of unbeaten games I recieved as Christmas/Birthday presents prior to 2017.
Current progress: 5/12
List so far:
1. Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros.
2. The Legend of Zelda
3. Age of Empires: The Age of Kings (sold)
4. Shinobi X
5. Shinobi

No progress on this on this month either. Falling behind in this one!


3. Beat at least 1/3rd of games I've purchased at the London Retro Game Market to date.
Currently beaten: 7/12
List so far:
1. Little Nemo: The Dream Master
2. Legacy of the Wizard
3. Rhyme Rider Kerorican
4. Sonic Advance 3
5. Super Adventure Island
6. Crazy Taxi
7. Ecco: The Tides of Time

No progress this month, if I can get to ActRaiser for my summer list then I can take out one more.


4. Beat all the games I was challenged to beat in my 'challenge me' thread.
Currently beaten: 5/14

1. Dynamite Cop (Ack)
2. Rhythm Tengoku (Dunpeal)
3. Portal 2 (Noiseredux)
4. Shinobi (Gunstar Green)
5. Ecco: The Tides of Time (KeyGlyph)

No progress again (I didn't play much this month...), but 4 of them on my summer list (Jet Set Radio Future, ActRaiser, Fire Emblem 6, Shenmue 2). Fire Emblem 6 is almost done!


5. Participate in every Together Retro month to some extent.
So far:
January (Licensed Platformers): I beat Little Nemo, Batman and Mickey's Wild Adventure
February (Final Fantasy Spin-offs): I tried Kingdom Hearts and didn't like it, so I sold all the games in the series I owned.
March (80s Ladies Night): I beat Legacy of the Wizard, The Legend of Zelda and Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap. I've also started, but not finished Earthbound Beginnings.
April: I beat Shinobi X for Saturn and have started but not finished Wing Commander III for 3DO.
May: I didn't play this month, so I guess I failed this challenge, but I'll try to join in other months this year!
June: I finished Advance Guardian Heroes and Alien Storm
July: I played through Vertical Force

August plans: I'm definitely intending to get through Conker's Bad Fur Day, and I might also try and polish off Mickey's Speedway USA whilst I'm at it.


6. Beat one unbeaten game in every series I own at least 2 unbeaten games in.
List to beat + comments:
- Atelier
- Danganronpa
- Devil May Cry
- Donkey Kong Country
- Dragon Quest
- Earthbound- Done!
- Final Fantasy
- Fire Emblem
- Harvest Moon
- The Legend of Zelda - Done!
- Mario & Luigi - Done!
- Mario Golf
- Metal Gear Solid
- Rayman
- Resident Evil - Done!
- Shinobi Done x 2
- Sonic the Hedgehog - Done!
- Super Mario Bros.
- Valkyria Chronicles
- Wave Race
- Wonder Boy - Done!
- Ys
- Zero Escape[/i]



Buying games:
1. Beat 2 games to buy 1 new unbeaten game
I need to sit and work this one out, but I'm definitely behind on this so far.

2. Acquire 1 physical copy of a game I own on Virtual Console per month. These won't count towards rule 1 unless they're still unbeaten.
Jan: Winds of Thunder, Feb: Ufouria: The Saga. March & April: Donkey Kong Country 2 & Gunstar Heroes. May: DoReMi Fantasy. June: Mega Man 4. July: Secret of Mana.

3. Finish my collection of Rare titles for N64
Mission accomplished! I picked up Killer Instinct Gold and GoldenEye at the retro market in April, and Mickey's Speedway USA at the retro market in July.

4. Acquire at least 3 more games towards my collection of games by Treasure.
2 games so far - Gunstar Heroes and Advance Guardian Heroes. I'd quite like the 3rd one to be one of the big ticket items. Radiant Silvergun maybe?

Other:
1. Upgrade at least 1 of my consoles, preferably 2.
Still no progress here, but I'd like to get an AGS101 GBA as one of my options

I've been through tough times lately finding new games that fills the gap with the lack of immersion and lore to them. So i have given myself a goal this year to dig out my steam library for the old gems i might have missed, and find value in the old titles, do some achievements, maybe a few shorter 100% runs. You know, just for the general vibe we used to have long time ago, looking at the games differently. Now we change them as socks it seems so it dropped in value for me.

tldr Dig out steam library for some older titles and finish their achievements or get that completionist vibe again :mrgreen:

XBOX = Beat Shattered Union


Just two goals left!

I crossed off Dragon Warrior IV yesterday.

It may take me a bit to start up Shattered Union and that should give me sometime to hack away at getting under 60 Unfinished Games. I'm currently sitting at 63, so that shouldn't be too long.

- Played Mystic Quest during the FF spinoffs TR month, while it has great music nothing else really kept me going after the initial hours. This was the second time I've tried playing this so it's probably the last attempt.
- Played Dragon Quest III (SFC) and while gorgeous to look at, it had no characters/story... so no spark really caught my interest. I'll try another one some other time.
- Beat Gun Hazard, simply put this is my RetroGOTY so far.
- Beat Brain Lord, I have many issues with this one but otherwise I'm glad I played it.
- Beat Metroid 2 FINALLY with the power of a color hack and it was amazing, loved it.

While Dragon Quest III (SFC) didn't work for me earlier this year... Dragon Quest V (DS) did! Just knocked that one out.

September's done, we're 3/4s through the year!

My update for this month is not a lot has changed, so I'm spoilering it for space. Anyone else made any good progress on their goals?

Beating Bad News Baseball got me underneath 60 Unfinished Games for the first time ever! :mrgreen:

I just have one more and that is beating Shattered Union on the XBOX.
I had to buy a new console to get it to work, but I should be starting that very soon.

With Shattered Union, I have completed all of my Gaming Goals for 2018!!

It took a little while to get started on this, but once I did, I started knocking them down one by one.

Time to start work on Gaming Goals for 2019.
I intend to be moving next year and that will figure into some of my goals.
