It took several buff potions and a few hundred platforms, but I finally managed to beat Skeletron Prime in Terraria. Not only that, but I did it fast enough that, if I'd prepared more potions, I probably could have done it twice in one night.
Just completed the Test of the Wild in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor with all secondary objectives, to gain the last achievement I needed to finish the game off for good.
Luckily, I found a guide which had an easy-to-replicate and reliable method, but still finished by the skin of my teeth.
Another one for Terraria: I finally got the Ankh Charm, and promptly used it to craft the Ankh Shield.
Completed both Priest endings in Cultist Simulator.
Won my first game of Civilization IV as Victoria with a Space Race victory.
Just got every trophy on Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.
Got the CTR tokens for Crash Cove, Roo's Tubes and (ugh) Sewer Speedway, which I still can't master the shortcut on. I managed to get it once - ONCE - and even then it was a fluke! Am I thinking about it too much?
No, the physics are legitimately weird there. I know there’s a way to consistently access the Sewer Speedway shortcut, but what that way is seems to be unintuitive, for lack of a more detailed description.
Recently beat Super Mario Odyssey and Pokemon Black.
Bit late on this, but a week or so ago I finally got all the Platinum Relics in Adventure Mode on CTR: Nitro-Fueled. And, oh lordy, is it hard.
Building on the earlier mention of Sewer Speedway's shortcut, that one bloody tunnel is half the reason why Sewer Speedway is the toughest track in Adventure Mode to earn a Platinum Relic on. I must have attempted that Relic Race at least 100 times - I lost count around attempt #12 or so - and 50% of the time I had to restart because I couldn't jump into that tunnel properly, forcing me to drive through that first section of the track over and over and over...
And on the rare occasion I did nail it, I'd either be screwed over by getting squashed by one of the rolling barrels, which slows you down to a snail's pace and costs precious seconds you cannot afford to waste, or I'd miss one of the three crates floating off the final jump at the end of the track - it's a one-way jump, so you have one opportunity per race to get each crate. On more than one occasion I did everything perfectly but had to restart just because I missed one of those damn crates. :/
That being said, I think it's a toss-up as to whether the Relic Race or N. Tropy's time trial is harder on this track, since N. Tropy forces you to jump into that bloody tunnel twice to keep up with him. Speaking of which, I managed to beat all of those, too - they were much easier, with the glaring exception of Oxide Station's time, where you have to drive impossibly fast just to unlock his ghost, and then you have to beat that. In general, those courses which force you to maintain a blue boost for any length of time, while driving at breakneck speed, in order to beat the time trial is pretty tricky - standout examples being Oxide Station, Deep Sea Driving and Tiny Temple.
Well, now all I have to do is beat Nitros Oxide's times. Hoooo boy...
I managed to beat Plantera in Terraria. I'm gonna have to get some better weapons and face her again, though - I'm playing a summoner, and I need the Pygmy Staff she sometimes drops to get the next set of summoning armor.
Beat the July 14, 2019 level in Creeper World Evermore without any blasters or mortars.
This was probably the single hardest Evermore level I've ever beaten, or even attempted. Normally I play under a self-imposed restriction to (1) never move Odin City, and (2) use no blasters or mortars (that is, all creeper-killing has to be done using bombers). The bombers are surprisingly effective, and most levels are straightforward to win with these restrictions; indeed, most of the time I see little difference between the difficulty of a level using all weapons and the difficulty of the same level using only bombers. But there are a few levels that are very difficult. I've encountered levels before where I was barely able to scrape out a win using all weapons, but unable to win using bombers. Other levels are winnable with only bombers (and SAMs, when necessary) but require very specific opening strategies to balance defense and energy generation. Some levels seem completely impossible if Odin City remains in place, but are easy if Odin City is quickly moved to safety.
July 14, 2019 is a ridiculously hard level. Although Odin City is elevated and safe from immediate creeper attack, the amount of building space around it is very low, and all the other parts of the map where it can be landed are covered in creeper very quickly. (The small islands to the west and east have no open space large enough to land it on.) Nevertheless, I was able to develop a strategy for beating it with the use of no weapons other than drones, although it took me almost 48 minutes out of the allotted 60. I recommend any Creeper World fans to give this one a try and see if they can outsmart the creeper. (July 19 is also tough, requiring me to restart several times and play very precisely, but I managed to beat it without blasters/mortars using only the regular techniques; whereas July 14 is, I think, uniquely challenging among all the Evermore levels I've ever won.)
I beat Inner Agent 3 in Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion. I hadn't tried beating him in a while and thought I'd spend some time giving it a try... and I won pretty much out of nowhere. I guess all that practice I got during the final Splatfest paid off.
Finally got all of the achievements in Return Of The Obra Dinn.
All but one CTR token get! I'll give Cortex Castle another shot tomorrow. Too pissed off at it rn.
Managed to beat Duke Fishron in Terraria. It was a somewhat difficult but surprisingly quick fight. I seem to have terrible luck with drops, though. The Flairon isn't bad by any means, but my character is a mage/summoner build, so I'll have to catch some more Truffle Worms and do it again for something I can make better use of.
EndWar: finished completing the campaign with every Spetznaz Guard Brigade.
Finishing with the Alpha Brigade, I decided to mix things up a little and go for maximum lethality, deliberately killing incapacitated enemy units and pushing forward to trigger DEFCON whenever I could. Result: 158 enemy squads killed instead of incapacitated. Campaign ended with a capital victory after 34 turns where the US and Russia meatgrindered the Federation between each other until they got so exhausted that their last four territories fell in the same turn, then the Alpha Brigade invaded the US, attacked and occupied Washington which provoked a US response - except the Brigade, finest of the sons and daughters of Mother Russia, promptly pulled off an epic Hail Mary by invading the British Isles, breaking through the local US occupation forces, launching an all-out assault on Paris and breaking the city's final defenses just as the US retaliation force that chased them across the Atlantic finished retaking the British Isles and caught up with them, leaving them surrounded on all sides but still victorious.
I'm not kidding: taking a capital territory requires three successive victories and I had exactly three territories between me and the US when I started the siege (since I had the foresight of grabbing Ireland while I was in the area), with the territory I was attacking from falling on the very same turn I won the third assault. One battle earlier and I would've been forced to start over once I fought my way back through Germany but with this, I won the campaign on the spot in an epic finale.
I would've liked to be a fly on the wall when the American commanders realized what just happened.
All gem cups done! Now I just need... ugh... the relics.
Completed Edelgard's route in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
Completed both the main campaign and all side missions in Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
Finally opened a luggage (with my sister's help) in Find the Differences - Her Secret, and I found a bowtie as a clue.
Managed gold on Prehistoric Playground yesterday. I was literally twenty goddamn milliseconds off the platinum time! I'm so mad!
Got a score of 23430 (out of a possible 25000) in Geoguessr with a 4-minute limit in each round.
Also got a score of 24996 without a timer, which is the closest I've ever gotten to a perfect game.
I finally managed to beat the Moon Lord solo in Terraria! He utterly decimated my NPCs, though. Perhaps I should have moved the nurse over by my Destroyer arena instead of mirroring back to spawn mid-fight. At least now I know for next time.
Completed the Silver Snow route of Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
Killed the Chameleon Elusive Target in Hitman 2.
