Platinum Challenge Update

Platinum Challenge

Depending on how closely you paid attention to our first podcast, you may have heard that our staff currently has a video game challenge taking place. Well, I’m here to give you a few more details on what exactly it entails.

The concept is simple. We’re racing to platinum two of the top games from 2015, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Batman: Arkham Knight, as well as the yet to be released Ubisoft game, Far Cry: Primal. The rules are simple as well.  The first person to platinum a game gets 5 points, the second person to platinum gets 3, and the third person gets no points. This is applicable for each game. In the event of a tie after the three games (this won’t happen, but we have to have it in place), the challengers will compete for a fourth platinum to be determined.

These are the percentages as of Valentine’s Day 2016:


Batman: Arkham Knight- 4%

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt- 70%

Far Cry: Primal- N/A



Batman: Arkham Knight- 8%

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt- 81%

Far Cry: Primal- N/A



Batman: Arkham Knight- 61%

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt- 57%

Far Cry: Primal- N/A


It’s obvious that Thomas has a large lead on Batman, while Kyle and Colten are duking it out for the top Witcher spot. The clear swing game is going to be Far Cry: Primal and it’ll be interesting to track everyone’s progress once the game is released.

So that’s the challenge. Any questions or suggestions can be sent to us at @lmblog1 on Twitter or Laconic Mnemonic on Facebook. You can also talk to any of the guys on Twitter.
