5750 Achievements unlocked

Ok, so yesterday I joked in my gaming 2019 review, that I was 11 away from doing it, and could I get it before the end of the year.

Well after a little Fifa 20, Halo: Master Chief Collection and Forza Motorsport 6. I managed to get a few more than 11 and move past the milestone with days to spare.

Looking back, it was the 13th April 2019 that I hit the 5500 target and so I haven’t been playing a lot to acquire the additional 250. Approximately 31 per month, there are some LEGO games in there somewhere, LEGO Ninjago was 100% completed a little while ago. I think with a little more effort I could have reached it a while ago.

As I was playing back in April, Minecraft has also featured heavily in the gathering of achievements as tasks have been completed and games played through.

The below graphic, was my achievement completion percentage shown in the mid 2019 review post.

Percentage as of 14th June 2019

The completion percentage below is from today, you’ll notice that the percentage is down, this is despite me unlocking more I keep acquiring new games and am still playing catch up. Hovering around the same percentile marker.

Percentage as of 26th December 2019

I have games that I have recently acquired that I have not yet started, I’ll wait until 2020 and see how I can progress. I still have things to finish off, and I am sure that I can rapidly move towards the 6000 milestone.

Planning a little Assassins Creed 2020, I have a few games building up to be finished or started and they should distract me for a few days of play. Let me know if you are a fan of Assassins Creed and if so your favourite on of the series. I am playing them in a strange order but that is just due to the order that I got them.

Back again soon.

September 2019 update

Hi, I would like to say that I haven’t away, accomplishing great things.  But to honest I have been carrying on as before and getting lost in all the fun.

I have just forgotten to share all the exploits with you all.  I have played a few games as planned at the start of the year, and others are still sitting unplayed.

This is just the way that things can happen sometimes.  But the goal remains the same.  Play games, have fun, and pop some achievements along the way.

Catching up with the last few months, I have worked through Shadow of the Tomb Raider and am now playing again on the + mode.  The Assassins Creed collection grows and I have a number to play through, currently I am on Revelations and Origins.

Forza Horizon 4 gets the occasional play, but  I grabbed Forza 6 from games for gold and am playing that too.

Since the last post I have collected some more old games and this has enabled me to 100% completed another.  So LEGO Ninjago is now fully done and can go in the completed list.

Funnily enough, I have also had a couple of weeks back playing Minecraft recently and so there was a few pops there as I have missed a few updates through not playing.

Currently the game of choice is Gears of War 5, and my time will be taken as I work the game.

Still on the to do list are to many games to list, will do that in a separate post later maybe, but I was thinking about something earlier and will check the posts later to confirm.

Streaking fun

I try and put some thought into my ideas here, but I also get messages and prompts about the regularity of things I am doing so am I doing them to often?

I am currently on a streak of posts here, but more importantly I have started a little streak of Achievement gathering now.

With the 5 I have gathered today 3 in Minecraft, 1 in Anthem and 1 in Assassin’s Creed Revelations that takes it to 31 in the last 6 days, and that is without playing 24/7.  As you have probably gathered from my previous ramblings, those 31 come from 10 different games.

With the streak now fully started, I feel obliged to try and see how long I can keep it going for.  See if I can get any where near my best ones or maybe set a goal of 50 achievements and see how many days I can reach it in.  Then see where I go from there.

When I do reach that I will go past the 5500 Achievements unlocked mark which will be a nice little milestone to go past.  I am currently at 5486, so not far to go now.

I haven’t yet started anymore games so games played is still sitting at 300.

But by the end of the month, I would like ot have started Final Fantasy 7.  Maybe my trial of Anthem will have run out by then, and I might not have purchased it yet.  So a window of oppurtunity.

From the streak perspective, depending on how you look at it my longest so far was 33 days and I earned 141 Achievements.  Efficeincy wise my best was 17 days in which I earned 165 Achiements.  If I could have kept that one going then I would have been ok.

The 33 day streak was my introduction to Gears of War, and I play Gears 1, 2 and then 3 back to back.  It was a very good month.

The 17 day streak, was mostly unlocking Killer Instinct Achievements, and there is still a lot more of those to unlock and so I have just reinstalled it.

I want to earn at least another 109 Achiecements, and so if I can do it in this streak then I’ll improve on the above stats.  Let’s see how things go.

April 2019 – Xbox 360 play day

Ok, so I mentioned a need to run through some things yesterday.  What I didn’t plan was sitting down for the day playing Xbox 360 Games.

I’ve been playing, Call of Duty Black Ops, Assassin’s Creed Revelation and Burnout Paradise.

What I have also done, is as sort of planned for yesterday.  I’ve cleared some current games off of my Xbox One S and installed some of the mentioned games ready for some play sessions.

I have some other games on the Xbox One X, so I have choice if needed.

Burnout Paradise was the usual laugh, and it was good to cause mayhem with some takedowns on that again.

Some great memories of not to long ago, I keep thinking of installing Borderlands, but I know I wouldn’t play anything else.

I’ll be spending a lot more hours jumping between the 2 consoles as I decide which games to play when.

I do want to finish Black Ops as I have my eye on another of the CoD catalogue as it’s available, but don’t want to get until I have done at least playthrough of this game.  Should finish it this week.  I’ve put it off long enough.

Continued play

I managed to get on to Halo 5 this morning and although it is a bit of a cheat that you can pop 2 achievements without actually playing a game it still knocks them off the to do list whilst planning in the game time to work on some skull searching etc..

Then whilst playing a couple of games of Fifa 19 to pass some time I heard my Phone ping with Achievement.  Didn’t notice it come up on the screen but it was still a welcome surprise as I hadn’t really been looking for it.

The real achievement of the day (which isn’t even one) is that I am off the 0 count on Apex Legends, I now have 2 so still not anything to really celebrate, but hey.  I am not trying to, it is just a number after all.

I did a little research into my games earlier looking at what I need to sit down and play in order to improve my stats.  I worked out that I need to dedicate a few days to the Assassin’s Creeds, Bioshock and Alien Isolation.  The Assassin’s Creeds I refer to are 1, 3 and Revelations, all recently picked up and started and I need to finish them.

Bioshock, I picked up the collection over the festive period in the Microsoft sales, and I need to finish the 1st so I can start he others.

And, well, Alien Isolation is a great game that for some reason I just keep putting off playing.

One day I will catch up and all the games in my collection will finally be played.

The weekend so far…

So plans were made, games to play were mentioned. Not sure what happened but that is what happens. the main thing is progress towards a goal and that is how the weekend is shaping.

It hasn’t been a massive trolling haul, as I have been playing the games but so far I have earned 7 achievements across 5 games. But the night is still young.

The most impressive stat is when there is just a laughable amount of time between achievements earned, but again, as I’ve mentioned on previous posts. Sometimes I just stop playing for a little while and then go back.

pac-man_achievements

Don’t know why I put Pac-Man down for 13 years? But doesn’t time fly, and this is not uncommon with me and it is also not always my fault.  I shall explain further in a future post.

Games that I have earned achievements in so far today are; Forza Motorsport 7, Pac-Man (xbox 360) Battlefield 5, Assassin’s Creed Revelations (xbox 360) and Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2.

So a couple there that weren’t originally on the playlist yet somehow worked there way in to my agenda. But at the same time it ultimately knocked a handful off the hundreds that I am working towards, and I have been meaning to sit down and play Assassin’s Creed Revelations for about a year now.

I have also as mentioned begun tweaking the look of the site here and so if you’ve been here before or if your first time, let me know what you think.  I am thinking of upping the plan that I currently have, but I will see how things go first.  Before I start over customising.

Later tonight I will probably continue on with Assassin’s for a little to get myself into that story. Then moving on to something a little lighter, and if anything pops then that is just a bonus.

If I can earn at least a total of 10 achievements today, without stating a new game then it has been a reletively constructive day so far.  But I believe that I can get slightly more than that to pop and so we’ll see.
