April 2019 gaming begins

I believe that a few posts back I set myself some small goals.  And to be honest I haven’t a clue if I have stuck to them or not.

All I know is that I have been progressing well with Shadow of the Tomb Raider, even managed to stream for over an hour whilst playing and so that was a good step in the direction I am aiming.

On top of playing Tomb Raider, I continue with The Division 2.  I am just starting out on this and so I haven’t got to far as yet.

As a bit of a jump back, I have begun playing Fifa 19 again and the Achievements have again been popping whilst I play some FUT.  It is always a great pick up and play game.

Another game that I have recently picked up again is Trials Fusion, I have progressed further with this and collected more medals.  An Achievement popped here too which was a pleasant bonus.

Couldn’t wait for the Games for Gold this Month, Star Wars Battlefront 2 from the Xbox Original.  What a classic, instant install and play.  So many memories.

I have also reached a new milestone on TrueAchievements, in that I have played my 300th game.  The game was Anthem as I am currently using an EA Access 10 hour trial to see how it looks.

I normally like BioWare games such as the Dragon Age and Mass Effect Series’ and this could be interesting depending on the reviews I have read.  So far it appears ok, and something that I can see me playing more than 10 hours of.

There was even a little time to catch up with Overwatch today.

Another game that I payed again today was Call of Duty Black Ops (I will finish this game), I continue my way through the campaign every now and then when it suits me.

You might of guessed by now that I can sometimes play a number of games in one day, this is not anything bad.  Sometimes, it is just a need to change the scene.  I can also very easily immerse myself into a marathon sessions.  I think that might be why I now try and break it up a little.

But these are all Achievements that I am checking off of the goal I mentioned I think on one of my earlier posts.  It is why I have searched through my list of played games looking for ones that I didn’t play for long or something.

Then as the games become backward compatible I am picking them up and playing through them, as well as playing new games so time is prioritised chaotically.

I am getting there though, a couple of games on the agenda this month(ish).  I am currently reinstalling Halo 5 and that will take a while as it is rather a large game.  Then I plan on playing a few days of Halo, never an unfortunate task.  I can get Spartan Ops from Master Chief Collection completed, then run a few achievement popping sessions on Halo 5 and clean up the month.

I’ll keep you posted.

Weekend Play

Hi, you will probably have seen that some of my stream titles on Mixer have the simple title “weekend play”.  These sessions are exactly what they say, although the Achievement popping that goes with them is the added bonus.  So maybe I should change the title to “weekend achievement session”?

But, as you know, some of can take a little longer and more gameplay than others and so general play is requiered to reach the goal.

Last night I was streaming when I had the “Point Leader” Achievement pop on NHL 15, another one of those that I have been slowly working towards over recent weeks.  It’s a game I noticed I only had 1 achievement on and so I aquired it from the EA Access Vault and am now raising my completion of the game.

Another game that I am working through from the Vault is Star Wars Battlefront, so seeing what I can pick up there.  Though not many people for Multiplayer?

So far this weekend I have been spending the hours on a number of different games as well as ensuring that my Laptop is up to date with insider builds.

My Alienware has been with me since 2013 and is still doing well, upped the memory to 24Gb, and changed from Windows 8 to Windows 10.  But as mentioned on my previous post, I do think that there are minor issues that need addressing in terms of ability for streaming.

Anyway, back to weekend play, I am nearing another milestone in the world of Achievement collection.

See you online.
