5500 Xbox Achievements Unlocked

So, I could have reached this target a couple of years ago probably if I had played a lot more and a few more things had gone my way.  Then I wouldn’t be going back and replaying games the way I am, not that I am not enjoying that as there are always a few to keep in the locker for rainy days.

After a week of popping a few here and there and chipping away at the target, I decided to reinstall Killer Instinct and play through Survial Mode with a few more characters unlocking the achievements for that and the ones that you can normally pop along the way.  This was 2 or 3 per character that I’ve done so far, then after doing this and funnily enough fancying a change of game I loaded up Anthem for a bit, then Minecraft.

So the Milestone Achievement was “Iron Belly”, quite fitting really for a day of play and achievement popping, not that I will now “Stop starvation using Rotten Flesh”.  I will snack and refresh suitably before starting towards the next target.

I did earlier stream a little weekend drive on Forza Horizon 4 on Mixer so check it out and follow me there as I start to share my adventures more.

In total over the last 8 days during this streak i am on I have now unlocked 47 Achievements from 11 Games, these are;

  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • Tom Clancy’s The Division 2
  • Anthem
  • Fifa 19
  • Call of Duty Black Ops
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations
  • Burnout Paradise
  • Minecraft
  • Killer Instinct
  • Halo 5
  • Trials Fusion

So if I haven’t mentioned any of the above recently, then you can see what I have managed to unlock Achievements in.  I’ve played many other games too as you may have seen.

A couple of the above I am curently playing through and so more to do, the rest is just for fun.

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.

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.

This weeks adventures

I am still getting to grips with this, and those few words might start a few of these posts.  What should improve is the content that flows after.

A reasonable amount of uninterrupted gameplay was enjoyed over the weekend with the occasional pop heard.

Thinking of changing my Xbox profile colour from Red, I’ve had that for a few years now and I think it’s time to look at options.

Still haven’t started Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but if you’ve read any of my previous blogs then you’ll see that I have been hopping back and forth with planned games and played games that I didn’t intend and unlocked achievements I didn’t expect so all good.

In the last 2 days, I’ve unlocked 15 achievements in 9 games so the tidy up is going rather well I think and my percentage is moving in the right direction.  I think I have enough of a cushion to start a new game and not drop to far back the other way.

I am going to restart Call of Duty Black Ops soon, just so I can complete it and know how the game plays through.  Then, I will spend the time doing it on Veteran.

Over the weekend I went to look at my saved progress on Halo Master Chief Collection and noticed that it wasn’t there?  So before I play again (happy to) I will be checking achievement unlocks to see which Spartan op is the next one that I need to do.

Once I have finished those, I plan on finally starting on the cross game playlist achievements.  Theres a few others that should be finished off whilst completing these as well.

On the side, I am compiling the wish list for 2019 as the games start coming out.  There are a few I have my eye on and so look forward to spending time playing this year, having spent 2018 catching up on The Division, I am looking for ward to The Division 2.  Anything in particular that you are keeping an eye out for?  Let me know.

Gaming plans – end of January 2019

Hi, just planning what I want to spend time on as we approach the final part on the month.

Firstly, I aim to reach level 25 on Overwatch, it’s not that I am slow, I could do it quicker, I just don’t live on it.  Should reach that little target this week.

There is some tidying up to do on Mass Effect Andromeda, so I will keep playing that.  Or now that I have finished, I may start a new playthough and try and do it a little more complete.

I am just getting started really on Forza Horizon 4 and progress is good, at the same time I hop over to Forza Motorsport 7 and complete a few races.

Really need to get past my roadblock on Call of Duty Black Ops (1), I picked it up again now it’s backward compatible and have been playing on Veteran to contiue my old path, but have never gotten past a certain point, try try again.

At some point I will be sitting down and really starting to play Grand Theft Auto 5, I hear it’s good?

On top of this I have just started playing Titanfall again, really is a great pick up and play game.

Moving into February I aim to get back on Halo Master Chief Collection and complete the Spartan Ops missions.

The Achievement hunting session continues.

Maybe I will see a few people online.
