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.

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.
