Occasionally as you know games have updates released, which have new achievements added to be unlocked. What I always find a welcome suprise is when simply loading the game makes things go a little popping mad due to the achievement criteria already been reached.
This was a few months ago now, but it was still funny when it happened.
This obviously doesn’t mean that I don’t spend time playing the game, sometimes it is the way I find out about the update.
There are a number of achievements that I am waiting to unlock, and some of this I believe is down to the fact that I spend a lot of time jumping between 2 consoles and the save files have trouble syncing occassionally.
One such pop happened last night whilst I was checking out the last update for Rocket league.
As soon as the game was loading I turned and heard a pop. It must have just been stuck unlocking and having not played for a couple of months helped 🙂
I might need to install and load a few more games like this to see if anything else pops. If not then It is always good to have a playthrough on a classic. I was having a little play on Age of Booty earlier, just for a few minutes to have a bit of a laugh.
Well, off to try and earn a few more before the weekend is over. Closing in on a couple of goals that I have set myself.
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.
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.
Evening, still getting used to this and amazed that I get these little prompts from WordPress about streaks? What are these if not Achievement earning related, am I giving up game time to compose a small note here?
I haven’t had a chance to turn the xbox on for a couple of days admittedly due to other things getting in the way, but I’ll be on Overwatch as soon as this is published to ensure I continue crawling towards that goal.
It will also give me the chance to see if any updates have installed during the past 2 days.
Following yesterdays blog post, I started compiling what I want to ensure that I dedicate time to in February, we can look into that further later.
I have essentially had as much of an unplug as I allow myself, allow the xbox to cool down for a few hours before setting up a some sessions to get things cleared.
I need to have a look over the options at the weekend and maybe give the blog a bit of a better look, as I haven’t really had the chance to play with that yet.
Let me know what you think.
I will stream often, so follow me on Mixer the support is appreciated. Eventually I’ll pick up a headset and join the chat. Nothing personal, just haven’t replaced one that just broke due to age and wear a while ago and got used to playing without it. But I normally have the chat box open.
Do suggest games, I am always on the look out for somethig to play, my favourites are pick up and play’s and that is whay I actually love the “xbox acarde” games from the 360 days, Trials HD was great for a quick couple of minutes if that’s all you had. And I can still play it as backwards compatible.
Well, off to play Overwatch.
