2016 Completion Challenge #42 - Mafia 3 and Gears of War 4
There will be no sugar coating it, there is still no progress on this list. Instead, I have been focusing on Mafia 3 and Gears of War 4, mixed with a bit of a return to Forza Horizon 3.
Mafia 3 has been fun so far. Like a lot of games these days, there are some draw backs, however I have been able to overlook these, such as slight graphical issues. There is a lot of back and forth to the bayou for optional side objectives which will increase your gain in various rackets. It will also require at least two play-throughs to obtain all achievements.
Gears of War 4 has also proven to be a decent story so far, although I can't help but feel it doesn't quite match up to the original story. Enemy AI has an annoying habit of jumping over cover and constantly punching you, trapping you until they finish you off. Sadly, the fortifications are almost useless in horde mode, due to how little ammo there is in the turrets and the fact that enemies don't go through the gaps between cover, they just go over them, making spikes largely useless.
The biggest issue though is the greed of Rod Fergusson, as he takes pride in the card system. To realistically get the crates, you either quite a bit of time into the online, or buy them with real money. This wouldn't be bad on its own, games like Halo 5 and Overwatch have affordable crates. The problem stems from Gears of War 4 also having a season pass, costing £40, almost the same price as the game itself.
As far as achievements go, Gears of War 4 will most likely be the least completed, as so much of it requires access to better cards to get through horde. Horde mode got changed in a bad way, even on casual the enemies have high health and damage. Most recently the game had a double xp weekend event, however this seemed to not go live at all.
I will attempt to pull myself from these two games to give the completion challenge a bit of attention once again.
1. Diablo III
2. Foul Play
3. Halo 5: Guardians
4. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
5. Resident Evil Revelations 2
6. Rise of the Tomb Raider
7. Zoo Tycoon
1. Rebel Galaxy
2. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
