Beans, Eggs and Sand
Today's blog is a multi-part affair, covering a few topics that are on my mind right now. It is not, as the title might seem to suggest, about enjoying breakfast burritos in sunny AZ. Of course, I could write plenty on that topic as well. smile

  • Stats and Leaderboards
Apparently I Like Sandbox GamesApparently I Like Sandbox Games
I was pretty surprised recently to discover that I'm very high up on the TA Leaderboards for Sandbox games. I'm #1 in AZ, #30 in the U.S. and #77 worldwide.

In hindsight I suppose it makes sense. I enjoy a lot of Sandbox franchises (Assassins Creed Series, Dead Rising Series, Saints Row Series, etc.). I'm a fanatical completionist. And I've developed an affinity for stacking achievements for games I've enjoyed ... many of which are Sandbox games.

I guess the big surprise for me was that there aren't hundreds of other people who already consciously decided to dominate that particular niche and that I somehow wound up in the Top 100 without actively trying to do so. Now that I know I'm up here, I suppose I'll take a closer look at Sandbox games as I continue to work on my backlog.

Meanwhile, my stats of choice have always been completion % and completed titles. I'm happy that after a little push this past weekend I've cracked the Top 350 again for completed games. My completion %, however, is still "wrecked" from my Bean Dive. Which brings me to my next topic....

  • Bean Dive Recovery
I went a little overboard with my Dive (pun not intended, but hey, it works...). I started 50 titles. This past weekend I hit an important milestone: half of those titles are now complete. My completion % is north of 95% again, but I have a lot of work left to push it back to peak territory.

The highlight of my journey so far is probably finishing Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (hey, a Sandbox game!). It was one of the longer games I dove, and the multiplayer is annoying; it's a little extra-satisfying that I don't have to spend any more time on it.

The lowlight is certainly getting burned on Netflix. After going out of my way to avoid even accidentally launching that app because of the (previously-) glitched achievements for rating titles, I decided to include it in my Dive now that it was completable. Because I didn't really trust app achievements in general and Netflix specifically, I made a point to go after that completion immediately. And I almost made it. Unfortunately, the summer update broke Netflix before I hit my 30-day streak, leaving one last achievement in limbo: angry

I'm currently working on my 4th and final stack for Saints Row IV: Saints Row IV: Re-Elected (AU) (hey, another Sandbox game!). My current focus is to clear out MP achievements and work on stuff on the Xbox One platform so that later, when my Kinect adapter shows up, Tubey can work on Xbox Fitness while I work on 360 stuff.

  • Zombies Easter Eggs Have Gotten Ridiculous
Outside of Bean Recovery, I'm once again attempting to salvage my completion for Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The zombies achievements have really gotten out of hand. There are so many steps now, and so much potential for one thing going wrong to blow a whole run that it's just not much fun anymore.

How to Complete the Latest COD Zombies Easter EggHow to Complete the Latest COD Zombies Easter Egg

I'm working on the 3rd DLC map (Gorod Krovi), and have just about learned my way around, so I finally took a look at the steps for the Egg. They're a mess: a bunch of setup to get two power weapons so you can obtain a set of collectibles that let you do a series of 6 challenges (advancing the level between each) all so you can do two back-to-back boss fights. Ugh!

And don't even ask me what's going on with the "story" anymore. It feels more forced than when Mortal Kombat tried to establish an excuse for itself with a bunch of single-paragraph character backstories (and dumb as that was, they managed to spin it into something much more coherent and interesting than whatever the zombies storyline is about now). At this point I'm just looking forward to mopping up the rest of what this game throws at me, then never playing another COD game again.

Apparently if you reload the hub with your main instrument it might work. The individual badge achievement is apparently broken too.
