Some really nice quick progress for a change!
Loaded up FIFA 09 for the first time since January, and loaded my Manager Mode game as my beloved Accrington Stanley. First fixture was a FA Cup round 1 match against Shrewsbury. As I was trying for the achievement, I wasn't playing my best
(honest), but I grinded out a 2-1 win.
Next came Aldershot in the league, and on the 37th minute, John Mullin puts a beautiful through ball to Bobby Grant, who has only the keeper to beat....the ball sails past the keeper, I hear a nice clunk, followed by this popping up on the screen:

And it remained 1-0 until full time. Happy days! So now, the focus once again shifts onto a different game, and this is achievement #4 on the list:
I really enjoy playing Saints Row, but for some reason I haven't played nearly enough as I should have done. Los Carnales, prepare to die in many ways that shall satisfy my humour. Might even run over a pensioner or two, cause you know, it's OK in the row.
Quickish Gears 3 update as well, whilst playing a bit of Campaign I unlocked this achievement:
All 31 chapters, on a mixture of Normal and Hardcore difficulty, done by myself and a plugged in second controller because I don't have any mates. FOREVER ALONE.
In addition to the achievement, I racked up two new medals as well:
Squad Leader - Silver
Big Money - Silver
I really enjoy Horde 2.0. But getting all those waves cleared is gonna be a bit of a pain in the arse.
Rounding of this session, England were once again(!) knocked out on penalties in a major tournament. We really need to break this hoodoo, preferably by learning how to beat a decent team within 90 minutes. One day, I'll be an old man with heart problems, and I could barely stand this now! I've always said football would be the death of me....(combined with alcohol and cigarettes)
Until next time, enjoy your gaming
