2017 Steam Gaming Vol 9: What Now?
Since my last blog post, I was eliminated from GTASC and then barely used my Xbox for a week.

Related? Probably. Sign of things to come? Certainly hope not.

It was probably healthy to take a step back but I enjoyed my achievement run since Early-Jan. Now with GTASC over - my goals are more straightforward. Play for fun and work thru my sizable backlog. I'm not chasing anything per se - but would like to keep some of the momentum I built. That said - with a new PS4 sitting in my entertainment center (I need to check out their exclusives for myself) and baseball season starting I may not play as often as I did the first 3 months of the year.

My Xbox goals for 2017
*Completion percentage at 33%
COMPLETED *Play 500 games
*Reach 125k in Gamerscore
MODIFIED but FAILED *Stay in GTASC until I reach the final 500
*Position of 500th or better on Ohio TrueAchievement Leaderboard for All Games
COMPLETED *50 Day Achievement Streak or more

Current Stats:
TrueAchievement Score - 164466 ---> 165174 (+708)
Gamerscore - 115868 ---> 116408 (+540
Achievement Total - 6431 ---> 6462 (+31)
Games Played - 519 ---> 520 (+1)
Ohio TrueAchievement Leaderboard for All Games- 512th ---> 502nd (+10)
Completion Percentage: 31.14 ---> 31.21 (+0.07%)

Almost there for my Ohio-based goal. That's the immediate focus heading into April. Without any contest (well until UHH - and even during) my intention is to work more on my to-do list and just play story-based games and achievements will come. Additionally, I plan to talk about the games I've played a little more in depth in this blogspace and see where that takes us...

As for the to-do list... only 1 and that was from FIFA during the last week I was in GTASC.

Games currently in the to-do list:

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Fallout 4
FIFA 17
Final Fantasy XV
Far Cry 3
Rise of the Tomb Raider
SMITE
Sunset Overdrive
The LEGO Movie Videogame
Titanfall 2

2017 Xbox Gaming VOL8: Streaks & Decay
GTASC is consuming my achievement decision-making and the longest consecutive TA streak of mine comes to end.

Those are the highlights this time around. Let's start with Minecraft as its high ratio achievements are a double edge sword for the me the last few weeks but after last night I believe I have most of what I'm likely to get. Definitely not looking forward to the next decay wave surely to hit. Free-to-play titles such as Clicker Heroes and Fallout Shelter are at a stage for me where the low-hanging sweet achievement fruit has already been picked. All of which - lead me this week to probably to have to play some "proper" games.

My Xbox goals for 2017
*Completion percentage at 33%
COMPLETED *Play 500 games
*Reach 125k in Gamerscore
MODIFIED *Stay in GTASC until I reach the final 500
*Position of 500th or better on Ohio TrueAchievement Leaderboard for All Games
COMPLETED *50 Day Achievement Streak or more

Current Stats:
TrueAchievement Score - 160875 --->164466 (+3591)
Gamerscore - 114402 ---> 115868 (+1466)
Achievement Total - 6361 ---> 6431 (+70)
Games Played - 514 ---> 519 (+5)
Ohio TrueAchievement Leaderboard for All Games- 512th ---> ??? (Leaderboards Are Down)
Completion Percentage: 31.11 ---> 31.14 (+0.03%)
Current Consecutive Streak: Ended @ 57 days

More of everything except I'm not sure on the Ohio leaderboard progress but we'll find when the site leaderboards come back soon. All of my 2017 - except completion percentage really seem within reach. I've also modified my GTASC goal to be more realistic - I would like to survive 2 more periods and reach the final 500. I would be more than okay with that goal.

As for the to-do list... there were a handful of unlocks when I played Final Fantasy for a couple hours and a match or three of SMITE. I know I say every blog I plan to focus to the list but that really hasn't happened during GTASC...

Games currently in the to-do list:

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Fallout 4
FIFA 17
Final Fantasy XV
Far Cry 3
Rise of the Tomb Raider
SMITE
Sunset Overdrive
The LEGO Movie Videogame
Titanfall 2

2017 Xbox Gaming VOL7: Staying Focus
We are barely into the third month of 2017 and this year is shaping up to being a memorable one in video games. So many good titles - its hard to sink your teeth into one before another catches your eye. And if you consider other systems (its a big world out there people - room enough for multiple systems) that pool of stellar games grows even larger.

Since the last blog post, I've tried my best to continue what I've started but I could not resist the lure of Torment: Tides of Numenera which I plan to play a little more of tonight after writing this post. In addition, I did pick up a few other titles on sale recently.

My Xbox goals for 2017
*Completion percentage at 33%
COMPLETED *Play 500 games
*Reach 125k in Gamerscore
*Stay in GTASC until the summer
*Position of 500th or better on Ohio TrueAchievement Leaderboard for All Games
*Only buy additional games on sale
*50 Day Achievement Streak or more

Current Stats:
TrueAchievement Score - 158944 ---> 160875 (+1931)
Gamerscore - 113622 ---> 114402 (+780)
Achievement Total - 6329 ---> 6361 (+32)
Games Played - 512 ---> 514 (+2)
Ohio TrueAchievement Leaderboard for All Games- 526th --->512th (+14 places)
Completion Percentage: 31.10 ---> 31.11 (+0.01%)
Current Consecutive Streak: 47 days

The streak is closing in on my stated goal of 50. Stay on target. And a nice jump in my Ohio related achievement which prompted me to track some genres within the overall and likely will become a focus in the near future

As for the to-do list... zero progress but I did replace Tom Clancy's The Division with Fallout 4 thanks in large part to my daily check in with Fallout Shelter.

Games currently in the to-do list:

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Fallout 4
FIFA 17
Final Fantasy XV
Far Cry 3
Rise of the Tomb Raider
SMITE
Sunset Overdrive
The LEGO Movie Videogame
Titanfall 2

I'm trying the gamepass for the trial to see how I like it, I mean tons of games I wouldn't buy normally and I am not a completionist so I am not worried about popping
