Another week has flown by, and progress in regards to my Gamerscore goal has been slim. More time went into LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. I also started Sea of Thieves, which will be a long and difficult completion.

In regards to LEGO, I need to complete two more levels fully, which should see the base game completed. I haven't decided yet if I will pick up the DLC, but with Far Cry 5 arriving tomorrow, I am in no rush.

I also began Sea of Thieves, which has had a few issues due to the sheer amount of people playing the game. Rare have been up front on the issues and are actively communicating with the community to keep them in the loop. For example, achievements are disabled until the next patch this week, which was to help with some server side issues regarding notifications. I have enjoyed what I have played so far, minus a run in or two with some other crews, mainly attacking at outposts, which can spoil the experience when the spawns are camped.

Finally, I have changed the list slightly. Initially, I had listed Sea of Thieves in the New Game section. A friend has pointed out to me that I only have access to it whilst my game pass subscription is live, which currently has 5 months left. I still want it on my list, so I made the Extra Games section. The games in this section will not be required for the list to be finished. It also frees up a new game slot, which I will have to give some thought to.

This week should see some Sea of Thieves and Far Cry 5. I will also finish LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2.

The past week has been spent on a mixture of Assassins Creed Origins, Super Luckys Tale and LEGO Super Marvel Heroes 2. I intended to work on Fable Anniversary, however the game seemed to hang on loading screens for quite a long time and require restarts to fix it.

The Curse of the Pharaohs was a fun DLC which felt worth the asking price, adding around 10 hours or so to the game.

Time also went into Super Luckys Tale, which also saw DLC and a title update. I haven't started the title update yet, but the dlc is one achievement away from being complete. I am struggling to beat the boss without being hit, but I will keep working on it with breaks in between.

Due to Fable not working all the time, I started LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, which is currently sitting at 42% complete. LEGO tends to be a good game for when you need achievements backed up to help keep the streak going, which will come in handy when Sea of Thieves comes out tomorrow.

The plan this week will be a simple one, begin the pirate adventure.

1. Aven Colony Achievements - 0/48
2. Darksiders Warmastered Edition Achievements - 6/43

After spending most of the week on Dynasty Warriors 9 again, I can report that it is the sixth completion from the list. Completing all of the battles meant repeating a few stories which hadn't counted for some reason. For example, replaying a chapter with Cao Cao again somehow gave a mission which I hadn't seen the first time around.

A huge thanks to CompanyofWolves for helping me get the Hell on Earth difficulty on Killing Floor 2, it proved to be quite a challenge, but it is now done. All that remains is the grind for level 25 which will be obtained soon.

With a week left to Sea of Thieves, I have opted to work on Fable Anniversary to pass the time. This will also help get more work done on the list. I haven't played much yet, but I am looking forward to it, as it is the only Fable game I hadn't played.

More progress has gone onto Gems of War. I have finished the latest title update, which now leaves two achievements, one for crafting Xanathos and the other for reaching level 500. Both will be a grind, it is hard to put a rough time frame on it due to the materials needed.

The plan this week will be to work on Fable Anniversary, Killing Floor 2 and wrap up another short game to clear more hard drive space.

1. Aven Colony Achievements - 0/48
2. Darksiders Warmastered Edition Achievements - 6/43

Permalink2018 Mix Bag #10 - Pushing for the 6th Completion
Most of the past week was dedicated to a mix of Gems of War and Dynasty Warriors 9. In regards to Gems of War, I got the stupidly luck based treasure vault done. All that remains is to destroy 50 towers in the invasion this week, of which I am on 29. Then it will be grind to level 500 and craft Xathenos. I am looking forward to the game being completed, as it has been a lot of hard work, not to mention dealing with less than ideal systems, such as raid and invasion. Bring back the weekly guild wars, they were actually fun.

As for Dynasty Warriors 9, I finished the Wei, Shu and Wu story achievements. I am currently working on another Shu character to unlock all of the chapters, at which point I will work on Jin. I am on 60,000 kills of the 100,000. There is also the battle entries to unlock, most of which should come easily enough by completing the stories.

The hope is to get Dynasty Warriors 9 finished before Sea of Thieves launches, however I will also be putting more time into Killing Floor 2 with CompanyofWolves, which we are also hoping to have finished by then. I also picked up the Super Luckys Tale DLC, which I am hoping will be as fun as the base game was.

Permalink2018 Mix Bag #09 - Wei of the Gems
Another week has flown by, which has seen more progress in Dynasty Warriors 9 and Gems of War.

Dynasty Warriors 9 is slow going currently, but this is largely due to it taking place on a massive open world. As such, I find myself going away from the missions and exploring the world. I am currently on chapter 5 of the Wei story, purposefully getting around 3000+ kills per chapter to keep the flow going.

I have also put more time into Gems of War, which has had more achievements added. Some of these have potential to be horrible, much like other achievements in the game. The raid boss achievement has been done now, as for the Invasion, that requires waiting for the event to be live. Finally there is the treasure gnome aspect, which requires getting lucky to have one appear in a fight, then get lucky again by killing it and hoping you get the correct loot.

There isn't too much more to report this week, apart from saying well done to LizardKingLXXXI for the successful charity live stream over the weekend.

This week should see more Dynasty Warriors 9 progress. I may also work on another title on the list at the same time to keep the list on track for 2 completions a month. Currently I am just ahead of schedule, but March will need another crossed off.
