Permalink2019 Completion Challenge #26 - The Progress Begins Again
Another week has flown by, seeing progress on both consoles and the list.

First up is the progress for the list. I got back onto Farm Together, mainly due to the fact it is based on real time, so I thought it best to get back on track with it. It also received an update recently, which added more achievements. This has been started and is the source of most of the achievements earnt. There is a long way to go for some of the remaining achievements, namely the expansions, which apparently requires level 70, putting me halfway towards it. There are also some grindy ones, which can be made a bit quicker by deleting and replacing items. I won't do this however until I have nearly finished, as I will be making progress towards them regardless.

I did a bit more on Bridge Constructor Portal, whilst the progress is slow as I am doing a couple of levels at a time, it is fun to work out the various puzzles. I started Old Mans Journey and intend to finish that up either today or tomorrow.

Red Dead Redemption 2 saw more work on the Online and single player. I popped an achievement in the single player side of things and I am currently at the 88% mark. There is a lot to do however, and the golds look set to be a pain thanks to Rockstar seemingly not wanting to fix the mission replay problems. As for Online, I am now at level 38, slowly closing in on the level 50. It will be good to be done with the Online, as whilst it has been more peaceful for the most part, when you do come across hostile players, they are usually near invincible, one shot with any gun, and tend to stalk players across the map to force them to server hop.

Finally, on the PS4, I finished the first playthrough of Persona 5. I have made a list of the books, tools and such that I need to work on in the second playthrough, but may need a third one, or a partial one from an early save to get the rest done. I have also started working on Ratchet and Clank which I am finding to be a lot of fun.

The plan this week will be Farm Together, Old Mans Journey, Red Dead, Persona, Ratchet and Clank and maybe Far Cry New Dawn.

1. Disney Pixar Brave: The Video Game Achievements - 41/44

Permalink2019 Completion Challenge #25 - Game Pass, Persona and Red Dead
The past week saw most of my time once again split between Red Dead Redemption 2 and Persona 5. In terms of Persona, I am near the end of the game, though I may need to return to a slightly earlier save in order to level up more.

Red Dead is going well, with less than 20 levels left, the online is nearly finished. This will leave the single player side of things to return to. The Gold medals will most likely be the worst part, as the mission replay feature sounds to be a bit problematic.

I have also been downloading various titles from Game Pass. I have started work on Bridge Constructor Portal, with Old Mans Journey, Metro Exodus, ACA Neogeo Metal Slug, Borderlands, Hollow Knight, Outer Wilds and Thimbleweed Park in the list to work on.

The plan for this week will be Persona 5, Red Dead Redemption 2, Bridge Constructor and some titles off of the list.

1. Disney Pixar Brave: The Video Game Achievements - 41/44
2. Dreamfall Chapters Achievements - 0/45

Permalink2019 Completion Challenge #24 - A Short Report
Much like last week, there is little to report on the challenge. In fact, no progress happened to this list. This is largely due to being absorbed by Persona 5.

Aside from working on Persona 5 on the PS4, I have been keeping up with the daily challenges on Red Dead Online. With the MVP out of the way, the multi just requires level and money grinds. After that, it will be back to working on the single player for medals and 100%.

The Microsoft conference went rather well I thought, with most of the games shown off taking my interest. It looks like the Game Pass is going to be the gaming way forward, when my subscriptions run out I will change it to the Ultimate. It will be interesting to hear what Ubisoft and Square Enix have to show, but over all I feel it is going to be a strong year after seeing all of those games.

Finally, a thanks to a couple of friends for the gifts of Ratchet and Clank and F1 2016, I look forward to starting them both.

The plan this week will be Persona 5, Ratchet and Clank, F1 2016 and Forza Horizon 4, as well as getting back on track with the list.

The List
1. Disney Pixar Brave: The Video Game Achievements - 41/44

Permalink2019 Completion Challenge #23 - Racing, Cooking and Building
The past week saw a variety of games see some action. I also purposefully ended the achievement streak as I outlined last week at 2050 days. This resulted in putting some proper time back into the PS4, namely on Persona 5 which I am enjoying immensely.

On the Xbox side of things, I have done some more work on The Grand Tour Game, working through some of the episodes after seeing them on Amazon Prime. So far the gold medals haven't been too difficult. There are a lot of miscellaneous achievements tied to different power ups, which I can work towards whilst working on the local split screen once I have finished with the single player.

I did a small amount of Overcooked 2 as well as Tavern Story. Whilst achievements have been slim pickings in both, it is still decent progress. Overcooked 2 will probably be one of the games I will work on more, to add it to the completed game count. Finally I put more time into the new portion of Portias story. It is great to be back on this game, and the changes that have been implemented have been welcomed, such as seeing the amount of exp gained for actions.

The plan for the coming week will be Persona 5, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Darksiders 3, before I wind up forgetting gameplay mechanics.

The List
1. Disney Pixar Brave: The Video Game Achievements - 41/44
2. Dreamfall Chapters Achievements - 0/45
3. ELEX Achievements - 0/50
4. HITMAN 2 Achievements - 28/118
5. LEGO CITY Undercover Achievements - 0/48
6. NieR: Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition Achievements - 5/48
7. Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Achievements - 59/63
8. Valkyria Chronicles 4 Achievements - 0/36

600,000 Bonus Round
1. Darksiders III Achievements - 32/53 Increase of 1 achievement
2. Far Cry New Dawn Achievements - 9/50
3. Farm Together Achievements - 38/45
4. Marenian Tavern Story: Patty and the Hungry God Achievements - 0/49
5. Prey Achievements - 3/48

The past week saw progress go into numerous titles, some of which are on the list. These games are Darksiders 3, Marenian Tavern Story, Minecraft, The Grand Tour and My Time at Portia.

Starting with Darksiders 3, I am steadily getting through the story, with a few bosses left to deal with. It has been enjoyable and to an extent, it is helping me get used to dodging more, which will come in handy when I get around to Bloodborne. I hope to have the first playthrough done within the next few days, so that I can then work on New Game +.

I started Tavern Story, although I haven't unlocked any achievements yet, these will come with time. It is enjoyable and ticks some of the boxes which games like Portia and Stardew have, although to a lesser extent. I haven't put as much time into it yet as I intended, largely because the day it launched was when I started to make decent progress on Darksiders, something which I want to stay on to keep the reflexes going.

As for Minecraft, all that remains is the 1000 emerald achievement. I am also working on a world with Prodigy which is shaping up nicely with a couple of automated farms. The update for My Time at Portia came out, which didn't add any achievements but added more content, which I am fine with. I am slowly working through the various new missions whilst exploring the new ruins as well. It feels good to be back on this game.

Finally, I started The Grand Tour, the current plan is to watch an episode in full on Amazon Prime, then get onto the episode on the game. Whilst the game has most of the original video, some parts of the episode do get left out due to not being relevant to the game, namely celebrity parts/conversation street.

The plan this week is more Darksiders, Tavern Story, Minecraft and Portia. I will also continue doing level grinding on Sword Art, as I have neglected that of late.

One last thing to mention is that this week the win streak will hit 2050 days. I will be purposefully ending it at that point, this is to make gaming more relaxed as well as allowing the PS4 to get more playtime without thinking about getting an achievement on the Xbox.

The List
1. Disney Pixar Brave: The Video Game Achievements - 41/44
2. Dreamfall Chapters Achievements - 0/45
3. ELEX Achievements - 0/50
4. HITMAN 2 Achievements - 28/118
5. LEGO CITY Undercover Achievements - 0/48
6. NieR: Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition Achievements - 5/48
7. Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Achievements - 59/63
8. Valkyria Chronicles 4 Achievements - 0/36

600,000 Bonus Round
1. Darksiders III Achievements - 31/53 Increase of 20 achievements
2. Far Cry New Dawn Achievements - 9/50
3. Farm Together Achievements - 38/45
4. Marenian Tavern Story: Patty and the Hungry God Achievements - 0/49
5. Prey Achievements - 3/48
