Permalink2019 Completion Challenge #42 - More of The Same
Another week has gone by and with it, there is little progress to report for the list itself. However, progress off of the list has been alright.

Borderlands 3 is still going well, as far as I know it still has the unobtainable, which will be fixed in time. It is much more important in my eyes that they are fixing issues with the game itself, such as the negative guardian token bug and the door not opening on a main quest, both got fixed with the last hotfix. An achievement not unlocking sucks, but seeing that some people were hit by a bug which prevented progressing the story entirely, that is much worse. Thankfully on our run, we didn't come across anything too bad. An audio hiccup here or there, aside from that I did experience the guardian token problem, but that happened on the same day they fixed it, so it didn't last long.

More time went onto Truck Driver, which is also making steady progress. I don't quite know how to get some of the specific requirements done yet, as some aren't progressing, but I will worry about that down the line as I am simply enjoying having a trucking sim on console to sink time into. The devs have said the future will hold map expansions, so I am happily in this for the long haul.

I finished up Yokus Island Express via the Game Pass, as well as making progress on Jump Force. Also via game pass, I started Ashes Cricket, though I should've started it earlier to allow more time to build up points for the 10,000G quest. Still, it is making more use of the subscription which is always a good thing.

I started the new update for Forza Horizon 4, which whilst on Game Pass, is one that I own. Hopefully I won't miss a day as the festival playlist related achievements requires a full series to be done.

The plan this week will be Borderlands 3, Truck Driver, Prey and Hitman 2. I will also work on some Game Pass titles. The PS4 has taken a backseat again, my plan is to focus on the list for a bit, before celebrating Halloween with Until Dawn.

The List
1. Borderlands 3 Achievements - 38/45 Increase of 8 achievements
2. HITMAN 2 Achievements - 29/118
3. NieR: Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition Achievements - 5/48
4. Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Achievements - 59/63
5. Valkyria Chronicles 4 Achievements - 0/36

600,000 Bonus Round
1. Darksiders III Achievements - 32/53
2. Marenian Tavern Story: Patty and the Hungry God Achievements - 0/49
3. Prey Achievements - 5/48

The Completed List

Permalink2019 Completion Challenge #41 - Farming, Looting and Trucking
The past week saw a lot of time put into Borderlands 3, which I now know has an unobtainable. It will stay on the list for another week or two, in case they do a quick fix. If in a few weeks it is still unobtainable, it will be switched out for one which can be completed.

Borderlands 3 has been a blast to play through. I have been doing co-op with CompanyofWolves and it has provided us both with a lot of laughs. We have only really had an audio bug happen a few times, rarely. We will probably have the story finished today, leaving a bit of map clean up to do and levelling up. Our plan is to purposefully leave an Eridian writing at the end, for when they fix the unlock everything achievement, just for safety.

I have also put time into Truck Driver, which I had on pre-order. It is essentially Euro Truck Simulator 2 lite, being the size of a small country. Going from one side of the map to the other is around 10 minutes, so the missions aren't too long. The main thing is that it scratches that itch enough, although if they did bring ETS2 onto console, I would wind up playing it longer than Stardew Valley, My Time at Portia and Skyrim combined.

I also finally got Farm Together finished this week, having held the final expansion back so that I could get a few people into the world to help them out. Thanks to SoupaBuoy for reminding me of this!

Finally, I did some work on Yokus Island Express and Jump Force, both being Game Pass titles. With the amount of options the Pass is providing, it makes it difficult to put time into much else. Aside from checking on sales, the PS4 didn't get much of a look in this week.

The plan this week will be Borderlands 3, Truck Driver, Jump Force and Prey. I will probably do more work on Hitman 2 as well.

The List
1. Borderlands 3 Achievements - 30/45 Increase of 19 achievements
2. HITMAN 2 Achievements - 29/118
3. NieR: Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition Achievements - 5/48
4. Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Achievements - 59/63
5. Valkyria Chronicles 4 Achievements - 0/36

600,000 Bonus Round
1. Darksiders III Achievements - 32/53
2. Marenian Tavern Story: Patty and the Hungry God Achievements - 0/49
3. Prey Achievements - 5/48

Permalink2019 Completion Challenge #40 - Technical Difficulties Change
This week, I can report another completion, a change for the list and prepare for another completion.

I put the time into Dreamfall Chapters and finished up the second playthrough. I did skip most of the dialogue on the second run to make it a bit quicker. It was an alright game despite some of the pacing issues.

The copy of Elex I have seems to not work too well, but then it was from CEX and seems to have seen better days disc condition wise. Due to this, I am replacing it on the list. In its place will be Borderlands 3, partially due to playing it currently, but it also brings the 2019 games count on this list to 4. I imagine by the time Borderlands 3 is done with, it will have most likely seen around the same amount of time put into it as Elex would've required.

Farm Together is now 20k gems and 2 levels away from completion. This will definitely be doable this week, perhaps today or tomorrow. I also started PREY again, this will be my single player experience for awhile, alongside Hitman 2.

The plan this week is Farm Together, Borderlands 3 and Prey. On the PS4 it is more Horizon Zero Dawn.

The List
1. Borderlands 3 Achievements - 11/45 Game Added
2. HITMAN 2 Achievements - 29/118
3. NieR: Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition Achievements - 5/48
4. Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Achievements - 59/63
5. Valkyria Chronicles 4 Achievements - 0/36

600,000 Bonus Round
1. Darksiders III Achievements - 32/53
2. Farm Together Achievements - 55/56
3. Marenian Tavern Story: Patty and the Hungry God Achievements - 0/49
4. Prey Achievements - 5/48 Increase of 2 achievements

Permalink2019 Completion Challenge #39 - The Path to Borderlands
The past week went largely to plan, I worked on Dreamfall Chapters and Overcooked 2, as well as some other titles.

I finished the first playthrough of Dreamfall Chapters and begun the second run. I am currently on Book Two, with the last achievement being near the end of Book Four. I am skipping most of the dialogue where possible to rush through, as this playthrough is for the achievements as opposed to the story.

Myself and Boost17 continued working on Overcooked 2, which is now finished, until the next DLC at least. On top of that, I popped another achievement in Farm Together. This leaves the achievement for unlocking all of the expansion slots. This will take a bit more time, as all I can do is work on grinding gems.

I did a brief bit of Hitman 2, continuing work on the Sapienza level and its mastery. Aside from the above games, I continued working on Crackdown 3 and Forza Horizon 4. Crackdown 3 is finally finished, which I am glad about, as the wingsuit challenges were a nightmare. As for Forza, the LEGO DLC is getting closer to completion. I need to 3 star two more levels in the story and wrap up a few more skill challenges.

With Borderlands 3 out this week, the plan is to wrap up Dreamfall Chapters, the first run of Horizon Zero Dawn and do some work on Man of Medan on the PS4.

The List
1. Dreamfall Chapters Achievements - 41/45 Increase of 9 achievements
2. ELEX Achievements - 0/50
3. HITMAN 2 Achievements - 29/118 Increase of 1 achievement
4. NieR: Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition Achievements - 5/48
5. Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Achievements - 59/63
6. Valkyria Chronicles 4 Achievements - 0/36

600,000 Bonus Round
1. Darksiders III Achievements - 32/53
2. Farm Together Achievements - 55/56 Increase of 1 achievement
3. Marenian Tavern Story: Patty and the Hungry God Achievements - 0/49
4. Prey Achievements - 3/48

Permalink2019 Completion Challenge #38 - Another Step Forward
There is more progress to report as well as good news in regards to the bugged achievements.

Both the Borderlands 2 and LEGO City Undercover achievements finally popped, allowing both games to be completed. This means that another game has been crossed off of the list, which is a positive step forward, despite being behind schedule by 3-4 games.

I continued work on Dreamfall Chapters, the first play-through is currently on Book Four, so I may wind up finishing this run by the end of the day. It feels slow in some parts, but the past couple of hours have felt like the game has had better pacing. This may be in part to not having to run around the town and city as much.

I did a bit of work on Stranger Things, which is proving fun so far. I also got back on with Overcooked 2, teaming up with Boost17 to begin working on DLC. SMITE had another set of achievements which has been obtained, whilst Farm Together is making steady progress. With another event coming up, I will probably sink more time into it to take advantage of the gem crops which usually come with an event.

Idle Champions, Clicker Heroes and Gems of War are all also making progress at a steady rate, whilst they are far from completions, everything is moving in the right direction.

The plan this week will be Dreamfall Chapters, Overcooked 2 and working on the idle games.

The List
1. Dreamfall Chapters Achievements - 32/45 Increase of 14 achievements
2. ELEX Achievements - 0/50
3. HITMAN 2 Achievements - 28/118
4. NieR: Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition Achievements - 5/48
5. Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Achievements - 59/63
6. Valkyria Chronicles 4 Achievements - 0/36

600,000 Bonus Round
1. Darksiders III Achievements - 32/53
2. Farm Together Achievements - 54/56
3. Marenian Tavern Story: Patty and the Hungry God Achievements - 0/49
4. Prey Achievements - 3/48
