PermalinkHalo 5, Minecraft, Fruit Ninja, TA B'day Challenge, AC IV & Rogue and more - Weekly Recap #36


External image


Wassup y'all! Hope is well with my wonderful blog readers. Apologies for missing the Weekly Recap post last weekend. I ended up working a seven-day week but as we are not allowed to work more than 13 days consecutively, I have to take the day off today! We've got lots of catching up to do so let's get into it!

TRUEACHIEVEMENTS TURNS 10!

As we all should know (and you should be super-ashamed of yourself if you don't), TrueAchievements Has Turned 10! With this momentous occasion came the TrueAchievements 10th Birthday Challenge in which participants needed to unlock achievements with the first letters spelling out "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRUEACHIEVEMENTS". Those who managed to do so by April 8th would be rewarded with an upgrade on their Community Challenge badge. Now I'm a sucker for all things badge-related so despite the challenge feeling somewhat daunting to me, I still gave it a shot and managed to smash it out of the park within a few days.

You can check out my full completed list right here but I will break it down anyway to see what was what. H-A-P-P-Y B-I-R-T-H-D was really easy as I'd only just recently started Minecraft (WP). Surprisingly, there was no easy 'A' from Minecraft so I had to turn to Tales from the Borderlands in which thankfully I only needed to complete the episode I was up to to bag the following achievement:

Tales from the BorderlandsAngry EyesThe Angry Eyes achievement in Tales from the Borderlands worth 58 pointsCompleted Episode 3


For the 'Y', I had to pull a new game out of the bag. Fruit Ninja (2013) (WP), which I'd never bothered looking at in the past, had what seemed to be an easy 'Y' achievement. Upon further study of the following achievement, it turns out it was completely luck-based as the secret fruit I needed to slice didn't come around very often and it was random when it did. Thankfully, I managed to slice one within my first couple of games:

Fruit Ninja (2013) (WP)Year of the DragonThe Year of the Dragon achievement in Fruit Ninja (2013) (WP) worth 18 pointsSlice the secret fruit!


For the 'T' and 'R', I was able to fall back to Minecraft again:

Minecraft (WP)Treasure HunterThe Treasure Hunter achievement in Minecraft (WP) worth 71 pointsAcquire a map from a cartographer villager, then enter the revealed structure


Minecraft (WP)RepopulationThe Repopulation achievement in Minecraft (WP) worth 23 pointsBreed two cows with wheat.


Then I switched back to Fruit Ninja for the 'U':

Fruit Ninja (WP)UnderachieverThe Underachiever achievement in Fruit Ninja (WP) worth 12 pointsGet a score of less than 20 after all bonuses have been awarded


Then back to Minecraft again for the 'E', 'A', and 'C':

Minecraft (WP)EnchanterThe Enchanter achievement in Minecraft (WP) worth 31 pointsConstruct an Enchantment Table.

Minecraft (WP)ArcherThe Archer achievement in Minecraft (WP) worth 16 pointsKill a creeper with arrows.

Minecraft (WP)CamouflageThe Camouflage achievement in Minecraft (WP) worth 48 pointsKill a mob while wearing the same type of mob head.


For the 'H' I had to use Minecraft: Xbox One Edition in which I didn't realise that some of the multiplayer achievements could be done using another controller. Ironically, I fired up my Creeper controller and bagged a quick 'H':

Minecraft: Xbox One EditionHotshotThe Hotshot achievement in Minecraft: Xbox One Edition worth 133 pointsHit a Player with a Snowball while falling into the Lava.


Then it was back to the WP version of Minecraft again for an 'I':

Minecraft (WP)Iron ManThe Iron Man achievement in Minecraft (WP) worth 21 pointsWear a full suit of Iron Armor.


The 'E's were a bit of a struggle. I didn't have any really easy ones to pop. For the first of the last three 'E's, I had to fire up Halo 5: Guardians and help "the Elite General charge the hill in Osiris on Heroic difficulty." This was a bit of a pain in the ass to be honest. Once I came into the battlefield in this mission where the Elite and a few Jackals were fighting against the Prometheans, the Elite was heavily out-numbered by all sorts of Prometheans who'd also be using turrets as well. The Elite however, wouldn't accept my help if you will and would shoot at me if I got to close. Even when clearing out the enemies in his vicinity, he would push up to quick towards the last section where the battle would really become more intense and be much tougher to either keep myself or the Elite alive. Eventually, I got the job done and the Elite survived all the way up to the necessary door where he'd finally stopped trying to kill me roll

Halo 5: GuardiansEnemy of my EnemyThe Enemy of my Enemy achievement in Halo 5: Guardians worth 36 pointsHelp the Elite General charge the hill in Osiris on Heroic difficulty.


A quick 'V' was impossible with the achievements I didn't have in games I'd started. I scoured the entire achievement database with achievements beginning with 'V' and after looking at this letter three times over, I finally decided that starting Life is Strange for a 'V' would be the best bet. I flew through the first Episode, collecting all of the optional photos on the way for the following achievement:

Life is StrangeVisionaryThe Visionary achievement in Life is Strange worth 67 pointsTake all optional photos in Episode 1: Chrysalis


I can't remember if it was specifically for the next 'E' but I tried to fire up some different apps to help with the challenge. Several apps I did try however, seemed to have had their names slightly changed from what was being displayed on the site and once I switched region, downloaded them and fired them up, opening up the achievement tab would reveal that achievements weren't supported! shock Thankfully, NFL on Xbox One hadn't changed although when I opened the app, there was a notification saying that it would be changing soon. Presumably to one without achievement support. Watching "video highlights for 100 regular season or playoff games" was my next best bet for an 'E'. It took a day or two to do as I was working both days and there wasn't a way to just leave the videos rolling all day as they would stop after a specific day's worth had been watched. While I was at home however, I was able to mooch around on TA and do other things while constantly reloading the videos:

NFL on Xbox OneExpert AnalystThe Expert Analyst achievement in NFL on Xbox One worth 0 pointsWatch video highlights from 100 different regular season or playoff games.


I was ale to flip back to Minecraft for the next letter 'M':

Minecraft (WP)Map RoomThe Map Room achievement in Minecraft (WP) worth 61 pointsPlace 9 fully explored, adjacent map items into 9 item frames in a 3 by 3 square.


Halo 5 got fired up again for the next two letters. First up, I needed to escape "the doomed Kraken by jumping onto a Phaeton piloted by a Spartan". It took a couple of attempts but thankfully I could attempt it on easy and I had a pretty ideal checkpoint towards the end of the mission to make life easier:

Halo 5: GuardiansEmergency Boarding ProceduresThe Emergency Boarding Procedures achievement in Halo 5: Guardians worth 29 pointsEscape the doomed Kraken by jumping onto a Phaeton piloted by a Spartan.


Sticking with Halo 5, I needed to destroy "10 walls or floors in Swords of Sanghelios." It took a couple of attempts but I got it done soon enough:

Halo 5: GuardiansNo Knock RaidThe No Knock Raid achievement in Halo 5: Guardians worth 28 pointsDestroy 10 walls or floors in Swords of Sanghelios.


To finish off, I was able to go back to Minecraft for two quick and easy achievements:

Minecraft (WP)TrampolineThe Trampoline achievement in Minecraft (WP) worth 23 pointsBounce 30 blocks upward off a slime block.


Minecraft (WP)Stayin' FrostyThe Stayin' Frosty achievement in Minecraft (WP) worth 30 pointsSwim in lava while having the Fire Resistance effect.


Sorted! toast

THE BEAN DIVE TAKES A BEATING

With all the excitement of the TA Is 10 Challenge and my recent upgrade to Windows 10 mobile on my Windows 8 phone (yes I still own a WP), starting the next game in my gifted lineup, my Bean Dive has been battered a bit. Here's the stats since a fortnight ago:

Start completion % = 94.89
End completion % = 93.12
Final dive % = 1.77
Current completion % = 94.06 93.00
Recovered completion % = 0.94 -0.12
Achievements needed for recovery = 99 228
Total games dived = 4
Now I'm into the minus on Recovered completion and it doesn't look to recover greatly any time soon!

The fun with Halo 5 continued as backup for the times I couldn't play Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (Xbox 360). I started to work on a bit of the multiplayer stuff instead of continuing with the skulls as it was a bit easier and straight-forward. I still to do some of the multiplayer stuff, miscellaneous campaign stuff and heroic co-op. For now however, this will have to wait until next year.

GIFTED GAME FOR MARCH (1/2) - ASSASSIN'S CREED IV: BLACK FLAG (XBOX 360)



Complete the game Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (Xbox 360) before IanK1987 by 16 Mar 18

AC IV's time frame for completion was between March 1st - March 16th. Sadly, this time has now passed and I managed a pathetic total as you can see above. I just couldn't get the chances to get on the Xbox 360 in my lads room. I only had three short sessions with the game. As with the previous two titles in the lineup, this one will have to wait until next year.

GIFTED GAME FOR MARCH (2/2) - ASSASSIN'S CREED ROGUE



Complete the game Assassin's Creed Rogue before Itzz Sh0wt1m3 by 01 Apr 18

Dat Boi Treezy progress - 2.2%
Itzz Sh0wt1m3 progress - 4%
Time progress - 83.52%
1 achievements out of 46 won

20/1000 Gamerscore

20/1599 TrueAchievement Points
I'm already catching up to Sh0wt1m3 after bagging just one achievement laugh. I've only played the game for about an hour last night however, so understandably progress isn't amazing so far. I'm a bit cheesed off that I didn't manage to complete the campaign of AC IV though just incase the stories connect somehow. I've already seen a character from IV in Assassin's Creed Rogue who's name I can't remember. It's the black guy who was captured on the ship with your character in IV. As this game is backwards compatible, I've no excuses now to not play the game whenever I can. This means that Halo 5 will well and truly be put on hold until next year and I have until April 1st to nail this title, at which point, Assassin's Creed Unity will be next up.

OTHER GAMES STARTED/PLAYED/FINISHED

Cut the Rope: Experiments (WP) has finally been conquered after losing all of my data three times over! I need to make more progress with the Windows Phone version of Minecraft to help towards GTASC. I started both Windows Phone versions of Fruit Ninja recently. I've smashed to older one but still need to do the one that came out after. Life is Strange needs to be conquered but I may start this again at some point so I can experience it properly as I liked what I played so far.

QUICK SCOPE!

Watching - King of the Hill - Season 12 Episode 21

Playing (Non Xbox/Windows titles) - None

I keep saying I should be playing Pokémon Pinball but I still haven't got back to it yet. Instead, I'm going to start one of the actual Pokémon games my woman got my for Christmas... eventually.

Last YouTube video watched

Baron Davis was in the NBA when I first started watching and he was one hell of a player. It was good to see what he was upto recently has he took time out to stop by Hot 97:



Last song listened to - Rick Ross - Know About



Last game played - Assassin's Creed Rogue

Last achievement unlocked

Assassin's Creed RogueSecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Assassin's Creed Rogue worth 20 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement


YOUTUBE VIDEO OF THE WEEK

As a big hip hop fan, I'm so ashamed of myself for not having listened to Black Star's - Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star. My YouTube Watch Later list is 300+ videos strong so I'm a bit behind on the times! I recently made a little progress on the whopping backlog while eating my dinner in Morrisons on a break in Blackburn the other day and caught up with this particular video. In the video VinRican showcases classic samples used on Black Star's 'Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star' and the samples and songs are banging! I definitely need to add this album to my phone at some point!



CLIP OF THE WEEK

Just me bagging the final kill in a close match of Slayer in Halo 5. I was the MVP of the match too!



NEWS THAT'S CAUGHT MY EYE

First of all, I have a few honourable mentions for news covered over the past couple of weeks. First of all, we had the Minecraft Bedrock Aquatic Beta Update which caught my eye as I reckon there will be more achievements added, hopefully for all the different versions of the game.

There's been many editorials on the go recently and I even took part in one!

Which Xbox Achievement Are You Most Proud Of?

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier also recently went Backwards Compatible, this gives Xbox One users chance to use my awesome solution for the Master Tactician achievement.

Then there was the 10 Years of TrueAchievements - The Site History which was a very cool and interesting read. There was also my own coverage of the announcement of Tom Clancy's The Division 2.

What really caught my eye for the week however, was this sad news:

Happy Wars Shutting Down on Xbox 360 and Windows 10



I first played Happy Wars (Xbox 360) back in October of 2012. I bagged about eight achievements and never bothered with it again until I randomly fired it up again in June 2013 for one more achievement. The games is a pile of shit in my opinion and I regret starting it massively. Back in the day, when Xbox Live Parties were poppin', there was seven or eight of us who all jumped in a game as it was being hyped up like crazy by one of the party members. We all had a messed up blast for about an hour or so and then sacked it off.

Now, the services will be now more. Ideally, I should be hammering the life out of the game but sadly, the 360 version isn't backwards compatible. This means I'd have to upset my son over and over while I occupy his room to play his 360. To be honest though, I'm not massively bothered by it. I know that my completion percentage will be forever scarred as I won't be able to unlock the remaining 27 achievements but I just can't be assed playing something I wont enjoy for god knows how long. I'm not sacking off my gaming plans for the year just for Happy Wars. Maybe if I didn't have this "system" on the go then I'd consider it.

SONG OF THE WEEK

My son's heavy into R&B, Pop, and especially Nicki Minaj. The other day, I walked in from work to the sound of his particular song blasting from Jason Derulo. I don't mind some of Jason Derulo's songs to be honest and this one's pretty catchy. Ty Dolla $ign doesn't have the best verse but Jason and Nicki held down the fort pretty well:

THIS WEEK'S STREAM

Check me out making short work and getting made short work by my opponents in Halo 5's multiplayer as I chatter on about this and that:



Thanks for reading as always and hopefully I'll see you all next weekend!

PermalinkMinecraft, ACA NEOGEO METAL SLUG 2, Halo 5: Guardians, AC IV: Black Flag, & more - Weekly Recap #35


External image


Hello all! Welcome to the 35th instalment of the most criminally-underrated blog post series on TrueAchievements of all time! laugh This week has been an interesting one on the gaming front with two different versions of Minecraft giving me some chunky gamerscore and TA points, a quick completion giving me a #1 spot on a game leaderboard, progress with this month's and last month's gifted games, and plenty more. Let's dig in on this warmer-than-it-has-been Sunday!

TOP TEN ACHIEVEMENT WINS AND COMPLETED GAMES

There's a new addition to my Top Ten Achievement Wins And Completed Games section! After a quick search, I couldn't find when the last time was I updated this list but on the plus side, this means you get to check out all of my old ones too. wink

ACA NEOGEO METAL SLUG 2 (Win 10) released very quietly along with a few other ACA NEOGEO games too. Being the big fan of Metal Slug that I am, it was without question that I made a purchase of the game as soon as I could. Normally, I'd save the achievements for streak-keeping purposes but this time around, I thought I'd treat myself instead and smash all of the achievements as quickly as possible in an effort to be the first to complete the game. Less than an hour after installing the game, I'd nailed it!

Check out the updated list:

BEAN DIVE PROGRESS

The 2017 Bean Dive has been quiet spikey recently as expected recently. I made huge progress with Minecraft (Kindle Fire), started and completed ACA NEOGEO METAL SLUG 2 (Win 10), started and almost completed Minecraft, started Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (Xbox 360), and made more progress with Halo 5: Guardians. Check out the stats:

Start completion % = 94.89
End completion % = 93.12
Final dive % = 1.77
Current completion % = 94.15 94.06
Recovered completion % = 1.03 0.94
Achievements needed for recovery = 87 99
Total games dived = 4
MINECRAFT (Newest version & Kindle Fire)

The two different versions of Minecraft helped massively with the GTASC contest and also boosting my TA Ratio back above 2.0. Sadly, the Beam Me Up achievement won't pop for me as it's partially discontinued/unobtainable. I just need to pop the Passing The Time achievement now to max out the newest version as far as I can. As for the Kindle Fire version, this version's Beam Me Up achievement suffers the same issue but the So I Got That Going For Me achievement has been unobtainable since the Update 1.1: Discovery Update for Minecraft (Kindle Fire) released.

I don't have an Apple TV or intend on having one so that version's a no-go. I don't have an iPhone so I can't play that one either although I suppose if absolutely need be I could borrow one off someone. I don't know the first thing about Gear VR so I'm not 100% on that one but the Windows Phone version is a go! smile My Lumia 640 has always been on version 8.1. With the loss of Facebook Messenger, my Barclays banking app, a shit version of Instagram, broken Internet Explorer, and many more little problems, I decided to try and upgrade my phone to the Windows 10 version. After going horribly wrong, I finally got it to work and now my phone can actually use Facebook Messenger, Instagram works, and many other pluses too. There's still no banking app but now I can play the WP edition of Minecraft which I may bust out to use next Wednesday for next week's GTASC period!

Sharp-eyed blog readers may be wondering why I'm still playing Halo 5: Guardians when February has ended. Well, it's because the only copy of of AC IV that I do have is on the Xbox 360. I gave my Xbox 360 to my son for a Christmas present but he rarely plays it. I'm not going to go as far as taking the Xbox 360 out of his room but when I do get the opportunity to play it, it's only when he's not in. While his TV and console is unavailable for me to use, I'll revert back to the previous game in my line up, this being Halo 5.

As for Halo 5, I've managed to smash the campaign on legendary and also find all 117 pieces of intel. I just need to go back through and find all of the skulls as well as nail some of the miscellaneous achievements. After that, I'll need to focus on co-op and multiplayer.

GIFTED GAME FOR MARCH - ASSASSIN'S CREED IV: BLACK FLAG (XBOX 360)

I can't believe I've only give myself two weeks to complete this! If I wanted to fit all of the gifted games in this year, then something had to give and with AC IV, and some other AC titles not originally being in the lineup ahead of Assassin's Creed Origins, I had to group them all up over the next two months. I didn't want to start AC:O without checking out the older ones first.

My son got a bit upset when he returned home from school one day to discover I'd been in his room playing on the 360. Mainly because he has his animal figures set up all over his TV desk. The volume wasn't working on his TV so I had to pull it forward, as well as the console, and knocked pretty much all of his figures over which were inconveniently placed all over the TV and Xbox as well as in front and to the sides of them. There was also a lamp sat right in front of the TV screen too -_- . Now, I have to be a bit more tactical when playing the 360. I've only had a couple of days with the game so far and both have been around 1-2 hour stints. This week isn't looking promising as I'm working all early shifts with starts between 5.15-7.30am and finishes between 16.50-20.15. This means I'll not got any opportunities at all to play the game. It would be nice to at least finish the campaign of the game but even this isn't looking promising. I've not even finished memory sequence two yet! shock

QUICK SCOPE!

Watching - King of the Hill - Season 12 Episode 11



My NOW TV pass has come to an end! cry As for The Blacklist, I can still continue watching this on SKY downstairs but it's not the same as watching it in bed before I fall asleep. For the record, I made it to Season 3 Episode 13. I was hoping to dive into some old school cartoons and films that have spent years on my to-watch list with a 14-day free trial for the kid's pass and one for the movies pass. The way NOW TV seems to handle this offer is shit though as they warn you that you can't cancel your subscription before or when the free period runs out and I'd have to pay for the rest of the month, or something along those lines anyway. With that in mind, it's not exactly expensive for a partial month but I'm not going for it anyway just incase I forget!

Playing (Non Xbox/Windows titles) - Will be Pokémon Pinball

I will finally be getting back into this at some point now that my NOW TV run is over. I'm going to spend a few nights with Pinball and then get into the proper Pokemon series my missus bought me for Christmas.

YOUTUBE VIDEO OF THE WEEK

As you all know, you can sometimes be mooching around on YouTube when one of those random videos at the side catches your eye. Now, understandably, with my taste for the thicker woman, the thumbnail on this one lured me in! I like Hotline Bling from Drake, it's a classic without a doubt. This version however without music gave me a few giggles. Check it out:



NEWS THAT'S CAUGHT MY EYE

It was a pretty easy one for me this week thanks to Gears of War 4. I can't but cry a tear everytime I see something Gears 4 related pop up in the news because it's always something shit. This time around, the March achievements were revealed and low and behold, there was more grinding to be had!



The approach The Coalition has took to Gears 4 has been pretty shit if you ask me. From what I see, it's all about grinding, grinding, and grinding the same shit over and over and over. Where's the actual new content? The four "DLC packs" released so far have been shit. No new maps, no new campaign content, no new nothing really. It's just all about grinding, buying packs, and obviously coining it in from the suckers buying packs relentlessly to try and speed up their progress. I haven't played Gears of War 4 for the longest but at some point I need to get back into it. I really enjoyed the Gears series even Gears of War: Judgment. Gears of War 4 however, has not been great. I remember playing the campaign in excitement to see how the new characters where and what the first proper instalment on the Xbox One had to offer and it wasn't all that. I can honestly say I'd have happily not bothered with this game at all and left with happy memories after my flash back to the past with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.

SONG OF THE WEEK

After a double-dosage of Unforgettable earlier on the kitchen while I was washing up, it's only right that my man Dave East gets the Song of the Week slot this week as I actually prefer his remix to the original.
