Hello TA'ers! wave Long time no see! Apologies for giving the Weekly Recap posts a miss over the past few weeks. I was pretty busy but at the same time, I was considering chucking in the towel to be honest. Obviously, I don't see any statistics for views on the blog posts so I can't find out if anyone's actually reading these posts. Thankfully, after asking on my friend feed if they were worth carrying on with, SpaceIsTheGrave and GamerScoreM4STA dropped a comment each which was all the inspiration I needed to carry on. So long as one person's reading the blog posts, then it's worth the time to me. Shout out to fellow newshound ChewieOnIce as well who often drops a post on the blogs too. It's much appreciated!

To start off, we're going to dive straight into a new top ten completion and a couple of new top ten achievement wins! toast

I got very lucky with the Minecraft top ten win here. I was just browsing through my friend feed and noticed that Itzz Sh0wt1m3 had bagged the "So I Got That Going For Me" achievement which was previously unobtainable. I quickly fired up this version of Minecraft on my eldest daughter's Kindle Fire and popped the achievement. I quickly unlocked the "Beam Me Up" achievement too which I'd left locked as it was previously buggy for me and I'd not bothered to try it again since. With these two quick unlocks, I clocked in at 2nd place overall for completing the game! toast

DIVING LOWER THAN WHEN BEAN DIVE STARTED

I've still been sticking to my "gaming system" this year so as expected, my Bean Dive has continued to suffer. It's suffered more so than previously over the past few weeks as I've made poor progress in recovering the new games I've started. Plus I've had to start games outside of my planned titles to try and score extra GS for the GTASC. Here's how it's looking since the last Weekly Recap which was on March 18th.

Start completion % = 94.89
End completion % = 93.12
Final dive % = 1.77
Current completion % = 93.00 93.08
Recovered completion % = -0.12 -0.04
Achievements needed for recovery = 228 222
Total games dived = 4
Well, to be honest, this is actually better than I though it would be but still, I've got so much work to do. Understandably though, there was no way I was going tot complete any of the Assassin's Creed titles within two weeks while still working non-stop and entertaining the kids in between and at the weekends too.

I finished with more progress made than Sh0wt1m3 but as expected, I got nowhere near to finishing the game. I enjoyed what I played of the title and I'm looking forward to getting back into it. For now however, it's going to have to wait until next year.

ACU is my first taste of an AC game on the Xbox One and straight away, I could see the improvements from the last generation to now. The movement, visuals, gameplay had all been improved and the most notable change was the free running with the option to specifically free run up or down now. As per usual however, it's still been a struggle making decent progress in this. I haven't worked a massive amount this week for a change and it's been the first time this year I've had three days off in one week. I've had to try and score some GS from easy titles to keep the GTASC dream alive but I don't have any 0-2 hour completions left.

Minecraft: Xbox One Edition's multiplayer achievements helped me out a bit for Period 10 of GTASC 2018 although DaveKinetic and I (Northern Lads Like Gravy) still had to chuck a bonus on for good measure. I've also been playing a mix of Rayman Fiesta Run (WP) Achievements and Rayman Fiesta Run (Win 8) to help just a little bit. The WP version was mainly for while I was at work and the W8 version for if the TV in the living room was occupied. The WP version has been conquered but I still need to complete the url=Title Update for Rayman Fiesta Run (Win 8). I'll chip away at this slowly but surely but it's a lot of time for little reward and not much help for the GTASC.

I've also started NBA Playgrounds to try and help with score. It's been OK so far but it's no where near as fun as the likes of NBA Jam. Still, it will help with score but even if I manage to complete this game this week, I'm still going to need to try and complete another couple of easy games. At the minute, I'm thinking of Horse Racing 2016 and/or Cel Damage HD and/or Beyond Eyes. I've also started Rayman Jungle Run (WP) kind of by mistake to be honest. I just assumed it would be nice a straight forward like Fiesta Run but my word is it not. One of the achievements is for collecting 3600 lums in one go, without retrying or dying. I've not actually attempted this yet but I've already been dying much more than like so the full completion looks like it's going to take some heavy hours of practice and retrying! cry

QUICK SCOPE!

Watching - The Blacklist - Season 3 Episode 14



McDonalds have their Monopoly game on the go again and this time around, those collecting their stickers don't have to throw their spares straight in the bin! If you manage to get hold of ten spares, you can enter the codes for these into McD's website and exchange them for a NOW TV pass of your choice! Naturally, I went for the Entertainment Pass so I could continue watching where I was up to with The Blacklist.



Before I fired The Blacklist, I was making steady progress with the 13th and final season of King Of The Hill. I've really enjoyed my time watching KotH and I'm going to miss the series once I've finished with the last episode.

YOUTUBE VIDEO OF THE WEEK

I don't search YouTube for people, I search for videos. Skill Up however is one of the rare number of people I've subscribed to for their thoughts and opinions on things. Lately, he uploaded a video on 2017 being the (worst) and best year for gaming. It's a good watch and listen. Check it out:



CLIP OF THE WEEK

I nailed a nice half-court shot for what should've unlocked the Hail Mary achievement. Sadly, it didn't unlock because apparently the animation of my player going over the line means the shot was technically from inside the half-court which is bullshit. In the real world, the shot counts from where you took off, not from where you land! I have actually nailed shots afterwards from beyond the half-court line without landing over it but it still hasn't popped:



NEWS THAT'S CAUGHT MY EYE

Kelly Packard aka KBop a doo brought sad news to our attention regarding the server shutdown of the different variations of AlphaJax (WP) and Wordament Snap Attack (WP).

Wordament Snap Attack


I personally own Wordament Snap Attack (Android) and sit at around 1,850,000 points in which I need 2,500,000 to pop the last achievements. Before digging the story back up, I originally thought the end date was May 18th but looking at the story again, the date's now March 20th! I'm sure I've been able to play Wordament since then so I'm not sure that's 100% accurate or the date may have just been regarding AlphaJax. Either way, I need to get a groove on with the game.

With the time frame in mind, I thought it would be fun to challenge punkyliar to see who could complete the game first. When I first checked the in-game leaderboards, punky had about 650,000 points where as I had around 1,600,000. Just under a month down the line, punky now has just under 1,400,000 points with just 19,2333 snaps compared to my 1,878,609 points with 54,828 snaps! redface It's pretty embarrassing to have hammered that many snaps for such little points! GameTagwastaken hit over 2,500,000 points with 54,213 snaps. Matrarch has set the best example so far with 2,587,920 points with just 31,303 snaps! That's really impressive stuff. Maybe it took more games and a longer time to get the score but I cant see those stats for my "frenemies". I did play in a few matches against punky at one point and we both nailed 36 snaps. My snaps however were worth something like 1600 points while punky smashed something like 5600 points. The only time I've been playing the game however is on long meal breaks at work.

WORK WORK WORK WORK



Speaking of work, the past two weeks have been spent "mentoring" a new trainee who's now taken over my spot on the Tendered Clitheroe Roster. Before this, I had a decent hour or so on my meal break to smash Wordament about. Since having my trainee however, I've not been able to focus fully on the game so I've been neglecting it really. My trainee didn't do as well as I'd hoped so now he's going to continue on for another week but with someone else as I'm going to Atherton next week.

Unlike the Ribble Valley routes, we're going to be helping another company this time around so it will be interesting to see how this goes. Sadly however, details are super scarce. All it says on the rota for Monday to Friday (or Saturday I think) is "Atherton". No times, no address, no contacts, no nothing. Communication, details, and what not has been really unsurprisingly shit at the minute.

SONG OF THE WEEK

Easy one this week with a blast from the past when I had this on full volume and repeat when it first came out:
