Continuing my efforts to tidy up my incomplete games, I put some real effort into The Sims Medieval
and almost reached the end of my first playthrough. Luckily the game is overall pretty short so after getting the grind to full stats out of the way I was able to blow through the various quests. I'm currently clearing out the last few side-quests before I move onto my second playthrough. That should be much quicker. The only problem I foresee is gathering the Focus Points I need to proceed through the quests. It seems fulfilling all my Sims' needs and sitting in the fishing interface makes time pass, no needs go lower, and I gain FPs. So if I need to that's how I'll gather as much as I need.

I had a little time this week so I thought I'd jump on Minecraft (Win 10)
, get a new map, and quickly get the new achievements that came out. It's neat popping in now and then to see all of the new features added to the game. Having waterwalking ice boots is pretty nifty!

Before I bought a new game specifically to play this week, I had originally planned to play Babel Rising 3D
alongside my efforts to work my way through Sims. I'd played this game before on the Xbox 360 and it's not very hard and quite short. Unlike the console version, though, there's no multiplayer despite what the achievements describe. And I did knock out most of the achievements quite easily and quick...except for the one for using all of the scrolls and passive abilities once
. First, I should say this is a delisted titles, which I've I mentioned before brings a certain level of anxiety with it. If it broke or something, I'd be boned. Well...that happened. The final achievement for using all of those abilities turned out to be glitched on my game after I ran through with each ability 3 times. I had the option of deleting the game and reinstalling, but that was sketchy and didn't work for a couple other games I tried it with. Luckily, this game can be installed on a Windows 10 device through the Store, which unlike the Windows 8 OS can access delisted titles. Sadly, it's completely broken. The screen doesn't fit, meaning I can't see the right 1/4 of the screen along with the bottom 1/4. I can still access it, luckily, since the mouse is also off. It's still playable but it's annoying as heck. I didn't have to do much, though. I just had to get far enough in the campaign to unlock all the various options and then run through all of the powerups. But...it didn't pop again! I was just about to lose my s*** when I quickly started the next game starting at the beginning of the list of powerups and it popped upon the game loading up. JEEZ! I've been having a lot of bad luck with glitches lately. Eesh. I was thinking about doing the original Windows Phone version which I still have on my old Windows Phone 7. But that's not only delisted but on an old, barely-functioning phone AND it's got the same glitch. That's a risk...that I kinda wanna take.
Platform: Celebrate while you can, heathens! Your end will come.

The week prior saw Telltale have a huge sale on their games and I even bought the Windows 10 stack of the first The Walking Dead game. Well, on Monday my wife was pushing hard for me to go ahead and grab The Walking Dead - A New Frontier
. We didn't quite have the money for it...but screw it. I was just as excited as she was so I grabbed it and decided to do one episode a day. As usual, I won't go into specifics much since the story is the main reason to play these games. But, wow, Telltale's engine doesn't look better than in this game. Still the occasional hiccup, but having just played their first big title last week it's even more obvious how they're progressed. The story doesn't have quite the same bite as the first and second titles but it was still a great tale. It's also wonderful watching Clementine grow and build on the foundation Lee began. I also feel like this story could have changed more drastically, and on the end-of-the-episode summaries there were often options I didn't chose that I hadn't even been aware were available to me. That shows a bit more of a nuance to makes decisions. There of course will likely be a Season 4 and I can't wait. This narrative continues to be so far ahead of the television show.
Platform: Someday, one can hope Clementine finds a home.
As with the Windows 10 version, I also jumped on the Android version of Minecraft: Pocket Edition
so I could get the new achievements. The bad thing is that two of the achievements are currently unobtainable. So, I guess I'll be back.

Speaking of cleanup, I badly needed to work on Fallout Shelter
, a game I was playing daily a couple months ago before my battle with influenza and then...I kind of forgot about. Well, I changed that on Saturday where I spent most of the day messing with the PC's clock and getting lunchboxes, completing quests, and crafting items. I managed to snag a few achievements and make good progress on others. Not a single legendary dweller, though. I feel bad for people that buy lunchboxes. What a waste...
