Permalinkoh you play games too?
Started seven Killer Instinct DLCs yesterday... like an idiot.
Dropped my completion% from 57-almost-58% to 56.1% facepalm

Really enjoying Max: The Curse of Brotherhood.
Hopefully it'll be my 3rd completion from the XBOX Game Pass (free trial).

Really want to start BioShock (Xbox 360) before the 14-day free trial is over!

Just hit 50,000 gamerscore, and already halfway to 55k.

Oh and Outlast "Whistleblower" DLC is only sale (bundle) for $6.25 right now... So I just bought that. UGH. I loved getting Outlast 100% (my crowning achievement actually), but not sure my HEART can handle any more... I bought it cuz it's on sale, but it's probably going to be a LONG WHILE before I play it...

Only 9 more days 4 more days to complete the ABC Challenge... need Y and Z.

PermalinkLetter Y - Max: The Curse Of The Brotherhood
I've decided I'm going to start Max: The Curse of Brotherhood today.

Free game from Xbox Game Pass (14-day trial). Going for my 43rd completion (or 44 if I finish #IDARB first...)

And I just discovered this game has a Letter Y achv!! SWEET!

PermalinkABC Challenge - Letter X
So I got from letters A to W fairly quick actually, jumping from game to game to pick up a quick achv here and there (actually this lowered my monthly TA Ratio from over 2.0 to 1 point something, kinda bugs me).

Then I got to "X" the dreaded letter for anyone doing the ABC challenge. Looking at my history, in 12 years of playing, I'd only ever gotten ONE "X" achv. And that was just last year.
Defense Grid 2XenocideGRAND NOBLEThe Xenocide achievement in Defense Grid 2 worth 100 pointsKill 50,000 aliens.

So my "X" list consisted of just THREE achvs.
1 for Halo MCC: ODST (which I don't even have the ODST DLC).
And 2 for XCOM.

So I started a new game XCOM and played for a few hours and finally my "X" achv popped!
XCOM: Enemy UnknownSecret AchievementGRAND NOBLEThe Secret Achievement achievement in XCOM: Enemy Unknown worth 14 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

I was so excited, I ran to TA to refresh and BAM! There it is! On my homepage timeline!!!... but... TA says I still need to get letter X. What? HUH? Wuhh?

Turns out my stupid backward compatible game disconnected from LIVE, so I got 4 achvs OFFFFFFLINNNNEE.

So it doesn't count. So it doesn't count. It doesn't count..

This is me. dive Diving to the depths of despair.




(oh yeah, and then I immediately also picked up *what should have been* my Letter "Y" achv............ also offline).
XCOM: Enemy UnknownYou Have 5 Seconds to ComplyGRAND NOBLEThe You Have 5 Seconds to Comply achievement in XCOM: Enemy Unknown worth 17 pointsBuild a S.H.I.V.
I mean, WTF.

PermalinkFocus.... 100% completions vs. Increase %
I'm having such a hard time trying to decide what game(s) to play and focus on.

*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

But I can't decide if I should work on games that I only have 1 to 6 really difficult/really time-consuming achvs to get the 100% completion..... (22 games so far in 2017)

Or games that I still have 40-50 achvs left to get. To rack up loads of gamerscore and UP my percentage.... (14,230 gs so far in 2017)

100% completions vs. Lots of achvs...... hmmmm

As of today:
38 games completed
47,840 gs
55.89% completion percentage
1.9675 TA Ratio (proud of that)
