The path to 100 complete games 19 weeks in
Approaching weeks 20 and I'm still on schedule.

In the last 3 weeks, I've spent 10 days on vacation (which was a nice break clap), as the previous month by picking off one or two achievements per day on Windows 10 (Gimme Five and Taptiles) just keeping the streak going along. Plus when you're with your GF and 2 year old you really can't use "but I've got a target to meet" as an excuse for not going out for dinner / beach / lake etc. .angry laugh

However, before I went away I managed to complete the Jack the Ripper add on for AC: Syndicate, and also Coffin Dodgers, and Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek and part 1 of Guardians of the Galaxy. This means I'm now at 48.7% of target, at 35.5% of time, so i'm still comfortably in front - especially as I'm back on the road to Johannesburg and CapeTownsmile for the next 11 days (and the WIFI isn't the best in South Africa!)..

Apart from the completed games, I bought and/or started and left a good few games from my backlog as I' tried to find a game that would keep me occupied for a few days between airport's without requiring a massive amount of time. So that mean, more Forza Horizon 3, Halo MCC, and then some time on The Bunker, White Night, Madden NFL 17 and the pretty awful Rock N Roll Racing Off-Road DX.

Once I'm back from South Africa I'll get back into the backlog and make an effort on Madden NFL17 I really want also to get some of the ID titles done - its just finding enough time in one go and being motivated enough. Still onto this months completions:

AC:Syndicate Jack the Ripper DLC: This DLC uses pretty much the same mechanics as Syndicate except for the new fear bombs and darts. Which actually were an interesting addition, especially on some of the sub-missions. The new idea of having areas outside the main map for the memories I also liked as it offered new places and focussed more on the interior of the buildings. I did enjoy this DLC as much as Freedom Cry from Ac4 (even having to pick up every collectible to get the 100% achievement). A nice ending to the Syndicate story.

Coffin Dodgers: A simple kart racer, you know how it works - drive round some courese, collecting the odd power up (some of which are far more effective than others) and aim to finish first in the knockout races. Nothing special. Some of the course design is relatively average, some below average. The 1000 GS is for completing the races in first, and using the weapons. Its not too much of a grind and could probably be done in an afternoon. One tip - the upgrades stack. So its better to save up for the high level upgrades as you get the lower ones at the same time. They dont make a massive difference in the actual experience.

Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek. Standard Artifax Mundi affair - move around, pick up some items and complete some find the object puzzles. Some kind of plot about sacrifices, a priest and missing women. Not as engaging as the Sirens of the Deep games. Came as part of a bundle and unless you are an avid fan it can be quite a slog to get through it. Happily, unlike the Sirens of the Deep you can get all the achievements on one play through as the difficulty stacks.

Guardians of the Galaxy I'll review assuming all episodes come out on time. Initial impressions that at least TTG have sorted out the engine problems that caused all the other games to freeze at key moments. Voice acting is hit and miss and hopefully like all other TTG games, it gets into its storytelling stride in the next episode..

And so - completing the enjoyment list:

Impressive, I just hit 550 the other day. So many times I just feel like giving up but my WP has so many achievements to get easily.

Ive run out of simple games on the phone/tablet, which is kinda sad.
