Passed a number of milestones in a the last 4 weeks as follows
Gamerscore passed 240,000 whilst completing Battleships (more on that below) with this achievement
Achievement streak of 650 days and ongoing whilst playing the excellent Sky Force Anniversary with this achievement (the only one of the day)
And completed games 99, 100, 101 and 102 with the 100th completed game, and my goal for the year also being Battleship
So thats it - I've achieved 2 of the goals I set for myself in January last year (the other being 300k TA score which I flew through back in June.
Other games I've been playing include a number of Windows phone games (due to spending a few days in Iceland watching the Northern Lights and visiting waterfalls and Icebergs. Top Travel Tip - Iceland is very beautiful in a barren way, is world champion for Waterfalls and vertical cliffs and is very very expensive but absolutely worth a visit). Dragon Age Inquisition I've faltered on and put to one side to be picked up again later (about half way through the main story I think) and then I've been picking up a few games from my library like Bedlam (gah), Ink, Peggle 2 and I've restarted Batman: Arkham City on the xBox One which I'm plowing through. I also found Sky Force anniversary which as a bullet hell lite shooter I really enjoy.
Of course the Black friday sales has bought more games to the list so I think I've got enough now to take a year of work and still never clear the backlog. Now onto the games completed list and update the fun list!
Game 99: The Park.
Grabbed in on the weekly sale. Another walking sim that you can complete in about an hour (I missed one achievement on the way so took a little longer). Goes into the group of other walking sims - slightly more engaging than others but only played it for the easy 1000
Game 100: Battleship
Fun enough in a retro kind of way. Attempts to add variety by having different fleets (the real difference is that some have different special weapons / weapon charge times). Apart from one level in the mid 20's (of 30) the rest of the game is a breeze although a little time consuming. The AI shows some breathtaking levels of stupidity so I probably only lost a couple of games in total.
Game 101: Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown
Probably the best balanced fighter game of all time. More reliant on learning a few combos than games like Tekken and doesn't fall into the rage quit that Mortal Kombat and Injustice provokes where the computer seems to go to town on you no matter the difficulty. The challenges on this game were finding an online partner to get the online achievements (thanks community!) and the condition win challenges took some time. Still enjoyed playing through this.
Game 102: Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy the Telltale series
I cant quite place this in my overall list of TellTale games but its near the top with The Wolf Among us, Walking Dead 1 and the first Batman. Apart from chapter 3 which is a bit of a slow down the rest of the game was excellent and for the first time since The Walking Dead season 1 It did feel like some of the actions you choose had consequences.
So thats that - I started this to document getting 100 completions and that's done, I have one goal to complete this year which is 340k TA Score and I'm on 339,150 as I write this so that will be easy in the next few weeks even with a 10 day trip to South Africa coming up. However, I quite enjoy writing it, so i'll keep it up to date as I keep playing. Next year I will probably only set an Achievement total as my main goal and probably write about that as the year rolls on. Highly Recommended:
