Been chipping away at lots of different games to make much leaderboard progress. Should get some nice achievements coming in eventually.

Completions:

Stick it To The Man Achievements - Nice one to get finished after putting it off for two years. Not a fan of this one.

Save the Ninja Clan Achievements - GTASC cleanup, a little bit tricky but not too bad.

ACA NEOGEO BLUE'S JOURNEY Achievements - Start chipping away at the ACA completions haha.

Weekly Grindfest:

Lies of Astaroth: 341 to 342 Cards (Out of 397) - The struggle.

Currently working on Lovely Planet, Action Henk, Badland, Kalimba. Also been trying Volleo runs on Threes but that is one super annoying achievement.

Leaderboard Stats:

More drops than a Knife Party track.

Congrats to DANIELJJ14 for reclaiming the CCG number one spot! I'm coming for it though bud!

I was considering doing GTASC 2018 power rankings but I think I'll let a few teams fly under the radar for now.wink Good luck to my 2017 teammate Triple Triad777 & the legend that is Mr Granstaff! Bring in another finals run! smile

Completions:

Magic 2015 - Duels of the Planeswalkers Achievements - Just had the 100 wins in multiplayer to finish off here. Thanks to DANIELJJ14 for sitting on some mammoth boosting sessions. We were going to preload it for GTASC but decided it wasn't worth the time. (Which it isn't zzz)

Jump, Step, Step Achievements - GTASC cleanup, trivial with a guide. Messed up the perfect run in finals when I didn't notice the dinosaur specific actions got added.

Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers Achievements - Just Magic Duels to go for the full series completion. Thanks to xSTAGGERxLEEx & DANIELJJ14 for helping with the multiplayer.

Weekly Grindfest:

Lies of Astaroth: 340 to 341 Cards (Out of 397) - Hitting the wall with this now, saving up crystals and doing dungeon runs.

Was mainly a big Magic push this week finished everything bar Magic Duels, bring on the Magic MMO!? Chipping away at Happy Wars & Lovely Planet. Dead Alliance got a patch finally making it completable so have been trying to finish that up.

Leaderboard Stats:

Just the card game boost this week.

PermalinkJimmy Genre #8 - Trackmania & Onwards
Happy New Year! Thought I would shake up this challenge even more by adding in two more genres. Realised there was quite a few other games that I wanted to play that wouldn't fit into here. Probably a bit too much to push for at this point but we'll see how it goes.

Xbox One Music Games! When I was doing my 2017 top 10 list I realised I really love rhythm games. I checked this leaderboard out and realised I was already 22nd on it and 1st in England looks very doable. Not too keen on hunting out all the karaoke games but I will start with everything else and see how high we can get. Also has an insane final boss game in the form of Crypt of the NecroDancer, looking forwards to sinking my teeth into that one!

Xbox One Role Playing Games! On the suggestion of ORIGENxGarboMan thought I would at least track this one. He is right that these are some of the most fun and epic games, it will give me an excuse to get back on the Dark Souls & Witcher hype! The Surge, Path of Exile, Final Fantasy, AC Origins come to mind as well should be good. Much needed after GTASC. I am laughably low down this board so hopefully should be easy enough to steadily gain places.

Completions:

Trackmania Turbo Achievements - This one has been a long time in the works, feels awesome to finally get it done. Probably going to keep playing a bit, with head to head records and trackmasters to hunt down who needs achievements!

Popping those last three achievements felt like a big crossroads for me as they would have made for great preloads in any of the TA contests. Win conditions in UHH, absolute end game Leap Frog achievements or 5000 points for a GTASC final. So yeah I will be leaving the preloading silliness behind going forwards. I gave it a good shot for one year and I think just taking them at a casual pace will lead to a healthier mindset overall.

Anyway If you are looking to preload this game track 193 is the one you want to save. Easiest black stadium track for me, gold in under 10 minutes. Then track 73 for the trackmasters preload is as good pick as any though there are a bunch of easy ones.

Weekly Grindfest:

Lies of Astaroth: 325 to 340 Cards (Out of 397)

Not much to say here. Took a couple of days away from gaming over the Christmas period and all my gaming time was put into syncing the Trackmania completion.

Leaderboard Stats:

Just the Trackmania boost. Wasn't enough to catch ORIGENxGarboMan on Platformers!
