PermalinkUHH 3: Week 2
So I casually joined UHH 3 to see how motivated I was and to be honest, I wasn't. I was able to unlock 5 to secure the tie and apparently I won in a tiebreaker. I'm hoping to put a little more effort into this week but I have a sneaky feeling that I won't do as well this week. My opponent is GoDsGiFt 9023 and he won something like 15-17 achievements last week. I'm hoping for 10 but we'll see how realistic that is once I break down the achievements.

Xbox LIVE LabsSenior Research AnalystThe Senior Research Analyst achievement in Xbox LIVE Labs worth 0 pointsUse the Xbox LIVE Labs for a total of an hour

I don't believe I have this installed anymore and I did take a look at re-downloading it but I can't find it. This might be one that I've got no chance at.

The GunstringerOnce Upon a Time in the WestThe Once Upon a Time in the West achievement in The Gunstringer worth 22 pointsEnd an artist's career.

This one is definitely doable as it'll unlock at the end of the first Act.

Mafia IIThe EnforcerThe The Enforcer achievement in Mafia II worth 11 pointsKill 50 enemies.

This one is also very doable because 50 enemies is not a very high number. Will most likely also prioritize this one.

BioShock Infinite (Xbox 360)Coins in the CushionThe Coins in the Cushion achievement in BioShock Infinite (Xbox 360) worth 12 pointsIn the Main Campaign, loot 200 containers.

Seems like an easy enough one... I'll be a box opening maniac. :P

Halo: ReachYes, SenseiThe Yes, Sensei achievement in Halo: Reach worth 12 pointsEarn a First Strike Medal in a Matchmaking game.

This I believe could be a tough one... I'm not too good at Halo MP so I'll have to get very, very lucky and / or attempt to boost it.

Assassin's Creed UnityBlade In The CrowdThe Blade In The Crowd achievement in Assassin's Creed Unity worth 24 pointsAssassinate 100 enemies.

This one I'm not sure about... it seems pretty straight forward but sometimes those are the ones that get you. Might take me 3-4 sequences but with a little time this one shouldn't be THAT bad.

Dead Space 2Secret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Dead Space 2 worth 62 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

This one will most likely be one of the last ones I attempt as I have to go through the whole game to unlock it. I think I've made it to like chapter 4 so I believe I'd have to go through another 11. A good reason to get back to this game as I loved the first one.

WreckateerBuzz The TowerThe Buzz The Tower achievement in Wreckateer worth 13 pointsGet a Daredevil Bonus Icon with a Flying Shot

This one seems like it's pretty easy... this one I might also attempt to unlock sooner rather than later.

DestinyGiant SlayerThe Giant Slayer achievement in Destiny worth 26 pointsKill 100 Titans in PvP.

Probably not going to happen. I don't really like the game Detiny and I'm pretty sure that I won't like the PvP either. MAYBE if this is the last achievement I need. lol

Dark Souls IISecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Dark Souls II worth 13 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

Excited about this one! This gives me a reason to jump back into the world of Dark Souls!

Devil May Cry 4Filled with PrideThe Filled with Pride achievement in Devil May Cry 4 worth 13 pointsAcquire 10,000 Proud Souls.

I'll have to get back to you on this one... no clue how long it'll take and/or if it's even feasible to unlock in the time alotted.

Borderlands 2Secret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Borderlands 2 worth 27 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

I love me some Borderlands so this might be one I'm willing to invest some time into. Unfortunately I've only bean dived this one so it might take me a bit to get to it.

Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's RevengeHelium InhalerThe Helium Inhaler achievement in Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge worth 14 pointsGuybrush inhales some helium.

I just played through the story on the first Monkey Island and wasn't looking to get back into it but it's probably not all that tough so this might be one I also jump into.

SEGA Superstars TennisSecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in SEGA Superstars Tennis worth 29 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

Meh... no clue on this one. :p

Super Time ForceSpeed FreakThe Speed Freak achievement in Super Time Force worth 81 pointsComplete any level with 30 seconds remaining on the clock

Didn't really like this game but from what the solutions state... it doesn't seem like it would be that tough to do. I'd just have to go back and learn the mechanics all over again.

Lords of the FallenSecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Lords of the Fallen worth 34 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

This is another one I'm excited to play! I don't know how difficult it's going to be and/or how long I'll have to play it.. but I'll more than likely give this one a shot. Ok, just was looking at the walkthrough and I'm not sure about this one. A week isn't much time to work on all these games.

Halo: Spartan AssaultTerminatedThe Terminated achievement in Halo: Spartan Assault worth 50 pointsComplete Operation E

Don't like this game but perhaps I'll give it a shot. Maybe I'll find a co-op partner somewhere. ;)

Hexic HDMillionaire ExtraordinaireThe Millionaire Extraordinaire achievement in Hexic HD worth 66 pointsEarn a total lifetime score of one-million points across all of your games.

This is an easy one but could be time consuming. I'm not really sure how far I made it into this one. Might be something I play to pass the time.

Star Wars: The Force UnleashedForce Repulse MasteryThe Force Repulse Mastery achievement in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed worth 56 pointsDefeat 500 enemies with Repulse

Now THIS is an easy one. This might be the first one I go to! If memory serves me right, I've completed the game on normal so it would/should be an easy one to obtain.

Ms. Splosion ManSore Thumbs, Inflated EgoThe Sore Thumbs, Inflated Ego achievement in Ms. Splosion Man worth 68 pointsComplete all of the Single Player levels.

This one is probably going to be annoying. My last UHH match had me playing Super Meat Boy which I doubt I'll ever go back to. :P I'll more than likely attempt this one.

So all in all, I feel like getting 10+ is a pretty good goal. I actually calculated that there are 14 I could go for but some of them are time consuming so I don't want to get ahead of myself. Let's see how far I can go!

PermalinkWhat lies ahead for CGC...
Some of you may or may not know about CGC but for those of you that read and don't know.... we're a small group of casual gamers that have gotten together and created a webspace for gamers that fit our mold. If you'd like to check it out, you're more than welcome! Just go to http://casualgaming.forumotion.com.

As part of the promotion I'll also plan on posting a weekly blog with what is coming up and what we hope to accomplish. So without further adieu... let's get this this started!

Week of 8-11-2017 to 8-19-2017

Friday, August 11th at 9pm Eastern - Rainbow Six Vegas
Goals: MP achievements, kills and terrorist hunt if there is time.

Monday, August 14th at 9pm Eastern - Halo 4
Goals: Spartan Ops, I believe we're at 3 out of 5 complete

Tuesday, August 15th at 9pm Eastern - Midnight Club Los Angeles or Madden 13
Goals: Easier MP achievements

And on a personal level, I think I've decided that rather than bounce around in games when I'm not playing with a friend that I'm going to start from the top of my game list and go down the list until I am at least 66% completion (with owned DLC). When I get to that point if the game has been fun I'll more than likely continue. If not, onto the next game.

It's Friday peeps! Y'all have a great weekend and happy gaming!

PermalinkNo title because I'm not THAT creative. :)
As some of you may or may not know, I had started a personal challenge of getting my games list up to 75% completion by going from the letter A to Z. It started out pretty good but then I got hooked on Clicker Heroes. I can say I've accomplished getting Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation over the 75% and planned on working on Borderlands : The Pre-Sequel but as part of my most recent Bean Dive (which I don't think I'm going to end) I started Clicker Heroes and have been hooked.

So this "game" is pretty simple but it's got me hooked. I was playing a hybrid version but a lot of late nights and many wasted hours just sitting there waiting to get enough money finally took it's toll. I'm pretty much jumping on, spending the coins and getting off now. Again, I don't think I'm being the most efficient at the game but I've only got 3 achievements left and I'm pretty close on 2 of them. The level 3,600 will take some time.

When I haven't been playing that, a group of my friends and I have been working on games like Assassin's Creed III and we just recently started Halo 4 on Monday evenings. I also think we're going to jump into the world of Rainbow Six Vegas 1 on Friday nights. Shameless plug here... http://casualgaming.forumotion.com is the site. We're a bunch of very casual but welcoming and fun bunch.

I've also been working on knocking off some MP items with JelliedBigfoot and we've made some pretty good progress. Both of us completed most of Crimson Dragon and knocked some other low hanging fruit from the MP tree. I think we're going to get into Madden 13 next and then maybe some NHL 12 in lieu of the recent Server Closing notice from EA. Which means I have to work on FIFA 14, NHL 12, NHL 13 and I believe there might be another game or two before October. While I'm not necessarily a completionist, I would like to knock off whatever I can between now and then.

So if you read this and want to work on any of the games I mentioned, want to know more about our site and/or just want to know where my gaming goals are... consider yourself informed. :)
