This week we are going for double the amount of achievements we had last week so I have to go to some easy games.

Stats
Completion Percentage - 43.40% - (High: 43.40, Low: 42.84, Last: 43.36)
Canada Music Ranking - 17th - (High: 17th, Low: 18th, Last: 17th)
TA Music Ranking - 221st - (High: 221st, Low: 246th, Last: 221st) I am less than 500 TA behind AlbinoKidElite in unrelated news.

Achievements For The Week

Low Completion Percentage Game: Far Cry 3 Achievements - Yet another game I came into with high expectations but others surpassed it.

Easy Game #1: BATMAN – The Telltale Series Achievements - Just popping an achievement each session. I am loving it so far.

Easy Game #2: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 Achievements - I am right at the beginning of this game so the achievements for my first playthrough should come relatively quickly.

Thanks for reading!

So I let my team down quite a bit last session, not realizing that my number of achievements won also couldn't be divisible by five and then I slept in, unlike most weekends so I missed the dozen messages I got. Sorry for the last time. In exchange, I will try to consistently put up more points for the team each week.

Stats
Completion Percentage - 43.36% - (High: 43.36, Low: 42.84, Last: 43.19)
Canada Music Ranking - 17th - (High: 17th, Low: 18th, Last: 17th)
TA Music Ranking - 221st - (High: 221st, Low: 246th, Last: 224th) I am less than 500 TA behind AlbinoKidElite in unrelated news.

Achievements For The Week

Low Completion Percentage Game: Crysis 2 Achievements - Another shooter that I got for free/cheap at one time and I haven't put any time into.

Disney Game: Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition (Xbox 360) Achievements - I finished off Marvel Battlegrounds and am going to continue with Finding Dory. I will also try to pop an achievement or two in the Windows 10 version.

Easy Game: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Achievements - I got a very quick achievement for getting six opponents in the air, so I still have to finish the jungle level.

Game I Want To Finish: Wheel of Fortune Achievements - This really should be called the "Open Game" as I can basically play anything here, but I want to get a few games knocked out this year. This is such a pain but I will grind through two more sessions: one for all of the props (about 10 games) and then another 10 or so to get me to fifty wins.

Music Game: Guitar Hero Live Achievements - I finished off most of the achievements in Guitar Hero Van Halen last session so I will take a break with Guitar Hero Live. As well I will intersperce some Rocksmith 2014 where I am at approximately 420 missions (out of 500).

I am feeling a lot better, and despite spending about three hours grinding wins in Wheel of Fortune I am having fun gaming again. For my GTASC teammates, I will put up about 2000-3000 next week so hopefully at least one of you guys can take a break. For those that aren't in my group, I am in a power team where all four of my teammates can put up major score and I am the wobbly fifth wheel.

In music news, I played drums in Guitar Hero Van Halen and forgot how much I love to play the drums! With little kids around, I haven't brought them out lately, but I might try to finish all the drum achievements this year.

Stats
Completion Percentage - 43.19% - (High: 43.19, Low: 42.84, Last: 43.15)
Canada Music Ranking - 17th - (High: 17th, Low: 18th, Last: 17th)
TA Music Ranking - 224th - (High: 223rd, Low: 246th, Last: 224th)

Achievements For The Week

Low Completion Percentage Game: Hunted: The Demon's Forge Achievements - This was intended to be a couch co-op game, but unfortunately all of my gaming friends IRL grew up :(

Disney Game: Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition (Xbox 360) Achievements - I got the 10000 XP achievement last week and have about ten missions left before I am done with Marvel Battlegrounds.

Easy Game: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Achievements - I got a very quick achievement for killing X number of opponents with X move (I forget), so I still have to finish the jungle level.

Game I Want To Finish: Wheel of Fortune Achievements - This really should be called the "Open Game" as I can basically play anything here, but I want to get a few games knocked out this year. I will either grind to 50 wins, get the millionaire achievement, or get the clothes/props achievement.

Music Game: Guitar Hero: Van Halen Achievements - I will again play this aiming to the achievement where I play all Van Halen songs with all instruments by playing five songs per session. Additionally I need 100 band career stars, 200 guitar career stars, 200 bass career stars (done), 200 drum career stars and 200 vocal career stars. My progress will be 100 vocal career stars (done), 100 drum stars, 200 guitar stars, 100 band career stars, 200 drum stars and 200 vocal stars. Quite a run I know :) As well I will intersperce some Rocksmith 2014 where I am at approximately 415 missions (out of 500).

This session took a long time because of illness, but I am beginning to feel better and have some inspiration toward gaming because I took the better part of two weeks off.

Achievements For The Week

Low Completion Percentage Game: Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved Achievements - Another game with good potential that I never really got into.

Disney Game: Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition (Xbox 360) Achievements - I will continue popping an achievement in this game and the Windows 10 version after finishing the XBox One version.

Easy Game: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Achievements - It took about an hour and a half, but I beat Gambit. Next up hopefully will be a quick achievement for beating all the flashbacks.

Game I Want To Finish: Wheel of Fortune Achievements - This really should be called the "Open Game" as I can basically play anything here, but I want to get a few games knocked out this year. I will grind through to 25 wins this session.

I have been sick and thus unable to even focus enough to game so far this week. Luckily one of our members is going to push 20K I think (and in his feed he said that he has 1800 games left!?) so we will have lots of firepower for the remainder of the competition.

I will switch up from now on to a low completion percentage game, a Disney/Marvel/Star Wars game, an easy game, a game I want to finish and finally a music game.

Stats
Completion Percentage - 43.09% - (High: 43.12, Low: 42.84, Last: 43.12)
Canada Music Ranking - 17th - (High: 17th, Low: 18th, Last: 17th)
TA Music Ranking - 223rd - (High: 223rd, Low: 246th, Last: 225th)

Achievements For The Week

Low Completion Percentage Game: Darksiders II Achievements - Once again a game that looked awesome when I picked it up, but hasn't latched into me.

Disney Game: Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Achievements - I will rescue all the fish in the Finding Dory game giving me the completion and next session will move on to Disney Infinity 3.0 (Xbox 360).

Easy Game: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Achievements - In this section, I will play games until I have beaten the main storyline (unless the completion is easy enough). I have started Wolverine a long time ago and it is time for the first playthrough to be done with.

Game I Want To Finish: Wheel of Fortune Achievements - This really should be called the "Open Game" as I can basically play anything here, but I want to get a few games knocked out this year.

Music Game: Guitar Hero: Van Halen Achievements - I will again play this aiming to the achievement where I play all Van Halen songs with all instruments by playing five songs per session. Additionally I need 100 band career stars, 200 guitar career stars, 200 bass career stars (done), 200 drum career stars and 200 vocal career stars. My progress will be 100 vocal career stars (done), 100 drum stars, 200 guitar stars, 100 band career stars, 200 drum stars and 200 vocal stars. Quite a run I know :) As well I will intersperce some Rocksmith 2014 where I am at approximately 401 missions (out of 500).
