PermalinkThe Eternal Struggle - Session 4
I have the same problem as almost everyone on this site: too many games, low completion percentage and low number of completions. To fix this, I am writing this blog to slowly cure these issues that I have. Each session I will choose my lowest completion percentage game and then three other goals I have for the week. They will be quick goals, but goals towards completing a game or a really challenging achievement. So my goals are increasing my completion percentage and finishing off games.

I am going to change some of my games this session. I was focused far too heavily on basketball and not completion percentage so I will change two of the games.

Stats
Completion Percentage - 43.90% - (High: 44.23, Low: 42.84, Last: 43.86)
Canada Music Ranking - 12th - (High: 11th, Low: 18th, Last: 12th)
TA Music Ranking - 159th - (High: 154th, Low: 246th, Last: 159th)
Games Completed in 2017 Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Achievements , BioShock (Xbox 360) Achievements , BATMAN – The Telltale Series Achievements

Achievements For The Week

Low Completion Percentage Game: Batman: Arkham Origins Achievements - My last game at 6% completion. I will just continue with the storyline.

Game To Complete #1: Just Sing Achievements - I am going to sing my way to a completion in this game. I will sing for an hour and then move onto another game. Next Up: Guitar Hero Live - another music game that still has lots of play left for me.

Game To Complete #2: The Walking Dead - A New Frontier Achievements - I am pretty sure that it has been announced that the fifth chapter is being released on the 25th so it is time to knock this one out of the park. I will play three achievements each session. Next Up: Disney Infinity 3.0 (360) - a fun game that I just have to finish the Finding Dory playset for a completion.

Game To Complete #3: NBA 2K16 Achievements - I will play two of the MyTeam games per session. The reason I chose this over the other NBA games that I was working on is that there is a window eventually coming up which will delete MyTeam (at least it did in NBA2K15) so this is potentially a missable achievement. I have 25 teams left and am about to play the Atlanta Hawks. Next Up: NBA 2K17 - I want to get both NBA 2K games done before NBA 2K18 is released in September/October.

They will be quick goals, but goals towards completing a game or a really challenging achievement. So my goals are increasing my completion percentage and finishing off games.

This session went ahead as scheduled. I quickly got the achievement in The Walking Dead 3 and then surprisingly got the end of season one in NBA 2K17 (despite having two games left in the season). My NBA 2K16 team is stacked and I am using Penny Hardaway and Oscar Robertson in NBA Playgrounds to good effect.

Stats
Completion Percentage - 43.86% - (High: 44.23, Low: 42.84, Last: 43.84)
Canada Music Ranking - 12th - (High: 11th, Low: 18th, Last: 12th)

Games Completed in 2017 Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Achievements , BioShock (Xbox 360) Achievements , BATMAN – The Telltale Series Achievements

Achievements For The Week

Low Completion Percentage Game: LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Achievements - I will hopefully be able to easily re-play the first level and pop the achievement for taking out a Stormtrooper while he is getting ready to shoot. If not I'll just play the next level.

Game To Complete #1: NBA Playgrounds Achievements - I am going to up this to two wins per session (regardless of how many games that actually takes me to finish). I am at the last game in Tokyo? (the second tournament), but I have only one gold medal so I may have to go back to get the medals. My team is currently Anfernee Hardaway and Oscar Robertson, but I sometimes sub in Alonzo Mourning (if I need a center) and Kyle Lowry (10 speed, 10 stealing and 9 three point shooting you can't ignore).

Game To Complete #2: NBA 2K17 Achievements - As mentioned above, I got the gift from the coach achievement this session and have two games left until I am done the season. I am at about 2.1 million fans (so that will take a bit of grinding) and considering I am leading the voting in MVP, Defensive Player of the Year and Rookie of The Year, I would hope I would be able to get a max contract. In humourous news, I got a text from Steph Curry inviting me to free agent with the Warriors next season. Considering I am a center, that would be quite a team.

Game To Complete #3: NBA 2K16 Achievements - I only played one game in this (against the '98 Spurs which I handled gracefully) and will try to play two this session.

Next on Deck: Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition (Xbox 360) Achievements - I have a statue of [b[Dory sitting beside my gaming TV that each day says to me "finish this game off so I can go into hiding with the rest of your Disney Infinity characters".

This session I played a lot of Clicker Heroes, which I am strangely addicted to. My max level has been about 250 so I am hoping to get to Level 300+ this time. The other games went ahead as planned. I may play two games in each of the NBA games to speed it up a bit from here on.

Achievements For The Week

Low Completion Percentage Game: The Walking Dead - A New Frontier Achievements - I loved the first two seasons and am hoping for great things from this game too.

Game To Complete #1: NBA Playgrounds Achievements - I am going to up this to two wins per session (regardless of how many games that actually takes me to finish). My current team is Clyde Drexler and Oscar Robertson (with Alonzo Mourning in the wings when I need a center). My team is good now and I am hoping for more.

Game To Complete #2: NBA 2K17 Achievements - I just have to finish off the season and the playoffs, then get a max contract and get 5,000,000 fans. I have three games left in the regular season (I will now play two each session) and then the playoffs come.

Game To Complete #3: NBA 2K16 Achievements - In keeping with the NBA tradition, I will go back to NBA 2K16 to finish off the MyTeam before I get locked out. I have about 20 or 25 games left but my team is stacked. I just beat the Timberwolves with Garnett and Sprewell and will up this to two games per session.

Next on Deck: Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition (Xbox 360) Achievements - I have a statue of [b[Dory sitting beside my gaming TV that each day says to me "finish this game off so I can go into hiding with the rest of your Disney Infinity characters".

Last week I purchased NBA Playgrounds Achievements and had some fun with it. I was hoping for NBA JAM, but Playgrounds is a poor comparison. The only defense is to spam the steal button and it is impossible to block shots or rebound. So I have chosen to play with guards. I like how you are given cards each time you level up so you can get more players and I also like how there is no option to buy more packs or the players that you need as I would spend the $$$.

Achievements For The Week

Low Completion Percentage Game: The Walking Dead - A New Frontier Achievements - I loved the first two seasons and am hoping for great things from this game too.

Game To Complete #1: NBA Playgrounds Achievements - Just playing one win per session (regardless of how many games that actually takes me to finish). My current team is Clyde Drexler and DeMarre Carroll (with Alonzo Mourning in the wings when I need a center). Here is hoping for a big man defense patch or a better player to go with Drexler.

Game To Complete #2: NBA 2K17 Achievements - I just have to finish off the season and the playoffs, then get a max contract and get 5,000,000 fans. I will play one game each session (yes that will take a while).

Game To Complete #3: NBA 2K16 Achievements - In keeping with the NBA tradition, I will go back to NBA 2K16 to finish off the MyTeam before I get locked out. I have about 20 or 25 games left but my team is stacked. I will play one game each session (yes that will take a while).

Permalink5 Hours At A Time - Session 4
So I made three purchases this session, and am about to make a fourth. The three games I bought were LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Achievements (I'm a sucker for LEGO games), The Walking Dead - A New Frontier Achievements (I enjoyed the first two and I like the idea of an interactive movie...which this is rather than a game) and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series Achievements (I will buy almost anything related to superheroes). I will also purchase on Tuesday NBA Playgrounds Achievements , which will either be really bad or a lot of fun.

Stats
Completion Percentage - 43.85% - (High: 44.23, Low: 42.84, Last: 44.23)
Canada Music Ranking - 11th - (High: 11th, Low: 18th, Last: 11th)
TA Music Ranking - 157th - (High: 154th, Low: 246th, Last: 157th) - just a few hundred TA behind AlbinoKidElite
Games Completed in 2017 Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Achievements , BioShock (Xbox 360) Achievements , BATMAN – The Telltale Series Achievements

Achievements For The Week

Low Completion Percentage Game: Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series Achievements - The advantage to buying new games is that they appear in your "Low Completion Percentage" pile for a while. The disadvantage is that your completion percentage tanks (see above).

Game To Complete: LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Achievements - Continuing on my list of games to complete, I am not really close in this, but it is the oldest LEGO game that I own so I will hopefully pop some achievements.

Open Game: Marvel Ultimate Alliance Achievements - Even though I started a gaming session for "Transformers: War For Cybertron" (which I hope allows me to stop playing it MP), I will grind away at one of my favourite games for the 360.
