As mentioned last session, Marvel Heroes Omega is shutting down its server December 31st so I have made that my priority, with other games tagged on just to keep making progress.

What Happened Last Week

Game #1 - Marvel Heroes Omega Achievements : Spider-Man is down to 45 million until he unlocks Level 4 for his weapon. Hawkeye got to Level 60 and Blade, Elektra and Hulk are all at 18 and War Machine is at 17.

Game #2 - NBA 2K18 Achievements : I played one game of MyTeam, unlocking the Seattle Supersonics jerseys I have been waiting for forever. In MyCareer, I unlocked an achievement
NBA 2K18My All-StarThe My All-Star achievement in NBA 2K18 worth 39 pointsBe named an NBA All-Star in MyCAREER.


Game #3 - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition Achievements : Oh how I love this game. I think I am going to go for the Daedric Weapons first and then the Mage's Guild. I popped the achievement
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special EditionUnboundThe Unbound achievement in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition worth 10 pointsComplete "Unbound"


Game #4 - LEGO Worlds Achievements : LEGO meets Minecraft (if it hasn't already done that). This will be next after I beat LEGO Avengers. I earned the achievement
LEGO WorldsRank - Learner Builder!The Rank - Learner Builder! achievement in LEGO Worlds worth 10 pointsStart your Adventure!


Game #5 - Mass Effect: Andromeda Achievements : I'm not quite sure what the issues were with this game as I enjoyed the first hour and a half. Perhaps the expectations of an outstanding series were impossible to live up to? I earned the achievements
Mass Effect: AndromedaFirst ContactThe First Contact achievement in Mass Effect: Andromeda worth 10 pointsLand on an alien planet.
Mass Effect: AndromedaPathfinderThe Pathfinder achievement in Mass Effect: Andromeda worth 16 pointsBecome the new Pathfinder.


Completion Percentage: 43.63% (High: 44.28%, Low: 43.43%, Last: 44.28%)
Games Completed: 2 The Walking Dead - A New Frontier Achievements TurnOn Achievements

Goal #1 Marvel Heroes Omega Achievements : My goal is 45 million with Spider-Man (to get the 4th level of his weapon). Then I will get Elektra up to Level 25 (7 levels I think) and a combined 7 levels for everyone else.

Goal #2 NBA 2K18 Achievements : Just inching along in this game, I will play one MyCareer and one MyTeam.

Goal #3 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition Achievements : I am going to take my time with this one and hopefully get Azura's Star this session (as well as level up a bit).

Goal #4 LEGO Marvel's Avengers Achievements : I will just finish another level in this game.

Goal #5 Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara Achievements : This section of my blog will now be the "Xbox 360 Game of the Week". For now it has to be a backwards compatible game as my 360 is at my Ex-Wife's house for the time being. I will do one playthrough this session.

Thanks for reading!

A bit of a reset this session. I still have lots of unfinished games that I am trying to complete, but I bought three games on the Black Friday sale and hate to have unstarted games (thus the low completion percentage). As well, it was announced that Marvel Heroes Omega is shutting down December 31st so I have to finish that up. The majority of my gaming time will be dedicated to that.

What Happened Last Week I actually scored no achievements.

Completion Percentage: 44.28% (High: 44.28%, Low: 43.43%, Last: 44.28%)
Games Completed: 2 The Walking Dead - A New Frontier Achievements TurnOn Achievements

Goal #1 Marvel Heroes Omega Achievements : My goal is 50 million XP this session (Spidey has about 95 million until he is done Level 4 of his weapon so that is a bit more than half way). I will also get Hawkeye (Level 49) to level 60 and get the rest of my heroes (Hulk (16), Elektra (16), Blade (16) and War Machine (12)) a combined 11 levels.

Goal #2 NBA 2K18 Achievements : Just inching along in this game, I will play one MyCareer and one MyTeam.

Goal #3 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition Achievements : Just going to pop the first achievement. I can't wait until this swallows up my gaming time eventually.

Goal #4 LEGO Worlds Achievements : Exactly the last thing I need is another LEGO game, but I have fun with them. I'll just quickly pop an achievement and move along.

Goal #5 Mass Effect: Andromeda Achievements : I hope this is good. One of my new goals (once I am done Marvel Heroes Omega) is to be playing one backwards compatible game at a time and the original Mass Effect is high on my list.

Along with pretty much everyone else on this site, I have a lot of uncompleted games. Out of the 200 or so, I have chosen 82 that I have prioritized as "games I want to finish in this lifetime". The list of new games on my radar is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition Achievements (when it goes on sale and I beat five games), Path of Exile (once I beat fifteen games), and finally Mass Effect: Andromeda Achievements (once I beat ten games).

I will now post a weekly blog where I give myself five goals for the week. Most are long term goals but with some prioritizing completions so I can start new games.

What Happened Last Week - just the main five games ignoring the Extra Life

Game #1: The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Achievements : I did a few quests, but considering the point of this blog is to get completions, I am going to switch this game out unfortunately. I'll come back to it I'm sure later on.

Game #2: NBA 2K18 Achievements : I continued to have a blast in this game. In MyCareer, my Athletic Rebounding Center is now 88 overall and I have unlocked all badges including Gold in Rebounding (it is 172,000 or something like that for Hall of Fame). I also played a lot of MyTeam and some MyGM as well. I beat the regular Domination earning Ron Artest. The achievements I earned were
NBA 2K18King of KingsThe King of Kings achievement in NBA 2K18 worth 279 pointsAchieve a 10 game win streak on King of the Court in MyCAREER.

NBA 2K18Metric AnalysisThe Metric Analysis achievement in NBA 2K18 worth 45 pointsPerform a stat plot using the Analytics Tool in MyGM/MyLEAGUE.
NBA 2K18The Draft And StashThe The Draft And Stash achievement in NBA 2K18 worth 51 pointsDraft a player that will remain overseas in MyGM/MyLEAGUE.
as the achievements are starting to slow down. The grind for 90 overall is real!

Game #3: Marvel Heroes Omega Achievements : I got Spider-man to level 50 and gained three levels with with Hawkeye (41), one each with War Machine (11), Elektra (11), Blade (9), and Hulk (9). There were no achievements earned this session.

Game #4: LEGO Marvel's Avengers Achievements : As this is my new "easy achievement" game that I am playing, I beat three level and earned a few miscellaneous achievements. I earned the achievements
LEGO Marvel's AvengersYou Asked For ItThe You Asked For It achievement in LEGO Marvel's Avengers worth 76 pointsStop 10 random crimes in Manhattan during a single session

Completion Percentage: 44.28% (High: 44.28%, Low: 43.43%, Last: 44.18%)
Games Completed: 2 The Walking Dead - A New Frontier Achievements TurnOn Achievements

Goal #1 NBA Playgrounds Achievements : Not that another NBA game is a chore, but there is a chance I will be able to beat this rather soonish. My goal will be to play seven games per session.

Goal #2 NBA 2K18 Achievements : My goal is to play seven MyTeam and seven MyCareer games and in the long term to upgrade all my badges.

Goal #3 Marvel Heroes Omega Achievements : I will earn ten levels of XP with Spider-Man and then seven levels combined for the rest of my heroes.

Goal #4 LEGO Marvel's Avengers Achievements : This will be the 'three levels from a LEGO game" goal. I will prioritize this as the majority of the achievements will come from here this session.

Goal #5 Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara Achievements : This on the other hand will be a challenging completion. The only achievement I have left is to get all items, which means at least ten playthroughs (one for each class in each game). I will do three playthroughs per session.

Along with pretty much everyone else on this site, I have a lot of uncompleted games. Out of the 200 or so, I have chosen 82 that I have prioritized as "games I want to finish in this lifetime". The list of new games on my radar is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition Achievements (when it goes on sale and I beat five games), Path of Exile (once I beat fifteen games), and finally Mass Effect: Andromeda Achievements (once I beat ten games).

I will now post a weekly blog where I give myself five goals for the week. Most are long term goals but with some prioritizing completions so I can start new games.

Thank you to everyone who donated to my Extra Life event (completed yesterday). I raised $430 and was very proud of my friends and family for stepping up. As for me, I lasted the twenty four hours, which included a two hour break in the middle where my niece and nephew came over (both aged seven) to play NBA Playgrounds Achievements and Minecraft: Xbox One Edition Achievements for a while.

In the evening, I played some online blackjack (and made some nice $$$). Does anyone else have experience with online casinos (other than telling me not to do it) regarding withdrawls?

What Happened Last Week - just the main five games ignoring the Extra Life

Game #1: The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Achievements : I didn't play any of this on Extra Life but had a blast playing once again. Unfortunately, I couldn't get all the lorebooks from Coldharbour (because I'm not far enough to break through the north wall), but I did a few quests as well.

Game #2: NBA 2K18 Achievements : I continued to have a blast in this game. In MyCareer, my Athletic Rebounding Center is now 87 overall and I have unlocked all badges including Gold in Rebounding (it is 172,000 or something like that for Hall of Fame). I also played a lot of MyTeam and some MyGM as well. The achievements I earned were
NBA 2K18InceptionThe Inception achievement in NBA 2K18 worth 99 pointsPlay a game of NBA 2K18 against a friend in your MyCOURT.
NBA 2K18Development TimeThe Development Time achievement in NBA 2K18 worth 41 pointsSend a player down to the G-League in MyGM/MyLEAGUE.
NBA 2K18Thanks, But No ThanksThe Thanks, But No Thanks achievement in NBA 2K18 worth 39 pointsRenounce the rights to one of your players in MyGM/MyLEAGUE.
as the achievements are starting to slow down. The grind for 90 overall is real!

Game #3: Marvel Heroes Omega Achievements : I got Spider-man to level 40 and gained three levels with with Hawkeye (38), one each with War Machine (10), Blade (8), Elektra (8) and Hulk (8). There were no achievements earned this session.

Game #4: LEGO Marvel's Avengers Achievements : As this is my new "easy achievement" game that I am playing, I beat a level and earned a few miscellaneous achievements. I earned the achievements
LEGO Marvel's AvengersCreate a Super HeroThe Create a Super Hero achievement in LEGO Marvel's Avengers worth 41 pointsCreate a Custom Character

LEGO Marvel's AvengersBorn YesterdayThe Born Yesterday achievement in LEGO Marvel's Avengers worth 29 pointsPlay as Vision - both playable characters


Game #5: TurnOn Achievements : Oh how I hate these skill-based jumping games (and the worst is yet to come as far as achievements). I popped the achievements
TurnOnCORPThe CORP achievement in TurnOn worth 14 pointsLight up the CORP signboard on the skyscraper
TurnOnDesperate SearchThe Desperate Search achievement in TurnOn worth 14 pointsGet 3 lamps in "Even Higher!"

TurnOnStorm Is Not an ObstacleThe Storm Is Not an Obstacle achievement in TurnOn worth 13 pointsGet 3 lamps in "The Roofs"

Completion Percentage: 44.18% (High: 44.18%, Low: 43.43%, Last: 43.93%)
Games Completed: 1 The Walking Dead - A New Frontier Achievements

Goal #1 The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Achievements : My goal this session is to get seven quests done.

Goal #2 NBA 2K18 Achievements : My goal is to play seven MyTeam and seven MyCareer games and in the long term to upgrade all my badges.

Goal #3 Marvel Heroes Omega Achievements : I will earn ten levels of XP with Spider-Man and then seven levels combined for the rest of my heroes.

Goal #4 LEGO Marvel's Avengers Achievements : This will be the 'three levels from a LEGO game" goal. I will prioritize this as the majority of the achievements will come from here this session.

Goal #5 TurnOn Achievements : So since this blog is supposed to be about completing games, I will beat three levels each session in TurnOn until I am done. Looking at the achievement list I have 9 achievements left so it should take three or four frustrating sessions as the hard levels are left.

Permalink24 Hours, 24 Games, 24 Achievements
Next Saturday (November 4th), I will be joining members of TrueAchievements in the 24-Hour Extra Life video game marathon. I will get up at midnight (think about what that means), and hopefully last until midnight the next day playing video games. You can contribute here: https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.p...#

I figured that since this is an achievement-related site that I should do some achievement-related goals, so I decided to choose 24 games and score an achievement in each, and then end with some fun games (if I have any time left). So here is the list:

TurnOn Achievements
NBA 2K15 Achievements
NBA 2K18 Achievements
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 Achievements
NBA LIVE 16 Achievements
NBA Playgrounds Achievements
LEGO Marvel's Avengers Achievements
Minecraft: Xbox One Edition Achievements
NBA LIVE 18 Achievements
Marvel Ultimate Alliance Achievements
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series Achievements
Batman: The Enemy Within - The Telltale Series Achievements
Happy Dungeons Achievements
WWE 2K16 Achievements
Forza Horizon 2 Achievements
NHL 15 Achievements
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Achievements
Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition Achievements
KickBeat – Special Edition Achievements
NHL 16 Achievements
Injustice 2 Achievements
LEGO The Hobbit Achievements
Forza Horizon 3 Achievements
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - Game of the Year Edition Achievements

Then I will play my fun games, where no achievements will be won:
NBA 2K18 Achievements
Marvel Heroes Omega Achievements
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Achievements
Rock Band 4 Achievements

Hopefully I can last the 24 hours!
Thanks for reading.
