PermalinkMore Completions - Session 24
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 265 pointsAchieve a 10 game win streak on King of the Court in MyCAREER.

NBA 2K18Metric AnalysisThe Metric Analysis achievement in NBA 2K18 worth 39 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 40 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 75 pointsStop 10 random crimes in Manhattan during a single session
LEGO Marvel's AvengersKing of WakandaThe King of Wakanda achievement in LEGO Marvel's Avengers worth 14 pointsComplete the 'Classic Black Panther' level after achieving True Avenger status

LEGO Marvel's AvengersLack of InsightThe Lack of Insight achievement in LEGO Marvel's Avengers worth 28 pointsComplete 'Lack of Insight'


Game #5: TurnOn Achievements : This was actually very rewarding as my second completion of this blog! The achievements I earned were
TurnOnSuper Speed!The Super Speed! achievement in TurnOn worth 15 pointsGet 3 lamps in "Hazardous Lifts"
TurnOnThat's all, Folks!The That's all, Folks! achievement in TurnOn worth 13 pointsThe End!.. Or not?

TurnOnKeep Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'…The Keep Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'… achievement in TurnOn worth 16 pointsGet 3 lamps in "Get out of here!"


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.

PermalinkMore Completions - Session 23 (and Extra Life Hangover)
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 89 pointsPlay a game of NBA 2K18 against a friend in your MyCOURT.
NBA 2K18Development TimeThe Development Time achievement in NBA 2K18 worth 36 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 34 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 AvengersBe WorthyThe Be Worthy achievement in LEGO Marvel's Avengers worth 79 pointsCreate and play as a Custom Character equipped with Mjolnir
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!"
TurnOnHelp the PilotThe Help the Pilot achievement in TurnOn worth 13 pointsTurn on the signal beacons on the landing ground

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.

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.

In real life I signed up for Extra Life 2017 on the True Achievements team. The link is here https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.p...# to donate (I am currently in second place with $415 raised after a former student read of my stroke and gave back to the tune of $100 along with my aunt and my sister). I am hoping for a 24 hour stream with an awesome Party Chat of people from the TrueAchievements team.

What Happened Last Week

Game #1: The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Achievements : Oh, I forgot how much I love this game. I am in Level 39 and having a blast. I did seven quests including two from the Undaunted.

Game #2: NBA 2K18 Achievements : I continued to have a blast in this game. In MyCareer, my Athletic Rebounding Center is now 86 overall and I have unlocked 19 of my 20 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 achievement I earned was
NBA 2K18Secret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in NBA 2K18 worth 84 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement
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 30 and gained three levels with with Hawkeye (35), one each with War Machine (9), Blade (7), Elektra (7) and Hulk (7). 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 finished off three levels. I earned the achievements
LEGO Marvel's AvengersRise of UltronThe Rise of Ultron achievement in LEGO Marvel's Avengers worth 26 pointsComplete 'Rise of Ultron'
LEGO Marvel's AvengersUltron UndoneThe Ultron Undone achievement in LEGO Marvel's Avengers worth 26 pointsComplete 'Ultron Undone'
LEGO Marvel's AvengersA Sticky SituationThe A Sticky Situation achievement in LEGO Marvel's Avengers worth 14 pointsComplete the 'The Masters of Evil' level


Game #5: We Sing Pop Achievements : This game is not good or fun. It is a standard Karaoke game (which should be fine), but maybe because I am 39 I haven't heard of three quarters of the songs. I am putting this game into the long-term retirement pile until I have a house to myself. The achievements I earned were
We Sing PopHear me singThe Hear me sing achievement in We Sing Pop worth 20 pointsYou need to sing your first instrumental song
We Sing PopKaraoke starThe Karaoke star achievement in We Sing Pop worth 19 pointsYou need to sing your first karaoke song
We Sing PopYou singThe You sing achievement in We Sing Pop worth 15 pointsYou need to sing your first song

We Sing PopBe braveThe Be brave achievement in We Sing Pop worth 21 pointsYou need to sing in Expert mode for the first time
We Sing PopAlmost goodThe Almost good achievement in We Sing Pop worth 30 pointsYou need to score over 50000
The only redeeming quality of this game is that it insults you if your score is low (which all of mine were).

Completion Percentage: 43.93% (High: 43.93%, Low: 43.43%, Last: 43.93%)

Game #5: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier Achievements : This was my first completion in the last 21 sessions (woo!). I was thoroughly disappointed with the finale of this game as compared to some of Telltale's better products (the first two Walking Dead, along with the first Batman and the Wolf Among Us). The overall story and game were good though. I earned the achievements

Goal #5 We Sing Pop Achievements : I decided that I need some fun in my gaming again (as grinding XP in Marvel and NBA is becoming a chore), so although it might not be the wisest course, I will sing my way. I will sing seven songs this session. I should mention that this is a new game so my completion percentage will take a small hit.
