Better Than It Looks
At first glance this month may look fairly average, but a couple of factors have made it seems worse than it is. First is the release of Uncharted 4, one of the best games of this generation. I put roughly 20 hours into that game this month which stalled the achievements slightly.
Second was Borderlands 2, which boasts a mighty 69 achievements. I'm playing through it co-op with a friend, so I can only play it at certain times, and to be honest it killed my completion slightly.
I've also only played 8 games this month, but the progress made in those games is fantastic.
So it's time for the summary.MAY 2016
Games Played: 8
New Games: 3
Completed Games: 4
Completion Gain: 0.49%
In terms of Gamerscore and achievements, this has been one of my best months since starting these blogs, and if it wasn't for Borderlands 2, my gain would be closer to 0.60%
I'm hoping that I can really crack on with it this month, and hopefully get it to help my overall goal in the end.NEW GAMESNERO:
A fairly average puzzler, that was on sale and had easy achievements, at least if you can be bothered with the chore that is walking, I don't know who I could recommend this game to other than achievement hunters out there... So everyone of this site ALBEDO:
Another point and click puzzler, this one had me really excited given the fact that over 20 achievements popped in the space of an hour, but after that the remaining achievements took quite some time popping, and I really could't stand this game either. Glad it's over and glad it joins NERO in the completed games list.Borderlands 2:
The villain of the month. I loved this game on my solo play through of the 360 version, so my friend and I decided to play through co-op, about 8 hours in and 25 achievements won so far, it's definitely on it's way to repairing some massive damage caused by some other low scoring games.BACKLOGGED GAMESSkyrim:
I just started this at the end of last month, so i could only do so much, but I've surprised myself at just how much i got done adding another 27 achievements to the cause. the game currently sits at 84% so it's reached that individual target. I plan to get another 3 over the course of the month, so good stuff from Syrim.PDC Darts:
One of the most boring games I've ever played comes to completion, with big thanks to G0LDS0nic who isn't on the site for helping me with the online achievements, and also thanks to my own patience for helping me get through this depressing game. 8 achievements got finishing it off, and I couldn't be happierPure:
It's Back! And for the final time? I've finally given up on it, as I feel I've done all I can, 9 more achievements won bringing it's completion to 74% Not ideal, but it's a lot better than before.Iron Man:
A proud entry in my top 5 worst games of all time, I don't know why I ever started it. I don't even like the films. But i gritted my teeth and powered though this mess and won 19 achievements, leaving me with only 3 left to get, not going to bother as I really don't want to play the full game again on hard. It's looking good the way it is.Saw:
The final game of the month it it is Saw, started this one back in 2011, and stopped playing after only a couple hours, went back and got all 21 remaining achievements and the completion.
Well I believe this month has been great, and only Borderlands puts a slight mood on things, I'm getting really close to the finish line now, and I'm really excited for that. Will i get to 74% by the end of this month? Probably not, but I'm really going to try to do it. It's only 114 achievements after all.
