It has been about a month. In that month I got a discounted gamefly subscription. It kind of went against the whole point of my blog, but that is ok. I got to try out some cool games and it kind of refreshed me after my nearly 3 week hiatus into the World of Warcraft.

I think the biggest reason for the increase in the number of available achievements is the addition of Assassin's creed ezio collection. I also tried out resident evil 7, but I got scared really early on and didnt play it again. The other game I picked up from gamefly is Star Ocean: Faithlessness and Integrity. This is mostly just a try it out thing. I know I feel like a traitor, but I really did enjoy SO: Last Hope.

With my birthday coming up, you can send me digital game codes if you want ;p , I am taking 2 3-day weekends. The first of which is this weekend. The agenda is as such:

Complete at least 10 achievements from the to-do list
Complete Ducati racing / watch Star Wars: Rogue One
Complete all the achievements on my to-do list from at least 3 games.

A 4th, not really related goal is to add all the dlc/games I have purchased via the spring sale to my list of games to choose from and to add physical only games to my gamefly list. I may soon incorporate 360 non backwards compatible games to this play style.

Alrighty. It's essentially week 4 of this experiment. It is working pretty well. I have really been enjoying my time gaming more with this method I have been using. It sort of keeps me organized but still helps my gaming A.D.H.D.

During the week I got a few achievements in Letter Quest while working towards my achievements on the to-do list. Letter quest isnt a bad game. It is a lot more fun without a word solver. I don't enjoy that aspect of progressing through it. I kind of hope I don't run into to many more achievements in it for awhile now.

Next up was NHL 17. It took me almost as long to open all my unopened packs for the HUT than it did to actually earn my hut achievement. It was a easy picking game to cross off the list.

Killer Instinct isn't ever on the to-do list due to the dlc nature of all the characters, however, I use it a lot to continue my daily streak on nights I work out.

A king's tale is really a strange little game. I didn't mind what I have played so far. again, I only went far enough to knock out all of the achievements on the to-do list and then stopped playing. I know it seems like a weird strategy, but it seems to be working for me.

Wolf among us is kind of a cool litte tell tale game. These never hold my interest long, so this playstyle may help with the boredom and redundency of the games.
