I remembered! That thing that was forgotten, but didn't mention in previous blogs. It's not a huge deal, but it's something I found interesting, nonetheless. It's strange, but I've actually been enjoying a game that's not directly tied to achievements and it's pretty awesome. Almost takes me back to a time before this achievement system corrupted me, lol.
Anyway, I've been really into these exclusive targets that HITMAN has implemented. So far, I've managed to earn a SA rating on every single one. I've been taking screenshots of each one too and here's the latest:
This most recent target was cool and that's because it was relatable to me. Since I dabble in networking occasionally, I was able to understand the neat dialogue. For instance, the target is a hacker and was poking fun at someone for still using 128-bit WEP encryption. Not everyone would have understood it, so I chuckled at that fact.
What I enjoy most about these targets is that it gets my heart racing. Perhaps I'm an adrenaline junkie and I just don't know it? Makes sense due to the crap I did in the past. Surprised I'm still alive when I look back, truth be told. But, yeah - once you're locked into these contracts, there are no do-overs. If you fail, you fail. Now, things have not always worked out perfectly for me. One mission went pear-shaped and had to think on my feet as a result. Fortunately, I passed with flying colors, but I do find that those are the best moments when your initial plan goes belly-up.
It's also enjoyable when I hop in a party chat with Sven and we tackle them together, somewhat. I don't know if he feels the same way, but I like it because we can offer additional tips to what worked for us and what doesn't in real time.
Hm. I'm having Déjà vu here... Weird. Perhaps I'm about to be a broken record here and bring up my goals again, mostly in an effort to keep myself updated and what not. Plus, I can't help it. They always tend to keep me motivated.
First off, the most important goal is become number one in the world...for Kinect. Big shocker there, right? Of course, I'm going for both score and completions, which might coincide with each other naturally. And, while I don't follow GS because it's inferior to TA score --
, I'm actually really close to becoming number one there. Will certainly get there before the others.
Speaking of Kinect, it seems my exclusive club might get to include another member. You know, the club where I'm currently the only one to have 100 completions in both Kinect and Windows Phone.
Hey. I have to known for something, right? That whole thing about me being known as the person who suggested streaking to this site is getting old.
With all that said, I'm contemplating on upping that ante by having at least 150 Kinect/WP Completions. It's possible. I would double my totals, but they only made 189 Kinect titles. Darn.
With the other two leaderboards I follow, I'm thinking reaching the Top 3 this year would be an admirable feat. Currently, I'm sitting pretty at:
On Rails (USA) - 6 (6,848 behind)
Health & Fitness USA - 4 (3,109 behind)
On Rails might be tricky, but then again, I haven't really dived into Child of Eden
, so that should help pave the way for me
Health & Fitness should come naturally with what I have planned. It's just going to take a few months due to some of the time sensitive achievements. And, even though I'm not loving the idea, but might start manipulating time/dates in an effort to save time, which may result in achievements with OFFLINE timestamps. There might be a way around that, so we'll see.
I'm also wanting to at least reach a 95% completion percentage by the end of this year. I don't remember where it all went wrong because I used to be so much better about completing games, lol. I might be able to trace it back to November 2013. That's a lot of years to make up for! I've been much better this year though. Been staying in the 90s and hopefully I can keep it there.
And, finally, my genre project. Still missing 11 genres from last update, but not in a huge rush. As long as Red Bull Crashed Ice Kinect
remains the only game in the Skating genre, no one's going to complete every genre before me, lol. That game is a different animal. Plus, with it only having three completions, it doesn't take long to cross reference. Additionally, one gamer has been inactive for over a year, so there's that too.
Currently, trying to finish up the Birthday Challenge and pretty confident that I'll be done by tonight. I was going to accompany a shot for each achievement I unlocked, but I stopped after a couple achievements the first day, lol. Plus, mixing alcohol and Kinect does not coexist well for me.
Think that's it for now. Have a good one.
