POG BLOG 16/2/17 - Gaming A to Z: A for Assassin's Creed
Hello one and all,

So for any longtime readers you'll know that this blog can be quite scatter brained and experimental in terms of format and sections I often introduce, scrap and recycle into something different.

Well I felt the need to stretch my writing legs recently (ignore the shoehorned metaphor) laugh and do something to both motivate me to try and play games I'm yet to touch, that just sit around collecting dust alongside something interesting to write about that has a degree of structure to it.

So with that in mind I'm gonna do a gaming A to Z which is pretty explanatory but for those that don't know, I essentially select a game that starts with the corresponding letter of that week and try and get as far as possible / complete within that week and move on to the next letter the following week. Simple and hopefully an interesting read wink .

Music Album A to Z

So with these blogs I've always liked to include a music track as a bit of background sound as a lot of people seem to like that and I've mostly covered gaming music but I thought it would be fun to do a album A to Z in tandem with the Gaming A to Z as a fun tie-in.

My music tastes tend to be wide ranging so hopefully there will be some fun picks u may not have heard and enjoy but we'll see, also I may find on certain weeks like Y I might not have an album already chosen and will have to do some searching which will be fun for me too.

So for A I thought I'd go with a pretty predictable/ mainstream pick with American Idiot by Green Day. While I can't say Green Day's later works have been easy listening for me and while some of their earlier stuff like "Dookie" was good in their own right, I find this album to be indicative of Green Day finding their sound and running with it.

Assassin's Creed

So my pick for this week is Assassin's Creed which I have only briefly touched upon due to the "Ultimate Head to Head 2 Contest" which I quite enjoyed doing and look forward to the 3rd instalment of the contest. Currently stat-wise I sit on 5/44 achievements unlocked equating to 100 gamer-score which gives me the quite the margin for improvement which is good.

Also this one of the rare examples of a series that I played out of sequence having played 2 and brotherhood previously. I hope this should be a relatively doable completion outside of the associated collectables, of which there is quite a few but no miss-able achievements so that's something.

Choose Next Weeks Game

So I thought it would be nice to include the interactive element of listing my games for the next letter to help me choose, so feel free to give your opinions on games that jump out at you for one reason or another.

B for...

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts - 43 of 50
Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360) - 21 of 56
Batman: Arkham Origins - 12 of 50
Battlefield 4 - 51 of 67
Bayonetta - 10 of 50
Binary Domain - 4 of 50
BioShock (Xbox 360) - 29 of 50
BioShock 2 (Xbox 360) - 55 of 68
BioShock Infinite (Xbox 360) - 70 of 80
Blue Dragon - 15 of 43
Blur - 41 of 50
Bully: Scholarship Edition - 6 of 38

Quite a few to choose from which is nice also feel free to mention other titles that I have not listed that are letter appropriate as I might pick it up.

Random 100 To Do List Challenge

So I've created a random list of 100 Achievements through the "To Do List" system and hope to work through some of them each week to give the blog an overarching element to it as well which will be fun but challenging hopefully.

Luckily one achievement on the list is for Assassin's Creed which is:

Assassin's CreedEagle's EyeThe Eagle's Eye achievement in Assassin's Creed worth 21 pointsKill 75 guards by throwing knives.

Gonna also go for the other achievements related to A games as well as there's a nice cluster of them;

Alan WakeChild of the Elder GodThe Child of the Elder God achievement in Alan Wake worth 17 pointsHave a rock'n'roll moment without dropping to a low health state.

Alan Wake's American NightmareGlorious DawnThe Glorious Dawn achievement in Alan Wake's American Nightmare worth 13 pointsSurvive until dawn in any Arcade Mode level.

Alan Wake's American NightmarePoetry in MotionThe Poetry in Motion achievement in Alan Wake's American Nightmare worth 64 pointsGet a six-minute survivor streak and over 100,000 points in an Arcade level.

Alice: Madness ReturnsThat's Using Your HeadThe That's Using Your Head achievement in Alice: Madness Returns worth 43 pointsComplete Off With Her Head Part 2 in under 6 minutes

Alone In The DarkNOT ALONE ANYMOREThe NOT ALONE ANYMORE achievement in Alone In The Dark worth 46 pointsFinish the episode without skipping any sequence.

Army of TWO: The Devil's CartelBarbarianThe Barbarian achievement in Army of TWO: The Devil's Cartel worth 13 pointsDestroyed 500 objects

On average I'll need to get 4 achievements a week so I could potentially start quite strong if I can achieve this but either way this can add an extra flavour to my gaming habits at the very least which is cool.


So I thought it be nice to keep track of my stats to see How beneficial this exercise is, so currently I stand at:

206, 367 TA Score
112, 396 Gamerscore
66.91% Completion Percentage

Also I'm part of the group The Exodus for the GTASC 2017 challenge so I might as well keep track of that too

The Exodus

Currently there are 235 Teams remaining.

Final Thoughts

So this should be a fun project feel free to join me and do the same and I'll look at incorporating some more stuff for next week and as a last goal I'm gonna aim to have half of these A to Z games completed within there respective weeks so if all goes well I can have 13 more games be added to the completed pile.

Bye for now wave

Kind of wish I'd just bowed out this week, on the individual side anyway. It's eating way too much into my goals progress!

Damn seeing myself dropping below the cutoff 15 minutes before the end hurts. So close. 29 below. Oh the pain of defeat
