POG BLOG 30/4/17 - Gaming A to Z: H For Hitman: Absolution
Hello one and all, welcome to blog #100

100 Blogs, crazy eh? Well I've got to say when I came back to blogging in February, I did so with the intention of not only motivating a resurgence in my gaming habits as far as completing games goes alongside wanting to bring my total number of blogs from 92 to 100. I wanted to do this for no other reason that 92 was just a weird number to leave things on, I think achievement hunting is definitely the root cause of why numbers have to have some sort of symmetry of evenness to them.

Weird considering I'm not someone who is for uniformity in most cases but numbers seem to be the exception.

On a side note, I noticed recently a few people have also got on board with this challenge and are doing their own blog series on it which is cool to see. Also challenging myself today, to breakout of a nasty writing habit I have. which is using "So" as an opener for sentences, guess it's kind of a writing crutch. Going well so far, yay for me! clap

Let's move swiftly on, to some far-out tunes!

Music Album A to Z

Eve 6's Horrorscope

Got to say this was an instant pick for the "H" slot, one of my favourite albums within the Alternative Rock genre, mostly cause I'm just a fan of how much word play is interspersed throughout the album.

As for a recent track, I'm back on that Imagine Dragon's kick with their latest release "Thunder"

Very chorus heavy and It didn't click with me originally but it certainly has a "grow on you" kind of quality.

Anyway, that's my music choices for this week, let me know what types of music/bands you listen to. Would be interesting to hear if this segment is interesting to you guys or if I should scrap it / change it up in some way. compute

Gaming Recap

This week has been an interesting one, felt like a very combat orientated week having played some; Golden Axe: Beast Rider, Batman: Arkham City's Combat Challenges, Fairytale Fights, Alan Wake and a bit of Crackdown. If you're interested in what achievements I earned for each game I will list them in a spoiler tag after speaking about them.

Starting with the minor stuff, I did the hard playthrough of Fairytale Fights alongside finding all the weapons, which is a real hassle due to the lack of knowing exactly what you're missing and the randomness of some weapons appearing. Having done that I have decided to take a little break from it before jumping into the co-op side of things.

*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Similarly I dipped into the combat challenge side of Batman: Arkham City which is pretty easy comparatively to Arkham Asylum in my opinion. Having to do it for 4 characters isn't very fun though and speaking of not fun I think the stealth stuff is a lot worse in this game. Think I'm gonna take a break for a couple weeks before my inevitable return on the 14th of May for my next Calendar Man visit. Oh and I did the final few things I had leftover for the first playthrough of the game.

*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Alan Wake has been a slow starter for me as I've only just got round to doing my nightmare playthrough but I have got a few miscellaneous achievements done so I have something to show for it.

*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Crackdown was quite an impulsive play yesterday, as I was in need of a quick achievement for the streak and I figured a bit of progress on Crackdown wouldn't hurt. All the collectables make finishing this game so disorientating though, so chipping away at it each week maybe the way forward.

*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Finally I can move on to my experience or reintroduction rather with Golden Axe: Beast Rider so I spent most of last Sunday working on one level which I did after about 5 hours lol. The game is really tough and demands patience and memory plus a little luck but I've got to say it was really rewarding to finally do it and get that oh so sweet sound of the achievement unlocking. 4 levels now remain like a lot of my games it's slow progress.

Hitman: Absolution

This week's game as nominated by you fine folks is Hitman: Absolution, A game I have briefly touched on, only having done the contract mission stuff and the first level of a game.

I'm really looking forward to this one as it will break up the sometimes-monotonous task of completing games that only have things like collectables left. Making this experience a breath of fresh air with a story to experience plus it's the first stealth game to enter the list so nice variety also.

What's my current standing with the game? Well currently I have unlocked 12 of 46 achievement with a gamerscore value of 230 out of the 1000 available gamerscore.

TA Playlist

This month's game, Alan Wake hasn't been completed quite to the timely manner I was hoping but I'm invested in it again and it's in my rotation of games so it was somewhat of a success albeit I only got 2 achievements all month from the game.

Also kudos to the event team think this is a great idea and the associated podcast was a lot more interesting than I expected it to be.

This leads onto May and the Game of choice is Darksiders, once again a game I have previously played but I do have to revisit it for a hard playthrough. So, that's something I suppose, shame Darksiders 2 can't be completed, achievement-wise that is.

Final Thoughts

A quite lengthy blog this week with the minor addition of the achievement I have earned being added into spoiler tags not sure if this is a worthwhile addition. Maybe I'll mix things up next week. maybe not. Not sure, thoughts?

Also, didn't realise the milestone was so close so couldn't organise a proper giveaway but I have a few Gwent Beta codes laying around. If you want one, let me know. wink
