POG BLOG 24/3/17 - Gaming A to Z: E for Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard
Hello one and all, welcome to blog #97
So it's been longer than expected, after failing to get into Deus Ex after multiple attempts spanning over the 13 days since the last blog I decided to give up the ghost as it's either due to the fact that the stealth isn't fun in that game (imo) or I'm just not in the mood for that kind of game so maybe I'll revisit at a later date.
Anyway on wards and upwards Music Album A to Z
Blink 182's "Enema Of The State"
So this week I struggled to find something polarising that I was familiar with and began with "E" so I have kinda cheated and used another Blink 182 album but my Justification being that the line-up drastically differed the one from the "California" album.
I really need to mix it up in a major way but to reconcile the issue I will once again leave you with something different that I'm digging. Kasabian's new single "You're In Love With a Psycho"
Let's roll right along with the gaming recap!Gaming Recap
So as mentioned previously my return to Deus Ex wasn't as successful as I would have hoped however not all was lost as I made minor progress with it and grabbed a few achievements alongside making more progress with Bioshock, which should be completed shortly with only the final level to go. Other than I played more Crackdown and Bayonetta both which I'm enjoying as chill mindless fun and helping me keep my gaming streak alive more on that later.
Also I've been playing Magic: Duels as a chill long winded side project with a lot to do to obtain 1000g.
Normally I put all my stats at the bottom but since it ties better here, I'll throw in my achievement gains for them titles to bring you up to speed as I seem to have a few games on the go at the minute which is nice.
Crackdown 35 of 50 (+1)
Deus Ex: Human Revolution 12 of 49 (+6)
Bayonetta 14 of 50 (+1)
Magic: Duels 29 of 49 (+4)
Bioshock 49 of 51 (+3)
Which leads me onto this weeks project... Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard
So this is a relatively simple second playthrough on hard scenario with my current total being 47/50 with 925/1000g.
While there was some awesome suggestion with Earthlock being one I'm wanting to play in the future, I decided a nice straight forward finish would help re-motivate me after a completion drought. Elite Dangerous on the other seems a lot of work and not my kind of game tbh. Choose Next Week's GameF for...
F.E.A.R. Files 9 of 41
Fable III 52 of 60
Fairytale Fights 33 of 49
Fallout 3 58 of 72
Fallout: New Vegas 46 of 75
Final Fantasy XIII 27 of 35
Final Fantasy XIII-2 2 of 31
Forza Motorsport 2 31 of 44
Fuse 3 of 40
A very interesting mix of titles for a change, spoiled for choice hopefully your suggestions can help guide me to a consensus. Random 100 To Do List Challenge
Congratulations, you won the following Achievements from your ToDo list:
A Mother's Love in Bayonetta for 26 points
Sage Animist in Magic Duels for 19 points
So 97 now becomes 95 so once again that 1 a week snails pace has yet to be changed but progress is progress and it's nice to see that number dwindle. Think this week I will set the bar low with just another achievement from Bayonetta;
However looking at the list there's quite the cluster of achievements for "F" games so that might be a lucrative week but I wouldn't bet on it. StatsLast Weeks Totals

Unfortunately last week saw the end of the road for the GTASC team I was part of The Exodus and I suppose I should shoulder most of the blame some really poor performances but I kinda enjoyed might enter next year.
However luckily there's another TA event or rather con-current event I can take part in which is the TA Playlist which is a community lead, book club style of event where each month a game is chosen and you play through it that simple.
April's the maiden voyage of the event with game being Alan wake which place right into my wheel house as it's a game on my too finish list along a couple achievements being on my "To Do List" so should be a very fun supplement to the blog plus it's monthly so it's a nice arch through each month as far a longer term goal to go for. Let me know if you're playing along and for that matter feel free to do the same sort of thing with any game I play.
I so was gonna document how far I could get my achievement streak up to and while I can't compete with the heavy hitters who have years in the bag, it's more a personal goal of beating my current best of 61 days and currently I stand at 35 days which makes this pretty doable if I don't forget of course. Final Thoughts
So that brings another blog to a close, hope u enjoyed and see you again for more of the same.
