Hello one and all, welcome to blog #95.
Let me start be saying thanks, today marks 5 years of blogging, whether it be a blog that rambled more than a countryfile episode, a think piece from this thoughtless bastard or just the random things I throw on here.
If you have commented, followed or just simply enjoyed what I write then I consider myself to have hit the bulls-eye as all I aim to do is to provide something people can get something from.
So Happy 5 Year Anniversary Giveaway
As a way of saying thanks I wanted to do a Giveaway and all you have to do to be included is comment on this blog and I'll announce the winner on the next blog via random.org, for what for you may ask?
Well I have a Copy of Quest of Dungeons for Xbox One to give to one of you fine folks and thanks again to upfall studios for taking part in this!
Anyway with that out the way, onto the music Music Album A to Z
So this week I was stuck thinking what albums I liked beginning with "C" and I only had one come to mind and It is probably gonna be the most recent album I'll post during this series unless something comes up in the meantime, that album being...Blink 182's California
Now I want to preface this by saying that I wasn't expecting this album to be good due to a significant lineup change which can be hit and miss and had worked out the first time Blink 182 did this but with the drummer.
As well as saying that their early stuff is a lot more solid than this album, however with that being said and this could be due to the surprise factor I found it to be a great album that showed evolution in both tone and content compared to their early due to it reflecting their current age rather than their demographics age which shine through best with the titular track that said there's still some of there old ethos in some of the tracks kind of a weird 50/50 split.
Game time, bitches! (Not sure why I've gone with this but it sounds neato)Gaming Recap
So the last week predominantly consisted of me revisiting Rapture in Bioshock which has almost come to a close with me current at Olympus Heights with a few levels left to go which I should hopeful have me able to move forward with this week's choice.
I did do a bit on Bayonetta, when I say a bit I mean a level as I was so rusty with the game I had to relearn what to do and how, so I will probably return to this game every week for a bit to allow me to not forget what I'm doing but don't hold me to that.
Which brings me onto this week's choice... Crackdown
Now I was going to play a Crash Time game as Finnan suggested it and it sounded like something right up my alley but seeing as getting a copy seems more elusive than I first thought I will have to pick one of my list.
So it would seem I'm a glutton for punishment as my collectables quest continues with more orbs than you can shake a stick at, I have a feeling this might not be as easy as getting orbs in Spyro 2.
Currently I'm at 18/50 achievements with 340/1250 Gamerscore so lots to get. Choose Next Weeks Game
Well this week you gonna be spoiled for choice as I have D's for days, so go ahead pick me a D game.

Also I do have Dark Souls on my list but think I might save it for a separate blog series as it will probably take me a few weeks, after all my reflex's aren't what the used to be *shakes fist up to the sky in defiance*.Random 100 To Do List ChallengeCongratulations, you won the following Achievement from your ToDo list:
Fully Researched Spider Splicer. in BioShock (Xbox 360) for 13 points
So I now stand at 98 Achievements to go, thought I would just copy the message over rather than posting them here fancy image doohickeys. Ah what the hell have it anyway.
So this week I would like to pick up the current snails pace I'm working at, I doubt it though this could become one of them things.
Firstly there's a Crackdown achievement
The Body Juggler achievement in Crackdown worth 30 pointsUse explosives to keep a body up in the air for 10 seconds
I'll try again for this one
The A Mother's Love achievement in Bayonetta worth 26 pointsDefend ????? during the ???????, ensuring ????? takes no damage.
I won't push my luck with a third as I feel Crackdown might take a while.Stats

Also I'm part of the group The Exodus for the GTASC 2017 challenge and this week our team is a man down but Finnan has knocked it out of the park with 208 achievements while I stand on a lowly 10 currently as we need 314 for the bonus of double last weeks amount of achievements,The Exodus
200 Teams now remain. Final Thoughts
So this week has been a bit of a dude as far as the challenges are concerned but that being it's a cool week for the blog so I'm gonna celebrate it's 5 Year anniversary in style. Yeah I'm talking single candle in a jam doughnut lol.
