UHH Post-Mortem
So, there are still a few hours left in this round of UHH, but I'm gone really at this point. Mr Granstaff has had my number all week really and I just couldn't muster any additional effort to make this more competitive. As such, I figured it was worthwhile to look at the 5 rounds and do a little post about it.

Preliminary/Qualifying Rounds

Going 2-1 in the prelims was decent and I couldn't complain about it at all. My first round loss was one of the top competitors last year in UHH 1. In the round, I was most proud of two time consuming achievements (that might have caused the loss, but still really cool).

Guitar Hero LivePartial UniverseThe Partial Universe achievement in Guitar Hero Live worth 58 pointsGet 1,000 stars in GHTV by playing songs.

Song of the DeepSecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Song of the Deep worth 335 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

Partial Universe was probably a total of 750 stars or thereabouts to unlock. Thus, 150 songs at about 1 song per 5 minutes. Like I said, a huge time sink. Probably could have hit a couple other achievements instead of that one. Gearhead had me run through all of Song of the Deep. I went from Bean Dive all the way to 100% completion over a few nights for that. Well worth the playthrough. Fun game.

Round 2 in Qualifying saw only 1 achievement I feel truly pushed me and most of the others were just putting forth a little effort to get at.

Tom Clancy's The DivisionKnow No FearThe Know No Fear achievement in Tom Clancy's The Division worth 111 pointsFinish all of the missions at Level 30 on the Hard difficulty.

I had some of these missions done on hard with my brother when we ran the whole campaign together, but without any real tracking, I replayed quite a few missions. In the end, I ran just about every mission solo on hard. Got better at the Division even though I didn't really get any new or better gear.

In round 3, there are 5 that pushed me, but in very different ways.

PureUnlocked Stage 10The Unlocked Stage 10 achievement in Pure worth 21 pointsSuccessfully unlock the 10th Stage.

F1 2013ShowdownThe Showdown achievement in F1 2013 worth 56 pointsEarn a medal in each scenario of Team Mate Challenge in Scenario Mode.

DuckTales Remastered (Arcade)Tougher than the ToughiesThe Tougher than the Toughies achievement in DuckTales Remastered (Arcade) worth 125 pointsBeat game on Hard difficulty

Batman: Arkham Asylum (Xbox 360)Freeflow Combo 40The Freeflow Combo 40 achievement in Batman: Arkham Asylum (Xbox 360) worth 21 pointsComplete a combo of 40 moves (any play mode)

CastleStorm – Definitive EditionMegastarThe Megastar achievement in CastleStorm – Definitive Edition worth 156 pointsEarn all the stars of the Viking Elites campaign.

Pure and F1 2013 in the racing genre really had me for a while. I traditionally play Forza and F1 and ATV racing is very different. Those two took a lot just to learn how to play remotely decently to get those achievements. I enjoyed the Ducktales run (maybe just to hear the theme song again laugh). Felt pretty stupid with how many times I ran the last level just to find out how easy it was by watching a speed run. The Freeflow 40 combo for Batman: Arkham Asylum really just was cool to see how much better I have gotten since when I stopped playing it back in the day. All the new mechanics in later games really show how simple or basic the old game was. Finally, the Megastar achievement in Castlestorm was a grind, but worth it. Really saw a different way to win in order to 5 star every mission.

Knockout Rounds

My first knockout match really wasn't difficult in terms of achievements, just took the time to get through some of the achievements. The biggest ones were about me showing my growth in the last couple years. The biggest were in Gears of War, Doritos Crash Course, and Batman Arkham City.

Gears of WarCompleted Act 2 on InsaneThe Completed Act 2 on Insane achievement in Gears of War worth 52 pointsComplete Act 2 on Insane Difficulty

Doritos Crash CourseGoing for GoldThe Going for Gold achievement in Doritos Crash Course worth 121 pointsEarn a gold medal on each level

Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360)Campaign SilverThe Campaign Silver achievement in Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360) worth 83 pointsObtain 72 medals on the original Arkham City campaigns (as Batman)

These 3 represent going back to things I probably didn't have the patience for or ability to go after. Nice to see where I'm at now though.

Finally, my last match. I don't really have an achievement to point at that really matched the pride I have up to this point. A quick deficit and seeing how far behind I was in most games quickly sapped me of motivation. Mr Granstaff never quit and kept on laying on the pressure that I just couldn't reverse. I thought about options for a comeback yesterday, but that fell apart as I hit a wall in Rez and Dead Rising.

Another fun UHH for me all told however. 5 matches this year compared to the 3 I had last year. I never really look to win the whole thing, but I want to push myself to be happy or satisfied. This time around, I'm much more pleased. Making it to the of 256 isn't bad to be honest. Can't wait till the (hopefully) next iteration and another shot at meeting new people and pushing myself to my limits.

I wish I hadn't picked up KOF 98 during the sale. I could've finished it with the pass in an hour or so.

Not a terrible selection though even though a lot were part of the recent sale or GWG. My big win here is SoulCalibur....finally!!! dance

It's apparently been really bad as of late, but the connections are normally great.

I normally lag MASSIVELY 1-2 times a game, and never at a time where it's no big deal... always when I'm going for a ball

The 60 and 90 second achievements did not work for me in the German version by taking screenshots. Do I have to remember the question before pausing? Not easy...
