Hey Guys,

Let's look at what I've been playing this week! smile

XBOX ONE

Lords of the Fallen

Lords of the Fallen Achievements

I have started my second playthrough as a 'Rogue' character and I'd say i'm about halfway through. Not impressed at the variety offered by this game for classes other than warrior tank. If you try anything other than this, it'll be harder and I don't think that's fair. Once I've finished this playthrough I will hopefully unlock:

Lords of the FallenWay of the rogueThe Way of the rogue achievement in Lords of the Fallen worth 164 pointsComplete the game as Rogue


Lords of the FallenSecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Lords of the Fallen worth 100 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement


Lords of the FallenSecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Lords of the Fallen worth 82 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement


That'll leave one single playthrough left for:

Lords of the FallenWay of the clericThe Way of the cleric achievement in Lords of the Fallen worth 173 pointsComplete the game as Cleric


I think by the time I've finished my third (although technically my fourth) playthrough I won't want to see any more of this game, so I have decided against the DLC.

Slime Rancher - COMPLETED

Slime Rancher Achievements

This game was an absolute pleasure to play, and a real surprise. One of my favourite games so far this year and it was free! I have kept it installed and I hope to see more content in the future because I would love a good reason to go back to it.

Happy Dungeons

Happy Dungeons Achievements

After giving up with Dungeon Defenders me and my wife decided to give this a try for some couch co-op together. Although it's possible to play couch co-op it has one quite huge flaw and that is splitting the screen into four; despite only two of us playing together. She has decided not to carry on playing so I will do my best to see what I can do with this title on my own.

Prominence Poker

Prominence Poker Achievements

Had a few great games on this and won my first tournament! Still have no idea what the achievements are but they seem to be coming in by themselves without me worrying and I'm enjoying the poker action.

Sonic Mania

Sonic Mania Achievements

I completed Sonic 4: Episode II not so long ago and to be honest, I didn't to see any more Sonic after that. Maybe its nostalgia talking but it just wasn't very good and didn't feel like an evolution of the Sonic games I grew up with on my Mega Drive II.

Then this came along.

I've only played the first level but I'm absolutely LOVING it. It's. Bloody.Awesome.

This is the best Sonic game to come out since the 90's in my opinion.

I suppose for now I'm just trying to unlock:

Sonic ManiaSee You Next GameThe See You Next Game achievement in Sonic Mania worth 95 pointsAchieve any ending


Attack on Titan

A.O.T. Wings of Freedom Achievements

Within 5 minutes of the first mission I played I was frustrated, annoyed and wanting to smash my XBOX to pieces. What's more, I have hundreds of missions still ahead of me, including grinding to level weapons I sure as hell won't to ever use after I've finished the game. I'll be playing this game forever. I don't even want to watch the new series that's coming out. Well, that's a lie, but I really hate this game now.

No 360 games this week.

If you have played any of my current titles and have some advice, that would be great!

Let me know what you think!

Until next week,
SGW

My 10th week toast

Thanks to everyone who has been reading my blog, which granted probably isn't many laugh

XBOX ONE

Overwatch

Overwatch: Origins Edition Achievements

Well, despite the awful connection... I managed to get the Volley achievement and finish up the Summer games event!

Now I can return to trying for:

Overwatch: Origins EditionCrateredThe Cratered achievement in Overwatch: Origins Edition worth 240 pointsHit 6 enemies with a single use of Doomfist's Meteor Strike in Quick or Competitive Play.


Slime Rancher

Slime Rancher Achievements

Did I mention I love this game? I have nearly finished Slime Rancher and just have a handful of achievements left. The one i'm currently trying for is:

Slime RancherHat TrickThe Hat Trick achievement in Slime Rancher worth 170 pointsObtain at least 3 gold plorts from a single gold slime


I'm working on opening the slime vaults, which are guaranteed to have gold slimes in but hopefully I get lucky and spot one in the wild and then it won't be necessary.

Prominence Poker

Prominence Poker Achievements

Where the hell did this come from? Well I actually like poker and wanted a game that I just didn't give a damn about the achievements on. This seemed to fit the mold perfectly.

I have no idea what the achievements are but I've earnt a few just by being awesome at poker.

Doubt this will ever be a complete but I don't care, it's purely recreational.

I realise that sounds like a weird thing to say, considering all computer games are recreational but you know what I mean...

If you have played any of my current titles and have some advice, that would be great!

Let me know what you think!

Until next week,

Hey again everybody,

Not a lot to report this week...

XBOX ONE

Overwatch

Overwatch: Origins Edition Achievements

I have been spending time playing the summer games event on Overwatch: Lúcioball

Summer Games for Overwatch: Origins Edition

Unfortunately, I am finding this completely unplayable cry

The connection just doesn't keep up with the ball fast enough for any kind of decent play, at least not from my end. I have two of the event achievements but because of the connection issues I don't think the volley achievements is possible:

Overwatch: Origins EditionVolleyThe Volley achievement in Overwatch: Origins Edition worth 48 pointsScore a goal in Lúcioball with a shot taken from at least 3 meters in the air.


I'll keep lagging around until the event finishes, maybe i'll get lucky and it'll unlock...

Slime Rancher

Slime Rancher Achievements

This was an absolute delight to discover! I am really pleased I gave this a try and even more pleased that it was free! A superb little game and very enjoyable, I'm going to be spending a lot more time back on this once Lúcioball is over.

If you have played any of my current titles and have some advice, that would be great!

Let me know what you think!

Until next week,
SGW

Hey again everybody,

I recently managed to start and finish up... nothing! It's going to happen some weeks cry

So what have I been doing?

XBOX ONE

Lords of the Fallen

Lords of the Fallen Achievements

I actually started this game back in 2015 and for some reason stopped playing it. Going back to it now, I see that it is a very good game in many respects but navigating the world can be a bit of a nightmare. It's not quite on the level of Dark Souls, but the similarities are obvious. I have finished my second playthrough now and have two more to do with the other magic classes. I'm not really feeling two more playthroughs as I still don't know the game well enough to navigate around on my own.

Overwatch

Overwatch: Origins Edition Achievements

I managed to get the Airstrike achievement for Doomfist toast

Overwatch: Origins EditionAir StrikeThe Air Strike achievement in Overwatch: Origins Edition worth 144 pointsGet a killing blow with Doomfist's full-power Seismic Slam in Quick or Competitive Play.




I was pleased. I actually managed it again that evening a couple more times but didn't record them.

That's it to be honest...

If you have played any of my current titles and have some advice, that would be great!

Let me know what you think!

Until next week,
SGW

PermalinkBoosting sessions / walkthroughs - Did you earn that achievement?
Well no. You didn't.

I think for most of us, the satisfaction of having a complete game often outweighs the fact that we didn't really earn all the achievements... in the traditional sense of the word at least.

For instance, let's take a recent game of mine Lords of the Fallen

The TA walkthrough is great and I won't have the complete without using it. There are too many collectibles and secrets I'm just not willing to find myself.

I think this is the case for a LOT of my games.

So how much of my gamerscore is actually 'legit'

What do you think?
