What an absolutely insane week of gaming. I can't believe we managed to pull off what we did this week. I remember when I used to think scoring 1-2K a week was a lot of gaming. Now it's regularly 5K+. I really don't have any free time right now. Between managing work, my kids ringette and now I'm playing it too, if I have a free minute I'm gaming. My husband's already given in. He knows I'm going to be an absolute nutbar until the end of this year and then I can be semi-normal next year laugh.

When Steve said he had that master set ready in NHL at the beginning of the week we knew we had a bit of an ace in the hole. It would have been nice to save, but seeing as it's a timed achievement and he met the requirements it was the perfect time to play that card. Really glad it worked. Team UHH was pushing us right to the last minute. It was pretty intense. I'm not kidding I was biting my nails as the period rolled over. So good game Team UHH. That was pretty exciting. Too bad we all scored so much and the stupid cutoff is so low right now.

This week I seriously played a lot of crap. I was happy to finally figure out how to read Sasha's guide for Echoes of the Fey. Easy completion once I got it. Chaos; Child was great to run while I was working at my desk. No idea what was going on in it though. But who cares right? Lococycle is ok. But I blow at driving games so ... yeah.

Went back to Cobalt because of the over inflated ratios. Tried out Teslagrad. It's alright but a little frustrating at parts. Dying over and over is awesome. I had a lot of fun playing Ultratron. Stick shooter, but was a bit addictive. Planet of the Eyes was a super quick platformer. I actually didn't mind that one. Not frustrating which is nice.

Dan got an achievement in Infinite Minigold for having his hole rated 50 times or something so I booted that up last minute to see if it would pop for me too. And it did clap.

Started up the Complete Collection of King's Quest on the 360. Finally got the disk in the mail. Thought I'd be able to skip the dialogue though, but I can't, so that sucks.

DreamBreak was an absolute stinker. Diana told me the taxi section sucked and it really did. I hated Another World and I hate this one too. Glad it's done and deleted.

Badland is pretty, but I don't know why the hell I started it ...

Well I gotta get back to scoring like a crazy person.

That's it for now!

Another crazy week of gaming. Pretty much the norm now. Our team nabbed 2 good badges again this week and I pulled off first on solo side as well. Played a lot of stuff last week to make that happen.

Tried out 3 new ACA games which I just can't stomach. Horrible and I suck at them. Played 2 more Artifex Mundi games. I actually like those ones.

Started up Chroma Gun. Nice quick game with the guides on the site here. Reminds me of Portal.

Had fun boosting Titanfall (360) with Balarush one afternoon. We actually found ourselves with a bunch of free time so I fit this in as well as got back to some Earthlock. I really like that game. Would like to do a bit of it each week actually.

Also did a playthrough of Oxenfree. Pretty trippy game but I really enjoyed it. Back to scoring for me laugh

Permalink2017: Week 36 - Huge Gaming Week
Scoring Period: September 4 -10, 2017
Ending Gamerscore: 457,331
Gamerscore Increase: 7,015
Games Completed: 1

Well huge GTASC gaming week for my team and I. I'm used to not sleeping anymore and might apply to be a Walking Dead extra. They wouldn't need to use makeup on me right now laugh. It's not so much the gaming that has me looking like such a mess (well a little thanks to Destiny 2), but work and my girls' Ringette just started back up. I'm also head coaching my youngest daughters team this year so I have a crap ton on my plate right now. That being said, having to do all this stuff and scoring 7K GamerScore this week is pretty awesome. The achievaholics and overachiever badges are icing on the cake. It's rare lately that our whole team is around to actually score during a period, but when we are and we gel it's awesome!

I actually played some good stuff this week. Played some rotten stuff too, but I'll start with the good.

A Walk in the Dark is a nice platformer. Some of the achievements look like a real B**ch and I might not finish them. The levels go pretty quick though. Sort of reminds me of In Between, but less annoying.

Oxenfree is a really good game. And it will be GWG so I recommend picking it up if you haven't already played. Really good story, sorta trippy.

The big one I played this week was Destiny 2. OMG so much fun. Balarush and I burned through the campaign pretty quick. I gotta say this is probably the game where my lack of sleep came from. Having to score but wanting to play Destiny. It was worth it though. I love my hunter. Not super fond of the super on Void class though. In the original Destiny when you used your super on void class it gave you a second to aim your arrow after. This one doesn't and I hope they tweak that. It sort of hard aiming and using super at same time. I've wasted a bunch of void arrows. Game looks amazing though and plays great. Looking forward to getting back to this in December ... roll.

As for crappy games, Turtle's Quest or "Turd's Quest" as I renamed it takes the cake. I realize kids made this game and I'm being uber mean, but I would hope if my daughters decided to make a game and were guided by adults that they would make something way better than this. That or I would disown them warning. Game is super glitchy, looks like ass, the voice acting weirded me out and oh yeah ... it's horrible. I know I'm complaining here about free Gamerscore and feel free to smack me, but I've played a lot of games with free Gamerscore that were no where near as atrocious as this. That being said, if they add more achievements to this crappy game in their new chapters I'll still play it. Otherwise see ya later Turd Quest.

That's it for now!

Scoring Period: August 28 - September 3, 2017
Ending Gamerscore: 450,316
Gamerscore Increase: 5,210
Games Completed: 3

Well earlier this year I set a goal to hit 450,000 GamerScore by the end of the year. I thought for some reason I was pushing it by aiming for that. I've hit my goal about 3 months early though. I feel like I'll probably be hitting half a mil by the end of the year instead thanks to GTASC laugh.

I was bummed that I had to use 2 individual bonuses this week for solo side. We were going for the team bonus to have everyone the same Gamerscore though so my hands were tied. Glad I only had to use 2 to stay alive and really happy we got the bonus. I'm thinking I might have gotten low ratio on solo side too so that will help counteract some bonus usage.

Played through a couple of games last week. Monochroma and Among the Sleep were pretty meh. Super easy though.

I really liked Firewatch. Great walkthrough on the site here. Liked how the story was presented.

Late Shift was my favorite from this week. Acting in this was great. I would love to have more games that I can play that are like this. I was able to get a ton of work done while I streamed this game/movie to my computer. Loved the story too. I'm gonna have to YouTube some endings though as I quit out so that I wouldn't have to replay it 7 or 8 times for the different endings. Super game!

Hopefully next week I can find some more interesting stuff to play. I'm sure they'll be more ACA BS mixed in there, but fingers crossed, something good. Also need to readjust my year end goal to 500k GS wink.

That's it for now!

First off congrats to Team UHH in this week's GTASC. I'm not surprised you guys went for first and achievaholics with AxDEMONxWITHIN scoring like a freaking machine. Would have been really stupid to pass up that opportunity. Seriously kudos to you. I'm sorta glad I had drank too much with the husband Saturday night to play. I thiml it would have been a shame to waste such a nice weekend day playing more Artifex Mundi BS going for the block. I've loved are weekends at the cottage, but I'm really looking forward to kids going back to school and weekends being at home so I can be in it Sunday mornings. Drinking and swimming all day don't make for nice Sunday morning cutoffs laugh.

Well played some crap this week, but I played some really good stuff too smile. I actually thought I played so much Artifex Mundi this week that I bruised my hand, but now I think it was actually me being an idiot in Project Cars. Car games are not my thing, and for some reason I started this stupid game. So I figure I better get started on the community racing achievement. Only thing is I didn't know you only had to do 1 clean lap for each community event. So I kept driving my damn car for I don't know how many laps. I was scared if I quit then would find out I just needed to drive 1 or 2 more laps. Didn't know I just had to do I, get a lap time and then quit cry. And like I said I hate car games so I clenched my damn controller for like a gillion laps and bruised my damn hand. I mean it, half my palm is black and blue. Who said gaming wasn't a sport?

So Project Cars = some of my crap. As for good stuff, I absolutely loved 3 games I played this week. The Bunker was awesome. Didn't know this game played like a movie, but wow, acting was great and story was great too. Also played the Assembly this week. I think the Bunker was better, but Assembly had a very interesting story as well. My favorite game this week though was King's Quest. I just have so much nostalgia surrounding this game. I played the crap out of King's Quest when I was younger. Actually King's Quest and Space Quest were two of my favorite series when I was younger. This King's Quest reboot had all the spirit of the originals in the series. I really loved it. The story was funny and sweet. I can't wait to replay it on the 360 ... maybe twice laugh.

This coming week is my last week with the kids at home while I try to work and game at the same time. Yay for school starting!

That's it for now!
