Permalink2019: Week 38 - Stop Making Crap Decisions Gearbox!
Scoring Period: September 16-22, 2019
Ending Gamerscore: 756,420

Games Completed: 3

Had a great week of gaming. Completely got sucked back into Final Fantasy VIII. I am so glad this got remastered. It really is one of my favorite Final Fantasy games from the past. I just love it.

I also managed to finish off a couple of games last week. Completed Attack of the Toy Tanks. One of the more annoying Ratalaika games for me. Also knocked out Paradox Soul and Where the Bees Make Honey. Paradox Soul was super easy thanks to Maka's guide. Where the Bees Make Honey was also super easy, but annoying because of the second play through required. I tried quitting out and I was able to make a second choice but it never popped the alternate ending achievement for me. So I had to do another quick play through.

I also briefly started up Borderlands 3. I'm definitely going to play it, but I was really put off by the change in voice actor for Clap Trap. Also annoyed that Rhys isn't voice by Troy Baker. Gearbox seems to be making some really crap decisions. Pitchford needs to get the boot.

That's it for now!

Pretty mild week for me. Spent some time building myself a new gaming PC. Thanks PC Building Simulator laugh You showed me just how easy it really is!

Managed to finish off 2 games as well. Glass Masquerade was pretty chill. Easy puzzle game. Nice one for keeping the streak going on the days that I was busy.

Also started and finished off Gravity Duck last week. Another easy Ratalaika game.

Sort of booted up Gears 5 just to play it and get some free stuff. I'm busy playing too many other things right now to get into this one just yet. It definitely looks pretty!

That's it for now!

Well summer is over cry September has greeted us in Ottawa with some cool weather. My kids are finally back to school, but I just haven't been super in the mood to game for a bit. Just been busy with stuff and my youngest daughter started competitive ringette tryouts as soon as school started. It's all over now, so I'm thinking I'll be in the mood to game soon.

Really didn't play anything that excited me over the past few weeks. I was getting into AC Odyssey, but with having the kids home I just couldn't continue playing it. I'll have to get back into that this month.

I'm also trying to finish off Lego: Dimensions. Made good progress on the 360 version. Just have some DLCs to finish off on that version and then I have to do the One version.

Gears POP! is kind of fun to have on iOS. Quite the grindy game though and definitely a pay to win.

I actually had a lot of fun playing PC Building Simulator. Super nerdy simulator but I was definitely hooked.

Hopefully some of these new fall games spark my interest in gaming again wink I did have a nice break though!

That's it for now!

Finished off our vacation week at the cottage by playing a bunch of PC games. My kids love watching movies and shows till late in the night there, so it was nice to just chill out and work on some stuff on the surface tablet. Multi-tasking for the win!

Made a good dent in Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition (Win 10). Pretty enjoyable game. Wish they had given it controller options though, especially seeing as this is on console with controller support.

I also finally got in a full play through of Dragon's Lair (Win 8). Might actually have to finish this one off soon. Helped me get my stackable achievement for the GTASC team bonus this past week.

Finally managed to get in some gaming time with my youngest daughter and played some Starlink. Pretty fun game. She keeps getting pissed off that I yank her along because of the games tethering system. I have a hard time seeing the split screen on the tv so sometimes I'm not sure where she is and when you move to far from your partner it auto teleports them to you. Kind of lame.

Started and finished PixARK. It's been on my list of short games to buy. It was just so expensive though I was waiting on a massive sale before I bought it. Love this achievement website and the great tricks people figure out on here. Never knew that there was a trial for it and you could get all of the achievements easily in 20-30 minutes. So I'm super happy I got to finish off that game and didn't have to shell out $55 Canadian for it clap

Other than that I finally dived into Assassin's Creed Odyssey some. Beautiful looking game. Stayed up way too late last night playing it ...

That's it for now!

Had 2 weeks of pretty decent gaming despite being really busy. Finished off a bunch of Ratalaika games for some easy points and to keep the streak going.

Completed Gang Beasts which was quite annoying. Which is one of those "short" games which is pretty short but insanely annoying. It's like Human Fall Flat though which is another game that I find annoying.

Finished off Riverbond which was very easy and mindless. I highly recommend playing the game in reverse so game gets easier as you go laugh

Also finished off Metropolis: Lux Obscura. Another easy game. Game is like Gems of War with boobs.

Up at our cottage this week for vacation so playing some easy PC stuff and some games when the weather's not hot. Actually hoping to play some Starlink with my younger daughter smile

That's it for now!
