My Journey into Game Pass - Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown
The pace in the Journey has certainly slowed down as of late, with much of my time spent catching up on some Games with Gold as well as a number of this year's previews through EA Access. Can't help it, I'm a sports gamer, too. I have also spent a bit of time lately doing a bit of bottom-feeding. That's a term I use to refer to feasting on low-ratio Achievements found through the "Easy Achievements" link on TA. It's a good way to get a big boost to Gamerscore with minimal effort. Of course, this has hindered my ability to win my second UHH round, after winning the first by an easy 4-0 margin.

This week, however, I did jump back into Game Pass and gave Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown a spin. It was a pretty short one, but quite lucrative racking up 8 of the 12 Achievements in about a 20 minute span. These are ridiculously easy, requiring such epic feats as playing a training stage and starting Score Attack mode. Even the Arcade mode Achievements can be unlocked on the easiest difficulty, and you don't even have to beat the final boss, just reach him. My only four remaining Achievements require a boosting partner with whom to play 10 ranked matches (the online community has completely dried up) and to complete a handful more License Challenges.

The License Challenges are a bit of a pain. They give you specific tasks to carry out, but the requirements aren't always very clear. The test I'm currently undertaking requires me to win a match while executing an Offensive Move. I couldn't find anything in the help section of the game explaining particularly what that means, and after following the guide here on TA it still doesn't seem to reliably work out for me. Maybe it's my lack of proper skill in the genre, or just an overall lack of patience that is providing the challenge here.

I expect that there may be only one more installment of this series for the next few weeks while my kitchen undergoes a complete renovation, requiring the family to move to Casa del Inlaws for the better part of October. I don't think the Xbox will be making the trek with us, since the TV in their basement is about 100 years old. But I will try to get one more post in this week before the hiatus begins, then look for a return early in November. Thanks as always for reading.
