PermalinkWeek 2018-19: Life, not as strange as before
Ending score: 405358 Increase of 1395 gamerscore
2 completion this week: Life is Strange: Before the Storm; The Little Acre

This week I played:
Bard's Gold - 145 [280/1000]
Life is Strange: Before the Storm - 700 [1000/1000]
Microsoft Bingo - 50 [960/1000]
Microsoft Bingo - 10 [190/200]
Microsoft Solitaire Collection - 20 [655/1000]
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 - 160 [295/1000]
South Park: The Stick of Truth - 50 [50/1000]
Super Lucky's Tale - 10 [185/1000]
The Little Acre - 100 [1000/1000]
Wheels of Aurelia - 150 [600/1000]

Did a second play through of little acre to pick up the three I missed in the first play. Only took about 30 mins.
Finished the last part of Life is Strange BTS. I hope they do another Life is strange as this one was a good story. The ending left me with an empty feeling knowing what happens to Racheal in the original, as well as the feeling of loss throughout the game, which happens to coincide with the anniversary of the loss of my mother. It kind of hit home in a different way.
on the other end of the spectrum I started Stick of Truth, just for some irreverance...
Finally got somewhere with Bard's Gold and I am starting to get the hang of it, but still a long way to go. Still fun
Been playing a bit of pvz-gw2, mainly as my eldest(14) is playing it and getting my youngest(4) to join her...so dad has to take over and show them how its done.
MS Bingo, hit level 30, just another 14 or so to go to get the last achivement...not sure I want to, but hey its not an achievement without stupid amounts of grinding

XCOM: Enemy Unknown - 10 [85/1100]

Working through Lego Star Wars: Force Awakens, played through the story, now the grind begins
First playthrough of Little Acre, just 3 missed achievements to go back to. This was actually a fun short game
Bard's Gold is more fun than I thought it would be, but I really suck at it. I guess I need to take my time more and learn where the traps are.
Moved on a little more with tower of guns. It's a weird sort of game and I'mnot the best at shooters. Hope to finish it before my game pass runs out
Loving Life Is Strange. In a way I can feel how it felt to be that age (not as a girl though). The music really makes it though

Started a few new games this week and restarted Viking, a game I started 10 years ago. really need to stop buyioon new games and just play through my backlog.
Paladin was actually quite a good game and fun. Actually something I will play through again.
asemblance was...odd. Not 100% sure I know what its about but I did read up about the white shift clues and that was deep.

Oh and I made 400,000 Gamerscore. Yay me!

PermalinkWeek 2018-16: Cleaning away the slime
Ending score: 399875 Increase of 2480 gamerscore
3 completion this week: Hitchhiker, Slime Rancher, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter

This week I played:
Asemblance - 900 [900/1000]
Eekeemoo Splinters of the Dark Shard - 100 [850/1000]
Fallout Shelter - 25 [575/1000]

Oddworld: New and Tasty - 20 [20/1000]
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 - 10 [135/1000]
Rare Replay - 10 [1445/4000]
Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter - 1000 [1000/1000]
Slime Rancher - 30 [1000/1000]
The LEGO NINJAGO Movie Video Game - 40 [200/1000]
Tower of Guns - 55 [55/1000]

Finally got the hang of rush mode on slime rancher and ended up with 90,000 newbucks, enough to cover the 75,000 needed for the final achievement. It's all down to timing and some luck. Doing the missions for gold gingers to feed the gold gordos, which adds extra time. Also getting keys early and mixing crystal with honey slimes early to get a decent income. Then in the desert getting mosaic and tangles for end game plorts.
Setting up teleports to high passage locations is essential, especially as ring island has 3 golden gordos and a teleport saves some time. You need to be getting around 20-26 gold plorts otherwise its a waste and to that end do not sit close to the gordo as when it pops the gold sliomes with run off immediately, so kep you distance and spam food at them.
Sherlock Holmes was good, some mix of mind puzzles and physical ones. Glad it was on game pass as I was going to buy it and my 1 month free card from eurogamer last year cme into its owmn.

PermalinkWeek 2018-15: Three completions this week FACT!
Ending score: 397395 Increase of 1921 gamerscore
3 completion this week: Factotum 90; Late shift; Minecraft:Pocket Edition(Kindle Fire)

This week I played:
Cars 2 - 55 [95/1000]
Eekeemoo Splinters of the Dark Shard - 455 [750/1000]
Factotum 90 - 1000 [1000/1000]
Haunted House - 5 [10/200]
Late shift - 250 [1000/1000]
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens - 60 [230/1150]
Minecraft:Pocket Edition - 20 [1750/1750]
Slime Rancher - 20 [970/1000]
The Darkness II - 10 [45/1000]
The LEGO NINJAGO Movie Video Game - 20 [160/1000]
W.O.R.L.D.S: Win Own Reinvent Live Discover Sim - 26 [100/1048]

Getting better with the 5 day rush on Slime Rancher. It comes down to getting slime keys quick, the right slimes to farm, easy exchange missions for golden gingers and finding the golden gordos. Getting a bonus for collecting 25 of a type of plort is essential as well. Another essential is using the teleports to get from place to place quick as you will find you are short on time a lot.
Factotum was an interesting game, but I didnt have the urge to play to the end after I ground the 1000gs.
Late Shift was a good change of pace, playing a movie rather than a game
Eekeemoo is awful, the fighting isnt great as you just bash X and hope for the best. Unfortunately I missed a shard and need to play again to pick it up near the end of the game
