April’s Period SummaryApril’s Period Summary

“I even made a point to buy a game I know I will never 100% on the PS4, a console where I had every game I had played on it aimed at 100% completion across the board just to make sure that I will keep the completion streak broken.”
- ScorchPSO, January 2018

Woops?

Turns out completing Monster Hunter World wasn’t as much of an impossible task as I had imagined and I actually had a lot of fun doing it – It’s definitely the top contender right now for Game of the Year for me – After 200+ hours and all trophies completed I still find the urge to go back and do the new events or just play for a few hours.

Once I focused on the completion however it only took around 40 additional hours of “grinding” (Though even this was fun for me) to completely finish – Reading around I realize I was extremely lucky with crown drop rates compared to other people but I’m glad for it, that’s another completion I can add to the list.

I also managed to complete A Way Out, Shadow of Colossus (Fun but frustrating at times), Arkham Asylum (for the fifth or sixth time), Hue, Hitman GO and Lara Croft GO whilst making decent progress on Arkham City (For the fourth time!)

  • So, What’s next?

In terms of gaming, nothing is planned – I will be going to Japan next Friday for four weeks so gaming is, obviously, taking a back seat – I will probably continue playing Sea of Thieves and maybe some Arkham City, but generally I’m done with gaming for most of this month and half of next. I’ll be arriving home again 2 days before E3 begins so May’s statistics will be delayed until then along with some (hopefully if nothing is spoiled) predictions on E3.

I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures of Japan and share when I’m back also.

I’m a little bummed out that Sea of Thieves content drop is planned for when I’m away in Japan, though this is definitely first world problems to the maximum.

“I can’t play the new content because I’m on holiday!”

I actually said this to a friend and the reception was less than warm.

Sea of ThievesLaden With TreasureScorchPSOThe Laden With Treasure achievement in Sea of Thieves worth 66 pointsIf you are of chests aplenty, this achievement unlocks at twenty.

This was a pretty fun achievement to get with my girlfriend and friends – It wasn’t nearly as hard as we thought it would be but we got fairly lucky with the treasure maps and we were only hassled once or twice by other players.

  • March Statistics

March’s Period SummaryMarch’s Period Summary

  • Updates

At the end of February I had written a small list of games I wanted to try and go through by the end of March – Looking at that list now I can see I only managed to finish one of them.

That being said I’m still feeling pretty good about where I am with my backlog and the progress I’m making working through it – I managed to finish 5 games that were on the backlog as well as re-completing 2 that had DLC achievements added.

I finally decided it was time to try and get back into Assassin’s Creed Origins and I’ve gone from disliking it to liking it moderately – It’s definitely not my favourite Assassin’s Creed game but it’s enjoyable for what it is – However the way it plays is really making me want to go back and do another run through of The Witcher 3.

I had to back off finishing the last achievement on Rock Band 4 as I ended up getting really bad Repetitive strain injury in my left arm (a reoccurring problem that I’ve been dealing with for a while) so I had to put it on the backburner – I’ll probably return to Rock Band 4 again in a month or so but right now it’ll have to be shelved.

I’m heading to Japan for 4 weeks in May so April will be the last time I game for a while – with that said I’m going to try and get as much done with my backlog as possible before I leave, this means:

A Way Out
Batman: The Enemy Within
Shadow of the Colossus (PS4)
Hitman GO (PS4)
Assassin’s Creed Origins

I suspect I could easily get these games finished before the month’s end and maybe make some more progress on Left 4 Dead 2 and Final Fantasy XV.

  • Achievement Highlights/Statistics

CupheadKingScorchPSOThe King achievement in Cuphead worth 209 pointsObtain an A-Rank or higher on all bosses in Inkwell Hell

I finally went back and “Completed” (Story-wise) Cuphead with my girlfriend – It felt pretty good to get the game done with her and although it was probably more challenging going through it with somebody else less skilled than me (Hard to type without sounding mean) I’m glad she stuck with it until the end.

I’m undecided if I’ll ever go back and 100% this game completely but right now it’s just not on my radar.
Rock Band 4Rock Band ImmortalScorchPSOThe Rock Band Immortal achievement in Rock Band 4 worth 183 pointsEarn 5 Stars on every disc song in Rock Band 4 on Expert in Quickplay mode.

I’m pretty proud of this, it’s the first guitar related game that I’ve managed to 5 star everything on Expert – I had to use vocals on a few songs but this doesn’t at all diminish the work I put into it.
