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!

Xpovos I didn't know Turtle Quest was made by kids. Huh.

SnipedByAGir1 Yep you can check out their website here Xpovos:

Xpovos I did earlier, as I was researching the game. If kids made it, I think the odds of the achievement ever getting fixed are really slim. As is, I'm not sure. I hadn't watched any of the videos, but I have now. What I have seen points to at least primarily adult-development. English is clearly not the first language (Italian) and that's coming through in some of the kid commentaries. They want to make kid-friendly games, but it's not necessarily true that they are kids making these games.

About us
We are all something else!
Not many kids are "professionals".

There is some indication that the developers kids were a part of the development process, maybe spinning some of the ideas and helping in the development process, probably mostly in story and voice acting, etc., but the bugs appear to be adult-created. At least that's my current theory.

SnipedByAGir1 Well if that's the case that makes this game even worse. I'm not too concerned about unobtainables. I know a lot of people are though. I won't be surprised if it's never fixed though. I think they are planning on releasing more chapters for this game though, so maybe it will end up getting fixed with that.

SnipedByAGir1 Also you're right. I haven't been able to stomach watching the youtube video about the making of yet, but this is from their website:

The revolt!

“We believe the children are our are future, teach them well and let them lead the way….”

Well, we all know that song!

We also believe that kids deserve to be taught courage and self esteem, love and passion for life.
This is what we try to accomplish by making kid friendly games.

Also kids, just wanna have fun!

So if they made this to make kid friendly games then ... EWW!

Xpovos Well, it looks like the unobtainable got fixed!

Now the concern is future (paid) episodes being categorized as DLC.
