PermalinkUHH4 - Period 5 (Knockout 256) - angelsk vs Old Zengunner (Ready to R-UHH-mble!)
Link: UHH 4 match up: angelsk vs Old Zengunner
Result: 19-12 (win!)
Rank: 13th Top Gamer (93 achievements)
Playlist: UHH4 Playlist
Time taken: Approx 45 hours

Opponent: In Taiwan. Plays marked as offline, so really hard to see progress :)

Well the weeks delay helped as I was exhausted last week after I got back from a weekend away. It's going to skew it a bit in week 3 of knockouts - but arrogant of me to assume I'll get that far ;)

This week's list I have the advantage in progress, but only really because I've been playing these games throughout the competition. Otherwise it would be a bean dive list, like before. Taking advantage of that progress advantage though, sorry Zengunner!

// SATURDAY

Jumped straight in with both feet - had a good long stream :)

The StationSecret AchievementangelskThe Secret Achievement achievement in The Station worth 77 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

I got a little sidetracked with this one, trying to fix a robot, but in the end it was really simple to find this one.

PinstripeNice GuyangelskThe Nice Guy achievement in Pinstripe worth 102 pointsJust be nice, OK?

I did not expect to be able to finish the game (which is what the achievement was for), because of the stupid door lock puzzle - but I figured I may as well try. I managed it, but it took a while - and then finished the game :) Luckily I'd made all the nice guy choices, so this was simple.

Serial CleanerWell OrientedangelskThe Well Oriented achievement in Serial Cleaner worth 43 pointsUse Cleaner Sense for a total of at least 10 minutes

This was just holding down cn_LT for 10 minutes. I discovered all my rubber bands were shit ;)

LIMBOAltitude is AttitudeangelskThe Altitude is Attitude achievement in LIMBO worth 78 pointsExploration off the ground

Thankfully this wasn't the complete the game without dying; so it was simply loading up a checkpoint and grabbing/ smashing the egg.

Beholder Complete EditionI Choose ViolenceangelskThe I Choose Violence achievement in Beholder Complete Edition worth 27 pointsDishouse Klaus Shimmer in a hard way

Thankfully my prep time in the previous UHH came into itself; this task was already activated and I just needed to find contraband to trigger the achievement. I got him arrested with an apple!!!! :D

Bard's GoldA book worth readingangelskThe A book worth reading achievement in Bard's Gold worth 14 pointsFind a skill book

I was concerned that I sucked badly at this game that I wouldn't be able get this; but I read how to make the boss appear so I could get the chest I needed to spawn for this.

Assassin's Creed The Ezio CollectionACII | The ProphetangelskThe ACII | The Prophet achievement in Assassin's Creed The Ezio Collection worth 40 pointsComplete DNA Sequence 11.

I had a good chunk of the game done already, so it was good to just be able to continue with the story. Ezio did not like leaping, more like jumping to his death, but despite that I managed to get the right sequence finished.

Mages of MystraliaLazy WizardangelskThe Lazy Wizard achievement in Mages of Mystralia worth 22 pointsUse a Teleportation Anchor 5 times in one adventure

This one was simple as I'd already unlocked the teleporter when I played the game previously. So therefore all I needed to do was hop in a few more times.

Then I jumped on Overcooked 2 to help Jesse get his 3 stars on all the hidden levels - which was a great way to end the stream; with hilarity and a food fight!


8-4

// SUNDAY

Felt like this was a really slow day, but I got a lot done. Lots of stories.

Watch_Dogs 2Knight RiddenangelskThe Knight Ridden achievement in Watch_Dogs 2 worth 46 pointsFinish Operation: Cyber Driver

This was the next story mission, I'd unlocked everything I needed, just not started. It took a few goes to figure out how to escape in the car; but not too long to get the whole mission done.

ReCoreEnd of the BeginningangelskThe End of the Beginning achievement in ReCore worth 31 pointsComplete the Granite Steps

Still not really gotten into this poor game. Got a bit further with Joule and finally finished the first mission!

Alan WakeThe Six-Gun ScribeangelskThe The Six-Gun Scribe achievement in Alan Wake worth 24 pointsDefeat 100 Taken with the revolver.

Had a bit of a panic because my save game on the cloud was from my bean dive years ago - luckily I just needed to find enemies to shoot, only had like 16 left for this one. Then I went back to my 360 and rescued my actual save game for Chapter 3!

Dishonored: Death of the OutsiderTwin-bladed KnifeangelskThe Twin-bladed Knife achievement in Dishonored: Death of the Outsider worth 31 pointsObtain an ancient weapon

I had thought this would be a lot quicker to do, as I'd gotten the keys in my last foray into the game. However the vault was at the end of the next mission and it took me several hours to get through this!

BioShock InfiniteSecret AchievementangelskThe Secret Achievement achievement in BioShock Infinite worth 33 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

I'm getting lucky with Bioshock Infinite progression in this competition. This was only 2 areas on from where I left it, so took around an hour to get through - making sure I didn't miss the collectibles.

Dishonored 2RogueangelskThe Rogue achievement in Dishonored 2 worth 14 pointsEliminate 20 unaware enemies

I had to find a good place for this; but then it was just a case of rinse and repeat. I don't like killing people in this game :(

Final Fantasy XVPhoto RookieangelskThe Photo Rookie achievement in Final Fantasy XV worth 11 pointsImproved photography level for the first time.

I am looking forward to getting back into this game, though I'm a little annoyed at the Cindy character. This was fairly simple to level up the photography skill - just made sure I camped, as that's when the photos are reviewed. My opponent got this within an hour, so I figured it wouldn't be too bad to do.

Deus Ex: Mankind DividedAnd Embrace What You've BecomeangelskThe And Embrace What You've Become achievement in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided worth 13 pointsInstall at least one experimental augmentation.

I got lucky again, as this is pretty much where I ended up with my Deus Ex playthrough from last week (in the hope of getting further in the story). Got into the bookcase and found the doctor dude; then I could unlock and upgrade my augs finally :D

A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XVBedtime BlunderangelskThe Bedtime Blunder achievement in A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV worth 68 pointsGet the alternate story ending.

Gawd, this game gives me RSI! I did not expect to be able to do this, lots of rinse and repeat. Dying, getting to checkpoints and remembering the controls. Managed to get to the boss battle and after a couple of attempts got the "alternative" ending.

17-7

// MONDAY

Played a goodly chunk of Bioshock.

17-9

// TUESDAY

BioShockLittle Sister SaviorangelskThe Little Sister Savior achievement in BioShock worth 153 pointsComplete the game without harvesting any Little Sisters.

Played some Bioshock in the morning. Got a stinking cold, so worked from home. Finished up after work and listened to the final scenes whilst cooking dinner :)

Then I streamed a bunch of Rise of the Tomb Raider. Had some technical difficulties with my controller oddly. But was a good stream.


18-10

// WEDNESDAY

Rise of the Tomb RaiderSecret AchievementangelskThe Secret Achievement achievement in Rise of the Tomb Raider worth 18 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

Took another 90 minutes to get this one; more technical difficulties. Boo hiss. But it doesn't really spoil the game!

Then played a bit of Shiness; got annoyed when the game just hung at the end; and decided to take Thursday off and go to the cinema :)


19-10

// THURSDAY

I saw "The House with a Clock in its Walls" and "Crazy Rich Asians" at the cinema. A thoroughly enjoyable evening :)

// FRIDAY

Played some Shiness and made some progress; but decided on sleep instead of pushing ahead. Fairly certain I'm safe on 19 :) When it comes up again, I'll be ready.

Neomaster This is really cool to read about, perfect for when I'm waiting for the next round to start.

Old Zengunner This definitely does make for nice reading. :)

No foul in using whatever advantages can be had -- I would do the same. After the first day it was pretty much a clear-cut loss, so I figured I should get at least 10 achievements from the list while I'm here.

I keep marking myself as online, but it doesn't seem to take for some reason. I will try again as it's been awhile since I tried. My apologies -- it wasn't intentional, though maybe I'll keep it as a strategy for the next UHH....heheheh.

The only game I didn't enjoy from the ones I played this time round was Watch Dogs 2. This dumpster fire of a game froze on me 7 times...it doesn't help that I much preferred the first one over this anyways, and now it's got yet another black mark against it.

Anyways, it was fun! Best of luck against PirateSpirit!
