PermalinkUHH4 - Period 6 (Knockout 128) - angelsk vs PirateSpirit (F-UHH-ll On Battle!)
Link: UHH 4 match up: angelsk vs PirateSpirit
Result: 19-20 (loss)
Rank: 12th Top Gamer (112 achievements)
Playlist: UHH4 Playlist
Time taken: Approx 38 hours (felt like longer!)

Opponent: From Scotland, good to have someone in the same timezone. Very serious contender. Basically feels like being matched up against myself :)

Well this list is going to be a fight. It's not a bad list; but weird to only have 12 distinct games. So we'll see how the week plays out. Mostly similar or matched progress in games, except for a couple. I feel like I have a slight advantage there.

However, it has to be a big push Sat, Sun and Mon; as on Tuesday morning I set out for the epic family time before my brother's wedding. So my opponent will have a time advantage, even though I'll basically game non-stop til Monday night.

PS: I'm totally writing this blog on the train home as I've not really had a great deal of time to sit down with my thoughts since the round started.

// SATURDAY

Dived straight in after sorting my game collection. Opponent pulling no punches, was down 0-4 out of the gate :D I like it! Keeps me on my toes.

The Walking Dead Collection - The Telltale SeriesLook Behind YouangelskThe Look Behind You achievement in The Walking Dead Collection - The Telltale Series worth 24 pointsComplete Chapter 7 of Episode 3 of Season 1

Sadly no advantage here, as I was at the start of this episode and you can just start at any episode in this collection. But as I was sleepy (post-food nap time was skipped) I needed something to ease me in.

Final Fantasy XVLearner's PermitangelskThe Learner's Permit achievement in Final Fantasy XV worth 11 pointsDrove the Regalia.

Final Fantasy XVMy First HuntangelskThe My First Hunt achievement in Final Fantasy XV worth 11 pointsCompleted first hunt.

Not really much to say, these followed on from the previous week. Picked up the car, drove it about 1m, then hopped out and got my hunt.

EarthlockSecret AchievementangelskThe Secret Achievement achievement in Earthlock worth 18 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

This game is my ace in the hole (hopefully) as I'd made so much progress during a previous round, activating PAT was my next achievement, and fairly simple as it goes. I then proceeded to play on and got up to 5/6 barnacles on my beach. The icicle was harder than expected, and although I made good progress, it kept handing me my arse. I did a bit of levelling up, but by then was getting quite tired and decided to call it a night around 1am.


Doesn't feel like I did a lot, based on the score. But made tons of advancing in Earthlock.

4-9 (down)

// SUNDAY

Got some sleep, and decided to dive into LA Noire whilst I had my first (of many) cups of tea. Cookies for breakfast is okay, right? :)

L.A. NoireThe Straight DopeangelskThe The Straight Dope achievement in L.A. Noire worth 16 pointsUse evidence to prove a lie as an LAPD Detective or Investigator.

My opponent had gotten to the end of the traffic cases overnight; but I'm assuming fell asleep during the epically long unskippable cutscenes! I followed a guide as I'd already done these before on the 360 and wanted to be the most efficient. Skipped a couple of non-storyline achievements I didn't need, and let my partner drive everywhere. This took most of the morning, but I got it done.

2064: Read Only MemoriesSecret AchievementangelskThe Secret Achievement achievement in 2064: Read Only Memories worth 19 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

I feel bad I had to skip the dialogue, so I'll be getting back into this one properly as the story is getting more intriguing.

Mages of MystraliaSecret AchievementangelskThe Secret Achievement achievement in Mages of Mystralia worth 22 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

Actually got this one quicker than I expected, once I'd figured out where I was going. It was the next story beat, after an annoying boss, and I got this one just as my friend came online ready to co-stream.

Your ToySecret of lightsangelskThe Secret of lights achievement in Your Toy worth 31 pointsTurn off/on the lights for five times

Your ToyMemory CorridorangelskThe Memory Corridor achievement in Your Toy worth 32 pointsGet in the cave

This game is both scary and annoying in equal measures, but generated a funny VOD if you want a laugh. Took longer than I would have liked, but figured most of it out ourselves.

I really only started this one up to fight the crab to bring me even with my opponent (I think). But as I was streaming I decided to carry on playing and beat the game! (Which was the second achievement I needed).

Voodoo Vince: RemasteredSous ChefangelskThe Sous Chef achievement in Voodoo Vince: Remastered worth 29 pointsCollect all gumbo ingredients for Jimmy.

Voodoo Vince: RemasteredSwamp CaptainangelskThe Swamp Captain achievement in Voodoo Vince: Remastered worth 39 pointsBeat Jimmy's Fanboat Race.

Well luckily I was just before Jimmy. Sadly I had the damn swinging to finish, couldn't remember where I was going. Then had a boss fight. After that however it was "smooth" sailing to get the ingredients; and then the race. Oh god the race. I took about an hour to beat the damn thing!! Shortcuts are the key; and I don't think I could have done it without that last one.


Watch_Dogs 2No Place Like HaumangelskThe No Place Like Haum achievement in Watch_Dogs 2 worth 51 pointsFinish Operation: Haum Sweet Haum

I should have probably gone to bed, but I just wanted to knock out one more. Stayed up til about 2am playing Watch Dogs 2 to finish the next mission. Then, realising that the next one I needed was further into the game, went to bed.

16-14 (up)

// MONDAY

I had to combine Monday with gaming and packing, so this was always going to be a full on day.

Watch_Dogs 2HypnotizeangelskThe Hypnotize achievement in Watch_Dogs 2 worth 57 pointsFinish Operation: W4tched

Started off with a morning of Watch Dogs 2, slogging through the story missions, thankful a lot of them were hacking based as those are the most fun.

MonochromaGet Soul SuckedangelskThe Get Soul Sucked achievement in Monochroma worth 62 pointsLet your spirit free

Spent way too long getting stuck on the bit with the platforms that squash you if you jump too late; but followed a walkthrough and all in all this wasn't bad.

I did load up Alan Wake and managed to get a grand total of 1/24 stars needed. So that's a big nope!

EarthlockHeroic HoarderangelskThe Heroic Hoarder achievement in Earthlock worth 20 pointsReleased all the barnacles to play on Plumpet Beach

I was going to co-stream with Jesse, but as I was just grinding out levels, I decided to just be a voice guest on his stream instead. I levelled up characters, decided on swapping out to my favourite team, levelled up some more. Did some side quests, farmed tons of seeds; and then after a few tries finally managed to nab the stupid icicle. Ran all the way back to the warp point, frantic that I'd get knocked out and have to do it again. That rare achievement sound when I released it on the beach has never sounded so good.

Perfect timing to get a good nights sleep before travel the next day.

19-16 (up)

// THE REST OF THE WEEK

So now it's just a waiting game. I won't touch Alan Wake; but it'll be on my opponent to get the 20 (which is doable) to get the win; so at least I made them work for it.

I shall be watching avidly their progress. Good luck PirateSpirit!!!!!!!!!!!!

Update: And they did it!! A well deserved win :)

The wedding went beautifully and even the weather co-operated. I'm exhausted so I'll be taking it easy this week in JFF.
