The Fractured But Whole: Who paid off the Classifications board of Australia?

This game was shattered within a few days of playing it. I couldn't stop playing it, even through the awkward scenes where you have to find out where Classi is (oh you'll know the scene when it happens, I don't want to spoil it). During that scene I wondered how it got through the classifications board when entire scenes from the previous game were removed, don't get me wrong those scenes were over the top and fairly vile, but the subject matter of this one was a little more offensive than the previous ones. To add to my confusion, why is it ok for a child to inject themselves but it's not ok to use syringes in other games? Has something happened to the classifications guidelines that I'm unaware of?


Extra Life 2017: The Battle Plan

For Extra Life this year, I'll be focusing on moving up the Fighting games (Oceanic) leaderboard on TrueAchievements. These boards recalculate at 7AM GMT each morning so I'll try to record my placement increases before the 2nd session each night.


UHH3: Round 1

Ultimate Head to Head always likes to throw me curve balls when it comes to the achievements that it picks for the matchup, but I wasn't expecting to go up against someone like OzBundyBoy first round. For once the achievement list wasn't as bad as I had previously seen from this event, but it wasn't lacking those few achievements that seem to haunt me every event... You have completed Disc X. from Lost Odyssey and anything really from Eternal Sonata. From what OBB told me later on, procrastination and sickness prevented him from competing so I welcome the challenge again some day.


Fallout 3: Mobile Bobbleheads adjustments

There was only one quest related mission that I needed to finish in the base game, but it would require collecting 30 bottles. I decided to head off and start collecting the Bobbleheads that I had missed. Luckily there were only two potentially missable ones that I hadn't screwed up storyline wise so I grabbed them first. I continued to wander the wasteland for another hour or so locating another 6 before I had grabbed half of the collection. Along the way I was able to net a few Quantum Cola bottles, so I should only need to collect another 10 more. Fawkes and I were also able to reduce the kills needed for the 300 humans killed achievement by about 30 through random encounters while Bobblehead hunting.


Fallout 3: Classical Superhero Oasis

After a lengthy stint away from the wasteland I decided to head back in and clean up the remaining achievements while I waited for the new Mass Effect game to be released. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I only had four quest based achievements lend in the base game (none of which could be missed due to the outcome of other quests).
