I think that I might have bit off more than I could chew with the Achievement Clean-Up. A week down, three and a bit to go and I've grabbed 21 of the 100 achievements listed (with a further 22 popping along the way). I have to say that I was really surprised with Fable III. Why did this game cop so much flack? Did it suffer from No Man Sky syndrome? I'm still unsure why I stopped playing it all those years as I was right in the middle of a nice story arc. When I've got some time, I think that I might revisit all three and play them in order.
It has been almost two years since I published my "First Impressions" article about Destiny and now is probably the best time for me to expand upon what I said back then. With news of an imminent service split in Destiny hitting me from out of nowhere (apparently it's been known for months), I was pushed back into the game in an attempt to finish off my characters before August 16.
It's been a while since I set foot on Banoi. I remember the first time that I ventured out of the hotel, well, chased out of the hotel. That was a while ago, this is today and a lot has changed since then. I've learnt quite a bit about squaring off with the living impaired, but these are 5 tips that I think all Banoi survivors should remember.
Like last fortnight, here is the round-up of FN2B. Borderlands, Borderlands, Borderlands! I think it's safe to say that I won't be touching this series for a while (well if I keep with the backlog targets, I shouldn't be touching them until next year... but then again, if I run dry during a fortnight I could come back to attempt to finish them off... NO! I will not do this). Ok so things went well over the past fortnight, but not without the task sending me a little crazy. There's something about replaying games where you can recite dialogue word for word that should bring up big red warning signs.
A quick round-up of FN1A. I was able to finish Alan Wake and most of the easy situational achievements. After that I decided to attempt the Nightmare walk through and collect some of the missing collectables along the way. I'm only missing one TV show, and a handful of manuscripts, signs and chests so I didn't think it'd be that hard. I was really wrong. Much swearing at the screen was done, mostly due to running out of bullets and having to pass through walls of Taken. I can't wait to play the DLC at some point in the future / next year.
2015 was the year that I decided to attempt a few crazy feats when it came to Achievements and Gaming. I originally set my goal at 75,000 Gamerscore by the end of the year, but later extended it to 100,000 which I obtained with a few days to spare. Additionally I had successfully attempted to breach top 10 in the Fighting Games leaderboard for Australia. I might attempt to go further with the global one next year when a few more Fighting games come out.
