    Started playing again last few weeks from the last update, haven't done as much as I'd like.

    Fallout 4: Put a save at the point everything starts branching off and finished the game, then went back and did it for the various factions. Mentioned in the thread but whilst I enjoyed it, it felt incredibly linear. Didn't bother getting the season pass, will wait for the edition with it all packed in and either play a whole new game or finished the DLC off. Got the 1k anyway.

    Rocket League: Picked this up and had a blast. Got the 1k pretty quick and a tonne of unlocks. Lot of fun as anyone who has played it already knows. Best with friends, playing with randoms can be awful.

    Bridge Constructor: Bought this on sale awhile ago and fired it up. Physics based puzzle game where you build a bridge with limited resources that has to support various vehicles crossing it, each harder. I've really enjoyed it although it has a large difficulty jump in the last area and building for the tanker, which is the hardest vehicle. You'll work out efficient designs which carry through a lot of levels but for the tankers I had to look up designs after awhile. You'll spend time meticulously crafting what you think is a solid structure only to hit simulation and watch as it collapses instantly in front of you. Must be what it feels like to post as TTG.

    Just Cause 3: Been hanging out to play this since release and it hasn't disappointed. Explosions are probably the prettiest I've seen in a game before. Missions have felt pretty fresh so far and even though you do a lot of the same things over and over liberating parts of the map, it doesn't feel samey given the various ways you can tackle blowing things up. Only real gripe so far is the challenges as, for a few, you cannot fully complete them without upgrades you get from doing more challenges. Estimate about 70% though the game.

    Haven't played as much as I'd like. Week started off good with some Monopoly action but that's mostly been it. This week:

    Monopoly Plus: This is on the XBox 360. I had 5 achievements left in this so I went and got all of them to 1k the game.

    Monopoly Streets: I had about 14 achievements in this so I got 12 more to get me to 26/40. A bunch of online achievements left mainly so I'll hopefully play that with Brando this week.

    Madden 15: At 19 or 38 achievements. A few more I can get in this.

    Hitman: Started this got 7 of 24 achievements. This'll hurt up my percentage a bit obviously.

    I have a Daily To Do List - something I wrote about before. Every day I am trying my best to do this:

    Frozen Free Fall: Play until I fail.
    Roblox: Log in.
    Beach Buggy Racing: Daily challenge & attempt a level.
    Forza 5: At least 1 race.
    Rorys PGA Tour: One tournament.

    Quite fun as it breaks things up for me. Sometimes I get hooked on a game and keep playing.

    July 1st Goals:

    61% Percentage.
    100 Completed Games.
    10,000 Achievements.
    "To Wrap Up" list down to 100 games

    Last Week Stats:

    Percentage: 59.19%
    Completed Games: 87
    Achievements: 9,356
    Gamerscore: 213,453
    To Wrap Up List: 155

    Current Stats:

    Percentage: 59.32%
    Completed Games: 88
    Achievements: 9,390
    Gamerscore: 214,188
    To Wrap Up List: 155

    March break this week and then next week I'll be working a bunch to make up for the week I'm going to be in Texas so probs not too much over next little while.

    I'll be impressed if you can wrap up 55 games in three and a bit months.

    They're still fully fledged games though, and you have to play till the end for achievements right?

    Doing pretty good with not buying any new games. Mad Max was I believe $30 last week in the sales and I managed to hold off. Hopefully will stay away from spring sales. Haven't given them a thorough look yet.

    Most of my play time this week was in Hitman.

    Monopoly Streets: Thanks to Brando for the online achievements here, and I got the remaining 14 achievements to make this 1ked.

    Hitman: Got 7 more achievements, now at 14/24 on this.

    EA Sports PGA: 1 achievement as I created a custom gameplay style.

    Last Week Stats:

    Percentage: 59.32%
    Completed Games: 88
    Achievements: 9,390
    Gamerscore: 214,188
    To Wrap Up List: 155

    Current Stats:

    Percentage: 59.46%
    Completed Games: 89
    Achievements: 9,412
    Gamerscore: 214,743
    To Wrap Up List: 154

    I'm off to Texas next week for Mania so not sure how much gaming I'll get done. Think I might just try and focus on getting all the Hitman achievements.

    Yeah there's a bunch of things like that - Terry Funk BBQ, hang out and drink with Ric Flair etc. We're just going to play that pretty much by ear. Plans are generally set.

    In the Spring Sale I bought Zombie Army Trilogy and Just Dance 2016. I decided to wait until after Texas to start Zombie Army Trilogy. For some reason I am incredibly hyped to play that game. Not sure why as it's nothing amazing.

    Anyway with that on the sidelines I decided just to focus on wrapping games up and then some Kinect action:

    Goat Simulator: Finally got the Flappy Goat achievement. Last one I needed. Got me to 1000 gamerscore.

    Jackbox Party Pack: I decided to keep the completed games rush going and played this getting the remaining 12 achievements for 1,000 gamerscore.

    Dance Central Spotlight: While debating whether to buy Just Dance 2016 for me and the family, I decided to load up this game again as I'd got a few achievements in it before. Ended up getting inexplicably hooked on it and have been playing it every day since. Got 11 achievements in it to put me at 17.

    Just Dance 2016: Started this which will obviously hurt the percentage a bit most likely but that's okay. Man this game is fun. We ended up unlocking 19 of 36 achievements including one for DESTROYING nateeasy on a song.

    Rocket League: Picked up a few misc achievements in this to put me at 40/44.

    Screamride: Got 3 misc achievements in this.

    July 1st Goals:

    61% Percentage.
    100 Completed Games.
    10,000 Achievements.
    "To Wrap Up" list down to 100 games

    Last Week Stats:

    Percentage: 59.46%
    Completed Games: 89
    Achievements: 9,412
    Gamerscore: 214,743
    To Wrap Up List: 154

    Current Stats:

    Percentage: 59.77%
    Completed Games: 91
    Achievements: 9,493
    Gamerscore: 217,178
    To Wrap Up List: 161 (Had missed a couple)

    So a solid week. Fairly confident that I can achieve all 4 of my goals for July 1st.

    I think they release the date for the next level next week. Tipping it's closer to the end of April anyway.

    Since last update:

    Just Cause 3: Finished this off for the 1k. Great game, I really enjoyed it

    Bridge Constructor: Finished off the second island for the 1k. Had to look up most of the solutions for the tanker trunk bridges as they are crazy hard, as on the second island all the bridges are sloped. Plus a few you have to make jumps. Worth picking up full price, but definitely on sale.

    Hitman: Finished this for whatever it's worth. 500g I think? Best of Blood Money and Absolution. There's so much detail I was picking up new things after playing it through like 10 times. Think the prompts work really well too as you can turn them off, but if you need your hand held they're there Boner. Not a fan of the episodic structure though, but that's mostly because I want to play more of it.

    Not sure what's next. Maybe Metro Redux. Want to get Rise of the Tomb Raider too. Quantum Break is out next week as well I think, could be worth checking out.

    The only thing he's ever remembered about me was the epilogue of RDR. It's been a weird thing for him for what 6 years?
