    Well unfortunately I never managed to get to 100 games completed - which was one of my main goals in 2015. Honestly I could have did that if not for Fallout 4 and a bit of a push. There are enough "easy" games on my list that I could have got 100% in.

    For 2016 my goal is very simple: to play more XBox. One of my new years resolutions is to play at least 1 hour of XBox every day. I've been able to accomplish that every day so far.

    The last update was the day before Fallout 4 cames out. Here's all my updates since then:

    Quiplash: I had 2 achievements in this, and this week I got the rest. 1k.

    Back to the Future: Went through the 1st episode of this and got all the achievements. 12/59 achievements in it.

    Lego Batman 3: Started this with Mason on the XBone. Annoyingly we beat 4 levels but I didn't get the achievement for level 3. Not sure wtf is up with that will have to replay that level andf hopefully will get it.

    Trivial Pursuit Live: I needed a few more achievements in this like win 25 gameshows and a few misc ones. Did that. 1k.

    Fallout 4: Played for 118 hrs apparently lol, 28/50 achievements. I'm kind of at the point now where I just want to focus on the main story so hopefully not too much longer.

    Minecraft Story Mode: Mason has been playing this on the XBox 360. Oddly enough he has beaten Episode 3 & 4 and got all the achievements but they aren't showing up on XBox.com or TA. They show up on the XBox though so not sure what I have to do there - I think delete the profile and download it again?

    There's also a few other misc ones like Lego Dimensions, Joyride Turbo etc but that's all the kids and nothing notable for me.

    Gamerscore: 207,798
    True Achievement Score: 32,968
    Completed Games: 85.
    Percentage: 58.80%.

    I figure I'll set some half year goals. So:

    July 1st Goals: 100 completed games, 61% ratio.

    Since last update:

    Peggle 2: Bought this on sale awhile ago. Finished off the main game for the 1k and the 2 DLC for whatever they are worth. Enjoyed it, it's Peggle. Not much else you can say.

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War: Had already played this on 360 but was a GWG title so finished again. Great game and worth the 2nd playthrough.

    Tomb Raider: Got the last couple of misc multiplayer achievements on this for the 360 for the 1k.

    White Night: Another game picked up on sale. Really liked it, great puzzle game with interesting mechanics using light/dark. Few frustrating bits where it's just basically luck to run through a room without dying. Story is a little convoluted too.

    Pneuma: Breath of Life: Another GWG title. Good puzzle game, but nothing too taxing. Not complaining when it's free, but I wouldn't be too impressed if I'd paid money for it.

    Tales from the Borderlands: Finished the first ep of this. Enjoyed, but not rushing to get through the others. Will get there at some point.

    Call of Duty:Black Ops III: Got a few single player and multiplayer achievements. Got it for multiplayer, but will get through the single player champaign at some point. Don't think I'll be able to 1k it.

    Fallout 4: Big one that's eaten up the most time. I'd estimate I'm about 75% through.

    Haven't actually been playing for a couple of months. Probably be another 6-7 weeks before I can put some time into games again. Have Just Cause 3 waiting too so I'll probably rush Fallout 4 when I get the chance so I can get onto it. Want to get Rise of the Tomb Raider too as it got great reviews. Picked up a few games in sales recently too, Bridge Constructor is one I'd actually like to get playing soon as it looks fun.

    They also finally released an iview app (public broadcaster) for the Bone, so really no reason to turn on the 360 now. I'll probably get to some old games as they go over to backwards compatibility.

    Scots is that 118 hours your actual save or what it says on the game hub? The game hub is what TA uses too I think, and it's always out by like a third.

    According to steam I'm on 79 hours now. Still finding new shit all the time but yeah the missions are a little tiresome as they are too easy.

    Did have a settlement threaten to dump me last night. That was new.

    I'm on about 90 hours and thought that was pretty bad.

    Have you done the USS Constitution quest? It sticks out a bit as it plays like the quests did in other games. It's like it was the first one they did before they decided to can that style and make all the missions linear.

    Just give me all the bacon and eggs you have. Wait, wait. I worry that what you just heard was "Give me a lot of bacon and eggs." What I said was, "Give me all the bacon and eggs you have." Do you understand?

    What it says on the hub. I'll load it up this weekend and see.

    When my daughter was playing she found an area where people would interview you before you could be allowed in. I haven't found that area again Where is it?

    TA has a leaderboard for 2015 stats. Surprised I gained 25k, didn't think I played that much but it all adds up I guess. They don't differentiate between arcade game any more either, so half of that is probably the smaller store games.

    I've changed the title of this thread to the "Road to 10k" to reflect my new challenge.

    So I 1ked Fallout 4. Not sure how best to measure my time in it - my last save listed 4 days and 5 hours but I'd also reloaded older saves and shit to do the alternate endings. Not sure if that affects anything.

    So I was all set to update this thread, then move onto the next games as per normal with my only real goal being to play more XBox. Then I saw it:

    DealerDan has unlocked 9,247 achievements.

    Or as I see it:

    DealerDan has 753 achievements to unlock to hit 10,000 achievements.

    So there's my goal.

    There are 352 days left in the year. So I need about 2.13 achievements every day.

    My other current stats:

    Gamerscore: 210,118
    True Achievement Score: 316,975
    Completed Games: 87.
    Percentage: 58.77%

    So my percentage has went down .03% since I started this year lol. I think it was due to starting two new Lego games on the XBone with the kids.

    Anyway - I had July 1st goals so I've decided to up it:

    July 1st Goals:

    61% Percentage.
    100 Completed Games.
    10,000 Achievements.

    After Fallout 4 I'm really starting to feel like playing XBox again so might as well set some lofty goals for myself. 10,000 achievements by then is just over 5 achievements a day.
