    Haven't played too much since the last update, although plan to change that now. Started both Fallout Shelter and Watch Dogs 2.

    Also bought a couple of games on sale although I've already forgotten which ones lol.

    Fallout Shelter: Free Bone version of the mobile game. Surprisingly addictive given there's no real point or endgame. Just been grinding away trying to get dwellers trained up so I can start tackling more missions and such. Given the hours everything takes now it's at the point where I just need to log in a couple of times a day for some management. Have a fair stack of Nuka-Cola Quantum too so I don't mind spending one or two in order to speed up quests. I snagged a pet that reduces return time by 75% which comes in handy.

    Watch Dogs 2: Have only scratched the surface of this but enjoying it much more than Watch Dogs one. They took everything that worked from the first one and built on it, although have the main character not be an autistic helps too. Big open world however not that detailed, more than enough for what's here though.

    XBox One Games to Start: 32 (+2)

    Achievements: 7 914 (+27)
    Gamerscore: 184 695 (+500)
    True Achievement Score: 340 910 (+394)
    100% Completed Games: 179
    Percentage: 96.28% (-0.7)

    Hopefully devote some time to Watch Dogs 2 and finish that in a week or so. Feel like I can do everything in Fallout Shelter, however it's going to be a long term thing.

    I'm gonna wait till I beat Mad Max to update. Just got back into that over the last 2 days. I have a whopping 129 gamerscore lol yet I've put in over 22 hours. Only 15/49 achievements. On the last 2 missions in story mode then I'll actually look at chivos and go through them.

    Going to change the way I have been playing games tho. With a lot of games I beat them then I go back to them later for achievements but "later" almost never happens(ie: Sleeping Dogs, Battlefield 4). So going to start wrapping up games soon as I'm done as otherwise they just stay on the backlog.

    Yeah, I'm not really a fan of going back to stuff as you have end up forgetting aspects, updates have changed things or, if they're multiplayer, the community is dead.

    Quick update.

    So I beat Mad Max. I ended up with a whopping 249/1000 gamerscore with 17/49 achievements. A lot of grinding to be done in that but it's a fun game so I don't mind that. Perfect thing to do while watching reality TV and sports, or listening to podcasts.

    My last update was January 15th and not too much has happened since then. I was away on a couple of trips then had a backlog of work to do.

    I then started and got hooked on Fallout Shelter. That's also on my "XBox Games to Wrap Up" list now as it's basically me logging in twice a day to do a quest or wrap up a created item and that's it. Time will take care of that.

    I'm off on a family trip in just over a week for March break unfortunately so I've decided not to start any new games until I'm back.

    XBox Games to Wrap Up: 164.
    New XBox 360 Games: 86
    New XBox One Games: 113
    New XBLA Games: 58
    XBox Kinect Games: 24

    Of course I'm probs gonna blindly buy that Game Pass so that's gonna add to it lol. Oh well I won't specifically include them on the lists I think.

    I'm going to focus on my XBox Games to Wrap Up list prior to my trip. There's probably a few games I can outright remove from it(I don't see a 2nd playthrough of Hitman Absolution in my future) as well as a few which just need a couple of hours to wrap up.

    Current Stats:

    Achievements: 10,159. (+70)
    Gamerscore: 235,153. (1585)
    True Achievement Score: 364,438. (+3268)
    100% Completed Games: 98.
    Percentage: 59.83%. (+0.29%)

    Pretty low score for Mad Max, these days you're usually over 500g just by finishing the game. I can't remember the situation with Absolution, did you need a second playthrough?

    Yeah for Absolution to beat it in Professional difficulty or hard difficulty or whatever. 1 chivo just for that to complete it but not sure I can be bothered. Might just have a "Hey if you ever feel like playing these games again theres chivos you need" list with stuff like Hitman and Alpha Protocol (even tho I'm still aching for a 2nd playthrough of that)

    Could you do that from the get go? I don't remember playing through it twice and didn't think it was particularity hard. From memory there were only a few real levels, the rest were 'make your way through this area without getting spotted'.

    I always like to start a game on easier difficulty. Then if I like it enough I'll do it on the harder one for 2nd playthrough.

    Fallout Shelter: Still plugging away on this. Spent the last couple of weeks upgrading all my questing dwellers to max stats. Now most of them are there, or a day or two away, will start questing and breeding. Probably be a few more weeks before I knock out the rest of the achievements though, but just a time issue.

    Watch Dogs 2: Finished this for the full 1k. Much more enjoyable than the first one, although it's mostly down to the protagonist. Huge difference from the first one which took itself ultra serious. It still does to an extent, but much more enjoyable characters and missions. The best part from the last game, the multiplayer, works here too. Whilst you can search for stuff it's also dynamic with both people coming into your game to attack you or you been placed into theirs and given the option to go after them. My only problem was with the bounty ones. When you get a 3+ wanted level people may come into your game to try and take you down. The police are super aggressive though and you die so quickly that often you don't get the chance to get people or fight invaders before the cops get you.

    Had a lot of fun with it anyway. The open world isn't that deep with only a handful of side activities, although they're all optional anyway. Works for the game as you're not spending too much time in it anyway. Recommended.

    XBox One Games to Start: 31 (-1)

    Achievements: 7 964 (+50)
    Gamerscore: 185 845 (+1 150)
    True Achievement Score: 343 449 (+2 539)
    100% Completed Games: 179
    Percentage: 96.89% (+0.61)

    Not sure what to start next. Even though I have a pile of stuff to start I kinda want to pick up Resident Evil 7 so might be that if I get it in the next day or two.

    Fallout: Shelter: Just one more achievement to go in this, getting 20 legendary dwellers. Currently sitting on 13. I'll keep doing quests for a bit and see if any pop up there, otherwise might start trying to hit the lunchboxes to wrap this up.

    Resident Evil 7: Played this through for the full 1k. I was really impressed with the game, takes things back to survival horror. It oozes atmosphere and is genuinely creepy without resorting to jump scares and the like. It manages to maintain a consent anticipation of encounters without overdoing the encounters themselves. My only gripes would be with the direction of the late game, but can't really say too much about that without spoiling.

    There's a demo out with the very first section of the game with different characters so check it out and see what you think. Multiple endings for that too.

    XBox One Games to Start: 31

    Achievements: 8 007 (+43)
    Gamerscore: 187 145 (+1 300)

    100% Completed Games: 180
    Percentage: 96.97% (+0.08)

    Picked up Ghost Recon: Wildlands so going to start that soon. Might squeeze something else in there if I can wrap up Shelter too.

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands: Played though this and finished for the 1k. Posted thoughts in other thread. Enjoyable enough, but probably a touch too big and repetitive. Great for co-op too.

    Dear Esther: Landmark Edition: Picked this up on sale awhile ago, played through for the full 1k. First of the walking simulators but a first timer for me. I enjoyed it for the couple of bucks I paid for it, not sure how'd I feel for full price though. It's an enjoyable enough experience for a few hours and open for you to draw your own conclusions. The director's commentary was an interesting addition and informative as to the process the creators went through. Recommended if you see on sale.

    Fallout Shelter: Finally got the last achievement in this for getting 20 legendary vault dwellers.


    Achievements: 8 061 (+54)
    Gamerscore: 189 195 (+2 050)
    True Achievement Score: 349 940 (+3 655)
    100% Completed Games: 183 (+3)
    Percentage: 97% (+0.03)

    Not going to track games to start anymore as I keep buying things on sale and forgetting about them and can't be bothered keeping track. Also ticked over to a 97% completion level.

    Not sure what's next. Got Dishonored 2 and Skyrim here to start but thinking about picking up Rise of the Tomb Raider. Plenty of digital titles to do too.

    I know what you mean about games to start. EA Access keeps giving free fucking games and I've completely lost track.

    I resisted EA access but I'll probably end up signing up for the Game Pass when that launches, so everything probably goes out the window then.

    Are you going to get a Scorpio at launch?

    I pay for EA Access simply because it's such a great deal and I like to support it. I'll probably do the same with that game pass thing even tho I rarely play lol.

    And no - but hoping to get back into XBoxing hardcore over the next little while. if I clear a bunch off my backlog maybe things will change. TBH I'm a bit ticked with a lot of the changes they've made to the current dashboard so not too pumped for it.
