    lol

    I like the new dashboard, although the home thing took a little getting used to. What's your issues?

    Ugh. Got another friend to hook me up with his game sharing. Now my list of games to start has just went up and up and I've completely lost track. Life is so tough sometimes.

    He turns down the lights, turns on some Marvin gaye and sends Janice and the kids to Denny's.

    I didn't game share with him. He killed himself but before he did gave me his xbox password so I could get all his digital games.

    Went through and updated my list and removed some games.

    Hoping to get back to playing this week. Might have to skip Watch_Dogs 2 for now as I'm just not feeling it and that's been putting me off playing XBox.

    Here's ones I removed:

    Hitman Absolution: I just don't see me grinding through this on professional difficulty or whatever it is for one achievement. As much as I enjoy 1king games - off my list.
    Perfect Dark Zero: I had added this back to my list due to Rare Replay. I need 150 more gamerscore in it for the stamps or whatever. But it'd require me grinding multiplayer or playing a game that I just never liked on a tough difficulty. if I ever get enough achievements in Rare Replay that doing that will get me the 1k I'll do it but until then - off my list!
    Stuntman Ignition: Very first Xbox 360 game I ever played and the sole reason I bought a 360. Had it on my list hoping to go back to it for some achievements but to be honest they're all just too bloody difficult. Off my list.
    TMNT Arcade: I remember going for achievements in this and it didn't give me them. Not playing this shite again. Off my list.
    Trials HD: Don't think I can get the remaining achievements plus I have both Trials Evolution and Fusion. Off my list.
    Smackdown vs RAW 2011: There's 3 unobtainable online achievements and 1 for doing 1004 signature moves. I'm not going to bother with the latter - always thought about going for it but nah. Unlike Taff(who has it and even wrote the best guide for it) I've got a life.

    Not sure what will happen with the games on my friends account(when his gold expires or something else) so I've put that on my "Other Games" list below.


    XBox Games to Wrap Up: 156.
    New XBox 360 Games: 89.
    New XBox One Games: 117.
    New XBLA Games: 59.
    Other Games: 33.
    XBox Kinect Games: 24.

    Total: 478 lol.

    Current Stats:

    Achievements: 10,217
    Gamerscore: 236,388
    True Achievement Score: 367,025
    100% Completed Games: 99.
    Percentage: 59.37%


    No goals or anything like that. Juts gonna look through the lists and pick a game to play.

    Surprised Watch Dogs 2 didn't grab you. Thought we both liked the first one for the same reasons and I really enjoyed it.

    Yep maybe I'm just not in the mood for a sandbox game at this time. Looking at my mates games I really want to play Bastion. Also been thinking about Gears 4 so we'll see.

    Since last updated I couldn't decided what to play next so I thought I'd smash out some quick games.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warefare Remastered: Have been playing the multiplayer but decided to smash out the single player. Whilst it is a remaster, it felt just the same as the first time I played it. Might have to check out the previous version as I'm sure that's not the case, you have a tendency to remember things been far more detailed than they actually were. Great as far as remasters go anyway, same as the old with a few extra achievements. I really liked that they added someone to a part of the story so it matched MW3 and there was an achievement tied to killing them. Nice little detail.

    If you're buying this you're buying it for the multiplayer anyway, but single player still stands up. Supposedly it's getting a stand-alone release in July. Also fuck Activision for releasing the DLC maps but keeping them separate from the Infinite War season pass. What a waste of fucking money that was.

    Murdered: Soul Suspect: Played this on the 360. Was a GwG title awhile ago so thought I'd play through it again. Not bad for what it is although really just playing through for the story. The gameplay aspect is pretty light really. Worth a playthrough as it's nice and quick if you get it very cheap, or free in this case. The story wins out for what is pretty basic gameplay, but nothing you'd come back to.

    Achievements: 8 159 (+98)
    Gamerscore: 191 195 (+2 000)
    True Achievement Score: 353 138 (+3 198)
    100% Completed Games: 185 (+2)
    Percentage: 97.04% (+0.04)

    Beat Bastion for 6/22 achievements. Miiight do the New Game +. I figure I'll give it a whirl anyway.

    Game was okay. Story didn't really hook me and got a bit dull at times. One of those games where you're glancing at a list of levels to see how long you've got left.

    Feel like going through an FPS or Third Person Shooter next. Looking at potential games on my list:

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2
    Battlefield 3
    Battlefield 4
    One of various COD games
    Gears of War 4
    Gears of War Judgement
    Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
    Medal of Honor: Airborne

    I've got tons more I'm sure but they jump out at me. Everything except Advanced Warfighter looks to be 6-8 hours single player so will probs go with one of them.

    Think new game + is a quick run as all your stuff carries over from memory.

    The CODs are usually 8 hours or so, but you'll usually need multiples playthroughs to get everything. The Black Ops ones are harder than the Modern Warfare ones too.

    Going to try and get back to doing these every Monday.

    Okay since the last update:

    Bastion: Beat this for 6/22 achievements. Need a second playthrough for the rest. Will get to at some point but right now it goes off the suicide friends list and onto the Xbox Games to Wrap Up list.

    Cars 2: Started this and beat it. Quite a fun game. Has one really tough achievement where you have to hit the right trigger really fast at the start of a race - and do that 40x. I've tried about 50x so far and only got a perfect start 3x.

    Anyway ended up with 45/50 achievements. It's off the "New XBox 360 Games" list and onto the "XBox Games To Wrap Up" list. Will wrap it up eventually.

    Medal of Honor Airborne: I actually thought this was an XBox One game right up until it asked me to save on the cloud lol.

    Anyway I started this up and HATED it. Played through the first mission and was so glad to be done it. However I just wasn't aware what type of game it was.

    I realized when loading it up yesterday and seeing a hint that it has the whole "go into cover and lean" feature and that the game REALLY wants you to do that. Once I figured that out I ended up loving playing through it yesterday.

    So 2 out of 6 missions done on normal difficulty for 9 out of 46 achievements. Haven't looked at the achievements but the road map said to do it in normal then play through on casual for more. I'll wait till I'm done this before looking.

    The Biggest Loser: The game inspired by Osiris lmao. I decided to get some kinect games going during my off days from running. I've got so many I should power through them. Not too worried about achievements as the Kinect for 360 blows so I'll just take what I can get.

    Had already started this one awhile ago and got 1 achievement. I've started a 4 week plan and I unlocked 2 achievements from it yay. So 4/45.

    Fun fact: I first started this back in September 2012. Yikes.

    XBox Games to Wrap Up: 158 (+2)
    New XBox 360 Games: 88 (-1)
    New XBox One Games: 117.
    New XBLA Games: 59.
    Dead Persons Games: 32.
    XBox Kinect Games: 24.

    Current Stats:

    Achievements: 10,283 (+66)
    Gamerscore: 237,528 (+1140)

    I unlocked an achievement in the Ghost Recon DLC despite not playing the game in months and not owning the DLC.

    Same. Hopefully I actually download and play the 2 games a year to make it worthwhile.
