    Finished Skyrim, achievement wise, for the full 1 550g. Still have a few misc quests and cosmetic stuff I want to do.

    Nothing to really say that hasn't been said before. Game was amazing and I'm tempted to jump straight back into another playthrough. Finished on level 115 but still didn't manage to max out my one and two-handed skills plus most of the magic ones. If I played again would have exploited trainers much more in order to max level everything although it wasn't like I was under-leveled or under-powered as it was.

    Just realised I hadn't checked out mods either, as they disabled achievements. Might see what's around. See myself playing through it again at some point anyway.

    Didn't play much XBox this week but did have a nice long Xcom session yesterday.

    X-Com Enemy Within: Unlocked 9 achievements to this to put me at 15/30. I'm pretty much ready for the end game at this point with a team of snipers with that mimetic skin that makes them invisible. Unfortunately for achievements I need a shitload more meld - so basically have to keep doing that. Think I need around 200 more meld so will take time. No problem grinding though because my team just RAPES now and that makes it fun.

    Horse Racing 2016: Started this got 2 achievements in it. Seems generally easy enough. Easy game to pick up and play when I have a couple minutes to spare.

    Feels like it took me forever, but I FINALLY beat X-Com: Enemy Within.

    Such a fun game. I own XCom 2 but haven't heard as many good things about it so haven't thought about playing it yet.

    I ended up with 29/30 acheivements. The one I didn't get was beating it on classic+ difficulty without buying a squad size upgrade. Don't see me ever doing that one.

    With that out of the way I think I'm going to focus on a bunch of shorter games for now. Ones that take about 6 hours to beat - focus on getting the backlog down.

    So fun at the end having a team of 6 snipers and mimetic skin. Just absolutely raped every mothafucka.

    Mason also really enjoys that Slime Rancher and started and played that getting about 15 achievements.

    It'd basically require a shitload of saving/loading. The first few months would be the toughest but I expect when you get snipers with mimetic skins it'd be a breeze

    Months as in game time or real time?

    Little Nightmares: Picked this up and finished for 11 of 13 achievements. Dark puzzle/platformer, similar to Limbo. Worth checking out in a sale, but probably overpriced for what it is at retail. Controls are a little wonky too so you'll get the odd death from not moving where you want to. Other than that though enjoyable enough. Gotta finish it in under an hour with no deaths for final achievement, plus one for near misses which I think is cumulative.

    Nibbles - Game Time.

    Boner I know you loved the XCom games - did you ever play XCom 2 and what did you think?

    XCom 2 is a different approach cause you're almost always even more outnumbered than you are in the first one. Everyone is hidden to start the round and you can get a shitload of overwatch shots if you position your first attack correctly. It's a cool mechanic, but the problem is almost all the rounds pretty much start the same way.

    Basebuilding is also different and you have to worry about positioning a lot less.

    I still really liked it though, if you loved 1 then 2 is still great.

    I might get onto X-Com soonish then. Was thinking of playing some quick completions first to clear the backlog a bit, then maybe that or Dark Souls.

    A good week. After spending all that time on XCom I decided to clear a bit of the backlog while I decided what to play next.

    Horse Racing 2016: I played through this to get the other 9 out of 10 achievements. 1000g, completed and off backlog.

    Cel Damage HD: Played through this to get the remaining achievements. Think I only had 1 or 2 actually. Anyway 16/16 now and I'd recommend this game. Very fun especially with others.

    Coffin Dodgers: I'd tried this game a couple of times and never enjoyed it - felt the driving sucked. However think it was just the tutorial or something because when I got stuck in I ended up really enjoying it. Got all the achievements in this one, 22/22.

    Shred It: Not off the backlog yet but got 5 achievements in this. A couple of difficult ones I'll get them at some point.

    Baseball Riot: Angry Birds type game. Got 2 more achievements in this. It's fun enough but it's not one to grind through - I pick up and play it every so often for a few levels.

    Monsters vs Aliens: I looked into this one and I need one more achievement for getting a gold medal on all 35 challenges. Not worth the time. Game removed from backlog.

    Mass Effect 3: Not sure why this was still on my backlog as all the achievements require a 2nd playthrough and a fair bit of grinding. Maybe one day. removed from backlog at 55/65.

    Robotron 2084: Zero interest in playing this game tbh. Removing it from backlog at 5/12.

    After all that, I finally decided on a new game to play. Started Quantum Break. Fun game and such a cool premise. Finished the first two acts so far for 14/42 achievements.

    I hope to finish Quantum Break up this week. I'm off to the cottage next week for the week so after Quantum Break it'll just be random games off the backlog till I'm back I expect.

    Truthfully the 100+ hours I put into Zelda is worth it alone. Street fighter 2 and Bomberman have led to interesting flights as people love playing classics. No achievements yet tho. Unless the game comes with them built in. Eagerly awaiting sonic mania tomorrow

    I really liked Quantum Break although from memory there wasn't enough combat.

    Little Nightmares: Got the last two achievements in this for the full 1k. Hour playthrough without dying wasn't too bad as I would delete my save on death and go from last checkpoint. Would be painful legit, not so much due to the game being hard but the controls being a little wonky. Recommended if you see it on sale.

    Trials Fusion: Free with GwG. Planned to play a bit as I could do tracks here and there whilst playing something else, ended up blasting through it for most of the achievements. Servers were down for the first couple of days, no doubt due to increase in players. Played through most of the tracks again to beat Scot's times once they were back up.

    Still need two achievements. One is for completing all the challenges in the game, which I never got on the 360. The achievement tracker is separate from the game on the One though so you can cheese it, so will probably get that one. Other is for finishing Inferno IV which is the hardest track in the game. Had one go whilst playing through and made it about halfway. Managed to do it on the 360 so should be able to again eventually.
