    I did.

    Planning on selling it at Christmas though to make some crazy money. I'll even ship to Australia for an appropriately outrageous fee.

    Is the Snes-3ds real or did I fall for a photoshop?

    No I think that's real. Only going to be released in Europe though.

    Which version of the SNES did you guys have over there? The normal Famicom or the weird looking purple box the Americans had?

    We had the Famicom pure one. Handheld sens now sounds like a winner.

    Well I'm finally at a spot work wise that I've not been at, well, ever - no backlog at all.

    I've also upped my staff which means a lot less work for me. I've got a new schedule of only working Tuesday-Thursday and I take Friday-Monday off. Feels great having a long weekend every fucking weekend.

    So hopefully a lot more XBox from me.

    I haven't updated much as the past month I was at the cottage then just motivated to finally clear my backlog. Now I'm ready to rock.

    I took advantage of this Saturday, where I spent all day just playing Quantum Break. I beat it for 36/42 achievements. HIGHLY recommend this game. It's sad it didn't do well sales wise because it's a really good game and one I had lots of fun with.

    It was probably the only game EVER where I would pick up collectibles that "add to the story" and actually fucking read them. Goddamn I enjoyed that game.

    It's off my list now althogh I might play through it again to get the remaining achievements (hardest difficulty and a few more collectibles).

    I've lost track of what else has been done. I've started Dead Island: Riptide with Mason and played a few misc games like Letter Quest. Looks like Mason started Hue and Super Mega Baseball.

    I'm in the mood for sports games so I'm going to hammer through next I think. Not sure how it will affect my to do lists as checking them I'm missing a few. So we'll see how it goes.

    After that I think I'm going to start Wastelander 2. I was tempted to go with The Witcher 3 but I'm also itching for a turn based strategy game - I enjoyed XCom so much I was debating XCom 2. So I figure I'll combine the two.

    I really liked Quantum Break too. My only criticism from memory is there probably should have been a bit more combat. I think the hard run is pretty easy too right up until the final boss.

    As much as you'll enjoy Witcher 3 it's a big time sink. Probably best to clear some quicker ones first, unless you can juggle multiple games at once.

    Just Destiny 2 here at the moment.

    Like I said last week I was going to explore my sports games. First up was Madden 15. I unlocked 6 achievements in that and that was me happy. I COULD play online with someone for like 45 minutes and unlock like 8 more but I can't be bothered with stuff like that anymore tbh. Especially with my kids starting games on my account and so many unobtainable/discontinued achievements, I really don't care about percentage anymore. I'll still track it here just for the hell of it.

    I then went to get a bunch of achievements in Fifa 14 to wrap that up and I got hooked on the Fifa games. So I ended up doing:

    Fifa 14: Got like 12 more achievements in that. Still a few I can get before I consider myself done.
    Fifa 15: 17 out of 45 in that.
    Fifa 16: 16 out of 48 in that.
    Fifa 17: 2 out of 44 in that.

    I never got round to Wasteland 2 unfortunately. Looks like Mason started GALAGA and Pac-Man and that new Minecraft and Hue.

    XBox Games to Wrap Up: 149 (-1)
    New XBox 360 Games: 89
    New XBox One Games: 140 (+1 - bought This is the Police)

    Wouldn't you rather they have their own tags so you can put parental controls on them?

    Nah I don't think there's much to worry about with the parental controls shit. And no point paying for XBox Live multiple times - I barely use it other than Games with Gold and when I need chivos while Mason plays online with his friends so it works out well. Mason actually does have his own account that we set up for Dead Island Riptide but he's got no interest in going through adding all his friends again plus he'd lose all his saves.

    Yeah but I haven't really played the older ones yet so I'm fine going through them atm.

    Started Wasteland 2 finally. Played for 3 hours last night, no achievements. Not sure how I feel about that.

    Haven't heard of that one? Nearly bought Shadow of War today, but figured I have more than enough stuff on the HDD to get through. Gonna try and knowck out some quick ones this week. Sounds like Shadow is a bit of a grind too, unless you pay money for unlocks lol.

    Finished Trials Fusion too for the full 1000g. You could cheese the challenges by deleting saves, but decided I wasn't going to do that unless I could pass Inferno IV again. Couldn't do it last time I was playing getting stuck about half way through. This week I thought I'd have a crack whilst listening to podcasts and without sound I did a lot better. First try I made it to the last point, however ran out of time. Second time I made it there with about 15 mins to spare so just had plenty of time to work on it.

    Might play Gone Home this week since it's free and quick. Not sure after that. If The Evil Within 2 is getting good reviews might be tempted to pick that up. Will definitely be getting Wolfenstein 2 whenever that's out.

    For achievements it's no good(unless you look them up beforehand I expect) but it's a very addictive and fun game. I unlocked an achievement last night and was so pumped ha - 1 achievement in what feels like 10 hours. (Although xbox says 6 hours)

    It's by the same guys that made the original Fallout. Picture Fallout 3/NV except you create 4 characters instead of 1, you have to pick a bunch of stats at the beginning(to make each character their own), then its an overhead view(similar to xcom) in the fallout world with turn based combat.

    It's incredibly fun getting all the quests etc and leveling up and so on. Thoroughly enjoying it. Incredibly addictive.
