    I won't buy an XBox One X until my current TV dies and I need to get a new one. Then I'll get a 4k and the XBox One X with it.

    Made some progress in Skyrim. Turns out I shouldn't have been worried about perks and leveling up as you can reset skills at 100 and re-level, effectively allowing you to level up indefinitely. I'm not sure if there is a cap.

    Thieves Guild: Finished off the questline here for all related achievements.

    The Companions: Joined this crew next and I think I'm only a mission or two away from the end. Not sure how it's going to end at this point, taking a guess that I'll have to make a choice as to whether or not to remove their 'gift'.

    Also been doing a lot of misc quests, although probably not a good idea as I might break other quests.

    Currently level 72.

    XCom Enemy Within: Still chugging away at this. Only got the one achievement in it even tho I sunk a buncha time into it.

    Ghost recon Wildlands: Started this. Very fun if a fair bit repetitive. Got 9 achievements so far.

    Think once I beat XCom I'll look at beating a bunch of easier games to get the backlog down.

    How is Xcom? I think I have that from a GWG. Wildlands is a bit of a sink if you plan on doing everything. I'd hijack resource vehicles every now and then as well as whenever you come across one, saves a big grind at the end if you don't.

    XCom is one of the best games of the 360 generation. It's rogue-like so you can't use a guide sorry.

    Actually I still have Wildlands so if you see me on and want to do the co-ops let me know.

    Yeah I ended up looking up the achievements for Widlands to give me an idea of what to go for etc. I've got a good system going as I'm playing co-op with a friend. So we do the missions together in an area(and some side quests and collectibles as we go along) then I go back the next day and mop up that area by myself.

    It's good but it's difficult and I'm playing on the easiest difficulty. Have to resort to saving/loading a ton.

    Yeah, it's much more fun co-op as breaks up the monotony. Collectables you can plug away on, but only thing I'd worry about is the resources for upgrades. I was doing them pretty constantly, but if you didn't it would be a massive grind post-game.

    On that front I'd get the emp drone as quick as you can. I'd use that to disable the truck, take out the convey and then get the undamaged truck pretty easy.

    None. Actually this go-around I didn't bother naming them. My team is Bob Lee Swagger(Sniper), Mitch Rapp(Shotgun Assault/Scout), Sniper 1, Sniper 2, Sniper 3 and Sniper 4.

    Yeah I read that about resources and focusing on it.

    And oh that's cool about the EMP Drone - never thought of that cheers I'll go for that. Thanks.

    Unfortunately with it being summer that means a ton of sleepovers here so no Xboxing for me. Both kids at camp next week though so can get some done then.

    I unlocked exactly ZERO achievements this week.

    Minecraft Story Mode: We bought Season 2 episode 1 and Mason beat it that very night.

    Also 2 misc achievements by the kids unlocked in Watch_Dogs 2 and Castle Crashers.

    In a game with death, violence, running over people in your car, shooting them, throwing grenades at them etc - Ella unlocked "Pet 10 dogs" in Watch_Dogs 2.

    On the tail end of Skyrim, as far as achievements are concerned. Still got plenty left to do across the game. Only just started with the main quest.

    Completed everything related to the Companions, the College of Whiterhold and the Civil war achievements. Also the Hearthfire DLC as I've bought land and built houses in all the relevant holds. Spent far too much time furnishing them too. The Dark Brotherhood is the only guild I have left to go through. I'll probably do that on a separate save as, looking at the achievements, I'll have to do a bunch of stuff which doesn't jive with my "help everyone and be nice" character.

    Current level 98

    I messed up by not understanding how the training system works though. I only just realised that you can only train one skill through trainers per level. I thought you could train all skills 5 times and figured other trainers I came across wouldn't train me as I'd already leveled that skill up 5 times on that level. Could have maxed out combat stuff so much easier if I'd realised this from the start.

    Unfortunately pretty much nothing from me this week. Kids are in camps all week from here on out though so that should change things.

    Final Fight Double Impact: Played through this with Mason. Had never started it on the XBone before - unlocked 2 out of the 12 achievements.

    Fifa 14: Servers for this are closing so I threw this on when I had a few minutes. Had issues previously with this one and no achievements unlocking but seemed to work. Got 5 achievements will get the rest.

    Then looks like a couple of misc achievements from Mason in Minecraft and GTA 5.

    Half way or so through the main quest in Skyrim and that's all I have left for achievements. Probably would have finished by now if I wasn't spending my time furnishing all my houses I've built up. Seething though as I wanted the fiery soul trap enchantment only to find out I'd already cleared the area, where the one weapon in the game that has it, is found. Went back and it wasn't there.

    Currently level 115.
