Achievements are pretty straight forward for the most part, although a few tricky ones that would be really hard without the save feature.

    Call of Duty: WWII: Just played the online unlocking a couple of achievements. Same old COD really although the back to basics approach feels fresh after the last few years of future stuff. Will probably get to the single player next.

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus: Finished this for 970g. Really enjoyed the game. Story and characters were really well written, action and shooting is top notch and some really good story points that originally had me thinking I'd messed something up. Only achievement remaining is finishing the game on the hardest setting in one sitting with no saves. It's certainly doable but would require a lot of practice on certain sections I think. You can stealth a lot of the game but there are a few firefights you're forced into and you die awful quick. I might have one crack just to see how far I can get but can't see myself doing this one.

    Probably start the COD single player next whilst smashing out some quick finishes.
    But did you punch a nazi

    The prologue of MGS V: Phantom Pain is absolutely brutal. If I hadn't played Ground Zeroes and knew what joy waited I would have quit that shit. Holy crap that wasn't fun at all.

    I've tried twice to start that and couldn't get through the bed dialogue. Deleted it. Someday I'll play it.

    If you can get past that it's a great game. Did you play Ground Zeroes? If not give that a try and you'll know what to expect.

    But oh man you can't even get past the bed dialogue? Wait till you have to spend 15 minutes literally CRAWLING from cut scene to cut scene.

    Oh man I am loving Metal Gear Solid V so much. It's like my dream game - an open world Splinter Cell game. So much fun.

    Had 2 fun ones when running to the chopper to extract me after a mission.

    - Running away about 100 meters away feeling all good and relaxed when I turn the corner into a truck. Just fucking pull my gun out and go nuts on the driver and passenger.
    - Running away and right at the extraction zone when I smack head first into a fucking bear. Then I'm running from it while hitting it with 50 tranquilzers. Finally went down.

    What a game. Fultoning people is the greatest thing in any video game ever. So much better than just tagging em for later

    lol I forgot all about the prologue, that was painful for sure. Actually let me know when you're getting into the base building as I can tell you something spoilerish but will save you losing a lot of troops.

    Sure go for it. I'm just at the part where I've started to increase my R&D section as it got full.

    Bought the family a Nintendo Switch for Xmas. That thing is pretty darn fun. Haven't got invested in Zelda or Mario Rabbids yet.

    Back from Scotland got a new life routine going and that includes Xboxing. Hoping to clear the backlog. I'll have 2 games on the go - a game I just need to wrap up(get more chivos in then done) and my main game. Metal Gear Solid V is my main game right now. Hopefully beat that before the game pass deal is up.

    I'll only post here when I beat a game and it comes off the backlog at which point I'll do updates. Bought some new games and totes lost track so hopefully as I work through the backlog I'll get it all sorted.

    EA Sports UFC 2 is off the list. Wrapped that up this morning getting the last few needed achievements.

    XBox Games to Wrap Up: 150
    New XBox 360 Games: 94
    New XBox One Games: 148
    New XBLA Games: 61
    XBox Kinect Games: 24.

    Current Stats:

    Achievements: 10,963
    Gamerscore: 255,953
    True Achievement Score: 401,644
    100% Completed Games: 105
    Percentage: 59.22%

    I got UFC 2 for free a couple months back. I just need to play through a live pick or something for the platinum, knowing my luck they won’t do live events anymore now.

    I believe that's still active.

    That one for doing 4 custom fights on an event - you can do CPU vs CPU so I thought I'd do throw it on in the background while I work. Ended up getting hooked watching the matches I put on - GSP vs Anderson Silva, Conor vs Nick Diaz, Jon Jones vs Alistair Overeem and Daniel Cormier vs Chuck Liddell.

    Was a blast to watch - Silva crushed GSP in like 41 seconds. Overeem kept manhandling Jones but then in the 3rd Jones on the ground caught an armbar on him off his back etc.

    Now on Friday me and HRHomer are gonna set up a card and just watch via Mixer or Twitch or whatever. Stupid but fun.

    I did the same thing when I did the custom event trophy. I was watching Always Sunny on android box and switching back to make sure it was still going. Ended up watching Werdum KO Big Country with body kicks and then watching the whole card. CM Punk lasted 3 rounds against Matt Hughes, and he had Hughes at the 3rd or 4th submission gate in a guillotine at the end of the 3rd round. Hughes won with a unanimous 30-26 decision lol. I really enjoyed UFC 2, surprised how much fun I got out of it, and I’ll probably grab 3 when it drops in price the first time.

    Got through a few games in December.

    Arcade Game Series: Galaga & Dig-Dug: Other two games in the game series packs. Like Pac-Man straight ports that allow you to pick levels after completion and save. Nothing too taxing however would be much harder if you couldn't rely on the save system. 1k on both.

    Beyond Eyes: 3rd-person walker where you play as a blind girl looking for a cat. World unfolds around you as you move around relying on sound to guide you to distant areas. Mostly story driven, really enjoyed it however it would be nice if you could move a bit faster around areas you've already explored. Finished for full 1k.

    Virginia: 1st-person point and clickish game although more interactive cinematic. Has a Twin Peaks vibe to it all and lots of symbolism. No dialog either so you're left to your own interpretation, although isn't hard to work out the basics. Pretty short too so welcomes another playthrough to see what you might have missed. Completed for the full 1k.

    Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour: Played this on the 360 but was on sale for a couple of bucks so couldn't resist. Ability to switch between the original and the updated version, which I think was on the N64, which has better resolution. Has the extra episodes from the Atomic edition which wasn't in the 360 version, plus a 5th episode by the original designers. Level commentary is also included however I would have liked more of it.

    Mostly been playing COD multiplayer at the moment, still need to go through the single player there. Finally got Inside in the sales too, so looking forward to that.

    Yeah, length was good. Enough that you'll play it again and not long enough to outstay its welcome.
