Ok, so yesterday I joked in my gaming 2019 review, that I was 11 away from doing it, and could I get it before the end of the year.
Well after a little Fifa 20, Halo: Master Chief Collection and Forza Motorsport 6. I managed to get a few more than 11 and move past the milestone with days to spare.
Looking back, it was the 13th April 2019 that I hit the 5500 target and so I haven’t been playing a lot to acquire the additional 250. Approximately 31 per month, there are some LEGO games in there somewhere, LEGO Ninjago was 100% completed a little while ago. I think with a little more effort I could have reached it a while ago.
As I was playing back in April, Minecraft has also featured heavily in the gathering of achievements as tasks have been completed and games played through.
The below graphic, was my achievement completion percentage shown in the mid 2019 review post.
The completion percentage below is from today, you’ll notice that the percentage is down, this is despite me unlocking more I keep acquiring new games and am still playing catch up. Hovering around the same percentile marker.
I have games that I have recently acquired that I have not yet started, I’ll wait until 2020 and see how I can progress. I still have things to finish off, and I am sure that I can rapidly move towards the 6000 milestone.
Planning a little Assassins Creed 2020, I have a few games building up to be finished or started and they should distract me for a few days of play. Let me know if you are a fan of Assassins Creed and if so your favourite on of the series. I am playing them in a strange order but that is just due to the order that I got them.
So, I could have reached this target a couple of years ago probably if I had played a lot more and a few more things had gone my way. Then I wouldn’t be going back and replaying games the way I am, not that I am not enjoying that as there are always a few to keep in the locker for rainy days.
After a week of popping a few here and there and chipping away at the target, I decided to reinstall Killer Instinct and play through Survial Mode with a few more characters unlocking the achievements for that and the ones that you can normally pop along the way. This was 2 or 3 per character that I’ve done so far, then after doing this and funnily enough fancying a change of game I loaded up Anthem for a bit, then Minecraft.
So the Milestone Achievement was “Iron Belly”, quite fitting really for a day of play and achievement popping, not that I will now “Stop starvation using Rotten Flesh”. I will snack and refresh suitably before starting towards the next target.
I did earlier stream a little weekend drive on Forza Horizon 4 on Mixer so check it out and follow me there as I start to share my adventures more.
In total over the last 8 days during this streak I am on I have now unlocked 47 Achievements from 11 Games, these are;
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2
Call of Duty Black Ops
Assassin’s Creed Revelations
So if I haven’t mentioned any of the above recently, then you can see what I have managed to unlock Achievements in. I’ve played many other games too as you may have seen.
A couple of the above I am curently playing through and so more to do, the rest is just for fun.
