There were a bunch of different trophies this week from a bunch of different games including a brand new platinum trophy. Even though I still spent most of my time playing Fallout 4, I did have a little extra time to devote to gaming this week so I kind of spent that extra time playing some other games. Here’s a breakdown of my gaming week.
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune – 100%
I started out my week just right with this platinum trophy. I spent the majority of one day just powering through chapter after chapter of this game on crushing. In the end, the parts that I thought were going to be difficult actually weren’t and I was happy just to get this game finished with. I’ll have my full review of the game up on Wednesday.
Fallout 4 – 70%
I finished my very first playthrough of Fallout 4 this week. As much as I really liked the game and the story attached to it, especially the twist, I thought the ending was a little…underwhelming. At the moment I’m going back and collecting some trophies that I didn’t get before starting a new playthrough that will hopefully get me the platinum.
Pure Hold’em – 42%
I am really really trying with this game, and don’t get me wrong, it’s a good game. It’s just that the servers are basically dead. It’s a struggle to get into any kind of tournament and I’m really tired of playing with the AI over and over again. It’s just getting a little boring.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – 10%
I picked this game up when it was released on Tuesday for the PS3, thanks Playstation for not mentioning that it would be released for the PS4 on Saturday! Anyway, I picked up this game because I’ve been longing to play some old school GTA ever since I got rid of my PS2 a while back. I could have gotten the PS2 classic version of this, but didn’t because of lack of trophy support. With trophy support added I knew it was the perfect time to get back into GTA. I’m looking forward to playing III and Vice City on the PS4.
Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight – 90%
I am almost done with this game! I’m so close too. I only need another 24 stars to reach the 500 stars required for the final trophy. I have to tell you though, this game is being a real bitch when it comes to getting those final stars. I’m going to power through it though and will hopefully be able to finish sometime this upcoming week.
Minecraft: Story Mode – 40%
I had some free time and was eager to play the next episode of this game since I really enjoyed the first one, and then almost immediately regretted it. The second episode was just…I don’t’ want to give too much away here but I’ll have my review of the second episode up sometime after my review of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.
And that was it for this week. A pretty active week for trophies and that platinum made me one step closer to my year end goal. I will say this though, at the moment I’m a little burnt out on Uncharted. Playing the three times in a row like that was just crazy even though it took me a little over two months to complete. I had planned on going back to finish up Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but I’m going to wait until sometime next year to do that. As for this upcoming week, I’m going to continue working on Fallout 4, try really hard to finish up Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight, continue playing GTA: San Andreas, and I might just start an episode of Life is Strange since I picked up the season pass for $10.00 this week. I’ll let you know how everything goes next week.
