I feel like even though this has been a super crazy, very stressful week, that I still got a lot done gaming wise. Since I’m always pretty vague on some personal aspects I will say that I work a very boring desk job and I also freelance as a Web Designer. This week both job aspects were extremely crazy as my boring desk job was anything but and an old client who decided he didn’t want a website decided that he wanted one again and he wanted it yesterday. Needless to say, gaming is my very much needed escape from everything. Let’s take a look at what trophies I was able to get between the crazy.
Tom Clancy’s The Division – 7%
I continued to play this game this week and I can’t stress enough how much I love this game. I really don’t know why, but I just do. If I could play all day I would since there’s just so much to do. Anyway, this game is becoming a fast favorite and at the moment I’m enjoying my time playing solo, but I’m sure I’ll have to get into actually playing with other people real soon.
Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition – 16%
As I said last week, I would be starting this game in order to help out someone on my friends list, LMD, who just happens to be my dad. Since he’s helped me out so much in the past, I felt obligated to help him since he really doesn’t get into that many games and usually sticks to one or two games at most. Anyway, he loves this game and needed some help so I offered. I actually enjoyed my time playing this week and look forward to continuing.
Fallout 4 – 86%
I finished the main story for Nuka-World this week. I still have a lot that needs to be done for that DLC, but I have to say that it was not bad. I didn’t really expect to see my beloved character go from the ultimate good guy to the ultimate bad guy, but I have to say it was a welcomed change and kinda fun. Anyway, there’s still a lot to do when it comes to this DLC which means some more time playing Fallout 4 in upcoming weeks.
That was it for this week. Not a bad trophy haul if you ask me, but next week is probably going to be a little different. Work plans on being crazy and so does the freelance Web Design stuff and I can only put things off for so long before I have to stay in the real world and do real world things. I am going to try to game as much as possible but I also have a tattoo session this week that I’m of course looking forward to. Of course I’ll be telling you more about that in the upcoming weeks, but as for gaming this week, I’m going to get in a day of playing some Dragon Age: Origins while I continue to play Tom Clancy’s The Division, Minecraft, and Fallout 4. I might download a couple of free games that are available for the PS4 too, but that’s a huge maybe and it depends on how much time I actually have. Anyway, I let you know how things go next week.
You finally got into The Division :]. I reviewed it a few months ago and updated it last month with the new DLC. Ubisoft kind of killed my enthusiasm for the game since they keep nerfing all of the good gear in the game, but I do love The Division. I’m just really mad at it right now :).
Fallout 4 is just awesome. I can’t wait to play Nuka World.
Great review of The Division. It’s extremely accurate and you might have even talked me into getting the DLC for the game in the upcoming future when I finish the main game. I’m really enjoying my time in the game and I might even venture into the Dark Zone sometime this week. That’s a big maybe though.
Before you play Nuka-World make sure you have a lot of ammo…a lot, and that you’re stocked up on Rad-X and Radaway. Just a tip. 😉
I’m never short on ammo in FO4 :]. I have a ammo crafting mod that allows me to make my own ammo. Radaway and Rad X isn’t a problem either, but thanks for the heads up :].
Thanks for the words on my Division review. The Underground DLC is good if you want to grind for that next tier of equipment in the game, but if you’re mostly a solo player then it’s not for you because you need a group to survive in that mode. Teamwork is important because it’s hard.
I gave up on the DZ because it turned into CoD over time. At least on the PC version it did. Hopefully you’ll have a better time.
Playing on the PS4, mods are not an option for me so I was basically hitting up every shop that I could looking for the specific ammo that I needed for my high powered weapons. I wish I had an ammo crafting mod, but oh well it’s not like I needed my caps for anything else other than ammo.
I’m sure I can eventually find a group, it’s just about finding the right one. It seems like when everyone on my friends list is playing, I’m the only one that’s not and then when I finally get the game, I’m the only one playing.
Hopefully the Dark Zone on PS4 is not like that, but it probably is which means I’ll probably just go in there to grind out the trophies required for the platinum.
I assure you that having a boring desk job, isn’t a bad thing. It’s the opposite for me and I’d just rather have a quiet job. Go figure
Don’t get me wrong, I have my days that are crazy and I enjoy those days because there’s so much to do and I’m constantly working, but that’s maybe 1-2 days a week if I’m lucky. The rest of the time I’m just sitting there thinking about all the video games I could be playing if I wasn’t stuck at my job.
I CAN relate, as I work rotating shifts 2nd and 3rd shift. 3rd is very much of what you’re talking about. My advice, type up a backlog and STICK TO IT! You’ll save yourself a ton of money and it’ll mix up the gameplay. When I do the backlog, I intentionally mix up the genres to keep things from being boring when I do get to play. I’m falling behind on that backlog, but it will keep me busy until the damn end of time at this point.
It’s so hard to stick to the backlog list though! Especially with all the new games coming out that I want to play when they actually come out. I know what it’s like to have a huge backlog though. I have so many games just saved up it’s like if for some reasons video games go extinct, I’ll still have something to play.
Having a tight budget prevents that from happening to me these days. But as long as you realize, that these games aren’t going anywhere. Unless they’re a game that’s a MUST PLAY, I’m sure it can wait. Mass Effect Andromeda is mine right now.
You know, I never really thought of it that way. That these games aren’t going anywhere. It’s an interesting concept that I’ll have to try and get used to. But I can totally agree with you when it comes to Mass Effect Andromeda. That game is mine on release. I can’t wait to get back into the multiplayer and see where this new story goes.
An improvement on the multiplayer would be nice. But want the core game to be as grand as the universe it portrays.
N7 day is right around the corner so I’m sure they’ll be revealing more about everything. Personally I wouldn’t mind if the multiplayer was the same as Mass Effect 3, I would just like the story to be as epic as the Mass Effect trilogy. With a better ending of course.
Honestly, I wasn’t completely dissatisfied with the trilogy’s ending.
It’s just really hard for writers to end epics. Sometimes the creative desire to be different, hampers the satisfactory conclusion, we all crave.
That’s true, I just think some things could have been better. I really wanted that big victory moment like in Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 where Shepard does the impossible…and lives. Not in theory, but actually lives.
