Most Anticipated Game for March 2019

March 2019

I can’t believe that we’re already going to be in March already. I feel like this year hasn’t even scratched the surface of great games that are coming out. I’m super excited for this year in gaming and am still keeping my promise to only pre-order one game a month if that month has something in it for me to play and work on my backlog if not. Let’s see what’s in store for March.

*Just as a side note, my list of March releases is not perfect. There might be some missing, or some dates may change. If you have anything you want to add feel free to let me know in the comments and I’ll include it in the list.*

03/01/2019
Dead or Alive 6 – PS4

03/05/2019
Left Alive – PS4

03/08/2019
Devil May Cry 5 – PS4

There you have it, the games that will be coming out in March. For me, this is kind of a bland month so it’s not that difficult to see that I’ll only be ordering Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. I enjoyed the first game even though I didn’t finish it and feel like I bought it too late in order to be able to play it with friends and so on. Anyway, I’m not waiting this time and I’m going to get the sequel day one.

Now it’s your turn. What game are you looking forward to this upcoming month? I know a lot of you will be playing Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, but there will also be a lot of you playing Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which I really have no interest in. Let me know down in the comments section what you’ll be playing in March and I’ll see you next month to go over the games coming out in April!

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – Legacy of the First Blade – Episode 2 – Shadow Heritage DLC Review (PS4)

Assassin's Creed Odyssey - Legacy of the First Blade

Eager to continue my journey as Kassandra once more, I jumped into this second episode as soon as it came out. Although there was some trepidation because I had seen all about the controversy surrounding the second episode, I still had to see it for myself and judge it for myself as everyone should do. After adding another 3 hours to my already over 100 hour playthrough, I was able to get all of the trophies so that means it’s time for a review.

Taking place right after episode 1, Hunted, which you can read my review of here, you’ll continue as Kassandra or Alexios and run into Darius and Natakus or Neema while exploring Achaia. Realizing that no matter what they do they’ll always be on the run, Darius needs your help once more to escape Greece and get away from another section of the cult and the leader of this section, The Tempest. Will Darius finally be able to escape with the help of Kassandra or Alexios in this intense naval focused DLC? Or will Darius and Natakas or Neema finally find a place to call home?

The Controversey

Many Spoilers will follow

As you may already know Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is based heavily on choice as this franchise moves on its way to becoming a full blown RPG. Part of the choice that you can make pertain to your characters sexuality. Play Kassandra and Alexios as you want, straight, gay/lesbian, bi, or even asexual if you choose. This choice is thrown out the window in this DLC as no matter what you choose your character will enter into a relationship with either Natakas or Neema and produce a child. That is not how an RPG works and Ubisoft’s half-assed apology really hit a nerve as they said it had to be done for story reasons and “bloodline” reasons. The whole “bloodline” story basically ended years ago and makes no sense in the timeline seeing as Odyssey comes before Origins and Origins was about Bayek avenging the death of his son. After the death of his son there were no other children meaning no more bloodlines. I understand that Odyssey comes before Origins and this has to be linked, but does it have to do that by taking away the players choice? Being a part of the LGBTQ community, I played my Kassandra as a full blown lesbian who bedded every female character she could. To see her turned into a doe eyed idiot over some man in this DLC was just disgusting as I had no say in it. Did I break Natakas heart in the end by telling him I only wanted a family, yes since this was my only option. The only choice I had in this DLC that pertained to my heavily choice driven style of playing. There were so many different avenues Ubisoft could have taken for this major part of the story and their lack of doing so was just lazy. While they promised to fix this, I don’t see how they can and this did sour my opinion of this game and any other so-called RPG they make in the future.

Although I liked the overalls tory for this DLC, it was a little underwhelming. The cliffhanger at the end that will come into play in the final episode of this DLC was an interesting one, but not one that made this DLC worth it. The only interesting thing I could find about this DLC that was good was the increased naval activity and the new naval toy that was added to the Adrestia. All of this was over shadowed by the lack of choice and once again the briefness of this DLC.

The playability of this game remained stable once more as a few new skills were added to enhance your playing style, but that was it. Although the new naval toy is fun for the DLC, who will this come into play later on in the game especially if you’ve already completed the game? I can’t see myself going back out in the water just for fun to burn a bunch of ships. If the last four installments don’t concentrate on naval battle then it’s pointless. Notably, game breaking bugs and glitches were back as I had a complete game crash when trying to manually save. Everything was fine and nothing got corrupted as I was able to start the game again and pick up where I left off, but it is worth mentioning that it happened and needs to be fixed.

The graphics, while the same, were a little underwhelming as Achaia is no Macedonia and there wasn’t anything that I felt like I missed in this area during my initial playthrough. Also, there seemed to be facial problems this time around as when Kassandra went to express emotion it felt off and forced, just how I felt when going through each awkward scene.

There are another 5 trophies for this DLC and as with the first episode before it, the trophies are easy to obtain. All you have to do is complete the DLC, easy, use your new skill and naval toy, easy, use a weapon given to you in the game, easy, and eliminate the new branch of the cult, also easy. With the trophies being this easy there should be no reason why you shouldn’t be able to fully complete this DLC and get all of the trophies.

This game is still a single player game so there is still no multiplayer.

Overall I give this DLC a 2 out of 5.

What’s Great:
+ Kassandra and Alexios’s adventure lives on as you find yourself helping Darius once more and are left with a cliffhanger of an ending.
+ New skills and naval toys to try out and play with until you eventually get bored with them because you can only burn so many ships and laugh manically before it becomes a little overdone.

What’s Not So Great:
Another DLC on the short side. The story is a quick one and felt a little rushed. Hopefully the final DLC for this adventure will be a little more fleshed out and contain more choices.
Beware of glitches that cause game crashes and underwhelming graphics.

This wasn’t the greatest DLC for this game in so many ways. A main way was that this so-called RPG game turned into a standard Assassin’s Creed game since important choices were taken away. What I’m looking for going forward is to see how Ubisoft rights their wrongs and to just complete this episodic adventure before moving onto the next. At this point I would say that unless you want to pick up the season pass to get Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed Liberation for free to do so because it’s a good value, but if you’re looking for something enjoyable to continue Odyssey and then maybe hold off to see how things progress with the DLC going forward.

Deadpool 2 Review

Deadpool 2

Another Saturday night has come and gone meaning another movie just had to be watched. This week HBO actually had on something that I not only wanted to see, but something that I didn’t already see in the theater. That is a rare occurrence now a days which is why after Game of Thrones I will be giving up my HBO subscription since there’s really nothing good going on. Anyway, I enjoyed the first Deadpool, which you can read my review of here, so I had some really high expectations going in for the sequel. Keep reading to see if this movie met my very high expectations.

Deadpool 2 continues the story of Wade Wilson, played by Ryan Reynolds, who is now immortal thanks to some experimentation that was done on him because of his incurable cancer. Living his life as Deadpool, Wade is happy as can be until a life changing event with Vanessa, played by Morena Baccarin, takes place and Wade just wants to try to find a way to die. He’ll live even more recklessly as he normally does until Cable, played by Josh Brolin, comes from the future to stop Deadpool from helping out a new super villain Fire Fist, played by Julian Dennison. Will Cable be able to do this? Will Deadpool actually be able to kill himself? All of this and more will be answered in this exciting sequel.

I really enjoyed this sequel because it took the first movie and just amplified it by 100%. If you thought the first movie was way over the top, the second one is even more over the top than the first one. I didn’t think it was possible, but it totally is and was as the action scenes were more intense, the story line was way more over the top, and the comedy was also way more over the top. This movie exceeded all of my expectations. I thought this didn’t fall into any of the sequel tropes that usually occur and I’m eager to see the third movie hoping that it will be just as original as this one was and even more over the top if that’s even possible.

Ryan Reynolds is just a great Deadpool. I really can’t see anyone else playing Deadpool and once his time as Deadpool is up I’m really going to miss him and really can’t see this being done with anyone else. That being said, the supporting cast is great as well as it brings back Brianna Hildebrand and T.J. Wells and introduces new characters Josh Brolin and Zazie Beetz. The cast works really well together and even though the movie heavily relies on Ryan Reynolds. He does a good job of pulling the cast together and making this the best movie it can be.

Overall I give this movie a 5 out of 5.

If you loved the first Deadpool, this is a definite watch as it just continues Wade’s journey and leaves it open for yet another sequel. If you haven’t seen the first Deadpool, it’s a must watch and you’ll have to watch it before this movie so that you know what’s going on going in. This movie relies heavily on the fact that you’ve watched the first movie. I would say that if you’re a Marvel fan this is a much watch and even if you aren’t, why not give this series a try? It’s action packed, funny, and has an actual story that’s good. Either way I put this movie on my must watch list.

I Never Finished…Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational…Because

Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational

Hot Shots Golf was probably one of my most played games on the PS2 and when I seen this game available for the PS Vita, I knew I had to get it. Mostly for nostalgia reasons and those seem to get me in the most trouble. Anyway you know the deal, if it’s on this list, it means I never finished it so let me tell you why.

Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational is your typical Anime style “Hot Shots” type game. Choose your character and play golf. It’s as simple as that in this over the top style golf game. There are a bunch of different challenges, courses, and things to do that you think this game would never become boring.

Guess who got bored with this game? Me. Yes there are a bunch of things to do and this game fully utilizes the PS Vita by using the touch screen and all that good stuff, but you can only play so many times and lose before you get bored. While I did have the thought of getting trophies in the back of my mind, it didn’t stop me from putting this game down and never finishing it.

Out of the 37 trophies for this game, I was only able to get 6. This is painful because it make it look like I didn’t even try. I swear I did though because I even made it to the Bronze rank and just couldn’t beat it. Also, the trophies for this game are hard and a lot of them are ultra-rare.

Probability of this game getting played again…2 out of 5.

This isn’t my first choice when it come to the PS Vita games, but it is still installed on my PS Vita and with the Vita looking like it might be going away soon, I may have no other option if I for some reason happen to finish all the other PS Vita games that I have and need something to play on my PS Vita. That being said, I still have a bunch of PS Vita games so it’s gong to take a good long while before I will actually be able to get to this time

Now it’s your turn. Love this game? Hate this game? Buy it for nostalgic reasons like me? Let me know down in the comments section and for next week my first ever JRPG game. As you know, I’m a huge fan of RPG games, but I never played a JRPG which is why I decided to give Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch a chance. Come back next week to see why I never finished this one.

This Week in Trophies 02-10-2019 – 02-16-2019

Another interesting week in trophies for me as I started some games, finished some games, started some new games. This was even one of those weeks where I feel like I just didn’t game that much. We’ll take a look at my stat’s and see just how much I did or didn’t game this week.

Mixups by POWGI (PS4) – 100%

So I bought this game this week and even finished it so that means that I can’t talk about it here. I swear that all of these reviews for the POWGI games are coming, it’s just that I can’t keep up with them because I complete them so quickly.

LEGO The Incredibles – 28%

I continued to play this game this week and am just about at the end of playing this game. I think I have one more short stream for this game and then I should be done and go on my trophy hunting way to get the platinum trophy for this game. I’m missing a bunch of trophies so far and that’s ok because I’m sure I’ll have tons of fun going back and getting all of the collectibles and what not from each level and around the town. Sarcasm.

Tetris Effect – 31%

I’m enjoying playing this game casually as this isn’t one of those games that you just play for hours and hours on end because it’s that great. It’s just one of those games I use to kill some time when I need to and don’t want to get into a heavy story based game. Even though this game is still super trippy, it’s a fun one.

Word Sudoku by POWGI (PS Vita) – 100%

I was also able to finish this game this week and get the platinum trophy for it. I’ll be including the PS Vita versions of the POWGI games reviews in with my PS4 reviews just to keep things simple and that way it won’t be all that repetitive since the main game is basically the same and it’s just the playability that’s different.

One Word by POWGI (PS Vita) – 100%

I started this game this week and finished it. This review will also be combined with my PS4 review which I swear is coming up soon!

There you have it, a total of 89 trophies for the week. Definitely a good week and for a short month this is great. I’m not sure I’ll be hitting this number again for the upcoming week as I try to finish LEGO The Incredibles, play some more Tetris Effect, start Mixups by POWGI on my PS Vita and try to get in that second episode of Life is Strange 2. I’m having a really hard time playing that game. Anyone else? Anyway, I’ll let you know how everything turns out next week.

Dying Light Review (PS4)

Dying Light

I started this game way back in 2016 and it wasn’t until last year, at the urging of my buddy @tjarvinen86, that I picked it back up and started playing again. Even though I now had some consistent help, it still seemed to be one of those games that would end up on my I Never Finished…Because blog. I busted my ass though and did a major grind on this game and even went as far as setting up a gaming session to get the platinum trophy. With the platinum trophy proudly mine for this game I can finally say, it’s time for a review.

In Dying Light, you play as Kyle Crane who is an undercover agent for the GRE. Quite literally dropped off in Harran, Kyle’s initial mission is to find rogue politician and newly established war lord Rais. That is until Kyle gets bitten by a zombie. Rescued by Jade, Kyle will be taken to the Tower to be treated and see first hand what’s been going on in Harran. Working with both the Tower and the GRE, Kyle will have to decide if he’s going to continue working with the GRE or go rogue himself and help the people of Harran.

I initially bought this game because even though I don’t enjoy horror games, I do like zombie games. I had already played both Dead Islands on the PS3 and this promised to be something different. Perhaps a better, more worked out version of Dead Island. Not all that different though in the end because if you’ve bashed in the head of one zombie using a wrench, which you totally have to do for a trophy this time around, it’s basically the same no matter what game you play. What this game did add though was a first person parkour to it making this this basically Mirror’s Edge with zombies. I did think the game was a decent one even though the story was a little stale and the main character was unlikeable. I found Kyle to be just as unlikeable if not more unlikable than L.A. Noire protagonist Cole Phelps. Kyle was just a guy that I couldn’t root for and by the end I really didn’t care about him.

The playability of this game was just awkward. There just something about first person parkour that just never seems to work out right. The initial button mapping was awkward and I found myself constantly falling off something, a radio tower, a bridge, a roof, you name it and I fell off of it. The only thing that worked really well in this game was the melee. Bashing in a zombie’s head or slicing off a limb with a sharp object was just glorious and a highlight of this game. The gun play on the other hand needed some work as it was basically just shooting from the hip the entire time. While this worked sometimes, it didn’t work all the time. Other than that the game suffered from some bugs and glitches, but nothing too extreme.

Graphic wise I would say that while this game was impressive in 2016, in 2019 it’s pretty lackluster. Zombies and people besides the main characters become repetitive and so did the environment in the two different area’s of this game. While they aren’t the worst graphics, the slow motion when getting a good kill was a nice touch, they aren’t the best graphics either and have not held up well at all.

There are a total of 51 trophies for the base game and another tacked on 18 trophies for the DLC. While the trophies aren’t all that difficult, they will require a major grind especially for random events and at least three other people to play with. I had the biggest problem with the Homo Homini Lupus Est trophy, which had me saving 15 survivors from Rais’s men, because this is the least likely event to spawn. This was the last trophy that I needed for the platinum and I had to play the same mission over and over again to get it. This took me around an additional 10 hours to finish the game which was not fun.

The first time I played this game, I played with some random dude who then became my random stalker. The next time I played this game was with my buddy @tjarvinen86 and I had a blast with the co-op. This game was meant to be played with other people and it’s sad that the servers for this game are kind of dead and if you want to play with people you will have to setup a gaming session. Quick shout out to my gaming session buddies Coco, Eagle, and Hitman. There’s also a “Be The Zombie” mode, but I didn’t pay attention to it.

Overall I give this game a 3 out of 5.

What’s Great:
+ The story, although a little cliched is a decent one and better than Dead Island.
+ The slow motion melee is just glorious at times, especially when you get an awesome kill on a random zombie.
+ When you can find people to play with, the co-op is pretty fun even though you’re all basically playing as Kyle Crane.

What’s Not So Great:
While in 2016 this game probably looked great, the graphics don’t really hold up to today’s standards and already look outdated. Not to mention the environments are stale and repetitive.
First person parkour games rarely work out and this is a first person parkour at it’s worst. There’s also the face that while the melee is a highlight, the gun play is not.
Kyle Crane is extremely unlikeable and it makes the game as a whole suffer because no one wants to play as a douchebag.

While this is a huge step up from Dead Island, it still wasn’t the zombie game that I was looking for. I wanted something with more story, with more depth to it, and this just didn’t have it. I feel like this game could have had so much potential, especially if it had some more RPG elements added to it. That being said, I will say that I’m pretty excited for Dying Light 2. I hope that the mistakes made in Dying Light have been rectified and Techland has learned from their mistakes. I would say that if you’re desperate for a zombie game that I would choose this over Dead Island any day. I’m not sure if you’re going to have to play Dying Light in order to understand Dying Light 2, but so far it doesn’t look like it so I would say if you want to play Dying Light 2 that you can just skip this game since you aren’t missing much.

The Incredibles 2 Review

The Incredibles 2

14 years. That’s how long I waited to see this much anticipated sequel to a movie that to this day whenever I see it on TV I will stop what I’m doing and watch. The Incredibles was a groundbreaking Pixar movie that had everyone talking. The fact that it took 14 years to make a sequel to it meant that there was a lot of expectations going in. It also meant that everyone who originally watched the first movie was 14 years older and wasn’t really sure if this movie would age with the audience. When I first seen this movie I was 20, so based off of that keep reading to see if this movie met my very high expectations.

Taking place right after the first movie ended, I mean seriously, it picks up right where The Incredibles ends, you’ll rejoin the Parr family who are a family of Super Heroes. Still in hiding because Super Heroes are banned, Elastigirl, voiced by Holly Hunter, and Mr. Incredible, voiced by Craig T. Nelson, find themselves having to go back to a normal life until they get an offer from Winston, voiced by Bob Odenkirk, and his sister Eveyln, voiced by Catherine Keener. They want to make Super’s legal again because their mother and father believed in them so much. Winston grew up worshiping Mr. Incredible, Elastigril, and Frozone, voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, so he makes Elastigirl the one who’s going to bring Super’s back by showing how great they are meaning that Mr. Incredible is left at home with the kids trying to raise them. This will lead to Elastigirl’s first new arch nemesis The Screenslayer who believes that people don’t need Super’s and will do everything to sabotage Winston’s plans. Can Elastigirl save the day while Mr. Incredible plays Mr. Mom? You’ll have to watch and find out.

I’ve seen and heard a lot of negative things about this movie going in and I have to say that I have no idea what the hell these people were watching. Seriously. I thought that this movie was just well, incredible. I loved every single minute of it and felt like no time at all had passed from the first movie to the second movie. The CGI did change as time progressed, but it only enhanced the movie and made it that much more awesome. The movie was funny as Mr. Incredible tries to take care of the kids and fails miserably while Jack Jack comes into powers of his own and has an epic battle with a racoon. The movie was also action packed as you get to see Elastigirl at her best and not just some stay at home mom. The main villain of this movie, The Screenslayer, is also so perfect and fitting that it just brings the whole movie together. Sure this movie was two hours long, but I think that it was so long because Pixar knew that the original audience that watched The Incredibles had also aged with the movie and were going to need more than a 90 minute movie to keep them entertained.

The cast for this movie, which is the same cast from the original movie, except for Dash, was still awesome. All of the main actors, Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson, and Samuel L. Jackson work excellently together and it pays off. The cast has amazing chemistry and makes it believable that not only are they Super’s, but that they’re family and friends. All of them really make the movie and I couldn’t see this movie being cast any different.

Overall I give this movie a 5 out of 5.

14 years waiting for a sequel was a long one, but it paid off in the end and I seriously wouldn’t mind watching both The Incredibles and The Incredibles 2 back to back. I thought this movie lived up to every single expectation that I had and even exceeded it. There wasn’t a time in this movie where I thought it dragged or that it became uninteresting. I would say that if you’re a fan of the original movie that this is a must see because you know that you were waiting for a sequel to one of the best Pixar movies ever made. If you’ve never seen The Incredibles I would highly recommend seeing the first one and then watching this one. Either way this movie gets the must watch stamp of approval from me and is one that shouldn’t be missed.

I Never Finished…Call of Duty: Black Ops II…Because

Call of Duty: Black Ops II

As I said last week, I was still on this Call of Duty high after playing Ghosts, which you can read about why I never finished that game here, so I went out and bought this game. To be honest with you, when I bought this game I didn’t think I would ever finish it anyway so the fact that it’s on this list really doesn’t surprise me. But let’s get into the reason why I never finished it.

Taking place in two different time periods, in Black Ops II, you’ll play as Alex Mason, main character from the original Black ops, during the Cold War and then Alex’s son, David, during the future segments of the Second Cold War. Confused? I was. Anyway, a lot of things can happen during this game and they depend on whether or not you complete the strike missions that are available throughout the course of the game. There is also the multiplayer for this game, with the most popular being the zombies mode.

So why did I not finish this game. So many reasons. While I finished the main campaign of the game, I really didn’t understand it that well. I didn’t understand the significance of it, or why what was going on was going on. Probably because I didn’t play the original Black Ops. This was one of those games where I didn’t think I had to play the original and thought it would just stand on it’s own. I also really didn’t get the strike missions and had no idea what I was supposed to be doing. And then the multiplayer. I didn’t even touch the multiplayer for this game because of the experience I had in Ghosts. So, there you have it. That’s why I never finished this game.

As you can see from the trophy picture all the way at the top of the screen, I was able to get 20 out of the base 51 trophies. Not bad if you don’t count the DLC. If you count the DLC I was only able to get 20 out of a possible 91 trophies. That makes me sound like a huge failure then. Anyway, I got the most basic of trophies and that was about it. I did get a few random trophies and I’m missing all of the multiplayer trophies as well as some other random trophies throughout the rest of the game.

Probability of this game getting played again…0 out of 5.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II

I still have this game, I like to keep all the game that I don’t finish as a just in case, but I really can’t see myself playing this game. I also heard that the multiplayer can be hacked and make all of your trophies pop. That would ruin my score on PSNProfiles.com and it would mean that I would have to hide this game from my list and I don’t feel like doing that. So this is just one of those games that I will not be going back to any time soon or at all.

Now it’s your turn. Did you love this game? You loved this game, didn’t you? Did you hate it? Let me know down in the comments section and for next week, I actually went through a few weeks of finishing games so it was a while before my next game that I didn’t finish as I went on a PS Vita / PS4 kick. Anyway, my next game that I never finished was for the PS Vita and it’s Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational. I’m not sure why I never finished it so I’ll have to think about that one.

This Week in Trophies 02-03-2019 – 02-09-2019

As many of you know, I took a little mental health break this week which meant that I didn’t blog at all. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to, but it was because I needed it. There are so many things going on in my life right now that I just needed a break from something. I hate that it had to be from blogging because honestly, I love doing this stuff. I love writing about games, movies, and everything else and this isn’t the real stress in my life. It’s actually a mixture of a lot of other things that are unavoidable and unfortunately those are the things that pay me to continue to blog so while I had to keep doing those things, the blogging had to be taken a break from. I am back this week and will continue on with my normal blogs, starting with this one because it’s been one hell of an interesting trophy week.

Let’s start with my first platinum trophy of the week. Yes, there were more than one. My reviews are completely backed up now but since I got the platinum trophy for this game I can’t say much about it but I promise the reviews are coming and I’ll let you know what I think about the game when my review comes out.

My second platinum trophy for the week. There’s still one more to come. I played this game in a day so I really can’t say much about it here. I know it sucks because I want to talk about these games, but I also want you guys to come back for my review so my lips are sealed until then.

LEGO The Incredibles – 22%

I wanted to start something new this week and I did. It felt like forever since I last played a LEGO game and decided to give this one a go because of my love for The Incredibles. So far, I’m finding this game to be really short as I should finish with the main story in one more gaming session before going back and getting the rest of the trophies. Hopefully the rest of the game will actually take a little more time.

Tetris Effect – 27%

Because I had already finished two games, I figured why not start as many games as I finished. Makes sense right? It does to me anyway. So Tetris Effect. I feel like I get suckered into every single Tetris game that comes out because of my love for Tetris and everything Tetris and this is one of those games. Don’t get me wrong it’s a new and interesting take on Tetris that has both regular play and VR play, but this game is trippy as hell. I have no idea how someone would actually play this game in VR. I mean seriously, I can play maybe an hour at a time tops before this thing starts to really bug out my eyes and I have to stop. That being said, I am enjoying playing this game in small does.

Word Search by POWGI (PS Vita) – 100%

This is my third and final platinum for the week and it was one that was a long time coming. Since I’m so backed up on reviews I won’t be doing two separate reviews for the PS4 version of this game and the PS Vita version. They’re both identical games just played on different platforms, but I will be adding in a PS Vita section into my review of the game so that it won’t be left out.

Word Sudoku by POWGI (PS Vita) – 25%

Since I finished my current PS Vita game, I needed a new one and this was it. While I know all the basics about this game because I played on the PS4, I’m still getting used to the controls and it’s taking me a little while to get this game completed. I found Word Search to be a little more easier to play on the PS Vita, but I’m still having a fun time playing this game between bouts of boring TV.

There you have it, a whopping 83 trophies this week, 3 of them being platinum trophies. I’m really happy with this number as I spent a lot of time gaming this week and it not only showed but it paid off. Now for the upcoming week, I plan on finishing Word Sudoku by POWGI on the PS Vita and then starting and hopefully finishing One Word by POWGI for the PS Vita. While I’m doing that I’ll have one more stream of LEGO The Incredibles to finish the main story in stream before going off and finishing that game away from stream. I’ll also get in some more time for Tetris Effect and hopefully have just as an exciting week when it comes to trophies to tell you about next week.

This Week in Trophies 01-27-2019 – 02-02-2019

There really wasn’t a lot of time to game this week because once again life just gets in the way. I really feel like I need some time to just be able to game and relax, but that doesn’t seem like it’s going to be happening any time soon. I’ll get whatever I can get though and this week I got a platinum trophy, so let’s take a look at my trophies for the week.

Word Search by POWGI (PS Vita) – 85%

This remains my game of choice as I watch some episodes of Gotham every once in a while or some other boring TV show that I feel the need to watch but not really pay attention to. Anyway, I was able to lock down two more trophies for this game and should have the platinum trophy soon.

Word Search by POWGI (PS4) – 100%

I finally got the platinum trophy for this game this week, so that means that I won’t be saying much about this game at all until my review. This is still a few weeks away and I’m hoping that I can get the platinum for the PS Vita version at the same time so that I can combine the reviews.

There you have it, a total of 12 trophies for the week, but at least one was a platinum. I want to make solid gaming plans this week, but I just can’t. It’s really impossible for me to lay out any kind of schedule for gaming at this point in time so I’m just going to take it as it comes and I’ll let you know how I did next week.
