This Week in Trophies 05-01-2016 – 05-07-2016

This was one of those weeks where I felt really scatter brained and that meant that I not only started one new game, I started three new games. Which now that I have a clear head I realized was really stupid because Uncharted 4 comes out this upcoming Tuesday and there’s nothing that I want to play more than that. Anyway, I’ll most likely be paying for my mistakes as I end this month not accomplishing anything, but here’s a look at the trophies I was able to get this week.

Mass Effect – 72%

I finished my first replay through this game early last week and was really happy with the outcome. For all the faults that I found with the original game, I have to say that the second time around I enjoyed it a lot better than I did the first. As soon as I can I’ll be importing my recent Shepard into Mass Effect 2 in order to hopefully get the last DLC trophy that I need for the 100% on that game.

Battleborn – 12%

I got this game a whole day early and was able to find out really early that I’m not liking this game at all. It’s a real struggle for me to play it because there are so many things that I think are wrong with it. The first thing is basically that there’s an episode based story which is just stupid. There is no constant playthrough, no actual missions or side mission and you can’t just open your party for random people to join, you have to go into a matchmaking system and then hopefully everyone will agree on which episode to play. If not you’re pretty much screwed and you’ll end up jumping around making the story not even make sense or make you feel like you shouldn’t even be invested in the story to begin with. Instead of this game, I really wished that Gearbox would have worked on Borderlands 3.

Table Top Racing: World Tour – 12%

I got this game free this week thanks to PS+ and I decided to give it a try. I figured what the hell. It looked interesting enough, even though I’m totally not into racing games, and it was different. I gave Rocket League a chance so I wanted to do the same with this. I have to say that I actually enjoyed this game a hell of a lot more than Battleborn and am playing almost every chance I can get. I look forward to one day hopefully getting the platinum trophy for this game.

Tropico 5 – 14%

Who ever said that PS+ doesn’t give you anything good? I’ve been waiting for this game to go on sale since it came out and could never find it at a decent price. Do you know what price is really great? Free. I jumped at the chance to download this game this week and start playing as soon as I possibly could. I did not regret doing that one bit. I find myself playing for hours upon hours when I didn’t intend to in the first place. The campaign is challenging and frustrating, but I’m really enjoying it.

That was it for this week. It was nice that I had a little more time to game but that all changes again this week. This week is busy busy for me which means that I won’t get all that much time to game and I absolutely hate when that happens on a week where a new game comes out that I’ve been waiting for. Anyway, for this week I doubt I’ll even get a chance to start Mass Effect 2, so I’ll probably skip it, I’m definitely going to start Uncharted 4 sometime this week, I’ll probably play Table Top Racing: World Tour and Tropico 5 when I get a chance, and I might try to go back and play some Battleborn if I’m absolutely bored out of my mind. I’ll let you know how things played out for me next week.
