Another month has just flown on by and even though my trophy count was down, I can tell you that right now, I still played a bunch of different games. My goals though are seeming a little less achievable as December is right around the corner and I already failed one goal. With so many new games coming out I just wasn’t able to keep my goal of only pre-ordering 5 games this year. Anyway, let’s take a look and see how my month went.
Gaming Goals for 2017
Have a total of 100 platinum trophies.
– Starting # of Platinum Trophies: 79
– Ending # of Platinum Trophies: 79
There were no new platinum trophies for this month as I was trying to get the Fallout 4 platinum to make it my milestone platinum trophy. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen as I got side tracked by a lot of other games and playing Fallout takes a hell of a lot of time. Anyway, even though it won’t be Fallout, a platinum trophy or two should be just around the corner so I’m not that upset about it.
Have a total of 8,500 trophies.
– Starting # of Trophies: 7,627
– Ending # of Trophies: 7,711
There were so many games played this month and I still couldn’t get 100 trophies. I was only able to get a sad 84 trophies this month even though I tried so hard. Ugh, this number has me struggling as I’ll never reach 8,500 by the end of the year now. I’m going to say though that if I can reach at least 8,000 I’ll be happy. Kind of.
Have 150 games completed at 100%
– Starting # of Games 100% Complete: 120
– Ending # of Games 100% Complete: 120
This number stayed the same this month as I didn’t finish anything. I’m guessing that this will jump up though and I should reach 150 by the end of the year. I know that’s like 30 games away but I’m optimistic. With all of the Telltale games that I play along with some other simple games that don’t require much I don’t see why I can’t reach this number.
Have an overall completion rating of 75%
– Starting Completion Rate: 53.96%
– Ending Completion Rate: 53.57%
Remember how I said I played a bunch of new games this month? Yeah, that also means that my completion rating took a major hit as it dropped. This was expected to happen, especially this month, and 75% is totally unreachable this year. If I can get this number up to 55% by the end of the year I’ll be happy.
Complete 10 RANDOM games featured in my I Never Finished…Because…blog
– Starting Number of Games Played from I Never Finished…Because: 0
– Ending Number of Games Played from I Never Finished…Because: 0
This number is still at 0, but there is a catch, I actually did start playing one of my I Never Finished…Because games again and it was Sideway: New York. I know, I couldn’t believe it myself, but with my PS4 being occupied at times as I edit video’s I need something to do and turning on my PS3 and playing an older game seemed like the perfect idea. Maybe by next month I’ll have the game completed.
Play and complete 20 RANDOM games in my backlog.
– Starting Number of completed games in my backlog: 5
– Ending Number of completed games in my backlog: 5
The only game I played in my backlog this month was Fallout 4. There was no way that this was going to get completed with the amount of other games that I played so this number stays the same. If I can at least hit 10 games by the end of the year I’ll be happy because at least it’s 10 games that are out of my growing backlog.
Only pre-order 5 new games and save the rest for Black Friday and holiday sales. – FAILED!
– Starting Number of Pre-Orders: 6
– Ending Number of Pre-Orders: 8
Yep, this number ticked up again this month as PlayStation is really getting me with the pre-orders because of discounts. I picked up Batman: The Enemy Within at a discounted price on pre-order and The Last Day of June. Right now I have no idea how many more games I’ll be pre-ordering, but I want to try to keep it under 15 at least.
And that was my month. Not that exciting at all and it makes me feel like too much of an adult at times. Anyway, depending on how things at work are in September, there might be some changes coming which are going to suck for me, I might have more time to game. I won’t have the money to game, which might help with the whole pre-order thing but at least it’ll help me clear up my backlog. I’ll let you know how things go next month.
