This Week in Trophies 06-25-2017 – 07-01-2017

This was a good week for gaming. At least I feel like it was a good week for gaming. My trophy breakdown kind of reflects it, but I’m also at one of those points where I play a lot, but I’m not really close to getting any trophies because they require an insane amount of work to actually get them and I’m working on it. Makes sense right? Anyway, here’s a breakdown of how my week went.

Gems of War – 90%

I’m almost finished with the “main” trophy list and once I do I’ll have a review for the game as a whole, but I feel that it’s really not worth it to write a blog for each and every update because nothing about the main game actually changes that dramatically. There basically just updates that tack on another three trophies. Anyway, I’ll keep playing this as I’m now invested in Guild Wars and I finally have my Guild up to 30 active members. Go Guild!

Gems of War

Dungeon Defenders II – 52%

Not like the first Dungeon Defenders at all, it’s still an ok game if I could actually get it to work on the first try. It takes me about 10-15 minutes to log in and when I do I am stuck at one of the levels. Completely stuck and no matter what I do I cannot beat this one damn level. I played for a few hours this past week, but became extremely frustrated and eventually stopped. I’ll try this game again during the week to see if I can advance any.

Killing Floor 2 – 22%

Although this game is basically do this, rinse and repeat, I’m having a pretty good time when I play. It’s not one of those games that I could play for hours upon hours, but it’s a nice game to play when I’m limited on time. Once you get the hang of the game and how the weapons and classes operate it’s really not that bad. It’s not that great either, but you know how it is.

Rise of the Tomb Raider – 15%

I finished the Baba Yaga DLC this week, just the main story not the rest of the stuff that comes with it, and will continue to play although it’s kind of lost it’s interest for me. I don’t really know the direction in which the game is going and although the story line is an easy one to follow, I have no idea what I’m doing half the time. I thought the Baba Yaga DLC was a pretty decent DLC as it told the tale of an old Slavic folklore, but if I had to pay for it I would have been disappointed at the length.

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – 6%

I started this game yesterday after asking for a suggestion on twitter and getting a response from @aaronmorrsi1995. This isn’t my first time playing Diablo III since I played on the PS3 and even have the platinum. This time around is different though as it has a bunch of new stuff added in and so far I’m enjoying playing an old favorite of mine.

That was it for this week. Not a bad week by far and at least I got to start a new game. Now for the upcoming week, I have some extra time off for work. Thank you random holidays, which means I’ll also have more time to game. This is never a bad thing. I plan on continuing to play the games that I’ve been playing, Gems of War, Killing Floor 2, Dungeon Defenders II, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. Even though I wanted to play a new game last week though and I did, I still have that need to play something else now that all of my games have finally been added into my PS4. I’m hitting the 2TB mark with everything so I’m thinking the 8TB external drive was a good thing. Will I start something new? You’ll have to come back next week to find out.


This Week in Trophies 06-18-2017 – 06-24-2017

With work being easy as pie this week and my web design client being taken care of about mid week after the disaster last week, this left me the perfect opportunity to game as much as possible this week and I totally did. I felt like I played more games this week than I have in a while and it actually felt good. Without even knowing it I hit my milestone 7,500th trophy this week which I really still can’t believe. I didn’t stop there and powered on though so keep reading to see how I did this week.

Abzu – 100%

I finally finished this game this week! One more game that was removed in my ever growing backlog. As always though, I’ll be giving you my full review of this game so come back Wednesday to hear about my experience with the game and what I thought about it.


Killing Floor 2 – 18%

So the servers for this game absolutely suck and it seems I can never get into a game, but when I do I usually spend anywhere from 30 minutes to about an hour and a half playing this game. It’s not a bad game, but it’s not a great game either. I do enjoy just sitting there and playing without having to actually think and that’s one of the things that draws me to this game.

Gems of War – 88%

With the new patch for this game, came new trophies and I was like Ugh. I’ve been playing this game daily because of the guild wars, but have now played even more as I try to finish up this ever growing trophy list which just seems impossible. The good news is that I did finish all of the new patched in trophies, which were just a bunch of crap really since they were just add-on’s to previous trophies.

Rise of the Tomb Raider – 14%

I’ve been slowly making my way through this game for the past few weeks, really wishing that I had played Diablo III instead, but I’m making some progress. Or at least I think I’m making progress. With this game I really have no idea. Anyway, when I do play I enjoy the time that I play, but I’m still not sure about this game. Am I close to the end, am I not close to the end? I have no idea as I’ve now been sucked into some DLC stuff. Anyway, I’ll keep powering through to see how it goes.

Dungeon Defenders II – 23%

I downloaded and started this game this week because it was free and I really loved the original Dungeon Defenders. I spent hours upon hours playing the original with some former friends and I thought that this game would breathe some new life and give me some new memories, but so far I’m not that into it. I’ll keep playing to finish up the trophies and stuff, but it just isn’t as good as the original which I do miss playing because someone had to shut off the servers.

And that was it for this week. A pretty productive week, and I kind of plan on next week being the same thing. I plan on continuing my Rise of the Tomb Raider playthrough, get some Killing Floor 2 in when I can, and play some more Dungeon Defenders II to finish the game up. It is the end of the month so I am a little weary about starting a new game, but you never know because when I get that itch of wanting to start something new, it just can’t be stopped. I’ll let you know how things turn out next week.


This Week in Trophies 06-11-2017 – 06-17-2017

I’m going to be honest and say that this week basically just sucked when it came to trophies. I really had absolutely no time to play because of real world problems. Not only do I work one of those super adult desk job type jobs which makes me think every once in a while, when did I get so old, but I also do some freelance Web Design and Development. While I thought I would have a nice week of playing video games when I was done with my job, turns out the freelance stuff wasn’t so easy this time around as one of the sites I manage had the shit hit the fan and it was up to me to clean it up. Anyway, I did manage to get some gaming in and here’s what I was able to get.

Abzu – 50%

I finished up the main story to this game and am now going back to get the trophies that I missed. I have to say that I really enjoyed this underwater Journey game and by the end felt a deep connection to the game that I didn’t think I would feel. I’ll get into that more once I eventually finish it and write the review, but for now that’s all you’re getting.


Rise of the Tomb Raider – 12%

I never knew it would take this much time to play a Tomb Raider game. Time was not on my side this week and I was barely able to play this game because of my lack of time. I’m kind of enjoying my time playing, but the jury is still out on this game and I think I’m towards the end so I don’t know what to think.

Rise of the Tomb Raider Rise of the Tomb Raider

Killing Floor 2 – 2%

Why did I start this game this week? Two reasons, one because it was recommended to me and two because I was having such a frustrating day that I needed something that was mindless and fun in order to relax. Mission accomplished on both ends. While I can’t see myself getting lost in this game, I can see myself going back every once in a while to have some mindless fun.

Killing Floor 2 Killing Floor 2

And that was it for this week. I’m thinking that this upcoming week is going to be more of the same because I still have some Web Site stuff to figure out and my clients are a pain in the ass. Pro-tip from a seasoned Web Designer, never ever do stuff for so-called “friends.” It doesn’t work out. EVER. And if something goes wrong you’re always to blame even if you aren’t. Anyway, back to the gaming stuff. I’m hoping I can finish Abzu this week while continuing to play Rise of the Tomb Raider and some Killing Floor 2 when I have the chance. Chances are that I won’t be starting anything new any time soon, but you never know. I’ll let you know how my week turns out next week.
