This Week in Trophies 02-28-2016 – 03-05-2016

After last week’s surge of trophies, I thought this week would pretty much be the same, but damn was I completely wrong. Life mostly got in the way this week and I wasn’t able to get that much done, but I was able to get a new platinum trophy so that has to count for something. Anyway, here’s a breakdown of my trophies for the week.

Taco Master – 100%

That’s right, platinum trophy # 52 came this week from Taco Master for the PS Vita. It was the first PS Vita game that I played in a while and over the past week I got some pretty good use out of that system. I’ll have my full review of the game up in a few weeks to let you know what I thought of it.

Mad Max – 28%

I am still slowly making my way through this game. Most of this is my fault because I really just can’t get into the game and it’s like I’m forcing myself to play. I just arrived in Pink Eye’s territory and I’m doing a few random missions here and there, but to me this game has just been one big scavenger hunt without any real substance. I’m still waiting for that WOW factor in the story.

Sparkle Unleashed – 52%

I finished the main quest for the first time on Normal and am now making my way through Hard difficulty before going on to Nightmare difficulty and then eventually going through the survival mode. Compared to the other Sparkle game that I played, I think that 10tons changed a little too much this time around and even though it’s a Sparkle game, it really isn’t the same. When I finish the game I’ll let you know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

Sparkle Unleashed

Unravel – 73%

As frustrating as it is at times to go back and get through a level without dying, I’m still having a good time playing this game. I enjoy the different environments, I enjoy the overall story and message the game is delivering, and I enjoy playing as little Yarny.

Unravel

So there you have it, all of my trophies for this week. Certinally nothing to brag about, but at least I did complete a game and get the platinum trophy doing so. That has to count for something. Hopefully life is less crazy this week and I can get back to some major gaming during my free time, but you never know. The only thing I would really like to accomplish this week is finishing up Unravel and getting the platinum trophy for it. Other than that I’m going to just go with the flow. I’ll let you know how things turned out next week.

This Week in Trophies 02-21-2016 – 02-27-2016

This was definitely one of my better trophy weeks for the month. I don’t really know where I found the time to play, but I did somehow and it paid off. As the final full week of the month, I made some much needed progress on a bunch of games. So, here’s a breakdown of the trophies I got this week.

Unravel – 70%

I thought it was going to be a lot harder to actually go back and redo all of the levels, but it turned out to be not so hard. Not dying on each level takes a little work, but once you get into the groove of that level it becomes pretty simple. Even though I didn’t get the platinum for this game this week, it won’t be long before I actually do.

Star Wars Battlefront – 28%

I’m still having a really fun time playing this game. I think that one trophy did glitch on me though which sucks because multiple times I won on Blast and had the most kills, but no trophy. This is a little frustrating, but I’ll give it a couple of more tries just to see. Other than that I’m enjoying both the multiplayer and mission sides of the game. I’m also still looking for some people to play with so if anyone wants to join me just leave a comment in the comments section.

Taco Master – 69%

I bought this game as an impulse buy this week because it was on sale for $1.49. There’s a silly little story that goes along with it but it’s mostly a time management game. I like those types of games and I’m having a good time playing it while I have some TV on in the background. I should actually be getting the platinum trophy for this game pretty soon and I’m looking forward to it.

Mad Max – 26%

I was able to pick back up where I left off with this game this week and even got a couple of trophies doing so. I’m still doing way too much free roaming to say if I actually like the story yet or not, but I’m not giving up on this game yet and will continue to play when I have a chance to.

Mad Max Mad MaxMad Max

The Walking Dead: Michonne – 33%

I should call this another impulse buy, but unfortunately it wasn’t. I was actually looking forward to this game, but was disappointed. I’ll have my full review of the first episode up soon so you can read all about my latest disappointment with Telltale. If you’re thinking about getting this game I would say hold off for a sale, based on the first episode I didn’t find it worth the $14.99

The Four Kings Casino and Slots – 14%

I don’t know why I downloaded this game, well I do, because no matter how hard I try not to be I’m super competitive and I don’t like being told that I can’t do something. Anyway, this game for me is one of those anything you can do I can do better type things. I’m going to say that it’s ok for this one since it was free, but I’m seriously regretting it now that I actually have to get all these trophies and put some extra time into this game. It was my own fault so I’ll suffer through it.

And that was it this week for me. A much better week this time around with a total of…drum roll please…43 trophies. A nice way to end a rather lack luster month. Now for next week…I have no idea what’s going to happen because my schedule has changed once more. Of course it did once I found my groove, but I’ll roll with the punches and see how things go. I do want to try to get some PS3 time in though since it seems like I haven’t turned on that system for a while now. I’ll let you know next week how things went.

This Week in Trophies 02-07-02-13-2016

I went a little crazy with the games this week. I jumped from game to game which is seriously unlike me, but the two days that I had to actually game just made my mind go crazy and I just wanted to play anything and everything. I’m hoping that this pattern doesn’t continue because I’ll never get anything done goal wise, but you never know. Anyway, here’s all of my trophies for the week.

Mad Max – 21%

I’m trying really really hard to get into the story of this game, but I think part of the problem is that I spend most of my time playing just wandering around collecting scrap and trying to clear each and every area in the game to lower the threat rating in each area. I’m still playing this game when I have more than a few hours to spare since you need it when it comes to this game, but the trophies are coming in slowly.

Mad Max

Sparkle Unleashed – 28%

I continued to play this sporadically this week when I had a few extra minutes here and there. I’m still not really sure what to think about this game yet. Like the other Sparkle games, it has a small story that goes with it, but I’m not sure if I’m liking the difference in gameplay just yet. I’ll continue to play the whole way through with an open mind before making my final decision.

Firewatch – 100%

I was extremely excited about this game when I first seen it at E3 so I grabbed it day one. I’m not going to say anything about it here, so you’ll have to wait for my review, which is coming up, to see what I actually thought about the game as a whole.

Star Wars Battlefront – 7%

So, I’m not even a Star Wars fan…or a multiplayer fan, but there was just something about this game that I had to have it. I am absolutely loving this game. There isn’t really a section of this game so far that I’m not liking. I know I probably won’t get the platinum for this game, but it’s not going to stop me from trying.

Star Wars Battlefront Star Wars BattlefrontStar Wars Battlefront Star Wars Battlefront

Unravel – 2%

Another game that I first took notice of at E3 and had to have day one. Even though I only got through two levels, I have to say that this game is absolutely beautiful. Not only graphic wise but story wise as well. I am loving this game along with its tough puzzles and super cute main character. I can’t wait to continue playing.

Unravel Unravel

And that was it for my random week of games and random trophies. I know the whole thing was crazy, but it is what it is. For the first time in weeks…maybe months, I really don’t have a plan when it comes to what games I’m playing. This week I’m just going to see how things go and go from there. I’ll let you know how things go next week.

This Week in Trophies 01-31-2016 – 02-06-2016

While I did get some trophies this week, believe me it was nothing spectacular, I did have something pretty awesome happen to me. Those of you who read this blog and also follow me on Twitter probably already seen it, but for those of you who didn’t, take a look:

God of War Contest

Pretty cool huh? While this kind of makes up for a less than exciting trophy week, I also am hating that I’ve been super busy with almost no time to game. Anyway, here are my trophies for the week.

Mad Max – 20%

I spent some time wandering around in Mad Max this week, which by the way has a ton of things to do. I mean the amount of time you spend looking for scrap is just crazy and deters you from actually playing the story which if you think about it, is less than mediocre. Anyway, I started the game and I want to finish it to the 100% so I’m going to keep going even if I couldn’t care less about the main story. I’m hoping something will come up making me enjoy the story at some point.

Mad Max Mad MaxMad Max

Sparkle Unleashed – 14%

I started this game this week mostly because on those days when I don’t have time to game, I HAVE TO GAME (my brain demands that I do) and since I don’t have a whole lot of time, this does it for me. This game is a complete 180 change from Sparkle 2 and I’m not really sure if I like the new style yet. I’ll have a better feel for things when I complete my first playthrough.

Lemmings Touch – 10%

I picked up this game this week for free thanks to PS+ and I figured since I haven’t used my vita for months, I would give it a try. I also used to play the original Lemmings on my NES and it was one of my favorites. I used to rent it from the local mom and pop video rental store, before Blockbuster came around and destroyed them, and played for hours. I have to admit though that I’m still getting used to the Vita version, mostly because the controls are sketchy at best and most of the time inaccurate. I’ll continue to play this game in my spare time.

So what’s in store for this week? Work…work…and more work. I’ve been on this pattern of get up, work, sleep, rinse and repeat for a couple of weeks now and I’m seeing a couple of more weeks of this in the future. So what does this mean for gaming? It means a hell of a lot less which makes me cranky, but I will try to get some Mad Max in and continue to try and finish Tearaway Unfolded. I’ll probably continue to play Sparkle Unleashed for those times when I can squeeze in 30 minutes or so of free time in my work day and I’ll try to get some Lemmings Touch in during some TV time. Other than that everything else is just going to have to wait. I’ll let you know if I found some kind of balance next week.

This Week in Trophies 01-24-2016 – 01-30-2016

Kind of a slow trophy week for me, but believe me it was not from a lack of trying. I’m at the point with some games where the trophies will be coming slow and less frequent and then other games, the trophies are just…I don’t know, they feel like they’ll never come. I’ll still work my way through as I try to get those coveted platinum trophies, but here’s how I did this week.

Mad Max – 14%

Unlike Until Dawn, I actually started this game this week. While I’ve put a lot of hours into it, I’m not really sure what to think about this game yet. It’s a little repetitive since you’ll be doing the same thing over and over again but I find myself unable to stop playing when I start. I do already have one major complaint and it’s the super small text in the game that makes me sit literally inches away from the TV when I play just to be able to see.

Tearaway Unfolded – 51%

I’m at the point in this game where I finished the story and “delivered my message”, but now I’m going back and trying to get each and every single level at 100%. I did pick up a couple of extra trophies this week which was surprising, but I’m totally not complaining. To get the full 100% I know this game is going to take me at least another two weeks since I’m only working on one extra level a day which is taking up way more time then I want it to.

Sadly when it comes to trophies, that was it. Only 12 trophies for the last full week of the month. Come back tomorrow and I’ll give you a breakdown of how my goals for the year are coming along. As for the upcoming week, this is what I have planned. Continue working on the Tearaway Unfolded levels to get the 100% in each of them and get the platinum trophy, continue playing Mad Max, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and start Sparkle Unleashed since it’s just sitting on my PS4 and I want to be able to play it and delete it. I’ll let you know about my progress next week.
