This Week in Trophies 12-25-2016 – 12-31-2016

I want to start off by saying that I hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Year! In typical fashion I spent the last hours of 2016 trying to get in as much gaming time as possible and get those last few trophies that might help me out with my goals. I’ll let you know how I did with those tomorrow, but after that I spent some time with a buddy of mine playing some Borderlands which is always fun. I tried to get a lot of gaming in this week and I think I did pretty good so here’s a breakdown of how my week went.

Overwatch: Origins Edition – 13%

I had no intention of getting this game, but I got it as a gift and was extremely happy because one of my favorite Mass Effect 3 players was playing this game and I knew it would be awesome to team up with him. It was and I’m having a great time playing. We could always use some extra players though so if you have Overwatch and want to join leave me a comment in the comments section and we can set up a gaming session.

Stardew Valley – 7%

I finally got some trophies for this little game that I am loving so much. The trophies are well deserved and are no easy feat at all. It doesn’t matter because I just adore this game. It’s fun and there’s so much to do and I can’t stop playing. While it’s never a bad thing when you can’t stop playing a game, when you have a backlog as huge as mine it kinda sucks. Backlog be dammed though because I’m going to continue playing.

RISK URBAN ASSAULT – 45%

I’m in the mood of “what the hell was I thinking” while I play this game now. I’m struggling to play the online portion which is filled with people dropping out of the game when they’re losing and then trying to actually find a game while trying to finish up with some of the trophies for this game. It’s one of those games I’m going to struggle with but eventually get I hope.

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – 40%

All I’m willing to say about this game is that I played the first two episodes this week and you’ll have to wait a few weeks for my full review on each episode. Yes I know, but I’m behind once again on my reviews and have a ton of them coming out in the upcoming weeks. It’ll be worth the wait though!

Mafia III – 17%

When I know that I want to play a game, I try to stay away from other reviews and stuff which I know is weird because I expect you to read my reviews when the game comes out, but I feel like if I don’t I won’t be objective about the game. Anyway I am absolutely hating this game. I think that the quests are repetitive, you can’t do what you want when you want, and I’m tired of it playing out like a movie. Not to mention that Lincoln is one of the most unproportioned characters I’ve ever come across. The man is huge, clunky to move around, and just overall weird to maneuver throughout the game.

That was it for this week. A nice way to end out the year and start a new year fresh. While you’ll see how I did on my goals for last year, I’ll also let you know the new goals I have in store for this year. As for this week though I plan on continuing to play Overwatch, Mafia III (grudgingly), Stardew Valley, RISK URBAN ASSAULT, and I actually have enough room on my PS4 to add a new game which might happen. I’ll let you know how everything went next week.

This Week in Trophies 12-18-2016 – 12-24-2016

Busy busy busy week since today is Christmas. Lots of last minute shopping, lots of work that had to be done, another Christmas party to go to (apparently one wasn’t enough), and lots of cooking and baking to do. Between all that I did get in some time to game though! Which was awesome and why you’re here waiting for me to tell you about my trophies for the week, so keep reading to see them all.

Batman – 100%

I dragged my feet a little when it came to this game, but I finally finished the last episode. I can’t tell you about it here, so you’ll have to wait a couple of weeks for my full review to see what I thought about the game as a whole.

Battleship – 100%

I also got the final trophies that I needed for this game this week to clear it up and finish it before the end of the year. Always nice to finish a couple of games before the end of the year to feel like I actually made some progress. Anyway, you’ll have to wait for my full review to see what I thought about the game as a whole.

Stardew Valley – 0%

No trophies for this game yet, total sad face, but I’m having a blast playing. I like the farming aspect of it, I like the mining aspect of it, I love the whole town aspect of it. So far you can probably tell that I’m really loving this game even though it seems I can’t get any of the trophies for the life of me. No matter though, I’m having a blast playing.

Mafia III – 12%

I decided to start this game this week since it was one that I picked up on sale for the holidays. Gotta love those holiday sales. So far I’m finding it not so great as I struggle to play it. Lincoln is clunky and his movements are weird. I think they made him physically too big if that makes any sense and it makes it awkward to move him around. I’m having a hard time with the driving stuff too as well as the game constantly telling me what to do instead of letting me free roam.

RISK: Urban Assault – 10%

Since I was never allowed to play Risk as a child, apparently I would get a hankering for world domination, this was a completely new experience for me. I’m not quite sure if I like it yet, but I’m going to keep playing to see how things turn out. Right now I’m trying to just play the game and learn the ins and outs and then I’ll start going towards getting the trophies.

That was it for this week. As you can tell, I didn’t even get the chance to play the new season of The Walking Dead. To be honest I’m not that disappointed though, but I should be able to get to it this week sometime. I think overall it was a pretty good week and next week should hopefully be the same. I plan on continuing to play Stardew Valley, RISK: Urban Assault, Mafia III, and I’ll most likely start Overwatch this week after I wipe my system clean of games that I’m no longer playing. I hope that everyone reading has a happy and safe holiday and I’ll let you know how my gaming week went next week!
