This Week in Trophies 06-10-2018 – 06-16-2018

This was an interesting week, but then again, aren’t they all? Anyway, I was able to accomplish one of my goals, which was to complete King Oddball, but I’m still working on Detroit: Become Human because playing through this game again is really taking a long time. Mostly because of my work schedule and partly because I’m trying to play a bunch of other games with it. Anyway, onto my trophies for the week.

Fallout Shelter – 9%

So I kind of called it last week when I said that this game would be released the night of the Bethesda conference and I was right. Since then I’ve been playing this game like crazy, and I didn’t really think that I would spend so much time playing, but I’m having a good time playing so at least that’s a good thing.

King Oddball – 100%

This was one of my goals this week and I’m just glad I was able to accomplish it. I won’t say much about this game right now so you’ll have to wait until Wednesday to see my full review of the game.

King Oddball

Unravel TWO – 10%

I played this game on Sunday and that was basically the last time I played this game. It’s not from lack of not wanting to play it because I do and I love the story that it’s telling, it’s just from the lack of time. I will try to find some more time this week to play as my schedule should return to something of a normal schedule for me.

Unravel TWOUnravel TWOUnravel TWOUnravel TWO

And there you have it, a total of 10 trophies for this week. Not as impressive as the past few weeks, but at least it’s something. My plan for this week is to continue to work on Detroit: Become Human because I really want that platinum trophy now, try to get in some playtime with Unravel Two, and continue to play Fallout Shelter. I don’t think I’ll play anything new, but you never know and I’ll let you know how things turn out next week.

This Week in Trophies 06-03-2018 – 06-09-2018

This was a pretty interesting week in trophies for me, I got a bunch of Detroit: Become Human trophies, but still didn’t get the platinum, I also started a new game which I had no intention of doing, but it couldn’t be helped, and I’m one step closer to finishing King Oddball. That was with a bunch of life stuff going on so I’m pretty proud of myself. Check out which trophies I was actually able to get down below.

Detroit: Become Human – 79%

I’m so close to the platinum trophy for this game that I can taste it. I have to do two more playthroughs of this game and get them right before I can get it, but I’m up for the task and I’ll work on doing that this week. Other that, I went back and cleaned up a bunch of trophies this week and am not really that upset that I’ll have to do two more playthroughs since I don’t feel like it will be a hassel.

King Oddball – 71%

Another game that I’m so close to finishing that I can taste it. I am one trophy away from having 100% complete on this game and at this point I’m pretty dedicated to getting it, so I expect to get it within the next week. The only thing I’m working on is the diamond levels, which are hard but I only have a handful left so this shouldn’t be a problem.

King OddballKing Oddball

Unravel TWO – 4%

This was probably the best thing to come out of E3 so far and the best part was that after they announced it, it was available! Amazing. I loved the first Unravel, you can read my full review of that game here, and I’m loving the second game as well. I look forward to playing more of this game this week and getting into the whole story that unfolds behind the story of Yarny.

Unravel TWOUnravel TWOUnravel TWO

And there you have it a total of 16 trophies for the week. Not a bad haul for me for one week. Next week now will be touch and go with trophies because while I’ll be getting Unravel TWO trophies and trophies for a game that I think might be coming out tonight, Fallout Shelter, I’ll also try to finish up Detroit: Become Human and King Oddball. If I could finish these two games up and get the 100% complete and platinum, then next week’s trophies will be good even if there aren’t many. I’ll let you know how things turned out for me next week.

These Past Two Weeks in Trophies 05-20-2018 – 06-02-2018

These past two weeks if anything have been super hectic that I’m even surprised I was able to play anything and even get a decent amount of trophies. There was work stuff, a vacation to MegaCon, an unplanned hospital visit, some more work stuff, and just regular life. Anyway, I was able to game so here’s a look at what I’ve been up to trophy wise.

Dead Island – Definitive Edition – 53%

I jumped back into this game this past week to play with my buddy @tjarvinen86 and the first thing that happened when I turned on the game was that I got a trophy. That was some pretty exciting stuff because no one expects a trophy for just turning on a game. Anyway, I’m having a great time jumping back into this game and just having fun which is what this game should be about since you really can’t take this game seriously.

Dead Island - Definitive Edition

Detroit: Become Human – 61%

So I not only started this game this past week, but I also finished it. I have to say that while it started off slow and a little on the boring side, things picked up at the end and I’m excited to go back and clean up some trophies before starting a new playthrough and hopefully getting the platinum for this game.

God of War – 70%

So I made some progress on this game the week of MegaCon, before I went to the actual convention, but I’m still having a really hard time with the collectibles because they’re just a pain in the ass. I’m missing a raven somewhere and even though I’m following a guide, I still feel pretty lost and I feel like I have no idea what I’m doing. I want to be able to finish this game and just be done with it, but I’m kind of finding it hard to get back into it at the moment.

God of WarGod of WarGod of War

King Oddball – 61%

One more trophy for this game as I slowly make my way through it. This happened before MegaCon and I haven’t touched the game since. It’s one of those games that’s impossible to play all at once so I’m really not in a rush to finish it as long as I eventually finish it.

King Oddball

And there you have it, two weeks 35 trophies, a big improvement from my previous counts even if it is for two weeks. I’m pretty happy with my progress and have a good outlook on things even though this week is going to be a little hectic with work and trying to finish up telling you guys about all the awesome stuff that happened at MegaCon this year. Anyway, when I do get a chance to game, I’ll probably play a little King Oddball, but my main focus will be to get the Detroit: Become Human platinum trophy before getting back into God of War and finding the million collectibles that I’m still missing.

This Week in Trophies 05-13-2018 – 05-19-2018

So this week was a fun one, and I write that in the most sarcastic way possible. There was another meeting with my fantastic boss, another sarcastic note, had a buddy of mine get so tired of the way things are going at work that he just up and quit, and basically had yet another shit week. As much as you’re probably tired of hearing about this I’m tired of writing about it, so on with my little list of trophies.

God of War – 57%

So I busted my ass this week trying to get trophies for this game, but it seems like they randomly come and require a hell of a lot of grinding to find collectibles and other things. I’m getting a little burnt out on finding all of these collectibles, but I really want the platinum for this game. I have to say though as much as I liked the game itself, this running around thing is kind of ruining the game itself for me. That’s not a good thing.

God of WarGod of WarGod of WarGod of WarGod of WarGod of War

King Oddball – 57%

I played this game again this week, but like always spent more time then I really wanted to on it. I think I just have to take a day maybe a day and half to finish it completely and just be done with the whole thing so that I stop playing because I really don’t want to play as much as I do when there are a bunch of other games sitting there waiting to be played.

King Oddball

And there you have it, another 7 trophies for this week to add to my pathetic number of trophies as of late. This upcoming week is going to be a tough one because I take a little break from gaming and go on vacation! Going on vacation means no time for gaming, but in the few days that I do have to game I’ll be trying to finish up King Oddball and God of War. Like I said last week, the Far Cry 5 platinum is going to have to wait until my buddy, @tjarvinen86, follow him on Twitter because he’s cool, gets the game and I have someone to do the co-op missions with along with the multiplayer stuff with. Anyway, just an FYI, this blog will be on hold next week since I’ll be on vacation and the next time I post about trophies will be the following week. Hopefully I can actually get stuff done.

This Week in Trophies 05-06-2018 – 05-12-2018

Another week, another crap week for trophies. I’m seriously not happy with where I’m at with trophies lately and it’s just because there is a hell of a lot going on. Let’s see my normal week in review was another shitty week at work, where it’s becoming a common thing and I try to just swallow all of my stress and smile acting like everything is completely normal. Then there was an issue with my dog this week, which why not just add that to the pile right? Anyway, that’s a very brief look at my real life and here’s a look at my trophy life.

God of War- 35%

Shit, these collectibles and completing every single area of this map is just killing me. I mean seriously there are so many collectibles and places that you have to 100%. It’s crazy. I mean just crazy. I have no idea where to start half the time when I start the game and usually I have no idea where I left off. At this point it’s one big cluster fuck of trying to find random shit.

God of War

King Oddball – 52%

So when I was young and carefree, mostly because I was unemployed, I had these games that I would call “starter games” they would start my gaming time which usually lasted anywhere between 8-10 hours a day. Now I would play these games for maybe an hour at the most before going to the next game, probably something better, before ending my gaming time with a huge AAA game. Anyway, I still try to do that now even though I don’t have 8-10 hours to game and I usually get stuck playing these little games and not moving onto anything else. This is where King Oddball came in this week. It’s not a bad game, the graphics are a little off, and it’s not a great game either. It’s just a starter game that turned into more than that this week.

King OddballKing OddballKing OddballKing OddballKing OddballKing Oddball

So that was it. Only 7 trophies this week. A pretty crappy trophy week and I don’t expect it to be any better this upcoming week. I am going to try and finish King Oddball as well as God of War. I might try to get some random trophies in Far Cry 5, but I think I’ll wait to do that until a new buddy of mine gets the game and then we can grind out some trophies. I’ll let you know how things turn out next week.

This Week in Trophies 04-29-2018 – 05-05-2018

This was another sad week for trophies. I remember when I used to get so excited writing this blog because I would have 50+ trophies to brag about, now it’s like I’m lucky if I make it to 20 which is extremely rare these past few weeks / months. Anyway, this is what my week in the gaming world looked like.

Gems of War – 83%

I really don’t mind the updates for this game, especially with the improvements that it makes upon the game, but seriously what the hell with all of the trophies it has to add! I mean, I try to play this game to keep up with my Guild, which is severely lacking members, but it just seems never ending and it wants you to devote your entire life to it. If you play this game and are looking for a Guild, please let me know. One of these days I’m going to call it quits with this game, just not any time soon.

Gems of War

God of War – 32%

So I know how I’ve said this game is great and all, and it is, but I just thought the end, which I think was the end because after I finished the last mission the credits rolled, was just eh. Compared to the game as a whole, which was epic, it just felt like the ending fell really flat. I hate saying that because the game was amazing and such an improvement, but I don’t know about the ending. I’m going to have to think about it as I go back to get some more trophies.

God of WarGod of WarGod of WarGod of War

King Oddball – 23%

This game was free, starting this week and the rest of the month, and even though I vowed not to start a new game until I finished God of War or Far Cry 5, I couldn’t resist playing this game. I think it’s because I’ve played Baseball Riot and Tennis in the Face and I wanted to play this game because it’s basically the same thing. The only thing I can say about this game right now is that the graphics are really bad. They’re like blurry, and I don’t know if that was supposed to be like that or if it just is for some reason.

King OddballKing OddballKing OddballKing OddballKing Oddball

That was it for this week, a lousy 10 trophies. This week my plan is to try and get the platinum for both God of War and Far Cry 5. I know it’s a hefty goal, but I think if I set my mind to it that I can do it, plus I have some free time this week. Not a lot, but some. I still have a bunch of prep for MegaCon which is less than 20 days away! So there’s that…and there’s work, which I hate, but I’ll let you know how things go next week.

This Week in Trophies 04-22-2018 – 04-28-2018

This week wasn’t a bad week when it came to trophies. I was able to game a decent amount of them even though I had a bunch of things going on with work. I guess the good news is that I didn’t get fired like I thought I was, but there is also an underlying bad news in there as well because now I just hate my job. The feeling is horrible and It’s gotten to the point where I spend a lot of time job searching and a lot of time thinking of reasons to call in sick. Anyway, here’s a breakdown of my trophies for the week.

Far Cry 5 – 80%

I finally finished this game and that was a pretty big accomplishment. The ending just blew my mind and I was left thinking about it for a while. I’m not even sure I picked the right ending at this point. Anyway, I enjoyed the story as a whole and now just have to go back and finish up some random things. I also have to play the multiplayer which I hate. I’m also looking for a co-op partner so if you’re looking for a co-op partner let me know down in the comments section below and we can set up a gaming session.

Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5

God of War – 20%

I’m not really concentrating on the trophies for this game and I’m enjoying it a lot. I love the story, I love the new combat, I just love everything about this game. It’s truly an amazing experience that breathe’s new life into a series that was going stale. I’m happy right now to just play through the whole story and finish up the trophies at a later time.

God of WarGod of WarGod of WarGod of WarGod of WarGod of WarGod of WarGod of WarGod of War

Q*bert: Rebooted – 19%

I don’t know if I play this game to try and relax a little or just get annoyed. It’s a mixture of both. Kind of like playing Sound Shapes on death mode. It’s frustrating but also relaxing at the same time if that makes sense.

Q*bert: Rebooted

That was it for this week, a total of 15 trophies. Not bad, not good either, but it’s decent. Next week kind of looks like it will be more of the same but I’m hoping to get the platinum in Far Cry 5 while I continue to play some God of War. I’ll let you know how everything turns out next week.

This Week in Trophies 04-15-2018 – 04-21-2018

This past week was another hectic one as I tried to start my week off right, but had to bring my dad back to the hospital for an pneumonia that was caught early. About five hours later the hospital fiasco was over and I was dead tired and didn’t even touch my game. The rest of the week as normal as it could possible get and even though I gamed a little bit, I just didn’t game all that much. Hopefully this week will change, but I’m not so sure. Then there was my job which was just total bullshit this week and may result in me not having a job come Monday. Before I get into my trophies this is how it went, I did my normal job at work, got yelled at for it and then got a nasty email from the boss to stress his point again. Getting pissed off myself, I wrote a pretty nasty email back in response and I haven’t been at work to see if the email saga has continued. Anyway, I’m at the point of being tired with my job and the drama that goes with it and it’s time to talk about trophies.

Far Cry 5 – 64%

I’m just about done with this game and I’ve enjoyed my time playing it. I’ll still have to go back and do a trophy cleanup which shouldn’t be that hard, at least I hope not, but I’m eager to see how this game ends. It’s been one hell of a journey and right now I think I’m safe to say that this was much better than Far Cry 4 and Far Cry Primal and right up there with Far Cry 3. We’ll see though because it might have a crap ending that ruins the whole game.

Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5

God of War – 7%

Here is something that you almost never hear me say. I am loving this game so much that I don’t even care about the trophies right now. WHAT??? I know right? Anyway, this is most definitely the best God of War game this series has seen in a long time and it has really revitalized this series and brought it into a new age. This game has so many improvements, not only visually, but also mechanically that it’s like a new game all together. It’s just amazing and I can’t wait to continue my journey.

God of WarGod of WarGod of WarGod of WarGod of War

So a total of 12 trophies for the week, which is kid of weak, but it’s been one of those weeks. How will this upcoming week go? I really have no idea. All I know is that if I don’t have a job come Monday then my trophy count for the week should spike and if I do still have a job it’ll probably be around the same figure, but at least I’ll have a job. Anyway, I’ll let you know how things work out next week.

This Couple of Weeks in Trophies 04-01-2018 – 04-14-2018

This month did not start off right for me at all and it completely sucks. Last Thursday my dad was rushed to the ER and I found out that he had two blood cloths in his lungs that had to be taken care of ASAP. This meant an emergency Cath lab procedure in the middle of the night along with a pretty long stay in the ICU. This meant not only no sleep, but it meant no gaming either. After a really long few days, he started to improve to the point where he was able to come home a few days ago. For me, family comes first so during this time I streamed once when I had some extra time, I have no idea how this happened because between going back and forth to the hospital I also had to work. Like I said, it hasn’t been the easiest month, but I am back now and I have gamed, not as much as I wanted to, but it’s still something and I was able to get some trophies so let’s take a look at them.

Far Cry 5 – 50%

I am completely in love with this game. I love everything about it, talking about the single player only, the mission, the story, the areas, the graphics, and so much more. I think that this is probably the best Far Cry game since Far Cry 3. That being said, I thought we had broken away from the tacked on Multiplayer, but we haven’t and I hate it. It just sucks. Anyone who has played this game also has to know this. If you can find something great about the multiplayer, let me know down in the comments section below.

Q*Bert: Rebooted – 14%

I’ve been wanting to play this game for a while, but I didn’t want to pay for it. Thanks to PS+, this game is free for the month so if you’re like me and you’ve wanted to play it but haven’t, make sure to pick it up. Anyway, I played this game when I had some short bursts of time and I wanted to just get away from all of the stress and stuff that I was going through. Why I picked this game, I have no idea because I could have seriously thrown my controller through the window. That being said, I kind of like this game even with all the frustration.

Q*bert: RebootedQ*bert: Rebooted

And that was it for the trophies. A total of 16 trophies in two weeks. Not really the best showing and hopefully with my dad out of the hospital and doing better, this number will increase this upcoming week. I doubt I’ll be able to finish Far Cry 5 before God of War comes out, but that doesn’t mean I won’t try. Anyway, for this upcoming week I’ll continue to play Far Cry 5, a little Q*Bert: Rebooted on the side, and definitely play some God of War. I’ll let you know how things turn out next week.

This Week in Trophies 03-25-2018 – 03-31-2018

This was a pretty exciting week in trophies, compared to last week. I was able to get a bunch of them. Nowhere near a normal amount that I would have gotten years ago, but still a decent amount for having to be an adult for most of the week. Anyway, onto the trophies.

Batman: The Enemy Within – 100%

The last episode for this game came out this week and I was able to play it before the week was over. I’ll have my full review up Wednesday so until then I’ll be keeping quiet on what I thought about the game.

Batman: The Enemy WithinBatman: The Enemy WithinBatman: The Enemy WithinBatman: The Enemy WithinBatman: The Enemy WithinBatman: The Enemy WithinBatman: The Enemy Within

Far Cry 5 – 20%

I started this game this week and so far I am just loving it. I love basically everything about it and spend almost all of my time playing and streaming it. I’m have a really fun time at the moment, even though I haven’t even past the first full story line for this game, but I’m going to continue on because it looks like this game can only get better at the moment.

Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5Far Cry 5

The Sims 4 – 47%

So I had to play something while I waited patiently for Far Cry 5 to come out and figured that I might as well play The Sims. I was able to get a couple of trophies for this game as I basically now use my Sims as little worker ants who’s main goals are to reproduce in order to keep their family line going for 26 generations and advance in all of the careers and skills. Fun times.

The Sims 4The Sims 4The Sims 4The Sims 4

There you have it, a total of 23 trophies this week. Much better than last week and not a bad way to end the month. I’m looking forward to continue to play Far Cry 5 this upcoming week, continue to get trophies in that game and other than that I think that’s it. There might be another game or two pop in there and if there is I’ll let you know next week.
