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.

This Week in Trophies 06-04-207 – 06-10-2017

After a few lackluster weeks, I really felt like I had to amp it up with the trophy hunting because there are a bunch of games in my backlog and I really want to finish them up and move on. Anyway, I feel like I did a good job. Not dragging this out, let’s see what trophies I actually did get this week.

MouseCraft – 100%

I took most of the day last Sunday to finish this game up and had a really great time doing so. Like always, I’ll have my full review posted within the next couple of weeks to let you know what I really thought about the game.

Rise of the Tomb Raider – 11%

I started this game this week after a big debate of if I was going to play this game or Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. So far, I think it’s ok. It’s not the greatest Tomb Raider game, but it’s not the worst either. I’m still not far enough into it to actually judge it, but I am playing it when I can.

Abzu – 15%

I also started playing this game this week because I like having those smaller games to play along with the big games since I’m never sure how much time I’m going to have to game. Anyway, I’m kind of liking this under water Journey like game even though the controls are a little tricky and at the moment I’m not sure what the whole point of the game is.

ABZÛ ABZÛABZÛ

And that was it for this week. Not bad trophy wise, and I did get a lot of game play in so I’m a happy camper. This upcoming week, I plan on finishing Abzu as well as continuing my journey with Rise of the Tomb Raider in order to see where that leads me. Going off topic for a moment, I didn’t realize that Rise of the Tomb Raider has 125 trophies. Seriously? That’s a lot of trophies. Anyway, I’ll probably also be starting Killing Floor 2 because Matt @TheAlbumWeb has told me how absolutely wonderful this game is despite the fact that the trailer looks like crap. I’ll let you know next week if Matt was right about Killing Floor 2 and what other trophies I was able to get.

This Week in Trophies 05-28-2017 – 06-03-2017

After a week break of not even turning on my PS4, I finally got the chance this week to sit down and play some games. This was super surprising since I was extremely busy the whole week. Who knew that after a convention things would be so busy with everything to post, video’s to edit, and the fact that I had to work most of the week. Anyway enough of that, I have to mention that not only did I get to game this week but I also got two platinum trophies. Keep reading to see what they were for.

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – 100%

The last episode for this game came out on Tuesday and I didn’t get a chance to play it until yesterday. It was really the only day that I had that much time to game. Anyway, I finished it in one sitting and will have the full review for the episode up this Wednesday.

Super Exploding Zoo! – 100%

Not only did I start this game this week, but I also finished it and was able to get the platinum trophy for the game. I did this while doing all those other things that I had mentioned in the opening of this blog which wasn’t half that bad. Anyway, you’ll be seeing my full review for this game within the next couple of weeks.

MouseCraft – 5%

To end my week, I decided to play MouseCraft which has been sitting in my Library for a while now and I just figured what the hell. I finished one puzzle game, what’s another puzzle game. So far I’m liking the game and am about ¼ way through it.

MouseCraft

That was it for this week. For not having much time to game, I think it was pretty active and at least I was able to rack up two whole platinum trophies. Not bad at all. Now for the upcoming week, I plan on finishing up MouseCraft and I plan on starting a new game. I’m not sure what it’s going to be and I’m kind of torn between playing Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Abzu. While I might be able to fit in Abzu since it’s a small game, the other two I’m not sure of. Let me know in the comments section which you think I should start and I’ll let you know how things went next week.

This Week in Trophies 05-14-2017 – 05-20-2017

I tried to game as much as possible this week, and I think I did an OK job. I did hit some milestones as I finished my second playthrough of Mass Effect: Andromeda like I wanted to, and I also finished my first playthrough of Dead Island – Definitive Edition. Other than that, it was a busy week and I couldn’t find that much time to game. Anyway, let’s take a look at what trophies I was able to get this week.

Mass Effect: Andromeda – 84%

Like I said earlier, I finished my second playthrough of this game and even though I’m eager to start my third and final playthrough, I’m not sure when I’m going to start yet. There’s also the question of if I want to play on insanity or do the 5 gold runs in the multiplayer. Granted, I haven’t played the multiplayer all that much so I’m a little unsure of what to do here. Anyway, it probably won’t be this week that I start a new game of Mass Effect: Andromeda, but it will be soon.

Gems of War – 87%

There’s usually something that pulls me back into this game each time and this time it was the fact that there was some new DLC added and with that DLC came three new trophies. I of course had to try and get as many of these trophies as I could because I hate that it kills my completion each and every time something new is added. Anyway, this time it was Guild Wars. My guild is pretty small, but at least the trophies aren’t that hard to get.

Dead Island – Definitive Edition – 51%

I was happy to at least finish this game this week and get through all four acts. I have to say that this was one really crappy remaster of a game that wasn’t really all that good to begin with. I thought the remaster would be different because of a couple of different things, but it hasn’t been that great of an overall experience. Anyway, I’m unsure if I’ll go for the platinum trophy or not for this game.

And that was it for the week. For this upcoming week, I have no idea what to expect. I’ll have about four days to game and then I’m off to MegaCon which means no gaming. It’s a tough decision, going to a pretty big convention and meeting a bunch of awesome celebrities or staying home and gaming. Decisions, decisions. Anyway, if I do get some gaming time in while I’m not prepping for my trip to MegaCon, I’m not really sure what I’ll play and I doubt I’ll start something new. I might not even get any trophies next week. Either way I’ll let you know.

This Week in Trophies 05-07-2017 – 05-13-2017

As you know, I recently purchased an 8TB external hard drive for my PS4 to fit the ever growing backlog of games that I’ve acquired. While I’ve been trying my hardest to load each and every game onto this external hard drive along with being busy with life, I’ve actually forgotten to game. Silly me. Anyway, this week I had enough of that and decided that I would start something new even if that meant putting off my second Mass Effect: Andromeda playthrough for just a little while until I had some more time to actually play. Anyway, here’s what I played this week.

Dead Island – Definitive Edition – 37%

I had originally played this game on the PS3 when a former friend of mine said I had to have this game because she had it and it didn’t matter that I was unemployed because we needed something new to play. So I broke down and got it. Ended up beating it alone on the PS3, thanks former friend, but then decided to purchase the “Definitive Edition” for the PS4 so that I could experience the whole game by myself and judge it for myself like I did with Borderlands 2. Anyway, I’ve been playing this game all week basically and was able to rack up a decent amount of trophies. So far, I’m enjoying it the game even though it isn’t really the best.

And that was it for this week because that was all my schedule allowed me. Anyway, for this upcoming week, I plan on getting at least a full day of Mass Effect: Andromeda in which should finish up my second playthough before moving onto my third and final playthrough of the game. Other than that I’ll continue to play Dead Island – Definitive Edition until I finish that up and start a new game. Check back next week to see how I did.

This Week in Trophies 04-30-2017 – 05-06-2017

I’m not going to lie, this was the absolute worst trophy week ever. EVER. I had no time to play anything because I worked my ass off this week and came home dead tired almost every night. For some reason when I’m that tired I really can’t game because my mind just isn’t into it especially if it’s a heavy on the story game. Anyway, get prepared to see the smallest amount of trophies probably ever.

Mass Effect: Andromeda – 81%

I was actually able to play this game for a whole day this week due to a day off and in that time I got two whole trophies. One trophy must have popped by mistake because I fell off a cliff in New Tuchanka and it registered that I jetpacked 30m in one jump. Yay for glitches? The other one was for using my little buddy ZAP to help me kill some baddies. I did advance in the story a lot locking down my second successful relationship with Vetra and basically setting out for the final mission of the game. I’m close to finishing my second playthrough and the finish line is right there.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Mass Effect: Andromeda

And that was it. Told you, worst trophy week ever and was totally not lying. This upcoming week I’m looking at another busy busy schedule that is totally work related and I know, I just know that when I come home all I’m going to want to do is zone out in front of the TV. I am going to try though and finish up my second playthrough of Mass Effect: Andromeda and actually play something else because I’m getting this itch where I have a ton of games on my system, thanks 8TB external hard drive, and am just itching to play them all. So we’ll see. I’ll let you know how everything turns out next week.

This Week in Trophies 04-23-2017 – 04-20-2017

Seeing as I didn’t earn my first trophy this week until Friday, you can already tell that it was another lackluster week of trophies. It wasn’t for my lack of trying though, just a lack of time. Time seems to be my enemy when it comes to trophy hunting and just being able to play anything worthwhile at all. Anyway, let’s get on with this so you can see just how little trophies I was able to get this week.

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – 80%

A new episode was released this week and I was lucky enough to get to this episode by Friday. I did complete it and get all the trophies for it. I’ll have my full review of the episode this Wednesday for you so you can see what I thought about the episode.

The Disney Afternoon Collection – 30%

In my constant lack of time for being able to play games, it’s nice to know that I have at least one game that I can play in the maybe hour that I have during the week to play and play something simple. I was able to get two trophies for this game this week and while it’s aggravating, it’s also ok. I have to say that while I’m enjoying my time playing, a lot of these games are a little on the frustrating side.

And that was it for this week, making this another super short blog. Sorry about that! I really am trying when it comes to gaming but life has been getting in the way a lot lately. I’m hoping things kind of return to normal this week and I plan on trying to get through my second playthrough of Mass Effect: Andromeda, continue playing The Disney Afternoon Collection, and maybe even start something new. I’ll let you know how things go next week.
