What’s up gamers? I hope the month of May treated you all well. Didn’t do a lot in the gaming community other than planning and the majority of that was for the “other” systems. Shame, shame, shame. Speaking of shame, who all watched the series finale for Game of Throne’s? Yep, me too and I find it shameful that this season was so rushed. I am perfectly ok with the outcome of all the characters (King Bran the Broken??? WTF!) with the exception of one, but I hate how rushed the season was. Anyways, enough about all that gibberish.
I really didn’t have any expectations going into the month as I knew I had lots to do around the house. My upstairs is official christened as the entertainment room now, I got another storage building and cleaned out my garage only to junk it up with workout gear, I got my landscaping under control, pressure washed the house, and the pool and grill is up and running! All good reasons to have a weak month gaming in my opinion.
What I did do this month is earn three massive trophies in Marvel’s Spider-Man. For those that don’t know, I had the ending spoiled for me. I didn’t realize that it played on me to the point that I just put the game down, but I did. I have slowly jumped back into and started making some decent progress in it. I have been focusing mostly on the side missions and extras while gradually progressing in the main story. While I do hate the R&D Stations and the Taskmaster Challenges, I will have this complete by the end of the year. The achievements I’ll be focused on this month are:
Nickelodeon: Kart Racer, is one I have been playing with my kiddos. I’m still a little concerned with its progress seeing that the kiddos are loving heading upstairs to hang out in the entertainment room. Last month I worked on completing all of the cups on easy and made some progress. It’s harder than it looks when you are rotating stages with one of the Younglings and barely when the Cup. Luckily the computer doesn’t always place in the same position throughout the cup. This month I would like to finish up:
Let’s talk about Resident Evil 2. I’m a terrible person! The only thing I have done with this is turn it on so I could fall asleep to that classic soundtrack. I know, all that talk about finishing Leon’s hardcore run and I didn’t even have the courage to try it again. So for this month I will once again state claim that I will complete the following:
I know this is going to be rough for me with the wife off work and the kiddos out of school and all the fun that can be had outside and on holiday, but I will truly attempt it. I will definitely put it before my Xbox doing but I’m not sure if it will take precedence over anything else. Oh yeah, did I mention that I have a nephew on the way? His name is Cole and the doc says he will be here around the 14th. I can’t wait to meet him.
This year will also be the first year that I have been able to participate in Days of Play, I hear this is a good time to find some great deals digitally and I have quite a few on my must play list. I also really excited for June’s free games. I am yet to play Borderlands: The Presequal and looking forward to playing BL2 again before jumping into BL3, let me know if you plan on picking it up or not. I’m going to need some people to play it with.
