Thoughts on all the games I played and achievements I unlocked on Thursday, August 30, 2012.
Lions & Zombies & Snipers….Oh My!
Sniper Elite V2 takes roughly 15-20 hours for the full 1k.
It was a fun little sniping game, and if you’re a fan of third-person shooters, I’d recommend checking it out. Worth a look just for the awesome Slow Motion kills.
Achievements – Sniper Elite difficulty will be a pain for some. No MP to worry about but you’ll need a buddy for a few co-op achievements. Unfortunately, you have to complete the game in SP Sniper elite difficulty for the achievement to unlock, doesn’t work in co-op.
I only played a couple of games but I like how Kinect functions with the game. You say “HIKE” and by golly, your QB will hike the ball. You say “SPIKE” and you will get in formation to spike the ball. This voice communication revolution makes more sense in football games, than it does in something like Mass Effect 3, at least to me. I actually use it, and it does make play calling easier to accomplish just by shouting at your TV.
There seems to be a noticeable graphical leap over last years offering, no doubt, an improvement in the animations department, it just looks more realistic all-around. The stiff as a cats hind leg player models and animations are almost non-existent at this point. I’m really liking it so far, and for once during this entire generation, the Madden achievements won’t be a stroll in the park. You’ll have to work for this 1,000.
I still cannot believe a Detroit Lion is on the cover of Madden 13. And they said it wasn’t possible.
If you haven’t played a single episode of The Walking Dead yet, stop reading this and go download it from the marketplace. Only $5 per episode and they are most excellent. Seriously, go! Run!
I’m so in love with this stuff, I would ask it to be my Valentine everyday of the year.
I’m less than 2,000 gamerscore from the big 750,000 milestone! Three-quarters or 75% to the 1,000,000 goal.
I really want to make a video for 750k but I have no idea what to include. I also want it to be a grand achievement for the 750,000 but I have no clue what achievement to pop. If you have any ideas on either, please leave me a comment. The video will need to be done sometime this weekend if I do it. I’m at 55% FOR doing a video at the moment.

I think I ate one too many beans though.
…they pull me back in.
What I played and the achievements I earned.
The best retail games of the year…so far.
These are the fresh new achievements that come with the Leviathan DLC , and it will set you back $10. As you can see from the timestamps above, it took a little over 2 hours in between the 1st and final achievement, but I did take a few long breaks while playing. This means that you will get no more than 2 hours gameplay from the DLC. The content starts off fairly slow but ends with a bang, fleshing out some of the back story and doing so in such an epic fashion. Abyss and Bioshock can just eat it!!!! It is solid content, worth the price of admission just for the final 15-20 minutes.
“Conspiracy theorist” achievement is missable, you have to find all the clues in the lab so you can narrow your search down to a single objective. Pretty much the first thing you will do.
Mass Effect 3 is still the king of 2012.
Watched a few episodes of How I Met Your Mother.
1) Finish 1k in Transformers. It has to happen.(YESSSSS)
2) Gain 700 Gamerscore (NOOOOO!!! I only scored 350 gamerscore – BOOOOOOOO)
Another day spent with Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.
No Stone Unturned
The Walking Dead Episode 3 is coming out on Wednesday and I’m DYING to get into that. Sudden onslaught of gaming goodness, even if it’s mini chunks.
All Your Messages are Belong to Me.
Simple. I’m not a big fan of Soccer games. I don’t hate them, I just find them boring after a few hours. I have around 10 Soccer games on my card though.
I would make more if I had the time. I need an assistant. 🙂
Somewhere between 0 and 24 hours.
Later dudes and the very few dudettes.
Nothing but Transformers all day long while I sing my song.
I’m almost done with the MP, I have one class left to max out and that’s sitting on level 20. Around 170k more XP to go. My play time for multiplayer was nearly 10 hours yesterday and my ass didn’t feel so well once I peeled it from the couch.
I’ll go with The Walking Dead games. $5 is a freaking steal for them!!
