XBox Update: August 2021
I was all ready to talk about a new game that I started in the past month – then I realized that I started it last month. Oops.
Anyway it is Hard West: Ultimate Edition.
It’s an episodic Xcom style game. I’ve played two and a bit episodes, and earned 5 of 35 achievements in it.
That Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 game had a free weekend and so I played that. I actually had a lot of fun with it and got 36/46 achievements. It was very fun to play with the kids and compete against them at various olympic events.
Honestly I would buy it if online wasn’t completely broken. I kept trying to play online and it kept disconnecting etc. Was frustrating as I actually won a 100m race too then it disconnected. Luckily no achievements for that.
Was 750 of 1000 I ended up with.
All those Fifa, NHL games etc being discontinued and removed from EA Access will screw me in terms of achievement percentage. So many of them where I have only a few achievements in and always meant to go back to.
It’s nice that I don’t really care about achievement percentage anymore ha. Otherwise that would really drive me nuts.
Good thing is I got a new work schedule going as of this last week and that’s allowing me more free time. It’s basically:
Monday-Thursday; 5 hours per day.
Friday-Sunday: Combined 10 hours.
So a nice reduced work life going forward of 30 hours per week. It’s one of my goals as I get older and I hope to further reduce that in 2022 to 25 hours per week.
It’s allowed me a lot more free time which is nice. I just started it this past week but I really felt it helped me work optimally as well.
Here’s my stats:
Gamerscore: 297,193 (+785)
TA Score: 490,377 (+1449)
Achievements: 12,584 (+40)
TA Ratio: 55.82% (+0.07%)
100% Games: 119 (+1)
