  1. Update! I've brought a couple of new games this week! I went and brought The Long Dark instead of Shadow of the Tomb Raider as I haven't had time to play the other Tomb Raider games yet so I want to do those first. Also The Long Dark looks like a sort of game I'd really enjoy and I kind of fancy being lost in a post-apocalyptic snowy landscape while being constantly worried about freezing to death and taking four days to figure out how to build a fire 😂😏! I know I have it on XB1 in digital form, but I'm a sucker for a great little retail edition of a game! Plus it includes a lovely little Field Journal and a code for the Soundtrack! Anyway, here's a video for you all to watch if you haven't the foggiest idea of what The Long Dark is. The second game I brought is STAY, which only just came out the other day. I was originally going to get this on the PS4, but it's quite cheaper on the Switch so I got it on there instead. This is what the description of STAY is on the store; Here's a trailer for you: Anyway, these purchases put me down to -3 points, but that's okay as I need an incentive to work extra hard to redeem myself and also start to earn my Christmas List...which is probably going to take me FOREVER, but heyho, BRING IT ON!!!
  2. I started Mafia 3 yesterday and I'm sat playing it now, and I've got to say, I'm not feeling it today. It's not the game, it's just lately I feel a little lost when it comes to deciding what to play and then sticking with it, so I think I need to go back to an oldie but a goodie sort of game that I always go to when I feel like this. So I think I'm going to fire up the Xbox One and chuck in State of Decay as I can get absolutely lost in that game, go back to it a lot and it may even give me my gaming mojo back 😁!

      After going outside into the sunshine, I'll just play a favorite game, even one I've beat before.  That is what gaming is all about, isn't it?  Having fun.  I have some great games that I know I need to be in the right frame of mind to start and stay with them.

      @AshestoAshes28  BTW, how did you like Mafia 3?  I haven't started it yet but would like to hear your thoughts.

      @Bos10George, @Spawn, and @PermaFox, thank everyone! :) I think I just need to forget about trophy/achievement hunting for a while as I work 3 days a week so it's like my mind is thinking, 'you've got to make the most of this time off before you go back to work' but then I'm so indecisive about what to play or I'm so hung up on getting the trophies/achievements for the game that I waste my time and don't get any games done in the process. So I think I'm going to take @Spawn's advice and turn of the notifications and just play to play if you get what I mean!

       

      On another note, State of Decay is making me feel better, but I think I'll need to get the big guns out (Stardew Valley/Harvest Moon :P) at some point over the next few days haha!

      @PermaFox, sorry your extra reply only just loaded when I hit reply on the big reply above. Mafia 3 is a pretty great game, but it can get pretty repetitive when it comes to gameplay and actual story as well to be honest. But I'd still recommend it to you as it is a good game overall. :) 

  3. Mafia 2 (PS3) Enjoyment: 10/10 Difficulty: 4/10 Trophy Wise: 10/10 Well what can I say about this game other than it's a complete masterpiece in my opinion! You play as a young Sicilian man named Vito Scaletta who emigrated to Empire Bay when he was just a boy. But, as Vito often does, he dreamed of a life that was better than his fathers, and so his journey begun. The overall story is fantastic, the characters are lovable and charming, and the game play is explosive and also makes it a joy to play! And to say that Mafia 2 is an 8 year old game and is on a last gen console, the game doesn't look or play half bad, which is always a welcome addition in my book! However, I definitely wouldn't recommend the DLC to anyone as they firstly, have nothing to do with the main story, apart from Joe's Adventures, and secondly, they can just be plain boring and unnecessarily boring and grindy, which isn't needed in a game like this. If anyone was to ask me what game I'd recommend to them, then it would be Mafia 2 every time as it's just one of those games that everyone should play at least one and also have on their gaming profiles! So do yourself a favour, and go and buy Mafia 2! Trust me, you'll thank me later . Played on PS3 So that now means I've got 3 points to use on a new game and I've updated my Original Post. So I think that this will have to be the new Tomb Raider and then I can binge on the whole series at once! Also @Paleblood, I've finally added my coin to my signature, and I really don't know why it took me so long to be honest . Anyway, thank you @ruffedgz for designing the badges for the event! You've done a great job!

  5. Hey! Feel free to add me on PSN and/or Xbox One! I'm always looking to make some new friends and find some great people to chat about games to . I mostly play single-player games, but I do have a couple of multiplayer games to play when I get round to them! I love finding a good game/series to get into and I love the sense of adventure you get from playing games! PSN: AshestoAshes28 Xbox: AshesToAshes97 Please say that your from here though as I don't accept blank friend requests.
  6. Platinum #4: Mafia 2! What a masterpiece of a game, but it's a real shame that they made those DLCS as they are shocking, which I don't normally say about games, but there you go.

     

    Onto something new now, so I think I might start Mafia 3 now so I can catch up with Vito! 😁

      @PooPooBlast, yeah I get what you mean, I've played it on an old account :). And I also love a little bit of Vito, so I'll be playing all his cutscenes :).

      @DamagingRob, thank you! :) 

      @Honor_Hand, thank you! :D

  7. Firstly, sorry for leaving my reply for so long. Work has been hectic and I'm only now having a few days off to play and chat! Thank you for reading my update! I'm really proud of those Crash plats! As for the gifts I think what I'll do is, if it's okay, just limit myself to one gift a month, if I get any. But this month I've had two gifts (Hollow Knight and The Adventure Pals) as work messed up my pay...again, but those will be the last ones that I get for a while. So I've got two points so far which is good! I've nearly finished Mafia 2 as I've just got all of those Wanted Posters to collect and I've so far got around 30/152, so I got a fair few to get still. Then I've got the DLC to finish but those shouldn't take too long, hopefully. Oh, I've FINALLY updated my main Original Post so all of my digital and physical games are in there now! And I've also done a kind of Event History on my main post as well to sort of like a diary detailing my progress and points, so you guys can look at it and so can I then. Oh, I've also traded in a ton of my PS3 games which was actually a tricky thing for me to do as I don't really like selling/trading my games and also no ones really buying them anymore to be honest. I've not given myself any points for that as they were mainly games that I didn't see myself playing or platting. Anyway, that's it for me! I'll update again when I've finished Mafia 2! P.S I've just noticed that I'm not in the Participants Section Could you add me in please?
  8. Got my first proper paycheck this morning, so to mark the occasion and to have something incredibly special and beautiful, I went and brought these beauties from Fangamer!😍💚

  9. Hey! Just wanted to say thank you for your video review/gameplay of The Adventure Pals! I was on the fence about getting this, but after watching your video and seeing how cute it is, I brought it immediately! Keep up the great work with the videos! 😁

      That's really nice of you, thank you for contacting me! 🙂 Really means a lot that my videos are helping others and that it brings more attention and coverage on the game itself. I recently platinum the game and it was a great experience for sure, especially in co-op. Let me know if you have any questions and thank you again for contacting me. Literally made my day 😬

      No problem! I'm glad that you did the video to be honest as I hadn't heard of it before seeing it on here and I love these little indie games, but most importantly, I love to support them! I can't wait to play it so I'll let you know when I've started it :D! I'm happy that I've made your day!

      Appreciate the response my friend, thanks a lot! Let me know what you think of the game! 🙂

  10. Going to start working on my PS3 backlog now and first up is a classic, Mafia 2! 😃 Absolutely love this game and it's been sooo long since I last played it, so I'm excited to get back into it!

  11. Well guys, I did it! I completed/platted the whole Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy!😁 So without counting the first game, as I had already started that before I signed up to this event, I have finished two games for a total of two points! Only need one more point before I can buy a new game . I'll update my original post now along with my digital games with it. I have a question though, do games that have been gifted to you count towards your points being used? As my mum brought me a Nintendo eShop Card yesterday as she saw on HotDeals that Hollow Knight was £7.25 in a sale and she treated me to it.
  12. And with the completion of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, I've now completed the whole N.Sane Trilogy! 😁 What a fantastic set of games! I loved playing these games (stupid Stormy Ascent level 😒) and I'm happy to have them on my profile, proudly displayed! Now I've just got to decide what to play next...🤔

  13. [Crash Bandicoot 2] I've finally finished / achieved all of the Gold Relics for every level! 😁 They actually weren't as bad as I thought they would be and they were definitely not as bad as the Crash Bandicoot 1 Relics! Just got tomorrow at work and then I've got three days to finish off the Gems, Secret Exits and to be crushed by an ice cube and then I'll have my platinum!😆

  14. My weekend has been alright thanks, how's your's been? I'm back at work tomorrow, but only for a day and then I'm off for another 3 so Crash 2 will be done for next weekend...hopefully I NEED to start the Yakuza series as it looks right up my alley in terms of genre and gameplay! Get it started dude! 😂 On another note though, I've decided to only get one game in September and that Shadow of the Tomb Raider as I can't wait for that game! The other's can either wait until Christmas or another time really. Now how's that for discipline 😂! Trimmed it down from 5 to 1!
  15. {Crash Bandicoot 2} I seem to be making good progress in regards to the time trials as I now have all of Warp Room 5 done! :D This for me is the hardest Warp Room so I'm pretty happy to have it done. Here's hoping the rest of the Warp Rooms don't give me as much hassle...😂

      @MMDE, thanks for the video! My time for Spaced Out was around the 1.02 mark and I practically threw my controller when I saw the Gold Relic :P

      Great video, and a Gold Relic is definitely a Gold Relic 😂

      And yes, these were annoying if for no other reason than the controls are confusing.
