Progress. Progress is key.
Didn’t blog Wednesday as I got home super late and really didn’t have any time to play games. So its on to Thursday.
Got home and after working out I had a hot date with Unmechanical Extended. Turns out I was about 2/3 of the way through the game and I definitely had to rely on the walkthrough quite a bit more than I did for the previous 2/3 of the game. I was able to get through the story and actually got the achievement for not using any hints the entire game which was pretty surprising actually. So that was cool.
There was an additional episode included in the game, hence the Extended word in the title. That episode sported two achievements both of them path choices at the end of the episode. Luckily the game doesn’t save at the end so you can “continue” after beating the episode one way and do it the other way for the other achievement. The same thing goes for the actual story too. So there are four achievements tied to game/episode ending choices. I knocked out a good chunk of achievements today, better than my average recently for sure. I am now in cleanup mode and I should be able to complete this game no problem. I gotta get to about the middle of the game which should take me around 30 minutes so thats no big deal. Getting there should put me in line for two achievements, the other two I can get pretty early on I think, one of them is right at the beginning. If I have time, ill hopefully be able to complete the game tomorrow. At the very least my goal is to cut the 4 achievements left in half.
Age of Empires Castle Siege has always been the popular play of the day. I started my first level 4 upgrade yesterday and it takes 3 1/2 days to complete. So we are looking at another 3 weeks before I can call this game done. I am pretty close to the 7.5k pennants for all civs, I think I am under 7.5k on just two of the 5. So I’ll have plenty of time to shore up my reserves on those two. 3 1/2 days also gives me plenty of time to collect the 715k wood I need to start the upgrade as well. My goal is to have wood maxed out pretty much so when I get to the end, ill have 7 days of just waiting, no need to even play. I decided to upgrade the Frank’s unique troop first as I just roll with 31 of them when I attack. Next up will probably be the Brits, and it really doesn’t matter after that who is selected. I don’t really use any of the other troops.
That is it for me
