Seeing the internet blowing up about The Last Jedi is killing me, not time to watch it until next week either. Hi everyone, why is everyone posting your top games and play times+gamescore?

Guess I might as well do this too.

 

Top 5 games:

 

1. Elite Dangerous

2. GTA V

3. Forza Horizon 3

4. Assassin's Creed Rogue (this one surprised me, didn't think I played it that much, and definitely think I put more time into Origins)

5. Song of the Deep

 

159 total achievements. Only 3,015 gamerscore, but blame that on playing too much Elite Dangerous and GTA V, which aren't really heavily focused on achievements. Plus I have a full time job. 

 

Most played genres:

Action Adventure: 194

Sports: 149

Shooter: 16

 

Total hours played: 368

(your link)

got em. I miss so bad the Xbox and unlocking achievements. Its literally the only reason I played on my Xbox. Mine is most likely zeroed out as I haven't played almost none at all this year.

Raptr, in its golden years 2012-2013 did something like this.

I'm late to the party but I'll post my stats.

 

Top 5 Games:

1. Destiny 2

2. Destiny

3. South Park: The Stick of Truth

4. Call of Duty 2

5. The Stick of Truth

 

6637 GS -> Top 2%

215 Achievements -> Top 5%

746 Total Hours -> Top 10%

 

Top Genre: Shooter

 

I seem pretty inefficient regarding GS/Hour compared to some of the numbers others have shared. But considering that in the 6 weeks since this ended I scored another 3000 GS (50% of what I scored in the first 10 months) I think I'm improving.

 

Some of that boost is due to TA's 12 Days of Christmas. I'm almost done I need 4 more for Day 12 - Leap Frog.

 

Also, in case it hasn't been mentioned before, Hitman Christmas Pack is free on XBL.

Romancing Saga 2 is also out. $19.99 launch price ($24.99 normally)

https://www.microsof...-2/9MWNL6SB15W0

I’d like to know if there’s any difference between this and the mobile version. The console launch trailer is exactly the same as the iOS one from 2015.

 

Really want to jump on this to support JRPGS. Luckily the sale lasts till January so I can see what we get out of the countdown sales.

 

If anyone has slight interest in God of War, Marlow Briggs is pretty damn fun clone. It's also pretty short at 6-7 hours so it will get out of your backlog fast. Also, any achievement you get is automatically rare. Kinda shocked me considering the study make $40+ million off their $5 million budget after the game was released. They also haven't made a new game since It's release.


... go to sleep.

Saw The Last Jedi earlier and liked it.  Surprised to see a 56% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes (it's certified fresh from critics at 93%).

 

 

Back to the backlog. I made it to a boss battle with eels on Ninja Gaiden Black. Those guys are jerks. 

Not a big surprise to see the "fan" backlash, I don't think the right decisions were made and now if you strike Disney down it really is all powerful.

NBA Jam still came in 3rd for me

 

I guess Xbox doesn't log the PC play time on play anywhere games, otherwise Horizon 3 would be #1 by far

Fired up Marlow Briggs. Not a bad God of War style brawler. Definitely B-level stuff but has its charm.

Haven’t gotten far enough to know but can you also win with no kills (ie., last other remaining player dies outside the final zone)?

you totally could, and probably happens a lot the way the decreasing circle works. I've been in lots of "standoffs" where the final circle is going to go my way or not, part of the simple glorious RNG of that game

Maybe sell Far Cry Primal for below $20 digital this Christmas? I'm so conflicted on this game and it has nothing at all to do with politics. I think Far Cry 3 and even 4 are best in genre at what they do, even if you hate the "stories" they  just had a ton of world in them. I think they threw a lot of that into the new Assassin's Creed Origins, at times it feels a lot more like a Far Cry game then any of the previous ones. I have to say I'm getting burnt out on it cleaning up the achievements. There is only so many times you want to Kill the Captain and Loot the Treasure. Will be hard to hype myself off for another locations run in Far Cry 5.

I have to agree with that somewhat on FC5. If I were a completionist, I wouldn’t want to grind those games. I’m not, though, so I can’t wait for FC5. Those have become my favorite group of games, even though o had never played one until FC4. Loved 4 and loved Primal. They’re so much damn fun.

Thank you for the short review. I cashed in a code for a free month of Gold just to get Marlow Briggs.

Gems of War is having daily giveaways for the next 12 days just for logging in. Dec. 15 giveaway is the troop Mongo which also gives you the Game Breaker achievement.

Just logged in today and they're cumulative, so if you missed a day or two, you'll get them the next time. Probably as long as you log in during the holiday promotion.

My list is.... interesting

1: Minecraft Xbox one Edition
2: Forza Horizon 3
3: Rise of the Tomb Raider
4: LEGO Movie Game
5: Batman Arkham Knight

368 hours played
511 achievements
9695 GS

You can tell my seven year old plays xbox. He plays Minecraft by himself and we play the LEGO games together. Also shows how scattershot my gaming has been that his games are in the top 5.

By comparison, for the year-to-date numbers from TA have me at 659 achievements and 12,665 GS.

As for Star Wars, Disney lost me with TFA. Kylo Ren made whiny Anakin from Attack of the Clones look macho. I’m still mad over who he killed. How does Rey go from finding out she’s in tune with the force to mind tricking stormtroopers in a day, when it took Luke years to be able just to pull his lightsaber? Then again, JJ Abrams pulled off the amazing feat of ruining both Star Wars and Star Trek, so I guess it’s got that going for it.

I have zero stats because I changed my gamertag a few months back. At least that is what I assume the issue is. Oh well.

Saw Star Wars. It’s good!

It was “spoiled” for me in the HQ trivia chat, of all things. I think I’ve turned a corner on spoilers in that it just made me want to see the movie more to see how it all happened.

Not sure about the disparity between Rotten Tomatoes certified fresh and the bad User scores. Weird.

So is the Injustice 2 “demo” just a standard demo or is it the full game for a free to play weekend?

Not old enough to have seen Star Wars in the theaters but old enough to remember what an event it was to see Return of the Jedi in the theaters the users scores don't surprise me in the least.
