Xbox Backlog Recovery Summary Feb-Mar

After letting this blog slip massively into a three month slump without a post, I considered ending it completely while also thinking about full catching up. However, even at the rate of even ten days per post, the amount of content would take so long that the backlog would never be fully ended.

As a result, I have decided to try and summarise the missing four separate months with the use of the usual totals from posts and the milestones, goals and completions for those months.


Although this month was featured full until the last post from the 13th-17th, the summary of the second half of the month saw a single milestone in the form of 180,000 TA points achieved. The period saw a single game completion which ironically was started on the 18th and finished six days later on the 24th.

Costume Quest 2The game Costume Quest 2 was an interesting and graphically amazing game with the 18 unlocks making for around eight hours total playtime. 

Overall, February despite being two/three days less than the rest of the year, saw a good set of numbers with a total of 82 unlocks with 61 on the Xbox One and 21 split across the Xbox 360/Windows 8 platforms.

2020G with a huge uneven split of 1795 on the Xbox One while the Xbox 360/Windows 8 platforms saw just 225 with a strong 4278 TA points collected over the month.

In terms of goals, no completions but progress made towards the 120,000G and 6500 achievement accolades.


After the sub 100 unlocks in February, March saw huge success across the board with the first few days seeing the milestone of 120,000 G completed with 185,000 TA reached to the end of the most and a new 'Best Day Ever' on the 27th.

The fact it was that date was strange given it came exactly four years after what was the current record of 27 March 2011. 

Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious (Xbox 360)Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious (Xbox 360)The new trio of records stand at 48 unlocks, 1830 G and 2039 TA in a single day and the day also saw the 45th game completion in the form of  Forza Horizon 2-Fast and Furious (X1) with its sister version completed the following day.

The final milestone of the month came on the 29th as I reached 6500 achievements (not inc apps) which made for a superb month on all accounts. 

The numbers for the month saw a haul of 151 unlocks with a 110 on the Xbox One and 41 split between Xbox 360/Windows 8 while a massive haul of 7742 TA came mostly from the aforementioned completions as did the 4625 G.
