150,000G Reached In A Bumper Cross-Platform Fortnight

After the initial test of a weekly summary, a neglect in blogging began but with the end of 2015 just a few days away, I need to be up to date going into the new year starting with the remaining weeks of November. This post covers the period of the 8th-22nd November finishing with the two year anniversary statistics for the Xbox One.

Zoo Tycoon achievementsSpectra achievementsNovember 8 saw a session split between two games on the Xbox One in the form of Spectra and Zoo Tycoon with a total of three achievements and 45G split in favour of Spectra. 

EA SPORTS Active 2 achievements Costume Quest 2 (Xbox 360) achievementsA World of Keflings (Win 8) achievementsJames Cameron's Avatar achievements

The ninth saw a huge effort in the Achievement Chase with four games featuring - Avatar, EA Active 2, A World of Keflings (Win 8) and Costume Quest 2 which was a completion. The quartet combined for a huge total of 24 achievement and a massive haul of 1,167G.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas achievementsA shorter session followed on the 10th as GTA-San Andreas took centre stage with five achievements for 120G. The pursuit of reaching 150,000 G was within reach with just 185 G left to claim.

November 11 is written as Armistice Day and in this context also as the day when I reached my all-time goal of 150,000 G.The plan had been to do a perfect split of 100,000 G on the X360/Windows platforms and 50,000 G on the Xbox One but a date stamped unlock meant a slight difference of 10 G overall. On the Xbox One was a Halo-The Master Chief Collection and on the '360- GTA-San Andreas and Vancouver 2010 with the latter being the historic game used for the milestone.  The trio of games combined for five achievements and 185 G.

Feeding Frenzy achievements      
 The 12th saw a début for backward compatible Xbox 360 game Feeding Frenzy which saw a reasonable three achievements for 30G. The following day saw Feeding Frenzy continue but with only two achievements for 40 G.

Gems of War achievementsThe 14th saw a tiny bit of play time as Gems of War was started on the Xbox One with just a single achievement being unlocked for just 5 G. The session continued into the next day with three further achievements unlocked for 45 G and the next day was the only game played for one more achievement for 50 G.

Q achievementsAfter débuting earlier in the month, Xbox One Indie game Q had a lengthy play session on the 17th with a total of 11 achievements unlocked for a very low 60 G but given the game's total is 99 achievements for 1000G, it was a small drop in the Q ocean.

Hexic HD achievementsJoy Ride Turbo achievementsNovember 18th saw two backward compatible '360 titles combine as Hexic and Joyride Turbo resulted in a total of seven achievements for 90 G.

Golden Axe achievementsAnother backward compatible from the Xbox 360 was given a début in the form of retro classic title Golden Axe which in a session of about an hour resulted in three achievements for 55 G.

Minecraft: Story Mode - A Telltale Games Series achievementsA new game came on the Xbox One as Minecraft -Story Mode received it's first play which saw four achievements for a total of 95 G

LEGO Jurassic World achievementsMinecraft: Story Mode - A Telltale Games Series achievementsThe following day saw the Minecraft-Story Mode session continue with a début for Lego Jurassic World also on the Xbox One coming later in the day, the two combined for four achievements and 125 G.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection achievementsNovember 22 marked two years since the launch of the Xbox One so it was apt that Xbox One title Halo-The Master Chief Collection was played on which saw two achievements for 15 G. However for the Xbox One itself, my statistics across the two years make for good reading with a total of 2172 achievements, 90,033 TA points and a huge haul of 50,405 G.
