2013-10-31 - Adera time

Decided to fire up Adera again today. Managed to get couple of achievements in this game. 5 to precise worth 45G.

Also played with no gain in GS or achievements 2 games: LEGO Star Wars II and Microsoft Flight

2013-10-31 - Time to something really old

Time to play something very old ... Went through my old games and decided to have another go with LEGO Star Wars II.

This game has been unused since summer 2009... more than 4 years. Time sure does fly...

It is one of many games that I have owned for ages, but somehow stopped playing it. As you see from the achievement history - I got last achievement in June 2009 and one before that in April 2008.

Too bad I have lost the save game for this and have to start all over from very beginning. The things we do for achievements, eh? :)

2013-10-30 - Borderlands 2 - 100%

Now it is done. Finished Borderlands 2 today and got the last 3 achievements. So it took me exactly 3 months to get from first achievement to the last. :)

2013-10-29 - Borderlands 2, the end is near

The end of BL2 is near for me, I have got almost all achievements in it.

Got one more today so I am 3 achievements short from 100% completion.

When doing my daily AlphaJax moves, this baby just popped up on its own. :)

Sadly, the last 3 achievements are quite tricky and I may need to boost them with someone, as they might be quite hard or impossible to obtain in normal games with random opponents.

2013-10-28 - Borderlands 2 grinding

I am in the very end of BL2 and obtaining its achievements. Spent some time in it grinding for the 2 achievements I got today.

In the Hammerlock's Hunt DLC I had to run around and kill few specific animals that only spawn in some specific areas on random intervals and not so commonly. Well, Google is our friend and I found instructions, what areas to check, and then do the classical "load your save game, run around, kill animals, save, quite and repeat".

The "Challenge Accepted" achievement was even more bizarre. For it to be unlocked, you have to have "Completed level 1 of all non-level-specific challenges with a single character". The problem is that 2 of the level 1 challenges become only available after you get level 5 in two other challenges. I was stuck of getting 750 point blank kills with shotguns, as it just is not my gaming style. I am more sneaky sniper kind of guy who uses turrets or grenades or rocket launcher to get rid of enemies form distance.

NB, there are some BL2 shift codes available.

Xbox 360 SHiFT Code for 3 Golden Keys in Borderlands 2:
W3KTB-3BH5T-9R93F-WRB3B-SZBZR [Active through 10/29]

Then I played a little of Jetpack Joyride, but got no achievements there. Last but not least, did my "daily" moves in Win 8 AlphaJax and got one easy (just time consuming) achievement there.

2013-10-27 - Borderlandholism day

Today was crazy day, did quite long Borderlands 2 gaming session. Did many many achievements, some on my own, some with help of friends. :)

So ... I got 8 achievements worth total of 245G.

Saturday 26 October 2013

2013-10-26 - Borderland 2 time

What a chill day. Had some good times with my family and played some Borderlands 2 in the evening.

Got 2 achievements from 2 different DLC-s, but again - for some reason claims one achievement I obtained tomorrow.

Friday 25 October 2013

2013-10-25 - Grinding in GTA

Today was a grinding day in GTA IV.

Got 2 achievements done worth 25 points:

Managed also to get one "random" achievement in Ascend: Hand of Kul. And by random I mean that there is nothing much you can do about it - you just have to wait until your ascended champion has found someone who it was able to bead up during your absence. I just logged in and POP, came the achievement. :)

Also played the web based Wordament but still have not got the last achievement. :(

2013-10-24 - Back to Borderlands

Busy day, not much time for gaming. Never the less - managed to spend some time with Borderlands 2 and finish the Tiny Tina DLC main quest. Some sidequest still in works:

Wednesday 23 October 2013

2013-10-23 - Kinda slow

Not much happened today in gamig sense. I did some grinding in Wordament for Windows 8 and bagged one achievement: Sore fingers - (Completed 100 rounds).

Also during the relative short gaming sessioon with Borderlands 2 - got one achievement:

Tuesday 22 October 2013

2013-10-22 - Borderlands 2

Another small Update.

Besides finishing the Wordament for IOS today and getting the last achievement unlocked, I also played Borderlands 2 a little and got one achievement in the Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep DLC.


2013-10-22 - Wordament IOS - 100%

Today I reached 100% completion on IOS version of Wordament.

Last one was bit boring, as it was the grinding achievement - Sore fingers (Completed 100 rounds).
For some reason none of the achievements on this IOS game have achievement obtaining dates listed in the site. Same goes with last played date what is incorrect.

Monday 21 October 2013

2013-10-21 - Day of Wordament

Today can be definitely named as Day of Wordament. First because I spent some time researching it, and some time playing it on both iPad and the web based version.

Got all 9 achievements in one day, but for some reason claims I got them on 20th. Maybe its timezone issue and it was still 20th in MS server land, when it was already 21st in my location ! :)

As far as I know it is unique game - ONLY game that you can play it on 5 different platforms: Xbox 360, Windows 8, Windows phone, Apple IOS and Android devices ... and gain different achievements on every platform.

I played today Wordament also on my iPad and got 2 achievements on it, but the site / activity page shows them with no date and last played date is probably the day I first played it: "LAST PLAYED 25/02/2013". Actually none of the IOS achievements have no dates on them. Strange.

I presume I will need to send email to Microsoft and suggest them to fix the time issue on IOS Wordament if possible and rename it on the site. Now it shows me I have 3 Wordaments there all with different amount of achievements: - LAST PLAYED 18/10/2013 - 70/200 - This is the Windows 8 version of the game. - LAST PLAYED 21/10/2013 -  45/ 50 - This is the web-based game - LAST PLAYED 25/02/2013 - 45/ 50 - This is the IOS version

There is also an Android version, but for some reason my phone is not compatible with it. And Windows Phone version - I dont own such phone.

I also played Team Crossword and got 2 achievements there:

Besides that I did my daily moves in AlphaJax and tried out 2 web based but no achievement giving games: Zuma's Revenge and Bejeweled 3.

Busy day ahead tomorrow, in the evening, perhaps some new achievements in Borderlands 2. :)

Sunday 20 October 2013

2013-10-20 - Real life keeps me busy

Not much gaming done last few days. I did upgrade my desktop computer yesterday from Win 7 to Win 8 - I only did my "daily" AplhaJax moves in the game but got no achievements (The easy ones I already have got, I still need to do the hard and time consuming ones).

Thursday 17 October 2013

2013-10-17 - Borderlands 2 GOTY has landed

Yes yess yesss! BL2 GOTY (Game of the year) edition is finally here.

Did not have much time to play it, but managed to get 2 achievements in the Tiny Tina DLC:

Oddly enough you don't see the GOTY even existing when you check out site, but if you are in Europe, you can get it from some retailers ... for example.

Did my usual daily moves in AlphaJax and managed to kill the final boss in Ascend: Hand of Kul. It was not that hard actually - probably because I had just ascended and had relatively good gear for my low level character. And also because I tend to rely more on spells than on my sword (I have invested a lot of souls in upgrading the spells I have).

Wednesday 16 October 2013

2013-10-16 - Few new games

Downloaded today Halo 3, as it is the free game of the second half of October, but not sure when I will play it - my plan for upcoming games includes the latest DLC-s of Borderlands 2 GOTY - I will be spending some time again in that game, over the upcoming weekend. :)

And, when we are in subject of downloading games - Battlestations Pacific has very good deal now in Xbox - regular price is 24.99 Euro, but now I got it for 4.99 (gold members only deal). It would be just stuped not to buy it at that price, as the used copies cost around 20 euro on ebay. There is similar discount is for Battlestations Midway, but that game I already have as a DVD version.

So ... About gaming - today I got 2 achievements worth 30 points in Ascend: Hand of Kul. Also played AlphaJax, but no new achievements there.

Tuesday 15 October 2013

2013-10-15 - GTA IV - long time no see

While everyone is rambling about GTA V - I decided to revisit its older brother - GTA IV, in what I had many achievements I still have not achieved.

To my big surprise, last achievement in GTA IV was from May 2010!!!

Anyway... I managed to do 3 achievements worth 150 points, and plan to do some more in few upcoming days.


I also played a bit of Ascend: Hand of Kul, but I got no achievements on it...

I am quite close to revealing all the Lores (only 2 unread) so I expect to get at least the "Highlands Scholar" achievement tomorrow or day after.

Monday 14 October 2013

2013-10-14 - Quite slow day again

Another slow day.

Played only 2 games: AlphaJax on Windows 8 and Ascend: Hand of Kul on Xbox 360.

No achievements in AlphaJax but managed to get one in Ascend: Hand of Kul

Sunday 13 October 2013

2013-10-13 - fun weekend and achievements from the future

This weekend was fun in real life and not so much in the Xbox gaming world.

We went out with friends and stayed in one nice cosy countryside pub till 3AM.

So to give quick feedback on the gaming - all I played over weekend was Jetpack Joyride, Ascend: Hand of Kul and AlphaJax.

Got no achievements in Ascend: Hand of Kul, but managed to get one achievement in AlphaJax on Saturday and one in Jetpack Joyride today. :)

Oddly enough, when taking the screenshot, I see I have achievement from the future ... The "last played" of the game says 13th but I got the achievement is from 14th October. How come? :)

Friday 11 October 2013

2013-10-11 - Someone wants my penis!

Yes, you did read it correctly, someone is interested about my penis.

It is the truth and I got images to prove it! Got following message on XBL today:

Unfortunately (or fortunately) my penis is already "taken" by my wife with unlimited and exclusive usage rights. :) ... but if you have a spare one, please do get in touch with this Im Jono person through XBL! :P

Now, gaming wize not much happened today. Played only 3 games: AlphaJax, Clash of Heroes and Ascend: Hand of Kul.

Out of those 3 games got only 1 achievement worth 5G in Ascend:

Thursday 10 October 2013

2013-10-10 - Being bad in Hand of Kul

Today I was a "bad boy" in Hand of Kul - gained 3 achievements worth 30 points by doing nasty things to other players :P I hope I did not make any long lasting enemies!

Also launched Borderlands 2 for 5 minutes- just to enter a free Shift code - 5J5JT-TFJHF-99TC6-5XBJJ-K9XHK that I got from - - it gives you 3 golden keys. Not sure how long this code lasts, may have been timed out by time you try it.

Last but least - did my daily moves in AlphaJax and got 2 new achievements. :)

Wednesday 9 October 2013

2013-10-09 - another slow day

Today had only little time to play, so no achievements - only little progress in story in Ascend: Hand of Kul.

Tuesday 8 October 2013

2013-10-08 - Got my hands on Clash of Heroes

As you could see from my previous post, I had some issues with redeeming my Gold access code in XBL, but when it got sorted, off I went and downloaded this months "free for Gold members" game called "Clash of Heroes".

Did not play it for too long but so far I liked what I saw. Its turn based strategy and it gives you time to think and plan your moves (at least in single player / story mode). So it involves skills and luck, as you have no way to control, what kind of units you get in battle and in what order.

So far got 1 achievement in it:

Also got 2 achievements worth 20G in Win 8 Game Jetpack Joyride:

And last but not least - 15G in AlphaJax.

Spooky Microsoft.

I tried redeeming an XBL live code today but it failed from console and from website. Got error 80150101.

Microsoft's own error explanation page was not very helpful: Error 80150101 occurs when you try to download content from Xbox Live.

I was thinking maybe I got scammed at eBay and I maybe got bad code from the seller ... I was doubting that, as the same seller has provided reliable service in past.

I wanted to contact MS support to look into this, when I found out at their support page, that it is not me, it is them. They are having major problem with accounts on different platforms:

So I am stuck being free member for now. :(

Update - 90 min later, the account is fixed, 3 months of gold status has appeared!!!

Just finished downloading Might & Magic Clash of Heroes (free for Gold Members from 1st till 14th October - regular price €14.39) and its free add-on: "M&M Clash of Heroes Advanced opponents!" :)

2013-10-07 - Slow day

Today was quite a slow day. Bought a new 3 month Xbox Live gold card, but did not play much on console.
  • Did my daily moves in AlphaJax.
  • Tried Doritos Crash Course for few minutes, but then had to leave the house.
  • Spent maybe 30 minutes to get closer to 1000 points in Tron.
  • Did few races and spent maybe another 30 minutes in IMPORT TUNER CHALLENGE

2013-10-05 - Ascend: Hand of Kul

Got my hands on this new and free to play game today.

First impressions are pretty good! I like it. Reminds me a bit of Fable, as it involves a lot of running around in mystical world and battling enemies with swords and magic.

Got 125 achievements during first day.

Friday 4 October 2013

2013-10-04 - Tron and WWE day

Today was quite busy day achievement-wise, I did score 30 easy points in WWE 12 and whopping 280G in Tron: Evolution.

I might shelve Tron for a while now as the only achievement left to do there is the "Evolved User" (Completed the game on the "Insane" difficulty level without changing the setting.) one ... But the downside of this achievement is that you can only select "Insane" after you have completed in on "Hard".

2013-10-03 - What a busy day

Today was quite busy day.

And that's both in life in and outside of Xbox - I had couple of recruiters contacting me with possible job offers. Nice if something good emerges from it.

Gaming wise I got multiple achievements in multiple games:

I played 5 different games, and got achievements in 4 of them. :)

30G in AlphaJax (Win 8)
30G in TC's RainbowSix Vegas
15G in Jetpack Joyride (Win 8)
0 G in Team Crossword (Win 8)
80G in Tron: Evolution

Not bad, eh? :)

2013-10-02 - WWE '12

Not much gaming done last few days... Life outside home has kept me busy. Managed to get one new achievement in WWE '12 today:
