2014 objectives
Written by MetalHead84 on 2014-01-27 13:05:19

New year (well since about a month) so new gaming objectives.
Last year I didn't played a lot, so I have reach none of my objectives, also I think they were a bit high.
Here's what I plan for 2014 :
Playstation Network : Be at 1500 trophies (right now I'm at 1279)
Xbox : Try to be at 15 500 GS (right now I'm at around 14300)

I hope that I will be able to reach those goal, at least they seem a little bit easier than the one I have set up last year

My impressions of the PS4
Written by MetalHead84 on 2013-11-18 13:37:02

Hope that everyone of us that got a PS4 enjoy it so far. On my side I really enjoy it, sure I had some problem with Battlefield 4 but that's mostly a game problem than a console one.

The console is really fast, I have read that it was slow to open, but on my side I think it's opening faster than the PS3, switching in the menu or accessing/browsing the PS Store is also really fast. Installing game, and I mean real big game like Battlefield 4 and Call Of Duty: Ghost take about 1-2 minutes and it start automatically once you put the disk in, same thing for the updates. The little ambiant song is a nice addition while you wait for a download or can't decide which game you want to play.

Saturday and sunday it seems the What's New section was taking down, so I didn't had the chance to really test it, also I think I only have one friend that got a PS4 (plus my girlfriend who play on mine) so I cannot see what it looks like when they unlock trophies, post videos and so on.

The controller is really awesome, feel comfortable from the first second that I hold it in my hand, I think that everything is perfect on it and will not change anything, but I would like to test more the touch pad.
The headset include with it is workly correctly but feel a little bit uncomfortable after a while, I will need to try to buy a wire to connect my TB PX5 to the controller, but for now the quality is ok.

Now for the game, I only played 3 of them, Battlefield 4 (some MP and one SP mission), Call Of Duty : Ghost (only in MP) and Contrast (a free game with PS+) and the graphics are what you would expect for a next-gen console, really beautiful.

The only cons I have are mostly stuff that might be added through an update, you cannot sort your trophies in the order you want, you cannot stop a download to prioritize another one and you can't see since how long one of your friend is offline, as you can see not a big deal. Also the fast that you can't have a media server as of now is a pain as I was using my PS3 to stream some video from my laptop that is upstairs, but I don't do that really often and Sony is looking to add that back.

I really like the console as you have probably notice, for the price compare to the XOne or the last gen, it's really a must buy for any gamers. Feel free to add me if you want, my PSN is PunkMetal

Preparing for PS4
Written by MetalHead84 on 2013-11-08 08:39:06

I just add the stats section for the PS4, there's already a game (Call Of Duty : Ghost) which is the game I have pre-order with the console.
Once it's out I might buy Killzone and perhaps Knack.

Less than 15 days
Written by MetalHead84 on 2013-10-31 07:37:52

Yep, just 15 days left before the release of the PS4 in NA. I had confirmation that I can take the day off at my job so I really hope that I will receive the console on time, and not have to wait till the week after to receive it. Once I receive it my plans are to hook it up, play a little bit, then wait for the evening when my son is sleeping to play a bit more. With the console I will have Call Of Duty : Ghost and I plan on buying Killzone Shadow Fall, so feel free to add me to play some game, PSN : PunkMetal

November 15 is really far
Written by MetalHead84 on 2013-08-24 09:29:23

As most of you probably already know, the release date for the Playstation 4 is November 15. Yesterday I just decide to pre-order it, so it seems that a lot of day have been added to the calendar, and that date can't come soon enough. I have pick up the bundle on ebgames.ca with a second controller and Call Of Duty Ghost, but at the release date I might pick up Battlefield 4 and probably Watch Dogs.

First trophy in a long time
Written by MetalHead84 on 2013-07-11 06:48:48

Second 1000/1000
Written by MetalHead84 on 2013-07-10 06:43:28

Yesterday I got my second game with 1000/1000gs, with Assassin's Creed. Not the hardest game but I was afraid to miss some achievements (like the one for memory glitch as according to a guide your supose to have it by the 8th assassination and I got it really at the end, and also the one to kill every target with a full DNA bar). I have already played that game back when it was release on PS3, and this time I think I have like it more, probably because I have play it on a longer period.

2013 goal update
Written by MetalHead84 on 2013-06-03 07:09:39

Since you have probably notice, I didn't post that much since the beginning of 2013. In the early months I had a different work schedule, so I didn't had that much time to play on the evening, then came April and a better weather so I'm mostly outside.
So, it bring me back on my goal for 2013, I was aiming to be at 16000 GS, and I'm not even at 12000, in fact I only got around 450GS since the beginning of the year. I don't expect to reach my goal, as I have a lot of thing to do this summer, fishing, ATV ride, we will start camping and so on, but I will try to do my best to get as close as my goal.

2013 goal
Written by MetalHead84 on 2013-01-28 10:00:32

Here's my goal for 2013.
For the Xbox360 I will aim for 16 000 GS (currently around 11 500).
For PS3, that will be to at least play a couple of game, as I didn't use it in around 1 year in a half.
In the boardgames department, we got a new one, which is Stone Age, I have already played that one on yucata, it was ok but my girlfriend really like it, so I decide to buy it, and it's actually more fun to play it in real.

Thank you EPIC
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-11-22 08:22:51

Yesterday I was looking for informations if there was new events for Gears Of War 3, when I saw on a forum that they have decide to give everybody 29 of the 30 events for the medal. I decide to go try to play the new one and it effectively gave me 30/30 for the event so I got that achievement and the one to get at least one Onyx medal. I didn't look why they have decide to do that, but it's great to not have to play every weekend in the hope of getting a new event badge. Gears Of War 3
Award Winning Tactics - Earn at least one Onyx medal. - 25GS
Socialite - Earn the Onyx "War Supporter" medal. - 70GS

Fable: The Journey
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-11-20 08:23:07

Yesterday I have finish the story mode in Fable: The Journey, the game itself wasn't that hard and it wasn't that long to complete only the main story. Now I need to finish the arcade mode which I think will be a bit harder to get gold on all level.
I also need to play 16 hours of multiplayer in Halo 4 before the end of the month to be at 35 hours and get 100 Microsoft Point. For those who don't know it's a challenge for members of the Rewards Program, and it's giving player some microsoft point depending of the number of hours they play Halo 4 this month. At first I was aiming to get to 70 hours (300 MSP) but lower that to 35.

2 new games
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-10-10 07:18:06

I wasn't suppose to buy new games in a couple of months, but yesterday I tried 2 demos and they were fun, so I decide to buy those 2 games, which are Fable The Journey and XCOM : Enemy Unknown. So far I have only played XCOM and it's really good, it's a turn-base strategy game, it reminds me a lot of Valkyria Chronicles on the PS3 with a different settings. Sure there's not at much action as in a FPS but you need to think more to be able to complete the missions.

GoW2 almost finish
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-09-07 08:44:08

Just reach Act 5 in GoW2 in Hardcore, I will probably take a break after it's complete and play on Insane one day when I will have less game unplayed. I also played around 20-30 minutes of L.A. Noire, so far it seems ok, I hope the case will get harder later in the game, cause when you are near a clue, the controller will shake so you know there's something.
I have also buy Fable 2 with all the DLC, will try to finish it before I play the third one.
And in the next week there's a couple of new game coming out that I will probably buy on release date, NHl 13 (will be my first hockey game since NHL09) and Borderlands 2.

Easy 200
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-09-05 08:48:26

If you want an easy 200GS you should get Harm's Way, you can easily get all achievements in 10 minutes. I had this game since I got my xbox but never played it. I was looking at an achievement guide on xbox360achievements.org and saw that it should be easy. I try to join an online game since I was suspecting that there will be 0 people online, but I got lucky and join a game that someone was hosting and got that achievement (you don't even have to play the game, just join a lobby), and after 10 minutes I had all 12 achievements.
The game is a mix of racing and tower defense, you play in team of 2, one who drive the car and get power-up and a second player that is in a turret and try to shoot the other drivers, pretty simple.
Harm's Way
Turret Downgrade - Activate a turret downgrade powerup - 10GS
Turret Takeover - Shoot and takeover an enemy turret - 30GS
Affiliation - Join a multiplayer game for the first time - 10GS
Justin Carpenter Achievement - Just look at credits - 10GS
First Blood - Wreck an opponent as a shooter - 20GS

Restarting of GoW2
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-08-30 07:31:53

When I first got my Xbox it had GoW2 include with, I have started the single player back then, but GoW3 came out and I stop playing, since it was almost a year ago, I decide to restart everything since the beginning (I was only in the middle of Act 2). So far it's way easier than the first one, I mostly only die because of mistake, hope that insane will be as easy as that.

Exophase gamercard stats
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-08-27 15:14:59

Here's how I currently rank on http://exophase.com/ gamercard generator.
For the Xbox 360 I'm at Global Rank: 63027 of 108705.
And for the Playstation 3 I'm at Global Rank : 11964 of 82967 and Territory Rank (Canada): 485.
Sure it's not every player in the world, but that's impressive to see that number for PS3, and knowing I didn't get any trophies for about 1 year now.

GoW now complete
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-08-27 08:43:43

Yesterday I was able to finish GoW on the Insane difficulty (with the help of my girlfriend to get past RAAM). If you hears that it was hard to kill RAAM on Insane difficulty, you can do X10 on that. It took me around 5 hours of constant restart to be able to beat it (3 alone and 2 with my girlfriend). So now I will probably finish GoW2 on hardcore than start it again on Insane, hope this one is a bit easier (well, no hard end-boss).

Starting Insane
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-08-21 08:29:33

In the last days I was playing on Insane difficulty of Gears Of War. Not as hard as I have first thought, most of the time you can just be in cover and the AI will shoot the Locust in no times. I might start either Fallout 3 or L.A. Noire soon as I don't like to play the same game for a long time.

New router on it's way
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-08-16 13:48:42

Today I had to order a new router as I was having a lot of trouble with my old linksys WRT54G (around 6 years old), every time I was solving a problem, a new one was happening.
At first when my friends who lives with us was streaming a video from his laptop to his xbox, the router was loosing the connection to the internet, the wireless was ok but no way to browse. I manage to solve it by changing a couple of settings, then I notice that every time I was on my xbox, if my friend turn his xbox on, it will disconnect me from Live. Manage to solve that by removing my static IP in the xbox, but after that we were getting disconnect every 15 minutes or so, solve that too by correcting some settings in the port triggering.
And yesterday evening I notice that the internet was really slow, decide to make a speedtest, getting a ping of 1400ms and download speed of 0.77 mbps, reset the router and was fine for around 15-20 minutes before it start being slow again.
My friend had his own router so I plug it to the modem and everything was working fine until I got to bed yesterday evening.
I was already looking at some router on the internet because of all the other problem, so this morning I decide to order a brand new dlink DIR-655 router since the price was not that high (59,99$ on amazon.ca) and the review were really good, specially for connecting 2 xbox, I should receive it next week and I hope it will be running fine.

Vacation over
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-08-13 12:51:31

My 2 weeks vacation is now over, so I will probably have more time to update my blog, also we have finish to move in our new house, which will let me more time to play.
I got some new games last week and I will probably rush to finish Gow 1 and 2 story mode before starting those games, which are L.A. Noire and Fallout 3 (which is not that new for me since I have it on PS3, but it was the GOTY edition with all the DLC, so I will try to sell my PS3 version).
So stay tuned for more updates in the next days/week

Never thought I'd got this achievement
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-06-08 08:44:24

Since last week I have start playing Battlefield 3 again, and I have notice that I was missing about 6-7 ribbons. Usually I don't really care about ribbons (in Bad Company 1-2 on PS3 I didn't get the ribbons related trophies), but since I wasn't missing that much I decide to give it a try, and yesterday I was able to finally get my 2 missing ribbons (defend 2 MCOM and get 2 kills with stationary weapons), sure my K/D went down a bit (from 1.05 to 1.02) but I will be able to get that up, and I'm planning on buying the Premium so I will be able to reset my stats.
Next one will be to reach level 45, currently I'm at 27.

Second 200GS
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-06-01 07:15:45

Yesterday I was able to finish my second arcade game, with Contra.
The game is good, but I really prefer the NES version, as this one is a little bit shorter.
I also played some game of Battlefield 3, I think I didn't touch that game since last december, it was a little bit hard at first but still always fun.

2012 goal update
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-05-31 15:47:17

I didn't update you with my achievements and goal for 2012 since a long time, so here's a little update.

Xbox 360
My goal was to get 20 000, since I didn't play that much since 2 months and that I won't play that much in the next month (I'm moving this summer) I decide to lower the objectives to 12 500GS. So far I'm at 6950.
As for the % of achievements the objectives is still 33,3% and I'm currently at 30,9%, so I'm not that far.Once I achieve that one, I might change it for 44%.

Playstation 3
Goal is still 1250 trophies, but I still didn't play any games on the PS3 in 2012.

Latest boardgame buy
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-03-29 09:04:56

As you probably notice I didn't put any videogame updates in a while, it's mostly due to the fact that I'm mostly playing boardgame lately and I have buy quite a lot (around 7 in the last month and a half). Just last week I got 3 new one so I decide to make a real post about that.




The reason I went to my local game store was mainly to get Warhammer : Invasion and perhaps World Without End. Both game where still there and I notice the Gears Of War boardgame, the price was a bit high (99,99$) but the review of the game that I have read earlier and the fact that it can be played solo made me buy it.




So far I mostly play Gears Of War (around 15 times the first mission in solo) and it really feels like the video game (it's even harder) your life is limited to the number of card in your hand (that you also use to take action) and after every turn, the locust got a turn and it's not long before they all goes in the same area and attack you.
I have also played a couple of game of World Without End with my girlfriend. You play a card that let every one collect a ressource/money/victory point and some events, then you play a card from your end to either collect another ressources or help to the building of some structures around the board. But after 3 games, there was not a time where I had a lot of one type of ressources, so you need to be really careful.
For Warhammer: Invasion we just had the time to play a short game, so I can't really give my opinion.
When I will have more experience with those game I will write full review of them. But for now, if you like both board and video game, you should take a look at Gears Of War.

Another month over
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-03-01 07:23:18

So february is now over, and it was my best month for GS, but it could have been better. I have start the month with a lot of GS every day, but at the end I didn't play that much so I had a lot of day with 0.
For my goal for 2012, I'm now at 13 685GS of my goal of 20 000GS. I need to average 1368GS every month, and so far I'm a little bit under 1000GS by month, so I need to work hard to achieve that.

First board game entry
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-02-27 12:34:50

As I have write in the first entry of the blog, I also like boardgames, and there will be some infos about my other hobby, so here's the first one.
Last weekend I decide to go check at the local gamestore of my town if there's any new boardgames. In the windows there was a poster advising a game night, for that evening.
That was my first experience of a game night with stranger (I have host some game night with some friends at my place), and it was a great night. Me and my girlfriend sat with 3 other guy and the manager's girlfriend to play a game of 7 Wonders (great game) and a game of Mord Im Arosa, a really strange game involving a tower and cube that you throw trought a hole in the tower, and you need to listen on which floor the cube end to find "clue" about a murder.
The afternoon I also buy the Game of Throne LCG and I can't wait to play it. Stay tuned for more boardgame blog in the next weeks.

1 act complete
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-02-23 08:47:10

Yesterday I was able to finish the first act in Gears Of War. I don't play that much lately, I feel so tired in the evening, so I average around 1h00 of playtime instead of the usual 2h00.
A coworker bring me The Chronicles Of Riddick, but reading the achievements guide and the forum on xbox360achievements.com it seems almost impossible to complete at 100%, so I might just try the game on a secondary account and see what the game looks like.

Fastest 12 achievements
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-02-01 07:35:05

So I start playing Puss in Boots, and after only 20-30 minutes I have unlock 12 achievements without even trying for those. If you like kinect games you should like that one. The moves are not too hard to do (mainly striking with a "sword", walking, jumping and playing guitar) and it respond very well. The only thing I didn't like (I will need to check in the option) is that you need to play with your right hand for the sword, so as a lefty, my right arm got tired after only 2 levels.

Got a new game
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-01-31 13:40:15

I just got a late christmas gift from my brother-in-law. He gives to me and my girlfriend the Puss In Boots, so you might see a lot of new achievement from that game. Didn't had the chance to play it now, but might gives it a try tonight.
Also I will take a break from online in GoW3, I might try to get some achievement with other people (mostly co-op one and some easy online) but I won't play alone for a while, I really enjoy the singleplayer but online I have too much difficulty.

Level 50!
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-01-26 08:10:15

Yesterday I was able to get to level 50 in Gears Of War 3, it seems that it took me forever to level up in the last days. I just can't understand how people can already be at their second re-up in just one week, and by that time I went from 44 to 50.

Kingdoms of Amalur impression
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-01-24 07:35:43

I have try the demo of Kingdoms Of Amalur for about 30 minutes, so here's my first impressions.
I really wanted to know more about the game since I have learn that R.A. Salvatore write the story. I didn't had the time to finish the demo, and since it's just a demo, it's sure that we don't see a lot of the story.
For the game itself, it reminds me of a mix of Fable III (for the graphics) with Dungeon Siege 3 and D&D Daggerdale (for the gameplay) with some elements of the Dragon Ages series.
I have read a lot of people saying they have see a lot of bugs, for my part I didn't see any.
I had a somewhat good time playing the demo, but I don't think it's enough to buy it as soon as it release, but I will wait for a price drop (mostly since there's no online play).
If you like RPG you should give it a try, but don't expect something bigger than Skyrim.

Finally got into an online game
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-01-20 10:25:56

I finally got into an online game of Gears Of War 2 while I was doing some cleaning in the house, I let the game join (which took about 10 minutes) and I was idle in the game for 5-10 minutes but we manage to win it. I don't really care about the other game type, so I don't know if I will try them for now.

First multi achivement day in almost 2 week
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-01-19 09:27:01

With 3 achievements yesterday, it's my first day with more then 1 achievement in 10 days. I have decide to give up on having the online achievements in Gears Of War 2 since it's so hard to get in a game, I'm planing on getting the Triple Pack, so perhaps that with the DLC it will be easier to get in a game.

Not a really good week
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-01-12 07:25:05

So far I only got one achievement in Gears Of War 2, so I didn't progress a lot this week. It's sure that I was playing game with harder or time consuming achievement (online one in Gears Of War 3, and I didn't play that long with Skyrim so I unlock nothing) but anyway I don't have any game in mind, so I can take my time to reach my goal of having 33% of the achievements.

Achievements/Trophies goal for 2012
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-01-09 14:01:32

Here's some goal that I want to achieve for this year :
Xbox 360
Total number of GS : 20 000 (4375 at the beginning of the year)
% of achievement : 33,3% (will be an updatable goal)

Playstation 3
Total number of trophies : 1250 (1146 at the beginning of the year)

I didn't set a too high goal for PS3 since I don't play that much, but at least it will kept me playing with it.
For the % of achievements, I got so many game in a small amount of time, so until I get to 33,3% (1/3 of the total number of achievement) I don't buy any new game, once it's achieve I think to update it to 50% which is close to what I have on the PS3 (56%).

Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-01-09 07:43:20

I manage to finish the campaign in Gears Of War 3, which is by far one of the best story in a video game that I have play. Even if it's not really your kind of shooter, you should give this game a try, I use to prefer "normal" shooter, like COD or Battlefield, but GoW3 grow up in me and it becomes my favorites shooter.

Holidays are over!
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-01-04 15:43:06

Hope you all have great holidays and good times for gaming. Since the holidays are over, I will update the blog more often. For now I won't list all the achievement I got (I got Tropico 4 as a gift last friday, and got 23 achievements, so that will be long to list :p) but I will keep you up to date.
For 2012 my first objective is to reach 33% total for the xbox achievements. So far I have 277 of 1108, for 25%. I know it's not that high, but I just got the xbox in september, got 7 games with it and I have buy so many games before christmas ( in fact I'm at 28 games) so that's why I want to get my % higher.
I will also try to make some review of the games I'm currently playing, and take some pictures of my gaming collection and gear.

Saddest moment in a video game
Written by MetalHead84 on 2011-12-22 07:43:22

I was continuing the story mode in Gears Of War and I came across the saddest moment I ever seen in a video game. I won't spoil anything, but what happen at the end of chapter 3 is really sad, and the look they put in the face of Marcus really help that sentiment.

News Gears Of War 3 DLC
Written by MetalHead84 on 2011-12-21 14:06:37

A new Gears Of War 3 DLC will be available Jan 17th for 800 MSP (free to those who have the season pass).
Called Fenix Rising, the DLC will includes new maps, new characters skins and a new XP system.
There will be 5 new maps, all from the history of series. Academy is set in the military school Marcus was destined to attend, but defied tradition by skipping. Anvil takes place in the destroyed fortress of Anvegad, while Depths is where Marcus' dad, Adam Fenix, was held captive. Escalation takes place in and around the Fenix household and The Slab is the prison that Dom broke Marcus out of way back in Gears 1. All five of the maps are playable across Versus Multiplayer, Horde and Beast Mode.
The skins offer are spread across COG and Locust designs. The pack offers up Recruit Clayton, Thrashball Cole, Savage Marauder and Savage Kantus character models.
The new XP system will let players to effectively "Prestige" once they hit level 100. Chose to do this and your experience and rank will be reset and your rank icon colour will change. This is possible up to three times, moving from Bronze to Red, Green and then Gold.
Each Prestige level (Epic are calling it "Re-up") after Bronze also awards the player an exclusive, custom weapon skin. These are: Re-Up Plasma – Animated flowing plasma in gold, Re-Up Omen – Shiny, red Omen, Re-Up Electric – Animated, golden electric shocks.

Skyrim, or how to get out of the real life
Written by MetalHead84 on 2011-12-20 10:49:30

Got a lot a bad news yesterday, at least I had Skyrim to play to help getting out of the "reality". I just have 2h30 of playtime so far, but it seems that I have done almost nothing except walking around just looking every where and dreaming what it would be to leave in that kind of world. Anyway, I manage to get 2 new achievements, but it seems that I don't care that much about achievements in that game, I just want to play and do as much as I can.

Welcome!
Written by MetalHead84 on 2011-12-13 08:34:35

First of all, welcome and thank you for taking time to visit my blog (by the way it's my first attempt at a blog). I have decide to create this blog to talk about my favorites hobby, video game. Here I will post stuff about most of the game I like (so if your favorite game are not here, it's perhaps because I don't play that game) and about my achievements/trophies progress. Since I only have my xbox360 since 2 months, I mostly play with it (in fact since I have it I didn't play with my ps3, but that will perhaps change soon), so for now, that stats will be base on the xbox360.
It can happen that I talk about another hobby, not related to video game, but an older form of game, which is boardgame.
Now a bit about me, I come from Val d'Or, a town in nortwestern part of Quebec (french is my main language, but I have decide to make the blog in english to have more visitor, so you can perhaps see some english error, just let me know if you happen to see some), I'm 27 years old, I have a girlfriend and a 17 months boy. Other then gaming I like to listen music (metal/punk/rock), watching tv, reading and hunting/fishing.
As it's my first blog, feel free to give me your comment (either in the comment section or by email, gameblog@pponline.ca, and again, thank you for visiting my blog.
