New year, new goals
Written by MetalHead84 on 2016-01-04 13:08:12

So 2015 is behind us, I hope I will play more in 2016.
Boardgames side it was decent, but for videogames I had a slow start, with only 20 trophies at the half of the year. I manage to cross 200 trophies thank to a lot of new game at the end of the summer.

Now here's some goal for 2016 :
Trophies : to have 300 trophies, which will bring my total to 2101. I have some unplayed game (The Last Of Us, the collection of Uncharted that I have received for christmas), also some upcoming game, so I'm confident that I will achieve it.
For boardgames, I want to reach 300 plays, right now I'm at 230, I also got a couple of new boardgames, and I have more friends that want to play, so that will help.

Happy gaming in 2016!

500th PS4 trophies
Written by MetalHead84 on 2015-09-30 08:12:53

2 days ago, I got my 500th trophies on the PS4.
It was on Dying Light.
I hope the next 500 will take me less time, but with more game coming out, that will probably be easier.

A couple of weeks ago, I have post that I will start streaming, and needed to make a schedule for that.
So, if everything is going well, I might be streaming on Monday and Wednesday, from 9PM to 11PM, and perhaps on Friday for the same timeframe.
If I'm doing it on Friday it will mostly be on NHL for a couple of weeks, as I'm playing with some friends, the 2 other days will be different games.

Twitch streaming
Written by MetalHead84 on 2015-08-19 15:31:25

I recently start to stream on Twitch, and will shortly add a section about this on the page.
For a while I will stream Dying Light, Ironclad Tactics and some other game when I feel like playing something else.
Since my girlfriend is not working yet (parental leave), I don't turn on my mic, but most of the time I have my laptop near me, so if you ask me questions, I will answer on the chat. Next month I should have my mic on, but be advise that I have a big accent, being a french guy.
I'm usually streaming from 9h30PM to 11h00PM during week days, and a little bit later during weekend.
If you want to follow me, here's the link : Twitch - MetalHead1784
I don't have a lot of upload speed (1 mbps), and I'm currently testing it, so if you see something wrong, just let me know

There's not just trophy in the game world
Written by MetalHead84 on 2014-12-23 09:39:28

As the title say, there's not just trophy for a reason to game. Sure with a playstation or an xbox, that's an incitive to get the most out of a game, mostly when you aim for a platinum or 1000gs.
Since a couple of months I was looking to buy a Wii U, but wasn't able to decide if it was worth it or no. Last weekend I decide to buy it, and so far I really like it even if there no trophy/achievement.
It's really fun to sit in familly and play some relax game, instead of mostly focusing on achieving everything in a game.
I'm also trying to get my 4 years old son to play, and he seems to like the Gamepag a lot.
I will still hunt for trophy on the PS4/Ps3, but perhaps a little bit more as we have this new console.
Feel free to add me to your Nintendo Network, MetalHead1784.

1500 trophies
Written by MetalHead84 on 2014-10-15 09:10:40

I have set a new milestone a couple of days ago, I have reach the mark of 1500 trophies.
It was a trophy from Pix The Cat, a little fun game and it's free for this month if you are a member of PS Plus.
That also means I have reach my goal for this year, what help me is that on most of my vacation this summer and last week it was raining almost all the time, so I had a lot of play time.

Another milestone
Written by MetalHead84 on 2014-08-16 08:07:42

Long time since my last post, I didn't play that much over the summer.
Since in the last days it was raining here I decide to try to finish Watch Dogs.
I'm now at 1400 trophies, just 100 away from my goal for 2014, so with some new interesting games coming out in the next month, it will be easy to reach.

Some new milestone
Written by MetalHead84 on 2014-03-22 09:04:18

On thursday I set 2 new milestone on my trophies hunting.
First I reach 1000 bronze trophies playing Call of Duty Ghost, and shortly after that I got my 1300th trophies, also playing Call of Duty Ghost.
So now I'm a little less than 200 trophies away from my goal of 1500 by the end of 2014

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

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.

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. Feel free to add me to your PSN : PunkMetal

Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-09-28 06:56:06

I won't be updating that much in the next week, I have a 1 week holiday to go hunting, so unless it's raining a lot I won't be playing that much and will probably not have the time to update my blog.

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

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.

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.

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.
