Weekly Update – 350 Light



Not had much time for gaming the last week so only really managed to play some Destiny with Hakk trying to get to that 350 light target.

Currently I am on 341 light with 350 Gauntlets, Chest, Boots & Artifact. I don't have any 350 weapons with 340 being my max on Primary & Heavy weapon. We tried to get to the top of Felwinter Peak to collect a Siva Cluster, I gave up after a few attempts but Harry carried on & finally managed it. I will need to ask him for directions so I can collect that cluster.



Not had time to return Deus Ex, No Mans Sky or Lego Star Wars Force Awakens. I did try the demo for Dragon Quest Builders which is Minecraft Jap RPG style & it's not bad. The third person camera is a bit fiddly when placing blocks but not a hindrance. I won't buy it at the moment because I have XCOM 2 coming soon & need to finish what I own before buying anymore but it is on the shopping list.

On iOS, Pokemon Go I am now level 22 after using a lucky egg. I'm taking a break from the game for a while now because it's become a bit of a grind. Clash Royale I seem to have gotten the hang of Arena 7 now with 2143 trophies & now slowly getting enough cards to upgrade my commons to level 10 & rares to level 7.

I finished last in the Carcassonne league & got relegated. Blocking is a tactic I need to ensure I use again because I'm always on the receiving end.

Plan for the next week some more Destiny, back to No Mans Sky & Deus EX.

Weekly Update – "I feel I can do this forever"



I am pretty sure I will forever be gaming. Although not had much time during the last week, blame Netflix & Gotham Season 2 for taking up most of my free time but I did manage some more Deus Ex visiting a rave club & Golem City which is maze of stairs & floors.

No Man's Sky had another update which promptly crashed my game yet again. Can't believe after so many patches I am still getting crashes?! I'm still on the atlas path collecting these stones. I'm assuming at some point something must happen with them?

Destiny Rise of Iron came out yesterday, I teamed up with Hakk & Gus to complete the main campaign missions. Took about two hours you have a new enemy type in splicer, the final mission was pretty tough & I'd almost say impossible if you are not playing in a fireteam. Once you have completed the main campaign, you then get access to lots of quests from the social area Felwinter Peak.


On iOS new updates to Carcassonne with three new expansions. Information on the update below, I'm playing a few games with the new expansions & the Abbot seems to be the most useful so far. Looking into kicking off a new tournament soon.

Abbot
The Abbot is a new game piece you place on Cloisters or Gardens (a new tile feature that will magically appear on some existing tiles). You can recall the Abbot at any time during the game, scoring points without needing to finish the Cloister or Garden first.


The Old River
This was the very first expansion ever to be published for Carcassonne. Introduced at the SPIEL 2001 toy fair in Germany, it remains a true collector's item.


German Cathedrals
The newest mini expansion comprising six famous German cathedrals. So new it's not even available in print until mid October.

You can place a meeple on a German cathedral to score points. Roads connected to a German cathedral score bonus points.

Pokemon Go introduced a new buddy pokemon system for receiving extra candy so I have gone with Pikachu.

I've also finally caught a Rhyhorn & a Venomoth so have perfect stats with 74 seen & caught.

Clash Royale I just seem to be hovering between arena 6 & 7 currently on 1951 trophies & just about keeping my own.




Still playing Capitals  & enjoyed a 3 round knockout against HaggisHunter :)

iOS Roundup – Carcassonne Mega Expansion Game

Luffers started a new game on Carcassonne a couple of weeks ago with all the current expansions enabled which resulted in 262 tiles to play !!

I just managed to win with a high score of 644 points !!





I started to get bored with Pocket Mine 2 so deleted. Words on Tour annoyingly has become very difficult to get three star levels & the game is spamming with in-app purchases now. I've made it to San Francisco before deciding it is time to call it quit. Shame Zynga went for the in-app purchase route I would have been happy to pay up front to play the game.

Still enjoying Motorsport Manager currently on Tier 2 trying to win the International Racing Championship.

Carcassonne – New High Score 360

I have a bit of a console clearout with the 360 passed to the kids so they can continue enjoying minecraft & the PS3 reformatted & sold on. This only leaves me with the PS4 & WiiU consoles although I have not had much time to enjoy either lately.

I'm still playing Carcassonne on an almost daily basis, recently in a game against Arkham I beat my previous high score of 336 vs Lufferov to set a new high of 360.

Carcassonne – New High Score

One more post for the catch up and another high score post against who else but Lufferov again :)

Carcassonne – Largest completed city

In a recent game against Kerumba I completed my largest city so far with 75 points :)

Carcassonne – Who dares, Wins?

The start of a new game against Kerumba but I'm not sure who is going to get eventual control of the city & if they can ever complete it.

He who dares, Wins? Right?
