What I've Been Playing This Week (aka Pile of Shame Sunday)

Chryssalids made an apperance in my XCOM 2 game this week

The following post is part of a series of posts that are published every Sunday to update readers on what Mark G has been up to with respect to finishing off games on his "Pile of Shame". The games to target are picked by Choicest Games contributors Choona, Luke and myself. As I'll be talking about my progress through these games, there may be spoilers ahead, especially for games containing a narrative. Consider yourself warned.

Cally's Caves 4

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 62%
I'm making way through the New Game+ Mode in Cally's Caves 4 and have defeated the 2nd level boss which I didn't end up even fighting since the General which I had convinced to join my side defeated him for me (or at least scared him off). Neat! 6 more bosses to go...

Hand of Fate

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 91%

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 25%
I haven't made any further progress on this – it's now on hold while I am distracted by… well… a lot of other games ๐Ÿ˜Š.

Battlefield 1

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 10%

XCOM 2

  • Picked by Luke
  • Percentage Complete = 40%
I finished a Retaliation Site mission this week and encountered an old enemy: the Chryssalids! These enemies appeared not only in the last XCOM game by Firaxis but also in the original UFO: Enemy Unknown (aka X-COM: UFO Defense). Thankfully, I made short work of them in this particular mission and I actually had more problems taking out the mechs (as usual). None of my soldiers died at the end though and enough civilians survived for the mission to be a success. Choooooice!

Fortnite

  • Picked by Choona
  • Percentage Complete = 60%
Again, I was going to dedicate some time to Fortnite this week but turns out there is yet another update! And it's taking too long for me to actually play so no Fortnite this week either. I'll have to learn to keep the Epic Games Launcher open during the day in order to download updates I guess!
