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

I actually managed to make it into one of the best squads

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.

For Honor

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 10%
Didn’t get around to playing this.

Stardew Valley

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 20%
On hold while I’m playing other games. 😊

Battlefield V

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 100%
Hmmm, somehow every time I fly a plane and eject, in turns out my character is female. Is this a bug I wonder, or intentional? Maybe the pilot is a separate class to the four standard ones (Assault, Medic, Support and Recon) although I didn’t think it was… Also, I continue to have issues where I get stuck on the loading screen between maps – this often requires me to Alt+F4 in order to exit and restart the game. Annoying.

The Frontlines game mode also seems to be bugged at the moment – often the attacking team is unable to pick up one of the bombs meaning it gives quite an advantage to the defender (since they only need to focus on stopping one bomberman instead of two).

Oh, and technically, while I’ve marked my Percentage Complete stat for this game at 100% (since I’ve played it for at least 10 hours in multiplayer) I’ll probably play it for a couple of weeks more after the Tides of War update so I can check out all the new features.

Urban Empire

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 50%
I didn’t get to play Urban Empire this week. Too much Battlefield V!

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

  • Picked by Luke
  • Percentage Complete = 50%
I didn’t get to play Black Flag this week. Too much Battlefield V!

Sid Meier’s Pirates!

  • Picked by Choona
  • Percentage Complete = 68%
I didn’t get to play much of Sid Meier’s Pirates! this week although I’m continuing to search for map pieces since there’s really not too much left to do.
