Jeremy McGrath's Offroad

This game was on sale last week so I picked it up as it looked like an easy arcade to complete and I was in the mood for some racing.

The game is ok but it's not no top of the line game you just gotta have.  Hit one glitch where I got stuck in a spot that I couldn't get out of.  Luckily they have a reset button for when that happens.  I did flip a couple times but this game does not show any damage and the flip was not impressive.

In about 1 hour and 30 minutes you can unlock all but one of the achievements.  The last achievement you have to drive for 1000 miles in the game.  I tried doing a spin and letting my truck just spin around all night but it kept going wide and it got stuck.  Going to have to get that 360 turn going better or pick a track with a little more so it won't get stuck.  If you want to do it by driving it all, I think I had around 120 miles after the 1.5 hours of playing.  So around 7 to 8 hours to finish it up that way?  Ill stick to rubber banding the controller while its plugged up and earn it that way.

Backtracked to Eternal Sonata

Talking with the wife other day and she said I needed to finish all my games before we got it.  That's going to be a hard feat to accomplish considering all the games i own that i haven't even played yet.  She said to start on the oldest so I pulled out Eternal Sonata.  

Took me a little bit to get the game of playing and get back i to the story where I left off but now I'm enjoying again.  Actually popped 2 achievements the first 2 days I played it but none sense.  It's a low scoring game and it takes a 2nd play through to get all 1k in the game.  I don't think you can get over 340 on your first run.  It's that or less depending on how much you find and do in the game.

Im still playing some GOW just to mix it up some but will see how long or how many I get through before the year ends.
