Well after finally going back to this game it didn't take me that long to finish. Even finding all the collectibles didn't take very long using guides online.
What took forever was finding three other players to play online with through five quests. I tried to randomly find games online but that is where Dying Light had its biggest flaw. It randomly puts you in a game. You can't see the games and you have no control over who's game you join. Also depending on where you are on the map will determine the amount of people on the area you can connect to.
To say the least, the majority of the games I jumped in only had 1 player. Around 50% would just be standing there doing nothing. So getting an achievement where you can't find enough people randomly online to play with just isn't going to work.
I asked all my friends but most had either finished the game or gotten rid of it. Only had one that still had it.
So I setup some True Achievement events that nobody ever joined. I was making them 1 day after the next. So I finally made one 3 days out. A friend who had it but had never played jumped in and a random person joined. Luckily my 1 friend who did still have it said he would break away from Fallout 4 to help me and he made my 4th person I needed.
We had issues connecting all 4 of us initially but we finally all got in together. I finished my last achievement to get all 1000 points in the game.
I did get 1 DLC achievement in one of the updates but I'm not going after the other 2 in it. Plus I'm not buying the other DLC released for it either.
So I'm officially done with this game.
The game was good. If you like Dead Island, you'll enjoy this game. It's basically the same thing. Once you're done though, replaying it can only go so far.
This looks cool. I'd love to own all the LEGO Ghostbusters sets.

I picked this game up a few weeks ago on my Android phone. I usually don't use my phone for games but I've been trying to find one for when I have a min just to pass the time. Low and behold, I found Tap Titans.
I wasn't expecting to get into this game but it sucks you in. It's just a simple tap the screen game. That's all you do when you first start. The game doesn't give you any help and you will have to learn things as you go.
It doesn't take long that you'll see the money dropped will let you upgrade your attack. Then you'll see a new pop up after earning enough to buy your first helper. After a little more upgrading you'll see you keep getting more helpers to help you kill Titans. Following that you will see you can unlock skills the higher your level goes so you unlock that and you have to minimize the menu to see your ability to use them. They have a timer after you use them until you can use them again. Finally you'll realize you can also upgrade your helpers which each one unlocks their own abilities.
As you can see, a lot happens in the first few minutes of the game. It's simple but it adds depth the more you play.
Fast forwarding to level 600, yes level 600, you will get the ability to prestige. Once you prestige you unlock even more things to do. Artifacts become available to help you, you'll figure out you can click on your character in the menu where items can be purchased for your hero. Which you also unlockout items depending on what you do in the game and you'll unlock the tournament mode. Which to me will drive you to play it more within one day than you would normally do. Then you'll figure out that your helpers can get weapons to help them.
They do add items to help you. A fairy comes out every so often and drops a chest with a random perk to help you. Some of these involve watching ads to get the perk. Some are long (50 secs) to short (10 secs) ones. It's worth the reward but you can skip them.
They have a daily challenge to beat a boss which gives you a better reward each day.
They also have achievements which will give you diamonds by accomplishing things in the game. Some examples are how many times you've tapped, your highest stage, how many times you've prestiged, etc...
Mentioning prestige, don't be afraid to do it. It resets everything back to 0 and you start on stage 1 again. However you do keep your unlocked perks so you do get stronger. Another good reason is that's when you get artifacts. The only other time it's when you hit stage 80 and you get 1 every 10 stages. You get a lot more when you prestige. You also have to prestige when you join a tournament. Overall the main reason you don't need to worry about dropping back to the beginning is that it takes you way less time to get right back where you were. It really does fly by when you can kill the early stage Titans in 1 hit.
The last thing I'll bring up is the friend icon at the top. When you go in you will see your friend code at the bottom. If you
have a friend that starts playing, get their code or have them add yours. When they are your friend, you can invite them into a party to chat but it also puts their character on your screen. Whenever they are tapping it also taps on your screen. So you can get help on taking down Titans. I've only had 2 on my screen at once and they do damage to the amount your hero does. Its still cool and helpful. I'm up for adding more people, so if you want to add me, my friend code is zoly40v.
Overall, this simple tapping game grows into more than just typing and they did an excellent job on this game.

Finally hit level 45 in Happy Wars on Xbox One. I'm really getting tired of playing this game. I get kicked out more often than not so I lose all progress during the match. I get kicked out before the match starts quite often as well. It's just getting tiresome.
On top of that it obviously takes longer to level up the higher you get so 5 more levels is not going to go quickly.
Crossing fingers that I can finish it up this month.

So now for the setup. We just upgraded my daughters Kindle from a 1st generation to a 3rd (the HDX model) and she has a Fire TV in her room. Mirroring is now a possibility. If I'm going to play this game, what better way to do it than to mirror it and have the volume turned up.
I was having an issue getting the mirroring to work with the Kindle Fire HDX and Kindle Fire TV. Finally found a solution online that seems to be spot on. The mirroring hangs up very easily and the Fire TV tells you to hit any button to kill the mirroring. It doesn't work so well that way. Since I could never officially connect the fire time, I had to unplug the Fire TV to make it reset itself. Then mirroring would work. After that, you need to make sure to stop mirroring on your Kindle device first before you hit any button on the Fire TV or it will hand and you will have to unplug the Fire TV again.
So we bought the game today and my kids haven't gotten past night 1 yet. They got scared and quit. I've never played so a I started a new game. The screen gives you instructions on what to do and how to do it but you don't really know what's going on. The crazy things on the bed kept popping up behind me but I stopped them. I had about 2 hours to go on the first night without much happening. Then when I went to the left door I heard footsteps for the first time and I pulled that door shut and didn't want to let go. It put me a little on edge. I did hear the footsteps run away. So I opened the door and shined the flash light down the hall.
So I went back and kept checking the bed behind me to only have 2 crazy bunny things jump off the bed.
Went to the right door, no noise, turned the flash light on and saw something move away quickly. The squares with the words overlap where they are at so it's a little hard to see until they move and you know for sure it was there. So after that, it was a mad dash back and forth checking everything and made it through night 1.
Night 2 didn't take very long for the pitter patter of feet to start happening. Every time I went over to a door, I swore I was hearing something. Every time I shined the flash light I would see something. The anticipation was building up and I was going back and forth as quick as I could. I finally went to the right door and I think I stayed too long holding it. Went to the bed and looked behind me. Turned around and BAM! Bunny with teeth jumped out at me with a scream. I'm not going to lie, I screamed as I was not ready for it. Which then in turn made my wife holler and scream. The game got me and this is what all the talk is about for FNAF games.
After I calmed my nerves for a minute, I tried night 2 again. I was doing good checking the doors and keeping the bed clear. At that point, my daughter was like, you really need to check the closet. So I go check the closet, turn on the flash light and the monster is right there but not moving. I don't know what to do. I closed the door, opened it, flash light and it's still there. I finally hold the door shut for a short amount of time. When I let go and shine my flash light, a fox toy is on the floor with no monsters. So now I'm back to checking the doors from all the footsteps and I forgot about the closet again. Went back to closet and it was empty. Ran back to the bed and the wife screams when the fox jumps out. Which in turns scares me.
Yep, we're done for the night. Two big scares is enough for us. Kids are scared and don't want to go bed now. Thanks FNAF4.

It has been interesting to say the least since last Thursday for getting my new phone.
To start off I preordered the phone from what I thought was a true Verizon Wireless store. Come to find out on Wednesday night that the phone was $50 cheaper on the Verizon site. It was then that I found out the store I ordered from was an independent store because she couldn't fix the price.
So the following day when the store opened I called to get the price fixed. They can't adjust it. Imagine that. A $50 dollar cheaper phone lowers my bill and the taxes I pay on it. I'm definitely not paying the price they sold it to me for. Since the box wasn't opened and it was staring at me in the store, I cancelled the order. Which required me to drive out to the store as they can't do it over the phone. That was a waste of my work day I have to make up. Especially since the guy couldn't do the order cancellation correctly.
Once it was cancelled, I was then able to place the order on the phone with Verizon because the real store in town didn't get any leather backs in of the phone. Was told 2 day shipping and today makes day 4 that I finally get my phone.
Getting everything setup on the phone but took a few minutes to type this up.
So far it's nice but I'm more curious if the battery is going to last me all day or even 2 from what I've seen online.

My contract is up in like a month and I've starred looking at phones. Having an S3 now I looked at the A14 but it has the same issues I have now which I don't want to deal with anymore.
I saw the announcement of the LG G4 and just finished watching the announcement for it.
The kept the 808 Snap Dragon processor so it won't be overheating like the new phones using it are doing.
The camera is untouchable and has a manual mode for adjusting it like you would a real camera. The fact the lens can bring in more light makes the pictures come out even better. Plus the added feature of saving a raw file.
Another big key for me is the battery will last over a day. That's a big deal for me as I'm tired of having to charge 2-3 times a day.
One thing that will make this phone stand out is they have leather backs which I definitely want to get. They are making 3 other colors that aren't leather so you have an option if you don't want leather.
I think I've found the phone I'll be buying. Just hope the release date die the US is within a months time.

I keep picking up all the free arcade games that show up each month but I haven't gotten around to playing any of them except for 2. Halo Spartan Assault and Limbo, which I've finished both of them.
I did finish off LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.
Oh yea, I bought the Monopoly family back and finished Monopoly. I did not however play and beat that other mode yet. Guess I should do that.
I have played a little on Pinball FX 2.
I finished off Minecraft on both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One. Now my daughter is hooked on Terreria so I've started playing that. Been exploring my 1 world and I'm almost to the point of starting hard mode on that game. Wish more of my friends played this game. It would probably go a lot quicker on finishing off the achievements.
I have played Titanfall some but I haven't touched it since Christmas time. Made it half way through the game on achievements. That's at least something I guess.
I bought LEGO Movie Videogame during Christmas along with Zombie Driver but haven't played either one yet.
What I did buy was Dying Light. It's just like Dead Island, so if you enjoyed that game, you'll enjoy this. Looks better by a long shot. I'm still early on in the game but I did get to play with Ichya last weekend which made the game way funnier than going it alone.
Away from games, my laptop and printer died on me. So ended up buying new ones of those.
Kids are always swamped with something going on, so busy with them a lot more as well.
So there's an update for everyone on stuff I'm at. Let me know if you get Dying Light. Would love to play online with someone versus running it alone.
