Seriously Geeky Sundays: Funny Guys, Cosplay, Here Be Monsters!

Oops! Totally fell behind on the awesome Just Geeking By‘s cool Seriously Geeky Sundays community event. I blame the fact I got addicted to Assassin’s Creed Syndicate this month and was caught up in other intensive blogging events I joined on whim. I wanna blog about everything, dammit!

Time for some serious catching up here. *cracks knuckles*

Welcome to this weird 3-week combo installment of me answering Heather’s prompts! This is going to be about comedy, cosplay and creeps. Definitely check out Heather’s creative prompts and take part in the fun if you want! I’m absolutely loving her questions so far.

So… without anymore intro babbling from me, here are my answers to Just Geeking By’s amusing, dressy, and horror-filled questions from the last few weeks. Thank you, Heather!

The Great London Trophy Hunt (Complete)

When the awesome Gaming Omnivore pitched a brilliant trophy hunt collaboration idea on the Later Levels Support Role Discord channel (all bloggers welcome there, by the way, so feel free to join) I was all for it. After some discussions we decided to set Assassin’s Creed Syndicate in our sights and blog about our journeys to platinum.

Here is what went down during the final week of my trophy hunt! You can see what happened during week 1 and 2 here and here.

TL;DR – Mission accomplished! Thanks to a bad migraine episode where I could hardly see anything and my arm and tongue went numb, I was on the verge of freaking the fuck out. I also didn’t have anyone around to reach out to so… yeah. That wasn’t fun.

To distract my panicking brain (only I can save me from me, after all), I focused on grinding out two of the most annoying trophies in Syndicate (running over 5,000 things with a carriage and playing 300 with 50 bad guys on a train roof). Focusing on those grinds and nothing else that was happening seriously helped me get through that. Thank you Evie and Jacob! ❤

Overall, I freaking loved my time with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Evie Frye is now one of my top 5 video game sheroes and I really enjoyed the story. Exploring Victorian-era London was such a treat! I also can’t praise the grappling hook mechanic enough.

Yup. My faith in the Assassin’s Creed series is restored.

My next platinum quest is going to be Mass Effect 3, in case anyone is curious. I’ve platinumed all the other Mass Effect games and I think I’m finally ready to jump back into BioWare’s universe after taking a much needed break from it.

The Great London Trophy Hunt (Week 2)

When the awesome Gaming Omnivore pitched a brilliant trophy hunt collaboration idea on the Later Levels Support Role Discord channel (all bloggers welcome there, by the way, so feel free to join) I was all for it. After some discussions we decided to set Assassin’s Creed Syndicate in our sights and blog about our journeys to platinum.

Here is what went down during week 2 of my trophy hunt! You can see what happened during week 1 here.

The TL;DR version is I binged on side activities (Fight Clubs are the best) and my Assassin duo was pretty much maxed out before I completed Sequence 4 of the main story. Steamrolling my way to platinum now, baby!

The Great London Trophy Hunt (Week 1)

I love collecting PlayStation trophies! For whatever reason I get all giddy and excited whenever I see one pop up on my screen while playing a game. Xbox and Steam achievements just don’t have the same effect one me. Probably for one simple reason: those platforms don’t have shiny Platinum Trophies!

Yep! I thoroughly enjoy a good platinum trophy quest if a game really clicks with me. It’s a good excuse to see everything a game has to offer and walk away with a shiny virtual memento that shows off how much I loved it.

Syndicate will hopefully be my 23rd platinum!

There was once a time when I was obsessed with the Assassin’s Creed series. I have so many collector’s edition statues it isn’t even funny. However, Assassins Creed Unity broke my interest in the series. I didn’t hate the game, but I didn’t love the game either.

Arno the protagonist was a meh character to me, QA issues (let’s never forget the floating eyeballs), and all the forced multiplayer elements left a bad taste in my mouth (more specifically, I can’t get the platinum trophy because of two damn multiplayer trophies… grr).

Word on the internet was that Ubisoft learned from their mistakes and made Assassin’s Creed great again after the Unity stumble. I’ve been meaning to jump back into the series for a long time, but never got around to it until now. So a huge thanks to Gaming Omnivore for giving me the excuse to!
