I'd play Battlefield with you guys, but I'm usually playing with my friend who never wants to play with people he doesn't know.

I've been playing AC Revelations a lot lately, but I've barely got any progress with the main story. I've maxed the rank of my assassins and done a bunch of side quests.

Yup, playing with a friend is the way to go. There was once a time that I could happily sit and play a video game on my own for hours, but these days I struggle. As anti-social as some people think video gaming is, for me, it's very much a social experience. I need to be playing with friends or I lose interest too quickly.

Nice, more time for me to catch up.

I'm two places above you now! Not that I'm really all that competitive or an achievement hunter, but it's always gratifying to go up a rank or two. I can't see myself playing much Deus Ex or Skyrim this week, so you'll probably overtake me again in no time.

It's understandable. However, you reminded me that we really should make the effort to get another BF3 session set up with the usual crew from this thread. I still have a week off, so if you guys are up for a game let me know. You're more than welcome to join too Makeshift if you ever get the chance.

Only thing that might interfere with this is Dungeon Defenders. Right now, it takes priority :P

On the off chance you do get it, let me know. I'm also interested to see what the trial will be like. I'm going to guess they'll just let you play selected maps and drastically lower the level cap or something. I hope I've not been making this game out to be better than it is, but 3 of my friends are playing it now and they all think it's awesome.

But yea, I feel like I've mentioned it enough, so I'll try to hold back on talking about it in here from now on.

Couple more of the final achievements from Saints Row. I think I need to go back to an older save to get all the Assassination Targets, as one of them requires you to get hit by a car, but I don't think I can do that because I take no damage from that. Luckily I only bought it as I started playing today, so I'll save my current on a new one and load that back up and get them all done. Then it's on to challenges and hunting gang members to taunt.

That's the Assassination Missions finished, but getting all the challenges is going to be harder than I thought, because the last one I have to do is taunting 48 more Gang Members, but I've completed everything, so there aren't any gang members unless I do an Activity, and you can't taunt them then because they're attacking you.

Does anybody have any tips on how I can get this done?

There's an activity you can redo that's up by some gun shop in Decker territory where you can get Deckers after you. You stand in front of the store and wait for them to come. Shoot their car slowly until it catches on fire and it will cause them to run away from the car. Then enter the store and when you come out they won't be able to drive away and you can taunt them. Usually there will be two out there, so taunt the one, kill him, go back in the store, come back out and taunt the other. Then wait for more Deckers to arrive and repeat. It's really boring.

I'm sure there's an easier solution out there now, but I did it this way.

There's my first playthrough of Resident Evil 4 finished off. I never played it originally but I finally see why it was highly regarded as one of the best games of that generation. Still need to go back through and do Ada's (I think that's her name) story to get all costumes and then professional and hopefully kill the boss I missed out on.

Survivalist - 10G
Reached Survival Wave 15 on Medium Difficulty

Got lucky with that one. Unknowingly joined a game that was on wave 15, couldn't actually play until the wave was over. When the wave ended I was put into the game and given the achievement. I thought you'd have to be around for all 15 waves but apparently not.

Reckon I should get the achievement for hitting level 70 tomorrow night.

Slowly putting a dent into Saints Row 3. It's a fun game, but not very addicting.

Bought Dungeon Siege III for £5. Pretty good for a fairly recent game with local coop. No gamerscore yet though

Used Cole's method thingy but with another activity, because Mayhem was timed and my Taunt count got reset after each time, so I did it with a Hard Trafficking Activity and got it in about 30 minutes or so.

You're My Hero! - 30G
Love/Hate Relationship - 10G

Although 10 new achievements just popped up for the Professor Genki DLC, I'll probably buy that at some point because it seems pretty cool.

Anyway, I should probably get onto Dead Island now.

Back on Dead Island and I've gotten about another 210G on it now. I think I'm about to finish Act II. From looking at the achievements I'll hopefully be able to send this game back with at least 700G, which is usually the amount I like to have before doing so.

I like being back to my old Gamerscore hunting ways.

Are you playing that without friends and managing to enjoy it? It's one of those games that I just wouldn't have found fun at all if it weren't for my mates playing with me.

Managed to get my second achievement on Dungeon Defenders last night:

Defender of Etheria - 20G
Reached Hero Level 70

My mate also got pretty lucky and have someone drop him some amazing items that boosts all his stats by ridiculous amounts, so I can now blast his way through a lot of levels. If we're on together again tonight I reckon we'll be going to the achievements for beating all the levels on insane difficulty. Hopefully that also unlocks the lower difficulty achievements and should get us another 60G.

I hate to think how many hours I've spent playing this game in less than a week.

No I'm actually quite enjoying it. I can understand it'd be a hell of a lot more fun with 3 friends, but on my own I'm doing pretty good, and I can go at my own pace, decide which quests to do and when etc.

After completing the B3 campaign (on hard, no less), I feel somewhat... warmer towards it.

It's still very shit, though, excluding comrades.

But come on, who actually buys those games for the single player campaigns? I'd just as happily have bought BF3 for the same price even if it came with no single player campaign. Multiplayer is where it's at.

Think I got another 10G today. Nothing spectacular.

Played some Assassins Creed since I finished at 2 today. Got about 6-7 achievements done. Currently doing the bomb challenges to get the achievement for completing them all.

Been playing some more Fruit Ninja. Most of the remaining achievements are simple enough but totally luck based which is really annoying. And the levels on Angry Birds are getting much harder to get 3 stars on which is also annoying me.

More progress made on Dead Island, at 85% or so on the main plot. The story is alright but it seems quite obvious what's going on. I'm hoping there's a nice twist to make me happy.

At 510G now and achievements appear to be slowing down. There also don't seem to be many that I'm going to get for completing the game. I think I'll start a new playthrough when I'm done with the story and as many Misc achievements as I can be bothered with then try the Co-Op ones which are pretty straight forward.

Finished the Dead Island campaign and now I'm going through again from the beginning and picking up as many achievements as I can. Without trying I managed to explore 69/72 locations in the whole island, which I was quite surprised at but only realised when I was in the final area that you have to stay in until you finish the story. Fortunately when I started again all my progress is the same, so I'll figure out where I've missed at get that 30G soon.

I think I'm only level 35 or something, and it's taking quite a while to level up each time. So unless I go through the entire campaign with this character again I might not to level 50 for that acheivement.
