Ok, progress report on that 10,000 quest.
So far so good! I’ve gotten to about 3,300. I continue to play games that reward me very little points like Supraland (some, not much), and Microsoft Flight Simulator (none). But I also played games like Mushroom Quest, which is a neat little puzzle game that I finished last week to get 2000 points. It wouldn’t run on the Series X after the first time I quit, but it ran fine on my Xbox One. Usually when I play these little puzzle games, they get mentioned as being “quick completions” by sites like TrueAchievements because what they really mean is “if you follow the walkthrough and cheat, it’s really quick”, which makes it pointless, IMHO. I mean, if you cheat and look up the solutions to a puzzle game, why the fuck are you playing it in the first place? Anyway, Mushroom Quest was not like that. I didn’t cheat, and I did get stuck a few times, but after stepping away from the game, my brain figured it out and I was able to finish the whole thing. Noice!
I’ve got this weekend, and then next weekend too, so hopefully I can get over 6000 this time.
