When I'm not back in scene at the moment I'm working on trying to get 100% on Yakuza 5, since I've always wanted to 100% Yakuza game. I did work on it for Yakuza 4 and also was planning to go back to 3&4 to 100% them but unfortunately I lost my saves for them when my older PS3 threw hissy fit -- this was before I used ps+ so they're not on cloud saves...

Ahh well, I'll be waiting for remasters so I can attempt for these on Steam (and/or PS4 )

Had to bust out another NeoGeo game to catch up. Thankfully this meant I also qualified for this week's individual bonus, so I guess it was worth it.


Going well :lol:

6K :? wow :fp: That'd be hard work every week


If I can somehow scrape through the summer holidays I'll be in good shape, my daughter goes to school this year so I'll be child-free pretty much the whole week. It's a big if though.

Only two more full weeks though right?

Decided to pull out of GTASC. It's just going to end up ruining my holiday if I'm stressing about that all the time. I need to ease of achievements for a while.

Do you really need to withdraw completley?

Do you not have enough bonus's to pull a Manny and take a week off.

I posted this in the TA thread, but I'm happy to share with you guys too. Basically I think this is it for me and GTASC.

Hey guys, I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that I'll be bowing out of the competition at this stage.

For pretty much all of my life I've struggled with mental illness, particularly social anxiety and depression. I use gaming as escapism, and often consider Achievement hoarding as one of my few accomplishments in life. The idea that I can be considered among the best at a particular field has been a very tiny light and the end of a long dark tunnel.

However it has reached a stage now where I realise that this is becoming a detriment to my home life, in particular my time spent with my children. The constant need to gather achievements when I should be playing outside with my kids has been a recent source of serious self-disgust, and it's become clear that I need to get this sorted out. I don't intend on stopping my achievement hunting, but I think exiting this competition (and the need to reach a target every single week) is a good place to start.

Hope everyone will understand, and best of luck to those who remain.

Fair play to you.

I wish I'd of thought of not spending time with the kids I just walked round like Herman Munster on about 4 hours sleep close to cut off :slol:

well done MHTL! A summer break will help for sure!! About 9 years ago I found myself in a similar position and managed to change before it got too bad.
