Capitals - Stats

I've had a bad run & my win rate dropped to 32%, slowly I've been working my way back to 50%.

I've changed my play style after a good tip from witty to focus not on longer words but letters that hurt your opponent & get you close to attacking their capital.

Now if only I could win more games against witty & satsuma.


Rocket League - Long Range Goal

A fun session yesterday evening with the Claptrap Boys, I've uploaded lots of videos to youtube but wanted to highlight this particularly good long range goal.


Witcher 3 - Skellige

Back to The Witcher 3 & I've decided to carry on with the main quest and set sail for Skellige.

Fallout Shelter - Level 50

Still playing but only really spending five minutes in the morning & evening checking in to see how my wasteland wanderers are doing & if I need to recall them back to the vault. I managed to hit the level cap of 50 with Dr. Li so she is now just looking after the vault door ensuring it is regularly serviced & keeping the raiders away.


New Game - Rocket League

Football & rocket cars, an odd mix that just seems to work. Cooltag was happy to spend an hour taking me through the basics. I've been enjoying using twitch lately to capture my gaming, it is better than the PS4 share feature because you can capture a longer video.

Some highlights from my first Rocket League session, below my first goal.

and a match vs cooltag which he won with a brilliant save in the dying seconds.

Hopefully the claptrap boys will be online today so we can enjoy some 2 v 2 & 4 v 4 games.


New Game - Minecraft

I know what type of game Minecraft is but I've not played it, so my daughter wanted me to play the game with her & capture the gameplay. So PinkyPinkSam & Dad play Minecraft (Episode 1)

After watching back the episode, I don't think Sam's audio settings was set up correctly because the chat audio was very low so will check those for the next video, Sam obviously talks a lot & very fast so I need to get her to talk more slowly. Also no talking of Stampy (Sam loves watching his minecraft videos but I'm not a fan, although he has encouraged her to get into creating Minecraft videos & I'm happy to help).

We've enjoyed building a house & I've experienced using various equipments like the furnace, chest & workbench. I've also learnt the basic controls, how to mine & place blocks to build. Sam already has lots of ideas for the next episode.

Love Sam's closing line "Daddy can I play Xbox"

Journey (PS4) - Completed

Re-released on the PS4 & thanks to cross-buy I got to play it again yesterday on the PS4 for free. Such a good game, I especially love the music.


Fallout Shelter - Nuka Cola Factory

Finally made it to 100 dwellers & built a Nuka Cola Factory, annoyingly you need high endurance to work in the factory so I have sent off four dwellers to the training room & only have two working in the factory at the moment. Not much else to do now except upgrade the existing rooms & increase the number of dwellers in the vault, game could really do with an update.


New Game - Alphabear

Another create a word with letters game, this time using bears to boost your score. You can unlock new bears by beating the targets set for each stage.

The game is split into chapters (I'm currently on chapter 2), annoyingly you cannot go back to previous chapters I think I missed some stages on the first chapter.

Each chapter has a boss stage when beaten advances you to the next chapter.

I've currently got 9 bears out of 67, you have the obvious timer cooldowns like most free to play games but so far it's fine for quick five minute bursts.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Explosive Barrel

Explosive Barrels & Fire Magic do not mix.


The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt - Twitch Test

Playing some Witcher 3 so I could test Twitch exporting of the gameplay to youtube, it takes a while for the exported video to be scaled up to 720p quality, will look at the PS4 settings to see if I can stream at 1080p.


Fallout Shelter - Preston Garvey

I managed to get Preson Garvey from a lunchbox, just look at those stats, I've stuck him in the training room for now to improve his luck. Currently up to 84 dwellers & at least 10 wandering the wasteland collecting loots & caps.


Fifa - Scissor Kick Goal

Highlighting a video that my son has uploaded to his youtube challenge of an amzing goal he scored at the weekend whilst playing Fifa.

I've not played a Fifa game since 13, we are on a 2 yearly Fifa cycle so I will be buying Fifa 16 on release. Most likely I will get hooked again into playing the ultimate team mode.
