Well, that went well...

I know I probably have none of you reading this, but it's nice for my own sanity. Basically, last blog (back in May), I said i'd try to boost my achievements rating by getting every game to a C rank. Well, I haven't really done much work, and i've added to the list of games I need to get to a C. Namely, the one barrier being Too Human. I stupidly bought it dirt cheap in a game store sale, but later found I absolutely hate the mechanics of the game. Ah well. 

Well, seeing as though I recently brought myself a PS3 Slim, I decided to do a similar thing but with trophies, and i'm trying to keep it so I can't get lost in a mess of 100 gamerscore games. Basically, i'm allowing myself 3 games below 75% completion, and I won't buy any more games until one of those games are at 75%. At the minute, my games are: LittleBigPlanet, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and Motorstorm: Pacific Rift.
 
My thoughts on those games? LittleBigPlanet is truly amazing, I think the art style is brilliant and the gameplay (if done right) is brilliant. I haven't had much chance to play Batman yet, but from the first look, i'm very impressed. Finally, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift is a trick one. I really like the game, however I sometimes find the difficulty too crushing to be fun. 
 
Anyways, hopefully, i'll maintain this mantra. Hopefully.

its a good idea until you get to 3 games that you really hate, this whole idea really doesnt make much sense to me
