Worlds Slowest Gamer: Achievements update January 19

A Happy New Year to you all!

 

Here’s a catchup of the achievements I’ve unlocked playing Halo 5:Guardians recently…ish!

As I said in the video I’ve embedded a guide to get the skull I unlocked in the game. The tutorial comes at the skull from a different angle to what I detailed ( I don’t jump over the pelican) but I realise it’s probably easier to follow as a video. Do check out their channel for more helpful guides

Sluggish Reaction: Anthem Trailer

BioWare recently dropped their Anthem trailer at the game awards as well as an unexpected teaser for a new Dragon Age game – which gives me hope for the future of Mass Effect.

Anthem7

At first viewing the trailer didn’t seem to offer much we didn’t already know, but the more I’ve watched it the more I’m intrigued. We get additional shots of Javelins taking down various monsters in the world.

Anthem2

We see some of the faces we’ve already seen, but we start to see some more of their capabilities. I’m still struggling not to see comparisons with Destiny with characters harnessing the power of the Anthem seeming a lot like the Traveler’s light.

Anthem8

We also glimpsed a few more new characters including this woman, who seems to be a leader of some sort, perhaps of one of the factions in the world.

Anthem1

I liked the references to ancient civilizations and exploring groups that have come before but been wiped out by the Anthem of the Gods is intriguing and feels very BioWare.

Anthem3

The idea of a walled city again seems very Destiny but actually seeing the city defend itself in-game is very exciting. I also spotted something interesting on second viewing.

Anthem4

At first glance I thought these were some giant monsters attacking the city but looking again the vehicle on the left looks a lot like a Strider – the vehicle your character uses to get about in the world when not in their Javelin. Anthem’s world isn’t just ‘one last city’ but a number of human civilizations, who aren’t always at peace.

Anthem6

And with the we see the Moniutor, the enemy leader of the Dominion – a human faction intent on controlling the Anthem. Realizing this, especially with the trailer literally having an unreliable narrator, makes the game come alive. A world full of monsters but the main enemy is human?! Yes, sign me up now!

Anthem5

I say human, but some of his followers look pretty freaky, wonder what the power has done to them.

I was already sold on this, but now I can’t wait!!!

World’s Slowest Gamer: Achievements update November 2018

Here are some achievements I’ve unlocked in Destiny

Also here are the details from the Grimoire card I unlocked after finding the Dead Ghost

Grimoire Jupiter.jpg

Lord of worlds, massive Jupiter and its moons must have been a cornerstone of Golden Age civilization. But the nature and extent of human presence there is now unknown. Old records refer to cities in ice and world-spanning oceans, but perhaps this is only poetry.

Dreams of Alpha Lupi

Even the largest body lets itself be pushed where it needs to be, seduced into nice, warm loving orbits. Persistence is the key.

Seafloors transform and then yank themselves skyward, shattering the icy crust. New worlds awaken in the swirling depths.

You build homes around this half-born sun ripped by storms and supersonic wind.

What’s Canon: Star Wars Uprising

Join me as I take a look at the Species, Planets and Stormtrooper variants that have been added to Canon (from new and Legends material) in the mobile game Star Wars: Uprising

You can read my other posts about this  game in the links below

I forgot to mention the Legends version of the Purge Trooper – thankfully Star Wars Explained already covered it in a video, which I’ve linked to below

Symbols (3)

This will probably be the last one of these posts as they do more to expose my ignorance than share any knowledge.

Anyway, these symbols were made by Clay Cazmarec in the Animus chamber – some are just coded messages but others are historic symbols and I thought I’d find what I can and post about it.

The Eye of Providence

The eye within a pyramid has long been a symbol of God’s all-seeing eye on the world. It is famous for its appearance on US currency and the conspiracy theories claiming it represents Masonic control of the government.

The symbol likely represents Abstergo’s goal to control the world through the Abstergo-Eye satellites.

Pentagram

Though the symbol has it’s origins in Greek and Roman mythology in modern culture it is linked with evil and satanism.

The symbol like represents Abstergo’s evil intentions

Nazca Lines

The Nazca lines are an astonishing feat of ancient design. Depicting animals, these massive designs are only visible from the air – a view their creators would have never had.

The symbols likely point to the location of a Piece of Eden in Peru, where the lines are located.

Omega

Omega is the last letter in the Greek alphabet and is significant because of Christ’s statement “I am the Alpha and Omega”

The symbol is likely a reference to Abstergo’s attempts to attain godlike power

Eye of Horus

Also known as the wedjat, the Eye is a symbol of good fortune and prosperity in Egyptian culture

It’s likely the symbol is a reference to Eye-Abstergo

The following two are mathematical symbols I won’t even pretend to have knowledge of. You are welcome to Google them in your own time

Borromean Rings
