    Bean Dive, Moving, and Musings

    Post by FreakyRO on Thu Jul 21, 2016 3:09 pm

    So, a couple weeks ago I dove in and participated in this year's Bean Dive over on TA. If you're unfamiliar with the concept of a Bean Dive let me explain. Essentially, you take all those games on your back log and play them until you unlock one, and only one, achievement. The object is to get those games recorded in your stats. It adds them to your stats and tanks your completion percentage at the same time. I'm not one to boast of my completion percentage, but I did have over 50% completed. After the dive I sat at just over 42% completion. I Bean Dived 90 games and need over 1600 achievements to get back to where I was. I didn't realize I had 90 games in my back log. Crazy.

    The wife and I also decided to move back to the east coast at the end of the summer. We had a blast in California, but with her job relocating offices and the addition of our little one, it just makes sense to move back home. Free daycare and all that. Hopefully I'll be able to get in on more sessions with you guys. I know I'll be on (mostly) the same time with you guys so that may make it easier.

    Lastly, I've been getting back into listening to podcasts. My job is quite boring and I find myself listening to a lot of stuff to pass the time. Currently I'm listening to the Xone Bros podcast. They're a decent trio of guys who try to pass the word of "positive gaming." Go take a listen if you fancy. I also listen to the Achievement Hounds' community podcast, although that one can get very boring. Some of my non-gaming podcasts include How Stuff Works, Hardcore History, Common Sense, Invisibilia, and others. Are there any podcasts out there that I have to check out? Let me know, I'm always looking for more.

    Well, back to the grind. Currently I'm working on Rare Replay. There are a lot of achievements that are easy and they're a decent ratio on TA. I'll hit up my teeny weeny list later this week, hopefully next week. Game out.

    I spend a lot of my workday listening to music or watching videos. I'll give Xone Bros a listen. Sounds like it could be entertaining. I hope the move went well!
