The Pillar: Puzzle Escape completion + Assassin’s Creed Valhalla progress
Hi all. First of all, I have to tell you that my Xbox Series X finally arrived 2 days ago (last Wednesday). With this arrival, I will try to do daily posts like this and tell you everything about my progress and completions. I also purchased Assassin’s Creed Valhalla which arrived on Monday so I had couple of days to test it on Xbox One. I also pre-ordered Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthbound which was supposed to arrive yesterday (Thursday). While the game was released on Thursday (Febryuary 4th, 2021), physical copies will be released on 12th of February … like 1 week later … it’s really strange.
The Pillar: Puzzle Escape
First, let’s talk about The Pillar: Puzzle Escape. The game was developed by Paper Bunker and published by EastasiaSoft. The game took me aroun 35-45 minutes to complete. I LOVE puzzles so I solved all the puzzles myself without any guides. I just used guide for collectibles. You are only required to complete first 5 levels (or 4 levels + introduction/tutorial level). Each level (apart from tutorial) had 3-6 collectibles and dozens of puzzles
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla progress
I was able to see a massive difference in Valhalla on Xbox One and Xbox Series X. First of all, the loading times were significant. On Series X, you will wait for less than 10 seconds while using fast travel feature. On Xbox One, you will end up waiting at least 40-50 seconds. Sometimes over 1 minute. Also, graphics-wise, it looks so much better on Series X. It plays smoothly, no lag. While the graphics still look great on Xbox One, sometimes you will see the game lagging a little bit, especially when you enter a bustling city with lots of people.
Anyway, currently, I have completed a few arcs: Ledecestrescire, Grantebridgescire, East Anglia and Oxenefordscire arcs are done. Next – Lunden and Asgard arcs. Over the weekend I hope to level up to 200 power as well complete at least half of the ars in England. Will see how it goes.
Achievements wise, I earned 12 achievements so far:
- Flying Eivor
- It’s Alive!
- The Good Saxon
- Hard Choices
- Face My Might!
- Everyday Life
- It’s Not a Bug, It’s a Feature!
- To England!
- The Saga Begins
I hope that over the weekend I can get my achievement completion to 20 achievements earned. Anyway, that’s all from me now, see you on Monday.
