Well it's now 11:45PM. I think this is the most video game playing I've done in a row since Diablo 3 came out. I've gotten pretty far into the game. I reckon I'm about 3 hours at most away from beating it. I'm also pretty sure I messed up one of the trophies, Former Adventurer (incapacitate 25 enemies using the dodge counter move). Silly me thought that by upgrading it Lara could still "incapacitate" enemies but instead of stabbing enemies in the knee with an arrow, she stabs them in the throat. Insta-kill! And yes it is awesome and badass but I know it's been more than 25 enemies by now and the trophy hasn't registered. So to all you platinum hunters, don't upgrade that skill until you get the trophy.

Near the end of the game you end up fighting these big Oni Warriors with shields. They are so tough that you actually end up having to dodge counter them two or three times before they die so I ended up getting the Former Adventurer trophy here.

Other than playing Tomb Raider I did take a break to do some schoolwork, go to class, get some groceries and watch some hockey. So I was not a total hermit. OK so I may have had the game on as I played but STILL COUNTS. I'm really hoping that it snows tonight and my class tomorrow gets cancelled as I still have a ton of work to do in the morning.

And as I write this I got an email from my college: no school tomorrow:

(I was writing on my phone as I smoked a cigarette/waited for the snow to come.)

As of right now the race to platinum stands at me: 31% and Kanye: 5%

And I officially have nothing to do tomorrow. And Kanye will still have to work. As far as the single player is concerned I got this one in the bag. The only competition will be the multiplayer. And that damn Former Adventurer trophy. Because yes I did let Kanye know not to upgrade it too soon. He needs all the help he can get.
