GWJ 360ers: trueachievements.com!

Congrats honeycut and good luck!

I'd be down for it again. Nothing quite like the drama of the Dandies constant near-eliminations to keep the crowd on the edge of their seats.

Thanks folks. The $hitty hotel internet kept me from getting on xbl, but it allow me to put some time into the original Darkness. I have to beat it on hard to complete that game. I wish I had not erased my old save.

I'd be willing to do the contest again next year because so far I've been able to knock out a chunk of 360 games that had been living in my pile of shame.

Wow! Nicely done! it's been so long since The Parisian Dandies got knocked out that I forgot that it was still going on!

I'd be interested if there was another B/C-team again. The amount of hours I spend gaming has tumbled the last 2 years, so I'm not exactly the most desirable team member for a serious team, but for a team with an expectation of not making it much past the first quarter (again!) I'm in.

Same here. The pile is huge, but I'm back to playing for fun, and not chvs. I'll save Arkham City (PC) for next time, at least.

Congrats, honeycut1!

Sorry I forgot to change the leaderboard! Was in Italy. Back now.

Board's set to total TA this week.

Clem was 1000'ing Assassin's Creed.

Except that was 1000 Euros, for bail, for leaping off a mall facade and trying to punch that police officer with his hotel coffee spoon taped to his wrist. He's not allowed back in Italy.

*sniffle* That's my boy. You're ready to fly, baby bird.

Ha, this is actually very accurate. When I saw the pantheon, the first thing I said to my wife was "hey, I've climbed up there . . . in Assassin's Creed." Needless to say, she was impressed. But playing Brotherhood really helped me with Rome's general geography!

Didn't get a chance to assassinate any italian carabinieri though.

That special birthday gift is 20 MSP. Hilarious.

That's as much as you'd save by buying something for 1000 SpaceBucks.

25¢? Why, you shouldn't have.

Happy birthday. Here's a quarter. Don't spend it all in one place.

Xbox: Here's a quarter... call someone who cares.

Finally, MS' inability to adjust the value of MSP to match the dollar is paying off. That's 29¢ CAD, suckers!

(How can I tell Clocky is on a Mac right now? Or maybe she just really knows her Alt codes.)

Anyone gotten their super-easy achievements for Solitaire and Minesweeper in Windows 8 yet?

I reached a new low tonight. I fired up Hannah Montana to do my part for the GTASC. My team made it through this week and it was rough. The two teams that were eliminated put up the high 18,000 each. I do not understand how people have that much time.

Stand proud!

How do you think I got my avatar image?

Spoiler:

My Hannah Montana Ninja Skills of course!

Stick it up there in your trophy case. Be proud of the chicken coop you built (and that young love that blossomed in it's shade).

EDIT:
It entertains me that the 5000th post in the True Achievement thread is a discussion around the Hannah Montana movie game...

It will be added to the trophy case later tonight. The story of that game taught me south about life and love.

I will save something equally shameful for the 6,000th post.

Make sure it's co-op and I'll see you there

Done and done!

My team is out of the GTASC. We were just shy of making it into the top 10, but our 24,000 TA wasn't enough to get us there.

Overall I enjoyed the contest, but it'll be nice to play some good games from the backlog instead of those garbage games.

What a run! Good job, buddy and congrats for making it this far!!!!

Hey gang, GTASC 2013 just opened up and I would like to put together a team to play! We almost made it to the top 50 last year - and would love to go even further this year. I am going into this with the intention of clearing my pile, as this will probably be the last year of the 360(I bet the 720 is out xmas of next year).

Right now it is DrJekl and I, with an invite out to M0nkeyBoy. Would love two more knuckleheads for Certis is Awesome 2013. Ideal candidates are -

A) Open to co-op! We didn't do that much of this last year, and I think we would have gone further had we done more.
2) Central or Eastern-timezone in North America! (Makes it easier to co-op)
III) Willing to play terrible games for TA points:)
Q) There is no Q.

Please PM me/post here if interested!

Congrats Honeycut for making it that far!

I'm definitely up for doing the GTASC again. Are we getting the Dandies back together too? Or are we shuffling the teams a bit?

Interested, Sally.
