GWJ 360ers: trueachievements.com!

Reminds me, some day I have to re-awaken The Plague. Some day.

Holy crap, Clemenstation. 13 Left 4 Dead achievements in one day? Did you just start playing or something?

EDIT: Ugh, all of my "easy achievements" are from games I rented and don't have anymore. Gotta find a way to tell the system that I don't have them, so it won't list them.

Sent my request, sadly I have the avatar achievements...couldn't resist

No dice fella. Achievements are forever.

At least I don't have to add them to my To Do list. That is my favorite feature so far of the whole site, being able to cherry pick the achievements I actually want to (or think I will realistically) do, and see them all in one place.

I had the game since the Sep 14th... NewEgg.com manage to break the street date and ship me a copy.

Oh, achievements... I'm all at once proud and ashamed of my GamerScore when I look at that list!

Elusive achievements I'm trying for right now? The Trials HD achievements... just need to finish the Inferno II to finish all the Extreme courses! Plus, those Beatles: Rock Band achievements... I always end up choking at the last minute. Boo.

Will have to friend up some more GWJers for the added inspiration!

Sure did! I bought it used on the weekend for 30 bucks because I had a friend staying with us for a few days before he flew to S. Korea. Turns out L4D is awesome, we beat two campaigns and then when I was at work on Monday he apparently finished the job. So... yeah... I had a ringer.

Well it's not like I asked him to! I thought he was gonna spend the whole day getting his VISA.

Ironically, he had to leave at 3 am the other night to catch his flight, and when I went to bed he was just booting up Civilization Revolutions. I told him to play a civ that I hadn't already beat a game with, since there's a chincy little cheevo for each one. He blatantly ignored my wishes!

Checked the leaderboards today... I'm at #51 out of 65. Man, and I was feeling good about the points I racked up in DiRT2 last night. I want to break into the top 50 without having to rent Avatar, and I'd like to stay there when a few more people are added as well.

Looks like I may have to step it up a notch...

Halo ODST is a True Achievement goldmine.

May be... but if you really want to score big, Moto GP series is a way to go. There is like 5 people who ever played it!

How does the site handle PC achievements (I have seen a couple here and there. Batman comes to mind)? Does it automatically integrate them or must you take additional steps to enable that?

If the PC game in question is Windows Live enabled then its achievements get recorded along with your Xbox Live achievements (I got my Fallout 3 achievements that way). If it doesn't then they don't show up. (I have Orange Box on both PC and Xbox and only achievements I earn on the Xbox show up).

Some new folks added. I've slipped to 18th. CURSES!

I can't help my achievement whore-bagery. I'm in and kind of surprised at my 40th position on the list. I'm also surprised at how much TA score some of my achievements are worth. Now to work on climbing up the charts!

Yea to me and my low gamerscore!

So how goes the journey?

I started Oblivion last week for some asinine reason, and it seems like achievements will be few and far between. They're basically all allotted to either the main quest or the guild quests, making me wonder whether it might be best to just blow past all the intriguing little villages and shacks and just get straight to the big time action.

I'm onboard as xGumbie

Think I added you in last week bud.

Would anyone object if I switched up the leaderboard format every few weeks or so? It can rank by completion %, TA ratio, and other stuff as well.

Nope, wouldn't bother me.

Good idea Clem.

I've dropped a few places, even after adding almost another 600 GS from completing ODST. My PC gaming is really hurting my chances of staying in the top half.

I'd welcome the leaderboard mixups.

Alright, for the next two weeks we're ranking by TA ratio, which is basically the measure of how 'difficult' or 'rare' your achievement collection is. Higher TA ratio means you've gotten a lot of achievements that other people haven't got.

You're just hoping you rank high in one of those many different aspects, don't you? I will be surprised if I'm not near the bottom all of them... then again, I just only broke 6K real achievements. So we'll see...

Turns out I'm in the top 10 Surprise!

Some people on the leaderboard (Gravey, Ahrezmendi) got a huge jump from the change. Nei is still first, of course.
