[Achievement Unlocked] II - Co-Op achievements without online can eat a dick

achievement-unlocked-generator.php?achievement=0G%20-%20Read%20the%20OP
–noun
1. something accomplished, esp. by superior ability, special effort, great courage, etc.; a great or heroic deed: his remarkable achievements in art.
2. act of achieving; attainment or accomplishment: the achievement of one's object.
3. Heraldry. the full display of the armorial bearings of an individual or corporation.

Did you hear that? Grinding is a heroic deed.

Welcome to the Achievements thread!

In this thread we talk about Achievements and Trophies and other little tokens of accomplishment that bring life (and gamerscore) into your otherwise dull gaming life. It's also a pretty good place to look if you need some help boosting achievements in games that no longer have functioning multiplayer (Most XBLA games and a fair bit of regular 360 games).

I suppose Steam Achievements could also be discussed here but seriously who does those anyway.

Useful Link Things

True Achievements - A well organized site that tracks your achievements, allows you to organize grinding sessions, and a handful of other gamerscore-related features.
Xbox360Achievements.org - A really useful site that has an index of all 360 games and their achievements, as well as guides on how to get them in most cases.
PS3Trophies.org - The sister site to above, the same resource for PS3 games.


Willeth's Technicolor Achievement Challenge
A nifty idea brought to light by Willeth, Achievement Challenges start on Fridays and run for a week. The goal is to raise your gamerscore by as many points as possible in that week. It's a fun way to increase your gamerscore and feel less dirty for grinding out all the achievements you hate. To sign up for the latest one, click that pretty colored. Older challenges will be archived as time goes on.

Games That Need Playing
The basic idea for this is that there are a lot of games that people need achievements for but can't get them because the multiplayer sucks, or nobody plays the game anymore, or both. So from time to time we will arrange large-scale game shindigs where anyone with that game can come play and get the achievements they need. Maybe we'll even end up playing for fun. Maybe.

    Just as a heads up, the guides at 360Achievements.org are essentially interchangeable with PS3 trophies. It's a rare PS3 game that does not mirror the 360 achievements list exactly. (Platinum trophies don't count.)

    I don't actually know. But I've heard it said there are some games that don't match up 100%. Either way, achievement guides are, for the most part, useful/usable for getting trophies.

    Well, yeah. But that rather goes without saying that a site labeled '360 Achievements' probably doesn't spend much time on PS3 exclusives. But for multi-platform titles, the probability is quite high that an achievement guide will work for PS3 games.

    Yeah I know that, but the reason I asked if anyone knew of a site was for PS3 exclusives. I'd prefer to not just ignore them on the grounds that multi-platform games can share guides.

    So I actually considered buying Avatar: The Burning Earth for the Achievement challenge.

    But nah, I'm not to that point yet.

    I did go ahead and buy Resident Evil 5, though, despite already playing through it on PS3. That way I have to work a little bit for my Achievements

    I must try to keep an eye on this one... wonder if I need some multiplayer for some of my really old titles like NHL07/08.

    Or the truly ancient ones like Kameo and Call of Duty 3

    Don't worry, the platforms have made me give up on it for a little bit, too.

    so, i rented The Force Unleashed...

    my so/so opinion of the game thus far (very fun an star warsy at times, other times not so much.), it appears it shall be the one to drive me over 40k, which is pretty dandy.

    but for anyone who's played it, do the counts for like the 500 kills roll over if i decide to do a second playthrough or am i required to get 500 kills with them in a single playthrough.

    I believe it's cumulative. But they're very grind-y. A giant pain in the ass. Only Bossk and Worst Day Shift Manager require it to be all on the same playthrough.

    Cool, thanks. Managed to get Bossk on the first vader mission, since i found a path with infinity spawning wookies :D

    I wish the game didnt feel soo.... uneven... at points... i'm having a hell of a time in the innards of the death star on the medium difficulty.

    The canon ending is whatever doesn't fuck with the movies. So in this case, LS.

    EDIT:
    Also, the Death Star is a fucking pain on the highest difficulty. But by that point, you can skip that whole bullshit at the beginning. It won't help elsewhere, but it's something.

    1000/1000 saboteur, fun game, grindy at the end but i enjoyed it.

    Security zone is my least favorite firefight level and I get bored everytime I try to do it so, those last 10 points evade me at the moment.

    Yeah, I though the same. Until I realised you could just let the game sit on one of the levels. So I just did that whenever I needed to charge the controller battery. As long as you finish the level requirements and then save the game you don't even have to do any real work.

    I try to complete any RPG I have, but I just don't think I can grind out 50 starred ranks in the arena in Resonance of Fate. That's like 300 more battles past the 200 I did to complete the Arena itself.
