    Hmm last night some guy hit 1,000,000 gamer score on XBL.

    Wonder how many of those are legit.

    If it's the guy I'm thinking he's almost certainly legit. He's been grinding through games for years doing this. One million points is his thing. It is both amazing and kinda sad, like learning a man has broken the keepy-uppy record. Well done and all, but hmmm.

    I say this as a guy who chases achievements without enjoying it want quite often.

    I enjoy getting achievements but I don't chase them. If they give me bonuses I'll chase them but that's a dark and forbidden achievement philosophy.

    I liked how in Infamous 2, you could get a bonus to your chosen ethical side if you got the appropriate achievement in Infamous 1.

    I had to force myself to trade in a bunch of games even though I hadn't gotten 1000/1000 on them. Or had the 1000 but hadn't bought all the DLC and completed those as well.

    Even stuff I knew I would never, ever do because it would require countless hours of grinding I was saving because hey maybe I'll get fired and have nothing to do and then I can grind out that 'Kill 100,000' dudes in multiplayer achievement.

    It was painful, but for the best. I try and keep my grinding for achievements to acceptable levels these days. I once spent an entire afternoon grinding with a buddy for Stranglehold multiplayer achievements. Horrendous. It was probably sunny outside.

    Because it operates on your console's clock and not a synchronised time thing! :P

    But seriously, I did have to do that after I forgot a date.

  • HaphazardHaphazard Registered User regular
    I think I've only got one game with all achievements unlocked on the Xbox. And that's a game that had only 7 or 8 achievements.

    Ok, that sounds like work, so I probably don't have that one. Hmm. My mind's going. It had a good run, I think. Goodbye world.

    other than rare bouts of obsessive madness i tend to not bother with achievements

    i dont get a lot of satisfaction out of it because i either get them just by playing the game or i engage in game breaking behaviour to get them

    I have 30 Platinum Trophies.

    I say this with neither pride nor pity, but mere fact.

  • bloodyroarxxbloodyroarxx Registered User regular
    The best Cheevo/Trophy is Dark Souls 2 "This is Dark Souls" when you die the first time

    Yeah man, I tell ya what, man, that dang ol' internet, man, you just go in on there and point and click, talk about w-w-dot-w-com, mean you got the naked chicks on there, man, just go click, click, click, click, click, it's real easy, man.

    Heh, I don't own enough games for the PS3 to even get close to that.
    I use it mostly as a BD player.

    But the games I do have were well worth it (Last of Us, the Uncharted games, ...).

    Gravity Rush was a really interesting game whose plot goes screwy at the three quarters mark.

    I'm still not sure what's going on.

    I'm kinda ambivalent, because while it's totally meant to game you into hanging round longer than you otherwise would, Calendar Man's speeches are pretty great, and it's a restriction that's easy to circumvent and get it inside an hour if you really want. Crysis 2 however is based on Server time so the only way to get it is the slow path.

    so last night i somehow managed to get FFXIV going

    spent ages making a character

    Seeing my friend drive around some Magitek armor in that game for 15 seconds ALMOST got me to buy it.. because goddamn it looked so cool. Then I remembered it was an MMO, and beyond that it was an MMO with Square's goddamned stupid mechanics baked in, especially the one where I might lose my character. I was like nope after that.

    I'm really burnt out on MMOs. Perhaps something like Destiny will rekindle my interest, we'll see. For now, the only multiplayer thing I dabble in is Warthunder.

  • CasualCasual Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle Flap Flap Flap Registered User regular
    the only MMO i've ever seriously played is STO

    i really tried to get into SW but no one else wanted to play it and it wasn't great for soloing so ehhh i just kinda fell out of it

    I said I'd get up early, and get moving on the day and maybe some cleanup.

    It's now 50 minutes before work (and I have a 25 minute commute) and.. ugh. I don't wanna! :(

    Driving my sis to school. I already played a hearthstone game today and I know tomorrow I'm buying some packs.

    Fuuuuuuuu

    I need to read on exactly what you can and can't access without buying packs. There seem to be different types of decks? Advanced or elite or something? Idk maybe I misunderstood.

    Sig we gotta play some
