End the scoring period with a 50% improvement over all stats from the previous period (TA, GS, Ach)


Yeah that isn't happening. Good luck MP. :lol:



Doesn't look so bad from my perspective, hard but doable. Especially with free head start basket ball games knocking about :slol:

It's only the TA score that's causing me grief, I got 3941 last period so I need almost 6000. It's actually not that bad, maybe I'll have a bash after all. You need a lot of achievements!

I'm surprised really, some of the individual ones have been potentially sickeningly hard especially double unlocks and double ratio for some but the team ones have been relatively alright. I guess the bottom 25% one will have done it for a lot of people.

These score X GS or Pop X Achievements are getting really old though, the latter especially. I have now unlocked well over 200 achievements in three weeks just in the name of getting bonus's to with popping and given a lot of the games I've bought have few high scoring achievements I will not be able to do another one with what I have, the Free month on Game pass will have to be dropped. Still only six more to go this week on the bright side.

The team ones are at least normally vaguely more interesting though so hopefully they've got something interesting up their sleeves.

Yeah, it's been pretty disappointing. I mean, there's only so much they can do with achievements but the lack of innovation has been pretty poor. Amazed they haven't done anything with a high/low ratio yet.

Well I assume it's coming at some point but how, given they've gone with teams of two, they haven't had a week were you have to get a Co-op achievements yet is beyond belief.

As you say Ratio, Spelling. Genre. Something that makes you do something different as oppose to grind achievements as we are all there to do that anyway :lol:

How's the challenge progressing Manny? I dumped a pile today (finished Happy Wars too yay!) but I'm still around 1800TA short. Not sure if that's happening or not

3 achievements short, it will be done. Like I say though next time it's a popper challenge I'm gonna have to break out the Game Pass.

In other news we are 18th :shock:

I think one week we should maybe go all out and try to top the table. We're never going to actually win the competition and it would be cool to get a bit of time in the spotlight. They do an interview on the forum with each weekly winner too which would be fun. :-)

If you want to go all guns blazing into a top of the leader board finish I can get behind that....we will look cheap as strawberry float as it will involve smashing every bonus we have I’d imagine, and the last pair that tried it got found out and finished about 5th. But all good, I say forum poll :lol: (do you have polls here?)

Ok, well I don't really want to ruin our bonuses while we're on a 100% record, so we should at least wait until one of those trips us up. I have a little plan which will hopefully be ok with you.

I have a potential 7000TA achievement left to get on Pinball FX2. It's very difficult (obviously) but I've been close a couple of times. I'm going to start having a couple of goes at it at the start of every week. If one week I manage to pop it, then it's on like Donkey Kong.

I will add a poll for week 15's subtitle, although I'm not totally convinced that anyone actually reads this apart from us. :lol:

Great work from you guys again :datass: , unfortunately married life and university commitments has really compromised the time i have to sit around and play gooseberry fool game this week and we've have had to drop our first bonus to weather the storm. This will only be a one week thing though and we'll be back to rinsing Neo Geo games by the weekend :toot:

Man I can't wait until those Neo Geo games go on sale or get put in a collection together. My Gamerscore is going to go supernova. :lol:

Bit last minute but I got there with the bonus eventually. Been trying to do an achievement on Tapping Skill Test (incidentally, the worst strawberry floating game on the planet) but it wasn't happening. Had to resort to trusty old Minecraft. But hey, I'm there. :)

EDIT - Whoa, the cutoff is huge this week. :o

Oh no, I hadn't noticed that. :(

This is why I've never got married.
