Just finished Supermarket Shriek. Fun game, but hell it got tough at the end. The last few achievements were approaching 10 TA ratio, and I can see why.

I'm halfway through that, it's not been too bad so far but I have heard it gets tough. Been disrupted by that Arcade Collection which is free to play this weekend.

It’s only about three levels that really need some practice. But on one of them I thought I was totally stuck, and imagined not finishing before it leaves Game Pass. The final achievement was not as bad as I had feared - playing the last (and longest) level in “co-op”, with one controller in each hand.

Well I managed to finish Geometry Wars 3 Co-op mode by myself, so I should be ok with that! :lol:

I limped over 10,000 last month as well! Felt pretty good.

Just 100%ed Streets of Rage 4.

Getting an S rank on every stage on hard is up there with some of my best achievements.

Currently trying to get Ninja Jack in Far Cry Classic.

What a load of shite. The stealth is broken. These mother strawberry floaters would hear you light up a smoke from 2 miles away.

Got to a quarter of a million true achievement score the other day, and I'm pretty happy about it.

Posted this in the Xbox thread, but it’s relevant here because it’s a potential extra 1000 for free.

rinks wrote:There’s been a lot of fuss about Super Lucky’s Tale DLC. To start with, the original game and its DLC had to be delisted when the new version was released. To get round people being unhappy about not being able to buy the original DLC, they bundled free downloads of the original game and DLC in with the new version. But only if you bought it. Game Pass downloaders didn’t get the old-version DLC.

Cue much complaining, leading to the decision that they would provide free download keys to anyone who could prove they owned the original game. They we’re flooded with requests. So now, they’ve made the original two DLC packs completely free for everyone.

Yeah I downloaded them earlier. Still got the original game downloaded via Game Pass.

If any of you guys are thinking of giving Hotshot Racing a go (it’s fun, but some of the achievements look a little grindy), a word of advice: get on it quick. There’s an achievement for beating a downloaded ghost time in time trial mode. As far as I can tell, that means you’ve got to outrun one of the 30 fastest times posted worldwide on one of the 16 tracks. If you switch to the mirrored tracks, there are still some slow times (for now), making it easy, but it’s going to rapidly get harder (or near-impossible) to achieve as more people log times.

strawberry floating hell, I'll give that a miss. :lol:

Quake IV in 2005 should've taught everyone that online leaderboard achievements are bad, and everyone involved in them should feel bad.

Yeah, wasn’t there a Tiger Woods one too? Terrible idea.

Hotshot is really easy at the moment though. I did it first attempt once I found a crap time to beat. But those opportunities will disappear. If you get the game now (it’s in Game Pass) and prioritise that achievement, the rest are OK.
