Sorry man, I've been a bit rubbish on this so far. We're away on holiday from Wednesday this week so I'll try to throw in some points before I go, but if you fancy having a bash at the weekly challenge I'm afraid you'll have to sort it between you and your bro. :)

No worries dude! I enjoyed the marathon Marooners session with my bro yesterday. We’re meeting up again next Sunday so we’ll have more than enough between the two of us to see us comfortably through and if you’re not going to be playing it should mean that coordinating the bonus should be pretty straightforward. Seems pretty easy really.

Plenty of points in the bag to see us comfortably through again this week but work stuff meant I wasn’t able to snag the bonus in GTASC. Utterly ridiculous concept but I do quite like Supermarket Shriek...

That's cool man, good work for seeing us safely through. I'll be back on Thursday so should be able to start contributing again from then.

I think we’re probably safe, I got a bit carried away yesterday playing Crackdown 3 and the new GWG title - so plenty of decay next week :slol:

157 Plats so far. So I'm on target of getting 200 plats by the end of this year.

Well I finally polished last minth’s GWG Marooners with the wife for my first completion in months. After a decent start to the year i’ve not really finished anything other than Crackdown 3 but with GTASC being about ratio rather than score this year the extra time required to complete games rather than cheese it with easy stuff might be worthwhile.

Holiday plus kids being at school has really put me behind the pace for my target. Coming up on requiring 400G per day now.

Bloody family getting in the way of our gaming :lol: . I’ve just started a 20 day summer holiday so planning to game tomorrow with the boy as I expect it will be too hot to stay outside for any length of time. Well done on your Trials Evolution completion dude - seriously impressive.

Thanks man, I'm getting Trials Rising for my birthday on Sunday (40, yikes!) so I've been trying to polish off the old games. Some of the DLC achieves on Fusion are absolutely horrible though.

Hope you have a good one dude! It’s my brother’s 40th next month too, hope it doesn’t dull your enthusiasm for the achievement grind ;) . Just unlocked a massive achievement in Big Crown Showdown that would see us safely through till next week.

That should be the bonus criteria met, now just trying to see how far we can make it up this week’s leaderboard. Going to do some online killer instinct later on now all the dlc comes with game pass, Some ridiculously high ratio stuff in Grip too for some very straightforward achievements.

On a completely different subject, my achievement hunting goal for the rest of the year is to try and get to 4,000 on Rare Replay but I'm almost at the point where every achievement is a mammoth task. 67 stamps left to get for Stampers Forever, but only 13 of them can come from the actual game itself, the rest will need to be picked up from six of the XBox 360 games from the list.

Jet Force Gemini is the last game I need to properly play through, with a single stamp needed from Blast Corps, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, Snake, Rattle and Roll, Battletoads and Conker's Bad Fur Day. Also got loose achievements on Grabbed by the Ghoulies and Battletoads(the turbo tunnel :dread: ).

That would be a pretty awesome completion but unfortunately beyond my gaming capability. I’ve seen videos of that Battletoads sequence :dread: . How anyone manage that without save states...

Managed to finish all the combat challenges in Batman Arkham Asylum.

All I need to do is beat the main story on hardest difficulty and the platinum shall be mine.

It's a combination of memory and reflexes - I've memorised the order of all the walls, but I'll be strawberry floated if I can get the message of what I want to do from brain to fingers fast enough.

It's little things stopping me from most of the last few achievements in the game now. One gold medal in Blast Corps, the final bosses of Snake, Rattle and Roll/Conker's Bad Fur Day, the last rat race in Battletoads and then I just need to work up the enthusiasm to play through Jet Force Gemini, which has aged horribly. After that's all done, I just need to play through the XBox era Rare games for the rest of the stamps!

Congrats, I remember that being tough. At one point I was planning to do the GOTY edition of AA, which has its own achievement list. But then I remembered the pain of doing those challenges and changed my mind. :lol:
