Permalink7 Games, 7 Days, 7 Achievements - The Change Up (Week 4)
Nothing much has happened to me this week, the misses has been on holiday so i would of thought lots of gaming would of gone on, but actually not so true. Got bored really quickly, worked out & watched TV and just chilled. Unfortunately couldn't go out anywhere because of the riots that we're happening all over the UK, the main ones were in london & birmingham (where i'm from) so it was pretty crazy. Must put a R.I.P. out to the three guys who we're killed defending their community last week, really brave of them. So yeah thats whats happened with me.

So i got 5 out of 7 achievements this week, missing out on http://www.trueachievements.com/Grand-Theft-Auto-IV-xbo....htm due to the woman never being available for Nico to "impress" her & WET because i just couldn't get into the right mindset to play it, aside from that the Summer of Arcade is still going strong and http://www.trueachievements.com/Fruit-Ninja-Kinect-xbox....htm came out this week, i was very excited for it and managed to 200/200 it within 2 hours :) along with that i also got 200/200 in http://www.trueachievements.com/Golden-Axe-xbox-360.htm with the help of munchmagic86. That is really all that happened, not much i know so lets get onto the achievements.
On a side note i have changed up the genre's & stuff this week, i'm thinking of doing it every 4 weeks so i don't get bored with doing a racing one each week etc.

This week:
Games picked by: http://www.trueachievements.com/Disturbed+x360a.htm
Achievements picked by: DefinitelyDead

Achievement #1:
The MawDestroyer of YumsThe Destroyer of Yums achievement in The Maw worth 13 pointsFind and eat 200 Yums.

What a sweet achievement tile, bad that what you have to do is eat the cute little things, wanted to get The Maw done for a while now, so this should give me the kick up the backside to do it.

Achievement #2:
UNODevoteeThe Devotee achievement in UNO worth 42 pointsWin 40 games of UNO®.

Last achievement i need on Uno, have no idea how many wins i have, can't really be bothered to play online so grinding it in single player sounds fun!

Achievement #3:
Forza Motorsport 3Driver Level 10The Driver Level 10 achievement in Forza Motorsport 3 worth 12 pointsReach Driver Level 10 in Season Play mode.

Not such a bad one here, need to get back into Forza with 4 coming out in a couple of months, it looks so darn good!

Achievement #4:
Left 4 DeadRed MistThe Red Mist achievement in Left 4 Dead worth 42 pointsKill 1000 Infected with a mounted machine gun.

And now we get into the superior grind, 1000 kills! WHAT!! according to the guide here it doesn't take too long on the last level of No Mercy which is reassuring but still, not cool.

Achievement #5:
BioShock 2Secret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in BioShock 2 worth 33 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

Haven't played this DLC yet but i've been told it's excellent, can't wait!

Achievement #6:
Crysis 2City That Never SleepsThe City That Never Sleeps achievement in Crysis 2 worth 45 pointsComplete 6 levels on Veteran difficulty

Well i've been putting off doing my super soldier play through but with september coming in thick & fast i best get the rest of the Crysis achievements done before the dedication achievement unlocks.

Achievement #7:
BorderlandsThe CollectorThe The Collector achievement in Borderlands worth 73 pointsCompleted Tannis' crazy request

I don't even know if i'm going to be able to do this, it's in the newest DLC i'm not even an inch through the main game, can't see this one happening but i'll give it a shot.

My Personal 2011 Goal: 100 Completed Games By 2012 – Slowly but surely i'm getting there, i said i'de get to 72 and i did. I'm hoping for 75 this week but i'm not holding my breath, at least i know that in the GSL this number is going to shoot up.

Super Grind: Seriously 2.0 – No comment :(

Kinect Game Grinder: UFC Personal Trainer – Really been going for it this week, but i'm thinking that i might not do the 30 day workouts due to the spike in training is quite high even for the lowest level and i can't really take it, so once i'm slightly more rehabilitated i'm going to shoot for the long workouts for now i'm still going for the 100 days in a row, 7 days down.

Personal Challenge: This week i'm feeling http://www.trueachievements.com/Borderlands-xbox-360.htm, i know i have one of the achievements in it, but to get up to level 30 in it.

Most Played This Week:
UFC Personal Trainer - 9 Hours
Assassins Creed: Brotherhood - 5 Hours
Fruit Ninja Kinect - 2 Hours
Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet - 2 Hours

Hope everyone enjoyed reading, check back next week :)

Permalink7 Games, 7 Days, 7 Achievements - Better Late Than Never (Week 3)
This week has been quite crazy really, the misses has gone on holiday for a week so that means more time to game. But i think i'm using the time to get some older games done, I've been asked to be in a team for the x360a GamerScore League so i'm not going to be doing easy gamerscore games until early september. Along with all of that had lots of doctors appointments early mornings, crazy times. I also saw Super 8, it's definitely an interesting movie, really want to watch it again now though. Thats about it really i can't see anything else to put so i really should stop typing.

So this week i managed to get 2 out of 7 achievements, i had so much on my plate this week, that this took the back-seat for a while. On the plus side i managed to 1000/1000 http://www.trueachievements.com/Assassins-Creed-Brother....htm, all of the multiplayer boosted on saturday, the reason this blog isn't up till now. And also started http://www.trueachievements.com/UFC-Personal-Trainer-xb....htm which i be using as one of my grinding titles due to me not really having time to do the music game but knowing myself i'll probably find time to do music games.
But anyway, enough about me lets get to the achievements!
Also if you would like to keep track of how i'm doing, check my To-Do list and that shows how many achievements i've got left and which ones i'm struggling on.

This week:
Games picked by: http://www.trueachievements.com/Disturbed+x360a.htm
Achievements picked by: DefinitelyDead

Achievement #1:
DiRTFWD Rally VeteranThe FWD Rally Veteran achievement in DiRT worth 23 pointsCongratulations! You have won every official FWD Rally event in career mode.

Story related goodness here, just making me get more achievements, always fun times.

Achievement #2:
Castle CrashersKay Eye Ess EssThe Kay Eye Ess Ess achievement in Castle Crashers worth 22 pointsCollect all 4 princesses' kisses in a multiplayer game.

Really not sure how long this one will take, but using trusty TA i've got a gaming session for it and hopefully we'll be able to do it quickly.

Achievement #3:
KinectimalsHit The SurfThe Hit The Surf achievement in Kinectimals worth 41 pointsVisited Fiddler's Beach for the first time in your own game.

Because i'm surfing, surfing USA!! Really wanting to keep Kinectimals until the GSL but getting a couple of achievements won't hurt!

Achievement #4:
Grand Theft Auto IVWarm CoffeeThe Warm Coffee achievement in Grand Theft Auto IV worth 6 pointsYou were invited into your girlfriend's house.

BAM!! What a pimp of an achievement, thats all i have to say about this.

Achievement #5:
WETHead to HeadThe Head to Head achievement in WET worth 21 pointsComplete Chapter 12 on any difficulty setting (Story Mode).

Well hopefully i'll be able to get this Wet achievement done this time *fingers crossed* because i really loved this game.

Achievement #6:
Guitar Hero 5OutgoingThe Outgoing achievement in Guitar Hero 5 worth 38 pointsGave Pro Face Off a shot

Now i'm hoping to be able to get this without a session but i don't know how actively people play this game anymore, but at least it isn't win 25 games just play them.

Achievement #7:
Left 4 Dead 2THE REAL DEALThe THE REAL DEAL achievement in Left 4 Dead 2 worth 98 pointsSurvive a campaign on Expert skill with Realism mode enabled.

Thankfully i'm being given a helping hand with this one, so it won't be too hard, still dreading it though!

My Personal 2011 Goal: 100 Completed Games By 2012 – So this week i had a few completions, ranging from http://www.trueachievements.com/A-World-of-Keflings-xbo....htm & http://www.trueachievements.com/Brink-xbox-360.htm, granted Brink was only the DLC but glad that it's back as a completion now, I'm at 70 now hopefully i'll get atleast 2 more completions this week.

Super Grind: Seriously 2.0 – Once again not had time to do this but i am determined to do it this week, if i do an hour on UFC and then an hour on Gears a day then in theory i should be good!

Kinect Game Grinder: UFC Personal Trainer – So this really helps because i want to get fit so i thought instead of a music game grind achievement, i'll put in a Kinect one in, with UFC being one of the kinect titles which you have to play for at-least 270 days i've started that long road.

Personal Challenge: Really haven't got a personal challenge for this week, just to get a couple of stories done on games i think, but it won't be set it stone, might start finish some old things off, depends how i'm feeling.

Most Played This Week:
Assassins Creed: Brotherhood - 13 Hours
Brink - 8 Hours
From Dust - 6 Hours
Dead Rising 2 - 3 Hours

Not much has happened this week with me, apart from finding out i might have Agoraphobia, but have to go the doctors to confirm/deny if this is true. On the plus side to all of this i got to see Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Captain America: The First Avenger, both amazing movies! But i enjoyed Captain America a lot more, and the avengers trailer at the end was AHHHHH words can't describe :D

Gaming then?
Apart from the 2 Kinect Fun Labs titles i haven't really done much apart from this blog, haven't really been able to do the grinding achievements, I did start From Dust and having lots of fun with the summer of arcade, really hoping to get that 200'd by next week. Along with that i owned http://www.trueachievements.com/Kinect-Adventures-xbox-....htm getting all but 4 achievements, i'm also hoping to get that 1000'd or at least 980. I also finished A Kingdom For Keflings which took me about a day, thats about it for this week.
So lets get on with the achievements:

Achievement #2:
Call of Duty ClassicUnion JackThe Union Jack achievement in Call of Duty Classic worth 34 pointsComplete the British missions.

Achievement #3:
UFC Personal TrainerWon't Back DownThe Won't Back Down achievement in UFC Personal Trainer worth 105 pointsSuccessfully complete 10 Xbox LIVE Challenges.

No I Won't BACK DOWN! I Don't know if there is many people playing this game so it might be quite hard to get this, but hopefully someone will help. *Hint Hint*

Achievement #7:
Dead Rising 2Duct Tape FTWThe Duct Tape FTW achievement in Dead Rising 2 worth 64 pointsCreated all combo weapons. Now put them to use!

This might take me a while, i'm going to have to start a new story. Plus side to this means i can get a couple more achievements out of that play through.

From 64 to 68, with the completions of http://www.trueachievements.com/Bulletstorm-xbox-360.htm & http://www.trueachievements.com/A-Kingdom-for-Keflings-....htm and then a couple of Kinect Fun Labs, 32 more to go! I'm going to try and get up to 70 this week.

Super Grind: Seriously 2.0 –
Didn't manage to get anything on this, this week but i think when i wake up i'm going to do an hour each morning and that should give me about 10,000 kills a week. Sounds okay to me.

Music Game Grinder: Perfect Perfectionist –
Same as above here, but i'm actually starting on this when i submit this blog so i won't be putting it off anymore!

Personal Challenge:
This week is to get 1000/1000 in Thor: God of Thunder got this from LOVEFiLM last week so i need to have some incentive to get this done, it's crazy though that this easy game has 3,000 TA Score. I'm in the money!

Most Played This Week:
Kinect Adventures - 10 Hours
A Kingdom For Keflings - 9 Hours
From Dust - 6 Hours
Saints Row 2 - 4 Hours

Most Played All Time:
I Won't be doing a most played all time because it's not really changing anymore, i'm playing old games to get my completion up, so not really any need for this.
