Ok, I really hate GEARS and their matchmaking setup. That said starting next week I am going to piledrive this game into submission. I will be hosting my own TA session to finish off the rest of the online achievements. I have another 150 or so matches to pop for 1999 and I need to play through the co-op on Insane. Lastly I just need kills.
I also though I was going to be able to get Battlefield Bad Company 2 off my drive as well, but I do not have the Vietnam DLC like I thought I did. I do not want to spend 1200 MSP for that DLC. Looks like I will be stuck waiting for a sale. Between these two games my hard drive is using up 15+ gigs of space. I really want to free this up and then concentrate on some other games.
I need to step it up some if I want to get my bronze badge, I still have two opportunities to get it in the buffet and the genre of the month challenge. I just have to make some accurate calculations to land in just the right spot.

BEATING EA TO THE PUNCH
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (50/72 Achievements)
I'm playing through the multiplayer and it is going well. I am enjoying just playing the game and I have three achievements remain in the original 1000. I am also cleaning up the SPEC DLC, just need to get 50 more sniper kills.
Crysis 2 (32/50 Achievements)
The first play through is complete, I think it will be quite some time before I do the hard play through. I will concentrate on finishing the online achievements first. Maybe once I have that all done there will be a sale on the Crysis 1 arcade game. I am hoping this will shed better light on the overall story in the series since they are making a third game.
Battlefield 3 (27/43 Achievements)

Lego Batman (10/46 Achievement)
My buffet lego game is Batman. It is the 2nd least fun game of the series I have played so far. Mainly because there is no movie tie in I think and some of the missions can be hard to figure out. Luckily I found YouTube videos to help me out.
Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (DONE)
The last play through is done.
You're in the Movies (DONE)
Time to put some points into the Party badge. Having a zero point buffer would not have held up when the next badge update came around. I also add more buffet points to my pot and it gives me an idea what Kinect games will be like once I hook it up. Most annoying part of this game was the half second delay, the Kinect should be zero delay I hope.
Transformers: War For Cybertron (24/50 Achievement)
Gears of War 2 (69/79 Achievements)(Radar)
The Orange Box (79/99 Achievements)
