    This achievement requires paid content.

    To obtain this achievement, you need to unlock 5 Time Spender medals. Time spent playing the game is cumulative, so you do not have to do this in one play or even one day. Bronze, silver, and gold all count (Once per game)

    This type of medal can be earned in ranked or classic play. It can only be earned in games that you either own, are purchasing sessions with using the 40 MS point option, or on games that your console is licensed to (i.e. Someone else bought that game on your console). Medals can NOT be earned in demo play, or if you are using tokens to play a friend's machine.

    A chart of which games have which medals available, and the goals that must be met to get those medals is posted here:

    This achievement requires you get 5 time spender medals. You can obviously play the game for the alloted amount of time, but there is an alternate way. I suggest doing this after you've gotten the other two medals.

    All you need is a turbo controller, I used a Hori X-2. All you do is enter classic mode (not ranked) and then turn turbo on for the left trigger (the rewind button). Then go to sleep, go to work, hang out with friends, jump off a cliff, whatever.

    This will result in the game slowly rewinding as far back as it can go, and then it will move forward half a second and then rewind back, repeating it until you stop it. This will get you way more time then you need, but it will get you the medal, make it gold, and then give you time toward the time achievements (like matchstick eyes).

    Achievement will unlock when you end the game and it shows you the medals you've won, assuming that was your 5th, anyway.

    PugslyPuppyI jumped off a cliff. It hurt. I will try another method next time. ;)

    The easiest and cheapest way to get this achievement is the following

    Buy 5 one time plays of the following listed games these will get you 5 gold survivalist and 5 time spender medals. If you're unsure of exactly what to do try it in the demo first.

    The games
    Crystal Castles. In this game you pass levels if all the gems are off the screen (counts if enemies finish it off). Here you get to level 4. There are three green things in the corner--run into them while they're eating gems (I find this is right away). Then you can hide in the castle or whatever for 2 hours for gold time spender and survivalist--you'll need to waggle the controller (press A, whatever) here and there to keep the game running the time. (bonus play again for point buster--all you need to do is go on that path behind the first level and jump--there's a warp and will get you enough points for gold).

    Both Pinballs
    move the bumpers for 2 hours (or 1.5 for gold medals check the chart) Then play a game and try to do your best.

    Both Breakouts same deal here except you just move the flippers for awhile (one is 2 hours, another is 1.5). Then play a game and do your best to try to get a bronze point spender (try the control pad instead of the stick but this game is very hard)

    Less time is required if you just want the bronze medals obviously.
