Unlock all achievements

    So is it just hit and miss in terms of who does and doesn't pop it right now? We can see from the page that people are still popping it each day, so it's definitely not a case where it's glitched for everyone.

    *Speculation ahead*

    Here's what I'm wondering: I would bet that the game data records when you unlock certain achievements (within the game itself separate from Xbox's achievement system), and that's how it tracks whether or not you've unlocked all achievements. So if you were to unlock an achievement but then quit out of the game before it saves, you'd have the achievement, but the game save data would not have that achievement recorded. The result then would be that you'd have the achievement, but the part of the game that's actually tracking your progress toward that big final achievement doesn't think you do.

    So, has anyone tried playing the game a second time WHILE ALSO making sure to do all the things required for the achievements in that second playthrough even though the achievements are already unlocked? A few people in this thread have tried similar approaches (finishing the game without doing BMO's analyze move, or failing the first interrogation), and I did see one other person ask a similar question to what I'm asking here, but can anyone confirm that they have done exactly this and had it not work? Again, this is all speculation, but the achievement clearly isn't broken entirely since people are still getting it, so there's got to be some kind of workaround.

    It's never been glitched for everyone, pre or post update. It's just basically a coin flip whether it works or not. As for your theory, I assume achievements like this check to see if you have every achievement when you unlock one. When it glitches, you no longer have any achievements to unlock, so it no longer checks to see if you've unlocked every achievement, even if you "earn" an achievement again in a second playthrough. I do believe a few games with this problem have been patched to perform just such a check, but I can't think of a name off the top of my head. Perhaps some games don't work like that though.

    As for replaying the game unlocking everything, I could have sworn I saw a comment from someone saying they tried it with no luck, but the solution it was commented on seems to be gone.

    I still see a lot of people unlocking this one, so I'm wondering if anyone can chime in if it has glitched on them recently. Not doubting that it has happened, but I'm interested to hear when the most recent occurrence of the glitch was. That way, we can track when patches seem to have not fixed, improved, or outright fixed the glitch.

    I think it would be helpful information for anyone who might be hesitant about starting a new game with a hit-or-miss achievement like this one.

    Got the last one this morning. Saved one achievement for after I pulled the plug. Started new game and Overstonked the four banana guards during the tutorial fight. Got Quadrilateral and Pirates of the Enchiridion. Game completed, so achievement is still glitchy apparently, but doable.

    I got the 1000 last night following this guide. Popped the complete all achievements with level 10 jake after grinding in the fire kingdom and it popped straight away so it is very much doable still... If it helps anyone i always quit game and let it load to the starting menu before i turned console off.

    I just got my 1000G by playing normally. The patch was released the day I was mopping up my last achievements. What are the odds...?

    Checked the list of all games and that the game was updated 12 April?

    Just opened the game, selected continue, and the achievement popped!

    It looks like they may have fixed it?
