    Days again?

    Days and different games.. Bit of a rough one this month but manageable. I'll have to see what open world games are on the backlog

    It feels like these were announced slightly earlier this month though, happy about that

    Is bean dive recovery for 9 achievements in 9 different games? Or can it be 9 achievements in 1 game started before August? If it's 9 different games, I think that's a bit much since the vast majority don't participate in the bean dive.

    If it's 9 different games, it's a bad decision.

    I like the backlog oriented ones. Looking forward to it!

    I didn't take part in the Bean Dive so I also would like to know if it's 9 different games. This target seems rough
    There's no such thing as too much bacon !

    It's nothing to do with the bean dive other than taking inspiration. You just have to get achievements in any games you've already started, rather than starting a new game in August. You can always start some easy games in the next couple of days if you're worried

    And yes, it very clearly says 9 different games. Again, I don't see the issue unless you've got a 100% completion percentage and even so it's been announced before hand so you can easily start games before August starts.

    I think it's 9 different achievements in 9 different games, as in 1 per game. Could be wrong though.

    I think 9 achievements in 9 started games might be literally impossible for me smile

    Just started Monster hunter world, (Just looked at it, MonHun isn't open world. Still got a few in the backlog)
    ~been meaning to mop up games I started a bit ago, and getting 1 pop a day won't be hard.
    Another round of gold (hopefully) here we come laugh

    Isn’t the Bean Dive target screwing over anyone who didn’t sign up for it, or for anyone who already finished it? Or am I missing something?
  • Posted on 28 July 22 at 12:18
    Again, easy!

    Get an achievement in a game you didnt start on August of 2022, basically any game you've not 100% finished will count. Even start some easy games in the next couple days then get an achievement in them in August

    Not too fussed on achievement days again though, what about a target like "total achievements in a month"

    Unlock 1 achievement in 9 different games (9 achievements in total). You have do that in whatever game you've already started, any game you have not 100% achievements on.

    Game 1 - Unlock an achievement
    Game 2 - Unlock an achievement
    .......
    .......
    Game 9 - Unlock an achievement

    Gonna go against the grain here.

    I love the '9 different games' target. I jump between games as it is, so dead simple.

    Open World will allow me to crack open Lego Dimensions again.

    The 20 different days achievement is a given.

    Nice!

    I'm very glad with this new feature on the site, it's always a pleasure.

    But two negative points in my opinion:
    1/ I often finish them before we hit the middle of the month, meaning it's too easily/quickly done,
    2/ this feature is still recent, but how many times did we get the achievements/days Target? Is TA staff already out of stock of ideas? cry

    Oh okay the Bean Dive target name confused me, glad nobody is getting screwed over here. Currently at 29 new games started this month so I definitely won't have a problem with this one haha.

    It would be nice if they made a post where we could make suggestions for future targets and then they can put it to a vote. Alsothis needs it's own forum!

    I like the medals, gets me playing stuff I wouldn't normally do. Bit of a shame for any folk on holiday during August as they will struggle to get the days gold medal.
    I shall be going for all 3 again, dipping into the backlog.
    Happy Gaming

    Unfortunately targets is now another TA challenge that is an issue for completionists, I rarely have 9 games started at any one time

    I get the concept, but not having a started back log of games is an issue once again. At least in the others I could include Game Collection games

    Normally I would just suck it up at start a few games before the 1st, but I’m on track to hit a triple milestone and starting that many new games will mess it up

    A shame really, need more completionists on the events team wink
