Been looking forward to doing this. Ran through all the other achievements on the day I got the game in late May. A good excuse to run play the game one more time.

Even if I liked the game I'd have refused to get it on principal because of this achievement.

If only they had a sale and made it 400MSP, I'd totally get it. Guess this will have to wait until next year.

I've had a reminder in my phone since I downloaded it. I've felt dirty ever since I got the Calendar Man achievement offline, so this will be some form of personal redemption!

Absolutely loved this game back in the day, and it was fun romping through it one more time. Unfortunately I was too impatient for the time stamp :(.

I don't think Cinematronics got money from the actual plays, they would have earned that $32 million by selling cabinets to arcades.

Looks like the cabinets cost $4,000 at the time, which was twice the cost of another cabinet, hence the $0.50 per play cost.

I miss arcades...cry
Job & A Social Life, achievements most gamers refuse to earn...therefore, their ratios are high.

Pretty much everyone already knows that. Many of us prefer a timestamp, and to do it the way it was intended.

Can't wait! I usually do the offline trick, but a game this special I really wanted to do it proper.

I only started this today, nearly forgot that this had the date achievement tomorrow until a friend mentioned this the other day.

Really enjoyed it too, first time i'd ever played it as this game is older than me laugh

That's me as well, Onyx. Wanted to get them all as fast as I could. However, out of respect and love for this game - and a wonderful time of my childhood - I'll be firing up the 360 at 12:01am. wink

Don't have the money to pick the game up yet unforunately. It will have to wait until next year.
