Hunting for Achievements (Not the Race to 250,000 TA Score)
Today we take a different approach than the one I've had over the last few months. In fact, this isn't even part of my overall aim (theoretically).

For the past six months or so I've had this aim of getting to a 250,000 TrueAchievement score before the end of this year, that alone has left unlocking actual achievements as a bit of an afterthought and meant that I have mainly been concentrating on the achievements that have the best effect on my score. Today is going to be a bit different though boys and girls, but first, a mini recap.

Apart from bringing out the elderly version of me and cracking on with unlocking a couple of achievements in Microsoft Jigsaw , I've been hearing the "Bloop" a fair few times over these past couple of days. 7 achievements in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris have passed, this afternoon I finished the main game by defeating the final boss. I can't be the only person who gets irritated by that ridiculous English accent that she has which is pretty much in no ways English in the slightest. I'm yet to meet an actual person who talks in that "Tally Ho!" way, but I guess that's the American view of English culture...

Today I also decided to start up on the remake of Phantom Dust, it's actually a pretty unique type of game in a sense, it's effectively an RPG, but the battle system is pretty akin to the Dragon Ball Xenoverse way of battling, but utilizing Action Points in order to perform an attack or defense. I can see myself enjoying this game, I'm sure I'll be using it to gain a fair few TA Score for upcoming periods of GTASC, but I think I'd be best leaving the game alone for a short while until everything becomes a bit more standardized (especially as I am expecting a fair whack over the coming weeks from my achievements in Giana Sisters this week.)

The one game that has contributed plenty of achievements though is Minecraft: Xbox One Edition. It is free for this weekend so I decided that I needed to get targeting the achievements as soon as possible, and I was amazed at how straight forward the 19 I have picked up so far have been. It only took around 45 minutes to reel them all off, and it has moved me up nearly 500 places on the Achievements Won Leaderboard. I can't really complain at that kind of progress and it's exactly the kind of game I'd been looking for in a sense of popping as many achievements as possible over a short period of time. I did show my sadistic tendencies though by slaughtering two pigs in front of their child and then tried feeding the piglet his parents chops. As soon as I opened the gate to his pen he was straight out the door and as far away from me as possible... But I just wanted that achievement for eating a pork chop :(

The 905 TA Score I have picked up today should be enough now to see me through to the next period of GTASC, so that means I can target a few more achievements before the start of the next period. I'm not going to lie though, I am fairly confident that I can have the 3,500 TA Score required during next week's period boxed off by Monday evening though, but that's another story...

Tonight sees me targeting more of these low scoring straight forward achievements, so here's my list of 10 for this evening...

#1 & #2 - Make It Rain: The Love of Money
A couple of achievements for buying investments in the game that work out at just 57 TA Score. The great thing about these two achievements is that I can leave the macro running on the laptop whilst playing on the Xbox, it may take me an hour or so to actually get them, but it's not going to distract me from going for achievements on the console at the same time.

#3 & #4 - Battle Island: Commanders
These are two very basic achievements, one for sharing a replay with an alliance, and another for donating a unit. Again, low scoring in nature (just 25 TA Score combined), but two achievements for a couple of minutes of gameplay.

#5, #6 & #7 - Jetpack Joyride
Three more pretty bog standard achievements here. One for clicking the 'share' button after a run, one for getting fried a few times, and one for picking up a specific number of coins in a run, just 29 TA Score in total from these, but three more achievements to add to the list.

#8 - Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris
Walkthrough, pick up 5 red skulls on the first mission, achievement pops worth 7 TA Score, job done!

#9 & #10 - Ryse: Son of Rome
Two achievements available for completing the next part of the campaign mode. It shouldn't take me long in all honesty, it's worth just 77 TA Score for the two of them, but it's an easy couple of pops that shouldn't take me too long to accomplish.


I honestly think that these 10 achievements should take me a couple of hours MAX and would be a steady addition to the other 32 I have picked up over the course of today. As soon as these 10 are popped I'm going to be concentrating on working through Banjo-Tooie before going to sleep, I still have a fair bit of work to do on this one but as it's a straightforward but low-scoring game I just want to focus on adding another completed title to my list, plus it works wonders for the big scoring achievements in Rare Replay.

Looking at the Store and I feel that I may be obliged to purchase the Team17 Indie Collection before it gets pulled from the sale. I already have two of the titles in the collection, but the £15.75 price tag for an additional 8 Titles & 1 DLC worth 182 Achievements and 27,505 TA Score is nothing to be sniffed at.

And I'm adding these games here for my own reference too...

Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime £0.84 - 12 Achievements - 351 TA Score - 6-8 Hours
Small Arms - £0.84 - 12 Achievements - 420 TA Score - 4-5 Hours
Haunted House - £0.84 - 12 Achievements - 511 TA Score - 6-8 Hours
Hardwood Backgammon - £0.84 - 12 Achievements - 283 TA Score - 3-4 Hours
Interpol - £0.84 - 12 Achievements - 233 TA Score - 2-3 Hours
Hardwood Hearts - 12 Achievements - 312 TA Score - 6-8 Hours
NIN2-JUMP - £0.84 - 12 Achievements - 259 TA Score - 2-3 Hours
Crystal Quest - £0.84 - 12 Achievements - 303 TA Score - 4-5 Hours
Mutant Blobs Attack £1.59 - 14 Achievements - 619 TA Score - 6-8 Hours
KOF98UM - £1.68 - 12 Achievements - 314 TA Score - 1-2 Hours
Ticket To Ride - £1.68 - 12 Achievements - 438 TA Score - 6-8 Hours
Braid - £1.68 - 12 Achievements - 303 TA Score - 6-8 Hours
Monday Night Combat - £1.68 - 12 Achievements - 281 TA Score - 6-8 Hours
Word Puzzle - £1.68 - 12 Achievements - 348 TA Score - 4-5 Hours
The Maw - £1.68 - 12 Achievements - 365 TA Score - 5-6 Hours
Bomberman Battlefest - £1.68 - 12 Achievements - 399 TA Score - 2-3 Hours
Omega Five - £1.68 - 12 Achievements - 424 TA Score - 3-4 Hours
GAROU MOW - £1.68 - 12 Achievements - 388 TA Score - 2-3 Hours

18 Games = £23.43 = 218 Achievements


It's a list of easy enough cheap completions that I can add to the collection before the sale ends...

That's it for now, until the next update, Keep Gaming and Keep Scoring!

Only 1/3 through the game but RiME is every bit as beautiful as I hoped. Good platforming and fun, not difficult puzzles with a moderate length. Perfect.
