Not sure why I posted an update in the middle of the month. Here's a proper post-Feb update post.

Overall preload status
Time: 79% (1144/1440 minutes)
Gamerscore: 25,000
TrueAchievement: 79,000

February preloads
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin Achievements - 14 achievements for 480G, 1100TA
Knight Squad Achievements - 9 achievements for 1000G, 1800TA
10 Second Ninja X Achievements - 6 achievements for 500G, 1900TA
Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge Achievements - 7 achievements for 110G, 166TA

Status report
I made great strides in February, knocking down one game from my active backlog, one new platformer, and two quick games I'd gotten for free. I also bought the Instant Indie Hits bundle, with 10 games for $20 I will be able to preload thousands of gamerscore over the next few months. I will definitely reach my goal of 24 hours' worth of preloaded achievements by the end of the year.

March goals
Finish Viva Piñata Achievements and Kameo: Elements of Power Achievements
Continue achievement streak

Current status:
76% preloaded. Time: 18 hours. 650 achievements for 25,000 gamerscore and 77,000 TA.

I preloaded Knight Squad and marked down all the fast achievements for The Jackbox Party Pack and Goat Simulator (Xbox One) which had been sitting in my collection. There are no comparable games left I could do that with. I also finally finished preloading Rare Replay's on-disc achievements, except Stampers Forever, for which I just need to earn gamerscore in some more of the constituent Xbox 360 games.

I'm focusing more on my backlog than on preloading at the moment. Though I will preload as much as possible in every game, the likes of Assassin's Creed and Borderlands aren't the most conducive to preloading. Not like Goat Simulator, anyway. As I pre-complete each game, I set the status in my collection to On Hold, moving it out of my active backlog. My goal is to get that backlog down to thirty games by the end of the year, or finishing one game per month. It's going well so far. Already pre-completed Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin with 460G and 1100TA preloaded. Next month's target is looking to be Viva Piñata Achievements.
