Howdy everyone!

Its that time again and we're gathered together to celebrate the members that stood out in the contest. Before we get started however, its time to look at the games with gold and remind everyone about the currently running events on TA.

If you haven't already, don't forget to get your Alan Wake on this month. If you check out the TA Playlist Hub you will see statistics for tracked gamers, achievements won and discussions about the game - with and without spoilers.

Easter Egg Hunt 2017 is now well underway and we've got some eager hunters with more eggs in their baskets than we thought they'd be able to hold. As of the time I checked, v CARRNAGE had 202 eggs while Quickdontdie was close behind with 199 eggs. But don't get eggsasperated, there's another eggciting week of gathering to come!

  • PERIOD 13 OVERACHIEVER INTERVIEW:
This week we have all 5 members of Gankers' Reloaded.
1) What pushed you to 1st place this period?
Handydarkness: The community asked. We delivered. rock
KURSED SOULS: i'm going for 500k gamerscore
Mephisto4thewin: We wanted to stop the other team from stacking the badge. Plus it was good fun to knock a few games out.
Oriole2682: Stopping Metaladongs Assemble from stacking a badge for most score
ROGUE 1992: guess I just felt like shaking off the cobwebs


2) What do you consider to be the toughest game you've completed?
Handydarkness: Nothing notable. You can browse all 700 plus though if you wish.
KURSED SOULS: if you look at my card i'm not about completions and what i have completed is relatively easy
Mephisto4thewin: Nothing I would really call tough but a few longer ones; Project Spark, Borderlands 2, The Escapists.
Oriole2682: Scene It? Bright Lights! Big Screen!....even with a guide an extremely tough completion...took me two days to get the last two achievements.
ROGUE 1992: I'm not really sure I judge it like this if I've beaten it it can't be that hard.


3) What about achievement hunting attracts you?
Handydarkness: Prior to achievement hunting, it always bothered me on how does one consider a game complete? I actually used to keep a notebook of my completions as kid playing Sega genesis. It was actually fun completing those 58. (Still have the notebook lol)
KURSED SOULS: the gamerscore nothing better than looking at a list and figuring out how on getting the most gamerscore possible
Mephisto4thewin: I enjoy seeing my gamerscore climb up and up. Without the GTASC I doubt I'd have this much gamerscore but still I like playing things.
Oriole2682: Pretty much everything, I've always been a big stats guy and having so many stats on TA takes it to the next level.
ROGUE 1992: Just fun I suppose.


4) Which game deserves a sequel and why?
Handydarkness: Iron brigade. If you love mech shooters, tower defense, third person shooters, and own a Nintendo switch with a DDR PS3 game pad, this is the game for you. (Insert sarcasm among the latter of those)
KURSED SOULS: i love wrestling and one of my favorite games ever is WWE all stars and i would love to see a sequel
Mephisto4thewin: The Escapists for me loved playing that game. Dont really like the walking dead version so I would love a direct sequel.
Oriole2682: Hydro Thunder Hurricane, one of the best racers ever made and yet V-Unit made Beach Buggy Racing and a couple of Riptide GP's...not that there is anything wrong with those but a real HTH sequel would probably send the HTH Army into a frenzy!
ROGUE 1992: Lots of games need a sequel I personally would be happy with an onimusha warlords remake.


5) What 360 title do you look forward to seeing made Backwards Compatible (if any)?
Handydarkness: None. I have 360s in this room alone and still play the console quite frequently. I'm not knocking you if you spent $600.00 to play bc. When the system you had worked fine. It simply isn't my thing.
KURSED SOULS: dead island and dead island riptide
Mephisto4thewin: I dont play anything backwards compatible I have way too many 360s to not use them. For the people that do I hope all games go BC.
Oriole2682: I have ten working 360's, I don't really see the point of BC especially with that extra half gig file for every single BC game to emulate the 360, couldn't they have come up with a better design where you only had to do the half gig one time per console?
ROGUE 1992: None I've never used backwards compatibility


6) Is there anything else you would like to add?
Handydarkness: Thanks for making this contest my friend. Myself and obviously many members sincerely appreciate all the hard work you and many others have put in behind the scenes. See you next week for part two.
KURSED SOULS: get that gamerscore!
Mephisto4thewin: Thanks as always Planting for running a great comp. Thank you to everyone that competes in the GTASC and to all my TA friends for keeping my friend feed interesting.
Oriole2682: Thanks again for hosting what should be renamed the Gankers TrueAchivement Scoring Challenge :)
ROGUE 1992: Not to much I want to add just looking forward to December and the three beat.
Just think of the computing power in these guys houses! I'm suddenly glad I don't pay their electric bills shock
