PermalinkGTASC 2017 - Period 39
Celebrate good times, Come on!

Here we are with another look at what's happening in the GTASC, the Games with Gold program as well as a look around TA.

Alien: Isolation is on our collective plates. A little over a week into the month, here is what the TA community has accomplished. Only 9 have completed it since last recap so this seems to be a slow burner like Dark Souls.

463 gamers played the creepfest. 127 started it and 15 completed it. 3,126 achievements have been unlocked for 47,120 Gamerscore which is worth 94,489 TrueAchievement score.

The final period of Group Stage is now in progress. Are you still in the running for the Knockout stages? Remember the top 256 move on to the Head to Head proper. Also, you needed to have met certain conditions upon registration so anyone that doesn't have a green checkmark on the leaderboard will not move into the Head to Head mode. That means there are 17 folks below the 256 line that will make it into Eliminations as of the time I write this. As we saw today, we can stay in the Just for Fun competition (and receive more matches) even if eliminated from the Knockout rounds.

  • BONUS RECAP:
What's the Point? was the bonus on tap last period and it required Individuals to unlock at least 7 - 0G achievements. 19 were able to complete it.
This period the Teams are tasked with Alphamatised. Its one of the bonuses added by the winners of last year. It requires you to end the period with your teams order of scoring also being alphabetical by gamertag. (need 5) (A-Z High to Low scoring so gamer A should score the most and Z the least) This may mess with teams that have a member who isn't as active as the others.

No new winners.

  • PERIOD 38 OVERACHIEVER INTERVIEWS:
This period we have most of Vicious and Delicious along with us as well as the Solo Overachiever.
1) Did you play anything you'd recommend last period?
Danno Omen: Its starting to get hard to remember what i played what period since we are playing so many different games. The only thing that sticks out to me from last week is NBA 2K18. I love how this franchise,and sports games in general have started to embrace making campaigns with a story,it makes them that much more enjoyable to me.
DaXXaa: I really liked The Assembly, so that game would i recommend.
oxy71: totally addicted to plague inc.
SnipedByAGir1: I started playing This is the Police last week. Didn't get too far into it, because I wasn't getting many achievements in it, but I was really intrigued by the game. Sort of a police station sim, while having to deal with the mob on the side too. I'll definitely go back to this one once this competition is over.
Stevano61 PB2A: Thanks to the wonderful spelling bonus, I highly recommend WHEELS OF AURELIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In all seriousness, NHL 18 yet again! (I cannot stress this enough), Madden 18, FIFA 18 & Forza Horizon 3 are all wonderful in their own way and need to be played by everyone.


2) Do you play anything 'just for fun'? If so, what is your guilty pleasure?
Danno Omen: Lately no,the time for playing for fun was up months ago now that GTASC is getting down to the elite teams and scoring as much as possible is a must. I dont really have a specific game or franchise that is my guilty pleasure but i guess the closest thing would be the NBA 2K franchise.
DaXXaa: That would be Guitar hero games. I´m just playing on medium/high level just for fun and enjoy to be able to interact with good music that I like.
oxy71: Trivia with friends
SnipedByAGir1: I play all games just for fun laugh. There's just some games I have way more fun playing than others. I really want to get back to playing the Final Fantasy series.
Stevano61 PB2A: For fun? My team would call me hypocritical if I didn't say NHL..... but a game I completed a long time ago, and a game I still enjoy for fun is Slender: The Arrival. Still on my Hard Drive and it's not going anywhere.


3) What is your favorite comfort food? Gaming takes its toll on us you know...
Danno Omen: Anything to do with a potato lol. My girlfriend gets sick of me making them all the damn time but i could literally eat some form of potatoes every night and be happy.
DaXXaa: Taco. I love it and it´s easy to prep so It´s enough for the whole weekend so I have more time to game.
oxy71: Ice cream but trying to be good so haven’t had it in a while
SnipedByAGir1: I like to snack out on dill pickle crispers. Usually when I'm gaming I forget to eat though ...
Stevano61 PB2A: I'd rather not eat when I game. Don't wanna have greasy thumbsticks. Outside of gaming, I enjoy chips.


4) What made you chose your gamerpic?
Danno Omen: My gamerpic comes from the first Medal of Honor,and it was i believe only available in canada so it was a pretty unique one and ive just never changed it.
DaXXaa: It is almost an exact a copy of me, if I would be a cartoon figure. It was an obvious picture for me.
oxy71: It’s me lol
SnipedByAGir1: My 360 gamerpic is Mass Effect. My favorite game so easy choice. My Xbox One pic is my favorite impromptu selfie I took with my kids when I was trying to lay down on the couch and they decided to jump on me.
Stevano61 PB2A: Microsoft's selection on the One isn't that great for gamerpics. Definitely can't find one that's unique, so I just uploaded a picture of myself from the Honda Indy Toronto 2014. Was a great day.


5) How would you say your gaming has changed since visiting TA?
Danno Omen: Honestly im not sure TA has changed my gaming so much so as GTASC has changed it. I used to never care about achievement lists and would just buy whatever interests me,but now because of GTASC i am checking daily for new games with easy achievements for quick points. I used to say id never put Avatar,fallout pc etc etc on my card but this comp has made me do said things.
DaXXaa: Completely. It really boosted my interest for hunting achievements. And just not only for achievements but also news in general for games.
This has also led me to open up my mind for much more games and genres.
oxy71: Was less then 20k ta score when I found this site. Now it’s an addiction.
SnipedByAGir1: I find I don't start a lot of new games anymore, unless people have started updating achievement tags, providing solutions or walkthroughs. Luckily with this community all of that happens in pretty short order.
Stevano61 PB2A: How has it changed.... well I certainly have more achievements, that's for sure! The TA scoring system is sort of addicting too, when it comes to seeing achievement values.


6) Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Danno Omen: A big congrats to the top 3 teams overall on reaching over 1 million TA so far. That is a huge number and massive accomplishment. Good job team on another week.
DaXXaa: It´s my first year in GTASC and I have really liked it. It´s a fun challenge for me to be consistent and stay over the line each week.
oxy71: Four weeks in first is pretty cool
SnipedByAGir1: I still love my team smile
Stevano61 PB2A: Winter is coming.
