PermalinkGTASC 2018 - Period 8
Hello ladies and gentlemen of all ages! Welcome to the Circus of Values! If you are looking for a tonic to fix that annoying neighbor, then look no further! Why settle for boring when there's breathtaking!

A few spoiler pyramids later and we've reached the end of another period. Let's look at what games we have for grabs this month as well as check in with the TA PLaylist and our Overachievers from Period 7.

  • GAMES WITH GOLD:

Available until March 15th
Xbox One: Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India
Xbox 360: Disney Pixar Brave: The Video Game

Available until the end of March
Xbox One: Trials of the Blood Dragon
Xbox 360: Quantum Conundrum

Available until April 15th
Xbox One: SUPERHOT


Its a new month and we're hanging out with our faithful dog. An amazing game that I wish I could help pass achievements for but alas, it seems my save file has disappeared. Hopefully you can join those guys playing Fable II this month.

371 gamers have played the game so far with 76 having started it this month. 15 completed it already. 3,551 achievements have been unlocked totaling 72,770 gamerscore which is worth 94,529 TA score.

  • BONUS RECAP:
Here's the list of Individuals that won last period's Dig Deeper bonus which asked folks to earn at least 3,000GS.

Of course, we also handed out a few Safety Benches to the new bonus winners.

This period the bonus is much simpler if not harder to complete. Underlings requires Teams to finish in the bottom (but not eliminated) 25% of the leaderboard. That means the bottom 89 teams that pass through will end up a bonus heavier.


SKOOT2006 is in for an old school romp with the Duke.

  • OVERACHIEVER INTERVIEW:

We've got the Overachievers of both contests rolled up into one team - We got nothing. They are both here for a little sit down.
1) What pushed you to 1st place this period?
InjuryProne19 - After the weekend it was within reach and I wanted to chat with Warren wink
Snatch Snake - Injuryprone and I usually talk about going for number one every Saturday and we usually we agree to see where we are Tuesday. Tuesday morning we were number 4 and I asked him if he wanted to go for it and he said possibly lets see how today goes. Then Tuesday night came and we didn't put up much points so we decided against it. then I woke up Wednesday morning and we were number 1 and I mean he straight up carried the team to the finish line over 18k so it was really him that did the leg work I was there for the ride.


2) Did you play anything you'd recommend?
InjuryProne19 - The Assembly. I love story-driven adventure games and this one has moral and philosophical questions that add an interesting element. Plus every game on Unreal Engine 4 is visually amazing.
Snatch Snake - Not Really a lot of indie games for me to get my score up. But more so recently I have enjoyed the game turnon and what remains of Edith finch. other then that I cant really recommend anything.


3) What are the origins of your gamertag?
InjuryProne19 - Whether you want to chalk it up to unlucky or clumsy, I had quite a few broken bones growing up so naturally "injury prone" became a moniker and inside joke. "InjuryProne" became my uncreative gamertag once I went Live and "19" was the age I was at the time.
Snatch Snake - The origins of my Gamer tag I had a generated Xbox name that sucked so a person I use to be friends with came up with some recommendations I just so happened to pick this one.


4) What is your favorite style of game? (RPG, FPS, etc) What about it makes that genre special to you?
InjuryProne19 - Adventure games. While they all vary in the amount of actual gameplay and mechanics, they all have a story to tell and can be told in a matter of hours.
Snatch Snake - I would have to say a fps. When the 360 game out call of duty 2 was my favorite and still is my favorite game of all time I really like the ww2 the history of ww2 and the sacrifices people man it has always appealed to me . I also did seriously 1.0 and call of duty world at war 10th prestige legit. those were the games I focused on before achievements so it kind of has stuck with me since.


5) If given the choice to replace a main character in a game with yourself (no special powers other than what you can muster now) which character would you take the place of?
InjuryProne19 - Elliot Ness in Blues & Bullets. Being a badass detective, teaming up with Al Capone and all in a dark, gritty noir; that's cool.
Snatch Snake - That one is Very Easy for me. Batman I have loved Batman since I was a kind when Batman animated series came on TV. I have seen the movies and animated movies more times then I can count. I also got to meet Adam West in March of 2017 right before he died and he was reading a Batman book and doing it in Batman's Voice. Probably my best experience of my Life in regards to Batman and Celebrities.


6) Which achievement would you say you are happiest to be done with?
InjuryProne19 -
Killer InstinctHardcoreThe Hardcore achievement in Killer Instinct worth 350 pointsDefeat Gargos on Godlike difficulty

Snatch Snake - That is a tough one. Happy because of the Ratio nba2k14 LeBron's Path to Great its a 17 Ratio and I was 3rd to complete the game and I didn't have the preorder Bonus so it started me at a big disadvantage. Skill wise Batman Arkham series Combat and Predator challenges in my opinion very tough and sometimes Controller breaking.


7) Do you watch the opening cutscenes and cinematics in games or are you more likely to skip when given the chance?
InjuryProne19 - Depends on the genre but usually yes I watch them. Games like puzzles and platformers I tend to skip since there is little substance.
Snatch Snake - Sometimes like if it is just a game for achievements then no But like Red Dead and Red dead 2 I will be watching all of it.


8) Is there anything else you'd like to add?
InjuryProne19 - After such wonderful compliments and praise on my first walkthrough (Fearful Symmetry & The Cursed Prince) I have decided to do more. Like all of us, I have used my fair share of the great guides on this site and now it's time I contribute. I'm currently working on my second walkthrough and have two others planned already. So if you want to follow along please follow my blog where I post weekly. Thanks!
Snatch Snake - Thanks to Injuryprone for carrying us through the trenches and getting us first this week. also congrats to him for getting first in the solo side. Thanks to Hitman, Edleson, Injury, Buddha, Cheetos, Dunn, Bk Lucky, Shezbot and more people then I can name for the fun times playing Video games with. To everyone else Please enjoy gaming. Enjoy Life and Please keep unlocking the achievements. I'm Batman
