PermalinkGTASC 2018 - Period 21
Howdy! Are you skating your way along this period? Hopefully you pardon the horrible pun and instead pick up on the reference that this week EA has done something we don't often see from them. They brought 2 dead games back to life. Now... before you get too excited about the prospect of things returning to life - neither Skate 2 or Skate 3 were actually scheduled to close. Thanks EA for the revived achievements but you realize you missed an opportunity.. you could have got the Skate 3 viral up in time for the TA Viral event that recently completed. While you're thinking about old games that shouldn't have fallen offline - the Need for Speed series needs some attention wink

  • GAMES WITH GOLD:

Available Now
Xbox One: Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia
Xbox 360: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Available June 16th:
Xbox One: SMITE Gold Bundle (20 Gods and 50+ cosmetic items)
Xbox 360: LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues


Quantum Break is now on tap and if you haven't yet dipped into this one - now's a great chance. We're only a few days in so these numbers have quite some time to grow.

Here's how the community has progressed so far:
294 gamers are altering time. 97 stopped it for the first time. 34 completed the whole story. 3,303 achievements were unlocked for 77,565 Gamerscore for 101,601 TA score.

Viral Event 2018 has come to an end so here's hoping you were able to knock a few of those achievements off your to-do list. if you were a host and able to offer your time to infect the masses here on TA - many thanks! We should have a recap of the event up shortly.

Last period the bonus was offered to the Team side and it required both members to unlock at least 10 achievements on the Xbox 360 platform. As its one that requires scanning assistance - we'll get this one settled as soon as we can.

This period the bonus has swung back to the Solo side and the task they have is either very easy or relatively difficult depending on how you look at it. The task is to end the period with a ratio (TA/GS) under 1.2 - so that means you have to unlock relatively easy stuff to accomplish the task. However, you need at least 3,000TA worth of it to survive... so this can go both ways. Good luck to those that tackle this task!

No winners but there is a new addition for Shadowrunners out there.

  • OVERACHIEVER INTERVIEW:
Another solitary interview this period - we've got one member of Better than Keith and McLovin with us. A sad note, they did fall below the line and were eliminated earlier.
1) What pushed you to 1st place last period?
Tatey: My team plus 2nd place team decided we wanted to go back and play 'good' games and not just games for points due to time restraints our backlogs were growing and we were missing out on good releases so we decided to use all of our bonuses and have a little competition between ourselves for the last week and then both teams will more than likely be out in the next period.

2) Did you play anything you'd recommend?
Tatey: In that particular period? No. Not even slightly. They were all pretty much games for points.

3) Are you looking forward to E3? Is there anything in particular you want to hear about?
Tatey: I enjoy E3, its a huge event each year and I look forward to watching the streams and seeing what is coming up but nothing in particular.

4) What is the origin of your gamertag?
Tatey: Gamertag is my last name with a Y at the end

5) Given the chance to play any game you desire - what would you choose?
Tatey: Either world of warcraft or pokemon

6) How do you feel about the various games as a service programs out there? (EA Access, Game Pass)
Tatey: EA Access is brilliant value for money. Game Pass for users of this site is fairly redundant with the exception of new exclusives being brought in however I do subscribe because I support the idea and want them to develop it further

7) There are loads of stats TA keeps track of. Is there anything in particular that you try to improve?
Tatey: I am currently trying to improve completion percentage mainly by going back to clear up games I should have played and finished earlier, Red Dead, Witcher and many others like it

8) What was the last game you played that you thoroughly enjoyed?
Tatey: A Way out was absolutely brilliant and a fun co op experience with a decent story

9) What was your proudest game completion? What about it was so satisfying?
Tatey: Proudest Completion has to be trials fusion as that is a very difficult game. Trying to go for the series completion in trials but blood dragon does not seem like a trials game to me so its hard to go back to
