PermalinkTrophy Case Tour
Hey all, I thought I would take a moment to give a little tour of my Trophy Case. I see that you can't leave notes on them or on the Trophy Case itself so I thought I'd throw in a bit of my reasoning for adding them here! I'll update this blog as I add notable achievements to the case. Thanks for reading!

Game: Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Achievement: A Day To Remember
Description: Halo CE: Play Halo: CE on the 15th of any month.
Note: This is my very first achievement under my preferred gamertag of Vindibudd. Vindibudd was my original Xbox Live gamertag when I had the original Xbox but was unavailable when I got around to picking up an Xbox 360 4 years later. On the 360 I went by V1NDIBUDD which you can find on this site as well. So this Halo achievement kicked off a new era for me and so it will always hold great sentimental value.

Game: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
Achievement: My First Win
Description: Win Blackout
Note: This was the hardest achievement for me by far on Xbox One. I played something like 340 rounds before I finally won a Blackout round and this one happened on Quads. I doubt seriously that I will ever finish BO4 but at least I won a round of Blackout.

Game: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
Achievement: Not A Fluke
Description: Win 10 Blackout games
Note:This is the same as above except that this happened with the new mode of War. So it was inversely easy to get it. I think these two achievements bookend each other well.

Game: Star Wars Battlefront
Achievement: Never tell me the odds!
Description: Successfully perform Cooling Flush 10 times (Multiplayer)
My hundredth achievement! As an aside, my brother JediLionGuard is a savant at this game.


Game: Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons
Achievement: Whale Song
Description: You practised singing.
This achievement marked the first completed Xbox game and I found the game because of this site pointing it out!

halohogg What was going on between your achievements in 2008 and 2017 - big gap between your two gamertags?

Vindibudd That's an excellent question! Thank you for asking! My 360 Elite red-ringed on New Years Day 2009. I didn't have enough cash to go out and buy another one, they were $399 at the time. However, I did have a PS3 that I'd been using primarily for Blu-ray and PS exclusives. So that very day, I took all my multiplats and went to Gamestop and traded them in for PS3 versions and was back to playing Battlefield Bad Company that evening. I later cracked open the Elite case in a futile attempt to fix it literally 7 days before Microsoft announced they were fixing all red-rings regardless of warranty as long as they had not been tampered with. I was so pissed off about the red-ring fiasco that I refused to buy another xbox until I saw the One S had a 4K disk player and was on sale for $269 with an extra controller and 3 games. Now I'm back in the saddle. To kind of give you a snapshot of this, I've included some Bad Company achievement/trophies to illustrate the switch over.
