Jack’s Achievement Challenge: October 2011 Update


11 months on and still going strong. Well, maybe strong isn’t the word for it, as I seem to be running low on games with do-able achievements lists and the 11 months have taken their toll, leaving me feeling a little fatigued.

But I managed it – another game succumbs to the might of my gaming ability. The order of the month this time was ‘Kinect Me’, another downloadable outing exclusively for the Kinect sensor. In all honesty it was more testing of my modelling qualities than my gaming prowess, but was good fun all the same. The game scans you as you are and makes an avatar to match, down to the very clothes on your back.

Here are the standings with this latest fully complete game’s achievements taken into account:

December 2010
Harm’s Way 200/200

January 2011
Faery: Legends of Avalon 200/200

February 2011
Spare Parts 200/200

March 2011
Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 1000/1000

April 2011
Doritos Crash Course 200/200

May 2011
Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime 200/200

June 2011
TRON: Evolution 1000/1000

July 2011
Lazy Raiders 200/200

August 2011
Googly Eyes 50/50

September 2011
Truth or Lies 1000/1000

October 2011
Kinect Me 50/50

As always, I’d love to hear your input on the standings so far in the comments, be it suggestions of other games to tackle or your own achievements with regard to achievements.

    LOL, okay I know i picked on you last month for “Truth or Lies”, but Kinect Me?
    You really are scraping the bottom of the barrel now.

    Hmm, there are some websites that have lists of games with really easy achievements. And some that list games by how hard maxing out the achievements are. I’d say look some up and make a list of games that are easy, then try to go out and find cheap used copies of the games.

    I know Disney Sing it games are easy to max out. It just takes some time and you have to sing some fairly irritating songs. I’ve just about maxed out the first Disney Sing it, all I have to do now is go through and sing all the songs again in duet mode (which you can do alone with one mic), I just can’t remember what songs I’ve already sang in that mode, and singing..I think around 40, songs again is a little daunting. Plus I don’t care that much.

    Basically I think to get all the achievements in the game you just have to sing each song twice (once in regular mode, and once in duet mode) and then one more song with the lyrics and bars to indicate how well you are doing hidden. (so you have to know the song well enough to sing it with no lyrics).
    So yeah it would take some time, but that’s about all it takes it fill it out. And I think the game is pretty cheap now.

    You just need one more game and you’ll have made it a whole year. You can do it!!
