Jack’s Achievement Challenge: November 2011 Update – The End

Ramblings Xbox 360 Pop Culture News Microsoft Action Achievements

That’s it. 1 whole year. 12 months, 12 games, and I’ve done what I set out to do. I’ve managed to do one game’s achievements to 100% completion for the last 12 months. I’ve played some games that I haven’t enjoyed for a little longer than I should, but I’ve also found some fun games which I leave with a special attachment to in helping me in this task.


This final month doesn’t exactly go out with a bang like it would in an ideal world, but the important thing is it’s done: Achievement Unlocked. There were plenty of games released this month in preparation for the frenzy of Christmas sales, so it wasn’t that I didn’t have enough games to play, just that their achievements were a little out of reach given my time was divided between the lot of them. This month was simply putting into action the escape plan I’d had all along in case of an emergency. This month I got all the achievements for Xbox Live Arcade game Dash of Destruction.

So let’s take one final look at the the standings for this year-long task:

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

May 2011
Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime 200/200

June 2011

July 2011

August 2011
Googly Eyes 50/50

September 2011
Truth or Lies 1000/1000

October 2011
Kinect Me 50/50

November 2011
Dash of Destruction 200/200

With that, I’ll just say thanks to those of you who commented, and to those of you who followed it silently maybe now’s the time to comment to give your opinion on the challenge now it’s all over.

I guess I didn’t get the support I’d hoped for and you could argue it tailed off a bit at the end there where I started running out of games/lost my drive to do it, but looking at the overview of it I’m proud of what I managed. Plus now it’s over it feels like a weight has been lifted for my shoulders, as I won’t have to rush to complete something in the days before the month is out.

I've been playing videogames since I was about 8 years old. The first ever console and game I got was a red Gameboy Pocket with Pokemon Red.
