Blog #1 - Not an Achievement Whore Edition

Posted by AlisterCat (5580 posts) -

Hey all (if anyone will ever read this). I am a massive fan of giant bomb. I love Vinny, Jeff, Ryan and Brad as well as all the fantastic work they do. The a look of the site, the attitude, the forum and what the site is trying to accomplish. Been coming here for a while now and decided to sign up. A huge mistake. I am a sucker for RPG mechanics and if you add a levelling system to anything I will be there. Damn you Dave, or whoever this idea belongs to!
 
So now that I am here I might as well say something. I don't find myself susceptible to videogame journalism, but Giant Bomb has made me try out games that I wouldn't have found on my own. They've got me in to the Phoenix Wright series from their quicklook, the endurance run got me to invest 125 hours so far in Persona 4. If Deadly Premonition comes to Europe you'll bet I'll get this game to see how awful it is. The not so serious attitude of the coverage on this site makes my perception of these games more relaxed. When you are giving out super specific game scores and not cracking any jokes it can seem like serious business in an industry of entertainment.
 
Also, I should note that I am no longer an achievement whore. Upon adding my Gamertag I unlocked all the of the S-Rank quests in one go, and have around 180 rare achievements. I used to be an addict, but I didn't think I was that bad... it's shocking.  My proudest would have to be the Tony Hawk achievements, as I S-Ranked Project 8. Of course I am past all that now. No more whoring around for me.
 
If you read this thanks for checking it out, might write another one sometime soon.
