Anybody else having this problem. I've got 19 that show up on Steam but the game doesn't even show up on my list here on GB.

I've had this problem with Steam achievements. I guess ask the tech guys?

When did you get those achievements? It generally takes less then three days for GB to update with your Steam account.

Yeah, I have 52 achievements for the game and I got my first few on the day that the game was released. It still doesn't show up in my account. Never had problems with syncing before.

All of mine are between July 29 and July 31. And I've never had problems with other ones showing up. Weird.

The xml format for Alien Swarm is different from the other achievement games, so sites such as GB doesn't know how to read them.

Glad it isn't just me.

Yea my Steam achievements don't show up either, I have more than 2. Also the xbox 360 achievements take forever to update.

Thank you for posting this, I knew the problem was most likely on the Steam end and not Giant Bomb's end but I'd been curious to know what exactly the problem was.

I know Raptr wasn't tracking the game's achievements for quite a while, but they finally got it started to recognize them sometime in the last week or 2. I'm not sure how much work it would be, but it would seem it's doable to get the site to recognize them.

SteamStats still have the same problem as GB. I don't think Valve should expect every tracker side to change their code just because they wanted to try something new with one game.

Yeah I have this problem, too. I hope it gets sorted at some point 'cause I like me some Alien Swarm.

It only shows my Half-life 2 achievements from steam, not Alien Swarm though.

Bump - achievements for this game are still not showing up on the site.

I don't know how GB parses the xml code that you can get from the game steam stats (normally you do:  http://steamcommunity.com/id/USERNAME/stats/GAME/achievements?xml=1), but you have to do a workaround for Alien Swarm ( http://steamcommunity.com/id/USERNAME/stats/AlienSwarm/achievements?tab=achievements&xml=all ) . 
 
 
If someone tells whomever in GB makes the achievements script work (if he/she doesn't know this already), the problem might be sorted.

 SteamStats has just started showing AS achievement. Come on GB!

Why isn't this fixed yet?

Alien Swarm doesn't even show up in my feed.

@Forcen: I guess they decided not to bother since this game stopped being relevant a month after it released, unfortunately.
