...I dont know about you, but I love to follow up my achievement stats in this lovely website ... Just wanna see dem' A and S ranks ... What about you, do you care??
Nope, heck I'm surprised that the "S-rank" thingy even popped up on Giantbomb when I visited this site but I didn't hop in to see what games I actually have them in.
Though it's probably the games where you just get Achievements for doing the obvious like "OMG! You moved with the left stick!" and then "OMG You looked around with the Right Stick"
I never really paid attention to them on the site. I'm happy by unlocking them. Knowing how rare they are doesn't really add anything for me but occasionally I do check and see. It's a shame modders have to exist though... damn you cheaters, devaluing my few properly rare achievements. :P
" Yep, when it's a slow day, I often like to compare my achievements to the rest of Giant Bomb as well as drool over my A and S ranks. I also like to know how many of my achievements are still rare. "Your right,..... I think they should restructure the xbox achievement system, make it look more like GiantBomb, ..... compare against everybody, that would be cool!!
" Primarily check when I know I've got an S-Rank coming in. Was a particularly proud day when this one came through...I feel the same way about my 1 vs 100 S-rank. HIGH FIVE FOR EXTINCT S-RANKS!!!
Also, yes, I check my stuff pretty regularly. About to break 70K. Super psyched about it. It's been a long road, ya know.
How long does it generally take for the achievements on here to update and sync with XBL? My achievement page hasn't changed since I first added my gamertag but I've unlocked quite a few since then.They should pop up pretty soon after, for instance I unlocked an achievement in Red Faction last night and it was updated on the same night pretty soon after I unlocked it.
I'm assuming yours is glitched like many other people or you have changed your XBL settings so that your profile is private rather than the required public setting for the cheevos to pop up here
I could not care less about bullshit fucking "achievements". The only kind of thing I would like to have tracked is a list of games you've beat and maybe the percentage of the way you've made it through games that are not yet completed. Whether I killed 53,948 of a type of monster or collected a bunch of bullshit "pad the game with nonsense so we can claim it has more game play" flags is irrelevant.
I think the achievement tracking for 360 games is better on TrueAchievements, but I like the way Giant Bomb gives you a grade relative to other players. I like to at least get a B in any game I like . I use that as my metric for experiencing the game to a decent degree.
