If yes, what type?

#2 Posted by theMockingNoob (173 posts) -

Yes, I do it way too often, mostly rock, kings of leon and the sort. In fact, every time I hear the song revelry, it reminds me of my trophy grinds for Resistance 2, the online ones.

It really depends on the game for me and if I've already beat it. Like for Fallout 3 the first time through I only listened to the game but everytime after I'd blast some Taylor Swift. But seriously for the music I listen to, as long as it sounds good I'll listen to it. Whether it be All That Remains or Lady Gaga.

Grind achievments??? ive just never managed to understand why i'd want too... is xbox live trying to turn into a wow grind fest of summat??.. I think i'll just stick with having fun and deciding what and when I play it.. instead of mr Microsoft telling what and when!

Yes. iPod on shuffle, on a playlist containing (mostly) rock in many forms from the 60s to 00s.

I listened to a bunch of songs that came with my first xbox 360, which I still have on my fourth for some reason, whilst playing through Oblivion for over 250 hours. I immediately think of Oblivion whenever I hear any of them, pretty nice nostalgia. I normallly listen to podcasts or Giant Bomb videos when I grind points, keeps me conscious and i can't really just do one thing at a time. 
 
Anyone else get a song list called "Custom Xbox  360 Mix 1" with an Xbox 360.

The bombcast is perfect for achievement grinding.

One of these two. Depends if I've got a new Bombcast or not.

i was trying my hand at beating sfIV on the hardest difficulty while listening to Does it offend you yeah? just the other day

#13 Posted by Clinkz (1118 posts) -

Yeah, but I rarely grind achievements anymore. It mainly used to be metal to techno.

The Bombcast was the only reason I was able to grind for Dead Rising's ~56k kill achievement. I think I went through three of them.
 
Other than that, yeah, I have a playlist of mostly classic rock that gets me through periods of grind.

Nope, no grinding for me thanks.

Listening to "The Geekbox" as I grab feathers in AC2 right now. Was listening to music before. Will listen to a fresh "The Bombcast" when it's released. May be done with AC2 in a few minutes here, though...

Bombcast or in a party with people.

#18 Posted by natetodamax (19219 posts) -

No but thats a good idea

#19 Posted by Th3_James (2579 posts) -

I don't grind achievements, but I usually listen to my favorite playlist. I picked my favorite songs from my music collection. The playlist is 730something songs, no filler. My playlist is called "MFREGERSD" it doesn't stand for anything, I just hit some keys. I also never get bored of that playlist, it has classical, metal, rap, rock, and a few pop songs.

I do... i often play through a game while listening to the game to get the story but if i play it twice then i have music on. same goes for multi-player enless i am playing with friends. i just put my Ipod on shuffle.

I go through about 4 to 10 podcasts each week grinding achievements. So much so that music has gotten boring. Also I think I have a problem :)

#24 Posted by LtKetch (49 posts) -

I usually listen to podcasts...get a little GiantBomb in my game time.
#25 Posted by Meteora (5787 posts) -

Yeah. Primarily rock music to keep me going, whatever is playing on my iTunes.
 
Don't do it very offen, though. Only time I ever did it was when I was grinding for some flags in AC1. That needed some serious motivation. =/

Grinding in RPGs requires music. Not for achievements
