First blog! Oh, and ACHIEVEMENTS!!!

Well, hello Giant Bomb world! This is my first blog post however i've been a member of the site since its conception. I've loved every single thing about the website, even Jeff and Ryan's microcasts on AudioBoo. Basically, with the new achievements feature, I thought i'd use the blog to set (and hopefully complete) video game based challenges using the new achievements feature. I'm going to be honest - I will be starting small, however hopefully that will grow in size. At the minute, most of my aims will probably be rank-based, however expect that soon to move on to "gain all achievements" or "gain super-hard achievement", something like that. Of course, with the grade boundaries constantly changing, I might move back to the rank-based ones at some point. Now, with no further a do, let's move on to my first aim.

  • Get (and maintain) every game to at least a C rank.
At the minute, my D rank games include: Blue Dragon, EndWar, Skate, GTA IV PC, Need for Speed: Carbon, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Banjo-Kazooie and Joust. I plan on this for being a fairly long-term goal as i'm not a particually great fan of any of these games. I will admit, I love GTA IV, but i've already played it quite a lot on the Xbox 360 (however haven't completed it). Hopefully, i'll pull my finger out and get NFS: Most Wanted done by my next update, and possibly Joust.

NFS: Most wanted is great in my opinion. Not too hard to beat either. You should be able to get that one easy. I might join you in this "Get (and maintain) every game to at least a C rank." challenge. Sounds fun.

Aiming for at least all C-Ranks is actually a good goal idea, man. I might have to jump on board with that goal too.
