Summer of XBLA

I want this summer to be productive

Twisted Pixel's The Maw
I have waaaaay too many XBLA games I haven't started nonetheless completed so I've decided to dedicate my Summer to finishing these games.
I've already gotten 200/200 in Castle Crashers & Dash of Destruction. So now I've picked eight of my XBLA to S-Rank.
BC: Rearmed, Braid, DOOM, Mega Man 9, Pac-Man C.E., Space Invaders Extreme, The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai, & The Maw.
I'm going to start with The Maw which I'm already knee-deep in and loving it. I think after I finish that I'm going to move onto Braid. I'm really excited to delve into this because of how interesting the story sounds. I haven't planned out the rest of my venture so I'm just going to wing it. I'll keep this blog updated with little twitter-esque updates and my Wall-O-Achievements.


EDIT: After starting my official Wall-O-Achievements I've purchased & decided to S-Rank Schizoid so I'm just going to add its own counter  @ the bottom.

Schizoid: 85/200
Updates:

05/28/09: 415/1600

Starting my quest, I have some basic achievements.

05/01/09: 565/1600

Finished all of The Maw achievements.

05/02/09: 645/1600

Almost S-Rank'ed Space Invaders Extreme, two more to go.

05/03/09: 730/1600

Got another Space Invaders achievement & S-Rank'ed Pac-Man C.E.

Honorable Mention:

Alien Hominid, TMNT 1989 Arcade, SuperStreetFighter2THD, Streets of Rage 2, Marathon: Durandel, Duke Nukem 3D, Small Arms, Schizoid, Undertow, & Yaris.

My xbox is broken atm so I wont be playing anything for a while :\

I was pretty happy last time I had a stint of playing XBLA games, I got all the Doom achieves very quickly, I don't quite know the game inside out but i'd played it enough times previously to just blast through it. And I was one of the first couple hundred people to get all the achieves in SFII HD Remix.

That said theres a bunch I need to go back to like R-Type, Bionic Commando: Rearmed, Duke 3D and Braid and a bunch I need to play for the first time like The Maw and Castle Crashers.

how is the space invaders extreme achievements?

I want to get it since I love it on my DS but at the same time, if I won't get achievements from it (either because it's waaay too hard or there is stupid achievements in it) I don't see the point spending more money on a game I all ready got

I understand bro. The achievements are really easy, especially if you check online, I'll definitely have it S-Rank'd by the end of the week.
Achievements range from "Finish the Game" to "Play 25 Online Matches" to "Beat a boss without missing a shot" so nothing to strenuous.
Ignoring the achievements the game itself is super fun too, so for 800 points it's a great deal for any fan of Space Invaders.
