The toppest tennest most popular achievement sets for the past seven days lies just below this paragraph of text! Can you stand it? Can you possibly hold out any longer? OK, fine, I'll just spoil it, then. Halo 3: ODST is in the lead again. If we total out the last 30 days, though, Beatles is our most popular achievement page.

...Saw? Guess people are getting ready for next week's games by scoping out some early achievements. Speaking of which, we've got a batch of new stuff in the system. The highlight has to be Dragon Age: Origins.
- Nancy Drew: Ransom of the Seven Ships (Steam)
- Tornado Outbreak
- Military Madness: Nectaris
- Bust-A-Move Live!
- BCFX: The Doug Williams Edition
- Dynasty Warriors: Multi Raid Special
- Cross Edge Dash
- Divinity 2: Ego Draconis
- Dragon Age: Origins
It must be hard to figure out achievements that make sense when you're dealing with a big RPG. I thought Oblivion handled it really well by tying so many of its points to the game's well-defined side-quests. But... well, I think we all know that Dragon Age is going to be a game you'll want to play on a PC, if possible. Even the latent points bug that still creeps around in my head knows better than to demand that I play it on a 360.
The individual list is straight-up boringsville this week. All ODST, all day, all night, with two notable exceptions.

ODST makes up most of the 11-20 list, too. It's pretty wild. Oh, hey, here's one of our back-end charts that shows the number of Halo 3: ODST achievements fed into our system every day. I thought it was kind of interesting.
Yeah, we received around 24,150 ODST achievements on its launch day, but it's been dropping off quickly, probably because everyone's finishing the game and moving on to Firefight or, perhaps, the multiplayer disc. Halo 3 achievements went up 10X on launch day and haven't dropped off quite as much as ODST has. Still, with the way that graph looks, I have to imagine that ODST will start dropping down the charts over the next week or two to make way for the big Q4 releases. Speaking of which, we totally entered Q4 this week.
Do you think Modern Warfare 2 will spike that graph as severely? Considering it apparently doesn't have any achievements for its multiplayer mode (which is probably for the best), I don't know that it will.
Work on PlayStation 3 support continues on. Yesterday Andy showed me my PSN account, pulled into our system, and showing my actual trophy data. Since trophies don't have raw points numbers associated with them, we're going to have to make a few changes to the system to implement them, but it looks like it's coming along.
Also, this weekend is the Pacific Pinball Expo. So I am going to spend Saturday and Sunday in a dark-ass room full of pinball machines. I am very excited about this. Carry on!
