Exactly one month ago I started The 75th Annual EpicSteve Achievement Contest. About 50 member from the GiantBomb community participated in a contest to see who can accumulate the highest amount of achievement points between January 8th and February 8th. It seems that the interest in gathering achievements has lightened. I even find myself not going too far out of my way for achievements anymore. I feel like this is due to the lack of real-world rewards and people on your friend's list not caring about your score. If I have more points in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood than JJWeatherMan, I don't think he would care too much.
This is why i started this contest. A good chuck of members from this community got games out of their pile of shame and went achievement hunting in hopes to win 1600 microsoft points. I specifically chose January to run this due to the lack of new releases, and it's after the holiday season. A perfect time to reach in your pile of shame, but there's enough legit releases (Dead Space 2, Raskulls, and so on) to give boosts to people's scores.
Annnnnnd the winner is (drum roll)....................cide! He gathered 9,020 points in the last four weeks! Cide now has a total of 102,100 achievement points. During this contest, I managed to get a picture of his profile having exactly 100,000 points. i recommended he leave that profile behind forever. He obviously wasn't keen on that proposal. His winnings consist of 1600 microsoft points.
2nd place goes to linkin10362, accumulating 8,960 now having a total of 159,280. Congratulations, duder.
It was a close race between linkin10362 and cide with a difference in only 60 points!
I will offer a second place prize of Dead Space 2 DragonAge II armor. If linkin10362 already owns Dead Space 2 or doesn't intend to buy DragonAge II, the code will go down the chain. We'll figure that out.
Here's the top 5:
1st: cide (9,020)
2nd: linkin10362 (8,960)
3rd: Shard (8,355)
4th: Petturi (6,985)
5th: Immortal saiyan (5,200)
Come back next week for "The Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Tournament: Lets Fight hosted by EpicSteve".
