"I don't get achievements. I've never understood how it is interesting for 360 owners. The only way they become interesting to me is if they offer reward for getting achievements(The TF2 model)."
I'm pretty much the same in my view of achievements, unless there is a decent reward for them like Valve and its TF2 class updates i see no point in them. Sure L4D has fun achievements but i don't get anything for gaining them, so i sort of don't care too much for them.
I've always seen the achievements for the 360 as having a negative effect on the enjoyment of the games. It seems so many times i come across blogs or topics about "oh man i just finished getting all the points and achievements for this game, hated it, never playing it again"...."
Well then stop reading my blogs and you'll never see that kind of thing :P
Last week I finished playing through CoD: WaW on veteran first time through, I had to play a couple of levels back through to get the level specific achievements I missed going through. I've barely touched the MP because basicly I think it's crap I've never played a game that takes as little skill as WaW does, I mean I just played a group of 6 french guys most of witch were ranked in the top 100 in the world with about 13 days of playing time and I ended up going 68 and 17 when I only have like 3 weapons unlocked and some of their guys were 9th prestige, thats one thing that annoys me about CoD games these days is the fact you require no skill at all to rank up unlike Halo where you actually have to be good at the game to get the top rank and of course I get an angry message from one of the guys after the game that said "fuk your connection englis and fuk yur keyboard" I understand the connection bit I mean everyone needs an excuse for being crap but I couldn't stop laughing when he tells me to "fuk yur keyboard" it's obviously a mis translation but it's pretty hilarious.
Anyway enough of that crap time to talk about a real game! Rock Band 2 is probablly my favourite rythm game of all time mainly due to the fact that I have over 300 songs to play and also the fact that the I hate the Guitar Hero engine (it's just way to loose and you end up missing notes because you hit notes that you should have missed Won't make much sense to anyone), I played through the Endless Setlist 2 earlier today and apart from having to sprint to the toilet inbetween 2 songs it was easy, I ended up getting the Bladder of Steel achievement which is for not pausing or failing once in a 84 song setlist. I got about 400 stars out of however many is possible I think it's about 430ish I reckon I could've done a lot better if I didn't save my overdrive for the enirety of the last 5 songs seeing as I didn't want to fail and have to play through a 6 hour setlist again.
I wrote my first guide the other week please check it out and give me feedback even if your not going to use it and thanks to Hamish for reading through the mess that was the collectables section and pointing out most of my spelling errors.
