In a recent thread on the official 2k Civilization 5 forum, people were writing about how many of the 176 Civ 5 achievements they have. The official 2k community manager, 2k Greg, chimed in to say that Giantbomb is his favorite way to keep track of achievements. Pretty cool.

How did the PS3 integration work out for the subscribers?

It's a good idea, but aside from the grade provided, it falls way short. The update rate is unacceptably slow. It takes days for 360 achievements to populate. And the sorting of your own is terrible. Not showing the ones you have integrated with the full list is unacceptable. It's why I also use TrueAchievemnts. That populates very fast, has much better sorting, and doesn't take forever to load.

It'd be cool if I could have those five achievements I earned in Skyrim, Giant Bomb. It'd also be cool if I could look at an achievement page and not have to worry about which platform I got the achievements on because sometimes some games get more comments on particular lists like Skyrim. I mean, it would be cool, ya know.

But, hey, nice shout out.

For the first few weeks it was buggy but now it seems to be working great.

If you haven't already, try removing your PSN account and adding it again.

I (2K Greg) gave a shout-out because you guys deserve it!

Seriously I love the achievement system here. I don't post on the forums here (although I lurk a bit) but I come multiple times a week to look at the latest achievement stats. I love checking them for a brand new game each day to see as the rarity on some achievements change.
