I created this discussion just to get the achievement. You wish you thought of it first, suckers!
It's addictive like Xbox!
Pfft, I got that achievement before it was mainstream.
There should be a support group for people addicted to collecting pixilized self worth. I would join.
Josh, that is without a doubt a seriously underhanded way to earn a badge. You should be ashamed. And I totally wish I'd thought of it first.
I'm not addicted to collecting pixelized self-worth. I can stop whenever I want, but it's just really fun. Really. I don't need them. I just want them.
Whatever... I don't have to prove anything to anyone.
I remember reading an article somewhere that Microsoft's idea for it was completely "pixelated self worth", was to make people feel rewarded and it keeps them coming back. People playing would replay the game hundreds of times just to gain that missed achievement.
The same concept is used for Facebook for the friendless masses to make friends in order to achieve badges from applications. It's kind of like if you put a rat in a cage and somehow a repeated action allowed it an orgasm, it would orgasm until it fainted or died.
Fortunately the orgasms of this community are for productivity, otherwise we'd have a really big mess and many members dropping dead.
Personlly, I find all virtual achivements to have no real worth. Or to put it another way, I just don't care for them. I think there should be an option to turn off achievements for Xbox. Anyone agree? You get points for playing the game. Yes I bought the game to play it. Now stop telling me I've won points. Go away. It's like watching a movie and getting points after a scene. I should tell Microsoft.
I personally love Xbox achievements. I feel they add another level of replayability to games.
I agree with Josh. And more than the replayability, they sometimes make me try playing the game in a way I normally wouldn't. If I see one that says "Complete level 2 with any bad guys spotting you" you can damn well bet I'm going to give that a try. Especially because my normal appraoch is to just shoot everyone in the face. Gannies included!
Damn it Josh, there you go again with your geniusing. There should be a badge for that. Geniusing.
I think the Achievement Badges are great. Not only are they cool looking, but they keep us moving forward. LitCarrots. Like you said Kirk, they urge us to try new things or ask "I wonder what that is all about?"
The "Your so Vain" medallion is my current favorite. I was surprised to find that LitBot knew how conceited. I was. She is a mindreader, that Bot. Hot Botty Bot.
I wish I had palpable versions of the cybermedals so I could walk around with them swinging from my neck, a LitPimp with a horde of LitBots reciting The Marquis de Sade.
I thought of this as well. Instead, I hit next and here I am.
i was gonna delete this, but i cant. so... umm.... how bout that NBA season that's not happening?
To get the Cool Hundo badge do you have to have 100 workshop points saved up or is it just points you accumulate over time while you use them and what not?
I don't get it. That Meachman dude should have one by now.
