Okay, so I know the game has been out since September ’08. I just decided to purchase this game (used) for $11.03 (Thanks to GameFly). So as any other game, I looked up the achievements and wow, how ridiculous some of them are. Here are 4 of the ridiculous achievements I have already seen.
I will do them, sadly, as they take only seconds to do each day but still, why? These developers or whoever is in control of these achievements need to be fired and never work in the gaming industry again. You are really not achieving anything here..
Remember September ’44
50 GS – While connected to Xbox LIVE, play the game on September 17th.
Play it on September 17th. Just boot the game up and make sure you are connected to live.
100 GS – While connected to Xbox LIVE, play the game for once a day for 100 days
50 GS – While connected to Xbox LIVE, play the game once a week for three months
Switching time zones does not work for this one so looks like you get to keep for a little while if you want this one.
25 GS – While connected to Xbox LIVE, play the game once a day for 7 days
Use the link under the Kilroy was here achievement then scroll to the bottom of the page you should see a guide for this were you change time zones.
I know there are many, many more games that have done such achievements that are ridiculous. I will take you back to one or even one you may not know of, NBA LIVE 07. The achievement is worth 100 Gamerscore with the name of Online with 1,000 people. What do you have to do? Well if you can not guess from the title, here is the description: Be online when there are 1,000 people online at the same time.
Yes, I do have this achievement thanks to the folks over at Xbox360Achievements that organized an event to have such many people online on a certain date which was 2/25/2007. Almost 2 years ago now. Achievement’s like this are ridiculous and need to be stopped, will they though? I highly doubt it.
