September Achievement Clean-up
Early this year TrueAchievements ran The Ultimate Head to Head Contest where "Each week, competitors are drawn against a random opponent and a shared target list of 20 achievements is generated. The winner is the person that earns the most off their list before the end of the period, and the loser is eliminated." - Even though I didn't last that long, I had a lot of fun being forced to play games that I had previously abandoned or wasn't actively looking at going back to play. I was pleasantly surprised by a few of the games that I played again having either forgot how good they were, or hadn't reached the point where the game went from average to amazing.
This month, rather than having a theme, I'm taking the first 100 achievements from my "Easy Achievements" list on TrueAchievements (basically achievements with really low TA Ratio) and grouped them by game. My goal is to cross as many of them off as possible, but by doing that my TA Ratio is going to take a hefty hit seeing that I'm about to inject 100 low ratio achievements to the pool, so any additional higher ratio achievements will be welcomed along the way.
As of September 1st my TrueAchievements Stats were:
TA Ratio: 1.4736 TA Score: 167,132 Gamerscore: 113,421 Completion: 61.80% Achievements: 4,626
The following is a list of the achievements grouped by game that I'm targeting. There are 100 achievements worth 3,380 TA Score (or 2,930 Gamerscore).
There a few games in here like the LEGO Lord of the Rings game that I'm actually looking forward to playing. Others like Bioshock 2 and LA Noire have been on my short list for a while now, so it will be good to actually play them again.
