And that’s been…yet another week. If one isn’t paying close attention, these things really blur by. Seven days, one after the other, rapid fire. For instance, I didn’t even remember that I played a ton of Bulletstorm last Sunday, completing the game fully, until I began to put this list together. My mind has been most things Fez-related, with a pinch of Trials Evolution to boot last night, with little room to spare as the wife and I creep closer to MoCCA Festival next week.
All right, here are Achievements I unlocked that I liked the most from the week that was.
Mightier than the sword (10G): A cube for writing.
I couldn’t tell you how I got this. Not because it’s really spoilery, but because after going through so many levels within levels within levels and finding numerous secrets and cube bits and getting lost in the music and cryptic hieroglyphics…I just don’t remember. But there’s a strange artifact in my inventory, and so I must have gotten it at some point. Yeah.
Armed and dangerous (15G): Grow as a person, experience betrayal. Again.
Amusing Achievement art.
Space Pirate (10G): Drink at least 20 bottles of Nom Juice in the Single Player Campaign
I used to get drunk a lot. It was a coping thing, a way to pass the time, a way to fall asleep. I don’t really drink anymore, and if I do, I nurse the heck out of the drink until it is lukewarm and feeling uncomfortable. But getting drunk in videogames can be fun, and in Bulletstorm, it also earns you extra points to your skillshots. Gulp another bottle down and unleash that leash.
Violent Melody (30G): Complete the Campaign on Normal Difficulty
From Trails Evolution…
No Problemo (10G): Pass the D License Test and get your first bike.
Beyond the Wall of Pain (10G): Smash your bike and break every bone in one spectacular crash.
I missed a ramp and fell on a…landmine. Ka-blooie!
Community Spirit (20G): Post a time on another player’s custom created track.
I’m almost positive I’ll be playing more Fez and Trials Evolution this weekend–and almost no more Bulletstorm–so that’s where you can expect Achievements to pop for next week. Only, uh, there won’t be an Achievements of the Week next Friday because I’ll be heading into New York City for the MoCCA weekend. So we’ll play major catch-up in fourteen days.
Until then, tell me about your favorite Achievement from the last week of gaming. Do it.
