Weed, soup, faux air hockey, and Zombine attacks. That about sums up my week on the Xbox 360, but for further clarification, let’s take a look at some Achievements that popped. I’m getting close to 30,000 Gamerscore, which is exciting to nobody but me, and that means I will have to try really hard to get it to land on 30,000 exactly for blogging purposes. You may all start waiting in anticipation starting…now!
Okay, let’s do this.
From L.A. Noire…
So, back duringthose tempting Black Friday sales, I purchased some Microsoft Points and downloaded the remaining two DLC cases I’ve yet to play so far for L.A. Noire. Namely, they are Reefer Madness and A Slip of the Tongue. As always, they were enjoyable and strongly plotted, but far too short again. I finished both in one sitting. I guess, ultimately, this is the type of game I just want more, more, and more of. Sigh…
Femme Imbécile (20G): Correctly branch every question in the interview with Jean Archer.
On my first try, too, without even knowing this Achievement existed! Love that.
Forcible Rear Entry (20G): Enter the Las Palmas stash house via the back door and kill Juan Garcia Cruz.
Soup in the Pot (20G): Open both soup cans in Juan Garcia Cruz’s stash room.
My OCD to check everything lead to this popping. Mental sickness for the win!
From Beyond Good & Evil HD…
Gamble King 2 (15G): Win 3 times in the pellet game against Francis
I think I built this minigame in my mind to be tougher than it actually was. Haven’t played it in so long, and I do remember a lot of grumbling at one point. From me, that is. Francis was loving winning all of Jade’s money back then. But beating Francis three times in 2011 did not take long, just persistence and a keen awareness of where all the pellets are at any given time. Will need to play again later though to win his pearl, but that’s for later.
From Half-Life 2: Episode One…
After Half-Life 2 glitched out on me and ruined all my progress, I said “frak it” to no one in particular and moved on to the next game in the series, which is more of a bite-size experience, but still fun since the gravity gun mechanics remain pivotal to surviving.
Citizen Escort (15G): Don’t let any citizens die when escorting them to the escape train.
Only had to reload a few times due to this one silly citizen constantly getting stuck on a ladder and getting a chest full of bullets for it. Silly citizens.
Escape from City 17 (20G): Escape City 17 with Alyx.
On to Half-Life 2: Episode Two…soonish! I swears it.
How did y’all do this week? If you don’t tell me in the comments section below, I’ll never know.
