Aww that's a shame :/ I might end up getting the Xbox One version first in that case; I guess I will just have to see what happens with my living situation now.
That doesn't make too much sense to me either! I think they probably messed something up. XD I hope Contrast or another interesting game with go free as well, but if not, I hope I'll enjoy whatever is offered! I might end up getting Contrast on the Xbox 360 soon once I complete more of that backlog. :P
I was never a HUGE completionist. I did complete a lot of games in the past couple years, but I would never skip a game because of its achievements.
I stopped caring when I realized that like 12 games were coming out in 8 weeks in Q4, with a backlog of 10+ games on the Xbox One already. I get more free games than I can enjoy playing, and caring about my completion percentage would just make that list grow longer. I just don't get the point of it for myself anymore. As an example, the only reason I probably enjoyed Shadow of Mordor was because I could just run through the story, get a few achievements, and sell it before the week was over. I couldn't imagine running around and doing all the outcast missions before starting Alien: Isolation considering I can barely find time in my schedule to sleep.
And I'm down for Halo matches. I'll be available for them most of Dec/Jan.
It's okay, a delayed response is always better than no response! Glad to hear you had fun in Vegas and with Shadow of Mordor! Do you by any chance know when the 360 version comes out? I would really like to play it, but I would rather not wait to return home in order to do so. :P
I haven't played too many of the Xbox 360 games offered other than some of the arcade games that I bought in sales ages ago. They still have Crimson Dragon on the list? That has to be a mistake or some goof on their part; that doesn't even make sense to have that for three months! D: I can't wait to see what games will be offered for next month!
I gave up being a completionist a couple weeks ago, but I plan to complete the achievements that I WANT to complete that don't ask me to go too far out of the way of something fun.
I'll probably get 500MP wins, and a bunch of other stuff, but I assume somewhere down the line there'll be an achievement that I just won't care about completing, and then I'll move on to a different game.
I think the list is decent. Like I said, wish it was 150-200 achievements, and point values were increased on the "tier" achievements, but there's nothing you can do. Because there is so much content, it seems that H3 & H4 have some of the more boring lists, and mostly progression based. I'll have to sit down and take a closer look (just browsed earlier), and then decide, but it's not the worst list I've seen.
Probably will make one as there's not too much to cover in mid-late December. I guess it depends on a bunch of stuff though.
At the moment, not sure if I could come up with a list of 10, so hopefully these Q4 games do well. So many games didn't live up to the "hype" this year, so if I say that I loved them, I'm just opening up myself to criticism and I have enough people being negative towards me and my channel, haha.
