Angry Can Anyone Resolve This?

Ok... I am nearly at the point of suicide over this so please here me out...

If anyone can shed any light on what the hell is wrong with this then you are a god! I have literally posted this everywhere... Xbox forums, gaming forums.. Even on the game itself on this forum.. I even phoned Xbox Live Support (We all know how helpful they are) and they had no idea...

My problem is this..

I downloaded "Shinobi" on Xbox Live and was looking forward to another nice easy 200Gs...

However... There is one Devil's Spawn of an Achievement that simply WILL NOT UNLOCK no matter what i try...

The Achievement is...

Often Say Die - 25G
(Play Through 20 Player Deaths With Difficulty Set To Hardest)

ok.. That is pretty much incredibly simple and not possible to get wrong.. Its not exactly misleading..

I have done this at least 50 times and it still will not unlock...

A) Yes i am sure that the difficulty is on "Hardest"

B) Yes i have tried deleting the game from my hard drive and reinstalling

C) Yes i have recovered my gamer tag and then attempted the Achievement

D) Yes i have asked other Live Users who have the Achievement and they just say do what it tells you and they got it without problem

SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!

Does anyone have this problem or something similar on another game abd knows how to resolve it??

P.S. Xbox Live Support didnt even know what Shinobi was!!!! Great staff they have there...

It's the principle of it... Not the fact that its shinobi... I earned those 25g and its like a slap in the face.. Specially as i have 200G every vintage sega game except that one..

Whoa. Suicide over GS. Nice.

Be patient, the game came out just 20 days ago. My suggestion is, especially if you know you're doing it right, just play something else for a few weeks, and check to see. If it's a glitch, then you won't be the only one complaining. You already posted in the Shinobi forums...just keep checking back at it, but don't stress yourself on it...you'll eventually get it.

Lol i wasnt actually serious about suicide.. I was mearly stressing my emotions at the matter...

Even though what your saying may be true, what worries me is that other ppl have the achievement.. If there was a glitch surely it would effect everyone like the fallout DLC

Wait a few days for the achievement to pop up, same thing happened to me with three Halo 3 achievements the didn't pop up on the day I met the necessary requirements but like a week later when I loaded up Halo 3 the three achievements pop up. So all that's needed is patience

Not necessarily. If a game is a bit glitchy, you won't always come across a glitch. Often, the conditions have to be just right to make it happen. Maybe the game is just a little glitchy, and you got lucky and found the glitch!

Well I was playing through Halo3 on Legendary and it never gave me the achievement for completing the 3rd chapter, so I had to go back and do it again later.
(I didn't redo it straight away but a few weeks later, couldn't be bothered!)

You may have done this and just forgot to list the step but did you clear the cache of your Xbox 360? I've found that doing so helps much more than people think it may.

To do so:
Go to the system blade and then select memory.
Press Y on the HD symbol and then press X,X,Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X. Once you do this a messsage will appear saying: Do you want to perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices?

See if that works. Like I said, it's helped fix a lot of glitchy things that I've encountered with the console.

I dunno if it's glitched or not, I managed to get it, I just didn't fuck with any of the options out side of how many lives I had, set it to max, died, and I can't remembetr if I continued or quit, I think it gives a continue option. Lather, rinse, repeat. Good luck getting it, hope it works for you.

Have you tried deleting your game data, but not the actual game(i.e. all your save files)? I had to do this for a couple of Scene-It achievements. I deleted all saved data that had my gamertag on it. I had to start over, which sucked fat floppy donkey dick, but they at least popped.

Prince of Persia's Hunter glitch made me sad. It was such a huge gamebreaker, luckily it only scrapped about 5 hours of gameplay, could have been a load more!

TBH your best bet would be to take care of the thread you already put up in the game forums, chances are you're not the only person with the glitch. Or if you are, others will soon be working on a fix.

I'm curious about this because I unlocked that achievement but when I took the game over to my buddies house it wouldn't unlock for him.

Well, this isn't glitched, but I've had incredible trouble unlocking the Perfect Bonus achievement in Galaga. I literally played Galaga for about 6 hours trying for that achievement, and one of the little bastards escaped on 13 different occasions. I have yet to unlock it because I thought it wasn't worth it. I know where you've been with those kind of achievements bro

As for the Shinobi achievement itself, I have no idea. Good luck.

Seems to be fixed as of today (July 3rd.)

It wouldn't unlock for me either, but I deleted the game and redownloaded it tonight. Worked first time.

Set to Hardest difficulty with Fast bullets.

I finally got it yesterday after like six months of getting REALLY REALLY PISSED. There's a youtube video somewhere that might help a lot. Try doing the screen one half at a time and leave two trapped as long as possible, that way if you die the bastards will be trapped again for a bit

It's just crazy how some people can do things easily that others can't. I can get that achievement in Galaga on 2-3 challenging with one spaceship. I can get it on all challenging stages with 2 spaceships. Of course, I love this game and have been playing it since I was a kid and had to go to the local arcade to do so.

I checked your gamertag and saw your achievements on Guitar Hero and I am jealous. I would gladly trade my ability on Galaga with your ability on GH. So once again, what's easy for you...not so much for me.
