Don't forget September 17th!

Hey guys, those of you who missed out on the achievement for playing this on September 17th when the game launched late, and forgot the subsequent year, don't forget Sep 17th is coming up soon.

Otherwise you'll be doomed to 950gs for another year.

If you miss it, you may be able to set your time zone back to it's still the 17th. Not entirely sure about that though.

Yeah, been waiting for this since... 17/09/09

Not going to complete my 1000G as I still have other achievements to do, but it means that I don't have to wait ANOTHER year to get it !

I'm surprised that there hasn't been a site update on the homepage as a reminder, but there is still time...

don't think it will work adjusting the time zone on your xbox. if you should adjust time zone anywhere, it would have to be on xbox live. why do you think you have to be connected to xbox live to get this achievement?

Off topic but has anybody had any issues unlocking the Victory or Death achievement? This is unlocked by killing somebody with the Truly Inspired achievement. 3 of us were in a game last night and all of us have Truly Inspired but when we tried to kill each other the achievement didn't unlock.

Is there anything specific to the achievement not noted in the guide or does it not always unlock straightaway?

Me. I got this game almost a year ago, finally fired it up in October a couple weeks too late. Had forgotten about the Sept. 17th thing. Don't even know if I'll have the game for it next year. shrug

Just a reminder to everyone who has this game but hasn't got this achievement yet. I bought it last October at GameStop for dirt-cheap and didn't even know about this achievement. I can't wait to get this achievement for my full 1000....and then the next day I'll be playing Borderlands 2!
