This is going to be so intense...no matter what the difficulty of the achievements are...just the quantity of them, it's going to be a pretty good feeling when it says achievements 99 of 99(if it happens!)

I think these achievements have the best names so far.

I also have to say that most of these achievements are very original, which is why I'm gonna enjoy getting these!

It kinda makes sense, it's more than a game, so I think the 50 Achievements per game rule was followed, me thinks...

Anyway, would it be possible, if anyone know, to point out which are online and which aren't ?
Thanks.

In every game it says which achievements you can get and how many % you got of them!

Hmm.. Maybe I shouldn't have cancelled my pre-order. I wasn't really into Half Life 2 that much after playing it a billion times on my crappy computer...

I guess the 360 version is exactly like the PC version, the Xbox 1 version was horrible.

I don't know about you guys but 99 achievements? Come on. Plus are they all can be done in single mode? I haven't played that much of Half life. I played the one on Xbox and for one day and wasn't that blown away.

It's the first time. If you have passed it, you can start a new game at the second stage "Red Letter Day" go through to his office, immediatly after entering you will see the mini-porter to your left. I did two things, not sure which triggered it. used it about 10-15 times trying to get it to break, found a box in a cabinet to the right if your looking directly at the mini-porter and when i threw that in and tried to transport it it broke. So not sure if you just need to use it a crapload of times, or if the box was the trigger. And remember not to save over your game! You can just exit without saving and still keep the achievment.

Hope it helps!

Thanks for the info, I knew there was some way to break the mini-telepoter, but I never tried throwing anything at it, and I only used it 5 times.



Guess I'll get it after I finish my first run through.

99 achievements split between five games? Seems totally reasonable to me.

here's what I did to get the "What Cat?" achievement.

I took the cactus off the mini-porter, then i activated the porter. Picked up one of the books off the shelf right beside the 'porter. Dropped the book on the ground. Then I turned on the 'ported, picked up the book and threw it into the porter while it was trying to teleport something onto the pad.

Boom.

If you are around at night, you can add me and I'll help you out. There is also the Achievement Trading thread where quite a few people are trying to get together for it as well.

Okay, I'll give it a shot. Hope it works....

Level Achievements in Team Fortress 2

For anyone else that is sick of lagging out 1 minute before the game is over, and after defending every inch of hydro no less . You are able to get all your perfect level achievements by setting up a 1 man system link. I'd advise only doing this if you've actually earned it but have been robbed by a laggy connection. Otherwise it just doesn't mean as much.

pick up one turret and use it to knock down another one, I did it by accident. you could also portal under one and over another one, that works also

yeah, it's way easier to pick up one turret and bonk it into another one. I didn't even have to knock the other turret over and i got the achievement.

If you don't want to pick it up, shoot a portal above one turret and then shoot a portal under a different one. It should fall through onto the other one.

Secret Achievment

Hi, i found a secret achievment in Half-Life 2 normal .

When you begin a new game you will meet Barney and after you jumped out off the window you will see a guard who says:" pick up the CAN and throw it in the trash".

Just pick up the can and throw it on him insteat off throwing it in the trash.

And you will earn a achievment.

NO Respect.

Any idea where the "Vorticough" achievement is? I know it's at the water Hazard but really never seem to find the singing one. Is it the one at the checkpoint or very hidden?

After you fight the helicopter and open the gate there will be a pair of sewage tunnels straight ahead. You need to enter the one on the left.

P.S. - You will need over 50 heath to get there because the water you have to walk through is tocix.

Portal Medal achievements

Are these levels timed? The only other ways I could think you could do poorly on a level are by dying or shooting too many times I guess. So how are you rated on these levels?
thanks in advance.
