also, does anyone have quick ways to get the Megaton, Rashberry Gluttony, Int'l Pinata of Mystery, Rainbow of Pinatas and So Awesome achievements? those are (pretty much) the only ones i have left, and want to get them the fastest possible way...
any ideas, tips or advice, please let me know.
Play All Challenge Events: I tried everything in practice mode and strangely, it unlocked after playing a mission that I KNOW I'd already done. You should be able to just let it run though. There's like 42 challenge events, so make sure you have them all unlocked.

Megaton: I got this naturally while going after other acheivements. You have to hit each pinata with a fiesta missle at least once. You should get it while going after Rainbow of Pinatas.

Rashberry Gluttony: Just go into practice mode and do a few rounds of bowling.

Int'l Pinata of Mystery: Just start a race (works best with 4 controllers) and race up to a spot with lots of powerup pickups. Just "drive" around in circles picking up and using the powerups. Eventually you'll get lucky and get all of them off before the other guys finish the race. Using 4 controllers ensures the race won't end too early.

Rainbow of Pinatas: Use two controllers and select a character with player 2. Then select that same character with player 1. Do a short game and win or lose, it doesn't matter. Then move onto the next character choosing first with player 2.

Master of Unlocking: Barry gives you the lockpick for free near the beginning and you're able to unlock any door that would normally require the sword key. In other words, just keep playing the game to unlock that one.

I tried this is 'practice' mode and did not get it. I guess it has to be done in a full game.

Once again this did not unlock for me in 'practice' mode.

I was going for the 'short cut' achievements and got if after only doing about half of them. I know without a doubt that there were some on the list I never did. Oh well.....not complaining.

This one baffles me. How many GD races do I have to do?

even if someone hasn't played the game. you always start out with like half of the events unlocked already. basically i think you need to be the host (the one with all unlocked), set a game to long, and hope you get an event that someone doesn't have unlocked. I did this and got it on the 2nd challenge event(person had non unlocked).

This share and share alike ach. is killing me! It's the last one I need, and for the life of me I can't get it. I have played many games with people who don't have the unlock all challenges ach. and still can't get this thing to unlock. Even tried the a new account I made and that didn't work... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: I finally got it! This ach. is really retarded... Good luck to all who choose to play this.

I'm trying that one also right now, and stuck on it. does anyone know for sure if this will unlock in practice mode? Or do you need to be playing the actual game?

You can get all ach. in practice mode. I didn't have all the challenges and went and played the ones I knew I hadn't played and got the all challenges ach.
Here is what I did for the pumpkin one... Plug in a 2nd and 3rd controller keep tapping the joystick with your finger, toe, whatever makes you happy so they don't time out. This makes it so you only have to fight one other guy for pumpkins. First try was success for me

For anyone still wondering.. you CAN unlock the Play All Challenge Events achievement in practice mode. Just be careful when X'ing out ones you believe you've played as like Messy Mayhem is a pumpkin level, there is another level just like it, except it has the red ants running in it. So, make sure you play both! Hope this helps in future Party Animal'ers ha!

Can you get the 'use every character' and 'win with every character' achievements in practice? Those didn't pop for me.

No, unfortunately you can't. You have to win actual games to get those achievements. Just play through on short (having 3 extra controllers helps) and make sure you win.

I did short games and won all events with each character. I did not get the achievement for completing all 8 nor winning with all 8. I did not use the main color as I was trying to get rainbow as well. Does it have to be the main color?

Did you get the rainbow achievement? If you managed to get that, but did't get either of the others, than I'm not sure what to say at the moment. If you didn't get the rainbow achievement either, you may have passed over one of the characters.

To get the rainbow one I have to pick the character with another controller first, right? I'll just have to to go back and do them again. I know I did Hudson because I got the points for using all four. I know I used Penutia pretzel since I got those points as well.

Alright. The best way that I found to get your achievements was to systematically move through each of the characters. And yeah, you have to select the character you want with a second controller BEFORE you select it in order to use the alternate color. Start with Hudson and move straight on right across the top row, playing and winning short games. Do the same for the bottom row and you should get all of the achievements you're after.
