About Time Stamps.

I'm anal when it comes to time stamps. When I play a co-op game with a friend and the internet drops, I would make sure not to get any achievement that may come our way and wait for the connection to come back. I just like knowing when I got what achievement. That's all.

I did come across a few times where the time stamps helped out. Doing online co-oping with a friend on a game I haven't touched in years, I checked my achievements and noticed that I am playing the game on the same month and week that I last got an achievement. MFW

Also, comparing achievements on the Xbox Live site among friends, kind of a satisfaction knowing that you got some of the achievements faster than your friend.

Also, it lets me know how fast I beat a game.


May not make sense to you but the same could be said when someone ask "Why you care for achievements?". So yeah, I care for achievements too and the time stamps.

Quick reminder for all who are chasing this achievement on the correct dates or at least getting the time stamp on a valid date. Currently is April fools in Australia and the rest of the world should e waking to it. Time to go visiting again.

I don't know, but I think today is the day to meet up with Calendar Man. I don't know what holiday, or what's special about today.

I put the reminder in my phone, so it must be something. I put it in my phone like the day after Halloween. Haven't talked to him yet today.

Just a reminder, and hopefully right day.

Shouldn't be. Mother's Day is Sunday (13th).

EDIT: And looking, last year Mother's Day was on the 8th. So if you plugged in the dates after Halloween, you'd have the 2011 date, not 2012. I'd suggest when you visit him, to update your reminders.

I remember Mother's Day was on the 8th last year, so I thought it was weird for this weird. I just checked. It is on the 13th, the calendar has updated.

I was curious why it was today (remember I checked last year, so then it was different).

I checked, it's on 13th of Sunday, this Sunday. Gotta make another return!

I went in to my google calendar on android and have it pop up as a reminder on at 10 am on days for calendar man. I don't plan on doing the achievement offline ever unless I plan on getting rid of the game or have gotten the rest of the achievements I might.

Yes, I have. I totally let that part slide. I didn't think that far ahead last year.

I have my reminders set at 12 pm, so it won't wake me in the morning (if it happens to be on a weekend)

It was the last achievement I got for the game before I moved on to another game but I did it offline and I don't mind it not having the time stamp but every time I played a different game then came back to arkham city the achievement would be in the recent achievement unlocked on my profile but after I got another achievement in arkham city it stopped doing that. I guess this is what achievements do that don't have the time stamp but just get another achievement in the game and it should stop

I did this one offline, as I rented it. it is not the only cheevo I have without a timestamp, there are a couple others I have out there somewhere without it. Not to big a deal IMO...BTW, the Calender Man was totally worth it, as he was one messed up dude and told some interesting stories.

Mother's Day is in 3 days. Just a reminder to whoever is getting them legit or just wants a timestamp to finish this off.

you'll still get a time stamp as long as you're online for the last one. i just did offline for all of them except mothers day (the day i went for the achievement), then logged into xbox live and it updated the date to mothers day, i got the achievement pop and a time stamp for that date. i think fathers day is the next one you can do in june.

When I got this achievement, I changed the dates on my XBox, then I went in and talked to him on the dates. Then, I didn't get the achievement, turns out, you need to let the game save every time you talk to him...2 hours of my time wasted, lol.

Just another friendly reminder that it's that time again. Make sure to visit him today if you're doing it legit or looking for a timestamp.

No shit, Einstein. The calendar crosses out the months. Most people would play it safe and make sure the game saved first then do it.

It's actually easier and quicker than the xbox version as with GFWL all you have to do is change your system clock and he will talk to you, you can get around 3 or 4 different dates done before he will stop talking to you so what you do is exit the court from the back door and it will save your game, then enter the building again and get the rest done, it will give you the timestamp for the real time that you did it as you can still be connected to the internet to get this one.

Yes. Make sure you are offline (I take my wireless adapter out). Change the date on your Xbox, load the game, go see the Calendar Man, talk to him, exit the courthouse. Exit to Dashboard. Change the date, and go through all the steps again.

I have two months left to go before I get the achievement!

Since it isn't a "real" holiday, I figured a little advance warning would be in order. Thursday is the next date to speak with Calendar Man, for those wanting to do it legit or for a timestamp.

I am not really hard up for the time stamps. But I do have seven of these dates and I believe today is one of them. I will probably do the remaining dates offline and might as well connect for the final one.
