Upcoming Award: Arcade Crazy

I would like to add a new award series that is earnable by members of the site, but I need help fleshing out the details. The idea is to come up with 100 arcade achievements spread across all genres with a range of difficulties. As members of the site unlock more and more of them, they get different levels of the award such as Bronze, Silver, etc.

I need input on two different items:

  • First, what should the award be called? I personally like "Arcade Crazy", but it isn't about me, it is much more about what you guys would like.
  • Second, which achievements should be included?

If you are not an official x360a representer, please don't reply to this thread as your post will be removed.

Games must meet the following criteria to be considered:
  • LIVE arcade only (no WP, Win8, etc)
  • Region free
  • Must be able to earn 100% of the achievements in the title (no glitched achievements)
  • Must not use EA servers (since they shut them down all the time)
Ideally, I would like to come up with a list of 120-150 and then trim the list down to an even 100.

I played the game first time in 2008. Got the Dig achievement yesterday. Make your conclusions. By the way I suggest to add the Dig achievement to the list at least I have one already then.

You basically need one achievement from every classic first:

Pac Man
Ms. Pacman
Tetris
Galaga
Sega (collections)
Namco arcade collections
etc


Modern Classics:

Portal
Braid
Super Meat Boy
Fez
Limbo
Walking Dead
etc

Platformers:

Super meat boy
Braid
Fez
N+
Limbo
etc

You could then make it so each game has 3 objectives to achieve one easy, one normal, and one hard. A hard objectives gives you 3 points, normal 2, easy 1 or something like that.

A little unfair singling out EA there, Creech. They are not even close to the only ones that shutdown servers.

A few great ones:

No Point in Dying from Limbo. Not hard, just pretty much impossible on your first runthrough since the game has a few too many surprise ways to die.

All Hail the Splode King from Splosion Man. Hardcore mode is pretty easy up until the 3rd act. Assuming you don't need the cakes, of course.

Grand Pearl Pooh-bah from Hexic HD. The game is free. And awesome.

Peggle PHD from Peggle. I think the challenges are a little more fair than clearing every peg in the game.

Alive and Planting from Plants vs Zombies. Mostly because the game gets serious at around wave 35.

With the retail version of this award, we did 50 "hard" achievements and 50 "quirky" achievements. I think aiming for the same with this would be good.

For a quicky one, how about this Heated Rivalry from Toy Soldiers: Cold War? I think the name is kind of amusing given the description: Call in a Napalm Strike in any Versus game

So, quirky side:

Welcome to Die! from X-Men Arcade. Not hard but the Engrish is just awesome.

Ten Minutes Later... from Secret of Monkey Island. Hilarious things happen when you wait for 10 minutes for Guybrush to die.

Out of the Blue from Portal Still Alive (this one could be classed as "hard," too)

Smarty Pants... from Raskulls. You can do this by local boosting or being a dick to your friends. I prefer the latter.


Hard side:

Seeker from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. You can make this easier with a good map, but it is still a nice little challenge.

Sore Thumb award from Boom Boom Rocket. It will take about 10 minutes to do 5 laps and a lot of skill as the game speed increases a lot by the end.

Chancelor of Catan from Catan. Playing legit, you would need to win minimum 100 games or play minimum 500 games.

So, I've been looking into some other possibile achievements and I'm not sure what else should or should not be added. Given that there is not as much discussion on the arcade version of this award, the smaller pool of achievements to draw on and the smaller pool of games to draw from it might be a good idea to limit the number of achievements to 30 on each side as that is the current max for arcade games (fitting since it is 50 on each side for the retail version). Make the levels 5/10/20/30/45/60.

Any thoughts?

That certainly is a possibility. On the other hand, there is no rush on this, and given the Representers are really just starting to kick off I say we give it a while. I haven't even offered up my list, so maybe I will go do that right now to help.

Just an outside idea, if this doesn't get flowing eventually and the representers agree. Allow each staff/sub 1 suggestion and the reps can choose which if any to accept, just to get ideas moving and start filling up a list? Reps would still get final say for every achievement/game that makes the cut or not?

And sorry for posting again. Not a suggestion, just pointing it out. Risk Factions is EA.

All staff are, by definition, Representers. As such they can participate all they would like to already.

I'm sure they've already been suggested, but

I own a number of them, yet I don't play very many arcade games.

As you can see from the sig, I don't play that many arcade games either. I just looked into it and there are only half as many arcade games as there are retail games, and with far fewer achievements, there just aren't as many achievements to draw on. That was the biggest thing I was getting at.

Anyway, a few others that we might add:

Hard:
Pharoh of Two Lands from Luxor 2. The game that screwed up so many gamer tags, but this one is just a grind, not insanely skill based.

Superhero from Earthworm Jim HD. I'd prefer a speed run to the hardest difficulty. Also might work in quirky with "Snot an Achievement."

Endless Mode from Bejeweled 2. Considering how much time I spent playing Bejeweled on MSN games, I kind of have to suggest it.

Aqua: Naval Warfare

Wavebreaker: Surviving 25 waves in Skirmish mode. Even with starting at a higher level, it was really difficult. I contacted the game developer to ask them if they could make it easier to obtain because it just didn't seem possible. They responded that they would think about it (never did it).

I had been contacted and actually somewhat harassed after I got it from someone. They kept calling me a cheater and were very rude saying it was impossible to get. Was kind of funny.

A few quirky suggestions:

Sonic CD - 88 Miles per Hour. Because Sonic should be on the list.

Watchmen Part 2 - Gentleman.

Walking Dead - Too Much Salt will Kill You. Brilliant game, and one of the few achievements that qualifies as quirky.

Fruit Ninja Kinect - Edumacated.

Castle Crashers - Kay Eye Ess Ess.

Texas Cheat 'Em - You're Missing the Point Here...

Hard achievements:

Kinect Playfit - 150k Ultra Marathon

Not to throw wrenches or anything but Marble Blast Ultra has been delisted, so imo it shouldn't be added.

For hard:
True diabolical power! from Guwange

And one for hard:

30G - Silent, But Deadly
Beat the final Boss without healing.
