The new year rolls on with more new things!

More new awards! For both guides and road maps, we now have 6 tiers, with awards incrementing at 3, 6, 10, 15, 20 and 30. In addition we added 6 new awards for what we think of as micro games. Micro games are the - typically free - games that are available that have fewer than 200 gamerscore available. Many of the free games available for Windows Phone, Windows 8, and Kinect Labs fall into this category. For these games, the guides and road maps are typically so small that we decided to create this special group of awards just to track them. Plus hey, new awards! We like that.

I also standardized the naming and descriptions of the awards a bit to make things easier on me and more clear for you.

Here are the new awards for achievement guides:

Platinum (15 guides published)


Emerald (20 guides published)


Diamond (30 guides published)



Here are the new road map awards:

Platinum (15 road maps published)


Emerald (20 road maps published)


Diamond (30 road maps published)



Here are the Micro Guide awards:

Bronze (3 micro guides published)


Silver (6 micro guides published)


Gold (10 micro guides published)


Platinum (15 micro guides published)


Emerald (20 micro guides published)


Diamond (30 micro guides published)

Yay for new awards! It's good to see that the guide community has grown so much that we need to make more!

I to doubt I'll ever get the Micro versions, but I'll definitely aim for the Emerald and Diamond ones in the future!

So can we write a guide and roadmap for all of the new awards and get credit for a guide and a roadmap?

Great to see these awards come into effect. I love the look of the emerald one especially.

One day I hope to make them mine. Before that time comes though I imagine I will need to start completing games before they have two sequels out.

What if we submit or had a guide published pre-micro guide award? What's the story then?

As long as you've reached one of the milestones and got published, then you get the award. Just like any other the site offers.
