Arcade Crazy Discussion



Are you an old school gamer? Do you prefer arcade games over having to go to the store and pick up a disc? Do you just LOVE your favorite independent developer (I'm looking at you, NinjaBee!) Are you perhaps just a teensy bit unstable? Are you just Arcade Crazy?

I bet you are!!!

Check out the DLC entry on this checklist and see if you have all 100 of the arcade achievements every Xbox gamer should have. Point your friends to the Arcade Crazy list and then laugh at their miniscule number!

Did you survive 1,000,000 points in Geometry Wars? Add one to your number!
Did you master the eight port challenge in Outpost Kaloki X? Add one to your number!
Did you ruin Christmas in Deathspank? Add one to your number!
Did you...well, you get the idea!

Go find out what YOUR crazy number is and let us know what your proudest moment was in getting one of these ultimate arcade achievements. For that matter, which one are you going get next?

What's your crazy number? (Mine is currently 32.)

Is your number high enough to get an award? It just might be!

NOTE: Any member can activate and use the checklist. However, in order to apply for the award, you need to have been a member for 6 months and have at least 100 posts.



Bronze: 10, Silver: 20, Gold: 30, Platinum: 50, Emerald: 75, Diamond: 100

If you have enough unlocked to get an award, make sure your profile is public and then create a post in this thread, providing a link to each achievement on your Xbox profile, following the guidelines below so we can verify them.

You have to add "&compareTo=gamertag" (gamertag being YOUR gamertag) to the end of your link.

First, type the name of the game and achievement, for example: N+ - Complete All 50 Episodes

Then go to xbox.com and find that game on your profile. Highlight and copy the URL, in this case:

Code:
 https://live.xbox.com/en-US/Activity/Details?titleId=1480656988
Highlight the game in your post, click on the Insert Link icon (looks like a globe with a chain link on it) and then past in the URL. At this point you must manually add to the end of the URL "&compareTo=Just Creech", but replacing my gamertag with yours. Any spaces in your gamertag you can replace with %20 if you have issues with the link not working.

After you post, TEST IT! If the links don't work correctly, you won't get the award. It should look like this:

N+ - Complete All 50 Episodes



The Arcade Crazy award was developed as a collaborative effort by the x360a Representers and the staff. The discussion is here if you are interested.

And here I was trying to figure out what to try and complete in the 1200g I have left before I hit 300k. I think I'm going to have to draw from this list... Mark of the Ninja, Wolfenstein, Chime... I think they just got bumped up in priority.

So close! I have 1 on this list. I was hoping for 0 since I never play Arcades.

Why Minecraft, why?!

KABOOM! Solid 10 here. At least I get the bronze award!

Creech, the South Park achievement is missing its name (Couch Potato). Right now, only the name of the game shows.

Well, I currently have double gold for these awards, but I'm thinking that double emerald should be my goal. Both lists have about 20 games that I just have no iterest in, so double diamond isn't really reasonable. I'm not really wanting to spend all that time and money on games I have no interest in just for bragging rights.

currently at 18, mostly from the quirky list...lots of the games that i have from the list i've still not started though, and probably won't now i'm taking a break from xbox

was there another one for retails, because oddly i've got 18 of those as well...found it very odd that i have the same number from both lists

not going to enter for the awards though, too tired & lazy to make a post in the other thread, and with my console hiatus, i will not be getting any of the other any time soon

undoubtedly there will be some maniac who has the majority of them, and my hat is off to them

props to you guys for adding some fun & reason back into achievements though, have fun all participants....now i'm off to decide if i should go back to bed or play more deus ex on my PC

I'm currently at 22, if I can get to 30 then I'll go for this as my first award! I'm doing much better at the arcade's list than retail, I have another 15 games that are in the list but I can't see me getting more than 10 of them (Luxor 2 isn't ever getting played again and I could live until I'm a hundred and still not have the skill for Grand Pearl Pooh-Bah!).

Worms 2 is another game currently on sale this week, but I'm not sure I want to pick it up where there's boosting involved...the list's achievement is a fast one but the 350g will be a bit more of a bore.

Man you should have more with that 99% completion percentage and 300k gamerscore. I think I got +10 as well, just haven't had the time to submit them for the award.

I'm sorry. Please don't beat me anymore, master, me body is already so achy.

I just play more retail, and when I go for arcade, I usually pick only easy ones because I use them as fillers between retails.

Been downloading a lot of demos to see if I like the remaining titles, and Wolfenstein 3D seems to be a delisted game- is this only in the UK or is it gone everywhere, and was this known by the creators of the list when they decided to include it? Seems a bit unfair to completionists to add a delisted game, especially when 99 achievements isn't enough to get the diamond award.

I actually do have the trial for the game thanks to downloading it a few years back, but I can't buy the game through it (which I think I remember reading was a workaround for some delisted titles).

The entry for Wolfenstein is still up on XBox.com, but there is no link to download it. I know that it was possible to download the game when the list was created (I double checked), so the removal must have been quite recent. Hopefully this is just a temporary glitch and it will be returned to the marketplace like Doom and the other ID games were.

If it is a permenant removal, I guess we will have to swap in a new achievement and remove Wolfenstein from the list.

Edit: Looks like the game was delisted two or three weeks ago. So not that long after the list went live.

This is an inevitable occurrence, but a bit disappointing that it happened so quickly. Any suggestions on what to replace it with?

The list of achievements that were removed for not being quirky enough or just not being as quirky as the achievements already on the list still exists. I'd wait until the end of February to swap it out, since I can't actually find any reason why the game was removed, so it may be temporary.

Uno - Bluff
Both Uno games are in quirky right now, and the other one seems to fit a little better.

Deadliest Warrior - That Was Sparta!
After seeing the amount of grinding required for this achievement, maybe it's a bit too annoying to be quirky. The same reference is in Mini Ninjas Adventures, so if we want it, it can come from there.

Banjo-Tooie - All Beaten Up
While the achievement has the potential to be quirky, it doesn't look like that many people do it the quirky way.

Torchlight - Only a Master of Evil
A great game, but the achievement itself is straight forward, and many other achievements have made the same reference.

Those were on the list but removed and could take Wolfenstein's place.

I'd think that "This is Sparta!" from Mini Ninjas Adventures would be a better fit than the one from Deadliest Warrior.

As a result, my suggestions would be:

Mini Ninjas Adventures - This is Sparta!
Kicking 100 enemies comes almost naturally over the course of the game and it references one of those stupid over the top movie moments that became exceedingly famous.

Torchlight - Only a Master of Evil
You don't need to do anything unusual to unlock this, since it is the achievement for beating the final boss. But in the end it's a great game and it's a reference that most people would know.

If there are any other suggestions, they would be welcome.

Oh, and Creech, there's one more little business matter that needs to be attended to....

Some "quirky" achievements I can think of (and already have, because I'm a cheater like that):

The Maw- Six Meals a Day
Play during Maw's six meal times: Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dunch, Dinner, and Midnight Feast.

Track and Field- Bird Catcher
Spear a bird!

Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures: Episode 4: The Bogey Man- One Gnome Too Many
Dispose of a mythical character

The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai- The Peter Moore Achievement
Pay homage to one of our generation's greatest rock performances ever.

Who Wants To Be a Millionaire: Special Editions- It's easy when you know...
Walk away with nothing (single player game)

I would personally pick The Maw or Dishwasher out of that list, as I feel they're the most iconic titles and the games should be ones that everyone should play at least once.

The only one I have from the hard side is from Hexic. I guess I'm not very talented.
