PC Achievement Discussion

The achievements are now on the front page!

 

They have now put an end to the conventional "achievement match" by forcing the matches to be 3+ rounds. Now they will just have to play out two rounds after trading kills though, so that didn't really do much. However, this can be done in Player matches now, so those will be much easier to get.

 

It is also worth noting:

40 http://xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpgKill 10,000 people in versus ranked match total

 

If this means you have to get 20,000 kills to get the full 1000, this is ridiculously lame. I'm hoping getting the Ranked kills will unlock both achievements.

 

There is also one secret achievement, which I am going to guess is for killing the new boss character (the Brumak) on Hardcore (or higher) like the other boss achievements.

Yeh I reckon that is what it is as well Pants and it is going to be easier to get all the other achievements like Hammer or Longshot, because you'll proberbly be able to go into a game with a guest and just kill each other with desired kill but a bit harder as now Epic call the shots as it is dedicated servers I believe, the only achievement is seriously that I am not looking forward to, but not so serious don't care, and really achievement matches can still live as they can do the 1 rounders as a Seriously match couldn't they.

If you have vista you should be fine with this game right? I have vista so I hope so.

 

I hope annex kills count but won't really mind if they don't because I will want to get all the weapon kills and stuff. It has been said that you can get only 1 kill per match, well say I get one sniper kill can I then get 1 pistol kill and they still count?

Damn... way to go epic. You give us the exact same achievements but with a homosexual twist to it! 20,000 kills? On the PC? Come on, who wants to do that? Also I'm pretty sure that this is just like the console game but with like one extra scene in it. Also, does anyone know if PC gamers and console gamers will play together? Or will they each have there own server? If they are mixed it will be easy to boost on 2 accounts using your own xbox and PC.

If I finish getting 1000 in Halo 3 before this comes out I will buy it.

 

I have a question. If you DO NOT have Vista can you still get achievements?

Where did you here that?

Nope, you have to have Vista.

 

No you don't need Vista at all! Windows LIVE will work on XP with Gears, weather or not that lets Shadowrun and Halo 2 work I'm not sure.

 

IGN: Halo 2 and Shadowrun, the other two Microsoft-published games that support GFW-Live both required Vista - it says as much on the back of their retail boxes. Gears of War runs on XP and Vista. Why is that? Was that your decision at Epic, or something mandated by Microsoft?

 

Rod Fergusson: "Gears of War" runs on XP and Vista because we wanted to bring the "Gears" experience to the broadest audience possible.

I've also seen interviews with epic confirming it works on XP
