    Default DP online achievements group

    I'm looking at some games I actually somewhat enjoy the online mode for, and they are all pretty much dead. And of course, they have online achievements that I don't have (usually because I don't buy games at launch very often). I'm sure many of you could say the same thing. So how about we team up against the annoyance of online play achievements?

    This thread is an interest check for now, but hopefully it will evolve. Post if you are interested in participating in this sort of thing, what games you would want to do, etc.

    I'm sure I have more games I am missing online achievements in, but for me personally off the top of my head, I still want to do some or all of the online stuff in the following games:

    Dark Sector (this can be done with just two people I believe, but will take awhile)
    Red Faction Guerrilla
    Saints Row (you need at least 4 people for most of these)
    Saints Row 2 (just mostly just rank badges, but a strongarm team makes it easier for everyone)
    Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix (these would go quick, one needs 4 people)

    If anyone needs the one for Dead Rising Case West, the co-op for this takes maybe 5 minutes. You only have to beat the last case together, not the whole game. So one boss fight and it's done. I'll help anyone do it, I have a save at the exact necessary spot.

    I remember helping some DP guys out with the first Saints Row before, but I was only there for like one night of it so it never became "my turn" or anything. Hopefully those guys got theirs taken care of though. I've got a second 360 and could potentially set up a second boosting player with that if need be for some games that I can borrow/rent, assuming my router feels like playing nice.


    So yeah, post your trouble games, games you'd be willing to help with, and any ideas you might have on making sure this gets done fairly with minimal "i got mine, logout" type drama occurring.

    Yeah, I'd be down for that. I know I still need the BK achivements, plus any other XBLA games that require online achievements (Bomberman, Poker Smash, N+, Dash of Destruction, Peggle, Puzzle Quest, many others).

    I'd be up for this if I had a 360.

    But since I don't... maybe some Steam games like Left 4 Dead or Team Fortress 2? I can help ya out with the Medic + Heavy / Demo / Soldier and Spy + Spy stuff..

    I'd help out for Demon's Souls trophies. I have all but 1 or two of the fully upgraded weapons. I'm pretty sure I still need the marrowstone weapon, and if you have that, you probably have all the others.

    Gapporin mentioned Bomberman, I know I still have some dumb things to do in that, like the all girls match and the cowboy one, if I recall.

    We could totally all team up to do Act Zero, if we hate ourselves enough.

    I have lots of games that could make this list but for now I'll keep it simple:

    TMNT Arcade
    TMNT: Turtles in Time Reshelled
    Super Contra
    F.E.A.R.

    I would totally be up for some Bomberman Act Zero. I have yet to play that game since I purchased it a few years ago. I need to see how god awful it is.

    I have Bomberman Live, if that's the game being referred to. Bought it but never played it and would be willing to join a session to do some boosting.

    I'm up for boosting achievements, just ask (I have a lot of disc games that haven't been played yet that aren't on my played games list, so I may have the game even if my account doesn't show it).

    I'm somewhat active on this site (Under the username Atariboy).

    http://www.xbox360achievements.org/

    Comes in handy getting online achievements for games that lack an active online community these days. Was just able to get the viral achievement for Marathon: Durandal despite the online multiplayer having long been a ghost town, thanks to this site.

    Most of those achievements wouldn't be super awful, it's just grindy as hell. There's one for destroying 1 million blocks for example.

    I'm sure there are ways to make it fun. I've found ways to have fun with most any game. It just depends on who you play it with.

    ACt zero has been sitting in my 360 for almost a year now, its not as horrible as the internets make you think, but it is VERY barebones overall and hard as fuck to get anywhere in.

    We also need to decide which games we are attempting this for. My initial list is already posted above but I have much more games than that. So someone needs to moderate a start time and the first group of games we will be going after.

    is.gd/DKTheArcadeRatXbox360 I'm good for almost anything you guys want to do. Well. Anything as long as I have it. Check that list, I also have a ton of XBLA games.

    If you really want to organize it you can use the gaming session tool over on True Achievements. Then you can set a date, time, length of session. It even sends you an email reminder of when the session is.

    Just my 2cents, it has really helped my group of friends get through the stupid online achievements.

    That sounds like a decent idea, I'll look into that tonight.

    edit: here we go, a test session to try this out, for Bomberman Live this upcoming Tuesday night.

    http://www.trueachievements.com/gami...essionid=66643

    just tell the site you want in, then mention you requested in here and I'll approve you. I've got it set for a 4 person match now but I can make it bigger if need be. Same for the 2 hours. Hopefully this will work out ok. we can change the dates and times around until we get into a good spot or whatnot over time.

    Bomberman session is now live, come join if you are interested.

    edit: and it's over. Sadly, no one from this thread showed! However i did meet another guy in-game who was looking to boost, so me and him got all our online achievements. As it turns out, Bomberman is a lot easier to do than we thought, as one person can sign in three guests / accounts and you can do your 4 player things with just the two of you that way. So if anyone in here needs theirs, it's simple, lemme know and I can help out.
