XBox 360 achievements are an easy target. Everyone's done it before.

Why rename skill slots achievement?

#3 slowpoke Fri, 8 May 2009 15:22:08
I don't understand the negative votes here.

Let's balance it out. * puts in a Good vote *

Well, to be honest, that was an apt rating for it anyway.

We'd be renaming conducts achievements, and making a way for them to become part of a player's permanent record. And adding some new things that aren't as hair-pullingly difficult to accomplish, and serve to satisfy those of us with a bit of casual gamer in them. I'm not sure it's a bad idea, myself, especially if you could use them to mark milestones in the game (the way devnull's stars do) or fun and quirky YAFMs to get (like falling into a pit as a pit fiend), or downright strange things that some players do (like petrifying a mail daemon). They could also help with major voluntary challenges that aren't conducts, like extinctionism.

Admit it. If there were achievements in 4.0, you know you would try to do them. I'm not nearly good enough to do the harder conducts yet, so easier achievements would interest me.

4:20?
What does it mean?
Is it for the "MLG 420" parody?
