I changed my achievement streak on TA to be Central so I could verify it was what I thought.

Which is why they are all turned off for me.
Sorry if this was already addressed. Are completions the original achvees or do you have to include DLC? This both arcade and retail.

Please read and rate my reviews and guides, and check out my leaderboard and join for fun!
As previously stated, I will check at least 3 sources for timestamps, as we know GTN sometimes is not as accurate as we would like. So, keep scoring those points!

Aug 16 - Aug 29, at least one Achievement WITH Gamerscore per day (so, that is two boxes on my board...)

Posted a pic of my game of Guacamelee in the VINGO Chicken thread. If it has to be video, well, I will get around to it whenever, but, it is clearly Guacamelee, and I am clearly in the Chicken Suit.

Seems like not a good experience for people who've been busting their humps for all of Aug.

I hope Zombie's got some ideas/ lessons learned on how to handle these scenarios. He did say this was the first and we'd be dealing with learning pains so I'm not being critical. There's a LOT I like about this idea, the main problem is we are all gamers and try to figure out the best way to 'game' the system.

I never really understood the mad rush to VINGO right away...

I was waiting to see what the bonus would be, but then three people VINGO'd, and we were told never mind on the bonus this round.
Question:

If Episode 1 of The Wolf Among Us counts as completing an Arcade Game, could completing each episode count as a different arcade game?

Not sure where I can find 10 arcade games to complete...
I win. I've unlocked 10000 points since yesterday. Enjoy the read. lol
