Cris: I will do Kinect Sports with you. You're also the only one with a point in the bye pot.

Cris: 4 achievements from 4 different Kinect games, new or not. I have 3 done already Big Grin

Fsh: No. Earn more achievements from more Kinect games than anyone this week.

Thank you for helping me clarify my grammatical errors Big Grin

Oh okay. What I have in my head is I will track how many games you earned achievements in for the week and find an average. Say you earned 10 achievements in 5 games - you averaged 2 per game. Say I earned 15 achievements in 5 games - I averaged 3 per game. And now I just realized I need to make a minimum, because earning 15 in one game shouldn't count. I'll do all the math on it, There will be a fine line for us.

In other news, I have earned the bonus for the week - 4 achievements in 4 different games. All I need now is a bit more gs and I have the week done - just gotta stay ahead of Cris!
bye week point!!!

I lost like 3 pounds... I look super flat in this pic....

I'm the kind of guy who stops the microwave at 1 second just to feel like a bomb defuser.

I told you it would get harder! Plan it out for week 6! If you do 6 gems, that's 60 achievements for 300 gamerscore...

I put up #5 with 4 achievements today, just to be sure, and am rocking over 450 Gs (I think)... Is it my week to lead??

I put all the entries for the bye week, and out of 2 entries, both were Cris's. Therefore, you can take week 5 off and still earn the participation and bonus points. However, that means no chance for the leader point... You gonna risk it?

Double check my numbers guys. I am pretty sure just Cris, Fsh,and I are the only ones who scored. Not a good show. I have already hit week 5s participation total, and am working with Cris to get the bonus. It's not too hard folks, just gotta play! Being sore is worth it! I love it!

Looking at stats for myself, I have put up exactly 1000gs in 77 Kinect achies for September '15. In both this cycle and cycle 1, I have put up 4865gs in 213 Kinect achies out of a total of 10065gs in 578 achies. Almost 48.5% of my increase for the year has been in Kinect only. Why does this matter? I started to lose weight in 2010, slowly but surely. I started 2010 at 230lbs. I started 2015 at 205 lbs. It took me 5 years to lose the first 25 lbs. Since I started Kinect this summer, I have lost another 30lbs since June. I am down to an average of 175lbs. I have done nothing else but change my portions, eating smaller meals more often, eating healthier foods (no McD's, etc...) and making sweet love to the missus. Once I added Kinect, the pounds dropped.

I haven't seen some family members since Christmas '14, when I was still around 205 - and seeing me recenty, they are astounded that playing video games has changed me so much. I feel better, have more energy, and just a better life outlook in the last 3-4 months because of this challenge.

If you need motivation, message me. I have been able to motivate folks through real personal interaction via texts and facebook and stuff. It's important to me that you guys succeed with me. Yeah, we're worlds apart, but in this modern information age, that no longer applies. Jeff and I have especially become great friends over the months. Cris and I are budding a friendship now. The 3 of us live within hours of each other, so I forsee a little mini achievement fest coming, AZ/NV style Big Grin

Anyways, the reason for the TLDR rant:

So having only 3 people total participate this week really deflates me. It's really not too hard to play a bit daily to add these points! I implore you to revisit your goals and efforts and really sink yourself into the rest of cycle 2. If I can do it, a physically disabled veteran with a prosthetic, than you guys can too. Yeah, that's right. Don't let the gimp show you guys up! I don't think I can win the badge a second time; I need to be defeated!

looks good to me. so for the leader goal we need to get higher scoring achievements? so say I get 500gs per 5 achievements the average = 100gs. Is that correct? is that how were doing it?

And since the 'official site' is not working at the moment, and looking for a registered traedmark of 'Achievement Fest' failed to produce a result, it would be best if you just kept to yourself sometimes. Go hijack another thread.

I am at 16 achievements now, averaging 5.4 gs per achievement - I kinda screwed up.

Well back on topic, it sucks I was in last place, but I did only join so it wouldn't be 2-3 of you. I wanted to score more Kinect points, just a pain in the butt to set things up. So much easier to lay in bed and go through my digital library for something to play sitting on my ass. I know that's the entire point of the competition, but you can't win them all Wink
