I initially had “console” exclusive in the title, but realized that really limits it to old XBLA games and Kinect based titles. With some other exceptions.

I take it to be that it does not appear on any other console.


#9

That’s A Grind - Complete a game that takes at least 50 hours to complete (TrueAchievements suggested completion time)

This would mean the sum of base game plus any DLC’s and TU’s completion time estimates?
And I guess after summing you would get a range (e.g. 48-54 hours). So would the minimum or maximum in the range have to be >= 50


#10

The median would be 50 + hrs.


#11

I assume Hamster Wheel of Games - Complete an ACA NEOGEO title won’t be extended to NEOGEO games published by SNK. You want strictly Hamster published games. I love your completion challenge, but I’m proud to not have an ACA NEOGEO series game on my tag yet. As this is likely the case, I will only go for a 29 game completion. Not like any of it matters.


#12

For you, @Kingsman_2625 - I’ll make an exception.


#13

I feel you Kingsman. I don’t have any ACA NEOGEO games, as they aren’t really my thing. I might have to shoot for just 29 as well.

My first (of probably many) questions: Does Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice work for number 5? I initially read it as a VR game ported to Xbox, but now I think it actually means an Xbox game ported to VR. Am I correct?


#14

@Kingsman_2625 @Freamwhole
This funny because I am in the same boat. In fact I created this leaderboard last week (Sign up!)
https://www.trueachievements.com/leaderboard.aspx?leaderboardid=7895

Perhaps Fream could change the requirements to just be any game with “ACA” or “NEO” in the title. :grin:


#15

I can’t sign up, because I’ll play those games, but that would be a good compromise.


#16

Thanks for making an exception for us ACA snobs :joy:


#17

Not everyone may be aware that IronFistofSnuff is running a year long completion challenge over on TA. And you get a bonus if you complete Freamwhole’s challenge. Might as well do both, eh?
