Only the first games in those series count.


Gotcha, what about remasters of the original title… like Halo: CE Anniversary and what about Batman: Arkham Asylum which spawned the Arkham series?


Sounds fun! What’s the verdict on Lego games? I’m guessing Lego Batman might count, since there were 3 of those, but not Lego Star Wars 2, even though it was the first Lego game on the 360, and had two Star Wars “sequels”? And echoing the previous question, would something like Prince of Persia Classic, or Pac-Man (Xbox 360 or Arcade Game Series) count?



Remasters of the originals are good.
Batman: Arkham Asylum is good.
LEGO Batman counts because there are three
Other LEGO titles do not
Prince Of Persia classic counts
Pac-Man is tougher, but I think the AGS version is okay.
Tomb Raider Anniversary would count too.


Awesome, thanks for the clarifications.


Appreciate it. Thanks!


Previous Completions:

Assassins Creed
CSI Hard Evidence
Walking Dead (Xbox 360)
Walking Dead
Sherlock Holmes vs Jack the Ripper


Do stacks count. For instance if I did Walking Dead on all systems every achievement would count right?
Also I know you said no other lego games. But doesn’t Lego Marvel Super Heroes have 3 in the series.


BioShock (Xbox 360) – Followed by BioShock 2 and Inifitite
Borderlands - Followed by Borderlands 2 and the Prequel (might be a stretch)
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - Followed by MW2 and MW3
Forza Horizon - Followed by Horizon 2 and Horizon 3
The Walking Dead - Followed by Season 2 and A New Frontier


There are 3 LEGO Star Wars games, 4 if you count Force Awakens


How much for completing a game this month?


Each achievement won this month will net you 1 entry.


3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures
Army of TWO
Assassin’s Creed
Batman: Arkham Asylum (Xbox 360)
Call of Juarez
Dark Souls
Dead Space
Gears of War
Mass Effect
The Walking Dead (Xbox 360)
Viva Piñata

If stacks count, then…

Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY
Batman: Arkham Asylum (PC)
Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY (PC)
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Dark Souls (PC)
Gears of War (PC)
Viva Piñata (PC)

It looks like you’re accepting games that didn’t necessarily debut on a Microsoft console, but I have a lot of classics and don’t really want to round them all up. This should be sufficient. :grinning:


Stacks count, yes.

No bonuses for completions in the month.

LEGO Star Wars - should the first be LEGO Star Wars II then?

First in the series, so jumping into the middle doesn’t count. So, Harry Potter - wouldn’t count in this case. Nor those classics Facial mentioned.

What is the other 3D Ultra Minigolf?


What about Lego Marvel? They have marvel super heroes 1 and 2 but also Avengers.
Star wars the original one came out on Xbox so lego SW 2 was already a sequel.


Yeah, I guess TA counts the Avengers as part of that series, so Marvel Super Heroes would count.
