    Does it not discourage you from starting new games? Especially games that you may not like or w/e?

    Na, not really. I've never not bought a game because of achievements. I play what I want to play and achievements come second. That been said I guess most big AAA games tend to be on the easier side these days. I'm over grinding stuff these days too. I'll still go the extra mile but nothing too excessive anymore.

    What it has done is made me commit to games I do play. Before TA I had a whole bunch of games I'd played and then moved on from. Now I'll rarely have more than one game on the go and make sure I complete them before I move onto the next one. Helps keep my backlog somewhat down too. Like now I have 4 One box games sitting on the shelf. At one point on the 360 I must have had 30+, pretty sure there is a pic floating around in one of the old threads before I traded them all in.

    Battlefield Bad Company 2: Played through and finished this this week. Even got a couple of online achievements as there was a few people playing. It was a meh game. Felt pretty bland.

    Fun achievement story. Theres an online achievement for being the best squad 5 times. You can win it by yourself - basically hop in an attack/defend game with no defenders and rush through attacking and destroying 8 items. Takes about 5 minutes a time.

    Problem is people kept joining! It was driving me nuts I was even playing it at 5am and I'd get 6 out of the 8 things blown up and then as I go to the 2 left I'd get sniped outta nowhere. Actually made it quite fun though and intense not knowing if anyone was in the game or not.

    Wrapped it up for 32/50 achievements.

    Ryse: Started this one up now. Halfway through single player and at 15/58 achievements. Enjoying it a lot the combat system is good.

    Not sure what I'll get onto after that. I watched Taff play the Witcher 3 for a bit on Twitch the other night and I might hop into Witcher 2 although I'm worried it'll consume me. We'll see.

    XBox Games to Wrap Up: 153
