AchievementsRandom Thought: Time never moves slower than when you are watching a progress bar. I think there's a special version of hell where you are forced to re-watch your own life as a spectator. I will be particularly upset about all the time I spent watching a blue bar that said 89%.

In other news, I picked Geoff's achievement penance from our contest. He has to get the "7 Day Survivor" Achievement from Dead Rising. It's my most memorable award in any game and requires you to play for literally 14 hours straight. No saves, no powering down. It's the marathon of the gaming world. There are entire FAQs dedicated to this Achievement and theories on using the Xbox controller's auto-off feature to help you time your Frank feedings. The best part is, I know it will tie up his console for at least two days which will help me get an even further lead on him. If he tries to do it at the office, I will personally unplug the box when he's not looking.

Basically, the Achievement requires you to stay alive in a zombie infested mall for 7 "days" of gameplay, where each day lasts 2 hours real time. And, you can't just find a safe place to sit and leave your box on. The character, Frank, has a slowly degenerating health bar, so you have to venture into the mall to find food. You have to feed him at least once every 15 minutes, assuming your little shopping trips don't further drain your health with all the zombie encounters. It's a really unique game type and I think only a handful of people have the achievement. I got it about three months after the game came out and I was ranked 19th in the world at the time. I wasn't even going for rank, just trying to get the Achievement to finish out the game. I have read that some people have made it as far as 14 days (28 hours of gameplay). I don't see how that is possible.

I see that he is bitching on the main page about my choice. He says he needs to finish the game to even unlock the Survival mode. I don't think finishing a game like Dead Rising is a chore, he should have done it a year ago. And, I would like to point out that I actually have this Achievement myself, it's not like I tried to lay something impossible on him. Let's see if he has the same standards as I do when he wins a contest. I think his scariest item in the trophy case is his "1 star to 6 star" Achievement in NCAA 08. I just want to warn him publicly that I can lay "100% Lego Star Wars Complete" on him at a moments notice. You want an escalation to the conflict, Geoff? I'll go toe to toe with you.

I wish we lived in a world where your idea of conflict escalation was much more widespread.

Lego Star Wars takes a LOOOOOOOOng time. Man staying alive for 7 days, that sounds difficult, I'll have t give that game a try

it's like I tried to lay something impossible on him.

I think you mean it's not like, there, dear.

Unless you really have no faith in Geoff. In which case, carry on.

Nope. You can only use what you have and what you get from fighting the boss characters. Which further depletes your health.

100% completing lego star wars would be preferable for me rather than the 7 day survivor. That game is ridiculously fun, especially co-op.
#17  Posted 7 years ago
for real though. you guys have passed nerd status.

you're now at like...super mega virgin band geek nerd status.
#18  Posted 7 years ago
Burnie, this seriously comes to mind every time I hear you're after achievements. I know you've probably seen it a thousand times, but here is a thousand and one.

I hope its worth it.

Can you run that mode with the real Megaman gun you unlock from the 53,998 (or however many it was) zombie kill? I didn't have it when I tried the survival mode. It makes boss battles 2 shot affair.
#23  Posted 7 years ago
that's it. Dead Rising is my gaming goal for the holidays! i have to have it done for Winter-een-mas!!!!!!!!
#24  Posted 7 years ago
Wow I had no idea how grave the situation of the conflict really was. I watched my room mate try to get that achievement. I laughed my ass off when he only had 13 minutes left to go and we had a power outage. Ahh good times.
#25  Posted 7 years ago
Okay, this is getting out of hand. You two need to sort this out the old fashioned way. Trousers round the ankles, hands behind your head, four litres of coke and aim! Whoever hits the ceiling first wins.
#26  Posted 7 years ago
That sounds like fun. =D
#27  Posted 7 years ago
100% Complete on the new Lego Star Wars is hell for me. I'm not big into achievements, but I refuse to only half complete a game based on Legos, no mater how big of a pain it is to find every red brick, and traffic light.

I swear... you are worse than brothers. you love eachother, but you fight constantly.
