Viva Pinata: Party Animals Achievements revealed, nostalgic, awesome

1:59 AM on 10.11.2007 // Earnest Cavalli

(Editor's Note: Look up. See that? Now that is efficient use of limited headline space! -- Nex)

A thread popped up moments ago on NeoGAF -- yes, I F5 the hell out of that place -- revealing the Achievements for the upcoming Xbox 360 party title Viva Piñata: Party Animals. Normally this sort of thing wouldn't warrant more than an upturned nose or maybe a coffee cup spilled across my keyboard, but according to the poster -- a member of the dev team behind VP:PA -- Achievement number 20 comes courtesy of the NeoGAF forum members themselves. When faced with writer's block, Gazunta asked the GAF faithful to come up with some Achievements for him and based on the size of this thread, they did so in spades.

So what exactly is #20? And I quote:

20. Classic Gamer Reward
Enter the classic gamers code while on the START screen. For a hint, go right into your manual...

Aside from being an ingenious psuedo-Easter-Egg, that's exactly the sort of Achievement we'd like to see more of. Sure, earning points for completing titles is well and good, but we always prefer the Konami code to lame fetchquests or Achievements earned by rubbing one off into the ring of lights on your 360 before sprinkling the whole thing with wolfsbane.

You heard it here first: The Konami Code always beats autoerotic manipulation and low-level witchcraft. 

Oh, and in case you're still wondering about it, hit the jump for the full list of Achievements.

I finally backed Indivisible. After hearing about Red from Transistor, I played the demo again. That platforming is solid and I'm used to the combat now.

Man, I completely forgot how awesome Pokemon Black and White's soundtrack is. The Vs. Trainers theme is probably one of the best I ever heard, if not the best in the entire series: [youtube][/youtube]

Apparently the upcoming Tri-Force heroes update makes the local-play only items possible to get for everyone. That's pretty great!

Playing For Glory earlier today, some guy beat me and changed his name to "ifukdu_up". I won next round and he changed it to "ILETUWIN". I then 2-0ed the little sucker, and he left the lobby. I took great pride from this incident.

Why the hell are we suddenly accepting micro transactions in fully priced games? It used to be only acceptable in free-to-play games but its sickening that even AAA developers like microsoft are on the bandwagon.

If you're ever writing about something from the heart, and you stop and think "I don't know how people will react to me if I write this" then you absolutely should go ahead. Passionate conviction is often the only voice you'll have.

Wait a second...has the blog editor been changed with the idea being that the formatting be done in Word or something and then pasted in? Have I been using it wrong these last few posts?

Two more reasons not to preorder: the game might appear in stores before release day (Hello, Xenoblade Chronicles X for 60EUR at my local mall) or the mail workers may be on strike (well, they were until Monday).

Hey, US Pokemon fans! Apparently if you just rename your SSID to Mcdonalds Free Wifi, you don't even need to go anywhere to get your Hoopas. Seems like they could've just made this one a normal download.

Last night, for one reason or another I watched the endings of bloodborne via vaatividya, and in so doing made myself sad that I will never get to play it. Still cool that they seem to have really nailed that lovecraftian exestential horror and despair.
