AWSOME Site - Trueachievements

   0
Hey guys, I wanted to show you all this really cool site I'm part of. True Achievements



Have you noticed that some Achievement scores are a bit... unfair

the 5 points for pressing the Start button in The Simpsons Game are worth exactly the same as the 5 points for completing 10 side missions in Just Cause

Or how about this?

the 1000 points for achieving a hit counter of 50 in Avatar: The Burning Earth (which takes about 5 minutes) are worth the same as the 1000 points for completing the whole of Guitar Hero III , including The Inhuman Achievement

Over at TrueAchievement's my Gamerscore of 16,948 is ACTUALLY 23,037. How did it jump up 6,089 points? With alot of maths. What they do is this.

"We've decided that an achievement's difficulty can be accurately approximated by using a formula based on how many people have that achievement compared to how many people own the game. We also understand the phrase 'accurately approximated' is a contradiction in terms but are refusing to remove it on the grounds that it sounds impressive.

From there we multiply the original points given to the achievement by our difficulty score and end up with the TrueAchievement score for that, for want of a better word, achievement."


So check it out guy's I'm sure every one here at DTOID will love it, the site hit 20,000 members. Be sure to add me as a friend too as Bleakdestiny

About skull13666one of us since 7:15 AM on 03.31.2008

Well I'm the host of "ComicTube", a Podcast dealing in reviews and news of comicbook, video games, and fantasy movies and TV series'. If you'd like to give us a listen ill a link below, we need some Itunes reviews and could always use some more forum activity. I'm really into the AMV craze, it's a really good way to get my visions across since I'm a Film Student anyway, right now I have ALMOST 200 videos on YouTube. I would gladly make one for anyone here on Destructoid if you all have a suggestions. I'm really into comics and anime, my favorite comic by FAR is the X-Men. There is just SO much diversity in all the titles of it's long run. Currently not watching too much anime, just Bleach, I can't stand to read the dubs cause I get sleepy so I am really waiting on Gurren Laggen to come to America.
To para-phrase "The Boondock Saint's"
"EAT SLEEP WORK GAME These are principals which every man of every faith can embrace."
