Top 10 Most Crushing Achievements

OXM writes: "The achievements that show you're not just good at games but you have a lot of spare time and you're slightly mental.

Some people complete Call Of Duty 4 on Veteran. Others get all the achievements on Halo 3. Then there are some who venture where no others dare to tread and unnerving love for games that we're too scared to put near our 360, in fear it vomits the red rings of death back at us out of spite. So we presumed the achievements themselves are off-limits.

So witness the Top 10 Achievements Of Woe, those that merge stupidly hard achievements with stupidly annoying games. If ever there were achievements to sort the wheat from the chaff, then these are those achievements. No cheating, glitch, guide-assisting or boosting with these horrors. If you have any of these achievements, we both respect and fear you. But mostly? We fear you. We fear you a lot."

I'm just happy to approve a story that I know isn't a stupid April Fool's joke.

Klopek5928d ago

I'd rate the enlightened guitarist achievement as much more difficult than The Inhuman Achievement. Understandably it took ages for me to earn Enlightened but with Inhuman all you really need to do is fluke/learn the intro. The rest of the song isn't anywhere near as hard, especially since you'll have earned starpower by that point.

Final Fantasy XI Online November Update Goes Live

The latest update for Final Fantasy XI Online, the 'November Update', is now live across all platforms where the game is playable.

Kurisu225d ago

Can't believe this game is still getting updates 21 years after it launched. That's crazy! XI remains the only main numbered FF that I haven't played.

MrNinosan225d ago

At the time, it was an amazing game if you had a good Linkshell and/or friend to play with.
A MMOROG that actually required teamplay to be played.

Spenok225d ago

Easily one of the best games ever. As you said, it had the caveat of NEEDING a good group to play with, but I've never had memories/experiences like that in ANY game since.

I've been chasing that experience since I stopped playing it, and the closest I've come to is FFXIV. And even that is still vastly different.

Seraphim225d ago

Played the shit of this 20 years ago. Getting the Serket ring was epic. Idk how many mornings we spent camping before we finally got the pull and I won the roll upon defeat. It was great solo, but you really need a good link/squad for some of the notorious monsters....

MrNinosan225d ago

@Seraphim
I loved those camping hours for every NM of interest.
Leaping Lizzy or what was it's name. Damn, so many days and nights 😅

And first time you got attacked by the Kraken on the boat, omg...

MrNinosan225d ago (Edited 225d ago )

Why tag all those platforms where it ain't playable then?

Spenok225d ago

To get more engagement with his article, and drive clicks. DUH!

(Thanks, I'll go ahead and report that).

YoungKingDoran225d ago

Wish they'd release it for PS4, 5, Xboxes and Switch - it ran on ps2 and still works on potato PCs so should run well everywhere

we need a new sonic pinball, with boss battles / hidden stages / 1 sec load times

Snookies12231d ago

Definitely agreed. I loved Sonic Spinball back on Genesis. I want a new Mean Bean Machine too, while we're at it!

Snookies12231d ago

Still need to check out Frontiers at some point. Just waiting on a really good Steam sale for it.

Games1st230d ago

I didn't realise it was that popular.
