i'm a self-proclaimed achievement whore, and this sounds like hella fun

tracking down the people with the achievement shouldn't take too long

this had better be more than 5 points though

Krimson6290d ago

I think this will spread faster then they are expecting, to the point that a new player to the game only needs to connect to a game or two to get the achievement.

JPomper6290d ago

Neat. Useless... but neat.

Marty83706290d ago

Less hope it takes M$ out...Ha ha

Noxel6290d ago

Um.. did you even read the article? It's not a bad thing, it's a new and innovative idea for achievements. The achievement will spread like a virus to users.

Hopefully not all PS3 Fans are as stupid as you are.

joemutt6290d ago

I know, they are pretty sad.

shotty6290d ago

You idiot did you read the article. Here's the summary. The game smaller arms (arcade game) has a new type of acheivement. In the begining the 4 guys that created the game will have the acheivment, then everyone that plays them will get the acheivement, then those people that just got the acheivement plays more people who then get the acheivment and so on. It's really creative and I hope more developers think of more creative ways of giving acheivements.

I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

gold_drake17h ago

omg chloe was awful. i really hated her at the end haha

Cacabunga12h ago

Abby was absolute trash protagonist in every way..
Tidus was so meh to me..
On villain side, the one i didn’t like wa Micah, because they wanted him to be that way and it was brilliant👍🏽

Rancegamerx14h ago

I agree, I liked Max, Chloe was a horrible friend and a bad influence.

Cacabunga7h ago

Everyone agrees on chloe, I’m sure even ND do.

H910h ago

Both are horrible, granted Chloe is infinitely worse, it feels like Chloe is just fanservice for people who too over the edge and wasn't written to be a character that makes sense

GooGobbler1d 1h ago

What about that Forspoken Tw*t

MrChow66612h ago

exactly I was expecting it to be a the top of the list

ravens5211h ago

Ye I was expecting her too. Guess they actually played the game. Unlike you and whoever agrees.

Christopher10h ago(Edited 10h ago)

She's actually not bad. It's the writing itself that is bad overall, but she's fine overall. She's no worse than Miles Morales IMHO. Both thrust into a spotlight and receiving both praise and blame and dealing with it.

Forspoken is a bland game because it's 75% bland, boring, repetitive going through the motions and diversions that add nothing of the value with purposefully gated memory moments that don't feel organic or like you're discovering things but waiting for others to reveal things.

ravens528h ago

Exactly Chris. Even though I liked the game. I kno u played it. People who actually played it and went thru her dream saw she was a good likeable person who really just acted out due to being alone and unloved. I think your problem is it was open world, I think if it was more linear you may have liked it better.

savedsynner6h ago

Oh no she's bad. Very unlikable even before you add on the bad dialogue. The game could have been quite good with a good protagonist

Nerdmaster21h ago

Most of these aren't even that bad. Especially comparing to others like Squall "Whatever" Leonhart, Forspoken's Frey, and the guy from Atomic Heart.

-Foxtrot14h ago

Squall is one of the best developed main FF characters so...

People talk about his "whatever" thing thats at the start of the game, not the character he eventually becomes in the end.

Nerdmaster2h ago

No amount of "character development", (especially the ones that for me feels sudden and undeserved like Squall's), will justify him being a d**k to my girl Quistis. Even if he found the cure for cancer, from that moment on, I would never like him.
The article is about being unlikeable, and he was indeed unlikeable for at least half of the game.

BrainSyphoned13h ago

Squall is the best protagonists in FF so you can go whatever yourself.

H910h ago

My good sir, I need to steal that "you can go whatever yourself" because it's gold

BlaqMagiq113h ago

Except Squall has actual character development.

gold_drake11h ago(Edited 11h ago)

the "watever" is only present in the english localisation.
so your argument doesnt rly ... stand imo.
