Gaming Challenges for 2011
First, there’s that one achievement I’ve always meant to go back to but never quite managed to muster the enthusiasm to return to the game:
Targets two and three are a little sadistic, I’ve played DMC4 on and off since release and have S ranked half a dozen missions so there’s still a lot of effort to go into this game:
Dead Rising was one of my favourite games, but I stopped playing it years ago with less than half the achievements in the bag. It’s about time I returned to Willamette.
Mirror’s Edge was a slow burner for me, it wasn’t until I got started with the speed runs that I began to truly appreciate the level design, however I got burnt out and never came back to finish the game. 2011 is the year I master Faith’s free running:
There’s plenty of room for masochism in my gaming calendar for 2011, and what could be more masochistic than grinding through 100’000 kills in Gears of War 2? At the start of the year my kill count stands at approx 65’000:
Rainbow Six Vegas was one of the rare games I actually enjoyed playing online when I first owned the game, over the years I’ve made numerous half-arsed attempted to get to Elite. This year it’s time for a fully-arsed attempt!
All my goals so far have been single player, with this goal: completing Perfect Dark Zero half the battle will be finding a competant co-op partner to run through the game with, twice:
In theory myself and the wife should be able to survive through the setlist on Expert with me on Bass, although I’ve never played the songs on Bass before, let alone on expert. There’s certainly no chance I’d make it through on lead guitar, I can’t even complete all songs on Hard on lead!
And finally, a real stretch goal that I have very little chance of obtaining. If I beat all my other objectives for the year I’ll have a serious crack at this one, but the problem is I’m just not that good at rhythm games:
