XBLA Fans’ 12-hour hunt for achievements stream this Saturday

xblatwitter

We posted about this briefly in our Twitch schedule; however, I wanted to update everyone on tomorrow’s stream. We will be hunting down as many Achievements as possible from likely near a dozen different games. Nothing is pre-prepared, so we aren’t going for any kind of world record here. It should be a fun stream highlighting a lot of awesome titles, many of which have very easy Gamerscore.

We also had a bunch of awesome developers send us a ton of giveaway codes for the stream, which we will be giving away throughout the full 12-hour marathon. Just to highlight some of those games which you will for sure see during the stream as well as in giveaways: Roundabout, LA Cops, The Escapists, Dive Kick, and Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers. We also have another half a dozen games we will be running through.

Three examples of great uses for a turbo controller

Three examples of great uses for a turbo controller

By  •  Features

Recently I posted my love for my turbo controller on Twitter and I received a ton of questions asking how a controller can make you a more efficient gamer. Over the years, my Blue Hori Turbo Controller has saved me hundreds if not thousands of hours of gameplay that I simply did not want to be a part of. As of right now, that same controller is no longer available but luckily the Black Hori EX2 controller has made some improvements and replaced my now ancient turbo controller at retail stores. What this controller does that makes it so special is that it allows you to flip a switch that presses certain buttons 13 or 27 times a second for you. So if you are serious about Gamerscore but not into the idea of achievements like “play [X] amount of games” or “play for [X] amount of hours”, then check out a few examples below showing how this magical piece of equipment has bailed me out many terrible games and saved me a fair amount of time while maintaining a high Gamerscore completion percentage.

Goodbye MGC, You Will Be Missed

By  •  News

Today marks a very sad day for the gamerscore community. Jason Young (Morgon) of MyGamerCard.net has officially announced that MGC will be calling it quits. For over 5 years MGC has been one of the most respected and reliable gamerscore sites on the web and it will surely be missed by many.

MGC is a victim of policy change along with a lack of interest from Microsoft in their community development program. Maintaining the site became an uphill battle that resulted in a loss of time and money over the past year. Jason did what he could to keep the site up and running but after constant setbacks, the obvious decision to discontinue the site had to be made. Read More
