    Possibly BT uses a different audio codec or is more secure? Clutching at straws I grant you but not sure what else to suggest.

    Yeah I'm a bit puzzled as well tbh, I'm going to have a fiddle about with it all in the morning, it's one of those things that you forget about until you use the app .

    Hit 100.000G just today. It only took a bit more than 15 years.

    First achievement was in Condemned. Pretty sure I didn't even have a Live profile the first time I played through the game. A couple weeks after launch, I made a profile (and bought Geometry Wars while I was at it), and played through the game again specifically for the achievements. Also because we had just replaced the old CRT with a 480p plasma TV and I wanted to see how it looked in widescreen and high(er) resolution.

    I remember having to drag the ethernet cable from the router to the console, across the hallway, whenever I wanted to buy any arcade games. Good times... okay, maybe not so good.

    @Kilters a lot of them. I'm not one to try and hit 1000G in my games, and I usually only go out of my way for achievements if they are easily within reach. That's why it took so long.

    @SnackPlissken

    The Lego expansion is decent but the other one, Fortune Island is excellent. First time Iíve really enjoyed a drift challenge in a game and also has a route that feels like a hill climb.

    Brilliant expansion.

    @Malek86 congrats on the 100,000 gamerscore mate, itís good you just take your time and not get too bothered by the achievements. Friend on my list has 1,400,000 and buys every game going, he got 46,000 gamerscore last month alone.

    I've got a few on my list who play for achievements. If I really like a game and it has reasonable achievements I'll try to unlock them all.

    Can't stand online ones.

    Iím just over 180,000. I used to play crap games just for easy achievements until I played Lost: The Video Game and that was the end of that. What an insufferable game.

    Yeah, I must also admit that my score got boosted by 10.000G during those three weeks when MS was matching your achievements with reward points. I downloaded a bunch of easy Game Pass games and went on a scoring spree.

    Well, I tried to keep it down to at least decent games. And many of the ones I played, I actually liked more than I expected. Edith Finch, for example.

    Cheers Iíll get the expansion then!

    I setup a new account when I got my one s a few years back. My old account had about 10k on but forgot the password to my email...couldnít be bothered to try and rescue it. Think my gamertag was colonbarbarian. Something I found funny when I was a youth innit.

    Think I'm about 2,600 now..big numbers! I've turned off achievements though and only checked from seeing this topic. So much nicer having them. So stupid playing games to hit achievements like I have done in the past.

    Most games I dont care about achievements but some games give some unique challenges that you wouldn't try without having a look. Monster train is the perfect example of one of those games.

    I switched the notifications off ages ago.

    Really annoying having them pop up during cutscenes or stealth and horror games.

    You've gotta love the sound for the rare achievements, makes it feel special even if you know it's all meaningless really.

    Every other achievement in Outriders seems to be rare.

    Ended up getting Metro Exodus with the coupon. Fancy a replay, once the patch hits.

    My Wireless Headset just arrived - got really fluky and had a window open on the MS site when stock came in on Monday - and it's a lovely thing! If it didn't have `XBOX` on one of the cups I'd probably take it out of the house. :)

    Compared to the masses of buttons on my Sony NC cans - and indeed the Gold phones from the PS4 - these dials are a most civilised way to control the things.

    I might squeeze some cheeky Outriders in this afternoon to give them a test drive.

    @Phattso They really are quite lovely. You'll need to fiddle with the eq settings a bit though, they sound terrible out of the box.

    Lego F40. Worth the price alone.

    Excellent. I think the only game of his I have loved was mgs 1. V was one of the most over rated games ever made and all of his stories are utter shit and don't get me started on his female characters, especially the sniper. Admittedly I haven't played death stranding but it looked painful to me.

    From software, now that would be exciting.
