You're able to get the hardest achievements in the game in 3 seconds on the PC because you can cheat.

Oh I understand, It's not a huge deal. 80+ hours is enough to sink into that game for now.

I also just realized that it's worth pointing out that I'm now playing Fallout 3 on the Xbox 360, not on PC (since my little gamercard makes no distinction). I'm sure you can check Xbox.com if you really think that I'm that nefarious.

I'll throw my hat into the ring. My game budget's in a bit of a squeeze right now, but who knows, I might somehow pull something out of my ass.

Added you to the OP. If you really don't have anything to play you can get a gamefly account for free for a couple weeks.

Played Stranglehold for an hour and a half last night and didn't finish a single level or get a single chieve. That game is tight like a virgin on prom night.

My friend played through it and ended with 490. I just wanna finish it to get it off my backlog. I may have enlisted a buddy to boost some of the situational multiplayer kills though. I bet those chieves are pretty rare since literally no one plays that game online.

The game itself is fun enough it's just janky as shit. Controls feel too loose and the camera sucks, especially in close quarters fights.

I'll give this a go as well.

Hopefully it will give me an excuse to play some of my games I've had sitting around for nearly a year.

I'll give it a shot. Anything to motivate me to work on my backlog. Although the game of LIFE is still probably going to take most of my time.

I was looking through the achievement list for it and a good deal of them are online. I'll try some multiplayer with you, too, once I get to it. I finished ODST today and now I want to finish Dragon Age.

Added another prize to the OP.

Geekbox has to have one of the best communities on the internet. I never expected so many people to offer up prizes.

Ahaha, friend and I loaded up Stranglehold to try and get some mp chieves. There are two kinds of mp chieves in Stranglehold: Completely tedious awful ones, and LOL wut easy ones. So after 10 minutes of trying to figure out how to do the easy ones, I do some investigating. Turns out they were all added in a DLC map pack! I'm thinking, why the hell would anybody purchase a MAP PACK for the multiplayer in STRANGLEHOLD!? And then I wonder, hey, since it's such a janky ass game, maybe they just gave it away for free to try and get people playing. I go to xbox.com to investigate. Nope, that shit is FIFTEEN FUCKING DOLLARS! I told my friend that over XBL and we both literally sat there laughing for the better part of a full minute! We then ejected the game.
