  • Randy:
    • Got a IBM Model M Keyboard - not the buckling spring version
    • GHL - 100 million on Xbox One, 92 million on 360 version. Horrible game… clearly doesn’t recommend this
    • Finished ROBLOX (Didn’t pull a Fream)
    • Kameo: Elements of Power - finished story, 600-700G in 6-8 hours.
    • Killer Instinct - hit Killer rank this week. Season 3 is out 29th March.
    • GRAW (DRINK!)  (Shoutout to McLovinLegend)
  • Brandon:
    • Rayman Legends - got teensies, doing the dailies
    • Guacamelee - finished

  • Thanks to spazpol, Griffey95, Big Ell, Avenged Against, Jellybigfoot, planting42, McLovinLegend, KaibaChaos, angelsk, Is That Hydro, Ms Dudette, JelliedBigfoot
  • We have the Fream; what is the Randy and the Tarragon?
    • The Tarragon (verb) Buy games wantonly
    • The Crandy (verb) Play a garbage game ironically
  • Fream’s Absolutely Wonderfully Awesome and Fantastic Drinking Game: tonight’s drinking words - Awesome, Fantastic, Wonderful, Absolutely
  • GRAW (DRINK!)
  • Recommend one game of all time, one game for the rest of your life?
    • Crandy: Runescape (Overall), Rock Band 3 (Xbox), Driver 3
    • Freamwhole: Destiny, GTA5
  • Longest Episode == Most Downloaded Episode; clearly due to the extra Jo ;) #jk
  • Favourite site wish list items - Regional filtering (Randy); My game collection (Brandon); Multiple ToDo Lists (Brandon - and JO!!!); Leaderboard filtering by Gamerscore/Achievement changes over time (Brandon); TrueAchievement titles (Brandon)
  • I totally did doze off at work today (LOL - Jo) - I do love sleep. Urm, 4 hours a night is not enough Brandon!
  • Earthworm Jim 3D - possibly the worst collectible task in a game (marbles); I prefer it when there’s a story to collect; 20th anniversary of Pokemon

  • PAL Regions  - Europe, Australia and New Zealand

012 - Outside is Overrated

The newest member of the “1 Million Gamerscore” club, RedmptionDenied, the 5th person on the planet to reach that amazing milestone, joins us. He earned it on his stream last night, not without drama of course, and we’ll ask him about his fantastic run at 1 million. We’ll cover the community questions and find out what the future holds.

Hosts:

Tarragon Allen aka "zzUrbanSpaceman" - TrueAchievements - Xbox

Randy aka "Crandy" - TrueAchievements - Xbox

Guest:

Marshall aka “RedmptionDenied” - TrueAchievements - Xbox - Twitch

0:00:00 - Intro

  • Achievement Sponsor: Nifty 50 in F1 2010 - suggested by McLovinLegend
  • Intro RedmptionDenied - Newest Member of the 1 Million GS Club
  • Mug of the week - Sasquatch containing Earl Grey Tea by Stash
  • Pulling a Fream is spreading; the opposite (a Maerf), from alklein92201, is logging in for extra time on ROBLOX for no reason due to missed achievement notifications :)
  • March 1 tweet from @StephenKing - Dark Tower movie
  • Comments turned off on zedtozed.com due to issues (for now)
  • New Leaderboard idea (from Tarragon) - Completion percentage x TA score/ Gamerscore = new stat (I like this! - J)

00:15:00 - RedmptionDenied Interview

  • There was a plan. The “Road to 1 Million”; had 950k at the beginning of the year after GTASC 2015 (Great TA Score Challenge)
    • 2pm start of the stream, with Kinect game Just Dance 2016 - good achievement name, “Complete your Journey
    • Epic boss battle in Pier Solar, harder because he forgot the controls :)
    • Bouncing between 23 games over the course of the stream.
    • End of stream - playing Ori, 75g needed. At least that was the plan - but 40g short on re-checking gamerscore…
    • 25g short after all popped in Ori. Ended up with Alien: Isolation for final 25G.
    • Stats on TA were over 1 million GS - the missing 65g was there; but not registering increase in GS on Xbox (I had this problem with my 100k - J)
    • RedmptionDenied extremely disappointed with technical issues in the stream.
    • With the 1 million the plan was to play difficult games, survival horror is his favourite genre.
    • Lots of positive feedback from viewers and fans.
    • 5th person overall, 2nd in US to hit 1 million gamerscore.
  • Gamertag? Bonus Level in DOOM (most played game). What about the spelling? 15 character limit on Xbox! (sorry Big Ell)
  • Outside is overrated. #obligatorybigellcommentisobligatory
  • Started with Halo 3 on the 360, popping achievements.
  • Winner of GTASC 2015 individual,.
  • Overtook Rand Al Thor earlier this year
  • Still in GTASC 2016.
  • Let’s Cheer - Kinect shame :)
  • Wipe Out games (physically demanding) - shoutout to NBA Kirkland for series completion.
  • MX vs ATV: Untamed (non-Kinect, very difficult)
  • White whale achievement: Boom Boom Rocket - Sore Thumb Award
  • Next obvious goal is 1000 completions.
  • Thanks to Big Ell, McLovinLegend, spazpol, Montana7, JQ1017, MADeyePadEYE, JStryker416, angelsk (me), and Johnny Zarpentine for the questions.

  • What does happen after the tutorial in Avatar? Has anyone actually played the whole game?
  • Reformatting of the gamerscore bootcamp - Twitter Poll
  • The Potentially Endless Bean Dive has passed the 3 year mark! Wow.  MADeyePadEYE, Montana97 and seamonkeypowder are still going strong.
  • People like Jo :) Jo is happy.
  • We want the dream of being able to 100% even if we don’t ever reach it.  However, is this a good reason not to start a game? There is no wrong way to play. We all have scars. But we hate price gouging content - and we don’t want to support those games (e.g: Call of Duty and $15 map packs), especially if we’re going for achievements; however, if you put 100s of hours into it, then it’s worth it for you (Thanks Big El for the discussion point).
  • Re: last week’s video game movie discussion - I like the Mario movie (Jo), controversial, I know - but so bad it’s good :)
  • Sausage weekend….. okay…..
  • Far Cry the Movie
  • Screencheat (or screen peeking) - cool concept for a game (discussion re: Goldeneye, Oddjob was too small)
  • My favourite movie tie-in video game is the LEGO Movie Videogame :) (Jo) - “Everything is awesome” - spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!
  • Quantum Break has gone gold - play it on April 5th (hopefully)
