Anyone have any GamerScore goals for this year?

Mine is to break the 300K mark

I finally passed 100K a month or two ago, I'd love to get to 150K before the end of the year, but with my schedule, that's probably not realistic.  130K might be reachable.  A pretty modest goal, I know.

I'm falling a bit behind but I think it'd be pretty neat to hit 416,000 on April 16th (my birthday, hence the random number). Otherwise, 450k should be fairly doable. Means I'd have to hit 70k this year which I've done twice before. Otherwise, don't have too may other goals.

 

Would like to setup a Youtube channel to replace Twitch and get back in the swing of that though. Was streaming back in 2015, but moved at the end of the year and where I live now has terrible upload speeds. Figured I could do Youtube and maybe when I move again do some sort of combination of both.

 

Speaking of goals, how'd everyone do last year? Hit 73,954 Gamerscore with 52 completions. Was hoping to hit 75k when I saw I was close but end of December killed me at work and with family. Also had 2,429 total achievements for the year as well.

Have you guys noticed that when the same games are available on both 360 and One, the One version tends to have much higher TA values? I've been playing Borderlands The Pre-Sequel lately-- 2,668 TA on 360; 3,679 on Xbox One. Skyrim is worth 2,339 TA on 360; 3,255 on Xbox One.

 

What's going on here? Just a function of time, the remastered version hasn't been out as long so people haven't had time to finish it yet? Or are there more Xbox One owners who begin games and then stop playing them?

XB1 free play weekends probably contribute to some of it.  The Handsome Collection had a free weekend back in October that probably increased its total gamer base, helping boost the score for late game achievements that can't be earned in a single weekend.  Can't find a free weekend for Skyrim on XB1 (PS4 and PC had one).

 

The values may also be skewed a bit by the DLC.  On the 360, the DLC scores appear to be based on the people that have played the DLC, which is lower than the full game.  On XB1, since the DLCs are integrated into the game, those achievements have the full player base counting toward their ratio, driving up their value until people get to them.

 

It also makes me wonder how MS generates the rarity values for DLC achievements.  It seems like they may be using the entire player base as the denominator for the ratio, rather than just purchasers / players of the DLC.

Ah, good point about the DLC. I was actually thinking the opposite-- on the typical current-gen remaster, the DLC is included with the base purchase so there's no additional barrier to entry, whereas on last-gen some people wouldn't have bought the DLC or were done with the game before it came out. But if the ratios for DLC achievements are calculated from different playerbases, that would more than counteract it.

I'd say more 360 base and also the people have been playing those games longer on that platform as well.

Anyone else been picking up the Neo Geo games that have been releasing for the past couple weeks? Haven't played Sengoku or Art of Fighting yet, but outside of King of Fighters (which has been kicking my ass), they've all been pretty easy 1ks doable in an hour or two tops.

 

Also of note, closing in on 400k gamerscore. Need to see if I can find a way to get even (if only temporarily) to try hitting it on the dot. Couldn't decide what I wanted to hit it with, but thanks to an achievement challenge I'm in, I've decided on a fairly easy albeit fittingly named achievement in Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. Kept putting this one off and saying one day I'd get around to playing it.

 

And while Ubisoft games tend to be wearing out their welcome a bit for me as of late, I'm enjoying it. If only because I can give my enemies the middle finger before punching them to death or sniping them with explosive sniper rounds.

I just started World Heroes for streak maintenance, probably do Metal Slug or Fatal Fury next. I'd been using :360: Game of Thrones for my streak but I'm out of town right now and don't have the 360 with me.

:( I lost my streak yesterday. Unlocked an achievement in Energy Cycle, and I didn't get the notification popup, but that's not exactly uncommon. I checked on the console and it said "Unlocked 4/12" and reflected the gamerscore, so I figured I was good. When I turned on the console again this morning, I got the popup, only now it says "Unlocked 4/13" and it never counted for yesterday. :P

Oh no dude, that's brutal...tough way to lose a streak. I've never been a streaker myself, but I've heard of ppl saving a streak using a Windows Phone and messing with the time. Do you have access to one?

Nice choice of an achievement to do it with! "Hail to the King: Become the ultimate badass."

Love it.

Congrats on the milestone, Jess. I'm always too lazy to try and nail a milestone right to the last digit even when I know I'm close. Nice use of planning on your part.

 

Is that the TA website? I didn't know you could make it black. And what is up with those 6441 unread messages you have going on?

Up until a few thousand points ago, I had no idea what I wanted to hit the milestone with unlike the other big three I had. Had an achievement from Blood Dragon show up in a contest last month and saw it then. From there I figured it'd be too fitting. Funny how my first achievement in the new 100k was "Kill Them All".

It is TA. Sometime last year they added the dark theme. As for the messages, back when I did a bit of boosting, I had any new sessions get sent to my inbox in case I wanted to join a session. Haven't done much boosting in the past few years though.

Nice work, landing directly on it.  I did that at 100K; still a ways off from 200K, but I'll try to do it then, too.

Not sure if we have any Canadians here, but something of interest for you guys:

 

 

Unfortunately only Canadians are eligible, but doesn't mean I'm not thinking of going balls out in October and seeing how much I can score myself.

How's everyone been doing on the gamerscore front? Having my best year ever (by far) with 65,465 through June (previous best was 73,954 in 2016).

Also hit the big 500k last night.🎉

I'm putting way too much time into Stardew Valley. Awesome game but boy is it stingy with the gamerscore.

 

ETA: Actually, I'm at 18,385 for 2018 so far which I feel pretty good about. It's just the past month or so I've been slackin'.
