Yep. It’s a fart joke. I felt like Monday’s strip was a bit heavy and wanted to lighten things up with some good, old-fashioned low-brow humor. And since I want to keep this relatively family-friendly, I went with flatulence. Alright, moving on.
I’m still looking for suggestions for strip ideas during my boss’ vacation next month. Send me ideas through e-mail, Facebook or Twitter.
Monday night I unlocked the final two achievements I was missing on Borderlands. I’m sure I could have gotten them a long time ago, but my friends and I have been playing other things lately. After we finished and two of our party left, one of my friends and I began looking through their achievements to see what they were missing on the game.
It became clear very quickly that we needed to help them get their achievements. There is absolutely no reason it is necessary, but we both felt called to the mission. He and I share the same passion for unlocking achievements. We also feel about 75% as satisfied when we help someone else unlock and achievement.
The idea then began to roll around in my head of achievement coaching. A service that lets us help you get achievements. I seriously doubt anyone actually would pay for help getting achievements (at least not in a way that wouldn’t violate XBox’s TOS), but it’s a fun thought.
Anyway, if you need assistance unlocking achievements, especially on co-op games. I think I know of some guys that can help.
This leads me into another thought. As a person who does not have a PS3, can anyone explain to me the point of trophies? Can other people see what trophies you have unlocked? Is there a way to see if you have more platinum/gold/whatever trophies than your friends? It just seems to me that the feeling of accomplishment isn’t as high when you don’t see a cumulative total like with the 360’s gamerscore. Maybe I’m wrong. Let me know your thoughts.
