Achievement of the Catchup


Posted: 23 Sep, 2015 15:05
It was my birthday Tuesday so this week my gift to you is if you have not done a previous Aotw for the year you can this week. Post 2 will have all the aotws you can do

A new achievement will be chosen each week as "Achievement of the Week."

Some will be set for obscure and underplayed games; while in other weeks, the challenge will be the hardest goal in that game's entire achievement set. If you can get the achievement:
You win 1 point towards the "Just For Fun" leaderboard, 2 points for earning it on hardcore mode!
(Note: You must earn it in the current week to get the point)

Scott: "Can I add - if you already have this achievement and want to enter the competition, please visit your settings page ( and remove the achievement from your account first. You will find the option to remove individual achievements from your account under "reset game progress", first pick the game, then the achievement. This will allow you to re-earn the achievement this week! Good luck all!"

I Can Track Timestamps for When You Earned Things, so I'm not awarding points that were unlocked way before or way after

This Week's Achievement: See post 2

Considering I've only been a member since August, I should be getting a good amount of these...

Posted: 23 Sep, 2015 15:58
For the Demo World cheev, which one was that? The description here applies to two or three different challenges...

Posted: 23 Sep, 2015 21:11
sorry about that

Posted: 24 Sep, 2015 17:43
Got it! Should be up to 14 points now... though I should probably try for the AOTM...

Might as well have called this week's achievement, "Yo Kappa, you around?"

Posted: 01 Oct, 2015 01:56
I wasn't too hopeful for my chances on this Mega Man challenge, but I tried anyway... imagine my surprise when I not only beat it, but beat it easily! Half of the Robot Masters never landed a hit on me, and NONE of Wily's Castle bosses hurt me at all when I beat them!

Posted: 01 Oct, 2015 18:04
I beat the Mega Man 1 Wily challenge as well just now.

Posted: 11 Oct, 2015 17:40
I got the achievement for this week's tournament.
Although I've been seeing this "weekly" achievement for 2-3 weeks now.
