Just a handful of early examples which combined have already wasted 10+ hours of my time:1) RPS Badge - winning 5x in a row - completely luck based and the only real strat you have here is to spam fast-forward on your emulator to make the potentially endless pain reduced by half.2) Running thru the sand cruiser in under 30 sec - i just love how this one is preceeded by a massive cutscene for each attempt you want to make (unless you go out of your way to disable hardcore mode, then create save states, then practice over and over this way)3) Battle Calamity with only your starting gear equipment and win - I saw some guy comment on this one that he finally got it after 33 tries, and again it could be much worse as it's totally up to luck. At the time of writing this I've attempted 20+ times and I'll probably get this one just out of pure spite but it's going to take like 1-2 hours dedicated each day to get me good and pissed off at the start of my day until I finally luck out.

1) Agree. If its any consolation, RPS is by far the most frustrating of the 3 badges. You'll have no trouble with the other 2 in the set ('hide and seek' and 'chicken walk').2) I could only do this one with a lot of practice, and the other speed / platforming challenges are either equally or more difficult (for me, anyway). I gave up on one so far and I'd probably recommend skipping these if you're not prepared to fail many times before succeeding. A heads-up that long cut-scenes preceding the challenges happens a lot, ('creeping through the sewers' is particularly bad for that), but with fastforward its bearable.3) I'll post some suggestions under 'Tale of a Cruel World', but yes I'd say there's more luck involved with that particular one than the other disk 1 battle challenges.

Great set. Is there any chance to add achievements for Xenogears 2.0 hack?
Aeliana 7 Apr 2023 15:02
One of my favorite games of all-time but NGL this list gives me anxiety. Only 7 masteries since November 2020. Feels like a lot of these cheevos would be more appropriate for a subset titled "Wild and Wacky Feats in Xenogears."
HeroRobb 9 Apr 2023 19:43
I agree. I started a playthrough with the intention of mastering and gave up on the mastery literally at the rock paper scissors badge. Almost to disc 2 now.

For me, the self-restricted boss challenges strike me as brutal, the platforming challenges ie. Babel Tower in < 48 jumps as borderline sadistic, and hunting down whatever is required to "change screens without moving the d-pad" is just... weird, and doesn't sound like very much fun to me personally. I mean no offense to the original developer, but I do think this game is in need of an overhaul/revision.

Unfortunately the coder for these Xenogears achievements was weirdly aggressive and refused any criticism about the achievements being poorly designed or in many cases outright broken. And then they got banned from the site entirely. So who knows if or when anyone else ever takes over and does anything with them.

This set is absolutely awful and crushed any fun I had. Even obtaining them was just empty, lifeless luck. The only ones that feel fine are the collectibles and the boss challenges. Every other minigame/time sensitive relative one was maddening and sucked all of the joy in any experience I wanted to have with this game, which is nearly every single one. Sorely needs redoing.

Is there some sort of mechanism via which people can respectfully nominate a set for overhaul/revision? This is the one and only set I've come across on RA that kinda bugs me, and I'm relieved to hear I'm not the only one.

Yeah and if there isn't, being able to use one of your set requests as a revision request would be cool.

FF8 got a lot of controversy - rightfully so - but this set is a lot worse than what 8's was tbh..

Someone said it best when they suggested to add most of these to a subset category. Anyone know of a way/where to request this? We could all head to a specific topic or forum or submit some kind of ticket?

I would also like to see a revision; as is, I really don't want to play this.

Oh wow, I intended to drop the 2.0 for the Cheevos but I’m definitely not even trying that, lol.

I absolutely love this game to the point I've played this all the way through at least 40 times since it came out. That being said these achievements ŵere horrifying to attain. The amount of save scumming and fast forwarding through scenes was ludicrous. I can understand the minigame ones since you dont have to go through tons of scenes for them but a majority of these require you to have intimate knowledge of the game. I agree that alot of these should be put into a subset.

If you are playing this for the first time(or havent picked it up in awhile) please don't go for these achievements and just enjoy the game and story.

All that said, if anyone needs help with any of the achievements just message me.

One of my favourite games of all time, but this set is definitely a no go. Could we have a revision?

I was about to replay the game since i saw it has cheevos, but what the fuck is this set,so crazy, i definetly end up hating the game if i try to master this, hope it gets some kind of a revision

After having mastered this, I can say that most of the achievements are definately worse on paper than they are in practice... except for the mini games. And some of the eclectic ones like "Secret Agent Man"

I"m finally free! Secret Agent Man and all of the minigames were indeed painful.

I've noticed a few mentions of the 2.0 version not working with achievements, but I've been playing an undubbed version (unsure if it's 2.0 or something else) that works fine with the achievements.
