I normally wouldn't write about something so self-aggrandizing as my personal quest for 1000/1000 gamerscore in Halo 3 (the only other game I have full gamerscore in is Pac-Man: CE), but for so long
I've been getting mocked by Bungie.net users for not completing the lone achievement that eluded me - Overkill. Some samples range from aggressive, to oddly helpful:
"Luke, wtf how can u not have Overkill, you work at Bungie and sukk at Halo and can't get Overkill"
"You do know that if you keep shooting a player after you get a Triple Kill you might unlock that Achievement you're missing, right?"
"Hay, change your language settings and my friends and I will get you Overkill, but can we have Recon?"
I hadn't unlocked an Achievement in Halo 3 since Oct. 31st of last year - thanks to the Halloween playlist for the Steppin' Razor achievement - the drought was long and filled with jokes about how bad I am. That said, on June 2nd, it finally happened in Shishka's glorious reappearance of Legendary Brawl. I was indisposed during the first Legendary Brawl way back when, so I wanted to mess around with it. I'll never forget taking the interior lift to Spartan Laser spawn on Avalanche and what havoc and hell I wrought upon landing. The destruction and my demise was followed up with the sweet, sweet pop-up text: Achievement Unlocked. The clip is in my File Share labeled: "finally,"
if you're into
poetry in motion
really average Halo play.
What was your last achievement in Halo 3? Did you get your achievements legit, or is your Marathon helmet stained with mistruth and treachery?
Did you save the file to keep for all time, like I did?
Tell me about it, Internet.
