Just dropped out of Team Fortress 2 to talk about the achievements system a bit.

It's the exact same as XBL. Hopefully this becomes a permanent thing on Steam and not just for games that are cross-platform to the 360.

That is all.

Good idea.  Achievements are crack anyway.  I am pondering replaying Lego SW just so I can collect the achievements on my main username.

Now if Valve wants to be real nasty, they can attach rewards to the achievements. Things like alternate character models, extra emotes, special tags etc. Nothing that tangibly affects gameplay.

People (including myself) would chase that shit with a vengeance.

You need rewards to chase achievements?  I find my mild OCD to be more than sufficient motivation.

No no, I don't think he does. But take Lost Planet as an example. Not only were there achievements but there were, let's call them hidden, goals online wehre you would unlock other skins for your characters.

My god, they could have created a monster out of me in TF2 if that existed. Hell, if it were different bat variations I'd have been fucked.

I wonder if ep2 and Portal will have achievements since the only reason I think the PC TF2 got them was since they were simple to implement and were going into the 360 version anyway.

Nevermind I don't really understand the point of them for the 360. Do you really care what people think of your point totals?

I like odometers.  Achievements scratch the collect-em-all itch, as well.  I am going to play Bioshock again simply because I missed a few on the first run.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

They're ok. I prefer the running stats more than straight up achievements (2/17 on TF2). BFs was cool for that, but unlocks took sooo long I only ever unlocked one damned gun. Maybe it was two. But still. I only play to have fun and try to work to the objectives, so I don't worry about (for instance :P) playing sniper to get those achievements. I mostly play demoman, though I did play heavy when we turtlefested on Mach. I suck at most other classes
