General Discussion: Halo CE Achievements
« on: October 15, 2011, 03:39:01 »
Welcome to the SGP research topic for Halo CE Anniversary achievements.  Replies to this thread should

a)  ONLY regard Halo CE: Achievements
b)  NOT be about a specific achievement.  For that, find the existing topic for the achievement.  Check the "Index" topic for help.

Here is a perfect example of the kind of post that belongs in this thread:


On October 14, 2011, The Halo Waypoint website released the list of achievements in Halo CE Anniversary:
http://halo.xbox.com/en-us/news/headline/halo-combat-evolved-anniversary-achievements/285109

When the game releases, we'll have to check the Waypoint app on XBL to see which of these achievements unlock items in-game.  I don't believe Bungie ever used a secret achievement in any of their games, but since this wasn't done by Bungie, make sure any achievements you get are on this list!

The Index here in "Achievements" board reads

Not all achievement may warrant research/discussion.

So what you are implying is that we should not make an independent thread for every single achievement? I can see that it would flood the place a bit, but should'nt we still do it, IF some discussion would arise, and for the sake of collecting information? Or did I misunderstand you there?

I was thinking of achievements such as "Pillar of Autumn", which reads:

For all level completion achievements such as this one, we really may not have a lot to talk about.

I wanted to provide a way for us to "roadmap" the elements of the game which could be researched, and quickly get to those elements without sorting through many different areas of the forum.  The indexes also show us "what is left to be done", so members looking to help out with something know what is still left to research.

So no, I don't have a problem with threads existing for every one.  Just make sure you save some energy for the really big things we need to work on!
