When the internet shrunk our world, it became easier for everyone to compare their own lives against those of their peers and, invariably, feel meloncholy about what they've become and eat a bunch of ice cream. But there are those who rise above this sort of thing, and they are called gamers, or more accurrately, ---+==G4/\/\RZ==+-----. We're looking at True Achievements, a site that assigned each man a number, and then quickly went back to playing Halo again. This week, Mario Lopez steals your girl.

Hey everyone! This is the episode that Lemon kidnapped, so the doc pretty much looks like shit. Blame him, not me. We had many interesting conversations about cheevos and when I showed Lemon Bboy360 it was love at first sight. Excellent work on the puns in this one. "Not the cheevs!" was a stroke of genius.

I wish Steam Achievements gave some sort of fictional points too. Mostly so that the Xbox fanboys can argue endlessly with PC fanboys about which platform's cheevos are worth more.

Also, Steam has some games with literally impossible achievements, and I'd like to see idiots breaking their heads trying to get all 1297 achievements on ToME.

I've just listened to the episode and I already want another fix of cheevos. Listening to people claiming that their time-waste points are like pheromones to the chicks is kind of amazing.

There is! It's called Steam Levels. You get XP and upgrade your Steam level by completing trading card sets! And you get emoticons as rewards!!!

Also you can sell the individual trading cards for eight cents a pop, perfect for building up towards some extremely small game purchase during one of the sales.

EDIT: There are also Foil cards, which are rare and sell for one to five dollars. I was able to wrangle six bucks out of some poor sucker on the market due to the card being extremely rare (read: I was the only seller). There is absolutely no benefit to Foil cards except they are really good at deflecting the negs from other Steam card enthusiasts at the gamer bar.

How did I forget? I've gotten like four bucks from this dumb thing already. Who would even want a Rome: Total War emoticon anyways? I wish I got a foil card, I like getting money for doing nothing.

Edit: Are there actually any cool emoticons/badges?

A Meat, March 14, 2014, 11:51:51 am

Emoticons are never cool. Except for the animated cat on the keyboard I can make in Skype, but other than that they are not worth it.

I don't think there are any cool badges, but the developers and Valve do get an extra cent or two every time an item is bought/sold from the market. I have no hard and fast rules for badges other than I get ones for games I like with the eighty cents I've made from selling the cards I don't want. Then I use the fifty cents or so I have remaining to buy 1/4th of a shot of gamer whiskey.

Okay, so there is one cool emote.

EDIT: I checked, and the price of that emote on the Steam Workshop is about twice of the price of the actual game that it comes from. Capitalism!

I like how the cheevos movie is very adamant about one thing: The girl WILL go after the guy who accomplishes the silliest nerd thing. She's attracted to gamerscore, and the plucky young hero's best shot is to MAKE UP FOR THE GAMERSCORE... through breakdance.

This is how women act, you guys.

Also I want to point out that I know folks who are the absolute best at video games* and I have never heard the term "cheevos" before this episode. What in the fresh hell???

* Other than you, Bunnybread.

It's funny because recently I've been thinking about soloing Borderlands 2 on Ultimate Vault Hunter mode so I've been doing some farming for Legendaries. To help myself I decided to check the Gearbox Forums for advice on how best to farm and was awestruck by the posts I saw of people talking about farming this game for items for eight hours a day. I was just like "Who the fuck does that?"

...Now I know

Because of soccer  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C.D._Guadalajara)I know that chivas means "goat" in Spanish...  that's what my mind fills in when I hear "cheevos".

I like how BBoy has a forum on his website. I especially like how there are other people trash talking him (http://bboy360.com/messages/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=113) on it.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'd totally fuck both guys if they competed for my attention by getting out out their systems and declaring "first one to x points wins the girl".

And by fuck I mean I'd take their wallets, tie their shoelaces together, and slip out the back while they were distracted by video games.

Well really it's no different than two dudes actually, physically fighting over a girl.

Woman Law states that, if two men are in direct and overt competition over you, whether that entails gamerscore dick-measuring or actual blows exchanged, you are obligated to engage in sexual intercourse with the winner. Men know this, which is why it happens.

What if the two men are fighting over a girl who's actually a man pretending to be a girl for free shit?

Do they have to have sex with the man?

What if the girl is actually a dog?

It all comes down to the Cheevos. The party with the lowest Gamer Score is required to have sex with the party with the higher gamer score regardless of gender, sex or species.

By the way, Lemon, can you change the score under each person's post count to say cheevos instead of score?
