The Chase Down 2-3-2011

Achievement Bounty 2-3-2011 (20) (350GS)
Achievements obtained from Flight Control, The Oregon Trail, DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue, FIFA 08, and NHL 09.

What is the chase down? I started the new year out very slow. So I decided a few weeks back to chase down that lost time. I'm trying to get my completed game total for the year equivalent to the number of days that have passed.  So obviously it is a moving target, almost prey like. To achieve this goal, I'll have to complete at least a game a day and then some to even keep pace. The sooner I meet the moving target, the easier it will be. To complete the case down by the end of February, I would have to complete a total of 59 games. That would be 42 more games in 25 days as of 2-3-2011.

I'm juggling a couple of other things at the moment which is making this even harder. I need to just focus on completing a bunch of games if I want to get it done.

The Chase Down Progress as of 2-3-2011: 17 completed 34 needed (this number goes up one every day form here on out)
Completed Game: Flight Control

  1. Firstly good luck with this challenge. Seems like it could be quite difficult unless loads of avatar esq games come up
    Secondly I was wondering if there was a way to hide the 2011 stats part of each post? As much as i think its a brilliant idea (as lets be honest the amount of games you have played you see what to avoid and what to get) its quite annoying scrolling down it on each post
    Good luck with this challenge though
