Visual Studio Achievements; they're not Xbox live right?

    This seemed like an obvious troll to me, basically mocking the entire concept of "achievements" for an IDE using the stereotype of an Xbox gamer manchild, but man - even the websites resolve, although they're pretty bare.  While there are lot of completely self-unaware people in the world, this is so over the top I just can't accept it as anything other than a masterful troll. 

    Or I don't want to.

    So with that presumption in mind...bravo, Dan.  Bravo.

    Cheevos are not a joke. They're a way of life.

    Clearly, to have any windows mobile platform succeed, they need to add cheevos irl.

     

    Your move Microsoft. Your move.

    By reading some of these posts, I find it sad that even many Microsoft developers don't even know what platforms Xbox Live gamerscore/cheevos covers. And I don't blame you. I blame Microsoft for spending 1.5 Billion on advertising flash mobs with only a litte bit of breakdancing instead of educating people on the Xbox Live Ecosystem. It's funny how they have a guy trying to impress a chick with a windows phone in that one commercial and throw in only a little bit of breakdancing for surface, but they can't get it right, cus they didn't hire me (They just read my posts). Give me a 30 second commercial and 1.5 Billion of advertising and I'll have the surface beating the iPad (and maybe I'd use 1/2 the money lower the price). They really just need to fly me into their marketing meetings for 1 day and I'll turn things around.

    Now for those that don't know, xbox cheevos/gamerscore is in Xbox, Xbox Kinect games, Windows Phone, Windows 8 games, PC games and there is 1 game in iOS. Many of you have posted that you want cheevos for doing various things not on a device, well Kinect has the ability to do so and Kinect Labs do have cheevos. This is the future I'm talking about, where you can really get credit(and proof) for Cheevofying a chick. And everyone in the workplace that has windows 8 will now rack up cheevos at work playing solitare. MS needs to change the name from xbox live gamerscore to something like: live-score or life-score. This ecosystem is taking over and everyone is going to have cheevos like it or not. This is why I'm surprised that VS didn't have realy cheevos. (Hopefully in 3 years).

    Now I'm not going to be posting here all the time. I suggest that you follow my twitter, facebook, youtube or myspace page for updates on whats going on (all links found on bboy360.com). I just had the 2012 Cheevies awards last night:

    Maybe next year one of you could win best app promoting cheevos.

    Perhaps we should have some cheevos for Windows itself.

    Checking Windows Update +1

    Searching for files +1

    Playing a video +1

    Plugging in a USB device +1

    Buying a windows store app +1

    Joining a WiFi network +1

    Updating AntiVirus +1

    Like the 'Feature Focus' things they did during the betas.

    It would really encourage sales of Windows 8, perhaps that's what's been missing all along.

    "Cheevofying a chick" - Sounds illegal to me.
