Xbox 360 Achievements got you down? Perhaps you’re just not innovative enough to build your own robot to handle the problem for you. Most gamers have stumbled upon that one “bug” in the achievement system – the but that allows developers to waste monumental amounts of gamers time struggling for a cheesy achievement.
One gamer won’t stand for this anymore, one gamer rises above the rest and designs a robot to get him those 60 gamer points in Perfect Dark Zero that seperates the men from the boys: 1000 Death Match and 1000 Dark Ops Games each with a massive 30GP.
Why would someone go through all this trouble? Consider how long it would take to break through these two achievements. 2000 matches of Perfect Dark Zero? First, can people suffer through 10 matches of this game at all? Let us assume, as the robot designer did, that you’re looking at 30 to 40 hours of “game play.”
He built the robot in 10 hours and let it do the hard work for him. Genius!
What did he use for the task?
- Xbox 360 Game Controller
- Erector Set
- Two rotational solenoids
- Electronic components
- A dream
