Hello!

In conjunction with the Rebooted Empire Gamertag Table, I'm going to be running a series of spot challenges, games and activities to add a little extra spice to your game playing. This thread will act as the sign up sheet and place for you to post up results for each challenge.

PLEASE NOTE - to make it easy for me to manage, please try and post all comments, banter, baiting and queries in the GT Table Thread here --> http://www.empireonline.com/forum/tm.asp?m=2889536&mpage=1&key=

When you sign up to a challenge, to save 100s of duplicate posts, please edit your original sign up post for results/progress. Entry is restricted to Empire members with over 200 posts.

Just so I'm clear, what happens if you unlock multiple achievements in a game? Do we put down the first one that unlocked or do we get to choose the one with the most gamerscore?

Ha! I'd just done a rules clarification that I posted at the exact same time you asked the question. Scary.

As I've said above, you can choose your cheev, but you're not allowed to change your choice once posted. I think that's fair.

I've got a few more today but I'm biding my time with those as I think there's some larger ones I could get before the weeks out!

I actually thought I'd be able to get alot of cheevos on different games but after reviewing my collection (small I'll have you know) I don't think I can get anymore than 8 in total!

If it was who could get the most in a week I'd be sorted, as I got something like 15 cheevos in 1 day and then another 12 the next. All on the same game though.......boooo!

I knew I shouldn't have cracked open Black Ops for the sake of this challenge. It's fucked me up because I can't stop playing it!

The single player had the complete opposite effect on me. Multiplayer on the other hand was a completely different kettle of fish, only reason I got rid and traded it in for £33 was because christmas made me lose steam in terms of playing it, and never felt compelled after that to go back. Plus I'll be getting Crysis 2 for my online sessions in March.

Just to remind you all that the challenge finishes at 23.59 tomorrow night (3rd February), and you will have until 3.00pm on Friday (4th Feb) to post up your progress. I'm gonna be fairly strict on this, as I want to post up the results for this week by the end of Friday. Plus, you don't want me to win - that wouldn't look good for anyone!

Also, suggestions for future challenges would be appreciated. Got an idea for some, but am happy to listen to suggestions.

I had that epiphany myself yesterday. Up until ol' Ginger Dan posted up his list, I was winning. And it didn't feel right...

That said, I'm only 2 achievements from the lead and haven't touched quite a few of my games - tonight could be very exciting indeed. Unless the Mrs cans any idea I have of firing up the Xbox tonight...

I borrowed some games off a mate, he asked why i wanted to borrow 5 in one go. The only explanation i could give was to win kudos from strangers on the internet...

Sorry dudes, no update until Monday.  Pressing work commitments, I'm afraid.  Monday PM will be the time, plus announcement of the next challenge.
