Well it's finally happened! After hours of relentless bathing suit shopping and volleyball playing, I unlocked an achievement in DOA Xtreme 2. Woo hoo!
When I first bought this game, I assumed that the achievements would be easy ones to unlock...Then I remembered Itagaki made this game and my hopes were dashed. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem working for my achievements. There's nothing like that feeling of, "Yes! I did it!" when that precious little banner flashes along the bottom of the screen. But for me, DOAX2 started to taunt me when I hadn't unlocked a single achievement after playing through multiple vacations as Hitomi (who, by the way, isn't even my favorite character but once I got going with her collection, I didn't want to start over again with someone else). Not to mention that Christie is my partner right now and she's mean...
Anyhoo, I now have an achievement in a game that refused to give me one for playing it non-stop for I don't even know how long. Ironically, if this game had no achievements, I probably would have just played through one or two vacations and then traded it in. Pure genius Microsoft!
*I can't wait to see Jay get 100% completion in this game.
By the way, for anyone currently playing this game, make sure you play it long enough for Zack to give you the "strange volleyball". Wow..
