Achievement whores: y’all might want to sit down for this one. Everyone else: prepare for the funniest news ever.
According to Team Meat’s Twitter, The Steam version of Super Meat Boy (set for release the last week of this month) is going to feature over 30 achievements, many of them ones that “were rejected by MS for their difficulty.” Considering the difficulty of some of the ones that did make it in to the Xbox Live Arcade version, the prospect of newer, harder ones is utterly terrifying.
What could they even be? Beat the game without dying? Or, worse, beat the game using only Gish? If I think about this any longer, I actually might start crying.
At any rate, it looks like Jeff Gerstmann was at least slightly wrong when he claimed that Microsoft doesn’t really give a damn about achievements. They might not care if they’re too easy, but at least they care if they’re too hard.
