The mysterious New Achievement!

#1

Post by Antisocial » Fri May 03, 2013 11:18 pm

We've ignored it for quite a while, but it's high time someone asked.

The New Achievement! achievement... What does it mean?

Apparently we all have it, so we must've done something to trigger it. Its broken icon only adds to its enigmatic nature...

What exactly have we achieved? I'm going to assume enlightenment. And the broken icon symbolizes the subjective nature of enlightenment.

I asked the same question myself.
Now I know there's a reason you shouldn't blame others when you do something wrong, and that reason is: you might get caught and have to apologize to a bunch of dumb peasants.

It's a new achievement achievement, duh. You achieve it once you've achieved at least one achievement.

No, it's the broken achievement achievement.

The image is broken for everyone else, right?

It's the achievement for gaining achievements, which help gain achievements.

Yo dawg, I heard you like achievements, so we put an achievement in yo achievements so you can achieve while you achieve.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Mystery solved!

Oh... It went away. And it took the other achievements with it.

What a coincidence.

Speaking as someone who doesn't check his profile page...

I have been recently told that the achievements actually haven't gone away. They're just no longer on the sidebar and can be found chillin' in your profile page.

Also, sources say new achievements are coming our way. Be on the lookout.
