If you want to get a steady flow of whoring games without shelling out too much money, I'd recommend renting. I know crak uses LoveFilm, I use Boomerang, and the service is excellent.

I was going to do that, but I bought a blu-ray player at the beginning of the month and have gone back to enjoying a few films, so my scorewhoring has dropped off at the moment. Once I get back in to "the groove" I may very well join Love Film, it does seem silly to shell out for crap games just for the points :)

And before you ask, I don't need to join Love Film for the films, because I have a backlog of about 40 DVDs I haven't watched!!!

This is something I aim for...I like to get as many as cheevos as possible, good old fashioned value for money (even off my rentals!)

Currently at 73%

Just need to play and complete Undertow, Last Remnant to get my average up to +75%

But Luke, do you not find that you're stopping yourself playing new games for fear of your completion % dropping? Like as soon as you start FF13 it will go down again.

I agree on Forza 3 and have decide to put the game to bed for a few months and try for the last achievement at a later date.

And about 57% complete according to True Achievements.

Nah, as Failed said I'll aim for ~800G once I start it...got some leave at the end of the month so I'll finally get time for FF, I'm excited already!
