During their interview with Cliffy B, the guys over at CVG
learned an interesting Gears of War 2
achievement fact that will probably make "achievement whores" a bit furious. Scratch that, it will
make achievement whores furious.
As it's currently planned, Epic will be "throttling" GoW2
's achievements by limiting how much unlocking progress can be made per game or round. Cliffy gave an example of the unlocking system by saying that "if you're going for headshots, you get one headshot that counts and any other headshots won't count towards your Achievement" which is being done "so players don't just play to get headshots the entire round just to get Achievements." It's an interesting idea, but one we aren't sure we (or any achievement addicts for that matter) fully embrace.
