I've had my xbox for around 3 years now and nothing as ever gone wrong with my account, but in the last couple months my xbox account as started screwing up with achievements. Around 2-3 months ago i was playing 'Dragon age: origins' and i got real into it. i bought all the DLC's and had multiple playthroughs. On my first playthrough of the DLC 'Dragon age: Awakining' i made it through without a hitch, that was until i got to that last boss after i killed the brood mother the cut scene and the rolling credits came up no achievement poped up. So i'm like okay maybe i did somthing worng, so i played through the DLC again, i did choosed differant choices, and took different paths, and killed the brood mother again. still no achievement.
At this point i'm P-O'ed, i called Xbox support, Talked to the guy for like an hour or so, he asks if the game is a DLC or a disk, I explain, he says to clear my catche on my hardrive and reset my xbox. but still nothing happend, it was a school night and i got tird of not getting anywere with it so i hung up (after he said he didn't know what to do.) Within the next couple days i called back. the guy went through the same steps and submits it to the Xbox specialty team. after a couple days pass i get an email saying that they didnt see the DLC on my account (eventhough i have 90% of the achievements for awakening, have payed for all the DLC's, and 80% for the rest of the DLC's and game).
So after that i'm like oh well I'm not getting anywere with this. so a couple months pass, and everything is going normal besides a little rageing and some FPS games. After a couple monts of rageing at some online shooters i decided to take a break and achievement hunt again, So i bought Homefront, got all of the single player achievements and was working on the multiplayer ones. At this point i'm like i will get this in time i need more achievements, i go to my local library every now and then and they rent out games, so i take a look at them and i see 3 games i like, (mafia 2, fable 3, and red faction) but i decide i should only get one so i pick mafia 2.
This is where my second problem lies, i beat the game doing all the oblectives and watching all the cutscenes. I beat the game and i have like 450 total achievement points for the game. So, me being me, i go and look through the achievements and find easy ones, like get 5 headshots, reach 125 mph, and others like that. But there are some achievements on that game that require you to collect some objects like most games nowadays. There are 2, 1 is to collect 50 playboy magizines, and the other is to collect all 150 wanted posters, So me being a man totally chooses the magazines over the posters. so after school (i'm finishing up my senior year) i come home get on youtube and look up the locations on where these magazine locations are. I'm kind of a cheater :). so it takes me 2 and a half days to collect all 50 from 15 chapters.
So tonight i was finishing up my magazines and i got to the last one, i rushed the magazine spot before i could get shot at. I graped it about 5 seconds after grabing it i died, I'm like "at least i got it!" but wait there was no achievement. I'm not the kind of person that blames a game at first so, i look into this, i make sure i have all the magazines, (there is a window that tells you if you do or not) and it said i have 50/50 playboy magazines. I remember the dragon age achievement thing and i'm like i'll kill 2 birds with 1 stone and see what xbox support can do this time. i call in the first time. It takes forever for the person to answer, they transfer me to xbox live support. I give her my details to verify my account. and shes like there is some wrong with the details, after argueing with her about it. i hang up and call back.
A different dude answers i give him my info and he can get it right. so i dont know what the other lady was talking about. anyway i tell the guy about my problem and he directs me here. So now i guess its up to you guys. i seriously need help i dont want this to keep happening. sorry about the book but i wanted to be thorough. so if there is any help or advice someone can give me it would be appreciated very much.
