2012 Achievement Record Tumbles As Dash Ends

At the start of the year, I set various goals to achieve via Xbox including beating the 2012 totals, due to recalculation the TA one was extended meaning that the first to be reached is the achievement total which was 936 last year and today was equalled officially.

The reason I say officially is because even though I have eight extra achievements on Xbox One apps, they don't count towards game totals and are not added on my tracker site ' Trueachievements.com' but will count overall putting me at 4533, with my target set at 4525 for 2013.

For this reason, I have ended the Xbox Dash a week early as there are too many games to try and cram into the time which would have seen some get barely ten minutes playtime if the project continued so until the end of the year, I will play to further my 2013 totals but not on as grand a scale as 10 games a day.
