Ell and Corey are super excited for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2!!!! The best of New York and Tennessee bring you some double Tony Hawk fun When Worlds Collide! Bring the Noise as Koosh blasts some bunnies!  Elroy shows that he's a Superman, shows off his guns, and then tells you how he completed Outcast! Hey look! I'm shoehorning in more song titles from the Tony Hawk soundtrack! Guerrilla Radio! See? I just did it again!

The community discussion deals with an interesting topic. What games have we had installed on our hard drives forever and haven't started, and why? We announce our contest winners as well. Enjoy a jam packed episode of Achievement Hunting 101!

This week's panel - Big Ell, KooshMoose, rawkerdude5012, Vulgar Latin

Is that a bird? A plane? No, that's just Devin playing a game with several AH101 community wingmen. Ell won't have to worry about making his living as a singer if he keeps getting away with cheating his RTDL achievements. Nate turns and burns a new game after wrapping up some loose ends. Corey finds a target rich environment but has lost that loving feeling for some of the grindier achievements.

It's time for Achievement Hunting 101 to buzz the tower!

Level 109 - Don’t Starve: Believin’

This week's panel - Big Ell, KooshMoose, FuFuCuddilyPoof, Vulgar Latin

When You Love a Woman, you play video games with her. Fufu played a game with his wife; hopefully they didn't go their Separate Ways afterward. Send Her My Love. We welcome Vulgar Latin back with Open Arms. He "played" Don't Starve: Giant Edition. Big Ell yelled at Vulgar, then clouds, then Potata: Fairy Flower, and then Vulgar again. Hilarity ensued. Kooshmoose went on a Journey with New Super Lucky's Tale, which Faithfully recreated Super Lucky's Tale...just with a better camera.

Only the Young had the OG Xbox as their first console. Our community question asks the panel which games would work well on an Xbox mini and which achievements they would add as well.

Any Way You Want It, it's Achievement Hunting 101!

Level 108 - Gamers Done Quickly

This week's panel - Big Ell, FuFuCuddilyPoof, KooshMoose, & rawkerdude5012

It's Games Done Quickly 2020 week and the panel rushes through their games showcase to answer a pair of community questions. Good guy FuFu goes out of his way to retread an old favorite in order to help out friends. Rawker strolls his way to another 1k and then takes a break not earning real cheevos. Ell cleans out some of the 360 backlog and tells tall tales about that one time he almost won the King of the Red Ring. Koosh finishes up a free weekend failure and everything goes downhill when he starts a new grind.

Waka reviews Guard Duty, a quick point and click from Ratalaika.  (1:28:09)

This week's panel - Big Ell, KooshMoose, FuFuCuddilyPoof, pTartTX, & rawkerdude 

Corey unleashes his inner Sk8er Boi as he tackles Skater XL, Koosh tackles the Trials of St. Lucia from Dante's Inferno and finds them Complicated, Kenny offers a Backwards Compatability PSA (but he doesn't like your Girlfriend), and Big Ell travels back to 2005 to finish Hardwood Backgammon (My Happy Ending). We say "What the Hell!" and discuss a fantastic community question involving console exclusivity!

Level 106 - Carrion My Wayward Son

This week's panel - Big Ell, FuFuDaddilyPoof, KooshMoose, & rawkerdude5012

Kenny rises above the panel's noise and confusion to share some news with the community but tries to remain Grounded with the latest game to hit the Xbox game preview program. Awaiting a new purchase, Corey's gamer score soars ever higher with a quick completion tour in one of the latest games to come to game pass. Nate masquerades as a man with a reason, but really, he's just happy to talk about his event of the season - a completed stack in game pass. Surely Ell has never claimed to be a wise man, but even he sees the benefit of playing games with friends to get achievements. Apparently that involves forcing Proulx to pick up after him. Sealing the deal on this panel is Ell talking about a game that plays like a stormy sea of moving emotion.

We're fortunate that Bean Divers Unanonymous returns so you can hear the voices say all about their experiences.(1:45:09)

Nothing equals the splendor of a Chewie's Competition Challenge update.(2:20:12)

Just one segment left, Trivia Battle Royale, and then you can lay your weary head to rest. (2:29:36)

Level 104 - The King of Poppin’ Cheevos

We're back to entertain "One Day in Your Life" and while Fufu takes a week off to "Ease on Down the Road", Elroy steps in and asks the panel to "Remember the Time" they played games this past week.

Ell "Say Say Say"'s the many games he's been playing. Corey talks about how he "Wanna Be Startin' Something'" new in a veiner speed-run. Nate tries to "Jam" a stack of GamePass games while Elroy talks about the game that elevated him to the #1 spot in Cycling Games in TN and how he "Beat It." The panel then handles the "Off the Wall" topic of "Why" DLC and what makes it "Bad" or a "Thriller." Be sure to listen and "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough."

Level 103 - Devolving Forward

This week's panel - Big Ell, KooshMoose, rawkerdude, & Vulgar Latin

We take a look at the recent Devolver Digital conference, where Carrion was announced to be coming very soon to Xbox Game Pass! Ubisoft Forward gave us a peak at some AAA games on the horizon, such as Far Cry 6, Watch Dogs Legion, and Assassin's Creed Valhalla! Which games are we excited for?

Vulgar (who is decidedly Un-PC) played some PC Building Simulator. Ell spent a lot of time crawling in dungeons in a game that apparently isn't a dungeon crawler! Nate is still trying to determine what Sally's Law is! Rawker has been busy, not only completing ManEater but reviewing it too! Check out the awesome video review below!
