WAA - 1 vs 100

This is it...the grant goes out in two days. Prepare for some crazy rambling thoughts on a variety of games next week.

But for now, here's this week's WAA for the free game that's taken Xbox Live by storm - 1 vs 100!

The "One With Combat"Award: "Go Streaking!"
You need to get five correct answers in a row. The way the game is set up, the questions start really easy and get progressively more difficult. So just make sure you're present for the beginning of a round and you shouldn't have much trouble.

The "Mile High Club" Award: "Quick Draw"
Answers are multiple choice in 1 vs 100, and you get bonus points for answering quickly. If you're fast enough, you get an Instant Answer Bonus. But you have to be really fast...essentially so fast that you already knew the answer before the potential choices are shown. For this award, you need to get six Instant Answer Bonuses in one round. So for this one, you'll need a decent knowledge base and good reflexes. If you're having trouble, remember that there are frequent themed rounds, like television, movie quotes, science, etc. Pick a theme that caters to your strengths and you'll improve your chances immensely!

The "Seriously..." Award: "Trivia Fanatic"
Answer 500 don't even have to get them right!

The "Little Rocket Man" Award: "Low Rider"
An interesting twist in this need to instantly answer three questions in a row and get them all WRONG. You'll either need good luck or, ironically, you'll need to know what the correct answers are so you can avoid them!

The Scientist Gone Gamer Award: "Go Streaking!"
Mixed in with a fairly bland set is this lascivious suggestion...

Achievement Set Rating - 3
Well, the game is just answering trivia questions so there aren't really many possibilities. Still, the set is not terribly inspired and leans heavily on just playing the game a lot (500 total questions, 100 correct answers). Plus the icons are generic and lame. Overall, there's nothing egregiously wrong but definitely nothing to get excited about.

Achievement Difficulty Rating - 2
Just keep banging away and you'll get them eventually. I had everything else wrapped up after about 300 questions, so then it was just a matter of mucking through another couple hundred for the last award.
