XBOX 360 Weekender (2) Day 2

Day 2 of the Weekender and I began at 9.45am on Red Dead Redemption but despite spending four hours playing with 10 minute breaks every hour, not a single achievement popped meaning the game will take a lot of effort to gain a reward.

Wet in the VetteShare the DreamAt 2.30, I moved on to Need For Speed Hot Pursuit and scored a nice haul of eight unlocks for a total of 170G which began with Share The Dream (10G) for sharing a Dreamshot to the Wall and was soon followed by Wet in the Vette (25G) for driving a Corvette in the wet.
