This is cool! Although I'll unlikely get some of the cavalry ones and the ones that I don't really get through "normal" game play. :D

I think achievements are a dull way of trying to artificially pump some longevity into a game by manipulating the way you play it so I'm glad I didn't buy the steam version. Some people just love collecting junk though so hooray for their new things!

Originally, achievements were designed to give helpful information to the player, hint him towards stuff they might not find out on their own (In HL2, there's an achievement for killing 5 barnacles with an explosive oil drum, which is the most effective way to kill'em // In TF2, as a scout you can get one for capturing 3 points in one life, implying he's good at capturing), though today the console-gaming infected everything with their collectables, as in "Collect 500 orbs", or even grinding "Kill 1000 enemies".

People who don't care can just ignore them, while others can use them to play minigames within the game.

"Lead us from death to victory, from falsehood to truth.
Lead us from despair to hope, from faith to slaughter.
Lead us to His strength and an eternity of war.
Let His wrath fill our hearts.
Death, war, and blood;
in vengeance serve the Emperor and the name of Dorn!"
