Weird 360 problem: My 360 no longer tells me I have an achievement.

    This started with Mass Effect. I was finishing up the game and I knew at some point I should get a bunch of achievements in a row.
    Never happened.
    I was kind of pissed.

    Then I checked my achievements. I had gotten them, but I had never gotten the green bar and the beep.

    I have been playing some games over the last couple of nights and rocking up achievements, once again no beep, no green message. But they show up in my profile.

    WTF?!?!?!

    Anyone ever heard of such a thing?

    Don't know for sure, but are there some settings in the xbox where you can turn achievement notifications back on?

    Be glad it didn't show your achievements. That very slight amount of extra processing power it would have taken to display the notification probably would have sent your 360 into RROD mode.

    did you turn off the setting to show if your friends are signing off/on? I did that and i don't get notified of achievements anymore either

    maybe it's mass effect itself

    i beat the game pretty much using only wrex and garrus (as soon as i got them, since im a soldier)

    and i didn't get any of the teammate achievements. not a single one. wtf.

    edit: at least you got them :mad:

    You need to do most of the side missions also, not just rush through the story.

    I looked for such a creature. Couldn't find it.
    Where is such a setting?

    I will try that, but last night I spent quite some time looking for it. If it works I will let you guys know and offer up praise to Ososlow.

    I didn't actually try getting an achievement, but it went from being able to see live friends log in to not being able to. If the box is ticked, then I guess it is just the game :dunno: I recall not getting notifs on a few in ME. I was surprised to find that I unlocked a few that I had no idea existed :mamoru:
