Hmm well im trying to the the "Gotham TV" achievement but I just cant get it. I have watched atleaste 10 races on Gotham TV and have saved a reply of one of my races, but still cant get the achievement! Maybe I have to save a replay of a race on Gotham TV? But how do I do that? When a race finishes there is just "press A to continue" and no replay button or anything. Im sure its just me being dumb but can anybody help me out please?

Thanks. pop.gif

Before the race starts, a message saying something like, "This is being broadcast on Gotham TV," is displayed. This is your cue to seek that achievement. To get the GTV achievement, you have to place in one of the top three spots in that race.

Edit: Oops, sorry. I was thinking of the Gotham Hero achievement. IPB Image

For the GTV Sports Fan achievement:

Watch ten races on Gotham TV (they do not have to be all the way through) and save a replay of one of your own races.
You wont receive the achievement immediately but next time you login. Also the "Achievment Unlocked" icon won't ever pop up so you'll have to check yourself to see if you've earned it yet.
When I got mine, I remember I just left the thing on GTV and went to do something else since it plays GTV continuously without your input once you get to that screen. I came back to the game after about an hour or so which was probably enough time to have at least ten full races play without interruption. I turned it off, and later when I went to play on Live again, I received the achievement. At some point before that, I had saved a replay of my own.

yeah it's weird... you don't actually have to watch the races all the way through... and it doesn't always give you the achievment right away.

Basically meet the criteria and just go about your business and it will give you the achievment when it feels like it laugh.gif

Definitly go for the style racer achievment. It's not nearly as difficult as it sounds. you can use the guide I wrote for it (it's linked in the sticky and I'm too lazy to fetch it tongue.gif )

It's the same thing I said before:

I think you'll get this as soon as you cross the finish line in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place.

I got the hero one(not sure if I placed in the top3). Style is not hard at all, atleast it wasn't for me. As for the gotham tv one, it's very random. One day it just poped up out of nowhere.

Ok guys I got both of 'em now! smile.gif

The Gotham Hero one came up for me after a few races online, I was in this race with about 2 hotshots and a few other high ranked guys. When the race stated to load I had a message come up telling me the race is on Gotham TV. I guess if you have alot of higly ranked players in your race you have a much bigger chance of beening on it, it dont really matter what place you come in the race.
