Yesterday I was interviewed in a podcast talking about my contributions for the RetroAchievements project and some "behind the scenes" info.
During the interview I also talked a bit about how the RetroPie project was a big and positive influence in my life.
If you guys are interested in hearing it (and probably have some fun with my foreigner accent), you can check it here:
The work you and the other devs do for RetroAchievements really cannot be praised enough. It's something that is invaluable to me, as the achievements make me want to play some of the old games more just so I can get them. Some of them are really clever too, like the Michael Jackson moonwalk achievement for Sonic 3.
How to contribute if you don't want to be an achievement creator (spoiler: there's A LOT of ways)
We're starting the DevNews segment talking about the DevQuests
I share my tips about how to research a game to get ideas for an interesting achievement set (it's targeted for non-devs too!).

Just in case someone here can understand Portuguese, I was interviewed for RetroAchievements-related podcast and talked about the history of how the cheevos feature was implemented on RetroArch, the backstages of RetroAchievements, my gamer life and other curiosities.
HaHa ;) If this would be made than I think @mediamogul has no excuse for trying this in hardcore mode.
How else am I supposed to get the hardcore 'Rage Quit' achievement? It would be funny to have an achievement that registers an exit from the game within a small window of time. It could be called, 'Eh.... no. I don't think so.'
Thank you very much for this awesome idea.
"Copy all ROMs that have cheevos to a directory."
Can we have a option to move the "cheevonated" (cheevolized? :D) roms to another folder?
And add Cheevos requirements on the cheevos screen?
