Here's a nice little challenge for you to try this weekend. For those of you with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, and are looking to make an easy 25G, this is for you. The 'How Pedestrian' achievement asks you to walk the entirety of the level "Halo". You know, the massive second level of the game. However, there's one big obstacle standing in your way, and that's where the Achievement Hunters come in. See, you have to grenade jump your way across a pretty large gap. I'd try to explain it, ...
Today continues an overload of Assassin's Creed: Revelations posts, so let's begin! This is a lengthy video guide that comes from PowerPyx to get the Iron Curtain achievement. What seems like a herculian task will only net you 20G on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3. What gives, Ubisoft?
Talk about a tough challenge with very little reward. The '50x Combo' achievement in Batman: Arkham City is hard to get. Like, stupidly hard. What you have to do to get this achievement is get a 50x combo without taking any damaged.
In the level "Going Hunting", you take control of the co-pilot of an F-18 Hornet tasked with shooting down enemy planes. To get the 'You Can Be My Wingman Anytime' achievement, you'll need a perfect playthrough of the level. That means you don't get hit, and all the enemy planes are shot down without running out of ammo. Do this, and you'll get 30G on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3. If you need some guidance, check out the video below.
Having trouble getting the 'Kill Box' achievement on "Return to Sender" in Modern Warfare 3? Here, let Ray and Michael from Achievement Hunters help you out. Oh, and the best part? This is good for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of the game. Personally, this one took me a couple tries to get, and I can only assume this gets harder on the higher difficulties. The reward for your efforts are 20G for 360 players, or a swanky bronze trophy for PS3 folks.
Further proving I need to start the College of Winterhold quest line already, here comes this achievement tutorial for 'The Eye of Magnus'. This is the last main quest for the College of Winterhold, and the coolest looking quest in the storyline. In true fantasy fashion, there's a really evil wizard looking to uproot all of reality, and you're tasked with taking him down for good. Here's a tip, though: shoot The Eye of Magnus with The Staff of Magnus so you're able to directly attack Ancano.
Mind control is always awesome, and it's even more awesome when you can use it to unlock achievements. Take the 'Hat Trick' achievement, for example. In Rage, if you manage to kill three enemies using just one mind controlled enemy, you'll unlock 'Hat Trick' on the Xbox 360 version of the game.
Continuing the theme of "Let's get a bunch of achievements on the 'Halo' level", the 'No Fly Zone' achievement should be cake for seasoned Halo veterans. All you do is destroy three out of four banshees on the level "Halo", as demonstrated by the Achievement Hunters below.
Because I like all of you so much, here's two achievements for the price of one! They're both on the level "Black Tuesday" of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and they're pretty easy to get, too.
After months of waiting, it seems the Xbox 360 interface update has finally arrive. I can't wait to go home and test it, though many complain it slows the system down and has nothing new, just better navigation. Hmm.
The guys over at Achievement Hunter have a really great compilation of Modern Warfare 3 achievement guides. I mean, why else would we showcase them here? This one is for 'Danger Close' on the "Bag and Drag" level, and will net you a cool 20G, or a bronze trophy if you're on PlayStation 3. Basically, you have to target a helicopter so your buddies up in the AC-130 will shoot it down for you. I haven't even thought of trying this one out, so I guess I know what I'm doing when I get home today.
Here's a nice challenge for you completionists out there. In Assassin's Creed: Revelations, after you collect all 10 of the memoir pages, load up Sequence 5 - Memory 3 and head over to the Hagia Sofia. Once you're inside, I hope you're wearing your platforming hat, because you will need to jump, climb, slide and glide your way to the very end of the challenge course.
Talk about your plot twists! This article may contain some spoilers for the Batman: Arkham City sidequest Fragile Alliance. Read on if you dare, or don't care about cool things being spoiled for you.
Players have been soaring through the skies in the popular Ace Combat series of games for a long time. The latest title, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon comes complete with several different unlockable trophies and achievements including the incredibly impressive, "Checking In." The achievement will require you to fly through a hotel in order to unlock it.
Batman: Arkham City is full of really humanizing moments. From paying your respects to Mr. and Mrs. Wayne, to this one where you find Mr. Freeze's wife. This one little side quest goes a long way to show that Mr. Freeze is actually a dude beneath all of the armor and ice.
It may not be the most epic of quests in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but it's one that's worth taking up. Getting married not only gets you 20G on Xbox 360 or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3, but you also get some cool in-game bonuses. Your wife (or husband, depending on gender or sexual orientation) will cook you a hot meal every day that restores your health fully, and she or he will even give you gifts sometimes!
What started off as a meme, has turned into a near reality. When the E3 trailer for Battlefield 3 was released this summer, it started off with a soldier holding up a dinosaur statue. Obviously, this means that DICE (the developers) should release a DLC pack where you're fighting dinosaurs. This is the next best thing, I guess. DICE, if you're listening, I've got loads of ideas for the dinosaur DLC.
Okay, a bit of a disclaimer before we get to the achievement talk. To do this one, you'll have to have bought the Old World Blues DLC for Fallout: New Vegas.
Here's another Battlefield 3 Back to Karkand achievement for you. Remember, only try this if you have the Back to Karkand DLC, otherwise you won't have access to the maps required.
The easiest way to get these two trophies in Payday: The Heist is to load up the map Slaughterhouse. Now, to get the 'But How?' trophy, you have to let the armored car fall into the building by itself. But how? Well, after the armored car gets knocked onto the roof the building, just let it sit there. Do not shoot the support cables. If you survive two waves of enemies coming in to get you, the car will fall by itself.
Payday: The Heist is probably my favorite multiplayer game this year. I mean, what's cooler than joining up with three of your buddies and robbing banks in a videogame?
Twisted Pixel Games' The Gunstringer is easily the most ridiculous game of the year. I mean, you play as an undead cowboy marionette, legendary director Lloyd Kaufman is in it, and at the end of the game, you shoot the developers. Oh, and the first boss in the game is an inflatable wavy tube man.
I remember playing this part of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 fondly. Not because you take control of an awesome remote-controlled grenade shooting robot, but because I died toward the end of the level and had to restart back at the beginning of the robot section. Stupid checkpoints.
343 Guilty Spark is one of the most recognizable characters from the Halo universe. And how could you not love that little sphere of questionable moral standards? While he plays a major part in the campaign in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, he never showed up in multiplayer. Well, until now, that is.
The latest in the Legend of Zelda series, Skyward Sword, released a few short weeks ago to very little fanfare. I have no idea why that is, because the game is absolutely gorgeous and pretty darn good. Maybe it was the fact that Nintendo forced motion controls in to this one, or maybe it was because everyone is busy playing Skyrim/Modern Warfare 3/Battlefield 3. Whatever the reason, if you even remotely like the Zelda series, give this one a whirl.
To be honest, I haven't played an Assassin's Creed game since the first one way back in 2007. So, the fact that there is a character named Duccio kind of makes me want to play the new one, Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Add to that, the fact you can get 20G if you're playing on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3 if you beat the tar out of him...well, color me interested!
Here's another Back to Karkand achievement guide for Battlefield 3. This one is for 'Third Tour', which requires you to get a kill using only the BTR-90, DPV, and F-35. Oh, these are all vehicles by the way, so you know this is going to be a fun one.
THe next time you're headed through Subway Town in Rage, take a look behind Jani's Supplies. Once you accept the quest from the man back there, head to the Abandoned Distillery. This video walkthrough will show you where to find the secret room with developer artwork and signatures in Rage. Finding the room will reward you with the 'Dev Graffiti' achievement and trophy on the Xbox 360 and PS3 respectively.
Here's a good achievement for Battlefield 3 players who are tackling the co-op campaign. In the last level of the campaign, "The Eleventh Hour", you're tasked with diffusing a bomb before it blows up a subway station.
Hopefully by now, you've played a good chunk of RAAM's Shadow for Gears of War 3. I've just now started to get to it, as my buddy and I have just completed the main campaign on co-op. For today, we've got three achievements for the newly released DLC. Just make sure you have this downloaded before diving in, okay?
Teddy bears have been a standard part of every Call of Duty game since the original on PC. So it should come as no surprise that Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games would include them in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
As is the case with all of the games in the Uncharted series, trying to find all of the pieces of treasure in the game is an exercise in sudden hair loss and creative use of expletives. At least in my case.
So you just got Assassin's Creed: Revelations yesterday, and you're loving it. Awesome! But, oh no, what's this? You can't find all of the Memoir Pages to unlock the Hagia Sophia level? What do you do?
Any daredevils out there? This one is for you. The 'Almost Flying' achievement in Assassin's Creed: Revelations looks absolutely awesome to try. You'll have to parachute from the top of the Galata Tower (which I think is the highest point in the game), and fly all the way to the golden horn.
Is the Iron Curtain achievement in Assassin's Creed: Revelations getting you down? Well here, have an easier one to try out. The 'Mosh Pit' calls for ten guards to be poisoned at the same time. Do that, and you'll net a cool 20G on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3.
YouTuber sockcornnoodles is a punk. Not only does he have the best user name ever, but he's able to make it through a single chapter of Super Meat Boy without dying. Which also got him the 'Iron Boy!' achievement, worth a measly 10G on Xbox 360.
If you're crafty with a sniper rifle, this achievement is for you. In order to get 'Bullseye', you have to take out all of the bad guys in the level "Drop 'em Like Liquid" without alerting anyone to your presence. Good luck with that, by the way. If you manage to pull this off, you'll be rewarded with 20G on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3.
Remember going to see Inception last summer and dreaming of playing a game where you'd fight dudes in zero gravity like Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Well, you can in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3! Not only that, but there's 20G on Xbox 360 or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3 in it if you complete that section of the game taking out all of the bad guys.
The next time you're playing through Rage on the Xbox 360, try killing an authority troop before they land on the ground. If you manage to take it out quickly enough, you'll be able to unlock the 'Jetpacker' achievement for your Xbox Live profile. Just be sure to use a weapon with a lot of stopping power.
Achievement Hunter is an awesome segment from the Rooster Teeth guys and it's a great way to find out about unlocking achievements. This video goes over unlocking the "Bushman," "Close and Personal," and "Adrenaline Seeker" achievements in the Xbox 360 version of Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2012.
