Deadshot is one of my all-time favorite Batman villains. So when I saw that he was in Batman: Arkham City, I jumped on this sidequest faster than I jump on a fresh batch of cornbread. Don't judge me, I'm from Indiana.
Here's a trophy guide for Payday: The Heist that requires excellent teamwork. To get the 'No Photos' trophy, you'll need to take out all of the security cameras in the level First World Bank within ten seconds of drawing your weapon.
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!
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Having trouble getting the 'Nein' achievement in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3? Then let the Achievement Hunters help you out! What seems to be a pretty simple 20G Xbox 360 achievement, or bronze PlayStation 3 trophy, is actually pretty tough to get. I wish I had this video last night as I finished the game, as it took a few tries to get this achievement.
The Standing Stones in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim are wonderful little additions to the game. Basically, they give your character modified attributes, or special abilities to give you the upper hand in the game. For example, if you activate The Mage Stone, you'll learn all of your magicka skills 20% faster. Long story short, they're awesome and you should find as many as possible.
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.
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.
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.
Victor Zsasz is one seriously messed up dude. Since I don't read too many Batman comics, I'm not that familiar with the character. But after experiencing him in Batman: Arkham City, I'm ready to read up more about him.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In this awesome five-part series, the Achievement Hunters break down how to find every terminal and skull in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. Skulls have been gameplay modifiers, and have been a part of the series since Halo 2. Basically, you start a single player level off with a bunch of these guys on to drastically increase difficulty, change the way you play, or induce silliness. The terminals are a fairly recent addition to the series, and give a bunch of back-story on the different cha...
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?
Trying to get all the achievements in Battlefield 3's single player campaign? You'll go nowhere without this handy guide to getting the poorly named 'Butterfly' achievement. Basically, you have to shoot down a plane on your first attempt with a Stinger missile on the level "Rock and a Hard Place". Seems easy, right?
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.
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?
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.
Today, I'm dedicating to the Assassin's Creed fans out there. Yesterday saw the release of the latest in the series, Assassin's Creed: Revelations. In honor of that release, we here at Achievement Arcade would like to give the fans every advantage you can get.
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.
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.
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.
Another great thing about Batman: Arkham City? The rogues gallery! Every great villain from Batman's history shows up in the game, and it's always awesome when they do turn up. Even Mr. Freeze, my least favorite of Batman's enemies, is kind of cool in the game (see what I did there?).
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.
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.
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.
The 'It's Good!' achievement and trophy available on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Rage is obtained while driving the ATV in the game. You will need to jump through 3 different posts located at the Ark Emergence site, the Bash TV station, and the Northern Watch tower. This video tutorial will show you where to find all of them.
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.
