How To: Get the 'How Pedestrian' Achievement in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

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, ...

How To: Get the 'You Can Be My Wingman Anytime' Achievement in Battlefield 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.

How To: Get the "Kill Box" Achievement in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

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.

How To: Get the 'The Eye of Magnus' Achievement in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

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.

How To: Get the 'Danger Close' Achievement in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

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.

How To: Get Married in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

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!

How To: Find a Dinosaur in Battlefield 3

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.

How To: Get the 'But How?' and 'Cheney?' Trophies in Payday: The Heist

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.

How To: Find a Bunch of Easter Eggs for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

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.
