Tekken 7 – Complete Achievement and Trophy List (Xbox, Playstation – 2017)

Tekken has never really been my favorite fighting franchise (and, to be honest, I think I’m going to destroy my arms playing Injustice 2 over the next few months), but it’s a venerable institution in the fighting genre going back decades now.  The seventh installment has just released for Xbox One and Playstation 4, and below is your complete guide to achievements, courtesy as always from the InterTubes best site for achievement addicts: xboxachievements.com.

Prey – Complete Achievement and Trophy List (Xbox One, PS4 – 2017)

Prey’s not really looking like my cup of tea, but Bethesda does have a sterling track record, so if any KTers pick this up, let me know how you’re liking or not liking it.  This, by the way, has nothing to do with the game of the same name featuring a Native American protagonist from the last console generation.  Prey’s already out for PS4 and Xbox One.  Complete achievement list below courtesy of the peerless xboxachievements.com.

May the Fourth Be With You! Happy Star Wars Day 2017!!!

May the Fourth Be With You, Yoda

“May the Fourth be with you!”
“And also with you!”
If you can have this exchange with someone today, this person is someone to not ignore the other 364 days of the year.  Today is, of COURSE, the greatest unofficial holiday on the calendar: Star Wars Day!  Not Cinco de Mayo eve, but a celebration of the greatest fictional universe and the state of that fictional universe has never been stronger.  Star Wars never really went away, but it hasn’t been mainstream cool like this since the Original Trilogy in the early 1980’s.  We’ve had two outstanding films from Disney that have established enough good will and confidence in the franchise’s future that they’re not pushing The Last Jedi the way they did Rogue One and The Force Awakens.  They know we’re on-board.  What they are consistently doing is making sure the EU is promoting upcoming projects and is living up to the quality standards they’ve established for films.  Novels, Comics,TV Shows, Video Games; all of it ties back to strengthening the brand as a whole and supporting the films.  So we know what lies at the end of the 2017, but that’s far from the only Star Wars projects to look forward to while we count the days to TLJ.

Injustice 2 – Complete Achievement/Trophy List (2017-Xbox, Playstation)

Injustice: Gods Among Us is one of the best fighting games I’ve ever played, not just because the fighting mechanics were great and the iconic DCU environments all perfect.  Injustice got its characters and wove a fantastic story into a genre into which there usually is little to none.  The story of Superman’s fall from grace into global tyrant and the civil war it sparked among the DC heroes was so good it sparked a comic that ran for the five years inbetween the game’s release and the upcoming sequel Injustice 2.

This installment promises to be one of the games of 2017 with more heroes, an intriguing customization and leveling system, and hype built on story, story, story.  A five-part cinematic ramp up entitled Shattered Alliances and included above gives a look at the games roster and serves as a prelude to the DCU’s war with Braniac.  The achievement list looks like a lot of fun and gives some insight into the settings and what appears to be deep replay value of the game.  Injustice 2 will release on May 16, 2017 for Xbox One and Playstation 4.  As always your achievements below are provided by the peerless xboxachievements.com.

Trailer Time: Star Wars Battlefront II (2017 – Xbox, Playstation)

The original Star Wars Battlefront games had single player modes that were integral to the enjoyment of the game, and DICE made a big mistake omitting a campaign from its revival of the franchise.  Normally video game trailers don’t come on the site until launch, but we are all Star Wars geeks, and Star Wars video games are canon now (the first Battlefront is how the brought back Boba Fett post ROTJ).  This campaign reveal looks amazingly epic, spanning the destruction of the second Death Star to the rise of The First Order.  I was not pleased with the multiplayer-only first installment, but this trailer has me changing my mind.  Read more below from Coming Soon for all the details.
