Cuphead Complete Achievement List (Xbox, PC – 2017)

One of Microsoft’s biggest problems right now is a lack of exclusives, especially this year.  Console exclusives are getting more and more rare, but when they come, they’ve been coming to the PS4, and that’s a long-term problem for a company launching the XboxX in two months.  Gamers who don’t have 4K are going to need convincing reasons to lay down the $500 Microsoft is asking for the powerful new console.  Cuphead isn’t going do that, but it is a Microsoft exclusive, well-reviewed, and there are-to my knowledge-no other games that look like 1940s WB cartoons featuring tea cups with run and gun action.  Cuphead is available now for Microsoft PC and the Xbox One.  Achievements below courtesy as always  from the peerless xboxachievements.com.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite Complete Achievement List (Xbox, PS4 – 2017)

With the exception of the Injustice series, fighting games don’t really fall into my gaming purview.  I like to think I have decent reflexes….until I play a fighting game with anyone who actually knows how to play it, and then I feel like I have an advanced neuro degenerative condition.  Marvel vs. Capcom is an odd mash-up of characters, but there is something undeniably cool about bringing the Street Fighter line-up against Thanos or having Mega Man taking on Iron Man.  Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is out in stores now, and full achievements below courtesy of the Intertubes premier site for such lists: xboxachievements.com.

Tomb Raider Trailer #1 (2018) *Her Legend Begins*

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Tomb Raider is the story that will set a young and resolute Lara Croft on a path toward becoming a global hero. The film stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (Ex MachinaThe Danish Girl) in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (The Wave), with Oscar winner Graham King (The Departed) producing under his GK Films banner.

Opening in theaters on March 16, 2018, Tomb Raider also stars Dominic West (Money Monster300), Walton Goggins (The Hateful EightDjango Unchained) and Daniel Wu (AMC’s Into the Badlands).

First published in 1996 by the London-based video game company Eidos, Tomb Raider became one of the most successful video games of the time. A reboot of the series, telling the origin of Lara Croft, was released in 2013 and sold over 5 million copies. The most recent game, titled Rise of the Tomb Raider, was released in 2015 and is available now for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PC.
