Dead Rising 4 – Complete Achievement List (Xbox One, PC – 2016)

Everybody’s favorite handyman/zombie slayer, Frank West, is back in Dead Rising 4.  Though it’s getting middling reviews, Dead Rising 4 still offers you the chance to kill the undead with a giant candy cane.  So…you’re going to play it.  I have never had much luck with Dead Rising games, though I am in awe of the way they have managed to combine seemingly innocuous objects in ways that prove lethal to the undead.  The teddy bear bomb from Dead Rising 3 springs to mind….at any rate, the fourth installment is out now for Xbox One and PC, and-as always-your cheevos below are courtesy of the awe-inspiring gurus at xboxachievements.com.

The Ezio Collection (Assassin’s Creed) Complete Achievement/Trophy Lists (Xbox, Playstation – 2016)

It’s tough to argue that the best of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, bundled in an enhanced graphics package, in a 3 for 1 deal isn’t a great way to revisit the games in preparation for the upcoming (please, God, let it be good) movie.  Or, if you’ve never played the Assassin’s Creed franchise, you really should play the first game, but if you want to dive into installments 2-4 of the series, you can’t go wrong.  While it’s hitting the big screen, the series is taking a break.  There will be no installment this year, and it looks like 2017 will be assassin-free as well.  This is ironic since last year’s Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate was the best game in the series since the final installment in this package.  Rumor is when next we meet, the setting will be ancient Egypt, which is worth waiting for if they can find an Assassin protagonist as deep, charismatic, and fun as Ezio Auditore.  In this trilogy, you will follow Ezio from a clueless youth to the end of his life as the leader of the Assassin Order.  Assassin’s Creed II is undoubtedly the best game in the series, Brotherhood is a slight stumble, but Revelations gave Ezio a grand finale in Constantinople.  You can earn up to 3,000 gamer points if you stealthily stab your way to 100%.  Achievement list below provided by the shadowy organization known only as xboxachievements.com.  The Ezio Collection is available now for Xbox One and Playstation 4.

Watch Dogs 2 – Complete Achievement/Trophy List (Xbox, Playstation – 2016)

Watch Dogs is a franchise much like Dishonored. for me.  Own the first, barely have had a chance to play it in the deluge of awesome games, and now we have a sequel.  I do know there were a lot of critics of the first game, and Ubisoft has apparently taken them into account because the open-world hacking game is getting a lot of buzz (not to mention a scenery change to San Francisco).  One of the last big releases before the holiday hiatus, Watch Dogs 2 is available now for Xbox One, PC, and Playstation 4.  Your achievements below are courtesy of the web’s hub for needy affirmation: xboxachievements.com.

Complete Achievement/Trophy List for Dishonored 2 (Xbox, Playstation – 2016)

One of those games I’ve been meaning to play forever is Dishonored.  I know I’ll like it.  I actually own it, but sad to say I have not yet put Corvo the Assassin through his paces, so I’m not a launch day participant of the stabby antics of Dishonored 2.  That is not to stop you from choosing either the stealthy non-violent approach offered you or the normal bloodthirsty tank mode I employ as the sequel launches.  Full list of cheevos below courtesy, of course, from the excellent xboxachievements.com.

Complete Achievement/Trophy List for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered (Xbox, Playstation – 2016)

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, despite my being sick of the franchise as it stands now, has an incredible bonus going for it: it’s currently the only way to get your hands on the remastered Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (among the best shooters ever made).  THIS is Call of Duty at its absolute peak.  The multiplayer was revolutionary and the campaign wasn’t just tacked-on; it was a blockbuster  you were driving from start to finish.  I have no doubt that eventually we’ll be able to get our hands on it without purchasing the bundle, but if you cave, your cheevos are below, courtesy of xboxachievements.com.  I know it seems it’s raining new games, but that’s because it is.  For whatever reason, we can’t space releases out throughout the year; all big games come out between September and the first week in December (and then there’s not even an Xbox game scheduled for release until the end of January).  It’s crazy, but for non-gamers, the turn back toward mostly film coverage is coming.  This is just gaming’s redonkulous busy season.
