Complete Achievement/Trophy List for FIFA 16 (XBOX, Playstation – 2015)

With FIFA’s annual offering, I do believe the deluge of sports games comes to an end. While it might not be the most popular game in the genre in the States (that would be Madden), FIFA is worldwide the most popular sports franchise, so if you live internationally, double-check your country’s release date.  In the US, FIFA 16 will be hitting shelves on September 22, 2015.

Complete Achievement/Trophy List for Transformers: Devastation (Xbox, Playstation – 2015)

This game could be a healing balm to the kids of the 1980’s who have watched our beloved Transformers morphed into Michael Bay’s evil chamber pot.  The game is made in the style of the original cartoon and most of the voice actors from the cartoon are returning including Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime and Frank Welker as Megatron.  Transformers: Devastation releases October 6. 2015 Continue reading Complete Achievement/Trophy List for Transformers: Devastation (Xbox, Playstation – 2015)

Complete Achievement/Trophy List for NHL 16 (Xbox, Playstation – 2015)

It’s sports game time!  Yesterday, Madden 16 hit the shelves, and games for the NBA and NHL aren’t far behind.  I love hockey, but I don’t think I’ve ever played a hockey game that put me on the ice in the way I wanted.  Last year’s NHL installment from EA was not a critical success, though as the sole license holder to make NHL games, EA has little incentive to make improvements unless the fans stop buying.  This year’s installment certainly looks fantastic and I hope the game will equal that when NHL 16 releases for consoles on September 17, 2015.  Remember for all your cheevo needs and further analysis to check out the fantastic xboxachievements.com.

Timeline of the New Star Wars Extended Universe (What is Canon and When Did it Happen?)

Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill, Frank Oz, Star Wars Episode V, The Empire Strikes Back

Outer Places has put together a truly fantastic timeline showing an integrated layout of when all of the movies, TV series, comic series and novels take place in relationship to one another.  In the previous extended universe, which had hundreds of books and comics, nothing was quite certain as to whether it was really canon or not.  In the new extended universe, everything is.  If it happens in a comic book, it’s just as relevant as if it happens in a film.

And, just in case, you think big things aren’t happening in the fantastic comics that Marvel is putting out: Han Solo has a wife at the time of Episode IV and we see the moment Vader releases that the pilot the blew up the Death Star is named “Skywalker”; that Padme’s child (later children) survived.  In two week, Aftermath, the first novel that will begin to connect Return of the Jedi with Episode VII will release.  Exciting times for Star Wars fans!
