Beginning with Resident Evil 4 (which is still one of the best games of all-time), the Resident Evil series moved away from the earlier “survival horror” games and more toward generic action, which by the sixth entry had made the series feel like it lost its roots. With the seventh installment, it looks like we’re going right back to the beginning: a creepy house and you scared out of your mind. I remember playing the first Resident Evil with my friend on a huge TV (in the dark of course), and-because I don’t know its real name-what we dubbed “The LICKER” dropped down from the ceiling to kill us and we RAN. OUT. OF. THE. HOUSE. I don’t generally like things designed to scare since the world is scary enough (and I can pretty much guarantee you that the last Resident Evil movie which not-so-coincidentally releases on Friday) isn’t going to scare you. But Resident Evil VII Biohazard.….um, it looks terrifying. Full cheevos below as always courtesy of the best site for achievement needy gamers: xboxachievements.com.

After approximately 9,000 years of waiting, 25 different titles, and even more hyperbole, Final Fantasy XV is less than six hours from release in the United States. Final Fantasy X was the game that got me back into gaming after a several year hiatus, so I’m looking at the advance reviews, and feeling good about returning to a franchise that once WAS RPGs, and has become left behind as franchises like Mass Effect, Elder Scrolls, and The Witcher passed it by. Like all Final Fantasy games, it looks gorgeous (and the achievements seem human for once). The full list is below courtesy of the peerless xboxachievements.com. Final Fantasy XV will release at midnight.

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. Continue reading The Ezio Collection (Assassin’s Creed) Complete Achievement/Trophy Lists (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. Continue reading Watch Dogs 2 – Complete Achievement/Trophy List (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. Continue reading Complete Achievement/Trophy List for Dishonored 2 (Xbox, Playstation – 2016)
