Despite the controversial end to the trilogy, Mass Effect remains one of the greatest RPG achievements of the past two console generations, so a new entry to the series is one of the three biggest games of 2017 (the others being the new Zelda and Red Dead Redemption 2 this fall). Those with EA Access have already been exploring the Andromeda galaxy since yesterday, and so far, the game (aside from the slightly creepy face texture they’ll eventually get around to patching) takes the best gameplay from the trilogy and adds a heightened focus on discovery and exploration. My first time playing the game, I didn’t move for six hours and I started at 1:30 a.m. (I’m not advising that). If an RPG (and there are sadly fewer and fewer) is made by Bethesda or Bioware, it’s worth the dozens if not hundreds of hours you devote to it. In a game like this, achievements are almost beside the point (did I say that?), but as always the complete list is below courtesy of the Internet’s Mass Effect Relay for Cheevo Hunters: xboxachievements.com. Mass Effect: Andromeda will be available to all gamers on Playstation, PC, and Xbox One this Tuesday. Continue reading Mass Effect: Andromeda Complete Achievement/Trophy List (Xbox, PS – 2017)
I was not a huge fan of the first Halo Wars, and RTS games were my obsession in high school. Command & Conquer, Dune, Warcraft, Age of Empires, etc. I still don’t think that format has ever been done as well on consoles as on the PC, but maybe Halo Wars 2 will be the one that breaks the mold. Halo Wars 2 is a Microsoft exclusive for Windows 10 and Xbox One and will launch this Friday, February 25, 2017. For a complete list of achievements, check out the list below provided by the site on the Intertubes all cheevo addicts should worship: xboxachievements.com.

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.

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.

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.
