AC/DC Live will only add twelve new achievements (viewable after the jump) worth 250 Gamerscore, which is the maximum Gamerscore a game expansion can offer. Interesting is the fact that the achievements do not all pertain to the AC/DC Live songs, as some actually refer to purchasable DLC. So, Rock Band 2 owners will be receiving a few more achievement challenges without an AC/DC Live purchase.
The achievements (viewable after the jump) include the standard mission completion and combat mix, but also include a handful of "Speedrun" and movement string achievements. We can already tell that earning 1000 Gamerscore will not be a given all because of the 80GS "Test of Faith" achievement that is only unlocked once you "complete the game without shooting an enemy." That's asking a lot from fanboys who have spent years and years finely tuning their headshot skills.
To unlock this 0 Gamerscore achievement, you have to enter a matchmaking playlist with exactly 7EXP on the 7th of the month. Seeing that today is October 7th (your next chance will be November 7th), all you have to do is make sure you have 7EXP in any Halo 3 playlist. It's that simple. And for those of you who have earned over 7EXP on all the playlists, Bungie setup a special one day only 7 on the 7th matchmaking playlist called "Icy Treats". Here, you'll start out with 0EXP and play in Cold Storage until you win seven games and earn your 7EXP. Happy unlocking!
Rooster Teeth's site all about achievements and the joy (or pain) they cause, Achievement Hunter just posted a new Dead Space video showing how you can earn both the "Marksman" and "Tool Time" achievements. The video walk-through (embedded above) demos how you can easily decapitate evil, blow off limbs, squish heads and earn yourself 15 Gamerscore in the process. Watch the vid and be sure to stay clear of those auto closing doors. They're equally deadly as the ones they install at Walmart stores.
According to the Rock Band forums, one of the Harmonix developers has confirmed the AC/DC pack will include its own achievement list. HMXHenry wrote: "There will be unique Achievements and Trophies for the AC/DC Track Pack, as well as several that are song specific."
Now the question remains, will it add a gamerscore to Rock Band 2 during transfer or will the achievements only be available while playing from the AC/DC disc? We'll update you as more details are released.
The information provided in the three added achievements, which toss another 50 possible gamerscore points int the game, point to new multiplayer maps. Marble Blast Ultra sits on our personal favorite XBLA titles ever and is currently listed as one of the few Arcade Hits and asks 400MS points.
But what about the 20 other "Mythic" achievements and their 500 Gamerscore that were discovered last night? Well, we still don't know exactly what they're all about, but team Bungie has acknowledged their existence. In their latest blog post, Bungie makes note that the other "Mythic" achievements are viewable but says that "we're not ready to comment on any other achievements right now" and that "all will become clear in due time."
So, exercise your patience skills for the time being and, while you wait, start unlocking Halo 3's additional 250 Gamerscore. We hear there's a special treat for those who go after the Vidmaster Challenge achievements.
See, back in August we posted a list of "unofficial" Fable 2 achievements that leaked their way online. Now these new achievements, they're official with official artwork AND we noticed a few differences. Don't worry though, from what we can tell no actual achievements have been added or removed since the August leak. Instead, a few descriptions have changed including our favorite of the bunch, "The Swingers", which now reads "take part in a debauched bedroom party with several participants." Nice!
The other major difference between the unofficial and official Fable 2 achievements is the added ability to unlock some achievements not by doing the action, but rather seeing someone else perform the act. Meaning that Gamerscore can be earned simply by watching a friend ("Hero") complete the task. Think of it as an achievement tag team effort.
Red Faction: Guerrilla is the third title in the established franchise which began on PC in 2001 but marks the first time the series has shifted to a third-person perspective. Recently, an exclusive Xbox 360 multiplayer beta ended for Red Faction: Guerrilla garnering mixed reactions from testers.
Of the twelve achievements uncovered by MyGamerCard nine are original challenges for console gamers to play with when the game hits the service later this year. Well, at least we get something new! Hey, we don't mean to be hard on the game but its like when our parents scold us. They aren't mad, they're just disappointed. Yet, we still can't wait for the game ... sort that one out!
Source - Far Cry 2 achievements
Source - Spider-man: Web of Shadows achievements
BUT there's one glaring mystery that isn't fully addressed, and that's the other mysterious H3 achievements that were photographed during PAX. In their update, Bungie does admit the 10 title update achievements "aren't the only achievements we're adding" but that "there's not a whole lot else we're going to say" regarding the other achievement content. Sneaky. Suspicious. Juicy.
So, we are guaranteed to get an additional 250 Gamerscore and 10 achievements for Halo 3 later this month, but we're still clueless to when or how Assembly will release, what all that Mythic talk was and why we can't haz Recon. Too many questions and absolutely zero answers.
