Cooperative Left 4 Dead achievements

Today, Valve released the entire 1000 Gamerscore list of Left 4 Dead achievements, because they know there are obsessive achievement fanboys who need to be informed. The list of achievements (viewable after the jump) is a nice blend of individual, cooperative and even a few zombie based achievements. You know, ones that'll have you attempting to "cover four Survivors with Boomer bile at once" to unlock "Barf Bagged." Note too that a good portion of the Gamerscore is allocated to protecting and saving your Survivor companions. So, no team killing. Okay?

Rock Band 2 AC/DC achievements add 250GS

Achievements for the Walmart exclusive expansion Rock Band 2: AC/DC Live have made their way onto the internet and we now know that the game is being treated as an all out expansion as far as achievements go.

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.

Agile Mirror's Edge achievements revealed

The MGC crew just sent word that all 1000 Gamerscore worth of Mirror's Edge achievements have been revealed and most all are acrobatic in nature.

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.

Reminder: Unlock Halo 3's 7 on 7 achievement

Friendly reminder to all Halo 3 fanboys who are on a mission to unlock all the new achievements, today is the first chance you have to earn Halo 3's "Vidmaster Challenge: 7 on 7" achievement.

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!

Achievement hunter takes on Dead Space

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.

AC/DC pack will include unique achievements

When the AC/DC standalone expansion disc was announced for Rock Band 2 we silently wondered, since the pack is its own title will it have its own achievements? The answer is yes.

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.

New achievements point to Marble Blast Ultra DLC

If a recent update to the achievement list - discovered by Xbox 360 Achievements - for Marble Blast Ultra is to be believed, new content is heading to the popular XBLA title. One of the original Xbox Live Arcade titles to be released, Marble Blast Ultra is the high-definition remake of the popular marble rolling PC puzzler.

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.

Halo 3 title update is live! New achievements and a new ranking system

Just in case you're totally out of the Halo 3 loop, earlier this morning Bungie, unleashed the game's second title update and with it comes new playlists, a new ranking system and ten new achievements. You can learn more about the playlist changes, how the ranking system works, the changes on and view a general title update Q&A over at Bungie HQ.

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.

Official Fable 2 achievements now with added 'see and unlock'!

The official list of Fable 2 achievements has just trickled its way online and if you think you're experiencing some déjà vu, you're somewhat correct.

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.

Create-an-achievement, Red Faction style!

Feeling creative? The team at Volition have recently announced a community contest to name the final multiplayer achievement for the upcoming shooter, Red Faction: Guerrilla. Asking players to think outside the box instead of the standard "Kill X amount of bad dudes," the top five entries selected by the developers will receive prizes. Top prize will see their suggestion added to the game on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, receive a copy of the Collector's Edition and another unnamed surprise.

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.

Portal XBLA achievements offer more original content than actual game

When it was announced at E3 2008 the potential of Portal: Still Alive for the Xbox Live Arcade excited fans of the popular holiday '07 first-person-puzzler. While the title is still anticipated for its bonus content, which is available for free now at BigDownload, many were disappointed that the title simply offers the same experience in downloadable form. As a testament to the popularity of the game and not the shortcomings of the Arcade release, players simply wanted more. Luckily original ideas have found a way into the XBLA release of Portal. Unfortunately they come in the form of new achievements for the game.

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!

[Thanks, Morgon]

Deadly Dead Space achievements aren't dead

Our pals over at 360Sync just posted the officially official list of achievements for a spacey survival horror game that you may know as Dead Space. The achievements, comprised of 48 total with 8 being secret, are a nice mix of story progression as well as weapon based achievements. We'll be proud once we unlock "Butcher" and "Air Alert". What can we say? We love making messes and jumping from wall to wall.

Far Cry 2 and Web of Shadows achievements

Achievement lovers gather 'round, we have some freshly new achievements to share that are solely related to Far Cry 2 and Spider-man: Web of Shadows. Intrigued? If so, you can click your way to the complete list of achievements via the links below, but be warned. The Spider-man achievements are yawn inducing and Far Cry 2's are, well, aren't all that bad. The Mapper achievement and its mention of "validation" makes us raise an eyebrow or two.

Rumor: Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts achievements

Fresh from a visit to Rare HQ for some hands-on with Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, the Xbox 360 Online Center folks came back with a supposed list of Nuts & Bolts achievements. Though, they came back without any of the pretty achievement artwork. Boo! You can view the "rumored" list of achievements after the jump and even though there aren't any achievements quite as good as Gears 2's "Beat the Meatflag", Nuts & Bolts' "BBQ Beef" achievement is pretty yummy. Or maybe we're just hungry.

Bungie: New H3 achievements part of title update

As part of their Weekly Update, Bungie has finally addressed the Halo 3 achievements rumor that sprung up during PAX, confirming that 10 new achievements worth an additional 250 Gamerscore will be added to Halo 3 as part of the (newly delayed) September 25th title update. Achievements that are mostly related to the Legendary map pack and a few 0 Gamerscore achievements that are "Vidmaster Challenges". Check the break for the complete list.

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.
