Achievement Hunters! As we come into what is one of the final big release weeks
of the year, the achievements offer a wide array of interesting ways to both
challenge and frustrate you.
Starting off the week, Modern Warfare 3 has finally arrived and besides giving a definitive ending to an epic series, it also offers fans a chance to enjoy some interesting achievement options. MW3 has the most simplistic of the week with, "Back to the Fight" which you earn by starting the game. The rest are earned through completing levels on various difficulties and finding collectibles, essentially the garden variety achievements. However one of the last you are sure to earn is "Serrated Edge" meaning you finish off a Juggernaut in Special Ops with a knife. Seems like the toughest you will find from this experience.
Nothing special can be found from Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, aside from the achievement called "Master" which is earned for getting to Level 50. If nothing else, this achievemens lands a swift strike to those who question how large Skyrim is set out to be. Metal Gear Solid HD Collection finds itself winning this week when it comes to unique, difficult, throwback achievements. They range from breaking the necks of enemies, taking pictures of the pant-less marine, catching bowel movements in all the right places, and finishing one of the games without killing a single enemy. Some of the throwbacks are from creating the Ocelot Time Paradox and another for killing "The End" before the actual boss battle takes place.
All in all, this week finds itself adding a few simple and unnecessary achievements to the foray, but also adds some level of difficultly that fans will find engrossing. Not to mention replaying through some classic MGS and earning achievements for some of the more interesting and unique things you could do in the game is well worth it.
Next week we see the end of the season with Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Need for Speed: The Run, Rayman: Origins leading the way.
