I've neglected you, yes you... my readers. I've been juicin' the cheevz and ridin' the wave of cheevo flavor, and I've not stopped... stopped to tell you all that I've accomplished. Please accept my apologies and revel in the goodness of the cheevz! This post will be all inclusive, and will bring you up to speed on all that is the cheevy goodness of these past weeks of gaming.

Finally, the journey is over. Yes, I finished this game a while ago, but with the holidays and personal life getting in the way, I've only now been able to post my cheev haul. It's a good game, I'll give it that. It's scary in all the right ways, but the back and forth messenger missions become irritating VERY quickly.
Pack Rat is easy enough, depending on the difficulty you are playing. Sooner or later, you'll gather up so much crap that you can't carry it all. Just transfer all your stuff into storage(at least 25 pieces), and the cheevo will unlock.
There's Always PENG! is easy, just look over the railing where you initially land. You'll see a small statue over the railing. Use your kinesis to bring it up to you, boom cheevo unlocked. Here is a shitty video, that might help.
The rest are either self explanatory or come with beating the game. You can also get some of the other cheevos by hitting the predetermined number with each weapon. I opted not to go back because I'm so flooded with games that those cheevos were not worth it to me.

Gamefly has provided yet another new game for me to try. Let me say, I'm glad I rented this game. No, I have not finished it yet, but it's not that fun. The names of the cheevos are cool because they harken back to old Bond movies, but otherwise they don't mean anything... which annoys me. Anyway, the story is lacking and it's not much fun. Also, quick time events can lick my balls. There, I said it. On to the cheevos.
License To Kill and The Man With The Golden Gun... headshots, headshots, headshots.
Time To Face Gravity is attained in the first level. You'll reach a mansion, and the left side of the house in a balcony is a man with a gun. Hit him with a headshot, and he'll fall through the cellar door below him.
The rest happen with gameplay.

New Arcade game! w00t! This is a fun little game if you are into dungeon crawling, looting, and leveling up a character. It's top down visual style is annoying to me, but some may like it.
I have to thank my fellow cheevin' buddy Mike53414 for hooking me up with 500,000 gold for the Gold Miser cheevo and for breakin' it down old school to get the Team Work cheevo.
It's a fun little game, that happened to be on sale. Good times.
The Executioner-Are achievements really worth the lives of so many innocents? Probably-10G
The Gambler-A Hero won 500 gold at a tavern game in one sitting. Time for more gambling!-10G
The Property Magnate-A property was sold for twice its original value. Now that's good business-10G
The Hoarder-You, or a friend, found every single silver key in Albion. Some would call you obsessive. Not us-25G
The Completionist-You, or a friend, have gathered every expression, pet trick and ability available. Such dedication-50G
w00t!!!!! Oh my damn! 1000 cheevo points! Full completion! I'd like to give a shout out and thanks to slappypyne for hooking me up with The Completionist and The Hoarder cheevos. He's a cool guy, and I might add, extends the offer to any who ask... ask politely of course.
The Property Magnate is an easy one to get. Buy the cheapest house you can find, and put the nicest stuff in the house. Buy all luxury items from the furniture store. Once you've replaced all the items in the home, sell it. You'll get the cheevo in no time.
The Gambler requires you to WIN 500 gold in one sitting. However, you must have played ALL THREE game types prior to this. So, give them all a go then play the one you are best at. My cheevo didn't unlock until after I cashed out and quit the card game, so don't be discouraged if it doesn't unlock right away.

What can I say about this game? I love it. Killing zombies is something every red-blooded American enjoys.
Burn The Witch and Towering Inferno, while both are almost assured suicide to attempt, it's a lot of fun. Just get out a molotov cocktail, and toss it on either the Witch or the Tank and you'll unlock these cheevos (and a sound beating).
Witch Hunter, Jump Shot, and Ground Cover are more luck and opportunity than anything else.
When attempting Clean Kill, make sure you melee the boomer and move far back enough so that he doesn't explode on you or your team when you shoot him.
I would also like to note that I'm currently trying to get the Cr0wned cheevo, and I've been getting my ass handed to me like nobody's business. I'll keep trying, you'll see... I'll do it!

I've only touched on this game. I haven't given this game a fair shake, but that being said... the story is crap. I understand it's a video game, but I don't get how a person that just kidnapped you and threatened your life would hand you a gun and some grenades and tell you to get to work.
Villan: "You cost me a lot of money... you killed a lot of my men... You are lucky you aren't dead yet! Here, take this fully automatic AK-47 and these live fragmentation grenades. You work for me now! Let me just turn my back on you, so that I might elaborate on the dangerous job I'm forcing you to do!"
Your character, "Yes massah!".
NO. It doesn't work that way! Pssh, whatever. Like I said, I haven't given the game much time, and I'm not sure how much I want to play it. The controls are crap and so is the AI. Anyway, just play the game for a while and you'll get these three... hell, I should get the full 1000 for even screwing with this game.

That's it folks. I'm trying to get caught up on all the sweet ass cheev- news! Have a Happy New Year, with many cheevos to come.
