I've done it. I've finally finished GTA4! There are still many ch33v0z that have yet to be harvested, but I was able to take the GTA disc out of my Xbox and play a few others. Hell, I even got a few cheevz that aren't GTA related! Say hello to Tetris! Yes, that old school game is still fun as hell, and the ch33v0z are ripe and ready for the picking!

I had a pretty good harvest this week from GTA4, raking in around 315 gamerscore. This game doesn't hand out the ch33vz very readily, but when you do get them, they are so much sweeter. Some of the cheevz come from normal gameplay (story and side missions), but only a few will automatically unlock.
Dial B For Bomb, That's How We Roll!, and Liberty City (5) will be unlocked by spending time with your friends, and getting their friendship percentage up over 90%.
Sightseer can be unlocked by taking all 6 helicopter tours. They cost $150, and you can skip them by pressing the "A" button(although, the pilot is hilarious). The helitours can be found on the water line in South Algonquin.
Under The Radar is a relatively easy ch33v0. You can get it in about 10-15 minutes, but if you screw up, you could be swimming for 5 of those minutes. Just take your time, adjust your view, and slowly glide under each bridge. Here is a map of all the bridge locations. Another tip, once you pass under a bridge you'll receive a notification, hit start to look at the map and you'll see all other needed locations. Also, the game doesn't save the locations unless you do a game save, so do them all at once, or save before you quit.
Chain Reaction is easier than you might imagine. You'll need two things, grenades and a bus. Make sure you have at least 5 or 6 grenades, and then go to Star Junction (Times Square) in Algonquin and steal a bus(there seems to be a lot of them parked there). Drive to the Algonquin Expressway and park your bus sideways in a narrow spot on the bridge. Make sure that it's a tight fit, so that no cars can drive around you. Wait until 10 cars pile up, start at the bus, and run down the line of cars... dropping grenades (don't stop running!). That should unlock your cheevo pretty quickly!
King Of Qub3d is attained by playing one of the arcade games found around the city. They are pretty popular, but I can only think of 2 or 3. One is located in the strip club in Bohan, the other in the Modo clothing store in North Algonquin. Just play for 10 minutes or so, and beat the high score of 10,000 points. It's really easy, it just takes a few minutes.
Finally, Rolled Over is one of the more entertaining ch330z to attempt. It's not OVERLY difficult, but it can take a few tries (4 for me). Get yourself a police car or taxi car (they are fast and relatively durable) and head to Francis International Airport. Gain speed on the runway, and veer towards the grassy section in between the runway and the tarmac. There are some yellow warning signs that are shaped like triangles(how convenient). Aim for those at high speed, hitting the "A" button and turning left or right just as you hit the jump. This should only take a few tries, and if you wreck your car there are plenty of police cruisers chasing you around, any of them would work. Here is a video to help you on your way.
Old Skool Back to Back-Scored 2 Tetrises in 2 drops playing Marathon-50G
Ludicrous speed-Cleared a line on Level 15-30G
T-Spin Deluxe-Pulled off a T-Spin 2-Line Clear playing Marathon-30G
Rollin On Spinnas-Pulled off the infamous T-Spin playing Marathon-15G
Back to Back and Back Again-Did three Tetrises or T-Spins (Single or Double) in a row (Back to Back to Back) playing Marathon-25G
It's fucking Tetris. If you don't know how to play Tetris, then I don't know what to tell you. I will give you one tip for something that would only be known to Tetris nerds. This is a video of how to complete a T-spin. Figuring this basic(retarded) move out will get you a Back to Back and Back Again, T-spin Deluxe, and Rollin On Spinnas.
That is it for this week cheevoholics! I'm currently gearing up for another go at Condemned 2, more Tetris Evolution, Rainbow Six: Vegas (1) and working on some of those sweet ass cheevz that GTA4 is still denying me.
