This Week In Ch33v0z, The Level Grind Edition

It's ch33v0 time once again, and as we all know... with great cheevz, brings great responsibility... or something. Anyway, the ch33v harvest is in, and I've got a standout this week: Too Human, turns out it's a cheevo-fountain in disguise! The ch33vz have been flowing mightily from that title, and while I manage to squeak out a couple more for the week, you aren't going to see much variety. Now for the main event, my week in cheevz.

Battlefield: Bad Company

Colonel-Reached Rank 20-25G

I'm still totally loving this game. Which, if you remember I purchased from Gamefly, without this service I never would have given Battlefield a second chance. This weeks BF:BC cheev was acquired through lots of multiplayer goodness.

Castle Crashers

Melee Is Best-Defeat any boss without using any magic-15G

It's finally here! Castle Crashers has finally made it to the console! It's a Hack-n-Slash-fest of goodness. There isn't much more to say, other than I haven't had much time with it, there is 4 player co-op and you can RIDE TINY DEER! That's right, the deer are sweet and riding them is the shit.

Melee Is Best can be achieved on your very first boss. Just make sure to use the X and Y buttons, and resist the urge to use your super awesome magic powers. Shouldn't take too long, the first boss is fairly easy.

Too Human

The Final Strike-Kill 100 enemies with finishers-10G

Hero to the Aesir-Achieved Hero status (Level 30)-30G

Bane to Goblins-2,500 Goblins defeated-30G

Too Human, the cheev cow of the week! I've milked many sweet cheevoz from this game, and there are still many more to go! Not only does this game offer up a wealth of sweet cheevz, it's also so much damn fun. Most of Too Human's ch33v0z will unlock with normal play, some even without knowing what you did, but here are a few that would benefit from explanation.
The Final Strike can be obtained relatively easily. It requires you to kill 100 enemies using a "finisher". Now, I'm a guy, so I don't read instructions... but a finisher can be performed by pushing both the left thumbstick, and right thumbstick simultaneously towards an enemy. Each enemy killed counts to your total.

Fenrir's Bite will not only give you a cheevo, but a sweet ass attack in the game(a weapon that will do all the dirty work for you). It's the very last item on the skill tree, and once you assign a point to it, the cheev will unlock. The Call Of Battle is done in the same fashion, but a little higher up on the skill tree.

One God Enters, One God Leaves... shouldn't be hard to get, it's just finding the secret areas that will be tough... but don't worry, there are tons and you'll probably get this one by accident.

Trial Of Ascendance was the most confusing, but again, it's probably in the instructions but who needs that? You'll collect these "runes", each rune has a quest attached to it(example: Kill 100 enemies). Once the quest is completed, you can insert "charms" completing the rune and activating it's power. It's all very nerdy, and I'm a little sad that I actually know all this... I digress, by finishing your first level 1 rune, you will unlock this cheevo.

That is all, folks! I'm beginning to drown in video games, last week I didn't even get a chance to play my Gamefly offerings. I'm still hanging on to Frontlines: Fuel Of War (A.K.A. Not as good as Battlefield) and Conan(A.K.A. boring compared to Too Human). Soon we will all be inundated with the holiday glut of games, and who knows what I will do then... my cup runneth over, again.
