This Week In Ch33v0z, Last Week's Edition

This is the post that should have gone up last Friday, but I didn't post it and that's just how it is. However, I haven't forgotten about all my loyal cheev-hounds... so without further ado, I give you... This..uh... last week in ch33v0z!

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames

Stand Up and Shout-You achieved maximum mood with the Allies-10G

Holy Smoke-You destroyed 50 objects with a grenade-20G

Pipeline-You captured all outposts for a single faction-20G

Hail and Kill-You destroyed 50 objects using melee-20G

The Analog Kid-You recruited Misha-20G

Heavy Metal Thunder-You successfully completed 10 action hijacks-10G

Little Savage-You destroyed 50 objects with an RPG launcher-20G

Forever Free-You achieved maximum P.L.A.V. mood-10G

Armaggedon It-You destroyed 20 buildings-20G

Partners in Crime-You experienced co-op-50G

Oil and Gasoline-You recruited Eva-20G

Gone Shootin'-You completed one of Fiona's challenges-20G

Tattooed Millionaire-You earned $1 million-25G

Balls to the Wall-You mastered the Winching Challenge-20G

Wild One-You recruited Ewan-20G

Dirty Deeds-You achieved maximum Universal Petroleum mood-10G

Mercenaries 2! I've been blowing shit up, and kicking ass all over Venezuela! This a great game, and tons of fun. Not only that, but the cheevz have been flowing freely like the black gold of Venezuela.

Most of the cheevoz that I got this week are due to repetitive actions like destroying X amount of this or killing X amount of those. A couple could use some explanations.

Dirty Deeds, Forever Free, and Stand Up And Shout are awarded for getting a maximum "friendly" rating with each of the different factions. You can achieve this by completing story missions or secondary objectives (HVTs and Priority Targets) or bribing them.

Balls To The Wall is not hard once you understand the point of the exercise. There might be some instructions on screen, but I'm a guy so I don't read that crap. The challenge requires you to raise a red tool box a specified number of meters above the ground. What they don't' tell you is that you need to stack it on one of the objects surrounding it. First grab one of the miscellaneous objects with the winch of the chopper (using left button on the d-pad) and place it in the yellow circle. Then pick up the red tool box and put it on top of said miscellaneous object. Voila.

Castle Crashers

The Traitor-Defeat any boss by playing one of his own minions-20G

LOVE this game... LOVE it.

The Traitor cheevo is attained by using one of the unlocked characters to defeat the associated characters boss. The easiest, fastest way, is to play in the arena. Win one wave in the arena, and you'll unlock a barbarian character. Use this character to defeat the barbarian boss, and booyah... cheevo unlocked.

Battlefield: Bad Company

Darwin's Parachute-There is no parachute, right?-10G

Still loving the Battlefield, still unlocking the sweet cheevos.

Darwin's Parachute is extremely easy, if you can get your hands on a chopper in multiplayer. Just snag a chopper, fly it as high as you can... and hit the B button to exit. As soon as you hit the ground, the cheevo will be yours.

That's pretty much it for last week. I've already started on this week's set of cheevos, so expect them out on time. Mercs 2, some arcade titles and maybe a new game. The surprises never end, and neither does my love for cheevoz.
