This Week In Ch33v0z, The FarCry Of Solace Edition

Another week has passed, and I've managed to put up a post! w00t! Let's make a habit of sticking with a schedule! This week finds some more awesome Fallout cheevz, a few new ones in Far Cry and the fond (not so fond) farewell to Quantum Of Solace. Ok, on to the cheevz.

Quantum Of Solace

Again, not having a great time with the game. Also, the story is so terrible that I wasn't paying attention and when the game ended, I was surprised. So that was a pleasant surprise. Unfortunately, just playing through the single player didn't net a lot of cheevoz. So I went back and picked up a few of the easy 15 pointers. Here are the ones you need to know about.

Octopussy, ok no tips here... but it's funny. I mean, you get the Octopussy cheevo for beating the game on easy! hahaha! Octopussies!

I Admire Your Courage is the worst one, becaue you have to play online matches against other people. Why is that bad? Try the online... it's crap. Anyway, you'll receive money for each match depending on how well you do. This should take anywhere from 5-15 matches. Get on it.

He's Coming Fast! Those words have been uttered many a time in my life... by chicks... that I'm currently banging. I digress, this cheevo is picked up in the Sink Hole level. There are a few choppers, and it will be clear which one you have to get. Towards the end of the level there will be a gunship with a gunner crew attacking you and pinning down your NPC partner. Just pick up the sniper rifle that they provide you, and shoot the pilot without killing any of the gunners. Play on easy or you'll be doing this one all day.

Again, not much can be said in the way of tips for this game... since you get cheevos for completing quests. Though, I would like to point out that I'm an evil bastard, and I love every minute of it. Also, since it's the new year I would like to declair this game my Game of the Year. That's right, no fan fare, no big post about it. Just there. Booyah.

Supply...-Unlocked new weapons by hitting a Convoy-10G

Lineman-Completed a Mission intercepted from a cellular tower signal-20G

My patience is wearing quite thin with this game. It's complete crap. Not the graphics or the gameplay, but the story and the constant fucking driving! I fucking hate driving from place to place with nothing to keep you company but the GPS unit that doesn't even fucking work right! Not to mention, every single fucking intersection has a guard post! Not only that, but they shoot on sight! They shoot before they can even see me! Also, if I have to get out of my car and kill all the motherfuckers, I don't want a new group of assholes in the SAME SPOT 5 minutes later. I find this to be the most annoying thing in the game. AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Anyway, the cheevs do not flow very well from this game. Which is not a good thing for me. So here are a couple that I felt were stupid and should be explained.

Upgraded Player refers to the online multiplayer portion of the game. You'll play the game, and depending on how well you play you'll get experience that is put towards your level. You'll also receive diamonds that you can use to purchase weapons packages. Each weapons package has three slots for diamonds, once you spend a diamond to fill each slot you've completed that package and will get this cheevo.

Goodnight Sweet Prince came about by accident. You'll receive a buddy rescue from time to time during the game. When you become overwhelmed by the enemy and lose all of your health, your buddy will come and save you at that spot. It's kind of like a second chance. If your buddy takes too much damage, he will go down and you'll have to pick him up. If you leave him on the ground for an extended period of time, or he gets downed 3 times... he won't make it. You'll have to attend to him and either ease his passing with an overdose of morphine or a bullet to the brain. Don't worry, he'll ask for it... but don't save your game because once he's dead... he's fucking dead forever.

So that's it for this week! I've complete Quantum of Solace and sent that bad boy packing! Next up from Gamefly? Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway. I've heard it hands the cheevz out pretty readily, but is a horrible game. We will see. I'll also be working on Far Cry 2, until I decide it's too annoying and send that back as well. That's it for this week, kids. And remember, keep your eyes open, the cheevos are everywhere!

I really enjoyed fallout 3... I played it through 3 times as a matter of fact... different character types and all that. I guess in March they are raising the level cap to 30... so that's cool. :)
