Over the Christmas break, I installed an addon called “AchievementSnap,” an addon that would take a screenshot every time I received an achievement!  I figured this would be a great way to catalog my adventures through Azeroth and I was right.  Of course, I forgot to add it right before I got my “Merrymaker” achievement, but that’s a-okay.

I looked at these screenshots and wanted to share them with you guys, but that gave me a great idea – why not share these achievements and the best way to complete them!?  Brilliant!  So let’s get into it.

Oh, and clicking on each picture takes you to a full-screen shot of everything that was going on when it happened, in case you’re interested.

The only way to get this is to find any barber shop and get a haircut!

Two bits!

Barber shops can be found in Stormwind, Ironforge, Ogrimmar, Undercity, Netherstorm (Area 52 and Cosmowrench) and Dalaran.  Get any haircut, facial detail change or hair color change and voila! Achievement achieved.

Check out the rest of my recent achievements (and tips to get them) under the cut…

Well, some of you have probably decided to level up that Death Knight, or if you’re like me, you’ve decided to make it your main.  Questing as a DK is rather easy, since almost every quest (including some of the “Bring Three Friends!” quests) is soloable.  But eventually, you’re going to hit an instance.  Do you know what to do as a DK DPS?  Probably.  But here are some helpful hints and Boss tips that I’ve found rather helpful.  This is for NORMAL RUNS, since that’s the only version I’ve done before.

Quick thing I ran across while checking my achievements, but xbox.com has a good collection of tips for Left 4 Dead. The most important:

Whether playing cooperatively or just with the A.I., there’s no more important strategy than simple teamwork. Specifically, no player can freelance on their own away from the other survivors. You’re most vulnerable to Smoker, Hunter, and Boomer attacks when separated. Always move together, taking the time to talk through where you’re heading so no one veers off from the group on accident.

Ok, back to work, but check out the rest of the tips here.

Hi everyone – I’m super busy this week so you may see a slowdown in midday updates (but I’ll still try to get you some original content each night) but I didn’t want to leave you guys hanging. 2008 was a pretty good year for games, but 2009 has some wicked potential. We’re getting killer sequels like God of War III, Godfather 2, CoD Modern Warfare 2, Street Fighter IV, both Halo Wars and Halo: ODST and some pretty cool originals like Ghostbusters and Brutal Legend.

I wish I had time to preview these for you myself, but alas I don’t get paid to do this and the paper is piling up at my desk. So, instead, check out this article for a solid preview of everything we have to look forward to in the coming year.
