  6. I will admit that for the first few years I was playing on Xbox I didn't pay attention to those achievements that popped up on the bottom of my screen. Sure, I knew they meant I just completed some task, but I wasn't out chasing that little ding and trying to get every game I played to 100%. But then a few people I gamed with commented about my low gamerscore, so I decided to see what I could do to improve it. It turns out if you have the time, and a little extra money, you can jump your gamerscore by about 20,000 points in a single weekend. You read that right, 20 K, and the best part is you don't even have to be that good of a player to do it. I have completed all the titles within, and many can attest to my mediocre gaming skill set. In order for you to get the maximum score in the shortest amount of time it will help if you have an Xbox One and an Xbox 360, or at least access to one. You can grab most of the 360 titles used on disc with some searching brick and mortar stores, or just order them from the internet. Once you are done with them you can add them to your collection, trade them back in, resell them to other achievement hunters, or trade them to a friend who needs a boost. The Xbox One games are available digitally, and once you buy them, they are yours forever, so you will want to check the weekly Xbox sales for these titles as you will probably only play the game once. Also before you start playing, if you are going to try and boost your score quickly, you should also check out achievement hunting websites like TrueAchievements.com or XboxAchievements.com - these sites will show you what achievements are in each game, and how to grab them quickly. Now for the Xbox 360 Titles : 10 K, about 18 hours Avatar - The Last Airbender : 5 - 10 minutes to complete Backyard Football 2010 : 2 hours to complete Backyard Sports - Rookie Rush : 2 hours to complete Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons : 2-3 hours to complete College Hoops 2K6 : 2 hours to complete Contrast : 2 hours to complete Forza Horizon 2 - The Fast & the Furious : 2 hours to complete Major Legue Baseball 2K6 : 2 hours to complete NBA 2K6 : 2 hours to complete NHL 2K6 : 2 hours to complete Xbox One Games : 13 K, about 21 hours #IDARB : 2 hours to complete Another World - 20th Anniversary Edition : Under 1 hour to complete Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons : 2-3 hours to complete Contrast : 2 hours to complete Cubot : under 1 hour to complete Contrast : 2 hours to complete Energy Cycle : under 1 hour to complete Forza Horizon 2 - The Fast & the Furious : 2 hours to complete NBA 2K17 - The Prelude : 1 hour to complete Pneuma - Breath of Life : 2-3 hours to complete The Bunker : 2 hours to complete The Little Acre : 2 hours to complete Three Fourths Home : 2 hours to complete This is by no means a complete list of easy achievement games, but it does contain many of the quickest ones. As an added bonus, the games that are on the list also have good stories, are fun to play, and don't require a lot of grinding. You can also complete each title in one sitting without much difficulty. If you are looking for games that you can complete easily but will take up a bit more time, I can add a list of those as well.

  9. Downward Spiral: Prologue Downward Spiral is a VR Specific Game which can be purchased from Steam and found at http://store.steampowered.com/app/574940/ Developed and Published by 3rd Eye Studios Oy LTD. ABOUT THIS GAME (Direct information from Steam Game Link) Downward Spiral: Prologue is inspired by 70’s sci-fi movies and modern TV series; it’s the most immersive journey in VR, has distinct style, intense deathmatch, gunpowder smelling action in zero gravity and mystery you have never experienced before. It’s the first game released using new innovative way of moving freely in VR space without players suffering from motion sickness. Built by award winning industry veterans. Features: -3 game modes: Solo, Co-Op and Deathmatch -Intense Deathmatch in zero gravity for up to 8 players -15-30 minutes long Journey mode, the most immersive journey ever, especially in online in co-op -New Innovative way to move freely in VR without suffering motion sickness -Play with or without room-scale -Music by lead singer and composer of HIM, Ville Valo. Downward Spiral: Prologue is the first installment of very ambitious Downward Spiral Anthology Series. Every game will have different main characters, story and setting but are knitted together with the unsettling backstory which will open episode after episode. Initial Thoughts From RealHorsePlay! Downward Spiral: Prologue is an anti-gravity VR experience. This game does a great job at making you feel like you're in space with both it's design, and the way you have to get around. It's different having to control yourself by pushing off of walls/rails around you, but I enjoy it. Being able to explore an abandoned space station, finding very little here and there, left me curious. I wanted to keep playing and to discover what it was that had happened. Overall, I had a great time with what I was able to play and would go deeper into the game if I could! My only personal issue is that my body is not used to the movement that you have to do in this game. When your brain knows it's standing, but the eyes make it think that it's moving, can feel a little weird at first. I think this is a great game!

  14. Like some Xbox players, I have been trying to find a reason to really love my Kinect. When I first got my 360 I was thinking it was going to be great, but more and more I was disappointed by the games that utilized it. It was a gimmick for than anything. And the system integration has been sketchy at best. It has become more of a quicker way to turn my system off as I am cleaning up for the night, than a gaming tool. I will occassionally use it record some of my semi-par game play, but that is about it. Very few companies even pay attention to the Kinect these days, which is why I keep an eye out for new releases from Virtual Air Guitar Company. Their games draw you into the game with camera and allow you control the action with the motion sensors. Their newest release is no different. Air Guitar Warrior for Kinect lets you live out your rock god fantasies while never leaving the comfort of your home. As the title suggests you will pick up you invisible axe and battle waves of enemies. Your skill and technique will directly impact your performance, but don't fret, you don't have to actually be able to play to do well. There are four distinctly different attacks that depend on your hand placement on the neck of the "guitar" and how fast you strum. Hand placement decides on if you are playing lead or rhythm and your strumming speed will vary between fast and slow. The catch is that each part has a limited amount of ammo, so you can't just constantly use strong attacks, or attacks that are weaker but have a larger damage radius. You will have to vary your attacks if you want to clear levels with 100% efficency and your health in tact. The game is at heart a side scrolling shooter. You will mount anything from a dinosaur to a viking ship or and eagle and enemies start to attack as the hard rocking original soundtrack plays in the background. You will play along and shoot foes down before they have a chance to get close enough to attack you. You don't earn points through out each level, but at the end of the level you are shown the number of each type of enemy you dispatched and give you a level completion percentage. You will also gain XP which levels up you character. The game is divided into albums, each of which has 5 tracks. There are 4 levels and one final album boss. Once you complete all 10 albums, you can replay them on a higher difficulty. As you progress through the campaign you will also unlock new guitars that have different firing abilities. Some are tied to the albums that you playing, others just look really cool. Either way, the new weapons add to the replay value of the game as you can try to best all the levels with each one. The kinect integration into the game is pretty much seemless. You will appear on screen in all of your rocking glory. The strumming and hand positions are picked up without an issue. Navigating the menu between albums can be a little clunky at times, but works with the kinect or you can just flick your controller once or twice. Also since you are playing guitar and not moving around, the kinect only really needs to pick up your upper torso so the game doesn't require you to have a large space cleared. An added bonus of this game is that if you wear any sort of fitness tracking device on the wrist of your strumming hand you will rack up a nice little workout when you play. Air Guitar Warrior for Kinect is a fun game for all of those that like to rock out on their imaginary guitars when nobody is looking. It can also double as a light exercise program. You can grab it at the Xbox store for $19.99. The title is a little pricey, but I have to admit that it is a fun game to just pick up and play for 5 - 10 minutes when you need to unwind. But you may also find yourself jamming out for an hour and stopping only when your body says you need to take a break. 8/10

  16. It is that time once again, May is just around the corner which means Operation Supply Drop will be kicking off their Military Appreciation Fundraising campaign. The first leg of the campaign has already begun with a limited t-shirt hosted by Teespring! 100% of the proceeds go directly to support the OSD mission. Act quickly as this shirt will only be available for 7 days so be sure to pick up yours before its too late. The shirt is available in the following colors: gray, red, purple, white, and green. We think the green looks pretty awesome, but we may be a little biased. The design consists of the American flag with the words #WEAREOSD layed into the bottom two stripes. This hashtag represents the family that Operation Supply Drop has built. #WEAREOSD stands for the unity between the organization and its dedicated membership. Front Towards Gamer is proud to be a direct result of that loving relationship. We wouldn't be here without it. Visit the Teespring campaign here and pick yours up today!

  21. Artifex Mundi has once again reached into their vast library of hidden object puzzle games and released one on consoles. Dark Arcana : The Carnival is no ordinary trip to the circus, but when was the last time you had a normal day? You arrive at a traveling carnival to speak with a fellow police office standing next to a young girl. Her mother was kidnapped while they were visiting the carnival and it is up to you to save her and discover what is really going on under the big top. But as soon as you walk into the venue something seems very out of place, but exactly what is not obvious right away. Once again you are treated to a story filled with twists and turns as you work your way through this point and click adventure. Not only will you have to deal with hidden object puzzles but there are also a wide variety of puzzle and mini ga,es that you will have to deal with to unravel the mystery. Like previous games you can skip puzzles that are too difficult for you, and there is an option to the hidden object games. This time it is a card matching game called Monte Carlo, where to clear hidden objects you must match like adjacent cards with specially marked cards. The graphics in the game are on par with the rest of the catalogue of games. Each location is skillfully depicted and is an interesting mix of mystery and macabre. The music and sound effects escalate the level of suspense throughout the game. The hidden object layouts are well done and will cause you to have a keen eye, but not pull your hair out looking for obscure named items. No matter your skill level you will get several hours worth of game play out of this title. There is the main story and an epilogue to complete. If you are going to 100% the game, it will require at least 2 play throughs of the main story and 1 of the epilogue. Considering the sticker price of the game is $9.99, you will more than get your money out of it. 7/10
