Phriday Night Phights: Phil is Dead

Don't worry, that's the only time I'll do that with the title. Couldn't resist. I miss my old name and avatar :( No regrets at all though, just a little melancholy. Goodbye you handsome devil. May Chist carry on the legacy of...

Life is Strange: Episode One Achievement guide photo
Life is Strange: Episode One Achievement guide
by Brett Makedonski

It's always great when a game's Achievements exploit the mechanic or feature that the title does best. That's what Life is Strange's set does -- at least for the first episode. Almost everything in episode one can be unlocked through exploration. The sole exception is an Achievement for simply finishing.

The Achievements that might prove difficult are for taking ten optional photos. Life is Strange has a chapter select feature that tells you how many photos in each section remain to be collected. However, make sure to select the option to "play this chapter in collectible mode" which will allow you to hunt without changing any choices you've already made.

Everything from here on out may contain spoilers. Even the images for the Achievements are spoilers in that they give away what needs to be done. I've listed them in the order in which they appear, but I highly recommend playing through once at your own speed before using a guide to clean up.

With all the formalities out of the way, an easy 200 Gamerscore's right around the corner!

Review: Life is Strange: Chrysalis photo
Review: Life is Strange: Chrysalis
by Brett Makedonski

"If I'm not looking through a viewfinder, I'm looking through a window. Always looking."

Max Caulfield, the introspective protagonist of Life is Strange, spends her life searching, observing. Actually, it might be more akin to wandering. She's 18, a newly minted "adult." Everyone keeps telling her how much life has in store for her, but she's more intent on the short-term -- just surviving one awkward social interaction after another.

It's a situation that's easy to empathize with. Everyone's felt the uncertain pangs of adolescence, even the most sure-footed of people. Life is Strange gives the player a chance to walk in those shoes with Max -- to try to avoid the gaze of every set of judgmental eyes, and to skirt confrontational conversation lest things just get even worse. It can be weird and cringe-worthy at times, but, hey, doesn't that nicely sum up those formative years?

Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Havoc
by Chris Carter

Call of Duty map packs are definitely a mixed bag. Fifteen dollars is pricey by any standards, and the prospect of one or two remade maps and a grand total of four arenas isn't anything to get excited about.

Advanced Warfare's new Havoc DLC has just arrived this week on Xbox platforms, and it's par for the course in terms of what you'd expect. As usual though, zombies save the day.

Brothers and #IDARB headline February's Games with Gold photo
Brothers and #IDARB headline February's Games with Gold
by Brett Makedonski

February's a tricky proposition if you're the procrastinating type when it comes to gobbling up your free videogames. A meager 28 days means that you need to get in gear and download the new Xbox Live Games with Gold early. No depending on a 31st to bail your lazy ass out.

Xbox has unveiled next month's Games with Gold, and they're mostly what we've come to expect -- a really good game, an indie title we don't know much about, and some filler. They are Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons, #IDARB, and Sniper Elite V2.

Brothers is the clear standout here, which can be downloaded from February 1-15. I gave it an excellent score a few years ago and managed to still be on the low end of most outlets. I've also got your back if you need help cleaning up the Achievements.

#IDARB is the lone Xbox One game. It's supposed to be zany and fun. Guess you'll have to find out for yourself. Then, there's Sniper Elite V2 bringing up the second half of the month on Xbox 360. By then, you'll probably just be looking forward to March's games.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 brings Barry Burton and Raid mode center stage photo
Resident Evil: Revelations 2 brings Barry Burton and Raid mode center stage
by Alessandro Fillari

Capcom has been on quite a roll lately. With the announcement of Street Fighter V, new releases in the Devil May Cry series coming, and the recent success of its HD Remaster for Resident Evil, it seems like the once troubled publisher has found its way back to the hearts of fans. And with the reveal of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 late last year, it has plenty more in store for fans of the survival horror series.

I got the opportunity to play a decent chunk of Revelations 2 last year, and I was pretty impressed with how the mystery was being brought back to the series. Dabbling into episodic gaming, this installment is set to be released through four episodes; one will release every week from February 24th to March 18th. It's a pretty experimental, and unique take on Resident Evil, and that might be just what the franchise needs.

But just before its debut next month, the folks at Capcom invited me out to get another crack at their experiment. And during my session, I got reacquainted with an old buddy from the series' past, and even got to take the new and improved Raid Mode for a test run.
