Xbox 360 Achievements Spills Over Into UK Mags This Month

In order to champion those beloved achievements and further the name of our brand outside the webisphere, it is with great pleasure that we can proudly reveal that we’ve teamed up with Future UK’s Xbox World to do a monthly column on achievements in their magazine.

Titled, The Over Achiever, and written by yours truly, each month we’ll take a look at one of the biggest releases and pick apart its achievement list at the seams – you know, like we always do. We’ll discuss how long it’s going to take you, potential pitfalls and then rant like a madman on copious amounts of speed and ecstasy… so yeah, nothing new there!

This month’s magazine, on shelves now, will see us pick apart Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s achievement list in detail, before offering a few tidbits of info and opinion on three other lists from around the achievement world, like Child of Eden, FEAR 3 and Duke Nukem Forever.

Next month? Gears of War 3 comes under the microscope and as always, we don’t hold back. To read what we have to say on various triple-A achievement lists and more, don’t forget to check out Xbox World in the UK every month starting today.

Now all we need is an iPhone friendly version of the site so we can check while sitting on the couch playing the xBox.

Agree with #5 - would be nuts for an xbox site not to have an windows phone based app...

Kudos to you and the site good sir, well deserved and long over do... yet something else I'll have to import. Now if I might make a suggestion for the March 2012 achievement list... wait I forgot to whom I speak I know you'll make the right selection for the March game.

Congrats to Webb.

Would love to read it, but I'm an Edge-subscriber and reading two foreign magazines a month is simply too expensive :(

Ain't there no way to read this column on the web? ;)

he was replying to someone about iPhone site issues, a WP7 app would help, plus site works perfectly on WP7, this message is posted from mine :P

It would be nice though, to have a news stream, & achievement updates to my phone without having to load the page from my favourites

Just like to give my gratitiude to this site.

It's active news update, in-depth achievement guides and like-minded community have served as a valuable resource to a great deal of gamers out there. This website has been run remarkably well over the years.

Top job there good sir! All the best with that. Also, a Blackberry app would rock out. I have no internet in home and rely on my Blackberry to view your site, and have problems loading some pages as I live in a remote area with a crappy signal.
