This weeks easiest achievement is this one:

The More I See (5 points)
Complete the Tutorials

Everyone knows that the Tutorials on Guitar Hero games are the easiest things in the world.

This weeks hardest achievement is:

Battery (30 points)
You scored 1,000,000 on the song Battery as a band

Even if you are epic at the game, the chances of your team-mates also being just as good is very low, so getting this achievement will take a lot of practice!

And the best achievement this week is this one:

The Peter Moore Achievement (8 points)
Pay homage to one of our generation’s greatest rock performances ever.

Does anyone remember the first time that Rock Band was announced at E3 in 2007 and he accidentally pressed the pause button mid song. Hilarious, and now this achievement devoted itself to that very moment.

And that’s it for this weeks Achievement Weekly, i hoped you’ve enjoyed reading it, and now it’s time to get out there and get some achievements! If you have any feedback/improvements you want to see, feel free to email me at [email protected]

Next weeks issue will have Riddick, Godfather 2 and Ninja Blade. And the arcade game Flock. See you then!
