Halloween Achievement Reminders

By Kelly Packard,
Halloween is a time for kids to dress up in a costume of their favorite character, collect candy and have a school party. It's also a time for grown-up achievement hunters to play Saw 2: Flesh & Blood, visit two locations in the Halo universe and spend precious moments with Batman's Calendar Man.

We know it might be getting a little late for some regions, so if it is, remember you can temporarily change your console's time zone to still receive the achievement with that coveted time stamp.

There are two achievements for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. You can double dip on this set of achievements if you happen to own the Chinese version of the game. To obtain the first, load up the Halo 3 map Valhalla and view a date-specific sigil on the large stone wall that borders one side of the map. You have to view two separate sigils on two different dates, so perhaps you've already viewed one before and will be able to unlock the achievement today. If not, you'll need to revisit the map on one of the other seven dates.

For the second achievement, start a private match on the Halo 2 map Zanzibar. Here you only have to view one of the many seasonal signs located in the water on the beach.

This wouldn't be a holiday achievement reminder post without a mention of the Calendar Man, would it? October 31st marks one of the 12 necessary dates to go see the Calendar Man in the basement of the court house in Batman: Arkham City. We add one more platform this year thanks to Xbox One's Batman: Return to Arkham Collection, in addition to the PC and Xbox 360 versions. Only 2% of you have this one so far on the Xbox One version, so make us proud!

Last but not least, we come to Saw 2: Flesh & Blood's secret achievement entitled "It must be SAW." All you have to do is load up the main menu of the game and press "START" to meet the achievment's requirement of playing the game on Halloween. Voila! Achievement unlocked.
