Celebrate July 4th With Several Date Specific Achievements

By Rebecca Smith, 3 months ago
July 4th is, of course, Independence Day in the US and is a day that most Americans will spend celebrating in any way they see fit. It's also a day that seems to be really popular with games that include date-specific achievements, and there are three games making use of this tomorrow. If playing games seems like your ideal way of celebrating, perhaps consider putting in one of the following titles.

Calendar Man

First, you'll want to head into Batman: Arkham City to pay another visit to Calendar Man. Calendar Man can be found in the basement of the Solomon Wayne Courthouse. You gain access to the Courthouse near the beginning of the game. If you do so, he'll tell you a story and you can cross off another of those 12 murderous dates needed for the following achievement:

Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360)StorytellerThe Storyteller achievement in Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360) worth 28 pointsHave 12 murderous dates with Calendar Man

Batman: Arkham City (PC)StorytellerThe Storyteller achievement in Batman: Arkham City (PC) worth 38 pointsHave 12 murderous dates with Calendar Man

Secondly, you'll need to play and complete a single game in You Don't Know Jack for the following achievement:

The final achievement is in Halo: The Master Chief Collection. By entering Halo 3's Valhalla map in Forge mode, in a custom game or in multiplayer matchmaking, you can view the BBQ at Bob's Place sigil and you can cross off one of the two different sigils needed for the following achievement:

Halo: The Master Chief Collection (CN)Elder SignsThe Elder Signs achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection (CN) worth 25 pointsHalo 3: View 2 different sigils on Valhalla.

July is quite a busy time for date specific achievements and there will be several others popping up throughout the month. We'll be sure to remind you about those nearer the time. You can either keep your eyes peeled to TA's front page for those articles, or subscribe to the Achievement Reminders news category to receive PMs or e-mails every time we remind you about those pesky achievements.
