Rise of the Tomb Raider Xbox One/Xbox 360 Achievements Revealed

Microsoft has published the full list of achievements for upcoming Xbox timed-exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider. As with lists of this nature, there are some spoilers here, especially in the “hidden” achievement category. So if you’re looking to totally avoid spoilers, you may not want to look.

My favorite achievement would probably have to be “Rotisserie,” which you’ll earn after shooting a chicken out of the air with a fire arrow. This achievement list also seems to confirm that Rise of the Tomb Raider will not have a traditional multiplayer mode, as no achievements mention multiplayer.

Click through the images below to see all of Rise of the Tomb Raider’s achievements and what they’re worth.

Rise of the Tomb Raider launches November 10 for Xbox One and Xbox 360. The Crystal Dynamics-developed action-adventure game is coming to PC and PlayStation 4 in 2016. For more, check out GameSpot’s recent preview, “Like Father, Like Daughter.”

Rainbow Six Siege Beta Is 1080p on PS4, 900p on Xbox One

The ongoing Rainbow Six Siege closed beta is running at 1080p on PlayStation 4 and 900p on Xbox One, Ubisoft confirmed in a FAQ posted to the game’s website. The PC edition’s resolution, meanwhile, will fluctuate between 720p and 1080p depending on how beefy your rig is (see system requirements here).

These figures are for the game as it currently stands in closed beta. Final performance could be better. “We’re still looking to push the hardware as much as possible in order to deliver a quality experience for players and will be able to share more about the final resolution once we’re closer to release date,” Ubisoft said.

The Siege closed beta began on September 24 and runs through September 28. To get in, you’ll need to preorder the game or acquire a key through other means.

It was also confirmed today, during a panel at Europe’s EGX convention attended by whatculture, that Siege will not offer “a story mode per se.” That’s according to art director Scott Mitchell.

“There is no story mode per se,” Mitchell explained. “You go through training, where you get to experience different operators and their devices. You can play against enemy AI in co-op through all the maps. You can customize matches, so that’s what we’re offering on the single-player side of things.”

This is not to say Siege won’t offer any single-player. Back in June, Ubisoft announced that Siege will have “scenario-based missions” similar to those seen in past Rainbow Six games. “Each scenario is designed with single-player in mind, though all of them can be played in co-op,” Ubisoft said at the time. “As with the Hostage Rescue mode revealed at E3 last year, there’s no respawning; if you go down once, you’re down for good.”

Siege was originally slated to launch in October, but it was recently delayed to December. Ubisoft has high hopes for Siege, as the publisher said back in May that the game has the potential to become the company’s best-selling FPS ever, surpassing Far Cry 4. At the time, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said the game’s replayability “will be key to the game’s success.”

Samsung will pay you up to $120 for buying a Galaxy S6, Note 5 on an installment plan

Despite making some of its very best smartphones this year, Samsung has faced an uphill battle convincing customers to buy devices like the Galaxy S6 and Note 5. The company has already cut the price of its flagship S6 and S6 Edge just months after launch, and now the company is launching a new promotion in the US to hopefully get a few more customers to part with their cash.

Under the new promotion, Samsung will pay your the rest of your monthly payments in 2015 towards a new Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, or Galaxy Note 5. That means you’ll get up to $120 off the price of any of those phones if you buy one under a carrier installment plan now through October 9th. Not every US carrier is participating, however: AT&T users will have to…

Sprint won't bid in major FCC spectrum auction next year, says it has enough

Earlier this year, the government spent a lot of time convincing TV broadcasters to give up wireless spectrum to cell carriers, who forked over a lot of money for those airwaves. The wireless networks are expected to shell out even more money for more spectrum at the beginning of next year.

Sprint, the fourth-place carrier among the United States’ big four, says it won’t be participating in that auction. In a statement issued Saturday, CEO Marcelo Claure said that “Sprint’s focus and overarching imperative must be on improving its network and market position in the immediate term.”

Marvel's Jessica Jones isn't a morning person in latest Netflix teaser

If you know anything about Marvel’s Jessica Jones, it’s that she’s not your typical superhero. Fortunately, that’s not stopping her from getting her very own show on Netflix. The streaming site has just released the first true teaser for the upcoming show, and it makes no secret of the fact that Jessica Jones (played by Krysten Ritter) is no Goody Two-shoes.

The show picks up after Jessica Jones retires from being a superhero and opens up her own detective agency in New York. From the clip, it looks like this newly-minted PI isn’t much of a morning person, though she still has her superhuman strength.

Jessica Jones is the second of four Marvel shows exclusive Netflix. She, along with Daredevil, will eventually join Luke Cage and Iron…
