Achievements of the Week – The Adept Hero with a Snake Tongue Edition

No surprises here! Most of the Achievements for this round of Achievements of the Week come from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I’ve given it as much love and time as I can during a workweek, but one can literally play that game for hours and not technically get much accomplished. Currently around level 18 and trying to figure out how to get into the Thieves Guild. But the Achievements have been coming steadily and somewhat easily, unlocking 15 more since last we met. And Tara and I did manage to play an hour or so of the new LEGO Harry Potter, Years 5-7. Two games on a weekly roundup is more exciting than one. It’s true; look it up.

And here we go!

From LEGO Harry Potter, Years 5-7…

Just two so far from completing early levels in the game. Nothing special save for the fact that one is called Albus Percival Wulfric Brian. And yes, to me, that’s very special. A Muggle like you wouldn’t understand.

From The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim…


Dragon Soul (10G): Absorb a dragon soul


Hard Worker (10G): Chop wood, mine ore, and cook food

Of these three jobs, I only ever cook food on a regular basis. The other two were one-time affairs, as the animation for each of them is painfully boring to watch, and then you have to go sell your wood or find a use for your ore. When it comes to food, I know just what to do the moment it’s cooked to perfection: om nom nom.


Adept (10G): Reach Level 10


Snake Tongue (10G): Successfully persuade, bribe, and intimidate

Unlike Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas, there’s no way to know if a persuade or intimidate attempt will be successful. It’s more like Dragon Age: Origins, and you just have to rely on a wing and a prayer for the right turnout. I’ve failed both on different occasions, and only bribed once to trick an evil priest into believing a lie.

Don’t want to overload this post with pic after pic of Skyrim Achievements, even though I totally could. I also bought a house in Whiterun, did at least 50 miscellaneous tasks earning Lohgahn that esteemed title of Hero of the People, did some nasty work for a Daedric prince, and completed a few more quests related to the main storyline.

Well, that’s that. Expect more Achievements next week from these very same games. I don’t see myself playing many other Xbox 360 games right now, not until my thirst for collecting cheese wheels has been quenched. And maybe not even then.

How’d y’all do this week? Any Achievements you’re especially proud of? Speak up in the comments below. And when I say speak up, I mean speak up. If you don’t write in, I can’t hear you. I promise to comment back, too.

  1. I picked up Gears of War 3 this week and have been playing that non-stop. It’s been a blast so far.

    Can’t wait to get ahold of Skyrim, though that probably won’t be until Christmas. Too many damn games to play right now.

    • Way too many games! Other titles that will have to sadly wait are Skyward Sword, Saints Row 3, that new Mario game for the 3DS, and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. Oh man…

  2. Ahhh, Skyrim, I have two characters my first play through I fell in love with being able to straight up smite someone like a god with electricity or crisp em up with some flamage and a sword in hand. Did the main quest with this guy very disappointing but the mask I got from the dragon priest was uber nice for my war mage. After that I wanted to go straight melee and now my second character wields double scimitars with light armor and is dead quick. Real hard not to go back to the magic but I am managing it, somehow lol.
