When you wake up on the 25th there’s a good chance one of the following games is gonna be under your tree; unless you’re not Christian, in which case you already bought and beat it. Either way, you’re gonna want some tips in your never-ending quest to humiliate all the scrubs online who keep getting lucky and embarrassing you. Good news, we’ve got a huge batch of multiplayer tips and strategies for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Halo: Reach and Black Ops right here, including a cool new Achievement video guide for Black Ops. So sit back, pour some Egg Nog (or other non-holiday related beverage) and read up, because the only thing worse than coal in your stocking is an embarrassing kill/death ratio.
Halo: Reach's new Noble map pack DLC has arrived, and as usual, knowing your surroundings is essential. Learning a new map is usually the most painful part of playing an FPS online because while you're trying to study the layout and memorize where everything is you're getting shot in the head and stabbed to death.
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
As far as multiplayer goes, AC:B has got some very cool ideas. Unlike the straightforward deathmatch play in Uncharted 2 and other 3rd person games, Assassin's Creed manages to blend the stealth aspects of the main game in with its multiplayer in a way that doesn't suck. No small feat! Much like the Spy from Team Fortress 2, it's important to act like you're not a ruthless killer out for blood, check out the guide and get some tips on how to play it cool and make the most of your abilities.
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Listen, you're really going to want the Pro Perks, they're really good. Problem is, they take quite a while to get, especially if you're trying to get them all. Some are better than others, but it all depends on your character build; making a sniper? You're gonna want Ninja Pro. Want crazy sites and an under barrel shotgun? You're gonna need Warlord Pro. Our handy guide will help you track down the ones you want and show you how to get them as quickly as possible. On top of that, make sure to check out the video Achievements and Trophies guide so you can grab the trickier ones.
