Helldivers Has Some Great Achievements

Yeah, I know, they're called trophies on PlayStation. Achievements, trophies... whatever you want to call them, Helldivers has some of the funniest I've seen in a while.

Take the one in the gif up top, called "Dancing Queen".

Every time I'm playing with someone new, I stop everything on the bridge and tell them to start twirling their right thumbstick. Last night, Patricia and I stood on the bridge of my ship for a few minutes while she tried to twirl 25 times in a row, cracking up. It's harder than you might think!

Or how about this one:

I have a soft spot for achievements that can only be earned on certain days of the week, and also for terrible/amazing pop tunes, so this works out well.

The basic achievements for a few "firsts" tell a funny story:

And of course, there are a couple Starship Troopers references in there:

Then again, joking about escort missions doesn't make them any less onerous...

...though I guess that Brian Fantana reference makes it a little better.

We've seen games go the extra mile with achievements in the past; Gunpoint and The Stanley Parable come to mind. Glad to see Helldivers following in the grand tradition.

    I want to play this so much, but dont have many PS friends to play it with, woe

      From my experience with it so far the matchmaking is pretty good. Most players I have played with seemed pretty switched on.

        Well it is more for the silliness, Magika was a lot more fun with friends because the team kills were more funny than frustrating as they were with strangers

    I was just looking at this on the PS store last night wondering what it was. Looks good.

    great game, brutal to solo, but very good none the less
