Aside from this being a simple contest, it's also a charity event, as the same day the contest starts Unlock the Achievement will be delivering over 100 games to the kids of St. Jude's Research Hospital in Tennessee. You get cool prizes, some brave kids get great games, everybody wins.
The hunt begins Monday, April 21, so make sure to check out UnlockTheAchievement.com for full details. Even better, there are 5 Achievements hiding right here at TGR, so you'd better get them before someone else does. Hurry, what are you waiting for? Go, go, go!
