Wow! Looks like people got excited with the 1st anniversary and submitted a lot of content for us last month!

That’s awesome guys! It truly boosts our enthusiasm to keep working on this.


This month we have some new and exciting stuff, keep reading…

Quick Overview

What to expect from this issue. First checking what’s new…

What’s new?

PSP First Look

Yeah! That’s exactly what you’re thinking: we’re about to start supporting PlayStation Portable!

Our Nerd Guru Jamiras is still trimming some edges and our brave achievement creators are already testing the new system and working on new sets. PSP will be officially supported soon. Stay tuned!

In the PSP First Look article StingX2 shares with us the achievement sets that will come soon.

Wish This Set

If you’re a typical RANews reader you’re already familiar with the Play-This-Set, right? That’s where people try to convince other members to play an existing set.

Wish this set has a similar purpose, but it’s intended to convince other members to request a game that doesn’t have an achievement set yet.

[For those who don’t know, if a game doesn’t have achievements, you can Request a set for it by clicking in the Request Set link in the game’s page.]


A new segment where community members share their tricks about challenging achievements.

Really cool content produced by our members. There are even videos showing their strategies!


A new segment where we want to poke into the brain of a RA community member with an interview.
