Hey, to anyone, likely fellow reviewers, have you gotten the "He Ain't Even Married" achievement yet?

It requires you to "Survive a specific section without getting hit." but I can't figure out where. It's the one one I need for 200 GS so I'd love to get some help figuring it out.

I've been wondering about that myself. Granted, I've only gone through a couple of levels...I was hoping it would be something obvious later on. I know some reviewers on another forum who are playing this; I'll try asking them.

Great. :)

I've been trying to get an answer from @Comic_Jumper on Twitter as well, but not getting a response. Might just have to wait for an achievement guide.

I also don't know. But did you try to finish some challenge? You have to beat them without getting hit, but I didn't try them yet. It's definitely not connected to specific parts in missions, when you have to survive part without getting hit for extra cash.

THe picture is that of a drill. I haven't gotten too far but I imagine that the whale looking boss, whatever his name is (Benny?) that you fight in the giant drill machine is the boss fight in question. Now if I could only figure out the whole "Shut Star Up" thing.

Yeah, I also had that idea (I didn't try it yet) but I think that would be pretty hard, because the wires with electricity is impossible to see enough early.

And about Shut Star Up. After you beat Brad in first comic, the Star bites Captain Smiley into his hand and you can punch the star with X. Just keep pressing it. If you didn't get that first time, you will have another change at the end of game - the last mission, again after beating Brad. Star is going to bite again...

That is a good idea, I'm gonna try beating the drill guy now without getting hurt. Only missing the shooting bullets one, and this one. The other achievements I got in one playthrough without really trying.

Edit: just beat benny on the drill without getting hit, and didn't get the achievement. I used a "help" when the second rockets came, because they are flat out annoying and it ended up killing him at the same time. hopefully, using the help didn't cause it to glitch out.

The only response I've received from anyone is "either during the Silver Age comics or towards the end I guess". In other words: they don't know either.

I'm not even done with the Silver Age yet; I keep dying. This isn't really my kind of game, which is too bad because I adore Twisted Pixel.

@Murgatroyd7 - It's more about the humor and dialogue, rather then the gameplay.

@Kyboy - Review copies. Microsoft always hands out review copies insanely early.

Murgatroyd7
10-03-2010, 06:54 AM
Sure, the humor is important, but it should be fun to play a game, don't you think? If a game is so frustrating that you don't want to get through it, the jokes won't be worth it (especially since you could just watch videos online if the gameplay isn't important). And personally, I thought most of the dialog was pretty lame. There were some really funny lines here and there, but I think all of the funniest parts were visual gags.

It's definitely not a bad game and the difficulty is manageable (I never got stuck; just slowed down), but I wish it would've been more fun. The boss battles were great, though. I would've been happy just fighting bosses the whole time. Heh.



Anyway...maybe this is a silly suggestion, but I wonder if this achievement simply ties into one of those don't-get-hit challenges. Wouldn't really explain why the picture has Benny in it, though.

Out of curiosity, how many shots has everyone fired? I held down the trigger for pretty much the entire game, but I only have something like 64,000.

Yeah, I have almost same number. Maybe more. I got few more bullets from challenges. The game is very good. I also had problems from the beginning, because I never played this type of games (2D shooter) and I'm left-handed on them :-). But it was really only about time. It was little bit frustrating, but I still enjoyed every minute with the game.

BTW. Do you remember parody of Kickboxer from Nanoc? :-D

Murgatroyd7
10-04-2010, 01:49 AM
Kickboxer is the movie with the guy that covers his fists with nails or glass, isn't it? That's the only thing I remember from the movie, so I wouldn't have caught any references.

Nope, the first part is from Blood sport, but the main, when Smiley hits Nanoc, is from Kickboxer.

Radical Dylan
10-04-2010, 05:45 AM
Lol, the game was too easy in my opinion. There were parodies all throughout the game. The Benny fight for instance was a clear parody of the movie "Total Recall". I think different people were amused by different parts of the game based on how many of the parodies they could actually catch. Like me for instance, didn't even catch the nanoc parody you guys are talking about.

And I have over 125,000 shots fired. I just replayed the game a second time, while trying to do as much of it without getting hit. Still didn't get the final achievement for surviving a certain part without being hit.

I played through the benny part twice without being hit. Once when using the super power, once with out. No Cheevo.

I got Michael Wilford (@mrwilford) to confirm via Twitter that it is related to the Benny segment:

@pinata242 Heheh, yeah, it's related to Benny. Let me know if you want more of a hint.

That's all I'm going to ask, but if someone else wants to bug him for more info, be my guest ;)

Thank god, I'm not the only one who didn't get the achievement... IT could possibly be getting glitched somehow... or something is counting as a hit, but not registering... or something...

10-05-2010, 04:44 PM
I am also stuck on this achievement. I am trying to beat all the challenges, since they all consist of not getting hit. I have one to go, and I can't beat the darned thing. My plan was to beat them all, then go back and also try that part without getting hit.

pinata242
10-05-2010, 05:10 PM
For those of you that think you did section(s) of the Benny fight without getting hit, did you finish off the level to get the to summary/saving screen? It may not award the achievement until then.

10-05-2010, 06:44 PM
I did that as well pinata. No cheevo

toythatkills
10-05-2010, 09:46 PM
Also beaten Benny hit free, in the same boat achievement wise.

Two ideas:

There's a chance you have to beat Benny first time, maybe. When I've beaten him without being hit it's been after a few restarts to that checkpoint.

Maybe you have to just not be hit at all in that level until you've beaten Benny.

Either way is beyond me though, simply because of the amount of times I'd have to replay that tedious first passage. If someone's got the skills though, worth trying!

(or it's just totally glitched and nowt will work.)

Radical Dylan
10-06-2010, 04:05 AM
Yeah, I completed the level entirely, thinking that may have been the cause... Sheesh; I also got it after multiple attempts. Having to beat it on the first attempt, or the whole level without getting hurt seems really tedious for a Twisted Pixel game.

Now that I think about it, this is probably one of the hardest achievements found in all of the twisted pixel games. Maybe just because we don't actually know how to unlock it.

pinata242
10-06-2010, 04:16 AM
I've done it myself now and nothing popped. I'll try to hit up some of the TP folks tomorrow to see what they have to say. I used Help Mes because the 3rd section is a bitch and they each take off 165,000 of Benny's health. I even did it from the start of the level to the end of the level without dying on him.

I haven't done it without Help Mes yet (got really close once :() but I can't imagine they'd invalidate it. So either we're doing it wrong or it's glitched. The response I posted earlier makes me think there's more to it than meets the eye.

Yeah. If it is that it's just because it's broken, it's meant to be just the Benny fight, but it could be a way to unlock it now. Or it could just still not work!

I think the section of not getting hit they are talking about is the running section in the second level, where you have to avoid birds n tiki idol statues while running.... I'm not good @ those parts so I'm not sure, I haven't eaten without getting hit

No, it's the Benny fight, as discussed and confirmed by the devs.

if i'd have read this before trying i would have saved myself a lot of time (about 90 mins)

just did it, no help me's or anything, after many annoying clipping issues (the red beams hitting when they shouldn't have, and a lot of being a tard (what more could you expect from me)

shame i'll have to do it again when it's fixed ... not looking forward to that

well at least i got an extra 20000 shots from it

lol well you can fire a lot more if you wrap the controller cord around the trigger button:uzi: and leave it there for a couple of hours you can get the achevo that way instead of beating the game 2 and a half times

Even though this Achievement is glitched, I am trying some things to see if it actually would unlock.

- I am choosing Restart Level to restart Improbable Paper Pals #79 every time I fail an attempt instead of dying. I have the patience to go through the start of the stage multiple times.

- Currently, it seems that using the Help Mes do prevent you from getting the Achievement. It is unknown if this will change after a patch or not. If it does, you should enter the fight with all 3 stocked up. Use them in the 2nd and 3rd parts of the fight. If you have Benny's health at about 450,000 before using the Help Mes, you WILL beat him using only the 3 Help Mes, as they do at least 150,000 to Benny.

- There is ONE very interesting thing that may cause the "glitch" on an otherwise perfect run (other than falling into the lasers during the missile section in the 3rd part of the fight). During the 2nd part, when Benny uses the lasers to go straight down, then side to side where you have to move with them, the lasers turn off before they're retracted. It's unknown if "contact" with where the lasers would be would count as getting hit.

- If Benny does the "Disappearing Laser" (that isn't like the one I mentioned) where you have to go to the right, kiss the Achievement goodbye. It should be possible to avoid it, but every attempt I make, I "graze" the laser and take damage.

- The only thing left for me to do is to get a real perfect run without using Help Mes in the last part (I just hate the lasers between the boxes) to see if it's completely unobtainable currently, or if it's just glitched so you have to do it the first time you run into Benny.

EDIT: Well, I guess it really IS unobtainable until a patch. I just beat Benny without taking a single hit after going through the first part of the stage, and I beat Mistress Ropes without getting hit as well. Save & Continue, no Achievement pops. So a message to anyone else who wants to try to get it. Don't bother at all until a patch happens. I just beat Benny without taking a hit, and nothing popped at any point afterward.

DARKSAV10R
10-09-2010, 11:18 AM
It's from Benny (The Drill Boss).

The achievement relates to Total Recall where the character Benny keeps telling Arnie he has a wife and 5 kids to feed.
When he slips up by saying "I've got a wife and 6 kids to feed" Arnie questions him "I thought you had 5?" to which Benny replies "Aw man, you got me... I ain't even married!"

Hope that helps ;)

10-09-2010, 02:09 PM
Dang I figured it was that Benny fight just cause during the entire fight I thought about the scene from Total Recall. Laughed so hard at the end when ya beat him. Still hope that the helps won't affect the cheevo after it gets fixed. I mean it only says don't get hit. Not don't get hit and don't use helps >_>. Maybe I'm just being particular but yeah...

When the update does go up, easiest way to get it, but three "helps" and play the level. Once you are falling down the shaft and his health is around either 48k, use the special move. The first time it will teleport you to the next section down below. However, use it two more times and it will reduce him to zero.

Zonic505
10-16-2010, 04:56 PM
Thanks for the advice. I'll have to do that then it's fixed.

pinata242
10-16-2010, 05:30 PM
He meant 480k, since each help hits him for ~165k. When I did it before, I'd get him down to around 600-550k and just before the first section ended, I'd use the first Help Me. Then we'd start falling and he'd be ~400k left. I'd shoot him down to just below 330k, and I'd use the second Help Me. This would trigger the 3rd section and I'd use the last Help Me during the transition, before the game even gave me back control. He'd be dead before the we'd even move.

Now, whether or not that will work for the achievement when the patch hits, I can't say :D

Also for this fight I've noticed two things, so take care or you may have to do it over.
In the start of the 3rd section continue moving forward slightly or you might run the risk of being hit with the drill as the section begins. Also When you actually drop his HP to 0 make sure you've got some distance here too, otherwise when he dies, the drill with whip back to the front and hit you.

I don't know when you go to sleep, but I'd be betting on 2am PDT like most of their releases. Patches may come out sooner but, let's be honest, it's been 3 weeks already. They aren't exactly expediting this minor fix.

I'll just check first thing in the morning while the kids are waiting for the bus :)

While it is a minor fix I think it's the fact that the patch process takes so long anyways with MS. I don't think the size really matters it's just the process of placing a patch on a game I think that is what slows them down. TP actually did a decent job on getting a patch out pretty fast, it's good to see they are active with the community. *Glares at Ubisoft with Naruto*

I meant that as far as priority on MS's side. It's not a critical break/fix patch, it's a very minor thing since the game works. I believe this is why it has taken so long and hasn't been rushed out whenever it's finally approved, no matter the time of day.

Very true man, it probably doesn't help that their marketplace servers have been haywire and there's a rush of big games out lol they are probably running around frantic while the patch gathered some dust before getting spotted.

Gosh it's as if they just find out ways to stall and prolong this problem as long as they can. It's agrivating that they seem to take such low priority in urgent issues such as these. MS really neglects achievements and little do they know how much of a fanbase they bring in.

At this point, it might get delayed even further now, since Monday 11/1 is the scheduled date of the big Fall Dashboard update. I doubt they're going to do anything with a minor game patch when there's a huge global release of a Dashboard update ready to go. But here's hoping we'll FINALLY get it once the dust has settled from that!

If it's any consolation, the Borderlands update is held up for the same reasons. There are a lot of vocal people about that. Yesterday I asked @XboxSupport what's going on and they said the "appropriate teams are investigating". So, for whatever that's worth...

I'm in the same boat having the "help me's" not work for unlocking the achievement as well as the game being extremely glitchy. After I finished the part yet again without getting hit and doing the fighting scen on the beach, the comic page turned twice after I started fighting and captain smiley was just standing on a screen twirling his guns. I could do nothing but restart. At what point is the achievement unlocking for you guys? As soon as his life hits 0?

Not unlocking for me either and I've tried multiple times, all with Help Mes.

For the glitch, I've found that if you defeat Benny in the second section, it'll mess up later during the rope climbing area (you can hear Benny talking about his 5 kids). In order to avoid this, just make sure the 3rd section at least begins to load before using your final Help Me.

For those of you that DID get it to unlock with a Help Me, were you at full health when you got to Benny? I ask because Help mes heal you fully, so maybe there's a check for "starting health" vs "ending health".

Has anyone let themselves die during the fight and then successfully got it to unlock on a retry?

T0b3
11-05-2010, 09:01 PM
I had about 40% health left when I defeated him using Help Mes.
Plus: I used them all up at once. The last once was used while the page in the comic book changed.

Popped without any issues..

That's how I've been doing it since the beginning. Still nothing for me, but I'm going to keep at it.

By the way, your Help Mes fill your health, so how can you be at 40% when you beat him?

IceKingz
11-05-2010, 09:13 PM
I just unlocked it after struggling big time with his stupid lasers in the falling section.

I used the first help me when he was at 580k right before the falling section then when he we hit the ground I used the second then the third. I started off with almost no health so if anyone is wondering that doesn't affect it and I messed up and purposely died and it still unlocked. The achievement also unlocks the second you get Benny at 0. Not at the actual end of the level so there's some questions answered for you guys.

For the people with the glitches, I would just clear your cache and try again. I had one glitch where a robot vacuum fell into Benny at the beginning but everything else was fine.

Glad to get 200 finally =)

The Update is LIVE so this achievement is attainable now. A few notes:

You can use Help Me's. I used all 3 in a row once he was down to 450,000 or so.

If you get hit before using your Help Me's, just die. It will start you back at the checkpoint and there are no repercussions. Overall, not too difficult.

Good Luck!

I solve it. i tried serval times with the help me with out geting it. Because i never had full life then i came to benny. so i then i got to benny i let benny killed me one time. and after that i complet it with the help me out and got the achievment as soon as Bennys life hit 0.

Captain Urahara
11-05-2010, 10:40 PM
I got the achievement as well. I had a hard time as during the second phase(falling) one of the lasers kept damaging me even though it wasn't touching me.
And at the start of the third phase, he kept ramming me before I had a chance to react.

Took a couple of tries but I got it. Didn't even have to use a Help, mainly since I forgot about them haha

Zonic505
11-05-2010, 11:07 PM
Just found out via Twitter the update was live. Gonna attempt to get the achievement now.

.....why didn't I get it? Maybe because I used the Help Me while the screens were still in transaction?

WTF, I STILL haven't gotten it. Guess I'll trying dying when I get to him, then beating him w/ full health.

Quick question. Do you have to beat the entire level, or will it appear when you beat Benny?

Grufalo
11-05-2010, 11:30 PM
The achievment should unlock then you beat him. but in the second part with the faling the drill can auto hit you with out you notice it.

PaleVoyager
11-05-2010, 11:37 PM
So that's it then. You ought to be at 100% health for the Help Me's to work. I apologize for the misinformation. I just went off my own experience.

JC
11-05-2010, 11:42 PM
This achievement is very hard, each time you use a Help-Me and lose health you must return to base and get another Help-Me, restarting the level does not work...and the missiles are impossible to dodge.

Grufalo
11-05-2010, 11:44 PM
JC you can shoot the misils to get rid of them.

I also did not get the achievement after beating benny without getting hit but I also went into the fight with some loss of health.

What will work without a hitch (as mentioned above) is letting benny kill you right off the bat if you have low health, then beat him without getting hit at all (you can still use all three of the "help me") and bam, achievement unlocked. :)

pinata242
11-06-2010, 04:50 AM
So my hunch was right that everyone that got it and used Help Mes started the fight with full health (or rather restarted the fight and got full health ;))

Seems the check they're making is if "Ending Health" == "Starting Health" so if anyone puts it in a guide, they should recommend letting Benny run over Smiley immediately.

Was able to get it last night first try. Thanks for the help me idea. I went into the battle with low health and let him kill me. Took him down to about 450k health and used the three help me's one after another until he was dead. Worked like a charm.

11-10-2010, 01:21 PM
I actually did it with two "help me"s, got him down to just under 350k before using the first one. Not that hard since the down-the-wall section doesn't end until about 300k. Use the first, let the scene change, use the second.

There! Finally got him. Took several tries (NOTE: do not request help before getting down low on points... had 10,000 points to go and got hit -- had to restart whole level after buying more help me's!), but now I've got 100%.

I got that spinning gun glitch, too, but only after I got the achievement. It's NOT worth my time to go back and redo that whole level again just to get a bit higher score on the leaderboards. Overall, the most annoying achievement for this game, but not the hardest that Twisted Pixel had made (that's gotta be in 'Splosion Man).

In case anyone had any doubts, I wanted to throw in my two cents on the issue of this glitched achievement.

TL;DNR version: If you use a help me during the battle and you didn't enter the fight with Benny with full health, you will not get the achievement. If you intend to use a help me during the fight and your health is less than 100%, let Benny kill you and then give it a go.

Full Story:
This achievement would just not pop for me, even after the update. I deleted the game from my Xbox's memory and redownloaded it. Still nothing. I cleared the cache on my box and redownloaded the updated. Still nothing. I then read some posts on this thread and can confirm everything I stated above about how to get the achievement. I never let Benny kill me at the start to bring my health back to 100% until tonight. The time I finally try it, achievement unlocked. That tells me that they do a check at the start of the fight and then at the end of the fight to see the health difference. If it's different at all, no achievement. Which makes me wonder: lets say you start the fight at 100% health. And then what if you get a hit a couple of times during the battle. Then, what if you used a help me toward the end of the fight, refilling your health back to its starting place. Would the achievement unlock? I don't know, but it's interesting.

Dany1981Mtl
11-15-2010, 02:06 AM
i finally got this achievement by using this video.

YouTube - Comic Jumper He Ain't Even Married Achievement

I did the exact same thing and it unlocked after using the 3rd help me. If somebody has trouble with this achievement, you can try the video. If you manage to get Benny's health down to ~440,000 at the 2nd part of the fight without getting hit, you are pretty close. Then use the 3 help mes one after another.

Good luck

Do you start pushing towards the right before the third section starts?. I always get hit as soon as that section starts. I have also had it that he starts using the laser right away in the second section and when I use a help me the third section starts. I will try again when I get more credits.

Don't wait for the third section to actually start. You can hit Benny with your last, deadly Help Me as the scene is transitioning with the comic page turning.

Just a word of warning about something that caught me out, between the first and second Help Me! I was clobbered by Benny and had to start again. Try to hold off using the first help me until he is between attacks, that way of you a second or so to dodge his next attack before you can use your second help me.

Thanks again you helpful peoples you.

It gets pretty easy if you can make it through the first and second part without getting hit, which is not so hard, and using Help Me!

I used a help me! in the falling down section at about 360,000 and another one right after falling down (start of "part 3") and killed it. Needed 2 tries though as on the first i got hit right away in the third part.

You can drop them at 450k and he dies. As long as you dodge the missles this ones in the bag.

But even if you do get hit you just let him kill you so theres no need to run through the entire level again.

hydrosugar
04-14-2011, 01:10 PM
gah this sucks i know i did it and it didnt unlock. i even played to the end of he level to check if it would unlock there.

i didn't get hit by his dodgy lasers and i used my final help me in the transition between falling and the third part to kill him. ive come close before but i did not get hit this time.

in the past i got hit the moment i touched down in the third part and the moment i started falling in the second part. but i made sure that didnt happen this time.

now for the most part ive been playing this offline. but i made sure i signed into live to update the game, which it did give me the option, before trying to get this(i actually quit midway through my first attempt because i remembered). plus since i downloaded it after the patch came out it should probably be within the game when i was online downloading it, but even so i got the patch. guess i'll try again:mad::mad::mad:

did it again and didnt unlock??? this time i used my last 2 help me's on the third part but nothing doing. do i have to be online while playing for the patch to take effect?
either way i done with this game for the moment at least.

pinata242
04-14-2011, 02:27 PM
As has been mentioned numerous times in this thread it isn't exactly "don't get hit" it's more like "finish with the same health you started with".

So if you use a Help Me and you didn't start with 100% health, it won't count. What you want to do is start the section and then immediately die. This will give you 100% when the section starts again. Then use all your Help Mes in the second run.

Finally got this last night by checking this thread. I'm glad I wasn't trying it when the game was glitched. I got so annoyed with this one section that I never plan on playing the game again. Still it was fun for one playthrough.
