INTRO: OK, this is something I've always wanted to do and put the time into but it seems that a lot of times it is a race and everyone beats me to it. I wanted to do one for New Vegas but you know how fast that got done and I got the 1000 within a few days of release with no guides at all. So here we go. First one so be gentle, any and all feedback welcomed and appreciated. I haven't got a lot of time to do collectable/every challenge walk-through so this could serve as a nice template to welcome future ones.

OVERVIEW:
Estimated achievement difficulty: 4/10
Offline: 47 [1000http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/g-icon.gif]
Online: 0 [0http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/g-icon.gif]
Approximate time: 25-30 Hours
Minimum number of play-throughs needed: 2
Missable achievements: No (Chapter replays)
Does difficulty affect Achievements? Yes
Unobtainable/glitched achievements?: No, (though there are some glitches in the game)

STEP ONE:
Easy/Normal playthrough; to your preference choose the available Easy/Normal difficulty for your first playthrough. Mostly what your doing now is getting all the story related achievements, unlocking all of the challenges and beating it to unlock the Hard difficulty. All the while collecting as many of those pesky Golden spiders as you can.

GOLDEN SPIDERS:
Golden Spiders can be found when the icon (along with how many you have apparently) shows up just below the Top Right of your screen. It will begin to flash rapidly when you are close by them. There are usually from what I've learned in obvious spots like on ceilings, behind a box, in a room away from the main path, etc. You can also earn Golden Spiders for defeating all of the enemies in the area. Again you should see the icon if there is a Golden Spider award. But to be safe, just kill them all anyway. :)

STEP TWO:
After your first playthrough you can choose whether you want to just run through again on hard and go for any Spiders you may have missed or go to the Web of Challenges and start your trip on getting Gold on all of them.
(NOTE ABOUT WEB OF CHALLENGES): When I played this game I glitched pretty hard in the chapter "No Way Out" I glitched out of the map and all the way a head of the level skipping a bunch, So I missed a challenge. I don't know if it is possible to miss the challenges without doing this, it seems most of them just unlock naturally when you get to that section of the game in which the challenge is.

STEP THREE: Choose whatever you didn't in step two and do that. (Start on Challenges/Playthrough on hard collecting any missed Golden Spiders.)

STEP FOUR: Mop up and misc achievements.

first off, you definitely need more reserves. don't worry, i'll delete this post once you message me.

second, don't forget the basic formatting with achievement tiles from the site and correct formatting for guides. if you do it now, you don't have to bother much once you want to submit it.

third, think ahead on how much you wanna go into detail for certain achievements and calculate your reserves on that :) haven't played the game and was just curious how easy the game would be to complete.

25-30h playtime? are you sure? i've read in reviews that the game takes around 6h and i can't imagine that the challenges are sooooo numerous or difficult to complete(just a wild guess) :)

if you got questions which aren't covered in the FAQ for guide writing, feel free to ask me

I messaged him to do a co op guide, not sure how he wants to do it so within the next day or so I'm going to start cracking into this game more. Finally got a few days off!
