Overview:

-Estimated achievement difficulty: 5/10
-Offline: 41/41 (1000http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg)
-Online: 0
-Approximate amount of time to 1000http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg: 14-18 Hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 2-3 (various endings)
-Number of missable achievements: Each of the endings require a certain hidden score which I refer to as Morality Score. If you do not plan ahead it can make them missable. The collectibles are also missable, as certain areas close off and you cannot backtrack.
-Do cheat codes disable achievements? No cheats
-Does difficulty affect achievements? Yes (Hard difficulty for game and for puzzles)
-Glitchy achievements: None
-Unobtainable achievements? None
-Extra equipment needed? Collectible Guide, Side Quest Guide, and if you want extra weapons Pre-Order codes. Find all of that information HERE (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=360995).

Before following the Guide: The side quests in the game were done using the "Hard Puzzle" choice. Some of the side quests will have different locations of items, depending on what difficulty you have set it to. If you would like the most of of this guide, make sure you are on the same difficulty.

Introduction

If you have played Silent Hill before, your opinion will vary depending on how much of a "fanboy" you were. Don't like the introduction music because it's not Akira Yamaoka? Yeah, you likely fit into this category of being extremely hard to please. If you're new to the series, you will likely enjoy your experience without any complaints. This game requires you to complete it 3 times, complete once on Hard Mode and Hard Puzzles, getting collectibles, and finishing all Side Quests. Though this seems daunting at first, the game's length depends on these factors. Therefore you will only fully experience all the game has to offer 1 time, then the other two playthroughs will be cleaning up achievements.

Step 1: Easy Mode/Hard Puzzles/Kill Enemies/Low Morality Endings/Collectibles/Side Quests

The game can be played any way you want for the achievements, but this is the one I personally suggest to do most of it. It gets you used to the game and has you killing the enemies. You will get 2 endings while playing through this and get the Hard Puzzles out of the way. I suggest it this way because you will be using a guide for the side quests and collectibles, so you might as well get the hard puzzles out of the way while the guides are up. This will be your longest playthrough. The other reason you will be killing enemies is because of the side quests, specifically one that makes you kill all enemies before another wave comes.

-Kill monsters
-Leave Cunningham
-Taunt JP
-Spare at end of game, reload save, then kill at end of game
-Results: Ending B and D

Step 2: Hard/Hard Puzzles/Spare Enemies/High Morality Endings/6 of 7 Digging Up Past

This will be your high morality playthrough. You do not have to worry about collectibles nor worry about side quests except to dig up 6 of the 7 dig sites. You can run through the game and spare enemies and make all the good choices. This will be a very fast run through of the game. The reason I suggest Hard Puzzles, is because there are certain main puzzles in the game you have just done in Step 1. Putting them on easy will just confuse you because puzzle items will be in different locations.

-Spare monsters
-Save Cunningham
-Console JP
-Spare at end of game, reload save, then kill at end of game
-Results: Ending A and C

How to save yourself another playthrough: You can make a backup save on Cloud or on USB before doing the last Digging Up The Past dig site. Beat the game and get the 2 endings, then load up the one on the backup save. Finish the quest, then continue to beat the game to get your last ending.

Step 3: "Digging Up The Past"

Refer to the method above. Make a backup save near the Dig Site 7 on USB or Cloud. After finishing the game, reload this backup save and continue through and beat the prison again. You will gain your last 2 achievements here. If you did not do a backup save, you will have to play the entire game again.

Conclusion

After finally completing your last playthrough, you should have been able to easily obtain all of the kill/incapacitate and pistol/shotgun achievements. There will likely never be any DLC for this game, so rest assured, your next Silent Hill visit will likely be reliving the past (previous titles like the HD collection) or future titles if they choose to make more.

Completed the game on the hard game difficulty setting, any ending.

This game requires 2 full playthroughs of the game at the minimum. I suggest having it on this difficulty while going for the endings which require you to spare enemies. This is because you will be rushing through the game, skipping enemies and ignoring collectibles and side quests. This is more straight to the point. The game isn't all that difficult, especially because when you die you get full health back. So use first aid kits only when you really need them.

Completed the game on any difficulty without killing any monsters.

Killing an enemy means when you incapacitate it, not finishing it off while on the ground. If an enemy dies while you fight it that will not count against you. This means you can feel free to fight anything you want and if it dies you'll be fine. You must only leave incapacitated enemies alive for this achievement. Because you have to complete 2 full playthroughs, you should get this while going for the endings related to not killing monsters.

Note: You can always check your statistics in the game start menu. Scroll to the bottom and you should see an Enemies Killed stat. If you keep checking this and notice it went up to 1, you can reload a previous save.

If you do not have access to either, you will need to play through a 3rd time. Otherwise, load up your save after you beat the game for 2 more endings, and complete the prison once more after you dig up the final site.

Completed the "Cinéma Vérité" side quest.

Refer to "Silent Hill Tour Guide" achievement description.

Location: Theater
Prerequisite: Should grab the light bulb from the hardware store first. Read full description below.
Best time to complete: Should be the first thing you do when in Chastain Heights area after the cut-scene when you escape from the Centennial Building.

This will be your first side quest in the new area of Silent Hill called Chastain Heights. Before you head inside the theater, head through the alley South of the theater. Go along the road that curves up and left. Follow it until the dead end. The door with the light above it is a hardware store. Inside is a shotgun and the bulb you need for the quest.

Now that you are prepared, head inside the theater.


Film Reel 1 - The House on the Lake: As soon as you enter the theater, go behind the concession stand on your left and there is a back room with this reel.
Film Reel 2 - The Silent Children: Continue on until you get to the movie screen area. Facing the chairs, look at the 2nd to last row on the left side.
Film Reel 3 - The Secret of the Attic: Now to go the room that's on the right side of the area. Go up the stairs, past the projector, and in the back room is the last reel.
Spliced Reel: You can skip part of the quest by just entering in the code 9241 on keypad by the door (near the projector). Splice the films together to make one.

Now what you must do is use the light bulb you got from the hardware store to fix the projector. Now play the film, and run down to the screen and enter it. Go along the sidewalk and into the house. Pass the stairs and open the door to your left. In the room is a crank on the window. Exit and go through the back door in that hall. Continue through the next, and in that room there is a jack-in-the-box. Use the crank to get a key. Now go to the corner of the room to find a ladder. Go up and locate the chest. Open it and grab the golden gun. Now enemies will attack and it's extremely hard to navigate this area based on the camera angles and losing the ability to effectively aim. Run out of the house and back the way you came to exit.

Completed "The Gramophone" side quest.

Refer to "Silent Hill Tour Guide" achievement description.

Prerequisite: Opposite of the apartment are some red garage doors on a building. Leaning on one of them is a hook. You must grab the hook to pull the ladder down to enter.
Best time to complete: After theater, anytime before St. Maria's.

This is a very short and easy side quest. Just South of the movie theater on the West side (turn left after the alley), you should see a ladder that is too high to reach. Turn around and head to the red garage doors behind you. There is a hook there. Grab it and pull the ladder down. Once inside, head up the stairs and go into the left room. Grab the crank in the children's room then head down the hall into the main bedroom. On the dresser is a record. Go back downstairs and put the two pieces on the record player (gramophone). Play it until a dead body hows up with a message bout turning back time. Now, play the record again but go backwards. After the scene plays out a man gets out of the painting on the staircase and attacks. Run to the painting and burn it with your lighter to complete the quest. The man will keep attacking if you don't.

You can start this quest later on in the game, but you will be able to find the items earlier. Please refer to the guide for a better description.

Completed the "Dead Man's Hand" side quest.

Refer to "Silent Hill Tour Guide" achievement description.

Location: House in Pleasant River
Prerequisite: Enter house and investigate body.
Best time to complete: While in the Pleasant River area.

Make your way to Rice Street. As you exit from the pier area, you should just head straight across. You should see a set of rails and a ladder. Go to the left of this and down the small alley. Follow the path until you reach a back door. Head inside. Investigate until you find a dead man. You'll see his heart was ripped out and the quest will start. Head down to the basement area and you must find a ladder that leads down. When given the choice there is a path to a fire axe and a path to the ladder. The path on the right is for the ladder. This is one of the most confusing areas of the game and you can easily run around in circles and get lost. Finally when you find the ladder, head down. When you get to a choice in paths, take a right. Continue on and on until you find another path that goes right, and do it once again. Find the heart, and travel backwards. The place will be littered with enemies so be careful and just keep running. To finish the quest, place the heart back inside the man's chest.

After dumping the ashes, the achievement will unlock.

Completed the "Mirror, Mirror" side quest.

Refer to "Silent Hill Tour Guide" achievement description.

Location: Right before the boat to the prison, in a house next to the big semi.
Prerequisite: Enter house and look at the mirror.
Best time to complete: Near the end of the game when you get to this area.

Look inside the mirror and whatever looks different, change it. There are 5 interactive objects. Just look for the one the mirror reflects differently, and examine it. Here are the 5 possibilities:


TV on
Dresser open
Lamp on
Picture rotated correctly
Candle Lit

Killed or incapacitated 10 Screamers.

When do they appear: They are the first monsters you see, and will be introduced via a cut scene. There are both male and female versions.

This is a more common enemy in the game. They have various attacks for close range as well as long range. If there are multiple enemies, focus on this type first to avoid a lot of frustration. You will face many of these.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1533/5-gO5FM=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/silent-hill-8/achievement/64845-Shadow-Boxer.html)Shadow Boxer (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/silent-hill-8/achievement/64845-Shadow-Boxer.html) 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Killed or incapacitated 10 Dolls.

When do they appear: The earliest you can fight this enemy is in a basement South of the police station (first house on that block). They appear in Centennial Building, then a lot more in St. Maria's.

This enemy has "Shadows" which attack you. Every time you kill one of the shadows, you will damage the doll. You can also choose to try and attack the doll directly. Use a flashlight to help you spot the shadows. A Forensic Flashlight is best to use against this enemy once you obtain it.

If you defeat the one in the basement, defeat the 3+ in Centennial Building, you should get this achievement after picking up the axe from the corpse in the first moments of St. Maria's. There will be around 6 or 7 in that one room alone.

Killed or incapacitated 10 Weeping Bats.

When do they appear: Once you get to Devil's Pit, you will start facing these monsters.

This enemy is very tall and can crawl around on the ceilings. They have long reach and can surprise you by dropping down. Sometimes you will be faced with multiple. These enemies are one of the most rare in the game, so fight then every chance you get if you are going for this achievement. This is the hardest enemy based achievement in the game.

Glitchy: It seems to only count if you kill or incapacitate these enemies while they are on the ground (not shooting them while they are on the ceiling). Some also say they randomly spawn on the overpass after St. Maria's. Some have seen a bunch of them spawn, while others have seen 0. There are 2 side quests that you can find them in, Dead Man's Hand and in the Monroe Cemetery when you finish the Art Collector quest. You can avoid all of these locations if you just take care of the ones you see.

Killed or incapacitated 10 Prisoner Minions.

When do they appear: These enemies will start appearing once you leave Devil's Pit and are in Silent Hill. They will randomly spawn outside, more likely when it's raining.

There are 2 different types of this enemy type. There are Brawlers and Stabbers. They are melee based enemies. You should be able to defeat them with melee yourself, Brawlers being the easier of the types.

Killed or incapacitated 10 Prisoner Juggernauts.

These enemies will only show up in the Overlook Penitentiary. The are scripted and not random encounters for the most part. You must dodge the charge attack and then strike when you see an opening, or just shoot them since you have a good amount of ammo in the prison. Whenever you come into contact with them, take care of them. If for some reason you missed a few, don't worry. During the last few minutes of the game if you wait long enough, you might face another 7.

Escaped from 20 monsters.

Escaping an enemy means you have fled the fight without killing or incapacitating the enemy. When running from enemies, you'll likely just be holding http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rb.png to get a lot of distance. This achievement will likely randomly unlock for you as you're normally walking around Silent Hill, without any enemies nearby (at least that you had been aware of)

Completed Murphy's Journal with all Mysteries.

These are the collectibles in the game and you must get them all which fill your journal. There are a total of 54 but you only need 53 for the achievement. This means you only have room for 1 error. The main story progression areas you cannot backtrack to. Be diligent when finding these. This all must be done in 1 playthrough, they do not stack.

Incapacitated 20 monsters without killing them.

When fighting enemies, they will go down and be incapacitated. This means they aren't yet dead and have the potential to get back up if you wait around too long. You will get this while going for specific endings (morality score above 0). You can do this on any playthrough you want though. Remember, the town of Silent Hill always spawns enemies randomly.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1533/5-019mU=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/silent-hill-8/achievement/64852-Gun-Control.html)Gun Control (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/silent-hill-8/achievement/64852-Gun-Control.html) 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Killed 25 monsters with the Pistol or Shotgun.

Any weapon that is considered a firearm will work for this achievement. Remember what path you are on, and only kill enemies when going for specific endings and achievements. See the last achievement in the guide that talks about endings for more information and how to plan ahead.

Guns aren't extremely rare, but they are also pretty easy to miss. You also have a limited supply of bullets. The best way to get these kills would be to just finish off the enemies with the gun. Use melee attacks with http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/x.png. Once they are down, aim with http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/lt.png and fire with http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rt.png. If you are on easy, the enemies will usually only take one bullet while on the ground. Eventually you will be using the shotgun a lot, so don't panic if you haven't gotten the achievement by the time you get to the prison area. This achievement is best aligned while going for all side quests in the game. Below are the weapons you could potentially find.


Colt: Most common gun, found in a good amount of places.
Shotgun: Not found for a while, there will be a good amount when you get to the prison though.
Golden Gun: Awarded after the Cinema Verite side quest.
Rifle: Enter pre-order code 911977 into the in-game lockers at the entrance of Silent Hill after the Devil's Pit, in the basement of a house South of the C of Campbell St, and the Pearl Creek Subway entrance found on Laymond Ave.

Note: You can check your gun kills in the start menu statistics screen. Scroll to the bottom to see how many were killed by firearms. The game will not count kills if you have died, you will have to get them all over again.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1533/5-zVDvY=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/silent-hill-8/achievement/64853-Hypochondriac.html)Hypochondriac (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/silent-hill-8/achievement/64853-Hypochondriac.html) 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Used 20 First Aid Kits.The First Aid Kits are fairly easy to find in the game if you check most rooms. They are usually in a drawers or in a cabinet. You can hold as many as you want at one time, so only use them when needed. To use them, you must be injured lower than 100%. Open up your inventory and choose them. To use them quickly, just press :dright:. This avoids putting yourself in your inventory menu while enemies are attacking. To see how many you have used, all it takes is simple math. Go to your stats page from the pause menu. Scroll down until you see how many First Aid Kits you have picked up. Take this total and minus the amount you are currently holding. This will give you how many you have actually used.

Note: When you get on the boat to leave Silent Hill, you will lose all of your First Aid Kits. Use them up if you still need the achievement before getting on the boat.

Survived the Diner Otherworld.

Story related, and can't be missed.

This is gained after your first Otherworld encounter. At the diner, you will be in the kitchen. You turn off the gas and then must pull a fire alarm. Once in, you must escape something chasing you. At the very end you'll be running up what seems like endless stairs. Once you know there is nothing chasing you, just turn around and run back down them for the achievement.

Rode the Sky Tram to Devil's Pit.

Story related, and can't be missed.

In one of the shacks is a game to play. Follow the cables to the generator, fix it, then go back in and play the game. After winning you will have free tickets. Now you can run back to the tram and ride it for the achievement.

Met DJ Ricks in the Radio Station.

Story related, and can't be missed.

DJ Ricks is found in the Centennial Building on the 18th floor. You will eventually get there, as it is story related. He is in room 1701. After the cut-scene plays out, the achievement will unlock.

Escaped the Radio Station Otherworld.

Story related, and can't be missed.

After the DJ Ricks cut-scene, you will have to find some fluid to burn some clothes by a fire exit (and light it with the lighter). Afterwards, you will be running in the Otherworld. It can be somewhat tricky, but all it takes is a little persistence. You must continue on the only way forward until you get to another cut-scene that finally gives you the achievement.

Collected 3 pages of the rhyme book.

Story related, can't be missed.

While doing the St. Maria's area, you will have to find 3 poem fragments to piece together a poem. They involve puzzles of sort, and you must complete them before you can move on in the game. They also count as 3 of the mysteries you must find in the game.

Poem Fragment 1

Inside St Maria's Monastery, you will eventually get to the Chapel after the little girl runs up the stairs. Inside is a locked gate with the poem behind it. Examine the ropes on the pillars. Burn the closest one to the book. Now examine the chandelier and pull/push it into the gate twice to break the doors open.

Poem Fragment 2

This is related to doing the stage puzzle. You should already have the lever. Grab the record from the drawer in the room behind. Now place the record on the player and the lever on the right mechanism. You must do a very specific order to complete the puzzle.


Turn off the lights using the switch on the right.
Play the record.
Activate the spotlight. Turn it to the middle.
Pull the lever on the left of the spotlight.
Pull the lever on the right of the spotlight.
Turn the handle on the rain machine in the back.
Examine the medal sheet to strike it.

Now the area will turn into what the play was. Head into the cottage and to the chest. Examine it and piece together the puzzle (very easy). You will automatically be awarded the poem.

Poem Fragment 3

You will find a room where there are 3 screamers on the beds. Wheel the first one on the left into the X-Ray Machine. Activate it to make sure the key is inside. Wheel it out and examine the screamer. Rotate the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/ls.png until the monster starts making a fuss. The worse, the better. Now press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png. You should grab both the poem and the key. You will also get "Ashes, Ashes" achievement for grabbing all 3.

Defeated The Bogeyman.

Story related, and can't be missed.

This will be somewhat of a boss fight at the end of St. Maria's. This is a specific fight where you are at a lake and he rises from the water. You must attack him until he goes down on the ground on his knee, then press :abut: on his hammer to finish him off before he gets back up. If he gets back up, you have to damage him all over again. Be quick about it.

Achieved "Surprise!" ending.

There are a total of 5 different endings in the game, each related to achievements. The game has a hidden "morality score" that you will never actually see. This score and your final decision will give you various endings. What you will want to do is stack these endings. Because there are truly only a couple differences for the endings, you can reload checkpoints and knock out 2. When you get Ending A, reload save and choose alternate choice to get Ending B. When you get ending C, reload save and choose alternate choice to get ending D. Ending E happens after a special sidequest after completing the game once, so make sure you only complete it when going for that specific ending.

Ending A: Forgiveness


Incapacitated enemies being SPARED
Attempt to save Cunningham (Ravine)
Attempt to console JP Sater (Devil's Pit)
Score must be ABOVE 0
Press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png to SPARE during final moment of game

Ending B: Truth & Justice


Incapacitated enemies being KILLED
Leave Cunningham behind (Ravine)
Taunt JP Sater (Devil's Pit)
Score must be BELOW 0
Press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png to SPARE during final moment of game

Ending C: Full Circle


Incapacitated enemies being SPARED
Attempt to save Cunningham (Ravine)
Attempt to console JP Sater (Devil's Pit)
Score must be ABOVE 0
Press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/b.png to KILL during final moment of game

Ending D: Execution


Incapacitated enemies being KILLED
Leave Cunningham behind (Ravine)
Taunt JP Sater (Devil's Pit)
Score must be BELOW 0
Press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/b.png to KILL during final moment of game

Ending E: Surprise!

For this ending, all you must do is complete the "Digging Up the Past" sidequest, and then complete the game with any score. This quest is only available after completing the game at least once beforehand. See "Useless Trinkets achievement description for how to complete.

Great guide so far, bro! I got a question though. I've been playing and haven't really looked at a guide or anything until now. I've been killing enemies, sometimes I kill them when they are incapped sometimes I don't. And I Helped Cunningham and I consoled JP. What ending am I gonna get? And will I still be able to get two different endings when I reload my checkpoint? Or did I fuck it all up?

any chance you guys might have had it backwards ?

I recommend doing the "Good Behavior" achievement on the Hard difficult setting because it takes several hits to kill enemies even when they are knocked down making it easier to not screw up and kill an enemy accidentally. The game gives you enough health packs to survive assuming you ditch almost every enemy you come in contact with.

Dunno, but i killed 6 or 8 during the final bossfight, so you should be able to do it without problems.


@Topic: Shouldn't it be possible to get 1000GS in 2.5 playthroughs?

Finish everything in SH except "digging up the past" and before leaving do the quest, beat the game and get the Surprise! Ending. Now reload the savegame just before finishing the quest and get the other two?

I had pasted it over while shifting some of my guide down to make room. I'll fix it after work. Thanks for the reminder, though it was just pointed out to me yesterday a few posts up ;)

Great guide so far, bro! I got a question though. I've been playing and haven't really looked at a guide or anything until now. I've been killing enemies, sometimes I kill them when they are incapped sometimes I don't. And I Helped Cunningham and I consoled JP. What ending am I gonna get? And will I still be able to get two different endings when I reload my checkpoint? Or did I fuck it all up?

I have also done this...
Can you still get 2 different endings or not?

Depends on the number of executed enemies. I executed quite a lot, but still got the good endings, so you will probably be fine.

Edit: I can confirm there are at least 6 endings in total


Are you sure that is how you get every ending? I'm ony asking because I ended with two endings and they don't match what you said. Also, If it's anything like Homecoming enemies killed shouldn't matter it's all about your choices.

Mine were
Ending A:
Spare all enemies
first 2 options use bad (B)
3rd option use good (A)

Ending B:
execute enemies
Every option I used the good (A)

Ending C:
Spare all enemies
all bad choices (B)

Ending D:
execute enemies
First 2 options I use good (A)
3rd decision I use Bad (B)

Ending E: (working on now)
Do what ever
Complete Digging up the pass on second playthrough

Ending F:
Do what ever
Die in final battle

I heard there are 7 endings (5 with achievements and 2 without) but I don't know if it is true or not. I'm going to test it but I want to finish another game before I devote more time to SH.

How do you got 4 decisions? If i count the one at the end, there would be 3.

Afaik there are only 6 endings. 5 with achievements and 1 without.

There are only 3. I was wore out when I was typing. Was Homecoming 4? Maybe that's what I was thinking of.

From what I heard about endings (I don't know if it's true) there are 7. I am only going by what I have heard from multiple people that played through the game a few times and from what I've read online. I have only seen 2 endings so far.

Good Morality:
Spare Anne
kill Anne

Bad Morality:
Spare Anne
Kill Anne

Death:
Let Anne Kill you

Secret:
Complete game with digging up the past
Die during Anne battle after finishing digging up the past

Killed or incapacitated 10 Weeping Bats.

When do they appear: Once you get to Devil's Pit, you will start facing these monsters.

This enemy is very tall and can crawl around on the ceilings. They have long reach and can surprise you by dropping down. Sometimes you will be faced with multiple. These enemies are one of the most rare in the game, so fight then every chance you get if you are going for this achievement. This is the hardest enemy based achievement in the game.

Glitchy: It seems to only count if you kill or incapacitate these enemies while they are on the ground (not shooting them while they are on the ceiling). Some also say they randomly spawn on the overpass after St. Maria's. Some have seen a bunch of them spawn, while others have seen 0. There are 2 side quests that you can find them in, Dead Man's Hand and in the Monroe Cemetery when you finish the Art Collector quest. You can avoid all of these locations if you just take care of the ones you see.

I just wanted to note how important it is to fight this enemy every chance you get. I played though the game doing every side quest and exploring every area and I just got this achievement on the last weeping bat I saw.

The way it ended up for me was that I only skipped one fight while I was in the movie for the theatre side quest. If I had of skipped even two weeping bats I don't think I would have got this achievement and that's with me doing every side quest.

what does that mean when u say below 0 or above 0 what does the 0 mean pts?


Basically it refers to the hidden morality code that the game has. In this case it refers to choices that affect your morality positively (above 0) and the choices that affect it negatively (below 0). And yes 0 refers to points.

However i believe that the explanation given to get each ending is incorrect (at the by reading the requirements needed for each ending). Because by having Ending A and reloading the last save and doing the other choice you´ll get Ending C and not Ending B as is described in the guide. The same thing occurs in obtaining Ending B and reloading the save do get Ending D and not what is described in the guide.

Please verify if it is correct! Thanks.

SO that point thing is meaningless? Had me confused....really isnt a point in mentioning it if those 3 choices are the only thing that affect it. That had me confused....I was worrying I couldnt die a certain amount of times or something.
