'Can't Touch This!' and 'Butcher of Blaviken' - I got both these at the same place. when you have finished the main quest in White Orchid you'll have to go back to the inn. Once inside the inn, you'll talk to someone, and then after the cut scene you'll be attacked by five guys, I mashed the X button and killed all five of them within a few seconds and got both achievements. I did have the most powerful sword you could get at that point, so I did one-shot them. I'm also playing on Death March, so on lower difficulties this should be even easier. Make a save before going into the inn.
I'm doing some testing on a few other achievements, so I'll let you know how I get on.
Considering you are probably still in White Orchid, I'll tell you where I few more achievements so you can test them.
'Fist of the South Star' - One of the first things you'll do in White Orchid is go to an inn and acquire some info, when you leave you'll be attacked by three guys. You can use Axii on one of them and the other 2 will attack you. Block the first guys attack, and them spam the Y button and you'll knock him out in 3-4 hits. keep your eye on the other guy, though, and make a save before leaving the inn just to be safe. I imagine there are quite a few places you could get this achievement, but this how I got it.
I'm sort of freaking out, since I'm sure I will get so incredibly frustrated doing that. This may seem like a dumb question, but is that whole process on the hardcore difficulty? (I know, I know… I just thought maybe the "hardcore" aspect came from restarting the whole game rather than the difficulty).
Thanks though. I'll keep that in mind when I start. At least I'll have 4 playthroughs to practice and I'll have the levels memorized by then.
That mechanized bat suit was so damn sexy though. Mmm.
Also, I'm pretty set on Max Payne 3 as my next game that I'll start on Thursday or Friday, so I have two questions about NYM Hardcore. First one: if I die, do I restart from the beginning of chapter 1 (I ask because some people on Gamefaqs said that you restart that chapter)? And second one: do I have to restart in that mode if I fail the objective (as in not dying, but someone you need to protect per se got killed)?
I would imagine you'd remember that since seeing that unlock was probably a highlight of last gen for you.
Are you going to post a WIP Witcher 3 guide soon? I'm not trying to rush you, I know you have only just started, but I've got a few tips for some achievements. For example, you can unlock 'Kaer Morhen Trained' and 'What Was That?' in the tutorial.
Doesn't work. I tried it today. My dad's okay with it, but it doesn't work. It runs when I turn the tv off, but when I turn the tv on, it resets. :/ Oh well, I went from 500 miles to 798.89 miles today, so I'm hoping to have this done by tomorrow or Wednesday for sure. I'm gonna video that shit and post it in my blog. Only other time I've videoed an achievement being unlocked is rank 100 in GTA V, since that took the patience of a kindergarten teacher to do that.
