Great Guide, Maka. I'll use this on the weekend when I go for the collectibles.

Hello Maka again. Lovely to read your guide for this. I will using your for Crysis 3's collectibles guide for get achievements out of way. I still waiting for my copy it is should between Today (Wednesday) or Thursday. :)
You're getting this info posted fast! Thanks for the hard work.
All text + videos are now complete for the entire game. Times have been added but do not link anywhere yet, that will be added tomorrow, as well as annotations within the videos to skip to the next one, and better looking thumbnails.

I want to 100% this game so I will be going for it, but 10g? Too much thing for just 10g....
Another great guide mate, well done! Will be using this when I get around to playing the game. It's at home but I want to finish Dead Space 3 first :p
Ok, so I think this guide is 100% complete now.
Can you quit out of levels early after you pick up everything for that level?
this is an awesome guide i love the achievment prompts, its all u need to get everything in a playthrough. Do this for every game that comes out worth playing plz.
I LOVE THE WAY YOU DID THIS GUIDE MAKA!!!! two thumbs way up. like other people i love the cheevo promts!!! very detailed. thanks man!!!
Thanks for all the positive feedback guys! Went through and did a quick proofread, hopefully everything makes sense. If anyone finds any errors while using it, would love for you to let me know.
I found a datapad not listed in chapter 3 it is right next to the second objective.
There are sometimes extra that dont count.
This guide is absolutely fantastic. Usually I'll have lots of tabs open and have to keep track of loads of stuff. With this guide I just have this thread, the checklist and a YT tab open. So much nicer than the last couple of games I was playing.
Integrating the level specific cheevos is win! Adding links to YT in the text based guide is also win.
As awesome as this guide is i cant help but wonder why the nano suit upgrades are not here as well as they are collectables and im wondering if ive missed any :( but i know as stated this took a lot of work so thx for what we do have its a great guide.
