Catherine Xbox 360 FAQ
There was a feature that 360a began implementing a few years back to contain a FAQ in every forum for every game to help cover all the commonly asked questions posted in the forum. To avoid clutter(or minimize it for that matter) we have posted a FAQ to help make 360a your one stop shop for all your achievement needs!
I’ll try to avoid spoilers for the most part. However, some of the questions asked simply have no answer to be given without some spoiler. For the most part, a portion of the Gameplay Questions will contain at least some spoilers to inform possible buyers about the game, some of the General and Other Questions contain plot elements as well. So for those who care:
THIS THREAD CONTAINS MINIMAL SPOILERS
