some achievements

I saw this piece of text on ign.com;

At our session's end, we checked out some of the Achievements built into the game. You get some for hacking a turret, hacking a security bot, fully upgrading weapons, completing sections of the game, and specializing in plasmid use. Then there are some peculiar entries, such as the Wrench King achievement which requires you finish the entire game using the only the wrench and plasmids. There's another that only unlocks after you finish the game without triggering security systems. That sounds really hard, to say the least, especially considering how much firepower you have to throw at Big Daddies, and makes us curious how long the game actually is. Regardless, BioShock is very impressive so far. We can't wait for more.

Considering the achievements I think the game would be pretty short or the achievements are gonna be VERY time consuming... I can't wait to play this game!

cheers!

Nice find mate!

I'd guess the campaign'll last a good 7-10 hours. Or at least, hope so. Nice to see the achievements slide towards added replayability, wonder what the rest are.

Not long to go now.

I read that the game will last 25 hours if you take your time. So your 10 hours will probably be a good guess, i guess...

That's kind of disappointing tbh. 25 hours tops for the main story? Hmm, that's o.k. considering that's similar to Half-Life 2 and F.E.A.R.

ya 25 hours doesnt seem long enough. i personally hope there is a mix of hard achievements(for longevity) and easy achievements(to keep me intrested) I think the achievements like the wrentch one make people want to play through the game multiple times trying something new each time. Im SOOOOOOOOO excited!!!!

I can't find enough turrets to get the research phd achievement!!! I cant find any enemy ones. Is there any way of getting the turrets to become unfriendly because I have been searching all over rapture for enemy turrets.

If you take pics of most of the turrents you encounter, you should finish turrent research around Fort Frolic. You can't make hacked machines unhacked, just take the pics after electrobolt and before hacking. If you didn't research turrents and you dealt with all of them, you need to restart the game and research them first instead of hacking or destroying them.

Don't forget about security bots and security cameras.

I doubt it, but I have only played hard so I couldn't tell you for sure. If you are worried about hard being too hard, you can stop because it really wasn't that bad. Just take pics of everything you can research and you will be done in no time.

The achievements dont bug me at all, I heard there are lots of ways to go through the story so that brings some good replay value.

Just save before the ending and go back to any levels where you think you may have missed Little Sisters. Press start in each new area and it will show you how many you need. Every picture of a Big Daddy at the bottom of the pause menu counts for a Sister that you need

I need help finding security bots and cameras...I'm trying to get the research achievement....

*spoiler*

I already have the big daddy suit on...and now I'm going back thru the game to try and find cameras and bots to take pictures of.

*spoiler end*

does anyone know a good place to find these....especially security bots...b/c the only place i've found any is when they are blinking red and they have a person with them who is blinkng red also....they cant come after me b/c cameras won't detect me (b/c of the thing i mentioned in the spoiler)

HELP

But you can't really go back to all the areas can you. In Madical Pavilion there is a locked door. And you can't go back to the very first level if you missed the two audio diaries there for example...

Trying for Tonic Collector

I'm on the last stage of the game, have become a Big Daddy...Theres a Garden machine here that has two tonics, Hacking Expert 2, and Human Inferno 2...I didn't see any alternate means of obtaining these other than the Garden...But I'm out of Adam. I made sure to save every little sister, and I bought everything else but those two. Do you obtain some Adam after knocking on the pipe to make the one at the end come out? If not, how do I obtain those last two tonics?

Start a new game on hard to get that achievement and use the weapon upgrade station locater thread, which makes it really easy..and there are a serious amount of nitro splicers in the last two areas up to main boss in promethius point and the area before.

Hope that helps.

You need to pick them up in the reward teddy bears that the little sisters leave at the gatherer's garden machines. If you didn't pick them up, you have to restart to get them. Next run-through, when Tennenbaum radios you about a reward, go and get it immidiately, they dissapear otherwise.
