I think this looks like a very good list. With a decent guide shouldn't be too difficult to 1000G. Love the one for keeping your hat on during a brawl!!

I really like this list. Looks fun and interesting without a whole lot of grinding or achievements that if missed require an entire playthrough.

how do you all think that the 5star missions thing will work and will it mean that missions are repeatable?

There are some pretty cool achievements in this game. I liked the one for keeping your hat on during a brawl and the one for finding the sites around the city.

I am having a hard time with the golden reels achievement. it's not hard but it's tedious and time consuming. and the whole driving all the cars in the game thing just seems like it is going to take a long time to. I am at 45 but have no idea what cars I have driven...is there any way to check that?

In the extras section of the main menu you can go to vehicle showroom and see what you have and what you need. I kinda liked the golden reels because it took you to some different areas of the game that I wouldn't of checked out otherwise. It really highlighted the detail of the game, but it did get tedious towards the end. I just makred the spot on the map and made my partner drive there, wasn't horrible.

Dayum BLaZe, you are a real demolition man. But I also was around 100k $ when I got that achievement. I just made a good rampage through L.A. without even take care how much cars, etc. I've destroyed.

I unlocked Public Menace:

$120,497 vehicle damage...Injuries at $1,450 (I actually managed to kill a few people instead of them dodging all over the place) and City damage at $3,239. One Star'd, yeah!!!

Lol...I have 5 achievements left but I'm curious...I unlocked Shamus to the Stars upon Five-Starring the 20th case...is that supposed to happen? I had five starred every case before it, so I'm curious about this..

I just unlocked City of the Angels as the final achievement possible as of today (not including Reefer and Nicholson cases), and I have to say, while I still feel a sense of accomplishment, I feel like it wasn't as enjoyable as the Redeemed achievement from Red Dead Redemption, and therefore wasn't as satisfying. I thought the cars thing and the film reels quest were just tedious and more time-consuming than enjoyable gameplay.

Anyone else share my feeling of disappointment in a very minor sense?

Big question!!

I had the regular version at launch. Now, I have the "Complete Edition". Had to erase OLD saves to be able to play New LA Noire {Lazy Programming}.

Big Question: Do get the 100% achiev, does it go by Achiev's or will I have to do everything again in the new LA Noire?

In the old game, all I had to do is get about 20 cars and would have been done.

I'm afraid what the answer is ...

thanks.

BTW-

I love this game and too bad the dev's of the game went broke and were let go, but it is pure laziness how they set up the saves.

Just completed last one - Hollywoodland aka collect all golden film reals which was pretty boring and time consuming for me (2 hours) atleast there is a time-saving possibility - let your parnter drive, if there wasn´t this option, it would take good 5 hours I think...

So happy to have 100% on this "finally".

Game time = Around 28 hours (if I wouldn´t use the guides and stuff it would probably be like 31 hours).

No time constraints, you can go back and redo missions, & damage to cars/people/city will deduct from overall star rating.
I am loving the achievements, though they are not exactly forthcoming. But I did not pay $60 to burn through this game in a day.
Also, I keep getting my dang hat knocked off!!!

This question has probably been answered numerous times, but I want to know what the hell disc #2 and #3 are for? I put them both in and they start up exactly like disc #1, so I was like fuck it and just popped #1 back in.

You have to use Disc 2 to access most of the cases in Homicide, as well as the first case in Vice. Disc 3 uses most cases in Vice, and all of Arson.

Also, the free-roams are similar. Traffic free-roam can only be accessed on disc 1. Homicide is on disc 2, and Vice/Arson is on disc 3.

Does that mean we have to keep switching discs to get certain achievements?

Haha funny question. Well I'd say mostly to get the "unmissable cheevos" like story-progress etc. You can still earn the miscellaneous ones (Film Reels, Landmarks etc.) via Free-Roam mode on EVERY disc.
