Story run through took me just under 6 hours, and this was without a manuscript guide (I only missed one). I'd say no more than 5 hours with using the guide. Most of them are very easy to spot without that much searching.

Story mode took me around 5 hours without using a guide and I also only missed one.
I also took my sweet time listening to the radio and watching tv.
You could probably rush through it with a guide in 3 hours or less.

Thank you for the guide.

"Survivor" was the most annoying achievement.

Easiest Skill Beats Gun & Glorious Dawn Achievements

I have found an extremely easy way to get the Skill Beats Gun & Glorious Dawn Achievements using an exploit to access a safe zone:

Once in the safe zone, as shown in the video, you can wait the 10 minutes to collect your achievements.

I had a chance to get about 15/24 stars so far and I only had to play a couple levels twice in order to get 3 stars (well, Nightmare mode I get 2/3). Anyways, I should update the guide with better detail once I have it all myself.

Missable

Tyger7, the first thing I look for in a guide is the Missable Achievements section. You should add it to the guide. Thank you.

Thanks for the guide, really helpful.

OT: Why is this forum called "Alan Wake's Night Springs" and not American Nightmare ? Seems like that could cause confusion!

Brought it up to Admin when the game released, hasn't been fixed yet. Sure it will eventually.

Was actually not going to pick this up. Thought I would of been disappointed. Loved the first one, so I decided to at least give this one a shot. I'll definitely be using this guide!

Difficulty affects achievements? So I should play story mode on nightmare or not?
