Yeah, the straight flush ones as well as "This Little Piggy" seem to be based too much upon luck.

Also, I just completed the game on hard and after two playthroughs I'm only at 1500 kills. I didn't skip anything, so I don't know. Also I got the "Let it Flow" achievement at 900 kills so yeah.

Yeah, I got This Little Piggy by complete luck while trying to get Four to the Floor.
I got Let it Flow around 1800 kills. You must've really been cutting people up to get it so early.

Crusty,

If you cut off a body part of the big sword guy, your card will have his picture on it. Do his part last and if you notice your card on the side you will see his picture.

Even Demon has confirmed it. Try it and let me know.

Oh for the Let It Flow achievement, it can be unlocked at JUSTICE'S LEVEL.

Just ignore him, run around and keep slashing the big trees. Will take you good one hour. But I just had to try it.

Game is a decent 7.5/10. Would be alot better if camera wasn't inverted.

Kills carry over, blood spilled carries over, even time played carries over, IF you choose to carry over your stats. You can see all your stats in the Options menu from the Main menu. You can also hold down (click and hold) both thumbsticks while playing to see your stats.

EDIT: By the way, I put a video of all the Straight Flush achievements I found on youtube into this thread: HERE

Every time I try this, I either get a "doesn't count" or leg. I've tried 10 times now until all 3 cards were full. Every time, I got all legs.
From the looks of things there really is no consistent way of getting hands from the Kunoichi, it seems to be luck. Achievements shouldn't be based on luck. Think I'm gonna settle for 965/1000 on this game.
I agree, it’s very hard/luck based/inconsistent, but it is how I managed it and a few other members with the full 1000 GS, however w/ the light that’s been brought upon the swordsman limbs counting toward “your last needed kunoichi limb”, this achievement may become much easier...

EDIT: i got the female ninja straight flush by sheer luck. got hands and head at the same time with one slash.

Hope that helps bro; if you need ne thing else feel free to hit me up on XBL...
I wanted to make sure cause I'm half way through again on number 1 and it doesn't seem any harder.

Thanks,

Thanks for the guide, I just rented today, and hope to have it finished by tomorrow night. I haven't read every post, and I'm sure it is in here somewhere, but I just noticed that you can LVL select and pick up any momento's missed... I didn't read that in the guide, may want to add it to the first ACH description that if you miss one, not to worry too much, as you can go back to it without having to start the game over, or even finishing the level. Each momento stays in your inventory as you finish the levels. As soon as you get #5 on any level you can quit if you have beaten it already.

Might want to add a note on Doppleganger about the first memento, if you die while fighting Afrobot, you must go back and get the first one again, it doesn't save if you die. I know I got all 5 while going through the level, but I did die my 1st time fighting Afrobot, and at the end I only had 4. Reloaded the level, and the first one was still there.

The mementos don't really need a vid. I followed the written guide with absolutely no trouble, everything is written very well.

The only achievements I have left are completionist and kensei. If I start a new game on Hard will that erase the number of kills I already have, or does the count keep running?

Edit: I just took a chance and you can continue your progress onto a new game if anyone else was wondering.

For the Hundred Head Hunter, am I allowed to do the parry, then jump on their shoulders and slice their head off? Or do I have to do it just while in focus mode, while on the ground?

So I need help on the Empty Seven's Story.

I am playing on Hard and at the part where you fight wave after fucking wave. Its hard since you only get 1 life bear thing. So any tips on beating this level.

Does the bear regenerate or do I have to get lucky?

EDIT: Nevermind. I got it. I let the big guys charge and fall off the ledge. It was stupid and cheap but I don't care I got past it.

Whatever works man... if they can fall off, then so can you, and it is part of the game.

On a side note... these Straight Flush achievements have given me probably one of the biggest sense of accomplishments of any achievements in any game Ive played... and I only have 2 as of this post... and they are probably the easiest 2 lol.

EDIT: Got all the straight flush last night, and am a littl emore than halfway through my hard play. I should be able to return this sometime today with the full 1000 thanks to everyone that posted in here, you all were a huge help. Especially CrustyDirtDemon, thanks for taking extra time to help me through some tough spots.

Got a small tip if you are having trouble on hard... If you are very close to death... like 1 more hit ad you are gone, hold block. Doesn't always work against bosses, but your life will slowly recharge just enough to where one more hit wont kill you. You can hold off crowds by maintailing block until you get enough health to go back on the offensive. I did this on the last bridge in Doppleganger when I was having trouble getting past the last of the ninjas. Died 4 or 5 times, then used this, and passed it.

Its been my experience that its far easier to Perfect Parry followed by a pounce, then hold the X button to lob their heads off. I'm not quite sure what the hell this bonus is that it keeps asking for but I barely cut any heads with Focus and I got this achievement.

First off, great guide guys, it helped me with some of my achievements, but I need a bit of help with the The Samurai Ghost memento achievement in "THE EMPTY SEVEN'S STORY". I got the first memento before the elevator ride and I got the memento on the right side before the boss cube. I tried to get the memento in the middle from the right side, but Afro won't wall run and jump on the ledge nor will he grab it by jumping from the perch. So my question is, can you get back down to the floor from the top to get the left and middle mementos? Because it seems that every time that I try it always puts me back on the ledge that I jumped from. This happens no matter which memento that I try to get first, whether it's the left, middle or right
