I also found that concentrating on the ones in the center and letting the ones on the side pass by was very helpful. The most damaging ones seem to come from the center and if you are distracted by the side ones, the center fills up and you're screwed.

Very challenging achievement. Must have took 50 tries for me. I had to become the zen master and I finally got it after overcoming my impatience.

I beat this on easy though it was a crapshoot. As anyone will tell you, its random and not based on difficulty. Its still ridiculously hard yet ultimately very satisfying.

Yep this worked for me too. I failed miserably 3 times in a row. Before I started the fourth time I reviewed the hints on the guide in this forum- primarily focus on those in the center. Well I passed with flying colors my 4th try, I still had 74% when the level was over.

The smaller astroids that pass on the far left or right will usually either miss you completely or will only take off 2%.

Well after about 15 tries I got it (with the helpful tips that I found here), just find the ones that work for you. For me it was:

Brightness (game option)
Brightness and Contrast on TV cranked up (42 inch LCD 1080p)
Sat about 4 feet from the screen
Opened the air lock
Sound turned low or muted (missed the achievement bloop though, does that lessen the satisfaction?)
oh yeah, and remained calm, OOOHHHHMMMM......

Whew good to know as I'm on my Impossible run right now and was not looking forward to this part....

I think I have yet to hit an "easy" script everyone keeps referring to. Loading up one of my easy difficulty saves I've gone through it about 20 times or more in frustration as every time he says "just one more minute" suddenly anywhere from 2 to 4 huge asteroids appear, and a double barrel blast from the cannon has not been an insta-kill, it only shatters them into smaller pieces so I end up with upwards of 8 fast-moving smaller asteroids to contend with going in all directions.

Have been knocked from 70% to 30% the blink of an eye in that last minute....

BUGGER!! BUGGER!! BUGGER!!

EDIT: got to this part last night on Impossible run, and tried a few times. Got mauled each time at best with 38%, finally on my third attempt I said screw it when I barely scraped out with only 3% left LOL!!! Time to move on in the campaign but I saved it to a new slot if I ever get that sadistic itch again....

I only have two achievements left...this and beating Impossible. I'm lucky to even pass the level with 3%. Not sure how I'm going to get 50%. The best I've ever done (out of 10 or so tries) was 28%.

This is going to take awhile.

+1.

Vent atmosphere: check.
Crank brightness: check.
Stand 8 inches from 46" HDTV: check.
Tell Hammond "THIS IS SPARTAAAAAAA!" then smash him with the mute button: check.

Took almost two hours (1hr 56min, actually... I got lots of luck, but it's all bad), but I finished it with 57%.

If I hear there's a sequence like this in Dead Space 2, I'm boycotting it.

Got to this part on my Impossible run, and it took about 12-13 tries for me. For starters I'm not great at Shooters...good, just not great, so this was pretty hard for me. I eventually calmed down and focused and got it with 63%. Only achievement left is to finish Epic Tier 3 Engineer.

I'm f*cking hating this achievement right now! I'm having an easier time with my Epic Tier 3 Engineer runthrough. What a piece of sh*t achievement, especially when you finish with 48 Hull Integrity. Thankfully, my controller is still in tact...although, I'm not sure for how much longer.

It took me several tries. One to learn how to shoot that damn gun, and another to learn what's up with the asteroids. I made it though!

This achievement was the only one I needed to go out of my way to do. At first it's a bit frustrating, yeah, but you need to pick and choose which asteroids to go after. Some scripts are relentless with tons of huge asteroids while peppering you with small ones on the opposite side. For the most part I ended up using a single gun on the small asteroids at first while it's still relatively calm and then busted out double barrel on the big ones/clusters of tiny ones to obliterate them with minor aim adjustment.

Brightness all the way up does seem to help you pick up the asteroids a bit quicker. For the most part leave the fringe ones alone and concentrate on those that you know will hit you. The fringe ones will either miss or do little damage. Really not difficult if you get a good script (most of them seem pretty easy). I got this on my round 2 going for Maxed Out and only reset about three times.

That happened to me 3 times, yes THREE TIMES right before I finally got it with 59%...What a pain in the arse!

I followed all the advice on here but the thing that really got me through it was turning the volume off. It's amazing how zen the experience was once I didn't have all the nerve wracking sound effects blasting in my ears.

I second this, also I used the ZOOM feature on my TV to get even closer to the asteroids, did on about my 8th try...
