Splatterhouse Achievement Guide

Splatterhouse Achievement Guide

Difficulty: 7/10
Missable Achievements: 4, Collectibles Achievements
Time to 1k: 10-20hrs
Guide Completion: 100%.

This game has 8 story achievements, 19 grinding achievements, 15 special condition achievements, and 8 collectible achievements. For the most part it will all come in time, which is nice. Those that are somewhat more difficult I will highlight an easy way to do them, if I've found it. Also, for easier reading of the achievements, I've labeled each post/section with what it covers. An interesting thing about this game is that like Halo 3: ODST and others, as you get significant increments to overall totals, it will flash it on your screen. This is exceptionally useful for keeping tabs on your progress as well as letting you know you are on the right track. You can also view these by pressing the on the upgrade screen, as well as your current progress on the level's picture.

Playthrough 1
I suggest going with Savage on your first playthrough. It will make playing through on Brutal easier as you will be upgraded further, and you also will be somewhat more used to highly damaging enemies. You will want to get as many of the collectibles as possible on this playthrough. A collectibles guide can be found HERE. Focus on working on your grinding achievements as well. I conveniently put all of the grind achievements in the third post on this thread. Some of the key upgrades to grab while playing through the game are the Tackle Pack, Ram, Uppercut Overdrive, Weaponized Grab, Unstoppa-Bull, Tear you to Pieces, the weapon durability upgrades, all of the bonus health upgrades, and all of the Necro bar (mask) upgrades. Also, boss strategies are attached to their respective story achievements.

Playthrough 2
You should have unlocked Brutal difficulty in your first playthrough. Simply play through the game on Brutal difficulty, paying attention to what you might have missed while playing through the first time. Brutal difficulty will be a lot more unforgiving of mistakes, but seeing as how you will be massively upgraded over when you started originally, it shouldn't be a big deal. Besides, you know what to expect from most of the creatures, and all they really do is deal more damage. You should be able to finish your collectibles in this playthrough, as well as most of the grinding achievements.

Survival
The final part is cleaning up the survival mode and whatever grinding achievements you didn't finish. Check the achievement Jason Schmason as well as Too much Horror business for information on the achievements you get through this mode. An additional note is that the Survival Arenas each have their own unique picture that you find pieces of as you smash the green crates/chests that fall into the arena. Survival Arena can be difficult, however I have found that using Splatter Smash against large groups of small enemies is extremely helpful, and that it deals more damage against large enemies if you allow it to charge than Splatter Slash does. It's also easier to direct.

Editorial Notes
Other than boss fight info and some grammar and streamlining, I believe the guide is pretty much done. Due to space constraints, I had to severely shorten the boss strategies. If you have difficulty with the bosses and the new versions don't help, then tell me and I'll just write a Boss Strategy Guide too.

Story Achievements


The Beserker: 10
Complete Phase 2: The Doll that Bled.

Story Achievement, unmissable. The boss has 3 phases.
Phase 1:
This phase starts with the boss hurling furniture at you. Avoid it until he runs out. After that, he will start attacking you with a few different attacks. Take a little time to learn his attacks and their openings, and then abuse them. After you take him down, he will crash through the floor and you will have to beat him with a piece of himself by tapping the shown button repeatedly.
Phase 2: During phase 2 he will be chest height with the floor. His only real attack is a large sweeping attack, which can be jumped over if you are close to him. Otherwise, wait for him to jam his fist into the floor, and beat on it. Do this a few times, and he will smash through the floor again.
Phase 3: This phase starts like phase 1. It plays nearly identically to it as well, other than he recovers quicker and his attacks are a little more brutal. Once again, wear him down. After doing so, you will enter an interactive cutscene. Complete the cutscene, and you will finish the battle.


Be Garbage of Cesspool: 20
Complete Phase 4: The Meat Factory.

Story Achievement, unmissable. This boss has 4 phases.
Phase 1: During this phase just shoot him with the shotgun when he gets close. He will go down rather quickly, disappear, and then cut through the floor beneath you.
Phase 2: In this phase you must dodge his attacks and then counterattack, much like any other boss. Learn his attacks and exploit their weaknesses. After wearing him down you will be prompted to perform a grab attack on him.
Phase 3: Phase 3 plays nearly identically to phase 2, except he has a new attack and he has a lower recovery time between attacks. Once again avoid his attacks, hit him while he's recovering, and you will once again perform a grab attack, this time removing one of his chainsaw arms.
Phase 4: During this phase you use his own chainsaw against him. You can't roll with the chainsaw, but he really only has one attack now, and it is very short ranged and leaves a huge opening for a counterattack. Beat him down with the chainsaw until you are prompted to grab him, and the fight will be over.


Experiment 765 30
Complete Phase 6: Beast with a Human Heart

Story Achievement, unmissable. This boss has 3 phases.
Phase 1: Like the other bosses, the key is to learn his attacks. Be aware his exhale after his slam attack does damage you. Watch his method of attack, launch your counterattacks when you can, and you will enter an interactive cutscene where you jam one of his rods into his head.
Phase 2: Phase 2 is similar to Phase 1 except he has 2 new attacks. Otherwise, keep avoiding his attacks and jumping over his AoE slam while launching counterattacks, and you will once again enter an interactive cutscene where you rip one of the rods from him.
Phase 3: This phase plays just like Phase 2, but you have a weapon now. Your attacks will be more damaging, making this a significant bit shorter than the second phase. At the end of the phase, you are once again prompted to grab him, which ends in a cutscene.


Shattered Narcissus: 40
Complete Phase 8: Reflections in Blood

Story Achievement, unmissable. This boss has 5 phases.
Phase 1: During the first phase you fight your image which uses some of your own moves. See which ones he uses, avoid them, and launch short counterattacks. Keep at it until you kill him.
Phase 2: This phase has you fighting 3 of yourself at once. They are about equal to a forgotten strength and damage-wise, so just go to town, trying to avoid getting ganged up on. After a few waves, you fight the tougher Evil Rick again.
Phase 3: In this phase you once again fight yourself with the same moveset from Phase 1 along with adding Splatter Slash and Splatter Smash. Work him over, getting in your counterattacks, until he falls again.
Phase 4: During this phase the battle really changes. You will fight the weak versions of yourself you fought in Phase 2 along with a Berserker mode Evil Rick. Your best bet is to use Berserker mode yourself, as you will be able to destroy the lesser Evil Ricks instantly and deal a good chunk of damage to the Berserker Evil Rick. If you run out of Necro, just kill the lesser Evil Ricks until you are filled up again. This ends in an interactive cutscene where you tear the arms off of Evil Rick.


Pyre of the Damned: 50
Complete Phase 10: The Wicker Bride

Story Achievement, unmissable. This is not an actual boss battle level, but a timed event. There are 3 phases to the event. I highly suggest checking out the collectibles guide HERE before doing this section so you waste as little time as possible.
Phase 1: You have 3 minutes to complete this part. Your best bet is to simply run through all the gates until you are forced to fight a few waves of forgotten with the blue veined ghouls. There is a sword in the nearby in the crates in the corner near where the waves spawn if you need it. Kill them as fast as possible, and run into the next portal when you are able to.
Phase 2: The clock will have 2:20 minutes added to it. Kick through the gate and dodge the large fish demon, running past it. After a cutscene, you will be surrounded by fishhead forgotten. Run through the gate ahead, along the pathway, into the next courtyard, kick through the gate, run the path again avoiding the fishhead forgotten at the end, and into the courtyard. Kill off the 3 huge fist demons with Berserker mode if possible, and hop into the portal.
Phase 3: Kill the fishhead forgotten and climb the wickerman. "Jen" will attack you, and you will have to shake your left stick to throw her off of you. After stomping her to death, you pass through another portal, and the level is over.


Bride of the Corrupted: 100
Complete the game on any difficulty

Beat the game on Coward or Savage difficulty. Unlocks Brutal Difficulty.


Walk with Death: 110
Complete the game on "Savage" difficulty (or harder)

Beat the game on Savage difficulty or Brutal Difficulty.


Dreams of the Dead: 120
Complete the game on Brutal difficulty

Beat the game on Brutal Difficulty. Brutal difficulty is unlocked after you complete the game once on any other difficulty.

Grinding Achievements


Death Came Ripping: 5
Kill an enemy with Splatter Slash

See Downpour of Blood.


Razor of Hell: 5
Get 100 kills with Splatter Slash

See Downpour of Blood.


Must Kill: 5
Kill an enemy with Splatter Smash

See Downpour of Blood.


Downpour of Blood: 5
Kill 100 enemies with Splatter Smash

Hold down the and press to execute a Splatter Slash, or to execute a Splatter Smash. This can also be done in Berserker Mode, but you must have unlocked Splatter Slash and Splatter Smash while playing through the game before you will be able to earn kills towards these achievements. Phase 1's Foyer is a great place to get kills towards this without having to worry about your Necro meter.


Flesh Re-animation!: 5
Regenerate with Splatter Siphon

Hold down and and press to activate Splatter Siphon. Requires at least 1 Necro bar to be activated.


One Who Slays: 5
Get 300 kills in Berserker Mode

After completing phase 2 for the first time you will unlock Beserker Mode, something you get a small taste of at the very beginning of the game. Once this is unlocked you can activate Beserker Mode by tapping , provided you have at least 3 Necro bars filled. Should unlock over time. The Phase 1 foyer is once again a good place to get kills. The kills still count even if you quit the level afterwords and restart.


Heavy Frikkin' Metal!: 5
Get 50 kills with non-fleshy weapons

See Triumph of Iron.


Triumph of Iron: 15
Get 500 kills with non-fleshy weapons

Non-fleshy weapons stands all items that aren't heads, arms, or any part of something's body. Near the beginning of the game you won't see many weapons, but in the late game you will almost never be without one. Also, Weaponized Grab from the Weapons upgrade group can be helpful for this achievement.


See you at the Party: 5
Kill an enemy with an enemy's arm

See None More Dead.


None More Dead: 10
Get 150 kills with enemy arms
You can use the Weaponized Grab under the Weapons upgrade group to instantly kill an enemy while holding any weapon, making this achievement a bit easier. To get arms, either perform Splatterkills on the human-size ghoul monsters, use the machete to cut an enemy up, or using Tear you to Pieces under the Grab upgrade group by pressing and then again once you have grappled them.


Tongue in Cheek: 5
Kill an enemy with an enemy's head

See Head on Arrival.


Head on Arrival: 10
Get 50 kills with enemy heads

There are a few ways to get enemy heads. The demons with the tentacle arm can be killed with a Splatterkill, giving you their head as a weapon. If you have Tear you to Pieces, you can also perform Stretchin' Necks by pressing to grapple the enemy and then pressing and holding until you perform the move. Power Head Throw from the Weapons upgrade group is helpful as well towards this achievement. A good place to get head kills is in Phase 4 in the room with the 4 chairs you slam enemies onto. Slam 3 onto chairs, and only 1 enemy will continue to spawn. Use Stretchin' Necks to remove his head, and kill his replacement with the head.


You Got Red on You: 5
Splat an enemy on a wall with a weapon

See The Blackest of Sundays.


Blood and Lightning: 5
Splat 100 enemies on a wall with a weapon.

See The Blackest of Sundays.


The Blackest of Sundays: 10
Splat 200 enemies on a wall with a weapon.

Not to hard but a little confusing at first. To splat an enemy on the wall, simply use a weapon such as the lead pipe or 2x4 and attack an enemy near a wall. You can also use enemy body parts such as arms. You should send them flying into the wall. Using + while holding a weapon will send enemies flying into the wall almost every time. I've found this to be especially effective on side scrolling sections where you have weapons available. The only weapons that this doesn't work for are cutting weapons like the chainsaw, and the shotgun.


The Business of Killing: 5
Perform a Splatterkill.

See Vigorous Vengeance.


South of Hell: 5
Perform 75 Splatterkills.

See Vigorous Vengeance.


Vigorous Vengeance: 10
Perform 150 Splatterkills.

Grapple an enemy with when they take on the red outline and perform the command(s) it tells you to. Most of the enemies have 1 of 2 ways you will do the splatter kill. There are parts in the game where enemies will spawn infinitely until a certain condition is met, such as the end of phase 3, which are very helpful if you want to rack up Splatterkills.


Boreworm Massacre: 10
Stomp on 1000 Boreworms

Boreworms are those red worms that pop out of crates when you smash them. You can walk over the top of them, or my personal favorite for killing a bunch at once is to use an unarmed heavy attack on them, since it has a shockwave included in it. Just break crates, barrels, and everything else to find these until you've unlocked the achievement.

Special Condition Achievements


Morbid Dismemberment: 5
Kill an enemy with your own dismembered arm

There are enemies throughout the game that can cut off your arm, one of the more common ones being the blue veined ghoul creatures you run into. Additionally, as with None More Dead, if you upgrade your weapon durability you should easily be able to take out an enemy before your arm breaks. Also, the Weaponized Grab from the Weapons upgrade group will kill an enemy off instantly, netting you this achievement.


Brain Dead: 5
Tackle an enemy and pummel it 20 times

This is best done on a higher difficulty where enemies can take more hits before dying. You probably won't be able to unlock this until late game, but to perform this attack, unlock Tackle Pack from the Sprint/Roll upgrade group, press and hold and then press to tackle an enemy to the ground, and then tap repeatedly. An easy place to get this is during Phase 3 right after the train wreck. Kill off all except one of the Forgotten, and then tackle and pummel the last one. You should leave the one you plan to pummel untouched.


Bad Taste: 5
Impale an enemy on a spike

This is done during phase 2 for the first time, and is a requirement of progressing the story. It cannot be missed. Simply grab the enemy with and then face the spike and press to kick or throw them into the spike.


Army of Dead Evil: 5
Kill 6 enemies within 1 second

The easy way to get this is in the room during phase 2 with the 4 little ghoul creatures on the bed eating the human remains. Simply get close to them, wait for a few more to close in, and use Splatter Siphon (+) to drain them all, also killing them all. For additional methods, see Headlong into Monsters.


Headlong into Monsters: 5
Kill 6 enemies in one ram attack

Requires the Ram attack from the Sprint/Roll upgrade group. Hold and press to charge through enemies. This can be picked up in the side scrolling sections fairly easily when a lot of enemies group up, in Phase 2 shortly after the spiked death wall section in a room after kicking open the door, or in phase 4 after the side scrolling section in the room where a bunch of the ghouls climb down the walls to attack you. Just make sure to let them bunch up a bit. Unlocking Psycho Ram from the Sprint/Roll upgrade group can be helpful if you are having difficulty getting this achievement.


POW!: 5
Launch an enemy up with "No Head Room"

Requires Uppercut Overdrive attack from the Heavy Attacks upgrade group. After you have it, simply press and then hold down and you will knock the enemy into the air. This shares a button set with Thrash You Up, so it might take a few tries to unlock this.


Barrels of Blood: 5
Get 2000 or more BLOOD Points in one chain of attacks

This achievement is not overly difficult to get. During a battle with a boss who has minions, use Berserker Mode to kill off the minions and then attack the boss. You should be able to rack up 2000 blood using this method. Note that the achievement doesn't unlock until AFTER you finish your current phase, not right when it's done.


Killer of Killers: 5
Get an S-Rank in Survival Arena Mode

See Jason Schmason.


Anvil Horror: 15
Get 3 S-Ranks in Survival Arena Mode

See Jason Schmason.


Jason Schmason: 50
Get 6 S-Ranks in Survival Arena Mode

One of the best ways to get a S-Rank in any Survival Arena is liberal use of Splatter Slash or Splatter Smash on large groups of enemies (+, +), and when against an Aegis make sure to ram them (+) and then Splatter Slash them for an easy quick kill. Sometimes using Ram on a monster can be difficult, but I find that Splatter Smash fully upgraded does great immediate area damage as well as having a very long ranged damage attack, allowing you to hit enemies that tend to run away without worry that they might disappear or run away. Also, against smaller enemies that back away from you, I've found that Ram is excellent, though using Ram while holding a weapon is even more effective as it's nearly guaranteed to hit and kill them. The real key though is to finish the Survival Arena as quickly as possible. Don't worry about Secret Missions, taking the time to get them will negatively impact your overall score.


Death on the Rise: 5
Accomplish 5 Secret Missions in a single Survival Arena attempt

See Too much Horror business.


Too much Horror business: 10
Accomplish all 10 Secret Missions in a single Survival Arena attempt

This achievement will unlock after the 10th secret mission is completed, regardless of if you finish the arena. The Secret Missions are as follows:
No Damage for 1 minute
No Damage for 120 seconds
Successfully perform 5 Splatterkills
Successfully perform 20 Splatterkills
Kill 25 Enemies in Berserk Mode
Kill 50 Enemies in Berserk Mode
Stomp on 20 Boreworms
Stomp on 50 Boreworms
Kill 10 enemies with any flesh weapon
Kill 25 enemies with any flesh weapon


Hunger Pangs: 5
Purchase a Skill

Simply unlock your first skill after you are introduced to the upgrade system. This is story related and cannot be missed.


Blood Lust: 25
Unlock 25 skills

See Lust for After Life.


Lust for After Life: 50
Unlock all skills

Simply unlock all of the skills in the upgrades menu. It is interesting to note that while Survival mode gives you kills towards your achievements, it does not give BLOOD points, so if you somehow find yourself needed more BLOOD points, you have to play through the story. Also, some upgrades are not available until they are unlocked via the story.

It's really nice to see guides this early!
I haven't got the game yet, but this looks helpful. Good luck with the rest of the guide!

I can tell you, for the "unlock x% of Dr. West's journal" it seems to be driven by both stages completed and skills bought. I just bought my 25th for Blood Lust, and unlocked "Nightmare in Arkham" with it, which is 25% of his journal.

Other things you can add to the guide:

For Head on Arrival, do + to tackle (Tackle Pack), then hit a couple of times. Most enemies' heads will pop off and you can use those. Also, on the enemy with the tentacle for an arm and a horned head, if you do the Splatterkill on him (where you choke him with his own tentacle arm) it'll always pop his head off. Same with the enemy with the giant club for an arm. His Splatterkill has you pull his head in and out by mashing one button, then using the joysticks to pull his head off.

For None More Dead (kills with an arm), there's an move you can buy (Tear you to Pieces) where you press , , and it rips off arms to use as a weapon. For both I would recommend buying the weapon durability skills

You shouldn't have to farm them too much as long as you're actively trying for it throughout the game.

For Headlong into Monsters (Kill 6 enemies with one ram) and Army of Dead Evil (kill 6 enemies within one second) these shouldn't be a problem, but if you really can't get them, there is a room in the second phase where you open the door to a small room and there are six weak enemies huddled together that you can just plow into. If you just need Army, + to Keep Your Pimp Hand Strong and net you that achievement.

Awesome guide so far, keep it up!

I'll make sure I add this when I do some more updating. Taking about an hour or so break to actually play the game. I've done this php/html/bbcode stuff before, but it's kind of draining at times.

Just did a MASSIVE amount of editing and adding to this guide. Am still looking for help on a few sections. After screwing with this for the past 3 hours, I'm burnt out. :P

A couple more things for you:

1) Here's the most important thing I've discovered. In Survival Arena, when you fight the squids (Aegis) that make all the other enemies invincible, use the Ram move ( + ) to stun them, then if you have a necro bar, use + to slice them in half. It's an instant kill and A THOUSAND times easier than stunning and wailing on them.

2) POW! (Launch an enemy up with No Head Room) you have to buy the first skull in the Heavy Attacks row - "Uppercut Overdrive". Then press , then hold and release to pop them in the air for the achv.

3) Morbid Dismemberment - You don't have to wear them down to kill them with your own arm if you already have upgraded your weapon durability.

4) One Who Slays - If you farm the beginning of the game (where you stay in berserk mode) on Savage, you can get 36 kills.

And correction: The kill six guys at once is in the second stage. After you beat the long hallway with moving spike walls, you will re-enter the mansion proper. In this first room, turn right, and kick in the door to the right of the gramophone. In here, they are all huddled in the middle of the room. It's the room with the gramophone in the back left that says "My work still requires subjects."

Barrels of Blood: Get 2000 or more BLOOD Points in one chain of attacks. This isn't too hard to in later levels in some of the boss fights you can get it even on coward diff (how i got was my first playthru).

Headlong into Monsters: Kill 6 enemies in one ram attack.
Easiest to do on one of the sidescrolling sections just wait for a set of Homini to come on screen and use RT + Y to blast'em works especially well with Psycho Ram Upgrade.

Brain Dead: Tackle an enemy and pummel it 20 times.
This is actually best done in any chapter with the Fishhead Forgotten, (the green bastards who leap in the air and spit at you, or dive underground to attack). Just clear out most while making sure to avoid one completely and then use Tackleram to grab him and just pound em with X will get you at least 21-22 hits and the achievement.

None More Dead: Get 150 kills with enemy arms.
I would like to add that having Weaponized Grab purchased helps with this so that you do the Corpse Pinata attack which is a one hit kill and just requires the use of the B button near an enemy.

Arenas Secret Missions are all fairly simple but tedious dont expect to S-Rank while doing them and they reset if you get screwed by a blue Homini thing taking your head off from behind

No Damage for 1 minute
No Damage for 120 seconds
Successfully perform 5 Splatterkills
Successfully perform 20 Splatterkills
Kill 25 Enemies in Berserk Mode
Kill 50 Enemies in Berserk Mode
Stomp on 20 Boreworms
Stomp on 50 Boreworms
Kill 10 enemies with any flesh weapon
Kill 25 enemies with any flesh weapon

Hope these help some

Thank you both for the info, and also thanks Carnage for the collectibles guide. I linked it in the 2 collectibles achievements as well as in the initial playthrough. Wish you both a good turkey day, back to editing come black Friday.

Wow guys thanks for doing this so early. Awesome!
I only just got the game today, I actually have it early as here in the UK it's not out until the 26th. Can't wait to start playing.

Just wondering, do the difficulty achievements stack?
Also, how does Brutal unlock? Do you have to do it on Savage first or does Coward work? I was thinking of maybe doing it on Coward and focusing on the collectibles etc., then doing it on Brutal and just focusing on staying alive, rather than doing it as-in the guide. Is that possible?

Cheers

Thank you Sir, Happy Turkey Day to you as well and excellent guide, and yes the difficulties do stack so you could do it on Coward then go and do it on Brutal.

Alright thanks. Just to be sure, Brutal does unlock after playing it on ANY difficulty yeah? Wouldn't want to have to play it through 3 times

Thanks for the guide, and for putting it up so early. This game pleasantly surprised me with it's bad-assery! The music is awesome, and who doesnt want to be called a "noob" or a "pussy" when dying? (heh heh) Again, many thanks and happy thanksgiving.

Heads up Electro. I just got Razor of Hell, He Who Slays, and Downpour of Blood by redoing the start of Phase 1, when you have infinite Berserk. So it can be done. I was doing that for my 300 Berserk kills, and Downpour unlocked first, so after I got He Who Slays, I kept going, and sure enough, Razor popped. Might want to add that to the guide!

Also, the collectibles guide is done, so there's all 44 photos and Gramophones from Story Mode. If you want Happy Ending you'll have to also get the 6 photos from Survival Arena. They will be in the green chests at every 5 level interval.

For S-Rank, using the Splatter Smash and Slash moves when all enemies are bunched up saves A LOT of time. Also, on the Aegis (the squid that makes other enemies invincible) ram it, then use the Splatter Slash to insta-kill it.

Thanks for the further information, I'll add it. I've been considering fleshing out the credits section at the beginning of the guide to include each area a person helped with instead of directly in the comments, so should this guide be chosen, it's cleaner. But, I also don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. So it's your guys' choice. In the achievement, or a credits section?

Whatever works for me. If you want to put it at the start, I agree, it would look cleaner.

ANOTHER note to add, btw, Too Much Horror Business unlocks right when you finish the 10th secret mission in Arena, whereas Barrels of Blood unlocked when I completed Phase 8.

When I got Too Much Horror Business, I still got a D, so the secret missions are not the key to S-Rank.

Thanks for that info Genetic. I've added it to the guide, and right now what I'm working on is boss strategies as well as "key" upgrades which will help you through the game. They are all very helpful, but I'm talking more about ones that are pretty much absolutely must have upgrades, such as Tackle Pack and Uppercut Overdrive, to complete achievements and generally just get through the game.

Electro,

Maybe you should add that Razor of Hell and Downpour of Blood can be grinded out at the beginning, once you've unlocked those two abilities. Like I said, it isn't really necessary, but if you're a few short after you beat the game, it's a REALLY easy place to get them. Otherwise, they're just about essential to getting S ranks.

Also, I found another move to help with the Head on Arrival achievement. "Stretchin' Necks" is found in the Moves List under Barehand. It says "Requires 'Tear You to Pieces' to be unlocked." I never used it personally, but I just stumbled upon it. It's , hold . You slam them down, and pull their head off. The demo shows it being done on the spiky little grunt (in Halo terms LoL)

For House That West Built, you can click on Stats on the main menu. If you press down on this screen, it will show completion stats. Survival Mode Progression fills as you get higher ranks, with an S rank filling the bar completely. All of these things count towards 100% of the journal. Overall Progression is what percent you are currently at.

One of the ProTips on the load screen says that Dr West's journal entries unlock at every 5% completion rate.

For Shattered Narcissus
Spoiler! (click here to reveal)

I'll add that, thank you.

Also, read your spoiler just now. Funny, I got barrels of blood on accident during the Evil Rick fight. :P

Yeah, I put it in spoiler form in case people didn't want to know who the boss was if they were just skimming your guide. And btw, your roadmap still says 50% done, but later you put that it's pretty much complete LoL

You could hit up one of the signature makers (like WhIpLaSh 014 in my collectible guide thread) and ask them to make you a set of slick sigs for each part of your guide. "Grinding achievements", "Story Mode" "Survival Arena", etc...

Just a thought.

Thanks Kage, I appreciate it. I had a lot of fun writing my guide (had to take out a lot of jokes and personal anecdotes to clean it up LoL) so I'd like to write another one soon. Right now though, I'm doing Super Meat Boy, Castlevania LoS, Fable 3, Rock Band 3, Halo Reach, Fallout New Vegas, and Force Unleashed 2, and ALL of them already have guides.

I'm so obsolete!

I know it sucks right? Hell, I was gonna do one for the new pac man DX but there was a guide up about how to 200 it before I even downloaded the game. I was lucky to walk into this forum and barely see so much as a post, I loved writing the guide and plan to write another one should I get the chance.

Hey guys

I just beat the game on coward mode and Ive gotten all the upgrade skills.

Question is, if I wish to play on savage mode, by starting a new game, will all my stats be erased?
