I finally finished this game up. Thanks so much for this guide. It would've taken so much longer to get the Historian achievement without it. Very well done. Thanks again.

18.The Vita Chamber (Suchong) - Control Room, on the desk to the left of the entrance.

I can't back back in there, but it isn't marked by an asterik so, just wondering if anybody can help me out. Thanks.

I beleive that's one of the ones that you must pick up as you enter the room, because you can't go back.

(I've not played thie for ages, so I can't be 100% sure.) However, if I'm right, then the only way you can get it is by replaying... Sorry dude.

Yeah you can't go back there once you kill that guy (avoiding spoilers, you know who). I am 100% sure.

Search with telekinesis everywhere near... It wont dissappear cause i remember i missed 1 in Herphasteus that was in a corpse as well and after searching for a while, i found it, so maybe go to the next area (Neptunes Bount) and return, and see if it "repawns".

No, the doors lock there is no way back into his operating room. There was a report about this before, about door being locked. Never heard of the body disappearing though.

Yeah the people that missed this one apparently didn't play the game as hardcore as the original trailblazers.

Hmmm... i will load my save tomorrow and check, cause i never heard of doors locking but again, i didnt missed that diary and didnt went back for it so i cant tell... but i'll check on 1 of my saves.
Edit... so they were not close after all...
Glad telekinesis helped.

holy crap! so i go ahead and get all the rest while finishing the game just in case. once done i go back to the medical place and go in there with the telekenesis and search with it. mind you i have spent about 30 minutes in this room before, and out of nowhere it sucks a body up and it had the diary on it. thanks alot for the idea i got 1000 off one play through now if i can make myself go again.....

You made a major mistake!!!!!!

You forget to tell us you can't go back to daries 18, 19, 20 on Rapture Central Control!!!! Becuase you didn't tell me this, i wasted 5 hours trying to find these, but now i can even get them all becuase your guide which i was following never said you couldn't go back to these! fix this right away

I see other people have this problem too. Your guide is great though, just some minor mistakes

Well thats on faqs as well, how many questions/ comments are you going to make that are already there??? Seriously check it.
And not also is on faqs but those diarys were mentiones in tons of posts and threads so everyone who entered ussually on forums could see, i do agree the guide must be updated for the guys that are finishing until now (and didnt see the old threads), you could also send him a private message so he updates this, but if you had checked Faqs this wouldnt happened to you or everyone for that matter.

Sorry, but that is kind of a jerk thing to say. What about people who thought this guide was accurate and thus believed they didn't need to check an FAQ?

I wanted to avoid spoilers as much as possible but I also wanted to avoid multiple playthroughs if I could help it, so I checked the achievement guide but didn't go reading every FAQ and forum thread I could find. Unfortunately, due to those missing asterisks I was one single audio diary away from the Historian achievement.

Well 1st of all this game is so good you need to be a retard for only playing it once, i played the first one without any guides or anything to enjoy and gain whatever achievements i could, well i played it on hard cause i knew it was an achievement, then on my second playthrough i checked this guide and for my surprise i realized i had almost every diary without the guide so i just returned for the ones i needed, then on my 3 playthrough i did the brass balls long time from the first 2 playthroughs, i enjoyed all of them, this is an awesome game not some random shooter.
2nd if i got all the diarys that couldnt be found after you passed a certain part of the game, its cause they were hard to miss if you look around the rooms, the ones on Herphasteus were almost impossible to miss, while the ones on Welcome were easy as long as you explored, again this was mentioned so many times it was hard to miss it once you checked the guides.
Im not saying it shouldnt be updated, it should but if you checked the 1st page of Faqs this wouldnt happen to you or anyone and the reason i said that way to the other guy was cuase he made a thread for a question that was on Faqs as well, and as it says: "Look here before asking questions".

  3. **This one must be collected before leaving the control room, you can not return to this location.
The research phD requires to research all the splicers, big daddys, little sisters, security cameras, robots and turrets (this 3 dont give individual achievements but count towards phD)... if you have all the other research achievements then check on those 3 to see which ones are missing.

Thanks for the help and advice, appreciate it.

If I restart a new game and forget about the rest of the diaries, as soon as I get that one in the control room will the acheivement unlock ?

its possibly the turret ones i need. thinking about it.

Nope you have to collect all the diaries in the same playthrough, just be careful about the 2 diarys in welcome to rapture and the diaries in the control room in herphasteus those are the only ones you cant retrieve.
For the research remember that if you have complete the research of some kind on top a message will say: "Subject research complete, photo not taken."
