[737] Defense Grid: The Awakening - You Monster DLC [G+R]

http://www.xboxachievements.com/foru...d.php?t=583472

  • You Monster DLC
    • Difficulty: 3/10 (1/10 with video guides)
    • Time to 10: 6-8 hours
    • Unobtainable: None
The You Monster DLC consists of an 8 level campaign. The levels are Portal themed and features GLaDOS, who tries messing with you in various ways. She will make aliens stronger, faster, restrict your tower buiding and even remove some towers. In one level, you can only build Command towers, with GLaDOS building everything else. As you could imagine, this isn't doesn't happen to be too helpful. Also, if you zoom in you will see the cores are now itty bitty companion cubes!

The achievements are all pretty straightforward, and revolve around getting gold medals on each level. You will need to gold medal all Campaign and Campaign Challenge modes, and a total of 35 gold medals over the whole DLC. If you are comfortable with the game and enjoy a challenge, then by all means play through, using trial and error and perseverance; but there are plenty of videos online for the various maps and modes. Use this fantastic playlist which has all modes and maps with gold medals.

*Multiple users have reported the game freezing often whilst playing this DLC. There is also an occasional error message that flashes up, stating that an error has occurred and has failed to award an achievement. Ignore the error message, it is irrelevant. One possible fix for the freezing is to delete your game and the DLC, and then re-install. It is also advisable, especially on the Grinder and Super Grinder levels to exit out to the main menu periodically. This will save your progress, so if the game does freeze then you can start back close to where you were.

Majestic Pony 10
Earn a bronze medal on all story missions in the You Monster campaign.

See "You Monster"

Savant Genius 10
Earn a gold medal on any story mission past 'Divided Attention' in the You Monster campaign.

All levels are playable from the offset, so if you want this achievement right away, go ahead and pick any level apart from 'Ghost in the Machine' or 'Divided Attention'. An excellent playlist of gold medals on all maps and modes can be found here. If you decide to try going alone, there are many different ways to complete each and every level in this game to a gold medal standard. Remember to always ensure that the aliens are taking the longest possible routes so you have more time to kill them. If you make a mistake, you can hit to go to your last checkpoint; and hit it multiple times to go back further.

Beating a Dead Potato 10
Earn a gold medal on any 35 missions in the You Monster campaign.

There are a total of 42 missions in total, and for this you need to complete any 35 of them. As well as the 'Campaign' and 'Campaign Challenge' modes, there are various other modes such as 'Grinder' and 'Super Grinder' (up to 99 waves), 'Poison Core' (a single core that kills enemies when returning) and 'Frozen Core' (single core that doesn't return). You can pretty much use your solution for the Campaign levels, and just tweak them to the challenge stipulations. For example, the Grinder and Super Grinder levels, use your solution but upgrade more towers and add towers for the later levels. For Poison Core, just use your original solution but maybe a few less upgrades as the returning cubes will kill enemies on it's way back.

As you have seven map modes that you don't need to do, I would recommend skipping the Frozen Core challenges in particular as they are really difficult, you basically cannot have a single cube get taken at all.

These are the tougher levels, although of course the choise is yours!
