I'm going to miss so many of these. -_- They just seem like easy objects to overlook.

Go away from the guiding arrow to find many of these. I'm currently using the ign walkthrough because it's got a mobile version. Very easy to follow.

Friendly Fire has got you covered! We got half of them in this first one and the other half is going up tonight!

Does anyone know if these carry over playthroughs? The Infused with Greatness achievement specifies "in a single game" whereas this one doesn't...

To answer my own question, these DO carry over, as do voxophones :)

I got 36 without using any guide and i was hoping i'll get the last one at the very and but i didn't. So now i'm wondering there is a way to go back by using the chapters and get the one that i missed ?

Is this glitched for anyone else? A lot of the kinetescopes I am looking at are not counting for me.

It really sucks that chapter select doesnt show what chapter you missed them in

I only missed 4 and it would be nice to chapter select to get them...glad it carries over tho

@VanillaRAOS Possibly because you only need to view each unique kinetoscope once. Some of them appear in multiple locations.

These do carryover on a new game. I am doing my second play through with a guide and only need five more. Verifying what has been stated above.

This is the achievement that is standing between me and 1000. To make matters worse, I don't know which telescope/kinetiscope I missed. :( Guess I'll just have to go through the game on easy, cause I don't feel like hopping from chapter to chapter.

I went through all of them, and it still says I have 36/37. BLARG!

Same, Reaqer...wouldn't be so bad if I knew which one I missed...

I know a lot of people HATE collectible achievements, but I'm very glad this one and the eavesdropper one were included. Without the voxophones, kinetoscopes, and telescopes, you would miss a TON of the world and the story, and the game would fall flat. (It's not like collecting feathers and flags for no reason *cough cough*.) So, if I'm going to be searching most of these things out for the story anyway, I'm grateful for the extra G-score incentive and reward for finishing.

The whole achievement list, while pretty standard, was solid and ALL of them added to the game experience rather than distracting from it. I'd rate the list a 90 for that reason, not a 70.

So I just finished the game twice (the 2nd time on 1999 mode without using the Dollar Bills). The second time, I followed a guide for finding each telescope/kinectoscope. I followed it to the letter. And I ended the game with 36/37!? WTF!!!????

Seems to work with all playthroughs. Got most my 1st time through, going through 1999 now and came across one i didn't know about near the beginning and it came up with 35/37.

Missed this on Scavenger Hunt playthrough. Replayed on easy.
First, early on after exiting "Order of the Raven", on balcony before going on skyhooks again, check the left side; it's on the police barge.
Second, late in the game, before boarding barge taking you to "Hand of the Prophet", check left side of platform (when facing barge).
Telescopes do not shine like other collectibles, so they're real easy to miss if you're not actively looking. I feel these 2 were the easiest to miss.
