DeathSpank is back in an all new adventure! Thongs of Virtue is the sequel to DeathSpank and takes place almost immediately after the events of the first game. It provides the same 2D pop up story book graphics as well as the copious amounts of colors used in your surroundings that the first DeathSpank was known for. It also continues to provide the unique RPG elements with the explosive amounts of action that DeathSpank is know for getting himself into, as well as giving the player enough to laugh at with it's crude humor dialog and overall comedic feel of the game. Everything that DeathSpank brought to the table, ToV has taken it and made it better. The main changes between the two games is the modern day setting in ToV, which now has guns, planes, grenades, etc. Enough to make this sequel as explosive and exciting, yet still provide the unique and simple gameplay that the first game made us all come to know and love.
DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue is like it's predecessor and provides a simple yet wonderful experience. Although the achievements now require a little bit more effort, they can still be achieved fairly easily. Since the game does think you've played the first DeathSpank, many of the tips you're given in the first game are not brought back in the second. However, the game can be played on Downtrodden (Easy) and there is no limit to how many times you can die, so it's not that difficult, nor is it really time consuming. Most of the achievements will be earned during the game, while only a few (if any) need to be obtained after you've beaten the game. Simply put, just play through the game, and you'll have all the achievements in no time.
There is one achievement that you MUST get before doing a certain quest, otherwise you won't be able to get it on that playthrough and will need to start a new game. The achievement is Primp V.I.P. and tips on how to unlock it at shown below. Just about everything else else can be achieved without having to worry about doing another playthrough, even the two endings achievement, since you can just reload a checkpoint.
Konichiwa is also missable if you do not speak with the Japanese judge before you start the cook-off. In some games during the fight with Wortten, she'll take the judge and eat him and if you did not speak with the judge beforehand and went straight to the orphan, the book on how to learn Japanese will not become available and you will need to do another playthrough.
My suggestion for Dispenser of Justice, A True Hero, and Mystic Transport are to complete them before you finish the last main quest. Although these are technically not missable, you cannot continue playing after you've beaten the game, aside from reloading checkpoints. Although you will get these over time, depending on what areas you skip or the difficulty you play on, you still might have a few more enemies to kill, or a couple of Outhouses left undiscovered, or you might be a level 18 or 19. Follow the tips for each of these achievements, and you'll have no problem getting them.
There are a total of 2 awards (3 if you count the female/male version of the shirt.) To see the avatar awards, click on this link: Link
Although there are only two glitchy (not glitched) achievements: Konichiwa and Dispenser of Justice, there is a bug that not only causes you to not be able to finish the game, but also makes it so that you can't unlock Ruin Christmas, A Tale of Two Endings and Mystic Transporter. During the part at the North Pole, if you're game DOES NOT have Roodolph in the Reindeer pen, you will not be able to acquire the Reindeer Earmuffs, and therefore will not be able to get past Santa's scream. Apparently Hothead games are trying to see if they can fix this as well as the other glitches, but until then, you'll need to do another playthrough or wait until the solution is fixed.

|Convince an Orque Guard you are an Orque||(2)|
This is most likely the first achievement you’ll get and it’s a fairly simple one. In order to get out of the POW camp, you'll need to find a way to get past the guards. After speaking with the three POW soldiers in the POW yard, you’ll have a bunch of quests that need to be completed. These quests are:
|Death of a Penguin||15|
|Kill the Evil Nun||(3)|
The quest you need to complete for this achievement is 'The Thong of Compassion'. The Evil Nun is found in the Sanctuary up in the north in the top right of the map just east of Strumfuquel. When you first reach the Sanctuary, you will be blocked by the Monk of Admittance. To be able to get past the Monk, you must be in critical condition (when you're in critical condition, hearts will blink on the screen, while you hear the sound of a heart beat.) After you get past the Monk, you'll walk up the stairs to see two monks arguing. Convince them to go swim otherwise during the fight with the Nun, they'll join in to defend her. Finally, speak with the monk next to the door. Make sure that he goes inside twice. After the second time, you can go in.
|See all 20 of Madame Primp's Outfits|
*This achievement is missable!*
|Get an Engineering Degree|
For this achievement, you'll need to get rid of all the things blocking the train on the tracks. The tracks run from the edge of Strumfuquel all the way to the end of the desert. Even though it seems like a long way, there are only three quests that need to be completed. They are:
After you've completed all this, follow the tracks all the way down to the end of the map and you'll see an engineer that is not highlighted. Walk up to him and talk and you'll enter a cutscene with DeathSpank getting an education. After the cutscene is finished, the achievement will unlock.
|Raise Your Mast||10|
|Go Sailing in a Pirate Ship|
You'll actually get the quests for the pirate ship early off, but you won't be able to complete one of them until after you kill Wortten. The quests are fairly simple, and once you finish them, you'll be able to use the Pirate Ship to get to the North Pole and the other islands. The three quests you need to complete are:
Once you've done these three quests, return back to Captain Taint and he'll say that you're all set. Go straight until you reach the pirate ship and the achievement will be yours.
|Learn to Speak Japanese||(2)|
*This achievement is missable*
|Dispenser of Justice||25|
|Kill 3000 Enemies||(2)|
This achievement will come over time as you play through the game. Anything that attacks you counts as an enemy. To see your total amount of kills so far, visit your inventory, and use the Book-o-Stats. If you somehow did not get 3000 by the time the game is over, just revisit areas since enemies respawn after a while. You might get this achievement before or after you reach 3000 kills. I've seen people on the leaderboard that have only 2500 kills and already have the achievement, while I myself didn't get the achievement until about 3100 kills. Just keep at it until it unlocks.
|To Serve Man||20|
Once you have all the necessary items to become an employee, you will then be able to enter Wortten's Office. There you will meet Wortten and be challenged to a cook off. When you go to the Japanese judge, he'll tell you what he likes. Sadly, the choices are randomized, and therefore are not always the same. If you do choose the correct options, the judge will favor you and send his ninjas to attack Wortten instead. Wortten by herself isn't much of a challenge if you use the same technique as you did with the Evil Nun. However, Wortten can regenerate health by eating the ninjas and judges. Use the combination of weapons to get your justice attack faster, which will obviously deal more damage. Keep doing this, since she'll eventually stop bothering you and just go for the ninjas. She is level 17, and can regenerate her health, so make sure you have potions available at the ready. By using your best strategies that you've used on previous bosses, it will help you with slaying Wortten.
|A True Hero||30|
|Reach Level 20||(2)|
There are a total of 21 levels in DeathSpank: Thong of Virtue, however this achievement only requires you to reach level 20. Even playing on easy, you'll be able to reach level 20 no problem. You don't get XP for is killing level 0 opponents. Do quests, and kill every enemy in your path. The best area for XP is in the Mysterious Cave in the Snowy Mountain area in the top right of the world map. You can easily gain over two levels per go in the cave since the cave is very large. It's so large, that when you're finished with the cave, you can return back to the beginning and the enemies will have already respawned.
|Discover all 44 Teleporting Outhouses||(3)|
Like the first DeathSpank, the best way to get around the map in the game is through the use of magical Outhouses. To 'discover' an Outhouse, go near the general area of the Outhouse and you'll see that it's been activated. Outhouses are large brown buildings that are mostly found on the side of roads and usually right before a difficult part of an area. They're not hard to spot and you can easily see them in the area maps. Don't be mistaken about the Outhouses inside any caves or in the POW Camp. Since they're Out-Of-Order, they don't count for this achievement. All Outhouses that you need for the achievement are out in the open world and some you will need the pirate ship to gain access, since a few of them are located on islands.
|Kill Santa Claus||(2)|
For this achievement, you must reach the North Pole by completing all of the Army General's quests and although you don't need to, I'd advise you to also complete Captain Taint's quests so that you can travel using the pirate ship.
The bridge will then stop at the exit and you can safely leave the dungeon. Once you're out of the dungeon, you'll end up in the Reindeer pen. Kill all of the reindeer, including their leader Roodolph they'll drop a set of reindeer earmuffs. Make sure to equip the earmuffs in your helmet section and return back to Santa. He's yowl will not affect you this time and will cause him to roll away in terror while calling for his Coal Monster.
|A Tale of Two Endings||25|
|Watch Both Game Endings||(4)|
After you've killed all the major bosses, collected all the thongs, and researched all the thongoliths for the researcher, you'll be able to go to the Moon and finish the game. When you reach Sandy at the top of the Secret Moon Base, you'll be given two options. To give up your thong willingly, or not. When you give it up willingly, there will be no fight. You get a cutscene and the game will be over. However, the second option isn't as easy.
|DLC: The Snowy Mountain Dungeon|
|Price: $2.99 USD|
|Kill the Taking Tree|
The Taking Tree is at the very end of a long winding Mysterious Cave located in the Snowy Mountains which is in the top right of the world map. To get here, transport to the Snowy Mountain Outhouse and look at the area map. You'll see a cave directly to your right, which is the Mysterious Cave. Once you enter, you'll see a Frozen Monk which will give you the quest to kill the Taking Tree. After you fight your way to the top, you'll see the tree and notice that it's heavily defended. It's level 21, so not only powerful itself, but spawns a number of enemies continuously. Definitely make sure you have plenty of health potions here, you'll need them.
