    I am currently trying to get the Historian Achievement (the one where you have to collect all the audio diaries in the game), and it's a doozy. Do you think that Jack/KnucklesDawson/Geoff should do an achievement guide for this helluva achievement?

    BTW, how many audio diaries are there?

    Eh, I don't think so. They have guides and stuff on other cheat websites that list them all.

    xbox360achievements.org have a full list along with mapped locations for the audio diaries. In one of the in-game menus it has a list of the diaries you already have so all you have to do it match up the ones you don't have and go back to nab them.

    Should point out that when you make your way back to the bathysphere, you choose your location with the D-pad, NOT the analogue stick. For a while it had me thinking I couldn't go back...

    Personally I went through the whole game again on easy and got all the diaries, tonics, weapon stations and anything else I didn't have in one go. Takes longer but it was an excuse to play through again.

    Since it's so many, it should probably be a two or three part affair, like the Dead Space thing with the logs or whatever, can't remember what they were. Or you break it down by level, maybe even two per level since they're so big. I would really like to see this one though.

    That would be Bioshock Sir. But that historian achievement is no walk in the park. If you do plan on getting the said achievement you HAVE TO GET 2 TAPES before you see the very 1st little sister (you can kill her or anything). If you don't get those then you got to start all over again! To let you know you got them here is where they are and whom they are by.

    -Hole In The Bathroom Wall - Steve Barker - Kashmir Restaurant bathroom
    -New Year's Eve Alone - Diane McClintock - Kashmir Restaurant dance floor

    As well here is a TEXT guide on where they are all at. There are 122 in total to get!
