Challenge Accepted?
Okay, I passed the 19 hour mark now, and only have two achievements left:
- Digits of Destruction (Complete a Hard level without taking damage in Typing of the Dead), which I thought would be unlocked but instead I only got the other two (Untouchable, & Mad Motor Fingers)
- Challenge Accepted (Complete all challenges in all Director's Cut levels in House of the Dead)
The latter seems rather difficult and like unnecessary, very boring grinding. But that might be because I'm not good at shooters, especially rail shooters. Did any of you have the patience to beat it? I'd like to finish them, but I'm not too sure that I will.

P.S.
Nobody I know has played the game for longer than 11 hours, & they got the no-damage achievements within that time span, having taken so long to get two of these makes me feel rather stupid now.

what is it with amount of hours spent? like it can determine who is good or bad? nothing prevents me from minimizing the game and go do something else while the steam clock is ticking. absolutely irrelevant. and i don't feel stupid about the fact i suck at typing.

as for that stupid challenge achievement - you have to be REALLY patient and start over and over to memorize all the moments where you can lose combo and fix that in the next run.
don't even bother with it until you finished all Director's cut levels and unlock infinite ammo pistol Gwendolyn - reloads will not be a problem anymore.
as for accuracy - it played well for me while using fully upgraded autoshotgun.
but all challenges are almost nothing compared to the ultimate high score challenge, which will make you hate this game. you basically have to reach goregasm combo and try not to lose it almost untill the boss.
so i decided not to get this achievement, may be in my next life. :)

I have the Gwendolyn gun now, but I still prefer the golden Magnum. Someone here in the forum said something about dual wielding guns? Is that a secret to unlock?

I read through the guide here that said that you need to have one long combo, & collect all items, & not die the entire time in every level to get that achievement. that does seem very excessive. I don't think that the game is that interesting that I want to hear the comments of the characters over & over again, & watch how they do this "Hammer Time" thing countless numbers of times. That routine got a bit tired the third time around, & I already played several levels a few times to get money for the upgrades & also to get achievements in the typing campaign. Sorry.
