Terminal and Time Capsule (Audio Log) Locations
This guide should give you an idea where to find all the Terminals and Audio Logs.
I have listed all of the Time Capsules (or Audio Logs) under one section. Most of them should be pretty easy to find, with a few exceptions which are hidden.
As for the Terminals, I have listed them grouped by location. The sections World A/B/C refer to Terminals located within individual levels, while the Other Terminals section refers to Terminals located in the main hub level.
For each Terminal I have listed the text entries as they appear in the ingame Text Log interface, along with the Location. (Most Terminals are right next to the level spawn points so you shouldn't have any trouble finding most of them.)
Please let me know in the comments if I have entered the wrong text entries for a Terminal or forgotten something.
