    11/16/2011: The Guide's Birth
    
    Various dates I forgot to list: I got a good majority of the guide done, but
    it seems that I forgot to list the dates for them.  Dang, you and I would
    think that after 10 guides, I would know better.  Hopefully I won't make the
    same mistake when I create and summit future guides.
    
    11/27/2011: Got the main guide done, now I just need to do the overview and
    I'm ready to summit the guide to GameFAQs.
    
    12/20/2011: Got done with the overview finally.  Now I just need to make some
    final touches then I'm ready to summit it to GameFAQs.
    
    12/24/2011: I finally guide done and summited it to GameFAQs.
    
    01/04/2012: Found and corrected a few errors in the guide.  Nothing special
    here.

    Hey Guys, welcome to my next guide in my series of works.  As you can tell
    from my user name, my name is Gamer364.  This guide is designed to help all
    players playing this game unlock all the achievements/trophies.  Apparently,
    this game was made by the people who made Persona 3 and Persona 4 (I never
    played either game personally, but I heard they're both really good games).
    I know their's an achievement guide on this site already, but I wanted to
    include my own guide into the mix, just in case the one that's shown already
    isn't enough for you guys.  Other than that, I can't think of much to say
    about this game and I know you guy probably don't like long Intros anyway, so
    I'll get on with the guide already.
    
    Warring: This guide can and will contain spoilers.  I will do my best to not
    spoil stuff from the game, but sometimes it just can not be helped, so read at
    your own risk.

    |                    Stage 3: Achievement/Trophy Overview                    |
    ******************************************************************************
    
    Achievement difficulty (on a scale of 1 through 5, 5 being the hardest): 
    
    2.5 for 635G for Xbox and 41 Trophies for PS3 (based on personal experience)
    4.5 for full 1000G and 50 Trophies with video walkthroughs
    5 for full 1000G and 50 Trophies without video walkthroughs
    
    Number of Achievements/Trophies: 50
    
    Least amount of playthroughs to get all Achievements/Trophies:
    
    Story Mode: 1 (3 suggested)
    Babel Mode: 1
    Rapunzel Mini-Game: 2 (or 128 Stages)
    Total: 4 (7 suggested)
    
    Number of Missable Achievements/Trophies: 11
    
    Details: This game is quite hard to 100%, but I'll swear up and down that
    you'll 100% this eventually.  I read on PS3trophies.org that story mode can be
    beaten in one playthrough if you were as neutral as possible and save your
    game on Day 5 when you start deciding what endings you are going for.  Where
    on Day 5 is not exactly clear to me, because for all I know it could be
    refering to either saving on the nightmare stages (like after 5-1) or in the
    Stray Sheep after you beat the nightmare stages.  Even if I did know for sure,
    beating the game in one playthrough would basicly require you to playthrough
    the game on Hard, and I don't exactly recomend this course of action when
    selecting your difficulty at the starting gate.  Because of this, 3
    playthroughs are suggested, but like I said, you could end up beating story
    mode in 1 playthrough.  If your going to try to beat story mode in one
    playthough, I would highly suggest playing on Normal first, then switch on
    over to Hard once you decide you want to go for "The Golden Child" through the
    in-game options menu.
    
    For Babel Mode, you need to at least get a Gold Trophy on either Normal or
    Hard in order to unlock it.  Because of this, your starting difficulty should
    at least be on Normal.  As for Babel Mode itself, you have to make it up to
    the top of each of the four Babel Stairs this game has (the names of which I
    will not spoil just yet).  However, due to a bug in the last one you unlock,
    it's impossible to beat it while doing it solo (well, in the US version
    anyway).  Thankfully, Babel Mode can be played in Pairs (co-op/2 Player mode)
    and the last stage in Pairs still works just fine, so it's not glitched
    completely.
    
    And Finally we have the Rapunzel Mini-Game.  This Mini-Game can be played at
    anytime during the Golden Playhouse while running around in the Stray Sheep
    Bar.  Intially, they're 64 stages and you get 3 tries per day.  Once you beat
    Rapunzel's 64 stages (not 100% sure if you need to get the True ending for it
    or not), you'll then be given a code to access the other 64 stages (thus, 2
    Playthroughs (or 128 Stages) for this mini-game).  As for the 3 tries per day
    rule, once you have beaten the game for the first time, 3 tries turns into
    Unlimited tries (or Free Play if you will).  I'm not sure if you need to get
    the True ending for the extra 64 stages as well to get the final Rapunzel
    achievement/trophy as well.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This is the meat of this guide.  Here, I'm going to seperate the
    achievements/trophies into groups.  Here are the groups of
    achievements/trophies.
    
    1. The Golden Playhouse (Story Mode)
    2. The Game's Endings
    3. Babel Mode
    4. Rapunzel Mini-Game
    5. Miscellaneous Achievements/Trophies
    
    I will go in order of how I number them, starting with The Golden Playhouse.
    
    
    The Golden Playhouse (Story Mode)
    
    This group of achievements/tropies are for the Golden Playhouse and others
    related to it.  Unless marked with an "*", these achievements/trophies can't
    be missed, because they're part of the story.  If your having trouble with
    nightmare stages, be it on Normal or Hard, you can refer to this site for
    various video walkthroughs, just click the stage area your having trouble on.

    Description: Conquer Stage 1.
    Gamerscore: 5
    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: You get this when you beat the Underground Cemertary Stage 1-1 in the
    nightmare stages.
    
    Note: This is the only non-secret story-related achievement/trophy in the
    game.
    
    B. Push It to the Limit!*
    Description: Push 5 blocks at once. (Golden Playhouse)
    Gamerscore: 10

    Gamerscore: 10
    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: You need to make an Ice block slide at least 5 blocks before it reaches
    the edge.  You'll start seeing these in Quadrangle (Stage 5) and as far as I
    know his is the only stage you see them in (well, you do see them in stage 9,
    but I'm not going to count that stage, because it's appearence is way too
    random).  Here's a Youtube video for an easy spot to do this in.  The video
    takes place on 5-2 on Normal and was made by technole of Youtube.

    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: For this one, you need to make it so an exploding block hit 15 other
    blocks.  You start seeing these in Clock Tower (Stage 6).  This will most
    likely come naturally as you go through 6-2 if your playing on Normal, but if
    for some reason it doesn't, here's a YouTube Video below.  This video was done
    on 6-2 on Normal and was made by technole of Youtube.

    difficulties mentioned.  You can easily do this in the Underground Cemetery
    (Stage 1-1).  This can be missed if you don't at least play on Normal and/or
    you don't get a Gold Prize at all during the game, but that's not likely.

    The Game's Endings
    
    This group of achievements/trophies talk about the game's endings like the
    group name suggests.  This game has 8 different endings, but you can get them
    all in 1 playthrough of story mode if you know where and when to save.  There
    are 3 different types of endings: The Lover endings (Law), The Cheater endings
    (Chaos), and the Freedom endings (Neutral).  Each type of ending has 3
    different endings tied to them (except for the Freedom endings which has 2).
    You generally want to make choices that make your Karma meter lean more
    towards Chaos for the Cheater endings, or Law for the Lover endings.  For the
    True Freedom ending, you can't make your Karma meter lean towards Chaos nor
    Law.
    
    What type of ending you get and rather it's a Bad (Lover/Cheater endings
    only), Normal or True ending depends on the choices you make as you go
    through game and what Landing confessional choices you make in The Empireo
    nightmare stages.  There are 4 questions that determine the game's endings.
    The 1st one effects nothing, the 2nd and 3rd ones determine what the 4th
    question is, and the last one decides your ending (1 question will take you to
    another one if you don't answer "Yes" for that question though).
    
    T. Nighty Night
    Description: View the bad Lover ending.
    Gamerscore: 10
    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: This is Katherine's bad Lover path and it'll require the karma meter to
    be leaning heavily to the left which is the Chaos side.  What basicly happends
    here is that Vincent trys to convince Katherine that Catherine is not real and
    he never actually cheated on her, but she still leaves him anyway.  This
    ending can be achieved in one of two Q&A paths:
    
    A.

    Q2 (Do you wish for a peaceful life?) - Yes
    Q3 (Do you wish for the excitement of chaos?) - Yes
    Q4 (Which of these do you truly wish for?) - Peaceful days

    Gamerscore: 10
    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: This is Katherine's normal Lover path and it'll require the karma meter
    to be leaning heavily to the right which is the Law side.  What basicly
    happends here is that Vincent manages to convince Katherine that Catherine is
    not real and he never actually cheated on her with the help of his friends.
    Vincent and Katherine then go on to plan the wedding as if the game never
    happend.  This ending can be achieved in one of three Q&A paths:

    Catherine's true father, Nergal shows up and trys to put a stop to it, but
    Catherine insists on marrying him.  Catherine then transports Vincent to the

    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: This is normal freedom path where Vincent doesn't want to hook up with
    Katherine nor Catherine and the karma meter can be leaning to either the left
    or right sides.  What basicly happends here is that Vincent tells Muton that
    he doesn't want either girl and wants to remain single.  Shocked by the turn
    of events, Muton then apologizes to Vincent for making go through everything
    that happend in the game.  Vincent then borrows some money from Muton so he
    can bet on a wrestling match, but ends up losing.  This ending can only be
    achieved through this Q&A path:
    
    Q1 - Your choice
    Q2 - No
    Q3 - No
    Q4 (If "the truth" causes you to be alone, would you still search for it?) -
    Yes
    
    Note: If you say "No" to this question, you'll then be asked "Which of these
    do you truly wish for?"
    
    Y. Starting a New Life
    Description: View the true Lover ending.
    Gamerscore: 20
    Trophy Color: Sliver
    Guide: This is Katherine's true Lover path and it'll require the karma meter
    to be maxed out to the right which is the Law side.  What basicly happends
    here is the same as normal Lover ending, but this time Vincent and Katherine
    actually get married.  This ending can only be achieved through this Q&A path:
    
    Q1 - Your Choice
    Q2 - Yes
    Q3 - No
    Q4 - I'm ready
    
    Z. Lord of the Night
    Description: View the true Cheater ending.
    Gamerscore: 10
    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: This is Catherine's true Cheater path and it'll require the karma meter
    to be maxed out to the Left which is the Chaos side.  What basicly happends
    here is the same as the normal cheater ending, but this time Vincent becomes
    the King of the Underworld.  This ending can only be achieved through this Q&A
    path:
    
    Q1 - Your Choice
    Q2 - No
    Q3 - Yes
    Q4 - Yes
    
    AA. A Life Without Regrets...
    Description: View the true Freedom ending.
    Gamerscore: 10
    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: This is basicly the same path as the normal freedom one but your karma
    meter can't be either to the left nor to the right to get this ending.  What
    basicly happends here is the same as the normal Freedom ending, but Vincent
    actually wins the bet this time.  Vincent then uses the money to grab a seat
    on the tourist space shuttle and (I assume) lives the rest of his days in a
    space home.  The Q&A path for this ending is the same as the normal Freedom
    ending, but I'll put it up again anyway.
    
    Q1 - Your choice
    Q2 - No
    Q3 - No
    Q4 - Yes
    
    
    Babel Mode
    
    This mode unlocks itself when you get at least 1 gold trophy in the nightmare
    stages on either Normal or Hard.  This mode has four different levels each
    with their own achievment/trophy for beating them: Altar, Menhir, Obelisk and
    Axis Mundi.  This mode can be played by yourself, or while playing in pairs
    (2 player mode).  I would suggest trying to play the stages by yourself, but
    if your really stuggling, it's easier to play this mode in pairs due to the
    reduced number of steps you have climb (even if your playing by yourself with
    2 controlers).  This mode's block placement is randomized each time you play
    this mode, so it's really hard to come up with strategies for various levels
    of Babel.  I will include video links for various stages so you get the
    general idea of what to expect (along with the uploader of the video of
    course).  Before attempting this mode however, you'll want to play through the
    nightmare stages on Hard, so you can prepair yourself for this mode.  The
    reason for this is because you don't get to use the Undo command (Back on Xbox
    360 and Select on PS3) in this mode, and Hard mode lacks this ability to use
    it as well.
    
    Glitch Warring: While the achievement/trophy for beating this stage isn't
    glitched, Axis Mundi has a bad habbit of kicking it up to level 2 after you
    climb 1 or 2 steps.  Because of this, the stage is unbeatable at this time.
    You can still beat this stage if you do pairs, so Axis Mundi is not glitched
    completely.  This only applies to the North American version of this game (as
    far as I know anyway).

    AE. A God is Born!
    Description: Conquer the final stage of Babel.
    Gamerscore: 100
    Trophy Color: Gold
    Guide: The final stage the description refering to is Axis Mundi.  This stage
    has only the the Normal and Cracked blocks from Altar.  However, this stage
    also includes the Black Hole blocks as well.  If your doing this stage in
    pairs you need to climb 168 steps.  Doing this stage solo is not possible at
    this time due to the glitch mentioned eariler (US version only).  If the
    glitch was non-exsitent (US version only), gets a patch to correct this
    (again, US version only) or if you playing this game in a different country,
    you would've had to climb 300 steps.
    
    Note: This is the only secret achievement/trophy in this group of
    achievements/trophies.  Also, I haven't inclueded a video for this stage on
    purpose, because as mentioned before, doing this stage solo is not possible at
    this time for those playing the US version of this game.
    
    
    Rapunzel Mini-Game
    
    You can play this mini-game at any time during your playthroughs of the
    Golden Playhouse (Story Mode) while your at the Stray Sheep (the game's Hub
    World outside the nightmares) starting from Day 3.  This mini-game is basicly
    the same as the nightmare stages except for one difference:  You have a move
    limit instead of a time limit.  What I mean by it is that in the nightmare
    stages blocks will gradually fall and you will slowly have less room to work
    with.  This doesn't happend in the Rapunzel mini-game, but you only get so
    many moves like 60 or 120 (just examples, actual move limit varies).  This
    group has three achievements for them, one for beating the 1st 64 stages, one
    for using the code to do the 1st extra stage, and one more for beating all of
    the extra stages.
    
    Note: What I mean by "1st 64 stages", "using the code" and "beating all of the
    extra stages" is that there's a total of 128 stages in the Rapunzel mini-game.
    The first 64 can be played right out of the starting gate (one at a time), and
    you get a code for beating stage 64 to access the extra 64 stages.
    
    You do get 3 trys per day until your final day during your first playthrough,
    but after you beat the game for the first time, you get basicly unlimited
    tries for all save files in the game.  I think it only applies to the
    difficulty option you were playing on at the time, but the mini-game will
    remember what stage you were on when you stopped playing it, so don't worry
    about losing your save progress on the mini-game too much.
    
    I'm not 100% sure on this, but there are the Rosaires hidden in stages 52, 56,
    60 and 64, and I think you need to grab them in the mentioned stages to get
    the code for the extra 64 stages.  I also think that you need to get the
    Rosaires in the extra stages as well to get the final achievement/trophy for
    this group of achievements/trophies.  So basicly, I think you need to see the
    True ending to the Rapunzel mini-game two times, one in normal mode and one in
    extra mode.  I could be wrong though on all accounts though.
    
    If at any point you are having trouble with Rapunzel, here's a link to a
    playlist of video walkthroughs for all 128 stages.  The playlist was created
    by XCVii007r1 of Youtube.

    version of the game.
    
    AF. Past a Heap of Puzzles
    Description: Beat Stage 64 of Rapunzel.
    Gamerscore: 10
    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: You get this when you beat Stage 64 of the Rapunzel mini-game.  You'll
    get a code before it unlocks though.  I know I said this before, but I think
    you need to collect Rosaires in stages 52, 56, 60 and 64 and see the True
    ending for the normal Rapunzel mode in order to get the code and thus unlock
    this achievement/trophy though.  I got the True ending for the normal stages,
    but I'm not sure if you can get away with getting the bad ending as well.
    
    Note: This is the only non-secret achievement/trophy in this group of
    achievements/trophies.
    
    AG. Mystery Within a Puzzle
    Description: Uncover the truth behind Rapunzel.
    Gamerscore: 20
    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: You get this when you start the extra stages of Rapunzel.  You have to
    enter a code the game gives you for beating the first 64 stages of Rapunzel.
    I will tell you right now that the code goes as follows:
    
    Up, Down x2, Up x3, Down x4, Right
    
    Like I said though, you need to beat the first 64 stages in order for the code
    to work.  After you enter the code and press play, start up Extra stage 1 and
    it'll unlock after the intro sequence for extra Rapunzel mode.  Make sure you
    enter the code when the heart is on top of the word Rapunzel.
    
    AH. Legendary Prince
    Description: Hear Rapunzel's sad song.
    Gamerscore: 30
    Trophy Color: Silver
    Guide: You'll unlock this when you beat extra stage 64 of Rapunzel.  Again,
    I'm not sure if you need to collect the Rosaires in stages 52, 56, 60 and 64
    in the extra Rapunzel mode as well as the normal stages or if you can get the
    bad ending for one or both types of Rapunzel stages and still unlock this.
    
    
    Miscellaneous Achievements/Trophies
    
    This group of achievements/trophies are here because I either not sure where
    else they are suppose to go, or are not related to any of the
    achievement/trophy groups mentioned above.
    
    AI. Dreams Come True
    Description: View all of the endings.
    Gamerscore: 100

    Guide: As mentioned before, there are 8 endings in all, two of which are bad,
    and the rest being normal or true.  Like I said, this unlocks when you view
    the last of the game's endings, along with the ending achievement/trophy you
    didn't unlock at that point of time.

    100% sure on that one.

    do it.

    your dad's fault!
    
    6-1 - He doesn't seem to show up in the nightmare stages for the remainder of

    6-3 - Instead of dragging myself through Hell... Maybe it's better just to die

    comes along, it only unlocks when Day 8 ends.  In theory, you could have up to
    25 text messages in the sent box on the phone, but you would have to act all
    Law for Katherine and all Chaos for Catherine to maximize the number of texts
    you receive and sent between the two girls.  Later on during the game, the
    text messages you get from Catherine will end up disappearing for some unknown
    reason.  Don't have a panic attack, the texts you get from her will still
    count towards this achievement/trophy.

    Guide: You start drinking at the Stray Sheep at Day 2.  While hanging out
    their, you always start off with a Cocktail, so there's no need to order it
    again unless you want to.  To take a sip of your Cocktail (or any other drink
    for that matter) you have to press X on the 360 or [] on the PS3.  After
    taking 3 sips of your drink of choice, you'll learn some trivia about the
    drink you finished.  After that, Erica (the chick who serves the drinks) will
    ask you if you want another one.  Select "Yes" and you'll be given a choice of
    4 drinks.  What buttons you need to press for certain drinks are listed below.
    Once you learn some trivia about all four drinks, you'll be given the
    achievements/trophies for each drink you drank on the final day.

    Trophy Color: Platinum
    Guide: I had the Xbox 360 version of this game at the time of writing this,
    and I don't see why the people who made this decided it was a good idea to
    include a Platinum trophy style achievement if it's not going to be worth 0
    points.  Anyway, this unlocks when you got all the other 49
    achievements/trophies.  I only have 2 suggetions here:
    
    1. Refer to all the other 49 achievements/trophies because as mention before,
    it unlocks when you have all of those.
    
    2. When you unlock this achievement/trophy, give yourself a pat on the back
    and enjoy your 1000 Gamerscore (or all the trophies you work so hard to get if
    your playing the PS3 version), because you just beat Catherine.

    1. Send me a E-mail
    2. Send me a message on my Gamertag on X-Box Live
    
    My E-mail address shadowjohn91(at)yahoo(dot)com.
    My Gamertag is Gamer364.  This can be done only through a text message.
    
    E-mail or Message me if you:
    
    A. See a spelling error: I may have made spelling errors as I was writing
    this.
    
    B. Have a question that needs asking: You may have something that needs
    clearing up or something to that affect.
    
    C. Have a correction to make: I'm not 100% sure on some of the stuff mentioned
    though out the guide.
    
    D. Want to use my guide on your website: I personally have no problem
    letting you use my guide on your website, as long as you ask me first, and you
    give me credit for it.
    
    E. Think you see someone using my guide without permission: I don't like it
    when people steal my stuff (at least, not without asking me first).  I don't
    do it to other people (at least without giving other people credit for the
    idea), so why do it to me anyway?
    
    F. Have something to add-on to this or that/there's something I forgot to
    include: If there something you think I should have included, but I didn't,
    you are encouraged to send me an Email for this or that.
    
    Do note that if you do decide you want to message me, make sure if the topic
    is about Catherine.
    
    As of right now the only sites that have permission to use my guide:
    A. GameFAQs (I have an ancount with them, so they don't really need my
    permission.)
    B. Neoseeker (The owner got permission in advanced)
    C. Supercheats (The owner got permission in advanced)
    More to come (maybe).
    
    Don't even think about email me if you are going to send me:
    A. Hate Mail
    B. Spam
    C. Name Calling mail
    D. Barelly readable/Unreadable mail
    E. Mail with mostly creative words (if you get my drift)
    
    Letter A I take offence to, because I don't send hate mail to no one.
    
    I have a Spam safeguard with yahoo, and it'll tell me if I have spam or not
    with Letter B.  Also, if I think your trying sending me spam on Xbox Live,
    don't think I won't wirte a complant about you, and/or tell Microsoft on you.
    
    With letter C, I also take offence, because I get name called in school.
    
    Letter D, If your sending me an E-mail, have spell check avaiable to you and
    your not sure of your spelling, then why not use it?
    
    Letter E, Unless I messed up that badly, there's really no reason for that
    anyway.
    
    All of these things can and will make me think your a bad person, when in
    reality your probably not.  All in all, just don't do it.
    
    Follow these rules, and if you add-on and/or correct something, I'll give you
    credit for it.
    
    Note: Don't get discouraged if I don't answer you right away.  Sometimes, I
    might be on the Computer and sometimes I'll be on Xbox Live.  Your best bet
    is to send both an E-mail and an Xbox Live message.  That way if I don't get
    one of your messages, I'll still be able to get the other message.  Even
    then, I might still not get your message right away.
