Well hello again!
That tip (well, you basically gave all the info
) really did the trick, and I reached the bonus level I was missing. And damn, that was a sadistic thing to do, I had a very troubled time achieving the gold medal!!! Mainly because of the "do not get hurt" requisite... man, we're supposed to kill about 50 grays
Just kidding around, it gave me an even bigger sense of accomplishment.
Finally I found my way to the Shingen (sp?) Facility, on my 3rd playthrough. I've done a lot and explored a lot in this superb game, but I have a feeling I didn't get a few things... for instance... how do you kill the rock monsters on abandoned mines, just to make the encyclopedia entry? I mean, you only get bullets and pickaxes on the overworld, and neither of them annihilates those monsters, right? And secondly... and probably I'm most intrigued by this one... where's the door opened by the "beaker" combination paper???
EDIT: Sorry, I decided to edit this post, and add a few more questions. I just can't help it!!
3 - Mary (or it might've been Darrell, I'm not sure about this) mentions some kind of weapon in the cutscene that plays when you enter the 1st time on the secret overworld area behind the ankh door. Besides the lightning combination paper, those extra levels and a few new encyclopedia entries as a result of murdering new enemies, I didn't find anything else in that area. Was there anything else to be found? I noticed I miss an encyclopedia entry on weapons right below the rifle entry, is it related to this?
4 - I've never figured out a way to destroy those green poisoned mushrooms and create a new encyclopedia entry, could you please clarify if this is possible?
Ok, this is it for now, thanks for reading!
