In a game where you%26rsquo;re constantly in danger of killing yourself with your own god-like weaponry (a gun that shoots black holes? Yes please!) as you exterminate thousands of massive killer bugs, it%26rsquo;s easy to understand why THQ decided to condense some of the narrative into collectible audio logs. This way, you can listen to the story while you%26rsquo;re throwing pieces of buildings at your enemies. Even so, we won%26rsquo;t judge you if you%26rsquo;re just out for the Chronicler achievement. In fact, we%26rsquo;re here to help.
Note that you can find 36 logs on your own and are automatically given 11 others. Yes, that adds up to more than the 40 required (have a cookie), so technically you can unlock the achievement/trophy even if you miss a few. Good deal.
Chapter 1: The Terraformer
Log 06 - Before you enter the terraformer, walk down the road in the opposite direction of the shield to find this log.
Log 21 - Immediately after the cutscene of your reinforcements landing, clear out the enemies in the building to your right, then run along the right side of that building (or what%26rsquo;s left of it depending on your appetite for destruction) to find this log in the corner.
Log 22 - As you make your way to the turbine room, you%26rsquo;ll have to run through this hallway, where the audio log is on the right, in plain sight.
Log 23 - On the third level of the room with the glowing core in the center of it. Can%26rsquo;t miss this one on your left.
Chapter 2: We%26rsquo;re Not Alone
Log 33 - There%26rsquo;s no need to look for this log, since it%26rsquo;s given to you as soon as the mission begins. Here%26rsquo;s a purty picture anyway.
Log 20 - In the room where you%26rsquo;re prompted to %26ldquo;Clear the Debris,%26rdquo; walk to your left and drop down from the ledge to find this log at the base of a metal structure.
Log 24 - After several minutes of spelunking and splattering, you%26rsquo;ll notice this audio log just to your right. It%26rsquo;s in your path, so you can%26rsquo;t miss it.
