    Had to play through it twice, but I managed to beat it with 100%! This on a game I got for free, from the Talk Radar podcast? Thanks, Brett & Joe!

    I really want to play this game
  • purpleshirt - August 29, 2009 12:08 a.m.

    The game already tells where all the stuff is, but I guess it could be helpful for a couple of the tricky ones... still though, I don't think its entirely necessary

    Does anybody know the name of the armor/helmet that is shown in the main picture for this article (the picture next to the article name on the features page)?

    Yay! I'm so glad SC is getting the attention it deserves, I would definitely use this guide if I hadn't already beaten the game twice and gotten all achievements haha
  • garnsr - August 29, 2009 12:06 a.m.

    The only thing I had a hard time finding was a passkey that you had to jump over the rack, into the water, and swim right. The map said I already had something in that room, I don't know if it was wrong or not.
  • Dexsus - August 28, 2009 11:02 p.m.

    Well done, If not a bit late. I've already gotten everything in SC. This'll be extremely useful for new comers though.
