For this Achievement you have to collect all 17 Battle Journals, all 16 Voice Mail Recordings and all 34 Notes. The 100 Zombie Statues and 30 Flags are not required for the Achievement. You can check in the Inventory Tab (push X here) which Collectible you have collected and which not. Battle Journals and Notes are located on Slums and Old Town, Voice Mail Recordings only in Old Town.

The best Time to collect the 67 Collectibles is after the Story. Choose Continue in the Mainmenu and you go back to Harran in Free Roam Mode and can all do what you want. Another good Hint is, reach Rank 12 in Survivor Tree for the Grappling Hook. This Tool makes the climbing so much easier in the Game.

A Word to the Sidequest, Sidequests unlocks Locations and on this Locations are many Collectibes. For the Battle Journals you have to play 0 Sidequests, for the Voice Mail Recordings you have to play 2 Sidequests and for the Notes are tons of Sidequest to play, so the best Way is, beat the Game, play all Sidequest and then begin to collect the (missing) Collectibles.

Note from Prattalmighty in the Comments:
You may want to also add in a part for the people who were stuck like me with 67/67 collectibles found, but less than 100% showing in the tracker. They can start a "New Game" save file and start picking up notes and battle journals, they'll see their completion percentage rise and the achievement will unlock after a few, work for me today.

I hate watching videos, so I found some VERY good links with a map and detailed location instructions.....

Note: I used this myself to find the rest I was missing post game, and I thought this was a great piece of info to share!!

The great thing about this game is that it shows you EXACTLY what you have and what you are missing!! Press cn_back, go to INVENTORY, then press cn_X for all your collectable files....

Marvin Zucker's Battle Journals: The Slums

Marvin Zucker's Battle Journals: Old Town

Audio logs: All in Old Town

Lost Notes: The Slums

Lost Notes: Old Town

Update/Edit: Old town's note map is kinda confusing because it using letters next to some numbered notes. That is because those places are the places you would visit while finishing that particular note's side quest. Assuming you finished all side quests, you would only need to find on the map, numbers 27c, 29b, 33c, and 34b.........

Notes 27(C) and 28 MAY require you to have started Shadow of the King...(Assuming you are on this quest currently and got all the key cards.)....You only really need a key card for room 101.

Update: I already beat the game and finished all side quests, and I still had to get the staff key card. As soon as you enter the building, you will want to head to your right where the stairs are and get the Staff Room key again. As soon as you enter the Staff Room, room 101's key is the first card on the floor in front of you. You won't need the key for room 107, the room door is wide open.

27(C): Go up the starts, turn right and enter the last room on your left, room 107. It on the right hand side on a desk next to a phone.

28: From 27(C), go back into the hallway, go right and head all the way to the other side, and use the key card to enter room 101. Enter the bedroom on the right and note #28 is on the dresser.

29(B): I got this while I was in the Chasing Past quest. Its on the right hand side of the door itself before you even walk into apartment 3.

30, 31, 32: On the roof of a kinda "L" shaped building, directly NE of the southernmost safehouse. In a fenced in area with lawn chairs, you will find Note #30 next to a metal hatch. Turn around, and you will see a set of lights on a yellow tripod. Note #31 in on the ground next to it, in front of a planter with 3 plants. Go back to where you found note #30, and look right. Note 32 is on that lower level of the roof to the right of another metal hatch.

33(C): (You MAY have to have finished (or even start) Health Potion to get this note) In the pharmacy on the counter in a back room to the right of a computer...I believe its the same pharmacy from "Health Potion"
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

34(B): (You MAY have to have finished (or even start) Fan Boy to get this note) Its not where it says it is in the guide (There is a Zombie Statue there though).....Take the elevator up, move to the right ride of the room, go straight ahead (you can break the glass wall) and enter the door with a blue number 2 next to it............Right when you walk in the door, you will see a red chair ahead of you, note #34 is right behind it on a speaker.........

I hope this helps you as much as it's helped me..........Happy Hunting!!!!
