    Thoughout the game there are specks of dust you can collect. There is an achievement for picking up; 25, 50, and 75. The specks are dust are found throughout the game in various places on the ground.

    One quick way to get all 3 achievements (which I did) is to save your game - pick one up, load your game before you picked one up, pick up the speck of dust again - reload save game.

    Rinse and repeat 75 times. Takes 10-15 minutes for all 3 achievements. (Load a save game is quick in the game)

    The first speck of dust (that I saw) can be found on the Highway to town. The one I used was on Main Street in town.

    You can use the achievement tracker, to see how many specks you have collected.

    If you do it this way, and then after unlocking the last one - load your save game before you collected your first speck of dust and then when you beat the game you can get the achievement for "Messy World" which is not collecting any specks of dust in one play through,

    Obviously this is for picking up 75 pieces of dust, on top of the other dust achievements. However, there are achievements for not picking up any dust:

    You should be able to get all of these at the same time, and also save you the trouble of FINDING 75 specks of dust.

    First, when you find a speck of dust on the ground, save your game in a new slot. Then pick up the dust. Make sure the achievement tracker ticks up when you pick it up.

    Now reload the save. Voila! The dust has miraculously reappeared! Pick it up. Make sure the achievement tracker ticks up when you pick it up.

    Now reload the save... the kicker is that if, once you pop the third achievement, you reload the save one more time, you'll have picked up no dust.

    I suggest using the controller to do this, much faster than the on-screen load button. Put the cursor on the speck, then cn_X cn_X cn_start cn_down (your save) cn_A... This should take 5-10 minutes for all 75 specks.

    Now that you're clean (wink), continue with the game and Messy World should pop at the end of the game. (I'm still testing... but the game requires two plays anyway in case it doesn't work.)
