    If playing this game for the second time (or even first) you can use the "A" button to speed up the text DONT HOLD "B" THOUGH!!!!!!! Then the achievement will go Ba-Ding... when you beat the game.

    ElSelchoWhew, thanks for that. Accidentally clicked A on a dialogue half way through and was considering a restart.

    Eff GXWell, it didn't unlock for me the first time. I'm sure I didn't skip a cutscene. So it must either be skipping some dialog wit Ben Franklin (You have to combine the kite and battery in open inventory, not using LB and RB to cycle through items. Otherwise you see the infinite fail dialog cycle, that's the one time I skipped the annoyance.) or pressing B on the intro in the Maniac Manson "minigame" ... So be warned, to do neither or you void the achievement for that run. :-(

    planchetflawMine uocked first play through. I didn't press B at all, including during Maniac Mansion. I also only used Y to do my inventory. Never touched the shoulder buttons.

    Link5646Just a note that this achievement doesn't pop until the flag is raised and the credits start to roll. I was worried because I got "Yesterday's News" about 2 minutes before I got this achievement.

    I pressed A in a few instances of dialogue and it did not affect my achievement. I never pressed B during dialogue, and I think that's the biggest factor in getting the achievement. Hopefully this achievement is not a buggy one.

    Eff GXI can confirm that skipping dialog doesn't void it. I skipped through almost everything on the second playthrough (pressing A on dialog). So it must have been skipping the intro in MM.
