There are considered to be only three locations in which Virgil is easy to miss. Other than those three locations, he's almost always directly in between you and wherever it is you're currently headed. For those of you who don't know, Virgil is the ghost with the blue aura, whom you talk to with the RB. It's been reported that you do NOT need to talk to Virgil until he disappears. Though he does have interesting information.

These three locations are:

Limbo:
Shortly after seeing Charon's head implanted in the wall(You can push it into the abyss for an achievement) you'll come to a room with a short ramp, and a throne-like thing halfway up that ramp. You'll be required to come to this room so you can pull a lever and be able to reach the first boss, King Minos. At the bottom of the ramp, near the entrance to this room is Virgil. When you originally enter, your camera will not reveal him, which is why many people(Including myself) miss this one.

Lust:
Towards the very beginning of Lust, before you enter the Lust Tower, there is a bridge with orbs of electricity shooting across it. In order to open a hole into the Lust Tower, you must pull a lever in order to redirect an electric orb back at the tower. Virgil is towards the end of the bridge, and off to the left. The reason many people miss this one is because you have a limited number of time before the portal to the Lust Tower closes. So while rushing to get in, they tend not to notice Virgil standing off to the left. At least, that's what happened to me.

Icy Bridge:
Some people are reporting that they're missing the Virgil which is located on the icy bridge towards the end of the game. I honestly don't remember much about this location (And I don't own the game anymore), so just keep your eyes open once you get to the icy area. Since Virgil is blue, and the icy background is blue, it makes sense that it'd be easy to miss. If you remember what this place is called, please leave a comment. I'd owe ya one!

DRUNKZ 27 had a helpful tip to add: You should press Start to check the in game collectibles each time you talk to Virgil. This is because the entries unlock in order. So if you check the in game list and see a previous entry still says "locked" you know that you missed one and you can revert back to an older save file to avoid a 2nd full play-through.

Also use all 16 save slots so you have multiple files to go back to in case you found you missed one.

Thanks, DRUNKZ!

If you miss even a single Virgil commentary, you'll have to start the game all over. Or, at least, load a save game prior to that Virgil.

I hope this helps!
