    So.

    Is Catherine's final puzzle stuff that hard or can it be completed given enough time?
    This space for rent.

    OT: I hope the holiday sales start soon. There's some stuff I want to see on sale, like the AC III story DLC (yeah I know, I didn't get it yet) or that last piece of ME3 DLC I'm missing now.
    I too am hoping for ACIII DLC in the holiday sales. Or, better yet, the season pass.

    Mèh, I never got an AC season pass and I don't plan to. I just get the story DLC and move on smile But just a huge AC DLC/pass sale would be nice for everyone who still has parts missing... AC II story DLC doesn't have achievements but I can recommend them.
    There's no accounting for taste, it'd be best if everyone just respected that.

    I'd say there's maybe three parts that can be considered hard, and two of them depend entirely on the player. Short version, it's doable given enough time, you just need very good working knowledge of the different techniques. Practice makes perfect and all that.

    Rapunzel is the easiest of the hard achievements, just time-consuming. The rules are a bit different, as it isn't timed, but you have a finite amount of moves. Youtube playlist of all stages will get you the achievement easily.

    I'd argue this is the hardest one. Hard is legitimately difficult, there's no more undo button, and your streak needs to be preserved through the entire stage in order to get the gold. With this as my last achievement and coming fresh off the heels of another difficult achievement, it took a continuous six hours of trial and error just to beat the last two stages of the game with a perfect streak. A guide will help give you a good path up, but if you aren't following that guide within a tenth of a second, a boss or enemy could move out of expected position just enough to ruin the climb. You still need to know what you're doing, even with everything planned out, because those events will happen.

    You must know the game inside and out. Babel is randomized. A guide will only give you a semblance of a path up and what techniques to prioritize, because those videos will naturally only show the good runs. Furthermore, there's a glitch in all but the Japanese versions that leave Axis Mundi unbeatable if playing solo; you must play local co-op to beat it. Surprisingly, that opens the door to more strategies, which is why I think it's not as hard as Hard golds.
