Realistically, you cannot follow a video guide or individual item type list for your "collectibles" run through this game. There's just too many things to watch for. You'll need to follow a sequential guide, and it will most likely ruin the experience, but it sucks to miss one of these bad boys and not know which chapter it's in. The ones you miss WILL show on another run-through, though.

Tyger7 has a great walkthrough available in a zipped doc here:
I recommend using Dropbox or email to send this doc to your iPad/mobile device, so you can play in the dark!

There are 91 pages in normal/hard mode. Do yourself a favor and follow a guide.
Gumbeaux JrDo you have to get all of the normal manuscript pages before starting your new nightmare playthrough? Or can you pick up all of the items you missed (coffee thermos', etc.) in nightmare mode as well?

Manuscript pages, even the ones you collected, will show on all play-throughs (though more are added on nightmare mode) whether you collect them or not (same with supply chests). Thermos bottles will show in all modes until you collect each once and hit a checkpoint. After each is saved, you'll never see each in its respective location again.

ChernobylCowI refuse to do this achievement. Game designers need to figure out that for collectibles we need chapter %s and some sort of compass or guide to help us find them without resorting to staring at a sequence guide. Good tip about transferring the document to your cellphone, however.

HolyMollsterHere's a link to an achievement hunter video for chapter 1 for ALL collectibles in the game. Worth a look if you like your points like me.

Govo12The list is the best method I have found, but all collectables show up again. I re-started a check point and ended up collecting them all again, even though they didn't count (as they were already included in my states page).

Webby648If you fail to collect all manuscript pages during 'normal' game mode, do you then need to re-play 'normal' game mode in order to get this achievement?
Can you get this achievement by collecting all manuscripts during the 'nightmare' mode play through if you miss some the first time around?

Yes. ("The ones you miss WILL show on another run-through, though.")
