Might be a problem when using Retroarch, but everytime I start this game it gives me a bunch of achievements for free, really annoying.

Remember to use the USA version of the game. Some achievements, like the ending, don't work in the [E] version!

These timed achievements are a real shit. Not necessary since there is already a speed run leaderboard for people who enjoy making them, disliked

Hi Evereyone....I asked meleu to link the hash 8a9749fbc0b0b3c41599096bcd01d77d to this game. It's a MSU1 patch for better sound effects.
