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
