Don't use that description space to explain what to do. Anyhow, I'm happy with just having achievements to gun for regardless, just lil petevees lol. Thanx for the heads up tho

My main point was.. is there anything I should know about now lol? Cus this all seems pretty straight forward except for the golden age one, plus I don't see any missables either.
