Notes[edit]

  • The description of the Honorary Crew Member achievement makes it seem that you need to defend the SS Pinkeens against both the White Mantle and the Skritt. However you only need to succeed against one of the two groups.
Under Siege: The completion description references "Siege of Lake Doric" rather than the Eyes on Lake Doric mission.

Trivia[edit]

  • The achievement name "It's a Trap" is the well-known single line by the Star Wars series' Admiral Akbar, which later became an internet meme. The flavor text also references another line spoken by the same character.
  • The achievement name "Riddle Me This" is in reference to the same introductory phrase of the Riddler villain in the Batman series.
    • The flavor text on "Riddle Me This" is in reference to a well known line from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, where the third question before being allowed to pass was "What is your favorite color?", which was still somehow answered incorrectly by one of the characters.
  • The achievement name "Gems of the Beach City", as well as its description, are direct references to the setting and characters of the cartoon Steven Universe.
  • The achievement name "Not All Who Wander Are Lost" may be referencing a poem by J.R.R. Tolkien called All that is gold does not glitter.
  • The flavor text on "Those Giant Hands" references the line spoken by Logan Thackeray during Defending Shaemoor right after defeating the earth elemental in that instance
  • The achievement name "It's a Sabotage" and its description are references to the Beastie Boys song Sabotage.
  • The flavor text on "A Fly in the Ointment" references a spoken line by John McClane in the movie Die Hard.
  • The flavor text on "Courtly Discourtesy" is a play on a line from Dr. Strangelove (Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!)
