Entire in-game movies

About three hours into the game, after you pass the cold storage part, you will end up in a hallway with a lot of doors you can open. The middle door will have some computers and an enemy that never heard the gunfight because he is watching a television with some headphones. Kill him and the television will be yours to use. The option to change the channel will be given to you. Change the channel and some music videos and cartoons will pass. Wait a few seconds to see what is coming on next. There will be one with some cheesy music and words, and white lines coming out. This is actually a movie from 1955 called The Man With The Golden Arm starring Frank Sinatra. You can watch the entire movie on this television.

When you are in Jenny's apartment, sit down with her and the film To Kill A Mockingbird will start. It is possible to watch the entire film.

Jenny in Chapter 4

When you are about to give up the Darkness guns and extract the Darkness, look at the Demon in the middle. Look behind him in the bright light and you should see Jenny.

Keeping the zombie soldiers dead

When you are in the "Otherworld" (you will go there after you die the first and second time), the Germans soldiers almost always get back up after you kill them. The only way to make sure they remain dead is to devour their hearts.

The following is an easy way to keep the zombies dead when you die. Kill them with the demon arm, and throw them off the ledge. Note: This only works outside. If you throw them off the ledge inside a building, they will not die. Instead, they will follow you up to the level you are on. You can also devour their hearts to keep them dead.

Defeating the Darkness in the castle

To defeat the Darkness in the castle (after you have blown open the gate), go up to every chair you see in the main room. Each chair will prompt you to activate it. Note: This does give away your Darkness powers for the time being. After the Darkness appears as a red/evil Jackie, put any guns away so that just your hands are out. This will stop his attacks. Then, walk up to him without any guns out, and a prompt should appear to "Accept Him". The fight will then be over.

Easy Bringing People Together achievement

Go to the last level at Paulie's mansion. Once you get to the point where you are inside the mansion, use your Black Holes repeatedly and hide in the darkness to regain your energy. You should get the achievement easily.

Easy Ghandi achievement

When you get to Dutch Oven Harry's place, talk to Roach. Do not shoot at him until he starts shooting.

Easy Romantic achievement

Simply wait until you kiss Jenny during the movie, then look over at her to get the "Get up and leave" option. You do not have to watch the entire movie.
