My last achievement/trophy was for beating a friends recommendation on autolog, how in any way at all is that a substitute for an unlockable in an older game. Answer - it isn't, it wouldn't have even been in an older game.

Sometimes i get the feeling that Nintendo want to be that annoying douche that only plays jap rpg imports on consoles only 6 people have heard of or specialises in beat em ups and absolutely nothing else, everyone knows a person like that in their friends circle.
