Here are all of the Log Locations for Dead Space 2 in the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC survival-horror game.
There are 3 types of logs you will come across, audio clips, text messages and video messages. You can collect these on any difficulty, you may want to collect these on a Casual Difficulty playthrough but it is totally up to you. A lot of these logs you will find just by following the main path throughout the game, others though will require you to go slightly off the path for a moment.
You can find out how many logs you have collected by pressing the back (inventory) button and going to the database.
If you happen to die while collecting these Logs, you will need to collect the ones you found since your last game save.
Why does this Log Guide below not show more than 100 Log Locations?
You will automatically collect story logs which are the same as what you will be collecting, audio and video messages, as you playthrough the game. These will automatically be added to your count towards 100 Logs as you progress through the game. The rest however will need to be obtain and that is what this guide is for–those you do not automatically obtain by simply playing.
If you follow this guide from the beginning, you will unlock this achievement or trophy in Chapter 10 after fixing the Centrifuge. If you missed a few, you there are still more to be found in the upcoming chapters as well as automatically collected from the storyline.
How do I access Conduit Rooms?
In order to gain access to Conduit Rooms you must have played the Dead Space Ignition Game which you can find for purchase in either Xbox Live Arcade or the PlayStation Network. You do not have to beat the easy and short arcade game however you must at least have a game save. Once you have a game save, Conduit Rooms will automatically be unlocked, even if you have already started to progress through the game. In otherwords, you do not need to start a new game in order to gain access to them.
What achievements or trophies will I be awarded?

If you are playing on the PlayStation 3 version, there is only a Bronze Trophy to be awarded to you by collecting 100 Logs.
