I don't know if Owain is reading this thread, but I am curious how he got so many headshots. He has over 700 headshots and think the next person on my friends leaderboard has under 400!

I'm not sure I can answer that with anything other than, I shoot them in the head.  I guess I tend to shoot a bit high at first and walk it down usually,  If I don't get a headshot right off the bat.  Also if I sneak in the room and don't have a melee oppurtunity right there, then I will line a headshot up for my first shot.

I have done a playthrough on normal and a 100% playthrough on hardcore.  I am currently going through on insane or at least until I hit level 50.

I don't understand how you do that.  When my game on normal was over I watched all the credits, got my scores then my only option was to exit.  Which I did.  I was then taken back to the main menu where I could continue my last checkpoint or start a new.  So, I started a new and was treated to level 1 again.  Not wanting to start from scratch again, I got out and moved on from the game probably never to pick it up again.  I think if you could have started with the same leveled character again on another playthrough they should have stated so somewhere, somehow, etc.  Now I am screwed.  Loved the game on my normal playthrough though.  Had to switch to easy in a few frustrating parts, but hope more games like it come out.  Just shows what can be done.  I hear TrialsHD is just as good.

Yeah, that's strange. Every time I have started over it has retained my level.

Wow I just got stomped all over lost 17-3. I'd post highlights but I don't have any.  crybaby Threw 4 picks and lost a fumble. I need to practice... A lot.. It was fun though we were cracking up at all the picks on both sides.

I don't know if I would describe it as "stomped all over".  icon_lol

I happened to be gifted a 70 yard Demarcus Ware INT for a TD (which came up with no usable angles when I tried to highlight it - seriously, it would start with several seconds of extreme closeups of the crowd) and a timely fumble recovery, but it was just ugly all around. Both Romo and Manning threw 4 picks each and Manning at least managed a QB rating of 1, while Romo came up with a goose egg. A ZERO QB rating.  icon_lol

I told Octavious that since we will meet again later in the season we've got a lot of improving to do. We couldn't possibly do worse.

OK, I'm about 90% done with my hardcore run. I got past the point where I screwed up last time and I have no idea how I didn't notice the panel that I missed. I was definitely hitting myself.  retard

With all the firepower and armor upgrades, enemies offer little danger at this point, and I am fine with that. I always like it when games offer a trade-off of time spent on the game vs. difficulty.

I will probably have looked up 5 or 6 hints for getting items by the time I have finished. Oh well.

I am currently at level 34. I got to level 17 in my somewhat abbreviated normal run and will have another 18 or so on my hardcore run. So it sounds like in order to get to 50 I will have to start my next game on Insane and get pretty far.  I'll give it a shot and see what happens. I have a feeling it won't be that bad because of some of the unlockables.

Waiting for a couple of things to happen. pingwrx and fuzzyslug need to play their games, and everyone else needs to make sure they have their status set to ready before I advance the week. The deadline to finish Week 1 is this Sunday. Unless pingwrx and fuzzyslug finish their games before then, Week 2 will start Sunday night.

Do you have to do something special to be "ready"?

i've hit a weird snag trying to get up a wind tunnel.  there's a huge fan above and two vents at the top on either side you are able to get into.  i know how to get up using what i have, but the aiming is wonky when i try to get up the left side.  instead of aiming at the wall, i aim at a point just in the background so i can't ascend.  there's a grenade pack on the right side, but it's a dead end.  i found a trapdoor further past this point, but it's all red doors and dead end tunnels.  blue line is pointing up the way with the fan.   what am i missing?
Spoiler for Hiden:
There is a way to turn it off.  I can't remember how, though.  If it is where I think it is, there should be a control room where there is an object that is red when you shine a light on it.  If you blow it up, I think that turns it off, but I could be confusing that with something else.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Yeah, I think you are at the point where you get the missiles. You have to go slightly off the path and find the missiles, which is a little confusing, because up until that point the game has led you directly to the next weapon/gadget.

I'm having a  retard moment in the area just after the mine car where two guys each patrol through those four red force fields. I get under the first four and open the hatch but can't seem to get the timing or the technique to go left past the second set. A spoilered hint would be most appreciated.

Spoiler for Hiden:
wait until both guards reach the middle and turn around facing away from you. Then jump out of the hatch, move to the left and get under the ceiling hatch and jump up. You might not line it up right the first time, but you've got some time before they turn around and see you.

7064  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA]Shadow Complex on: August 25, 2009, 12:28:18 AM
OK, I found the first real tough part in my hardcore run.

Spoiler for Hiden:
On the way to get the scuba mask, you head through an atrium with staircases going 2 floors up. Lots of guys on the bottom floor and a doorway that opens up with more guys that run in. After you make it to the top, you go over the cafeteria, up, over some pipes back the way you came and then into another tall, open room with a small bridge pointed into the screen. You can surprise a guy below you, but there are plenty more, and then soldiers come pouring across the bridge, including a heavy machine gunner. Survive that and you go up a level and get pelted from deep in the room by soldiers and another machine gunner. If you make it, you can crawl above into a save room.

It probably took me about 5 tries to make it through, and I just made it because I forgot about the second machine gunner. I was below 50 health and I could feel the controller vibrating from shots as I ducked behind a railing for him to reload.

After you make it through, beat the boss and get the scuba, you then of course get to play through that incredibly cool section where debris and bodies float about while some creepy piano plays.
7065  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bad Company 2 Trailer on: August 24, 2009, 09:41:16 PM
Some interesting notes from the preview:

http://ps3.ign.com/articles/101/1015902p1.html

Quote
Squad elements have been substantially improved since the original Bad Company. Players can now spawn next to their four-person teams and use special push-to-speak controls to send commands to specific members of the fire team. There were also be unique achievements and rewards for team play. Best of all, the game has done away with the global spotting system, so now you'll have to spot each enemy individually and even get close enough to see whether or not they're a friendly or an enemy. The final two of the game's four total modes will also rely heavily on squads but DICE didn't reveal more details.

Quote
Kit customization is another integral part of the experience. With four classes -- assault, recon, engineer and medic --, more than 40 weapons (including three classics for 1943 owners), 200 weapon customization options, 15 gadgets, and your choice of two of 13 different specializations, players can really equip themselves according to their own needs and not the expectations of the designers. So if you want to be a medic with an M1 Garand, a defibrillator, a stamina boost and a few extra clips, you can do it. Or you might be an engineer with mortar strikes and improved armor. Or a recon soldier with motion sensors and red dot scopes.

Supposedly there's also a killcam now.

7068  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 Slim: Real or Prank? on: August 24, 2009, 09:06:53 PM
That survey seems a little sketchy. I don't doubt the failure rate is high, but if 1 out every 2 360's was dying I think MS would have had to do a lot more than just extend people's warranties. I also find it interesting that in a lot of cases individuals have multiple bad boxes, implying that environment may have something to do with it.  Something else I'd be interested to know is how long after purchase does the average red ring happen - if there is a date after which you will likely not get one if you haven't already gotten one.

i am not sure about Lock on,never used it if its available...i have just been directing the analogue stick where i wanna shoot...is that an upgrade?

From what I've seen, your 'accuracy' does improve as you level up but I don't think there's an upgrade. It's just that if you pull the trigger and don't override the targetting with the right stick (let it go) he'll do a pretty good job of automatically locking on enemies.

Ah cool, didn't know he would automatically aim at all.  I have a lot of trouble with rooms where there are a lot of guys in the background.  I find if any of them are on the move, it's pretty much impossible to hit them until they sit still.

I'm playing on hardcore and you can definitely drop all your health in an instant.  Chaingun guys are deadly.

Yup, definitely using a lot of cover and exploiting every sneaky attack point on my hardcore run. I'm sure it would be a lot harder starting from level 0.

Ooh, some fun things I liked to do when I got the new gadgets:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Use the hook to snatch away riot shields from the big guys, which dazed them, and then headshot them. Also, a foam/grenade combo worked great in a lot of cases. Grenade sticks right to the foam, then BOOM! smile

The online site definitely gets a bit glitchy. I've never seen the score line up right on the scoring summary (it will say the score was 7-7 after a first quarter field goal, for example) and I've also seen the individual stats have the teams reversed (Dallas players under Tampa icon). It has potential, though smile

like the Gizmodo article says:

On the other hand, 8bitjoystick has their own opinion on the matter, saying that there's no way Microsoft will do a redesigned 360 this generation. The reason that makes the most sense to us is their current accessory design. The face plates to the external hard drives to the wireless adapters are all made for the current 360, and it doesn't make sense to have accessories that don't match the new design. Plus, it's unlikely Microsoft would put out all new accessories for the new box either.

I don't think there's a way they could slim it down with the need for a spot to connect the HD.

Spoiler for Hiden:



i found this one quite enjoyable to fight against,same with the one right at the end as well(which was even easier actually)...just use the foam on its legs then use whichever weapon you wish while he was stuck,and then repeat

however...when i first came up against it,the hint told me to use the hook on its shields on its back,i tried for ages to use my hook on the thing,but nothing was grabbing anywhere..so after dying a few times looking for my hook to grab onto it somewhere...i resorted to the above technique

There is an easier way to kill this guy.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Use the foam like you said to stop him, but then get behind him and hit him where that glowy thing is on the back of him with the hook shot.  You will raise up and you will be prompted to hit B to pull out some wires.  Do this 3 times and his shields go down and you can easily take him down with even machine guns.

Spoiler for Hiden:
The hint on the screen made this so obvious, but no matter how hard I tried I could not latch on the right way. So frustrating. I wound up running through his legs, shooting off some missiles, jumping to avoid the foam grenades, running through his legs, rinse, repeat. Went down fairly quickly like that, but I would have liked to do it the "right" way.

I decided to start over on Hardcore as I am kind of interested in leveling up to 50 (don't know if I will, but I'm not burned out on the game yet). At my starting level of 17 the game feels similar to starting from 0 on normal, although a bit more challenging at times.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Getting to level 20 reveals the entire map and the locations of all items (just locations, not what they are), so that might be of interest to people.
