I had a weird problem last night. I was riding shotgun with Dickens in his wagon and we were assaulted by waves of bad guys on horses and also wagons. On one wagon I killed the driver and shotgun and as I did so their wagon slewed across our path and our horses t-boned the enemy wagon. And stopped icon_eek.

Our horses pawed the ground, it's horses pawed the ground, and slowly our wagon pushed the enemy wagon sideways, but we were at the exact middle of the enemy wagon and so it wasn't tipping out of the way one direction or the other. And every few seconds an enemy rode up who had to be killed. I got frantic, hopped off and tried to climb into the enemy wagon, but no luck. I even tried to push the damn thing, but that didn't work either. This went out for two or three minutes. Finally I shot the two enemy horses and the enemy wagon slowly started to tilt out of the way.

Oddly enough, Dickens was totally nonplussed about the whole episode. Nothing rattles that man!  icon_biggrin

I've had that happen once at my first duel but so far not again. Weird.

You can also save at will using horse deeds since it autosaves when you summon a store-bought horse, and you can reuse deeds as often as you like.

In other news, if you're working toward the Deadly Assassin outfit be sure to do plenty of bounty missions early on. Apparently it's possible to outlevel a necessary step in the to-do list and not have a required bounty target appear anymore.   retard

Thanks for the info on the horse deed, good stuff. I wonder, did Rockstar intend that, or was it an unintended benefit?

And darn, I think went pass the required bounty mission.

I can't decide if it is a testament to how great the game is or how low our standards are as gamers that a game with this many huge bugs is praised so much. 

I'd say the former. If this was not a great game the bugs would be a death knell to sales. I've had only one lockup in eleven hours of gameplay (cross fingers) and no real glitches I've noticed.

I was emailing a friend who is familiar with the GTA games and he asked me "what kind of things can you do in the game" and I realized I had written paragraph after paragraph. There really is a lot to do, and that's all been in single player.

Still loving this game, but the controls sure are awkward at times. Especially when trying to lasso from a horse. You have to hold down A to maintain your gallop, aim with LT, press RT to throw the lasso (still holding down A), then while still holding down RT, let go of A and press and hold RB to slow your horse down. Then Y to dismount, walk over (still holding RT so you don't lose your prey) and hit Y again to hogtie. Took me half an hour to do the lasso missions on the ranch. I'm getting the hang of it, but it was almost controller-throwing frustrating for a few minutes.

For playing anything semi-current, you won't run into any issues at all as far as gaming goes. I've been running Vista 64 and now Windows 7 64 on my gaming rig and haven't had a problem.

Just picked up the first DLC, the Just Cause 2: Black Market Aerial Pack.

Quote
Content: Black Market Aerial Pack
Price: 160 Microsoft Points
Availability: All Xbox LIVE regions except Japan
Dash Text: With the Black Market Aerial Pack you get these cool items: - F-33 DragonFly Jet Fighter: With quad-mounted miniguns and double missile launchers, this agile bird is the definite ruler of the skies, and packs a serious punch to land based targets as well. - Dual Parachute Thrusters: Take to the air for longer! The Dual Parachute Thrusters when mounted to the parachute rig provides bursts of forward momentum to extend airtime. - Multi-lock Missile Launcher: This highly sophisticated weapon of destruction allows you to lock up to four targets and unleash a barrage of homing missiles to take care of all your troubles. There are no refunds for this item. For more information, see www.xbox.com/live/accounts.

160 points gets you a fancy multi-shot rocket launcher which apparently I don't know how to use properly icon_frown. And no reloads, you have to spend $50K each time you need it, so you'll not be calling for it very often.

There's a very fast jet fighter, lots of $$$, I suck at flying, so I probably will not be buying it in-game very often.

However the one really good item that make it all worthwhile is the Dual Parachute Thrusters. They don't provide continuous thrust, instead you can run them for several seconds then they need to cool for several seconds. The balance is excellent however since if you are judicious in your flying you can maintain your current altitude indefinitely or even climb, abet slowly. And it seems you only have to purchase it in-game once, it's always available after that.

UPDATE: Not, you do have the buy the Thrusters again if you die. Bummer, but understandable.

For me $10 would have been the right price.  I never had any issues getting into games without the maps this weekend playing FFA.  So I will probably never buy them.

I don't see this as an issue. Five maps are worth it to me. Sure, two are from MW1, but they are among my favorites. Nevertheless, it's the market that will eventually drive the price for future map packs. If the $15 price point is perceived by Microsoft as inhibiting sales, we could expect the next pack to be either cheaper or offer some premium as an extra enticement.

At 28% complete I finished the final Agency mission, which was a doozy. I have been playing for just under twenty hours. After the credits (which you can skip) you switch to Mercenary Mode. Nothing in the game regarding Faction missions or anything else appears to have changed or lost. I'll keep working on it towards 100% completion of all activities.

Seriously insane final mission, btw  nod

I'm driving around on the big divided highway and I'm finding health power-ups at almost every underpass. Trouble is, each time now when I get to five I don't see any increase in my max health. Does that mean I'm topped out and might as well stop collecting them? Seems a shame.
1596  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just Cause 2 on: March 25, 2010, 10:48:44 AM
I'm going to have to change my posted opinion on the missions. They aren't as simplistic as I first thought, certainly not the agency ones. I did the first non-opening sequence agency mission and it took a good twenty or thirty minutes with three segments and objectives. The faction missions haven't been too bad either.

One faction mission had me go hunt down a limo carrying a bad guy so I could hijack him and bring him to the local faction HQ. Well, first time I tried this I arrived at the roadside a bit too late to lasso his limo, so I grabbed the first vehicle that came by. Oops, a slow truck  Roll Eyes. However, as I followed the limo's path I found that the road had turned into a series of descending switchbacks in some rocky/jungle terrain. To catch up, I just drove straight down the hill side  eek, plowing through trees, over boulders, insane stuff. I didn't catch up in time  icon_frown. On the next try I did get to the limo right away and hijacked it. When my captive started to complain, Rico said "If you don't shut up I will cut off your hands and bitch slap you with them". Something you might use to keep the kids quiet in the carpool icon_biggrin. Then a good five minutes of wild limo versus police pursuit ensued, also great stuff.

I've put in about ten hours on the game, but that includes playing three hours and then restarting. In my current seven hour campaign I feel like I've barely scratched the surface of the game, and my progress rating shows only 4%.

Kudos to the designers for the great terrain design. There is a vast amount of variation throughout Panau, from city to desert to flat jungle to rocky jungle; the latter really is amazing to see as you move through on foot. I did see mentioned in a review something to the effect of how so much of the map is empty, but really that's not a fair way to describe it, it's just that there's some separation between settlements. And it isn't always empty, there's the occasional building, temple, gas station, hut, whatever. There are very small villages of just a few huts, tiny towns, bigger towns, and a couple (at least) big cities. Airports, docks, power stations, military bases, research facilities, etc. Nicely done.

And so far I've done another half dozen faction missions and no other timed missions, so maybe they are in the small minority.

I haven't come across any bugs as of yet, no unreachable goodie boxes, places where my character gets stuck and can't move, or clipping issues. Occasionally there are some real clueless AI guards who will fail to react to me being near them and shooting their buddies, but that doesn't happen often. Otherwise the AI guards do often move to cover, then pop, shoot, and duck. On the harder difficulty levels I might be getting rather frustrated by their skill, they are no slouches. As it is, on Casual difficulty I find that in an assault I usually have to go hide to recover my health several times, and the drug cabinets (health dispensers) are vital to success.

About the only real problem I've had with the game is the camera when driving over rough terrain. It's fixed in location to the vehicle, so when the vehicle (especially something small like an ATV) bounces and lurches so does the camera, giving me just a twinge of motion sickness. Nothing really that's going to stop me, but I'm thinking it would have been nice to include a setting option to have a more relaxed camera motion.

I need to update some info I posted above regarding "You can save anytime except when you are in canned missions". Yes, that's true, but when you load the save you end up at the nearest friendly faction stronghold or the original starting house. You do not start where you did the save. This isn't a big deal for me, since I don't lose any points gained or anything like that, but it does mean that if you suddenly have to stop playing and you at somewhere really cool, well, you'll be back at base when you load  icon_neutral

"come a cropper" - "Fall over or fail at some venture". You guys never watched Blackadder? Monty Python? Or read Dickens? Avez-vous bénéficié d'aucune éducation?

Likes
- Wide open world that contains much variation; cities, little towns, military bases, huge mountains, deserts and the like. Richly detailed. Like Far Cry meets GTA San Andreas.
- The vertical element. If Ezio Auditore da Firenze had grapples like these you'd have gotten through Assassin's Creed II a lot faster. Between the grapples and the parachute you can get to the top of almost everything which adds a lot of places to explore. And it also provides a different way to look at getting from point A to point B. Not to mention opening up the options on how you approach a mission or activity.
- Day/night cycle and weather. Really adds to the immersion factor.
- Different things to do. Play a canned mission, hunt down the evil Colonels, gather Chaos points, do Races, incite mayhem just for the hell of it, or just explore. Think Red Faction: Guerrilla set in Hawaii, except that most buildings don't explode.
- Cultural Immersion. The designers did a nice job of integrating all the elements of place names, characters, vehicles and most other elements (except some of the desert area buildings) in a south-east Asian theme. Adds to the immersion.
- Save system. You can save anytime except when you are in canned missions. Those start off with an autosave checkpoint so you can restart there if you die or fail. Also, you have the option to abandon a canned mission at any time.

Dislikes
- Timed missions. I've only found one so far, but it was very frustrating. I could see that with upgraded weaponry I might be able to do it better, but I'm afraid if I wait on the mission till I advance in the game the opposition will also be tougher.
- Weapon management. Unless I just haven't come across it, there seems to be no way to stockpile weapons I pick up. Since I can carry only two one-handed and one two-handed weapons, if I buy myself a sniper rifle but have to drop it to pick up an assault rifle for the next part of an assignment, that expensive sniper rifle is lost to me. It might be realistic, but it's a pain in the butt, especially combined with the next item.
- Ammo. Apparently I can't buy ammo on the black market, I have to buy a whole new weapon. And there are certain times you will need more ammo that you just can't get from the enemy. That's an expensive proposition.
- Difficulty. There's no way to change the difficulty once you have started a run through the campaign. For some folks this isn't an issue, but for others, they are going to be pissed at putting in hours and then finding they just can't get around one mission.

Neither Good nor Bad
- The Story. OK, it's rather basic so far, just a frame on which to hang the missions and other activities. But it doesn't really seem to be a problem. Very much like Mercenaries 2: World in Flames
- The Black Market system. I can get weapons and vehicles (and other stuff in a category which I haven't unlocked yet) delivered to me, which is good. But apparently I can't store them, so if they get left behind I can't retrieve them (someone correct me if this isn't true, I'd love to be mistaken on this).
- No screenshot or video capture (I'm playing the 360 version). This game so cries out for being able to share those "wow" moments.

Any sandbox style game that I don't finish, such as Far Cry 2, is usually because of the lack of good narrative to carry me forward.

It's interesting, the comparison to Far Cry 2. It's one of the few games I've gone back to because of the things to do outside the main storyline. I restarted JC2 on Casual but after the obligatory first Agency missions I went off to a different Faction and started that thread. But after the first faction mission I went off looking around and just go sucked into the game. One thing very different from FC2 is that there is so much you can do in so many ways that don't have anything to do with combat.

Obviously I haven't gotten in very far and so cannot judge the strength of the narrative. I suspect it's somewhere between Borderlands and Oblivion slywink. The scenery in the game is attractive, varied and quite detailed. And, damn, it's just a lot of fun.
