Hey guys I have a question in Feros...

Spoiler for Hiden:
I just killed a bunch of Krogans and retreived the guy's data on the OSD.  I now see an orange X on my map but I can't get anywhere.  All the areas I can walk to are enclosed and it appears I can go no further.  Did something bug out and I can't continue?

Not sure about that. But I landed on a planet and cleared it and wanted to get back to the Normandy. There was nothing I could do to get back. Totally bugged. I had to re-load a save 2 hours back. It hasn't happened since, but I wont get caught with my nearest save being that far back again.

It ended up being that the stairway was so dark I didn't see it at first.  When I finally came back to that particular room, I used the map and found there was a dark stairway there.

Has anyone else come across free roaming wild life yet?
 I was on a side quest on a planet and I stumbled upon a heard of animals that looked like kangaroos with strange limbs. I got out of the Mako and walked up to them and was surprised that the talk icon appeared. They didn't run away so I tried talking to them, but neither the critters or Sheppard said anything.
So does anyone think there might be talking animals on some planet?

I found those same animals.  I figured they just didn't code them properly to take away the talk action.

Yeah I'm going to 'borrow' one from Costco tomorrow until my replacement comes back.  Hopefully they have some in stock.  And it's #3, asshole

Good luck with that.  I hit 4 Costco's earlier this week trying to do the same thing, and there wasn't a 360 to be found anywhere.  One of the stock guys actually laughed when I asked when they were getting more in.

Worst case, I'll order one online.  I don't think it'll be much of an issue.

Gellar I live in the Bay Area and every single store I've gone into has 360s piled to the ceiling.  You'll have no problems finding it anywhere.

This question might've been answered in here... but I dunno... it's a long as thread full of potential spoilers.

How do I go into low profile mode?  I'm on the first pickpocket mission and the guy keeps turning around and looking at me... it said I need to be in low profile mode... does that just mean that I need to NOT be pressing the right trigger?  If I'm not in high profile mode, I'm in low profile mode?

Tips on pickpocketing?

Yeah if you're not holding the right trigger, then it should be low-profile mode.  When I pick pocket, I just watch the guy for a moment or two, so he has a chance to look over his shoulders, once he starts walking, I try and get close and pick pocket him right then before he starts to look again.

I am really not liking combat either.  I just don't get who thought this method of combat would be good for an RPG.  I also try and use Biotics during combat, but it seems like the enemy moves before it hits him and I'm just screwed because it's on cooldown.

Has anyone figured out how to use a headset plugged into an instrument to sing?  Or can you even do this?  Is that jsut for talking on Xbox live?

On a related note, does anybody's headset work when plugged into the drum set?

Mine does. You just have to tweak the connection by turning it in the jack until it works.  It's very touchy.  And you're using the adapter right?

I've been reading these impressions and it strikes me how easy you guys are going on this game.  Tweak the headset jack?  Online not working?  Guitars breaking after a couple hours?  So many people here were lashing out at Guitar Hero for the same things, but Rock Band gets a free pass?

Select to customize your character and when you get to the appearance section you will have the option of taking the Shepherd face or making your own. 

Thanks, Kevin.

I belive the chase is part of the assassination. Infact, the entire city goes on 'alert' once you've killed your target, as guards who see you from pretty far away give chase.

Yeah once you assassinate someone the city alert sounds and even if you get stealthy, you are still under red alert until you get back to the bureau.

Right, but that just means you get noticed that much easier.  In the scenario above, the guards were on me like flies on shit the moment I did the hit and it was about the most secluded place I could find.  It wasn't clear to me if fleeing at top speed or fighting my way out of the hospital was mandated or because I had somehow botched the assassination. 

Yeah I'm under the impression that it's just part of the assassination.  I'm 6 assassinations in and every one has become a chase after I make with the killing. 

EDIT:  I've been doing all my assassinations as stealth, if I mess up I die and start it over.

The nice thing about the AK with the silencer is the iron sights view is far less intrusive than some of the other assault rifles and the damage on it is good. It's a much better choice for a silenced assault rifle than the M4 which is the choice I see most often.

This is what bothers me about the m14.  I would MUCH rather be able to use the m14 with silencer than the g3, but it's simply not practical for me since I can't use the m14's iron sights and have no problem with the g3.

I'd love to use the M4 but it's so damn weak!  I'm looking forward to the assault rifle at 38 (maybe 37?)...you guys have any thoughts on that one?

Oh, and for the XBLA peoples, three announcements.  Halo 3 map pack on 12/11 (just post-return-of-t3h-ATB) for 800 points, Undertow this Wednesday for 800 points, and a nice sale on XBLA games for residents of the US of A - 50% on games from 11/21 through 11/26.

Gamerscoreblog:

Quote
First and foremost, we have just announced that there were be a Halo 3 map pack releasing on December 11th. From the media alert:

Available for 800 Microsoft Points exclusively on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, each map presents a totally different play style. Standoff’s symmetrical valley, with its entrenched bases and fields of boulders is ideal for mid-sized objective and Slayer game types, while Rat’s Nest’s vast, labyrinthine passages bring something new to the “Halo” multiplayer experience: an indoor vehicle paradise, strongly influenced by the Campaign mode, ideal for big team battles. Finally, Foundry is the ultimate Forge map – players can edit every single object in this voluminous industrial warehouse, place stairways, walls, bridges and tunnels to create an entirely new play space and build almost any kind of map they can think of.

And coming out this Wednesday on Xbox LIVE Arcade is Undertow.



"Undertow" redefines aquatic based shooters through a mix of high-definition graphics, intuitive controls and multiple modes of game play action. "Undertow" features a story driven single player campaign, on and offline co-op, and multiplayer for up to 16 players over Xbox LIVE. Players battle for control of the oceans as one of three selectable races, each with four unique, upgradeable units. "Undertow" will be available worldwide this Wednesday for 800 Microsoft Points and is rated E10+.
• For more details on “Undertow,” please visit http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/u/undertowxboxlivearcade/

Speaking of holiday sales, MSN Games is running a sale later this week. From the media alert:

In other Microsoft Casual Games news, Thanksgiving comes early this year with an MSN Games “Thanksgaming Sale.” Starting at 12:01 a.m. PST on Wednesday, November 21 (3:01 a.m. EST) through 8:59 p.m. PST (11:59 p.m. EST) Monday, November 26, ALL download titles on MSN Games will be 50% off in the United States only.

Been 55 for 3 days, finished the entirety of the first 3 prestige classes (except one that is bugged), and am +2000 kills. You need to play more dude smile I think my K/D is about 1.65, but I have to do the math myself so you never know.

PC version for me though. I still prefer the M4 to the AK-greatly, but the MP5 is probably my all around favorite weapon. I have a bunch of crazy combos I do, but usually I do my MP5 and some variation of primary perk. The M4, due to the extremely weak damage per bullet, can definitely be tricky to use though-I recommend it with stopping power or double tap (a perk you likely don't have yet) or maybe even sleight of hand. You need to maximize the amount of damage you can do.

Yeah yeah! I unlocked double tap either last night or night before. Explain it pleas.  Why do I need my gun to fire faster?  It's already an automatic weapon....

Also, I heard people talking about 'grips' last night. What do they do and when do you get them?

Faster rate of fire = more bullets = people die faster if you don't headshot them.  You can really see the difference with this on the M16, since it shoots in 3 bullet bursts.  If you miss that first burst, with double tap you can get another one off super fast.

Grips are only for some weapons, iirc the shotties and large machine guns.  It helps with recoil so when you shoot it does not aim straight up from kick-back.

Hey guys, once you get the mark from the bureau do you lose the ability to finish any remaining investigations?  I completed two investigations before I talked to the bureau and he gave me the mark and now I can't find anything but citizens being roughed up and view points to get.  crybaby

i've always made sure to do all the investigations first, but that would make sense.  once you go to the bureau for permission, you're essentially saying that you have all the necessary information to carry out your task.  from that point, you only goal is to kill your mark and escape.

Yeah that ended up being it.  I am worried I just screwed myself on an achievement now.
