related but tangential question......Anyone know if the "boss battles" in the SP campaign of GH3 are the "battle mode" of the game?   It seems logical that they would be but I can't find a definitive answer anywhere. 

If indeed they are, does anyone know definitively that you have to beat the boss'es to unlock all the songs in the game?

Bill Harris also raises this issue on his blog.

Yikes, I was going to get in on the GH craze with 3, but hearing about potentially impossible boss battles is turning me away.

the 0 is a zero

I even did a cache clear and it still shows weird.  Maybe a data issue atm.  I think I have 78 exp or something and Lieutenant rank, not GS rank 2.

So far this year, I've finished:

Bioshock
Halo 3
Gears of War

(I broke the WoW addiction, hence the short list)

I think the stat site is wonky right now, my rank is not displaying properly in the header, but if you go to rank history, the proper one it lit-up.

I have a lot of guardian kills too and I didn't think I had too many where someone flew off the map.  I guess there's a lot of grenade launches I don't see slywink
12011  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: I see no Deals for 360 Orange Box. You know of any? on: October 15, 2007, 03:16:51 PM
Orange box for PC is $39.99 at CC.com or in-store if you can find one in-store.  Free shipping, too.

Oops, this thread was for the 360 version.

If you look at your rank history, you can see what the deal is.  Once you hit 70 XP, you qualify as an "officer", as long as you have a minimum skill ranking of 10 in any playlist.  If you were under 10, but accumulated more XP, you'd go up in Gunnery Sergeant ranks.  Your next progressions are probably Lieutenant grade 2 at 85 XP, then Captain at 100 XP if you manage to get to skill level 20 in something.  Otherwise, you'll just keep going up in Lieutenant ranks.

Ah I get it now!

Oh and are the achievements broken? I just killed 10 in a row without dying in team slayer but didn't get the achievement. Does that count as a free for all game or is that lone wolf only?

Lone Wolf only.

Or do what I do - use any wireless access point.  No config necessary as the 360 sees it as wired. 

KD, which one do you use?  I have a Netgear router and have been looking for something to work with it.

Maybe this is where I am unlcear on the access point, does it still have to be connected to the modem, or does it get it's signal from the router connected to the modem?

A followup question, what's the 'easiest' way to see the legendary ending video, play chapter 9 on legendary?

You don't even need to do that - just load up the very last save point in chapter 9 on Legendary and play from there.

You will NOT get the achievement unless you play the entire game on Legendary. You will however get the video upon beating the game on Legendary, even if it was a checkpoint save.

sshhhhh!  we want to get him to do the whole game on legendary  icon_twisted

Man is that even possible?  I had some super tough parts going solo through Heroic, I can't imagine how much more difficult they would be!
12018  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 Impressions (No Spoilers) on: October 10, 2007, 05:10:25 PM
Ok so I did my first attempt at the meta game scoring achievements on the first mission.  I played Heroic with 3 skulls turned on.  The enemy dodge one, the enemy double health one, and the no tracker one.  I scored over 19,000 total points, but I died 36 (!!!!) times and my final score was 13k.  I spent 77 minutes doing this.  frown  Now, I don't normally suck this bad, but MAN trying to kill that Brute with the hammer near the end of level 1 with double health was BRUTAL (no pun intended).  I shall try again tonight, but perhaps without double health slywink

I do get killed quite a bit, even in games that I place high in, but it's still a ton of fun.  I noticed that there's a stat tracked for assists and I usually have a ton of those, just some bastard steals my kill!

Do the new armors you unlock give you better abilities?

I gotta get MP3 finished so I can get me some skulls.

Oh, and I want to get the 1000 achievement points for this; 1000/1000 = Katana.

I saw someone last night with that, I was wondering how they got it.  There's a couple online ones I'm going to have a hard time getting, like the spartan laser one and the 3 x kill with 1 sword swing one.

BTW I found out that you can get skulls in Normal and it's so much easier to blow through the missions to get to them as well.  I'm glad I played through on Heroic, I would have felt cheated otherwise.  There's even less enemies on Normal.  One thing about those scoring achievements is that you have to play through the whole mission without saving, so it could get pretty dicey on some parts!!

Can you explain the scoring achievements to me?

How do you keep track of the points you have and such?  And do the checkpoints count as saves (I'd guess not).

ATB, here's a couple links that were given to me about campaign scoring.  Note that it's something you'd likely do after you win the game and are playing through again.

Here's campaign scoring 101:  http://www.bungie.net/News/content.aspx?type=topnews&link=h3campaign

Here's a guide to Skull mix n' match:  http://www.bungie.net/News/content.aspx?type=topnews&cid=12828


Checkpoints do not count, you can die and still complete the mission (unless you use the Iron skull) you just can't save and quit and then come back.

I kept trying to do combos also and I couldn't get the button presses down just right.  Maybe I just suck.  It became a button mash fest quite quickly for me.

Also, what's up with that camera?  Was there really no way to control which way it points?

that was kind of fun.  The graphics kind of bothered me though, with all the shimmering shadows.

I wasn't a big fan of the voice for Conan either.  I was looking forward to this game, but the demo feels meh to me.

What're your thoughts on the H3 MP set up?

I'm not sure I've found an MP game yet that is based on actual skill (singular) than the skills of a team.

Lone Wolves game type is a 5 man FFA game.  You can poach kills from other players, but it's just you against them.

I finished the campaign on Heroic last night and I want to go back now and get the skulls.  Since the skulls don't appear if you use a rally point, are they still visible on Normal?  I want to just collect them fast and then play the meta game on Heroic with some skull modifiers.

If I've never played a GH game, will I be really frustrated, or are there different difficulty modes to learn on?

Don't worry, these games ease you into things.  Easy has things greatly simplified and only uses three of the five frets.  Medium adds a 4th fret, Hard a 5th.  In addition, each difficulty level has various tiers that increase in difficulty as you go on.  So once you've mastered the 3rd or 4th tier of Easy, you might be ready to attempt the 1st tier of Medium, and so forth.

There's also a series of tutorials to go over the basic concepts.

Great, thanks man!

The level design is pretty confusing.  I know I got lost a few times (especially on the mission before the last one, I fucking HATED that one), I wish they just put in an arrow pointy thingy that tells you where to go, the game is on rails anyway, it's not like it would ruin the immersion. 

They did put in an arrow pointy thingy.  If you take too long to get to the next checkpoint, it pops up on your HUD with a little measurement of how far you are from the waypoint.  I used it frequently on level 7...

Yeah I noticed that if I took my sweet ass time, the game started to tell me where to go.

Here's another question . . . I just sent my 360 back to them . . . the DVD drive was making chainsaw noises while reading discs and only 50% of games would even load.  Will they do anything to try to fix the RROD pre-emptively while they have it for repairs?  I will be none too happy if I get it back and it RRODs right before Christmas . . .
I purchased mine Oct/Nov of last year by the way . . .

From what I've read at the xbox.com forums, all consoles sent in for repairs have the new heatsink and epoxy used on them to prevent over-heating issues.

I have one of the new HDMI-enabled Premiums with a manufactured date of 7/4/2007.  While it does not have the new Falcon chip, it apparently has a new heatsink and a better method for attaching the chips to the MB.  So far, I've had no problems with it.

One thing I notice is that for the people who stand their 360 upright - you completely block one of the cooling vents on the box.  How that one passed the design phase is beyond me.   I also keep my 360 very ventilated and not stuck in an enclosed shelf.
