Sodas is my addiction though. It's going to be hard. I mean I drink a lot of sodas. But I know once I go awhile without I'll never even notice it. Plus BEA's kidney stones stories scare me lol. I can't imagine the pain he's went through.
The salmon ladder will be the first but we're still a ways off from doing it. I've looked up blueprints but I've only found what other people have done and I don't like them lol. You can purchase them from the ANW site but F that. Once I get it built I'll show you pics. One handed? Baby steps, my friend. Baby steps.
I did it! That's going as my proudest achievement. My stomach was in my mouth during the last battle at the airport. Watching becker's blown up body fly away after blowing up the grenade was so satisfying, especially since I almost died at the end (one bullet left in last stand as the guy was running into cover ).
Brian was a beast. Yeah there were some great runs this week. I'm glad the guy with the sick wife finished too. My brother and I are going to build some of the obstacles here soon. The salmon ladder being the first lol. I'm not looking to try out or anything, I just want to be healthier. That also means cutting back sodas.
I know they masked loading times, but there comes a point when it just becomes ridiculous. How convinient that the loading finished right when the long ass cutscene ends? I like watching some of them, but they become so repetitive.
Oh well. I'll set that aside for the weekend or during the summer since I'm done with it next thursday. Oh well, I'll stock up on painkillers (just for those fucking cutscenes to take them away for no reason).
And yeah the gold guns carry over. That's useful because those guns are actually pretty powerful.
I'm so scared for chapter 11 (panama), chapter 13 (police station), and chapter 14 (shootout in the baggage room and the shootout with Becker specifically). Chapter 7 as well because that is such a long chapter. I'll just practice not dying on the regular NYM (I can get up to chapter 11 without dying I'm sure).
I might do that but I wouldn't mind going through the game again. I really enjoyed the experience despite its annoyances (mainly the lack of an ability to skip cutscenes. I can understand forcing them the first time, but on subsequent playthroughs you should be able to skip them). Plus, it's progress for grinds and it trains me for what's to come on NYM.
Difficulty is confirmed to be medium. I searched everywhere and people are saying that the difficulty is not the hard part but rather the act of doing it in one sitting without dying against the clock. What I'm worried about is the glitches. I had a glitch on chapter 7 (longest one, lol) where the RPG at the end didn't spawn no matter what, so I'm gonna lose my mind if that happens there.
That reminds me, do the gold guns carry over to those modes as well? I don't suppose you remember, but those would help a lot.
