Genki Bowl DLC Discussion Thread
 
Got it yet? If not, here's a workaround. Of course, this will only work if you have a season pass.
  • Download viewer pack. It's for free.
  • Load your game
  • You will get confirmation that you have new content
And that's it. Go to your phone to start your Genki Bowl missions.

Now, that's out of the way, I thought I'd make this to TRY and keep the discussion to one thread, instead of spreading it out all over the place.

So far, so good. Unlocked an achievement without even trying (Storm the Yarn). Having a good laugh at the content, especially rolling around the city as a giant ball of yarn.

Can't wait to play it. Just waiting for it to be available for the season pass. As is always the case with season passes... Every game that has one seems to make you wait 3+ hours after it hits the marketplace before you can download in the game. But oh well it should hopefully be worth the wait :)

That's not the entire thing. There is a little more.


Two more activities follow, with a few extra pieces of clothing and new vehicles.

Refer to the OP. Download the viewer pack and it will give you access to the paid-for content.

yoda12320 01-17-2012 01:22 PM

But it says not to if you have it, so I should have it if I have the Season Pass.

Doesnt say if your a season pass holder download this. Why with the weird add on for season pass holders?

yoda12320 01-17-2012 01:26 PM

I hope volition makes SR 3 next dlc alot better, this one is "ok" but far from worth the 560 msp imo.

Music Man SUB 01-17-2012 01:33 PM

Woow, this Genky thing was really stupid... The activities were fun and all but I was done with everything in just about an hour... I hope the next DLC has a bit more bang for your buck.

Dude, it does not matter. It's for free! It is not costing you anything to download it. If you read the description, it says that it will allow you to play co-op with those who have the purchased DLC. It also makes mention of season pass holders to not download, so that right there says it will work vice versa.

It's the same files are the paid-for content. Only difference is, the free add-on has the island locked out.

Here's the third activity.

Yeah that was a pain, I am guessing you are talking about the killing all the mascots, finally managed to do it...you can just ignore the rings if you're going for this and go for the highest buildings first, be quick and kill everyone and also you need to make sure you don't walk into the stars first. I am not sure you can go back to the same building if you get shot out of the cannon?

Soap of Death 01-17-2012 02:10 PM

4 activities actually:

Super Ethical PR Opportunity - Similar to the escort missions. Kill pedestrians, targets and mascots that Genki points out to you. Avoid overzealous fans (they hound you like the media vans).
Apocalypse Genki - Super Ethical Reality Climax with sharks really..
Sexy Kitten Yarngasm - Mayhem with you as a big ball of yarn.
Sad Panda Skyblazing - Skydive through flaming rings, stopping to kill mascots on rooftops with a chainsaw and then land on the target marker. (just like when you did base jumping)

You do them all two times each. Only Sad Panda Skyblazing gave me some trouble.

Normal Pedestrians and gang members(saints at least) just keep driving around building flame fuel then burning large groups as theres no time limit. the achievement will pop up during the activity once you have acomplished it

Make Good Use of the balloons (both ethical and un-ethical) as they will help you get back onto the roofs to kill mascots the rings dont really matter because when you clear the roofs you make an extremely large amount of money anyway

Soap of Death 01-17-2012 02:24 PM

Yeah you burn 50 pedestrians with the flamethrowers on the car.

As for tips on skyblazing I found it a lot easier to focus on the achievements individually.

I think you can't beat the activity simply by going through all the rings and landing in the target marker and that you actually have to kill some mascots as well.

I did one run just going through the rings. Hold the :ls: forward to go through the rings, occasionally letting go and pulling back on the :ls: to prevent yourself from going over the top of some rings. You'll get the hang of it after a while.

Killing mascots is what annoyed me the most. Your best bet is to try and start on the taller buildings, killing everyone on it and then moving onto shorter ones. Don't hesitate to use the panda hot-air balloons to launch yourself up into the air making it easier to reach rooftops. You only lose $100 by doing so.

Patience is the key really.

I did these on the easy (first) SPS activity. I remember there being around 5 rooftops to clear. Not sure if there are more than 5 to clear on the medium (second) SPS activity.

DON'T pick up Genki, that way you can't fail the activity. Just make sure you stay a decent distance away so he can't get in.
Pay attention to the four red lights on the back of your car. Run over pedestrians to turn the lights green. Once all four are green you unlock the flame thrower for a limited time. Keep driving around until you get it then pick up Genki.
