The yarnball is a real POS. It can run cars over like they are nothing but then will get completely stuck on the smallest little obstruction on the sidewalk.

I loved yarnball as it reminded me of Katamari!

Sad Panda and the mascots on roof achievement however, is proving tricky! Does having 2 players help at all?

I thought that with yarn ball but I replayed it and found out you have that super bounce by pressing RT. didn't realise it in first round so whenever there was a load of cars and them genki billboards around me I used that and I got so much damage in so little time (and then also got the combo achievement without meaning to). Just a little tip if you did the same as me

I got the season pass almost straight away...

...I wish I hadn't.

The yarnball is probably the best out of the new activities the others are just lame.

150mb of crap. such a shame.
Sad Panda is pretty much a re-skinned Trail Blazing with an altered countdown.

Yeah, a lot of complaints all over the place. Official forums were blowing up, but a lot of posts/threads were removed.

If you can't handle a bit of hate, why even bother?

Question Difficult?

This DLC better be harder than what the story had to offer. Fun game, glad i bought it, but hard to remember if its not a little challenging.

I have downloaded both the free viewer pack and the official genki bowl thing (I do own the season pass) and the missions are not showing up in my phone. When I load up the game it shows that I have the Cheapy D thing but not the genki bowl dlc. Also, I cant seem to find my viewer pack in my hard drive and the only thing there is a pack: the second. Not sure if that is genki bowl or not. I have tried redownloading and deleting the pack: the second, but no luck. Any help?

Anyone have any good strategies on the Cat on a Hot Tin Roof achievement? It's proving to be a bit tricky. The Achievement guide is pretty vague with no video or real tips.

So anyone?

Edit: I got it. Seems I like to post for help sooner than I should. Advice would be try shooting for the Gat Mascots first in the first Activity. After the first initial 2. Go for the Panda's they give u more lift.

Anyone notice when you start up the DLC and in the intro where the announcers are talking, at the bottom of the screen it's showing news and in that news it says Johnny Gat alive? Then it goes on to talk about rumors.. I thought that was kind of interesting

I noticed that too. Maybe we will find out in the future dlc?

my thoughts, okay.

Apocalypse Genki, background different, but it is like the Professor Genki S.E.R.C.

Super Ethical PR Opportunity is like Eye of The Tiger

Sexy Kitten Yarngasm is like Tank Mayham/Mayham

the 1 thing that is Different is Sad Panda Skyblazing

so think of what i said when you play this genki bowl missions, you'll say "hay it is like this"

0:26 - Gangstas in Space to begin filming next month. Hopefully there is an update to accompany this in the game. Whether a certain area of the map is partially closed off or there is film crew as pedestrians.

1:01 - Johnny Gat rumours made it into the game, whether through an update or it was planned this way. However it was implemented, it adds fuel to the fire.

Very interesting. Volition can do some great things with news items like the two above.

I lost my savegame, can I get all these Genki Bowl Achievements without playing the story again or something ? Because otherwise I won't purchase the dlc.

One of the season pass DLCs has something to do with clones, so the Johnny Gat is alive bit on the news feed made me think ( more so than before ) that Johnny has been or will be cloned. Maybe the Johnny Gat the Saints held a funeral for was just a clone......

Not really. I have the season pass, and I felt a touch ripped off. Given how short the main game felt compared to SR2, I shouldn't have expected much.

I've had fun with this DLC but I've also had my frustrations with it...Yarn is just annoying controlling it, like a poster mentioned you can easily get stuck on the smallest thing! I got caught once and I couldn't move for ages. Wasn't very impressed with that part of the game.

I got stuck numerous times. I guess THQ firing loads of people at Volition wasn't quite so wise an idea...

@mrniconi

It's supposed to show up as a mission in your phone.

I'm not sure if you have to finish the game, but it's worth a try since the homie activated but the mission didn't.

Glitch.

reload save game, go back to the island. clear system cache. you should be able to enter the door.
