Think I meant to respond to this but I missed it somehow.

If you wanted to play 1999 mode as soon as you booted up the game, you could press start at the main menu and begin right away and get the achievement, but I unlocked 1999 mode by simply completing the game.

Quote:
Needless to say, no I didn't. I'm playing through on Hard difficulty. I'm only going through it once for now and I'm going to send it back so I can keep going through my Gamefly list, but once the game is $20-$30 I'll pick it up for my collection and run through for the 1999 playthrough and collectible clean-up.

And actually, once I finally got out of the Cemetery the rest of her encounters became really easy. She had me cornered in the first encounter and I ended up getting a lucky melee kill and recovered enough salt to do a Charge attack, so I flew at her and just started swinging my claw like a mad man. Got lucky and took her out just as my shield broke. After that fight, each time I encountered her I had a machine that would sell me health and salt, so it was a walk in the park. I'm dreading the achievement for 1999 mode without using any of the Big Bill machines though... Between this and the Handymen. I really hate those things...
Have fun with Infinite, the story was something I've never really experienced before. I thought it was something special.

So far in 1999, I haven't used a Dollar Bill machine yet. It's nowhere near as bad for me as was Dead Space 2 Hardcore. But you can still use the vigor and armory machines without voiding the scavenger hunt achievement. Right now I believe I have 2,433 silver eagles and I'm just over halfway through. I spent an upgrade to be able to possess humans with the possession vigor, and I boosted up the damage I can deal with the RPG.

Quote:
Also, top 5 favorite games of 7th gen:

1. Mass Effect 2
2. Portal 2
3. Catherine
4. Bioshock: Infinite
5. Heavy Rain
Catherine? Hmm. There's a title that seemed underrated. Added to my backlog. And Bioshock: Infinite is already up there, yet you haven't completed the story?

Quote:
Hopefully I can get a few replacements in here. I'm hoping The Last of Us, The Last Guardian, and Beyond: Two Souls can edge their way in.
Troy Baker is all over the place.

I'm keeping an eye on Remember Me, since I don't have a PS3 I can't experience the games you mentioned. But I think Infinite is it for me this gen. I was interested in AC4: Black Flag but Ubi announced another AC title for 2014, so I'd rather hold off and see if that game would appeal to me more than Black Flag. If not, then Black Flag would be out by the time we get more knowledge on the 2014 AC, and those trusty people in the forum's inevitable bitching thread would be too glad to point out Black Flag's potential flaws.

If Destiny and Watchdogs are out on 7th and 8th gen consoles, I'll hold out and move on to the 8th gen stuff from then on, instead of playing them on the 360.

Always seems to be the case since I also enjoy Morrowind more than both Skyrim and Oblivion (except for the damn combat system. I really need to see if the PC version has a mod to make the combat more enjoyable.) I still play Morrowind on a regular basis.
One thing that I do enjoy about Bethesda's games is the atmosphere. Specifically, GNR from Fallout 3. Never did get tired of those songs.

Quote:
I will say right now that Mass Effect 2 and 3 are vastly different from Mass Effect 1. The combat system ditched the arcade-nature and went for more of a cover-based shooter like Gears. Leveling up still exists for your biotic abilities, but the guns are much more functional now (they also put more emphasis on squad use and eliminated the armor/weapon I-X system.) They also eliminated driving the Mako on Uncharted planets in favor of Planet scanning and finding more characterized side-missions on various worlds. Overall, like I said, Mass Effect 2 is easily the best in the series and easily my favorite game this generation. The storyline was weak and somewhat limited, but the universe was detailed and the character development was superb. If you enjoy the series, you'll grow more attached to the characters in Mass Effect 2 and 3 than in any other game you've ever played.
Ah. There's one thing I actually enjoyed in ME1 (driving the Mako), yet others seemed to complain about it excessively. The thing I'm worried the most of though is ME3's ending. So if I do go through with the franchise, I wonder how dissappointed I could possibly get with it. I don't know what the ending is yet, but based on some comments I've seen, it was vomit-enducing.

See, it must be a Jersey boy thing, because Ty and I see eye to eye on so many gaming topics. I agree with him 100% about NV>3. I hated the tunnels/metros in Fallout 3, and debris everywhere that navigating the map was awful! There were times when I would shut off the game because I simply didn't understand how to get to a quest...lol.

I only played ME1 with a friend and hated it...more like watched him play since I didn't wanna even bother...but, I never saw the appeal, didn't care at all so my opinion of ME series won't be voiced further here. Seems like an overrated game to be honest though.

Bethesda sucks.
We're too good for Halo related discussion. But I feel you for BioShock I guess.

Gackt has definitely gotten to you though. Come back to us Lemons, don't do this!! In all honesty though, that blows. I've never understood why people have their games glitch/freeze on them so often, especially in Bethesda's RPG's...I've never experienced such dilemma

Hey Dark, I've never played Oblivion (I know, I'm an awful person). The GOTY is only $18 on Amazon, do you think I would be able to look past the shitty graphics and animations and appreciate the game?

I'm with you on Destiny and Watch Dogs, I'd rather buy them for next-gen than this gen. By the way, you check out that Character Development Vid on the News Page? Destiny characters look badass.

Speaking of next gen though, Rainbow 6 Patriots, Thief 4, Cyberpunk 2077, Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Halo 5 are also some good games I'm looking forward to. Two Assassin Creed titles though...that's just fucking ridiculous. I don't think I'll even buy either to be honest.

I'd say go for it. The graphics really aren't that outdated and the gameplay itself is more than fun enough to warrant spending $18.

I'll take the advice. Better to spend $18 on a game everyone speaks highly of, than to skip over it and never experience it.

Catherine is a game you'll want to be a fan of Puzzle gaming, anime, and lots of talking. The game is broken into two portions, dream mode and reality. Reality is mostly cutscenes where you interact with your girlfriends and your friends. The other portion of reality is spent in the bar socializing with patrons and having drinks (it teaches you some neat facts about different types of alcohol if you're into that kind of thing.) The dream portion of the game is almost completely puzzle-based and has you climbing towers of blocks. You have to push, pull, and completely reshape the levels on a time limit to reach the bell at the top. The game is absolutely brutal on the hardest difficulty. Even the Japanese struggled to beat it when it first came out.

Bioshock: Infinite's place on my top 5 was merely based on what I had experienced so far. Up until the point fighting one of the bosses, I had nothing but praise for the game. The music, the setting, the dialog, Elizabeth's Character design. The game was flawless. Now having gotten past the boss fight and completing the game this morning, I think it's going to be staying where it was. The ending was just... wow. My brain still hurts trying to figure it out. Definitely one of the most thought-provoking endings I've seen in a game in forever. More controversial than the ending to Mass Effect 3, though not in a bad way.

Remember Me is one I'm keeping an eye on, but I reserve judgement for now because it seems like it could be a bit rough around the edges. As for Assassin's Creed, I got sick of those games after Brotherhood. I just couldn't bring myself to beat Revelation and I haven't even touched AC3. I grew bored after the Brotherhood. As for Destiny, Watchdog, etc..., I'm the same. I'm saving the experience for Next-Gen consoles. Just not decided if I should go with PS4 or Durango next. Wish they would hurry up and show us the new Xbox already.

Honestly I enjoyed the Mako bits as well. They were a bit bland at times since all the worlds were too alike, but I wish they would've fixed it rather than dumping it completely. ME2 did introduce a DLC vehicle feature called the Hammerhead that was pretty fun though.

As for Mass Effect 3's ending, don't listen to what other people are saying. It's really not THAT bad. The biggest complaint I had for ME3 was that the decisions made in ME1 and ME2 ulimately had no effect on the outcome of ME3, only the dialog you're given (which is still cool since the universe is personalized to your own preferences.) In ME3 the big thing is collecting War assets. There are 2 default endings plus a third one if you get the free Extended Cut ending DLC and having a high enough asset score opens up a 4th option. The only real issue with the ending that I had was that ending 1, 2 and 4 had the same video, just with different colors. The Extended Ending fixes that, though, and adds more footage and dialog to each of the 3 endings.

Like I said, ME3 wasn't as good as 1 and 2, but it was by no means terrible like people have been saying. As long as you take the time to understand the ending, it's pretty tolerable (plus it's fun to follow the Indoctrination theory videos on Youtube afterward.)

If you get Oblivion, definitely try to get the GOTY edition so you can get your hands on Shivering Isles. Best part of the entire game. Love the voice actor that played Sheogorath. But yeah, like Ty-Rex said, it's definitely an excellent game. It starts out slow, but as your abilities develop the game will start to pick up. The only real downside to the game was most of the caves looked the same. Skyrim had a bit more variety in dungeons, but this is by no means unbearable. You'll spend more time in the cities anyway. The side-missions were a lot more creative than Skyrim IMO. The Dark Brotherhood and Thieves Guild storylines were nothing short of brilliant.

Thief 4!!! It's been too damn long! Ready for my fantasy Splinter Cell game to come out Cyberpunk I have my eye on, same as FO4 and H5. Not interested in Witcher. As for R6:P, I'm interested, but disappointed because I feel like we're playing the wrong side. I don't want to work for the Government. I want to be working for those "Terrorists" the True Patriots. They're actually fighting to take the country back from Government corruption and Big Business greed. They're the true heroes, but we're forced to hunt them like terrorists. My political views are getting in the way with this one.)

Sounds excellent. The GOTY is extremely cheap so I'll probably pick it up after I play Batman Arkham City. I saw the first 30 minutes of gameplay on some dude's Let's Play, and it seems like a solid game, just very different in terms of combat and whatnot but I'm sure I'll like it if I stick to my word and buy it.

As someone who never played Thief before (because the were all PC titles, weren't they?) Thief 4 looks and sounds great. I read a huge article on it and I'm certain it's gonna be awesome. I hope Cyberpunk turns out good, it has a lot of potential. Lol, yeah Rainbow 6 Patriots is gonna be different if you look at it like that But I'm excited for the game, I loved the first two and it's been a while since I've had some good Co-Op T-Hunt games, or just a tactical shooter to play. Next gen is gonna be tight It's just a matter of do I want it right away, or do I wait for like 3 solid games to come out for it before buying it, or wait for a Halo-themed one like the Halo 4 Xbox. Decisions, decisions.

I intend on owning both, but it's more a matter of which one to get first. If Halo 5 is out by 2014, than I'll get the Xbox first, otherwise I'll probably get a PS4 and hold off on Xbox and pick it up when Halo 5 comes out. Honestly outside of Halo, the Xbox really has nothing left that interests me. They REALLY need to get some new IPs. Sony is seriously kicking their asses right now with exclusives like Last of Us, Last Guardian, Beyond, Infamous, LittleBig Planet, etc... All the Xbox has is Halo, Gears of War (garbage series), Forza (not into racing), and Fable (The last two have been garbage and I'm sure kinect support will continue.) They need to get back in gear. Especially Lionhead and Rare. They're both being squandered on crap. Take Rare off of Kinect Sports and get them working on a new Perfect Dark and revive the sequel to Conker. Get Lionhead to stop churning out Fable sequels and bring back B.C. (look it up if you don't know what it is) and make Black & White 3 for Xbox (hell, this game would be perfect for Kinect even.) On top of that, bring back Mechassault and Crimson Skies. Revive the True Fantasy Live Online series. Negotiate with Sega to bring Phantasy Star Online 2 to console. Try and get exclusive rights and nab sequels to Shenmue, Jet Set Radio, Oddworld, etc... That's not even touching on the fact that they need to start pumping out some new IPs.

It doesn't even have to be about Halo 5. Just do monthly videos. Even if they don't do Season 2 for Spartan Ops, they could still give us those gorgeous CGI cutscenes and continue the storyline. Hell, I'd pay just for the cutscenes alone if they make them 5-10 minutes longer. Or they could do another series like Forward Unto Dawn. I would prefer a running TV series over a Halo movie anyway. Focus on the different campaigns throughout the Covenant War. Animate more of the stories from Halo: Evolutions like they have been on Waypoint.

There's a lot of different things they could be doing. I just want them to do it in a way that's intelligent. Don't sacrifice quality over quantity, but keep the Halo machine turning. It's a big series like Star Wars, so there's no reason not to have a constant flow of content coming from it (maybe I'm being a bit greedy though. I did just finish the last book and I already want more )

I'll warn you now, the worst part of the game is actually the Oblivion gates. They're ok the first few times, but they get repetitive and there's one mission in the main storyline that requires you to shut down one Oblivion gate at each of the 8 main cities. Worst mission in the game, but past that it's pretty damn fun. I really want to start a new character and play through it again. Soon as I finish Metal Gear Rising, I'll probably go back for another playthrough.

Thief 1 and 2 were PC only, but Thief 3 was actually on the original Xbox as well (Ironic this was brought up, but I bought a copy of Thief 3 about 3 weeks ago and it just showed up in the mail today. So excited to have my copy again. My Original Xbox collection is nearing perfection. All I'm really missing that I'm interested in is Republic Commandos, GTA3, and Deus Ex and I'm done

I haven't really like a Rainbow Six game since Rainbow Six 3 and the Black Arrow expansion pack. Somethings always felt off about them. Didn't much care for Vegas, but I never tried Vegas two. Ghost Recon went from crap (GRAW) to good (Future Soldier) and Splinter Cell appears to be coming back from the brinks with Black List (Conviction wasn't bad, but wasn't quite Splinter Cell) so maybe Rainbow Six will too.

I also had no idea the maps got pushed back a week and I was coming here to talk about that but then I found out I was dumb so there's literally nothing Halo to talk about.

Spoiler! (click here to reveal)

Honestly outside of Halo, the Xbox really has nothing left that interests me. They REALLY need to get some new IPs.
Halo 5 probably won't be out until 2015, but that's just my though on a release year for it. Yeah, the only Xbox exclusive that I like is Halo, the rest don't interest me AT ALL.

But you bring up Rare...woah...what ever happened to them?

I want the Xbox because of Halo and it's where all my friends game, but I totally understand that the Playstation has better exclusives and I want to experience them but I can't afford both consoles. Wish I won me the lottery.

Quote:
It doesn't even have to be about Halo 5. Just do monthly videos. Even if they don't do Season 2 for Spartan Ops, they could still give us those gorgeous CGI cutscenes and continue the storyline. Hell, I'd pay just for the cutscenes alone if they make them 5-10 minutes longer. Or they could do another series like Forward Unto Dawn. I would prefer a running TV series over a Halo movie anyway. Focus on the different campaigns throughout the Covenant War. Animate more of the stories from Halo: Evolutions like they have been on Waypoint.
Lmao, I think I would pay for the cutscenes too Another series would be welcomed; I would like them to do something about the fall of Reach, but more like Nylund's novel than the shitty Reach Campaign.

Quote:
I'll warn you now, the worst part of the game is actually the Oblivion gates. They're ok the first few times, but they get repetitive and there's one mission in the main storyline that requires you to shut down one Oblivion gate at each of the 8 main cities. Worst mission in the game, but past that it's pretty damn fun. I really want to start a new character and play through it again. Soon as I finish Metal Gear Rising, I'll probably go back for another playthrough.
I'll keep that in mind! Is there a certain build/style (mage, archer, warrior, etc.) that is better than the rest in this game? The Let's Play I was watching said playing as a mage in Oblivion was the best. Not that it really matters, I just want to know if there truly is a certain class that trumphs the rest in this specific game.

Yeah, that just about explains why I've never played them. Oh well, I can wait 'til 2014 for the new one! I liked all the Rainbow games, never really had a problem with them. Vegas 1 was probably the best for me and my buddies though.

Shame Ghost Recon turned to shit. The only one I really remember played was Island Thunder on the Xbox and it was fun, but don't remember too many specifics from it other than it was hard lol. Never bothered with GRAW 1&2 or the new one from last year, Future Solider was it? The GRAW's looked boring and I played the demo for Future Soldier last March and it was bad...but for some reason I want to give the game a chance.

You have no idea how excited I am for Splinter Cell though! Go check out the "Abandoned Mill & Play Styles" video in those Forums if you haven't already, it's awesome!!

I really doubt Halo 5 will be out before 2015 also. I think 343 will stick with the 3-year development span that the series is known for.

Rare was the team responsible for a majority of the programming for the Kinect. They're also the developer of Kinect Sports Season 1 and 2. Like I said, they need to get away from this Kinect stuff (and Viva Pinata. As fun as the first one was, we really don't need another one) and focus on some heavy hitters again. Unfortunately most of the big developers left Rare after Perfect Dark and many more left after Rare was bought out by Microsoft. (They ended up forming Free Radical and developed Second Sight, TimeSplitters, Haze and Crysis 3. Supposedly now they're working on Homefront 2 and Timesplitters 4.) As for the remnants of Rare, I don't know if they really have what it takes to make another game like Perfect Dark, Conker, or Kameo.

On an off note, have you seen any of the concept art that leaked for Kameo 2 before it was cancelled? Looked gorgeous. Just compare the original graphics to what they're approach was here:

There is the recently finished Fall of Reach graphic Novel based on Nylund's novel. I've been too cheap to invest in it (ironic given the fact I just spent $340 on a UNSC Vanguard and 40 on a Plasma Pistol Laser tag set) but I want to get my hands on the hardback version of it soon to finish my book collection.

Honestly not really. Stealth is a little harder to get into in this game than it was in Skyrim, but otherwise all of the classes can get the job done really well. I typically play a balance between Mage and Soldier just so I can have a few spells to fall back on. (One thing I could never get into in this series is alchemy and the use of potions and poisons, but enchanting was really useful in this game, especially if you could boost agility. I like to enchant everything I could with agility boosts and max out my agility skill so I could run across the entire region in a few minutes. Always good fun and something I really missed from Skyrim.

I agree with Ghost Recon. I really enjoyed the original and the Island Thunder expansion. The first Person perspective and the original teamwork emphasis made for a unique experience. I just didn't like how they did the second one and GRAW. For what it's worth though, I enjoyed Future Soldier. It was more like Full Spectrum Warrior and XCOM than the Ghost Recons though. You have to go in expecting strategy more than gunplay.

I liked both Viva Piņatas though But yeah, I don't see the appeal in Kinect and never will, so they need to come back to reality and please their original fan base. So Free Radical is working with Crytek then? But who knows, maybe one day they'll surprise and return to their roots.

I can't say I ever remember playing Kameo unfortunately, but that concept art does look pretty good.

I'll probably pick that up sometime soon too, and you finally got a Vanguard!? I can't bother with that

Ahh alright. I'll probably just do what I usually do and make a Paladin but with light armor rather than heavy. I don't think I ever bothered with alchemy unless I was making those overpowered potions to buff my gear to it's max level.

I also noticed the interface for your gear menu and quest log is obviously very different and arrows have weight -_- lol, the littlest things always seem to bother me.

Yeah, it was definitely unique and mature for it's time back in the day, but now it seems the games just aren't too good. Lol, unless one is playing with a solid group of friends/acquaintances, teamwork in impossible with Xbox Live's immature online community! Which sucks because it would make the game 10x better when you can consistently find a good tactical-working team every match.

Yeah. Free Radical was bought out by Crytek and became Crytek UK just not too long ago. It would be nice to see them come back to Rare, but I don't think that's going to happen as long as Rare is stuck doing things like Kinect Sports (I enjoyed Viva Pinata too, but it's not a game that warrants a sequel IMO. It's kind of like a Madden game. They'd be better off supporting the game with DLC. Add new Pinatas and new items to buy instead of charging for a whole new game.)

Yeah. Was just randomly browsing Ebay when I came across it and figured what the hell. Should be showing up in a few days. Useful since I'm getting ready to move. It'll be easier to hook up to that than dragging my TV around.

And hey, we're back on topic. Kinda of. It's Halo related, so yeah.

I love how i see you 3 forum nazis always quick to tell newcomers to the site that they need to use appropriate forums and stay on topic, but you fags have turned this into a random rant about how much of nerds you really are. Not a single thing about halo is mentioned by any of you? Maybe you should all take your own advise and post in the "appropriate forums" or better yet add each other on live and have a little circle jerk about how you've never seen a vagina before or whatever. Keep on topic

I have never told anyone to use an appropriate thread or whatever, but you keep on being mad, bro.

Oh wait, am I not a nazi? You only said 3. Can I please be a forum nazi, Chris??

edit: Lemons won't add non IRL friends on XBL so that's why we can't circle jerk about vaginas on live.

Have fun being banned dude. There's absolutely no reason for such outrage and cusses against us. So we're nerds? That's fine, how does it effect you? Assuming we're virgins and loners? You say that as though you think it's true and personally know us. Keep your built up anger to yourself and let us be. People like you are so immature.

Welp, YOLO. Boi u no wat's up fo sho' ain't nothin' but monkeyshines motherfuckers

I think xxdiamondxxinfernoxx is a big bully, like the kind of kid that smashed my spectacles in 1st grade and my dad put scotch tape on the frame because he was to cheap to get new ones. Maybe xxdiamondxxinfernoxx just wants a friend. Maybe, just maybe, we should let xxdiamondxxinfernoxx join in on our conversations. No time for friendzones, let's begin his initiation.

xxdiamondxxinfernoxx, what is the function of a rubber duck?

The Halo 4 Castle Map pack is going to come with 3 new maps based on various fictitious locales around the Halo universe. It will include a new set of achievements and be included alongside a Title Update that will introduce the new Skill-based ranking system and Multi-team playlists.

That's the extent of what we know. Nothing left to talk about.

He said it, not me. I was just being a smart ass ^_^

but I think the point hidden in my post was that there's really nothing to discuss right now. When we get more info or when the maps come out, I imagine more topics will pop up to discuss the maps.

Halo 4 Castle Maps will be bad wow what a story mark

I just want everyone to know that Lemons sent me a PM full of movie spoilers ending with saying that Cortana has AIDS.

That guy is cray.

Here's all the topics:

"NEED 2 4 BOOST"
"LOOKING TO BOOST"
"BOOST MOBILE WHERE YOU AT?"
"Castle Maps suck"
"Opinions On New Maps"
"How To Get (Insert Achievement Here)"

Lol, seems about right. Also, what's your guy's thought on me doing the Achievement Guide & Roadmap for it? I figured since I did the other two DLC's the community would be okay with me writing the last one.

I think Lemons wanted to write it, but idk...lemme know fellas.

Go for it. And Lemons can do one too. Than the two of you can get together in the ring and have a fight to the death over which one will compete with my own. Mwuhahahahaha!

Nah. J/K. I got my Halo: Anniversary guide, so I'm content. I'm representin' the best Halo game of all, so it's all good.

And shit, I just remembered I'm still missing a Halo Wars achievement. I'm on vacation this week, so I probably ought to boost that and get it done. Only have 14 matches left until it's finished.

Don't 4get "Create Achieverments four new mpa pak" thread.

We actually haven't had an official one in a while. Or so it feels like.

Edit: Oh yeah and I don't mind if D writes the Guide when the achievements are revealed

Reppin' Halo for Life. RH4L.

I still have Halo Wars in the wrapping lol. I hate RTS games, even if it is Halo.

Sounds good. I usually put up the Guide as soon as the achievements are revealed but the Mods have been cracking down on me lately for doing that -__- So I'll wait til Sunday night/Monday morning.

You have no idea. I've been up for the past 48 hours working on Project: Halo. At this point I'm thinking of skipping the Type Font idea, so that just leaves me with a few more video edits, the decision of making either a flashy DVD or a basic Thumb Drive, and the final design for the box art (I still need to come up with a final name for the project.)

I'm happy it's almost done though. Some of the pieces like the Remember Reach ARG are more difficult to come by these days.

It's really not a bad game. You really should try it out. I enjoy RTS, but I'm terrible at them and even I was able to get through the game on Legendary.
