only single-player grind achievement left.
i think NYM-HC is easier than Hardcore-mode cus it just
Normal mode + no checkpoint with experience from beating 'old-school' mode should be enough only need to remember 'instant dead part'.

As far as I can see the vertical invert fix still doesn't work. I just tried it and for me at least, the left analogue stick is STILL controlling the scope (and walking your character at the same time). Anyone else still finding this to be the case?

I hope this isn't big. My internet's gash ATM and I'm still trying to finish the free 1.2GB online upgrade for Burnout Paradise. I started it on Saturday.

Also, HXC playlists~! They needed to reduce the kills on that as I'm level 26 and only have about 2,500 kills online. 5,000 was too much considering the rate at which people are giving up on this game's MP. Rockstar Vancouver need to line their game testers up against a wall.

Nice, I'm obsessed with this game. Though I'd like to hear about this DLC some more, my season pass is just waiting to be utilized!

Pretty sweet game, haven't played it in a while, just found the doing the campaign over and over for all achievements a bit repetitive, but Multiplayers's fun :)

The 2 big issues I've had are fixed with this update! Infinite bullet time cheat not unlocking and Scoped weapons being southpaw were both issues I suffered from!

"Fix for scope weapons incorrectly becoming southpaw (wrong stick) for users playing with inverted vertical axis"

So, for everyone then? ;) Invert or death! Literally... without invert I die all the time.

They would fix all these problems after I've already went and dealt them. Stil, if I play multiplayer again it should be way more fun/fair.

Now they fix the South Paw crape like #18, I too thought it was just bad design. It made the stadium level and not missing achievement a real b--ch to get.

Too bad I have moved on.
