I remember reading a recent article and the modders worked out a deal with Square Enix and Avalanche to make the mod legit. Pretty cool.

Re: Just Cause 2

i got this game downloaded last night and played the single player for a hour and a half. It is a freaking blast. Once i really get a handle on the grapple gun and parachute it will be even better. The shooting takes some getting used too. The voice acting is horrendous. I just care about gameplay in my old age so I just look past that.

Re: Just Cause 2

I suggest starting to play and see how it goes. I recently started it via BC.

Wise words! I'd say that someone needs to lay off the Mountain Dew while dvdtalking.

Re: Just Cause 2

ok, loving this so far. kinda like what the new version of Bionic Commando should have been with Rico's amazing grappling hook. love the destruction and not so hard controls.

but, i have these purchased add-ons, but how do i access them in game? i don't see them or how to access them. thanks.

Re: Just Cause 2

I think they pop up in your inventory. I played on the PC.
The DLC air gun is absurdly overpowered. Don't use it if you want any challenge. Might as well be a hand held nuke for the damage it does to all nearby enemies.

Thanks Deck, but how do I access inventory? I just had to pick up my first gun in game. Only a pistol...

Been a while since I played this, but aren't there crates around where you grab weapons. Can also call in drops at some point.

Re: Just Cause 2

Try looking in the Black Market shop for your items. Iím guessing that you bought vehicles and weapons. I donít remember how far into the game you have to be for the market to unlock for you or if itís open right away.

Re: Just Cause 2

I do like the carnage and variety of ways to create carnage and easy markers to next goal. And the almost limited freedom to climb anything with grappling is super helpful...

so i got my first BM guy and let me understand this, all i purchased was to open item up for purchase, not get it from BM dealer for free? i have to pay for everything. what kind of junk is that? and you have to repurchase evertime you lose? How do you build and keep an aresenal? Ridiculous.

This would definitely be great with a remastered edition. The 360 controls are a little clunky and really seems last gen. I can’t drive for shit, but I can grapple great distances in no time, but would be nice to drive to a checkpoint. And starting a mission completely over if you die is the pits. Still fun, something about it, is keeping me interested...for now that it...

Re: Just Cause 2

eh, i'm about done with this game. i finish a mission or stronghold then i don't know where to go next or what to do. there is a bar that fills up for agency mission. i suppose i have to wait for that to fill to get another mission? i don't know how to do that or what. very frustrating as much fun as i was having. and this starting a mission completely over when die is poor design...

Re: Just Cause 2

Just look at a game guide if you are that lost? It should take you a minute to see where you go next.
