Re: Just Cause 2 Demo

It was cute of K-Mart to advertise this for $45 and then not get any copies in.

Payback for the coupon, perhaps?

I just got around to playing the demo. Holy crap is it fun. I found a tank by one of the big bases and just went to town.

Re: Just Cause 2 Demo

There's a couple other videos of it up on Youtube and it definitely looks very cool. A nice little bonus for Lost fans.

Re: Just Cause 2 Demo

Well, after 10 fucking tries, I can't seem to steer my parachute right to land in the zone at the very beginning of the game.

Fuck this noise - I'm done. On amazon marketplace it goes.

Well, I'm sorry to hear that. Certainly for you, but mostly because I bought the PC version and it'll be unsellable when I start playing it. Still, I liked the demo so much I figued it was worth it. I should get it tomorrow and we'll see I guess.

Why are they being such DRM assholes with the PC version?

Your loss.

The most fun I have ever had in an open world sandbox game.

I felt the same way a couple missions after that when you have to
Spoiler:
ride on top of the car and shoot other vehicles coming from every direction while also being shot at.
Dying and then being sent back to the very beginning of the mission got really old really quick. But I finally got through it.

Still, I haven't been able to work up much enthusiasm for this game. I stopped playing shortly after that point.

I think we've established that for you frustrating = fun. For me, not so much.

Re: Just Cause 2 Demo

You're parachuting wrong. I did the same thing my first few times. Once you get on land, it's awesome.

Go into a dive when you first start off from getting the guys PDA...then pop the chute, and don't pull up...just glide. I made the mistake of pulling up on the chute the first few times.

Dive to get momentum, and pulling the chute will get you to the spot.

Give it a chance, this game is so much fun. I spent an hour last night just riding on top of cars and sticking people with the other end of the grappling hook, so they would drag behind.

Re: Just Cause 2 Demo

This game is great. It feels like a much better Mercenaries 2/Just Cause 1. Both had great ideas but slipped in execution. I got it from Gamefly, and in 30 mins i hit the keep it button.

Re: Just Cause 2

Okay, I'll give it another chance (if it hasn't sold by the time I get home), mostly due to hearing about a cool secret location in the game:
[not really a spoiler, but just in case]
Spoiler:
As an homage to Lost, I guess there's a secret island tucked away in a corner of the world, not visible on the map, where if you fly over it your plane will fall apart and crash, forcing you to chute onto the island, which contains a mysterious hatch among other things...

Re: Just Cause 2

I haven't cracked the seal on this one yet. Just started Metro 2033 and finished GOWIII & Killzone 2. I loved the demo and am looking forward to playing this. Glad to see the general feelings for this game echo the positive experience of the demo.

Re: Just Cause 2

If you're heading for that "secret" island be sure to parachute from your plane or boat as you near the shore as I made the mistake of staying on too long and blew up thus forcing me to start over again.

And there must be a ton of download content coming as that island as well as some other spots I've found are full of structures and whatnot that you can't yet interact with.

As for the first mission I didn't even know you had to land in a particular spot as I just dove straight in and pulled the ripcord at the last moment.

Re: Just Cause 2

I'm loving the game. For me it's GTA meets Red Faction. The game is unbelievably huge. I only rented but I'm guessing I'm going to be down for the full purchase this weekend.

Jump on it now while Amazon's still giving a $15 GC for it. Or go to Kmart by Saturday, I guess.

As far as Steam DRM, I'm fine with that. I was planning on linking my copy to Steam anyway, so that's no biggie to me at all.

This will be the first dual-platform game I've bought on the PC instead of the console version. Normally I much prefer the 360 to the PC for games, but using the 360 ontroller with this on the PC was a breeze. Besides, as visitors to the XBLA thread have seen, I could probably use a game I can still play while my wife watches crap like Property Virgins on the TV.
