  1. I just read on another post where the player liked the ability to change the lighting. I remember this was a big deal in early reviews, but I just thought it was part of the single player campaign having the lighting change depending on the time of day. After reading this gamer's post it jogged my memory about having different lighting (morning/afternoon/night) and weather conditions like rain. Is there an option to turn this on/off in the multiplayer modes, because it hasn't jumped out at me (although, I forgot to look for it)?
  2. I was SHOCKED at how short the game was. I played it on the hardest level and it only took 2.5 days of on and off playing to complete it. I loved the heck out of it, but when the credits started rolling I was like "W-T-F? That's it? No way!" The co-op multi player missions are making up for it though.
  3. Yes it is, but that psychology works different at different age groups. At 41 (in Jan) my time with my family and such is worth more than hundreds of hours with a game. If I were a teenager again or single or unemployed with a ton of time on my hands I probably wouldn't think much of this. I've already been given the "stink-eye" and cold shoulder from the wife a few times due to all the time I've spent with this game so far. I would have prefered having the content "unlocked". I like the rank idea being tied to time played/experience instead of ranked games. That is your bragging rights. I'm sure with that will come gamer points which again gives you bragging rights with your buddies. Again, this is different than locked content. If I don't play much and all my buddies are Sergeants or Captains or whatever and I'm in the lobby with my crummy little Private badge then so be it. But, having to run around with simple camo just because I have a different priority just doesn't seem right. I paid the same amount for the game that you did. I'd like to outfit my character as much as anyone else. At least offer an unlock patch in the Marketplace. I know many don't like this, because its more money, but my time is worth that to me. EA did it with the last Tiger Woods golf. I played the hell out of that game in '06 and unlocked everything. I did this, because I enjoy playing the game not because I felt a challenge to unlock content, so when the new one ('07) came out it was more like "been there, done that". I grabbed the unlock patch off marketplace and I was enjoying the ENTIRE game from day one. I still played it as much as I would have if the content was still locked, but I enjoyed it more, because I now had all the clubs, clothing, courses and all that available to me. It was worth it and it left the game locked for those who wanted the challenge of unlocking the content. My bragging rights are my gamer points for levels of completion in the game and owning my buddies when we play.
  4. Ok, my bad too on the % of locked guns. Sure felt like 50%! I know I'm not wrong with the rest of the locked content. I have too played the game quite a bit. I unlocked my Captain rank last night. I'm not trying to debate this. I agree that Rainbow and GRAW are two different sides of a coin and that is why I said "Don't Rainbow Six GRAW2". You all make the same point about the locked content. It gives you absolutely zero advantage, so WHY LOCK IT??? Want a badge of honor???? Then try using your military rank! Keep the rank system like it is, but DON'T TIE LOCKED CONTENT TO IT! I could give a rats azz if I stayed Private 2nd Class forever as long as I had all the content. Forcing me to play hundreds of hours to unlock content is just BS.
  5. My concerns were specific. I think the current cover system in Rainbow Multiplayer is flawed. I agree that it needs to be tweaked to something similar to that listed in the link I provided. There should be a risk to "peeking" out and you should NOT have "full" view around what your hiding behind. GRAW is a third person view, so I already expected a similar cover to that of Rainbow since it already existed in the single player version of GRAW, but hopefully not as flawed. I was just trying to make light of the concerns the Rainbow players had and hoped that the GRAW2 group would look at it for ideas. I like the PEC character generator and hope it's in GRAW2. What I don't like about Rainbow is that 90% off all the head gear doesn't work with a custom character face (vision camera option). You can't even wear the tank top or t-shirt. Aside from a basic set a fatigues EVERYTHING else is LOCKED content. I haven't counted them all, but I'd guess 50% of the guns are locked too. The more "online" games you play and experience points you get for playing and the more you unlock. Now this is NOT "ranked" games. They CAN be ranked, but it's not a must. As you gain experience you gain rank (in the game) and unlock content. This is complete BS. How would you have felt if when you bought GRAW 50% of the guns were "locked" and couldn't be used until you played it 8 hours a for 4 or 5 weeks and even then they weren't all unlocked???? I thought and still feel that this was done to get more player time on Xbox Live. I thought that there was some kind of "pay for play" thing going on. Kinda like what websites do for hits on a site. UBI gets paid $$$$ for X number of hours their games are played or something like that. Then I found this post on the Rainbow site. Please read the whole thing. Massive I'm not terribly concerned with what others are saying about this software, but it somewhat confirms my suspicions as to why they had so much locked content and why you'd have to spend hundreds of hours playing to unlock content that should have been part of the game already. Are they uploading static images to the game (like the AXE ad) and tracking how many players viewed the ad and for how long and then getting advertising $$$$??? I'd rather see a Coke ad or AXE ad than some generic crap , but I don't agree with being forced to play all of these hours to unlock content that should have been available just so they can make even more $$$$. This is what I meant by "Don't Rainbow Six Graw2"!
  6. Gears Of War is a 3rd person "shooter". SHOOTER being the key word. There really aren't any tactics applied. Not in the way GRAW or Rainbow would be used. This guy does a great job of explaining the problems. TPV Problem Here is his propsed fix. TPV FIX
  7. Uh, it wasn't in Multiplayer! I guess I should have clarified that. In Single Player story mode I could care less, but it shouldn't be in Multiplayer. You could not hug up against a wall in Multiplayer. You could only peek around the corner.
  8. Ubi's Rainbow Six Vegas Forum I know that they are two different games and they are being developed by two different divisions, but they are both coming from UBI. I'm not sure if the developers bother to lurk over on the Ubi Rainbow Six forum, but it's quite eye opening. Yes, there they have their share of unwarranted crying, but there are some very well described problems and concerns with that game. Is there any plan to use the "Cover" system or one like it for GRAW2? Is the PEC 2 custom character creator or something similar going to be available? Is there going to be A LOT of "locked" content like Rainbow Six Vegas????
  9. Check out these pics. I was playing GRAW and the drone went into one of it’s mindless swirl modes and wouldn’t respond. I finally got it to respond after a few attempts of calling it. I sat in a crouched position and waited for it. When I stood up I nearly hit my head on it. I sent it up ahead and it went through the rocks and traveled to it’s destination. When I approached it I saw this. Look how low it is!
  10. "WarlikeFlea" Is your Ghost627 or something else?
  11. I'm sorry, but your not making a lot of sense. What is the basis for your statement: "Too many people are not buying the present DLC. " ???? Based on what...gut feeling? Comments by the trolls here? EVERYONE I know that plays online has bought the DLC. EVERYONE! There isn't a room I've been in that didn't have it. PERIOD! You also state: "The current DLC divided the community in half and prevented many from playing with their friends." But, then go on to say: 1. Not everyone has Live to buy the DLC in the first place. 2. Those who do may not have the Gold membership to play online. If you don't have LIVE you weren't playing online anyway and therefor these players could not have been divided from any group, because they were never there to begin with. If you don't have a gold membership then again, you weren't online anyway. I think some of you guys just aren't happy unless you're complaining.
  12. Sorry....my crying towel is dirty right now or I'd offer it to you whining cry babies! $15???? I spend more than that on beer and condoms in a week. I can't say that this would be more enjoyable than the beer and condoms, but it will sure last longer!
  13. I agree whole heartedly with the more and bigger maps. I'd also like to see some Sniper perches in some areas. I rarely play a Marksman unless I'm with a bigger team, but I'm disappointed that there aren't any good Sniper spots. It would be nice to climb up a series of rocks or a ladder to a roof and get a great vantage point from above. Why have Marksmen without the occasional perch?
  14. Cool vid! I really liked seeing how someone else played the game. I learned a couple things. I think I got killed about a dozen times before I figured out my strategy. A few times the VIP got killed. He'd stand right out in plain view and got plugged. This is a cool mission, because the firefight is pretty intense and for some of my buddies here at work (watching the vid) they felt like they were really there.
  15. Got it! I'm not sure what I was doing wrong. Maybe I was too close to the vehicle. I've been able to strike all these vehicles from the tactical map and giving the command from the game screen. I really don't know what I was doing wrong before, but it's good to blow stuff up now!
  16. Some time ago I move my HD tv into another room and left my surround sound behind. My tv has some "BBE Surround" blah, blah, blah stuff which I "thought" sounded good. WELL, the other day I ran all the speaker wire into the wall and wall mounted all my front surrounds and stand mounted my rears, but didn't have time to hook it all up until today (playing too much GRAW) . WOW! What a night and day difference with amplified surround sound. If your NOT playing your 360 in surround sound then you need to fix that pronto. It's like playing your 360 on a NON HD tv. You are really missing out.
  17. Thanks! I'll give them another whirl. I know in SP mode when near a enemy vehicle and looking at it an icon appears at the bottom of the screen with an "explosion" type look and the "up arrow" indicated. When I press the "up arrow" my player says something like "Take the shot", but no one on my team does anything .
  18. I haven't played GR since the first one came out many moons ago. As a result I'm not a savy as many of you and these may (will) seem like "What a dork" questions, but try to be kind. I'm having difficulty blowing vehicles up in SP mode and weapon caches in co-op mission modes. I was able to get a small vehicle to blow up by shooting it, but that doesn't seem right. Dropped a grenade near some weapons caches and blew them up, but that didn't work on some others. In SP mode is there a way to direct my grenaider to blow up the vehicles? I know that if I choose the weapon with the grenade launcher I can do it, but if I have a team member who is capable and equipped for it I'd like to use them. Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?
  19. I'll 3rd the problem. My Panasonic 42" plasma in 1080i mode does it too. You can still see the outline of the hud and all the necessary info is in view. I'd almost say that I prefer it being out of the way.
  20. I'm curious to know if anyone else has had this issue or noticed it. I've lost all gun and explosion sounds part way through mission two. After work last night I completed all of mission one in SP. This morning I started mission two and everything was great until I got to the part where you rescue the 2nd VIP and then have to escort them through the city to safety. At the parking garage on the upper floor you get a drop of weapons and choose the launcher to destroy the tanks. I shot the tank, but there was no weapon sound and no explosion sound. Same thing with the second tank. After getting the VIP to safety you use the Cypher for the first time in level two. I can hear the truck pull away as we're dropped off and I can hear all other background sounds, but there is no gun fire sounds or explosions. I'm walking along and I'm seeing bullet strafes, but no sound. I shoot my gun and my teamates shoot there guns, but no gun sounds. You can hear the bullets "ping" and "piff" as your being shot at, but no gun shot sounds. All of mission one and the first two or three phases of mission two had gun and explosions.
  21. Cleary states 1080i on the box. ALL formats are supported.
  22. Just wondering if anyone has heard of any Xbox360 demos being released on Xbox Live? I haven't seen any and it's pretty late for a demo since the game is gonna drop next week, but I thought I'd ask.
  23. Whew, I hope your right! I was bummed, because I thought I might have to buy a new tv to play this game. The game looks THAT good.
  24. Does anyone know what HD resolutions GRAW will ship with? The only reseolution I've seen listed on display boxes is 720p. I've seen this on other games that ship with 480p, 720p and 1080i. My plasma will only do 480p and 1080i, so when I see ONLY 720p on the boxes it worries me that it won't display correctly on my tv. I called UBISOFT support and they didn't know and suggested I try some forums. Does anyone have this info? Thanks! Larry
