This isnt the original topic, the original one is very old. However the story is the same, its about GTA SA.

I'm so glad I left GameFAQs. But I don't understand, is the horrible grammar the point of it? Like some kind of strange avant-guard poem?

Ok heres an actual rant, ACR being priced higher than DLC. Come on I tried to trick myself into thinking its a great game but once you beat it there is very little incentive to replay this crap. If you pay attention to the actual missions they are so friggen easy, they require barely any thought and it feels like the game is holding your hand throughout the entire mission, constantly telling you where to fucking stand and where you should go.

Hell you even have eagle sense to help you with locating your targets in green areas. Sometimes I feel myself just staring at the minimap for 70% of the mission while I breeze through the game. The actual templar dens are a mess compared to brotherhood, unless you plan everything out perfectly the result is probably you stumbling into a warzone and either killing the guy in a fight or chasing after him for a messy chase kill.

I cant believe they had the balls to bring back stalking missions, there is NOTHING entertaining about them its like a chore. The only thing challenging about them is keeping your mind composed so youd ont get bored and rush out and do soemthing stupid.

Whats more people have the balls to say AC1 was worse due to it being repetitive. I cant begin to count how many times I have done recruit missions in this game ( maybe start at 1?)

Only 2 real side missions, the theif and mercenaries, and the rest of the story missions in this game actually feel like side missions.

One thing that I found interesting about ACR when I was replaying it is the fact that turning on Eagle Sense shows a big blue glowing pillar in the direction of your next Objective or Main Memory.

I played with all HUD Elements completely off and just followed those pillars. A few times it didn't work so well so I had to open my regular map with Select/Back and highlight the place where I wanted to go with a Custom Marker. THEN Eagle Sense would definitely mark it as a giant blue pillar.

They should have had this in the other AC games, in my opinion. It would make it much easier to play HUD-less.

Wait, so this shows up even when you aren't replaying missions!? I might just play without the HUD from now on.

Also, if you highlight a den that is under attack on your map, will the blue pillar appear there? In other words, does it appear on whichever icon you highlight? that would be awesome.

I'm pretty sure it appears on whatever icon you highlight/as long as you have a Custom Marker on the Map, the blue pillar should appear.

Just tried it out, thanks heaps man. I have recently been planning on replaying the entire series without the HUD and just slowly exploring the game, getting all collectables without using any maps and trying to play the game without being seen or disturbing the crowd, just taking it slow.

I expect this marathon will take months so il probably just play like an hour a day, this will make ACR much easier though. AC2 is manageable without the HUD, but ACB is a pain because districts open up way too fast, its hard to learn them.

No problem! I was really happy when I discovered it, feels good to help someone else out as well. Good luck to you with your HUD-less runs, I was thinking of trying that as well. It's gonna be really hard, especially AC1 and ACB.

I find AC1 isnt so bad because you only have to do 3 investigations max, I dont really see the need to go for 100%. My goal is to do one district every 3 days to spread it out.

Yes and yes. I just backed up my save game from HDD to Mem Unit. It also gave me the option to copy the save game to the cloud. When I tried to "configure" my cloud device it said this feature is only available to Xbox LIVE Gold members.

At first, they tell me I've got a programming test today.
After getting home, I find out I need some type of stupid bullshit activation code to enable my new debit card, even though you should be able to do that via just using the god damn thing.
While looking for that piece of shit letter that the activation code was in (I couldn't find it), I get a call from my driving instructor: "Where are you?" I forgot.
GOD SHITFUCKING DAMMIT >.<

What a wonderful driving lesson.

My instructor started feeling sick and then nearly passed out; luckily I was doing a reverse round a corner at the time so I didn't crash or anything. I had to drive to a pub so he could use the toilet there and then back home after he'd been sick and 'felt much better' (he certainly didn't look any better). I was absolutely shitting it throughout the whole ordeal and at one point thought I was going to have to call an ambulance.

To top it all off, I would have been home before it happened but I swapped lessons with someone who has 1.5 hour lessons so it still said that next to my name and he thought I'd booked an extra half hour. I think he might want me to pay for it as well, despite most of the extra half hour (that I didn't even want) involving him being sick...

Why the kid? Find the girl, retrieve your book, explain to her that it's yours and she should have asked. Go back to the kid that you lent it to and tell him to be more careful with things that don't belong to him. Teach both of them a lesson, politely. You are a winner.

In situations like these I start hammering on the person who borrowed the item from me. It wasn't theirs to lend and it's not my job to go track it down.

He was supposed to return it on Wednesday. If he can't find it and return it by Friday then he lost it and owes you a new one. Mention it to him every day and each time increase the intensity of your lecture on what it means to be a responsible friend.

Who else remembers when games were fun and you could put in a cheat code or sequence of buttons to alter some part of the game? I've gotten used to not seeing this around anymore, but I have been playing The Force Unleashed 2 and found out there was a cheat code option for additional costumes and lightsaber effects. After looking up some of the codes and inputting them, I had a blast replaying the levels as other characters (some only in the story for 5 seconds total) and altering my lightsaber's colors mid-fight if I felt like it.

I remember in the old PS1 Spider-Man game, they had codes for everything. New costumes, little scenes during levels (if you knew where to look), and new types of webbing to play with. You rarely see this anymore. I think if gaming companies want more people to buy more of their product, they should provide replayability options in this form.

Honestly, who wants to pay for more of an already expensive game? Give us those options, but only if they're unfinished add-ons they couldn't fit into the final game. Game developers should have fun with their game as much as the players do. Now it just seems like another 9 to 5 job to the animators and directors. Give us secrets to look for and play with.

GTA is still one of the only ones that has them. That's one of the reasons why a lot of people keep playing it.

ACB had them, but they weren't worth it. I personally never used them and they weren't welcomed by the community enough to get into ACR. And those weren't the fun cheats. These were rewards for 100% syncing missions and were only available in replays.

So today was the first day back to school from christmas break. and of course, all the HERPA DERPS were bragging about what they got. and it amazes me on what type of gifts they want. i mean common for our age groups in all but if too expensive. you get mad at your parent for not getting that item!.

I didn't get much for christmas, and im not jealous or anything. i got stuff for my xbox and some calogne. and im happy. all i needed was to spend time with my family, and draw.

health today, i just draw through that class. today since we are in the sex ed. lesson, a lady came in to talk with us. mostly about boring relationship bullsh*t. saying how you shouldn't have sex until married, blah blah blah. talking about the types of love....reaally stupid class...

Abstinence is bullshit. What would you do if you married and then went on, only to find out that you sexually don't match at all? Frustration, that's what.

I've learned that sex is a bonding experience like they say, but in order for a relationship to work, you have to be sexually compatible. I'm not saying become a whore, but figure out what you like and find someone that works with you.

A good course on sexual education should cover three ways to prevent sexually transmitted diseases: abstinence, condoms, and monogamy. Of the three abstinence works the best (I mean actual abstinence, not a "pledge" that will be broken.) So I can see where they would at least mention abstinence in a sex ed class. It sounds like EA's class is also covering condoms and monogamy. That's good.

The real danger is abstinence-only education. George W. Bush promised, "My administration will elevate abstinence education from an afterthought to an urgent goal." and funding for abstinence-only education tripled from $73 million a year in 2001 to $204 million in 2008. Statistically, teens who take an abstinence pledge are more likely to practice unsafe sex and wind up pregnant or with STDs. To misquote Einstein, "You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for sex."

You won't even feel the blade.
