Is it possible to grapple and board a falling and pilot-less helicopter?
I've tried twice and just bounced off.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

According to the shizzle that Celdur just sent me... YES!

I can't get the blasted thing to start. Just pops a giant white screen and a little alert comes up saying it has stopped responding.


The demo, btw.

Edit: Apparently there's some issue with this on 64 bit OS's?

I've got Win7 64 bit. I dunno.
Just keep in mind that this one doesn't work on XP.

I'm too busy causing CHAOS.
I'm gonna love exploring, collecting, and wrecking.

But you know, that's pretty much the game.

I played some of the missions and it seemed to fix a few of the issues that I had with the demo; however, (and this may sound crazy) the game seems to suffer from being too open. You're allowed to go about any mission however you'd like and none of the missions appear to have any substantial scripting... so all the missions you end up doing blend together and become interchangeable. And that's not terribly captivating. And it's the same problem that plagues games like Just Cause, Mercenaries, Red Faction...

All decent games, but all unable to escape the bog of mediocrity.

Me and my friend were playing this on his xbox, we had ridiculous fun just using the hook to jump onto moving motorcycles. You can (somehow) jump right onto a motorcycle moving in the opposite direction from you. O.O

Yeah, I might get it, but probably not for the missions if they're like the ones in the demo. :/
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Well, the mission(s) of the first Just Cause's demo were different from the real game, so that might be the case here as well.

In other news, I assassinated a colonel (at a villa) by parachuting on the truck he was standing at, taking control and driving over him and his guards.

FUN

EDIT: Same colonel, but this time I drove a plane on him (The one you get from the race). I love this game.

Probably most people have figured this out, but in case not...cool trick thing.

At the spawn, y'know that building with all the vertical gas tanks? Aim your grappling hook at the top of it and you can hang from it. Shoot it once, it'll fly up. Shoot it a few more times, and sometimes it changes direction to more horizontal motion. (Works with all vert tanks, not just spawn ones. Though I don't know of any others.)
