I'm really digging this game.  That Berserker part was hard but I appear to be stuck in Act II, Chapter 2.  I think there is a door I need to go through but I don't get prompted for a button push and pushing any of the buttons don't do anything.

Are you playing the ultimate edition? I had a similar issue in a later chapter where the map failed to load through a door I had to go through. This may not be the answer you want but I found that restarting the chapter fixed the issue.

Yeah, the Ultimate Edition.  I tried again and the X button didn't show up to open the door.  I loaded the last checkpoint and it showed up and I was able to go through the door after that.  Some weird glitch.  I'm at nightfall now and need to shoot the propane tanks to get to the gas station to pick up the truck.  I'm liking this game.  One thing I don't like is when you hit the d-pad to pick your weapon it doesn't show the name of the weapon so I don't know which weapon I'm picking.

I just did the vehicle sequence right after where you are, Shaggy.

Stubbes playing the whole series like a damn beast! Making me feel like a slacker only being in Act 2.

I'm enjoying the game and I also appreciate the liberal checkpoints, though that fuels my laziness and sometimes I only play for like twenty minutes. Not the game's fault, totally mine and the lack of focus these days.

I think the voice acting is really stiff and hasn't aged well, but the graphics on the Ultimate Edition look great.

Glad you guys are enjoying it too.

Made it to Act III, in the mines right now.  I love the mine car sequence.  Different and fun.  I can't put this game down.  I have to force myself to quit.

I like how your character "lumbers" when moving instead of being smooth.  It makes me feel immersed because Fenix has on heavy armor so his movement would be lumbered. The AI isn't bad, when it works. There are a lot of times I tell the group to regroup and I get a Negative comment and no reason why they can't move.  I go to where they are at and they are just standing there or crouched behind a wall.  One time I ended up going on ahead without the character, that was just standing there, to get the character back when the next checkpoint was hit.

I can definitely agree that the voice acting is a bit lack luster, but compared to the Gears of War, the ultimate edition looks and sounds so much better. Also since we're talking about the voice acting, I just want to say that it took me 6 games to realize Marcus Fenix is voiced by John DiMaggio. While it will never happen, I would love for the Marcus charter to just one time tell someone to "Bite his shinny metal ass".  laugh laugh laugh

As far as progress goes, I beat the forth game the other night and I'm already about half way through the fifth game. I only every played the original trilogy, so its been nice just to continue the story and seeing where it takes me.

I think the voice acting is fine.  I'm playing the Ultimate Edition on the One so maybe the voice acting is bad on the 360?

Well, I got to Act V last night and got to the theater and couldn't figure out how to shoot the theater wall down to kill the Seeder so I figured I would quit for the night.  I booted up my Xbox One to continue playing this morning and the game wouldn't start.  I restarted the console and the game started but now I was back at Act IV!  I wasn't happy.  I got back to just outside the theater so I'm still behind where I was last night but at least I'm back to Act V. Sad

Dude, I had a similar issue last night!

I was at the section in the house, trying to find the secret lab, and was stuck in a small room, able to do nothing. I reverted to the last checkpoint and it still wasn't working so I closed the game and rebooted the system and it kicked me all the way back to before I got into the house.

What gives, man?!?
