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?!?

I like how the Xbox One (not sure about the 360) has little details that just ass to the atmosphere of the guy such as when rockets are shot, you can't see the thing that shot them because of the smoke of the rocket or when the huge monster/alien (Bromak, I think) is on the street above you and when it walks dost comes trickling down where it steps.  I love these little things.  Not needed but definitely adds to the game.

Just beat the game.

I love all the Gears games and the Ultimate Edition is the only one I hadn't played so far. I had a mostly good time, but the lack of fit and finish was crazy for one of Microsoft's flagship franchises.

There wasn't very much time during my playthrough where Dom wasn't either in my way or running around like an idiot. You would think they would have programmed better friendly a.i. in a remake like this, but c'est la vie.

Hope y'all have a great weekend blasting away. I'm moving on to Fatal Frame II.

Ok, I'm on the train fighting what I believe is the end boss and I don't know how to beat him.  I get him to the point where the Kryll come from behind and I keep getting killed by them.  I thought maybe the person in the Helicopter would be shining a light for me to go in and I like up and the guy in the helicopter isn't.  I run to the other end of the train and sit the brightest spot and i still die.  I run around the whole train thinking I have to upload the data first and no luck.  How do I defeat the end guy?  I must have tried 50 times.  I don't know where to go when the Kryll come.

That's a pain. You must not be playing on easy. I was far away and in cover when the kryll swarmed in and they didn't kill me, but that may just be from playing on easy.

You do not have to do any tasks, only kill Rizz, so just focus on that. Maybe watch a youtube walkthrough for the difficulty level you're on?
