Don't forget this weekend is another public beta test of Just Cause 2 Multiplayer, which is probably why this went on sale :)

No problem. I loved the first one. Still have a huge backlog I have to get to when I have more time on my hands :)

Guttersnipe 02-02-2013 01:13 PM

Yep, I was bored so this was a nice Saturday addition..you know, just cause.

Anyway TU

Bought this game a while back and I just have to say, you will not be disappointed at this price. The story is "meh" and the dialogue is "meh" but flipping a Humvee 12 times off of a huge ramp while parachuting out at the last second before it crashes into a fiery explosion is absolutely insanely awesome.

ViperGuy 02-02-2013 01:44 PM

love this game

excellent game, excellent price.

i don't normally 'cheat' at games but i love doing this one in god mode with infinite ammo and no reloads. just running around blowing stuff up. cathartic. and stuff blows up real nice in this game.

Halewafa 02-02-2013 02:24 PM

Cool, thanks OP! First time buying from GMG, worked no problems. Repped

Thanks! First time buyer of GMG as well. Paid with paypal , game activates fine on steam.

lightfoot3b 02-02-2013 02:32 PM

Worth the cost for a GTA style game. I still visit for fun once and awhile.

Dh258 02-02-2013 02:53 PM

Great deal for this weekend! jc-mp.com is running a 48hr beta of the jc-mp mod, making Just Cause 2 into a massively multiplayer game where you can join factions in wars, race vehicles, and play in demolition derby. They intend on releasing it soon, but this is the first beta test in quite a while.

Best of all, this mod is free, and will forever be free.

Should I pick up Just Cause 1 to make this make sense or not? Also know anyone know any deals on the first 1?

t0ji 02-02-2013 03:12 PM

Repped, in 4 1!

Rumstocker 02-02-2013 03:33 PM

most reviews indicate just cause 1 is garbage. You should be fine with 2 only.

Game looks fun. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBoXuClkZIs

and massive. Unless you've got unlimited time, put your hours into JC 2.

Repped.

Picked up a copy myself.


*My first purchase with GMG was last week. Virtua Tennis 4 for $3. Used paypal. Seems like a great site for deals.

bigddybn 02-02-2013 04:07 PM

Fantastic game for a great price. No brainer.

movingincircles 02-02-2013 05:09 PM

I bought it after realizing I already owned it on Steam. #firstworldproblems

uh2 02-02-2013 05:14 PM

In for 1. I wasn't even looking to buy this game. Thanks.

EDIT: Well, Citi Mastercard refused to go through, and Paypal wouldn't authorize either. I guess I'm not getting this game.

Never ordered from GMG before, but for some reason Paypal and Citi don't like them. :(

konoplya 02-02-2013 05:34 PM

got this. thanks. my old hard copy vanished a while ago and i never finished the game.

Caeruleas 02-02-2013 05:37 PM

Got one. Thanks!

scooch 02-02-2013 05:49 PM

they should just give it away!

scheibler 02-02-2013 06:16 PM

In for 1 to ad to my steam backlog lol

CAN I HAS??? lol jk. I believe you can just get it refunded at GMG. I pre-orded Guild Wars 2 with them but they had that whole fiasco that didnt include the head start. I contacted them and had them refund me. I'm not 100% sure you can get a refund if they already mailed you the key though, worth a shot atleast. :bounce:

maxim730 02-02-2013 06:47 PM

Get Get Get this game! It is so much fun.I actually enjoyed it more than the Far Cry series...

JussaIrish 02-02-2013 07:00 PM

Everyone should buy this game, just 'cause.

xexx 02-02-2013 07:31 PM

Pirated this originally... good game, just bought it, Multiplayer looks like it could be cool

hm2 02-02-2013 08:28 PM

i bought this on steam a while back for around $5, well worth the money. this game is fun... it's basically GTA with grappling hooks and parachutes on a pacific island city. lots of fun.

iflabs 02-02-2013 08:34 PM

Get the HD cloud mod, so pretty. And then the infinite parachute rocket mod to zip across the map.

burticus 02-02-2013 08:41 PM

I got this and some DLC from a Steam sale for under 5 bucks a while back. It looks ok but I got bored with the lack of direction pretty quickly. That's a personal gaming deficiency for me though, I like a strong story with guiding force better than random sandbox. I cannot wrap my head around how multiplayer would work though.

But for this cheap why not.

JL6speed 02-02-2013 09:02 PM

Dammit. Middle of purchasing and site goes down.

smoka 02-02-2013 10:10 PM

Any difference between PC and console versions? Can anyone that played it on console comment on controls?

coronakid 02-02-2013 10:15 PM

Great game, great price. Get it. The only downside is that it does start to get a bit repetitive after a while. However, don't let this deter you.

mangodrink 02-02-2013 10:16 PM

Playing this now after having it in backlog for a few months. I'm 30 hours in and game says about 40% done, and I'm overall liking it a lot. It's great stress/monotony reliever played 2-3 hours at a time, but it quickly gets tiring if sessions get longer than that.

GAMEPLAY SPOILERS AHEAD:
My main tips to enjoying it: keep to 2-3 hour sessions, take in the sights from the air and from the ground, maybe even from the road or from the sea, trust that gunships, ziplining, and zipline-parachute-gliding will be your best friends whenever things slow down, and there's only as much action and mayhem as you start yourself. Pick a favorite approach to blowing things up/getting around or try something new, and trust that causing mayhem location-by-location will be enough structure to move you along per session.

Oh, and definitely learn to zipline-parachute-glide (special tip: if playing w/ gamepad, left stick forward makes you faster but to the ground, pulling back slows you down but gains altitude, and ziplining with parachute gives you some speed in combination with either). The closest I can describe the parachute-ziplining is like upside-down Spider-man web-slinging or Batman grappling, and it's amazing how much it lets you take in the terrain/scenery from a fresh point of view from swinging from above (and gunships let you tour the skies already).

You can zipline into the ground if you time it right and you won't take fall damage from any height, no parachute needed.

And a max-leveled machine gun in hipfire does a lot to make you feel like your favorite 80's war movie action hero if you do have to mix it up, and you'll eventually level up the enemies that ammo will be plentiful. I haven't racked up enough points to feel out the other 2-handed weapons though, and I just like the machine gun too much to try something else right now. (Submachine gun probably sucks though, and only go pistols if you like aimed headshots).

Bought vehicles are probably not worth the pause in the action to buy, since they tend to be destroyed quickly and easily replaced w/ a hijacked vehicle. Except maybe for the non-attack helicopter, since when maxed out is pretty darn zippy for touring/searching the map.

Try not to use fast travel unless you're going back to the last place you died or you're really strapped for play time, fast travel like and any pause menu (including looking at the big map and buying items) pretty much puts a dead stop to the action.

I haven't played console, but I can tell you there's no aim-assist playing w/ gamepad on PC (not too annoying), and you probably want to increase control stick sensitivity so you look-turn faster on foot, except it also affects vehicle aiming which is already more sensitive than on foot, so you have to find an acceptable balance.
