    This phone call thing just baffles me. I mean, some of the calls are fairly long... over a minute in some cases, iirc. So you guys would just sit there in silence for some random amount of time, not being able to do anything, and you assumed this was normal? What did you think was going on?

    I'm not saying you guys are dumb or anything, it just surprises me that someone could go through several bosses without ever knowing what the purpose of that whole section was for before each boss fight.
    I'm amazed by this too. Did you guys think that it was like the worst load times ever or something? :lol:

    Pretty much yeah, i mean my Wiimotes speakers have been turned off since about 5 minutes after i hooked the Wii up on launch day, truth be told it never even occurred to me that it could be playing audio over it, and not realizing it was turned off.

    Concerning battle for #1 Spoiler alert
    Does anyone else feel it was a copout to be saved by Shinobu? I mean it's cool and all but Travis basically lost that fight if not for the interference.

    Eh, it annoyed me at first; but at the end of her fight when Travis let her live I knew she would pop back up in the end. Except I thought she would kill him after hitting #1.

    This game needs a sequel. hopefully it will be a direct continuation of the story that opens up even more plot holes instead of closing them. Why? Because it's awesome, that's why.

    Since that guy came in "challenging" travis to a fight, doesn't that mean he already killed shinobu? (Since travis didn't kill her, he just moved past her in the ranks, right?)

    not necessarily..
    With the UAA, normally when you lose a match, it means you're dead. So maybe Shinobu quit the UAA. Or maybe she's thought to be dead since she lost the match with Travis by everyone else. I d'no.

    But
    At the begining, after you kill Death Metal, Silvia tells Travis that theres no way out. Plus, theres nothing to say that the opponent has to die in order to win the fight. I mean look at bad girl saying she won right when travis gave up (yea, for like 1/2 a second). Also, Death Metal admited he lost after his hands were chopped off (it could have been him just saying he was about to lose...), Travis just finished him.

    Right
    It doesn't exist per se, because it's a sham. A sham to make money. But it's still a sham that sets people up in ranks to fight each other; even if the purpose of that is to make Silvia more money.

    I doubt White Suit killed Shinobu. Probably she just stopped dealing with all of this UAA stuff; that's what I meant by "quit the UAA." Other people trying to work their way up the sham ranks probably assume that she's dead.

    Also, gunwarrior:
    Good point. But still, Shinobu probably just ran off and quit her dealings with the UAA. One way or another, she's not in the ranking any more. That's what I'm supposing.

    I'm guessing that it's like Travis said after the battle, that she'll go train for a few years.

    I'm about to playthrough again on Bitter to tide me over until Brawl, maybe I'll try and get the Infinate Battery for MK 3 if I ever have enough patience to do side jobs.

    The menial ones? Why bother? The assassination missions pay off a TON, unless you mean those too. I really loved the 100-person killathon by the bar down the street.

    Juts got the game, enjoying it thus far. This may have been answered already, but 101 pages are imposing to look through. When I was storming the mansion of the 10th ranked assassin, Travis pulled out a cell phone, put it to his ear, and nothing happened. I could move at a slow walk, but couldn't put the cellphone away, pull out my lightsaber, or anything. I assume he was having a conversation with someone, but I heard no dialogue. The same thing happened in the stadium of the 9th ranked assassin. Is this a bug, or is something wrong with my copy of the game?

    What you're seeing here is a bit with the Wiimote - if you turned the speaker on your controller off, you won't hear the phone call.

    Yeah, I had it off the first time it happened, and I wouldn't have known what the fuck was going on if I hadn't read about the phone calls in a review. And yeah, no home button usage during the call, lame. Playing it with subtitles now too.

    I don't mind the speaker in other games normally but I turned it off cause someone was sleeping or something while I was trying to get in some SMG. I think I usually have it turned down to one notch above silent.

    edit: also, playing the game super slowly, kind of getting trashed by Shinobu right now. I can whittle her down for a while but it takes forever and I end up dying. Is there a trick or do I just need to get better at combat?

    It's a bit of an endurance fight. She only has a few gaps in her offense and defense that let you safely attack and you also have to make sure you don't roll into a pillar dodging her attacks. When you get a chance to pull off a wrestling move, do it since it does much more damage than other stuff you do.

    Fights against female, melee proficient opponents tend to take a longer time in the game.

    I really took my time with the game, but I could have taken longer. I think it took me about 40 hours to beat it. It should have taken me about 30-35, but there were several instances of blowing money on clothes when I should have saved it for the entry fee.

    Holy shit, it only took me 15 hours. I didn't spend much time raising money or anything, just enough to pay for the next entry fee, and I didn't hunt down all the balls, but I still can't see how that would take another 25 hours.

    I thought I did a lot of dicking around in the game (finding all the balls and whatnot) but It still took me just over 15 hours to beat. Then again after like 5 free fight missions I kinda said 'fuck it' on those and moved on to the next money making opportunity.

    Question:

    Those of you who obtained everything in the game and did so in 15 hours, what difficulty were you playing on? Also, are you including obtaining all of the cards and stuff, or just the L-Balls and Treasures and Tshirts and Videos? Or only some of the above?


    Also, did anyone ever manage to beat the "Don't get hit once" missions? Any of them? I never got through one, but I did give up after trying like 3 times (in my defense)

    OK, cool. I don't know how long it took me to get through the game; but I imagine playing on Mild or Bitter would cause you to take longer.

    I didn't get every upgrade or item, not even close. I think I ended up around 10ish hours, give or take 2 hours.

    Yeah, I nearly beat that one. then I gave up on it. I was going to try again later with more upgrades, but decided against it.

    Get anything special for winning? Just a small wad of cash, huh?

    I don't remember how much but I recall it was small enough to make me think, "wow that was a shitty reward compared to how challenging it was." So I didn't bother with the rest of them.

    I should have attempted one on bitter, just to get my ass handed to me.

    Yeah, less than the normal assassination missions, at that.

    I've beaten the basketball one, the school one, and the parking garage one, thus far. Most of the others I can make it a decent amount in before getting hit. It's much easier when you can go off to one area to prevent people from surrounding you and/or all the people are already spawned (school).

    Also, I'm playing first time through, hardest difficulty available, and I've gotten everything so far, and unless the levels start getting longer, I might clock in at under 15 hours. I think that's because I went ahead and got everything while rank 8, though, so I benefited from the upgrades for longer.

    Finally got the game.
    Ranked 8th, loving it, but... Does anyone else feel serious amounts of eyestrain after an hour or two of this specific game? This never happens on the 360, or even with RE4:Wii... Something about the game seriously screws up my eyes... I think I try to overfocus on the minimap and the vague textures in the overworld...
    Which is weird since Killer7 never did anything like this to my eyes. :(

    It's a shame though, the game's rad otherwise.
