Heads up guys, I'm going to be recording the first episode of the Just Cause 2 podcast over the next few days now that our podcast room is all sorted (http://twitter.com/mycoldman/status/3579384501), and I just wondered if you had any questions for the team; myself or Avalanche?

I can't promise we'll answer everything, but we'll certainly do our best. If you've any questions, post 'em below.

I would like a full list of everything that the grappling hook can do. The hook seems to be what will keep me entertained for hours. lol Only semi-demanding.

Can you shed some light on the Black Market and weapon unlocks?

More specifically,
How will the weapon upgrade system work? Will we be able to upgrade our weapons with the collect items?

Thanks!

Will there be different outfits or parachutes to be unlocked? Also, will there be cheats and easter eggs?

i really liked parasailling from cars, boats, planes... can we still do that. In the preview videos it looks like when you grapple something you fling towards it. I hope that is an optional button press. I want to be able to grapple, than unwined and reel in. Like i saw in the preview video that one of the stunt moves on a helicopter you can hang from the bottom with the Grapple Hook. That would be sweet to unreel and to get closer to enemies. Also if you grapple a car and unreel it so the car can drive away, then shoot the dual hook to the ground and watch it flip in the distance!!

^ Yea the dual hook could be way cooler if we could adjust the length of it. If that isn;t in the game i may develop a studder. puh- puh- puh- please don't do that to me :)

My questions:

- What is the coolest moment you had in the game?

- How will the unlock system exactly work, and what can we upgrade? (weapons, vehicles, rico himself?)

- Any multiplayer info, or just a word: we are (not) working om it?

- How long will the story be (without sidemissions?)

That's it for now :P

Keep up the good work out there ;)

my question, what kind of variety can we expect from the side missions this time?

I would love to know a little more about the following:
- The cities and what sort of things they contain
- Are there any private huts etc where I can stash my goodies (guns, gadgets...)
- Once the game is over how will the game continue to be played?
- Can I customise any weapons ?
- There was a mention previously that we will be able to go 'inside'. Please elaborate e.g. buildings, caves, tunnels

thanks

that’s all for now ...

hy devs!

Can you go higher in the air in JC2 than you could in JC1?
How long does it take u free falling from the highest possible altitude in the game?
Can u actually use/get on the cable railway on the mountains as seen in the panao trailer?
i have heard that the story missions will be more diverse this time around. how diverse will they be? Can you tell me a little bit about how they vary as you progress?

I would be pleased if you replied quickly thanksss!!

As I'm fairly certain that this game is going to meet most of my expectations I'm just wondering about the mention of a flyable Boeing 747 I heard about a while back. Is this true? That would be amazing.

And maybe the Stirling STL-3 Octavio which was seen in screenshots for the first game and even featured in the game guide, will this be making a return?

What was the inspiration for Panau?
Is this game going to use motion capture?
Will the PC version have nVidia PhysX support? If so will this affect the PC version release date?
When can we hear more from Avalanches other up-coming game?
Is the PC version a port of the console version?
What are your expectations of the game?
What is like working with Eidos on JC2?
Will developers from Avalanche be posting on these forums?

I think we should ask more of aclarations about things we already know than anything they haven't shown already. Just my guess, there will be many unanswered questions.
And I received a full answer about the dual hook from mycoldman in the thread "I'm new, what I think...", check the last posts I you haven't cause there is some interesting info.

will the helicopter controls be more responsive...and easier to control?

marine(NL)
28th Aug 2009, 21:50
- Will we again see mountains through / above the sky?
Becouse that was beoutifull in JC1 when flying high in the sky...

- Any info on the Just Cause movie?

- Know it's early, but what kind of support are you planning after release?
JC never got a patch (PC) while it could use a few... Will we get DLC, or is that something you will decide after release?

That's it for now again ;)

Keep up the good work out there :thumb:

also what is the highest altitude you can reach in the game

Will the game utilize natal for the 360 version?

Will the PS3 version use the sixaxis for control or utilize the unnamed upcoming motion control?

Will there be any content/game enhancements by using the PSP in conjunction with the PS3?

Wow! Hey, if there is sixaxis or natal or whatever, just don't repeat the supreme failure of Lair and make it as just a control option.Never force us to use it. (I think you would never do such a thing). I have a ps3 and I've NEVER used the sixaxis.

You are missing out on teh tight controls and awesome games like Warhawk and Flower but you are right. Option not forced.

Ah, of course, when it's well done it's well done. I only mean if someone doesn't like motion controling and a game has it by force, then he/she stays away of the game itself, sadly. It's my particular case, I just preffer to play with classic controls.

Oh, is it a double post? If it is, I'm sorry, but the last one is from yesterday, I don't think it is double posting.:scratch: Stop rambling.

I just remembered, could you tell us if the autopilot is back? Can you leave a vehicle going on as you did in the first game with boats and planes? What about cars? I don't know if you can talk about these features yet.:hmm:
Can you answer something this far?

in preview videos when you dual hook two things together they seem to fly towards each other. why? it makes it look like the objects have no weight therefor unrealistic. though after watching this new 11min video it doesnt seem that bad

The Chaos system
The duel grappling hook (FTW!)
The black market

Wowowowowow! I almost forgot! :eek::eek::eek:
I NEED to know if we can kill innocent people. Plain question.
I suppose the answer is yes but anyway, I could not stand another bunch of immortal civilians.
EA be CURSED FOREVER!!!

Yeeeessss!!! That was really annoying.

And another question. Will we be able to play it stealthy? I know its not exactly JC style, but its always nice to have the option. Mercs 2 said we would, but the draw distance was horrible for sniping and the enemies saw me even when I was behind a GIANT bolder shooting with a supposedly silenced MP5. So can we be stealthy if we want? Like with silenced weapons?

- Can you Fly the Jets?
- Can you Swim underwater - if so, can there be sharks that attack if you're too injured?
- Would love a Submarine and Underwater Missions
- Will there be any Co-Op or Multiplayer?
- Will there be DLC in the Future (ie, new vehicles, weapons)?
- Any Snow Mobiles for the Snowy Mts?

Ya, hopefully it's like the rfg style of stealth. Pretty realistic and if the enemies see a body, they are alerted but don't know where you are. That would be perfect

Hey mycoldman, (I see you around, hehe) can you tell us something to make the long wait more "endurable"? Anything, maybe when will the podcast come out? Or answer some simple questions (cof-immortal-civilians-cof) or anything? Please?

The podcast should be up on the site next week. Looks like I'll be recording today.

And yes, you can kill civillians - whether that's shooting them in the face, dragging them behind your car, dropping them from helicopters, or driving buses straight into them however, is totally up to you.

Ahhh, now I can rest. Thank you man! It's not like I'm SOOO sadistic, (well, I guess I am) but believe me, dropping nukes over cities and watch people get up like zombies was thraumatic. Again, you rock, much.:) And I can't wait for the podcast!

3rd Sep 2009, 17:08
Edit:


I'm pretty curious about the hook controls. Can you tell us something about plane controls? As seen in the videos (specially the last leaked dessert video) We have a clear idea about tanks(cars should be the same with less functions) and helicopter controls, but what about planes? Can you tell us something about their control? Specially the Harrier. Does it feature true VTOL capabilities? Controls? Something you can tell oh great informant Mycoldman? :D

Quoting myself to a more convenient place :nut:

No, they're side-missions. You create chaos to unlock story missions. And the story is to hunt down Sheldon.

Right. I have it on good authority, that the podcast will be going up on the website this Friday at 2pm GMT.

Sadly, due to PR and all sorts of other marketing nonsense (that I'm not involved with) I can't change that, it's not my call. But there you have it, a time and a day to get excited for.

I may have a few other bits for you between now and then too though.

Dont get excited yet. The server will crash friday mornin and you might end up murdering someone. we don't want someones blood on our hands unless its the guy who said "here's an idea lets put a red flash on everything for targeting purposes of course". I just noticed something. its possible that the red flash is sabotage from EA. Damnit Ea screw up your own games not this one.
