This Just Cause 2 Stunt Was Worth $10,000

Kotaku writes: "All Daniel Steinberg of Saint Louis Park, Minnesota, had to do to win $10,000 from Square Enix was fly a jet plane through a casino.

Steinberg is the winner of the Square Enix Just Cause 2 Stunt Challenge, beating out several solid competitors with his precision flying. It's not the most impressive Just Cause 2 stunt visually, but the skill it took making the plane fit through those windows was enough to impress the hell out of the contest's judging, and that's what counts." (Just Cause 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

He did this video using PC and Xbox? looks like it from the controls haha

Most unimpressive video ive ever seen tbh
TheIneffableBob  +   1660d ago
Some people use a 360 controller for flying planes and helicopters (because the analogs are more similar to a flight stick) and then switch over to keyboard and mouse for on-foot action. I did the same in GTA4.

@ heartnet =>your a fanboy! the worst type aswell, Do not get jelous just say well done or be happy when people do or have better than you.

No, it requires hella lot of skill.
The stunt may not be visually appealing, but definitely the best skill-based stunt I've seen.
Flying a plane is bitch in JC2.
Man, that was effen epic.
not only did he fly through the casino, BUT HE ALSO, flew beneath 2 bridges (and one upside down)

Crazy mofo

Disagree, I've seen people fly a plane, and parachoot out of it, and land on another plane...
MaxOpower  +   1660d ago
well that was disappointing...

Great to see that I'm not the only one feeling that way.

Made me think of this
GTA:SA Impossible Hydra Stunts:

GTA SA flying was much harder than in Just Cause 2...

I mean this is pretty easy and if you fail you just repeat it 2-3-4-5-20 times and you will get it right.

Why did they pay him so much for so little?
Will they give me 10k if I do the same thing and send it to them?
Soldierone  +   1659d ago
@Cyrus, thats what I'm thinking. This may have been "hard" but its not like it couldn't be mastered with a few tries.

It'd been more epic if he was creative. Jump off one plane onto another, take that plane through the casino, dive down under the bridge, do some trick again, and go upside down the other, then have a grand finale finish. That way his "complicated" gameplay actually looks complicated.
rroded  +   1660d ago
cool hell ya
for 10 grand tho

damn got ta buy the game now jus ta see if i can lol

so many games i havnt even finished yet... meh whats one more

Stunt looks lame, i've seen better on Just cause 2, just flying through a window?
xX TriiCKy Xx  +   1660d ago
The hell do you mean, "just flying through a window?" That shit took skill. I want to see you do it in JC2.
Heartnet  +   1660d ago
its not a stunt
flying through a window? this could have just took numerous tries lol.. to make a stunt worth 10 grand u want some fluky shit going on lol not oh he flew through a window.. wow? no
despair  +   1660d ago
I agree with Heartnet, it just takes a little practice and I'm sure its not insanely hard to do, although he had to come up with the idea and perform it so its still a great feat. I'd like to see some of his competition though as I find it hard to believe that this one was the best of the lot.
Kingdom Come  +   1660d ago
Why do I find myself Incedibly...
Cyrus365  +   1660d ago
Agreed I felt the same way...
Kingdom Come  +   1660d ago
I was just expecting something...
Extraordinary. I mean Jesus, if that's worthy of $10,000... Jesus.
AllroundGamer  +   1660d ago
Kingdom Come
as you probably know Square Enix is making the best games nowadays and therefor have lot of money to throw at people ;)


(upcoming news - Square Enix goes bankrupt)
despair  +   1660d ago
or scary news, Activision and Square Enix merger....
Kingdom Come  +   1660d ago
@ Despair
If Kotick got his hands on Square Enix, Final Fantasy XVIII would be out by the end of next year *Shudders*
skynidas  +   1660d ago
That was lame as hell... With enought practice almost everyone can do that.

lars2thev  +   1660d ago
This looks pretty easy to me with all the opportunities you got with Just Cause 2. Is it possible to win this ammount of money by scoring a penalty with FIFA, that is even harder then this.

But congratulations man, don't waste it.
SKUD  +   1660d ago
Tax free?. Doubt it.
BannedForNineYears  +   1660d ago
Why does it say B to stunt jump and then at the end it says press space/Alt/ blah blah blah as if he's on a keyboard........Weird much?
LinuxGuru  +   1660d ago
Probably had a 360 controller hooked up for flight. Game was most likely played on PC.
HDgamer  +   1660d ago
I think he used a pc and he knows how to code lol. If this was actually done by the pc version.
Eiffel  +   1660d ago
720p, if he had used the recorder with the PS3 version, it wouldn't have exceeded 360p. Even if he had saved it to his PS3, then added to a USB device, it would have been just upscaled 360p.

So either capture card 360/PS3 or on screen capture PC.

At least we can confirm it wasn't the latter of the recorder.

It was recorded on a PC.
HDgamer  +   1659d ago
Was it done on the PC? That does leave the question of a scripted scene which is possible if he possess the skill. Even if he did that's still good to me.
NarooN  +   1659d ago
All gameplay was done on a PC. He just had a 360 controller hooked up for the flying.
Shield  +   1660d ago
That was pretty good, definitely NOT ten grand good. It's nothing anyone else couldn't do with some practice.

JC2 is on my top five most underrated games of this year. Which is too bad because it's such a great game.
MartinGlow  +   1660d ago
I did that so many times! Where's my 10 grand?!
xtremexx  +   1660d ago
ptf i should get 10,000 dollars for peeing straight into the toilet right?
SlaughterMeister  +   1660d ago
Seriously stupid.
I used to pull stunts more impressive than this is GTA: SA all the time.

I used to take the harrier and fly straight at that one huge building in Los Santos and then pull up at the last minute and fly straight up the wall, then loop and fly right over top. It was easy.
ChronoJoe  +   1660d ago
I like my stunt
Won my clans contest with it. While back. :P


I love the ending, water saved my ass. Put out the fires that were about to cause my car to explode :D

TheMutator  +   1660d ago
10,000 for that crap
ambientFLIER  +   1660d ago
It would have been great to have another player inside by the window to see the plane and broken glass streak by.
jurahsik  +   1660d ago
what a shitty stunt.
gypsygib  +   1660d ago
That stunt should be worth a 50 GP achievement not 10 grand.
smithdown  +   1660d ago
Y'all are crazy
That window is about two inches wider than that plane, approaching it at 300mph, a difficult to fly plane, and bearing in mind planes in JC2 explode at literally the slightest touch. And you are still not impressed?! Some people... Fair play to the guy, took guts and skill.
MiloGarret  +   1659d ago
Guts? Really? I can agree about the skill because I seriously doubt this is as easy as the morons commentating here seem to think it is... but guts?

He wasn't actually in the plane, you know that right? It was this fictional videogame character which you play as in JC2. I think his name is Rico. In no way or shape is Rico's health tied to the players real-world health.
ChronoJoe  +   1659d ago
"Took guts"

It's a video game you fool.
smithdown  +   1659d ago
Duh, I know that numbnuts. I meant guts as in commitment. He flew at it full throttle and didn't hesitate or flinch, from what I could tell.
ChronoJoe  +   1658d ago
You find yourself flinching from video games? Interesting.
Fel08  +   1659d ago
And he got 10,000 bucks for this? Way to go SE
DeathGazer  +   1659d ago
That video was badass.

JC2 is such a great game.
DORMIN  +   1659d ago

Raoh  +   1659d ago
good stuff, i wonder how many times he made that attempt
GiantJedi  +   1659d ago
I think he was hoping that thing behind him was gonna blow up lol
Voyevoda  +   1659d ago
Read this the other day @ g4tv.com Congrats' but It didn't look impressive to me either.
TheNocturnus  +   1659d ago
Please... really?
Lykon  +   1659d ago
best game of the year by far....not very exciting video, but great game. pulls its pants and trousers down and does a big poo over boring generic shooters like mw2 all day long.
PopEmUp  +   1659d ago
what so hard about that? :S
