If you have not downloaded the BioShock patch, then please do not. There has been nothing said of its purpose and it has caused the game and several friends to experience lag issues.
this patch has caused massive framerate issues and lagging. do not install until this has been addressed.
If you're experiencing lagging after the patch, my suggestion would be to clear the cache on the Xbox 360. This removes all downloaded game patches. Go to the System Blade and then Memory. Go to the Hard Drive and hit Y. Then press X, X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X, X. Choose Yes to perform maintenance.
DL the patch and played for about 30 min. Big brother kicked my a$$. Yes I mean big daddy. I should call them big hurt. I like it when the little sisters call them mister bubbles.
u mean big daddy
you know what i always though odd? they are called big daddies... however one of them is called a 'rosie' so wouldnt that be a big mommie.
dude i crack up when they call them mister bubbles...but then when i shoot the big daddy right after she freaks me out with that fast multi-voice gibberish....crazy game lol
OH NOs!11!!1eleven!!1 good thing i already beat the game... played for like a week straight, got 49/50 achievments, set it back in it's case till i feel like playing through on hard to get #50...
Sorry if I'm running after the squirrel, but having to beat the game on Hard JUST to get a 50 point achievement out of 1000 when you can get the rest by playing it once is retarded. Someone at Microsoft should have learned that giving an equal amount of achievement points to every goal in the game is idiotic. Even worse, giving the same amount of achievement points to every game is idiotic too! I can't imagine finishing "Ratatouille" being as rewarding as finishing "Ninja Gaiden 2". Someone at Microsoft needs to learn about Utility theory and preferences so they can correctly apply it to games. That way you don't have your typical overinflated scores from guys that rent every single game (including crappy licensed ones and every sports game out there) at blockbuster for so little. There should be a metric for every achievement in the game, and a metric for the overall difficulty of a game that determines the amount of achievement points a game should recieve. If the game has multiple difficulties, you get less points on the Easy level, and add the rest the more difficulty you add.
Looking at your avatar, I have a hard time believeing you have earned a single achievment. But I already know that, because you believe that every achievment has the same number of points. The first time I hacked something in the game, I got five points. The 100th time I hacked something, I got (I don't remember since I am at work) 20 points. When I beat the entire game without killing a single little sister, I got 200 points. So there is that whole metric thing you were looking for. Microsoft did a GOOD thing giving developers guidelines and requirements for the achievments. It makes everything relatively fair. While some games have a ridiculous amount of energy invested in their achievments, i.e. 10,000 kills in ranked games for Gears of War, others have stupid ones, like X-men and getting a 50 point achievment for completing all the other achievments. Fortunately, the X-men game is an anomaly, and the achievments are still addictive. Try to post about something you actually know about as opposed to trying to flamebait someone.
obviously you havnt read all of the achievements, you cant get 49/50 achievements playing it only once, hes saying he hasnt completed it on Hard, he also said he played it for a whole week! i know it doesnt take a week to complete it once.
I played for a while before I logged into Xbox Live, it prompted for the update, it ran like crap afterwards. There were more problems than framerate, I had it freeze momentarily a few times.
same here did the last 3rd of the game with it lagging all over
I've been playing all day long. Not a single problem here :D
me 2 i got the update and then the lag was there freezeing momentarily.
dangit, I can sadly confirm this. But it'll all be fixed very soon so not to worry. I play about an hour a day on this game and I'm loving it. I'm working through it in hard right now.
dont wait for a fix just do what the guy at the top said. "Go to the System Blade and then Memory. Go to the Hard Drive and hit Y. Then press X, X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X, X. Choose Yes to perform maintenance."
thanks mate, I hope that works nice pic
Shouldn't there be an option from the menu screen to do that?
playing through it again on hard too, luckily i had internet cable in my PC and never hooked it up so no d/l here. man that sucks tho, for me the game started hiccuping with the framerate after playing long time today ,did the clear cache code and it seems all good for now. must say tho, games other than Epic games that use the UE3 engine have not looked as good as Epics (bioshock looks amazing, but if you get technical with it Gears wins a little)and been a little to alot(midways ww2 shooter)buggy. wtfudge?
No problems! I even beat a Big Daddy w/o dying on the hard difficulty - thank you Mr. Grenade Launcher!
and other than not finding the button for the damn elevator to go find Cohen, no problems at all. Ran the update immediately before starting tonight as well.
big daddy sounds like a pimp name
Mister Bubbles is the gay pimp.
MY 360 DIED LASTNIGHT! YEAAAAAYYYYEEEE!!!! F*UUUUCK ME! - EDIT: Well, my original 3fixme died right before gears, and now again right before halo. and here I thought M$ liked me. it's not right for them to play with me like this. i wish them death.
