On the no-retry achievements - that just means you can't hit that "retry" button or skip them for the secondary achievement. Exit back to the underground and start the mission again and you can earn the no-retry achievement if you don't die. Honestly, only the final one is the real challenge, which is why it's zero-points (but has a cool concept art award for it!).

Also, if you're new to Phantom Dust, I'd suggest not reading that achievement list - there's some moderate spoilers in there!

Awesome! Thx for chiming in. Can't wait to play this today! Unfortunately I have some of the slowest Internet in the world, so I will have to wait about 3-4 hours after it comes out to play. That's if the game is around 8gb like everyone is saying. Do you by chance know if you can start playing early? Like with only 50% downloaded or something? :D

While I'm not a huge PD fan, it is nice to see this get out there. I know that a lot of work went into this, but based on that trailer and how much it shows the original Xbox startup, it almost feels like this is a prelude to OG Xbox back compat.......

I'm trying to be as pessimistic as possible about that being an E3 bombshell, but I gotta admit I'm starting to think (outside my normal tinfoil hat stuff) they may have actually done something.

I had no realistic expectation of that until i saw this trailer. I expected PD to be a oneoff. but the first 45-50 seconds of a 2 minute trailer heavily show the Xbox dash that many may not remember...


edit: I shouldnt say dash but startup.....

Yeah, and I've gone into more detail in the MS first party thread but between the oddness of this whole release, the involvement (and brilliance) of the team at Code Mystics, Phil Spencer's twitter avatar and how much sense it all makes to port these games, I have to agree.

Yea as technically it wouldn't be "THAT" difficult (still difficult) but getting the licenses for past games would be a huge undertaking. If they could get all the MS 1st party games at least, that would be awesome, and some major 3rd party ones. 100 games would suffice imo. The problem would be the achievements.

achievements can be done by just monitoring memory addresses/files, don't even need to touch the game itself

edit: if they were emulated.

Truth...i'm just thinking about the amount of work has to be done just to create them as OG Xbox ain't have 'em. I doubt many pubs would want to go through that trouble, but they may...we'll see.

It's so weird when a trailer is using music you have on your phone... It's something from Juno Reactor, but I've got too much music from them to sift through.

I feel you with the slow Internet. That's why I need this to go up soon. I still won't be able to play for probly 4 hours after it goes up. It would be awesome if it lets you play after 50% is downloaded or something...
Remember when Xbox One and PS4 were announced and they said that games would be able to be played while you download/install them? I can only remember a few games that actually let you do that. Most of them let you start up the main menu and then just come up with "game is still installing." lol

Yeah it's a bit of a shame it wasn't implimented that commonly (or like you said not it mostly only taking you to the menu anyway)

This is why I love pre-loads aswell, don't have to worry and can download it in advance so when it unlocks it's ready to go.

Komit also shows up as part of a mix inThe Matrix Reloaded. So, there you go. More impatient trivia.

That's normal. It's how they are defined in the api. Durable versus Consumable

Well, the opposite of durable would be consumable, so maybe they're planning on splitting the DLC store section between permanent unlocks/new content, and consumables, and this is just part of that change leaking out early?

I (or more likely, someone faster) was planning on probably just making a new thread upon it being available that mentions that its free and includes links to the store, the free DLC, and here to the OT.

Well, I guess it's technically correct.. been like that for months. Such a weird word to use to indicate downloadable content, especially when 360 content uses more clear words on the same site.

Yeah, I just saw that post about it being part of the API that's just showing in a place it probably shouldn't.

Wish they actually would split DLC between permanent stuff and consumables in the store, though. Would make browsing stuff much easier for some games that have a bunch of both types.
