  1. You don't need feathers to make fire arrows (never paid much attention myself but I don't think you do). Cloth and oil so I suppose it's one of those you're missing. If you're really stuck then if you hold RB and LB (RT and LT?) at the loading screen and you'll get back-up saves. They might be a fair bit further back than where you are in the game. Best of luck.
  2. Right - thanks for that, I'll try and get used to it. I'm about to do the latest tomb, I've got to the "you're about to enter the tomb" bit so have gone away from Hitman right now. Trouble is I find that as soon as I start playing one game I very quickly lose the co-ordination on whatever I was playing before! So I keep trying to get Lara to do what Agent 47 does at the moment and - oddly - I start using herbs because I'm holding LB for no reason (it's the run button in Hitman). Then when I go back to Hitman I press R-stick for Eagle Vision instead of holding RB. Trials and tribulations . . .
  3. Ah, yes, I keep forgetting herbs, I barely used them until the final fight on "One With The Jungle" and don't recall using them at all when I went through on the easy setting; once again I completely avoided the normal setting, didn't use it in any of the last three games! How to you slow down time? Is it just by aiming? I can do it in Hitman with the right guns, pulling slightly on the trigger - is it like that?
  4. Hello. This is one Xbox achievement I don't have for "Shadow". Anyone got any tips on the best place for this, techniques, etc? I presume an early level and New Game Plus helps. Cheers!
  5. Found this sequence quite difficult, she seemed to fail on certain actions even though I was fairly sure I had it right. It's the two sequences, running through flood and landslide, that put me off "Deadly Obsession", I didn't want to get so frustrated that I'd end up on a YouTube clip.
  6. forgot to tag you with this, it's fine, I probably meant "sprint" not "run" away from the bear but I never tested just running to see if the bear can catch her
  7. sure, go ahead - it takes a little bit of practice but I was very very sad on a couple of run-throughs of "Rise" and spent 24+ hours just in the wilderness amassing XP to get the skills up. Kill the bear, get to the next camp or maybe past the ship in the ice, fast-travel back to the wilderness, shoot birds, deer, anything, eventually the things start re-spawning, the bear does after 10-20 fast-travels, you can collect the bear-skin until you can't carry any more but you have to kill it in the cave or it phases into the permanent carcass out in the "arena" and then you can't harvest the fur; the only down-side of the shooting arrows and running away tactic is that you can't then harvest the arrows however the quiver in the arena area respawns on each fast-travel
  8. Did you get past the bear? Sorry, I might have been able to help more but didn't register the updated in "Rise". There's a useful technique with this bear if you don't have poison. You can creep down the passage, do a loaded shot at its head, hopefully get a second one off as it starts to run towards you; then run away as soon as that happens, out of the passage, to the right (from where you came in). Keep going towards the end, jump over the snowdrift maybe - the bear roars and goes back. Go back down again, repeat the arrow-shots, run away. It works fairly well as the bear never gets close enough to cause a problem. Totally unrealistic, even huge grizzly bears are much faster than humans but there we go . . .
  9. Interesting, that makes some sense. I noticed the things you can jump on to open doors in whichever level it was (forge?). I did have a vague recollection that there was some talk of co-op play at some point but could be completely wrong!
  10. For Xbox and I'd think PS is the same, the game saves automatically. The basic thing with changing save slot is that it puts the last automatic save in a new slot, it's not exactly a "save right here" thing - maybe that's even true with PC but I don't know. Basically you're okay until you accept the point-of-no-return mission, then you get put in a situation where you can do nothing, so just don't accept that mission or do a new save slot then go and talk to Etzli.
  11. Whenever I went back to the Tree of Life challenge tomb, the friendly locals re-spawned (Xbox). Otherwise it seems so. Wish the bloody piranhas would disappear, though!
  12. What they wrote! :O) I only went through it once but are you sure about not being able to go back? There are a few places to cross over between the sides, I was a bit stumped by the platform that I think you mean (it hangs down, right?). Anyway, hope the back-up save reload thing works if not.
  13. AC Odyssey, any good? I did AC, AC2, Brotherhood, Revelations and Syndicate. Syndicate I liked; bit grindy in terms of things to collect. Annoying social glitch problem, their servers are rubbish so I ended up with a 120-plus day support ticket where they didn't answer, didn't answer, didn't answer - then sent a code for AC Origins only it was AC Odyssey when I redeemed it. Anyway - is Odyssey any good? Any comment on play relative to Syndicate? Have they fixed the often-bizarre automatic running thing (you know, hold the button, jump over obstacles to chase whoever then for some reason you decide to climb a building to your right rather than jump through the far-more-obvious window in front)?
  14. Can't say as I've been to the range ever but if there's a big-money franchise like this with some vague semblance of realism to it then if what you indicate is correct, that the shotguns don't compare with reality, someone didn't do their research properly. It's still quite fun, though, and I spend time trying to be stealthy. Quite difficult with Yaaxil, though, given they invariably know you're there and attack like lunatics! Actually that might have been an interesting thing; maybe these Yaaxil are, well, hard and all that, attuned to living underground, but some level where Lara could use stealth against them, stealth-killing but it suddenly gets rather more difficult if they find her, well, that could be fun.
