Anyone know if you still earn the mele alwards if you pickup a fire arm but don't shoot it?
Yes, this is possible because you have to at least carry a gun in the beginning of the game. Just tap the right bumper to switch the fire-arm from fire mode to melée mode, and you can swing any fire-arm like you can a pipe. I did my fair share of swinging pistols and shotguns, and it still gave me the GMMA. The shotguns break after like 4 or 5 whacks, but nothing beats the sledgehammer for getting a good clean swing into your opponent's face.

Maybe my Xbox 360 isnt connected to the internet ever think of that?
Yeah, I did, but when I checked it, it said that you'd been offline for 15 minutes, and Condemned
was (and still is) the ninth game down on your "played games" list. I'm not calling you out. It's just kinda neat to see if people have really done what they claim. That's all. Congratulations if you have it.

sucks, i cant afford a 360 right now but this game is so awesome to play, anybody know if itll be on regular xbox?
It won't. You might enjoy Call of Cthulhu
, though. Its mood is similar to Condemned
Edit: Although graphics don't influence my decision to purchase games, I really appreciate how they were used to depict violence in this game. The lighting is great, yadda, yadda, yadda, but the sheer brutality of some of those kills is just plain beautiful, and the sound effects really help to emphasize the violence. I was actually hoping for more
violence in this game. I would have loved for my character to be able to drive the fire axe through the top of an opponent's skull and have to kick the opponent away to free the axe.
It'd be great if R* makes another Manhunt
-ish type game. I know I'm not the only one that appreciates good videogame violence. This post has been edited by metaldevil: Jan 23 2006, 02:16 AM
