Also, in looking at that chart, can any of you tell me what the "V" column denotes?

It indicates whether a particular skill has a video showing you what it looks like.  If it doesn't have a dot in the column, it's just a still shot.

Well, that's an odd choice for "things we need to show in the chart"...

For a real treat, check out the Forums on that site.  Makes me very happy that Allen pulled me into this circle of Live players, rather than having to fend for myself...

I don't know why I never noticed this, considering it's on the back of the box, but the game supports custom soundtracks, too.

I've put 18 hours into this game and only completed 31 of 100 missions. I don't know if that includes online time, but I doubt it. The game is deep.

Yep, I've had my custom tracks going for quite some time. :)  The last I played, I think I was at about the 22 hr. mark with around 62 completed missions.

I'll be back around Monday night for some gaming.

I finally got around to reading my memory boxes. Some good stuff in there. Turns out you can heal teammates, which would have been nice to know previously. Stand over them and assign them to a skill button and when you press it, they revive at half-health.

There's some cool stat-tracking here, too. I've played for 22 hours, 22 minutes and 58 seconds. I've completed 41 missions. I had to attempt those missions 107 times! One mission - "Sky-Colored Paints" - took me 17 tries. I defeated 81 enemies and have attained 240 skills.

HeheheHAHAHAH!  I have created a new arsenal.

I shall not reveal how it works until we are in battle.  If you thought I was being a prick before, you ain't seen nothin' yet.

Holy crap!  I just started Chapter 4 {EDIT: Dave, you moron, you mean chapter 5}, and... wow, this game just really continues to impress me.  I thought story was its weak point up until now, but I've completely changed my mind.

Another fun time last night guys - this game never gets old!  It'll be great to get access to a few more levels.

I'm planning on more arsenal building/tweaking as well.  I'm completely into this aspect of PD.  Last night, my new arsenal didn't win any matches against Matt.  The great part of this is that I immediately went and changed three skills that I identified as not working well, or that I needed to add.  We'll play again and if it still doesn't perform well, I'll change a few more things that aren't working.

I picked this up, but won't have a chance to play it until I get back from vacation June 14.   Hopefully there's still some action this summer.

I think we'll be done playing by June 13th.  Got to get ready for that stream of blockbuster summer releases.

OK, I actually bought this last night.   Wish I had a portable xbox to take to europe.

Don't worry, you'll still be able to kick Allen's ass.

Well, I've completed about 85 missions and about 3 or 4 into Chapter 6.  3-school arsenal cases are now available at a cost of 10,000 credits.
