B-Ball Deus EX Style

#1 Posted by DeanoXD (652 posts) -

I spent 15 mins trying to get this ball to go through the net i finally gave up and thought i would just do a vertical hail marry and well, i was glad i was recording at the time or no one would have believed it.

After 15 minutes, your reward was:

5G- Balls

Put this man on suicide watch.

I can't do it, I have the throw heavy shit aug, and it's making me throw the ball way too high :(

Dude, we spent way more time doing that in Deus Ex, System Shock 2 and Thief 1 WITHOUT achievements, so yeah, this man is pretty sane.

5G, its not the size that counts.    Huh huh huh....Balls.

I'm in the same boat as Laketown- strength aug makes me throw the ball a damn mile.

@thetenthdoctor: Just put some boxes next too the hoop , get on the boxes and let go of the ball by pressing x

Hahaha that is gorgeous. I played with that thing forever (not even knowing there was an achievement), at least 10 minutes or so. Couldn't get it to go in. Finally decided to be smarter than the video game and did what @left4doof suggested. Stacked up some boxes, climbed up, and "dunked" it.

Love this game.

@left4doof: Dammit, that's a fine idea. And I should have thought of it too, since I already used box stacking to jump a few fences already. Thanks.

haha, very cool, I want this game more and more.

I just put points into my feet to make me jump really high and got it that way. Not to mention that no fence is a match for my 9 foot vertical leap, aww yeah!

Dude... I totally tried doing this because I figured there'd be an achievement attached to it considering it's a reference to the first game. It looked like it went through and the 'chievment didn't pop so I stopped trying. I guess it just clipped through the net or something.

Is this in Detroit where you had to dispose of the two dealers for that snitch ass muthafucker?

#15 Posted by thetenthdoctor (303 posts) -

It's pretty cool. Most games present you with a gate and control panel to hack, and dammit you aren't getting through it until you find the password or upgrade your hacking. If you're playing Deus Ex though, there's hardly ever a time you're "stuck". If you've got a strength aug, just haul over a dumpster and vending machine and climb over that sucker. Problem solved. :D

Stack some barrels, drop ball in net, get achievement.

I do not like the hitching it does.

I knew how to do that. *Snug*

Yes sir. 
I was doing this mission last night and saw the basketball.  I thought to myself, "it'd be cool if I could pick that up."  I continued walking, assuming that I couldn't.
