I didn't catch the whole thing, but I highly recommend checking it out based on what I did see. Kevin's cameo was great.

@bbalpert: Its Andi Layne shes one of the few in the credits

Oh, duh, that makes sense. It says the name right there in the thumbnail, too. I guess I just assumed that it was one of several names getting shown over that video in the credits.

@recspec: Who's that lady in the Cena outfit in the thumbnail? I saw Brandon Stroud post a picture of her on twitter yesterday and I initially thought it was Hannah Hart. I don't think she has anything to do with wrestling, though (but maybe I'm wrong, who knows?)

Apparently it's been fixed with a patch that just came out (and I guess it happened in chapter 3, not chapter 2, according to the patch notes)

I don't know what it specifically means, but something I thought was a nice touch (but didn't notice until the 4th instance of it) was that the "bosses" in the last level all seem to be based on the Fans' masks. You have to fight a zebra, a bear, a tiger, and a two headed swan. I didn't notice the pattern until the swan, where one head only tried to bite you and the other stayed back shooting fireballs or whatever at you.

And now that I think about it, I think the Russian(?) mob boss's different abilities are all the same as the Fans' as well (Dodge roll, killer punches, and dual guns. No Ash/Alex equivalent though).

One other detail I thought was neat, if I understand it correctly, is that when Pardo is leaving the building where the Fans got smoked, there's a big bloody mess on the ground next to the front door. Am I correct in assuming this is the body of the mob boss guy you play as in the last level?

*I just realized after typing this out that most of it has already been mentioned. Oh well.

That was just what I needed. I was able to hide in a corner next to the ammo crate and

1) Shoot to lure guys over so I could stab them

2) Use the tons of windows to my advantage by shooting dudes from all the way across the level

It still wasn't a very fun level, but at least I don't need to play through it again (I hope).

Sniper rifle made that level a breeze. You can just sit back and pick off everyone before they get close enough to charge you.

That's what I had been using, but even when trying to be careful about ammo, I still got to what I assume (or hope) is the last section of the level with only 3 bullets left. Other than the 1 crate that gives you a bountiful 4 bullets, is there some other way to get more ammo that I'm missing?

There's an ammo crate on each level after the first (or at least I couldn't find a crate on the first level). You can camp out at each one and refill whenever you run out of ammo.

I have no idea why you can only get more ammo once you're completely empty.

Wait, so if you get more ammo and then use up THOSE bullets, you can go back and get more? I had assumed it was a one time thing! That should definitely help (even if it only gives you 4 bullets at a time)

For the most part, this game has been the good kind of hard. It's been "you died because you fucked up" hard. But I've been banging my head against level 16 ("Casualties", where you assault the power plant) and it's really deflating my enthusiasm about the game.

There are just too many enemies, too little ammo, and too many windows/open areas to get shot from offscreen. Does anyone have some sort of tips on how to tackle this stupid, stupid stage?
