You're a little over half-way there. There will come a point in the game where 1999 mode might become more difficult and might become unfun. That's what happened to me on hard. Just a heads up.

Is it the ghost mom part? I only have one achivement left(1999 mode without buying from 'Dollar Bill') and I want to know if that part is just BS. It was BS on hard.

Yeah, that part. Fuck that, well those, fights and that character just entirely. It, and she, was the worst part of the game.

The ultimate form of saying 'shut the fuck up'.

In other words, Adam Orth was told to shut the fuck up by Microsoft's higher-ups.

I feel like I'm looking to move in the opposite direction form most people here.

I'm 5'9"/10" and currently weighing in at about 142 (after a meal). Two months ago I was mid 130s. Currently my goal is to be high 140s / low 150s, with most of the gains coming from muscle. I'm already pretty lean, but I've been starting to feel like I'm too skinny, and have been getting similar comments form others. While I haven't been making time to go to a gym, but I've been exercising at home doing pushup/sit up sets a few times throughout the day. I'd also like to get back to taking bjj classes regularly which are a great workout.

I haven't been to well-informed on what to do in order to gain muscle when you're skinny. I would assume that exercises that emphases endurance would be a bad idea. So long runs probably wouldn't work. But sprints would. Also weight training with heavy weights with a low number of reps. And a lot of protein in your diet.

BUT, I would see if you could hook up with a trainer at a gym to see what he/she says first. It's a weird predicament your in for my brain though. Best of luck.

@hunkulese:

Well, the 'get the girl' thing is based around the belief of the male Lutece that a subject will create memories where there are none to better situate himself in a reality, time, or place that he doesn't belong. It plays off the quote at the start of the game (which I just read as I'm replaying it but I don't remember who said it).

As to how he forgot, I'm a little foggy on this. I was under the impression that either it was too dramatic for him so over those years he festered in his room he was able to repress the memory of his daughter one way or another. The other option is that, in order for him to enter the new reality and stay sane and form those new memories I mentioned above, the memory of his daughter had to be completely wiped out by the Luteces. I'm playing it again now so if it is more clear I'll let you know.

Obviously the greatest series ever created: The Wire.

Yeah. But that last season ending was a little rough. It was way, way, way too blatant for a show that more often then not tried to be subtle. I'm not saying they always succeeded in that. But at least they tried. There was nothing subtle or nuanced about season 5's ending.
