@DeathByWaffle: So, were you ever able to turn in that audiograph? Or did you just have to ignore it and do the story mission without his help?

I've been playing more or less non-lethally. When the weepers escaped in the beginning of the mission, I left them alone. The game doesn't tell me I've failed the mission until I've crossed a certain point in the path leading up to the distillery building - it just suddenly goes wrong, whether I sneak in or just waltz on through. .
I've been doing some Google searches and it seems I'm not alone in this. Mission 3. Was going to kill the Pendleton twins, but Slackjaw wants me to find out what happened to his gang member over at the scientist's house. I go in, put everyone to sleep, find the slain gang member and take the audiograph clue, and then I head back to the Distillery. However, halfway between entering the zone and actually getting to the building, the game tells me I've failed the mission, and Slackjaw tries to kill me. Anybody else have this problem, and if so, have you fixed it?
Yeah, I'm still playing. My Mercenary dude is up to Level 37 and I'm going to keep playing for at least a little while longer... probably up to when Mass Effect 3 comes out.
- Am I enjoying it? Yes.
- Is it the best game ever? No.
- Did it come out at the perfect time, when the release calendar was unbearably shitty and after I'd finished Skyrim? Without a doubt.
- Am I grateful that I can play it without having to play with other people? Yes indeed.
- Is it repetitive and tiresome? Certainly.
- Will I renew in 6 months? ...Maybe, if I decide to re-roll. Which I might; I wouldn't mind seeing the Jedi side. This mostly depends on if the 2012 console release schedule improves.
I'm still having fun, inasmuch as running around killing things for XP is fun. I think it's remarkably stable for a launch MMO, with great production values. I've enjoyed my character's story. I've certainly gotten my money's worth.
I've been in the beta since November; it's pointless. I bet in the Sony pitch meeting it sounded totally awesome, but in practice it's basically you running around looking at commercials with a bunch of other digital strangers. Maybe it's more practical to communicate with friends if you have a headset or a chatpad, but if you're a PS3 owner without those 2 tools (as I am), it's pretty useless. It also takes some time to load each area, so it's not a seamless experience. I'm curious to see where Sony is going to do with it, though; I'd certainly like it to be better than what it currently is.
