@SecondPersonShooter: Do you mean if you are standing on the edge of a ledge of a building and you hold RT and then press A you will drop down and hang off the edge becoming more difficult to see and putting you into a position to do a Y ledge takedown if somebody comes near?

Otherwise i'm not sure what you mean, this might be somethign new i missed.

********************SPOILERS AHEAD********************

@The_Laughing_Man: I think teh problem is the initial pacing. When you first start playing your overwhelmed with information and people can miss important things. I never did play the first game "Asylum" but watched an lets play.

Anyway, as i've continuted to play the interface pacing has slowed and i feel more comfortable with it. Initially the game is hectic.

********************FINALSPOILER WARNING********************

Also i was watching a LP of a person fighting the 3rd or 4th particularly physically intimidating boss and he didn't even know about the quick gadgets. Holding LT and hitting X to lay foam or Y to fire the claw. So this guy was actually slowly applying the foam to the to necessary components.

Clearly people are not integrating all the information to take full advantage of this game.

I've gone through over 10 % of the game and am still learning things that i actually had access to from the beginning of the game.

1 i didn't know i could run and jump kick or jump punch, though i did know about the slide.

2 i didn't know i could gears of war corner fire a batarang, this works really well at disarming approaching alerted gunmen from a covered position.

So i acquired this great gadget/feature ( whatever you wanna call it) and started using it to pretty good effect. You simply Hold LT to aim and then once the cross-hairs are covering an enemy you depress and HOLD the RB, that's right bumper button. Everything was working out great until a few moments later i tried using it and it simply doesn't work anymore. Whevever i try to fire it/throw it holding the RB releases the normal battarang and i give away my position to everybody making even experimenting with it dangerous and time consuming as i have to deal with enemies after a failed attempt.

Is this some sorta bug or some sorta conditional use feature, as in you must be in one of the predator rooms for the reverse batarang to work, or it can't be used on outside enemies without guns? Is anyybody elese having this problem ? The first time i successfully used it i don't recall the enemy type other then it wasn't a boss. I've since tried it on guys with assault riffles outside and it will not operate in the reverse mode, it simply fires immediately causing my then i have to wait a few minutes to test it again because i have ot reload, fly away and find other enemies.

Capitalist big time.

I think much of the problems with modern society and specifically the perceived failure of markets is due to intervention in the market economy.

The concept of corporate person-hood, aka limited liability, for example is analogous to a social welfare state which guarantees income regardless of contributions or lack-thereof resulting in moral hazard. Those that would criticize corporations are in fact criticizing socialism, specifically the idea that you can transfer the costs of somebodies failures to unrelated or innocent 3rd parties and not have undesirable outcomes result from this, even when they are typically unaware of this.

I'm not actually saying that there was a better time than now.  I'm just saying that HD televisions, fast food, and video games are poor reasons to hold up as examples of our greatness.  The fact that we rely more on television and unverified internet sources to get our information has made us stupid.  Fast food has made us fat, addicted, and complacent.  Video games have shut us out of the real world and withered our bodies.  Medicine allows us to live longer, but we are much weaker in terms of physical athleticism and survivablity in the wild.  
 
Basically, I'm saying this: The world may be better now than at any other time in history, but your reasoning for why this is so is shallow and silly.
 
Have you considered that rapid access to electronic media and 24 hour news cycles has perverted you view of the state of the world. Sensationalists stories are fueled offa mayhem and disaster altering your perspectives. As far as medicine, well we dont' need to survive in teh wild, that shouldn't be a benchmark on the adaptive capacity of the human animal. 
 
As far as fast food, you have a point, we shoudl stop subsidizing the meat industry and high fructose corn starches.

No, to costly in $$ and time. Purely selfish reasons. Also by not investing 18 years of time and money raising the child i can sorta "FREE-RIDE" off the US retirement system because my only input into is via taxation and not the additional time /money investment of raising a child who also aid in it's stabilization.
 
I think there is a good bit of research that indicates that people are not necessarily happeir when they have kids.
 
Also kids are a sorta retirement insurance anyway, or where in primitive times. Since i'm forced to save for my retirement via SSI my compulsion to have another option, a young person that is altruistic toward me is diminished.  Though the pension systems of alotta western nations are subject to reduction soon i'm sure.

No, an uneducated voter is very dangerous but then the entire exercise of democracy induces individuals to be ignorant of politics so the real problem is democracy.

It is also socially acceptable to discriminate against individuals of certain races for mate selection. While the state will "ARRANGE" economic relationships of buyers and sellers, or employer/ee when they fail because of race discrimination the state and even individuals would never pressure an openly racist white man for refusing to date a black girl.
