Yes, and you must have at least one other person next to you when you pick it up (If there's more than 1 other person, you still just need one, not all next to you).

I traveled for hours in Green Bay and Hope Springs, and still nothing and I know Green Bay is the two islands on the left and Hope Springs is the huge one on the bottom right.

What are LIVE orbs? I am going to take a guess and assume that you have to be on LIVE ad in Co Op and have a GOLD membership to get them, right?

The thing is that I am missing 2 orbs in Crackdown 2 and I know you can use the Orb Ping, but does Agility Orbs show up on it, because hidden orbs, and live orbs do?
Uhhh yeah, they do. Hiddens are Blue, LIVE orbs are Grey (at least, when offline they are), and Agilities are, of course, green.

I think they're green, anyway, I haven't played in a while XD

I didn't like Crackdown when I first started playing it, but I eventually warmed to it. I still think it is an inexcusably flawed game, to be honest, but it is a lot of fun, partiucularly now that my character is completely levelled up. I actually have collected all 600 Agility Orbs and all 200 Hidden Orbs. The vertical movement and exploration alone in Crackdown makes up for a lot of issues I have with the game.

Good thing Chiro, because I am going to try to rent that game if I can return either Mass Effect or Mass Effect 2.

I am still playing the original Crackdown. lol I am a latecomer to the party, but everything I read in most of the reviews says that this game is too much like the original to warrant sequel or "new game" status. What are your thoughts on that, guys?

Oh, and I have some questions about the original Crackdown if some of you could see fit to answer them in the Crackdown forum.

quote Curt Connors
By playing the demo like twenty times, the achievements stay unlocked after every playthrough like normal ones.
Anyone tried out the harder difficulties yet?
Oh and I am genuinely not understanding the 'meh' feeling, sure the graphics are a little more simplistic to compensate for hundreds of freaks on screen, but it just doesn't bother me. Just about everything else is on a par or improved from the original, freak lair invasions are spectacular, orb hunting is better and just as addictive, and the supply point mechanic has been much improved. Demo feels meh because it's a demo and has strict limits imo.
Oh right. Dont know why I thought you got them all in one sitting..

I cant speak for every one but to me, it's meh because the look of it and feel of it, but most just the look of it and to make it worth, it's the same city.

Maybe, I just need to play it a abit more, it might grow on me then..

They're pre unlocks of actual existing achievements

quote tallteen86
You do realize that, by playing about 20 times, you've actually already played this game for like 10 friggen hours?

I get enthusiastic over super-powered massacres, ok?

Are the achievements in the demo in addition to the full game's achievements? Or are they actually just like "pre-unlocks"?
