    GameStop Exclusive Retro Jason

    @Dolemite for some reason the black outlines around the collar looked more prominent on the GameStop website photo, I just took mine off the shelf and realized it is exactly the same. My mistake, apparently it is exactly the same as the previous release. (Also, the battery finally died. ? )

    Yes, it was that creepy theme when you entered the cabins. Mine still works, but I'm not really sure if the battery can be replaced.

    The paint job is a little different though, they added black lines to simulate the 8-bit outline of the in-game character's clothing. I already have the original release though, so I will probably pass on it. (Although my GameStop often ends putting a lot of it's action figures on clearance, so if it's cheap I might bite.)
  4. As Jason everything is usually pretty dark, even more so if you cut the power. As a counselor, I am usually too busy running for my life or rifling through drawers to take in all the details. It's a shame there isn't a sandbox mode because the devs really put a lot of effort into replicating the film environments.
  5. It has (in some of my matches) played havoc with the "Tommy" spawn. Sometimes, I stumble upon the radio cabin late in the game, and even though there are still a couple of spectators left watching, neither of them return as Tommy after I radio reinforcements. Maybe it's just a glitch, but it does affect things currently. I guess it's that "Fortnite" mentality that keeps people jumping out of matches.
  6. That's actually a really good idea! Maybe not a full level though, because accidents do happen (and some players would purposely throw themselves into incoming traffic to troll) but if you kill more than one player in a round the accumulated total could roll you back a level or two.
  7. Yeah no, Jason teamers are already a constant problem with this game as it is. Just fix the car and run counselors over if you really want to ruin the game for other players. ?
  8. I think they had discussed a "sandbox" mode (at least for counselors) at one point. The later Jasons you unlock aren't any better than the beginning ones (the arguably best is Savini, which you had to donate to Kickstarter to receive) they are just different. A lot of high level and experienced players still run with parts 3 and 5. Jason doesn't unlock any new abilities as you gain experience, just more amusing grab kill animations (and at level 113 a weapon swap). His kit is as complete as it can be from the start. 20 minutes is a decent enough time to hunt down and kill the rather stupid ai bots. Just set it to easy if you are struggling. You are eventually going to need to learn to work within the time limit in multiplayer matches anyways, so removing the timer might only sabotage you in the long run.

    Do we have any Jason cosplayers here?

    @Dragonfire82877 thank you!

    Was it two separate masks? I was thinking on the drive home about it, and thought maybe due to the electronic eye effects it was all one piece. Would have loved to have seen the Jason face underneath if that was the case!

    The wife and I also attended Orlando's Spooky Empire Con last weekend as Roy and A.J. Mason! And tapping the "hue" effects button down in the corner gives me... 8-bit Nintendo Roy! "This game sucks, the controls are terrible and they didn't even use the right Jason!" Lol. @Zoopta it's you! Excellent work on the costume! the LED effects were amazing! I was pulling for you to win the contest. (Although when I spotted the "Aliens" Power Suit in the halls I looked at my wife and said, "well that's going to be the contest winner.")
  12. I thought according to the manual barricading a cabin's doors helped manage your counselor's fear level? Anyways, I always set all the traps I come across (I'm practically OCD about it) so barricading the door is one of the few ways to keep other counselors from accidentally tripping them, and if Jason is in rage mode he will be vulnerable to a free stun should he break it down, which really isn't an option if the door is left open. For me it simply makes more sense to close and barricade these things. (And yes, I do open all the nearby windows.) I also started running thick skin and hypochondriac so I can still window hop regularly without suffering too much damage.
  13. I don't really have answer, but I would guess it has something to do with Mark from Part 2, as someone earlier in this thread suggested adding the wheelchair character into the game.
  14. You're right now that I think about it. But Shelly or Deb usually make up for it by finding a second one! Once in awhile the bots will actually use their knives to disarm my traps. Which is surprising considering how dumb they are in most other situations.
  15. The devs should have at least used the Rob Dier character model for the single player challenges based on Friday the 13th Part 4 . That's a famous line from one of the worst movies ever made, "the Room."
  16. I'd rather just have one more pocket knife spawn on the map then as a perk. Playing against bots has now become a tedious chore since they all have pocket knives, and will also immediately throw down a firecracker after an escape from your grab. Smart talented players who don't "need" a pocket knife to survive will probably use it simply to disarm Jason's traps, making defending objectives near impossible.
  17. I like the idea of kids getting their picture with Michael Myers like they do with Santa at Christmas. Saw the new movie, btw. I loved it. Visually, it really looked like a film from the seventies but with modern cars, cellphones, etc. (Sort of like "It Follows") I also loved Carpenter's new score. Can't find it on Amazon music but I think Target is selling a physical copy of the soundtrack. Don't want to spoil the film but Laurie Strode's daughter (Judy Greer) has a fantastic moment towards the conclusion of it. ?
  18. Well I'm speaking in the sense of "Jason grabs and kills me in the first 5 minutes and therefore is no fun" sense. If you plan to fight then you should make peace with the fact that you will probably die. As a beginner, experience IS the only real way to learn combat in the game, if that is your goal. You just have to be cool with the fact that you may be spectating for the next 15 or so minutes. @Ahab I agree, if you can successfully kite Jason for a good chunk of time, which helps others escape then I consider it a "win" even if I die. (However, if I put on one hell of a chase, die and then see in spectator mode everyone else hiding in a cabin, dancing around and smacking each other with machetes... then I'm a bit cross.) ?
  19. "Easy listening" is just a pointless perk all together. If I want to regain stamina quicker I have to stand next to likely the only radio on the entire map, turn it on and send out a signal that alerts Jason to my exact whereabouts?!? What's the plan, try and cabin loop him in that one tiny area for the rest of the game and hope he doesn't at any point smash the radio? I also think any repair based perks shouldn't make the quick time wheel move faster, rather they should increase the size of the targets, making it slightly easier for a "dumber" counselor to repair an objective. The slight increase of speed for smart characters like Deb, Eric and Tommy wasn't all that helpful anyways (imo).
  20. @Ahab yeah that was me! I've gotten better at juking with AJ lately! It's not my preferred play style (I actually like getting things repaired behind the scenes and escaping under the cover of darkness, if I never see Jason so much the better!) but it does feel exhilarating if I can pull it off and last the full 20 minutes. @OMOD yeah, it's true if he had started off with a grab the chase could have been over before it began. (Weirdly, most of my recent games have been with "slasher Jasons".) The point is to stay off his radar for as long as possible and always try to put some distance or obstacle between the two of you. I think the problem is too many new players want to fight Jason and /or "troll" him. Unless your Tommy and sweater girl I wouldn't go actively looking for a battle.
  21. The female repair counselors have high stealth, so if you can just stay off Jason's radar and repair the objectives he is furthest away from (check your map often, Jason is sometimes highlighted on it if he has been spotted by another player.) You can get stuff done. If a trap is on the objective you can disarm it with a pocket knife silently. If you don't have a knife, you or another player unfortunately will have to set it off. So make sure to heal (or equip the thick skin perk) and run away! Personally, I do think the game has a pretty decent learning curve. skilled high level Jasons usually clean up (6- 8 kills a game) Whereas beginning players on both sides of the aisle (Jason and counselors) tend to struggle. Watch some videos, learn to conserve your stamina, (don't run if you don't need to, you make louder pings for Jason to follow when you do) lock cabin doors and try to avoid close quarters combat unless necessary.
  22. I'm serious. I loved that video that one dude posted where he does all the cool bank shots with the flare gun. If you can do some crazy cool stunts when killing Jason why would anyone not want to see that?
  23. Well actually, now this is more confusing. ? You should do it! Sounds like a lot of fun! Only cheap impossible shots sounds like it would make for a great YouTube video regardless. Good luck!
  24. @Ahab no offense but nearly every post you make is a gigantic wall of text. I am not quoting that entire thing to address one tiny statement. Notice that I said "If it's happening to you in private matches," It wasn't a definitive conclusion about your gaming habits. Sorry if I upset you, though. But by the same token just because someone on the internet claims something happens, does not necessarily mean that it really happens. They could be exaggerating and embellishing to make a point or they could be straight up fibbing. Without actual video evidence it's just hearsay, or at best anecdotal evidence. 8 games with 8 successful Jason kills, post-dedicated servers just didn't sound very probable. Again, my apologies, if you can say with God as your witness this exact situation happened, (and that you aren't possibly remembering things) then I guess I will just have to believe you. In my opinion, rage is simply meant to put pressure on the counselors and speed up gameplay by quickly destroying barriers and decreasing the cool down time on Jason's abilities. (Scaring players is really just a bonus.) Why have combat and weapons even in the game if halfway (give it take) through the match they are made irrelevant?
  25. You don't have to "rage" through doors. You an continue to combat stance and attack them as any seasoned Jason player does pre-rage (regardless of some nonsense so-called "rules of etiquette" ). Plus, this puts you in the stance necessary for block. If you want the instantaneous gratification of the "one tap" destruction of barricades then there should be some risk involved. I never see this happen in QP. Even if I get matched with a group of very experienced Jason hunters, the game servers boot everyone back onto the home screen after 3 or so rounds of play. If it's happening in private matches, that's on you. Make new friends with players that suck, then you can dominate. ?
