Today I finally completed the Night Crawler mission in SOCOM 3, a year and 14 days after starting it!
At the time when I got stuck at it I turned my attentions to SOCOM Fireteam Bravo on the PSP and never got the time to go back to it’s PS2 brother, so I did a double take when I saw the date of my save file today. In the event it wasn’t as difficult as I’d thought it was when I first attempted it. I guess I’d just come off an all-guns-blazing kind of mission and wasn’t attuned to the stealth in the death of night required for Night Crawler.
I did encounter a terrible AI glitch, though, whereby the Bravo team would hide under a bridge and refuse to come out. Most strange!
After several failed attempts, I took a different approach to the level to avoid the glitch and it worked out really well, so I’m now looking forward to playing the next mission during my lunch hour tomorrow.
This is all in preparation for Fireteam Bravo 2 coming out on Friday – I need to get my Navy Seal skills honed in time for that.
Over and out. 😉
