Hi, guys. I need help. On my playstation 3, I have a difficulty winning the races near the ocean. What motorcycle should I ride on to win those races?

Also, I was unable to win any arm wrestling match on my playstation 3 no matter how quickly I moved the right stick on my dualshock 3 controller. Please help me resolve these issues. Thank you in advance.

I used the Bati Custom for all my races and haven't lost yet with it. It's my favorite bike for races, only downside is it doesn't handle so well on the beaches, since it's designed for asphalt racing, but still very possible to win despite reduced traction.

 

All around the Bati Custom is a great racing bike, but if you still have troubles racing on sand (I'm assuming that's what's giving you trouble near the ocean) then you can try using the Sanchez as it's designed for offroad and should have better grip than the other bikes there.

I still haven't won any beach race (Alderney Casino and Alderney Beach races). I read somewhere that Sanchez bike would be good for this race because it's good for off-road races.

What about arm wrestling in Lost and Damned on ps3? Any luck with it, anybody?

I gave up on the arm wrestling thing. I have the game for 360 and no matter how quickly I moved the damn analogue stick I'd still lose. I figure it ain't worth breaking your controller over, what a dumb minigame.

 

The only thing those arm wrestling groups are good for is as a target for my rocket launcher. whatsthat.gif

Yeah, I used the Bati to win the races too! Admittedly I lost a few races before I realized I could thrash the racers at their own game with the Bati before the Bati I was using the hexer.

After three days of trying, I finally won the Alderney Casino race with the Bati Custom motorbike....

Speaking of arm wrestling, I read in another thread that was posted here that someone had won one arm wrestling battle on a ps3 console. This is good news because it gives me hope that one day I'll able to beat my opponent in arm wrestling. smile.gif

Yeah good luck with the arm wrestling thing. lol

 

They made that so difficult to do, it's just crazy. I mean Johnny's supposed to be this big tough biker and he can't even over power someone in a match. You'd think a guy that can carry a fully loaded assault rifle, shotgun, SMG, pistol, sniper rifle, 25 grenades, and a rocket launcher all in his pocket wouldn't have a problem taking down some fool at arm wrestling, but noooo...

Since I've only the arm wrestling left to do for 100% I am just going to leave it until someone comes up with a mod or a hack to make it easier.

Protip: Win the first round, lose the second, win the third. OR Lose the first, win the second, win the third. I've experimented a lot and I'm real confident with this.

It was a clever way to make you feel some muscle exertion in your arm, but I think Rockstar finally agreed it was too hard on the controller since they put the same minigame in Red Dead Redemption but changed the input to button mashing.

Ah that's a lot better! I only wish they have thought of that before, but it's nice to see they realized the potential problems and made the necessary changes. icon14.gif

Arm Wrestling is Hard???? I've won every game I've played, on both 360 and PS3, not tried on PC but if I assume it transfers the analog controls to the Mouse, then it wouyld just be annoying as hell like the other mini-games.

 

But yeah, it's easy, like, real easy.

 

When a match starts, put the corner of your PALM on the stick and and just move left and right in a very fast motion, or tilt the controller to it's side and move your palm up and down very fast if you feel more comfortable doing that! wink.gif
