    Yeah, I think I might finally start my insane run through soon.

    If you need a hand I can be your 'casual difficulty' wingman?

    Gears 2 has 79 achievements, I think I've got about 25 of them (for finishing it on Normal and maybe a handful of online games).

    What's the best way to bring that haul up to a respectable 40 or 50 achievements? I'll try and play through it again on Hardcore, and maybe a few more online matches (though, I don't really like Gears online that much, feels off compared to Halo/BF/CoD)...

    I think you can get a lot of the achievements from the campaign and horde mode if you're not too fussed about multiplayer.

    The best way to do insane difficulty is to team up with someone who sets their individual difficulty to casual or normal and let them do the heavy lifting. A bit cheap but hey ho!

    I'll offer my services up for said casual, normal role. I should probably try and get my Seriously 2.0 achievement before 3 comes out.

    Yeah, that would be great. Thanks.

    Excellent. How does Sunday evening grab you?

    Unfortunately I've recently appropriated a social life after a lengthy hiatus so the next few days up to then are taken up.

    Sunday afternoon is perfect as I'm away the majority of the weekend anyway.
  • Deleted user 14 April 2011 13:45:58
    It's a date. I'll wear something nice.

    Oh baby. Those gameplay videos on the frontpage have got me really anticipating getting my sweaty little mitts on this.

    Monday 18th i think. I'm tempted to chuck the disc in over the weekend in hope!

    How much is bullet storm going for now? Didn't really fancy it but I love me some gears.

    Called it

    I believe it needs to be the Epic edition with the DLC code redeemed on it.
    Mine will be going cheap soon. And the beta public.

    Heh. Same here if the disc's not required after getting beta access it'll be on ebay asap. Ebay will be awash with cheap copies of bulletstorm soon no doubt!

    Bulletstorm was a lot of fun, but I won't be playing it repeatedly as I never get much gaming time to give it much more attention over newer releases and my ever expanding XBLA backlog.



    Edit: Tried the disk and got excited as it went through a Gears screen. Unfortunately no demo as yet, but it now says to keep 2Gb of space for the Gears 3 demo.

    It's about 500 MB, the 2 GB was just the estimated amount needed. You'll need the disc to access it for the duration.

    It's ace, btw.

    I tried it a couple of times and both times ended up in games with bots. :|

    I'm hoping we can arrange something once more people get codes, like atleast one night a week or something. The beta lasts 3 weeks right? (roughly). Then we can have glorious full party gears of war carnage.

    After a kind forumite from here said he would send me a code(legend) I was wondering if you needed the bulletstorm disc to gain entry. I know you need it for early access, but I was wondering whether you needed it for the later dates.

    If you have a code you dont need the disc at all. It behaves like a stand alone XBLA title.

    :)

    Just a heads up for those with Bulletstorm: it's just gone live. 487 MB title update once you enter the Gears 3 MP beta option on the menu.

    Also, for the first week, the only mode available is TDM and the only maps availbale are Thrashball and Checkout.
  • Deleted user 18 April 2011 10:28:40
    Don't forget to update us with impressions!

    What modes are playable in the beta btw?

    Just updated my post with what's available for the first week :)
    Capture the Leader and King of the Hill go live in a week or two I believe, along with the other maps (Trenches and Old Town [which is probably my favourite map]).

    Quick impressions from this weekend (though, I've written more elsewhere): it's probably been said numerous times in numerous places, but it's the best possible mix between 1 & 2 that you could hope for. Everything feels right and there's a good balance.
    Not a lot of people seem to be using cover all to much though, so it can get a bit manic!

    I'm so excited about this game and you've just reafirmed my excitement.

    Has the matchmaking been sorted? How long does it take to find a match?

    Matchmaking seemed fine to me; haven't had any problems besides trying to play ranked matches where it would boot me and then flash up a message saying "You were removed from the session for not participating".

    Also, games on a p2p connection seem massively improved - couldn't tell whether the dedicated servers were on or off in some cases.
