    I see everyone will get war supporter boosted to 29/30 so you'll hopefully get thst one soon, if you haven't got it yet.
    Kinda annoying that people got freely boosted up to 29 when I have been checking pretty much every weekend for a few months for my last ribbon

    Are we doing a Gears game sesh this week? If not, anyone up for Halo Co-op? Finally finished on Legendary and I almost stopped due to the time but thought one more go and it paid off!

    Although, looking through the stats, it says I haven't completed all the missions. Is this Gears all over again?!

    I had the same thing happen to me on Halo 3. Maybe it's a Halo thing?

    Put my name down for Gears or Halo on Thursday/Friday!

    I would be up for this. I only play on normal though (did do the first sparton ops on Leg though...lots of deaths ;)
    How do all you halo gods play on the hardest setting ?

    Om on Friday,Sun evening so Gears or 4 x campaign Halo sounds fun.

    I'd be up for some Spartan Ops or Gears so count me in.

    Same here. Gears or co-op Halols is fine by me if there's room.

    I'm not doing legendary just now either Duff. Heroic first to learn the maps/scenarios then maybe a legendary run after that once I kind of know what I need to bring. apart from a plasma pistol/DMR :)

    I even did Spartan Ops on Normal, but I see there is no real penalty for dying anyway, so will step it up a bit next time. Those new dudes are pretty tough on normal though, due to sheer weight of numbers so god knows how Jono & Trout found them on campaign!

    I'm finiding Legendary relatively easy, the trick is to just be patient and not rush in.

    The new enemies were tough at first, but once you work out their tactics they become easier.

    :)

    Y'see on normal I was over-confident and just waded in and got blasted with suppressors. DMR is great for the dogs though. 1 shot to head, backing off and keeping you distance definitely works with them!
  • Deleted user 13 November 2012 13:57:17
    Yep, pretty much the same tactic I use on Legendary. I'm on mission 6 now and haven't wanted to smash my controller to bits. It's the perfect difficulty imo.

    Messing of course. We'll always find our way back to our hone, Sera, to protect our Guardians and fend off the Horde!

    So gears 3 was on my door mat when i got home from work yesterday and after quickly completing the end of halo ae (I'm a bit of a freak and have to complete one game before starting another!) i played the first couple of chapters of act 1 last night.

    Got to say i really enjoyed it! I loved the quick crouching run that happens when you hold a down. It feels very 'actiony' and cool.  One of the things that surprised me most though was the nice quiet moments on the boat. Having never played a gears game before i was expecting all out action but i really liked the contrast between the quiet, sombre moments and the shoot outs and explosions.

    I also had a quick couple of games on team deathmatch and thought that was even more fun!  I'm usually terrible at multiplayer but i managed 9 kills and just 3 deaths - i don't know if that's good or not but i was impressed with myself!

    I also wanted to mention the graphics - i thought they were superb in both the campaign and multiplayer!

    Needless to say I'm counting down the minutes at work till i can start playing again!

    Ha! No afraid I'm not French just boring old English.  When i signed up to eg Mr blade was already in use so i decided to go for monsieur blade.  I thought it added a little continental flair :)

    France has one of the worst average broadband speeds and pings in Europe, which accounts for the terrible lag in games when they are hosting. Worse than the UK, if you can believe that.

    Lie with passion and be forever damned...

    Looks at calendar, checks it's Thursday.... so gents, Gears this week, or possibly over the weekend? Perhaps another attempt at Guardian for the Duffmeister?

    If not, I shall no doubt squander yet more time on Halo BTB multiplayer instead of working through the campaign.

    Possibly one day this week we can see if anyone would like to try Spartan ops in co-op as Jono suggested? Or would you prefer to fire through the campaign Jono?

    I can play Gears tonight :)
    As for Halo, I would also be up for some co-op of whatever, not MP though. Gears is my one true love on MP...played some Gears1 mp yesterday mode

    How does it stand up nowadays? Last time I played that, I was getting a bit of match practice before Gears 2 was released.

    Not that it helped with the clusterfuck of lag that was the Gears 2 multiplayer on release until it had about 6 updates mind. By which time all match fitness had gone again

    Waits for the inevitable '[it never came back either' jibes! ;-)

    I'll skip tonights fun, I will be finishing the last mission of Halo.

    Count me in for any planned games over the weekend. I'll be happy to play Gears or Halo.

    Fine
    Managed a good few games, various modes. people about, not loads by anymeans but still enought to matchmake quickly.

    I forgotten how much I like the Gears 1 campaign, good story, far more survival horror at least in places thats the impression I get.

    As I'm typing this I have Richard Burton talking about walking through the dead bodies on the road in the deserted streets(War of the Worlds cd) it totally fits.
    oooohhhhhh.....loooonnnngggggggggggg

    How did you find the last mission. Took me about 4ish hour to do the final level! In comparison, heroic is piss easy.
