    I can't think of anything likely to spoil the story for you on the MP maps.

    Only Bairds helpful hints.

    @DUFFMAN5

    shouldn't you be able to just select the start wave as 50 for Icy Dead People then, or is nothing showing on the stats screen?

    I know my stats were showing 46/50 or similar for the Flashback 1-10 achievements, so I worked out which maps were most likely to be required by checking my maximum scores on each of the maps, and then starting on level 6 or so on the most likely candidates and then just working through to 10 on them all.

    After than I still needed 1 level, so played level 1 of each map until it popped.

    Yes mate, but I have tried a few times on wave 50 and I get killed right away :(

    Just logged on to the xbox app, BFG is kicking it old school on Gears 1.

    It's actually quite tempting me. I wouldn't mind another run through of the original gears, but would probably have to avoid the lag-fest of mp. I don't know why i am so tempted to get it again, I think I just miss aspects of it and that early next-gen 'wow factor'.

    I don't really have the time, but if I spot it really cheap somewhere over xmas sales time...

    I'm afraid I'm not trading it for my copy of Far Cry 3 though ;-)

    But you can have first dibs if I put it on the swap thread once I get it done!

    ...if you do want a lend, just let me know though. I'm playing Gears 2 99% of the time at the moment.

    Thanks mate, it's very kind of you to offer. It's not that much on ebay and it's probably just a passing fancy, but raam's shadow did remind me how much i liked e-holes etc.

    I must try to look in the bargain bins a bit more.

    I may also look into getting skyrim at some point too. I feel ready to give up a lot of my free time to an rpg again. :)

    You will love skyrim vortex! I got totally lost in it, just waiting for all the DLC to be released before I delve back in.

    You can get the collectors editions cheap on eBay now and again I got the trilogy collectors edition all complete for 37 delivered recently playing through gears 1 at the moment.

    May get them even cheaper buying them separate and of course even cheaper for non collectors.

    :eek:

    Reckon you'll hit the 100k before the next gen mate?

    Does anyone fancy some Xmas eve Gears from 10pm on or so? Or are you all doing family stuff/off out having a fine old time?

    The missus may ban me from that until she heads to bed, but I aim to try if I can. There must be some Xmas event happening surely!

    @Vortex808
    Hi mate
    Just got another cheveo (like buses etc ;) )
    Re 100K. Not too sure. I really don't cheveo farm/whore, I have a good few games around the 800 mark, that I prob could have gone onto 1000gs. I also still have around 20+games with cheveos still to get, if I ever go back to them.

    I will 99.9% get the next xbox on day of release, unless it is so far removed from a console, I don't think it will be and I really hope not. I can live with a lot of dashboard shite etc as long as I still have an xbox to play.

    I will keep playing through the backlog on the 360, so would assume at somepoint to hit 100k

    Gears is Gears though. Only 90odd days until GOWJ :) :)

    Re Xmas Eve, I will try, would be nice to have a chat/game with you fine folks.

    When can I start counting down sleeps like our son is doing for xmas? ;-)

    I hope some folk can make it. A few beers, plus some chat/laughs while playing gears and wishing you all a Merry Xmas would be great. I can think of no better way to start xmas!

    Well, I can think of one, but the missus is still out of action after her op. :-P
