    @RedSparrows they sap your health if you are in their radius!

    One example would be using it against people hiding in cover to make them move.

    The stun was just a super cheap free kill.

    And it is the best mp game :)

    And a necessary one at times... for killing the leader, AND protecting yourself as leader. It's made things a fair bit more difficult now in Guardian, having played a few more games. Inks are almost useless now, the bog standard smoke you get by default is more useful in that mode.

    Anyone on tonight boys, thinking Gears or GTAO or we could play Judgment ;-)

    I will be on 20:00-23:30ish. If I'm on AC IV or Diablo III send me a invite and I will quit out and join, only for you select few though :-)

    Hi boys tried to join, but Xbox died yet again :-(
    I will try and source another powerbrick just in case that is the problem.
    The first time it died, the lead looked,as though it had been half pulled out, could excess heat cause this ? The other 4 times no such issue, it just turned itself off.
    I played for a couple of hours this morning, but apart from that it had been off?

    If only the new machine was BC.

    Great games with barbour and bfg. Sorry you *nearly* joined us duff. We saw you were on gears, then barbour said it looked like your 360 had packed in again.

    Jono, you've gotta get on next time, it's been *far* too long!

    Oh noes, the fairer sex is distracting him away from the Locust :p

    (actually, I should be thankful, my other half doesn't complain much about my gamesplaying time)

    I thought you were going to be playing gears tonight when I first saw you'd posted mate! ;-)

    The PS I's rather spiffy. Killzone pretty, but ultra-bland. Resogun is really good. The UI and speed of everything is impressive too. I even managed to upgrade the hdd easily excepting stress caused by an iffy usb stick for re-installing the OS.

    Just needs more games. And Gears. Still living in hope for multi-platform this new gen.

    Very pleased with it so far. New shiny stuff is always nice. I also put a pin number on it so the boy can't play it when I'm not around. It didn't take him long to find it on top of the BR player under the telly. :D

    Afternoon Gearheads.
    I managed 50 waves of Horde yesterday :-)
    Team of 5, me + 2 Canadians (coms) and 2 Russians(no coms ;-))
    We failed first at wave 36, then 42 and 48. Last boss was a Lzerker, 2 attempts before we got there.

    Spank, so I couldn't join mate, when you sent request I was on wave 48.

    @DUFFMAN5 Nice one. I came on for a few games and saw you on wave 48. Ended up going off as I was having network issues. Not given up on getting wings yet.

    Are you getting any lag? I tried playing a couple of nights during the week, and it was all over the place. Horribly unplayable. And I've got a decent connection (12 Mbps). So bad, I went and started 1999 mode in Bioshock Infinite to give that a whirl...

    I experienced bad lag yesterday and I'm on 30mb/s. What's the changes dedicated servers are long gone?

    @Mayhem64 no it's not lag. It's a problem with my BT router that seems to only let one device access Xbox Live properly. Now that I have my Xbox One set up the NAT settings for the 360 are all messed up!

    Duff... I'm blue 80-90 ish rank at the mo. Can't stop playing Forza 5 though!

    My query was to everyone here, but cheers for explaining. I'll give it another go this week. Dedicated servers are long gone, it's been P2P for a while. But it's been generally okay until last week, and then every single match was horrible. Made me wonder if it was an issue with Xbox Live itself (everyone hammering it for One updates) or something wrong my end without me knowing it.

    I did a speed check (fine), a ping check (fine), a NAT check (fine), and made sure my router channel wasn't competing with any nearby signal of equal strength. Still I was getting lagged. So I have no clue. At least I made some good progress in 1999 BI...

    I think I've worked it out. It's my brother's new Sony Bravia with Smart TV functions! I asked him to turn it off and tried playing again, and it was virtually lag free. Gonna have to figure this one out now, if the wifi can be turned off when he isn't using that part...

    Cool but why would it cause a problem? Is it somehow stealing your bandwidth? Surely your speed test would show that up?

    Gears 3 generally has good network code. Unless you're playing against the French. Still amazed at how bad their internet appears to be!

    It may not be the entire answer... I was having problems just staying connected to Live and finding matches, let alone the lag in games. With the TV off, no problem staying connected and finding matches now. However some lag still persists. I really don't know why unless I'm just finding every single laggy match now. It was fine until last week...

    Anyone care to play some Gears for a bit on sunday evening?

    If not, I shall fire up Gears 1 and play some SP to relive it for a while before deleting it from the HDD in readiness for passing the 360 on to the care of our boy. I look forward to seeing the escape from jail and a few more opening levels again for the nostalgia. Might even fire up the MP in honour of the year plus I spent playing pretty much nothing else but it :)

    Hi mate
    If I get on, more than happy to play ANY Gears. I played some Gears mp a couple of days ago, found a few matches easily. Also played a bit of sp, I love the original campaign, more horror than the other campaigns.

    Also have befriended* a couple of Canadians who play nothing but Horde (G3) so been playing some of that again, got to wave 50 a week or so ago. All 5 players in from the get-go :)


    *they don't take the place of you,jono,bfg,trout,barbour,spank et al of course.
