Gears of War 2

Recommended Posts

I HATE ONLINE ACHIEVEMENTS. The one's where you slowly accumulate over time just by playing the game (i.e. the Spartan Officer one in H3, Seriously in GoW, etc) I'm ok with, but developers just love to make the achievements as stupid as possible. I'm looking at you, Halo 3.

First 1k were fine .. The extra 750 are a big steaming pile of dog poop.

Yeah, the original Halo 3 achievements were pretty good, maybe with the exception of mongoose mowdown and 2 for 1. The only problem with those two were that they relied on either random chance or boosting in order to get. Atleast with something like overkill you will get if you're good enough - or maybe lucky enough. A grenade here, a mismatch there, and you can get the achievements. However, certain achievements that are less reliant on skill, and really just collecting certain things, i.e. get x number of kills with y weapon, are just horrible. It can turn some game modes into nothing but boosting playlists. Like COD4's head to head. I don't think anyone uses that playlist for anything other than completing challenges. One example of what achievements can do to certain parts of a game. There's also stuff like at the beginning of Halo 3, Lone Wolves (Ranked Free for All) was full of boosters.

 

 

 

Achivements can make or break games. I'd say it's better to just have them as a way to show others how far into the game you've gone, i.e. for completing the storyline, for beating minigames, for holding a hiscore (I've always wondered why this doesn't exist, there should be an achievement for haing eached the top 10,000 of the hiscores for certain games, this would be a real achievement), for completing a certain number of matches.


There's no such thing as regret. A regret means you are unhappy with the person you are now,

and if you're unhappy with the person you are, you change yourself. That

regret will no longer be a regret, because it will help to form the new,

better you. So really, a regret isn't a regret.

It's experience.

BAD idea. Just bad.

How? It actually gives an achievement some merit, and requires some skill.

It's just a no you do not do because they are a waste of space. No merit. Just means that the people that get the game on release or if its not world wide everyone else cant get it.

11 days [bleep]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I forgot that it's coming out so soon until yesterday, when I had to decide which game's I can buy in the coming weeks. So many to choice...GoW 2 Limited Edition, Little Big Planet, and fallout 3 are what I decided on. If anyone has any person experience with the new SOCOM game let me know what you think? I'm considering getting it but the reviews aren't to promising.

I disagree, I was ecstatic when the little sono[bleep]un finally kicked off.

 

Is it the Limited Edition that comes with the model Lancer?

Hah, my friend is going to the midnight release, then I'll go to his house for a night of Gears. I'll have to pull him away from school, even if he goes kicking and screaming.


I was going to eat hot dogs for dinner tonight. I think I will settle for cereal.

What is needed to play as ALL of the playable characters online?

 

 

 

I'm pretty sure it's:

 

 

 

1. Dom- Beat first level in Gears 1

 

2. General RAAM-Beat General RAAM-any difficulty right?

 

3.Kim collect 10 COG tags.

 

 

 

That's all right? Speaking in terms of playable GoW 2 characters that can only be unlocked in GoW 1.

Actually, I think Dom is default, RAAM is beating RAAM on Hardcore (A Dish Best Served Cold) and Kim is 10 COG tags, while the original Carmine is 20 (or the other way around).

Best games ever, in order:

 

Final Fantasy VII - PlayStation

Gears of War - Xbox 360

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic - Xbox

Fable II - Xbox 360

Dead Rising - Xbox 360

I just wanted to see if I could buy the golden codes so I looked online and for a golden lancer and hammerburst one guy has for $77. LOLLERSKATES more money for the gold weapons then the game itself. :lol: :lol: :lol:
