    Aren't we suppose to get a new thread when we reach 100 pages? Or are we taking this baby into Oblivion?

    I bought this a few weeks ago (black friday) played the single player, and sucked, but had fun.

    Tonight I got on multi-player, was just going to play around for a little while.

    Fast forward to 6 hours later. I met up with some cool people who invited me to their 4 man team (making 5)...good god it was fun. The multi-player is a pretty good experience if you just play to have fun instead of caring about scores and stuff. Gotta say I really enjoyed myself. While there is some glitchyness to the game (some people have shot guns that do triple damage and can one shot you from a mile away every once in a while) I had a blast.

    Horde is pure win, although it seems that Epic can't write a proper lobby and matchmaking system to save their lives. Disbanding the team after a round of Horde = fail.

    Spoiler:

    You're using the turret right? As long as you aren't on top of each other, the rocket volley should only kill 1 of you at best. Aside from that, I ignored the guns and just aimed at his head.

    Yup, and that's what I've been doing. The problem is, the first volley knocks whoever's on the turret down, the second one is explosively fatal.

    If I remember right it should take three to take you down. You need to defend yourself better beforehand.

    Damnit. I'll have to try it again tomorrow night and see if we can just shoot faster or something.

    No offence, but you know you can use LT to be more accurate right?

    None taken, and yeah I do. I'd have had one hell of a time completing it on hard otherwise.

    I'd like this more if the lobby system was shat, sat waiting for 5 minutes and noone, which is a shame cause I like the multi, when it's not disconnecting me.

    So there is now a glitch that makes you completely invisible. In ghost cam their guy is shaking on the ground but in game they are undetectable. Not very fun.

    Damn I suck at console based shooters.

    I need to figure out how to be good with sticks and shooters...if I could use a mouse and keyboard I would be rocking at this game...I die so much its sick.

    I so desperately want to be good at GoW2 multi-player.

    Aiming is pretty simple in this game actually, you do not have to lead unless there is lag and the main gun you want to use is the shotgun. Just get use to rolling around a lot and firing your shotgun.

    I don't own a PS3 but expect to play exclusive PS3 titles now, do I.. (yes I'm well aware GoW1 got a PC release but to bank on something that isn't on a system you own coming out on a system you own, will always be speculative)

    Well I played the PC version of Gears 1 and it worked just fine with the control scheme. Aiming with a sniper rifle and torque bow was a heck of a lot less frustrating too.

    However, Epic have been pretty definite in their statements saying that they won't be releasing Gears 2 on PC. They've said it like 2-3 times now.

    OK I know I am behind per say but I just reached that "infamous" scene. besides the bad acting it left me with a lot more questions than anything.

    First off Marcus

    Spoiler:

    If that scene was trying to get an emotional reaction from you it succeeded in doing that. but Instead of the "that was so tragic" reaction it gave me "what the hell just happened here?" .
