      Gears of War 2

      Finally got a code for the Beta. So far it's pretty awesome. I'll let you know how much I like it after playing with my buddies.

      Also, does anyone have any extra codes? I got someone who wants in if you have a spare. Just send me a private message.

      If any of you play Gears regularly and have decent writing skills and wants to be an admin on this group, let me know. I just don't have quite as much time on my hands now that I'm a main contributor on the Screen Gems and Movie Watchers groups and I'm just not digging Gears 2 still.

      Just reply here or send me a message if you're interested.

      I'm sure everyone's heard about the coming soon Dark Corners DLC. Well, here's a video that I've procrastinated to put up that was shown at E3. It looks amazing! Just check it out:

      I'm super stoked to get War Machine back! Sure, they're putting a Boom Shot on it, but I think it'll still be the best map in the game. I'm sure the new campaign mission will be awesome, we know Epic is good at that. Remember, if you buy it in the store, you get the Dark Corners DLC plus all the other map packs for $20. Great deal.

      Gears of War 2

      On March 24th comes the Title Update 3. And with that we will see the new XP online ranking system, exploit fixes (like bridging and stand-bying), refined matchmaking, map balancing, better headshot detection, tweaked chainsaw duels and nine new achievements worth a total of 250 points.

      Then, on March 31 Epic brings us the Snowblind Map Pack with four winter themed maps: Grindyard, Under Hill, Courtyard, and a snowy remake of Fuel Depot. No price has been put on the map pack as of yet.

      So, dust off your copy (I know I will have to) and get warmed up so you'll be at the top of the leveling system before everyone else!

    • Update 3... update

      10 years ago

      Gears of War 2

      As of the 26th, Epic said they're in final testing before sending the 3rd Gears 2 update to Microsoft for certification. This process will take 2 weeks, so we're looking at 2-3 weeks, maybe, before we get the next update.

      The update will sport a new online leveling system, 5 new achievements, and a tweak to the smoke grenade flash damage. When you fall down, you'll get up after 2 seconds regardless of the animation. Sure, I wish they would get rid of it altogether, but this is at least better.

      That's all I know so far, I'll be updating more often... hopefully.

      ...but here's what the latest update covers. From the Official Gear of War website:

      Earlier today, the Gears team released Title Update 2 for Gears of War 2. The update is available now, and contains a number of improvements and fixes to exploits, some of which are listed below:

      * Exploit Fixes: Crabwalking, invisibility, weapon-slide, melee through walls, unlimited ammo.
      * General Fixes: Shotgun and Boomshot updates, meatshield chainsawing updates, team communication, Insane gamer pic award.
      * Balancing: Planted proximity grenade updates, increased quitting penalties, spawn protection, flamethrower stopping power.
      * Improvements: Annex uses execution rules, achievement progression in the War Journal, added 7 DLC-based achievements worth 175 gamerscore.


      For a more detail on exactly what's fixed, go here.

      Now, it's been a while since I've played Gears 2, admittedly, and there's been a few other updates, but getting on the other day and playing a few rounds of Warzone and the like I was really impressed. For one, I only lagged in one game and my buddy and I suspected that someone was Standby glitching the system because there was only one person getting the points and kills. Don't worry, that person will be dealt with. Another thing is my shotgun actually worked! You can fire from the hip and kill people again! I can still tell it's not exactly as effective as Gears 1, but it's much better than it used to be. Now, if they'd only get rid of splash damage from smoke grenades...

      Well, my Xbox is completely messed up. Simply won't read discs. No error, just won't read them.

      SO. I was just wanting to know what everyone thought of the new map pack. I haven't gotten to download them, much less play them.

      P.S. Just another reason why I'm still looking for an Admin to help fill in...

      Gears of War 2

      So, I have this busy life with having a wife and kid, right? Not only have I only played Gears 2 about 3 times since I posted the previous news, but I've barely turned on my 360 without having a movie going on it.

      The reason I'm posting this is for anyone who is interested in maybe helping out with posting news items and the like to either reply to this or shoot me a message. Our good friends here at RvB have added the ability for me to make other people Admins. Please just don't be upset if I don't pick you, I will be looking over some of your previous journals to see how you write so it won't look like I put a 7 year old in charge.

      Thanks!
