      I sent you a text wondering WTH happened to you? Hopefully catch ya tonight. BTW be prepared, the 1st time I went to level 50 in Horde, I was up until 4 a.m. and had to be at work at 8 the next morning. So we start it, be prepared to finish.

      .
      Good to know on the Horde mode. I'll likely avoid playing with you and the regulars from COD until the weekend then. Its supposed to be rainy here, and other than a big regional fair to go to on Sunday, I've got no plans other than xbox and beer.

      As for MP...I may it try tonight to get a feel for what its like. I get the feeling that tactical sitting isn't a good playing strategy though. Is it more team based/objectives based, or like FFA?

      Depends. TDM is 15 lives for each team. You have a good team, you'll be fine, but play with some randoms who just bought the game and never played before and you'll get stuck like I did yesterday leading my team with kills with only about 4 or 5, and they all had NONE. I kid you not, the 4 other guys on my team in one match of TDM had no kills.

      Execution is like Search. 1 life per round.

      King of the Hill is what used to be Annex in Gears 2. Marked "ring" on the map and take control of it for 45 seconds. Whoever gets to 150 seconds first total for the map wins.

      Capture the leader. Someone is marked the "leader" of each team and it is the opponents job to go get them and take them back "hostage" to a designated spot. Usually enemies spawn.

      Wingman is like Search also, except your paired up with a partner, and it's 2v2v2v2.

      Also for those that don't play Gears much. In majority of the games I played MP/Horde alot of people don't know about "marking" the enemy. Click the left thumbstick in when aiming at the opponent and it will mark them for the team to see. Helps out tremendously.

      Click in right thumbstick and it changes your view with aiming down sights.

      Sawed off shotgun is nasty in 1 on 1 encounters. It will piss you off. Way overpowered.

      finally got to start playing at 7:30 last night.

      took some time to gather up the friends to go 4 player co-op campaign but finally did and got through all of Act 1 plus some. had a lot of fun.

      the Lambent are AWESOME how they explode makes you just go "awww gross" each time.

      then we got through 12 waves of Beast in 30:56 on Old Town awesome addition to the game this is. I think they added the replay-ability to the extreme with this addition.

      then we jumped into Horde 2.0 just 3 of us, all gears veterans, got to level 20 and had to call it quits there. Boss wave including 2 Beserker's that we couldn't figure out how to kill. The Flamer works on them but they wouldn't die.

      I played some KOTH this morning and the additions to the maps from the Beta changed it up nicely. On the Mines map there was no underground section that connected each side on the Beta, now there is. But quite cause some stupid kid started being homophobic at everyone stealing his kills. It's a team game mode STFU kid. he get a player review in the negative way

      OVERALL SCORE 9.5/10 my .5 difference is my lack of skills at 3rd person shooters and not being able to aim quick enough when i need to.

      sawed off is NOT way over powered. if you arent close you arent getting a shot so it makes up for it with the range....tired of the babies. get used to it, youll be fine.

      I was gettin stronger as the night went on! But I do need to shake the rust off since I haven't played Gears since the second one came out. The reload system takes some gettin used to again.

      It'll get nerfed. Already a petition on the Gears forums. I heard so many people complaining last night about it.

      Mark my words on this day 9/21/2011 a day after launch, that gun will get toned down.

      Also, what is up with the casual playlist not being able to be selected for MP?

      How can you tell if quick match or ranked is on the servers. I heard ranked only by reading articles online, but then I read this morning that any of the modes that require internet connection are all on servers.

      Played alot yesterday got into act II pretty far. Was playing offline since it was first gears experience I wanted to get a handle on the controls. Pretty good game, like someone else said the dialogue is rediculous. Should be on later today as well might try some horde mode.

      I heard casual is only selectable by people that haven't played the other 2 gears or something along those lines.

      Well I would be a bitch to go do that for you, so I'll be the gentleman and say you can find it on the Epic forums. I am not whining, I just think it's way overpowered. It says short range in the description, but hit detection feels as far as gnasher.

      Just a bit.

      I just read through Epic's facebook post asking what people thought of the game, and LOL'd at all the comments about sawed off shotgun "being overpowered", and even suprised me more was seeing how many people thought it should be a weapon pick-up in a map.

      I'm glad I'm not the only "bitch".

      Do turtle beaches help in Gears MP the way they do in CoD? I finally picked up a pair a few weeks ago and get the feeling from the campaign that MP will be one loud mess with no chance to hear enemies creeping up on you.

      not sure in Gears, as I havent played much MP yet, but I will say that in horde mode, our headsets were actually having a hard time with some bass when we were fighting the bromak in checkout. and bass boost wasn't even on.

      I dont understand why people complain about it. You have to literally be right in the person face to kill them and you only get what...four shots? It takes forever to reload as well. On the other hand, the gnasher can do everything the sawed off can, but it has huge range. If anything is over powered it is the gnasher.

      The is a video on Youtube of a guy doing a really thorough side by side of both weapons. I think that the complaints are coming from the shotty whores who try to pull the GOW1 and 2 gnasher dominance and the SO counters it...they dont like it.

      Ocean. You can hear everyones footsteps in MP. It will definitely be to your benefit. It saved my ass many times b/c spawns had flipped.

      all this gears talk and great previews and reviews, has me wanting to go out and pickup gears 1, 2, and 3, purely for the story line!

      i watched some MP live feed on release night, and it definitely looks difficult and would take some time for me to get used to. but great looking nonetheless.

      So last night I finished Act I by myself. Tonight my friend and I played some co-op and got through Act II and part of Act III. I was hoping it would update my personal Campaign game, but it didn't. Now if I want to play by myself again I have to re-do all that I did tonight. Not very cool.

      I think you'll like it. Like you, I've been strictly COD and FPS oriented. I was playing campaign last night and then hopped into MP for a few games with J, Dash, Vince and a few others from their friends list. I definitely got beat down hard (Finished something like 5-25 in TDM), but its really fun. Veeeery different than CoD. We'll see how much I play once BF3 and MW3 hit, but this will definitely be eating up all my gaming time until then.

      My BIL was over last night and he and I used to play co-op campaign in Halo religiously on the OG Xbox. While obviously very different, the campaign feels similar to Halo...only in 3rd person and with over the top dialogue. Its a run and gun shooter with an arcade-y feel that lends itself well to co-op play. I'm hoping a bunch will be up for co-op campaign sometime this weekend when I can dedicate a full night to it.

      Oh, and just so you know...amazon is still running their $20 credit towards future game purchases promo.
