Wasn't that already known information? My Amazon pre-order already had mention of a March date for some time now. I think for at least a week or two.


Amazon still lists the release date as Dec. 31 2013

Yeah we never really had a date until now. Its not like GOW 3 will be dead if judgment has its own MP. People still play 1 and 2

Digital download $20 through the market place. Got tired of waiting for a sale that would never come so I broke down and bought it.

Thanks. I'm really hoping to find it for less though. Only really want it to unlock a skin and play the extra scene although the mods sound cool. Almost got Max Payne 3 on PC because of all the great mods for 1 & 2, but I just don't have a gaming rig for it and I figured it was more console based this go around anyway.

Wow a 1v1 special event. So badass.

People on the GOW forums are saying they got the achievement but I've gotten no ribbon.

I got a ribbon when I tried it out. Did NOT get one last week for the top gun event.

I'm not sure of the setup, I just know Joe Graf himself posted it. The game is supposed to keep track of how many games you are in without other players. If you hit a certain amount, it's supposed to send off a flag. Bad connection results if you're permanently the host, but since the game has dedicated servers, it's supposed to avoid this. It's not impossible to have a game where it's you against bots, it's just unlikely that it would be happening repeatedly for long lengths of time.

If you'd like to prove this warning wrong, you're more than welcome to. Just be advised that you've been warned.

It has dedicated servers? I thought there were very few or they were only for ranked or something. I NEVER seem to be on them.

Hmmm...wonder if it'll happen. Gears 3 was supposed to hit in the spring and got pushed to fall...I somehow see this happening again.

Hope I'm wrong though.

Depends, what's the exclusives for Xbox look like next fall? Halo 4 is this year of course, what about a Halo 2 HD remake next fall? What else? Wasn't the main reason it got pushed back before due to wanting to create a better christmas season for 360? They stated it would give them more time to polish the game. Maybe they should have worked on dedicated servers...:roll:

Yeah we never really had a date until now. Its not like GOW 3 will be dead if judgment has its own MP. People still play 1 and 2

But it's not like those two games are in the top 20 like recent CoDs... I've seen the numbers in Gears 1 recently, but what's it like trying to play 2 nowadays? I still need several mp cheves and a few horde ones.

Yeah we never really had a date until now.


Apologies for my mistake. I somehow knew it came out on/around my birthday, and swore Amazon sent me a pre-order update. Maybe I misread the God of War: Ascension date and confused the two.

It has dedicated servers? I thought there were very few or they were only for ranked or something. I NEVER seem to be on them.

It's what Joe Graf said. It could be a grand lie, like a lot of what Epic says, but I wouldn't want to risk rank over something like that when you can gain a lot of XP in Horde mode, or other game modes.

I'm curious to hear if they mention dedicated server 'support' for Gears of War: Judgment. I don't think that will go over too well this time with getting applause from audiences at conventions.

But it's not like those two games are in the top 20 like recent CoDs... I've seen the numbers in Gears 1 recently, but what's it like trying to play 2 nowadays? I still need several mp cheves and a few horde ones.

Since there's still people playing the first game, I'd expect a small but reliable community for the second game. But if you're interested in going after the multiplayer and Horde achievements you'd probably better off looking for teammates. I'd expect most people still playing multiplayer to be clans or parties, and you'd be at a strong disadvantage against them with unknown teammates...or worse; bots. Same for Horde mode, as it can be immensely annoying with random players that don't 'work as a team.'

I was going to ask if people from this site wanted to play/get help in Horde mode in Gears of War 2, but I don't know if people would be interested in it.

Yeah finally got a ribbon for it and GOW 2 seems to still be alive from the streams I watch.

I'm down for Gears 2 most any time I'm online. Like I said I still need a couple of the cheves. Burning bloodmounts is one and besides it will help me slowly chip away at Seriously 2.0. We could probably find some people from Trueachievements or another cheves site if not from here.

Played some 1 on 1 last night. Got paired with a guy who I beat 85% of the time, but he really hung in there. Even taunted me before a couple of executions. I was like "I just beat you 12 times in a row and you're going to taunt when you finally get a win." And then I won another 10 in a row. Went up from 80 to 84. Also, this is a great boost for several goals. It got me to Gold MVP, a bunch of executioner ribbons for a mutator. Lots of ctl matches, ctl wins as leader and button up ribbons as well. Wish it applied to skunker.

He was probably going for the Vengeful Medal points. Actually, that's probably a great playlist to go for that in since you're only facing one other person, so it's narrowed down for you if you keep getting killed by them.

I already have all of the Gears of War 2 achievements, and I'd need to install it again. If you need an extra player, I'll help, just let me know in advance so I can free up space on my hard drive and download the maps. I'm certain there's people on this site who don't have all 1750. Hopefully they'd join up to get their missing achievements, rank up, and/or add to their Seriously 2.0 count.

I prefer Horde mode, suck at competitive, but if you need help for those achievements I'll do my best.

I did the burning bloodmouts achievement on my own, just start wave 10 on all fathers garden i believe, run to the scorcher and wait for them to spawn. shoot the riders off before they get close then burn the beasts. You might get 1-3 before you die, but you eventually get it.

I've been in close a thousand guardian matches and not once have I seen people boost but I see a lot of people teabagging now its kinda odd. Pent up dudes sexually moving their stick back and forth pretending to Fuck you.

LOL I don't know why people care about their level in a game like this. Upping your level does nothing except make you look more experienced then you really are. What good is looking like a level 70 when you play like a level 2?

GoW: Judgement release date confirmed for March 19, 2013.

I will not be buying it--not new, at least. After GoW3, I refuse to support Epic's shit anymore. It's a shame because I really do enjoy their games, but they Fuck over their fanbase with everything else.

I still have no idea which events I missed from the first cycle of events, so I don't know if I'll ever get the Socialite achievement. And that crap was glitched anyway, so really there's not much to feel accomplished about since everyone has it already.

I think sometimes it ends right away when the player being executed leaves the game.

Also like linkin prime said, if someone chainsaws them it will end it, and it gives the person who did the chainsaw xp for execution. lol
