Also 7 days until execution and 2 new maps! Cant wait.

1 new map. The other has been delayed.

I checked out the maps for Survival, and judging by the way bots behave in Overrun, along with the statistics on the leaderboard, Estate would be the best map for Insane if people are looking to do it. While it would seem like the best setup would be a team of Bairds, that would probably backfire with destroyed barriers. The Gnasher uses up ammo too quickly, so you'd want a Cole to resupply you.

Then, considering how tough enemies get later, you'd definitely want a Paduk to spot them coming with the Beacon grenade, which also seems to weaken them. His Markza is decent for killing Corpsers if it can hit the face of it. But, considering that, Sofia's Sawed-Off is excellent against the heavy enemies, but lacks sufficient ammo. So you'd probably want a decent mix of the group.

I'd suggest something like 2 Bairds, and one of the remaining characters. Each Baird stationed at opposite sides, with the other three moving around, and Paduk throwing his spot grenades as close to the Kryll screen as possible to get initial reads of incoming enemies.

Or you could put the two Bairds on one side together, and have Cole, Sofia and Paduk defend the other, with them hopefully being able too competently defend. Not sure what would be most efficient.

Well that's the truth from what I've seen. I'm amazed I can keep a 1.0KD without resorting to the overabuse of gnasher/melee combo with stims. I try to go classic hammerburst/frag combo.

But yeah that video is painfully funny and they need to do some balancing in the next few weeks. At least make melee weaker and interupt less, and give less healing from the stim grenades.

I was able to hit the minimum for whatever the 100 mark is so eh whatever.

I'm still enjoying MP. Overrun is fun there's still that chance horde will be back and execution is coming next week. They only need to address minor things.

Im starting to hate overrun, not because of the mode, but because i always get on a team full of dumbasses. Hey lets sit back as a rager and try to snipe, and do nothing to help the team. Or they sit behind cover as a grenadier and camp. Hey why dont you blind fire over cover, instead of just sitting there waiting to get another nade. This game isnt that hard. Grab some tickers, break down barriers, then rush in this big guns or grenadiers. Ragers are okay if you have barriers down you can rush in and kill the people. but sitting back is hurting your team. Also it seems like no one knows how great the wretch is, he can sneak through paths and get to the E-hole no problem. If you have 2-4 wretches and alternate screaming you can wipe out a team easy. I also dont like spawning in the middle of a match, but last time i checked the rank numbers, there were 5 people in my region lol.

I'm 1/3 done with the Medals on Insane! Though there is a little work around to getting them all with relative ease if you have a co-op partner willing to join and quit out constantly.

Haven't seen them...i saw this one on eBay, but not sure if legit. The one I got at best buy looks the same minus the skins.

People were giving them away on the Gears site, but they were from Mexico. Seems like they're unavailable in the US.

Man, a buddy and i have been trying to beat the final boss on insane. Furthest we got was near the end, he was going down, i saw a heli coming in, and boom i died. :( I bet we have been playing it for over 3 hours trying to beat this on insane with declassified.

Im kind of feeling the groovy armor skin, i like the colors. Also tiger stripe is kind of cool. but again i cant see what they would look like in red/blue form. So its hard to buy any, because i dont want to buy one and be disappointed.

Try it solo. It won't be easier, but you also don't have to worry about your friend dying, or vice-versa.

Also, when I finally took him down after maybe 5+ hours of trying, I found not having a plan, and not worrying about the Ragers ended up working best. It makes no sense, but when I focused on them I'd always get ambushed by a stealth spawned one. Just blind-fire on Karn and let the AI cover you.

I ran out of bullets when his Shibboleth finally fell to the ground, and that was really intense rushing around for ammo. Had I have died from a Rager or Grinder there, I don't know what I would have done...

The funny thing is once out of like 30 times we got snipers instead of therons. Ill try not to kill the first wave of enemies.

Also Haven is out, download it through Xbox.com or the Xbox 360 Marketplace. I read it doesnt work right if you download it from the gears judgment notification.

:roll:

Already beat the campaign once on Hardcore (with all 126 stars). I won't be bothered again to try it without the workaround on Insane to get all the stars. Not to mention the level of frustration a few of those declassifieds would bring. Can't even go down once? What kind of bullshit is that? I want the rest of my achievements (minus socialite which won't happen for a while) then back to Gears of War 3 for me.

But you know how the TA ratio whores are.

Feel like confessing or something.

Stop justifying your cheating by using the excuse that you suck at playing video games. Earn it or get out. And get rid of that obnoxious signature if you're not actually going to play your games.

I'm not a TA ratio whore by any means otherwise I would play nothing but shitty Kinect games and grindy ass achievement games. ;)

When I can find 2 other people to, I will gladly play Gears 3 campaign on Insane. Same goes with Gears 1 if I can ever find someone willing to let me be Dom. Judgment not so much since I find the campaign very uninspiring. The narrative of the story is alright and different with the testimony and stuff but it just wasn't epic enough for me (I guess Gears 3 spoiled me in that aspect)

Also FYI: I do like the changes to MP and will play that rather than mindlessly boost it. The campaign though... yeah I don't care for it. :wall:

I have the first 4 acts done on insane and all 3 stars with declassified missions. The 5th chapter i have 3/7 done, and 6th act i have 1/7 done.

I was able to beat Karn on my first try on insane without the declassified mission. Was pretty easy. I think what makes it hard are the ragers. I still have yet to try it without killing the first wave and with declassified on. Right now im just working my way up from the early levels and getting those done.

Execution is fun, feels more like gears than the other modes. Really hope they add guardian. The new Haven map is pretty nice, feels more like a classic Gears map, even though its not a mirrored map.

Also i read that the melee stun was reduced a bit, along with the smoke stun. So thats good news. Now if only they would remove Stim nades from everything other than Overrun.

The one that I found kinda hard on my hardcore one was during Sofia's testimony where you go to the bridge with the reavers. Having little ammo and fighting those reavers was hard. That was trying to 3 star it. Also the one with limited visibility where all the therons come out with the cleavers, that might have been the fault of one of my friends though because he constantly was the one dying :booty:

The other one was more of an AI issue where you are on the rooftops and have to reach the point in a certain amount of time. Ridiculous! My co-op partner and I were there waiting and the AI just stood there and wouldn't go towards the point till it was too late. :wall:

And yeah Karn is going to be interesting on Insane with declassified active.

Declassified missions take away from the campaign experience. I wish I would have gone through the campaign first ignoring the classified missions first and then do them later.

One more chapter and I'm done wtih Hardcore Solo.

Im trying to do the one with 16 ragers all rushing the door. I have like 8 trip wires up in the path leading to the doorway, i take at least 4-6 ragers out with the one shot, and its still almost impossible. The best part is trying to run and getting stuck on shit. Or trying to jump down an open hole only to find out its not a part you can jump down from. So retarded.

EDIT: Beat it. I saw a video online, the booshka is a great way to close up that first hole by the car. Less ragers that way. Also the sawed off was great to kill the ragers when they rushed me. One shot kill. Thats behind some dumpster, near the first hole that opens up.

I think the only hardcore declassified mission I didn't pass was where you had to do something within a time before the poison gas was released, I gave up on that one and just did it regular lol. It's been a week since I returned it to Redbox, Lipton needs to hurry and send me my damn game already.
