I've only seen clips of it, but it really makes me want a 360. I remember when all the hype was swirling around when the 360/ps3 were announced, and they showed the game in development. I was just like "wow, that has some serious potential if they don't f**k it up." and it looks like they got it right. disposable income, where are you when i need you!?!

you could always just strap that to the top of your car and drive down here :D
the game itself is great, it has a great movement and shooting system. kinda like the movement and shooting style of resident evil 4 mixed with the ability to move fluidly between objects used for cover(walls, cars) Its like WOW for shooters.

Ive been playin gears since it came out.
Its got its glitches, for a while i got really sick of all the frag tagging goin on. Then they finally nerfed that a little.
What I mainly do, is Pistol whip ppl.
nail down a clip to their chest, then run up and punch the shit out of em. it'll stun them. Then go for the second pistol whip and nail em to the ground. Its amazingly effective.

Second, you might wanna put a piece of tape up on your screen for a ghetto hand made reticule so you dont have to zoom in to aim.
Shooting from the hip is the way to go man. Especially for weapons like the shotgun.

My 360 is being shipped off to microsoft right now to get the 3 red lights error fixed. So I wont have it back for another couple of weeks.

yea acid, whats your live tag? mine is "red spex". i love the frag tag, i know a lot of people hate it, but now that the shotgun is strong enough to 1 hit headshot and the chainsaw has black hole-like suction effects, it kinda evens it up. i have just learned the pistol technique you're talking about. actually all you have to do is shoot them 3 or 4 times and then pistol whip and they're downed for me. then a quick active reload and one zoomed shot to the skull...

Redspexxx understands.
As far as the tape on the screen. Its pretty hard to guess where your aiming in a regular stance. If you get in a shotgun battle with someone, and you're sitting there in Zoomed mode, Your aiming is great, but your turn speed is severely bogged down. just putting a little circle on your screen before you start to do some multiplayer gives you the knowledge of where your aiming when your shooting from the hip unzoomed. Just trust me.
You'll start hitting unzoomed shotgun shots EXACTLY where you point them.

I havent played since they patched it, because my 360 has been having problems for the past month. I finally just shipped it off to Microsoft since its a free repair for everyone.


Unicedme: You must be fairly fresh to the game. When gears first came out, Frag tagging was what ppl were doing nonstop. It was rediculously easy to get kills from it. I hear now you have to be REALLY close to do it. So thats nice.
And the shotgun was REALLY iffy. You could swear you'd shot someone 4 times in the chest and taken virtually zero health off.
The chainsaw was really wierd too. You'd be holding the damn button down waiting to suck someone into a kill.. But it would only work half the time. You'd SWEAR you had locked onto them but then out of nowhere you get killed.
So im hoping they fixed that too

Im glad they patched some of it. But I havent had a chance to mess with it.
You can add me, But I wont get my 360 back for another 2-3 weeks or so.

tagging is a lot harder post patch, but its still there. the shotty has 1 hit kill power now, even without AR charged shots. the chainsaw sucks people in now, and will even overtake a coleserange shotgun blast if you're close. 2 new levels now also, i dont know if you played them or not, but they're pretty sweet too.
