Okay, I was playing Horde 2.0 with 4 other players and we get to and complete Wave 14 and then when Wave 15 rolls around, the other 4 players dropped out leaving me to battle everyone and everything. This was the scariest and most exhilarating online experience I've ever had. I'm damn proud to have completed Wave 15 all by myself. Having said that, it sucks being the only player on the map. I left after that.

Oh well........

I figured out why the other 4 players dropped out during the game. It had to do with my 2 Day Gold pass expiring right in the middle of the gameplay and during the little breather in between Wave 14 and Wave 15 my membership reverted back to Silver.

Ugh. I went from the best team I've been a part of that actually works as a TEAM, watching each other's backs and staying in tight, closed formations to the worst team I had the misfortune of being part of this morning. I wanted to get some Horde stuff in before work and the team I was stuck with...SUCKS! What's mind blowing is that the other 4 players were around the 15-20 Rank/Level. And yet everyone couldn't have been more clueless in how they went about playing Horde.

Every player went off on their own, to the opposite ends of the map and all I could hear on the mic was "revive me". There was no team here. Just individual players wanting to do their own thing. And on top of that, I was the only one fortifying our fort. No one else did sh*t. To say I'm a bit miffed is an understatement.

So far, based on the Bosses I have encountered, I'd have to say my favorite Boss Fight during Horde 2.0 is the Brumak. It is awesome!!! The Reavers are way too easy to take down.

So, I played a ton of online Xbox MP (Horde 2.0) within the first week of release. Doing so supposedly would net you a Golden Lancer and Hammerburst Skin, but I can't find it anywhere within my options. I don't think it worked for me.

Umaine, did you get yours?

From what I have read, all that is required is that you play at least 1 online match within the first week of release, which clearly you and I have met that requirement.

After diving head first into online play with Horde 2.0, I'm just NOW starting on single campaign mode on Normal Difficulty. I love it so far.

I finished the campaign last night and missed a TON of the collectables. The good thing about GOW3 coop unlike in the previous 2 if one of your partners finds a collectable you get credit for it. I'll probably start my..... :::::: sigh ::::: insane run through tomorrow.

You have to complete H*rdcore to unlock Insane right? Or does completing Casual unlock it?
