Once I'm done with my campaign, if you're running into problems getting through it, I'm down for some co-op on the hardest of all levels.  ;D

I beat Raam on insane by myself and the GOW 3 finale is no Raam fight. However theres alot more going on and more room to roam. Co-op is definitely the way to go in this game.

I didn't notice this till now when firing up Gears 3. But when I select Campaign and I'm given the option of Standard and Arcade, I never saw the 3rd option: Coming Soon!

What's coming soon?

Welcome to "Redacted" was interesting. It reminded me of the Submarine ride at Disneyland, being on a "track" and not being able to control where I was going, but having to react to what was coming my way (missles, mines, monster-fish, etc...)

Gears Of War 3 (Epic Edition)




Having just completed Single Player Campaign, I came away very satisfied with Gears 3 as a whole. The ending took me probably 10 times to finally figure out the best way to go about killing that stupid "Killer Bee". I was getting frustrated at getting swarmed on by the invading Locust while trying to use the Hammer Of Dawn and then trying to get the Bee off the building. Once I figured it out, it was pretty simple in its execution.

I'm gearing (pun intended) up to play Hardc*re Difficulty next and then eventually Insane Difficulty;D

I think out of the 3 Gears, this one is by far my favorite of the bunch. I'm a huge fan of Gears 2 and it did have more variety of gameplay throughout, which I will give the edge to them in that department. But the graphics here are way better. So is the game play itself. And of course Horde 2.0 makes the Horde mode in Gears 2 obsolete in my eyes.

Of the 3 final Boss Fights, Gears 1 was the hardest going up against Raam. In Gears 2, it had the coolest Boss fight with the Brumak, but the ending was way too easy. Use the Hammer Of Dawn 3 x's, blow 'em up, flood city, game over. Gears 3 was a bit more challenging and more satisfying because it took work to get it done.

Now, I have plenty of achievements to unlock. That's gonna keep me busy for sure.

So, with Gears 3 out and it getting rave reviews, I'm finding it highly unlikely that this is in fact the end of the series. There's too much money to be made here and a loyal fan base unlike no other. Naw, it's coming back, but under a different banner. Gears Of War: Universe Invasion or something.  ;D

I highly recommend this one to everyone. This is a definite Buy

As for the Epic Edition that I picked up, my main motive for getting this one was for the Marcus Fenix Statue and it was well worth the price. The Cog Medal is pretty cool....and a lot heavier than I thought it would be. The Box that it comes in is well done, which itself holds all the other bonus stuff, including the game itself.

I'm skipping HC all together and going straight to insane. The Chievos are stackable so...

I've already started HC and been playing through it and surprisingly, I'm not seeing all that much difference between this and Normal/Casual. I may pull the plug and go straight to Insane myself for a bit more challenge.

Yo, Umaine. When you went through your first go around on Single Campaign, what level difficultly were you at? I started on the 2nd Level personally.

Holy crap! This is...Insane!!! Literally. I'm getting tore up from the get go. This definitely requires a different approach than the run and gun mentality. Moving along in short spurts.

My first play through was normal which is what I always play on especially when I know I'll be going back through on the harder difficulty level. I don't like my inital contact with a game to be a frustrating chore which most hardest difficulties are. I am stuck at the moment on my insane playthrough. Its the silverback section on the boat where you have to shake the big angry fish. It seems as thought the friendly AI just stops helping which is making it nearly impossible,
