Gears of War 3 DLC Coming in November

Quote
"Taking you deeper into the fight with three explosive new maps, three new playable characters, two new weapon skins, and additional achievements worth 250 Gamerscore," Hryb wrote, "the Horde Command Pack also includes new fortification upgrades to help you mow down the Lambent and Locust threats in the fan-favorite Horde mode."

The pack will be available for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) and will download automatically for anyone who purchased a Season Pass for the game's DLC.

I'm going back to Hardc*re. It's nearly impossible to do Insane alone. It can be done, but not at the rate that I want to complete before the other games start coming out. Once I'm done with HC, I will shoot you a email if you're still up for Insane Co-op.

Well if you see me on playing campaign then it will be on insane and I have my party set to friends only so you can just hit X at the main Gears of War 3 menu and the Y to join my game.

Are you still playing through Insane on your own? Where you at in the game? Personally I'm flying through HC with ease. There is only a slight difference between Normal and HC. But the gap between HC and Insane is HUGE.

Yes the jump from HC to insane is pretty big. I haven't gotten far. I'm at the fight the fish part with the silver backs. I started it a couple days ago but haven't been back at it since then. I'm also using it as my collect the collectables I missed the first time through. Luckily in Gears 3 when you are in a co-op game and ANYONE in the group finds a collectable and picks it up everyone gets credit for it unless you've already found it.

And yeas playing through on my own. I did Gears 1 and all of what I've completed of 2 by myself on insane.

Ok so I got buy the boat deck part and am know completely screwed at the small bridge with the 2 stalks and gunkers. I can deal with one of them quickly but the other one is impossible. My team mates have stopped shooting. I mean the do asolutely nothing but dies and revive each other, no shots taken AT ALL.

uhhhh never mind I got it. I rushed the stalks and when the gunkers dropped in I pinned a frag grenade to each of them and it ended the sequence. Didn'y have to shoot the stalks or anything.

You talking about friends on your buddy list or the AI? Personally I'm flying through HC pretty fast with no resistance at all. It's pretty easy to be honest. I find that the only real challenge for me will be when I get to the final Boss fight as that one posed a real challenge for me on Normal Difficulty.

No it was the AI. They just absolutely stopped shooting. I had no ammo so I had no choice but to keep starting over because they stopped doing anything usefull.

That's weird. Have you ever had that happened to you on any other games you've played? I've never heard of AI quitting during any level of difficulty before.

Searching for the Collectibles is slowing down my forward progress down a great deal. I'm avoiding any kind of help in this department, and that includes walk-through's on YouTube. I'm finding a lot of them and it's a good feeling of accomplishment on my end. But I know I am missing a few and will probably need help picking up the stragglers. Till then, I'm on my own....literally.

Oh man! I can only guess how many Collectibles I have missed because it was buried right underneath me and I didn't know. So, I'm in the Hotel in Act 5, Chapter 3 and I'm walking down the hallway and I had to stomp on the floor to reveal stacks of money. Bah!!!

Yeah there are a couple in that hotel area like that. There was one outside where I accidentally walked over it and saw the prompt. most of the ones I've gone back and found through act 1 where pretty easy to find if you where looking. however there have been a couple that you have to look up for and possibly shoot an object to cause it to fall to you.

What the f*ck!!!

So, I'm on the final Boss fight on HC and I literally was blasting the "Killer Bee" with the Hammer Of Dawn for a good 10-15 minutes and I was asking myself, "What is going on here? It hasn't even attacked the building! I can't be THAT good!!" Everything on HC is 3 times as long for each section that needs to be complete. As soon as the Bee attacked the building, I shoo'd it off and then got swarmed by the Locust. I was too exhausted to immediately replay the Final Boss Fight again. I will try again in a little bit. But yeah, I pity Umaine when he has to go it alone on Insane by himself.
