The Official Gears of War 2 Catch-all

I played quite a bit this weekend and went from level 1 to level 54. How anybody had the patience to get to level 100 without xp multipliers is beyond my comprehension.

Love of the game is all I can think of.

I need to do the insane, co-op, deleted scene, and all the wingman achievements, so if anybody is down for a co-op insane run let me know!

Sure let me know and I would be up for it.

So, anybody up for a co-op run? Haven't had any luck connecting with goodjers in this game yet.

The next Gears Bonus XP weekend has been announced. Not sure what the multiplier will be, but can't wait.

Happening at the same time as Pax, so it will run Friday, September 3rd till Tuesday, September 7th.

Didn't realise what a big deal the 20xXP weekend was until after it was gone.

Well, they are dividing the number of followers on the facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/gearsofwar), by 1000, and there is NO CAP this time around. As of right now, it's at 20x. And we still have two weeks until the event.

Rod Fergusson also twittered that having your wings in Gears 2 will translate into something worthwhile in Gears 3.

Sure, I'm up for it. Friend me up or find me online whenever.

Same, but be forwarned: I am not very good.

I can attest to this: he's always running right into my chainsaw...

It's not my fault that Dizzy has a Chainsaw Magnet hidden under that bigass hat. I run into ALL chainsaws.

They're at it again...

Next multiplier amount is decided by voting in the Gamespot All Time Greatest Villian...

Just 14 more levels and I'll have my wings.

EDIT
Now it's just getting silly. 30XP if RAAM wins overall.

DOUBLE EDIT
Raam just 'creamed breen', expect an announcement on the 30XP event soon. Now we can all get our wings (for those looking for it, the completionists, and the people who want the TA ratio to plummet that little bit more).

RAAM won by just under a 1000 votes, 83,181 vs 82,251. He's up against Darth Vader next. Not sure if they'll add a potential bonus for a win there, as that could be a very hard fought battle.

No date for the next Exp event, either.

Rod(@GearsViking on Twitter) mentioned he's working on the date. I'd love to see what they offer up for a win against Vader, but I highly doubt that'll happen. Gears fans are up against Sephiroph and Vader fans for this one at the least, plus Breen fans.

Not to mention it's Darth muther-flippin' Vader. Yea, I said it.

While the extra XP will be nice I'm sure, Raam is not a great villain.

Cliffy B is rumoured to have tweeted that if RAAM takes out the whole tournament they will find a way of bringing him back in Gears 3...

All in favour of a ressurrected/zombie lambent Raam say aye.

RAAM is just some asshole who shows up to murder your people from time to time, giving the game an excuse to introduce new people.

Not a good villain.

I saw him/her/it as more of a Montgomery or Eisenhower, that sort of military leader, rather than just a squad leader. Of course, I'm reading a sh*t tonne into it all.

Either way we'll all be getting some sweet sweet XP in the very near future... Plus the dude is seriously having his ass handed to him at the moment by one tall dark and ventilated jedi

But of course; all the Gears fanz0rs deranged enough to vote for RAAM over Vader just for the XP boost already have their wings.

I wish I was going to get a chance to get my wings but I've been in such a state of moving and flux that I have no idea the next time I'll even be able to turn my 360 on.

Also RAAM has no chance against Vader.

Halloween seems to be the go, and yes TrueHeart, they're going to be messing with Hoarde again.

Not sure if this will be the entire weekend that Halloween falls on, or if it will just be the Sunday. Either way, should be fun. Will be looking for one of those boosting parties again for KotH, then I've got one less achievement to worry about, and I can go back to 'enjoying' the game.

Damn, both my xboxes are broken and I won't be picking up a slim for months. Still I like that they are doing these XP events they're pretty sweet.

I'll be doing Horde during these events. Considering I've got over a year to hit 100 I think it will all work out just fine. Hopefully they do something fun with Horde during this next event - Torque Bow Tag was tons of fun

Same here when there's a group going. Otherwise, I'll be in social warzone.

Some of the suggestions for what Halloween Horde might involve on the Gears2 forums seem interesting, ranging from pumpkin tickers to 'chainsaw only' lancer masacres...

I think you're going to like this one TrueHeart...

Hey, I just bought this for my new Xbox! I have not even taken the shrink wrap off. I never played the first one either. Who wants to indoctrinate me in the ways of horde mode?

The single-player campaign rocked. I'd recommend that, and also do the training mode for mp training. It's an excellent game, enjoy.

P.S. after you complete training mode, it lets you play any mp game type you wish against bots, and is a great way to learn.

Oooooh... so what you are saying is I would suck too bad to bother playing with. Understood!

Not really, I think he's saying most of us have moved on and are not currently playing it. It's good advice, though.
