From what I recall, we have the free map pack, and the Fenix Rising map pack. Will the group be picking up this new announced one?

I think the bulk of the group got the Season Pass, so we will probably all have it, yeah.

Damn. I should have picked that up. I think this next bit of DLC, should I choose to buy it, will put me over the Season Pass cost.

Checking Xbox.com, the Season Pass is 2400 NerdBucks and the Raam's Shadow Pack and the Fenix Rising pack are 1200 and 800 respectively. Assuming the next map pack will be 800 NerdBucks, the Season Pass is kind of a no-brainer, right? Am I missing something?

Double post. Blargh.

That's correct. The only downside to the season pass is you need to jump into the game and queue up downloads for each of the DLC. Just make sure that after you download them that you double-check to make sure they all completed (if you see a "Download again?" option, you're good).

I do miss the download-in-the-background the non-season passers get.

Yeah, good games last night. Sorry I left so early. I was practically falling asleep. Did Gumbie ever get in?

No and it was probably for the best. I was truly sh*t faced.

GWJ Clan updated...

Don't think I can make it tonight. I am going upstate this weekend. Try to have fun without me

If the bar is fun, I won't be on. If the bar is lame, I will be on late.

I will likely be playing horde.

I plan on being on.

Not sure about tonight.

Sorry for bailing out so fast. That first match proved a little overwhelming for my gf who had never played versus before. We spent the rest of the evening covering some basic multiplayer tactics, so who knows maybe she'll be playing with the group before too long.

Marry her.

I only got a chance to play one supremely drunken game of Wingman. In which I killed Obi with a sawed off at least three times.

And I got the digger in the back on another.... And I was his teammate.

GWJ Gears clan updated...

I'm headed to Seattle this afternoon, so I will be regrettably absent from the proceedings.

I am here, getting drunker, and holding a shotgun!

I hope you guys are ready for some domination this evening.

Mass Effect 3

Want clan add!

Clan updated... We are on... Get over here!

I am popping in to make sure you guys still remember me. I'm still alive, guys.

I'll be back at some point. For now, though, I'm on team Silver Salamander.

I don't know what that means but I want no part of it.

Xbox Live Silver account. I'll be back, though, and you guys will have to put up with my terrible jokes.

Even though I took off early, I was having a really good time. Both myself and WardedSpinny were just wicked tired, so it felt like a good time to go.

One request, though: can we tone back the insane negativity when we lose a round? I know I do it plenty of times, and my kid is TERRIBLE about it, but sometimes a round just goes belly up because the other team is really gelling, and we should be able to appreciate that. There are times when a stomping isn't any fun, but I felt that this past week even the curb-stomps were fun rounds, and it gets old hearing nothing but complaints.

I need some Gears in my life tonight. And, possibly, some beers.

I may join after some Hunger Games and beers myself.

I'm a big maybe.

I will be on for a little.

I miss this but without the "dead room" it's just not the same for me.

Hm. We've all been kind of sad about that recently... anyone want to do a throwback Gears 2 night sometime soon?
