Gears & Beers Fridays

Apologies for flaking. I got a invite from a buddy whom I haven't played with for a long time to rock some Cold Stream DLC on L4D2.

Ugh, I didn't get off work until 9:00 PST I guess I'll have to play games with boring married Inigo.

8:57 online and looking to start some G&B action. Who's in?

GAH. I should have checked this last night, I've been in a Gears mood lately. I started playing the first two, as well. I'm well into Gears 1 and really enjoying it!

What's the deal with some beers this eve?

I suppose there is a chance I will be on. Celebrating a friend's birthday tonight, but should be back pretty early.

Gears Clan updated. I'll be on tonight. Who's in?

Give the Skags a break this holiday weekend.

Shoot more locust, instead.

It's been too long. Lets get a game together Friday!

See you all there.

I will make the effort.

Make it Gears 2 and you have a deal.

There will be at least 1 horde game going on, Quixotic.June is wanting to take it all the way to 50 - that's what's on my schedule for Friday night.

Depending on how that goes, I may shoot someone in the face with my pink sawed off. Y'know, for old times sake.

I haven't played Horde in a while. A Friday night spent with 50 rounds of horde and polishing off a bottle of American Honey doesn't sound like a bad idea.

My Gamertag is now ccesarano. I have so many people on there I can't really tell who is GWJ and who isn't at this point, though, unless they have GWJ in their profile (or if their gamertag is the same).

I'll probably be available around 7 or 8pm EST.

Horde is supposed to start at 8pm Eastern, barring complications (or, y'know, life).

If you are interested in doing the horde stuff, PM quixotic.June with your Live info and let her know that you are wanting to take part in it.

Done.

Part of me wants to do this, and the other part of me is still angry I lost all my stats and unlocks.

I will also be joining you guys on Friday. I need to be in the party so that quixotic.June has access to the extra content. I also want to ding level 50 too.

It's likely.

Gears and Beers was taken over by Gears and Hordemode.

Define "extra content". I haven't even looked at Gears 3 since last year so if there's DLC everyone has that I missed I may have some buyin' to do (assuming my hard drive has space).

I'd be pretty upset about that, I mean, that really stinks.

It's been awhile, I'm forgetful of what all that is.

With no dead room, it's just not as fun. Also, it's not like you were going to play anyway...

There was a horde pack at some point, but I'm not sure if that was paid or free.

Who said there wouldn't be beer?

How was it that you lost your stuff?

Famous Gears 3 glitch. The game stores your level info server side while you play, so if you quit the game in the wrong way, or there's a random internet hiccup ... poof.

Was it originally intended to punish people trying to quit games early so they wouldn't get a loss on their record?

I'm 95% sure that it's just a massive screw-up. You don't punish someone for one quit by eliminating dozens upon dozens of hours of work.

Yeah, don't think it was intentional.

Also, I wish I could be there tomorrow night, but I can't

I just realized I agreed to go see Wreck It Ralph with a friend of mine tomorrow night, so I won't be joining you guys after all.

I haven't played Gears 3 in a long long time due to 2 things.

No Dead Room.

I traded it in.
