I'll rebuy Gears 2 or 1 if we can get GnB back up and running. It's been too long since I murdered you dicks.

I haven't looked, but I'm pretty sure I have it. I should be able to be on.

I sold mine but I can buy it for $20 on games for demand and download it.

Just be aware of all the patching that could be required for anyone that has purged from their system.

yeah gonna update/download DLC now

Do any of you guys have decent pc's? Gears 1 on PC is fantastic 60fps goodness, it looks so much better than the 360 version it feels like a new game. It would be awesome if people from Gears and Beers had it. It's games for windows live so invites and messages and what not still work the same. It's been around long enough now you don't need a monster pc to run it.

I had forgotten it was even out on PC. I'd pick it up but $20 is a little steep for me. I'll keep an eye for a sale though.

So how many we got for tonight? Starting around 9est?

I'm downloading Gears 2 maps, now.

ok so the showing wasn't great for this week. How about we try again upcoming Friday? Start at 8pm EST so everyone knows when to be there?

Yeah, I got finished downloading all the old Gears 2 maps and found that NO ONE WAS ONLINE!

Anyway, here was the Epic forums moderator statement about the Dead Room that made me lose interest in Gears 3 and the future of Gears online for us.

Hey guys.

I regret to inform you that this feature has been submitted to the devs as an official feature request but it has been denied. Epic programmers are far busier now with announced and unannounced projects than when Gears 3 was being developed and there just isn't the time to put towards this feature. I tried to campaign hard for this, citing this amazing thread and everything, but alas it isn't meant to be.

If and when there is another Gears game, if I am still here, I will try to push for this feature again.

Thanks for all the enthusiasm and dedication in trying to get this added. I personally appreciate it.

I'm downloading Gears 2 now. I should definitely be around on Friday or even sooner if people want to play. Pretty excited. DON'T LET ME DOWN, YOU'VE HEARD ME SWEAR BUT YOU'VE NEVER HEARD ME CRY!

I am down for this.

I am down for this as well, I will redownload gears 2.

Sorry if there was some confusion: I was always planning on it being this coming Friday for me, not the past one.

IT'S TONIGHT BITCHES!! LETS GET IT ON WITH THE DEAD ROOM GONG!!

...

I'll hopefully be on, it may be after you guys are already drunk though.

Maybe next week, at best, I'll get some intermittent Tomb Raider-ing done tonight.

I haven't started my XBox in forever. I got the flashing red ring and thought I was SOL. Luckily the AV cable was just unplugged

Now it's time to go through the updates. I can't wait for better Bing integration!

It's on!!! I'm online an awaiting challengers!!

I am downloading updates.

I hope to be on soon but it's downloading and not sure how long it will take. hopefully next week.

It told me I needed downloadable content to join your game. I need to redownload all of my map packs, as the originals are on my dead Xbox.

Game just broke up... Looks like done for the night. Sorry we missed you!! Send us a message next time and we'll go back to old maps to get you in. Everyone agreed we have to get back to weekly games. See you next time!!

Ok, I think I got it all. I should be good for next time.

Good times last night.

Even the pub matches were fun. All the super good people seem to have left for greener pastures.

I hope we can get some more involved next time.

Anyone up for some gears tonight? We can give the old girl (any vintage) a sendoff before judgement.

Radical Ans, quixotic.June, and myself will be finishing the Gears 3 campaign this evening. Radical hasn't played beast horde or multiplayer at all for all I know. With luck, Mejwellis will join us as well.
