Is there any way to pull up how many kills you have with each weapon in ranked play? I know I'm nowhere near 100 with any of them, but I'd like to at least be able to track my stats and see where I stand.

It's in the leaderboards section somewhere, I could tell you exactly where it was if I where at home with the game on.

However...it doesn't give you the stats for every weapon.

I've also heard that if you're playing Ranked and someone quits.....your points will be recorded on the leaderboard, but apparently they will not count towards your acheivements.

For instance it took me 106 kills to get the "Frag" acheivement because six of those kills occurred during a match where a player quit.

No, but I think it ends with a counter clockwise swirl.

Re: Gears of War

so, i finally got used to the movements and such and i love the ambience and the music that plays and the Ultimate Edition (not sure if they remastered, but i'm sure they did) looks gorgeous.

But, does it get any harder?

i play on normal. that is usually a pretty decent difficulty level for most games, not too hard, but not easy either. i'm in Act 3, chapter 3 or something, in the sewers of a bldg. and i kill some stuff, but with squad mates they take out half and maybe i take out another half or less and there hasn't even been mobs of enemies. some of those glowing creatures come in packs and the Kryll, but the aliens with guns are so few and far between and have not changed in difficulty yet or at all if that's the case. and as long as you take cover you're fine. i fought a few different creatures, but nothing overwhelmingly difficult. no boss or anything i can recall.

does it get harder? are the rest of the games similar, kill some stuff, talk to whoever on the comm to get direction, see a cutscene, rinse repeat?

mind you, i'm not at all hating this game at all. as mentioned everything works so well together as a game, just not the difficulty level. and yes, i know i can play on hardcore, but i don't think i would survive that. i know i played a little of Gears 2 and remember it was much more difficult, with more enemies and think that was mainly solo, unless i am mis-remembering. anyway...

Re: Gears of War

The final boss battle is the only reason why I never finished the game on the highest difficulty. Fuck that guy!

That was definitely one of those OMG moments when I finally beat that with someone on Co-op online. Think it took us about 2 hours to finally beat him. We were going NUTS to put it lightly.

Re: Gears of War

ugh! really? two hours and there was 2 of you? i don't stand a chance then. i'm on Act V: Chapter 2, maybe. i know only a few more to go. it didn't get any harder really on normal, same ole thing throughout the game. don't get me wrong, i really like the game. once i got the hang of duck and cover, then shoot, it was pretty easy. we'll see what comes next, but def. look forward to it. have Gears 2 set to go after...

And my god is this linear. I like linear don’t get me wrong, but let me get over some rubble or break a window or something. And more than just finding dog tags. There not even a challenge to find. Go around 1 corner that leads to no where and there it is.

do they go more into the history of the "Fenix Estate" and his father and all that or is that later games?

Doing it on Normal you'll be fine. That took me maybe 3 or 4 tries by myself and then I beat it. We were talking about on INSANE mode. Died way too many times to count because the whole end only takes like an actual 4 minutes or so to beat.

Re: Gears of War

Ah. Feel better. Looking forward to 2. Does that just improve and expand on this one? And then 3 following it? How was 4?

Less of a horror feel. Heavier emphasis on massive, cinematic setpieces. Significantly easier, at least on the default difficulty. (Your teammates can revive you in the sequels.) I've been participating in a full series playthrough discussion on another forum, and basically everyone agrees that 2 and 3 are a considerable improvement over the first game (though it's a bit more up in the air if people prefer 2 or 3. Personally, I'm 2>3>1). 4 tends to be shrugged off as a very safe sequel, and people tended to not be wild about the way it incorporated Horde mechanics (the countdown timer, deciding where to put turrets and stuff, etc.) into the campaign. I had a blast with 4, but it was only the second Gears game I played, and I haven't gone back to it yet after binge-playing the first 3 in the series.

Re: Gears of War

nearing end. just killed Brumack or the electricity rather. he was a son of a bitch considering my AI partner kept getting killed instantly and he only attacked me until i could, if i could, revive. still not as challenging as i would have liked, but i did like game thus far overall. looking forward to 2 right after. then maybe 3 and tide me over till the great Fall FPS releases...

Re: Gears of War

...and finished. pretty satisfying overall. RAAM was an SOB to kill, but once figured out torque bow to kill, pretty simple. Kryll didn't even bother me if i was in coverage. he just stayed in one spot one time and that was it. would have liked a little more of a challenge, but still very good. didn't know who that Queen was. sure didn't look Locust, but jumped into the first mission of 2 and she narrates the beginning, so i am sure i will find out soon enough. nice little odyssey so far...
