Gears of War

I am loving this game. I am not very talented with shooters so wondering if anyone would care to play along with me on Live anytime in the future. With co-op maybe i have a better shot at finishing this game.
I am on Xbox 360 name is Kunane954

Please feel free to say Hi!

Capt, you're on my friends list. If you're up late on the West Coast, I'll send you and invite sometime (though if you're in FL, I play way too late for you).

Anyone else think the controls are a bit tough in this game? I had to play that level where you need to plug the emergence holes about 25 times before I finally beat it. I've gotten better but it usually does not take me that long to learn games. I'm happy the game got better but I was getting incredibly frustrated playing that level.

The controls are cool but the grenade toss aiming with the blue lines can be a real bitch.

You can toss nades without aiming with fairly good accuracy if the blue lines start acting up. I'm not really crazy about the way the nades are in this game in general. The grenade tag is unbalanced in multiplayer and you don't start with any grenades.

I would have rather not had the tagging ability at all and just started with 2 grenades for throwing. It would have made the already great multi even better.

Cap, I sent you a request. Did I already have you on my list? Either way I sent you one so hopefully we'll see you online.

Yeah i guess. Just the other day I was noticing how much the grenades bounce, and even more annoying, how they slide past the target in certain situations. They're ok in general though.

I miss the sticky plasma grenade from Halo

For grenade tags you just run after them once you're tagged. Fuck it. You're dead already so why not take them with you.

you can't get a kill that way, is why i don't. If I don't know they have grenades, and I get tagged, I just hit them with the butt of my gun. It slows them down where you can just stand there, and they'll blow up too.

If i know they have grenades, they're basically screwed. I wait till they are coming after me, jump straight backwards, and blow off their damn head

Whatta you talk? I've been killed that way. I tagged a guy and he dived right at me and I died with him. I know his team won with that move. I think I tired it once and it worked. I think you get a suicide but who cares.

It can be stopped but it is still somewhat unbalanced. Especially online where the connection can be less than perfect.

I have much more of a problem with the pistol melee though. It has all of the strengths of chainsaw with none of the weaknesses.

nah, if you dive into a guy who tagged you, and you both die, only the person that did the tagging gets a kill....trust me

and you're right about the melee attacks Puzznic. The same is true with the sniper rifle.

Yeah, there are a few other weapons with that stun crap. I also have a bit of a problem with an active reload sniper sometimes putting you down with a body shot. I hate when snipers are used as up close weapons.

These are all pretty small balance problems when compared to most shooters though. Especially compared to a game like Halo 2 where the whole weapon set is broken.

Hopefully they will tweak a few things with the next update.

yea, you play with a few people every now and again that will whore the crap out of the snipe rifle. Its the same with the 'nades, for me anyway. If im aware of what they are using, I act accordingly.

I guess they figure, if you got hit by a snipe, you'd be pretty mess up too

Do a lot of people still play this game? I got tired of it extremely quick...only play co-op now. Once I've finished it, I'll probably sell it.
