Gears Of War-the online experience

Im sure people on here have tried the online gaming on the Xbox360, Gears Of War.

Can you tell me if its possible to play people of similar ability to me on there? If so, how? I keep getting a real pasting.

(I am poor at the game though)

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

huth for the xbox online gamers out there!

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 25/7 22:05
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Tunstall asked a similar question the other day. It is really hard playing online - people have been playing the game solidly since it's release and are really good. You will get better though with practice.

What really helped me (and I'm still pretty rubbish) was to play against a mate of similar ability in a private game 1v1. You get to know the maps, and where the weapons are, plus you have a bit of a chance without worrying that someone takes you out with a sniper rifle from 10 miles away. If you want I'll organise some 2v2 private games between me, you, tunstall and my mate. I do usually beat my mate, but I really am not very good at all.

My gamertag : bailster

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

hey, that'd be good

I think I will astound you with my mediocrity!

When do you go online to play?

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Like any xbox live game, just keep practicing, get tips from other people.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 25/7 22:30
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I usually am online from 5pm - 8pm, but when the missus is out I'm usually on a lot longer. Friday is going to be my next full night on Live if you fancy it then?

Believe me, you won't be outclassed. The only reason I beat my mate is because I tried to play public matches and got half decent at staying alive for longer than 30 seconds - I'm still a rubbish shot!!!

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 25/7 22:34
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Bernie> Cool. Would you mind sending me a 'friend' invite from your 360 please?.
Sounds like you're in the same boat as me having to wait for the bird to go out before getting a good go on Live!

I'll be online on Friday from about 5 then. Keeping my eyes peeled...

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 25/7 22:39
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Ok mate, sounds good. I've sent you a friends request. I've also mentioned it to my mate and I'll message tunstall as well.

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 25/7 22:40
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

nice one. Ill look out for you on Friday.

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 25/7 22:48
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I dont know if this matters, but I assume everyone has the latest downloadable maps etc? I have,anyway.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 25/7 23:14
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Good point mate - I don't have them. I'll see about getting those.

tunstall Posted on 26/7 7:34
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

cheers for that lads

unfortunately im going back to work this morning

and i'll be off xbox live for about 5 weeks

we will have to get something organised when i get back though?

i expect you all to be crack marksmen when i get back and be capable of wiping the floor with me

take it easy - and keep practising!

ps - im still rubbish at it, but slowly improving

oh, gamertag: borokish

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Thats a shame tunstall - you're on my friends list so I'll keep an eye out for you - are you away for 5 weeks (I seem to remember from another thread)?

G_C - I say we keep this thread huthed to see if anyone else on here is relatively new to the game and fancies playing on Friday night. I messaged my mate and he is up for it, just checking with him that he'll be on Friday night.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 26/7 12:14

Huth - Anyone up for some laid back GoW sessions tomorrow night?

What time tomorrow?. Not played Gears for months so should be good for a laugh

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 26/7 16:48
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Hi Simon, you're welcome to join us, providing you're not too good for us! ha ha. As mentioned earier on in this thread, I/we'll be online like a lamb to the slaughter tomorrow from about 5pm.

Simon1 Posted on 26/7 17:57
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I'm certainly not that good. Cannot even remember the buttons at present. LOL. Not sure I can make it for 5. Might make it just after 6 though. Anyway, i'll check first.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 27/7 8:23
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

G_C, Simon

That sounds good for tonight, I will be on around 7ish. I'm still waiting to hear from my mate, but he usually gets on for 8pm.

Can both of you make 8pm onwards?

Whats your gamertag Simon?

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 27/7 10:52
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Update :

My mate will be on a bit later tonight (9pm), but I've also had a FR from Willow1976 (not sure of user name on here) who may also join us for a game.

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 27/7 11:28
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Hi- 8pm should be okay for me. I 'look forward' to being target practise for you all from then onwards!

Does anyone know Simon1's gamertag?

trodbitch Posted on 27/7 12:13
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

There's a list on this board somewhere mapping fmttm names to live names. I probably won't be on until 8-ish so no worries if you are up and running by then. Haven't played online for a long time, even longer since I've played gears so will probably get murdered!

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 27/7 12:15
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

It's no problem if we've started and you fancy a game. If you get online and want to jump in our game just send me a short message and I'll invite you.

But you should probably know i havnt played gears in ages or ever played it online. I will be the whipping boy

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 27/7 17:14
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

No probs Simon - I'll send you an FR for future games.

Boro Owl - what's your gamertag mate? I really don't think you'd be outclassed.

Simon1 Posted on 27/7 17:44
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Bernies_right_boot, F R already sent to you.

Has anyone else got Bomberman Live??. It's a great MP game, well worth the 800 points if anyone is thinking of getting it.

Boro_Owl Posted on 27/7 17:49

B_R_B - its Tomdoodle.

Boro_Owl Posted on 27/7 17:50
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

When are you guys online? G_C could you just add me into the game if you do play?

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 27/7 18:24
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Boro_Owl - 8pm is good for G_C and myslef - is it ok for you? My mate will join us at 9 and trod said 8 is good also.

P.S I want a gamerpic like yours.

You all have headsets right?

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 27/7 19:43

Yes mate I have a headset.

Just to quote Boro_Owl prior to the game -

"But you should probably know i havnt played gears in ages or ever played it online. I will be the whipping boy"

Yeah right mate - Tom "sniperRifle" Doodle.

I'm going to start telling people I haven't played before too.

I am Tomdoodle trod

And I seriously hadnt played before

trodbitch Posted on 27/7 21:48
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Bernie, as for the XNA tutorial, I did a rough draft but took it down as I'm not too sure what angle to approach it from. I was going to explain every little thing along the way but I thought that was going to be too, well - boring!

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 27/7 21:48
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Bernies = bailster
BoroOwl = TomDoodle
G_C = DarkHorse
Trodbitch = cannontrodder

Good game though lads, I really enjoyed it. If we get Simon and tunstall on one night as well I reckon we could make a regular thing of it.

Boro_Owl Posted on 27/7 21:50
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Yeah it was a good few games. Tell your mate to get a mic, if Simon is up for it we could have a good 3 on 3.

Can't I be Tom "Hammer of Dawn" doodle?

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 27/7 21:51
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

As for the tutorial, would you mind sending me the rough draft that explains everything. I've got a bit of programming experience, but nothing with C#. I don't expect to create anything spectacular, but I do like to dabble and it looks interesting.

As long as you don't mind I'll send my email address via Live.

trodbitch Posted on 27/7 21:52
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I prefer Tom "cut in half by the cannon" Doodle, but 'twas not to be!

We'll see, cannon "executed with a pistol" trodder

trodbitch Posted on 27/7 21:57
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Bernie, I've published it again. All the first article does is tell you what XNA is, how to install it and how it fits in to the PC and 360 world. I'll try to get the next bit that actually shows you some code done over the next few days.

trodbitch Posted on 27/7 21:57
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

We won't talk about the pistol again!

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 27/7 21:58

As a non-260 owner I'm going to avoid the Xbox Live chat and mention this.


Anybody seen the new gamepay trailer for Resident Evil 5 on 360?

Looks brilliant.

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 27/7 22:02

that was good! Sorry I missed the last round though. Would be good to deffo do that again some time

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 27/7 22:03

Is the Resi Evil video available on 'Live' Brick?

Brick_Tamland Posted on 27/7 22:08

Check out ign.com, the 360 page.


I'm just watching it now.

Yes mate, we'll have to sort out a rematch some time soon.

As for Resi Evil - I have seen the trailer and it looks brilliant. There are a lot of quality games for the 360 in the coming months. Am I right in thinking RE5 is due mid 2008?

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 27/7 22:20
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I love the Resi Evil series. I used to play it loads when I had a PS2.

You're right about there being loads of good games coming out on the 360 soon. Halo, Resi Evil, Silent Hill(is that coming out soon?), the next PES/FiFA games look brill too.

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 27/7 22:22
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Fallout 3- have you seen that trailer? That looks like it may be good too, made by the same people who did the excellent Oblivion.

Its due out next year tho, so a while to wait yet.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 27/7 22:42
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I've not played Oblivion, I'm not usually into RPGs, but so many people rate it. Is it accessible to a "non-RPG-er"? It can be picked up pretty cheap these days.

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 27/7 22:44
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Im not into RPG's either. It is a brilliant game and I was addicted to it for some time after getting it!

Boro_Owl Posted on 28/7 17:29
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Quick hoof.

Anyone up for a game tonight? I have nothing to do until 11.

Boro_Owl Posted on 28/7 17:30
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Also for the list above -

Assassins Creed, Mass Effect, and Bioshock.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 28/7 17:53
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Now then Boro Owl -I'd love to play tonight, but the missus has control of the TV on Saturdays.

I'm on Live most nights though so we should def try and organise another game for this week. What nights are good for the others?

Bioshock looks awesome, but I am most looking forward to Assasins Creed - have you seen the stage demo on gamespot.com?

Boro_Owl Posted on 28/7 17:56
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I'm free most nights, depending on the job I end up with that could change though. If I'm not free I'll be able to let you know with a message or something.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 28/7 18:01
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Ok mate - I spoke to my friend and he is going to get a headset to join in the banter.

I wish I could play tonight, it was a real laugh last night. Keep this hoofed and maybe a few of the others might be able to play.

Boro_Owl Posted on 28/7 18:06
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Thats good .

I tried a couple of player games today. I did ok, but after getting called a "noob" by about 5 10 year olds I decided to stopl playing

Simon1 Posted on 28/7 18:09
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I'll be free around 9.30 tonight and tomorrow. i'm also free most nights although on night shifts monday-thursday next week.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 28/7 18:15
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

If you get called a noob - imagine what the rest of us would get called!!!

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 28/7 18:19
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Hi Simon - great, I'll keep an eye out for you. I will try and get on tomorrow early evening for an hour or so.

If you play Boro_Owl tonight - just don't pop your head out for too long when he's got the sniper rifle - you've been warned.

Boro_Owl Posted on 28/7 18:36
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Same with the big pistol

Boro_Owl Posted on 29/7 10:36
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I might be able too, but I'm seeing the simpsons movie tonight. Still havnt decided on the times yet though.

I'll hoof this up sometime later on and let you know.

njtraf Posted on 29/7 13:14
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I played GOW online for about 2 months playing as many nights as possible and got pasted every time, not good.

Does anyone still play Halo2 online? (if you played it at all)

I used to play it on my old Xbox and then i played occassionally on the 360 and pasted most people then stopped playing when i bought Oblivion which has just demolished what social life i had!

Started playing again in the last few weeks at work against the Aircrew (4 on 4 through a 360 system link-up) and absolutely demolished them and remembered just how good Halo 2 is.

Anyway, to my original point, anyone know when Halo 3 is released?

Boro_Owl Posted on 29/7 13:39
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

njtraf -
I would play Halo 2 online but because I have a Hi-Def monitor I can't.

You should be fine on Gears, none of us are very good .

And Halo 3 is released September 26th. I have it pre-ordered and will get it the day it comes out.

Boro_Owl Posted on 29/7 16:20
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Hoof tastic.

Trod and Simon, you up for this? Gibsons_Chequebook said he would, so we have 4 players already.

trodbitch Posted on 29/7 16:32
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I'm not sure, I'm on dad duty tonight so it'll be after the little one goes to bed. If someone is going to host the game, can they post on here which live name it will be under or at least send me an invite and I'll join if I can.

PS: I've never played this before.

Boro_Owl Posted on 29/7 16:34
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I was being honest trod ...

I had nearly completed the single player on insane though... maybe should have mentioned that If you're online then we'll send an invite

trodbitch Posted on 29/7 16:49
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

"I had nearly completed the single player on insane though"

Minor detail!!!!!

That was about 6 months before I went online though!

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 29/7 18:11
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Hi all- Could be a little tricky for me to join in tonight. If I can I'll join in. I wont be able to get online til after 9 tonight - Do send an invite though, 'The Doodle' needs as many heads to snipe and hit as possible, eh Tom?

Boro_Owl Posted on 29/7 18:15
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I was only alright at sniping G_C

I'll be gone by 9 anyway, seeing the Simpsons film then. Hope its good.

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Sorry about last night lads - we went to Ripon for the day and my car broke down!!! So at 7pm last night I was sat in the car waiting for the AA (don't get me started about these robbing gets. AA breakdown = con). Anyway I got in at 11:30pm.

So apologies as is sounds like there might have been a few people up for this. Lets keep this hoofed.

Boro_Owl Posted on 30/7 8:15
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Don't worry about it b_r_b - When I was on at 7 nobody else was, and I just joined a random player match...

Ended up top of the leaderboard after 3 rounds in a 10 round match... bring it on

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 30/7 9:49
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I don't call anyone "Noobs" its as nerdy as you can get ffs

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 30/7 10:27
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Same here trod - I was speaking to my mate that didn't have the headset and obviously our voices were coming out of his Tv speakers. He said that at the end of each round there was just a roar of laughter booming out of his TV.

Boro_Owl Posted on 30/7 11:31

It was funny stuff

The pistol trod... the pistol

Oh, and what is, and I quote, a "noob" ?

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 30/7 13:28
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

A "Noob" is short for newbie (beginner) and is what you can expect to be called when playing Gears of War against American teenagers.

Hmmmm.....I tend to be called......"other things" by Americans/teenagers when playing GoW online.

More like 'useless' or 'loser'.

I was told by a 12 year old that I "fail at life".

It was very satisfying chainsawing him in the next round though

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Can say I am pretty alright at Gears Of War :D

Don't always get pasted. Try playing a game with people you know. If you can talk to them you will find it is alot easier to win games because you can actully use 'tactics'. Even though there are not many the ones that you do know how to use become very handy such as flanking etc.

Gamer tag: cyrus something

Weird tag I know..

Might be a bit desperate and sad but if you want help with blind firing with a shotgun, get a lancer out and hold down the left trigger than get a bit of bluetack and put it in the aim. Wulah.

Not a bad game tonight, was better when we had 3 on 2, hopefully we'll get lucky and have a 6-8 player match

You say that as if its a bad thing .

Nah we stopped at about 9, bailster beat me 3-1 one on one I bet he's been practicing

Still managed to stick a grenade on him though

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 30/7 21:30
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Yeah good game tonight, we really need to get us all on at the same time. That would be quality.

Me and Tom had some 1v1 games at the end and he managed to kill me when he was down. I was casually going over to chainsaw his head off, but little did I know he'd already hit me with the torque bow and I blew up before I got to him

Does anyone play Halo 2 on line? Ive got GOW but I just couldnt get into it, It's all a bit grey and difficult. Plus I think Halo is just fantastic. I have the same problem with being shtt though and the americans shouting 'Yo NiggaBee-yatch I Is gonna kick yo assMooFo' at the tops of their fooking voices gets irritating pretty quickly. It's great when you hear a familiar Northern Voice on there but it doesnt happen very often.

Boro_Owl Posted on 30/7 21:35
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Oh yeah, that was good I didnt know I did that, I was suprised as you

I also liked it when you were in cover, stood up to get the sniper for a split second and I took your head off, that wasnt half bad

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 30/7 21:47

On the first or second game if I remember correctly - I really should know better than sticking my head up when you're on a level with the sniper rifle!!!

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Simon- I've got the downloads, and have tried Bullet Marsh which is quite good. Also I think there are different game types that I am not sure you can have unless you get the maps. Might be wrong there though.

Cyrus2006 Posted on 31/7 18:17
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Gridlock all the way. Simple map, very open and very easy to learn. Mansion used to be my favourite but getting the boomshot is very annoying because you could get flanked easily >.<

I think Escalation is quite good too. Torque Bow <3

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 31/7 20:27
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

It was a glitch in the game, not my fault. It was destined for someone's head, but a car door (that I was hiding behind) got in the way!!!

I think we've got to have one match all boomshot. Just for the laugh. Does everyone agree that I take out all pistols, magnums etc and replace with snipers and torque bows?

edit : just seen trod's post and that's what I was getting at. We need everyone to agree on what weapons we're putting in. If not I say we leave it default.

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Give me 10 mins to post up all the options and then people can have a good look/think about it.

PS: if you do a perfect active reload, you should be able to kill with the sniper on body shots - or so I've heard.

I'm happy with any weapons by the way

Cyrus2006 Posted on 31/7 20:45
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

That is what people who cannot get headshots do. Waste a bullet and get an active reload. Downs them instantly wherever you hit them.

Boro_Owl Posted on 31/7 20:48
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Cyrus, waste a bullet, then just keep pressing B. You will only waste one bullet and as soon as you see someone, active reload and down.

Never tried it but watched a guy doing that for ages. He got roadee-shotgunned.

trodbitch Posted on 31/7 20:57

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 31/7 21:06
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Pistols swapped for snipers and hammerbursts swapped for torque bows?

Then an all out boomshot at some point.

trodbitch Posted on 31/7 21:14
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Yeah def get rid of the hammerburst - like a lancer but with no chainsaw. Please lose the pistols also as I cannot handle getting gibbed by one again.

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

'gibbed'

Cyrus2006 Posted on 31/7 21:16
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Boomshot/Torque bow/Sniper for Grenades/Hammerburst/Pistols/Hammer of dawn

Or just pure Boomshot :D

Boro_Owl Posted on 31/7 21:17
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Why do you call it "gibbed"?

You should call it "Doodled"

trodbitch Posted on 31/7 21:22
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

All for some boomshot carnage but we've got differing levels of experience in this game. Problem is, ask anyone who is the best and they all say they are rubbish - shortly before doing a blind head-shot on you through smoke from the other side of the map.

So we need to start with a 'normal' game - keep the boomshots and snipers OUT just to get everyone accustomed (to killing me) - a warm up if you will. Then throw in the boomshots and other big guns for a bit of an extended period. I'd like to see a bit more of the maps so maybe fewer rounds?

Also, if possible can we have everyone on one side onto boro_owl/tomdoodle - let him have his pistol by all means but we'll all have boomshots. I'm sure he'll see the funny side!!!!

trodbitch Posted on 31/7 21:24
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Gibbed isn't too accurate. 'Gibs' is the name for the body parts that are left when you pop someone. I do believe at one point last week I was able to boot bailster's gibs around for a while which tickled me!

Boro_Owl Posted on 31/7 21:27
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I think it was last night, I sprinted up to bailster, shotguned him point blank and then just rolled through the "gibs". Priceless .

And trod, willow (willie_shafter) and Cyrus are both better than me.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 31/7 21:32
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Right, add trod to the list of people I'm going to gib on Friday night. Also on the list are G_C and Boro_Owl for the senseless mocking of my "creative" boomshot.

Boro_Owl Posted on 31/7 22:10
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I'll be able to talk to you when, after all the "keep Owl and Cyrus apart" talk, we get taken out by snipers in the first 30 seconds

Boro_Owl Posted on 31/7 22:13
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

My tip is that when using the lancer in cover always crouch and go for the knees. You'll be a smaller target and will get them down midway through the clip. Then you can just finish them off as you like.

Also that standing still, out in the open while I have the sniper rifle is a good idea

--- Post edited by Boro_Owl on 31/7 22:15 ---

Cyrus2006 Posted on 31/7 22:13
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Tips..Mhm

#1 - My most vital tip. Shotgun battles are probally the most occuring battle you will have on Gears Of War and people waste time when they aim. Get something sticky [Small bit of paper with tape, bluetack] and aim with the lancer and put the sticky item in the crosshair so you will not have to aim [Might get in the way of headshots with sniper]

#2 - Use the cover. Running to cover is desperate and when using it is important that the cover you are using is not easy to flank or they will have you dead easy.

#3 - Teamwork. Use communication and split of with 2 and 2. Or go in with all 4 to one spot. Communication is vital.

Cyrus2006 Posted on 31/7 22:14
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Sniper? I am always a victim of the chainsaw unfortanately =/

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 31/7 22:18
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

What is the lancer? Is that the thing with the chainsaw on the end?

Looking around and use the cover? Neither of those I do very well!

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 31/7 22:19

communication guys! Theres no 'i' in team etc etc.

We've all seen the flock of seagulls/geese video right?!

Boro_Owl Posted on 31/7 22:20
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Yeah thats the lancer I think.

I mean the chainsaw gun thingy anyway

Cyrus2006 Posted on 31/7 22:20
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I said the lancer for tip #1 because it has a smaller crosshair than the shotgun. After you have got the automatic crosshair in the centre the shotgun battles should become very easy.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 31/7 22:26
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

My tip is be very careful when aiming with powerful weapons. When using the boomshot ensure that the target is well above the object you are hiding behind. Failing to do so can lead to an untimely death and you being mocked by your peers.

trodbitch Posted on 31/7 22:31

Erm..I doubt that anyone would be interested but channel 279 on Sky is all about Xbox 360 gaming and hosts these competitions on all games with some of the best clans/players fighting it out and at 12 is a Gears Of War clan fight on this show so if you want to see some good players then watch it. Could learn a thing or two.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 31/7 22:43

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I watched the first 10 mins and it was different to the one I saw a while back. I know it's nerdy, but I did Sky Plus it as well.

They played Execution mode which is like warzone, but you can't kill a downed enemy from far away. You have to be up close and stomp them or chainsaw them (or execute them with a pistol Boro_Owl). It means that it gets quite tactical because if you stick in 2's there's a more of a chance for your teammate to revive you.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 1/8 19:07
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Just watched that XLeague TV GoW match and def picked up a few tips.

1) The pistol is a valid weapon - I never used it, but these guys used it regularly for distance shooting because of it's better aim.

2) I learned I really don't know the maps as well as I thought. I often follow the same path over and over whereas they were taking different routes (that I wasn't aware of) and stopping in places that are good vantage points and have good cover.

3) The Y button - I completely forgot about using this to find out where your team mates are.

I'm going to watch it again.

Is everyone still up for a blast on Friday?

I am.

Cyrus2006 Posted on 2/8 9:48
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Looking forward to it =D

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 2/8 9:52
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I'm looking forward to it as well.

I watched the rest of the xleaguetv show and that Infused Gaming make it look so easy. They made the team they were playing look rubbish, but I bet even they are quality.

Boro_Owl Posted on 2/8 10:03
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Still up for it

trodbitch Posted on 2/8 10:20
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

*lovingly sharpens chainsaw*

Yup, got it all planned out, what time are we looking at?

Also, has anyone got/played rainbow 6?

Boro_Owl Posted on 2/8 10:23
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Its my favourite game trod .

If you're up for a game I'll play

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 2/8 10:55
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

** practices disassembling and reassembling lancer **

** nods proudly as he beats his best time (again) **

I think I'll be online from 7pm onwards on friday. I've also got Rainbow 6, but not really got into it yet. The missus has been playing it loads though and completed it the other night. She was gutted because she liked it that much. She started the terrorist hunt mode - How hard is that by the way!! I had a few goes, but died quite quickly.

Boro_Owl Posted on 2/8 11:09
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

If your missus wants a co-op terrorist hunt I'd be up for it . Terrorist hunt on single player is a bitch too, I couldnt do it, but co-op i'm fine.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 2/8 11:13
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Yeah - she said the other night that she wanted to go on Live, but i said she couldn't use my profile - . I think she's going to get one though. She got through the single player without too much problem.

I might try and get into it - I did enjoy the few terrorist hunts I tried last night because they were harder. I'm also getting used to the cover system more, I think I told you the other night that I struggled with that at first.

Boro_Owl Posted on 2/8 12:12
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Would she have to pay for her account to go online too?

trodbitch Posted on 2/8 12:13
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

She would indeed. PS, we are running out of reply buttons.

edit: actually, I'm not sure she would need to. Anyone?

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

New reply button too. Top banana

B_R_B, if you give me your ladies account I'll happily have a game with her, I love 6 vegas me .

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 2/8 12:31
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

She has a profile on the 360, but no live account. I could get her to upgrade to a a Silver account and then choose the free trial and that would give a months on Live.

I'll do that this evening. Be warned though, she has a habit to scream when she's surprised by a terrorist. If you're using headsets, keep the volume low.

Boro_Owl Posted on 2/8 12:35
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

b_r_b

I think she can still use it. My brother has a seperate account (that he never uses) and I just went one that while my account was connected to xbox live, and his seemed connected. i didnt try and join a game though... maybe he was just on a silver membership.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 2/8 12:45
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

B_O - that's an idea, I think she would should up as bailster(1) i.e my guest. I'll set her up with a free month on live and if that doesn't work, I'll try what you said.

trodbitch Posted on 2/8 13:06
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

"she has a habit to scream when she's surprised by a terrorist"



You will def need your own sub for a new gamertag. You need to pay MS to change the gamertag once you have already subscribed. if you could just create a new tag, there'd be no point in them doing that.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 2/8 13:12
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I was under the impression you could have up to 3 trials on any console? I may be wrong here, but I thought I read it somewhere.

We both have profiles on the 360, but only mine is xbox live enabled, hers is just a local profile. I thought I could upgrade her local profile to a silver membership (free), then it should ask if I want to start a one month trial of Gold. If it doesn't ask about the free trial I may have a 48 hour code knocking about somewhere for her to use.

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 2/8 13:21
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Yup, still up for getting a good kicking online for a while.

I'll probably be on at around 7.30 tomorrow night.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 2/8 19:21
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Yeah, it worked - I upgraded her account to Live (Silver) and she qualified for the free Gold trial.

She's sent you an FR Tom. God help you going into combat with my missus. Don't forget the earplugs.

Boro_Owl Posted on 2/8 19:22
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Alright b_r_b .

When is she likely to be on? I could probably go on for about 20 minutes now?

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 2/8 19:28
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Tom you just killed my missus!!!!

Boro_Owl Posted on 2/8 19:38
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Thats the first time someones ever said that to me.

She's dead good at hiding though, only found her 3 times.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 2/8 19:41
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

- she does want to play co-op, but is a bit overwhelmed at the moment about how good everyone is.

Boro_Owl Posted on 2/8 19:42
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Co-op and team sharpshooter is the best place to get good, because that way you can just blame it on everyone else

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 2/8 19:53
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

She's just got her first kills, and she's not screaming as much which is good.

Boro_Owl Posted on 2/8 19:54
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Sorry if I made your missus scream bailster

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 2/8 19:57
re: Gears Of War-the online experience


trodbitch Posted on 2/8 22:36
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Nothing sweeter than your first online 'kill'!!! Even if your stats say "1 kill 236 deaths".

Just been on rainbow 6 single player and even when you keep getting killed at one section, it's top fun doing it over and over trying different tactics. First thing I'll do when I've completed this is start again - sign of a TOP game.

PS: I *could* hear a faint scream, I'm sure of it.

Boro_Owl Posted on 3/8 1:09
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Trod, would you be up for a quick game with me and bailster's lass?

(The original sentance was "would you fancy a quickie with me and bailsters missus?" but I didnt want any misinterpretations )

trodbitch Posted on 3/8 8:37
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Yes, but I seriously don't know what I am doing regarding modes etc. And don't think that her being in the game means you can scream and get away from it, because it doesn't!

Boro_Owl Posted on 3/8 8:49
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Its basically Sharpshooter is a death match, team sharpshooter is a team deathmatch.

Survival you have limited lives, team survival you're on a team.

Assassination one player is armed with a pistol only and the others have to defend him while guarding their own player.

Attack and Defend is just capture the flag, but with different situations (hostages for example).

Terrorist hunt and Story are both co-operative.

trodbitch Posted on 3/8 8:56
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I take it co-op is just for two? Had a play on terrorist hunt (I'm sure that option wasn't there before!) and its twitch-tastic. The weapons are absolutely ace though!

Boro_Owl Posted on 3/8 8:57
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Nah co-op is 4 player trod. And the weapons are ace

What do you mean by "twitch tastic" anyway? (We need a confused simlie)

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 3/8 9:46
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

You two have no idea what you're letting yourselves in for.

Seriously though I watched her last night and was quite impressed. She really struggled at first and was not using cover etc. Towards the end she was communicating with her team and I saw her take someone out with a TomDoodle style headshot with a sniper rifle. She was finishing 3rd out of 5 in sharpshooter matches.

--- Post edited by Bernies_right_boot on 3/8 9:47 ---

Boro_Owl Posted on 3/8 11:13
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Good stuff bailster .

I noticed she was using the sniper and thought it was a bit weird for a new player, did she use it on single player?

Also I couldnt land a headshot with a sniper for ages, she must be good if she is making them on the first try.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 3/8 12:49
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

She chose it by accident to start with and really struggled in that game you played. She swapped to an assault rifle and was doing ok, but I told her not to go running around to start with because she was getting killed all the time.

In one of her later games she chose the sniper again and took out another sniper with an absolute quality head shot. The fact that he was a still target helped, but it was a good shot nonetheless.

I am looking forward to tonights game - the beers are on ice ready!!!

Simon1 Posted on 3/8 13:14

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 3/8 14:13
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

What did we decide with regard to weapon swapping?

Shall I leave it as default to start with or should I swap out pistols and hammerbursts?

Boro_Owl Posted on 3/8 14:32
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I don't mind tbh. A torque bow would be nice though

willie_shafter2 Posted on 3/8 14:59
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

i'll be on about 7-30ish . weapon swap from the begining. torque bows and snipers

Simon1 Posted on 3/8 15:07
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Is there something i'm missing regarding weapons and swapping?. what rules have you been playing regarding weapons?

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 3/8 15:41
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

We've not actually tried it yet, but there is an option in the game to change all weapons found on maps to be changed for other weapons. Somebody said that we should swap all pistols, hammerbursts for more powerful weapons.

It won't change the weapons you start with, just wherever you'd normally find a pistol it will be replaced by a torque bow for example.

willie_shafter2 Posted on 3/8 15:49
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

weapon swap is upto the host. he can change the weapons that are on the map.

willie_shafter2 Posted on 3/8 15:51
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

B_R_B i was bit slower to reply than you. but i'll be quicker tonight.

Simon1 Posted on 3/8 15:52
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Does the host get some advantage still or has it been fixed by patches? I remember reading about it a while ago.

willie_shafter2 Posted on 3/8 15:55
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

there's only one advantage that i'm aware of. the host has no shooting lag.

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 3/8 16:32
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I'm aiming to be online at 7.30-8pm tonight for GoW.


But as you know only too well from seeing me play, my aim is not good!

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 3/8 16:33
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

The host advantage is wasted on me as a host. It just means that it takes me a few milliseconds less to kill myself.

Cyrus2006 Posted on 3/8 16:38
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Would go Torque/Boom/Sniper for Hammerburst/Grenades/Pistol/HOD

Will have to go out and get a new headset. Mine has been screwing up and I cannot hear properly through it.

It's a different proposition playing with 8 though, the chances of you walking into 3 of the opposition are pretty high! I'm going to play some rainbow 6 because all I wanted to do in that game was use the bloody rainbow 6 controls!

Simon1 Posted on 3/8 21:21
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Really enjoyed the game tonight, thanks all. Forgot how good it was. Mind you, I really need practice with the sniper. Last couple of games I must have taken 20 shots with only 2 kills

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 3/8 21:28
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

by all accounts the 'horse' played a bit of a blinder tonight!

(even if I do say so myself )

Simon1 Posted on 3/8 21:30
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

With a little help from his sidekick

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 3/8 21:32
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Yeah, I really enjoyed it as well. To be honest even after my first shot with the sniper (taking a certain cannontrodder's head off), I knew it was going to be a good game.

Although I have discovered that me and the shotgun don't get on. I'd be more dangerous with a stick!!!

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 3/8 21:35
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Some good performances all round, but a special mention must go to Cyrus for that 3v1 comeback when he was trapped. We were chatting in the dead room and thought he had no chance, but he played it brilliantly.

trodbitch Posted on 3/8 23:41
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

To paraphrase a football cliché, "he had no right to win from there".

I only started to get into the game properly towards the end (sorry for bailing early but the peace and quiet I was supposed to get tonight to play just didn't happen)

Who gave me the tip to active-reload? Was a good one as it helped later but the first time I did it, I walked around a corner, saw someone stood totally prone and fooked up my reload

Mêlée is very powerful!?!?!? Too many times I got stuck close to someone and was ineffective but later on whacked someone with my shotgun and they went down!

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 4/8 8:26
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

yeah Rock Lobster is a good 'wing man' . I played a 'blinder' by my own low standards I usually set in this game!

Trod, I could see you were warmed up alright as just as I was joining in the games, you gibbed me a couple of times then 'had to go'. I'll get you next time!

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 4/8 8:35
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

B_R_B > What is this 'dead room' that you say you were chatting in ? Where is that?

trodbitch Posted on 4/8 10:00
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Sorry gibbo! I need to keep practising though!

The dead room is just when we are all dead and can talk to each other. Usually the first thing anyone says is "aaaaaaaaargh!!!" as they arrive! I'm normally in there long before anyone else plumping up the cushions and that.

Cyrus2006 Posted on 4/8 14:45

"Some good performances all round, but a special mention must go to Cyrus for that 3v1 comeback when he was trapped. We were chatting in the dead room and thought he had no chance, but he played it brilliantly."

Hehe, Thank you.

Sorry I left but my brother came round and he came to say goodbye before he leaves for Egypt for 2 weeks.

The dead room is like when you get to spectate players and you can talk to the other dead players. The lobby basically.

I got Rainbow 6 yesterday, and had a little go. Its good though isnt it? Sounds like I'm preaching to the converted from the posts above mind. Seems very realistic. Currently fighting my way through some back streets in Mexico I think. Good intuitive controls.

Simon1 Posted on 5/8 9:16
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Been thinking of getting rainbow 6 for ages, never seem to get around to buying it. Is it a bit like GRAW??. I know you can buy it for £25 now. Saying that, i'm playing through GOW single player again, now on hardcore. Then Bioshock is released in under 3 weeks. Not to mention Halo 3 at the end of September

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 5/8 9:25
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

where are all the 'reply' buttons going to?

Not sure if it plays like GRAW as I've not played it, but thats another Tom Clancy game isnt it.

Though I've only player a short time on Rainbow6 I think it is worth £25, online it is supposed to be excellent. Though obviously Im even less ready for that than I am for GoW, if you can imagine!

As you point out, there are plenty of very good shoot 'em up games out already and coming out soon on the Xbox, so you're spoilt for choice really.

Boro_Owl Posted on 5/8 9:35
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

No, not really like GRAW, GRAW is much more tactical, wheras with rainbow 6 you can often just bin the tactics and get away with it. Graw is one shot kills for a lot of it too, Rainbow 6 you can take a lot of hits a lot of the time.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 5/8 10:39
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I think you can still get R6V for 17.99 from Play, but it is currently out of stock at the moment. GRAW2 was the first game I got for the 360 and I loved it. When I first started playing R6V I couldn't get on with it - my initial impression was that GRAW2 was better. I've been playing terrorist hunts a fair bit recently and I'm starting to see how good R6V really is. I'm going to start the story mode again. It was also good to see an expert in action yesterday (Boro_Owl) playing co-op with Mrs Right_Boot - It was almost like he was Jason Bourne!!!

My Bioshock pre-order is going in today as well.

Boro_Owl Posted on 5/8 11:19
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Mrs_Right_Boot was pretty good, more time to learn the maps and she'll be ready for ranked team matches I think.

Get her using grenades more too, very useful things they are... fun too.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 5/8 11:32
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Before we'd seen you use them we didn't bother with them. We played some splitscreen co-op last night late on and were using them all the time - it's great to throw one into a room and take out 4 enemies!!

Boro_Owl Posted on 5/8 11:48
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I'm not a big fan of flash grenades in co-op because half the time they get you just as bad, but smoke grenades are a godsend. Often I'll just put one by a door, wait for about 3 seconds, open the door and just pick them off with a pistol.

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 6/8 18:17

Is anyone up for some GoW this week?

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I can on Wednesday.

I can play 6 Vegas too if you're up for it? We could have a 4 player co-op/versus?

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 6/8 18:26
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Me and the missus are playing co-op story mode at the moment - is it possible for you to join us?

If other people would prefer to play R6V then I'm up for that as well. Trod and G_C have been playing it recently - I've not played it on Live yet mind.

Simon1 Posted on 6/8 18:28

Bernies_right_boot Posted on 6/8 19:04
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Yes we were - I don't think there was an option to allow players from Live, but it did say 4 player co-op. Am I right in thinking 4 player is all through Live? If you know a way of getting in our game then you're welcome to join us. We will be doing another mission later.

Boro_Owl Posted on 6/8 19:16

Boro_Owl Posted on 6/8 20:31

G_C is pretty good at 6 Vegas, considering it was his first online game

Bit more experiance with the controls and he'll be sorted.

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 6/8 21:00
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

B_O > Thanks for the comments Like how you put the

I think a four player versus will be fun on R6, though I've never played versus in the game. I'll try and get online on Wednesday if everyone else will be, though cannot guarantee it.

"Bit more experiance with the controls and he'll be sorted." I did a B_R_B and committed suicide tonight- fumbling around for my night vision goggles I somehow pulled out the pin of a frag grenade and placed it neatly at my feet.

I then stood there and waited for the inevitable.....*BOOM*

Boro_Owl Posted on 6/8 21:04
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I forgot about him doing that

4 player co-op with people who are a good laugh is always fun

Boro_Owl Posted on 6/8 21:06
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Also maybe worth saying that 9/10 times Thermal Vision does the business, because it highlights where they are too.

Yeah, she was doing really well earlier and getting a few kills. I think she started to struggle in the last few rounds. She's better than me though. lol

Boro_Owl Posted on 6/8 22:47
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Last few rounds the game modes changed to something very different and a new map, so its fair enough really.

I did go easy and just used my pistol in the last round though.

She said thanks again for the game. She's learning the maps as you say and on that warehouse one she was really getting to know the layout. She got promoted to a Private First Class tonight so she's well chuffed.

Boro_Owl Posted on 6/8 23:00
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I noticed that Well done to her on the rank up, the unlockables are always great to have.

As soon as she gets to Master Sergeant she'll be loving it, that was my aim as soon as I started off, thats when you get all the good weapons

I think I only have 2 ranks left, I'm not sure. Takes ages to rank up though.

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 8/8 13:18
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Are you playing versus games with 'Mrs Right Boot' Boro Owl? Is that how she is ranking up?
I realised after playing R6 co-op the other night with you, that my character was in combat with no armour on!
He is now suited and booted though. I like how you can customise him and you get extra stuff when ranking up.

Boro_Owl Posted on 8/8 13:28
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

No armour is good in versus I find, makes you much faster.

And you can rank up in versus or in co-op, but its faster in versus games.

Gonna keep this hoofed so that we can remind people about the game tonight.

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I'll hopefully be on between 7-7:30.

Do people want to play Gears or R6V?

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I'll play both but I prefer Vegas

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Hoof - anyone else up for a game?

Top stuff tonight, some really close games at the end.

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

Yes mate - I really enjoyed those games. You were in top form tonight well played. I think you should start a Gears of War training school!!

I think I played pretty poorly tonight - I really need to remember that :

a) I'm not very good with the sniper rifle
b) just because I can't see an opponent, it doesn't mean they can't see me.

The good thing is though when you're playing with a few sound people it can still be a laugh even though I'm rubbish.

"You were in top form tonight well played." Cheers .

Your mate has got a lot better too, gave me some excellent 1 on 1s. I didnt think you were bad either to be honest, you're still much better than me with a lancer...

Speakin of lancers, I got chainsawed about 6 times today Who was it?

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

The lancer is my weapon of choice - I suppose I've had more practice with that than the other weapons. I also thought Jabebby played pretty well tonight, he's improved loads lately.

We'll have to sort out that 4 player co-op on R6V with me, you, trod and Gibsons_chequebook at some point.

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I'm definately up for some R6 versus games. I've never played them before though, but it'll be fun Im sure

so long as everyone who wants to play can do- I dont want to ostracise anyone cos they dont have R6 Vegas!

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

I'll play versus games, but having not played that either I reckon I will equal my amazing total from tonights Canals match (0 points).

I've also told jabebby that you can get it from Play for £18 so he might fancy a game soon as well.

re: Gears Of War-the online experience



Yeah that Canals match was .......something else. I think we really showed 'em in that round. Maybe they'll think twice about taking us on in that arena next time! We were as one then, a great team- I was Bernies_Left_Boot to your Right, if you will.

re: Gears Of War-the online experience

4 player co-op would be class.

Versus I'd be worried about because for that I do have waaaaay more experiance than everyone else, I'm sure mrs_right_boot will agree

Gibsons_chequebook Posted on 8/8 22:07
re: Gears Of War-the online experience

B_O perhaps you are right about the Versus with R6. Maybe you could take the lead in a co-op game.

Are you a 'creature of the night' by the way, hence the 'Owl' tag?

GC - I could sense their fear as we marched aimlessly into their bullets. You're right - all good teams stick together and work as a unit.

B-O - I've watched you and you play R6V excellently. Mrs Right_Boot is in awe of your skills.
