No AI’s in Private Match – Gears 1 UE

image

After my MP fail,  I went to create a private match in Gears of War 1:Ultimate Edition on Xbox One.  Unfortunately,  I discovered that there are no AI’s to play with!  Tip:  Bring friends with you.   If you play alone, then you either have to have patience to wait for the MP lobby to fill or go back to Trophy hunting in Campaign.  You CAN start or join a co-op campaign and hope the stranger that joins you has a mic and is not an asswipe.

Gears 1: UE lobby – 8 or no start!

image

I went back to try the Gears of War 1:Ultimate Edition multiplayer but lost patience after a couple matches.   I wanted to take advantage of the Douple XP weekend.   Problem is. ..the lobby won’t start the game until there is exactly 8 players.   Tip: bring 3 players with you or wait until the evening or weekend when more peeps are online.

Gears of War 3 Major Malfunction medal

Yay! I finished the campaign on Insane!  I mostly did it alone with the AI’s, but got some help from a couple gamerpals, Wolf Soul & C4PT4IN P4IN, on a few chapters.   Thanks guys.  I love the medal’s title, Major Malfunction.

Since the AI’s don’t die,  it IS easier to do on your own.  Just let them crawl like little doggies to you when they go down.   No heroics.  Insane mode is about surviving.  Hang back and keep in cover.  Take your time.

Hanging by a Thread; the chapter where the Formers attack in the courtyard (and then plaza); and lastly, the “Bug Bitch” as we called her in the last chapter proved to be the hardest.

Gears 3 insane

image

Yay! I completed Act 1 on insane!  Just 4 more to go.  Hint: on Hanging by a thread, run LEFT off the zipline not right like many gamer sites tell you to do. Hide behind the wood pallet.  Throw granades.  Pallet will be torn apart by the baddies, so run like hell forward to the guardrail or to other cover.

Also…do it in Campaign standard not arcade.  It throws less baddies in the mix.  you get credit for each chapter you do on insane no matter if its standard or arcade.  So you can skip around.  You dont have to do them order.

COD Ghosts max prestige!

Well I finally did it but was met with some disappointment.   Dispite all the rumors I heard,  I got NOTHING (besides banner and emblem) for the long hours to get there.   Not even a xbox achievement.   Lame.

My Rarest Trophies have changed…

  Wow…this is very interesting.  My old Sims3 and Warhammer rare trophies have been knocked off the top 3 for some Black Ops 2 pretty basic and easy-to-get trophies.  Um…

Judging from my PS3 friend’s trophy lists and chatter on Twitter…it doesn’t seem that too many BlackOps players are rushing to work their way through the campaign.  Instead, they are playing MP and working on all the weapon upgrades.
