First Gear...


Well I'm there, battling my way slowly and somewhat tentatively through the locust horde... I'm still a tad crap at the controls but I seem to be getting to grips with it... I also get very phased by the amount of hostile fire!

Still very early days yet, but I'm loving what I've seen so far. It's clear to see why this game has been treated a the stuff of legend... Reason on it's own to buy a 360 over a PS3 maybe... Now if only I was more of a bad ass, things would be good... LOL! :)

I hope it doesn't take 10 hours to use a chainsaw in Gears 2.

I've played Gears of War...it was pretty cool. The chaingun was by far the coolest thing about it.

That's great Father! I was starting to worry that my and funnyman's comments had taken your will to try this game.

It's rather great, isn't it? Just keep trying till you get the hang of it.

FUNNYMAN said...

I would like to be able to save your game anywhere in Gears 2 like you can in Mass Effect. That would decrease the frustration and difficulty.

I'm loving Gears, but I also dipped my toe in COD4 and I must admit it's luring me in...

FUNNYMAN said...

Both games are hard as hell. Are you up for the challenge father?

NebachadnezzaR said...

Father, pass by my place for a mini-review (really mini, just a paragraph) of CoD4.

Funnyman, I think CoD is very accessible on the easiest difficulty setting, no harder than your average FPS. Of course this is a guy with, so far, half the game beaten on Elite difficulty speaking...

FUNNYMAN said...

If you haven't noticed by now Neba, then it should be fairly obvious that I play first person shooters like an ass.

fatherkrishna said...

I'm up for a challenge Funnyman. Gears seems harder in the early stages than COD4, but I'm going to have a crack at both.

I'll pop over there Nebacha, been meaning to anyway!

Funnyman, you don't know how much comfort I take from hearing someone else sucks at shooters... Shall we form a gang or club? PPSA... Piss Poor Shooters Association?

NebachadnezzaR said...

That explains a lot funnyman...

Unfortunately I can't sign up for that club, I'm fairly good when it comes to shooters. If only you could have seen me during my golden years of playing Counter-Strike... :D

Junlee said...

I need to be in that club as well...I suck something awful at FPS.

FUNNYMAN said...

I am better at third person shooters than first person shooters but not by much. A club father? Sure, let us form a club. Is there any drinking and smoking in this club? If yes, then sign me up. I just hope my blow up dolls will approve of this club. Speaking of club, I plan on posting a review for The Club soon (in case you were interested).

fatherkrishna said...

A club it is then! don't worry Nebacha we'll make you an honorary member...

by all means bring booze, cigs and your dolls funnyman! anything to make us feel better about our shooting innacuracies...

fatherkrishna said...

Oh and BTW Funnyman, I'll drop by your place tomorrow.

Keeping up with everyone's blog and posting on the 5 I have going is proving a time consuming business!!

FUNNYMAN said...

Then just focus on one blog. I have four blogs, but I only update one of them.
