Getting really excited about this now. Really going to try and get to level 100 (and the gold omen weapon skins). Don't know how easy that'll be when I'm just playing Horde, depends how they distribute the XP I guess. At least you earn XP in every mode now.

You should aim for playing on those XP events. Hope this can help you out on when you are getting your wings.

Ah no, I've given up on those. I'm only level 58 as it is and don't have the time to grind to 100 before the 20th. You need more than 6 million XP for level 100 and I've barely cracked a million. I meant get to level 100 in Gears 3, the reward is the golden omen weapon skins. It all depends on how difficult they made it to rank up though. IIRC in the beta I got to level 38, can't remember exactly though, but I didn't play that much.

I'm almost positive that Epic's said that you'll earn XP in every mode now, including the campaign. I could be wrong, but that's what I seem to recall reading.

I know :p That's why it should be easier to rank up this time round. Getting the wings in Gears 2 is a grindfest.

Seriously can't wait for this game. Only 12 more days left. Does anyone have any more info on how the 3D will work in Gears 3, other than knowing that it will have a 3D mode? My new 3D tv is being delivered tomorrow, and even though I didn't buy it for 3D, since it has it, I want to play the game that way lol.

Well, even Rod Fergusson says the 3D looks dodgy, so don't hold your breath. By the sounds of it, it was a very late, possibly rushed addition.

That's the impression I got when I read it would support it, that the implementation was an after thought and wasn't really designed for it. But I also read that they would be implementing better 3D support into Unreal Engine directly, so they can improve it through patches. Then the XDK is also supporting 3D as well now too, so the 360 itself will have better 3D support. A couple months ago I couldn't care less about 3D, now I'm excited.

The soundtrack CD is available for pre-order from Amazon.com and it is from Steve Jablonsky like the one from Gears of War 2 so that should be good.

Got the game in my mailbox today, big mistake by a Norwegian webshop who sent it out yesterday to everyone who preordered the game. Haven't had the chance to put it on yet though.

Don't attempt to play it yet. Especially if you have your Veteran Gear from Gears 2. It will somehow screw up some updates and you might not get your gold gun skins.

The dreams in which I'm dying: Ars reviews Gears of War 3

gearsfeature-4e6e3f5-intro-thumb-640xauto-25364.png

The good

A great single-player campaign, and a wide variety of multiplayer modes mean you won't run out of things to do

Good variety of fun weapons and ways to use them

The classic formula still works

Beautiful graphics

A siege battle with multiple layers? So much fun

One of the most important characters in the series goes out with a whimper, not a bang. It's entirely appropriate.

Multiplayer is full-featured and expansive

The series comes to an end, without dangling a sequel in front of you

The Bad

There are still some questions left unanswered

Some of the enemies are more annoying than scary and/or satisfying to fight

Sometimes the game's levels get bogged down in fetch quests

The dialog is often stupid

The underwater scene was so close to Episode One I kept expecting to see a Gungan

The Ugly

Check out how they make that animal-barge move forward. I felt bad for it

Verdict: Buy
