Gears of Testosterone

Damn, just got Gears of War2 this morning. Called my buddy over and we Co-opped the whole game in 6 hours. Wow I must say that is the best game i’ve ever played. To bad all the 12 year olds are kicking my ass on Xbox live.

Grunts, Swearing, testosterone, guns, and chainsaws… make one hell of a game.

Anyone else out there playing it?

Yeah, it’s pretty good.

Hey, I was thinking about something. I’m brain storming here, but wouldn’t it be awesome if there was a thread in Get a Life just for video games? We could even talk about other nerdy stuff… You know, whatever geek shit we find interesting. Just a thought.

‘Gears of Testosterone’ was such a great thread title…

Horde is a blast. My brother and I have played Horde online a few times recently.

I finished the campaign mode last night on “normal”. It was pretty easy, imo. Overall it was good, but the real value is in the multi-player.

Neverwinter Nights, along with Gears is owning my soul right now.

Xbox live gets old… The average age range is 11-14 and the kids voices are so high and they dont know how to utilize strategy, its a rush in and blast. Bah

Horde is good? heard some goods and bads about the game.

Horde will rock your face off. It’s a rush when its wave 25 and you just emptied your click in a Boomers face, but he is still standing and he just reloaded and has you in his sites, then your teamate takes him out with the hammer of dawn. Good times…

Anyone know of other games that boost testosterone as much as gears?

If you want a strategy game, play Supreme Commander on PC. You have to really know all of your counters and manuevers to get ahead in that game. It’s also superbly balanced (last time I played)

I love getting down to one drone and downing that guy and letting him bleed out while I pick up ammo and weapons.
