Gears of War 2 Patched, detailed by “Super Moderator” [Update]


[Update] Video after the break from Xplay.  They interviewed Cliff Bleszinski about what the update entails and why it was done –as if it wasn’t obvious from the patch notes– as well as other questions concerning the game and it’s reception.  By the way, he’s been playing Fallout 3, and it has him “hook, line, and sinker.”  Sorry for the small video, G4 has terrible video scaling.  View it on their site here to mediate the issue.

Yesterday the details of the achievements for the new Gears of War 2 patch were revealed by  I claimed that this would mean the title update (in other words patch) would be released in the near future.  Turns out it was very near.  You should be able to update by loading up your copy of Gears of War 2 and connecting to live.  Check after the break for a short breakdown of the updates.

When not wearing a cape and making ‘woosh’ noises, Rod Fergusson, forum titled “Super Moderator,” details fixes to Gears of War 2’s many camera, chainsaw dueling, and communication issues.  For example, players will no longer be left in the dead chat lobby at the beginning of rounds in game types where one doesn’t respawn.  On the balancing aspect, it seems they did a lot of tweaking to how grenades are spawned (only after the first batch picked up were used) and set as proximity mines (50% less health and easier to shoot off ledges).

Fergusson also goes on to name the achievements attached to the patch.  As it turns out, I missed three of them (To err is human, right?).  Sorry for the exclusion, I don’t have favoritism for achievements, rather a lack of knowledge.  The forgotten achievements are as follows:

  • Skeletons in Your Closet [Complete waves 1 through 10 on all Flashback Map Pack maps in Horde (any difficulty).]
  • More Mystery, Less History [Win a multiplayer match on each of the 5 Flashback Map Pack maps (any mode except Wingman).]
  • Bound by a Shared Past [Win a Wingman match on each of the 5 Flashback Map Pack maps.]

For a full review of all things “Gears of War 2: title update 2” related, be sure to check out the “Super Moderator’s” post.  Is this title update (read: patch) going to rekindle your passion for ‘chainsawdomy’, or have you already given up on Epic at this point?
