As soon as I began to play the original GOW I realized that there was something about the game’s blend of action and tactics that set it apart from all other games in the genre. Over the years I’ve beaten both GOW campaigns with a wide various friends, family, and strangers, and still find the experience to be deeply satisfying. While some of the systems introduced in the original GOW were still in their relative infancy, the overall Gears experience was always spectacular. After playing a lot of Gears 3 over the past week I can honestly say that the Gears 1 and 2 were just an appitizer for the feast that is Gears of War 3.
Everybody’s workin for the weekend… and another Mass Effect challenge, of course. This one requires the squad to earn the Killstreak 3 medal, which (don’t get ahead of me) requires you to earn 3 killstreaks within a single round.
I never really paid attention to exactly what that entailed in the past, so a quick interweb search brings us up to speed: A killstreak is 5 kills within the span of about a second, among the entire squad. So sure, you can line it all up on your own with missiles… but I’m not wasting 3+ missiles on my own. A little coordination, corralling, and timing will net you a Commendation Pack (or, as it seems to be the trend for me, another Hurricane upgrade).
Amazingly, I continue to find myself coming back to ME3MP, and still really enjoying it. Nice to see the relative difficultly of the task increasing for this particular weekend. Pew Pew Pew.
