Brothers to the End

My one-month gaming spree ends today. As of February 1, I will be dedicating my gaming hours to writing. I’m going to miss these guys.


I finally got the Embry Star, with Finisher. I’m still working on Shock Trooper and Old Schooler, my next two in line. I have a long way to go to onyx in pistols. I might get there about the time we onyx in King of the Hill.

If you don’t play, none of that means anything to you, and I’m sorry. This game has achievements, over 60 of them, and Lemur and I have gotten half of them. In four years. Four. We’re not full-time gamers, obviously, but it would be nice to get Seriously 3.0 and move on to Gears of War: Judgment sometime this decade.

If you’re making Gears of War 4, I have some suggestions based on my current addiction.

1. Please don’t make me cry again. Or do, but know that I hate crying over video games.


2. Bring back Horde. It’s awesome.

3. Instead of making a new storyline for another game, did you know that you could make a game from the maps from 1-3 and Judgment, and all of the multi-player types (Horde, Execution, Team Deathmatch, Warzone, King of the Hill, Capture the Leader, Wingman, and Free-for-All), including all of the characters, human and Locust, and we would pay $60 just for that? The best part about it: YOU ALREADY HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED to make this game a success. Add in the easter-eggs, like playing, “Mad World,” in Gridlock, and make a few commercials, and this would be the best game ever. Best. Game. Ever.

4. If you don’t make this game, I’m going to learn enough code to build it myself. FEAR ME.


When’s the last time the wind said, “Hostiles,” to you?

Just kidding. I don’t have time to hack four video games into one. I’m writing, remember?
