So my goal with this post is twofold.
Firstly, does anyone get some real enjoyment out of playing games on the hardest difficulty, or does it make a difference to you?
Personally other than to say I had done it, playing Gears (Campaign, Horde, etc) on Insane or even Hardcore at times would just seem tedious and ruined the flow of the game, especially in 4/5 where the movement is a lot smoother and faster than the OG games.
Also… do you like to watch other people suffer?
I would like to exclaim a series I am going to be starting tomorrow at 1PM CST (Dallas timezone). For the next while in the foreseeable future, me and a friend or two are going to be “Mastering” Gears of War, live for anyone who’s interested in watching me play these games on the most backbreaking difficulty with extra challenges thrown on top, from being totally blind, to introducing mandatory Squad Wipes, to going Snubs only, no matter the cost.
I will be streaming this endeavor Live on twitch, Here and welcome everyone who wants to join to watch us or if the situation allows, join on and hang out on the air for awhile!
Yes this is a shill but I’ve been ramping up to this for a long time now, finally glad to be in the position to share it with everyone here! If you’d like to relive the classics, play a match of Gears 2 Horde on Insane, try to get that Savage Theron in Gears 3 or whatever else-- just come on by, please?
Anyways that’s enough of me but I do still want to know… anybody enjoy playing Gears on Insane? I’m doing it for the guise of “Mastering” the game, but is there people out there who do it for the love of the sport?
UPDATE: The first VOD is live! Here?
