What I don't get is how the new chapters come into achievements. The new content is between acts 4 and 5, so is all the new content in campaign the secret achievement?

I'm guessing the only secret achievement is for killing the Brumak on Hardcore like the other "boss" achievements.

Yeah I just read the PC achievement list and i am "SERIOUSLY" disappointed. I love gears, my favorite game ever. BUT 20,000 kills!?!?!?!? C'MON! What a joke. I mean normally you play ranked or player and I really don't like boosting for this game. It was fun getting the seriously on it's own merits. It better be allowed in annex or that new capture mode in this game. I wish they came up with some different achievements as well. At least ten different achievements.

But you can use your 360 controller to play it on PC can't ya?

I don't think 20,000 kills is that bad tbo. A difficult achievement for once.

i was considering getting this game if at least most of the achievements were different but when i saw they pretty much exactly the same i have no interest what so ever in picking up this game. Unless i find it bargin bin for like 10$ i aint touching it and even then i might not... I can't justify buying the exact same game again on a different platform for a small amount of new content and 1 boss fight.. not worth the time just to get to that boss fight.

As the title says I proberbly come bearing some of the best news so far since this thread (not being big-headed) it turns out that if you do have seriously all ready then no need for you to get it again as the second that gears loads up on pC all the achievements you have on 360 unlock for PC so all you have to do is do not so seriously and the secret (which really proberbly isn't so secret) for everyone that has all the achievements on 360 you lucky people I am no where near it but I don't know when I will get this game so by the time I get the game I might be close hopefully but yeah for all you people who want it on PC for multiplayer and don't want the hassle of seriously as you have it no worry and also co-op is free if you have silver account

I can confirm that XP does in fact work for achievements. I can also confirm that "seriously" or any other achievements DO NOT unlock if you have the achievements on the xbox 360 version. I can also confirm that if you play through on Hardcore it also unlocks the achievements for Casual.

what? is that why you unlocked the exact same achievements on both? wow you people are stupid. they are seperate games and all achievements will unlock if you meet the requirements.

and Kif, you dont even have the game. (neither do i, but i dont go around claiming things dont unlock for something i dont have)

That is also not true.

I would like to say that I read that information off of IGN.com
and I quote "For Achievement junkies, Gears PC gives you points on top of what you may have already earned with the Xbox 360 version. So even if you've beaten the game on Microsoft's console, you get credit for all the same Achievements again on PC."

Here's the link if no-one believes me
http://uk.pc.ign.com/articles/832/832195p2.html

and you might have to go into the options menu or something or try and have a look in instructions thats what I have tought of that might be what to do.

So no I am not high

Ok fine but you dont need to go around like a jackass and go oh your high but in that perspective I see where your coming from and also that doesn't bother having to do it again but it would be cool if u actually could import them all that u have into the PC or all the kills for seriously and I do know I don't have it

No you have to earn them all again.

I completed the game in casual first and then started on insane. I got quite surprised when I saw I unlocked achievements for both hardcore and insane, when I completed act 1. I also got the achievement for the berserker, even though it claimed it had to be killed on Hardcore.

Oh, and what a great game. Don't have a Xbox, so I'm completely new to GoW. Excellent game.

Now we just need more online servers.

It's taking forever.Because hardly anyone ever plays online in the PC Version, and I'm trying to break the top 100 in the 360 version(Warzone Rank 192, 40K Kills,22K Deaths)

P.S Birthday post ?

They should have made the game cross platform. :/

Ranked games are hard to come by on the pc, but there's always 6-8 normal games up.

Not yet. Ranked games require a Gold account, which PC gamers don't really want to buy.

And why should they? Only thing they'll get is achievements.

True and there are only four games out there on PC that support achievements (Gears of War, Halo 2, shadowrun and Kane and Lynch: Dead Men) so it might not be worth it they are thinking but a way in which they do get a better deal is that they can have a silver account and do co-op because you can't do that on 360

Oh, and Shadowrun and Halo 2 are only able to run on Vista. Else many more would had bought them - including me. But, sadly, if you want to play games, XP is the way to go for better performance.

I don't like Vista either. They should had sticked to their old formula, instead of trying to attract mac people.
