@ Taz_12_Dave, As far i can tell at this point its probly the only way getting this DLC thru xbox marketplace Dave, but i,m pretty sure they might add all these DLC,s on one extra game of the year edition later or something like that. An other way might be to ask around to ppl you know and have an internet connection to help you, by so you just have to connect it quik and download it from marketplace depending on the type of xbox you got, because the slim can make a wireless connection. Just make sure you have the needed microsoft points aswell (1200MS) to get it from marketplace once your connected. Thats as far i can help you atm Dave. Either this way or you got to wait untill, if at all they release it much later on a special game disk including gears of war 3 (game of the year edition).

If anything can pull be away from BF3 and ACR and back to Gears, this is it. Well done with this DLC. Making me feel good about buying that season pass.

why can't we have more DLC likes this in other titles! Berrick looks a bit of a cpt price inspired charecter (not a bad thing, just sayin) but i can't wait to get into this

Can you only get this buy dowloading it from x box live? Can you not just purcahse it from say the likes of Amazon or play.com for example as a disc? My x box is not connected to a modem or PC or can anybody help me out with this?

I'll probably get it. Still cant believe GOW3 sold more than Uncharted 3.

@Stringerboy if you finished gears 1 you would know that the light mass bomb, annihilated the kyrll

I think I have and explanation for why the kryll can be used without being in the shade. ****SLIGHT SPOLIER ALERT**** Part of the story of this DLC is that RAAM and the locust are trying to use seeders to block out direct sunlight so that the kryll can overrun Ilima. That could explain why RAAM can use the kryll in the open without them dying off immediately.

@Chozn275 First of all, they never said its the last gears game, they said its the final one in Marcus's story arc. Second, these aren't new characters at all. Alicia is the only new one, Berrick is from the comics, Kim is from gears 1, and Tai is from gears 2, and finally, Reach was never meant to be the final Halo game, just bungie's last halo game.

Did anyone else cringe when they missed the active reload on the Boomshot? (& by "missed" I mean no attempt was made at all)

Am I the only one who is thinking though Raam was a cool villain (for some reason) Who really gives a sh*t! When it comes down to it. All he is is just another locust who doesn't smile as much and is slightly taller than a boomer. What is left other than another ugly grunt? Nothing.

@vivaLAbostonia IGN explains vaguely the Krill mechanic. You might need to say in the shade for a bit or something like that.

This actually looks more awesome than the campaign! But what happened to the 100s of locusts swarming at you (no pun intended) from GoW2? It looks like we never quite got a similar scene in the GoW3 campaign.

oh man i cant wait. the idea of playing as RAAM is innovative, though i will feel somewhat "guilty" (for the lack of a better word) when i kill COG gears

And My 360 just died... after 4 years! By them I can get a new one they'll launch Gears 3 complete (no kidding, my salary isn't in dollars). I really want to play this one.
