All aboard the Cole Train!
After an 11th hour entry into the Gears of War 3 beta I played a couple of sessions, blogged my impressions, then took several days off because of other obligations and what not. When I finally sauntered back to the beta I found out that in order to earn the Gold Retro Lancer and the Thrashball Cole (as pictured above) I had a whole lot of Gears of War 3 beta to play…and the clock is ticking.
In order to get the above described retail unlocks I need to pu the petal to the metal. After a few good play sessions in a row I have unlocked Cole to play with, I just need 9 more games played as him in order to get the retail unlock. That shouldn’t be a problem as I have about 50 to 60 more games to play before I can earn the right to use the gold Retro Lancer when GoW3 finally launches.
I am certainly not complaining though, Gears 3 is a lot of fun so far, and I cannot wait for its release, even if it is just to play some new multiplayer maps. September cannot come soon enough, and after about 10 more days we will only have Gears 2 to keep us occupied, and it will be awful hard to go back to that after this beta.
