Anyone gonna attempt Seriously 3.0?

#1 Posted by SmasheControllers (2950 posts) -

I'm Level 36 and according to in-game stats, 33% done with the medals. Am I crazy or are other bombers gonna attempt this achievement?

#2 Posted by CenturionCajun (1573 posts) -

I'm going to try it in a general sense but some of the higher level medals are pretty out there. Completing Horde on Insane comes to mind. Plus there are other limiting factors such as the one that will require you to participate in something like dozens of events.

#3 Posted by SmasheControllers (2950 posts) -

@CenturionCajun: Yeah, I think anyone who is committed is going to be playing Gears 3 for years to come!

I don't know yet. Not been the biggest fan of Gears in the past but this one is intriguing me more than those last few. Probably going to keep playing it and see how it grabs me.

@The_Laughing_Man: Yep, too many achievements gained when offline.

Well, maaaaybe he's legit, but I highly doubt he could get this achievement in less than a week.

how's that even possible. the amount of matches required alone...

looks like someone hacked their achievements or they spent ludicrous amounts of time playing that and resident evil 4 in the same week.  Checked his xbox live profile, seems he got many achievements done on 9/24/2011 on gears 3, halo reach and resident evil 4.
#11 Posted by IBurningStar (2199 posts) -

I don't see how anyone could have that yet. Has to be a modder. Has to be.
 
I'm not going to go for Seriously 3.0 because I know I'm just not going to play that much Gears. I really like this game and I'm going to spend a lot of time playing it, but I'm not great at it. I do fine, I'm not terrible or anything, but I'm not going to clear Horde on Insane or stuff like that. I don't have the time or patience for stuff like that.

You mean someone glitched it. I don't care who you are, it's an impossibility to have all the Onyx medals already. Really? 18 thousand matches and tens of thousands of kills? 2,000 waves of Horde? Complete 500 chapters of arcade? Not to mention he would've had to do it all in one day, since going by achievements he hadn't even played online multi before the 24th.

Nope.

Lol I poked xbox support on twitter and they where like " Its possible if you play non stop" Mmmm no it is not possible. Cause I think there are even events that are not even out yet.

Now i wanna go play some. Some arcade mode would be fun rght now.

#16 Posted by Slayeric (276 posts) -

Yeah, something's not right there. Didn't someone already mention in this thread that one of the medals requires you to play in something like a dozen Gears of War 3 events?

#17 Posted by RobotHamster (4236 posts) -

I did get Seriously 2.0 in Gears 2 so I was going to try for 3.0, but now I'm thinking I won't have the time to get it but I'll see.

It is not possible. Simple as that. He hacked it.

#19 Posted by Slayeric (276 posts) -

@The_Laughing_Man: Tsk tsk tsk. Manloi. For shame.

#20 Posted by StrainedEyes (1354 posts) -

Yeah, the medal that requires you to play in a bunch of Gears events makes that achievement impossible for a long time.

#21 Posted by Slayeric (276 posts) -

I don't know... I kind of would like to get it. I might give it a go.

#22 Posted by Crono11 (1653 posts) -

I'm seriously planning on getting it. ( I'm sorry )

I'm at level 47 right now and have 50% of the medals.

#23 Posted by Slayeric (276 posts) -

@Crono11: How many of them have you ranked up?

Lol dude just contacted me via wall and admitted to cheating.

#25 Posted by Slayeric (276 posts) -

Bahaha! That's great. He probably could careless. But whatever. Lame way to game the system.

#26 Edited by DonPixel (2737 posts) -

That's like half of a year of gaming devoted to a single game, Can't do that. 

#27 Posted by Vinny_Says (5911 posts) -

it's still impossible to get the onyx medal for participating in events (one event usually lasts a week or so)

#28 Posted by Doctorchimp (4163 posts) -

No, Epic can fuck themselves with these achievements.

15,000+ kills in warzone alone on Gears 1 and still no seriously. I loved the multiplayer, but that always bothered me how that glitch could occur. They really can't check my total leaderboard kills as a match ends?

#29 Posted by JamesKond (239 posts) -

It's kind of doable if you play as much as those crazy CoD players play it, only problem is the Vengful medal, it requires you to get killed three times by someone and than kill him/her. Which ehm, isn't really skillbased at all, bronze is 175 do the math on that onyx will be x.x

#30 Posted by valrog (3741 posts) -

Am I the only can't see who "achieved" that? It says no one did.... This thread confuses me.

This.

Especially with The Third, Assault Horizon, Revelations, and the 3's coming out here in a few...there's just no time.
#32 Posted by Shawn (3843 posts) -

Not a big fan of using the sawed off. Getting 6000 kills with it would be a painful experience for both me and the receivers.

#33 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5195 posts) -

No.

#34 Posted by Veektarius (5342 posts) -

I'll probably strive to get the medals that ask me to do things that sound fun, which is the most I've done with any game. I seriously have no S ranks anywhere, and as perfect a package as this game is, it won't be the first.

#35 Posted by zyn (2765 posts) -

I was, but not at the minute. Maybe some day.

#36 Posted by Slayeric (276 posts) -

@valrog: Looks like it might have been removed. It said Manloi had S-ranked Gears 3.

#37 Posted by 234r2we232 (3175 posts) -

They should have called it Seriously Seriously 1.5

#38 Posted by Marz (5721 posts) -

damn, sounds impossible now that i know the full details of what it involves after watching goldglove explain it.
 
  

#39 Posted by _Horde (850 posts) -

Well, I am enjoying the hell out of Gears of War 3, so I'll probably make some progress towards that achievment. I don't know if I'll ever get it though.

#40 Posted by Ares42 (3014 posts) -

While a lot of the numbers sound daunting, none of the big numbers are the real killers. Sure they require dedication etc, but the big killer is the event medal. Just think about it, at 1 event per month it's gonna be 2,5 years before it's even possible to get it. At 2 it's still gonna be over a year.

#41 Posted by brownsfantb (425 posts) -

I want to do it but I know I'll burn out on Gears before I even get close to actually getting it. I still have yet to even get the Vengeful ribbon once, let alone 175 times. And that's just for the first level of that medal.

#42 Posted by RandomHero666 (3184 posts) -

Yes, eventually I will get it.. It doesn;t seem that hard.. just very time consuming.

#43 Edited by RandomHero666 (3184 posts) -

Just found this. explains what is needed for the achievement.

kotaku.com/seriously-3%270/  Giantbomb name drop at the end.
 
I racked up 3 months of gametime on gears 2. It will come eventually, maybe help it along by playing some private matches against bots now and then

I wonder if these Gears Events are just gonna be like what they did in Gears 2 and have some silly shit every weekend or so.

i personaly feel l like its epic's way of torturing achievement whores

i can imagine the developers sitting in a board room coming up with ways to torture completionists

#48 Edited by Sooty (8195 posts) -

This games multiplayer got boring after a few hours, so no I won't be attempting it.

and really it's not a big deal. It's grinding, pure and simple. It's not a skill based thing and I kinda feel sorry for anybody that feels compelled to do it.

I disagree. I think doing the same boring sequence over and over again for hours and hours and hours is less appealing than something that demands variety and exploration of all the games features.

Also, Achievements should be as the name implies. Not "you played this game 10 times, well done!".

Not that I'm implying I'll ever get it, but if this is the last Gears of War game it's probably worth having something crazy and long-term oriented, even if only one person ever gets it legitimately.
