As most gamers know, this month has been a glut of games. More releases over the past 4 weeks than we've had all year. Game publishers trying to grab your cash, and in my case... succeeding. So, while it's put a dent in my wallet, it's also put a dent into my free time, A.K.A. blogging time. So, without further ado, the cheevoz of Gears of War 2.

I want to begin by saying that this game is the bomb. It's not only the bomb, it's the bombizzle. The shizznat. The dookie chute... right? Anyway, it's great and I'm way into it. Horde Mode, ftw.
So it's all pretty straight forward, however Gears 2 has this cool little feature that shows you your progress towards specific cheevoz. For instance, when you hit 4,000 kills, it will let you know that you are 4,000/100,000 kills for the Seriously 2.0 cheevo. Good times.
Variety Is The Spice Of Death requires that you get a kill with every weapon in the game. There are 15 different weapons, click here for a list.
Kick 'Em While They're Down is similar to VITSOD, but you must perform every different execution with a weapon. This will require your enemy to be downed (on his hands and knees). The best way to get an enemy to drop down, is to use your lancer rifle to shoot their knees. They will fall, and you can use your weapon to perform a special execution. Click here for a list of all executions.
Dirty, Dirty Horde and Hoard The Horde are pretty difficult, but it's attainable with help. Get into a co-op game (the more people the better) and play up to wave 50 on one map! Turn the difficulty to casual(still fucking hard) and it should be a challenge, but doable.
Everything else is pretty self explanitory, now get out there and chainsaw some bitches.
So that's as far as it goes for Gears of War 2. I'm still pounding away at the cheevz, and I'll be working on a new post that will encompass all my cheevy goodness of the last two weeks! Be on the lookout for the normal weekly post!
