    Just wondering because i'm getting fed up with most of the online community for it right now, its lucky if i finish a match now, and even luckier if i escape without getting bad rep, even when i've done nothing wrong! Plus the racism on there is annoying the crap out of me.

    the racism on "gears" is pretty bad, and very strange. i have never run in to this with any other game on xboxlive. i guess its because it brings in more casual gamers (aka dickheads). well ill play with you send Burt Reynold5 a friend request!

    Hmmn. Not surprised, considering one "episode" I saw on Youtube (Baird the most stereotypical gay you'll ever find and Cole talking through clicks- WTF?). Still a bit hard to believe, though.

    It's one of the most popular games on the system, therefore it gets the biggest mix of tards and normal people.

    I play assassination some, not very often, with my friend who's ranked 7th overall.

    I play, OptimusStrider is the gamertag, though I agree, it's getting bad (Halo-ish comparable) with the amount of idiocy in the lobbies now.

    Indeed. I was sick of the folks in there after about an hour and never went back. It is just about as bad as HALO 2. :( 

    I've had no such issues in Lost Planet, though - it's usually a good group of folks in there.

    I was surprised as hell last night, played a few games and only one of them had any trash talking in, the rest were pretty calm and i actually had a good time playing. I'm still in shock >_>

    Oh and GT = KingLoscos

    the trash talking made me give up on this game, i traded it in after a particularly irritating encounter.

    That's why I don't play this game online. I am a casual gamer and don't need to get online with it then regret it.

    I'm still playing through single player anyways.

    I still need to play through the single player, but the game doesn't hold much interest for me.

    I was kind of the same way until I got about halfway through.

    Maybe it's just a determination to complete the game though...

    i thought the single player rocked... the multiplayer was quite good too, just some of the losers playing it made it unfun.
