A little bit early i know, but i just can't wait to get my hands on it. Basically thought we would need to have a thread where we can all discuss this game, i know plenty of us are getting it and in that sense we should have a place where we can talk about it.

Also useful if you find any secrets / collectables etc etc, but remember to use the SPOILER buttons - as some people may not be as far!

I have just uploaded all 50 Achievemtns in the cheats section so we can help each other with them or give assistance and guidance to getting them.

Would be good if we could also get people posting if they going online and fancy a match, the usual stuff but i figure a big game like this deserves some special attention.

Look forward to hearing your thought on the game and playing Online with you!

Managed to do more co-op with Simian last night, got into the last Act and pretty near the end i think.

Story is good, really enjoying it, would like to hopefully get it all finished off in the next day or two. And as i have done it on Hardcore it will unlock a few extra achievements and done it all on co-op aswell. which is all good stuff!

I am approaching the end of the 4th Act and i have heard the 5th is a wind down and not that long, so hopefully i can get the storry done before the weekend and then i can concentrate on picking up a couple more achievements and playing COD5 and Naruto.

But the story does flow pretty well and i think it is a great plot!

Well, I'll see when I can get online, but I really need to go through the story myself. That said, i'm only going to do that after completing the story on the first game!

100,000 kills is too much, i will not be getting that one!

I dont mind helping people out on level in Horde if i am about, my concentration will go on to the co-op story mode now, i am on Act 4, Chaptger 3..... i think. So getting towards the end and i want to see how the story goes as so far it has been great

Don't think so :(

Best thing is you can work towards the "kill 100,000" achievement on Horde. So far, the best way I've found to notch up kills is to play on the level with the huge transporters, whack on the cannon towards the hordes of locusts with grappling hooks across the way - easy 100 or so kills :D

ah.... the kids have just gone back to bed (being ill, they keep getting up).

Wonder if anyone else is going to be around for Horde now that 3 of you have got up to 50. Really hope people keep on playing, it's good fun on it's own just playing and trying to survive.

is there an Achievement for doing a certain amount in a row without dying or restarting?

I finally did it, me and Black finished the last couple off, Simian was with us but his connection kept going. I actually feel like i have really earned that achievement, kind of wish something else was unlocked, but still very satisfying!

I'm up to level 9 on my own, but like pb, had fun joining in at the higher levels, I've not done too much either. Hopefully will be on soon :)

Probably easier to ask what I'm not missing!

The problem is that I've just been having so much fun joining in other Horde games that I've not really done much in the way of the early levels.

What levels are you missing pb?? i am sure if you jump in and help me and Simian out then we will be able to do some earlier levels with you.

Going through most of Horde with 2 people is a mission lol!
