exactly what mstar cog said, who cares about casual mode? to be honest, theres not gonna be many people playing casual mode lol, almost everybody has at least ONE achievement in gears 1 or 2...and if you didnt play the first or second at least once with
a friend or something and earn the easy active reload acheievements, odds are youre not gunna suddenly wanna pick up gears 3...it will be a very unplayed mode, one that nobody on here has to worry about
So are they getting rid of the thing where people who haven't played past gears games get extra health and more damaging weapons. And is this going to be something like you can play till a certain rank and the you can no longer access it?
