Gears of War PC Finally complete after 4 years
Yes!! Fucking finally! It only took me 4 years, and a lot of help from people. It saw me through the destruction of my PC's power source, forcing me to remove my graphics card. Before that it was a lot of boosting with people and things were going well. I had pretty much just had left to do the Not so serious.

Figured it would be easy since I did Seriously without to much trouble. Well guess again. Around the time I was starting "Not so Serious" is when my power source randomly started to spark. Freaked the shit out of me and luckily it didn't cause a fire or do any other damage. I managed to remove it and replace it with the factory one that came with the comp. Well that basically meant I had to remove my graphics card which could not run without the bigger power source.

So with my shitty computer on its last legs I tried to run my copy of gears as per usual. Well that did not work, because it was soooo damn laggy I could not kill anyone and the game would freeze and close... That was annoying, after lowering all graphics settings to bare minimum, the game was just barely playable, but it was still so laggy. Manageable with my account and maybe 1 or 2 other people, but not in full matches where I had to do anything other then sit in one spot.

Using the idle boost method I basically was forced to find people who could play with more then one account, this was very hard to find and most people wanted me to run accounts as well. And as much as I wanted to (before I could) I just could not anymore. Most people would just turn away from this, and I guess I can't blame them. Basically I had to let someone else do all the dirty work, which I felt pretty shitty about.

Well why not buy a new power source or a new PC? If you know gears PC, you know how it can be so annoying. Out of fear of losing all kills I did not buy a new PC as I had planned and instead waiting until someone could help me out and I could finish this achievement on my computer.

Well now it's finally done, and finally I can buy a new PC and ditch this piece of crap! I am super excited and thus my first blog post! Probably my most meaningful achievement due to all the grief it has caused and having to get around 17000 kills for it to pop... I think it's due to the fact my game crashed so many times in the middle of a match... SOOOOO annoying for me and I bet for the person I was grinding with.

A Huge shout out goes to isharted whom without this would not have been possible!
