Xbox Live is still fricking down, so I guess forget playing this tonight. What a terrible launch.

re: Gears 5 looks to up the horror elements, be more ambitious.
Pretty awful timing for profile sign in problems. Ended up playing smash and ff viii instead for the majority of the time.

Overall, I like the game though. My only major complaint aside from the Xbox live problem yesterday would be the Initial load times. Feels like I’m trying to play fricking gta online again. Woof.

re: Gears 5 looks to up the horror elements, be more ambitious.
As I play longer, I’m beginning to get annoyed with load times.

Don’t ever die because you will physically die of old age waiting for this piece of shite to load you back in.

I’ve had two instances where I’ve tried to re-load, lost patience, quit, and lost progress as a direct result. One of which was due to a glitched side quest where I was essentially stuck because I couldn’t trigger a prompt. I want to like this game, but the coalition is doing their best to dissuade me.

Had no issues getting on the game yesterday. My issue is multiplayer disconnects every other game. We will be in a deathmatch in the last round and it give you a message saying I've been kicked from the game. Happens way to often.

Load times are fast on the Xbox one X.

re: Gears 5 looks to up the horror elements, be more ambitious.
I have an x as well. That’s why I was getting annoyed with long loads. I think part of it is server strain. It wasn’t as bad in the past few hours. Maybe they’ve put in some hot fixes. I had to step away for a while earlier because it was getting quite aggravating.

Been getting a series of blown checkpoints and odd bugs in act 3.

Did they even test this fricking thing?

I was enjoying the game until I got to the snow skiff thing. It absolutely slaughters the pace of the game up to that point.

re: Gears 5 looks to up the horror elements, be more ambitious.
The skiff is largely unnecessary. All it does is chain together several side quests and the main plot with some mindless exploration.

It wasn’t annoying enough to bother me, but it didn’t add anything. They could have easily cut it out and saved us a few skiff rides.

I like the plot well enough and it’s a pretty game. Making the single player have online components was a stupid move though. I think most of my bugs and annoyance have been caused by that.

Got it on steam last night. After the annoying boot camp, played a few games of arcade. Fun, but we played the same map every game

I skipped boot camp 10 seconds in.

They're rewarding us for the lackluster servers at launch.

Haven’t had any issues yet. Just got to the start of Act 1 chapter 4 where a certain new element arises into the story.

re: Gears 5 looks to up the horror elements, be more ambitious.
I finished the campaign and have mixed feelings about it. Game is buggy and when you hit ACT 4, a decision gets made on which person you save which will be interesting to see come Gears of War 6.

I don’t give a shite about anyone besides Marcus and Cole Train. As long as I don’t have to pick between them two, it’ll be fine.

re: Gears 5 looks to up the horror elements, be more ambitious.
baws, is 5 better than 4? I'm playing through 4 right now and it's god awful. if 5 is better, I'll just read 4's wikipedia to catch up and play 5 instead.

this is exactly like Halo lol, new dev takes over a series and has no clue what made it good originally. everything about 4 just feels second rate. gameplay is not iterative at all, environments are bland and uninspired, enemies suck, script sucks, etc etc. they're trying to create this merry band of happy go lucky soldiers, but not one of them has a tenth of the charm of Cole Train or Baird, and the banter that the previous games excelled at just comes off as cringeworthy with this group

i see why everyone shite on this game when it came out. poor Microsoft, their studios just suck lmao. im praying 5 is better

4 is definitely a grind but the last couple chapters are worth playing.

Did anyone else think act 2 chapter 4 took forever? I’ve played games shorter than that chapter took me.

re: Gears 5 looks to up the horror elements, be more ambitious.
Holy shite Gears 5 is like a different game. night and day. beautiful, performs well, better writing, better gunplay. still the cheesy Marvel-esque one liners, but dear god its 100x better. 4 felt like an old arse 360 game, what a pos. the story was terrible too, glad i read the wikipedia instead of wasting my time playing

re: Gears 5 looks to up the horror elements, be more ambitious.
I refunded it with 0.2 hours on Steam - there is a bad sound bug or something with Logitech headphones maybe? Either way Dolby Atmos is forced and there are no Audio options aside from volume sliders in game. Couldn't even hear Del in the Boot Camp the volume on the dialogue was so low. Sounded like he was talking through a vacuum down a long corridor.

And my wait for DOOM Eternal continues...
