Hopefully there will be good mechanics on the ground.  Buuut, this comes out 10 days after Gears 4...so probably not getting until 2017.

Gears 4 Beta.
6  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gears of War 4 on: April 19, 2016, 02:05:24 PM
And here's a pretty good clip of the new weapon in action. 4 total kills including a direct hit.
7  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gears of War 4 on: April 19, 2016, 02:04:46 PM
Ok. Before we begin here is the definitive clip of my 2.5ish hours with the beta last night:


If you pause it at the right moment in the second kill you can see the other player's body fly apart before the blood cascades in and obscures the view...that and the sinister laugh made me feel right at home.


Pros:
+ feels like gears three in movement.
+ sensitivities seem to be the same as gears 3. duplicated my sensitivities 12,12, 8 and the game played just about perfectly
+ new dropshot weapon is a hoot. took some figuring out, but is great. time to dodge is when it's on its way
+ new mantle ability is well used. figuring out where and when it's usable should be pretty quick
+ ranking system seemed to be implemented well as I was in pretty even matches all night and did well pretty consistently.  If the ranking up is tied to wins, it's going to be hard to level up playing with randoms
+ bounty cards add an element of suspense and achievement to each round. they're basically cards that have you try to achieve a certain number of kills or points in a round.  was a fun addition.
+ Gore level. Gibs and red jam all over the screen all the time. Terrific.


Middlin's but mostly positives
+/- not so sure about being able to active a full clip.  It removes a lot of strategy from the game as you had to fire off- and thus waste- a few rounds to be in ideal combat position for an encounter.  TBD.
+/- character call outs are way too loud. It's basically like having awareness equipped in Blops 3- you can hear the enemy from great distances. This can force encounters but can also limit the ability to sneak up/flank which is the crux of my play style.
+/- graphics are just so so. They are servicable. This is a beta, but there are smooth edges where there shouldn't be and a definite lack of texture. That said, when you're in the heat, you don't care what the characters look like.
+/- hit detection. seems to be a gears hallmark that when you have a guy perfectly lined up and you blast him he somehow walks through it and smokes you. happens every now and again, but overall the guns felt good.
+/- only one server disconnect in 2.5 hours
+/- only one match where it was me and 4 bots vs 5 real players. went about as expected
+/- no stat tracking in game. my guess is that it's left out of the beta. I'd bet I had about a 1.5 K/D all said and done

Cons:
- Dam map can easily turn into a spawn camp.
- Beta maps feel pretty samey.  I like them all about the same amount, but that's because they are all very similar
- have to customize your loadout and gun position before every match. might just be because it's the beta
- hammerburst. Not the gears 3 hammerburst. I feel like it might be a gears 1 or 2 version, but I'm not sure. might default to the lancer for the first time in i don't know how long

Overall: Gears is back.  I didn't want to go to bed but had to.  I don't want to be at work but I have to. I want to sit at home and play this and play this and play this. I cannot wait to be home playing it again.  I cannot wait to microtransact, collector's edition buy, stat obsess, art book, steel case, prima guide, special controller, rock n rolla with this game.

Got my first diamond camo set (SMGs) and have eclipsed 40,000 kills. COD4, I believe, was the last and only other COD where I had that many...I think.

Teaser trailer brings the feels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3f8VgQ_dqk

Friend loaned me his ultimate edition so i can get into the beta a week early.

Played two matches and not knowing the maps, or the weapons locations, I went 4-5 and 9-2...and something is awakening in me. I may have to pull out Gears 3 and have another dalliance.

Quote
Hate to be the messenger but Gears was the definition of generic from the start. It just looked really pretty back in the day.

Not generic at all and it pretty much created the the 3ps cover shooter genre, had some of the best coop of any franchise ever, and introduced the concept of horde mode.  Characters are surprisingly deep (when you toss in the novels) and each game iterated on what I consider the best MP of  the generation.

Quote
Didn't that already basically happen with Judgement?


Gears  is back under development by one of the originators of the series so hopes are high.

If the beta is any good I'm going to go in completely cold and be as surprised as I can be.

13  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gears of War 4 on: April 07, 2016, 03:20:11 PM
Just announced release date of 10/11/16.

Closed beta in two weeks. Open beta the week following.

Going to be hard to improve upon Gears 3 MP which is perfect. Won't be hard to improve upon Judgment which was terrible.

Here's hoping.


How does one prepare for something like this?!

Huge jump in kills per match as I think the talent pool is thinning out a bit and there are a lot of new lower level players coming on board.  Not sure what to attribute the big jump in deaths to, other than I go on improbable bad runs where I will go 2-7 and torpedo my match.

I'm still loving the game very much. Playing nuketown has been a hoot.  Planning on reinstalling the new maps tonight. If I find they continue to ruin my enjoyment of the game, I'll be removing them again and probably permanently.

I bought into the pay for 5 get 10 rare crates this weekend. Got some good epic and legendary stuff but no weapons. 2 of the 10 crates were duds, but overall was happy with the purchase. Might reinstall the new maps again in a week or so and give them another try. But then again, I'm really enjoying the game again so i may not...

I currently pay 64.99/mo for 50/5 with TWC. That is the top tier price and if I had Maxx (coming within a month) I'd be getting 300/20 for the same price. When it hits I may drop down a tier save $10 and get 200/20 which is more than plenty for me. ATB, is 100/10 the fastest you can get or are you just running an old ass modem? With TWC to get 100/10 you have to have a 8x4 channel modem anything higher requires 16x4.

They free upgraded me to to 100/10 due to competitive threats but my current modem can only pull 55/10. I haven't wanted to spend the money to get a new one...

22  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Does Anyone Really Need 1000/1000? on: March 15, 2016, 04:49:50 PM
A fiber company is moving into my area: 89.00 a month + 200.00 modem thing +200.00 start up costs = 1000/1000.

I currently pay Time Warner Cable 64.00ish per month for 100/10 but I only have a modem that pulls 55/10.  It's that cheap because after having my rates go up year after year I called and invoked fiber coming into my area and they cut me a 'deal'.

That said as I don't have cable anyway, I've never had any problems with TWC in the 10 years I've had them. Great connectivity, great service, great support.  But I hate having my rate go up year after year...and cable companies in general...

So do I really need 1000/1000 when on average i'm okay with the service and the speeds. 

On the flip, is there any reason NOT to get 1000/1000?

Have been playing mostly solo so I wonder if that explains the lack of lag. Not sure.

Anyway, new maps in two weeks. Hopefully all the glitches are fixed by the time they hit XB1.

I'm going to say 27-22 Broncos.

I think the Bronco's D gets to Cam early and throws his timing off (like the Jints did to Brady in that first SB).

Problem is Manning.  Not sure he has anything left in the tank. Here's hoping!

All true except the score.  D hit him early ruining his timing and confidence. And Peyton had nothing. Albeit I did say this first:
