7 days til release!
Jeff is not qualified to review Gears 3.
Jeff plays like a complete noob lol. Come on hes played gears before. You gotta move a certain way.
I got into the beta today, and it's OK. Seems very inconsistent, like sometimes a point-blank Shotgun blast will kill a guy and other times it'll just take him down to half HP.Like Gears 2, I'll be playing this primarily for Horde and co-op campaign. I never really cared for the competitive multiplayer.
This game is the only reason i wished i had a 360 ever.
Pretty cool. Haven't played the beta yet with so many new releases. If the issues from previous MP aren't fixed, I'm perfectly happy playing SP only.
I loooooove Gears. I don't own a 360 but I want to so badly just so I can play this series. It's so amazing.

"While I would agree with some of that, it's still a shotgun battle to the power weapons. If you fired up Gears 1 right now, you would not only run into tons cheaters, but 95% of the players use nothing but the shotgun and longshot (for downs).We don't mention Gears 2.. "

Is that Anya Beta hair? Please tell me they'll change it to tied back, because her bob of a head looks incredibly weird from all angles. And wait... that's the Queen Locust in the mp? :O
I finally got a free beta key from a giveaway blog. Sadly I wasn't able to get a beta key when they were first giving out since I was out of the house. =(
" Jeff has zero spacial awareness... "
"Meh"I never really got into the MP in the first two games. It was just too frantic, none of the assault rifles seemed to matter as it was always the shotgun, torgue bow, or sniper rifle.
This looks too dope.
I think I'll wait for Uncharted 3 for my fix.
Jeff has zero spacial awareness...
Too much negativity towards this superb franchise. What other options are their for 3rd person competitive online shooters. Dead Space 2 multiplayer? no thanks. Socom 4? (which, so far has gotten less than great reviews.) How' bout GTA online, yeh, that's loads of fun. Red dead multiplayer? Maybe I can pop in "The Club" or Kane&Lynch. Those are awesome!!! Uncharted 2 is pretty good online, but not much of a community. Plus, it's gameplay was obviously influenced by Gears of War. Either learn to use the Shotgun, or don't. Just play Horde and beast, enjoy the single player, and stop complaining.
SP and stuff like Horde mode should be great, but the MP looks like trash. Looks like dudes rolling around blasting each other with shotguns, this game just isn't made for competitive MP.
Maybe its just me but why do they even use cover if you're just a bullet sponge for anything other than a shotgun or rocket launcher? Those automatic guns seem to do nothing unless the person just stands there for the 3 or 4 seconds it takes to unload on them
shooting with guns
man, I haven't played Gears multiplayer in three years and even I know he's doing it wrong.
Haha you can tell these guys haven't played gears multiplayer for any length of time...
The beta plays like a dream. Such a massive improvement over Gears 2.Like Cliffy himself said on NeoGAF "Gears of War 3: this time it works."
gears of wars 2 was a huge letdown, i'm not falling again epic
Gears of War continually excites me with every release. But from what I've seen my complaints that have carried over from 1, mainly the shotgun, have not been addressed. Furthermore, it looks like they made it even worse by adding in that other shotgun. Am I crazy or the only one that feels this way. I'm really liking the new unlock system and the little awards and stuff. But this is kind of a dealnrealet
" So typical of Jeff to criticise what he's not very good at. Want to be playing this, but I don't have the patience to jump through all the hoops. Some beta this is. So you don't want people who have played the shit out of your previous Gears muliplayer to help you test your game? Um. Yeah.Also, this is what they really should be playing for TNT next week... "
" OH SHIT play gears of war 3 with drowningpool? do I get to waterboard some terrorists too? "
OH SHIT play gears of war 3 with drowningpool? do I get to waterboard some terrorists too?
The character animations are leaps and bounds better than Gears 2.
The Beta is so much fun. I'm impressed with what Epic did.
Have never understood the love for the multiplayer in Gears. I enjoyed the singleplayer in the first game, but the second didn't do much for me. Will probably pick up 3 when it drops to a lower price.
Do those command prompts indicate changing context-sensitive button assignments or just for that guy from Momento?
Ugh, the MP still looks horrid on account of the shotgun being so prevalent. Oh well.
I hate the shotgun-duelling of Gears online play. They really need to nerf that thing.
The campaign is what I'm in for.
I'm looking forward to trying it out. I didn't grab the VIP access so I'll wait for the Bulletstorm beta.
So roll around and shotgun right? I like that you can unlock stuff for the retail version, they probably could've made these preorder bonuses.
People rolling around with shotguns. Yup it's a Gears game alright. Why even put other weapons into the game at this point? haha.
Man, the only way they could get me to play this multiplayer is if they nerf the shotgun, or get rid of it entirely. That is such bullshit.
Amazing Game cant wait to play it this monday!
looks shit, like gears 2,
Looks fun but too intense for my paltry skills. Any game that penalizes death and determines victory by using a respawn pool isn't going to work for me. I would be the cause of many a loss because I'm little more than a "meat bag" usually. I die easily. The single player might be fun though. I don't know, I wasn't a huge fan of the previous two games. Perhaps, I'll take a look at them again before this is released.
After watching this quicklook, I'm still surprised people find Gears series worth playing in multiplayer. It wasn't fun for me in the first, and not much has changed here.
I preferred the hammer burst in 2. Each bullet does more damaged than a single lancer bullet, and by pulling the trigger quickly, you can, for a short period, nearly match the lancer's rate of fire. If you just hold down the trigger it sucks, though.
" Good job not bitching out and using the shotgun, Jeff! Real men use assault rifles because we have BALLS OF STEEL. "
I hope they set a new precedent with these dedicated servers. Bungie had a good idea way back in Halo 2, but we're all sick of it now haha
Weird to see the direction Epic has gone. They went from the near perfection of UT2004 to...this mess. Oh well. Maybe one day they'll get back to their roots.
Looks like Gears. I guess if they can just get it to work properly, it'll be an improvement.I wonder if the campaign will actually make that lambent stuff make sense.
