So apparently this game leaked out today

#1 Edited by LassieME (228 posts) -

According to The Verge, Gears of War: Judgment has leaked, and Microsoft has said it would permanently suspend all players they see playing it, much as they did when Halo 4 leaked about a month before release last year. So I guess it's just a matter of time before everything about this game is everywhere.

But sometimes a leak is a store selling a game early. The prior policy was anybody who could show they actually paid for the game was free to play it. Banning people for that would be BS. But from reading the The Verge story, it looks like they are just reiterating their normal policy of dealing with pirates.

I couldn't possibly be less interested in this game. It's hilarious that you play as Baird apparently. Wow way to go with that choice.

A month early is pretty bad but console games always leak out at least one or two weeks brefore release... sadly. Well not always, but that's pretty common.

@slashdance: What's the point of release dates if there are always corner shops somewhere leaking it to their friends and regulars? Maybe some actual enforcement of the rules can make this right. I'm not into punishing the players who in good faith purchase a game without knowing it isn't officially released yet, I'm okay with punishing the ones who know that they aren't supposed to be playing yet.

That's a stretch. They're usually 'leaking' over the weekend, just before their Tuesday's release.

Are we talking about retailers breaking street dates or games leaking out on torrent sites ?

So, the leaks are pretty much "yep, it's Gears"?

So basically you're just jealous when somebody gets games earlier than you can? If somebody paid for it, why does it matter if they got it before the release date at all?

Sounds good to me!

@krullban: Are you serious? I don't care about people getting games before me, they do all the time because of my geographical location. What I do care about is enforcement of agreements and that people who break them get what they deserve. Its about living in a society with laws and regulations. Release dates are set for a reason, but hey, I'm the jealous guy who can't let people catch a break because they don't have the patience to wait a few more days until it officially releases and then they can avoid perma bans from the services they use on a regular basis and this wouldn't have been an issue.

@artisanbreads: As much as I dislike Baird I'm hoping that they can do something more interesting with him, maybe explain why he's such a dick all the time. I'm probably gonna be disappointed, but I have my fingers crossed. People Can Fly managed to make even the characters in Bulletstorm likeable.

I would be really surprised if this game doesn't turn out awesome. All the gears games have been so good.

I didn't even know this was coming out, and I am the kind of the person who follows basically all game releases, regardless of platform.

Is there any word yet on it being good or not?

Also, I love and hate when games and stuff get leaked, it's normally really exciting, but it must suck for the developers.

A lot of people are upset about all of the multiplayer changes, though. It's supposedly much more casual-friendly; they've removed executions and the DBNO state; players spawn with a grenade now instead of a flash bang; run n gunning is looking to be a much more viable way to play; and many other such alterations. I'm not saying I'm against everything they've been changing up, because I never had the opportunity to really dig in deep into the Gears multiplayer, but I can understand why a lot of people are throwing their noses up as it's undoubtedly a very different, much more accessible, sort of multiplayer component than Gears past. Also, no horde mode, which makes me sadface.

Single-player looks like it's going to really great, though, and there's no denying that it's going to be at the very least a really well made game, with the same tight-controls and fluid gameplay.

Jeez Microsoft stop these leaks!!

#25 Edited by Optix12 (609 posts) -

Instead of instant permabans Microsoft should simply get in contact with those consumers and question which companies broke release date. That way they eliminate the source rather than the end user who has pretty much done nothing wrong but find a pretty sweet deal. In regards to if it was a store releasing the game early then its final game code and you would have thought it would have passed Microsofts xbox application stuff already before the store actually gets the game. That said if none of the reviewers have the copy yet its more likely its a torrent release which could probably get traced to the original poster

Eww I haven't been keeping up with it at all but if those changes are true than that is pretty fucking dumb. Having everyone start with a grenade will be a nightmare. Grenades will be planted on every piece of cover in the map. DBNO should stay in as well. If they fuck up the multiplayer than I will not be buying this game. I dont care at all about the single player in gears games especially if it focuses on the worst character in the game fucking Baird. Well Jace is pretty damn bad too but fuck Baird.

@laserbolts: The grenades stick when thrown, but they have said they're about 40 or 50% less powerful and there's far less range on them. There is a ton of videos out there.
