Holy shit that's nuts. What make that even harder is, you have to stick with the same 2 people, and can't progress without them.

Guess it should be someone reliable??????

Who's getting Gears?

Also, how does the cross platform stuff work? Can you buy it for either and it works both ways, or do you have to buy the XBone version?

You just have to buy the standard digital version on either Xbox One or the Win 10 store. Honestly there aren't a lot of concrete details on how all this works so I've just pre-ordered games on X1 to be safe. Theoretically if it says "Xbox Play Anywhere" somewhere on the store page you should be good to go. Gears 4 will be the ultimate test of this cross platform bullshit.

LOL! Fucking fantastic. I haven't gotten really far in Mafia 3 yet. The opening couple of hours are some of the most compelling in all of video games this year for me. I feel like the game won't keep up that pace but I really love the way the story, characters, music, setting, and everything is presented in documentary style. I also really love the way racism and that era of America is portrayed so far.

The presentation, cutscenes, and acting are top notch.

Once the game opens up, it gets repetitive. You focus on taking over rackets (2 in each district), then when you've done that the big mission to take over the district appears. Taking over rackets are generally the same, with a bit of variation. There's usually a couple 'destroy these', 'kill these', 'interrogate these', and 'follow these'. The big district mission is where each one shines, but the gameplay leading up to them can get boring. I'm enjoying the game, but when you're not seeing unique, story driven stuff, it feels like a game from last gen, almost like a serious Saints Row 3 or something.

Gears 4 multiplatform works well. The only restriction is no multi platform versus outside of private games for obvious reasons. Did some horde on PC with some mouse snipers and they were popping heads like it was no effort. Nice that I don't need to jump on the xbone to play with my pals who are console only.

Runs well too. GTX 1080 crushes it. But a laptop with a 960m can handle it at 60fps with no issues. They clearly put a lot of work into optimizing the game on both platforms. That was expected but it's still nice to see and worth noting.

Not a fan of how they weakened the lancer and made the retro lancer a pickup only weapon. They recently boosted the Enforcer SMG weapon as well, making it the strongest starting weapon by a wide margin. The game needs a bit of rebalancing and the maps aren't quite as good as Gears 2 & 3. No crazy avalanches. Though there are a few interesting things to interact with in certain levels.

It's worth the cost in my opinion. A few tweaks and it'll be on par with the rest of the series. Fun campaign too. Might tick off purists but i'm enjoying it. Disappointed it's restricted to 2 players. Still it's well designed and fun to play.

It's not better than any of the previous games. Just different. Looking forward to seeing if the map packs and balance adjustments keep it fresh by next year.

Gears 4 has been fun. I was disappointed that the campaign was only 2 player but, whatever. still liked the story anyway.

As far as the multi player, i ain't touching that shit knowing that there are console players mixed in. Besides that, Gears was one of the most rage inducing games for me online so, there's that.

I basically just run Hoard. It damn good fun when your playing with friends, and actually isn't to bad if you get a good group of randoms on the multi player side of it.

It's Gears. I also don't like how it seems it take a ton of ammo to kill some enemies with the regular Lancer. I thought it was just me. Some of the newer weapons are cool like the Buzzkill and the Dropshot. What I really like doing is ripping the weapons off the Gaurdians. The rocket launchers and Tri shot is fun as shit.

We'll be attempting insane horde soon in the future. We cleared hardcore awhile back. Best way to battle is have a main base. Then have a tiny minimally secured base. Certain bosses will wipe out your expensive shit.

Since I don't know where else to fucking post this...

I got a new Zotac 1080 GTX, because it was 200 bucks off and it came with Gears of FUCKING WAR 4. Now all I need to do is get the rest of my monstrous rig, and put it together. I don't have Windows 10 anymore, downgraded back to 7, which I regret now because I can't download Gears yet, but it wasn't as stable of an OS when I needed it to be, so there's that.

I should have the rest of this PC bought and built by December, right after Black Friday. I have off all of December from work, so I will be selling off probably 4 of my consoles and my gaming PC just to make up for the new rig. Master Race, here I come.

I must say though, playing on the GTX 1080 on a dual core processor is kind of like driving a Ferrari on the LA highways at 530pm. It's got all of the balls in the world, but I'd never be able to use it because of all the bottlenecks in front of me. Soon^TM though.

Haha that is odd putting a GTX 1080 in a Dual Core. Might work okay on DX 12 games however as they are far less CPU intensive. But again Win 10 only. That is a rough spot you're in.

I don't know how many of you feel about ace combat, but it's a series I always enjoyed since air combat. I really fell in love with the series with ace combat five and how they actually managed to tell a compelling story in a flight game.

I really wasn't interested when they brought it to the real world though. It felt like they wanted to cash in on the Call of duty deal.
