Kinda excited to see the changes made to the overall HUD and player designs. The story itself is finished not really seeing how they could extend it any more so any new installments will more than likely be set in the past to explain issues that the books brought forward.
This game dosen't seem to be evolving the gears series a whole lot its more like refinement but i actually like that. Was reading up on some of the changes and it sounds like they have had a huge focus on the balancing the MP. I mean gears 3 MP was great but i think everyone knows it had issues things like the sawed off and retro lancer hell just lancers in general being too OP and that's just the tip of the iceberg. A lot of these things are being changed / nerfed. Like the sawed off doesn't have 260 deg blast radius anymore and the you cant 2 piece with the retro anymore. no more getting insta downed by perfect reloaded lancers(there's no more damage boost just speed). Taking some of the fraudulence out of the game and putting more skill back in like the good ol days sounds good to me. Long story short so far im def looking forward to this game in whats looking to be a bland year for gaming that is at least until holiday season rolls around again. Now if the could only somlve what has been gears greatest enemy imo. lagggg even with servers gears 3 was far from ideal so i hope they can improve there.
It's too bad that Judgement has gone in a completely different (and wrong) direction from where the Gears 3 MP was headed. I won't be purchasing this, instead I'll stick to playin gears 3.
This is kinda neat. I already have Gears 1,2,3 so Walmart including 2 or 3 is somewhat interesting. Plus pre-ordered include Gears of War 1. If you need to catch up on Gears of War then this is a good way to do so.
Meh, I'm just going to wait for the inevitable complete collection with all the games, and hopefully all the DLC.
Yes thts a good deal. But in the UK we got it better. See, with the new Ratchet and Clank you can get 12 Flamehouse Horseburgers for half price or a free Findus Lasagne with every pre-order LOL
I'm sure there's a lot of copies fo Gears sequels that never been sold, since is a higly announced AAA game this always happens. Now is a good time to make use of them.
@santinegrete Jeez .... seriously .... it is just copying a file onto CD/DVD or straightforward digital download. You don't need unsold physical copies. Do you still live in the 1980s or something?
The preorders must be really low and Epic must be really motivated to raise them.
First, Gears 1 for free and now, Gears 2 or 3? Amazing, Gears 3 barely came out 2 years ago, it's still a top 10 game on Live, and they're giving it away for free?
I'll get judgement down the road for $20, it's not even developed by the main GeoW team. It's the ODST of the series, and everyone can sense it. That can be great depending on who you are of course.
@CaptainGamespot Hell the mere fact that SO FAR this is the first Gears Of War game that has no special collector's edition announced. If this stays true til launch day, then to ME that alone speaks volumes for how much this spin-off is def like an ODST of the series & even then ODST had a limited edition version. I'm skeptical about Judgment's production values etc but I'll get it day 1 regardless.
@CaptainGamespot Hey, ODST was a fun distraction... that I picked up for $20.
I agree though, after the atrocity that was Bulletstorm, the new devs don't have much credibility.

@Plasmid_king lol now that you mention it, quite true plus it just hit me that Gears 1 and 2 don't cost much anymore.. but HEY you still get 3 free games.. good deal for someone who's new to franchise
I'm pretty sure the employees at my local Wal-Mart would just give me a blank stare if I tried to pre-order a game there.
Oh, I'm sorry. I thought if I preorder this game in Walmart I would get an AR that shoots real bullets.
@g1rldraco7 think of it this way, u get a freebie game to take to gamestop for some trade in value, even if its just $10 its still credit you didnt have.
No need to preorder. Buy it when it first comes out, like on the day of first thing the morning, and you will likely get it anyway. I always do. It's how I got the Limited Edition of Dead Space 3. Heck, we still have copies of the Resident Evil 6 Limited Edition
@Voice_of_Wisdom Oh shut up! You guys got steam.
Thats not bad actually. I might have to consider this since i been thinking of jumping back into Gears of War MP again.
@Enterprise-E yeah nothing says "hey im having a great time" like a sawed off shotgun and pistol fest. :)
