I've seen the Swarmak a few times as well as the choppers.

Awesome, I've yet to see them in any of my run through's so I look forward to see them Fuck up all our fortifications.

Last week's episode of What's Good Games has a pretty good in-depth discussion about Gears 5:
 
Listen on Soundcloud.com
 
Makes me wish I could get the GF to play co-op on it but its too gory for her. I showed her the Lancer when she asked and she immediately nope'd out of the room.

They really upped the gore in this one. I chuckled a few times when I first started playing campaign at the enemies exploding into bits.

 

Just started playing Escape today with randos. Seemed like a decent mode but not sure I can keep playing with randoms. That said, if anyone is looking to play some Horde/ Escape, hit me up! I don't really have anyone to play these modes with. :cry:

Well, did my first 50 wave run through of Gears 5 with a bunch of random's and one CPU. Man, it makes a huge difference playing a game where the one building is an actual engineer and not some jackass constantly building normal barricades. That and I really wish Jack had some kinda execution, I mean it's still fun electrocuting people until they explode, but was really hoping he'd have a finisher where he angrily just sits on someone and they explode.Also curious, but is there no Brumak/Swarmak or evil helicopter in this one for boss fights in this one? Or at least unless we get some for the seasonal updates.


I haven’t gone online with it in over a week but I wasn’t able to figure out how to easily select an engineer character last time I played. That was my favorite class in gears 4 and I was really frustrated they got rid of the class system.

There are only two engineers and that's Del and the female Spartan from Halo Reach. You can press start or whatever the hell the button is called on the main screen and I believe can preselect there for the character in the customization option. If not just when you go to Horde and it takes you to the lobby, I believe just place the cursor over the character and press either the shoulder buttons or left or right on the d-pad to select your character. Unless both are taken in which case send them a passive aggressive message saying it's fine and you wanted to be playing as Marcus anyways.

PSA to those doing the 10K quest: For the first 500 points part, apparently anything over 500 will NOT count towards the remaining 9500. I had 490 (didn’t know it), got a 40 point achievement, and my first step says “530/500”. Checked off that and the points, got my 500 points, and now the third step still says “0/9500”. So I guess shoot for as close to 500 as you can to maximize your earnings if you’re going for it.

Seriously, that's who the engineers are? Then that one rando I played with was a complete asshat! Went 1-50 and the guy playing Del just kept run & gunning while collecting a bunch of energy and not using any of it, that I could tell. Ended up with about 90k just stockpiled.

What's the active CAG crew for Gears Pop?  I see there's CAG XB and CAG XB2, which are both full, as well as CAG Gears and CAG Clan, which only have 5/50 members.

I haven't played in about a week but I'm in the XB2 group. It seems like either people don't play much, all stopped playing, or just play at different times. I'd be lucky to find someone to do horde mode with whenever I played. I know I've said it multiple times but restricting horde mode to only being between group members is only hurting it. 

 

After buying the Gears 5 controller followed by the Purple Fortnite controller the gears controller is superior in every way. That purple is barely visible and it doesn’t have the hand or trigger grips.

I'm a little bummed with the quality but I'm hoping the fortnite code will get me the majority of my money back. If it hadn't come with that I wouldn't have picked it up.

 

Spoilers for OT talk.

Yeah, I think that guy was being a dick for the sake of being a dick than. Also there's only one scout in the whole mode (Kait), which drives me insane because that was my preferred class in 4, but people seem to constantly pick her then leave the game so all the more reason I've taken up robot Jesus as my main instead.

 

Also I do wish the game gave an icon next to each character so you'd know what class they are like in the last one as oppose to having me learn like some kinda nerd.

 

One more thing, I wish Gears did something like driveatars from Forza where it picks up the play style of friends in Horde so I don't have to rush out and constantly save the dumb AI who doesn't understand the whole hunker down and wait in later rounds.

I "Think" I beat 15. I "think"? Though only ones I recall beating this year so far are Tokyo Mirage Sessions and Super Hot. Even than I've bought 98 games this year so far! I'll beat everything, you'll see! HAHAHAHAHAHA....

And looks like new Arkham game imminent? WB Games Montreal who made Arkham Origins tweeted a NON SUSPICIOUS 30 second clip of a building being shined on with the Bat signal.

 

 

Which when SLOWED DOWN and ENCHANCED shows this...

It's one of the shorter games on the list as well, but the minimum is two playthroughs for all the achievements. About 5-7 hours for the first and if you got all the EASILY MISSABLE collectables in the first run, then about 2-3 hours for the second playthrough. I screwed up and used trueachievement's collectable guide. While it was thorough (there are some items in ridiculous hiding spots), the guide spoiled every single jump scare and plot point. It kind of ruined the immersion, but it's my own fault.

 

I noticed the opening screens of the game mention binaural audio. Usually this type of audio works best with in-ear headphones and gives an amazing 3D audio effect. For my second playthrough I am going to have to make sure to try it out. If you've never checked out binaural audio, put some in-ear headphones on and play the following video. It will be super pleasing to you ASMR freaks ;)

 

Holy hell!

I’ve never played any horde mode until this game, mostly because I’d always wait for a deep discount on the games and by then I felt like it was too late to get into it. But I’m really loving it. So far I’ve been playing mostly as the Halo robot character Kat. I don’t know if I’m doing it right but it seems effective. I usually lockdown the area around the fabricator with fences and turrets covering each point of entry and leave the rest of the map unfortified. Then upgrade. I find that once I get to the later levels I spend most of my time just upkeeping my fortifications so I don’t want them too far out where I can’t get to them

Wife and I started Borderlands 3 last night, super fun again! We played 2 and all the DLC before. She wanted the Gunner so I did Beastmaster. We only played for an hour so I’m level 4 but I’m liking it so far!
