Dont get me wrong, I generally enjoy the Lego games, and applaud this one for hitting an original story. However, the story seems to be slow paced, and it shows where it is a Wii U port (the shape of your communicator that just HAPPENS to look like a Wii U gamepad). Honestly, the humor in this one is nice, and I'll probably go back and co-op it with the wife at some point. Just glad I got the achievement so I can come back to it later

 

Same here. Loved the Star Wars and Marvel series but found this has a totally different pace. I'll eventually go back to play it but I'm having too much fun stealth killing in ME: Shadow of Mordor .

Got to play a little horde earlier. Didn’t have any connection issues myself but everyone left the game by about the 5th round. I thought it was possible for people to join mid game but 13 rounds in it was still just me and bots.

A prime example of what I griped about earlier.  This is the Act 2 boss, so quite a spoiler.

Collectibles still aren't tracking properly for me, as well as a number of achievements.  I think I should have Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, though it's only at 20%.  I didn't realize it showed progress until I got what should've been the 3rd or 4th heavy weapon and it went from 0 to 20.  I should be nearly finished with the Reject executions, as well but it's only at 49%.  Stopped tracking for me last night at 43%, got way more than 6 today.  A couple hours ago, the devs said an update was pushed that should fix stat tracking, but would take a while to process everything since release.  We'll see.

 

AI and stat complaints aside, I've really enjoyed the story so far.

 

Edit : Some of my achievement tracking has updated.  Reject executions jumped to 76%, which may be accurate, but seems a little low.  Gimme, Gimme, Gimme is only at 60%, so that's off.  Relics of the Past is only at 5% (1/17), but should be at 23% or 24% (4/17).

Gears keeps locking up on random checkpoint saves. Then crashing. Cool.... and sometimes starts a few checkpoints back...

I have read that you need to play Gears 5 before the 16th to get the Terminator DLC. But if we have the Ultimate edition installed, then it would be included right, without needing to be played before 16th?

Yeah, think I'm gonna leave Gears 5 alone until it's good and patched a few months down the road. The game froze when I went to the dashboard and returned. Upon restart I found myself several checkpoints back from where I should have been which was a waste of a good hour or so. Collectibles aren't getting counted properly and achievements are behaving erratically. Glad I only spent the $2 to upgrade my current Gamepass subscription to Ultimate because if I paid $80 I would be livid.

Yeah, might do that just incase anyway.

Was there a quest for NFL20? I thought there was one but I can't see it now.

Was just trying to buy the new plants vs zombies game and every time it waits then takes me back to dash. Anybody else having this problem?

This game gave me tons of problems trying to buy on release day last week. The app didn’t work either. I finally tried the website and that worked, but it’s the only game in recent memory not to auto download. Wonky for sure, but I recommend trying Xbox.com if you have not done so. That may do the trick.

Horde is fun, but the character selection process isn't clear. Gears 4 had a well defined class system, Gears 5 has 'hero characters' which share traits to the class system. But, the game won't let you have duplicates in the same game, and if I cycle to a character someone else is using, it forces me back to Marcus instead of cycling through. It's really, really annoying, I just want to play as Linda Hamilton.

Yep. Twice now in the first two chapters, I've hit "reload last checkpoint" but the game doesn't reload, it stays on the read death screen until I exit to the main menu. The main menu takes forever to load even though it's just the menu, and then the checkpoint loads a few actual saves back. During 'Diplomacy' the checkpoint save icon never went away after picking up Jack's first upgrade, and that's where the game returned me to despite proceeding to chapter 3. Rebooted, save icon got stuck AGAIN right before the first firefight.

 

There's the DNA of a really great game here, but these issues ruin the experience pretty quickly. It's especially frustrating when Gears 4 was so polished, both technically and gameplay wise.

I'm experiencing the random constant checkpoint saves as well. It seems to hit when I check the dashboard. I've got two solid full crashes out of it today alone. I'm playing on an X. I'll boot it up on my pc later to see if it's an Xbox issue or and Xbox/PC issue, thus a game issue that needs patched.

Do you play in multiple xboxs? I play back and forth between the one in my room and the one in my living room. I thought the saves were getting messed up in the cloud. I guess it's not just that since a lot of people are having the issue. I've lost a lot of progress on that death screen where I can't reload the chapter. Luckily the game is fun so I've been fine replayjng sections

Finished control. Control wise (lol) it's the best remedy game to date. Graphics and sound all high marks. The story however is just alright and I wasn't really into many of the characters. Id say it's on par with quantum break as far as overall enjoyment goes but a much more solid game in terms of overall package. Max Payne 2 is still my favorite remedy game followed by Alan Wake

Totally disagree with your assessment of the story. It's my favorite story to date in a game. Better than Uncharted, Last of Us, etc.

Nope, I only have one X1 currently. Apparently the save issues are related to the same server problems they've been having all weekend, since the saves get sent to the game's servers for stat tracking as part of the 'Tour of Duty.' Which is fine if it worked correctly, but online problems impacting single player content is a bunch of nonsense. That also explains issues with achievements, since they depend on XBL servers reading save files.

Thanks this explains why it's just been happening this weekend. Didn't have these issues the previous days. Sucks that it affects single player.

Don't rage too hard when you go back & get the correct code.

Debating whether to play Gears 5 co-op with a buddy in a few hours or just wait for Microsoft to fix their server issues. Seems a lot of 1st party games that have multiplayer/an online component which ALSO launches on game pass, have problems server side for a bit. Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, now Gears 5.....did Forza Horizon 3 have issues? That game kinda flew under my radar and I just havent caught up to my backlog

There isn't a separate download.  Just fire up the game.
