Ugh.... another map pack....800 points again....
No buying this time.

I want single player DLC (new chapter anyone?).

:(

Usually I like snow... but I think its too much when a whole map pack is filled with snowy maps. I mean... I kinda get the feeling that the maps look all the same, what happened to the variety we saw in Gears 1? Bullet March, Subway etc. Feels like these maps have all the same environment, lighting and so on... well well, seems like no1 else care, but I miss more refresheing and grapically unique maps...

I agree. I was looking through these thinking, are these all the same map? You can't really tell the difference very quickly.

There is WAY WAY WAAAAAAAY too much grey in these maps. Seriously ridiculous.

But hey, I don't play nearly enough Gears to justify a purchase of any map pack at the minute. Regardless of anything else.

Last sshot seems strange - why are there 6 COGs on a map?

No sale. Where's the singleplayer DLC? Gimme!

The first Gears of War was a lot better in multiplayer, that is why I am playing the first Gears of war now instead of the crappy part 2.

They just released a new title update that fixes many issues with multiplayer. Not that I care what you play, just letting people know that it has been greatly improved since launch.

Wow they're recycling yet another map from the PC version of Gears of War 1 (first 2 images in gallery). Obviously they've changed it so it's snowy instead of set at daytime however. Epic are certainly taking liberites with what they expect people to pay for considering their game is so broken. It could all be a Gears of War team thing though, since they were happy enough to release a huge content update for UT3 on PC and PS3 (with more than double the content of this and the previous GOW2 DLC combined) for free. They certainly like to ripoff 360 owners.

It's Gears of War, brah. Gray is the only color that's manly enough to use in this game.

Maybe they should make the effort to make dedicated servers so it can be everything it should be

Then I'll consider going back to it

Your right, I agree with you.

About the game

    Tiz @KORNdog: I'm hearing the word 'bittersweet' being used a lot in conjunction with the ending. Could be a union of all the Kingdoms facing the long night with casualties in the millions. (8 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Tiz: seems like a cool ending. and so far the proposed spin off is a prequels. maybe there will be nothing left to make a sequel. (8 Hours ago)

  • Tiz
    Tiz @scoobs0688: How likely is an ending where the Night's King just rolls over everything south of the wall? The last shot being a panning shot of all our favourite characters with blue eyes. (10 Hours ago)
