Our Gears of War UE PC videos

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition took its time to be released and we must say we expected a lot more in terms of performance. There seems to be a problem with the frame rate everytime the game must stream the next part of the level in campaign mode. This results in noticeable frame drops that are hard to accept on high end rigs like Miguel's (Intel i7 5930K @ 4.6 GHz, Asus X99-Deluxe, 16 GB DDR4 1600 MHz, NVIDIA Gigabyte GTX 980 Ti G1 GAMING 6 GB @ 1492/7200 MHz). Also disappointing is the fact that all the game's cutscenes are 30 fps videos, just like on Xbox One. We have a bunch of videos ready for you guys so you can see for yourself and make up your own mind about the port.

So it's Windows Store exclusive, app-like distribution? No thanks.

Yeah.. they might get me to buy Quantum Break but I can resist a port of a game that's already on the platform :D

I agree with the sentiment. The Universal Windows App platform is a terrible way to distribute full-scale applications and games. And it's also a move away from the freedom that appeals to users of the platform to begin with. There's a reason I have a PC instead of a Mac.

Why are you not playing with a mouse?

I'm not playing but mouse and keyboard suck balls if you ask me. ;)

I never played Gears of War with a mouse so it felt weird to me, and I had not enough time to accustomate to this so I played with an Xbox One pad.

Shame about how this is being distributed for PC gamers but I got this for $10 on Black Friday for Xbox and I was really surprised by how much fun this game still is. The new textures etc have been done really well. Game looked awesome.

Too accurate and intuitive? ;)

That said: Use whatever you friggin' like!

Might be true for the mouse, but keyboard feels awful and the opposite of intuitive to me. I stopped playing with one after I sold my PC 1512 in the early 90s. :D

You're right though, everyone should be able to play the way they want without being asked "why blablablabla". PC players... :p

Phill Spencer already adressed that complaint. Although he didn't say what he will do, he said he will improve certain things for games in the Windows Store. I don't think MS ever had a better executive than Spencer. He is really trying to support PC gaming again. But this game must be a bad port. So negative points for him now.

Then I'm going to have to say no.... he didn't. I'll believe it when I see it.

Their agenda is harming DirectX too: http://www.pcper.com/reviews/General-Tech/PC-Gamin...

Hi, Drift! I just wanted to suggest a gamepad + mouse combination for First-Person and/or Third-Person Shooters - if you're not playing on the couch or have a wireless mouse with a table close to the couch.

It might seem like a pain in the ass, but it gives you the movement and easy-of-use of a gamepad with the precision and accuracy of a mouse. This definitely helps on the hardest difficulty on most shooters, when precision and accuracy are very important for survival.

I also mostly play with a gamepad, since 90% of the games I play are better with a gamepad than mouse + keyboard. Just wanted to give you an alternative to keyboard with gamepad + mouse.

You aren't the only one. I don't like the KB when it comes to character control either. Aiming with a mouse is a different kettle of fish, though.

This day will be remembered as the day Microsoft launched an attack which destroyed Steam and whatever other crappy services there are out there.

Muhahaha!!

lol, that made my day. it's an inconvenience if you're a console gamer at heart.

I really didn't like the fact that the whole mass effect trilogy on pc was mouse and keyboard only. thank god for pc mods though, the Nexus mass effect trilogy controller mod was a god send.

When Xbone two is released, which they hinted may not be too far it will be win10 box. I think they are doing steam box type with various config.

In future say 3yrs from now when most people move to Win10 on PC and Xbone two which will also use Win10. They will become huge. Microsoft has the $ to buy devs make exclusive games on Win10. Think about GTA or COD exclusive to Win10 that will change things. IMO they do not care about the console. They are interested on just Win10 as the platform, used by most either boxed console or PC. TBH I do not like this but I think this is what they are doing.

They said the same thing about Vista, marker. While the gamers may not be able to resist the higher direct x gimmick. People who use their computers for working and require efficiency and speed, most certainly will not be swapping to win10.

We've been here before. And in its current implementation UWA+W10 is worse than GFWL.

Not that there's anything wrong with working (or gaming) in Windows 10, and it has had a fantastic adoption rate.

Being free helps a lot.

funny...seeing as it hasn't happened in the last 10 years despite MS having just as much cash to throw around.... the most they ever splurge on is timed exclusivity, be it content (see GTA expansions) or games in general (see tomb raider) or worse of all, they buy an IP and not the devs who are responsible for it :/

if they actually bought the developers they wanted they'd have a much more interesting offering when it came to games. hell, halo might actually be good still?
