PostSubject: Gears of War 3 Discussion   Wed Apr 20, 2011 1:12 am

I'm not sure how many people here are actually fans but I thought I'd post anyway.

I've been playing the beta thanks to having bought Bulletstorm (awesome game btw) and here's what I think so far.

Pros:
-Good variety of weapons
-Lots of stuff to unlock
-Uses dedicated servers

Cons:
-Retro Lancer has pretty bad recoil

And really that's about all the bad I can think of at the moment. There are only two maps right now, but it's also a beta, so I can't really call that a con.

If you have any questions, ask. ^_^

I've been in the Beta for a while thanks to Bulletstorm (which is an under-appreciated game I also love XD So far, I like Gears 3. There are some problems I find faulty, like the Retro Lancer, as CaptainYoruichi said. I certainly look forward to the full game. Noes Anyone else?

If you want to hang on to any of your retail unlocks
earned during the Beta, please do not delete your Gears 3 Beta saved
games—you can delete the Beta executable itself, but hang on to those
saves! (Step-by-step details below.)

To delete the Gears 3 Beta but leave your saves intact:

Go to the System Settings menu on your Xbox 360
Select “Memory”
Select “Games”
Select the Gears of War 3 Beta (507MB) and delete it.

Bulletstorm
Epic Editon Owners like myself if you go to your harddrive there's a
save file for Gears of War 3 beta - don't delete that.

I'm bummed that the beta ends today.
I've had so much fun with it.

Final thoughts:
Retro Lancer - the lunge kill is awesome, but the regular Lancer is so much easier to use.
Sawed off shotgun - the limited ammo and long reload make this gun appealing to me, personally.

Trenches - this map is pretty good, but needs less power weapons, IMO.
Thrashball - no problem with this map, really.
Checkout - the platform needs to be fixed for CTL, since you can't jump down with a meatshield
Old Town - no problems with this map, either

Overall, I think the multiplayer should be pretty good. I am also quite excited for the campaign.

Now I can keep what I unlocked for the full retail. Thanks for the info. XD Now I look forward to the full version in Sept. Wonder what the next few months will reveal for Gears 3, especially E3 next month. Noes

I want to see more campaign stuff. I've heard conflicting reports about which characters you'll be able to play as. I want to know if you'll be able to play as Sam or Anya in the campaign.

From what I've heard, you won't play as Marcus or Dom the entire time in the campaign. Players will also get their chance to play as Baird and/or Cole. About Anya or Sam, they might be for co-op, but I could be wrong. Question You definitely get to choose who you want to play as in the Multiplayer, of course. CantHearU

So, we're like, a day away from this game! 24 hours from now I will be waiting in line to get my copy at midnight. OMG so excited. Fangirl

Who besides me and FMS plans on getting it? I'd totally be down for some YoruSoi gaming nights.

I'm freakin excited for it. Noes Sadly, I'm not old enough to go to midnight releases for games, & I can't stay up tool ate for gaming. Mostly cuz I need the sleep. CantHearU But yeah, I'll definitely be playing Gears 3 for weeks.
Of course, the 1st thing I'll play is the campaign. I, like many other fans, would wanna know how it all ends. Or at least what happens to Carmine. Sweat

So I am about eight hours into the game and I love it. I haven't finished it yet.

My favorite part so far:

I hear it takes about 15-16 hours or so to beat it. Either way, I wanna enjoy it.

Dom... will not be forgotten. I never saw that coming. His death almost made me wanna cry, actually. Most video character tragedies aren't often done well, or show enough emotion at times, but this... it just touched my heart. Cry

Now all we gotta see is what happens to Carmine. I wasn't able to vote in the campaign for him to live or die, or if anyone else I know did & made their choice.

Now is it just me or do most weapons have WAY less ammo now? I understand everyone & thing is on the run & trying to survive now, what with Lambent going rampant. Reminds me of the Flood from Halo, somewhat.
