The assumption that online games in general are populated mostly by males has remained somewhat accurate for years. Recent statistics begin to diminish the male domination myth in gaming culture. Although a worldwide number of male gamers still dominates over female (52% by 48%);[15] women accounted for more than half of the players of certain games.
First, I tried the campaign on insane after finally trying the end all be all gears difficulty on gears: judgement, which was honestly a lot cheaper in how it kills you when it does (A LOT of frags). The story is still engaging to me, the game play is every bit as polished as any you could mention, and beating it was honestly satisfying. It wasn't miserable, and it wasn't easy. It was a firm lesson in strategy and pacing yourself. Great campaign, and arcade mode gives that little bit of competitive edge when playing with friends to really push it over the edge into my top 5 all time favorites.

The timeline of events is always crucial in franchises. When it comes to GoW, it is more important than it is with any other franchise you know. Since Gears 5 will be the sequel to GoW 4, it is significant to remember when the events of GoW4 are taking place. The broad time jump that happened after the third title of the series is the main reason we need to keep track of the events.
Gears of War: The Board Game was released in 2011 by Fantasy Flight Games. Designed by Corey Konieczka, it is a cooperative game for up to four players, including the option for solo play. Each player takes control of a COG (represented by a miniature figure pre-painted in red), fighting their way through randomly generated maps filled with Locust soldiers (represented by a miniature figure pre-painted in light gray). These are controlled by an AI deck of cards: after each player finishes his or her turn, he or she draws a card from the AI deck and takes actions for each Locust creature. Players play cards and roll dice to take actions as well as to resolve shooting and defense. The game proceeds until the player team successfully completes the mission. There are seven different missions, each featuring different objectives and enemies in randomly generated map layouts. Since its launch, the game has received one expansion, Mission Pack 1, which brought more weapons, two new missions and new enemies, including General RAAM.

The design of online games can range from simple text-based environments to the incorporation of complex graphics and virtual worlds.[3] The existence of online components within a game can range from being minor features, such as an online leaderboard, to being part of core gameplay, such as directly playing against other players. Many online games create their own online communities, while other games, especially social games, integrate the players' existing real-life communities.[4]

Gears of War is still a lot of fun and thanks to this excellent remaster, it feels as fresh and exciting as when it was first released. This is a great way to get up to speed or reacquainted with the story in anticipation of Gears 4 next year. For Xbox One owners, there's no reason this shouldn't be in your library. Highly recommend.
Jump up ^ "Cliff Bleszinski - His Last Gears Of War Interview". NowGamer. GamesTM. 2012-10-04. Retrieved 2014-02-02. Cliff Bleszinski: Yes, the original game was a Battlefield/Enemy Territory-style game that featured classes, landscapes, vehicles, and was far more multiplayer oriented. Soon after playing the heck out of games like Resident Evil 4 and Kill.Switch, we realised we wanted a game that had a fun, summer, blockbuster-feeling campaign, with integrated co-op, and a solid, if simple, multiplayer.

We've had a blast with Gears of War 4 so far. The game's campaign is a cinematic action romp that feels modern while staying true to Gears' classic gameplay, and its versus multiplayer provides lots of options for both hardcore and casual shotgun-slayers. The new Horde 3.0 mode nearly justifies a purchase alone, as you can easily lose hours strategizing while mowing down waves of enemies with your friends. We'll have a final verdict on Gears 4 soon, but if you love the series or are simply craving a great third-person shooter for both solo and multiplayer, the game is well worth it.
In January 2017, former American football player Lenwood Hamilton sued Epic Games, Microsoft, and voice actor Lester Speight, stating that the character of Cole Train in the series steals from his own likeness and voice. The lawsuit contends that elements of Cole's character, including being of African-American descent, having played in professional sports, and elements of the character's clothings were all elements representative of Hamilton, and voice analysis shows that Speight's delivery of Cole's lines matches too close with Hamilton's line. Hamilton had stated that Speight had approached him around 1998 about a video game, though Hamilton had turned it down due to the violence that would be in the game.[68]

Determined to save her mother, Kait demands that Marcus lead them to her. He takes the group to Tollen Dam, where they discover that the burial site has been converted into a Swarm hive. Realizing that the hive's defenses are too formidable for them to breach on their own, the group fights their way to a radio antenna, where Marcus calls for the assistance of Augustus Cole (Lester Speight), Damon Baird (Fred Tatasciore) and Samantha Byrne (Claudia Black), with the latter two now being lovers. Baird, now a famed industrialist and the creator of the DeeBees, brings a pair of mech suits that J.D. and Kait use to fight their way into the hive.[7] Inside, they find Reyna has been forcefully integrated into the hive's network, and removing her would result in her death. Despite this, Reyna requests that Kait end her life, which she tearfully does. She then inherits her mother's amulet, which had belonged to Kait's grandmother. However, upon closer inspection, it bears a resemblance to the symbol of the Locust Queen Myrrah - implying that Reyna was her daughter and Kait is her granddaughter.
Why not share all of the facts here tc? There's a lot to this you're not even mentioning. You keep talking about this passionate Gears community as if they're not partially to blame here. In Gears 3, there are a lot of skins you can unlock. People could either download a save editor or a modded save and get access to all of the skins. That's the community you're defending here. They don't want thieves stealing their stuff again.
The Outsiders were the new version of the Stranded group of GoW4. The significance of the Outsiders lies entirely on their connection to Kait’s back-story. Of course, some notable characters of the game such as JD Fenix and Kait Diaz herself are members of the Outsiders. However, you might need to remember that Kait’s parents led a group of Outsiders. Since we are going to witness Kait’s full story in Gears 5, it is essential to have that in the back of our minds.

Game play is challenging enough to have you actually plan and orchestrate surgical attacks and that is what I and every other war style FPS player looks for in this type of title. The casual "rush-in" style of guns-blazing, blind-fire attacks will almost always result in you getting hammered later on in the game. The difficulty and computer AI gives the player a little room to breath with a diminishing curve as the game progresses.

"It's not [us] re-creating Gears as a third-person shooter on a phone," Fergusson says. "This is a MOBA rush, authentically mobile-first genre, for the mobile audience. Again, it's not about just porting something over and getting it running on a new platform, it's actually saying, 'What are the strengths of that platform, and how can we make a Gears experience for those players?'"
Act 2: Nightfall - Dom suggests that the fastest way to reach the mine would be to borrow a Junker from a Stranded named Franklin, who owes Dom a favor from deals in the past. After reaching the camp, Franklin reluctantly agrees to give him the Junker on the condition that Cole and Baird stay behind at the Stranded camp to help them defend against the Locust. Dom agrees, and he and Marcus head across the ruined city as nightfall descends, bringing out the Kryll, carnivorous bat-like creatures that attack anything in the dark. The two fight through the Locust forces to reach Aspho gas station, where the Junker is kept, and then drive it back to the camp, defending themselves from the Kryll with an ultraviolet light equipped on the Junker that can kill the Kryll. The two arrive at the Stranded camp just in time to help defend it from a large Locust onslaught. Once the situation is secured, the team moves onward towards the mining facility in the Junker.
Next thing I tried was versus, where the pace is obviously a bit faster. Granted, there is a firm belief that cheap shotgun blasts to unaware opponents is a skill move, and I'm going to find that to be ridiculous in any game that has that dimension, but it isn't impossible to combat. Otherwise, the versus is engaging and it does seem fairly well balanced. There's not a lot of excessive explosives, there's always a chance of surviving your encounter. It's just a matter of figuring out what it is and if you can come away with a kill in the process. Good stuff.
For anyone who owns a Xbox360 and is not playing Gears of War right now, it is imperative that you do so. Gears of War is an epic game created by.. well.. Epic Games. It is a 3rd person shooter that utilizes a somewhat tactical feel. You fight an alien/monster horde called the Locusts, and old-school shooter style, there are large bosses you must kill every so often. The online is more team based than the campaign mode, because you can revive your teammates (if you can reach them in time), and four guns always wins against one.
As for this classic first run of the series that WAS thoughtfully ported to the PC, it is great and one that you can play over and over and over. It's discontinued now so if you haven't snapped one up for your collection yet I'd do it soon before they are all gone. Even almost 5 years later and after it has been discontinued this game has never dropped off in price due to it's popularity.

Accordingly, Gears Tactics will be tailored to PC play, to better serve the traditional mechanics of the genre. Unlike the third-person real-time adrenaline rush of the 'Gears Prime' entires, tactical games require a wider view of the area of engagement, specific movement paths and placement of units, ultimately rewarding players for patience and planning rather than bravado – all elements improved by the precision offered by mouse-and-keyboard controls.
The Coalition is going big for Gears of War 4 multiplayer, with lots of modes for casual and competitive players alike. Classic versus gametypes like Team Deathmatch and King of the Hill are joined by new modes such as Arms Race, in which you need to rack up kills with specific guns, and Dodgeball, in which scoring a kill lets you bring a downed teammate back. The game will have a robust ranking system that ensures you're playing with similarly skilled opponents, and if you're worried about getting slaughtered online, you can team up with your friends against AI opponents.

Ryan McCaffery of IGN gave the game 9.2 out of 10, stating in his verdict: "I never expected to compare Gears of War 4 to The Force Awakens, but I couldn’t be happier to do so. Like the latest chapter in the story from a time long ago in a galaxy far, far away, Gears of War 4 is directed by a new generation of creators, shares a lot of similar narrative structures to the beloved first piece of the trilogy it succeeds, and is an experience you’ll walk away from with a big smile on your face – in campaign, Versus, and Horde modes alike. It’s about as good of a franchise reawakening as I could’ve hoped for." He also added "Gears of War 4 plays it fairly safe but brilliantly executes on a variety-packed campaign and meaty multiplayer suite."[45]

Merely six weeks after the COG and UIR agreed to an armistice, the Locust Horde unexpectedly emerge from Sera’s depths and begin assaulting all human cities. The Locust Horde easily overwhelms the already battleworn COG forces during this surprise attack, referred to as 'Emergence Day'. The COG retreats to the Jacinto Plateau, their last bastion, and reluctantly bombard their own cities with the Hammer of Dawn to halt the Locust Horde’s offensive. The ensuing scorched earth tactic destroys much of Sera’s cities and human population. The COG continues to operate out of Jacinto, while the surviving humans, known as Stranded, are left to wander through Sera’s charred ruins. During the chaos of Emergence Day, Marcus led an unauthorized and failed rescue mission to save his father, Adam, from the Locust assault. The COG's leadership court martials Marcus and sentences him to life imprisonment.
