Gears of War 3!!! - Page 3

post #61 of 943
I actually can't believe how popular Portal is. It came with the Orange Box for me when I purchased it for the PC and I haven't finished it. Still hard for me to get into but I guess one of these days I'll go back and beat it.

Back on topic. PUMPED about this game and Gears of War was THEE only reason why I purchased a 360. Now I'm kind of pissed that they would announce this game so far ahead (remember the CliffyB on The Late Night with Jimmy Fallon?) then delay. I'm with a lot of the press for video game journalist that are stating that video game developers should just not even bother with announcing a release date till you far firm with it. It just pissy off the rabid fanbase when you push it back.

and some devs are much worse than others about release date pushes

the bad ones I don't believe a date till I see it in store with my own eyes

Cheer up. This just gives you more time for Dead Space 2! Release date Jan 25 2011...

Can the news get any better?: http://forums.epicgames.com/showthread.php?t=746684

Dedicated servers and host migration. Woohooo......I think Epic wants the Gears series to go out with a bang like Halo......

Oh my god, and I thought the executions in Gears 2 were rediculous. They made them even more brutal and graphic....can't wait till next fall....

Who wouldn't want to test that out? Microsoft today announced that the Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta will start in mid-April -- presumably for early-access Bulletstorm owners. The public tryout will feature three, "new" versus modes and four maps (to be decided by a community vote this month). No end date for the beta was given.

Voting for the beta maps opens today on the Gears of War Facebook page and ends Monday, February 28.

Here's a new beta preview... looks really great!!
post #69 of 943
Alright, I LOVED the first Gears of War game, I can't count the number of multiplayer matches I played with my friends. I was so excited and then horribly let down by Gears 2. The too over the top gameplay, extremely buggy multiplayer, and lack of unranked public matches really irked me, which lead to me selling the game off pretty quickly.

I'm hoping that Epic learned their lesson and has "fixed" it with Gears 3. On Saturday I went ahead and swung by Gamestop to pre-order so I could get into the beta. I'll probably cancel it either way, if it sucks I won't buy it, if it's good I'll get it from Amazon. I hate that the beta is a Gamestop exclusive though.

Who else is betaing-it?
post #70 of 943
to make gears 3 work they should remove the ranks cuz way to many people are cheating to get the high rank the stupid wings
post #71 of 943
I hated playing ranked in Gears 1 or 2, Gears 1 had the public lobbies that you could start with your friends and anyone could join afterwards. The fact that they made it private so the starting group could play killed Gears 2, I want it to be like the original. That's how I met pretty much all of my early Xbox friends.
post #72 of 943
Sorry, late to the party. Is the beta already out? Would it be to late to pre-order and join in?
post #73 of 943
Beta starts on the 25th, you've got plenty of time to get it ordered.

Same feelings. I used to play private matches with a group of friends one or two nights a week with Gears 1. It was a lot of of fun. GOW 2 was alright, I had some fun with horde mode, but I didn't play it for long.

I should have the beta this Friday the 15th, but we'll see. It'll be the 18th at the latest with the people who bought bulletstorm.

The other way to get onto the Beta is by getting bulletstorm. I really like bulletstorm as a game in itself, so if you can find it cheap, its worth picking up. It has the EA online pass stuff, so I am not sure what would happen if you get a used copy.

Also the Beta for Bulletstorm owners starts 1 week earlier (April 18th I believe).
post #76 of 943
I may have missed it, but I didn't see this posted anywhere. It's the list of beta unlocks.


Beta Tester Medal: Complete one match in the beta to unlock the Beta Tester medal, which will carry over to your gamer profile in the final game. The Beta Tester title will be featured in the "Gears 3" multiplayer lobby as well.

Thrashball Cole: Complete 50 matches in any game type to unlock the Thrashball Cole character variant in the beta. Once unlocked, complete 10 matches as Thrashball Cole during the beta and the character will carry over to your gamer profile in the final game.

Gold-Plated Retro Lancer: Show your ultimate "Gears of War" fandom by unlocking the Gold-Plated Retro Lancer. Complete 90 matches in any game type to unlock it for the beta, and score 100 kills with it once unlocked to carry the exclusive weapon skin over to your gamer profile in the final game.

Flaming Hammerburst: Complete one match by Sunday, April 24 and unlock this weapon variant.

Flaming Lancer: Complete one match during the week of April 25 and unlock this weapon variant.

Flaming Sawed-Off Shotgun: Complete one match during the week of May 2 to unlock this weapon variant.

Flaming Gnasher Shotgun: Complete one match during the week of May 9 to unlock this weapon variant.

footage is always incredible - let's see how the game actually holds up....
post #79 of 943
So you Bulletstorm folk get access come this Monday I hear? I expect initial impressions! I used to be quite good at Gears 1 but considering it's been what, almost 4 years since I've played it to any amount, I'm probably going to be awful.

Correct. Those who purchased the Bulletstorm epic edition can get into the beta earlier on 04/18. I like Bulletstorm as well and I am looking forward to the Gears beta.

freaking awesome! See you on the 18th.
post #82 of 943
Only two more days!
post #83 of 943
Doesn't it begin on 18th for those who bought Bulletstorm and the 25th for pre-orders? Today is the 13th + 2 days = the 15th...am I missing something?

I was thinking the same thing. It's Monday.
post #85 of 943
I'm downloading the beta now. Hopefully I can get a few games in later. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

huh? I thought it was opening on Monday?

Preliminary Report.

There are 3 game modes, Team deathmatch, Capture the leader, and king of the hill for both public and ranked matches.

You can start with the lancer, hammerburst, or retro lancer in slot 1. And the sawed-off or the gnasher for slot 2.

You have Marcus and Dominic available for the cog side. Anya Stroud, Cole, Damon, and Cole Train are unlockable by completing so many matches. There are two available characters and 3 unlocks on the drone side.

There are 4 maps. The arena is a shotgun fest. Other than that the game plays solid and I'm pretty terrible so far.

Well in that case, I think we will be expecting a full review of the preview

Sweet, keep us posted Monger!

Oh, how big is the download? How's the latency (one of my biggest gripes with Gears 2)?
