Been 'trying' to play for the last 2 days.

From Xbox Live being down, to Gears servers crashing non stop, frequent disconnects, save data being lost on and off, I would say this is a pretty bad launch for the Coalition.

It has significantly gotten better this afternoon.

I almost wonder if the 'early access' is just another beta to stress their servers for the 'real' launch on Tuesday.

That being said, the game is absolutely gorgeous in 4K, and buttery smooth at 60 fps on the X.

Xbox and PS3 Gamertag = Xerostomia
Wii = I'm too lazy to get the number

The game is probably one of the most beautiful games this side of God of war, but let's talk about the voice acting.
This is some of the best virtual acting I have seen in a game since the above mentioned GOW and Naughty Dog's catalog.

The Coalition really knocked it out of the park.

I downloaded this weekend but haven't had time to play yet. Reviews are praising the game so looking forward to it.

I love the game so far, but the third act has been my favorite so far.

Great to have a triple-A title that delivers: graphics, sound, gameplay. Best Gears yet.

You can add an additional 2 players. From what I can tell, though...one has to be "Jack" who doesn't have much use early on, but is upgraded through the game. We played some horde the other night, one of our guys picked Jack, he could pick us up, had a shock ability to utilize against the Swarm troops, and his "special" was to take over one of the Swarm. Not sure if this is possible in game playing him, however...
