I really enjoyed the Gears 5 campaign personally. I'm perfectly happy to have them move forward along the same lines. I just hope that it's not as buggy next time around, that really diminished what was an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable experience for me.

How long ago did you do your play-through? I'm wondering if most of the bug have been patched out before I begin my play-through.

I played it at launch, so I would expect that those things have been ironed out by now. One would certainly hope so, anyway

I'm not sure what bugs he mentioned exactly, but I did encounter some bugs myself.

They were present between early access and launch but since launch I haven't encountered any more of them.

I hope there is no stealth segments in Gears 6. Gears is not built for stealth and it shows.

No stealth, open world or player choices please. Trying to fix what isn't broken by just throwing half-baked ideas mechanics from other games into the mix is awful. Don't get the hype for Gears 5 story either thb.. Stuff about origins of Locust was something we already knew but they just had to tie it to Kait. Meh.

But it literally does legwork in explaining stuff the OG trilogy ignored.  Saying they "just tie it to Kait" too easily disregards how solid the structure/pacing are integrated into the world around you.  There's a moderate wealth of details Kait's uncovered here that echo back on Sera's two previous worldwide conflicts: UIR v. COG and COG v. Locust.  

EDIT:  This is where I make the "it's no Great Shakes" qualifier, of course. :P

the bugs were server related or in like 95% of the cases.






More than 100,000 Xbox One machines were sold last week, according to retailers, which is just slightly behind what the console managed during Black Friday 2018. The All-Digital version was the most successful edition of them all.

- Engine is from Asobo.
- No casual mode.
- Around 200 people working on it, 120 from Asobo, around 20-30 from Microsoft and a few smaller teams.
- Currently at pre technical alpha stage of development.

I do hope that they add some kind of casual mode for the console release. I mean they pretty much have to, right? There are far too many controls in simulator mode for it to be playable on an Xbox controller, and while Xbox does support mouse and keyboard, I can't see them having an Xbox game that requires a mouse and keyboard to play. Having an option for simplistic controller based flight controls like Ace Combat, as well as a simulator option on mouse and keyboard, would be ideal for the console version.

Yeah I do agree with that having a mode just to chill and fly around would be a good addition and it also goes with the accessibility that MS have been pushing the past couple of years. I quite like everything about Elite Dangerous but docking your ship is like fighting the final boss in any JRPG whilst been massively under-leveled hah, It became more of an annoyance with the pure sim element of the games rather than just been a basic start/end of your journey.

I know those on hardcore sim side of things will hate the idea of an accessible mode but it really does open it up to way more players and the development focus will still always be on the sim side of things and wouldn't take away from those who love that.
