The Titanfall beta sounds to be a lil bit shorter than the BF4 beta and we all know how that turned out, don't we? I just hope Titanfall doesn't come out as a broken POS like BF4.

Well here come the next four or five GOW games I guess. I think they need to have a complete overhaul plot wise. Spanking new everything , new threat, protagonist, just go all out and make sure the level design maintains its creativeness and do not be too afraid to go for the hardcore ridiculousness because that works in this world  (yes level where you are stuck in the mouth of a big, fat worm, I am looking at you). Lancers MUST stay though. Finally, any future GOW game needs to address its fluidity in movement. Be gone the days where Marcus controls like a stiff tank trying to turn itself in gallons of tar.

hehe snurky responses, not even sure what that means lol.

Excited about Titanfall on PC. I don't play much mp if any, but this sounds good. Skyrim has stolen my life as well.

I have to say I'm actually pretty sad to see the possibility of Gears of War coming to Playstation being completely diminished. I was a huge fan of the franchise and after all the hate people showed for Judgement I'm somewhat surprised Microsoft went out to keep this game. You better treat it well, or actually... Don't, I won't be able to play it anyway.

I'm glad to hear the news about Cyberpunk 2077. It seems that many developers these days feel that they need to add unnecessary multiplayer modes to their games and I'm happy that CD Projekt Red isn't one of them.

Great job Chris and get well soon Jess!

Another Gears story?

Now I really wanna know what storyline we're looking at. They've done sequels, conclusions and prequels..

you mean, what are consumers expecting to see from GoW Xbone AND PC ^^


cyberpunk has peaked my interest since the trailer first appeared and even though I have yet to play the witcher (too many back logged games) the fact that three of them have been released with great reviews is a good indicator that cyber punk will be great as well.

Sorry Cyberpunk, but 1st place RPG of the future was already taken in my mind when I saw the 2005 Mass Effect IP announcement trailer (the one that showed everyone that something new existed and that Bioware could do something post KOTOR).  Mass Effect 1 was my first RPG of the future and will therefore be my favorite (KOTOR doesn't count; that's my favorite RPG of the past).  Still, good luck with the slow-mo bullet stuff.

Xbox One, home of the best exclusives!

Let's start a campaign to donate an exclusive game for the other devices, because they don't have nothing to play, i will start:

Ryse for PS4 and PC, and Peggle for Wii U.

Nicely done, Chris.

Jess hope you shake this "thing" and get better soon (spoken in concerned parental voice).

@Vojtass Whaddaya want, "multee-player"? That works too. I kinda feel like I say it both ways on different occasions, but now I'm not so sure...

@krishnaV_ One the reasons I did not like the series was a lack of story. I am not sure if there is something I missed but the game seemed to assume I knew the plot without telling me one. It brodens out more in latter games but the whole thing seemed to be a cover mechanic and dressing with no depth. So a story would be a big inclusion to the series I think. Not really interested myself at this moment, but I hope they can change my mind about the game.

@scarred_fox Might be some wishful thinking on the PC front there, I'm afraid. Only the first Gears ever came to PC, as I recall.

@scarred_fox Witcher 1 and 2 are two of my all time favourite games. Totally love them. Everyone should play them.

@homelessgamer Not that I know of, though I was super happy when he came on the scene to see my last name printed on an NFL jersey!

@Wintereich They have a prequel (Judgement) but it is still stale, i enjoyed the game for the mechanics, but there was no real plot or backbone that I could sink teeth into and felt stale from the first until the last. A openworld GoW with a broader scope on the world now that would be interesting.

@Chris_Watters Now define:  crotchety, snappish.


Let me try..

Crotchety = prompt to get hits in the crotch.

Snappish = often says Oh SNAP! when excited.

@Chris_Watters@scarred_fox true. I had a lot of fun playing GoW 1 coop with my brother over LAN, it was awesome. Then it was a huge let-down when they announce they never make another PC version.

Funny, after the developers were blowing up such a hype over the PC version and saying how much they loved it, changing from "this port gonna rock!" to "Forget it, it was a stupid idea" - was absurd.

@krishnaV_@masfima1 Yup I third that! (can you third that? is that even a verb? lol)

He should do the news more often! like always.
