You cared enough to respond about a game you don't care about. LOL, self owned.

Yup, typical Microsoft. Overcomplicating things.

Only time I really enjoyed it was in Max Payne 3. It wasn't competitive for me or anything, but it was loads of fun with Max Payne's mechanics. Had some nice game modes. It even included bullet time in a nice way.

I was really having dozens of hours of fun with it. Until one day I discovered that grinding top tier players got access to one hit kill pistols and one hit kill shotguns, that ruined it for me and so I uninstalled it.

yea that is the only one I really tried and had a OK time with but I wouldn't call MP3 a cover shooter (even though it has a cover mechanic)

didn't put a ton of time into it though

@R4gn4r0k: my favorite third person shooter multiplayer is by far The Last of Us. No other game is as tactical or team based.

Surprised this game still has fans judging from the cold online reception.

Yeah, games like this and third person pubg just piss me off because it's relegated to camping behind walls.

It's on of MS biggest franchises, and Days Gone is a NEW IP. For your sake it had better be those things you're hyping it to be (even though we'll never know the true sales #)

And lol at Xbox servers having trouble with this...isn't that where you xbox fans claim to be doing all your gaming next gen, in the clouds thru MS "servers"?

Having trouble with one game in beta doesn't make that sound too promising.

It is on Steam so if you count those sales it might. I know though more people will play Gears 5 because of Gamepass than DG.

It is because a lot of people are using gamepass to try Gears 5 out.

@xhawk27: Gamepass is exactly why it won't outsell it.

Didn't get to sign up for Gears 5 beta on PC, so I don't have a code to test it out but then again, I played all the Gears series anyways, so I know what to expect from a Gears game what & how it plays already.

For those who are gonna play the Beta, hope you all enjoy it :)

Not exactly the same thing, actually far from it, but more realistic that what you previously stated.

Well, they are good enough for Sony to move their platform to it. Self owned!

BTW. most games in beta have issues. That's why it is a beta. WTF is wrong with you people. They purposely stress the servers. Even Blizzard does this. Please learn technology before speaking please.

I'm not self owned fool ? I'm not going to be using it!

You just owned yourself for assuming something stupid.

Like I said, if xbox fans are going to be depending on MS servers to play all their games like you've been hyping, that doesn't look too promising.

Tried getting into a match with no luck. And it's not because the servers are getting slammed. There are fewer than 9K people watching on Twitch right now. There are more people watching Dead by Daylight and Hearthstone...

Come on man. That has nothing to do with having a beta test. Those games were just shit. Gears may be shit also, but we will soon find out.

Red Dead online also had issues on release. Granted they did it really weird but it still had issues.

I will play gears 5 on my laptop when it comes out using my $1/month gamepass sub.

Hopefully I don’t feel like I wasted that $1...

I was looking forward to this then for some reason, the aiming was inverted and I couldn't work out how to change this. No Gears of War prior to this had this bs.
