Now i'm talking about positive Xbox news threads silly (made you look lol)

So i learned yesterday that MS is releasing a first party game day one on the SeX in, Gears Tactics now i already know the type of damage control coming from the cows, but try and come up with something new.

I must say its about damn time MS, now i'm no Gears fan as stated by me plenty of times before, but being its a turned based strategy game, i might just look into it.

Also day 1 for Xbox gamepass, but those on it already knew that.

Anyone else interested in it?

I’m definitely looking forward to this game. Big fan of the Gears of War games and it sounds like this one turned out to be very good. Like turned based strategy games and I think that it makes for an interesting take on the franchise.

I think Gears Tactics looks like good fun. I watched a few user reviews on Youtube and there were a lot of positive remarks about it. It's a nice addition to the launch lineup for sure.

OT: Gears Tactics is a solid nice 1st-party for XSX and if you are a fan of XCOM, you can't go wrong with Gears Tactics. I heard Gears Tactics has no MP modes, so that's something to keep in mind but the demands for SP in various games is the reason why no MP.

But your opinion doesn't count because you like everything, does that sound like a familiar poster to you lol.

I'm no Gears fan and hated the TPS games, however a turned based game i can get into as i'm and old school RPG fan, so i will wait until i see how the controls work out for it.

@i_p_daily: Sadly yeah, I like everything and am too happy go lucky so my irrelevant opinion just falls on deaf ears. Well not all are deaf ears, for some my opinions keep them up at night and haunt their every dream. 😅

Yeah it definitely could be a good way for non-TPS fans into the franchise.

Gears Tactics was pretty fun, though it did get repetitive so I never finished it.

the boss fights are great

That's actually interesting. Do moderators here actually have shifts? Does that mean you're paid or compensated in some way? I always thought that this was a volunteer "for the love of the forum" kind of arrangement.

No not really as this is a turned based combat game, so i guess it does appeal to Gears fans in a sense, however i see turned based fans such as myself being more interested in it as its a much SLOWER based game build around strategy not fast paced pew, pew action.

I'd say MS was keeping it for the SeX release knowing they were a bit light on when it came to first party games.

This game should have been on Xbox consoles from the jump. It was lame to strategically wait until the XSX launch when Xbox gamers really could have used the content this year.

RTS.. no thanks. Very few RTS games are fun to me (which has always surprised me since I usually like things like that, and I have tried to force myself to play many of them). Although I have played a couple over the years that were pretty good. That said, it's awesome for those that do like those kind of games, but I'll likely sit this one out.

This game is not a real time strategy. Its the opposite.

Not really. One thing I_P doesn't know is that we have a very complex tunnel system. Leaving the basement is not a requirement at all in 2020.

@i_p_daily: I'm just the opposite, I really like Gears (at least 1-3, havent played any of the newer ones) but I'm not a fan of turn based strategy at all. But I'm guessing hardcore Gears fans will buy it regardless.

I'm playing it on PC right now. It's an awesome game, and I'm not even a fan of Xcom type turn based games.

It looks gorgeous and will do so on Xbox One X as well.

The Gears mechanics transalte over to turn based tactics really well, but it will help if you are a gears fan (things like sliding into cover, throwing grenades and using melee is all used to the same effect)

I'd imagine there's no MP because its turn based, and it would take a LONG time between turns for each player, unless there was a time limit between moves which people would hate anyway, so not really suited to MP.

PS...I bet you thought this thread was about something else when you read the title on the main page, just like everyone else did LOL.

I played a tiny bit of it when I had GamePass on PC. It was alright. Not a big Gears fan though. TC if you like those kind of games you should check out XCOM. It's the gold standard for these types of games.

I actually have one of those games on the 360, the one where the cover is made up of little skull/aliens that makes a big picture of an alien, i just never got around to playing it.

Can't be because you hear your own voice when you speak lol.

Consoles have always been better than e-mail machines and always will be.
