For a much anticipated Xbox game the hype is damn low for this game on this board. Is interest for the game really that low among the users? Not even a hype thread or a system war crap post. God of War from last year still have more traction in threads compared to this game, heck even Niche Fire Emblem got some good exposure.

RIP Gears.

Lemmings too scared to make a hype thread probably

Fire emblem got a 9 and met hype and everyone was happy

I was trying to hype Links Awakening which is a month out so no real excuse for them not to hype gears

I did made a hype thread for Gears of War 4 almost 3 years ago. But in another way, I did get that game for free with the purchase of my GTX 1070 at the time and after playing Gears 4, it was disappointing! I expected so much more coming from Gears 4 and now for Gears 5, I see little hype, just looks more the same and nothing innovating this time around but God of War 4 at least went to a new direction but you get what I mean. I'll still play Gears 5 with Game Pass but I'm not expecting radical new stuff though.

Also, Gears 5 doesn't release till September 5, way too early for any hype when August is still early and no closer to September 2019 anyways. And no, I'm not making Gears 5 hype thread unless you can give me a reason why sure, I'll do a Gears 5 hype thread since I'll still play the game after all.

Well I’m very hyped for the game myself. 🤷‍♂️

Played the tech test and the game plays, looks, and sounds great. I will be picking up the Ultimate Edition day one.

Three Gears and Judgement were enough for me. 4 was lame, and nothing about 5 makes me want to come back to this franchise.

On a serious note, now that Gears is out of the way its time to shelve if for a few years and Black Tusk (my bad the Coalition) can get back to making whatever this was going to be

And for once, I do agree with Daily. Hey @sakaixx, I think your the better person to make Gears 5 hype thread since you are allover this Gears 5, you can do it and I'll gladly help you out making it too. I can fetch you some images, gifs, and provide OP details as well and don't worry, my service is free (well for anyone who needs my help really) so what do you got to lose?

Edit: I recommend releasing Gears 5 hype thread September 1st before the reviews goes live and I'm still up for Gears 5 hype thread but you need to convince me why though.

Actually been watching gears 5 beta for a while and thought its really cool, but surprised by lack of hype from anyone everywhere in forums I frequented.

Do one please @davillain-, I am not really good at hyping stuff for thread. Highly interested in following the news of this game. Even on gears subreddit there is not much talk other than showing ink. not many posting new beta footage or if any talk, its about rage on the new division like modes.

@i_p_daily - Xbox is dead sorry. PC exist.

All jest aside, I'm schedule for Control hype thread cause I'm more hype for that game as it is and can't believe that game is closer to Gears 5 release. I'm on a tight schedule but hey, I'll think about it on Gears 5 hype thread.

The game is a bit over a month. The hype should be within scope a week from launch.

Safely tucked away, because of the shitfest that was 4. And this looks worse.

Gears of war is terrible series and its the one that completely ruined TPS genre. i wish someone make TPS like Max payne and not another gears clone.

Mediocre cover based shooter. waste of time.

I tried Gears 4 on Gamepass and wasn't compelled to put more than a few hours into it. Gears 5 is less exciting to me than that.

I understand why there's no hype around it ms themselves haven't exactly shown anything to be hyped about outside the tech test. The campaign is still unknown and is a worry.

Played gears 4 recently with game pass on pc and while it wasn’t terrible, it wasn’t exactly anything that got me hyped for a sequel...

I think it's part of their gamepass? So I guess I will be able to play it...

I dunno. The woman doing the whole cringy face thing didn't exactly sell me on the game.

It's coming to Game Pass and from this point on, any MS games will be on Game Pass meaning you'll be able to play just about any MS games on PC :)

I'm personally looking forward to it. Is it my favorite series of all time? Not by a long shot. But I enjoy it and look forward to playing. Fanboys and hype threads are really fucking stupid.

campaign wise the first three were great but gears 4 was just bad. the trailer for 5 suggests more of the same.

the story arc was closed at the end of 3 so the series should've really been retired at that point. but regardless if gears 4 was in the hands of epic i think it would've turned out very differently (i.e. better). see bungie / halo 4 and crytek / far cry 2 for similar examples of franchises changing hands and going down hill

It's part of the fun Pedro. But for a content creator such as myself, I don't expect for you to understand that.

Nice. I grabbed Game Pass for PC for the first month for a buck, which allowed me to play Metro Exodus. With Gears 5 coming up, i'll definitely keep paying.

Just a friendly reminder on this. You can also use Game Pass to play Outer Worlds when it releases on Windows 10, the same day for Epic store if you are interested.

The lems are playing it safe after Crackdown 3. They're waiting eagerly in the darkness for a light to finally shine upon them. The game drought has made them into scavengers, enjoying what little scraps they can find. Within them they hold a small, faint hope; an ember that yearns to blaze once more. If Gears 5 flops, I think we should all pitch in to help ensure lems can roam free in a conservation facility. It would be a shame to see them go extinct.

Yep, I saw that as well. Super-hyped for that game. Hopefully we get more New Vegas style goodness.

Suffers from "more of the same syndrome", we are very late into this gen and it's marketing a female protagonist to broz.

Some of the marketing, particularly at the E3 confrence where it got all arty-farty with "le emotion" was just poor.

She is supposed to become the new locust Queen after her mother. That was what the whole Kait trailer was about.

AND on Xbox, and its believed to be that around 40 million of them are in the wild, but dead you say.

Again thanks for contradicting yourself and trying to get dav to do a hype thread when you're the one who created this thread to throw shade at lems, what a backfire on your part.

So put up a Gears hype thread or STFU lol.
