    Holy shit arcade is gonna be so fun. I feel like this gears is definitely gonna be good for both new and good players. I usually just grinded the gears ranked mode to get good at gears and end up raging but this gears is gonna be great arcade mode sounds like my cup of tea and im looking forward to escape and horde.

    What i disliked about Gears of war 4 is there is only 5v5 mode (i play since Gears of War 2) and now i only play in hord or Koth (and sometimes social if i don't have lots of time) and when i played the Gears 5 beta the problem were the same as in Gears 4, if one of your allies is absent (for objective mode like KOTH or escalation) or is a newbie (mostly for TDM or Dodgeball) you will feel this absence or the way some people don't care about the ring, and in TDM it's worse, when 2-3 ppl of your team have 0-7 or 0-11 k/d and suck all the life of the team and you, who finish with like 15-2 something like that and just had like 2 or 3 respawn for yourself... because the "casual" players have used all the life... it's really annoying for the veterans player and at the end of the match you lost the game but you are MVP anyway in a team who lost 2-0, and that's why i would appreciate if they bring back FFA or Wingman mode wich was awesome and the games was more intense

    I disagree with you dude, great video but in gore and violence, gears of war 3 nailed it, the new "blood" of the gears of war 4 and 5 seems like Ketchup

    Honestly, just because the new arcade mode doesn’t promote traditional Gears play style, doesn’t mean the rest of the game will suck. This has been the smoothest/optimized Gears I ever played. Most of those weapons your complaining about have been cut/changed due to balance reasons. I’m a hardcore veteran and can say with confidence this game has the potential to be the most successful Gears! If TC includes Dodgeball, Guardians, and Wingman I will be super excited. Everything in Gears 5 is an absolute improvement from GOW4.

    The Coalition has slowly been killing off the franchise by making it more welcoming to new players (noob friendly). Gears is such a unique game and nothing really rivals it. Instead of them playing to the strengths that the game brings, they are changing the focus to assault rifles and slow gameplay (hiding & camping). What makes gears MP great is the learning curve. By nature, it is a very hard game to get good at however, the payoff for practicing is very worth the effort. I can't think of any other developer who has tried to simplify their game more to the point that it no longer feels like it originally did.
    I mean this in the nicest way but you're gameplay footage clearly shows that you only play hoard and campaign. In all honesty, Arcade mode should not be any representation of the core gears MP experience. New players who will spend hours playing arcade, spawning in with rifles and sitting back holding an angle all game are going to have a VERY salty experience should they decide to jump into any other mode. Having a social mode is swell and all but I feel the entire game, what made gears so great, is going to be lost to dumbing down the game.
    Wanna leave some notes about how the game has attempted to make the game more noob friendly
    1. The elephant in the room, the overpowering red screen. It's too much, but players didn't know when they were damaged? Are you serious?
    2. Here's a thought... let's add a second kill feed? Again, new players didn't know when the got a kill so they added another killfeed right in the middle of the screen?
    3. Rifle Buff, Gnasher Nerf. Inexperienced players have a sour time because the game is gnasher focused. Make rifles more prominent.
    4. The new maps are designed to be rifle focused. There is NOTHING fun about hiding behind cover and spending the entire match lancering etc.
    I mean, I could honestly go on all day... I really hope somebody takes the time to read this. Coming from someone who has been a die-hard fan of the franchise since 2006, I'm VERY sad to see a game I once loved fade into irrelevance.
    Have a good day y'all

    • eM97

      What are you crying about? Just ducking play escalation!!!’ There is no aim assist. And the movement is faster. Repawns are limited for its more focused on 1v1’s.
      There’s nothing casual about that mode... also there’s not as much sitting back with rifles.... quit crying and play that mode. Everyone in gow 4 said the same thing because they hated the core experience even tho on paper the competitive experience and weapon tuning was the best we have seen in gears to date.... ignorant fuck tards

    Best Gears yet, but nothing solid on the campaign. You really going to believe that narrative? Xbox fans will believe and say anything. One month away and all they show is multiplayer. Maybe that's all that matters to some.

    The new gnasher is inconsistent, the lancer is a freakin' nuke, and the beta play was smoother in 16 than this tech test.

  • Andre k

    If you REALLY felt the visuals and graphics were so great why have you emphasize d on that 4 times before half of the video was over? To me after playing the tech test gears deff needs to upgrade the multiplayer graphics. Gow4 graphics were smoother. Also the vocals of the characters were edited from gow4 to an extent and made less enthusiastic...sorta bland. It was a fun game to me but something is missing most people agree with me.

    Some bugs here and there. Hope you fix. Omen takes out visibility, can't even defend my self, the sides are just too red.The rest is ok. Didn't know how to use the mortar rifle. Saw people aiming at the ground. I think this weapon works from the top where you can mark better. Head shots with other guns doesn't bother me at all. Knife is ok. Gnasher: we just have to get use to it. 2 hits 99% or 97% still not good. Sound of guns and sight changes are ok. Could have change gnasher and other weapons executions or add others with the same weapon similar to the snub but with new executions. Talon is nice but goes back to much for me. The bugs I've found are players that keep running like when the match enters in a lagg that all players go running on the screen, well I saw them doing this on the match and no one else saw it on my team, I died and when came back from the count, the player was still there running against a corner but he actually was playing but I couldn't see him playing only the lagged clon. The kill cam gets stucked too, maybe it's intended to be like this, I mean the scene doesn't continue till it stops, instead the players get stucked too after it shows your death. Other times doesn't even show the kill cam and others show the red dead omen. I saw other bugs but just can't remember. You guys brought back from judgement falling from places but in a short way (don't know what to say about that, I guess doesn't affect playability). Chainsaw and execution button change: what's the point? I can handle it but chainsaw with RB to then press b, I guess increases difficulty ok but I don't fell the RB for this, maybe LB perhaps, maybe you'll give us personalized control options like before.

    I love this gears and the way it looks but it’s not perfect I only hate the way they put aim assist in the game I really hate that I don’t even what to pick up a sniper anymore. I don’t like how people just lancer in king of the hill it just makes the game mode boring and just a waste of time I remember on gears 3 where it was always a rush to get to the hill and not worry about the lancer shooting you down and I play king of the hill so that doesn’t happen because I will lancer in TDM matches and other game modes but I mostly play king of the hill so I can just have rush. The first part of the gears tech test was amazing because in a king match everyone was using the gnasher and no one was using the lancer but now when it came out this week for the second time I don’t even want to play because they changed the gnasher but that was ok. The reason I don’t want to play is because of how people are using the gnasher in a king of hill match which makes me personally feel bored and not want to play anymore.

    I just wish there were some kind of challenge, like 1000 kills with Lancer and ill get a skin that is only thru challenge or 1500 kills with the sniper, that way ill will be pressure to use different weapons to complete the challenge and keep playing even more after finishing the game.

    I'm a gears ver and while the game does play smooth and graphics look great, i really feel like they slowed down the wallbouncing,the damage omen is the worst,less shots for the gnasher why? Everything feels less agressive, killcam doesn't let you teabag,in arcade the enforcer is op and lancer and retro pop heads like wtf,gears have always been a very aggresive multiplayer and with a aggresive comunity wouldn't want that to go away althought it seems it might

    First off loved to hear about you and your friends enjoying the horde mode so much! I myself are more of a versus and campaign guy myself but its refreshing to hear! I always play the gears campaigns with my little brother and it has been a bonding experience to have with him so as always really excited for the campaign! The shooting feels so nice and addicting :)

    I loved the tech test and cant wait for the next test and of course the full game. Tbh I dont play PvP in gears so I really suck at it. But the Arcade mode was fun. It did feel more fluid I guess is how to word that. Just felt smoother to play. Great video Zalker

    I played it on Saturday and Sunday mostly because Friday ques were just crazy like 3-6 hour waits. After Friday i didn't have any issues joining and playing at any time. Thou i'm not a fan of the Gears style of play... Drives me a little mad lol.. I did play arcade mode and got like lvl 30 or something and thou i don't like the game play style i did enjoy the game a lot.. There were a lot of rage moments but the game ran Crispy Smooth.. and i never once had lag issues, as well as everything looking really good.. Really looking forward to the campaign and seeing the other modes..

    Great video mate.. As always.

    good to hear you are so excited as someone converted to being a lover of Gears I was too the Tech Test like for many did not start out smooth but it imporved over the weekend substantially and I think I enjoyed it because as many I am not a good at Gears Versus but the game felt balanced even in the matchmaking I did not feel overpowered and the kill cam gave me a chance to learn where I messed up!

    snarfsnarf85 snarf 4 months ago +2

    As someone who has played through every gears game, the movement in this one feels so wrong. The aiming feels very sluggish even on max sensitivity, the corner reaction shots favor people with trash ping, and taking cover/wall running was terrible. This was noticed almost immediately during the garbage training section dodging Dave's laser targeting beam. If this isn't fixed for launch, long time gears fand will drop this game really quick. Scrubs like you might not mind and that's dandy, but this tech test made me lose a lot of hype for this game. Judging by other gears related content, this franchise is toast, which sucks. Went back to gears 4, and the movement and framerates were so much better, even playing against tons of Mexican kids. Not a good sign. Ps, graphics on my base xbox on a 4k screen...looked BAAAAAD.
