I’m having a ton of fun with multiplayer and it’s really scratching that itch I haven’t had since Titanfall 2. I’m probably going to skip Call of Duty next week because of it. The Coalition really put together a sweet package and with The Outer Worlds next week Game Pass has a hit another level of goodness. Now back to Gears 5 multiplayer.....

It is absolutely insane to me that there still isn't a shoulder swap in this game..

I still don't even know really what we can do with scrap or if we earn iron in game? Too much stuff is locked behind iron/ mtx. Locking executions behind mtx is lame AF.

Batista is a really good looking character, from the inside.

One of my biggest pet peeves that this game is highly guilty of is all the downtime / menus you have to look at between rounds/ games. Every wave of horde there are all these stat screens and scoreboards. Just make those screens an opt-in by pressing a button and let us just keep getting into the fighting. I hate the after action reports that just slowly reveal your stats one by one after a game. If I want to look at it let me decide to, if not, lets just move it along already. Seems a bit trivial I guess but it just feels so overboard in this game especially...

I excess menu seems to be a small issue. I think the main issue is the active player base or lack of it. Tried a few matches, Takes a long time to match up, & I get lobbies with 2v1....in the new flag mode.

The gameplay is subjective, it is fun & different, with more emphasis on cover & movement than the most shooters, but I can't see myself playing for long. But then again I don't generally play PvP shooters except for BR.

Anyway, I finished the campaign on Intermediate diff. First time playing using keyboard & mouse. Game isn't too tough on this mode except for the one boss (act 2). The mouse aim does help significantly in aiming, I am popping headshots all over the place. The cover system feels clucky as Gears 1 for me but I guess this is part of gears. Tomb Raider, even Uncharted cover system feels less clucky for me.

I am surprised steam shows 20 hours. Guess time flies when you are having fun. I rated the campaign 8.5/10. I think if Gears can expand the open world & RPG part (Similar to Jack upgrade, but for the char armor as well, as least in the campaign), it can be easily 10/10. They can take a page from the borderlands in open (Semi) world design. Very little action took place in the open terrain, but there are many well-designed points of interest in a map to enhance the experience & catered to people who like explorations.
