Crowbcat - Gears 5 lacks weight and intensity

I have to drive the point home for a reason.
There's certainly a reason for it, no doubt.

You aren't going to correct yourself about me having a problem with G5 not being seen as the most impressive game ever, are you?

I'm not upset D DForce , just a little disappointed.

His videos are getting progressively weaker. Don't know if he's getting old or he's just doing everything he can to avoid cancel culture and risk losing monetization.

No, you're clearly upset that people are comparing PS4 exclusives to Gears 5.
Still won't correct yourself eh? Just changing the focus and quadrupling down. It wouldn't kill you to accept you attacked a strawman because you were ... upset?

Gears 5 acquits itself well against the best on the market today. I'm not convinced it's the best but it is very very good. I've said that a few times now. Acknowledging this would be the minimum you could do at this point.

Comparing G5 to anything is fair game, though repeatedly spamming a thread about G5 "weight and intensity" with shots from a tech-demo like epilogue from a PS4 exclusive is .... well ... it's not productive. And it's fair enough to point that out.

Your response thus far has been:

10 PRINT "UPSET"
20 GOTO 10
RUN

I don't need to correct myself. I can show other screenshots that are still impressive, you're just going to make excuses. Still playing Gears and the details in the environment are not even on the same level as the games that I mentioned. lol

Maybe you like arguing in circles but one look at the post history and you should know their true purpose in this thread.
Pretty much this, I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen a more scrutinize game on here over the silliest things.
The game looks beautiful, runs beautiful, and it’s a Xbox/PC exclusive. It’s utterly a recipe for a shit storm. I mean we went from people disagreeing about it being the most beautiful game(I think it’s right up there but RDR2 is the top game visually, but it’s ok if some think Gears 5 is stunning and beautiful because of the FPS) which is entirely subjective as it is to finding things to nitpick and rip at a totally great game for the Xbox.

Maybe good guy Phil will correct this and make sure future Xbox games are more inline with peoples expectations.

MS may reach 60million xbox sold now at least 😁😭




That looks buttery smooth and I love the detail to the snow. The fact that it keeps your old trail is pretty neat. Do you know if this was on Xbox One/X or PC?

I think it's just sort of sad funny, it's the same 3-4 people so you can see them coming from miles away. Thankfully they shit up these low tier threads instead of the OP.
I personally think rdr2 is a better looking game but mostly due to art direction rather than performance or graphical wizardry. I am perfectly fine the devs giving up a mixed bag of misc features to hit 60 fps, it was the best choice. With luck gears6 covers some of the items presented in this video

Gears of War 3 also greatly reduced destructibility and geometric complexity in the environments, but nobody really cared.

Still, I really wish they had kept the cosmetic destruction model from Gears 2. It gave firefights a visual intensity that the ones after that didn't quite have.

Edit: Ahhhh, graphics arguments. Haven't seen one of these in long time.

I took these screenshots on my PC.

I took screenshots of scenes that I think looks good.

This is for anyone accusing me of being a fanboy and not playing the game. I took more, but I just uploaded a few.

Lasting tracks are cool, but this snow scene feels wrong.
Shadows are too prominent in the tracks and makes them look like going in snow that has water underneath, and the shape of tracks look like something you would leave in deep almost freezing point sleet with fresh cold snow on top rather that crisp or powdery snow. Sound effect is for crisp thinner crust of snow not for this deep weirdly acting loose snow.

Gears 5 seems to be the new Crackdown 3 on here 🤔

We're hearing "Look what's wrong with this game!! Look!!" yet plenty of people are enjoying playing it and not analysing it.
LOL no. Gears 5 actually is good. There may be hyperbole about its graphics, but it does look and play good.

Think I'm getting up to speed now! :messenger_grinning_sweat:

I've not got that far yet, but I'm playing on PC and will check when I get there.

I'm also wondering about some of the environmental lighting stuff. Will try and have a play with some settings and see if some of the quirks i.e. some things casting shadows, other not, change.

Have to say that while the character response doesn't seem as "heavy" as in previous Gears titles, G5 feels better on a mouse and keyboard than G4 did, IMO.

There are people "discussing" the graphics with no interest in the game, instead just trying to stir up console wars. Same thing happened with Crackdown 3.
Same thing happens with every first party game, mainly Sony and MS.

But you can cut through the noise and try to have actual discussions. Even if it gets tough when people take it personal on all sides.

Like who? I got accused by even the mods of stirring up console war stuff but I'm kinda laughing because I'm playing the game on PC and even provided my PC benchmark test for the thread. Is it actually that Sony fans are out to get Xbox exclusives or is it more that we aren't allowed to criticize Xbox exclusives without being accused of being biased Sony fans?

Seems like they preserved the classic Gears mechanics :messenger_weary: :messenger_ok:

And people still come to me saying that animations and feeling is totally different from the first gow :ROFLMAO:

You can literally gif some gameplay from gow 1 ultimate, put a coat of bright and gay colors, and you have gears5 multyplayer...

So you don't have a problem with people calling it the best game this gen, but you do have a problem with people who don't think it's the best game this generation?

That seems fair to me lol

I take a break for a couple weeks from GAF to enjoy Gears 5 without spoilers and trolls only to come back to all these shit show gears threads will all the usual pieces of shits trying to derail threads, troll, and ruin others discussion and enjoyment of the game. Fuck off GAF. A couple of you have been cool, but the majority of this place is a God damn joke. No one takes seriously any of the shit TLW, dforce, daniel, demigod, itwasntme, and plenty others, so what's the point of trying to discuss anything when paid shill and astroturfers are allowed to run rampant. Guess what though? All the old main posters for xbox are gone. Banned or fed up. Me too. Back to just enjoying games. Fuck this bullshit. 🖕

oh cmon it was a joke, i will edit if someone is really offended.
I'm not offended :) no need to edit, im just a bit tired of most of the anti gay shit I see around here. We are all humans like it or not, and sexuality is not a choice I think.
