The AI companion, the black dude. He keeps lagging behind. He's always too far to revive me. Keep getting himself killed.
There was one fight I revived him around 20 times. He kept running into the open and just standing there. When he isn’t doing that he is normally standing around in the area before where the fight is doing nothing.

This check point bug is really bad. Been hit by it 4 times today. They need to fix it asap

Lots of things needs patching:

- Audio bug
- broken checkpoints
- co-op campaign crashes

Anyone want to run the co-op campaign? I'm playing on PC, but been doing cross play with my Pops, he's not gonna be able to play for a minute. Around Act 2 towards the end.

I didn't like Gears 4 mp but I'm enjoying this one and doing pretty good. Enjoy bro.
Its faster paced and im having fun (despite being put on losing teams...)

My biggest gripe with 4 was that felt too samey to 3. This feels more fluid and definitely has an emphasis on speed. Like of you combined the speed and movement of judgement but with the gunplay of gears 2/3/4.

Its very solid and a very pleasant improvement (when the servers work, that is.)

Its also nice that we spawn with flashbangs instead of smoke grenades.

I just did a few sections where my AI is no where near the fight. Then when I beat the fight by myself and get to the next door he magically teleports in to help me open it.

And all they have been talking about is “server-side patch” yeah sure....

On XBOX you hold down the reload button instead of just tapping it. Did you try that?

Biggest improvement is weapon balance. Gears 4 was a trash shotgun fest and I hated using same weapon bcus it was OP and everyone used it bcus of its advantage.

Slower and not faster
In comparison for me its felt faster. Asylum is pretty compact and straight into the action for a mode like domination for example. And the TTK for many weapons have improved.

Yeah it is. I kept spraying the floor with bullets - creating a circle of graves for the swarm.
I forgot the name of it but that feature was brought over to the riftworm mp/horde level. It was pretty amusing killing enemies by breaking the ice beneath and letting them freeze if they werent smart enough to run out of the water

I still feel like the gnasher is too powerful, especially at range.

Just finished, curious to see how they go forward with that choice ending. You guys may be right, I could see them using player choice as a vote.

I killed JD; just seems like Gears tradition to shit on poor old Marcus. Best Friend dies, dad turns to ash in his hands, wife dies prematurely and now JD. Jesus, Coalition...

Really liked the game, it exceeded my expectations. Hats off to The Coalition.

Ive been playing a lot of multiplayer and I gotta give coalition credit for one very important thing, something that has been an issue since gears 1:

They finally fixed preferred characters. (IE: when you enter a match half-way through you’ll start as your selected character. In all of the older games your selected character was often replaced by a random character with your selection “playable next match” if you you joined mid-game.)

I hated all the previous Gears online modes. Just couldn’t play them at all, but I feel like the addition of Arcade Vs really helps weed out the tryhards and makes it a more enjoyable experience for the more casual player.

I’m sure if I ever attempted to go into ranked all that goodwill would be gone.

Weird, it only happened once for me. He's usually pretty fast with healing me. But yeah, I have revived him quite a few times.

I have to say that I’ve never been so angry at a game and pleased at the same time.

When the game is working it is fun, the server stuff and us wasting 10 mins on reconnecting and launching the game partway through campaign. Not so fun.

Just finished Act 1. That was a pretty solid Act if you ask me.
I wished they reduced the components needed for upgrading Jack and locked the components behind small puzzles or something. I guess it doesnt really fit the game but right now it feels a bit off with these things laying around everywhere.
But having a lot of fun and thats most important
 
Encountered a few bugs yesterday in campaign, the game gets glitchy as fuck when the servers are acting up, no idea why they would have single player story need a network connection. If the servers are hiccuping enemies will teleport, set piece enemies will often not appear, PC can teleport, doors won't open and so on.
Only happened twice yesterday but it was REALLY annoying

Yeah they addressed all that and working on it. The ping in PvP is ridiculous

Campaign keeps disconnecting my two friends and checkpoints freezes and crashes the game

This constant networking syncing for single player is retarded. I’m tired of the game freezing and losing progress. I found an option that allows me to turn off networking so I am going to leave XBL off.

Did not expect that killing a character choice. Killed JD. I didn't expect them to actually kill him. I figured she would just drag em away.

the more I think of the ending death of either JD or Del the more i hate it. Seems like such a shitty way to kill off a main character. Just completely out of nowhere with no buildup.

I wonder if they will do something with the death and make either one a swarm general you have to fight in gears 6

Despite that and a mouth full of boom, amazing game! So much better than 4
