One of these games where a board of gamedesigners and ceo's meet with shareholders and ask themself: what can we create ... to give our biggest fans of gears of war ... a game they want to play.

And then somebody yells: a mobile game we can stuff with microtransactions and such!

Lol they are already making Gears 5 and a tactical game, they also want to get in on the mobile train. Can’t blame them. Be thankful they aren’t Blizzard-Activision and making it a priority of that IP.

Thank you. I will check it out because it’s Gears, but I am sure I will delete it the same day.

Same thing with me. I just couldn’t get into mobile games and every game sits there for maximum 2 days and gets deleted

They’re releasing Gears 5 so they’re immune to criticism on this stuff. Doesn’t really matter. Play if you like. Skip if you like. 🤷‍♂️

I don't think that was the agenda of that meeting to be honest. The CEOs met and thought "how could we attract a child audience to our 18+ franchise like COD does and make them future gears players. Lets make a cute mobile game"

Who honestly buys that shit?
Those kind of parents who try to do their kids a favor, get advice from an "expert" at the store, look the back cover and think how "cute" or "cool" everything looks and the description reads. "Here son, I know you wanted F1 World Grand Prix II, but I bought you GT64 instead. It's also a racing game!" "Yeah, thanks... dad."

Cool, combining 2 completely dead things into 1 doa thing.

Edit- I guess I should clarify a bit. POP and POP collectors are the lamest shit on the planet. I wouldn't play this game just because of the association.

Gears is well past it's prime, but I'd play Gears 5 for some dumb fun.

It's pretty good fun, there is a neogaf clan if you want company.

The sniper unit seems a bit overpowered, but enjoying the game so far. It's very pay to win, but the matchmaking does a good job of playing you against folks with equal stats.

I had quite a bit of fun with Clash Royale until I had the paywall barrier. I'll definitely check this out until I hit the pay wall again.

There's a chance that this game will make a ton of money if it takes off like Clash Royale did.

I've literally lost to like 29/30 female avatar players. The one win had a guys gamertag so it was probably a dude afterall.
