And by "refreshing" they mean making it more like cod which is the exact opposite of refreshing. I honestly don't see why they think it needs refreshing, the game itself is a breath of fresh air and there is nothing quite like it on the market, taking stuff out like DBNO is nothing more than a giant middle finger for long term Gears fans.

Aren't you people clamoring for new game play mechanics?

Are you one of the same people that would as easily complain about CoD annual releases being too similar?

Damned if you do and damned if you don't!

Just keep improving on Horde mode. Make it bigger and badder and harder. I want to be able to build more items.
