A close resource to Microsoft sais that the game will include a digital copy of the first part of the saga, Gears of War, launched in 2006.
If it's true, then that's pretty awesome. I played the original a while back and have sold it since then, but this would definitely be a nice bonus.
The original Gears of War was the reason i brought the Xbox360. Its multiplayer took skills unlike the noob freindly gears 2 & 3. Gears of War 4 has to be like Gears 1.
If it's true, Judgement will be way better than Gears of War 2 and specially 3:).
Is it because Gears 1 was better than the other 2? I personally like Gears 2 myself, but I can understand why a lot of people would like the first one more.
I always thought 2 was the worst of the trilogy.
Gears 2 was fucking laggy eapecialy if u live outside US. The game was very noob freindly. People who first got into Gears with Gears 2 or 3 before playing Gears 1, youd get ur ass whooped i the original Gears. The original Gears of War took skills. The wallbouncing, shotguning and the sniper all took skills that a noob would cry there heart out. Gears 2 & 3 soften up so noobs can get more of a chance.
How does the inclusion of the first game have any effect on Judgement's quality?
I have 2 Triple A Microsoft exclusives to look forward to this year, so far.
There's two exclusives from Microsoft this year?! News to me.
well that's lame from MS and gears 1 is not even exclusive
Gears 1 IS a microsoft exclusive, he didn't say Xbox 360 exclusive
That's a pretty cool extra
I've never played the original so this'll be a perfect extra
I already have Gears 1 but this is good incentive to buy
Awesome! Even though I already own it it's a nice addition.
That's right, there is plenty of room left on the disk for it because of GOW:J's lack of content.
It's a digital copy...
@Excalibur Think before you speak.
Wow buddy... you just cant help yourself XD
Humor is truly lost on the internet, I was being sarcastic....
Oh its sarcasm now? I really just thought you were trolling every Gears article that gets posted here... Oh wait -_-
@ Pekolie Before you run your mouth why don’t you check my achievement list. If you did you would see that I have played and completed all of the Gears games on insane. Doing a stare and compare of mine and your achievements I see Gears 1 Me 58% complete, you Not Played Gears 1 (PC) Me 60% complete, you not played. Gears 2 Me 100% complete, you 59% complete. Gears 3 Me 100% complete, you 95% complete. I, my friend am not trolling Gears. I on the other hand am VERY disappointed with Epic and the direction they are taking the franchise.
Personally I thought the first was most "pure". I didn't really care for the introduction of sticky grenades, a bunch of super weapon pickups, etc (beam, mortar) and especially the sawed off. I really enjoyed 2/3 for campaign and coop though and both had some enjoyable multiplayer but just not quite the same (but atleast they removed active sniper downing... best thing they ever did). I'm hopeful Judgement will be good and want to see where they take it with Baird (smart ass, sarcastic commentary and all). He was always the type that just seemed he could never keep a rank when promoted to me so Judgement sounds perfect for the name.
lol, Microsoft are now desperately trying to help this game sell. First they give away 1600 Microsoft points to those who pre-order it and now they're given Gears 1 away with it too? There's no hype for this game at all and the pre-orders (in the US) are pathetic. It's because this game is releasing too soon after 3, changed things nobody wanted changed, different developer and it's just that same exact experience, there's nothing new at all. Also, who want's to play as Baird? He's a dick. Gears 1 & 2 were so awesome, 3 sucked and Judgment looks awful.
Gears 2? Awesome? Ok... Clearly you didn't even notice the 6 major title updates which finally ATTEMPTED to make the game playable. Worst sequel this gen. By far. My biggest disappointment, AND I bought into the hype and bought the LE. :'(
I agree. 2 is what killed the series for me. gears 1 was one of my favorite games of all time. Then 2 came out and the MP was damn near unplayable. Never got back into the series.
Couldn't agree more
Wow, your second paragraph is SO damn true. I couldn't really figure out why interest in this game was so low at first. lol Not one person I know is even remotely excited to play as Baird. And I know a lot of hardcore Gears fans. The game should've been set during the Pendulum Wars. Not some back story or whatever for some crappy character that nobody cares about.
OMG that's a great gift. Judgment is the precuel of Gears of War so it coincides.
I played gears1 like a freak Then I played 2 and haven't play 1 2 or 3 since Gears 2 I just did not like it at all
I do think gears 2 graphics were cartoonier. But i think gears 3 graphics were improved but the damn environments were so drab. Gears 1 at least had buildings.
All the gears were good but i didnt like the story change in part 3. The locusts went from a lab experiment going haywire to being an ancient civilization. And somewheres in gears 2 they were talking about "the female" subject displaying telekinetic abilities then somewheres else they mentioned marcus' mom disappearing and last being seen near a dark hollow. So all this time youre thinking the cog gvmt made the locust and marcus' mom is the queen and adam fenix is some mad scientist. The queen also knew marcus' name. Getting off track. Gears 1 multiplayer was plagued with disconnects, bad host advantage, shotty, and damn chainsaws! Gears 2 was a better playing game but did have a bad lag problem for a while, but i did play alot of guardian, annex and king of the hill. Also loved river jacinto and blood drive. Gears 3 is the best playing gears, but after playing all the call of duties, battlefield 3, medal of honor 1, uncharted 2 (not 3), and killzone 2&3 multiplayers,crysis 2,.......its hard to go back to gears after playing those. I think gears is best left as a campaign or co op campain in my humble opinion.
Say what you say but The Gears franchise has been one of the few gems this gen. Look at the influence horde had on every game since its inception...*coughs*...zombies , firefight, etc...yea Gears made Devs do that. I know Gears didn't invent it but the damn sure got the formula right with it. With that said, I can't wait for Judgement.
I've been playing the Gears of War franchise from Day one, and say to those of who are yet to experience the franchise, this is a brilliant deal. However, it unfortunately acts as a further reminder that "Judgement" is targeted at an audience seperate from the "Gears" Community, and instead, those of who have yet to experience it.
I hope this revives Gears 1 online!!! 2 was so trash online and 3 was to noob friendly
