What the Gears of War Remake Must Do To Excite Us

IGN: "We try to find humor in what is otherwise a downer of a week: the Astro A40 Xbox One gaming headset isn't good, Silent Hills is canceled and Konami doesn't look long for this world, Black Ops 3 fails to excite us, Batman: Arkham Knight's DLC Season Pass is laughably expensive, and more. On the bright side, it looks like we're getting a Gears of War 1 remake/update, Halo 5: Guardians may finally let us play with Master Chief's best Spartan-II buddies, State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition and a Battletoads-infused Shovel Knight are out for Xbox One, and more!"

Remake or remaster?
Just better graphics and sound for the remake.

Vahlok1324d ago

I think they are gonna remake first Gears by using Unreal 4 and remastered other Gears of War games . Just like Halo MCC.

XboxDD1324d ago

Eh, I wish they'd remake every game.

thekhurg1324d ago

Why is this on the PS3/PS4 channel?

Vahlok1324d ago

XboxDD i wish same :) But if they remake 3 ( or 4 ) of them, game price would be higher then 60$.

MilkMan1324d ago

Did they same remake?
Man I am so done right now!

I wish it was a remake! But no, just a remaster. Only thing being remade is the cinematics.

Wikkid6661324d ago

LOL! nothing is confirmed

micx1324d ago (Edited 1324d ago )

We are yet to see what's going to be announced.

EvilWay1324d ago

And you know his how? I have a reliable source that's says they are tweaking some gameplay aspects and adding game modes (which is a mistake).

Change some problems the game has and make it smoothe : movement a bit smoother, glitches and active sniper downs need tweaks but adding game modes is a bad move

Multiplatguy1324d ago

@ To everyone saying nothing has been announced yet.. I am just going by what the rumour said was happening.

And remakes rarely happen in gaming. More often than not; it's remasters. There is no reason to believe this is a remake rather than remaster.

rainslacker1323d ago

What exactly would they remake? Unreal 4 and Unreal 3 aren't so drastically different that the game would be any different than a remaster, and I honestly don't think that gaming graphics and styles have changed drastically enough since it first released to make a full remake necessary.

Why? There is nothing wrong with a remake.

iliimaster1324d ago

I thought the multiplayer was atrocious in Gears 1 and 2. Gears of War 3 was the only one that was actually somewhat balanced.

Gears 1 and 2 were just shotgun gibfests all day everyday. The third one is where people actually used different weapons and they could actually stand a chance against a person just running in with a shotgun like a little baby. Shotgun abuse was much less of a problem in the 3rd game and it was all the better for it. The hammerburst was ACTUALLY effective in Gears of War 3 and the lancer was effective too. Gears of War 3 is easily the most balanced of the trilogy. The first one is absolutely the worst in terms of multiplayer.

Gears 3 was actually balanced...
Retro Lancer?
Sawed Off Shotgun took 4 months to get nerfed.
Hammerburst got a buff from GoW2.

The Lancer was always effective in GoW... If you didn't suck at aiming that is.

shloobmm31324d ago

It just simply needs to come out. People will get excited.

Convas1324d ago

Yup! Gears of War 3 was my first Gears game. So getting to play Gears of War in 1080p glory with treatment akin to Halo 2 Anniversary is VERY exciting to me.

micx1324d ago

They will use it as an introduction to Gears of War 4 much like they did with The Master Chief Collection and Halo 5.
