Here is the latest list of fixes/tweaks on the upcoming third title update that the people at Epic games are working on...Or is it?
As expected from the Patchbox Please-Fix-Me.
i like the fact that they added in backend tweaks for things like weapons and such just give the game dedicated servers ad all issues are solved
This game is just broken. Hope this helps.
have you played since the patch? it is a completely different game and has actually been fun the last couple times i've played(aside from the 2 times i ran into standbyers) the game isn't 'broken', at this point it is no more flawed than games like cod:waw
Im glad you guys are enjoying the game,, I dont think its broken, I just think they should have taken more time to balance the guns and make the controls less sluggish. Its not my type of game but I gotta respect anyone who appreciates this game. I think Unreal Tounament is Epic's best game, Its been my Halo killer for the longest time.
UT used to be my favorite but after UT3 that kinda went out the window UT seemed incredibly out of step with todays FPS games, it didn't seem like it was leading the pack anymore i only played it for about a week and then i got tired of it which is a shame, i was really hoping for it to be fantastic to this day it is hard to be the fun of the original unreal tourny, and the game of the year addition that was released...i still have those installed on my pc and play from time to time it is amazing that there are still may servers running that game UT 2004 was ace as well, i skipped 2007 because i was busy with school but for me ut3 was a major disappointment
Er dude, UT2007 and UTIII are the same game, they just changed the name a bit before it was released.
well then that would explain why i never played it i assumed 3 was an update on 2007
UTIII is a good game, but it just doesn't seem to have the punch that UT and UT2004 did when they came out. I can't put my finger on what makes it like that, though. Maybe they're just not innovating the series enough. With games like Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2, I don't really feel the urge to play UTIII online.
patch of wars :) glitch of wars :) broken game of wars :)
sorry dude, i feel your pain. I bought unreal tournament for PS3
Weird, I thought LBP, R2, and Socom already had patches to them. Little Buggy Planet Brokecom Damn.. couldn't think of one for R2 :)
This my first approved story, and I really appreciate your opinions. Thanks again!
and welcome! 8D Don't forget to browse the forums as well mate.
And bubbles to epic games for at least trying to fix what should be a great game!
Indeed, it may have started a broken mess, but at least they're making efforts to make it what it should be. The gameplay has so much potential.
Hallelujah!Once there's official confirmation that the major problems in GeOW2 have been ironed out,I'll buy the game again.
Yeah, I stopped playing anything but campaign and horde shortly after release. I may pick up the online again if everything gets nicely ironed out. I need to pull myself away from Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2 first, though...
I have both consoles and R2>GoW2 but Huffy said that GoW on PS3 would allow him to do things with the game that he wanted but couldn't do so don't be suprised if GoW3 goes Multi-plat (also third party developers want $$$$!)
game sent to bargain bin week 2 of having it, SP side great MP side a complete joke,how did the reveiwers miss the major flaws in multi play mode,it was a damn shame they messed up the mp side,socom got slaughtered for the same reason,s and they gave this a ten, sp i can agree on just about,but mp was about a 4 at best.epic better get the next one bang on or its a rental.
because reviewers don't play on live, they play on a network called "partner net" which mirrors live for testing and preview purposes only review machines and dev kits have access to this network, but most major reviewers like ign have these kits any review you see that comes out before the street date probably wasnt played on the live network if it is a legal copy of the game partner net isn't populated with people whose main goal is to find ways to glitch or cheat, and it is much less populated so lag isn't the issue it is with live, therefore glaring bugs aren't noticed because people are playing as the game was intended and they aren't straying from the path
Obvious evidence that Epic is finally realizing how bad they screwed up this game. Too bad everyone has already traded Gears 2 in for COD:[email protected] for a sound MP experience. Better luck next time Epic, maybe you'll consider Beta testing Gears 3.
i would not call waw a sound experience, glitchers everywhere in that game and it has this odd quality of freezing for 1-2 seconds during a game seemingly at random(not lag related) which is very annoying it sucks being frozen in the reload animation and when you regain movement it goes straight to kill cam
Yeah, CoDWaW has a lot of issues of its own, many just being simple design flaws and not bugs. I'd say CoD4 would be a much better replacement. I still play that game more than WaW.
wow i cant remember a game with these many problems. I still have my copy, im just waiting for them to get all the problems ironed out. I hope...
1 word Socom
i disagree, this wasnt bad compared to somethings that have come out...i've seen much much worse
Yeah, there have definitely been worse releases, but any game that releases with so many gaping flaws is inexcusable. That's what happens when your publisher rushes a release date, as I'm sure that was the case with Gears 2.
im sorry did I say something wrong????? You dont think Socom has been patched to hell and back to make the game the way it should have been at retail? To bad so sad I own Socom and your wrong..... for that guys response all I had to say was Socom.. so grow up and stop being a fanboy.
It's no secret that Socom was a broken mess at release. There's really no need to be in denial of that. It's been greatly patched up, and it's a much better game now for it.
The fixed most of Cod WAW's glitches. The only one that is left is the bayonet jumping. But why would they want to get rid of that? I do agree that COD WAW is a better game, but that doesn't mean that people aren't enjoying Gears right now. My friends play it alot, and I wish I could join their game sometimes, but I got rid of my copy already. I still own the combustible map pack and the 5 other maps, but something about the game just doesn't appeal to me.
Please Epic make Guardian a separate playlist. It is what I live for.
but which other game had more problems than gears 2? The only one i think comes close is socom, which i also have, but at least the guys who made socom didn't change how people played socom like epic changed the way people played gears. For example, grenades and how you stick them and the smoke grenades, the power of the weapons, etc. Again im not saying gears 2 is a bad game in anyway, its just that the game has some issuse that need to be addressed.
well it seems like a growing trend for so many games... to just patch it constantly... I wish theyd just get it all worked out b4 they hit retail...but I guess in some cases they wont know what some of the glitches are until 1 million people are playing it.... but it something that should be looked at tho
Well, every game is going to be broken in one way or another on release. How bad these flaws are is the issue here. Games like Gears 2 and Socom had such glaring issues at the start. Patches are great, but relying on them too heavily is bad practice. I wish more devs could be like Valve is with patching their PC games but MS makes stuff so hard with their long approval process. On PC, TF2 gets 1-2 patches each month. It's nice to see that kind of dedication from a dev.
Maybe the story will be a DLC or patched in later.
you can not patch up a weak foundation ut3 engine. the foundation was not improved on since gears1.( very bad clipping,lag,glitching,weapon glitching issue, unbalance MP maps and weapons) this why the gears2 has even more glitches/lag then ever before. it is like saying i will give a whale a "one" tic tac to cover up the bad odor coming from its mouth!! Dl patching will not work in the long run period for gears2. creating DL patches take money / time and epic does not want to spend all of 2009 on fixing this game. enjoy what you can out of this broken game and raise the middle finger on gears3 and do not buy the map packs!!! they should be free because of this broken astray game anyway!!!
the rag doll physics are unpredictable and can sometime leave you on the ground for a full 10 seconds. Also some more weapon tweaks need to be made and just maybe take out frag stick to walls to bring the flow of the game back to what gears 1 was.
I downloaded the patch and played a ranked game. I got caught with a smoke grenade under the bridge on Canal only to end up on top of it. The lag seems worst than before but atleast an attempt was made to correct things. Unreal Engine has the sorriest Ragdoll physics in the world. a few set animation wold've been legit for getting hit with your back turned or face first. Oh andd on't get caught with a smoke on the stairs.....its over.
I'm still waiting for an achievement patch for the first Gears of War. Beat that game in Hardcore and didn't receive a lot of achievement points.
