Title Update 5 went live for Epic Games' Gears of War 2 today, bringing with it a host of fixes that target everything from the Roadie-Run camera, to sticky-walk, the Tac/Com, Horde mode EXP, and more.
Aka, Epic releases fifth Gears 2 PATCH. Why not call it a patch? Maybe it's cause "patch" sound bad because it means you released a broken product? It's like calling a garbage man a "sanitation specialist" or something.
I've tried to get into Gears 2 multi...maybe this "patch" will make me play it again. Probably not...Uncharted 2's got my full attention right now.
Gears of War 2 was pretty buggy months after launch, which is a shame because it was fun.
I still play Gears 2 online. I'm glad Epic has continued to update the game and the playlists. So many people still play the game. I think it's consistently the 4 most played game over XBL. Annex, Wingman, King of the Hill and Horde on Map packs are my favorite modes.
The word "patch" implies a fix, while "title update" implies a simple improvement. Patches are good, don't run from the name. Nobody can predict all the issues that will come up in an online game, so patches exist to FIX them when they do.
5th one coming in now. How many more Epic? That is some bad programming. Will Gears 2 ever be fixed? They might even have to abandon this Gears 2's sloppy codebase and built Gears 3 from the ground up.
World of Warcraft has had plenty of patches that fix things. Does that mean they released a broken game? People I swear lol
yeah, i know Gears 2 has a ton of problems, but once you get used to it, its not that bad...
Not trying anything here but is that how you justify your purchase of a buggy game (Not for gears 2 alone) ? get used to it's bugs/glitch/errors ? I've quit MGO because it became a glitchfest especially during Survival events. I didn't get used to it, I had enough of it. Devs are the one getting used to consumers tolerating their mistakes. That's why some devs are still making and releasing broken games.
10s of thousands of gears players still have a blast. I wouldn't even have known about most of the "bugs" if they werent exasperated on the internet
lol,that game been patcht since it was released
After the 4th update there were still major problems, how many updates they going to have to make the multiplayer at least mediocre.
I wish they would make the bots smarter or so they wouldn't kill themselves with the boomshot and torque bow all the time.
Well at least they havnt just left it. TBH they should just release a patch that fixes all of the major problems than doing it a bit at a time.
borderlands for ps3 and almost every one of their titles multiplayer since launch.
I'm glad they still support it. This tells me there is probably more DLC coming... : )
i was in love with gears, I had high expectations for gears 2, singleplayer was fun but multiplayer broke my heart. Whatever made the first one fun seemed to be sucked out of the sequal. i recently purchased a ps3 slim, and I just wanted to say one thing to those who loved gears but are stuck playing gears 2 multiplayer. Uncharted 2 multiplayer is what we always wanted gears to be. thats all. give it a shot, you will be in heaven.
