Gears of War fix makes VGA worse

Reports are coming in that the VGA fix implemented by the recent Gears of War patch has actually made things worse. It seems the aspect ratio fix was to downgrade the resolution to the lowest possible setting (640 X 480). The result is an ugly, pixelated image.

i was playin gears with my bud earlier today to play the new maps (wich didnt impress me... AT ALL) and everything was f*cked up! not just in the presentaion but in the gameplay too! shotgun shots took forever to make an impact, so when u got a dudu down but he shot u with his shotgun and thought he missed u suddenly explode! we got so damn pissed. im not gonna play gears until this is resolved

Yeah, I didn't think there was anything wrong to begin with. I liked playing in letterbox widescreen at 720p on my 1280x1024 LCD. Now I'm stuck with 480p, and it looks quite bad.

Funny thing is if you go to the Epic Games forum Mark Rein was initially brushing off the new complaints saying that he had played at 1280x1024 and believed it looked great.

Gear of War was such a good game till the patch I hate the HOST saying in ranked match it gets frustrating when you want to play with your friends and work towards the Seriously achievment and it seams the changed something with the gernades and the beat downs of the larger weapons like sniper and BOOMSHOT! I do like how when people quit you still get your kills though thats about the only thing they fixed but please put the ranked matches back to how they were!
