I only got to play one match last night until the servers went down for hours.

am I tripping or does the game do that thing where every assist counts as an "elimination"?

because I got shit on in my first match but supposedly somehow still got 14 eliminations. they have this feature in CoD BLOPS4 but it makes more sense in that because the TTK is way lower than Gears.

I can't figure any of the customization shit out. I don't see my Halo Reach skins, I don't see my supply drops, I don't see my boosts etc.

I did not know you could be demoted if you don't keep killing enemies yourself instead of using the GF summons or turning them into cards.

One of the quirks of FFVIII is you are discouraged from getting XP and leveling up too much, but your rank will go down if you do that.

best match so far (excluding the fact that my team lost)

also the servers constantly going down/glitching is infuriating, this has honestly been a pretty shitty launch in terms of things actually functioning. When it works, it's really fun.

It is a new change for the normies and only certain modes.
Did you also press start on main menu to bring up customizations? All my Halo, Terminator, beta and Gilded Gears 4 unlockables were there.

>>42097007
The risk of cross-plat. They manage three versions of the game; Xbox, Windows 10 and Steam.
Steam version is actually quite different in that it can run on an OS as low as Vista which means that version is capable of running on worse/older hardware. Windows 10 is generally only on newer/stronger machines.

You connect your Switch to this with an HDMI, and connect a second HDMI cable from this to the computer.
Then you can stream by using Elgato's software plus something like OBS streaming program.

EDIT: Fugg it was already suggested lol. Oh well I just wanted to say how nice I found the little HD60S to be.

He wanted poor fag solutions, he thought mawy e it had built in twitch streaming like other modern consoles have.

I actually bought an elgato, I gotta mess with the settings though because on default Switch capture settings it has a black box around the border.

Try cropping some of the view you get on your capturing software?
What do you use it for, do you stream stuff?

Also yeah, Playstation and Xbox has streaming tools but not Switch. All he could do is point-camera-at-screen method with his phone or something in such a case.

They have matchmaking.
They have private game lobby list for all modes. (Fucking yes!)
Campaign with three players.
Campaign has open world exploration areas with side quests.
Upgradeable/playable Jack in campaign and other modes.
Horde mode.
Escape mode.
Hive building mode.
Arcade PVP.
Standard PVP.
Bot PVP.
Ranked PVP.
Free maps for everyone in all modes, no pass needed for private.
Launched with 12 maps.
Crossovers with other movies and games. (Halo and Terminator are probably just the start.)

I wouldn't be surprised if Beast mode gets patched in.

>>42097443
Most of what you listed is the bare minimum for a Gears game relative to previously set standards (excluding Escape and private game lobby lists).

Where's ranked Execution? Where's Cole, Baird, Dom, or any Locust character besides RAAM (who you could only get through a limited-time Gears 4 challenge)? Why is there such poor power weapon variety? Why are only five of the "new" maps actually new (or three if you don't include beta maps lol)?

The gameplay is possibly the best it's ever been but the actual content, at least for Versus, is abysmal. I'm level 55 now and I've barely gotten anything as a reward. The supply drops are pathetic--it's mostly just bloodsprays and emblems, not even camos or character skins.

I know why they do this shit--so it's easy for them to feed you "new" content that isn't new. OG Cog pack featuring Cole, Baird, Dom and Hoffman--get it in October for 2,000 iron!

Also they kept talking about "player-friendly" microtransactions but then go and sell a fucking thumbs-up emote for $10? Are you shitting me?

I gotta say though, Horde being 60fps on Xbox is pretty sweet. Actually beat all 50 waves in my first public match with randoms tonight.

>>42097446
Most of what I listed was not in previous games.
Although maybe Gears 3 had 3/4 person co-op? None of the others did.

Multiplayer is focused around esports so they brought over the most popular esports maps. It's odd that Gridlock isn't a launch map but it will probably be in the first or second batch of maps.

They're player friendly in that you don't have to spend $100+ in the hopes of getting all the Las Vegas exclusive event skins. You can buy exactly what you want. It just sucks that they're using the Fortnite limited cosmetic rotation system. I much prefer how LoL/Smite do it where they put everything up for purchase and add to it.
Iron is non-issue, you can earn it in game.
AAPE being exclusively $20 at launch is shit though.
Locust also weren't available at Gears 4 launch.

>>42097453
Gears 2 had 4-person co-op iirc.
>Iron is non-issue, you can earn it in game
I was reading an article about this and if you go through all FIFTY ranks in Tour Of Duty, you earn less than $10 worth of iron. That's pretty bad, albeit still better than RNG I guess. To put it in perspective, I have around 10hrs of MP played and I've gone up maybe 5 ranks in the Tour Of Duty. Like I said, insanely grindy.

They'll tweak iron payouts.

>>42097485
It says more about GamePass than anything. Most people by now understand what Gears is and it's definitely not for everyone. Still people giving it another shot for free. 5 may retain players 4 lost or might gain new players that never knew they would like the series or the new modes.

It means they're listening to feedback (in fact Execution was already hotfixed in around the time I had made that post).
I don't think iron will be as common as the credits or whatever the currency in 4 is but that won't really matter as you can buy whatever you actually want. I just hope they switch up the store and at least give us a wider selection.

I just wasted a bunch of money on eBay Gears 5 cosmetic promotional code shit, so current mood:

And the sad thing is that I've played most of them (not counting the ones i got for free off of offers and things) at least 3-5 hours... and there are a select few that I have poured at least 800+ hours into... and now I don't even touch them anymore.

Playing Blood: Fresh Supply.

Good, wholesome '90s FPS the way it's supposed to be. No retarded regenerating health or only carrying two weapons.

Nightdive Studios is truly doing God's work. Though I must agree with Yahtzee that the name is stupid.

Not quite up to the bar set by Quake 1 in terms of gothic horror-themed shooter, but close.
