I think I've played 2.5 of these games. Do they always leave the ending open enough for a sequel?

This will be cross-play with PC/Xbone which is neat.

I am guessing because Microsoft wants to sell games to those that own PC and not an Xbox.

Multiplayer in the first one was so fun, because there was so much screwing around by us.

Friends and I would play the horde gametype A LOT. Other than that i wasn't a huge fan. i played the beta that came out while we were in college quite a bit, but never actually got the full game.

Gears of War 4 Has Split-Screen Campaign Co-Op on PC

If only Jocelyn would play with me...

I've been playing this on PC with Feddersen who is on Xbox. There is a little jank with the party stuff, but works fine once you figure it out. (had to use the Xbox app on PC and have that running at the same time as the game).

So far the campaign is just okay. I didn't play 3 so I'm lost on the story and the main guys are like 60 years old now so you play as their son. I need to read a wikipage or something because 2-3 hours into the game and we have only fought robots. No locust.

Rumor is that Wags got this. Going to play campaign or solo? I wasn't planning on doing anything other then coop campaign, but I did do Horde worth Travis and Feddersen the other night

I was planning to try out campaign but I'd play with others if they want. I ended up downloading on PC instead of Xbone because I don't pay for Xbox Live anymore and I also didn't want to delete RDR2 yet to make room on the hard drive.

So far campaign is meh. Maybe what I enjoy in games has changed a lot since Gears, because it feels pretty lackluster. But for $5 it's worth playing for sure if you have enjoyed the others.

I figure for $5 it's worth checking out. I don't think I've played since the original Gears but I enjoyed it.

Read Wikipedia first. I had to bring myself up to speed.

Finished this last week. It was very underwhelming. The game was reviewed well, so I know it's just me and how my game preferences have changed over the years.

The story was maybe 7 hours long.
