    @Darth_Flibble You don't need to take it off the skiff. Just walk up to the spot where you want to break and press x

    There is no spot to walk to, I found the spot before finding the fuel and went back to it and there is nothing. found a YT video of them doing and should be magnifying glass but its not there. even reload the previous checkpoint and did the ride to the signal but still broken :(

    edit: restarted the xbox and reloaded the game and previous checkpoint and the magnifying glass appeared, thank fuck for that!

    Am I too late to the argument about the "Ultimate" Edition perks?

    What's the argument about them?

    Steam version seems to be getting review-bombed. Guessing that's to do with "the argument".

    Seems a bit bollocksy to me. Much as I hate the plot and characters, the gameplay in campaign mode lifts this well above average quality.

    That jumpy, stabby, spitting cunt can do one. Del too, fucking useless bastard.

    Iím quite upset as you may infer.

    Not helped by the fact that Ďrestart current checkpointí and Ďrestart last checkpointí are so fucking close to each other and in the chaos I have hit the wrong one a few times in a bid to get back into it.

    That boss at the end of Act 2 took me a fair few tries. A really fun fight.

    After struggling with it, finally beating it only for the game to crash and not save, and then having the exact same thing happen a second time, I chose a different word to describe it.

    Does it rhyme with "clucking Bell"

    I started the campaign (and was very much enjoying it) but I have been absolutely distracted by the MP.

    As previously mentioned, Iíve never been a big fan of Gears and have never spent longer than an hour with any of the MP modes.....but this one has got me.

    Also, playing as Kait in MP and sprinting around throwing Incendiary grenades at everyone is just lovely......but I worry that itís a tad OP and may be nerfed :(

    As I don't really know how to describe the sound of an Xbox controller flying through the air being chased by the word fuck, this is a reasonable approximation.

    Nothing that will ever change about gears is getting stuck on/to shit when you need to roll to safety 🤦🏻‍♂️

    Does it feel, I don't know, stickier to you this time around? I swear I've died more to getting stuck on cover in this game than in all the previous ones.

    Yeah, in the thick of it the cover mechanics are just too easy to get into. Iím certainly something of a gears novice but it is damned frustrating. Also, to traverse, whilst covered, around an object seems Ďunpredictableí I see a prompt which appears to indicate ĎAí will help move around the object but I find myself rolling out of cover and generally twatting about acting like a bullet sponge....

    Yeah you donít appear to be able to sneak around cover edges. Pretty sure it worked fine on previous games. Always seem to break cover here.

    What is wrong with people, and by people I mean an annoying subsection of gamers that are essentially man children. Because let's be honest an overwhelming amount of the people doing this shit are blokes.

    Because apparently they think all their pissing and moaning is actually going to make a difference.
    Good luck with that.

    Last boss is fun..........

    Aaaannnd done, that was bloody fantastic.
    Bar some dodgy difficulty spikes (looking at you act 2🤬🤬🤬;) and a random bullshit element to the last boss, it was top.
    Combat was sublime, story hit some real high points and touching in places with great voice acting and some very funny banter at times, and thereís a humdinger in the last act thatís going to make things challenging to pick up going forward.
    Could have done with spreading out the open world sections a touch more and maybe made them a tad
    shorter.
    I think playing on experienced really gave some heft to the battles, but had a few rage moments on the way.

    Not played a campaign as good as that for some time and I think itís the best gears yet.

    Consider me back on board, bring on no 6

    Now just to find out itís fucked me on my difficulty achievements etc no doubt as I know the collectibles are fucked for act 2 and start of 3.

    After all that itís just blackscreened on me after the credits, is there a stinger, I think there should be.

    Turns out there isnít but Iíve not got a completion achievement either so looks like Iíll hhave to do the boss again possibly to count.

    The final chapters of act 2 has changed my mind a bit about gears5, act 1 and most of act 2 great but the mine section then the bug. Now the fucking sires and Del is useless as he is holding a fucking metal pipe instead of using a fucking weapon. The AI has barely improved from the 1st game. the boss on chapter 5 is going be fun as its just me shooting it in the back also the boss is just reskin of berserker from gears 1 irrc

    edit: del the prick has pistol now, yeah that will help

    It's the same here in Gears 5 too, but you have to be close to the person you want to swap weapons with.

    Thanks, I will remember that for next time. Had to drop the difficulty to easy to get past the act 2 boss. On easy, its a joke how easy it is but on the next level up, its so much harder as the AI is useless piece of shit and does not help even when it has fucking weapon out. For the next gears game I hope the AI improves as its quite poor and not improved much the early days

    I played it co-op with the mrs and she struggled with it. In the end I got her to hide and not shoot so she didnt get instakilled. As long as you keep trapping him it's not too bad.
