Short Pause LIVE: Gears of War Ultimate Edition Gameplay
Last night, I had every intention of streaming of just one hour of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, but I got completely enthralled with the gameplay and overall presentation of the game that I went on to stream it for 2.5 hours instead! I've really enjoyed my time with this game and it further cements my stupidity in passing on the Xbox brand before this gen. I'd even go as far as to say that I prefer the Gears of War campaign and gameplay over the Halo series (so far anyways) by quite a large margin. The control scheme may seem a little dated compared to today's standards, but even then, the gameplay itself is tight and responsive, which was really surprising. I'm looking forward to finishing the campaign in order to prepare myself for Gears of War 4 next year. I may even fire up Gears of War 2 via backwards compatibility later this fall when the digital version becomes available; I've heard from many around the Short Pause offices that it's the best entry in the series. What are your thoughts on Gears of War: Ultimate Edition so far? Do you feel it does justice to the original version? Let us know in the comments below! Enjoy the video.
