Buy, Wait imo sold out a little here, he really didn't like it and in the end he still called it a buy. Imo his words added up wait until sale, but something tells me he was pulled a little here.

Yeah 12 hours at $50/$60 isn't gonna cut it for me in 2019. But luckily there is something called Gamepass, I can easily do this and 1 or 2 more things in a month in the near future. That, that will be worth it. Gears with 12 hours at best is $20 for me and more like $15. I'm around $1/hour now or better.

12 hours is too much if you don’t like it after 2 or 3 hours! But it seems like a good package to me even at 60 dollars. It has campaign co-op (3 player, but one player is a support robot), 4 5v5 multiplayer modes, a 3p co-op escape/L4D style thing and 5p Horde mode which are probably fairly replayable. Only tried each mode except horde once but they seem very solid. I also probably wouldn’t spend retail unless friends were playing but not because of value, but because I just have trouble justifying spending sixty bucks on anything these days. With gamepass it’s a no brainer. Definitely a quality package compared to a lot of 60 dollar games. I actually can’t remember the last time I got one of them for something other than a first party Nintendo game for the family.

Gears games are horribly on rails - no thanks.

Angry Centaur was interesting--I heard "12-hour campaign" and massively cringed. The graphics and game modes looked like Half-Life 2 meets Unreal tournament(s) meets Doom3 meets Borderlands (all those cartoon colors) meets a couple of other notable games of the past few years. I also found it somewhat amusing that the guy was using both a PC with a 2080ti in it and an xBox running at a scaled up fake 4k...I couldn't help wondering what his review would have been like had he been confined to the console only--as very few people will own a $1400 3d card in a $4k computer and an comparatively very inexpensive xBox. (What would be the point?) Ah, well, I don't like mindless shooters, anyway, so I'll pass, and with gusto! Console fare just does nothing for me at all--never has. Give me Witcher 3 and presumably Cyberpunk 2077 all day long. Now those are games worthy of the appellation! This looks like penny arcade fare with delusions of grandeur...;)

Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk were/will be released day and date on consoles, with feature parity in all but rendering and and control input. They are as at least as much console games as Gears. I also own a PC and multiple consoles. There are benifits to such depending on what your friends and family use for multiplayer and how broad your tastes in games are.

I am looking forward to this because, for some odd reason, Mrs. B loves watching me play them and she has gotten really invested in the story. I have no idea why. She readily admits that it is shallow.

12 hours is usually all I want in a linear campaign game - it's about perfect. Some of my favorite games fell nicely into that timeframe, and I can think of some that just dragged afterwards.

Meanwhile, I'm not sure if you've played Half Life 2 or Doom 3 lately if the graphics seem similar.

It is well known that I cannot err--and so, if you should happen across an error in anything I have written you can be absolutely sure that *I* did not write it!...;)
