Gears of War PC on November 6

Shacknews has word that the PC edition of Gears of War is expected in stores on November 6. Accompanying this tidbit they offer a bunch of screenshots including looks at new multiplayer maps and the game editor as well as their hands-on preview. On a semi-related note, GameDaily BIZ has a Q&A with CliffyB where he discusses plans for the Gears of War movie.

Nothing says "Microsoft required us to put this in here" like a 360 port.

ah yes, the alternate writing on the box that was 2nd place to "Games for Windowz".

I asked that same question when I was in the config for jericho and it listed the buttons (and the correct colrs, etc) for a 360 controller. ugh.

Nothing says shitty console port like a "use 360 controller" as a main feature in the menu.

Gears was good on the 360, but whats left of the PC gamer in me knows that it prolly won't satisfy the FPS hardcore types for very long.

There are enough MP games out there for FPS, that I am just looking to play through the single player story. Bargain bin please.

RE: "Shoot-lob a grenade-repeat"

OMG! Tell me he didn't just reveal the secret recipe to all FPS games to the unwashed masses. Well, at least he didn't mention the "Find a door that will open and then go through it." part.

I have faith in Cliffy, but I still will not buy any console port without a demo first.

ahh true i totally forgot about racing/flying games - i guess an xbox360 controller is good all-rounder.

But my main concern was, if you find yourself playing games that are xbox360 ports, and its more fun with a controller - then i'd assume you'd just play it on the xbox and not have to worry about installation and all of other pc concerns.

certain games simply play better with a gamepad...i.e.; Racing, flight games (or games like BF2 where you can fly planes as part of the game).

Flying is always better with a joystick! Otherwise I agree with you, that's why I just bought a 360 controller just for my PC. The Logitech Wingman Rumblepad's d-pad blows. Anything was an improvement over that.

And the analog triggers are a plus.

But as stated in another thread I would much rather play Prince of Persia with a gamepad on a PC then with a mouse or keyboard (trust me I tried), also Lego Star Wars pretty much required one for the PC.

Since when is no-respawn team deathmatch cause for such praise?

since counter strike came out for the pc.

At least Bungie tried to give you plenty of variety in Halo 3.

deployable weapons and other game modes are only new to consoles but years old on the pc.
