Gears of War and Windows LIVE Issue

Microsoft's Gamerscore Blog outlines solutions for issues with Windows LIVE and the just-released PC editions of Gears of War (thanks FiringSquad). The update offers two ways to address an issue with the automatic Windows LIVE update that accompanies the release, one is to manually update LIVE before installation, and the other involves restarting the game, which for some reason involves nine steps. The post concludes by saying: "Microsoft Game Studios is working on a title update to be released in the near future that will allow users to avoid manually exiting “Gears of War” to apply the update. The good news is that once you go through the above process, you won't have to do it again! "

Both Gears and Bioshock were designed to target 16:9 widescreen; meaning, the view those games give at 16:9 is the intended view while narrower aspect ratios like 16:10, 4:3 and 5:4 are all vert+ from that. Granted, Bioshock does have an absurdly narrow FOV in widescreen by default, but that because that is the FOV developers wanted the game to run at, a consolish FOV like the Halo games. The views in Gears aren't nearly so cramped.
