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! "

I also heard GoW has the same vert- issue with widescreen displays that Bioshock had. I know there are people that didn't notice in Bioshock, but I sure saw the difference between enabling the widescreen fix and not.

Seems like a common "feature" of UE3 games. Let's give normal ratio users the advantage!

BioShock, MoHA, and now GoW appear to all share the same problem. Haven't tested UT3, but I wouldn't be surprised.

Is it really hard to use hor+ widescreen instead of vert-? I've heard the spin "blah blah we designed it this way, it's not really vert- even though the picture is shorter than 4:3!" but it sounds like an excuse to me.
