@Rex,

What did you think of the graphics?

From what I have seen so far it seemed that besides some higher res textures and better lighting that they were very similar to even the original GoW.

IMO, just not overly impressive.

>It was difficult to feel any emotion for the new characters

I can honestly say I've never felt any emotion for GOW characters. It's more about hanging out with my friends and shooting imaginary monsters, and we've had a lot of fun doing so over the years.

Looks good, but there needs to be an option for those of us still rollin Win 7. Gears 4 isn't DX12, right? Unless I'm missing something, there's no reason other than Microsoft just being d!cks about pushing a software upgrade for this limitation.

Honestly, they might as well put a big sign saying, "Download me from a dark corner of the internet!" on this game.

I'll go through the hassle of updating my OS when there's an actual reason, not to play a game I've played 3x before.

If it's not on Steam and only available on shitty Windows Store, no thanks.

Hmm, so is it still 4 player coop in the campaign or just 2 player? I hope it is four because if it's just two then that really is a throwback.

graphics look horrible, they should of went with a new engine for this game, looks too much like 360 game with high-res textures

plus it's not going to sell that much

@Brandolfday Yes, the PC version is DX12, which is one of the main reasons why you need Windows 10 + Anniversary Update (1607) to play. Lame, I know. It forced me to just recently update to Windows 10 just to play it.

I'm curious as to the cross platform capability. I last heard it was mixed where Horde/Campaign will be but other multiplayer modes will not be.
