    I initially wrote off that Dodgeball mode but that video and others I watched on youtube last night swayed my opinion. I wish TDM wasn't in the Beta. I'm a KOTH guy.

    Sawed-Off shotgun and Booshka not returning.
    Retro Lancer and Hammerburst recalibrated.
    Snub Pistol far weaker at range.
    When looking through the Longshot scope, you will be able to see your peripheral a bit more.
    Wall bouncing will be reduced via cooldown (i.e. can 'pull back on cover' aka wall bounce XX times and then won't be able to for YY seconds).

    I knew they'd fuck up the code release. Someone I'm friends with has a guy that got the game 2 months ago and got his code, yet me and him, day one players, still haven't gotten it yet. Meh. I'll just die in Dark Souls III until they get the code out.

    How is the repeated and constant announcing via every single one of their social media feeds over the past week of 'there are tons of codes going out, they'll come out in waves, it will take time.' fucking up?

    I was under the impression that the waves were in forms of when the game was played on the account. As in day one people get it first then the later on people got it in the next wave and and so on and so forth until the open beta. Not one mass code sent to people that played it before XXX.

    I was right after looking at the forums. Long as I get it before the day is over I don't care.

    We plan on sending out codes to users who played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition in chronological order from the date they first played. For example, if you played on the first day the game launched, you will most likely receive your code on the 18th. Players that jumped in toward the tail end of the deadline (April 11th) will probably fall toward the end of the distribution. Codes will arrive via Xbox Live Messages.

    Good beta overall however my cons list is short but I'll say them anyways:

    - Shooting delay with Gnasher coming out of roadie run/just general delay when shooting. It's made me lose loads of gunfights. Lag related or not it's a BIG issue.
    - Hammerburst is personally (and in MY opinion) and completely unusable. You'd be a FOOL to not use the lancer as your rifle. TC made it like the first game's but with worse recoil.
    - The TDM game mode has issues with spawn camping due to no spawn changes (or just not frequently enough), I've both done it and have had it done to me while playing.
    - The maps are mediocre at best. There's no life or intrigue to them. Dam is the best map in the beta, which isn't saying much. This is again MY opinion.
    - CCC seems completely absent from MP gameplay. Never once seen it used or have performed it on anyone. Which could be a good thing I suppose. Either way, it's a feature that's not really present.
    - B vaulting over cover after a roadie run sometimes doesn't work.

    Either way, I really have enjoyed my time with the beta so far. I've hit level 25. Open beta is tomorrow for everyone finally.

    Don't know why everyone jizzes their pants over Horde so much. Looks like 3 mixed with OverRun mode from Judgment. It's whatever.

    Upgraded to the Ultimate Edition...my last shot at pre-buying a Season Pass, but it's Gears so I have faith. Bring on tomorrow night...for the 1 hour I'll get to play it before heading out.

    Also, fair warning: This thing's almost 55gB in size. If you order it digitally you can preload it now but even with my insane ADSL speed it took a loooooong fuckin' time.

    Ultimate Edition is definitely the way to go. I'm a sucker for Steelbooks.

    Campaign was pretty fun. Final level of Act V was a lot of fun. Loved the twist at the end.

    I won't start the campaign till Monday probably. I've dove into the multiplayer pretty hard and predictably. I already have some great moments. I got a quad kill with a grenade on a KOTH match. It was a nice surprise.

    No, I've always found Horde meh. They made it a cool balance though.

    Finished the game the other night. Talk about a lack-luster ending...

    Beat the campaign last night. Really enjoyed the game. Did not enjoy the abrupt ending though.

    Yeah it was the worst kind of sequel fodder they could've done.
