Gears of War finally comes to PC!!!

I skipped Mafia III for this and I don't regret it one sec. The graphics are brilliant, the MP is awesome and Horde mode is pure fun. The customization of Graphical settings to keys is deep and unlike the recent Mafia III fiasco. My 970 is pulling this at 60fps+ on 1080p with no frame drops. Coalition and Microsoft - Kudos!!! PS - The Microtransactions are crazy in game though. Did not expect that. Caused me to revise my rating.

Downloading 74gb is crazy:)

74gb is too big to download and I am not a big fan of DX12(Still sucks). I hope its not gonna be like Quantum break release.




Platform: PC

Awesome Game

I was so skeptical about getting another Windows Store game at first after GOW Ultimate edition because of download issues. But they really improved & fixed it with latest Windows 10 CU. Downloaded GOW 4 in just 2.15 Hrs. So far I am liking the campaign. Plus I got Ultimate edition so got to play 4 days early. Thanks Coalition & Microsoft for making the game available on PC. Please release GOW 2 & 3 on PC as well.
