Gears of War 3 Beta Review: Bloody Lag Fest!

gears of war 3 betaGears of War 3 beta is up and running and of course, as with any beta launches; it’s lagged as hell!

Gears of War 3 beta has been something I’ve been waiting on since Epic Games first announced plans of making a third installment to the franchise. Like all of the other GOW 3 fans, I went out like a good boy and bought Bulletstorm: Epic Edition so I could guarantee myself a place in the beta testing event of the year. Was I ripped off?

Let’s just say that I attempted to play Gears of War 3 beta this morning and the lag was so bad that I almost threw my controller out of the window. I know, all online betas are usually lagged to hell but you would think it would be fixed by now.

That being said, I will still fight through the lag to try out the GOW 3 beta as I know the game will surely be amazing. With May 15th set as the ending date, I will most likely be abusing my XBOX 360 for the next month as I blast people into a bloody pulp.

  1. Why does that not surprise me? Don’t get me wrong I am a big Gears fan, but I guess waiting an extra 7 days was worth keeping $50 bucks in my pocket; with that being said, please keep us updated as the day goes on as far as the lag and any tips and tricks you may learn within the next few days on how to beat the lag. I can only imagine once it opens up to the public in 5 days how much worst it’ll get. Alohas.

  2. Hey dumb ass GOW3 uses DEDICATED SERVERS so if it lags it’s just you not the whole lobby. Try to fix your connection and stop blaming the game
