Gears of War 4 has been making waves in the gaming world fresh from release Oct.11. And already, it has received its share of pretty good reviews with Gears of War 4 with a 9.2 out of 10 from IGN. Could Coalition's latest game satisfy the gaming community?
Gears of War 4 Review
It seems that gamers did enjoy The Coalition's work with its first original title, Gears of War 4. It earned favorable responses from the gaming community especially with each of the game modes. However, the game isn't all perfect, we must admit. It went through several server issues which resulted to excruciating waiting periods and even every gamer's nightmare - lag. But still, some Gears of War 4 gamers are just too giddy to mind the game issues that they just shook them off and moved on. Other gamers experiencing lag which cost them a kill in online gaming would smash their controllers in frustration. Popular Twitch streamer, GoldGlove, is part of the latter.
Gears of War 4 Game Caused Twitch Streamer To Break Controller
In one Gears of War 4 Twitch stream from GoldGlove, everyone can see that he had almost won over and the person GoldGlove was shooting at is expected to go down in a bit (or would have exploded into tiny itty bits) but then something happened (which gamers loathe) - game lag! Due to this, GoldGlove ended up being killed which caused him to stand up and in despair, threw something, which appears to be an Elite controller, in a classic demonstration of game rage-quitting.
Aside from the fact that GoldGlove may have to shed more dinero to getting a new controller to play another round of Gears of War 4, there is still a problem that needs to be fixed. The game's main selling point is its multiplayer functionality, right? But if that functionality won't work as expected, many players will end up smashing their controllers, or in calmer terms, will have negative reviews about the game.
Gears of War 4 Update
The Coalition released a Gears of War 4 update that focuses on its multiplayer but still not addressing server stability issues. In fact, the update focuses on the multiplayer's divisive microtransactions that will make it easier for gamers to earn in-game credits. This also lowered the card packs' prices. Though the latest GoW4 update is a good thing, The Coalition still needs to fix the game's server stability to prevent GoldGlove and other gamers to rage on.
