Here's the skinny on the new 'Beast Mode' in 'Gears of War 3,' straight from Executive Producer Rod Fergusson, who tells us how playing as the Locust, killing all of humanity, was hatched, idea-wise. He also talks about the state of online gaming today.

    ok boys, its not that serious, lets check the testosteroine at the door. Why do so many people take this so seriously, it is a game, you are supposed to play it to have fun. Relax...

    I HAVE A LOT OF PROBLEMS WITH GEARS FIRST, WHAT IS UP WITH HAVING TO BUY ALL MAP PACKS TO PLAY ON THEM ONLINE. SECOND WTF IS UP WITH THE SERVERS I MEAN I DONT WANT TO SIT THERE AND WAIT FOR PLAYERS THEN THE HOST QUITS. THIRD GEARS IS THE MOST COMPETATIVE GAME OUT THERE I PLAYED UP TO LEVEL 70 AND MADE IT 5000 IN THE WORLD FOR GUARDIAN BY PLAYING WITH THE SAME TEAMMATES FOR 1 YEAR THEN THINGS GOT WORSE EVENTUALLY EVERYONE STARTED BICKERING ABOUT HOST AND CONNECTIONS AND RANKS I THINK PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE A RIGHT TO CHOOSE CONNECTIONS AND HIDE THEIR RANK I DONT WANT SOMEONE SAYING I CHEATED BECAUSE I REACHED LEVEL 100 FAIRLY.

    A couple of things...

    1. Microsoft does have player and ranked matches built in as a service. Developers are the ones who keep changing it up, because the reality is that MS screwed up ranked matches. You can't invite your friends into a ranked match, so no one wants to play them. That being said, players don't want to be limited on what they can accomplish in a match type. Ranked matches tend to be the only way to track your stats and also level up (in games that allow you to). Ranked matches should ONLY put you on the leaderboards. Playing in player matches should do everything ranked does - but keep you off the leaderboards.

    2. If you want to make the game less intense for new players - take off cross-team chat. Also, remove gamertags of the opposing team. Most arguments spawn across teams, and that's a way to fix it. Make the enemy anonymous.

    3. The Xbox 360 isn't PC. All the game logic doesnt have to go through the host. It works for Call of Duty, why not in Gears? It sounds like you're trying to rip COD and only a poor game designer would do that. You have to recognize why COD is successful...becuase when you shoot people in COD they actually die. It's not like in Gears where you might shotgun someone at point blank range and nothing happens due to you not being the host.

    id say one of the reasons why theres so much hate anger etc is that people, well 1 say things they dont mean when they get mad and 2 in this days society there is very little encouragement to say whats actually on your mind in real life. so many of us hide what we truly think inside because of a fear of consequences and when you're on a mike and the guy your pissed at is states or countries apart then the fear of consequence goes away and the true side of people, the side theyve been forced to hide comes out. im not sure if there's any real way to fix the issue without redesigning society however for the time being possibly the best solution would be to maybe have it track the games you play and have you select your play style (friendly, competitive friendly, or just competitive) where you start out just having fun and then progressively higher up is where all the annoying trash talkers can go play and fight amongst themselves while the rest of us can still enjoy a simple friendly match that doesnt always involve having to wait for our friends to be online at the same time to play.

    Take notes from Bungie on matchmaking options such as playing players in certain areas of the world. Wether it be all, USA only, West coast only, or your state only. Plus your Lancer is over-powered for how "lazy" it is to just pull and hold on the trigger compared to the more skillful Hammerburst. I also noticed in your Update 6 that the shotty is less consistent now. Sometimes it doesn't even shoot at ALL when you trigger it. Other stupid glitches like your weapon changing in a roll or side when u didn't even touch the d-pad!
