    Taking one of your most "hardcore" games and adding a casual mode to multiplayer = XBOX LIVE HISSY-FIT!

    Someone grab popcorn, I'll put the forums on.

    If I ever bought Gears of War 3 (which I won't) and I ever played multiplayer on it (which I wouldn't), I'd probably play in Casual Mode.

    I mean, given you're on a joy-pad, you're impossibly limited by the control inputs anyway, so why not just make it even more brain dead?

    I would imagine there will be casual and hardcore servers, so you'll only end up playing with people with the same settings. I know damn sure I won't be playing alongside the semi-aimbotting whores.

    "Players who use Casual Mode will benefit from an increased aim assistance"

    Gears of War: Heavy Rain edition.

    as if the game isn't casual enough. get on with the next Unreal game please.

    Consoles, what a joke.

    Getting help from auto-aim, only for the most retarded.

    If you need this please find another hobby, maybe painting your house or something.

    S*D

    I think it's an excellent idea, especially the way that they're locking it off to people who've already played GoW. What exactly is the problem with making hardcore games more accessible to newbies? Video games are about having fun, not proving that you're a better player than everyone else.

    It kinda reminds me of the two-button mode EA added to Fifa11- none of my friends use it, but it meant my brother and sister were able to have a game with me without pressing pause every 10 seconds to explain every button combination for the dozenth time.

    Edit: People need to stop whinging like this is the only option. Where in the article does it say casual mode replaces the usual options? Clue: it doesn't

    Yep, it's a good idea.

    If it's a choice between this and a more general 'for casuals' nerfing which would ruin the game for veteran players , then surely this is better.

    it's a great idea, with one problem.. Locking it off to previous owners of GOW 1 and/or 2.. The previous owner might of been casual players, they might of tried online and failed terribily. Or they might be doing the online thing for the first time. It's a shame this mode isn't available to them to tempt them in...

    I see your point, but if you buy a game and turn out to be irreparably crap at it, you might want to think twice before you buy the sequel :)

    Agreed. If a lock out exists, it should only stop people who have multiplayer achievements in GOW 1 & 2, or beating the campaign on hard mode. Just trying the game shouldn't lock you out of trying to get into GOW 3.

    Not that I'd play it anyway, but I'd give the plan some approval.

    but GoW is already pretty casual. just compare it to UT games.

    to me, it's like saying BFBC2 isn't casual enough!

    I would have happily bet my house, and my entire salary until retirement that (Silly) comments like this would be posted.

    Thanks for not making me homeless and skint. And i'm a PC gamer.

    Good thing I don't pay attention to anything Epic says.
