View Full Version : Give us an MP Demo!

Who else here is tired of waiting for the final release? I say, when the game goes gold (any day now), put out a Gears 3 MP demo. It can be the same weapons/maps/skins as the beta, and it doesn't need any additions-it doesn't even need some in-game unlock. Just copypasta the beta, slap a different front-end on it, and let us tear each other apart! Please Epic, do it for the fans, we're dying here.

Post if you want it too, we need all the voices possible for Epic to see this.


EDIT: Before you post your comment without hindsight, I would like to refer you to my page 5 post. If you're not here to troll, you'll understand why.

Also, this is HYPOTHETICAL. Before you say it can't be done, or that it already was, I just want to see what you would prefer, HYPOTHETICALLY.

what I'm suprised about is that epic doesn't have a campaign demo, it's just strange that they wouldn't have demos for their campaigns that's all.

oh yeah and beta was dull and boring, alot better then the previous gears games but nonetheless dull and boring.

I thought it was fun but yeah, I had that idea a few days ago. Give us something like waves 1-10, with some trinket unlock at the end for the full game.

I don't know that any of this will happen. As it stands, Microsoft is the puppetmaster here. This could just be wishful thinking. But thank you for your input. If you would please, spread this around so it does gain momentum, in which ever direction this goes.

Thats cuz there was only 3 maps. But im sure the Horde mode demo will kick off better than the beta itself. As well as the reason for no Campaign demo is cuz experience will be spoiled. I prefer to be surprised by the campaign itself. I dont want to expect what will happen. I want it to happen by scaring me

Final production phases, nothing is coming out till Sept 20. Beta lasted a month, long enough to get a feel for what needed to be tweaked so there wasn't a repeat of gears 2. And it sure as hell wasn't boring!!!

well they've already showed clips of the campaign anyway, I'm just saying they should maybe put that up as the demo instead.

But see the problem with campaign demo is it doesnt help them fix the game. Horde demo sure does by telling them the cover doesnt work, or the lambent fired continously with no end. Things like that. Sure the campaign might fix errors but not much. Just like Jimmy Fallon found the glitch in the campaign lol

what are you saying about testing it for glitches?

I just want epic to release a campaign demo (like every other game company does) so I can enjoy the game before release, that's all.

I can see the reason why they wouldn't give us horde,beast, or MP demos but campaign demos are sort great for everygame and usually just make the game craved that much more.

They already had a beta which lasted a month and they're hard at work making the final changes to the game based on our feedback from the Beta. They're in the final stages of production right now and which just under 2 months until the game's release, why would they release a MP demo?

Those trying to get wings should stay optimistic. And worse comes to worse, just start playing Gears 3 without your wings for Gears 2. Unless there is some extremely rare/amazing item you get on Gears 3 by having the veteran gear achievement, etc. I say just have fun and play a bunch on special XP weekends. =)

While I would absolutely love to be playing Gears of War 3 right now, it's completely unrealistic to ask for. The release date is September 20th and there isn't anything we can do about it except be patient. "Because we want it" is unfortunately not a good enough reason for Epic to give this to us.

Alright, the general consensus is boo-****ing-hoo, wait for the full thing. I get that. And I DO remember the beta. I got into it with Bulletstorm. But think of it this way:

If not for the fact that only a few of us (apparently) want more time with the game befre it comes out, then it (whatever IT is) could be a chance for people new to Gears to try the game before they make the decision to jump in. As it stands, the only real Newbie-friendly feature is the casual mode in mp, which goes away after 10 kills and countless deaths.

I get that you guys are saying no. It was just an idea that a few of my friends and I had. You guys don't need to be assholes about it.

As you don't know me personally, let me sum this topic up: I had a bull**** wishful-thinking idea, which makes up 95% of the ideas that I do have. Does anyone care? No. Do I? No. Will they eventually be copied in some way, shape, or form, and implememted successfully? Absolutely. Will the copier get credit? Yes. Will the copier know that they were not the first ones to have that idea? Not necessarily.

actually it can't.

The servers have already been set to the retail game and the beta files have all been deleted. The maps are being reworked for the retail game as are weapon alterations.

MS also would not allow it to re-open, and if they did, the certification process would probably take it until launch anyway.

At this point I'm talking about any sort of demo/small insignificant thing that they feel generous enough to put out. I couldn't care less about the mp aspect at this point. I'm just tired of watching the same Gears3 vids on youtube over and over, waiting for the game. I'd like to get my hands on some gameplay in between now and when the full thing comes out. I'd be satisfied just by playing a floor demo like at sdcc, once, but as I probably will never get the chance to go to that kind of event, I'm stuck here, *****ing to you people, who obviously don't care.

I think Tao is just trying to let you know that it won't happen, even if you already know that it won't. And forgive me if this sounds sarcastic, I'm certainly not trying to get snappy with you or anything, but I think that every single player on these forums would be stoked if they heard the game was going to release early or if there was going to be a Beta 2.0 so we could all get some more time in with an absolutely amazing game, but at the same time everybody also knows that it won't happen so nobody runs with an idea like this and, like myself, just say "no way, we might as well not even think about it or discuss it." To me it's kinda like saying, "Man, I wish Christmas was tomorrow!" or "Why can't my vacation be THIS week instead of next week!" even though no amount of wishful thinking will that happen.

Also...forgive me if I'm mistaken but...are you miffed at the possibility that somebody else might have this idea and get credit for it? There have actually been several threads already of people asking for the beta to be extended or reopened or something like that so...this is not the first of those :)

Again...I'm not trying to degrade you or tease, and I apologize if that is the tone that comes across...as my signature says I am trying to be the "champion of civility" here, meaning that while I disagree with your stance I would like any discussion we have on it to be civil and a simple exchange of ideas :)

same problem. A demo, MP or Horde or Beast or Campaign, would have to be created and then given to MS to authorize.

The other issue, is that Epic is probably not too thrilled with putting out more demo's since the beta was hacked and info was leaked.

I thank you for your civility. No, I was not necessarily implying that I'm the first to have THIS idea. Indeed, I know for a fact that I'm not. I just started ranting on the whole idea topic in general. As I am above average in intelligence (I'm not trying to brag, everyone tells me it's true), I have no difficulty inventing things. But it never fails, less than 2 weeks after I initially have the idea, it is already on infomercials, with an overpriced selling point and a 1800 number and everything.

Sorry, that's the other thing about me: if you get me started, I rant.

But enough of that; I just would like to see people's hypothetical opinions, regardless of the practicality of the question. Apparently I didn't make that clear enough in the main post.

oh yeah and beta was dull and boring, alot better then the previous gears games but nonetheless dull and boring.

You've only been here for a month and have 1,400 posts. You are so annoying, the beta was amazing. Sure it lacked extra maps and gametypes, but it was a lot more fun than any other shooter out right now. How do I block this kid? I'm getting sick of looking at his posts. He's obviously not a core Gears fan, when he asks for a Prestige system for the ranking.

On Topic: I really wouldn't like to play the beta again. I'd rather them do a Horde beta, would be awesome and loads of fun.

Well...I guess if we're taking practicality out of the equation...you bet your a$$ I want to play some more GoW3! But I guess one thing about ME is that I can't just put practicality aside and given that we did have the beta, given the logistical hurdles Epic would have to jump over and the fact that (as Tao said) the beta was hacked and the game was leaked, I just know that it's impossible, so it's hard to dive any further into the topic, ya know? I want to be able to fly, but I'm not waking up tomorrow morning with wings on my back lol

At the same time though, as much as waiting sucks, I'm pretty happy that I won't have had a taste of everything before the game comes out. I mean...if there was a horde demo out right now, I'd be playing it, but at the same time I'm not clamoring for it because I want some stuff to be new when the game releases. That's the same reason I don't want to try beast mode until the game comes out...I want it to be new. And that's also why I'm glad that the beta only had a few maps in it.

Imagine that the beta was everything GoW3 was going to be...MP, beast, horde 2.0, even part of the campaign. Most of us would have played the crap out of it, to a point where, once September 20th comes around, we'll pop in the games and be like "ummm...I've already played this." The game would feel old the second it's out of the package.

So...I guess if you're looking to discuss this topic and get beyond a response of "forget it, it won't happen" then...I guess this is the best I can do haha

Final production phases, nothing is coming out till Sept 20. Beta lasted a month, long enough to get a feel for what needed to be tweaked so there wasn't a repeat of gears 2. And it sure as hell wasn't boring!!!

only reason why i voted yes is becuase the beta was entirely fun.

i only raged a little whereas in gears 2 its constant :P

my xbox live friend has the leaked copy but he says its not the same


Who else here is tired of waiting for the final release? I say, when the game goes gold (any day now), put out a Gears 3 MP demo. It can be the same weapons/maps/skins as the beta, and it doesn't need any additions-it doesn't even need some in-game unlock. Just copypasta the beta, slap a different front-end on it, and let us tear each other apart! Please Epic, do it for the fans, we're dying here.

Post if you want it too, we need all the voices possible for Epic to see this.


EDIT: Before you post your comment without hindsight, I would like to refer you to my page 5 post. If you're not here to troll, you'll understand why.

Also, this is HYPOTHETICAL. Before you say it can't be done, or that it already was, I just want to see what you would prefer, HYPOTHETICALLY.

Alright, the general consensus is boo-****ing-hoo, wait for the full thing. I get that. And I DO remember the beta. I got into it with Bulletstorm. But think of it this way:

If not for the fact that only a few of us (apparently) want more time with the game befre it comes out, then it (whatever IT is) could be a chance for people new to Gears to try the game before they make the decision to jump in. As it stands, the only real Newbie-friendly feature is the casual mode in mp, which goes away after 10 kills and countless deaths.

I get that you guys are saying no. It was just an idea that a few of my friends and I had. You guys don't need to be assholes about it.

The casual play-list will, I believe, stick around until you get to level ten or so. With that said, it has aim-assist among other things. Meaning, a new player will be ready if not already wanting to get into the full game by level eight or nine.

Having the beta come back would be pointless, no matter how you look at it. Its less than a month away at the least. What would be the point in Epic tarnishing the hype with the beta coming out once more? It would be a bad business move and an awful move in general. I'd rather the full game than a beta. With the full game, at least people won't be burned out come the full game. That's why the beta lasted four weeks, roughly one month and not two or three.

No matter how much you love Gears, you WILL be burned out if all we get to do until the 20th is play a restricted and limited version of the game.

I'd rather have a horde demo. I just want to play some gears 3 now.

No, one it'll just be time consuming for Epic and 2 even though I'd say I would rather have it now than wait, all-in-all I would definitely wait :)
