I know the name's been out for a while and I know it's correct (by U.S. standards), but for some reason seeing the word "Judgment" spelled that way still makes me do a double take....I'm so used to thinking of it as "Judgement"- and no, I don't use "colour" to describe color. :P

My girlfriend and I had the same discussion after seeing the new Judge Dredd trailer.  The word "Judgment" splashed across the screen and we both looked at eachother confused.

DBNO removed from all MP gametypes, no more curb stomps people!   >:(

Hearing that you can't even be locust in MP anymore either, Red vs Blue COG teams instead, shocking if true!

The removal of down-but-not-out will definitely change the way some people play the game, which may or may not be a good thing.

If the Red vs Blue thing is true, they're going to have to lose the grit filter and really amp up the brightness of those colors.  It's hard to tell which team you're on when everything looks grey & brown.

Some bits of info from the recent Epic Podcast:

Confirming that no DBNO means no more Execution, no more Guardian, no more Wingman... This decision was heavily debated within the company, apparently.

DBNO is a barrier to entry for the average player, says Jim. DBNO creates many factors that get in the way of a fluid and faster game experience.

He also said that the argument that DBNO promotes teamwork can easily be turned around, it also discourages teamwork with things like kill stealing and so on. Removing DBNO will allow players to act more like a team.

On the topic of the Locust being removed from MP, he says Epic are aware the fans like to play as the Locust, hence Beast mode, BUT he also says that in MP, the COG are more approachable as characters that players can identify with, hence Blue COG vs Red COG.

Hitbox issues were also cited as a reason to remove the Locust (but it's okay to keep female characters?).

The Locust aren't coming back for MP (outside OverRun) and that's not going to change for release. Having MP be Blue COG vs Red COG makes it a more "streamlined" experience (what?).

As for loadout changes (spawn with one main weapon, pistol and grenade of choice), Jim says that spawning with grenades is a huge gamechanger in Judgment MP and that it conditioned the loadout system (balancing?). Says it's good for variety, teamwork, etc. The maps in Judgment play very differently (more vertical, maze-like).

Judgment MP changes in a nutshell: Epic don't want players to spend so much time watching/waiting, but to spend more time playing. Map design has to be approachable, easy to understand and navigate, etc.

Some weapons (such as the Sawed-Off) were completely redesigned based on the feedback received from the Judgment beta playtesters.



So no more Guardian, Wingman, Execution, Capture the Leader is likely to be taken out, Warzone is also rumoured to be out (which is madness if true!), no more Locust in MP has now been confirmed, the MP isn't looking too good at the moment!

New info from the recent podcast:

MP modes shipping with Judgment: Overrun, FFA, Domination, and TDM.
There are NO elimination, non-respawn modes.
TDM now counts kills towards a goal; there is no more respawn pool
Overrun has bots, can be played in private.
Overrun has no unannounced classes on either side.
You cannot choose characters for Overrun, only classes (ex: you can't be a Cole engineer).
Ranked and quick are still separate, sound unchanged.
You can tag people with any type of grenade; its effect is unchanged (ex: beacon grenade tagged on opponent still just spots)
You can destroy and jump through windows.
Mantle kick is unchanged.
Ammo boxes replenish grenades.
(Supposedly) Every starting weapon has a very specific role, is ineffective out of that role, and has a weakness.

Any word on if they're shifting the story's focus back to Marcus Fenix?

Every ad I've seen of the game over the past month has had that adorable Marcus puss all over it.  I'm guessing it's just marketing to appeal to what people are familiar with, but I'm partially offended on Baird's behalf.

Nope, not much has been mentioned about the story, no doubt there'll be some mention of Marcus somewhere, maybe even a cameo.

No Limited Edition for Gears Judgment

Raczilla's post (Epic Forums)

Hey guys,

I know this is a popular topic right now and want to share with you that we’re not creating a formal Limited Edition of Judgment. It's true that there are retail partners around the globe who are creating their own unique offerings. That's why you're seeing things like this Special Edition in Australia. https://ebgames.com.au/xbox360-15429...ition-Xbox-360

Since retailers are doing this on their own, there's no a master list or schedule I can share with everyone. The best bet is to ask with your local retailer as they will have the most up to date information.

I know some of you will be bummed about the news of no LE, but we do want to share this with you so you can make the best decision about where and how you might like to order Judgment.

Feel free to continue to use this thread to discuss this topic.

Thanks!
