And that's exactly why. People who have nothing better to do with their
time than play a game over and over all day long, trying every weird
combnation of actions they can think of, will ineitably find glitches in
When a game sells 4 million copies, there's bound to be a percentage of
those millions of players finding glitches. But the vast majority of us
will never stumble across any of these.
I've played Gears for many, many, many hours, online and off, and the
only glitch I've ever encountered is getting stuck during a chainsaw
rev, unable to move or shoot (multiplayer only.) It's happened twice,
and that's the sum total of my Gears glitching. If one rare and minor
glitch is the price to pay for dozens of hours of incredibly fun gaming,
it's more than worth it.
Sorry Zackman but you're wrong plain and simple.

Epic should "at the very least" fix those bugs. You can't join a game of
Gears online without seeing at least 2 people glitching at any one time in a
game. We spend more time kicking cheaters while playing online than we do
just playing. Most of my "adult" friends stopped playing the game a couple
weeks after it's launch because of all the cheating.
Sales figures are the cause of Epic (and most other developers) not fixing
If the game didn't have such strong sales they would be on over drive fixing
what is broken to entice sales to continue.
I only started this thread because when ever I mention this game has a ton
of glitches people act like I am making it up.
