Gears of War : PC Version

Let's take a look on the minimum requirement for this Gears of War first...

Minimum system requirements:

  • OS: Windows XP or Windows Vista
  • Processor: Intel 2.4 GHz or AMD 2.0 GHz or higher
  • HDD space: 12 GB
  • Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 6600 or ATI X700 or higher
  • Online multiplayer: Broadband Internet connection and Games for Windows LIVE Silver Membership (included)

Yes! You need to at least have these minimum requirements so that you will not be lagging all the way in games or either graphic distortion. Well , my previous entry did showed newly bought CPUs so it can cope with all the specs above but just differently.

Usually, you might still face some minor bug issues such as :
1. Gears of War's cutscenes might restart your PC or ended up being black screen.
2. Audios will not function properly through co-op mode.
3. Even if your specs are good, there are things that the game is not compatible with.

So in order to get a solution to the above issues,
1. Do restart CPU and play the game again. It'll work fine.
2. Update sound drivers and test your sound volume again.
3. Depending on what 3D cards your using, ATI or Geforce series need to have some update from the drivers if possible.

Now straight to the Gears of War's screenshot taken through gameplay.

Cover yourself and aim the Locust!

Seeder. Large bug-creatures that sent ultra-sonic waves into the air to block
radio frequencies. Only the Hammer of Dawn can bring one down.

As you see, i just burned a Seeder with Hammer of Dawn. Nice view isn't it?
