Gears of War 3 – What Needs To Be Done

April 18, 2010

2006 saw the launch of one of the finest third person shooters I have ever had the good fortune to play: Gears of War. It has led the way for practically all third person shooters of this generation with its extremely refined cover system and really weighty mechanics. It all seemed to come together brilliantly. There was pretty much no story but it had atmosphere and is quite possibly the best excuse to run around shooting the shit out of everything I’ve ever played. Read the rest of this entry ?


Gears of War 3 Round Up

April 14, 2010

You’ve probably already heard about Gears of War 3 being announced and I really should have posted about it earlier but some unfortunate events prevented me from doing so. Instead, I’ve decided to round up as much information on the game as possible all in one big post.

First of all we have the above trailer which was shown last night on the Jimmy Fallon show. The melancholy, acoustic music (Heron Blue by Sun Kil Moon if you’re interested) used in the trailer is a common trait with the series as both the previous installments have shown footage alongside emotional music. What do we actually see in the Ashes to Ashes trailer, though? Read the rest of this entry ?


Bleszinski’s Big Reveal Now Next Week

April 8, 2010

Cliff Bleszinski, of Epic Games, was set to reveal a new game on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show tonight but has now been pushed forward to Monday due to a scheduling conflict. I was actually looking forward to this reveal but thanks to the infamous Justin Bieber (I’ll keep things simple and just say I’m not a fan), who will be on the show tonight, us gamers will have to wait. This was revealed by a producer of the show via Twitter.

Of course, Cliff has said that it’s all for the benefit of the reveal and will allow it to be more polished when it is shown (Via Twitter):

“As much as I’d like to start a fight with @justinbieber the truth of the matter is that we wanted to take a couple more days to polish what we’re showing. Sorry all, appreciate your patience!”

He also stated that “You’ll like what you see” which will hopefully make you feel better about the delay of the reveal. There isn’t much speculation about what this reveal could be because everybody thinks it will be Gears of War 3, which is highly likely. However, there’s a possibilty it could involve Shadow Complex which would be a nice surprise. Either way, we’ll find out on Monday (Assuming that somebody doesn’t replace him).


First Gears Of War 3 Character, Screenshots Revealed?

April 1, 2010

Despite not being officially announced, Gears of War 3 made it’s way onto the front cover of Electronic Gaming Monthly suggesting that the game is in fact, in development. This isn’t much of a shock though. One problem with this reveal though was a lack of information; with no details being released until the magazine launches. However, we just happen to have some screenshots that may make the waiting slightly easier.

We can’t confirm that this is actually Gears of War 3 but it shares an uncanny resemblance to the series. It is difficult to get a proper look at the game from the following images though, but it does reveal a new character who makes for an interesting design choice. Screenshots are after the jump.
