Gears of War 3 Beta Preview Video – Dedicated Execution

Gears Of War’s first two entries contained memorable single player and co-op modes that few other games could touch.

The online multiplayer for both left a lot to be desired, being riddled with balance problems and lag. Even when they were fixed, many in the community had moved on to other games. Epic is making a huge effort to insure Gears Of War 3 ships with a great multiplayer out of the box with an actual beta test this time around.

The unspoken truth of this preview video is that if they did a beta for Gears 2 as well, it might not have been unplayable shit for the first 2 months after release. Here is hoping Gears 3 might spin a little longer in the disc tray and have an online game worthy of its single player.

Gears of War 3 – “Ashes To Ashes”

Gears of War 3 is one of the worst kept secrets in development, and but even though we all knew it was happening, no one got to see it until now.
After the harrowing escape at the climax of Gears 2, Delta Squad seems to be in even WORSE shape than at the start of the last 2 games. Dom looks like he’s practically given up at this point (or at least, given up shaving). Luckily Marcus, Baird, and Cole are close behind, and Anya has joined the fight on the ground now too. Designer Cliff Bleszinski was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon for the debut, which you can watch here.

Out side of this interview, Cliff confirmed that there will be 4 player co-op for the campaign this round, and that the Lambent will emerge as a third faction fighting both Locust and Human soldiers.

$20 Game of the Week: Gears of War (Xbox 360)

GearsofwarLets turn the clock back to 2006. It was one year into the Xbox 360’s life cycle, and consumers were either stabbing and shooting each other in order to get their hands on the newly released PS3, or lining up for hours to get their hands on a Wii. Meanwhile, Xbox 360 gamers were still waiting the proverbial ‘killer app’ for the system. While games like Oblivion, Fight Night Round 3, and Saints Row did a good job or keeping players tied over, many of them were just higher resolution versions of games on the original Xbox. What gamers really wanted was Halo 3. Meanwhile, Epic had something brand new up its sleeve. Making use of the brand new Unreal 3 graphics engine, a lifelike alternate world, and unique gameplay features, Gears of War was unleashed on the scene, and it redefined the rules of the shooter genre.

Gears Of War 2 Gameplay

I was out of town for the weekend, and imagine my surprise when I caught up with GameTrailers on Spike that the first in game footage of Gears Of War 2 had been released. No short cutscene or render, this is gameplay from the third chapter of the first act called Assault. Gears master and geek pinup Cliffy B introduces the game, which looks great.

Looks great. Can’t wait to play it. The main game of the first Gears was spectacular, and tossing in some new mechanics like using enemies as a shield and chainsaw duels will only make the new one better. Graphics looks the same, but thats hardly a complaint. Delta Squad returns in November.

Gears Of War Figures Revealed

Epic Games masterful horror shooter Gears Of War will make its way to plastic in April with the first wave of action figures.
Shown above are a Locust Drone, protagonist Marcus Fenix, and Augustus “Cole Train” Cole. From NECA, each figure comes with its own weapon and is detailed to faithfully represent the in game characters. The Train is at home on the rails.
More pictures are available at Action Figure Xpress, though you can only order these by the case of 14 right now. Retail prices should land in the $15 to $20 range, and will go nicely against McFarlane’s Halo 3 figures…
