For the love of all past Gears games.... PLEASE don't tell this story in "reverse-flashback-narration" for the final game!!! It was derivative, awful, and annoying in Hitman, Black Ops, DA2, and almost every half-baked game or film that it's been used for during the last decade-plus.
All of Gears of War is meant for mentally emotionally underdeveloped babies...sorry but it's true.
But you know what they are doing one thing right. Actually making the two actually interesting characters of the series the main characters in the game. Gold Star Epic!
just how u people agree on this ?? all what xbox do is just give three exclusive games(and arcade games for nothing) and keep reframing them... while they even take money for every tiny bit of their consloe ...just check what sony did ...REAL GAMES ... good service ..etc ...just check this xbox link if u dont believe me http://www.customerservicescoreboard.com/Xbox
Playin as baird in this game is playable...but feels more like a DLC type of game from the franchise....Im a Marcus or Dominic go'err so
This and Halo are now top of the list and I own all 3 consoles. Funny how people like to complain about the two but the PS3 has games like Ratchet which are way too abundunt. Uncharted already has a 4th installment announced and you don't hear anybody complaining. NaughtyDog's new title looks like it didn't deviate much from Uncharted's gameplay either. Reminds me of last gen, how every one of their titles was like Jak. I wouldn't go as far to say that they shouldn't have new exclusives but there's a lot of life left in Gears and Halo.
MS needs more AAA show stopper games so they can release them a little far apart,honestly i love both Gears and Halo madly, The original Gears blew me away and made a X360 beliver (up untill then i had only ever known play stations as the original xbox was never released in botswana) but its totally rediculars to have Gears and Halo headlining MS games ever year
Can we please have a non Gears or Halo year, just 1
To all u haters of gears of war out there, shuuuuuuut uuuuuuuuuuuuuup. Go hate on a different game u pieces of crap.
People that are complaining about the graphics being the same as GoW3 are stupid and ungratefulDo you see how amazingly great and unparalleled Gears3's graphics already are?How the hell do you improve on something that is practically already the best?And give them a chance, guys, it's not like their working on Alienware year model machines, the Xbox360 is like... 7 years old I think. So cut them some damn slack, their just trying to keep their Gears fans healthily fed and satisfied.What game company focuses on only 1 of their fanchises' fan base and gives them special treatment?Besides DICE, and Infinity Ward doesn't count because their just stealing your money. :p
If all the MP is is different VS competitive modes then count me out. The only reason I liked Gears 3 was because there was Beast and Horde (Co-Op). I dislike Versus and Competition on games. I only like working WITH people, not against them. Not only that, half the freaking achievements will be for the competitive crap. I may pass on this game. I fail to see why everyone wants harder difficulty, isn't Insane Difficulty hard enough? I play games for fun, not banging my head against the wall.
Since go3 was delayed a full year to work on multiplayer makes sense that others at epic would work on another project. But still, feels too soon
@Deadly_Nemesis "mentally emotionally underdeveloped babies" So the players are mentally emotional about being underdeveloped babies? Or are they actually emotional about being mentally underdeveloped babies? Or maybe they are just crazy and crying...you know...cause they're babies...No need to be sorry about this comment Deadly_Nemesis! Clearly you have a registered doctorate showing you are able to diagnose gamers with your clinically proven evidence of "mentally emotionally underdeveloped babies syndrome" I'd work on your Gears of War hate comments a bit on paper before you publicly make a fool of yourself. Epic is doing more than one thing right to have such a large fan base, I agree they have done many things that have pissed me off to the bitter ends but in the end the games have been enjoyable and different from anything else in the 3rd person genre. Assuming I'm understanding your sarcasm correctly, i'll add that as for the "actually making the two actually interesting characters" the main ones in the new gears, that's a matter of simple marketing. Who will the fans react to more? Making the games main characters lead by one of the Stranded, or one of the characters with the most outrageous standout personalities? Personally I wish Dizzy had a major role in one of the games. Get a kick out of that guy.
Lol and none of them have progressed or regressed anywhere. So where are they going back to? Are they going to put mad world back in the trailer or something? lol.
@n3w3n Just check what Sony did? Real games AND good service? I don't even have the patience to correct you on those ridiculous comments but I'll leave you with proof you should do your homework before you bash a console while boasting your own preference. Just check THIS link if you don't believe me: http://www.customerservicescoreboard.com/PlayStation
Weird...the system your bashing is actually ranked BETTER than the system you imply has better service and better games. Need I say more?
What story? Bad guys gir we kill them! Oh but they were wronged by us and maybe aren't really ba *punched to the face!*
Marcus: No they're bad guys, bad bad guys, we kill bad guys.
@The_GooBear yea dude its ok ...but just keep repeating the story and gameplay ...same franchise ...that sucks
@The_GooBear PS3 sucks!
What good can be said about it? The graphics sure are nice?
@WARFIGHTER289 dude there r ppl who even h8 GOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! R u f@!#ing serious ??????????????? GOW haters !!!!!!!!!!!!!
you must be a sarcastic genius or a total idiot !!
Gears 2&3 look nice, not good games though. Just more of the same with no substance at all. So you didn't miss out.
@BaDaSSM0nK3yMaN they are only continuing the story.
@DarthLod Challenges Are made for games, even though ya dont like it personally but its considered as a view for gamers to get immensely in the mood...at least thats what i think :p
@DarthLod P*ssy.. gears is a macho game.. go play kirby is u dont like challenges
@DarthLod It's not like there won't be easier difficulties, and no one ever said that there wouldn't be beast/horde modes.
@Tribesmaster Yeah well Everybody plays GOW so go play Galaga or somthin if u dont appreciate a good masterpiece
@Tribesmaster Don't like it? don't play it then, and don't come on here and say this game is boring, ok? another no life hater...
@Tribesmaster slap yourself
@Tribesmaster are YoU saying boring ?????are you mad the gears game are are on of the best shooter games and you are saying boring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!why??????????????????
@n3w3n And by "repeating" the story you mean continuing through Gears 1, to Gears 2, to Gears 3 in a manner of telling ONE stretched out story? I don't think you fully understand the word "repeat". The gameplay hasn't strayed much from the core of the original but that's the reason I assume most people still enjoy the franchise, else they'd play a FPS instead. Gears of War Judgment does seem like they might be milking the franchise but by the looks of things, as The_GooBear said, the PvP beast mode is a different take on the game and looks sick. Although it may not be enough to please everyone, I'm sure they'll still sell a boatload which is their goal anyways. Doubt many agree with me, but I think Gears 3 should've been the end of the franchise as I can see this becoming a sellout-3 titles a year-game such as one that shall remain nameless...*cough* COD...excuse me.
@halo117xbox I've the 360 longer and I do agree that it's better but that's just preference. PS3 still has some badass SP, story-driven games (like uncharted) but anything multiplatform, I'll buy for 360. This game's gonna be sick. PvP beast mode is something I've wanted them to do for a while.
@chilly-chill and they have loads of money to spare
@otto1971 Lol, that reminds me of Baird.
I would believe that if there was a story to be continued.
and even if it were the case how do you continue the story with a prequel?
@QrGmNcShip016 I'm sorry, but I don't think everybody plays GOW. The Gears games are also not even close to being masterpieces. Think what you want though..
@dobasameen Do you get this angry every time someone states an opinion? I shouldn't be surprised, most gears fans do. You sound more hateful than me. Apparently anyone who doesn't like Gears and voices an opinion about it is a no life hater? I can comment on whatever I want sir.
@texastitan123 The whole slap yourself thing is kind of stupid
@texastitan123 I already did after I purchased Gears of War 3
@ali1111111 I never understood why people like these games so much. They are some of the most boring shooters I have ever played. Also, when the only announcements are games like gears of war and call of dutty and halo, it makes e3 boring as hell.You are obviously entitled to your opinion, I just think these games are extremely boring. Making prequel games also just seems like a cash grab.
@Tribesmaster We all have our likes and dislikes........
@Tribesmaster Obviously your bashing it based on YOUR opinion, who else's opinion would you be bashing it based on? Actually not once did I say the game was perfect or even say that because it's gory that makes it good. The "gory" statement was to say the "killing reward" was good, not that it was the one and only thing that makes a game rewarding, once again, missing the point. Your clearly blinded by your constant hatred to listen to any comments that have facts backing them proving you wrong. In other words, common sense. I have done nothing but prove your points to be invalid time and time again yet you insist on making false statements and putting words in my mouth. For someone who specifically doesn't play this game, it's beyond hilarious how much effort you put into bashing it with little to no resources. The point of voicing your opinion is to let others know whether or not a game may or may not be worth buying. Using factual based opinions, not blind hatred towards anything that's found popular. I just get a kick out of the lack of common sense to your comments and that you still blindly back them. By the sounds of things, if your only interest was actually Horde Mode, was that you genuinely sucked at the multiplayer which is really the main attraction to serious multiplayer gamers for this title. Having an opinion and yelling it loudly and proudly may be your right, but you still look and sound ridiculous when you have nothing to back it up but fist shaking, teeth gritting, anger. You should've been done talking about this "crappy game" long ago because your points are lacking everything that makes them credible. Thus ending the conversation since going back and forth with no new content on the opposite end is a bigger waste of time than bashing a game for no reason.
@Maniac_90 3 titles, including this title, is constant enough for me, and anyone who doesn't like, or even hates Gears of War. Add that with all the halos and call of duties, and to me, you just got a bunch of boring shooters being constantly released year after year with nothing new or different. Also, you can make a game as gory and bloody as you want, that's not the only thing that factors in on making a game fun or rewarding. Tribes is also a much older game than Halo, and saying Tribes is not a fast paced game is just stupid, but if you haven't played it I guess that's understandable. I personally get a bigger thrill when I mid air someone in tribes, than I do seeing lots of blood and guts in gears. Seeing as how most of my gaming is on 360, I would like to see a FUN shooter that isn't of gears of war, halo, or call of duty brand. If gears at LEAST had a good story, I would maybe be interested in it, but it doesn't, and since I don't enjoy the game play either, then to me its just another boring Gears of War game. I'm "bashing" the game based on my OPINION of the game, not facts. I said the game felt stiff, it felt unrewarding, and I just didn't enjoy it, and you back it up by saying the game is gory and for that reason alone I should enjoy the game. We don't have to agree to disagree then, I just don't care anymore about this anymore.. You keep thinking gears of war is a perfect game, and I'll keep not playing it, sound fair? I'm done talking about this crappy game.
@Tribesmaster So first off I'm pretty sure we can't agree to disagree when we clearly define words in the English language differently. "releasing gears games constantly"? Pretty sure releasing 3 titles in the run of 6 years is hardly "constant" but as I said you define words much differently than the rest of us. The only concept of constant that could come close is Judgment and that hasn't even been released yet so that doesn't work. I completely understand that some people don't enjoy gears and I have no beef with that. My concern was with the overbearing bashing of the series with no actual facts to back it up. Or no relevant facts for that matter as I would never understand the controls as "sluggish" or unrewarding kill factor since its one of the most gore-intensified games that I've seen...they literally break into pieces, so not sure what you expect of "kill reward". Never played Tribes, saw it played a few times but just reminded me of Halo and didn't come off as fast paced in the slightest, still seemed like a solid game nonetheless. Once again I'll say that my understanding of its popularity is due to the fact that no other game is like it as of now. If that's not enough clarity to understand it then it's really a lost cause. (Realize that "understanding" why people like a game and "liking" them are two very different things. If your going to bash, might as well have facts to back it up).
@Maniac_90 You also said I was all knowing about shooters, which you could say is irrelevant as well. It's also not THAT different when they keep releasing gears games constantly. Sure, its different than shooters I named, but I still find it extremely boring, and people don't seem to understand that not everyone enjoys gears, but they seem to act like everyone should because it's some sort of masterpiece. I also said that horde mode was somewhat different, and I enjoyed it for a little bit. Gears also does have a more fast paced feel, but the controls and stiff feel of the game drags the playability for me. Killing people didn't really feel rewarding to me either. The fastest paced shooter I have played is probably Tribes, which to me is probably the best shooter ever made, but that's obviously my opinion. Maybe "generic" wasn't the right word to use, but it was still boring, and they just didn't feel like an enjoyable or rewarding experience. Overall, I don't really play shooters anymore because they just don't appeal to me anymore, but if other people enjoy Gears, then more power to them. I still don't understand why so many people like the game, and probably never will, because I'm obviously not a fan of the games at all. Anyways, I'm tired of talking about Gears now, so lets just agree to disagree or whatever.
@Tribesmaster Assuming in my mind "popular = good" is way off base, hence "I may not agree or disagree", read a comment thoroughly before making an irrelevant statement. My point was to see what you compared exciting shooters to and why other ones were not so exciting. Your implications were that you seem to have this knowledge of games that surpasses everyone else therefore your bashing of this game is completely backed by something. Which is why I asked your shooter interests. I'll agree completely that Counterstrike and DoD were both great shooters (I think those days are behind us though as it's getting increasingly difficult to be fresh and innovative in a flooded shooter market). I question strongly your need to even come close to another CoD game after MF:2 but thats besides the point. They are completely different than Gears. You wonder why its popular, my understanding is exactly that. It's DIFFERENT. You say its like every generic 3rd person shooter but I haven't found any with as aggressive fast paced multiplayer as Gears tends to have. If you know of some point me in their general direction.
@Maniac_90 Justin Bieber is also very popular and doing quite well, does that mean he is good and I have to like him? No, it doesn't. I find most competitive shooters boring now days. The main shooters I was really into are the Tribes series, Counterstrike, and Day of Defeat. The only shooter I actually play now days is Tribes Ascend. I have also played all the Call of Duties for 360 for about a month or 2, then traded them in. I have played many other random shooters over the years as well. I know in your mind popular = good, but that's not how it works for everyone. I also never said I was all knowing about shooters. I'm sorry if wanting something new and different makes me a bad person.
@Tribesmaster Interesting. The games you listed as boring, though I may not agree or disagree, are the ones that are ranked worldwide as some of the best shooters of the late. So my question is, what shooters do you find ultimately exciting? Just so we know your background of shooter-all-knowingness.
Bland, no substance, little to no narrative but tries to convince us otherwise, 1 dimensional characters. Clunky, stiff frustrating, controls that do not go well with the hectic fast paced gameplay.
Linier railroaded, shooting ranges. Repetitive boring gameplay. bland yawn worthy environments.
There are some reasons for you.
@Muyypotpie Doesn't mean it's not a cash grab. There are also thousands of online games I would rather play instead of Gears multiplayer. I don't really see what makes the multiplayer so special.
@Tribesmaster Gears of War has one of the most unique multiplayers around and they've been planning on doing a prequel for a while now
@cronos809 Call it hate text if you want, but that is my opinion regardless, which I AM entitled to. Also, I didn't actually watch the video, cause I knew it would just look like every other gears of war game. I was searching Gamespot to see if there was actually any interesting games from E3. I ran into this video, posted what I was thinking, and moved on to other videos/articles. Only reason why I'm still here, is because I have the decency to reply. back to people. :)
@Tribesmaster okey >>>that is your OPINION....for me the gears rocks
and horde mode was great!!!!
@ali1111111 That's your opinion obviously, I just don't like the feel of the game, the weapons are boring, the chainsaw is overrated, the story doesn't appeal to me at all, and it just feels like a generic third person shooter to me. The only thing about gears that was mildly interesting to me, was horde mode, which wasn't enough to make me want to keep the game.IMO, making a prequel to gears of war is completely unnecessary. They should just forget about gears of war and make something different and fun, and worth my $60 dollars.
but you sir, are not entitled to your hate text's :P what i don't understand is why people waste the time telling strangers that they don't like this video when you don't have to be here watching it
@Tribesmaster can you pleas tell me why???? what does not you like in them ???????if you don't play shooters games >>>>>>>>well that is another matter....... but gears is almost the best game in shooter's
