In what world is 3 1/2 hours of content lengthy? It was crazy that we all accepted it from Modern Warfare the 1st (even I, the cynical one, bought that game for near full price and drooled over the single player).

You're comparing length for a full game (COD) with length for a piece of DLC attached to a game (RAAM's Shadow). 3 1/2 hours is clearly too short for a full game, but for a piece of singleplayer DLC after the full game it's pretty long compared similar offerings.

I'm liking this DLC so far. The atmosphere of Gears 1 was so much better than that of the other two, and I feel like they capitalize on it pretty well here.

Pretty awesome DLC but way too pricy for what it offers.Besides that it is nice variety and goodies.

This is awesome. Gears is awesome.

I'm thinking $15 for 3 hours is too short, Maybe I'm being cheep, it does look really cool though.

I'm not interested unless they include a TMZ weapon skin with the DLC.

RAAM's motha fuckin' shadow, bitches!

Bringin’ back the first of the Gears series. You guys don’t even know how much of a badass RAAM is. You don’t even.

…not until you play RAAM’s shadow. This new DLC is so kickass. Like, could General RAAM get any cooler? Could General RAAM be any more of a BAMF? I don’t think so. AND GOD DAMN THOSE TREMORS ARE SO COOL. I’m really hoping for Epic to make the Seeders, Tremors, RAAM, and Zeta Squad all available in Horde mode or… or BEAST MODE OMG. QAQ Gonna be so awesome!

The 2GB of raw awesome have been downloaded and I’m on my way to ripping people apart with swarms of Kryll.

Cool Story Bro :)

@Rox360: I assume you haven't even seen the skin in question, have you? It's a green digital camo skin that is nothing but... green digital camo. How is that turning people into walking billboards for MI4?

Also, no shit Epic is getting paid for it. This isn't the first time they've had promotional DLC. For Gears 1, the first map pack was free because it was sponsored by the Discovery Channel. By using those maps, did that make me a walking billboard for them?

They missed the best part about playing as Raam; when dudes are down on the ground you can CUT OFF THEIR FUCKIN HEADS.

@Jeff what exactly do you want with promotional content? It's not like it's asking you to go to a website and link your Facebook account or some shit. It's a free gun skin you get for playing through the campaign on insane. Would you rather be paying for it?

The problem is that your awesome in-game reward for completing a difficult challenge does nothing more than turn you into a walking billboard to advertise a completely unrelated product. You know Epic gets paid for the promotional content, right? It's a really clever scheme. I presume they're using the skin as a "reward" for completing a difficult challenge because they know their main demographic consists of highly competitive gamers. If you get that skin, you're going to use it so that you can display your skills to the world. Look at something like Halo 3. Almost everyone who unlocked the Hayabusa armor used it like crazy, because it felt exclusive. And by doing that in Gears, you're wandering around promoting another product, which Epic are getting paid for. I bet they figured they'd get much better exposure this way than if they included it for free, or had a less interesting hoop to make the player jump through to get it... That way people wouldn't feel obliged to show it off once they unlocked it.

How the hell do they remember all this shit? I've played all three Gears of War and I don't remember a Raam or Thai or Kim. Also, having the DLC be filled with more GoW3 style swarms of dudes, doesn't that leave one with the question "why wouldn't those missions have been in Gears of War 1"? I mean, basically, it's saying "this much more interesting and exciting battle happened, but we didn't show it to you"...? Also, glad they clarified what the fuck "Ghost Protocol" was. When I checked into GoW a couple days ago, I saw that promotion going on and I was like "what the fuck is Ghost Protocol?". I just assumed it was some Tom Clancy game. As for this DLC. Meh. I'm kind of regretting the season pass. I only really care about the multiplayer at this point (I don't need "more campaign"). . . and not even really the multiplayer. I'll play this, but only so the pass wasn't an entire waste. It's going to be like eating the peas on my plate, when I'd rather just throw them away.

I honestly don't remember Thai and I can kinda see how you wouldn't remember Kim but Raam? He was a badass and the final boss. Don't know where all this "that boss was excruciating!" stuff is coming from, I beat the first game on the hardcore or whatever difficulty and don't remember Raam being too much of an issue. He was also a much more memorable boss than Skaar who I thought was completely forgettable.

The end of this video was the best part with the TMZ stuff lol

Posted by zymase

Finished this today - very happy with the mileage I've gotten out of Gears 3. Disappointed that Jeff didn't get RAAM's superfuckingawesome execution during the QL; I was excited to hear their reaction.

Posted by wumbo3000

This looks pretty fucking awesome. The first Gears of War is still my favorite of my series by far so I'm really excited to play this.

Posted by rts375

I was going to buy until I found out there are no new maps.

I'm guessing because the DLC takes place before Gears 1 (and serves as backstory for Jace) and has none of the Delta Squad guys in it... so, why would that be in the first game?

Posted by HatKing

The Raam parts (bad pun to be worked here) get kind of stale quick. He has only the two moves and you basically repeat the same objective five or six times. I would have liked to see more variation with him. Perhaps a part where you could ride his giant reaper(?) thing.

Posted by Romination

That fire looks amazing at the beginning, and it makes me cry from beauty.

Hey, it's Dr. Chakwas commanding the Locust. I was unaware.

Posted by Dallas_Raines

@Branthog:

How could you not remember RAAM? That guy was an excruciating final boss. Also, Tai killed himself with a shotgun, that's pretty memorable.

Posted by Robopengy

What a genius marketing ploy by TMZ! Rips like what Jack does to doors! Guns like Marcus has!

Okay I'm gonna have to pick this up tomorrow. Looks awesome.

Holy shit

Edited by thebigJ_A

I thought kryll could only go out in the dark. Isn't that the whole point of them? Wasn't the mechanic in the first game staying in the light? Didn't whats-his-face say like 30 seconds before that seeders were inking the sky so kryll could come out?

So why are the kryll on Raam flying around in sunlight?

Also RAAM should enchant that Daedric dagger, and get the 15x backstab perk.

TMZ is so fucking stupid, as is anyone who obsesses about celebrities enough to visit it regularly.

Wait, Kryll hate light right? They even mentioned the Locust are inking the sky to allow the Kryll to kill everyone...RIGHT before Raam comes out of the emergence hole all covered in Kryll...

Yeah from what i remember you killed them via UV turrent.

Maybe the natural UV from the sun isn't strong enough to actually kill them?

Why is all this Gears of War 3 stuff in the way of my TMZ app Quick Look?

Seems like a fun dlc to me. Season pass might actually be worth it if the next 2 are decent as well.
