Haha.  
 
Gears of War 2 was pretty fun.  Beyond having one of the worst final bosses ever.

Haha, that was just a teensy bit predictable wasn't it?

Not surprised, yet excited. It's awesome.

Well, someone is going to loose their job. 
I look forward to playing Gears 3, although I thought this would've been a quadrilogy instead of the usual trilogies we're usually treated to.

I'm playing through the first one atm, I think Uncharted 2 spoiled me on cover-based TPS's because I'm not enjoying it.
 
So not really excited

Underwater combat? Mech suits? way to make me not interested. They need to convince me to want this.

I had heard it was going to be a tetralogy, too... maybe they'll make a prequel after Gears 3?

I can confirm this. GoW needs to copy Uncharted's cover system. GoW is way too sticky and having to take cover before mantling is just retarded along with "wall-bouncing" in multiplayer.
 
Glad to hear it's ending. Gives hope to a reboot in a chainsaw-bayonet world where men aren't roided up.

PC please!

I still need to play the second Gears. I like the first one, but I don't think it's that amazing.

AHH, COME ON!

Cool, their development cycle is going to be longer.  Working multiplayer day one, maybe?  Already a lot of other stuff coming out this year anyways.  5 months away from Reach and COD7 is a pretty good move.

Damn, April. Really thought it would be the standard October/November release this year. Still if it means a better game then, i'll allow them the extra time ;). Gears is still probably my favourite shooter, even over the godly MW2, not that they can be directly compared.

NICE.

Are they still gonna run around like they have their Super Depends full of poop?  Can't wait!

#21 Posted by AndrewB (7618 posts) -

I was right, and I was wrong. Right that the game would be announced early this year (though I thought it would be a big E3 reveal), wrong that it would be coming out any time this year. I'm sure they really wanted to spread around the releases, and Halo Reach is their game in the spotlight right now. 
 
I'm also very doubtful that I'll buy this game, which is ironic considering Gears of War was the game that pushed me into buying an Xbox 360.

Bright vivid colours?
 
That sounds interesting.

#23 Posted by s7evn (1072 posts) -

Good News, but since it was a trilogy from the start it was easy to see this coming. Underwater combat could be promising, and then mech suits-maybe a spin off from Lost Planet?

#24 Posted by Atomasist (2818 posts) -

Can't wait.

That sure took the wind out of Cliff's sails.

Oh my goodness!  Maybe this time around the Co-op achievement will work (for me)!

#27 Posted by blaze503 (189 posts) -

YES i am so glad i will have a 360 in the house next year.

#28 Posted by Fripplebubby (1027 posts) -

I loved Gears 1, but I haven't played Gears 2 because Epic is afraid of PC pirates. Damn. Of course, if it did come out on PC, I may or may not pirate it anyway, so I guess i'm really the problem (I don't mean that, I buy my games).

In ten years you'll all be old enough to understand publicity.  
 
Oh to be young again...
