As the title suggest, what are you excited for? I'm really pumped for the multiplayer, and the campaign. Not really a fan of Horde Mode, but i will give it a try.
What are you excited for in Gears 3?
Pretty much everything.
Single player will be great. 4 Player coop and the series finale.
The new horde might be pretty fun, something to do every once in a while, same as Beast.
But the multiplayer, ohhhh the multiplayer. I'm convinced it's going to be the best multiplayer game i've played in a long time (judging by the beta).
They're fixing pretty much everything i didn't like about gears 2 multiplayer, and adding so much great stuff. Rifles will be useful. There will be a greater variety of weapons and they will be VIABLE in different situations Anyone can have their own preference and style for spawn weapons. The host issues and bad lag/bullets not going where you tell them will be gone. Movement is refined, where you wont be hopping constantly to go faster than simply sprinting. Meatshields are nerfed. There are more ways to get kills and more satisfying ways to get kills and humiliate the enemy like punching people in the face for 10+ seconds. There are executions for every weapon. The chainsaw is actually useful. Grenades are more balanced.
The beta just blew me away. But i'm especially looking forward to playing gametypes without respawns. That was the main thing i didn't get from the beta, because I enjoy the tension of having one life per round and the greater emphasis on strategy that comes from warzone and execution (and I don't like people getting lucky and spawning behind me).
I fully anticipate it to be my GOTY and keep me entertained for a looooong time.
Campaign mostly. I want to know how it ends.Given Epic's past record in mediocre story lines I won't be expecting something...Well...Epic. I say it's going to end up mostly along the lines on how Halo 3 ended. Well, minus Marcus being frozen and sent off to a galaxy far far away.
Anyways, back on topic. The thing I am most excited for is that this time I won't drop sixty unnecessary bucks on it.
Horde 2.0 - I love the idea of building fortifications using the money earned from kills. Now, I must say that in every game I own except for a few, the single player campaign ALWAYS takes priority over everything else on the disc. So even though Horde 2.0 wins it, the single player campaign is a cunt hair below Horde 2.0.
