Baird and Cole focused? I like Cole but nut Baird and class base? Why?
Yes, People Can Fly is Working on Gears of War Judgement [UPDATED]
Baird? Come one now. I liked Baird and Cole throughout the Gears series, but them as the main characters?
As main characters? Dude, they were main characters through half of Gears Of War 3.
Half? More like a third, if that. Though I wish they did take up half of the game. That's basically what I thought they did have planned and it sucked once I soon realised that it was going to be Marcus n co for the rest of the game.
Also I think Baird is ok; it definitely struck me as odd to learn how many dislike him, though he certainly had his moments of complete and utter assholery in Gears 3. He was so infuriatingly sarcastic and passive aggressive towards Cole during his playable segment of the story.
@Napalm: Sam was pretty cool, but I suppose I admittedly liked her mostly because she's basically ''what if Claudia Black existed in the Gears Universe??''
Ah yeah, she was a fucking total babe. So yeah, three characters that are memorable. And Raam. He's pretty memorable.
I just hope People Can Fly have learned that, no, combining synonyms for dick with the word fuck does not equal a story. Fucking Bulletstorm was offensive...offensively stupid. And it totally, completely marred an otherwise awesome game. That and hearing Steve Blum and Jennifer Hale voice your main characters. Like we don't hear them and their lack of range in a billion video games already. Steve Blum makes Nolan North sound like Mel Blanc or Billy West.
People Can Fly working on Gears kind of feels like a waste in a way, though I'm sure this game will be pretty good. I loved Bulletstorm, it's a shame the game's marketing was so dodgy that it made people angry. Maybe the script could have used some restraint, but none of it particularly bothered me, I found it to be an entertaining brand of stupid. I guess anything that reminds some people of the whole "dudebro" thing immediately induces a seething rage as they think back to those times they were stuffed in a locker by their local meathead.
milk the cow, Epic. milk the cow.
Are you new to video games? Name one game that sold a shit ton of copies that didn't have a another after it. Now I will admit this does seem like a "we need to sell one more game before next gen" and PCF are not working on anything so well give them a tried and true franchise why the big boys work on our next gen launch game, but ya gotta make money you can't just have ppl sitting around.
"and Epic Games' public relations bizarrely department dodged any questions of who was making it."
you switched two words there patrick.
Also this news sucks, people can fly deserve better :(
They deserve better? What does that even mean? You mean the same people that made a greatly inferior game when compared to any of the GoW games? Nope.
Man I sure hope this isn't just a fucking gears of war game. I get what gears did for the genre, but I never liked that kind of cover based third person shooter, and, as a fan of people can fly (or a least of Painkiller, which was a while ago, and appreciator if not fan of bulletstorm) im hoping they do something different.
Also besides not liking the style of gameplay gears had the bro shit turned me off too.
Jesus. So many people complaining, saying this is just a cash grab, milking the cow. Guess what? Epic, Microsoft, EA, Activision and all other developers and publishers are in this for the money. It is business baby. I would think that after the 38 Studios debacle, we would all be in agreement that having cash flow stop just to please ones sense of duty or wanting to do what they want regardless of what happens on the business side is dumb. Making money is important to these guys. Gears of War will sell another game. What else is there to think about?
This kinda looks like Baird...
Also, I want to know what Cole and Baird were dicking around with while Marcus was in the Submarine. Those guys fucked off for a good few hours of Gears 3 and then just turned up at the end in a hellicopter having fixed Jack and... er... done some other shit? I don't know.
Oh yeah, btw, spoilers T_______T
