  • Gears of War movie gets financing from Legendary Pictures and New Line

    Legendary Pictures and New Line will supposedly co-finance and co-produce the Gears of War movie. This is good news for fans of the game that would want to see this movie. I still have a bad taste in my month over the whole Halo movie fiasco, so I’m still having trouble believing this will ever be made. Read More

  • Outrage: CliffyB doesn't like the Xbox 360 controller

    CliffyB, Gears of War creator and the coolest guy on Earth this side of John Biggs, doesn’t like the Xbox 360 controller much. In an interview, he compares it to a “spaceship,” what with all those buttons and everything. Simultaneously, he lauds the Wii’s controller, specifically its use in Super Mario Galaxy. Not ever single finger has to be doing something, says Mr. Read More

  • CrunchArcade: Gears of War special edition comes with picture packs, trailers

    New, exciting info on the upcoming special edition of Gears of War for the Xbox 360. The special content is split into two halves, GoW junk and GoW 2 junk. (I use the word “junk” with only the upmost of sincerity.) As far as the GoW</i< stuff goes, gamers can expect picture packs (!), themes (!!), a special message from CliffyB (!!!), and two multiplayer map packs (~!). As… Read More

  • Video: In game advertising pisses off XBL players

    I have no idea if the guy doing all the product pitching works for any of the companies mentioned in any of the videos, but he is freaking hilarious. I can’t stop laughing. The Gatorade video is probably the funniest one of all. I hope companies don’t plan on advertising like this in the future. Maybe the guy was smoking some herb or crack. Read More

  • Gears of War movie done got a script and director

    Gears of War is grinding towards completion. Keep in mind, though, this article does not mention whether the script and director are any good. Hopefully he or she won’t use actual gameplay as part of the film, a la House of the Dead. I’m still playing the PC version of GoW and it looks great, they could probably just have a pro speedrun it (it’d be under 2 hours) and put that… Read More

This Travis Moses guy thinks that MS will make a move this summer to the tune of a… Read More
