  • Gears of War 3 Delayed Till Holidays 2011

    That’s the sound of many, many Xbox 360 gamers shouting unintelligible nonsense upon hearing the news that Gears of War 3 has been delayed from April, 2011 to the holiday season of 2011. Oh dear. Read More

  • Gears of War PC mass breakage

    If you’re one of the few people that hasn’t played and beaten the first Gears of War (I’m looking at you, self), you may have to wait a little longer if you get the hankering to do so on the PC. The game’s executable included a provision for online cheat detection, which relied on digital signatures that recently expired. EPIC has an ugly fix (reminiscent of the… Read More

  • And now Epic Games denies that Gears of War 3 is in development

    Well! So Epic Games has denied, in the harshest terms, that it has already started working on Gears of War 3. “Total nonsense,” said Epic’s Mark Rein. Fair enough, sir. Fair enough. The rumor, which said that the game would be out by Christmas 2010 and have five-player co-op, originally started in the latest issue of EGM, no doubt a stunt to keep the magazine’s name… Read More

  • Um rumor: Hará Gears of War 3 em 2010

    Boas noticias, todo o mundo! Hará outro Gears of War para natal 2010. O nome? Não sei, provavlemente Gears of War 3, ou algo assim. Será o mismo jogo que você jogou em noviembro 2008 (e noviembro 2006): armas grandes estúpidas, soldados que não têm uma educação, e extraterrestres que nos querem matar. Esta informação é de EGM, a revista de videojogos que ja não cerrou. Também só… Read More

  • Grains of War will curb stomp your appetite Perhaps I’m a cynic, but I really expected this Gears of War parody spot, made by the folks on G4’s X-Play, to suck something fierce. Then Cole Train dumped cereal all over his face, and my worries drifted away. Read More

  • Gears fans rejoice: someone has mated a real rifle to a real chainsaw

    No nerf Lancer here. No concept gun, no foam rubber. Just an AR-15 with a chainsaw bayonet. I’m not sure what else to put here; more words would only subtract from the sublime beauty of this “firearm mounted anti-zombie device.” Although: I’ve just bought a copy of World War Z and I’m thinking they could have used a few of these things in the first stand at… Read More

  • Spoiler Alert: Leaked GoW2 boss battle makes me a little scared, excited

    In what seems to be a Polish version of GoW2 which, as we know, leaked like a sieve all over the Internets last week, we find Marcus facing the final boss battle on charming craft in what looks like the heart of Old World Venice. Don’t watch this if you’re like my buddy Rick who can’t stand to have his gaming experience spoiled but it does make us all excited to go out… Read More

  • 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

The re-release includes maps from all those map packs and little extras from Gears of War 2. June 24, $40 for the Xbox 360 version, $30 for the PC.

  • 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

  • Will Microsoft roll up Epic into its game developer katamari?

    There are rumblings to this effect from an assistant editor at GamePro. Microsoft seems to have made a couple billion bucks from the Halo franchise after snapping up Bungie all those years ago, and with the success of Gears of War and the promise of a sequel, it seems like it would be an excellent move. This Travis Moses guy thinks that MS will make a move this summer to the tune of a… Read More
