Video Awesomeness: Gears of War Edition


To cel­e­brate the upcom­ing release of Gears of War 3 I thought I’d show some videos from one of the 360’s defin­ing series: Gears of War! Now any­one who knows me has heard my utter con­tempt for Gears of War 2 mul­ti­play­er and if I play it I loud­ly voice my frus­tra­tion and dis­con­tent for the mechan­ics in it!!!! Now, that said I do love the cam­paign, the sto­ry is tru­ly “Epic” in every mean­ing of the word and the graph­ics have always screamed NEXT-GEN. So I have high hopes for the 3rd install­ment in the series and judg­ing by the Beta I’m think­ing I’ll get my wish….maybe.
Gears of War was released by Epic back on “Emer­gence Day” Novem­ber 7, 2006 the day when on the plan­et Sera, 14 years after the end of the Pen­du­lum Wars (War between the var­i­ous fac­tions of humans for con­trol of Imul­sion a high­ly desired pow­er source buried deep with­in the plan­ets crust), A new threat to human­i­ty emerged to plot its demise, the Locusts. The sur­viv­ing gov­ern­ments joined togeth­er to form the Coali­tion of Ordered Gov­ern­ments or COG for short, to fight off this new ene­my from deep with­in the bowls of Sera.
This is where Mar­cus Fenix comes in…..

After a Dev­as­tat­ing blow to the Locust horde at the end of Gears of War, they come back with a vengeance in Gears of War 2 reveal­ing that the horde has a Queen direct­ing all the move­ments against human­i­ty.

Now Mar­cus and Dom of Delta squad must go deep into Sera to find what has destroyed all the cities on the sur­face save one Jac­in­to. The sto­ry for this install­ment was tru­ly dra­mat­ic show­ing the hor­rors of war and what some do to save the ones they love….

At the end of Gears 2 human­i­ty thought they had won, that the war was tru­ly over but they only found anoth­er ene­my that was infect­ing the Locusts and want­ed every­thing to die, The Lam­bent. When this was dis­cov­ered the sur­viv­ing humans retreat­ed yet again to an island thought to be safe from the Locusts and the Lambent….So this is where Gears of War 3 begins…

Gears 3 shows that no one can sit idly by while oth­ers defend them in this the “final” install­ment every­one must pick up a Lancer and fight! This trail­er is tru­ly FAN­tas­tic being made by Fans and not Epic it real­ly pulls some emo­tion out of you

Now this final Video screams BAD ASS with the immor­tal Black Sabbath’s War Pigs dri­ving home the desire to play this damn game!!!

Now if I ever meet you Cliff Bleszin­s­ki I would love to shake your hand for the awe­some­ness that is Gears of War then punch you square in the fore­head for nev­er fix­ing the mul­ti­play­er in Gears 2! Ahhh if only, here’s some mul­ti­play­er game­play footage from the beta…
