Gears of War 3 Trailer Premieres
If you didn’t play Gears of War back when it came out, you seriously missed out. It was a gritty, messy third person shooter, with seriously awesome gameplay mechanics. Gears of War 2 was an extension of the same theme – more chainsawing unsuspecting enemies, ducking for cover, flanking maneuvers that worked, and best of all, excellent coop first person mechanics. Meeting the dude who voices Dominic at NY Comic Con only made me like it more, because he was the shit.
Well it’s about that time again – Gears of War 3 is set to come out on September 20th, 2011, and Microsoft just released the first trailer. It seems you’ll pick up right where the storyline left off in GoW2, but I couldn’t tell much more than that because I was drowned out by Ozzy and gunfire. Which is just fine.
Watching this trailer now, I do wonder when Gears of War will have to be put to rest. It looks a little tired, and I’m not impressed by the lack of any apparent changes in game play. I’ll still buy it of course, but I think this one might be end of line.
