Gears of War 3
Well, as it gets a little closer to gears 3 i just wanna take a couple minutes to talk about some of the things we can expect to see when this beast of a game comes out. There's going to be a few multiplayer maps, a little talk about the campaign, and some tidbits of info if you want to check it out.
Lets start off with the campaign and what i have found out about it. the beginning of the game starts 18 months after gears 2 and the gears cleared a raven nest out in a ship called sovereign that was made into a floating town. the governments had all broken down the president of San Jacinto comes back from being missing to give Marcus a data disk of Adam Fenix saying he has a way to save the planet. then you do the campaign like all the others ;).
The multiplayer in this gears is a lot better than it was in gears 1 and 2. When i played the beta there was only lag, but that was playing with people who had a shitty connection to the match. the weapons and combat is much of like the first, but it still has the duels with the chainsaw. Some of the new weapons are the retro lancer, sawed-off shotgun, the digger launcher, the one shot, incendiary grenade, and the multi-turret.
The new weapons are pretty awesome like the one shot, it's a sniper that is a heavy weapon that needs to be deployed and will, as the name implies, kill the enemy in one shot, multiple if you're lucky.
The incendiary grenade is basically a Molotov cocktail and catches a few people at a time if they're in a
group.the digger launcher is definitely one of the rage quit weapons in my opinion. it fires a creature into the ground towards the enemy and if you get hit by it your head explodes.
The multiplayer as i said before is pretty sweet and has some new maps one from the first gears which is gridlock and the new ones are thrashball, overpass, old town, mercy, checkout, and trenches.
the rest you'll have to check out yourselves sadly, seeing as how a 2 day road trip takes a lot out of a person if you did what we did.
