As soon as I began to play the original GOW I realized that there was something about the game’s blend of action and tactics that set it apart from all other games in the genre. Over the years I’ve beaten both GOW campaigns with a wide various friends, family, and strangers, and still find the experience to be deeply satisfying. While some of the systems introduced in the original GOW were still in their relative infancy, the overall Gears experience was always spectacular. After playing a lot of Gears 3 over the past week I can honestly say that the Gears 1 and 2 were just an appitizer for the feast that is Gears of War 3.
We don’t often speak “locally” here on Nerd Appropriate, but when something this awesome happens it is hard not to. We have spoken of our friend Jason (boyfriend of frequent guest Amy) on the show before. He plays in a fantastic band called The Pauses. This week their song “Go North” was released on Rock Band 3, yes I’m totally jealous, but I love it! Then, to top it off, the kind folks over at Harmonix wrote a blog about it. So go on over read the blog, leave a comment, tell them that this song is awesome, and most importantly, GO BUY IT!
