Often viewed as “the most anticipated game of 2011”, Gears of War 3 is set to burst from its emergence hole on September 20th of 2011. I don’t drive a pickup truck, don’t chug beer out of a football helmet, and can spell my own name (on occasion) and guess what haters … I’m a huge Gears fan.. The Gears of War series gets a bad rap for being “another space marine game”, or “digital testosterone”, but I disagree. I’ve played the games, read the novels, and truly believe the Gears of War franchise is a rich and adult science fiction universe. But how does Gears 3 play you ask?
I got to take a look at Trenched this year during PAX: East and was totally blown away. Trenched is a mech-combat game ripe with personality and ample customization. Double Fine is breaking the mold by offering AAA quality games for download at a fraction of the cost of their boxed counterparts. If you haven’t gotten to see Trenched in action, click HERE for some gameplay. If Double Fine keeps dishing out this much quality for a fraction of the price, the industry just may implode and suck itself into a black hole. Take a look at the opening sequence of Trenched and tell me that it doesn’t look amazing!
