Gears of War 4 Collector's Edition Strategy GuidePrima’s Guide to Gears of War 4: We received a copy of Prima’s Collector’s Edition Guide to Gears of War 4 to assist us in our review of the title in episode 248. Included in the hardcover collector’s edition guide were replica C.O.G. tags, exclusive tracks from the game soundtrack, as well as codes for in-game DLC (I ended up getting a Commando Hoffman skin!). If you’re looking for an in-depth guide to Gears of War 4, complete with loads of background lore about the game’s new cast, as well as the location of all the hidden items and collectibles, then this guide is highly suggested.

Hi, I’m one of the founders of Nerd Appropriate and the Rated NA podcast. I like good and bad sci-fi films/tv, synthesizers, and the retrofuture. I am primarily an Xbox gamer, but also do some PC and Switch gaming as well. By day, I am a research scientist, mostly in topics related to human-computer interaction and user experience. Before all of this, fellow NA co-founder Matt and I played music together in various bands. I also used to make "comedy" videos for my high school morning news program before there was a place to post them online. Favorite Star Wars character? Admiral Ackbar. Best Bond era? Timothy Dalton (Craig a close second). Top 3 games? Let's go with System Shock 2, A Link to the Past, and Super Castlevania IV. Thanks for being a part of this labor of nerdy love with us.
