The Gears 3 Beta is over. Sadness ensues. Gears fans will have to wait all the way until September 20th in order to witness the climatic conclusion of Epic’s gory masterpiece. The Beta was a well organized frag fest that offered up very few headaches, and a whole lot of fun. With dedicated servers and an excellent net code, Gears of War 3 was one of the smoothest multiplayer games I’ve ever played. Also, check out the contents of the Gears 3: Collector’s edition… wow
Previews of SWToR, Brink, Gears 3, Shoot Many Robots, FEAR 3 and much more tomfoolery as we wrap up PAX East. Rated NA 19
I’m going to fill you in on a little secret, Nerd Appropriate is run by THREE people all of whom have full time jobs. This means that we run and operate the site in our off hours, and, still have to make time for friends, family, food, and fun. April was a bit of a struggle for us, but we made it through and still managed to provide a sizable chunk of new and exclusive content. There is a ton of stuff in the works for May, but for now, let’s take a look at some of April’s highlights.
The past few days I’ve rushed home from work only to sit in front of the T.V. for hours on end playing the Gears of War 3: Multiplayer Beta. I wasn’t lucky(or popular) enough to get into the friends and family preview last week, but still I did manage to squeeze in a week early due to my purchase of the Bulletstorm “epic” edition. While I did get some hands on time at PAX: East, I didn’t really have a chance to soak up how amazing Gears 3 is really going to be.
Epic, Felicia Day, and the rest of the internet have been giving away early release beta codes all afternoon. Check out this live feed of IGN play-testing the most anticipated game of 2011.
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?
We have good news for you, it’s sooner than you thought. With a release date more unpredictable than an angry Locust, Gears of War 3 will offically launch on September 30th 2011.
Just who are those people in the new Gears of War 3 screenshots?
Few games in recent years have generated as much “buzz” as Epic’s Bulletstorm. Mainly known for their overly aggro marketing campaign we all wondered if Bulletstorm could walk the walk, because it could sure talk the talk.
I originally watched this clip over at Kotaku just to see some new footage of Gears 3, but what I discovered was that this clip was actually a very well produced segment on how the video game industry operates. It also goes into detail on where the major U.S. players reside, how much games really cost to produce as well as the manpower needed to produce a “AAA” title.
Well it's not all silent or anything, but we are using the laptop mic again, so I apologize for the quality (it was a rough week). SO this is about a week or so late, but we are catching up…
Horde mode is a blast, nobody can argue with that. Love or hate Gears of War, horde mode is nothing short of genius. Epic Games continues to award its fans with special events that alter the game-play and make old adventures feel new. This holiday season let us celebrate with the merry sounds of grunting and evisceration, let us celebrate the 12 days of Gearsmas.
