Gears of War 3 Launch Party [Event]

Over the last little while Microsoft has been running a competition of the ARG (Alternate Reality Game) type with the final round granting those who had completed the challenges and opportunity to attend a Gears 3 launch party at one of two Canadian locations. The challenges involved puzzle solving, location hunting, meat-gathering and all sorts of other non-sense that lead to a location of a barge docked in the harbour at the north end of Main Street (for us Vancouverites anyways).

Gears of War 3 Gets A Season Pass

With the launch of Gears of War 3 just barely three weeks away, Microsoft and Epic announces their own Season Pass that will be available to purchase alongside with the game's release on September 20th.

Taking a cue from from the likes of L.A. Noire and Mortal Kombat, the Gears of War 3's Season Pass looks to offer gamers an opportunity to pre-order the upcoming DLC at a discounted price. Unlike L.A. Noire and Mortal Kombat Season Pass' reasonable cost, Gears of War 3's Season Pass will be the priciest ever.

A Celeb Voiced Gears of War 3 Multiplayer Skin Is Now Being Given Away For Free! (Good news if you're an Ice-T fan)

Gears of War 3 is easily going to be one of the biggest games to be released this year due to a variety of reasons.  Not only is it supposed to be the last chapter in the current Gears story but the multiplayer mode actually looks fun instead of being a janky mess and as always there’s an abundant amount of violence and gore.  Gears 3 may still be a month away from being released, but gamers can get a little bonus of sorts now since Epic Games is giving away voucher codes for a bonus character skin.

Gears of War 3 Collector's Edition Is Cool But Typically Pricey

It’s a prerequisite at this point that every major game receives a special release SKU that either has cool stuff to justify the $40 bump in price or is so woefully put together that it’s clear the publisher merely wants some easy money at the hands of overzealous fans.  Gears of War 3 is shaping up to be another big game for the Xbox 360 and to celebrate the end of the core Gears trilogy, Microsoft and Epic Games have prepped not just one but two rather cool special release SKUs.

First Impressions: Gears of War 3 Beta

Like most games now a days, there always has to be a sequel. In some cases several. Gears of War definitely fits into that category. With the beta for part three launching today, we find out if the newest instalment is worth something to add to your wish list this year.

Firstly I want to say this is the first time I’ve ever played Gears of War online. However, I’ve heard through several people that the online aspect of the series has fallen short.  Suffering from a case of the lags, it was under much speculation whether or not developer Epic Games could right the wrongs.

Gears of War 3 Multiplayer Beta Info and Box Art Revealed.

Microsoft announced today at the Xbox press event held in San Francisco, new details about the upcoming Epic Games' Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta.

Gamers will be able to participate in the public multiplayer beta starting sometime in mid-April with the assumption that those who got the early access invite that was included with Bulletstorm's Epic Edition along with the exclusive Flaming Lancer will have first crack at it.

Microsoft And Epic Games Finally Announce The Release Date For Gears of War 3

When Microsoft and Epic Games revealed that Gears of War 3 would miss its original release date of Spring 2011 and instead would drop sometime in the Fall/Holiday 2011 schedule, it didn’t go over well with gamers.  The delay in the emergence of Gears 3 wasn’t because Epic Games was behind scheduled and needed a few extra months to polish the game, but instead was because Microsoft wanted to strengthen their back-end 2011 release schedule.

New Gears of War 3 Bullshots...Oops, I Mean Screenshots Are Released

For some reason Gears of War 3 has been hiding in some deep far off cave, far from ready to blast through emergence hole to shock and awe us all.  I guess the lack of any recent Gears 3 media or news can be chalked up to the game being bumped from April to the Holiday 2011 slot at the behest of Microsoft and the powers that be who make such decisions.  It probably won’t make that much of a difference when Gears 3 will be released, aside from gamers having a frown due to not cutting up Locusts’ in two, but at least it appears that we’re going to slowly rec

Mad Catz Announces Gears of War 3 License for Peripherals

If you’ve followed the site over the last year or so, you know that Mad Catz has won us over (a couple of times over) with their modern line-ups of peripherals. Where they were once a pariah in the home-console market, supplying a constant stream of cheap “knock-off controllers” they’ve gone to be the leader in the console world, supplying official materials on behalf of the first-parties like Harmonix; and in the new year Nintendo for the 3DS.
