WTF!!

That was a nasty point blank shotgun Drift, in the first vid, that was the sawed shotgun I presume, sounds and looks nasty and awesome.

Lancer seems that have some cool power in it but I think in bursts get better results.

Thanks for the vids man.

Graphically for an online game that looks great, cant wait to see how good single player is looking.

100$ it will be unplayable again after 2 monts cauz the community will discover one glitch after another and will even find ways to reproduce "fixed" glitched from Gears 1 and 2.


I'm more interested in campaign and horde mode + the new beast mode.

looks amazing, especially the more vibrant illumination.

I think if this game has the same type of Bulletstorm lighting like in the videos seems like it it will look beautifull, it already looks amazing in this MP vids, I can't imagine how will look in SP.

Bulletstorm lighting methiod is very nice.

Bulletstorm and crysis2 Lighting method is the same Both of them use volumetric lighting.

Yes exactly, I love that kind of lighting, all games should use it forever!1

personally, i think this game should have ended with the second game. first one was great because it really set a new standard for graphics and third person shooters on consoles, but tons of shooters have came out since the first gears and have done much better. the second one was good, not great, and maybe this will be fun to, but i just really lost interest in these games.

Yeah I see what you're saying, I mean it's not as impressive looking or playing as Gears 1 was for it's time, but I'm still really looking forwards to Gears 3. It's one of the only games I'm looking to purchase for my 360 in the near future, MS has really focused too much on that goddamn casual magnet: The Kinect :(

I disagree; Gears 2 blew Gears 1 out of the water really, despite its (mostly online-based) flaws. I'm sure this will have the same effect.

I was able to get a free Gears Of War 3 beta key a few minutes ago thanks to stumbling across some random giveaway blog... So mad that I missed the first giveaway. =/

I'm not entirely sure they have any more keys left, but if you want to try your hand in getting a free key the site is here:

I'd love to see that but everyone is using the Retro Lancer. It's clearly the best starter gun and makes the shotgun obsolete as soon as you aren't shooting point blank.

    KORNdog @AndreasZ94: i know right, and the fact its a scrub bar. Not set choices just makes it so cool looking. It's like a time lapse without the waiting around. Lol. (16 minutes ago)

    AndreasZ94 @KORNdog: The option to change the time of day in photo mode is awesome (17 minutes ago)

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: i dont think i would buy styx full price. i liked the first as a freebie. but £40 i dunno. the sequel still seems to have a lot of performance issues, and looks to be PS4 footage. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I see. Well I'll definitely be picking it up and probably Styx 2 too. New video is great. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog might pick it up later. it's hard to find time between PS4 and PSVR. but if there is a break in the releases i'll probably try it. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: nah. not a fan. wind waker was the only ones i've legitimately enjoyed. but even that outstayed it's welcome. (2 Hours ago)
