You're gonna lose that foot: Here's the Gears of War 4 box art

Cover art posts are usually boring, but this one's straight-up dangerous. The trench foot is an underrated concern in today's Apple Watch-wearing, Uber-riding society. But, stand in a puddle too long? Lop it off, doc. Those dogs ain't barki...

Gears of War 4 hitting Xbox One on October 11 worldwide

Earlier this year we heard about a vague bump in Gears of War 4's release window, from holiday 2016 to fall 2016. Today we have some more specificity: Gears of War 4 is releasing on October 11 of this year. For those unwilling and/or incapa...

Gears of War 4 will have split-screen for all game modes

One of the earmarks of Xbox's biggest shooters is the inclusion of local cooperative play. Both Halo and Gears of War have had split-screen options tracing all the way back to their respective franchise's origins. Developer 343 In...

Gears of War lead Rod Fergusson has a good take about stories in shooters

Shooters, historically, have had a tough time telling good and coherent stories. It's a video game genre in which, no matter what goes into the narrative, the audience expects to continually kill something. That sort of action might make fo...

Gears of War 4 proves Marcus Fenix actually had sex

You might think late-game John Travolta lookalike and longtime Gears of War star Marcus Fenix never made it to pound town on account of being a ghastly, thick-necked meathead, but Fenix did indeed get his dick wet, free of protection, proba...

 
Gears of War PC
We already covered Gears of War: Ultimate Edition at length in Brett's wonderful review, but surprise -- it's coming out on PC too this month! Well, sort of. If you can call Windows 10 "PC," which a lot of you probably won't. There's no Steam support here, just you and the Windows OS. And a decent port.    read

It's the last day to guarantee yourself access to the Gears of War 4 beta

The tacked-on final day of February is proving to be a stressful one. It's a day of last chances, like in the event of the discounted Fallout 4 season pass. There's a similar urgency with regard to one of Xbox's biggest properties. Tod...

The Gears of War remaster might be on PC very soon

Like most publishers, Microsoft took the advent of new consoles as an opportunity to gussy up some old titles and resell them. None of them may have been more high-profile than last summer's Gears of War Ultimate Edition. It was said to be ...

We might get Gears of War 4 a little sooner than anticipated

There's a good chance that we'll be fragging Locusts and rolling into chest-high walls a bit earlier this year than we thought. Microsoft has stealthily moved the launch window for Gears of War 4 up by a month or two. As reported by Ga...

Gears of War is twice as efficient this weekend
