If you're reading this, chances are that you can understand it. So we've established that you can read, but do you really want to if you don't have to? Here's a good reason to crack a book: Gears of Wars: The Pendelum Wars - The Battle of Aspho Fields.
If your brain isn't tired out from reading that long title, you might want to check out this upcoming novel. A prequel to Epic's massive Xbox 360 and PC hit, the title will build on the backstories of the characters you've come to know and love. This is perfect for those of us who yelled "WHAT THE F**K ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?" at the screen everytime the game's characters mentioned Aspho Fields.
Penned by former games journalist Steven Kent, the book should be out this August. Perfect timing -- that's a month or two before Gears of War 2 hits shelves, right? Maybe.
