Gears of War 3

Gears of War 3 has 21 weapon skins to buy at launch

Launch day DLC is a subject that still remains raw among players, and Epic Games is planning to make that never even more sore. The studio has confirmed that twenty-one Gears of War 3 weapon skins will be available to purchase from tonight, letting gamers daub their guns in rainbows, flowers and all manner of silly colors.

It's the net cost of the skins that have truly infuriated players, as it's been deduced that the entire bundle of content will run for 3600 Microsoft Points. Of course, nobody has to buy them all, and nobody's forcing anyone to buy a single skin, but nerds are furious, as the following quote demonstrates:

3600MS POINTS JUST FOR THAT SH*T? FUCK YOU CLIFF BLIZENSKI, YOU F*CKING GREEDY BASTARD. FOR TRYING TO MILK THD SHIT OUT OF GEARS3 3600MS IS PRETTY MUCH AROUND A $100. F*CKING TWAT ASS MOTHERF*CKER

Yeah ... some people are upset. I'd find it annoying if the full game wasn't already robust enough to justify the $60 asking price. Since Gears 3 is already packed with content, I don't see these optional skins being a big deal. Not to mention, most of them look like a detriment to online play. It's going to be a lot easier to spot and shoot the idiot carrying a rainbow in his hands.

This is a PSA: Never trust anyone who doesn't wet their toothpaste before brushing their teeth! Those people are clearly evil and their waifus are probably shit too!

Going back to Gravity Rush, I think I forgot how much I love it. The visuals, the interesting designs, the dreamy music, likable characters, and of course, just floating all over the place like it's no big thing. It blends together so well.

I don't normally bitch about life on the internet, but I need to vent. It's been a REALLY shitty week. Hopefully life's been treating my fellow 'toiders better.

Ursaring is the best pokemon, followed shortly by Meganium. Duh.

Gotta go with Vaporeon as it is absolutely adorable and makes for a great Water-Type. I'd upload a photo, but my internet is being screwy.

Hell yes. Nekro just pulled this from a Pokemon card booster pack. Don't judge me, I find the game to be fun, even if my deck is terrible.

So I decided to tinker around with some assets in Source Filmmaker and make a still image. Kind of a Jurassic Park-inspired thing with dino assets from that Ark game. Care to offer some comments, critique, etc.?
