Gears of War: I'm hooked like crack


4:20 PM on 11.07.2006



chapelle.jpg I had high hopes for Gears of War. In fact, my hopes were so high that there was no possible way Cliffy and company could live up to them. Lucky for me and you, they absolutely did. I can't say enough good things about this game. Nearly every single aspect in single players is perfect. The pacing, cinematic feel, and A.I. response is about as close to flawless as you can get. The game makes me, for the first time, actually yell out and talk trash when playing single player. My usual trash talk and such reserved for noobs online has actually be transfered into this single player realm because you become so immersed like you may have never before in any game, especially a shooter. It's almost impossible for me to put into words the exact feeling that Gears gives you when you play it. All I can say is: playing is believing. My only wish is that there were people online last night so that I could test things out over Xbox Live, but it's almost moot at this point because the single player campaign is so engaging. I couldn't sleep last night because all I thought about was strategy and taking out bunches of Locust fools. When I said the game was hard before, that's just because I wasn't used to what Gears makes you do. After a while, you start to calm down and the game becomes much easier. You start to realize that you can pace yourself and you can rely on your squadmates to hold their own -- which is probably the most refreshing aspect of this shooter. So, again, I'm in love and I'm hooked like crack to this game. I want to go home right now and spend the rest of my days playing this game -- and I haven't even touch multiplayer yet! Help me baby Jesus when that starts kicking into high gear.

Infestation: Broforce + Alien = Aliens?

It's the perfect fit. Broforce is cheesy, over the top 80s action films distilled into a shooter, a sort of hyperactive Contra. Meanwhile, Aliens is a cheesy 80s action film far removed from Alien's brilliance. Keep...more
