Gears of War 3

If you fancy yourself some Gears of War 3, then it's time to dust off the trusty Retro Lancer and get ready to roll into some chest-high walls. According to the official Gears of War Facebook page, a multiplayer event re...
Epic Games has declared that the Hammerburst and Lancer Avatar props are going to be removed on January 1, 2012, as part of a new anti-gun policy. Microsoft will be barring any Avatar proper that resembles a firearm. Gotta pr...
Gears of War 3 gets its third add-on in the New Year with "Fenix Rising." This DLC gives players five new maps, four character skins, and a system that lets you rank up through level 100 multiple times to unlock weapon s...
"RAAM's Shadow"'s greatest strength is its premise. A prequel set in the hours following Emergence Day, the first piece of campaign DLC for Gears of War 3 hints at what Ilima City looked like before it was destroyed, both by ...


There’s a scene in the second chapter of Gears of War 3 in which Cole Train has a flashback to his time as a professional thrashball player before becoming a COG soldier. When I saw it the first time, I noticed that it ...
Admittedly, I have not played much of original Gears of War multiplayer, but I always enjoy seeing a new take on an established level. Bullet Marsh is a part of the free Versus Booster Map Pack that is set to go live on Nove...
What are you doing this upcoming November 24? I'll be cooking and serving and baking pies and sh*t. And eating. Have you tasted my cooking? It's outstanding. Like, my baked goods are good, but my entrees and such are really n...
We told you that the Gears of War 3 Horde Command Pack was delayed a bit, but now it's good for downloading. And I'd bet the download finishes before you can finish reading this article. It's 1.42mb! Less than 2 mb? $10 isn't...
I don't think this joke will be well accepted, but I already wrote it down, so I might as well run with it. Fun Times with the Lancer 3 is the journey to save Sera, and this video is a journey into copyright infringement. I ...
While Dominic Santiago has spent three games slaughtering the Locust, grieving over his wife and exchanging longing glances with Marcus Fenix, he's got it easy compared to his voice actor, Carlos Ferro. Kids today don't care...

First off, I have never played a Gears game until recently. Not that I have anything against the franchise, its just that we were two ships passing in the night -- that, and I am without an Xbox 360. I had the opportunity to play three of the multiplayer modes -- Team Deathmatch, Beast, and Horde Mode -- ahead of the game's full release next week.
Major League Gaming hit Raleigh, North Carolina last weekend which, unfortunately, was the same week as PAX Prime. With the Penny Arcade Expo now behind us, here's some results from the weekend's action. There were four tourn...
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of sitting down with Gears of War 3 Executive Producer, Rod Fergusson. It was also the closest I'll probably ever get to feeling like I'm a host of a Late Night show with our interview set...
Patricia Hernandez brought us a detailed look at some of the early bits of Gears of War 3's campaign. Along with her preview came some new screenshots and we couldn't help but notice one new screen in particular. What the hell is wrong with Anya Stroud's face?! Did Marcus just let out a big fart next to her? What do you think they're all looking out to make such a gross expression?
Epic Games takes spoilers very seriously, so much so that your actions on Youtube could impact your gaming. According to the studio, it has the power to ban anybody from Gears of War 3 if they're caught posting spoiler videos...

Stepping into the multiplayer mode of any game is no laughing matter when you're a newbie to the franchise. Experienced players can and will mop the floors with novices, and this creates a tiresome, unfun environment for thos...
Gears of War 3 has received an official USK 18 rating in Germany, meaning Germans won't have to go across the border and import a copy of Zahnräder des Krieges 3 this time around. Epic Games president Mike Capps told Joy...

Happy Friday, Destructoid readers! Before you head out to your local pub or sporting event, why not take approximately 13 minutes and 27 seconds out of your day first to catch up on some video game news? First up on tonigh...
This past weekend, we posted word that Gears of War 3 had been leaked online. According to the latest gossip, this leak was due not to a nefarious Epic mole, but to some impressive carelessness on Microsoft's part.  It i...
It appears an early build of Gears of War 3 has leaked to the Internet, which allegedly includes the full campaign and multiplayer modes and may be an E3 build. After looking around, this turns out to be a developer build or ...
Following E3 the majority of you would have gathered that I am quite the Gears fangirl, but despite my love for the franchise I cannot justify getting rid of my new Xbox 360 Slim just for the newly skinned Gears of War versio...
If you can read words, you've likely already heard all about Gears of War 3's "Horde 2.0" mode. I saw it and played it at E3, and it's kind of awesome, a perfect evolution of the game mode many of us already loved. Now Epic ...
Move it, football-head. It's Friday, so today's episode of The Destructoid Show was carefree and whimsical. Here's the rundown: Jimmy Fallon, that guy who was in Taxi with Queen Latifah, sometimes covers video game news on h...

Videogame week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon continues! Last night Fallon hosted the recently-engaged Cliff Bleszinski (congrats!) to show off the upcoming Gears of War 3.  As Fallon points out, this game is kind of a ...
So far, the most stupid and fun announcement to come out of E3 2011 is the word that Ice-T's metal band, Body Count, will reunite to celebrate Gears of War 3's Horde mode. Once upon a time, the band sold out concert halls and...
My pass for Microsoft's E3 press conference just arrived, and it's the first multiple choice badge I've received for any event. The Mad Libs-style pass comes with blank spaces for various things including: "Status," "Favorite...
Much has been made of Gears of War 3's vast multiplayer options, to the point where you might forget that the game has a narrative campaign. Epic Games has reminded us all of this fact today, teasing the game's campaign mode...
