Gears Of War 3 Beta Impressions: Week 1


The final addition in the beta's armoury is the retro lancer. This assault rifle is the predecessor to the chainsawed rifle we know and love. It's wildly inaccurate and requires the player to fan their finger on the trigger to compensate for its recoil. It's saving grace is it's awesome execution which sees the player charge headlong into the enemy, gore them in the stomach and lift them to the heavens where they presumably have a nice cream tea with Jesus.

And thats about it for this blog. There's plenty more I wanted to cover such as the badges, pins, unlocks, comprehensive stat tracking pages and generally how fucking awesome it is to play a Gears game that isn't ruined by some assholes shitty dial up connection, but that will have too wait and I'm sure you're all busy playing Portal and I need some breakfast.

My names Damien, I'm 30 years old and I've been playing games since I was knee high to a grass hopper.
I've owned every sega console ever created and I cut my gaming teeth on the original sonic. From there I've moved onto 1st and 3rd person shooters mainly but I divide my time between work, being a parent to two beautiful children and playing games.

The older I get the more I like folk music.
