Review: Gears of War 4

The plot of Gears of War 4 is the most low stakes the franchise has ever been. Ironic, kind of, because it's probably the highest stakes ever for Xbox. With Epic Games no longer serving as its guiding hand, Xbox is left to see if ...

The Gears of War Xbox One S is a neat tribute to the series

I wasn't tasked with designing the machine, but I'm hard-pressed to think of a look for a Gears of War Xbox One S that better fits the franchise. This thing is unapologetically brash, ostentatious, and indiscreet -- all words that...

Buy a GTX 1070 or 1080, get Gears of War 4 for free

Upgrading your PC for the latest games is something of a lost practice. Since a lot of games are based on console architecture, most newer toasters are able to run anything. Some games (Crysis) will push your system to the breaking point, b...

Gears of War 4 season pass detailed

I've only been a staff writer for a little over a month and I'm already tired of season passes. Why does every game require one? When something like Lego Batman 3 gets a season pass, you know there are problems with the industry. Tangent as...

Gears of War 4's Horde mode is class-based

Are you looking forward to Gears of War 4?

I haven't really seen any major buzz (at least in the community itself) regarding Gears of War 4. I remember there being some excitement towards the initial reveal and the enhanced focus on horror, but not much since. This footage of the ma...

Marcus Fenix tags along in new Gears of War 4 gameplay

All new campaign gameplay for Gears of War 4 has been released and it is damned easy on the eyes. Sure, it looks like more of the same, gameplay-wise, but is that really a bad thing? I've always dug the Gears series and even...

This limited-edition Xbox One S is a bit much

I have no desire to get an Xbox One S -- not as a current Xbox owner and especially not with Microsoft's Project Scorpio coming down the line -- but I can't deny how sharp the system looks in white. This first limited-edition model themed a...
