Here are some of the most memorable adverts for games

We've all seen the Angry Video Game Nerd episode where he compares the SNES with the Sega Genesis and mocks the "blast processing" thrust of the Genesis' marketing campaign. It seems silly now to think that slapping a vague buzzword on tech...

Gears of War 4 is getting a shorter Horde mode variant

Tomorrow, The Coalition is coming out with a shorter, more "intense" version of Horde mode in Gears of War 4. Dubbed Horde Frenzy, the new variant is 25 waves long (half the normal length) with bosses appearing every 5 waves. It's still a t...

Gears of War 4's going to get a lot harder

Gears of War 4 is the kind of game that's built to have a long tail. There are frequent tweaks to refine multiplayer, a constant rotation of maps, a steady stream of themed events -- all efforts to keep people playing. This summer, the...


Gears of War 4 adds cross-play in competitive multiplayer

At last year's E3, Microsoft's big focus was Play Anywhere gaming. That's the initiative that's rooted in the mindset that people can play first-party Microsoft games on both their Xbox or PC; the transition should be seamless. But, an inte...


Gears of War 4 is getting a 10th anniversary update

I can remember the first time I played Gears of War. I was a freshman at Florida Southern College and my friend and I were a bit self-important. We thought we knew everything about everything and we were amazed to find out that Epic Games m...


Run with some jewels in Gears of War 4's new DLC

This is going to come off as an old-man moment, but I have no idea who Run the Jewels are. These two rappers, EL-P and Killer Mike, are now available as playable characters in Gears of War 4. This comes alongside some converted maps from Ge...


Gears of War 4 gets all spooky and scary for Halloween

[Header courtesy of Reddit user Perrinho] Unbeknownst to me, Gears of War has celebrated Halloween in the past. Apparently there was an event for 3 that featured pumpkin heads and it looks like The Coalition is set to follow suit with Gears...


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 ...


Gears of War 4 economy altered due to fan feedback

Gears of War 4 is another highly rated entry in the series by gamers and critics alike (I'm digging the campaign so far), but early access players by way of the Ultimate Edition have had a few complaints. Those issues are being addressed ea...


Bill Gates loved the Gears of War chainsaw gun

Gears of War 4 is out soon and getting rave reviews across the internet. I haven't played it yet, nor do I own a system that would allow me to do so, but I do have extremely fond memories of making my way through the first Gears of War...


Universal is taking a crack at a Gears of War movie

Just ahead of Gears of War 4's release on Tuesday, Microsoft Studios and Universal Pictures have announced plans for a Gears of War feature film "based on the Xbox video game series." Aside from that quote and some initial production credit...


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...
