Playing Gears Tactics will get you a bonus in Gears 5

Gears fans should play Gears Tactics. It's not an essential part of the lore and it's not the classic Gears formula, but there's a lot of familiarity in Gears that translates well to turn-based strategy. I know I'm going to be lobbying...

Review: Gears Tactics

Sometime in the third act of Gears Tactics, as I was studying the battlefield to find optimal points of cover to send my COGs scurrying behind, the parallels hit me like a ton of bricks: All those Gears games I had been playing since t...

The Batista Bomb is the most incredible Gears 5 execution

Would you like to pick up a naked monster and slam it into chunks? That's it. That's the lede, the highlight, and the premise of the whole damn article. Grapple a nude beast and powerbomb it so forcefully that all its limbs going flying in...

Gears 5 broke the records it should've broke

Gears 5 is a big game in a few different ways. It's big in that it's robust, packed with more content and modes than ever before. It's big in that it's important, the latest entry in one of Xbox's flagship series. And, it's big in that it's...

Review: Gears 5

It was the best of Gears, it was the worst of Gears. It was an amplification of everything every Gears before did well, and it was a maturation of everything those same games struggled with. It was an identity crisis, a dysmorphic preoccupa...
