Is this Gears of War 3 running on a PS3?

Here's a fun what-if scenario for your Tuesday afternoon: What if Gears of War, one of Xbox's flagship franchises, made it over to PlayStation? We may have an example of what that looks like. YouTuber Proto (who, appropriately, specializes...

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...

Gears Tactics has a spin on Ironman and it's ultra-risky

I played a ton of Gears Tactics over the course of the last two weeks, and I loved it so much that I'm about ready to go back for more. The endgame Veteran missions are starting to wear thin -- the only thing I'm really chasing is rand...

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...

Gears 5 studio apologizes for outages with free stuff

Online games are known for bumpy launches, and Gears 5 was no exception. Although it may seem like Gears 5 officially launched last week, it kind of didn't. Only the Ultimate Edition went live on September 6, with the fu...

Review in Progress: Gears 5

Gears 5 takes risks, more than just dropping the "of War" from the title. There are structural changes so that developer The Coalition can sincerely call this the biggest Gears game ever. In service of that goal, it works. Gears 5...

Xbox Game Pass keeps getting better

The headlines will focus on Gears 5, and rightfully so. Microsoft's policy of adding all its first-party games to Xbox Game Pass the day they release is one of the industry's best bargains. That, alone, justifies the subscription price for ...

Dave Bautista will be playable in Gears 5

I guess all that campaigning to star in the Gears of War movie has paid off. In Gears 5, players will be able to assume the identity of Dave Bautista and kill some grubs. The former WWE superstar announced his inclusion in The Coalition's ...

Microsoft confirms Gears Tactics for Xbox One

The Gears of War franchise got a lot of love at E3 2018. In addition to confirming the existence of Gears 5 (which no one thought was under debate), we also got the sort of satirical Gears Pop! and Gears Tactics confirmed as spin-offs for t...

Gears Pop! is now available on PC and mobile

One of the weirder announcements of E3 2018 was Gears Pop! Mashing Gears of War with the stupidly popular Funko Pop brand, many thought it was a big joke before Microsoft confirmed it would be a free-to-play game landing on mobile devices. ...

Gears 5 launches on Steam at the same time as Windows 10 PC

Gears 5 formally arrives on September 10 on Xbox One and Windows 10. We've known that much since E3. However, a lingering question mark has been when the Steam version would launch. It's reasonable to think Microsoft might give itself ...
