Gears 3 gets a release date!

September 20th is the official drop date for Gears of War 3 according to executive producer Rod Fergusson and yahoo.com.

It also seems there is more info on the way in the coming days. Most likely there will be news involving the Gears 3 beta. The release of Bulletstorm yesterday has gamers buzzing about when the beta might start. Those of you how picked up the game received a code that gets you into the beta early. Be sure to hang on to that game disk because you will need it to play.

As for those not interested in the crotch stomping Bulletstorm had to offer don’t fret, there will be other ways to get into the beta according to Fergusson. So sit tight Gear heads, more news to come!

Some Bullet Points for Bulletstorm

I’m still on the fence about whether or not I plan to pick up Epic Games Bulletstorm. But as the release date of 2/22 nears I seem to see more and more good things about it. One being this amusing trailer that my buddy Ian posted over at Omega-Level.

Also, as most of you Gear heads know by now, the Epic Edition of Bulletstorm will include access to the upcoming Gears of War 3 beta. Personally I feel that including the beta sends the wrong message to the community. That to increase sales of the game they needed to add this incentive that would push some fans of Gears into buying this game. My views on this have changed slightly after seeing some of the trailers and gameplay. But there’s still plenty of time to make my decision of buy or no buy.

Check out the Bulletstorm site to get more info and videos on the game.

Thoughts on this game? Do you plan on picking it up?

No Kinect in Gears 3

We can all now breath a collective sigh of relief. As the rumors of Kinect integration in Gears of War 3 are quashed by CliffyB himself.

Now I’m all for Kinect being used for causal and family games but keep it as far away as humanly possible from the hardcore games. Want to ruin the success of an awesome mature game series? Add Kinect or PS Move to it. That will drive your sales right down the tubes.

Via IGN.com

According to our tip, Microsoft is using the Spike TV Video Games Awards (VGAs) to introduce some big action games, including new titles for the Kinect. The headliner is Gears of War for Kinect, coming straight from Epic Games. Now, we cannot clarify whether or not this is an all-new Gears of War for Kinect or if it’s an existing Gears of War game, retro-fitted for the camera controller. But it definitely clicks with recent rumblings that Microsoft wants to get in front of the conventional wisdom that the Kinect is only a toy for casual gamers and family.

I know that Microsoft wants to boost sales but please don’t shove it down the throats of hardcore gamers. I know you think they want it, but they really don’t. They really really don’t. Keep the casual Kinect ready games separate from the hardcore M-rated games and we can all be happy under one console. That’s all I, and many other gamers, want.
