Would I like GoW 3 or is it more of the same?

Respect to JizJaz over here for pointing out that someone *cough cough Gittothechoppa cough cough* is kissing TC's ass. Now I don't mind TC, but this butt kisser, oh dear. You remind me of Smithers when I watched the early series' of the Simpsons.


I can't think of anything sadder than using an alternate account to defend yourself, let alone days after everyone forgot about it (if they even cared enough to remember in the first place). Hi JizJaz.

Lol nice detective work Sherlock unfortunately you couldn't be further from the truth, I haven't checked Gfaqs in 10 days I'm currently in Turkey and have just finished an authentic Turkish Kebab along with a beautiful bottle of Efes after spending the day at the ancient city of Ephesus and the temple of Artemis (one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world).

So whilst I appreciate your suggestion that I have nothing better to do then develop schizophrenia and bicker anonymously with people who are probably half my age you couldn't be more wrong. No offence not meaning to cause another person to start giving me grief just get your facts straight before you accuse somebody of having no life outside of an Internet forum 0_<

Alts and essays. You must get all the girls!

The two argument-winning fads of forums: 1) Say 'calm down'. 2) Anyone with a view/opinion different to yours must be a troll, so you must therefore state this.

Overly detailed account of life events + Use of whilst during refrain X age reference = stock haughty response/serious thread is serious.

I played Gears of War 1 and it was ok, nothing memorable. Played Gears of War 2 and it got tiring shooting those bullet sponges for hours on end. I liked the start where you're really in a war with your comrades, like the bit with the steampunk tanks, and the bit inside the worm was a highlight, but by the last few hours I was wanting it to end, and it would never end. The last few minutes were kinda anticlimactic anyway.

Should I bother with GoW 3?


I think we need more context here. Like, how much time do you spend playing games? Do you have a big backlog to play already, or are you strapped for entertainment? What's your income situation? How much do you like Gears of War for its lore alone? How about for its combat mechanics versus other shooters? Do you own more consoles than the Xbox 360?

I mean, I highly recommend GoW 3, but whether you'd like it or not depends on a lot of other factors. Frankly, the campaign is most rewarding with 3 other human players. If you're not into the serious, competitive multiplayer—which is a huge highlight of the series IMO—it may not have much replay value. If you like Horde mode, though, I'd say get it and play online. For the price right now, it's a good time/cash value.

All I really wanted to know if it was more of the same, as GoW 2 was to GoW 1, or whether things got bigger and better, more epic moments rather than running large distances shooting a conveyor belt of bullet-sponges.

To answer your questions though: I play most of my free time. I have a lot of games, and consoles, (the benefit of working in or looking in charity shops: free consoles and games!), but they're all gonna get played and it's no determining factor really. As for consoles, yeah, pretty much have all the major ones since the SNES. (Again, benefits of working in a charity shop.) Income situation = mo' money, mo' money, mo' money.

I didn't even know GoW had a lore (though I am quite violent to anyone who uses the word 'lore'). To me it's a roided up Fred Durst/gay porn star with a bunch of other man-freaks and Cole Train BABY shooting bad guys. It's the same for me as if you asked what I thought of Bad Dudes' lore.

Like I said somewhere above, I found the gameplay to be tiresome with the odd shining moment. As for multiplayer, it's 360-exclusive, right? I usually don't have Gold. Even so, I thought the multiplayer in 1 and 2 was the standard, obligatory multiplayer for a shooter.
