I haven't seen much mentioned on this board about it. I didn't get a chance to play the beta. I enjoyed 1 a lot, but the lack of ranked multiplayer with friends kind of killed it for me, i played a little of 2, but three has me very intrigued.

Who here is getting it and what are your thoughts?

I'm not a diehard Gears fan like some, but I was in the Beta and thought 3 was vastly improved over 1 & 2 (couldn't stand 2 personally). Gameplay is quicker than 2, graphics are nice, gore is better than 2, weapons seem balanced (although they will probably nerf the retro lancer and maybe sawed off). The maps were fun and I look forward to play them all. I mainly stick to the multi for Gears games but will do some coop campaign. It's gonna be a day 1 purchase for me.

its looking like a great game, the beta alone was just amazing, i really enjoyed gears 1 and 2 but gears 3 just blows them out of the water

Enjoyed Gears 1.

Found Gear 2 to be mediocre online but grinded to level 100 anyways.

Played the Gears 3 beta - gotta say I'm excited for September 20th.

Visually it looks great. I have less than zero interest in it though. I could never get into the first two no matter how many times I tried.

Can't wait. Loved the beta. Alot faster paced and more varied than Gears 2. Also, rifles are actually worth using now. Sawed off shotgun has the potential to really change the way the game is played. 4 player campaign co-op will be great.

I'm not really a collector's edition type of guy, but I have the $150 Epic edition preordered.

It has a chance to become my favorite game this gen.
Gears 1 is still my favorite game this gen.
Gears 2 campaign was vastly improved and I loved it, but the multiplayer took a turn for the worse. It's became decent after 6 updates, but still not better then Gears 1 fast paced multi.

this was pretty much my sentiments exactly, the beta was awesome, I put 100s of hours into gears 1 MP and could only muster 100s of minutes into gears 2 broken MP before I stipped playing it, the beta for 3 was awesome though
I have a feeling that Rage is going to poo on everything else released this year, long live id!

Played through the SP campaigns of both 1 and 2, that's my extent of GoW experience, but...

GoW 2 felt exactly like 1. This new one feels exactly like the other two.
