Your First Look At Gears Of War 3
While we already know Gears of War 3 is on its way in April 2011, the game made its public debut earlier tonight on the Jimmy Fallon show, giving us our first 73-second look at the Xbox shooter.

As you can see in the teaser trailer shown above, Gears of War 3 introduces a number of new elements to the series, such as double-barrel shotguns, big, tentacled bad guys and female soldiers.

The trailer looks fine, but what I liked best was how well Dude Huge came across on TV. Very presentable! We'll get you a high quality of the trailer as soon as one is made available. Despite the earlier April 11 date, when pressed for an exact release date, Bleszinski told Fallon it would be out "probably April 8".

Nothing screams fun then characterless cumbersome controlled characters whos grunts and snorts weave the story in the games. At least its better than halo. Not hard to do mind.

The Female Gears will make you love it Alucard. ;)

I love the trailers they make for these games. If the whole game was that entertaining they would be as popular as CoD. I still love em though.

I watched this last night. It was awesome seeing the new enemies and how roughneck the females look. I'm going to get another 360 for this. I also enjoyed hearing about how he grew into games. It's worth watching if you haven't seen it already.

I'm looking forward to this, I just hope they get the match making right, they totally screwed it up in Gears 2.

Also, Rod confirmed and I'm posting it here: 4 player integrated story co op in the campaign!

Four player coop would IMO could make Windows Live something a lot more interesting. But since Gears 2 wasn't released on PC I highly doubt they will change their minds with Gears 3. I've loved the series look ever since the teasers started for the original.

Had to remind myself Unreal Tournament was Unreal before UT ever came out. Funny I thought Jazz the Jackrabbit was one of his first games. With such a heavy presense of nongamers?? I guess something like that wouldn't be mentioned. Hopefully noone in the audience blew it off as a geek thing. The drop and gun gameplay mechanic sure raised my brow in terms of shooters.

This bitch looks like the Locus Queen.

This bitch looks like the Locus Queen.

Ha, ha...so true. Since its the same developer, I wonder if it was intentional.

I look forward to this game. It's a lot of fun to play co-op online.

I liked the first one but the 2nd one was just ..meh.. very forgettable to me. Horde mode with buddies was fun for like a week but overall the game felt lifeless and bland.

The whole time I played it and Killzone 2 I kept thinking about how Joe rips modern shooters for their dull brown/gray atmosphere and I found myself agreeing.

I don't think the Halo series is all that great either Alucard but I still found Halo 3 more enjoyable than Gears 2 and Killzone 2.

The online multiplayer is by far the best part of these games. Its funny I've had GOW2 since Christmas and I just started playing the campaign with a buddy. This is my favorite game for the Xbox by leaps and bounds. It wouldn't really be worth the $60 just to play the campaign. The disparity between good and bad players is easy to tell online, whereas a game like Call of Duty can make anyone feel good because they can spawn behind someone and just shoot them once and get a kill, which is a big reason why everyone loves it because it's good at making everyone feel good.

The trailer looks badass, I can't wait for this game to be released. Hopefully they will improve on the technical glitches that 2 suffered (and still does despite patches) from online.

Me and my P90 > any weapon in any other game.

What I liked about CS was that back when everything was Deathmatch and Capture the flag these guys were like Eff Deathmatch and capture the flag your ass is bomb planting today.!
