    We've known for a long time now that there would be a GOW3, as good as the first two were and the third is likely to be, I just cannot bring myself to get hyped and excited about a game that is a year away.

    I'll look back on this thread in about 11 months...

    This game might be good. Then again, the gameplay might just be using the chainsaw to carve up meat cubes that are hanging from trees. Underwater. And then the last boss will be a mercury cube.

    Translation of the text. Not mine but nicked it from another forum.

    Translation of info in the scans, sweet

    NOTE: This extract is taken from official EPIC forums AS IT IS so please don't mind if anything doesn't fit

    1.> what this is saying...oh here we go...

    the little square on the top left says:

    "Epic is taking hints from previous Unreal Tournament game. "Those girls (ours) looked like Polish pornstars." (Just translating.) That helped the authors redraw Anya in a shape and form of a girl from Lenningrad's highway. (Russian spot to pick up 'easy' girls)"

    The first paragraph is saying that "the 3rd game will end the trilogy (duh) but EPIC is not giving up on the gears series. "Next ten years you'll spend hugging GoW" (as direct as I can). There will be prequels, spinoffs and maybe even a transition to a new genre. Maybe it will be like Greed Corp just with people and Locust. The main thing is that the story of Marcus Fenix is ending and ending just in time before getting boring (that's just mean)."

    The last paragraph is recaping all the events of Gears 2 and the little square on bottom left is saying that Lambents are mutated locust that spit acid and explode after dying that's it for that one.

    2.> Alright...this one is saying that....

    A year and a half later (aha) there is no more COG, no more government, no more organized resistance. (...aha) Leader of the COG disappeared to unknown location (wuss), army fell apart, parts of humanity formed little tribes and now fight for their survival. "We are all stranded now" (needs no translation) - say the heroes of Gears of War 3. Meaning that they are in the same spot that they left some of its territories that COG once left behind. (over run by Locust). Large number of those people died in the Hammer of Dawn offensive (ya'll better know what that is.) The ashy remains of them are shown in the trailer 'Ashes to ashes'. The Locust are now in the similar situation (yeah, keep reading). Left without homes (boohoo), driven off by the Lambent. They like the humans are fighting a war for their survivor (go LOCUST). Even the planet seems to be affected by this. Imulsion, the soul reason the humanity waged war on itself, now seems to be slowly killing off the planet (OMG I F**** KNEW IT!) They need to do something and do it quickly, but who's they? (as in who's supposed to do it.). Everyone lives by the day.

    (this part is EPIC WIN) Even in multiplayer the environment constantly shifting (not explained how). The top picture is from the beginning of the match and the bottom one is five minutes later

    Hope that made sense...moving on.

    3.>This is saying...

    (the little square on top left) "That's a new home for Marcus and his friends. In periods between cleaning their Lancers, Gears take care of the gardens (not kidding that's what is says word for word) of tomatoes and potatoes. "Don't mess with my tomatoes" - yells Dom to the enemies (not specified who) attacking the aircraft carrier."

    4.>Same picture as before...

    "New 'home' of Macurs - aircraft carrier called 'Raven's nest' (somebody call Jonesy! ). Which sales through seas aimlessly, just trying to survive. From time to time Gears have to fight off enemies and protect their tomatoes (sounds funnier in English actually). *********SPOILER ALERT********* The game starts off with Prescott landing on the deck of the Raven's Nest. Marcus give him the EYE! Prescott says that he had a reason to leave (leave run same thing) and presents Marcus with an audio recording from Adam who has a way to save the planet (here we go again). It's easy to figure out the fore-coming events. **************no Spoiler******************

    I lost this big chunk, the page refreshed but I was smart enough to Ctrl C before. Basically it talks about Baird and Cole having their own storyline at one point in the campaign. And yes that is Jace, he's in. And the author of the article thought that Anya was a guy from Final Fantasy at first.

    "She (scratched out) turned into a...badass (I guess) (normal text) let her hair loose, put on armor, and now fights along side Marcus. Besides her there will be several more female characters thought mostly as...redshirts ( I guess)."

    "By the looks of things the main enemy will be Lambent and not Locust...and he goes on describing the Lambent again."

    Whoooh alright let's see what's next.

    5.> This one...

    "The Lambet are able to battle 2-3 Gears at the same time. Once they feel they're close to dying they charge for the nearest Gears to explode next to them. Their tentacles remain active even after the body dies (god knows what that's supposed to mean) Overall (crude translation) mean bastards. We however did NOT get a chance to play the game (EPIC HAS A DEMO!!!!!!!). Epic did not let any journalists near the controllers (good). But based on our knowledge of Halo (huh?) enemies like that are very annoying."

    "On the other hand there are new weapons and executions (you like that don't you...sickos! ). The prime example would be a Grenade launcher with ORGANIC earth drilling grenades (Locust presumably). If you need to smoke somebody out cover there is no better option. After firing, the grenade digs into the ground, travels under all the obstacle and explodes where you aimed at. (Like upside down Mortar ). "

    "DB shotgun takes long time to reload and can only take up two shells at a time. However it's insanely powerful and both barrels can be fired at the same time (YES, excellent)."

    (direct translation) "There is also a rifle that shoots singles, but has very little delay between rounds. It's advantage is that while shooting at the same target every..." (the page ends there)

    (the little square) "Cliff Blizinski says hi to all the all the Sci Fi of the past 30 years" (go figure)

    (larger square) (talking about Lambet) "Every other Sci Fi game ALWAYS introduces a third front."

    Not a word about the spider thingys.

    "Each bullet does more and more damage."

    "For some special situations there is now an exo-skeleton called Silver-Back (EPIC MOTHOFING PWNAGE!) which looks like Vital Suit from Lost Planet (RAGE). It's equipped with a machine gun (infinite ammo) and a grenade launcher (this one is NOT infinite, sadly). Well protected from the front but not the back sadly. (begs the question, WHY?) When transferred into stationary mode the suit becomes a turret and drops shields that people can take cover behind."

    "Almost every gun has its own unique execution now. Knife-bayonet (Pendulum War Lancer) you can cut the enemies throat (nasty, yes), with shotgun you can break the neck, with mortar you can squash the head, and with the flame thrower you can set people on fire...from the INSIDE."

    "If you have a meatshield, you can put it to very good use. A grenade is placed inside the Locust' armor, followed by "this is Sparta" kick (yeah I added that), the grub flies to his comrades and explodes."

    "There are three types of grenades. (Bolo/Frag, Ignitable, and Smoke) and they could be combined with one another. For example a Ignitable grenade followed by a Frag will create a fire-y hell in a closed environment."

    "You can now swap weapons and ammo (love you muchly EPIC!). No more of "Don't touch my DAMN AMMO!" or "No, you picked up the last time. And give me that Mortar", "What you need Mortar for, you a noob that dies all the time." And of course 4 player co-op."

    I got too frustrated with this part so I'll just summarize it:

    "Cliff found out that 60 percent of the people stop playing the game without finishing it. (Yeah they're called N00bs). So in order to help them out, there's going to be more story and character development, but also the difficulty will be lower. (a double edged sort as some would say)"

    Cliff - "Graphics, oh yes the graphics will be better. take a look we have multilayered shadows (can't think of the proper term). There is now wind and much more particles flying around. But keep in mind that it's hard to squeeze out a lot of performance from the current gen processors. That's the reason for lower frame rate (WTF?). Instead of chasing after 60 fps we decided to make it look better, we think that's a good choice. (let us hope so). Also the levels change in real take a look.." - continued on the next page.

    This is in order so far...just one to go.

    Alright the last page is mainly Cliff talking about changing levels and summarizing the ideas from "Destroyed Beauty" (look it up). The picture with a mech suit has a caption: "Cliff says that to this day he has not played Lost Planet, yeah right." (a bit cruel for my tastes).

    and the picture with Dom and Marcus standing by the tomatoes says: "Who would have thought that the epic struggle between Humans and Locust would come to protecting some a garden of tomatoes."

    Alright that's it folks...happy to be helpful.

    The screenshots link a couple of posts above ends in a 404, but a quick Google and I found the images here:

    I like the WW1-style machine guns on the COG mech, but its a pity everyone seems to have misplaced most of their armour they had in Gears 2.

    Look at the female COG. She probably makes the real COG's sandwiches for the long drawn out assaults on the horde.

    Hahaha sexism hahaha.

    Just in case you read any articles about GOW3 being made easier as 60% or so of GOW2 players didn't complete it, this is from CliffyB on Gaf:


    Please do not take that Russian article as gospel. It's a bad translation of a leaked scan and, to be frank, it looks like the writer got a lot of his details mixed up.

    The game won't be easier, "casual" will be easier because, quite frankly, the easiest setting should be dead easy. The higher difficulties will most certainly keep you engaged and keep your palms sweaty. :)

    And we go for 30 fps, there's no news there of 60fps all of a sudden or us shipping a game that's 15.

    Sadly, tabloid journalism has taken over in many aspects of the gaming industry.

    I hope they don't have many timed turret shooting sections again. For me the toughest part of the whole Gears 2 campaign was defending the comms array in Jacinto with a turret. I must have failed that bit more than a dozen times, even on normal difficulty.

    I dont know if i like the fact that the creatures your now going to be fighting are gonna try and attack you like sires or wretches.

    I know the locusts are pretty stupid but i would prefer to have some sort of enemy that makes a boomer look like pussies.

    Lambet Raam back from the dead? :)

    Not sure how new these are or how close to ingame they will turn out(aside from the AA not being as good most likely, nobody does untill we see some footage) but I've not seen them before.


    Found here:

    Why in the world would you sell a console anyhow? Did you hate it that much?

    It's a console, for cryin' out loud. A console that plays games.

    Also, it's a bit puzzling to sell your 360 at this point in time, considering it seems like there aren't many PS3 exclusives due out to the end of the year.

    Sorry... just curious.

    A few reasons. Blu ray, BBC iPlayer, probable longevity of the hardware i.e its only been out 3 years, better choice of movie rental and also I like more of the exclusives.

    Does anyone know of a potential release date on this?

    I wasn't sure whether to put this in the Xbox 360 category to start with due to news item on IGN from Sept 09 stating:

    The wait for Gears of War 3 could be longer than expected, with Epic Games President Mike Capps saying it will be released on the next generation of consoles meaning that it could be between four to five years until we see Marcus Fenix and company again.


    However Hexus reported:

    With huge game sales comes the inevitable sequel, so there's no real surprise that the latest rumour to come out of videogame magazine EGM is that the third instalment in the Gears of War series is currently in development.

    The magazine claims that Gears of War 3 has an estimated release date of 2010, which would put each of the titles two years apart and once again it will see the return of the game's hero, Marcus Fenix.


    So 2010 or 2014, Xbox 360 or Next-Gen? I personally can't see why it wouldn't be out sooner rather than later.

    i got an xbox mag with a demo/trailer disc with it and it had G.O.W 3 in it and it said april 2011 so either way i cant wait coz i havent layed th 1st but ihave played the 2nd and i liked that so i quess this one should be good and it also has a new type of enemy in it!! lol

    Hope the new enemy type doesn't take away too much of the cover and shoot game style of this. I get the feeling that they are more of a rush enemy like the wretches.

    Comic con Press conference. There is some seriously kick ass SP footage about 5-7 minutes in. Looks amazing.
