Gears of War 3 is set to come out in April 2011. It's going to have 4 player co-op, double barrelled shotguns, female soldiers, better cover system and smoother online (yes!!). Also, the Pendulum era lancer is in the game, which should make for some excessively brutal executions.

Is anyone else really excited? The main thing I hope they fix though is the online matchmaking.

lo pan Lo Pan cares NOT for your Gears of War 3. Lo Pan prefers to watch the cherry blossoms fall under the third full moon of the season of the Jade dragon.

I played about two hours through the first game over the course of like four months and said fuck it.

I never really liked GoW, I played it once it a friend's house and it wasn't bad or anything, but no where near as good as people claim it to be. (imo)

It reminds me of the first season of Star Trek TNG, where despite the fact that it did have some action, it was all set up to have an air of beige and grey, where all of your water is lukewarm and you can hear yourself breathing just a little too much. Every aspect, it seemed, was some sort of uncomfortable or bland. What especially annoys me is how running and taking cover use the same button, and since there is massive motion blur, lack of control and camera bob while running and your character takes up the center of the screen, there is no particular way to tell where you're actually going and if you'll make it to where you need to be or end up running into a waist-high wall and humping it.

it is getting pretty hard to ignore you mister dragons

I never played any of the Gears of War games, but they looked pretty alright.

I didn't like the first one very much. The second one had some nice set pieces. I never quite finished it though, I think I got about 90% through. It just seemed to run out of steam for me. You were doing the same thing, over and over and over again against the same kind of enemies in the same kind of environments. The story wasn't enough to drag me along so I put it down one day and just never went back to it.

I see the appeal though, I understand why some people would like it, it's just not really my cup of tea. And again, I'm not a multiplayer kind of guy, I think this was what drew in a lot of people.

Hey, I havn't posted on this yet! :D
Well, I'll admit, I like the GoW series... Sorry, Uberman, I liked the story a lot!
PLEASE DONT LASER ME! D:
Anyway, the multiplayer was a mess, with all the server problems... Living in Australia, it took me half an hour to get into a lag-ridden match, then be pwned by a 10yo american kid, before the game ended, then I was taken back to the main menu! It doesn't let you stay in a lobby of any kind! Hopefully this is changed! :|

I did. I'm not a huge fan of rail shooting sections but it was all very pretty and things blew up, which was good. I like it when things blow up.
