I'm not saying Submarine time was difficult, I'm saying it was stupid. And man, that ice level WAS a pain in the ass.

Unrelated, while the character building in Gears 3 has been nice, a lot of stuff is pretty cliche. Ice-T's character alone is EVERY black character in power in ANYTHING EVER.

Oh man, I had to mute it whenever he spoke. I just wanted him to shut up so badly.

Iunno, I didn't think it was that bad. All of the Gears games have had something similar that's just plain... why. Like the mine cart section in Gears 1.

And it was very, very clear that Ice-T's character was written for him and just stuck in there. I thought that whole bit was very "hey it's a forced sidequest!" but whatever!

This. Drake as Jace was fine, as he really didn't stick to a certain stereotype and his character is actually pretty likeable. Cole at times, was pretty bad, but at least there's been some attempt of development since Gears 1. Ice-T's "DAMN THE MAN, FIGHT THE POWER" routine worked in 1992, but that's over 20 years ago, and most of his street cred has been ruined by his acting career. Casting him as "Angry Black man with bling" didn't due the series any favors. That and the whole Dom thing. You know, THE REALLY IMPORTANT THING INVOLVING DOM. That scene has been done in videogames and movies at least 3 times every five years.

On the brightside, as least the female characters in the game have been pretty cool so far.

Heck yes, I love all of the female COGs, especially Sam.

Did anyone else think that song felt really out of place?

Still, pretty much anything is better than when Dom is reunited with Maria in Gears 2. I could never figure out what bothered me more about that scene. Dom shooting Maria to "put her out of her (read: the player's) misery," or the fact that he shot her with a gun that would essentially blow her entire head off.

You mean Bodycount's "Gears of Wars"? I heard it awhile back, and it was terrible then, so it didn't come as a complete suprise. They all cant be Cole Train's rap song.

I didn't mind Dom reunion with his wife as a scene, but yeah, that gun SHOULD have ripped her to shreds.


I beat Gears 3 last night, and like I said on twitter, it was good, managed to redeem itself after the Sub, but I felt like the best scenes happended earlier in the game. By the end, I was expecting Marcus to scream "THIS ONE'S FOR YOU MORPH!" when he shanked the final boss.

The Carmine stuff was actually hilarious though.

And like Arch said, it answered MOST of my questions regarding the Gears-world. Not all of them. Mayhaps we should start a seperate Gears-spoiler thread?

No. No it wouldn't.

This is good because, due to work, I have barely gotten to play Gears 3 at all. Super pisser.

Surprisingly, I am not playing the Battlefield 3 beta, only because I lent my good friend my PS3. Probably not the smartest decision during this time, but I guess not being able to play the beta will make me even more excited for the actual game's release.

So instead I'm playing more Brosona 2. Man, farming these tarot cards just to summon one Persona is a chore. I'm kinda surprised fans prefer this way over Persona 3 and 4's Shuffle Time.

Then invite him here! Not everyone is on Coscom's forums just because they like to cosplay after all. I haven't updated my profile in probably a year.

Got my copy of Brosana 2 yesterday, thus proving one should never trust an Amazon email.

Started playing it this morning. Which in reality, meant I pushed the analog stick and X for 40 minutes before getting to work.

I should be playing the ICO/Shadow of the Colossus HD remakes, but the UPS guy won't go into my building. ::Shakes fist::
