Well, the awaited Gears of War 3 is coming out in April. And if you haven’t read any of my early blogs then you should know that GoW 3 is my personally most awaited game that I want…And from looking at the trailer, it won’t disappoint.
Starting off, I have to say that the graphics is well tuned. Still the same gritty gears from the past. That of which is NOTHING wrong with that. If it’s not broken don’t fix it. I like the job that each artist did to the game. The scenery is breathtaking. I got the vibe of something scary and harsh is about to go down. The way that the scene looks, it looks like it will pack a punch!
Models, are still superb. Now, in the trailer it shows Dom with gray hair. But, I have to put the ashes in the equation. I think his hair is still black but it seemed to me that he was out in that particular area so long that he didn’t had the opportunity to wash his face from the ashes. Yet, it has been debated when the trailer first came out that he was turning gray. The other model’s is good too. Anya (Which it has to be) looks good. JUST like I pictured her to be (If you have read the books, then you’ll prob say the same thing too). The Lambent looks impressive, and it seems the grubs have gotten a upgrade (Yet again).
Now, back to the subject of the character Dom. The opening scene shows him running in a “Graveyard” type of area and he fell down and a grub was a second away about to kill him. Until the “savior” Marcus came to the rescue. But it did seem that Dom wanted to die. Yeah, that sounds sketchy, but from his eyes he look like he was “accepting” death. Is that some clues if one of our beloved four soldiers will die (That’s if Carmine doesn’t join the group 🙂 )? I don’t know, but it is something to think about. Epic games always throw a curve ball towards us every now and then (You all remember Felix dad in the tunnel?).
Talking about the curve balls, the lambent comes into play in this game. We finally get to see, and witness, what the grubs was at war with down in the tunnel in Gears of War 2. So, not only do we have the grubs to deal with, we also have the lambent too! In the trailer, it shows both the grubs AND delta fighting the lambent. And to think, grubs was the WORST of delta’s problem…*Shakes head*
All in all, this game is one of the most anticipated games of the year. It has all the good ingredients: A good story, good gameplay and ACTION!. I don’t know about you, but I will be picking this up on day ONE! Here’s the link to the trailer: GOW 3 Trailer
By the way, the picture below should show you how much I love Gears of War.
