Video games seem to hit the torrent scene a few to a couple of weeks before there street dates, but several months is a big deal! Recently torrent trackers have been packed with a unfinished build of the highly anticipated Gears of War 3. Microsoft’s security team has been working with law enforcement trying to sort things out. We’re gonna pitch a little warning to those of you who might be thinking about giving this one a go. Seeing how this is an internal pre-retail build of the game, we expect that they’ll be going all out in making an example out of people caught with this one.
We enjoy a good Gears of War montage like anyone else, but this one holds a special place in our hearts. This minute long massacre features Aaron Griffin whom happens to be voiced by Ice-T. Yes we know ‘Ice Loves Coco,’ but apparently he loves kicking ass as well.
If you’re one of the many planning on picking up Gears of War 3 this coming September and you’ve already finished the last two games, there’s a little something extra waiting for you. Epic Games’ Rod Fergusson told MTV that extras from Gears past will carry over if you have the necessary Achievements. For example if you have the golden Lancer or Hammerburst from the second game, they’ll be available to you in the third game. Fergusson also hinted that there were other extras that will reward people who have played the previous games.
In times of war, there’s nothing like having someone to watch your back. These two pairs give new meaning to the word bromance. We wanted to know who you thought was the better duo, and who wins in an all out deathmatch? Be sure to cast your vote and leave a comment letting us know what led to your decision. Both the COGs and ISA fight for worthy causes, but today they fight each other! There is no penalty for being a fanboy/fangirl, in fact we encourage it!
This is easily the most anticipated game at E3, especially if you’re an Xbox 360 fan. Gears of War 3 just got a brand new rocking trailer featuring: War Pigs by Black Sabbath. Things are really starting to look like they’re going to conclude with a bang. September 20th needs to hurry up and get here already!
Ready to spend 150 bones? Info for the Gears of War 3 Limited and Epic editions have been revealed and things look pretty sweet. You’ve got until September 20th to figure things out!

Microsoft and Epic have officially announced that Gears of War 3 will go on sale on September 20th. So you can head to your local game store and start stacking up $10 per month, which should have you all covered. Well at least until they announce some insane collector’s edition, so you might wanna stay on standby. If this still sounds too far away for you, remember there is a Gears 3 beta in the recently released Bulletstorm. This should hopefully calm those cravings down just a bit.
Epic has let loose a small taste of Gears of War 3 screens and we’re just glad to show them. Too bad the game won’t be released until the holiday season. We must say it’s looking pretty good so far. Makes us wish we still had that time machine around but that’s another story in itself.
April 5th 2011 was the given date for Gears of War 3 to be released. Apparently this wasn’t written in stone, because yep you guessed it, it’s been delayed! The game is now slated for a fall 2011 release. Epic is saying this has nothing to do with development and is about marketing. We don’t know about you but we don’t need any commercials or promos give us the game now and we’ll be happy! On a serious note Microsoft is said to be promising Gears of War 3 will be “the biggest entertainment launch of 2011.” This is all great, but why announce this now? The game went from being months away to now a year or longer. We’re speculating that the alleged “marketing” could really be due to the release of Bulletstorm being set for February. Most likely Epic doesn’t want this important title to be overshadowed by the release of Gears of War 3. This is just speculation on our part but what do you expect? We’re pissed!
