Looks like the same old Gears with a few more tweaks. I'm in (and I don't need a blonde guy to entice me to buy it).
Can't wait for this game. Not gonna lie this announcement caught me off guard. I know some folks aren't too sure about having People Can Fly involved but they did a great job with porting Gears 1 to the PC. They are still gonna have other mp versus modes as previous games as well a the new Horde/Beast mix Overrun, which I can't wait for. I always wanted to see this when Horde was first introduced back in Gears 2. As a longtime fan of the series (since 2006) I welcome this game with open arms!
You guys might want to listen to this. It's less than 11 minutes and Rod says:
Should I be worried? I'm going to buy it anyway, but now I have to wonder...It's a new type of Gears of War game. (Paraphrasing)
I don't think that change is a bad thing. The series needs some change to evolve, whether its liked or not. I also read on Gears forums that Epic is still heavily active in development of this game so that it still has that Gears feel so I'm not to worried about anything. From the videos I saw, it still looks like same old Gears.
