It is one of this years best selling X-Box 360 titles , but Gears of War 3 is not a “feel good” kind of game. Depressing cut-scenes, gray unsettling landscape, big guns, explosions… it’s a fucking apocalyptic night mare. Thankfully, IGN hired Rifftrax‘s Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett to verbally assault the cut-scenes of Gears of War 3 with classic MST3K results.
Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut.
Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at email@example.com.
There are cosplay videos and then there is this cosplay video. It’s a magically awesome compilation of the best of the best from this year’s Dragon*Con. You may recognize many of these awesome costumes from our own Cosplay Feast, but in motion you can appreciate them even more. (TDW: Geek)
Even though E3 doesn’t officially start till tomorrow, Microsoft wants to start the week off with their press conference, in which they called it “The Future Revealed.” Just what kind of future does Microsoft have planned for us gamers is just a one click away to find out.
With E3 just a week away, you can bet your ass that we’ll be getting ass loads of video game trailers.And it seems that we’re starting off with a trailer from a game series that marked the Xbox 360 as the ultimate third-person shooter console.
Epic Games released their official campaign reveal trailer for Gears of War 3 during the finals of the UEFA Champions League. Just like the name of the game studio, the trailer shows how epic the battle will be in this last installment of the trilogy and having “War Pigs” playing in the background helps set up the fighting mood.
With the addition of four player co-op, mech suits, playable female characters and as Marcus would say, “ten shitloads” of stuff added, are you pumped for the third game or could you care less about it?
Microsoft kicked off the press conference of the Big Three and they started off with a bang last night with their Cirque du Soleil event, it’s now time to see if they will end with one as well (*Hint hint, I think they did). Check after the jump for some videos and news on what was revealed. (more…)
Finally we get the announcement of Epic’s Gears of War 3 and folks, as Marcus would say to Dom, it looks like it’ll be ten $#!T loads of awesome. It seems like it is set some time after Gears 2 and we got the regular cast of folks, with Dom not shaving because he is probably depressed still but it also seems like we may also be getting a playable female character (yay, boobs). Other info we get is that there will be a new group of foe called the Lambert, and they are tentacle creatures that evolves while you fight them. They seem to be an enemy to the Locust as well so who knows if there is some twist in teaming up with the Locust.
The game is set to be release April 5th, 2011 and if you can’t wait, well seems like there will be novels that will fill in the time gaps and also introduce the Lambert and hey, you’ll get some Gears 3 stuff for your avatar soon. In the mean time, check out the trailer, titled Ashes to Ashes, after the jump as I believe it captures the feeling of the Gear’s 1 Mad World trailer.
*Update:* Cliff Bleszinski, the man that brought us the Gears franchise, just announced on his Twitter that Gears of War 3 will have a 4 Player integrated Co-op for story mode.
