Stone-cold ashes

Big, big news at Xbox 360 front has been the announcement of Gears of War 3 and its teaser trailer. Gosh! The game originally aimed at the next generation of consoles must look liek teh awesomest thing evah!1tm

The trailer starts with vaguely Silent Hill-ish song playing over sombre images of people burned to ashes in their standstill. But the whole scene breaks apart when the first orc whatever hits the picture and growls at the camera. And then the gears with their hulking Wildstorm comic book physiques and faces step out of the shadows. And gosh my ass, it doesn't look any better than Gears of War 2. The game is scheduled for April 2011. Why does it look so old then? And probably plays the same. Theoretically plays okay but defines the terms seen it all, played it all, bored of it all...

 The scene killing orc makes an entrance.
