The Second String Gamble: Can Baird Carry GoW: Judgment?

Gi - Spin-offs are dangerous territory. With predominantly low success rates across the board, the highlighted trials and tribulations of supporting casts-turned-protagonists have never seemed to be enough in the entertainment world. And it makes sense. They’re called “support” characters for a reason. Their job is to help carry the emotional conflicts of the heroes and story, to add a second layer of complexity (i.e. humor or intensity or ennui) to the bones that have been already placed. (Gears of War Judgment, Xbox 360)
