More Epic Than Epic: What We Want From The Next Gears Of War

Dealspwn writes: "Every death, every twist, every hard-won battle and every sacrifice in the Gears Of War canon harks back to a single pivotal event in Sera's history: Emergence Day. The Locust blitzkrieg changed everything, yet the games have proved surprisingly reluctant to actually show it to us beyond a couple of brief cutscenes. Even Judgment chickened out, opting to set its campaign after this all-important conflict. It's high time we experienced E-Day in all its savage and desperate glory, seeing how the pristine cities of Sera became the charred rubble we've seen in game after game, as massive sinkholes open up beneath the gathered COG war machine."

Scrapping all of the new mechanics and gameplay changes that judgement introduced would be a nice start.

Blues Cowboy826d ago (Edited 826d ago )

Agreed, but I think that's pretty much a given. Judgment was very much a spinoff, so I doubt its Angry Birds-esque extra features will make it into the core series.

Though, erm, hopefully this doesn't mean that Gears of War Exile comes back now that Kinect is a bit more precise...

aviator189826d ago (Edited 826d ago )

Oh man, that would be terrible.
I'm fine with kinect supplementing the full non-kinect, traditional experience, but I do not want kinect to significantly intersect with the newer games.

And with the way Fable Journey sold, I suspect ms has learned its lesson regarding attaching a full kinect experience to their major franchises.

I would love to have the option to do the chainsaw motions with kinect. Overall just bring me traditional GOW gameplay with a new story. The story should take place after the "supposed" death of the queen. No prequels, many years should have passed and the locust have been forming a new army on a new world, something along those lines would be great.

Gears will look amazing on Xbox One! its a good day for Xbox Fans.

ramiuk1826d ago

gears 1,2,3 was great.
didnt like last one,i kinda think its ran its course.

Excalibur826d ago (Edited 826d ago )

Personally I'd like to see a re-boot starting with the Pendulum Wars and a younger Hoffman, Mataki, Adam Fenix and Helena Stroud, maybe 3/4 into the game we are introduced a young Marcus Fenix and Carlos Santiago (older brother of Dom).

The next game could be all about E-day and the games after that would fill in the 10 year gap between E-day and Gears 1.

I don't want Kinect anywhere near Gears.

Also as I said in another post, what make a few folks think that the next Gears game would be exclusive to the Xbox One?
Microsoft would be foolish to exclude 80+ million Xbox 360 users.

Blues Cowboy826d ago

I'd play that.

I'd play that hard.

In all seriousness, though, the Pendulum/E Day setting would be excellent, and a real contrast to everything we've seen before. Bigger battles, and a look at the COG in their glory days.

Deadpool101826d ago

My main grievance with Judgment was the lack of multi player stuff included when compared to the previous game. So as long as they pack plenty of modes, skins and, most importantly for me, maps in the game (and not save them for dlc) I'll be happy.

MilkMan826d ago

Nothing really. I just wanted to remember it as a 360 series that was very cool. Not rehashed and folded into Xbox One.

Axios2826d ago

So nothing from last gen should carry over?

No Uncharted?
No KZ?
No Halo?

MilkMan826d ago

Look, Id rather new games with the OCCASIONAL, far in-between remaster or true sequel from last gen. But what was the point of all this next gen hoopla if we playing the same thing?

Lets do new thing or at least, lets do new things FIRST.

Blues Cowboy826d ago (Edited 826d ago )

TBH I love the sentiment. We were excited about NEW games at the start of the last generation - ironically, like the revolutionary "Gears Of War" that everyone was talking about. Not sequels.

However, I'm a weak human being, and I'd... rather like some more Gears etc. Like comfort food, perhaps.
