IGN: NYCC 09: Gears of War Prequel Talk

It seemed like one of those fan questions that Joshua Ortega, the writer of Gears of War 2, would dance around during tonight's New York Comic-Con Gears of War panel -- were there plans for doing a prequel that dealt with the events of E-Day, the day the Locust emerged and attacked the human race?

Wait a minute I hinted at this like after Gears 1 hit and having Mr Feenix's father as a usable character...

Edit: I should have gotten a patent..

I can't stress this enough...'s "should HAVE", not "should of".

I'm just sad that the public school system has failed you.

(+20 Rad Resistance for anyone that can name the show that's from.)

Maybe even Should've sometimes.
