OXM UK: Epic's Rod Fergusson has insisted that the inclusion of playable female characters in Gears of War 3 is more than a sop to female players. "We didn't change Gears of War to try to lure more female gamers".
I await the day when the sheer fact of putting women in a game won't be considered newsworthy...
. Gears is accommodating it's fan base which has female gamers. I don't get where there is an issue. I think Rods explanation says it all. GRAW 2 has female options as well. My only concern is if they are given perks like taken extra damage and such. Many GRAW 2 players used the female avatar's because they can take extra hits, not a good thing. They should be exactly the same save for appearance.
The fact that they felt the need to say this more then likely means they are lying their butts off & besides why wait until the third game to randomly add in a female character ? I have nothing against it but here actions speaks louder then words
I heard she gets special Rage powers once a month.
How is this NOT funny?!! lol bubbles up
there is a clan of female gears players who have been wanting a playable female gears character for a few years now. so I dont see how having a female character is pandering, I see it as listening to a section of your audience.
I always have preferred a Female protagonist. Lara Croft, Jill Valentine, Claire Redfield, etc etc.... When given the choice while creating a character I always create a female character a few examples would be FO3, FO: NV and WKC. So I like the idea of having a female character in the GeOW game. Hopefully she won't look like an over steroided hulk like the rest of the GeOW cast does. I personally hate that look.
Just what we need... Joanie Laurer in video games. *runs*
@Roper316 a quick search would answer your question
