How Epic is making Gears of War 3 casual-friendly

OXM UK: "Gears of War 3 is all about the three "As" - Action, Accessibility and, um, Adding Cool Stuff. We've covered parts one and three in our beta multiplayer and Horde Mode 2.0 write-ups; now it's time for the central pillar, the ever controversial matter of making a game pick-up-and-playable."

The story is too old to be commented.

Casual-friendly =/= hardcore-unfriendly.

It's all about giving the player choice.

actually if its about MP it is casual friendly = hardcore unfriendly

there is no gameplay choice we all play the same game.. if its easier for casual its a lot more easier for hardcore players.

Judging by the stuff mentioned in the article, it seems hardcore players won't really gain much benefit... unless if they stoop down to the auto-aim playlists.

Ah, so shotgun + no boss battles + cover system + competing over a steady connection = casual game.

I hope they take auto aim centering off it's when you move forward your aim automatically moves to the center of the screen I hated that in Gears 2 it makes the game take less skill

I used to be a casual online Gears player, glad they are doing more to expand the Gears audience. Now of course I look at playing Gears online as the ultimate in hardcore, those people play for keeps.

Yet more games catering for the 'NOOB' gamer *rolls eyes*.

Games are getting too easy and too short, back in the day of the Commodore 64 it wasn't as easy as it is today to start playing a game or even finishing a game! But no, nowadays they must cater for the little shits online that find every exploit and ruin the experience for everyone...
