Epic Deceit: The Half-Truths Used to Sell Gears of War 3

Bobby Rivera writes, "To be perfectly blunt, I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with CiffyB's Gears of War franchise.

Never got into gears tbh. Played the 2nd and beat it but the character models just look so strange and out of proportion and it bothers me.

"...character models just look so strange..."

Yeah. You can't tell the difference between the guy characters and the girl characters in Gears 3 at all.

I agree man, I really liked the firsts multi, sure it had issues, but it was fucking fun. Gears 2 had issues and even when it worked it wasn't that fun.
