Awesome cole train
Yes, Gears 3 will end the fanboy war.
The console war ended with MGS4...
Comments like that are what flame the fires within fanboys, don't be so daft. Both consoles have good games, both have bad. THE END.
I don't understand what the problem with it is.
I know. Isn't Cole supposed to be a successful, black athlete? I don't see how it's disgusting or exploitative and I'm black.
It's not, At least I agree with you that I don't see the problem. Its just another website that likes to post drama to get hits.
He kinda looks white...
That's how athletes dress. They are flashy. I am a brother myself and see no problems with it.
Blablalblbla stereotypes... The skin is F'ing awesome. End of discussion!
Someone needs to relized that they are not the center of the universe and that some people will think that the pimped out Cole is the best thing to ever happen in gears. I know that I think it's kinda cool but I'm no going to be using it.
Is there a problem so what if its a bit stereotype bling black guy you can even see the boxers :P. But come on that's why i love Gears the stereotype characters. Would love a mexican Dom with sumbrero or something just some funny outfits so i can annoy the haters. Saw a description of a Emulsion Raam you could see some organs and muscles being all nickelodeon slim glowy i would so totally buy Gears 3 for sure if that was in...
he looks different too,his skin looks much lighter
He finally showered.
well if there going full stereotypes i want Dom to be arrested for being illegal and for ruining the second game with his emoness
Is this article serious? I mean talk about making a mountain out of a molehill. Cole is Cole - he's cool, badass, and I can imagine him looking just like that before the Locust invasion spurred him to wear the COG armor. Its neither racist or insensitive. Exaggerated perhaps, but is this really such a big deal?
This screams of what is commonly referred to as "liberal guilt." Bunch of overly apologetic folks who leap at the opportunity to point out any sort of racial stereotyping so they can show how not-racist they are. And how they're totally down with it. And they have like TONNES of black friends who are all super nice.
Judging by my "background", I'd say your "assumption" on this article is completely wrong. ;)
so what I inferred from you is that liberals feel guilty for the awful and unconstitutional way African Americans were treated in this country before the civil rights movement. If I extrapolate further does that mean conservatives do not feel guilty, and in fact would be happy if they never had to deal with another black person?
@ stickskills: Apologies then, my bad :p @ redge: I think you've delved far too deeply into the terminology and also leapt to an unfair assumption. I did not coin the term "liberal guilt", nor have I defended it's etymology. I've merely pointed out that the author may have exaggerated the implications of the use of stereotypical imagery, when in fact, he likely has not and is merely sharing his concerns. I do not, however, appreciate being patronized or proselytized to by those who are so quick to judge.
Thats a really terrible skin, it doesn't fit in with the gears of war universe at all. why the hell would he be dressed like that when all the cities on Sera have been destroyed and the human race is now on the brink of extinction? I know its a multiplayer skin but it still sticks out like a sore thumb.
There are plenty of instances of this in gaming, no one's ever gotten upset before and I don't see why they should now. For instance, why would Spiderman ever use a skateboard? Why would Solid Snake wear a bright red bandanna whilst on a stealth mission? It doesn't have to make sense, it's just for fun.
There's more to come. Wait until people see the mutators in Gears 3. I don't even think I'm ready for them.
mutatorss?? holy shit that would sickk. That would mean you'd be able to play custom games like halo. Why wouldn'tttt you want them?
Is the writer white perhaps. http://stuffwhitepeoplelike...
Cole looks badass and this article is stupid.
April Fools joke perhaps...
Loving the new skin...can't wait to "get back in tha game"!!!
that skin is freaken pimp. cole is my fav character and ill be using this all day lol.
Cole has tiger blood!
I like it when they change up characters makes me laugh when kids bitch about there fav game character getting a celeb make over .
its childish to be Upset by this, @ authors of article.
