252w ago - I don't know how many times it has to be repeated, reiterated, redundantly reinforced and repetitively reproached, but gamers really, really need to understand that despite the hype, despite the news, despite whatever they hear or read from anyone else, GOW 3 is not coming to the PS3.
The rumors have been put out there but they also need to be squashed, and TheGameReviews has aptly done so.
There was a lot of talk about Gears of War 3 coming to the PlayStation 3 ever since the Gears of War 2 writer, Joshua Ortega mentioned that the Gears of War series could expand as a video game franchise for about ten years. Sony often says the same thing about the PlayStation brand, which started the rumor that Gears of War 3 was coming to the PS3.
Just like God of War - and how Sony owns the rights to it as trademarked property and that means it won't be appearing on the Xbox 360 - so the same applies to Gears of War and Microsoft ensuring that it will never appear on the PlayStation 3.
Added to this, the rumor killer above pretty much lays out why Gears 3 won't be coming to the PS3. Besides, the only way it would happen is if Microsoft forfeited...
253w ago - I'll make this abundantly clear off the bat: despite some of the more significant technical glitches in Gears of War 2, it was easily one of the best games of 2008 and certainly one of the best of the generation.
However, I found Uncharted: Drake's Fortune to be a cleaner, and ultimately more entertaining, production. Yes, I'm talking about the first Uncharted and the most recent Gears.
Considering that it's silly to compare either Resistance 2 or Killzone 2 to Gears, the closest PlayStation 3-exclusive competitor is Naughty Dog's new series... and in all honesty, I see Uncharted eventually surpassing Epic's series in terms of overall quality and fun factor (yes, I'm aware the latter is subjective).
Even though there was plenty of critical acclaim and the game sold very well, I still think Drake's Fortune is one of the most overlooked titles of the generation. This is due to a number of factors: first, the PS3 had been out for only a year - and a rough year at that - when the game launched, and it simply didn't reach a very large audience. Second, it wasn't an established franchise and typically, IPs don't fare as well as hotly anticipated sequels.
Third, Sony's bad marketing and promotion left Uncharted out in the cold, but we're starting to see a reversal in that lagging advertising,...
254w ago - Movie director Len Wisemen has revealed that he will be writing a Gears of War movie, and even has plans to make it into a trilogy.
To quote: Bloody-Disgusting.com recently caught up with Die Hard 4.0 director Len Wisemen at the premiere of Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, a movie which Wiseman produced.
Speaking to the horror movie Web site, Wiseman revealed that he will be directing a Gears of War movie, which he is co-writing with Chris Morgan (Wanted, Fast and the Furious) and admitted he bought an Xbox 360 to play Gears of War.
"I suck at video games, it just takes me too long and I can't get the coordination of 'em. When I was on Die Hard, I had to choose some video game for the background in a scene with Kevin Smith.
I was shown about a dozen games and told to 'choose one to be in the background' and I said 'this one looks really, really cool whatever it is,' and it was Gears Of War," said Wiseman.
"I just really connected with it; the design of it the world, the whole thing. So I actually bought an Xbox 360 to start researching what it was."

260w ago - A rather frustrating game ending glitch has been found in Left 4 Dead on the Xbox 360. It essentially ruins to the game, just skip to about 4:30 on the first video below to view the glitched part.
Additionally, gamers are complaining that Gears of War 2 should have had more testing on it prior to release due to the glitch in the second video below.

From the video captions respectively:
Ok my team and I were coming up in the elevator in the hospital and when the elevator door opened this electrical box wagon thing was blocking our way, we don't know how this happend (maybe the zombies may had moved it?), but we eventually got out cause this zombie moved it (lol).
We also had a forklift blocking our way at the construction site and we were like "WTF!", but we went around (That was some crazy stuff though).
It's just ridiculous for a game based on cover system, that's a huge issue... EPIC FAIL!
