Gears Of War 3 Wish List

Unofficially announced on the 9th April and expected to be officially announced in the next 24 hours or so, Gears Of War 3 will conclude the trilogy for Marcus Fenix and his battle against the Locust hordes.

Gears of war 2 actually raised more questions than answers as far as the storyline goes and with matchmaking issues upon release, fans of the series will have a long wish list for the third game in the series.

So to start the P*N hype machine in anticipation for Gears of War 3, here are some of our wishes for it.

Gears of War 3

[12th April UPDATE] Give us 3D. It’s the 3rd in the series and this time next year, 3D TVs will be less expensive and more people will have them. Give us the option to play in 3D [UPDATE]

More than 2 player co-op. 4 player co-op seems to be the standard these days and although I’m set in my ways and prefer the story driven single player mode of any game, I’d be lying if I said that having a human companion playing it with you isn’t better than simply computer AI.  Couple this with the fact that for large parts of the previous 2 games, Marcus has had 3 fellow COGs to keep him company, it makes sense that Epic should make 4 player co-op a possibility.

Drop-in, drop-out co-op. Crackdown for me set the standard for story co-op play in regards to the way that anyone could drop in at anytime to join in your game. Lets make sure Gears of War 3 has this.

Destructible cover. OK so yes we had this in Gears 1 but surely anyone who hides behind a sofa (settee) should expect it to offer limited cover, but some of the weapons on display should be able to destroy any cover you try to hide behind.

Linear paths. Don’t stray too far from what has proven successful in the two previous games.  Scripted sequences are part of what has appealed to the many Gears fans. The game is big, loud and at times just plain stupid but this is part of its appeal.

Story line. For Gods sake, please tie up the many loose ends left after the second game and please do not fall into the same trap as The Matrix trilogy which ended up spoiling the memory of the first film.

Bright Environments. Any chance of using a different color than brown, Epic?

Matchmaking. Just make it work out of the box this time around.

Finally, one of the rumors doing the rounds on the internet is that there may be an underwater level. I plead and beg with Epic to remove it now if they are planning one. Ever since the underwater levels in Sonic I have hated them.

    I think gears of war 3 should include 2 major features to the series from their on. 3D, as 3D TV’s are now for sale, and a map editor and editing community for console gamers just like Gears of War 1 has on PC, and Farcry 2 did for their console version. Crysis 2 is releasing their first console game this Christmas for consoles and PC and will give all developers a run for their money. Check out the videos for Crysis 2 on Youtube. They also have an award winning game writer this time around.

    3D is a great shout and I love the idea of it. yes Gears 3, needs it. 3DTV will be more common this time next year as well. Gears Of War 3D !! I may start that rumour 🙂

    5 player co op, female cogs, adam fenix, new locust, more executions, more cog characters like in the comics, new weapons, brighter environments, make the campaign longer…we want more gears!!!! how about a “create a cog” feature… how about making clay carmine a beast, instead of someone who is expected to die! lol

    how about making this gears installment more of a war! instead of a strategy….bring all the cogs in, and make parts of the campaign like a horde and lets go into beast mode!!! lets fight the locust queen (who i believe is marcus fenix”s mother) and see what shes about. where are the berserkers at? in the comics, they were used for birthing locust, so they are obviously females…explain how the whole war started, and the origins of the locust. tell all the cogs stories…who they are and where they come from! okay i think im done..
