P*N New This Week: 18th September 2011

Welcome to Platform Nation’s New This Week, where we inform you, the reader, on all of the game releases you should be looking out for.

My pick for this week is:

Gears of War 3:

Gears of War 3 starts eighteen months after the fall of Jacinto, the survivors of Jacinto moved to the island of Vectes to rebuild. After a generally quiet period, the Imulsion infected Lambent began to emerge from the ground. Hiding something, the COG head of state, Chairman Prescott, abandoned the COG. Now leaderless and being forced off the island, the COG disbands and separates to the safest places left. Victor Hoffman takes some survivors to Anvil Gate while Delta squad sets off on the “Raven’s Nest” naval ship with the remaining humans to avoid further Lambent incursion. While on the Raven’s Nest, Marcus learns from Prescott that his father is still alive, and they must journey to find him on a hint that he has found a way to help save humanity.

My View: I am so excited for this game, it looks just as insane as the previous games. Not only do you get 4 person co-op, but the scale of the game looks so huge. With all of the new lambent enemies and a continuation of the amazing story from GoW2, I’m really looking forward to playing through this game. On top of this, you have the multiplayer mode that is going to keep me hooked to this game for months.
