Maniac and diskreader117 Play Gears of War 3 Beta April 19, 2011

Posted by Maniac in Site Videos.

It’s time for another match of Team Deathmatch on Thrashball.  This time, Maniac is joined by diskreader117 in this video, a person who has not played a single Gears of War game in his life.

The controller switches hands a few times, but you can hear both of our comments.  As you can see, it is EXTREMELY difficult for a person completely unfamilar with Gears of War’s controls to get a handle on this game, and most attacks that will cause death in this game will usually happen instananously, making conventional machine gun attacks impractical.

We still won the game, overall, but that was probably more due to us being matchmade with a better team, and for the fact I made a consious effort to not get killed, since I knew that killing enemies the way I wanted to (with stop and pop) was just not going to happen.

Of course this is still a beta, and the weapons all have time to be tuned before the game ships in September.  If you got a copy of Bulletstorm feel free to join the party and unlock everything you can.  If you had just preordered the game, your codes won’t be active until the 25th.

Gears of War 3 will release September 2011 exclusive to the Xbox 360.
