More Gears 3 Rumors *update* Drops 4/2011

We some Gears of War junkies round these parts….so when rumors for the next in the series pops up, roll dog drooling comes with the territory. Anyways, as my homie Jamie reported on awhile back, Unreal Engine 3 has been updated once again, this time allowing for some greener graphics. So, instead of staring at awesome lookin rocky vistas all the time, we might get some jungle style environments this time.

Not only that, rumors of underwater levels are starting to sneak around the water cooler. If we get said levels, for the love of god, please….DON’T SUCK! That’s just been our experience around here, everytime a great game decides to throw you into the depths for a level or two, they just muck up the works(see Kameo, and pretty much any Mario title). Anyways, here’s some of rumors courtesy of 1up and Kotaku.

“The first two Gears of War titles are known for their brown-gray color palettes, but the third edition apparently looks to be set during the summer. That means underwater locations, and potentially jungle and other foliage heavy locations as well.

The Locusts will be getting another upgrade as well, this time being able to use tentacles to knock players from cover. To counter, the protagonists will be outfitted with special explosives that can travel beneath the ground to enemy locations, as well as a heavy duty mech suit.”

*Update*

On what? Kotaku reporting on the Xbox Live interface spilling the beans early, that’s what. Well, no details yet, but the rumored date is confirmed. Gears of War 3, Xbox360, April 2011….gotta wait a whole year, dayum :-\

Starcraft 2 Collectors edition (or how I learned to make an investment on ebay)

If you end up buying the StarCraft 2 collectors edition you’ll be in line for a In Game Pet for …World of Warcraft. Okkkkkaaaay. Gee. Thanks. How about for SC instead? How About you let me axe you a question with THOR MY IN GAME PET?

Overall I wont say the collectors edition brings you anything of value other than the hope that you can sell it 5-10 years later on ebay. I kind of wish I did this with Burning Crusade or Even with Wrath of the Lich King. Go on say it. You know you want to.
I’ll say it.
