Gears of War 3 Delayed – What a way to ruin your weekend

G4Tv has announced that Gears of War 3 has been Delayed. Bummer.   It’s not just a few months, rather it is a full year! The new release date for Gears of War 3 will be sometime in FALL 2011. >.< In a press release from Microsoft they go on to state:

“Gears of War 3 promises to be the biggest entertainment launch of 2011. The teams at Microsoft Game Studios and Epic Games have done great work thus far readying the title for release in the Spring of 2011. However, we’ve elected to move the launch of Gears of War 3 until Fall 2011 to make it the marquee title for the holiday season.”

It could be the marquee for national pants day – it doesnt matter. Gears is a HUGE franchise no matter when it’s released. I am hopeful that they’ll have more time to polish it’s playability. As Richie and I have said many times on the Podcast we appreciate the time it takes to release a game and it’s subsequent effort involved. Don’t RUSH IT. DON’T PANIC. Just please don’t release a 3d version of this game. Or something Kinect related. I’ll fucking vomit.

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.
