    [​IMG] Gears of War 3 comes out in three days. Marcus Fenix and crew return to the fight with hot four player action (in co-op), Beast mode, Horde 2.0, and arcade campaign and all the content you can shake a stick at. Is it worth scrambling out to the store at midnight to secure your copy, playing it all night long and being a zombie for work the next day?

    Read on to our full review to find out!

    Cool beans man, can't wait to pick it up on my return trip wednesday :F

    Also, rather sad that I'm probably going to be swamped with work and schoolwork.

    I'm liking what I'm hearing :)

    How do you know if the XBOX Live matchmaking issues are sorted out, though? I imagine that there couldn't be too much load on the system yet with only the special few who have early access being able to play it.

    I don't "know" I suppose, but the matchmaking works a lot faster than it did before. Also, in-game the lag wasn't nearly as noticeable as I've seen it in Gears 2, with some games being completely unplayable. Of course, I'm sure there are only a hundred people on there at the moment so we will see.

    Poop_Bruzz, which did you choose.

    Gears or War? There can be only one.

    Very nice review and well written! I do like it! However, I would love to have all three Gears Of War games for PC, especially by the fact, that I loved playing Gears Of War, but now I hate the fact that it doesn't work anymore on PC.

    Oh gosh, please Epic Games, where is the PC version?!

    I would also love to have the other Gears games on Windows.

    I had a really good time with the first, and feel cheated on the sequels.

    Why does Microsoft hate people that use their products?

    Really?! Some weeks ago, I wanted to install Gears Of War again, but something went wrong. During the installation, I wasn't asked for the CD key and when I wanted to run the game, I always got a error message.

    That's because you have to manually apply the last Title Update to fix a certificate issue with the game.

    The CD key is entered inside the game.

    Pretty sure all matchmaking games are run on dedicated servers, so that helps.

    ^This. Also aren't five coop players supported in this (at least in Horde/Beast)?
