2. Local Co-Op Returns
Look, some people say local co-op is on its way out. I beg to differ. Local co-op is a huge deal to me personally, and talking away to someone online just isn't the same as being able to share the game experience with someone right next to me. While game series like Resistance have been eschewing the local co-op feature, Gears 3 is not only incorporating local co-op, but treating it as the headlining feature it should be. Oh, and you can also play with up to four people locally for the first time in the series' history. How cool is that?
1. Not the Same Old Gears
It's easy for sequels to get stuck in the "lather, rinse, repeat" rut: change the setting, give the good guys some new dialog, put a big baddie at the end, and ship the game. However, Gears of War 3 won't be just the same old game. You've got new guns and a brand new mech-style suit of armor. (Think Gears-meets-Gundam.) Will the core experience still be about shooting Locust? Yes. But Gears of War 3 will truly be an evolutionary leap for the series, which is certainly an exciting prospect in a genre that is full of stagnation.
Gears of War 3 is going to be coming exclusively to the Xbox 360 this September. Though we're excited for this game, there are plenty of other games coming this fall you should be excited for. Check back next week for more Why You Should!
