Are there any other game play videos? I'm wondering if Mad World is exclusive to Gridlock since it's from the first game.

No idea, but you could always make a custom Gears playlist on your Xbox.

I know it's not the same, but still...

Damn, people are getting the game this early!?

I gotta start calling the local mom & pop shops to see if they'll have an early release.

Clicked on that link you posted just 2 minutes ago, read a few pages of complaints, and then it was deleted by the moderators there.

That's never a good sign.

No there was a screen where you pick your gun skin, all the little squares showing each skin pattern. For most of them they had a little $ in a circle like you could actually go to the marketplace and buy them. I dont think the beta skins had them, but the rest did.

So it seems that Adam Fenix comes with the Infected Omen skin pack. There's no different file download between the controller and the Epic or Console editions.

You also have to pay for the remaining weapon skins.

This really is lame. I can't believe how much content they really are withholding, and, again, people are just accepting it.

Wow WTF thats very disappointing. I asked Rod if they would be included with the season pass, which i think they should be. If not then Fuck them im not going to buy skins for a fucking gun. Talk about trying to nickle and dime everyone. Ill just use my gold, flame, infected omen, liquid metal, or regular skins.

Update: they wont be included in the season pass. But there will be a cheaper bulk package with them all ready for purchase day 1.... smh

The adam f. Code is not with the IO weapon skins dlc. The code for him will be on the cog that comes inside the LE & EE. The Console will just have another code inside the game as u saw it when Ice-T opend his game up u could see the adam f. Card inside. Gears of war 3 skins will be cheap anyway. U don't have to buy them u know!

Ever since horse armor, I've never understood paying real money for what amounts to a different texture, or getting all worked up over it.

Wow. They definitely have some nerve pulling a stunt like this but we're to blame for allowing it to happen. I should have saw this coming considering how many gamers cover the cost of these games by selling the DLC. Hopefully if enough people bitch they give us a few free. Otherwise I'll have to take a good look at the entire set before biting down on any sort of price. If it's reasonably low though I might just say f*ck it and take the hit. I love Gears. Unfortunately I can't imagine it not floating somewhere between the 560 - 800 ranges considering the number and hype surrounding them. We really need to put our foot down as consumers and not support this type of bullshit. I think I'm just going to wait to see how this plays out.

Thrust: Come on man. You know the reason people are upset is because they are deliberately withholding launch content for nickle and diming purposes. It's been the primary nagging suspicion behind the very existence of DLC. There's nothing wrong with being angry about paying to download an unlock key for on disc content. We however still shoulder much of the blame for how the market is today and since no one is forcing us to buy any of it we can't put it all back on the developers. Not much is going to change though when we're outnumbered 1 to 1,000 so it's either put up or shut up. ;\

 

Stop trying to Scooby-Doo this. We're not going to solve this mystery for you.

I understand the rage over withholding actual game content i.e. levels, maps, weapons.

But I don't really understand A) This degree excitement over what amounts to new texture art or B) The rage that you have to pay for it to get it.

It would be the same if they came out with new sound banks for each character in multiplayer, so they say new and different things during battle. That has no value to me and I would laugh at their attempt to sell it. However, I guess it makes an alright bonus for a pre-order.

I suppose, at this point, they can come up with any new art assets that don't affect gameplay a lick and the vain nerds (no insult intended) will lock onto it like a pack of piranha.

30$ out the gate just to play with characters that were confirmed to be on launch. Gotta love the epidemic of DLC but oh well not much you can do if you want to play with those character/maps.

The problem, specifically in this case, is the amount of time Epic has had working on this game. It was supposed to launch in March. They had an extra 6 months to "polish," so I expect the game to be perfect at this point. This is supposed to be the end of the trilogy, yet they're holding back single player content for DLC. You would think the "Season Pass" would include this character/weapon DLC, but it doesn't. This is going to be separate from it altogether. Characters that were available in Gears 1/2 are now DLC only? I don't happen to care about the characters missing as I didn't use them, but I have friends that did. I'd be pissed off if I wasn't able to pick Carmine from Gears 1. On top of all that, Gears 3 is shipping with significantly less maps than Gears 2. I guess a flashback map pack could be announced, but I highly doubt it'll be free this time around if it is. They gotta pay for those dedicated servers somehow, I guess. I guarantee the servers are fucked up in some way off and on for at least a week, if not longer, too.


That's my take on it, anyway. It's bullshit, especially for Epic, who used to be better than all this.
