I actually can't believe how popular Portal is. It came with the Orange Box for me when I purchased it for the PC and I haven't finished it. Still hard for me to get into but I guess one of these days I'll go back and beat it.

Back on topic. PUMPED about this game and Gears of War was THEE only reason why I purchased a 360. Now I'm kind of pissed that they would announce this game so far ahead (remember the CliffyB on The Late Night with Jimmy Fallon?) then delay. I'm with a lot of the press for video game journalist that are stating that video game developers should just not even bother with announcing a release date till you far firm with it. It just pissy off the rabid fanbase when you push it back.

Oh my god, and I thought the executions in Gears 2 were rediculous. They made them even more brutal and graphic....can't wait till next fall....

Who wouldn't want to test that out? Microsoft today announced that the Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta will start in mid-April -- presumably for early-access Bulletstorm owners. The public tryout will feature three, "new" versus modes and four maps (to be decided by a community vote this month). No end date for the beta was given.

Voting for the beta maps opens today on the Gears of War Facebook page and ends Monday, February 28.

Alright, I LOVED the first Gears of War game, I can't count the number of multiplayer matches I played with my friends. I was so excited and then horribly let down by Gears 2. The too over the top gameplay, extremely buggy multiplayer, and lack of unranked public matches really irked me, which lead to me selling the game off pretty quickly.

I'm hoping that Epic learned their lesson and has "fixed" it with Gears 3. On Saturday I went ahead and swung by Gamestop to pre-order so I could get into the beta. I'll probably cancel it either way, if it sucks I won't buy it, if it's good I'll get it from Amazon. I hate that the beta is a Gamestop exclusive though.

Who else is betaing-it?

I hated playing ranked in Gears 1 or 2, Gears 1 had the public lobbies that you could start with your friends and anyone could join afterwards. The fact that they made it private so the starting group could play killed Gears 2, I want it to be like the original. That's how I met pretty much all of my early Xbox friends.

Sorry, late to the party. Is the beta already out? Would it be to late to pre-order and join in?

Beta starts on the 25th, you've got plenty of time to get it ordered.

Same feelings. I used to play private matches with a group of friends one or two nights a week with Gears 1. It was a lot of of fun. GOW 2 was alright, I had some fun with horde mode, but I didn't play it for long.

I should have the beta this Friday the 15th, but we'll see. It'll be the 18th at the latest with the people who bought bulletstorm.

The other way to get onto the Beta is by getting bulletstorm. I really like bulletstorm as a game in itself, so if you can find it cheap, its worth picking up. It has the EA online pass stuff, so I am not sure what would happen if you get a used copy.

Also the Beta for Bulletstorm owners starts 1 week earlier (April 18th I believe).

So you Bulletstorm folk get access come this Monday I hear? I expect initial impressions! I used to be quite good at Gears 1 but considering it's been what, almost 4 years since I've played it to any amount, I'm probably going to be awful.

Correct. Those who purchased the Bulletstorm epic edition can get into the beta earlier on 04/18. I like Bulletstorm as well and I am looking forward to the Gears beta.

Preliminary Report.

There are 3 game modes, Team deathmatch, Capture the leader, and king of the hill for both public and ranked matches.

You can start with the lancer, hammerburst, or retro lancer in slot 1. And the sawed-off or the gnasher for slot 2.

You have Marcus and Dominic available for the cog side. Anya Stroud, Cole, Damon, and Cole Train are unlockable by completing so many matches. There are two available characters and 3 unlocks on the drone side.

There are 4 maps. The arena is a shotgun fest. Other than that the game plays solid and I'm pretty terrible so far.

Sweet, keep us posted Monger!

Oh, how big is the download? How's the latency (one of my biggest gripes with Gears 2)?
