Good morning VGA readers. So Gears of War 3 was released on Tuesday so if you’ve been playing you know how awesome it is. I’ll admit I haven’t even played the regular campaign yet as I’m a multi-player addict. For those who like the online experience you can agree with me that the damn Lancer is just to darn strong, especially if it’s active-reloaded. Everyone is also finding the Sawed-Off Shotgun annoying but I love it, adds so much flavor to the game. Overall I think it’s a 9.5/10 in terms of what Gears of War fans want. It’s along the same lines of “darkness” as Gears 1. The online stlye is a little different though since you can’t go around being a hero with the shotgun or pulling crazy moves all the time, you really need to stick next to your teammates because it’s not an easy task to take on 3 guys as it was in the last two Gears. With that said here are some cool auctions:
First auction is for a Resistance: Fall of Man Jacket. We’ve seen a few jackets surface over the past few weeks from Resistance: Fall of Men. I guess collector’s are taking advantage of the new release. The seller states he/she won it in a tournament and it’s valued at $500. It’s a nice jacket with cool patches. Auction was submitted by Deborah(Thanks!)
