Gears of War Xbox ONE Possibilities – GoW 4… Or Something Else?

gears of war xbox one

Something that many Gears fans might not know is that in all actuality, the humans in the Gears Of War franchise are considered to be “the bad guys” by the majority of beings found in the game. This is shown after they’ve destroyed everything, at the end of Gears 3, and the Locust Queen basically calls all of mankind ‘villains’ while providing some supportive reasons as to why. Personally, I don’t think Marcus and the crew are exactly “bad”, but the majority of the human race? Yes, for sure.

Now a new Gears Of War is headed our way as Microsoft has acquired the rights to the franchise and plan to do something with it for their next-generation Xbox ONE console. A year after the Locust came up, 90% of the planet was destroyed and 80% of the human population destroyed even themselves, which explains all the dust people and why some view the humans as savage and irrational. The COG also knew the locust were going to invade for years because of the lambent, but this destruction came from their own technology.

Gears of War: Judgment’s story is Baird’s own personal story, it’s not the big picture as shown in the trilogy. Gears Of War on Xbox ONE could potentially explore the possibility that the Locust are not really good guys, they captured humans, beat them, raped them, ate them, and more. But they aren’t totally in the wrong either; the humans are really bad to each other and other species as well. So it’s like two dirt bag species just fighting each other without much gain on either end, just destruction for all. Eventually this has to be explained in the franchise, or come to a point where things boil over – or even less likely, change.

Gears Of War 4 Xbone

Halo is kind of like that too in some ways, and this has been addressed in their plot lines throughout the series as well. This series could end up being used as a guide for how to create the Xbox ONE plot lines for the Gears Of War games coming up, either way there are definitely lessons to learn from how Bungie and 343i handled things.

In Halo 4 the Didact hates humans for many reasons and wants to enslave them all and turn them into his Promethean knights. Master Chief stops him because – let’s be honest he doesn’t do anything else. When you really think about it, Master Chief is an extremely flawed character who was captured by the human government, tortured, turned into a super human through agonizing treatments, brainwashed to be a sociopath and psychopath killing machine (sound familiar), and then finally gains feelings at the end of Halo 4 for Cortana but doesn’t understand them

Humans in Halo after Halo 3 are becoming more like humans in Gears; arrogant and cruel. One big conflict (the Covenant) brought them together for a while but the writing on the wall spells out ‘it won’t last forever’.

Gears Of War on Xbox ONE could possibly be a legit and essential Gears Of War 4 entry in the series. Due to a character in Gears 3 called Aaron Griffon, a former billionaire who made his money off of the same stuff that made everyone lambent, having created his own small society when Marcus and crew showed up then they all died. Aaron obviously hated the COG for what they did to the planet. He told Fenix they would settle this again someday and flipped him off. He said no matter where the COG go and what they do the leave a trail of death.

All of this gives plenty of motive for this character to possibly become either a new villain for the series or a rebel hero archetype, as well as provide enough exhilarating events to propel the series forward beyond the so-called end that players were prevented with in GoW 3. Some Locust may have survived the extinction event that was caused at the end of Gears 3, but if Locust is exclusively what GoW 4 has to offer we could all end up very disappointed. It seems that past themes and influences will be in place but as a background fixture to keep the core essence of the franchise alive. The other possibility is that Microsoft and their development studio could go the Prequel route with a game about the war before E-day, or even another event during the COG War possibly providing an open world / MMO style of game pitting players as Locust and COG.

Everything remains to be seen, and feel free to voice your opinions / predictions / fan requests for the game companies developing the next Gears Of War games to consider.

Driveclub [PS4 Exclusive] Animated Teaser Images Released By Evolution

Driveclub PS4 Exclusive Racing

The following animated images have been released by PlayStation Exclusive Devs Evolution who have taken a quick snapshot for the world to see their progress in the game. This is only a GIF so of course the actual visual quality of the game is not coming across in these images but rather the level design which Evolution has stated is true to life for every location. Ubisoft’s The Crew sets to conquer a similar presentation but with more liberty taken rather than complete life-like level design. Of course the future remains to be seen for both titles in the end. ***NOTE: These will load in what appears to be slow motion the first time but refreshing will play everything your PC managed to load at normal speed.

Driveclub releases for PlayStation 4 some time in “Early 2014” (release date pending) with developer Evolution behind the wheel, also known as the folks who brought you the MotorStorm series. Sony Computer Entertainment is publishing this next-gen racing game which falls exclusively on the PS4 and PlayStation Plus members will be able to play a version called “Driveclub PS+ Edition” for free when it launches with a standalone full retail title will also release.

Tristan’s Christmas Shopping Guide For Gamers

1476515_436093866490818_896999654_n

Some titles and systems should be on the top of people’s list this holiday but everyone is different what you like or don’t like someone else may have a different idea. But I am here to help with that.

Console Choice: If you’re a parent looking for something for your young kids it’s best to pick up a Wii U or a Wii since it’s cheaper but PS4 would be the ultimate for them due to all of the cool indies. If you’re really into online gaming or someone you know is Xbox ONE is probably the best choice unless you’re looking to save money than get PS3 because the online multiplayer is free. If you’re just looking for a better experience and money saved then you get a PS4 with a camera.

Online Game: The first choice if you’re looking for some fun easy jump in, jump out of gaming or something for your kid in high school then Call of Duty Ghosts is a good choice. If you’re looking for something new to try in huge look of things Guild Wars 2 is a good buy. A good Christmas game for next gen could be Killzone: Shadow Fall or Dead Rising 3 for some co op fun. GTA V is a must have regardless. Even the online is worth it.

Best Overall Game: GTA V of course again, The Last of Us, Super Mario 3D World, and a few others but remember this; we need a lot of Christmas spirit.
