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.

Surprise Horror Game ‘Knock Knock’ is REAL LIFE CreepyPasta + Now Available on Steam [1080P HD Teaser Trailer]

Knock Knock Steam Game

Knock Knock is an eerie title that has arrived on Steam today for Mac OS X, Linux, and of course Windows PC which was allegedly developed based on a string of mysterious messages that were intercepted by Ice-Pick Lodge who just might be living out a real life version of CreepyPasta (the phenomenon we dare not explain, but Google it if you don’t already have enough demons in your life 😉 ). In the following Full 1080P High Definition Teaser Trailer we are presented with the first peak at what the end result of this spiritually dangerous game development experience has become. Scroll below the video for a look into the lore and concepts behind the title which is now available for 15% off until October 11th after successfully being green-lit by the Steam community.

Excerpt from today’s Official Press Release by Ice Pick Lodge:

“Game Concept

A wooden house stands in the forest. A single man lives there.

The house receives visits from unusual guests that knock on the window inviting this strange hermit to join them in a game of hide-and-seek. To win, simply remain alive and maintain your sanity until sunrise. Approaching the Visitors head-on is a dangerous idea.

As soon as the first Visitor emerges from the forest, the countdown begins. Every passing hour brings them closer to the house, and the house’s walls offer no sanctuary. Something is already inside. Something is opening the window and banging around in the kitchen. Something controls the cellar and attic. Floorboards creak softly deep in the bowels of the house.

Knock Knock Ice Pick Lodge

The Visitors are well aware of your position, so you must make your rounds of the house and find the breaches that let the creatures inside while doing your best to mend them.

You may come across some useful items that might help your survival, but those items are always random and your inventory is limited to 5 slots, so your gear changes by night.

Survive until sunrise and the monsters disappear, but if they get you before the sun peeks over the horizon, well, just the idea is terrifying.”

Assassin’s Creed 3 Details + Graphics: American Revolution Meets Illuminati? [UPDATE]

[UPDATE] Check out these Assassin’s Creed III Pre-Order bonuses from GameStop which are some awesome looking steel books!

assassins creed 3 steel book pre order

Assassin’s Creed III has been seeing some images being leaked, but don’t worry these aren’t some doctored up fan-fiction images. These are the real deal. Check out the screenshots below:

Now, you must ask yourself; how exactly are they going to play out the story of the American Revolution within the backdrop of the Assassin’s Creed storyline without including the heavily controversial history of America’s secret societies and their ties with the illuminati. Who Ubisoft will choose as the enemies in this tale and how they decide to tell the intricate details of the weaving of America’s foundation with the prime evil of secrecy will certainly be an industry-defining moment and a sight to see. Here’s to hoping it doesn’t turn out one big propaganda project.

Here are some more details stolen from the latest GameInformer by a NeoGaf user and summarized by GameRant (because it’s okay to rob magazines in the future apparently) ***WARNING SOME POSSIBLE SPOILERS:

  • “New hero called Connor/Ratohnhake:ton (pronounced Ra-doon-ha-gay-doo). He has an English father and Native American mother.
  • A new traversal approach that has players leaping and climbing trees and mountain cliffs.
  • Combat is focused on putting you on the offensive and based on speed/momentum. The main character has thousands of new and unique animations (no carry over from other titles) to support the new combat system. There’s no more target locking, it just automatically detects your target. Counter/defense are the same button to prevent turtling.
  • Connor is in the heart of major battles, and they can now have a couple thousand guys on screen, whereas before it was capped at about 100.
  • There will be all sorts of wilderness in the game referred to as the Frontier. The map of the Frontier is 1.5 times bigger than the entire map of Brotherhood.
  • The world changes as time passes, so a field where a battle happened in one year may just be a series of empty encampments a few months later. The entire world will change with seasons, so the cities and the wilderness will all exist in both Summer and Winter settings.
  • You can now leap over wagons or slide under obstacles, including navigating over and around moving objects. The free running stuff also has you jumping through windows to trees and then on top of church roofs.
  • This game has the longest development cycle since AC1, and has twice the production capacity (in terms of work hours) and budget of Revelations.”
