Here is our first look at the awesome Gears of War 3 Retro Lancer replica from NECA revealed today by Epic Games. The Lancer will be available exclusively through GameStop. The gun was designed after the same 3D data used by Epic in the game including its weathered effects. The Lancer is over three and a half feet in length and makes machine gun sound effects. It will be available in several pre-order bundles or as a standalone product for $99.99 available on September 13, a full week before Gears of War 3 launches on September 20.

Xbox broke for the 5th time. guess ill get a new one just for GOW3

From playing the beta, it seems like they fixed all the complaints with GOW 2 and implemented them into GOW 3. Hopefully it stays that way once the full game releases.

Casual Mode?

Originally posted by Inactive User
The developers of Gears of War 3 want it to be the perfect Gears game for newcomers to the series. Even though it's the third entry, it should be the easiest to pick up and play, they say. To that end, they're implementing an exclusive "casual" mode for Gears of War 3 multiplayer that can only be accessed by people who have never played Gears before.

If you have any achievements from Gears 1 or 2, or if you played the Gears of War 3 beta, you cannot access the Casual multiplayer mode. Casual players will be granted aim assist, but no other details about the mode were given.

This announcement was made during the Gears of War 3 panel here at Comic-Con 2011.

I would just love to see the looks you get walking down the street with that retro lancer.

Even though I ditched my 360, im still anticipating this game

Why wouldnt you?

i like the idea of the casual mode. good for new players to the franchise, and good for those of us who know how to play and not having to turn off those stupid tutorial tips anymore

Hyped for this GOW III. Gameplay is a lot better than GOW II to be honest after playing the beta.

shotgun is a close range 1 hitter quitter.
deadly as fuck,but some ♥♥♥♥♥s complain about it because it ends ♥♥♥♥♥s careers swiftly.

I used to be heavy on Gears but now I don't feel like reviving my dead ass 360.

The game is like a fusion of the previous games. It has fast gameplay and style of the first game, but the mechanics and smoothness of the second. They seriously outdid themselves with this game... it is a solid 10; the perfect Gears of War.

All the weapons are like a combination of both games as well. Gnasher works like in the first game with faster rounds and registering gibs but it still looks and feels like the dreaded Gnasher in the second. Same thing with the LongShot too.

And the connection is always great. Maybe 1 game out of 10 might be a bit laggy but I assure that the full game will be lag free. The graphics are amazing, the gameplay is amazing, the new weapons and mechanics are amazing. The only problem I saw is that some maps needed arrangements in terms of camping and spawn trapping and the Retro Lancer needed to be nerfed by a tad bit (which I believe they announced? not sure).

Beta was a 95% for me.
