Tuesday usual: Radio Wammo and I talk Gears of War 3 (and The Gunstringer)
Two posts in one day? Wowsers, that’s incredible.
With Gears of War 3 launching at midnight this morning (Tuesday, September 20), Glenn Williams and I talked about Gears of War 3’s campaign mode today – which I think is bloody brilliant. The best campaign yet – and not a giant worm to be seen anywhere. I played a little bit of the multiplayer and Beast mode tonight so I don’t really have a strong opinion on those yet: give me another couple of days.
We also talked about The Gunslinger, a game for Microsoft’s Kinect where you control the movements of, well, The Gunslinger, a skeleton cowboy who’s come back from the dead and is out to get his posse who did him wrong. You use your left hand to move The Gunslinger left and right and pull it up to make him jump, and use your right hand to paint targets and shot them by pulling your right hand upwards, as if firing a real gun.
It’s a quirky game that works and has a good sense of humour.
Have a watch and let me know what you think in the comments section.
