All of you? Good. You never let me down, internet, you never let me down. Well maybe not quite "never". Last night was a complete write-off. But yeah, except in the case of overly-hyperbolous labelling on eastern European video torrents, you never let me down.
You know what else isn't a let-down? This preview video of Gears of War 3's multiplayer component. New executions, new melee tactics, new weapons, new gadgets. It's basically a total winner, and you should watch it ASAP.
Unlike that torrent. Seriously, it wasn't even real snuff. Totally faked. Obvious.
Favourite bits? I love the utter detonation of that Locust's head with the digger-launcher execution at the beginning. That Arkham Asylum-style tac-com view is sweet as well. And Anya's mantle-melee/knee-cap/hopper grenade tag combo is an amazing run of meaty mess-making, In fact all of it's brilliant. I want it now. The beta test start-date of April the 25th is now a great big filthy tease. But unlike last night, it's one that might actually deliver. You looking forward to it?
