Reader match! Play the Gears of War 3 beta with us on Thursday at 7 PM EST / 4 PM PST

You. Us. Chainsaws. Chickens. What more could you ask for on a Thursday night?

For two hours, starting at 7:00 PM EST / 4:00 PM PST on May 5, we’ll be sacrificing our pride and dignity upon the blades of your bayonets. Come for the chance to compete against us… stay for the chance to humiliate us completely! Also, we can talk and answer questions and stuff.

Interested? Sign online at the appointed time and send a friend request to any (but not all) of the following:


We’ll be clearing our friend lists that morning, so please be patient and avoid spamming us until a couple hours before the match. Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for any last-minute details or changes.

Until Thursday, then! Hope you’ll join us.

    If anyone still needs a Gears Of War 3 beta key, I found some being handed out on a blog. I don't know if any of the keys are left, but you can try here:
