Gears of War 3 beta footage: Who wants to see a Locust get his head kicked into stew?

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 issweet as well. And Anya's mantle-melee/knee-cap/hopper grenade tag combo isanamazingrun of meaty mess-making, In fact all of it's brilliant. I want it now. The beta teststart-date ofApril 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?

These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
