My Review of Gears of War
(via Wildchicken) - Like a lot of people, I've been playing Gears of War on my 360. Since its release I've played a a few ranked games with strangers and quite a few more games with friends.

I Want It, and I Want It NOW
(via Wildchicken) - I need to explain something to some people. There is apparently a misconception that something like an Xbox 360 update takes something like 3 days for us to design, develop, and test. Okay, maybe a week, tops.   Even though I would love to live in a world where something that complex can happen that quickly, that's not how it works.

I squish your head
(via CliffyB's Blog) - With all of the promotional stuff that's been going on for Gears of War lately I've been zipping all over the place and have become slightly rusty at the game itself. No more. Since the game hit store shelves I've been boning up on my shooting/chainsawing skills. And I'm getting my trigger finger in shape like Rocky running through the Russian tundra with a giant log on my back.
